When Reading this Manual
When you see this symbol, please read the
accompanying important warning or notice. It is
intended to alert you to the presence of important
operating instructions.
When you see this symbol, please read the
accompanying helpful tip.
• Clean only with a dry cloth.
• Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
• Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators,
heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including
amplifiers) that produce heat.
• Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or
grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades
and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third
prong are provided for your safety. If the provided plug
does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the obsolete outlet.
• Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched,
particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the
point where they exit from the apparatus.
• Only use attachments/accessories specified by the
manufacturer.
• Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket,
or table specified by the manufacturer, or sold

with the apparatus. When a cart is used, use
caution when moving the cart/apparatus
combination to avoid injury from tip-over.
• Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when
unused for long periods of time.
• Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing
is required when the apparatus has been damaged in
any way, such as when the power-supply cord or plug is
damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen
into the apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to
rain or moisture, does not operate normally or has been
dropped.
• Unplug the power cord before cleaning your TV.
• When moving your TV from an area of low temperature
to an area of high temperature, condensation may form
in the housing. Wait before turning on your TV to avoid
causing fire, electric shock, or component damage.
• Do not apply pressure or throw objects at your TV.
This may compromise the integrity of the display. The
manufacturer’s warranty does not cover user abuse or
improper installations.
• The power cord must be replaced when using different
voltage than the voltage specified. For more information,
contact your dealer.
• Your TV is equipped with a three-pronged grounded plug
(a plug with a third grounding pin). This plug will fit only
into a grounded power outlet. This is a safety feature. If
your outlet does not accommodate the three-pronged,
have an electrician install the correct outlet, or use an
adapter to ground your TV safely. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the grounded plug.
• When connected to a power outlet, power is always
flowing into your TV. To totally disconnect power, unplug
the power cord.
• A distance of at least three feet should be maintained
between your TV and any heat source, such as a radiator,
heater, oven, amplifier etc. Do not install your TV close to
smoke. Operating your TV close to smoke or moisture may
cause fire or electric shock.
• The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol within an
equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the
presence of un-isolated, dangerous voltage within the
inside of your TV that may be of sufficient magnitude to
constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
• Slots and openings in the back and bottom of the
cabinet are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable
operation of your TV and to protect it from overheating,
be sure these openings are not blocked or covered. Do
not place your TV in a bookcase or cabinet unless proper
ventilation is provided.
• The wall socket should be installed near your TV and
easily accessible.
• Never push any object into the slots and openings on
your TV cabinet. Do not place any objects on the top of
your TV. Doing so could short circuit parts causing a fire
or electric shock. Never spill liquids on your TV.
• Your TV should be operated only from the type of power
source indicated on the label. If you are not sure of the
type of power supplied to your home, consult your dealer
or local power company.
• Do not overload power strips and extension cords.
Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
• Only power of the marked voltage can be used for your
TV. Any other voltage than the specified voltage may
cause fire or electric shock.
• Do not touch the power cord during lightning. To avoid
electric shock, avoid handling the power cord during
electrical storms.
• Unplug your TV during a lightning storm or when it will not
be used for long period of time. This will protect your TV
from damage due to power surges.
• Do not attempt to repair or service your TV yourself.

Opening or removing the back cover may expose you to
high voltages, electric shock, and other hazards. If repair
is required, contact your dealer and refer all servicing to
qualified service personnel.
• WARNING: Keep your TV away from moisture. Do not
expose your TV to rain or moisture. If water penetrates into
your TV, unplug the power cord and contact your dealer.
Continuous use in this case may result in fire or electric
shock.
• Do not use your TV if any abnormality occurs. If any
smoke or odor becomes apparent, unplug the power
cord and contact your dealer immediately. Do not try to
repair your TV yourself.
• Avoid using dropped or damaged appliances. If your
TV is dropped and the housing is damaged, the internal
components may function abnormally. Unplug the power
cord immediately and contact your dealer for repair.
Continued use of your TV may cause fire or electric
shock.
• Do not install your TV in an area with heavy dust or high
humidity. Operating your TV in environments with heavy
dust or high humidity may cause fire or electric shock.
• Follow instructions for moving your TV. Ensure that the
power cord and any other cables are unplugged before
moving your TV.
• When unplugging your TV, hold the AC/DC power
adapter, not the cord. Pulling on the power cord may
damage the wires inside the cord and cause fire or
electric shock. When your TV will not be used for an
extended period of time, unplug the power cord.
• To reduce risk of electric shock, do not touch the
connector with wet hands.
• Insert batteries in accordance with instructions. Incorrect
polarities may cause the batteries to leak which can
damage the remote control or injure the operator. Do not
expose batteries to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire
or the like.
• If any of the following occurs, contact the dealer:
- The power cord fails or frays.
- Liquid sprays or any object drops into your TV.
- Your TV is exposed to rain or other moisture.
- Your TV is dropped or damaged in any way.
- The performance of your TV changes substantially.
• This apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping or
splashing and no objects fill with liquids, such as vases,
shall be placed on the apparatus.
• The mains plug or appliance coupler is used as the
disconnect device, the disconnect device shall remain
readily operable.
• CAUTION - These servicing instructions are for use by
qualified service personnel only. To reduce the risk of
electric shock, do not perform any servicing other than

