Child Safety
It Makes A Difference
Where Your TV Stands
Congratulations on your purchase! As you enjoy
your new TV, keep these safety tips in mind:
The Issue
a If you are like most consumers, you have a TV in your
home. Many homes, in fact, have more than one TV.
a The home theater entertainment experience is a growing
trend, and larger TVs are popular purchases; however,
they are not always supported on the proper TV stands.
a Sometimes TVs are improperly secured or inappropriately
situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks, audio
speakers, chests, or carts. As a result, TVs may fall over,
causing unnecessary injury.
Toshiba Cares!
a The consumer electronics
industry is committed to
making home entertainment
enjoyable and safe.
a The Consumer Electronics
Association formed the
Home Entertainment
Support Safety Committee,
comprised of TV and
consumer electronics
furniture manufacturers, to
advocate children’s safety and
educate consumers and their
families about television safety.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is
intended to alert the user to the presence of important
operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in
the literature accompanying the appliance.
WARNING
To prevent injury, this apparatus must be securely attached to
the floor/wall in accordance with the installation instructions.
See item 20 on page 3.
WARNING: If you decide to wall mount this television,
always use a UL Listed wall bracket appropriate for the size
and weight of this television. The use of any wall bracket
other than a UL Listed wall bracket appropriate for the size
and weight of this television for wall mounting this television
could result in serious bodily injury and/or property damage.
See “Removing the Pedestal Stand” (- page 5).
Tune Into Safety
a
a
a
a
a
a
a One size does NOT fit all! Use appropriate
furniture large enough to support the weight of your TV
(and other electronic components).
Use appropriate angle braces, straps, and anchors to
secure your furniture to the wall (but never screw
anything directly into the TV).
Carefully read and understand the other enclosed
instructions for proper use of this product.
Do not allow children to climb on or play with furniture
and TVs.
Avoid placing any item on top of your TV (such as a VCR,
remote control, or toy) that a curious child may reach for.
Remember that children can become excited while watching
a program and can potentially push or pull a TV over.

the pedestal stand to avoid damage to the LCD panel.
2) Place the TV on a sturdy, level surface that can support the
weight of the TV.
3) Be sure to secure the TV to a wall, pillar, surface, or other
immovable structure. To secure the TV in this manner, use the
included strap located at the rear of the pedestal stand. (- item
20, page 3).
To Display your LCD TV using a Wall Bracket:

LCD TV (- page 2) :
1) CAUTION: Two people are required for installation.
2) Unplug and remove any cables and/or other component
connectors from the rear of the TV.
3) Follow the instructions provided with your wall bracket.
Before proceeding, make sure the appropriate bracket(s) are
attached to the wall and the back of the TV as described in the
instructions provided with the wall bracket.
4) After attaching the appropriate bracket(s) to the wall and the
back of the TV, remove the pedestal stand from the TV as
described below.
The following symptoms are technical limitations of LCD
Display technology and are not an indication of malfunction;
therefore, Toshiba is not responsible for perceived issues
resulting from these symptoms.
1) An afterimage (ghost) may appear on the screen if a fixed, nonmoving image is displayed for a long period of time. The
afterimage is not permanent and will disappear in a short period
of time.
2) The LCD panel contained in this TV is manufactured using an
extremely high level of precision technology; however, there
may be an occasional pixel (dot of light) that does not operate
properly (does not light, remains constantly lit, etc.). This is a
structural property of LCD technology, is not a sign of
malfunction, and is not covered under your warranty. Such
pixels are not visible when the picture is viewed from a normal
viewing distance.

type of joystick at an on-screen target may not work with this
TV.

