Proper handling and disposal of Sony products containing mercury
A limited number of Sony products and replacement parts contain very small quantity of mercury within lamp components. These products include products with display panels using CCFL backlight and projector products with a user replaceable lamp. Products with display panels using LED backlight or laser projector products do not contain mercury.
Please dispose of any Sony product containing mercury in accordance with applicable local and federal laws and regulations, especially in the event of a broken lamp component due to accidental breakage.
