Important Safety Precautions
• Cleaning — Unplug the AC cord
from the AC outlet before cleaning
the product. Use a damp cloth to
clean the product. Do not use liquid
cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
• Water and moisture — Do not use
the product near water, such as
bathtub, washbasin, kitchen sink,
laundry tub, swimming pool and in a
wet basement.
• Do not place vases or any other
water-filled containers on this
product.
The water may spill onto the product
causing fire or electric shock.
• Stand — Do not place the product
on an unstable cart, stand, tripod
or table. Doing so can cause the
product to fall, resulting in serious
personal injuries as well as damage
to the product. Use only a cart,
stand, tripod, bracket or table
recommended by the manufacturer
or sold with the product. When
mounting the product on a wall, be
sure to follow the manufacturer's
instructions. Use only the mounting
hardware recommended by the
manufacturer.
• When relocating the product
placed on a cart, it must be moved
with utmost care. Sudden stops,
excessive force and uneven floor
surface can cause the product to fall
from the cart.
• Ventilation — The vents and other
openings in the cabinet are designed
for ventilation. Do not cover or block
these vents and openings since
insufficient ventilation can cause
overheating and/or shorten the life
of the product. Do not place the
product on a bed, sofa, rug or other
similar surface, since they can block
ventilation openings. This product is
not designed for built-in installation;
do not place the product in an
enclosed place such as a bookcase
or rack, unless proper ventilation
is provided or the manufacturer's
instructions are followed.
• The LCD panel used in this product
is made of glass. Therefore, it can
break when the product is struck
forcefully or with a sharp object. If
the LCD panel is broken, be careful
not to be injured by broken glass.
• Heat sources — Keep the product
away from heat sources such as
radiators, heaters, stoves and other
heat-generating products (including
amplifiers).
• To prevent fire, never place any type
of candle or naked flames on the
top or near the TV set.
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do
not place the AC power cord under
the TV set or other heavy items.
• Do not place heavy objects on this
product or stand on it. Doing so
could cause injury if the product
overturns. Take special care near
children and pets.
The LCD panel is a very high technology product
with 3,147,264 thin film transistors, giving you fine
picture details.
Due to the very large number of pixels, occasionally
a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen
as a fixed point of blue, green or red.
This is within product specifications and does not
constitute a fault.
Precautions when
transporting the TV
Be sure to always carry the TV
by two people holding it with two
hands — one hand on each side
of the TV.
• Do not display a still picture for a long time, as this could
cause an afterimage to remain.
• Install the product on the place where the AC cord can
be unplugged easily from the AC outlet, or from the AC
INPUT terminal on the rear of the product.

Preparation
Inserting the batteries
Before using the TV for the first time, insert two “AAA” size batteries (supplied). When the batteries become
depleted and the remote control fails to operate, replace the batteries with new “AAA” size batteries.

CAUTION
Improper use of batteries can result in chemical leakage or explosion. Be sure to follow the instructions below.
• Do not mix batteries of different types. Different types of batteries have different characteristics.
• Do not mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new batteries or cause chemical
leakage in old batteries.
• Remove batteries as soon as they have worn out. Chemicals that leak from batteries can cause a rash. If you find any
chemical leakage, wipe thoroughly with a cloth.
• The batteries supplied with this product may have a shorter life expectancy due to storage conditions.
• If you will not be using the remote control unit for an extended period of time, remove the batteries from it.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Solution
• No power.
• Check if you pressed POWER on the remote control unit. (See page 13.)
If the indicator on the TV lights up red, press POWER.
• Is the AC cord disconnected? (See page 7.)
• Has the power been turned on? (See page 13.)
• Unit cannot be operated.
• External influences such as lightning, static electricity, etc., may cause improper
operation. In this case, operate the unit after first turning the power off the TV or
unplugging the AC cord and re-plugging it in after 1 or 2 minutes.
• Remote control unit does not
operate.
•
•
•
•
• Picture is cut off.
• Is the image position correct? (See page 40.)
• Are screen mode adjustments such as picture size made correctly? (See pages 40,
43 to 44.)
• Strange colour, light colour, or
dark, or colour misalignment.
•
•
•
•
• Power is suddenly turned off.
• The unit’s internal temperature has increased.
Remove any objects blocking vent or clean.
• Check the power control setting. (See pages 27 to 28.)
• Is sleep timer set? (See page 15.)
• No picture.
•
•
•
•
•
•
• No sound.
• Is the volume too low? (See page 15.)
• The TV sometimes makes a
cracking sound.
• This is not a mulfunction. This happens when the cabinet slightly expands and
contracts according to change in temperature. This does not affect the TV’s
performance.
Are batteries inserted with polarity (e, f) aligned? (See page 5.)
Are batteries worn out? (Replace with new batteries.)
Are you using it under strong or fluorescent lighting?
Is a fluorescent light illuminated to remote control sensor?
Adjust the picture tone. (See pages 24 to 26 and 46.)
Is the room too bright? The picture may look dark in a room that is too bright.
Check the colour system setting. (See pages 20 and 48.)
Check the input signal setting. (See page 46.)
Is connection to other equipment correct? (See pages 55 to 58)
Has input signal setup been done correctly after connection? (See page 46.)
Is the correct input selected? (See page 46.)
Is picture adjustment correct? (See pages 24 to 26.)
Is the antenna connected properly? (See page 8.)
Is “On” selected in “Audio Only”? (See page 47.)
Troubleshooting (DTV)
Problem
Possible Solution
• No picture or no sound.
• Is the correct input source selected? (See page 46.)
• Block noise appears on the
screen.
•
•
•
•
• DTV broadcasts cannot be
received.
• Is the DTV antenna set up properly?
• Is the antenna cable connected properly? (See page 8.)
• Are the channel settings correct? (See pages 34 and 35.)
• A specific channel cannot be
received.
• Check the Signal Level and Quality. (See page 34.)
Is the antenna pointing in the correct direction?
Check the Signal Level and Quality. (See page 34.)
Are physical objects blocking the antenna?
Is the antenna or antenna cable compatible with DTV broadcasts?
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 LCD panel to malfunction.
Storage temperature: f20°C to e60°C.