Television Antenna Connection Protection
If an outside antenna/satellite dish or cable system is to be
connected to the TV, make sure that the antenna or cable system
is electrically grounded to provide some protection against
voltage surges and static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPSA 70,
provides information with regard to proper grounding of the
mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to
an antenna discharge unit, size of the grounding conductors,
location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements of the grounding electrode.
Ground Clamp
Lightning Protection
For added protection of the TV during a lightning storm or when
it is left unattended or unused for long periods of time, unplug
the TV from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable
system.
Power Lines
Do not locate the antenna near overhead light or power circuits,
or where it could fall into such power lines or circuits. Remember,
the screen of the coaxial cable is intended to be connected to
earth in the building installation.

1. General. The software, documentation and any fonts accompanying
this License Agreement whether on disk, in read only memory, on any
other media or in any other form (collectively the “VIZIO Software”) are
licensed, not sold, to you by VIZIO, Inc. (“VIZIO”) for use only under the
terms of this License Agreement, and VIZIO reserves all rights not expressly
granted to you. The rights granted herein are limited to VIZIO’s and its third
party licensors’ intellectual property rights in the VIZIO Software and do
not include any other patents or intellectual property rights. You own the
media on which the VIZIO Software is recorded or resides but VIZIO and/or
its licensor(s) retain ownership of the VIZIO Software itself. The terms of this
License Agreement will govern any software upgrades provided or made
available by or through VIZIO that replace and/or supplement the original
VIZIO Software, unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate license
in which case the terms of that license will govern.
2. Permitted Uses and Restrictions. This License Agreement allows you to
use the VIZIO Software and, through functions solely found within the VIZIO
HD TV, this Agreement also allows you to install upgrades thereto. The VIZIO
Software may be used to access VIA Services and view materials so long
as such use is limited to materials in which you are authorized or legally
permitted to view. You may not make the VIZIO Software or VIA Services
available over a network or where it could be used by multiple televisions
at the same time. Except as and only to the extent expressly permitted in
this License Agreement or by applicable law, you may not copy, decompile,
reverse engineer, disassemble, modify, or create derivative works of the
VIZIO Software or any part thereof. THE VIZIO SOFTWARE AND VIA SERVICES
ARE NOT INTENDED FOR USE IN ANY EQUIPMENT OR ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH
THE FAILURE OF THE VIZIO SOFTWARE OR VIA SERVICES COULD LEAD TO DEATH,
PERSONAL INJURY, OR SEVERE PHYSICAL OR ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE.
3. Transfer. You may not rent, lease, lend, redistribute or sublicense the VIZIO
Software or access to the VIA Services. You may, however, make a one-time
permanent transfer of all of your license rights to the VIZIO Software to
another party, provided that: (a) the transfer must include the VIZIO HD TV,
including all its component parts, original media, printed materials and this
License Agreement; (b) you do not retain any copies of the VIZIO Software,
full or partial, including copies stored on a computer or other storage device;
and (c) the party receiving the VIZIO HD TV and VIZIO Software reads and
agrees to accept the terms and conditions of this License Agreement.
4. Consent to Use of Collected Data. You agree that VIZIO and its third party
providers of VIA Services may collect and use technical, non-technical and
D
related information, including but not limited to information about your
use of the VIZIO Software, the VIA Services, content viewed and attached
peripherals, products or services purchased, that is gathered periodically
to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other
services to you, including additional or different VIA Services related to
the VIZIO Software and to verify compliance with the terms of this License
Agreement. VIZIO and its third party providers of VIA Services and/or other
providers may use this information, as long as it is in a form that does not
personally identify you, to improve our products or to provide services or
technologies to you.
5. VIA Services and other Services. The VIZIO software affords the opportunity
to access third party Internet product offerings or services (“VIA Services”).
The VIA Services accessible herein are provided as per our agreement with
certain third parties. These agreements are subject to change, interruption,
suspension, removal (including termination) at any time and for various
reasons. Moreover, VIZIO or its third party providers of VIA Services reserve the
right to delete data from their servers, or prevent access to their servers or to
change data categories, product offerings or service levels for any reason
that VIZIO or said third parties deem sufficient in their sole discretion at any
time, without notice. VIZIO may also impose additional or different limits on
the use of or access to certain VIA Services, in any case and without notice
or liability. VIZIO makes no warranties or representations that any particular
VIA Service will be accessible, available, function in any particular manner
or function at all.
Use of the VIA Services may require you to accept additional terms of
service or end user license agreements which will be presented to you
before you can use such Services. Some or all of the data, functionality of
VIA Services may require additional payment by you. However, in no event
will you be charged for any VIA Services unless those charges are made
available to you in advance.
6. Disclaimer as to Content on VIA Services. Certain VIA Services may include
materials from third parties or links to certain third party data servers. You
acknowledge and agree that VIZIO is not responsible for examining or
evaluating the content or accuracy of any VIA Services, their data servers
or related third-party materials. VIZIO does not warrant or endorse and
does not assume and will not have any liability or responsibility for any
third-party materials or websites, or for any other materials, products, or
services of third parties. Links to VIA Services and any associated links to
other data servers are provided solely as a convenience to you. To the
extent provided, content types or descriptions of VIA Services provided
for convenience, and you acknowledge and agree that VIZIO does not
guarantee their accuracy. You understand that by using any of the VIA
Services, you may encounter content that may be deemed offensive,