Chapter 2: Connecting your TV
Overview of cable types
Cables can be purchased from most stores that sell audio/video
devices. Before purchasing any cables, be sure of connector
types required by your devices and the length of each cable.
Coaxial (F-type) cable
Coaxial (F-type) cable is used for connecting your antenna,
cable TV service, and/or cable converter box to the ANT input
on your TV.
HDMI™ cable
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) cable is for use
with devices with an HDMI output. An HDMI cable delivers
digital audio and video in its native format. This cable carries
both video and audio information; therefore, separate audio
cables are not required for a complete HDMI device
connection (- page 15).
Note: HDMI cable provides better picture performance than a
standard (composite) video or S-video cable.
Analog RGB (15-pin) computer cable
Standard A/V cables (red/white/yellow)
Analog RGB (15-pin) computer cable is for connecting a PC to
the TV’s PC IN terminal (- page 16).
Standard A/V cables (composite video) usually come in sets of
three, and are for use with video devices with analog audio and
composite video output. These cables (and the related inputs
on your TV) are typically color-coded according to use: yellow
for video, red for stereo right audio, and white for stereo left
(or mono) audio.
S-video cable
S-video cable is for use with video devices with S-video
output. Separate audio cables are required for a complete
connection.
Note: An S-video cable provides better picture performance
than a composite video cable. If you connect an S-video cable,
be sure to disconnect the standard (composite) video cable or
the picture performance will be unacceptable.
About the connection illustrations
You can connect different types and brands of devices to your
TV in several different configurations. The connection
illustrations in this manual are representative of typical device
connections only. The input/output terminals on your devices
may differ from those illustrated herein. For details on
connecting and using your specific devices, refer to each
device’s owner’s manual.
Connecting an antenna or cable TV
This connection allows you to watch TV programs or basic
cable channels.
From antenna or cable
TV lower back panel
Component video cables (red/green/blue)
Component video cables come in sets of three and are for use
with video devices with component video output.
(ColorStream® is Toshiba’s brand of component video.) These
cables are typically color-coded red, green, and blue. Separate
audio cables are required for a complete connection.
Note: Component video cables provide better picture
performance than a standard (composite) video or S-video
cable.

Chapter 3: Using the remote control
Programming the remote control
to operate your other devices
Your Toshiba TV remote control is preprogrammed to operate
most Toshiba devices. To program your TV remote control to
operate a non-Toshiba device (or a Toshiba device that it is not
preprogrammed to operate), follow the steps below. For details
on using the remote control to operate the device, see page 19.
1
In the remote control code table (- page 22), find the
code for your device. If more than one code is listed, try
each one separately until you find one that works.
2
Set the MODE SELECT Switch to the type of device you
are programming the remote control to operate —
CABLE/SAT (for a cable converter box or satellite
receiver), DVD (for a DVD player or HTIB [home theater
in a box]), or VCR (for a VCR or TV/VCR combo).
3
While holding down E, press the Channel Number
buttons to enter the 3-digit code for your device.
4
To test the code, turn on the device, point the remote
control at it, and press p. (Also see notes below.)
• If the correct code was entered, the device will turn off.
• If the device does not respond, repeat steps 1–4 using
another code.
• If the device does not respond to another code, you will
need to use the device’s original remote control.
5
Remember to set the MODE SELECT Switch back to
“TV” to control the TV.
6
For future reference, write down the code(s) you used:
DEVICE
CODE
DEVICE
CODE
Note:
• In addition to POWER, confirm that all necessary keys on the
TV remote control operate your device. If some keys are not
operational, repeat the device code setup using another
code (if other codes are listed for your device). If, after trying
all listed codes, the necessary keys do not operate your
device, use the device’s original remote control.
• Every time you change the batteries, you will need to
reprogram the remote control.
• Some newer VCRs respond to either of two codes. These
VCRs have a switch labeled “VCR1/VCR2.” If your VCR has
this kind of switch and does not respond to the codes for
your VCR brand, set the switch to the other position (“VCR1”
or “VCR2”) and reprogram the remote control.

Chapter 3: Using the remote control
Remote control codes
In some cases you may not be able to
operate your device with the TV
remote control. Your other device may
use a code that is not recognized by the
TV remote control. If this happens, use
the device’s remote control.

