Television Antenna Connection Protection
External Television Antenna Grounding
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.
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 outer braid of the coaxial cable is intended to be connected to earth ground in the
building installation.
FCC Bulletin for New TV Owners
After February 17, 2009, a television receiver with only an analog broadcast tuner will require a
converter box to receive full power over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the
Nation's transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before to
receive low power, Class A or translator television stations and with cable and satellite TV
services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products.
Information about the DTV transition is available from http://www.DTV.gov or this manufacturer at
877 MY VIZIO (877-698-4946), and from http:/ /www.dtv2009.gov or 1-888-DTV-2009 for information
about subsidized coupons for digital-to-analog converter boxes.
Your VIZIO TV comes with a built-in tuner capable of processing digital broadcasts, making it
easier for you to receive this type of signal without the need of an extra converter box.

Installation Preparation
Please read this user manual carefully before installing your VIZIO FHDTV.
The power consumption of the TV is up to 600W, please use the power cord designated for TV. When an
extension cord is required, use one with the correct power rating. The cord must be grounded and the
grounding feature must not be defeated.
The TV should be installed on a flat surface to avoid tipping. For proper ventilation, you must allow space
between the back of the TV and the wall. If you would like to mount your TV on the wall, please see
below ‘Preparing Your PLASMA FHDTV for Wall Mounting’ for additional information. Avoid installing the
TV in places with high humidity, dust or smoke so as not to shorten the service life of the electronic
components.
Install the TV in landscape orientation; any 90˚ clockwise or counter-clockwise installation may induce
poor ventilation resulting in excessive heat and component damage.
The VIZIO VP505XVT1A can either be kept on the stand base or mounted on the wall for viewing. If you
choose to mount the VP505XVT1A on the wall, please refer to “preparing your PLASMA FHDTV for wall
mounting” on page 6.
VIZIO offers professional installation services. Please contact VIZIO for more information on these
services at 888-VIZIOCE (888-849-4623) or www.VIZIO.com.
Attaching the Safety Strap
When the VP505XVT1A is not mounted with a Wall Mount, a Safety Strap has been included to attach
the TV to the wall to reduce the chance of the TV being pulled over. The Safety Strap should be used
with common sense practice such as ensuring that children (or adults) do not climb up, grabbing the top
of the TV and pulling it onto themselves.
1.
Fix one end of the strap to the wall. If you have a drywall
finish it is preferable to fix it to a stud, using a washer
underneath the screw head. If you have a solid wall you
should use a lag bolt, again using a washer under the head.
2.
Fix the other end of the Safety
Strap to one of the upper wall
mount holes on the back of the
TV, using a washer under the
screw head.

Description
White
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) - It
is the first and only industry-supported,
uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface.
HDMI provides an interface between any
audio/video source, such as a set-top box, DVD
player, or A/V receiver and an audio and/or
video monitor, such as a digital television
(DTV), over a single cable.
Black
DTV Coaxial RF. When used for MPEG2
encoded bit streams from ATSC broadcast
programming, this input takes advantage of the
High Definition content.
------------------------------------TV Coaxial RF. This is the connection for
standard NTSC TV using antenna or cable.
Blue
RGB PC (VGA) – This video input has separate
red, green and blue color components and
separate horizontal and vertical sync signals.
This is most commonly used for PC input.
Green
Component - The video signal is separated into
three signals, one containing the black-andwhite information and the other two containing
the color information. This enhancement over SVideo takes advantage of the superior picture
provided by progressive scan DVD players and
FHDTV formats.
Composite - The complete video signal is
carried through this single pin connector. This is
the most commonly used video connection.
Good
(analog)

www.VIZIO.com
S-Video - The video signal is separated into two
signals, one containing the black-and-white
information and the other containing the color
information. Separating the color in this way
avoids ‘cross color’ effects where closely
spaced black and white lines are erroneously
displayed in color. It also enables text to be
displayed more sharply.

5.4 Understanding Viewing Features
Your FHDTV features the following viewing modes. You can switch viewing modes using the remote
control, please follow the instructions in page 39.
5.4.1 Viewing Modes
Standard Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3). This works
also with 16:9 enhanced DVD formats.
Full Screen Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen. When
watching a standard definition 4:3 source the picture will stretch
horizontally and fill the screen; people will look fatter than they are.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black bars
at the top and bottom.
Crop Mode
The crop mode allows cropping a 14:9 or 16:9 widescreen program or
movie from 4:3 broadcasting and rescaled it to a full screen on a 16:9
capable TV; this mode stretches the display vertically leaving a
reduced size of the black bars on top and bottom of the image. This
makes some formats of DVD viewable in a wide screen display.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.

quality issues.
For best image quality, view HD wide screen programs where possible. If HD
content is not available view “Standard Definition” from a digital source. Standard,
analog TV will always be noticeably inferior to HD because your digital flat panel TV
has video that is many times better than old TV’s and so you can see interference
and deficiencies you did not know you had.
You cannot see a picture.
Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a grounded electrical outlet.
Make sure that the power button is turned on.
Make sure that the selected input source is connected to a working input source.

