IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
CHILD SAFETY
It Makes A Difference How and Where You Use Your Flat Panel Display
Congratulations on your purchase! As you enjoy your new product, please keep these safety tips
in mind:
THE ISSUE
•• The home theater entertainment experience is a growing trend and larger
flat panel displays are popular purchases. However, flat panel displays are
not always supported on the proper stands or installed according to the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
•• Flat panel displays that are inappropriately situated on dressers, bookcases,
shelves, desks, speakers, chests or carts may fall over and cause injury.
THIS MANUFACTURER CARES!
•• The consumer electronics industry is committed to making home
entertainment enjoyable and safe.
TUNE INTO SAFETY
•• One size does NOT fit all. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for
the safe installation and use of your flat panel display.
•• Carefully read and understand all enclosed instructions for proper use of this
product.
•• Don’t allow children to climb on or play with furniture and television sets.
•• Don’t place flat panel displays on furniture that can easily be used as steps,
such as a chest of drawers.
•• Remember that children can become excited while watching a program,
especially on a “larger than life” flat panel display. Care should be taken
to place or install the display where it cannot be pushed, pulled over, or
knocked down.
•• Care should be taken to route all cords and cables connected to the flat
panel display so that they cannot be pulled or grabbed by curious children.
WALL MOUNTING: IF YOU DECIDE TO WALL MOUNT YOUR FLAT PANEL DISPLAY,
ALWAYS:
•• Use a mount that has been recommended by the display manufacturer and/or listed by an
independent laboratory (such as UL, CSA, ETL).
•• Follow all instructions supplied by the display and wall mount manufacturers.
•• If you have any doubts about your ability to safely install your flat panel display, contact your retailer
about professional installation.
•• Make sure that the wall where you are mounting the display is appropriate. Some wall mounts are not
designed to be mounted to walls with steel studs or old cinder block construction. If you are unsure,
contact a professional installer.
•• A minimum of two people are required for installation. Flat panel displays can be heavy.

Preparation
Antennas
To enjoy a clearer picture, use an outdoor antenna. The following is a brief explanation of
the types of connections that are used for a coaxial cable. If your outdoor antenna uses
a 75-ohm coaxial cable with an F-type connector, plug it into the antenna terminal at the
rear of the TV set.
1. A 75-ohm system is generally a round
cable with F-type connector that can
easily be attached to a terminal without
tools (Commercially available).
2. A 300-ohm system is a flat “twin-lead”
cable that can be attached to a 75-ohm
terminal through a 300/75-ohm adapter
(Commercially available).
When connecting the RF cable to the TV set,
do not tighten F-type connector with tools.
If tools are used, it may cause damage to
your TV set. (The breaking of internal circuit,
etc.)

temperature. This does not affect the TV’s performance.
Cautions regarding use in high and low temperature environments
•• When the unit is used in a low temperature space (e.g. room, office), the picture
may leave trails or appear slightly delayed. This is not a malfunction, and the unit will
recover when the temperature returns to normal.
•• Do not leave the unit in a hot or cold location. Also, do not leave the unit in a location
exposed to direct sunlight or near a heater, as this may cause the cabinet to deform
and the Liquid Crystal panel to malfunction.