indecent, or objectionable, which content may or may not be identified as

at your sole risk and that VIZIO shall have no liability to you for content that
may be found to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable.

under no obligation, to provide you with customer support and/or software
upgrades, enhancements, or modifications to the VIZIO Software or VIA
Services (collectively, “Support”), in its sole discretion, and may terminate
such Support at any time without notice to you. VIZIO and its third party
providers reserve the right to charge you for any Support it provides but will
make a schedule of those charges available to you prior to your incurring
any costs.

11. Disclaimer of Warranties. YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE
THAT USE OF THE VIZIO SOFTWARE AND VIA SERVICES (AS DEFINED ABOVE) IS
AT YOUR SOLE RISK AND THAT THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO SATISFACTORY QUALITY,
PERFORMANCE, ACCURACY AND EFFORT IS WITH YOU. EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED
WARRANTY ON MEDIA SET FORTH ABOVE AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT
PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE VIZIO SOFTWARE AND VIA SERVICES
ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY
KIND, AND VIZIO AND VIZIO’S THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS OF VIA SERVICES AND
THIRD PARTY LICENSORS (COLLECTIVELY REFERRED TO AS “VIZIO” FOR THE
PURPOSES OF SECTIONS 10 AND 11) HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND
CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE VIZIO SOFTWARE AND SERVICES, EITHER
EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED
WARRANTIES AND/OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, OF SATISFACTORY

OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT DEFECTS IN THE VIZIO SOFTWARE OR VIA SERVICES

GIVEN BY VIZIO OR A VIZIO AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE SHALL CREATE A
WARRANTY. SHOULD THE VIA SOFTWARE OR VIA SERVICES PROVE DEFECTIVE,
YOU ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR
CORRECTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS ON APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF

TO YOU.

VIA SERVICES, HOWEVER CAUSED, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY
(CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) AND EVEN IF VIZIO HAS BEEN ADVISED OF
THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW
THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY, OR OF INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
In no event shall VIZIO’s total liability to you for all damages (other than
as may be required by applicable law in cases involving personal injury)
exceed the amount of twenty five dollars ($25.00). The foregoing limitations
will apply even if the above stated remedy fails of its essential purpose.