You may be getting interference from electrical appliances, cars, motorcycles, or
fluorescent lights. If you have not mounted it on the wall, try moving your TV to
another location to see if this is the cause of the problem.
The picture has abnormal
patterns.
Make sure that the input source cable is attached securely and correctly to the back
of your TV.
Make sure that the video input source is within the range of your TV. Compare the
video input source’s specifications with your TV specifications.
The display image does not
cover the entire screen.
If you are using RGB mode, make sure that H Size and V Position in the On Screen
Display (OSD) are set correctly.
If you are using TV, AV-C (Composite), AV-S (S-Video) or Component with 480i
input, follow instructions in page 48 to obtain the desired screen mode.
You can see a picture but you
cannot hear sound.
Make sure that the volume is not turned down.
Make sure that the sound is not muted.
Make sure that your audio input source cables are connected securely and correctly.
The TV has pixels that are
always dark or colored.
Your PLASMA FHDTV is manufactured using an extremely high level of precision
technology, however, sometimes some pixels of your PLASMA FHDTV may not
display. Pixel defects within industry specifications are inherent to this type of
product and do not constitute a defective product.
You see “noise” or “trash” on
the screen.
When your PLASMA FHDTV’s digital capabilities exceed a digital broadcast signal,
the signal is up-converted (increased) to match your TV’s display capabilities. Upconverting can cause noise or trash.
You switch to a different input
and the volume changes.
The TV remembers the volume level from the last time you adjusted it. If the sound
level is higher or lower from another source, then the loudness will change.
You switch to a different input
and the screen size changes.
The TV remembers the viewing mode from the last time you used a particular input
(AV (S-Video), AV (Composite), Component, HDMI and TV).
Tips for High-Definition Users.
The PLASMA FHDTV is an ideal platform for viewing High Definition Content.
Best Image Quality will be achieved by the HDMI Input, then YPbPr, then RGB.

Tips for Letterbox Content
Users.
Letterboxed (or “Widescreen”) versions of DVD movies are most commonly
formatted for standard 4:3 Televisions. The PLASMA FHDTV has the capability of
expanding this content so the entire screen is filled at the expense of image
accuracy. Follow the instructions in page 38.

8.2 Glossary – Standard Definitions
Analog TV: Today’s TV system using radio frequency waves to transmit and display pictures and sound.
Aspect Ratio (4x3): Traditional TV “aspect ratio”, that is, the screen’s width as compared to its height.
For example, a “32 inch TV screen” would be 25 inches wide and 19 inches tall.
Aspect Ratio (16x9): “Wide screen TV” aspect ratio which is more like a movie screen than a traditional
TV. For example, a “32 inch TV screen” would be 28 inches wide and 16 inches tall.
Digital TV (DTV): Television delivered and displayed using radio frequency waves that contain
information that is digitally encoded for improved quality and efficiency.
Enhanced Definition TV (EDTV): A better digital television transmission than SDTV with at least 480P,
in a 16x9 or 4x3 display and Dolby digital surround sound. 480P is the quality used by most DVD players.
EDTV provides 300-400,000 pixels.
HDTV Monitor (sometimes called HDTV Ready): A set that can display HDTV programming if you have
a separate HDTV tuner, HD Cable Set-Top Box or HD Satellite Set-Top-Box Receiver.
HDTV Tuner (also decoder, receiver, set-top box): A device capable of receiving and outputting HDTV
signals for display. It may be stand-alone or integrated in the set.
High-Definition Television (HDTV): The best quality picture, wide screen (16x9) display with at least
720 progressively scanned lines (720P) or 1080 interlaced lines (1080i) and Dolby digital surround sound.
HDTV provides 900,000-2.1 million pixels.
Integrated HDTV: An HDTV that has the digital tuner built into the set. It does not need a separate settop box to receive over-the-air DTV signals.
Interlace Scan: A way to scan vertical lines onto a TV picture by scanning all the odd lines first, then
filling the in the even lines (this happens instantaneously).
Plug-and-Play or Digital Cable Ready: A DTV or other device for digital cable consumers that plugs
directly into the cable jack and does not require a separate set-top box. Plug-and-Play TV owners must
obtain a CableCARD from their cable company in order to view scrambled programming services.
Progressive Scan: A way to scan vertical lines onto a TV picture by scanning all the lines consecutively
(progressively).
Standard Definition TV (SDTV): Basic digital television transmission that may be displayed with fewer
than 480 progressively scanned lines (480P) in 16 x 9 or 4 x 3 format. 480 interlaced (480i) is the quality
of today’s analog TV system.
Source: Buying a Digital Television, CEA, FHDTV Guide, 2005
Note: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)
and the Consumer Electronics Retailers Coalition (CERC) have made a new tip sheet available for digital
television (DTV) retailers to reproduce and distribute to consumers on the sales floor. The file may be
downloaded online at www.dtv.gov. While you’re there, check out the other useful information in the FCC
is making available to consumers interested in learning more about the analog to digital transition.

