Introduction
Precautions For Daily Use
Observe the following items
Maintenance of the cabinet
• When cleaning the cabinet, use a soft cloth (made of cotton, floss, etc.) to clean gently.
• Do not use a dry or damp rag mixed with chemicals, as this could cause the ingredients of the cabinet body to deteriorate or
crack.
• Be careful not to use an abrasive cloth for cleaning or clean with excessive force, as this could scratch the surface of the
cabinet.
• If the cabinet is greatly soiled, clean with a soft cloth (made of cotton, floss, etc.) soaked with a small amount of diluted neutral
detergent and wrung out, and then clean with a soft dry cloth.
• Solvents such as benzene or thinner could cause the cabinet to deteriorate, or make its coating come off. Therefore do not use
such solvents to clean the cabinet.
• Because plasticizer is included in the plastics, deterioration or the coating peeling off could occur when the cabinet comes into
contact with some substances. Therefore keep it away from volatile substances such as insecticide. In addition, do not let it
come into contact with objects made of rubber, resin, etc. for a long time.
Maintenance of the LCD panel
• Before cleaning the LCD panel, be sure to turn off the TV set and unplug the power cord from the outlet.
• When cleaning the LCD panel, use a dry and soft cloth (made of cotton, floss, etc.) to clean the surface of the LCD panel gently.
For protecting the LCD panel, do not clean with a dirty cloth, detergent, or a dry or damp rag mixed with chemicals, as this
could cause peeling of the panel surface.
• Be careful not to clean with an abrasive cloth or with excessive force, as this could cause the panel surface to be scratched.
• If the LCD panel is greatly soiled, clean it gently with a soft cloth (made of cotton, floss, etc.) soaked with a small amount of
water (Do not clean with excessive force, so as to avoid the scratch of the panel surface).
• If dust sticks on the surface of the LCD panel, clean the panel with a commercially available cleaning brush (anti-static brush).
Important safety precautions
Caring for the cabinet
Caring for the front panel
• Use a soft cloth (cotton, flannel, etc.) and gently wipe the
surface of the cabinet.
• Using a chemical cloth (wet/dry sheet type cloth, etc.) may
deform the components of the main unit cabinet or cause
cracking.
• Wiping with a hard cloth or using strong force may scratch
the surface of the cabinet.
• If the cabinet is very dirty, wipe with a soft cloth (cotton,
flannel, etc.) soaked in neutral detergent diluted with water
and thoroughly wrung out, and then wipe with a soft dry
cloth.
• The cabinet is primarily made of plastic. Avoid using
benzene, thinner, and other solvents, as these may deform
the cabinet and cause the paint to peel off.
• Do not apply insecticides or other volatile liquids.
• Also, do not allow the cabinet to remain in contact
with rubber or vinyl products for a long period of time.
Plasticizers inside the plastic may cause the cabinet to
deform and cause the paint to peel off.
• Turn off the main power and unplug
the AC cord from the wall outlet
before handling.
• Gently wipe the surface of the front
panel with a soft cloth (cotton,
flannel, etc.).
• To protect the front panel, do not
use a dirty cloth, liquid cleaners, or
a chemical cloth (wet/dry sheet type
cloth, etc.). This may damage the
surface of the front panel.
• Wiping with a hard cloth or using
strong force may scratch the surface
of the front panel.
• Use a soft damp cloth to gently wipe
the front panel when it is really dirty
(It may scratch the surface of the
front panel when wiped strongly).
• If the front panel is dusty, use
an anti-static brush, which is
commercially available, to clean it.
• 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.
• 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.

Introduction
• 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.
• 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.
• In case the product is dropped and
the cabinet is damaged, be sure to
turn off the power of the product,
and unplug the power cord. If you
continue to use the product, it may
cause fire or electric shock. Contact
your dealer.
• Do not open the rear cover of the
cabinet to reconstruct the circuits.
There exists high voltage within the
cabinet and it may cause electric
shock and injury. If maintenance is
required, contact your dealer.
• 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.
• Unplug the power cord before you
move the TV set. If not unplugged
beforehand, the power cord may
become damaged and cause
electric shock.
The LCD panel is a very high technology product with
2,073,600 pixels, 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, red or yellow.
This is within product specifications and does not constitute
a fault.
Precautions when transporting the TV
• When transporting the TV, never
carry it by holding or otherwise
putting pressure onto the display.
Be sure to always carry the TV by
two people holding it with two hands
— one hand on each side of the TV.
If a television is not positioned in a sufficiently stable location,
it can be potentially hazardous due to falling.
Many injuries, particularly to children, can be avoided by
taking simple precautions such as:
• Using cabinets or stands recommended by the
manufacturer of the television.
• Only using furniture that can safely support the television.
• Ensuring the television is not overhanging the edge of the
supporting furniture.
• Not placing the television on tall furniture (for example,
cupboards or bookcases) without anchoring both the
furniture and the television to a suitable support.
• Not standing the televisions on cloth or other materials
placed between the television and supporting furniture.
• Educating children about the dangers of climbing on
furniture to reach the television or its controls.
• 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.
NOTE
• The above are pictures for reference only; the actual item
might be different.