Your TV can automatically detect all active channels in your
area and store them in its memory. After the channels are
programmed automatically, you can manually add or erase
individual channels in the channel memory.
Note:
• If the input signal type is set to CABLE for an antenna input,
the automatic channel programming process erases
channels that were previously programmed into the TV’s
memory.
• If the input signal type is set to TV, the automatic channel
programming process does NOT erase channels that were
previously programmed into the TV’s memory, but adds
newly found channels to the existing set of programmed
channels. To remove a channel from the memory, you must
manually delete it.
• To tune the TV to a channel not programmed in the channel
memory, you must use the Channel Number buttons on the
remote control.
• Programming channels for an antenna input configured for
CABLE will take substantially longer than for an antenna
input configured for TV. This is normal; however, once
channel programming is completed, you should not have to
repeat the programming process again unless your Cable
TV service lineup changes significantly.

broadcast another language as a second audio program. If
you have SAP on, you will see the current program on the
screen but hear the other language instead of the program’s
normal audio.
• If you have SAP on and the station you are watching is not
broadcasting a second audio program, the station’s normal
audio will be output. However, occasionally there is no
sound at all in SAP mode. If this happens, set the MTS
feature to Stereo mode.

Chapter 7: Troubleshooting
General troubleshooting
Before calling a service technician, please check this section
for a possible cause of the problem and some solutions you can
try.
Black box on screen
• The Closed Caption feature is set to one of the Text
modes (T1, T2, T3, or T4). Set the Closed Caption
feature to Off (- page 37).
TV will not turn on
• Make sure the power cord is plugged in, and then press
p.
• The remote control batteries may be dead. Replace the
batteries or try the control panel buttons.
Picture problems
General picture problems
• Check the antenna/cable connections (- page 10).
• Press + on the remote control or INPUT on the TV
control panel and select a valid video input source
(- page 30). If no device is connected, no picture will
display when you select that particular input source. For
device connection details, see page 10.
• Antenna reception may be poor. Use a highly directional
outdoor antenna (if applicable).
• The station may have broadcast difficulties. Try another
channel.
• Adjust the picture qualities (- page 35).
• If you are using a VCR, make sure L on the remote
control is set correctly (- page 19).
• Do not connect both a standard video cable and an
S-video cable to the VIDEO-2 inputs at the same time
(- page 12).
Noisy picture
• If you are watching a tuned analog channel (off-air
broadcast or Cable TV), set the CableClear®/DNR
feature to Auto to reduce visible interference in the TV
picture (- page 36).
Video Input Selection problems
• If the program list does not appear when you press + on
the remote control or INPUT on the TV control panel,
press the button a second time, which will change the TV
to the next video input source and display the program
list.
Cannot view external signals or channel 3 or 4
• If you cannot view signals from external devices
connected to VIDEO-1, VIDEO-2, ColorStream®,
HDMI1, HDMI2, PC or from channels 3 or 4, make sure
the Video Lock is set to Off (- page 41).
Poor color or no color
• The station may have broadcast difficulties. Try another
channel.
• Adjust the Tint and/or Color (- page 35).
Poor composite or S-video picture
• If the poor picture occurs when the TV is connected to an
external A/V device (e.g., DVD player, video game
system, set-top box, etc.) try using a ColorStream or
HDMI video connection instead.
Picture and sound are out of sync
• As with all products that contain a digital display, in rare
instances, when viewing certain content (e.g.. television
broadcasts, video games, DVDs), you may notice that the
sound and picture are slightly out of sync. This
phenomenon can be caused by various factors including,
without limitation, video processing within the TV, video
processing in an attached gaming system, and video
processing or different compression rates used by
broadcasters in their programming. You may want to try
one or more of the following suggestions, which may
help to reduce the effect of this phenomenon:
– If the TV is connected to an A/V receiver that has a
programmable audio delay feature, use this feature
to help synchronize the sound to the picture.
– If you notice this phenomenon only on certain TV
channels, please contact your local broadcast,
cable, or satellite provider to inform them of this
issue.
Sound problems
• Check the antenna/cable connections (- page 10).
• The station may have broadcast difficulties. Try another
channel.
• The sound may be muted. Press VOLUME.
• If you hear no sound, try setting the MTS feature to
Stereo mode (- page 38).
• If you are not receiving a second audio program from a
known SAP source, make sure the MTS feature is set to
SAP mode (- page 38).
• If you hear audio that seems “incorrect” for the program
you are watching (such as music or a foreign language),
the SAP mode may be on. Set the MTS feature to Stereo
mode (- page 38).