VIZIO Limited Product Warranty
VIZIO provides a “ONE-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY” against manufacturing defects in materials and
workmanship to the original purchaser of a new VIZIO display purchased from an authorized VIZIO U.S.
reseller and used in the fifty (50) United States or Puerto Rico.
VIZIO’s Responsibility
VIZIO displays purchased new from an authorized VIZIO U.S. reseller and that are used in the fifty (50)
United States or Puerto Rico are warranted to be free from manufacturing defects in materials and
workmanship for one (1) year from the date of the original retail purchase. If the display fails to conform to
this limited warranty, VIZIO will, at its option and sole discretion, repair or replace the display.
Labor
During the one-year limited warranty period, VIZIO will provide, when needed, service labor to repair a
manufacturing defect. Repairs required on displays which are thirty (30) inches and larger generally will
be made “on-site” where the display is installed. The determination for performing the on-site repair is
dependent upon the manufacturing defect and is at VIZIO’s option and sole discretion. Repairs required
on displays which are less than thirty (30) inches generally will be performed at a VIZIO service center.
Parts
Repairs may be made with new or recertified parts, or the entire unit may be replaced with a new or
recertified unit, at VIZIO’s option and sole discretion. Replacement parts or replacement units provided
under this limited warranty are warranted for the remaining portion of the original warranty period, or for
ninety (90) days from warranty service or replacement, whichever is later.
How to Obtain Warranty Service
To obtain warranty service, contact VIZIO Technical Support via email at TechSupport@VIZIO.com, via
phone at 877-MYVIZIO (877-698-4946), or via postal mail at VIZIO Technical Support, 39 Tesla, Irvine,
CA 92618. You must provide the model, serial number, and date of purchase. VIZIO Technical Support is
available from 6:00AM to 9:00PM Pacific Time, Monday through Friday, and 8:00AM to 4:00PM Pacific
Time, Saturday and Sunday. Please note that holiday hours may vary. For up to date information, please
visit www.VIZIO.com.
VIZIO reserves the right to assess all warranty claims and to determine if defects or damages are covered
by this limited warranty. In case of a claim that is not covered by this warranty, you will be contacted to
determine whether VIZIO should repair the damage for a fee or whether the product should be returned to
you as received by the service technician or service center.
Parts and service labor that are VIZIO’s responsibility under this limited warranty will be provided without
charge. All other service is at the customer’s expense. VIZIO reserves the right to charge the customer for
any service call for anything not covered by this limited warranty. Before you ask for warranty service,
please review your User Manual. You may avoid a service call and a service charge.
Please refer to the reverse side of this page for additional information regarding how to obtain warranty
service.

What Is Not Covered
This limited warranty does not cover the following: cosmetic defects; damage, malfunctions or failures
resulting from shipping or transit, improper or faulty installation, abuse, operation contrary to furnished
instructions, operation on incorrect power supplies, products not supplied by VIZIO, modification,
alteration, improper servicing or tampering; damage from fire, water, lightning, power surges, abnormal
environmental conditions or other acts of nature; normal wear and tear; unsatisfactory visual or audio
performance not caused by a manufacturing defect; or displays with a missing or unreadable serial
number. Operation of the display for commercial purposes or in applications or uses for which the display
is not intended is not covered by this limited warranty. “Image Sticking”, caused by static images on the
screen for extended periods and or excessive brightness and contrast levels, is not covered by this
limited warranty. Installation, removal, transportation and reinstallation of a display, and routine
maintenance and cleaning, are not covered by this limited warranty.
THERE ARE NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES OTHER THAN THOSE LISTED OR DESCRIBED ABOVE.
ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, SHALL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE PERIOD OF
TIME SET FORTH ABOVE. VIZIO’S TOTAL LIABILITY FOR ANY AND ALL LOSSES AND DAMAGES
RESULTING FROM ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING VIZIO’S NEGLIGENCE, ALLEGED
DAMAGE, OR DEFECTIVE GOODS, WHETHER SUCH DEFECTS ARE DISCOVERABLE OR LATENT,
SHALL IN NO EVENT EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE DISPLAY. VIZIO SHALL NOT BE
RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSS OF USE, COMMERCIAL LOSS, LOST REVENUE OR LOST PROFITS, OR
OTHER INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW
LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS OR THE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR
EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to
state. This is the only warranty applicable; no one is authorized to extend or modify it or to grant any other
warranty on VIZIO’s behalf.
Owner’s Responsibility
To ensure warranty service, keep the dated bill or sales receipt as evidence of the purchase date and
location. This limited warranty applies only to original purchaser and is non-transferable.