Video connections
Using a DVI/HDMI cable, the digital video signals of
a DVD can also be played via the compatible HDMI
connection. The sound must be fed in additionally.
HDMI connection
• When connecting a DVI/HDMI cable to the HDMI terminal, the
image may not come in clearly.
• Both HDMI and DVI use the same HDCP copy protection
method.
Example of connectable devices
E DVD player/recorder
E Blu-ray player/recorder
E Game console
E When using the HDMI 2 terminal
The HDMI connections permit digital video and audio
transmission via a connection cable from a player/
recorder. The digital picture and sound data are
transmitted without data compression and therefore lose
none of their quality. Analogue/digital conversion is no
longer necessary in the connected devices, which also
would result in quality losses.
You must set the audio signal input source depending
on the type of HDMI cable connected (refer to page 48 for
details).

Enjoying 3D image viewing
You can use special 3D glasses to watch 3D-supported images on this TV.
• You can enjoy 3D movies on this TV by viewing the movie through 3D glasses, sold separately.
• To produce 3D images, liquid crystal shutters in the 3D glasses alternately open and close imperceptibly fast to exactly match
alternating left and right video images displayed by the TV.
• Not all consumers can experience and enjoy 3D TV. Some people suffer from stereo blindness which prevents them from
perceiving the intended depth of 3D entertainment. Also, some people who watch 3D programming may experience initial feelings
of motion sickness as they adjust to the picture. Others may experience headaches, eye fatigue or continued motion sickness, or
some viewers might also experience epileptic seizures or strokes. Like a roller coaster, the experience is not for everyone.
CAUTION
• The 3D glasses are precision equipment. Handle them with care.
• Improper use of the 3D glasses or failure to follow these instructions can result in eye strain.
• If you experience dizziness, nausea, or other discomfort while viewing 3D images, immediately discontinue use of the 3D glasses.
Using the binocular disparity 3D system of this TV with incompatible 3D broadcasts or software can make images appear with a
cross talk blur or create overlapping images.
• When viewing 3D images continuously, be sure to take a break periodically to prevent eye strain.
• If you are nearsighted or farsighted or have astigmatism or a different level of eyesight between the left and right eyes, you should
take the necessary steps, such as wearing eyeglasses, to correct your eyesight before viewing 3D images. The 3D glasses can be
worn over eyeglasses.
• When viewing 3D images, keep the 3D glasses horizontally level with the TV screen. If you tilt the 3D glasses with respect to the TV
screen, the images viewed by the left and right eyes may appear significantly different or images may appear overlapping.
• View 3D images at the appropriate distance from the TV screen. The recommended distance is three times the effective height of
the TV screen. Viewing should not be done closer than the recommended distance.
• Be careful of your surroundings when viewing 3D images. When you view 3D images, objects may appear at a distance closer or
farther than the actual TV screen. This may cause you to misjudge the distance to the TV screen and possibly result in injury if you
accidentally hit the screen or surrounding objects.
• The 3D glasses are not recommended for people aged less than 6.
• When children are viewing 3D images, be sure a parent or guardian is present. Monitor children viewing 3D images, and if they
show signs of discomfort, immediately discontinue use of the 3D glasses.
• People with a known history of photosensitivity and people with heart problems or poor health should not use the 3D glasses. This
can worsen existing health conditions.
• Do not use the 3D glasses for other purposes (such as general eyeglasses, sunglasses, or protective goggles).
• Do not use the 3D function or 3D glasses while walking or moving around. This may result in injuries due to running into objects,
tripping, and/or falling.
• When using the 3D glasses, take care not to accidentally strike the TV screen or other people. Viewing 3D images may cause you
to misjudge the distance to the TV screen and accidentally strike the screen, resulting in possible injury.
• It is recommended that you do not view 3D images if you are sleep deprived or if you have been drinking alcohol.

The wall mount kit (sold separately) allows you to mount the TV on the wall.
For detailed information on installing the wall mount, see the instructions provided with the product. We recommend
you to contact a technician for assistance when installing it.
SHARP is not responsible for any damage to the product or injury to yourself or others if you elect to install the wall
mount on your own.
