How can I find my TV model name and serial number?

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    For an optimal journey on the Sony Support website, it’s important to search for your specific product. Your product page is the best access point for loads of information.

    Every TV model has an individual model name and serial number. There are three ways to find them:

    1. The Settings menu
    2. The sticker on the back of your TV
    3. The original box/packaging 

    Click here to go to the section: Blu-ray Disc Players and Home Cinema systems.

    1. Check the Settings menu

    Depending on whether your TV is an Android TV or not, the procedure may vary slightly.

    3. The original box

    In case you cannot access the TV settings menu, or your TV is wall-mounted so you can’t see your sticker, you can always check the original product packaging or the user manual.

    (1) The Model Name  
    (2) The 7-digit serial number

    Question: What does my model name mean?

    Each model name is not a random sequence of numbers. The name contains certain information:

    1. The first part of the model name (before the hyphen) indicates the TV’s resolution: 2K (KDL) and 4K (KD). 
    2. The numbers after the numbers after the hyphen indicates the screen size in inches 
    3. The final sequence of letters and numbers conveys a certain production series. That’s more important for support and repair purposes 
      • The last letter can indicate a variance in the colour of the bezel and frame or stand 
      • If the letter starts with an "A", that means it is part of our OLED lineup 

    Things to keep in mind...

    • When searching for general information on the support site, please use the model name
    • Here are some examples of correct model names: KD-55X8507C, KDL-32EX710 and KD-55AG9
