Dear SHARP Customer
Thank you for your purchase of the SHARP LCD colour TV product. To ensure safety and many years of trouble-free
operation of your product, please read the Important Safety Precautions carefully before using this product.
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.
• 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 dropped or applied
with impact. Be careful not to be
injured by broken glass pieces in
case the LCD panel breaks.
• Heat sources—Keep the product
away from heat sources such as
radiators, heaters, stoves and
other heat-generating products
(including amplifiers).
• 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.
• 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.
The LCD panel is a very high technology product with
921,600 thin film transistors, giving you fine picture
details.
Due to the very large number of pixels, a few
non-active pixels may occasionally appear
on the screen as a fixed point of blue, green or red.
This is within product specifications and does not
constitute a fault.
Do not display a still picture for a long time, as this
could cause an afterimage to remain.

Preparation
Installing Batteries in the Remote Control
Before using the LCD TV set for the first time, install the two “AA” size batteries supplied in the remote control. When the
batteries become depleted and the remote control fails to operate, replace the batteries with new “AA” size batteries.
1
Open the battery cover.
2
Insert two “AA” size batteries.
3
Close the battery cover.
1
• Detach the cover
while pressing the
(") part.
• Place batteries with their
terminals corresponding
to the (+) and (–)
indications in the battery
compartment.
2
• Align the tab on the battery cover (1) and place
it while pressing the tab (2) to close it.
Caution!
Precautions regarding batteries
■ Improper use of batteries can result in a leakage of chemicals and/or explosion. Be sure to follow the instructions below.
• Place batteries with their terminals corresponding to the (+) and (–) indications.
• Different types of batteries have different characteristics. Do not mix batteries of different types.
• Do not mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new batteries and/or cause old
batteries to leak chemicals.
• Remove batteries as soon as they are depleted. Chemicals that leak from batteries can cause a rash. If chemical
leakage is found, wipe it off with a cloth.
• The batteries supplied with the LCD TV set may have a shorter operating time due to storage conditions.
• If the remote control is not to be used for an extended period of time, remove the batteries from the remote control.
Using the Remote Control
■ Use the remote control by pointing it towards the remote sensor
window of the main unit. Objects between the remote control and
sensor window may prevent proper operation.

Cautions regarding use of remote control
■ Do not apply shock to the remote control. In addition, do not
expose the remote control to liquids, and do not place it in an area
with high humidity.
■ Do not install or place the remote control under direct sunlight. The
heat may cause deformation of the unit.
■ The remote control may not work properly if the remote sensor
window is under direct sunlight or strong lighting. In such a case,
change the angle of the lighting or main unit, or operate the remote
control closer to the remote sensor window.

NOTE
• For the cable, use a commercially available audio/video cable.
• PC connection is not possible.
• For more information about external device connections, see the operation manuals of your external devices.
• Make sure that the corresponding cables are connected to each terminal. Connecting other cables may result in a malfunction.
• INPUT2 has two terminals, VIDEO and S-VIDEO terminals. If your external device has an S-VIDEO terminal, S-VIDEO connection is
recommended. S-VIDEO provides a finer, more detailed picture. If both terminals are connected, S-VIDEO terminal takes a priority.
• Only when 480I, 480P or 576I signal is received through the INPUT1, picture can be displayed.

■ 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.
