Setting up a connection to Sony servers
The Sony Bravia screen will ask for permission to send data to Sony’s servers to improve the TV’s functionality. It is worth allowing the sending of data, since if you refuse, then further advancement through the settings menu will be suspended.
The transfer of data does not indicate personal information of users, only technical data. When this function is enabled, the TV will be able to download new software for the most convenient operation. You can also reset the installed software to factory settings at any time. A PIN code is set to set parental controls. It helps parents to close access to certain channels or Internet resources. The code consists of any four digits that are easy to remember.
Turn on the TV
Before turning on Smart TV and setting up channels, you should connect all equipment (players, speakers, antennas) to the appropriate connectors. Turning on for the first time activates the initial setup mode. After pressing the power button, you need to wait about 20-30 seconds. At this time, you do not need to press anything on the remote control. When the TV is on, information will appear where you will be asked to select the menu language and the type of network connection (Wi-Fi or cable).
Next, you need to select a region in the menu. Regardless of the selected country, Sony Bravia immediately adjusts to the standards of the selected region.
Instructions to set up Sony Bravia Smart TVs after purchase
After purchasing a Sony Bravia TV, when you first turn it on, it becomes necessary to configure it. The new product always comes with an instruction brochure. But do not be surprised at its small thickness. This does not mean that the set of functions is limited. The basic settings are not on the instruction pages, but in the memory of the TV itself.
You can turn on the necessary functions or set up channels at any time: for this, there is an “i-Manual” button on the control panel. It brings up the menu regardless of the Sony Bravia operating mode.
First you need to properly install the TV. The main condition for installing the panel is its perpendicular position. It is this position that the manufacturer advises to obtain an optimal image. It is not recommended to install the panel so that you need to look at it from top to bottom, bottom to top or from the side.
For an optimal picture and no harm to eyesight, the distance to the screen should be at least 2.5-3 diagonals. It is important to position the panel so that the lights in the room do not give glare to the screen. Luminaires placed nearby will reflect on the screen, distorting the image.
When installing Sony Bravia, it is worth remembering not only the comfort of viewing, but also pay due attention to safety. During long-term operation, the device inevitably heats up, and for cooling it needs a constant flow of air. Insufficient ventilation will lead to overheating of the electronics and failure earlier than the service life.
Often the model is mounted in a niche in the wall, where air access is difficult. Avoid this installation method or provide sufficient space. there should be space between the back of the TV and the wall. To avoid overheating, it is not recommended to install heaters nearby or hang the TV directly above heating radiators, as heating will lead to discoloration of the material and deformation.
When placing the TV on a table or nightstand, it is important to ensure that the furniture is stable. For fall protection, electronics often come with a special strap that attaches the Bravia to the stand.
The channels are tuned depending on what type of antenna is connected to the TV. The first step is to auto-tune the satellite dish, if available. Next, digital and analog television are set up. Digital channels are configured depending on the type of cable. For more information on the type of cable, contact the company that provides digital TV services.
Setting up an analog TV is easy. The TV searches automatically, which takes only 2-3 minutes. Then the time and sound are set, after which it remains only to click the “Finish” button.