VIZIO’s return policy allows for products purchased directly from VIZIO to be returned by the original purchaser during the initial
thirty (30) day period following the date of purchase. A VIZIO return authorization number must first be obtained as provided
below. The refund will be the purchase price actually paid by the purchaser less a ten percent (10%) restocking fee per each
item returned. Shipping and handling are not refundable.
The return authorization number must first be obtained from VIZIO’s Customer Service by emailing
CustomerSupport@VIZIO.com or by calling 949-428-2525, 6:00AM to 9:00PM Pacific Time, Monday through Friday, and

Products must be returned to the address specified by VIZIO Customer Service and must be shipped in the original packaging,

included in the packaging. VIZIO reserves the right to assess fees for any damaged or missing parts in addition to the ten
percent (10%) restocking fee.
Return authorization numbers are valid for only fifteen (15) days from issuance. The customer is responsible for and must prepay
all shipping charges and shall assume all risk of loss or damage to the product while in transit to VIZIO. If the product is returned
to VIZIO (i) without a VIZIO return authorization number, and/or (ii) beyond the fifteen (15) day period, and/or (iii) without proper
packaging, VIZIO retains the right to refuse delivery of such return or may return the unit to the customer at the customer’s
expense and with no refund issued. This return policy does not apply to defective products. Please read VIZIO’s Limited Product
Warranty for warranty terms and conditions.
ON-SITE WARRANTY
REPAIR PROCEDURE
On-Site Warranty Repair generally is performed on repairable displays which are 30 inches
and larger.
If VIZIO Technical Support determines that a problem with a display unit may be within the terms and conditions of the VIZIO
Limited Product Warranty and that an on-site repair may be performed, the customer will be provided with an on-site repair
authorization number and on-site repair instructions. The determination for performing the on-site repair may be dependent upon
the manufacturing defect and is at VIZIO’s option and sole discretion. Proof of purchase is required to confirm the product is
within the one-year limited warranty period and meets the terms and conditions of the VIZIO Limited Product Warranty.
On-site repair service is requested through VIZIO’s third-party service provider. After VIZIO provides the customer with the onsite repair (OSR) authorization number, the third-party service provider will contact the customer and will schedule the repair at
the customer's location. The total approximate time for the repair process, which includes the repair diagnosis, dispatching the
technician, shipping the replacement part(s), and arranging the appointment with the customer, is completed within
approximately 3 to 5 business days, pending availability of these factors.
If it is determined the product can not be repaired on-site, the customer will be required to ship the unit to VIZIO’s service center,
per the below warranty replacement procedure.
VIZIO is not responsible for the de-installation or re-installation of the product. However, some standard installation may be
performed during the on-site repair, at VIZIO’s option and sole discretion. Please read VIZIO’s Limited Product Warranty for
warranty terms and conditions.
WARRANTY REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE
Warranty Replacement generally is performed on displays which are determined to be
economically unrepairable.
If VIZIO Technical Support determines that a problem with a display unit may be within the terms and conditions of the VIZIO
Limited Product Warranty and that a repair is not economically possible, based on certain manufacturing defects in materials
and/or workmanship, and/or at VIZIO’s option and sole discretion, the customer will be provided with a return authorization
number and replacement instructions. Proof of purchase is required to confirm the product is within the one-year limited warranty
period and meets the terms and conditions of the VIZIO Limited Product Warranty.
Version 8/21/2008

transportation charges to VIZIO’s service center. VIZIO will be responsible for the return transportation charges from the service
center to the customer. Please read VIZIO’s Limited Product Warranty for warranty terms and conditions.
MAIL-IN WARRANTY REPAIR PROCEDURE
Mail-In Warranty Repair generally is performed on displays which are smaller than 30 inches.
If VIZIO Technical Support determines that a problem with a display unit may be within the terms and conditions of the VIZIO
Limited Product Warranty and that a mail-in repair may be performed, the customer will be provided with a return authorization
number and mail-in repair instructions. Proof of purchase is required to confirm the product is within the one-year limited
warranty period and meets the terms and conditions of the VIZIO Limited Product Warranty.
The customer will be provided with instructions for packing and shipping the unit to the VIZIO service center. The original carton
box and packing material, or an equivalent as designated by VIZIO, must be utilized. The cost of shipping to VIZIO’s service
center is at the customer's expense. After the product is repaired and tested, the VIZIO service center will ship the unit back to
the customer at VIZIO’s expense. VIZIO is not responsible for the de-installation or re-installation of the product. Please read