Remote control problems
• Make sure the remote control is set to the correct device
mode (- page 19).
• Remove all obstructions between the remote control and
the TV.
• The remote control batteries may be dead. Replace the
batteries (- page 17).
• The TV remote control may not operate certain features
on your external device. Refer to the owner’s manual for
your other device to determine its available features. If
the TV remote control does not operate a specific feature
on the device, use the remote control provided with the
device (- pages 19–23).
Channel tuning problems
• Make sure the remote control is set to the correct device
mode (- page 18).
• The channel may have been erased from the channel
memory by the Add/Erase feature. Add the channel to
the channel memory (- page 27).
• The channel may be blocked by the Channel Lock
feature. Unblock the channel (- page 41).
Closed caption problems
• If the program or video you selected is not closedcaptioned, no captions will display on-screen
(- page 37).
• If text is not available, a black rectangle may appear onscreen. If this happens, turn off the closed caption feature
(- page 37).
• A closed caption signal may not display correctly in the
following situations: a) when a videotape has been
dubbed; b) when the signal reception is weak; or c) when
the signal reception is nonstandard (- page 37).

Disclaimer and Limitation of Remedy
TO THE EXTENT NOT PRECLUDED BY LAW, ALL OTHER EXPRESS
AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS AND REPRESENTATIONS
FOR THIS TELEVISION, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES,
CONDITIONS AND REPRESENTATIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE HEREBY DISCLAIMED
AND EXCLUDED. IF THE APPLICABLE LAW, STATUTORY OR
OTHERWISE, PRECLUDES THE EXCLUSION OF ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS AND REPRESENTATIONS THEN SUCH
IMPLIED WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS AND REPRESENTATIONS ARE
OTHERWISE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE TERM OF THIS
EXPRESS WRITTEN LIMITED WARRANTY. TO THE EXTENT NOT
PRECLUDED BY LAW, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, THIS WRITTEN
WARRANTY SUPERCEDES AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY
OTHER WARRANTY, CONDITION OR REPRESENTATION NOT
STATED IN THIS WARRANTY, WHETHER MADE BY TCL, TOSHIBA
CORPORATION, THEIR AFFILIATES, ADRs AND ASPs AND WHETHER
MADE ORALLY OR IN WRITING (INCLUDING ANY STATEMENT IN
ANY BROCHURE, PRESS RELEASE, ANNOUNCEMENT,
ADVERTISEMENT, POINT OF SALE DISPLAY, ETC.).
YOU MUST READ AND FOLLOW ALL SET-UP AND USAGE
INSTRUCTIONS IN THE APPLICABLE USER GUIDES AND/OR
MANUALS. IF YOU FAIL TO DO SO, THIS TELEVISION MAY NOT
FUNCTION PROPERLY AND YOU MAY SUFFER DAMAGE. THIS
WARRANTY WILL NOT COVER ANY SERVICE THAT IS REQUIRED, IN
PART OR IN WHOLE, AS A RESULT OF ANY FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE
SET-UP AND USAGE INSTRUCTIONS. THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT
APPLY AND SHALL BE VOID AND UNENFORCEABLE IF THE

OTHER THAN THOSE AUTHORIZED BY TCL TO SERVICE OR REPAIR
THE TELEVISION.

SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY SHALL BE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT
OF THE DEFECTIVE PART. IN NO EVENT WILL TCL, TOSHIBA
CORPORATION, THEIR AFFILIATES, ADRs OR ASPs (THE “RELATED
PARTIES”) BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY
DAMAGES, MONEY, REIMBURSEMENT, COSTS OR EXPENSES. THIS
LIMITATION APPLIES TO DAMAGES, MONEY, REIMBURSEMENT,
COSTS OR EXPENSES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER INCLUDING ANY
DIRECT OR INDIRECT DAMAGES, DAMAGE TO PROPERTY OR
PERSON, LOST PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS, INCONVENIENCE OR
OTHER SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY, BREACH OF
CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), UNDER A STATUTE OR
UNDER ANY OTHER LAW OR FORM OR ACTION, OR WHETHER
ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE TELEVISION,
EVEN IF ANY OF THE RELATED PARTIES HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR OF ANY CLAIM BY ANY OTHER
PARTY.
No person, agent, distributor, dealer or company is authorized to change,
modify or extend the terms of these warranties in any manner whatsoever.
Arbitration and Dispute Resolution
To the extent not precluded by law, any claim, dispute, controversy or
disagreement (whether for breach of warranty, breach of contract, tort
(including negligence), under a statute or under any other law or form of
action) against any of the Related Parties arising out of, or otherwise
relating to: (i) this warranty; (ii) the Television; (iii) any oral or written
representations, statements, brochures, press releases, advertising,
announcement, point of sale display, or promotional material relating to
the Television; (iv) the relationships that result from this warranty, (the
foregoing claims, disputes controversies and disagreements are
collectively referred to as the “Dispute”), shall be referred to and resolved
by final and binding arbitration (to the exclusion of the courts). To the
extent not precluded by law, you agree to waive any right that you may
have to commence or participate in any representative or class
proceeding against the Related Parties relating to any Dispute. If and
where applicable and to the extent not precluded by law, you further
agree to opt out of any such representative or class proceedings.
Arbitration of any Dispute will be conducted in the forum and in the
manner as agreed to between you and TCL. Failing such agreement, the
arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator pursuant to the laws and
rules relating to arbitration generally in force in the jurisdiction in which you
reside at the time that the Dispute arises. To the extent not precluded by
law, no claim, dispute, controversy or disagreement of any other person
may be joined or combined with any Dispute by you, without the prior
written consent of TCL.
Critical Applications
The Television you have purchased is not designed for any “critical
applications.” “Critical applications” means life support systems, medical
applications, connections to implanted medical devices, commercial
transportation, nuclear facilities or systems or any other applications
where Television failure could lead to injury to persons or loss of life or
catastrophic property damage.
IF THE CUSTOMER USES THE TELEVISION IN ANY CRITICAL
APPLICATION, THE CUSTOMER - AND NOT TCL, ITS AFFILIATES, ADRs
OR ASPs - ASSUME SOLE AND FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR SUCH USE.
TCL RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO SERVICE ANY TELEVISION
USED IN A CRITICAL APPLICATION. TCL, ITS AFFILIATES, ADRs AND
ASPs HEREBY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY, DAMAGES AND
CONSEQUENCES ARISING OUT OF THE SERVICE OR REFUSAL TO
SERVICE SUCH TELEVISION AND FURTHER DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL
LIABILITY, CONSEQUENCES AND DAMAGES THAT MAY ARISE OR
RESULT FROM THE USE OF THE TELEVISION IN ANY CRITICAL
APPLICATIONS.
General Provisions

generally be found to be unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall
be severed from the warranty and deemed not to form part of the warranty.
The remaining provisions of this warranty shall be and remain valid and
enforceable. If and to the extent that any provision of this limited warranty
as it relates to any of the Related Parties is found to be invalid or
unenforceable in respect of that party (the “Excluded Party”), the
Excluded Party shall be deemed to be severed or excluded from the
provision, and the provision shall remain valid, enforceable and
applicable in respect of the other or remaining Related Parties.
To the extent permitted by law, this limited warranty shall be governed and
construed in accordance with the laws of Ontario.
If there is any inconsistency between this limited warranty, on the one
hand, and any statement in the packaging of the Television or in any other
document enclosed with, or used in the context of the promotion or sale
of, the Television, on the other hand, the provisions of this limited warranty
shall prevail.
