ENGLISH
Safety precautions
Water
Turn off the power and
unplug the power cord
from the wall outlet
immediately if the TV
set begins to make any
unusual noises or gives
off smoke or an unusual
smell. Then call your
dealer for service.
To prevent fire or
electrical shock, do not
place the TV set near a
bath, swimming pool or
other area where it may
become wet.
Moisture
Servicing
To prevent electrical
shock, do not use the TV
set in an excessively
damp place.
To reduce the risk of
electric shock, do not
remove the back of the
cabinet. This TV set
contains dangerous
voltage.
Unstable surface and shocks
Power-cord protection
To prevent electrical
shock, do not subject the
AC power cord to damage
by bending or twisting it,
or by placing heavy items
on top of it and do not
place the AC power cord
under the TV set. If the AC
power cord becomes
damaged, unplug it from
the wall outlet immediately
and call your dealer for
service.
Do not place this TV set
on an unstable cart,
stand, shelf, or table. The
TV set may fall, causing
serious injury to a child
or adult, and serious
damage to the set.
Sharp recommends
securing the TV set to a
stable surface or wall to
prevent the set from
falling due to sudden
shocks or impact.
Liquid entry
Ventilation
Do not place a flower
vase or anything else
containing liquid on the
TV set, as liquid spilt on
the TV set can cause
electrical shock or
failure.
Object entry
Do not place this TV set
in a confined area, such
as on a bookshelf or in a
built-in case. Leave
adequate space behind
the TV for proper
ventilation.
TV Set position
Never insert or drop any
metallic or inflammable
objects into the
ventilation openings of
the TV set, as this can
cause fire, electrical
shock, or electrical
failure.
Do place the TV set onto
an even stand, table or
track which size is bigger
than the TV set.
If the TV set is put onto a
smaller size or uneven
stand, table or track may
cause the TV cabinet distort.

between TV set and the
stand, table or track.

DIN45325 plug (IEC 169-2), plug it into the antenna jack at the rear of the
set.
If your outdoor antenna uses a 300-ohm twin-lead flat feeder, connect a
300-ohm to 75-ohm impedance converter and plug it into the antenna jack
at the rear of the set.
