Can the 3D glasses from an older Sony 3D TV be used on a new Sony 3D TV?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

No, since some Sony® 3D TVs released after 2013 need to be paired to the supplied 3D glasses. For further details on how to pair your 3D glasses to the Sony TV, check the operating instructions that came with the TV. Manuals are posted on your model support page.

There are two types of 3D glasses, which are the Passive 3D glasses and the Active 3D glasses. To check which type of 3D glasses your TV supports, check the operating instructions supplied with your TV.

NOTE: Additional information about the difference between active and passive glasses  is available.
