Dear SHARP Customer
Thank you for your purchase of a SHARP LCD product. To ensure safety and many
years of trouble-free operation of your product, please read the Safety Precautions
carefully before using this product.
Safety Precautions
Electricity is used to perform many useful functions, but it can also cause personal injuries and property
damage if improperly handled. This product has been engineered and manufactured with the highest
priority on safety. However, improper use can result in electric shock and/or fire. In order to prevent
potential danger, please observe the following instructions when installing, operating and cleaning the
product. To ensure your safety and prolong the service life of your LCD product, please read the following precautions carefully before using the product.
1. Read instructions—All operating instructions must be read and understood before the product is
operated.
2. Keep this manual in a safe place—These safety and operating instructions must be kept in a safe
place for future reference.
3. Observe warnings—All warnings on the product and in the instructions must be observed closely.
4. Follow instructions—All operating instructions must be followed.
5. Cleaning—Unplug the power 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.
6. Attachments—Do not use attachments not recommended by the manufacturer. Use of inadequate
attachments can result in accidents.
7. Water and moisture—Do not use the product near water, such as bathtub, washbasin, kitchen
sink and laundry tub, swimming pool and in a wet basement.
8. Stand—Do not place the product on an unstable cart, stand, tripod or table. Placing the product
on an unstable base 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.
9. 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.
10. 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. 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.
11. Power cord protection—The power cords must be routed properly to prevent people from stepping on them or objects from resting on them.
12. 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.
13. Overloading—Do not overload AC outlets or extension cords. Overloading can cause fire or
electric shock.
14. Entering of objects and liquids—Never insert an object into the product through vents or openings. High voltage flows in the product, and inserting an object can cause electric shock and/or
short internal parts. For the same reason, do not spill water or liquid on the product.
15. Servicing—Do not attempt to service the product yourself. Removing covers can expose you to
high voltage and other dangerous conditions. Request a qualified service person to perform
servicing.

Adjustments to the On-Screen Display
Note
• The screen size is slightly different when receiving 1080i signals and other type of signals.
• When the AUTO setting is “ON”, the picture may become larger and smaller, but this is only because the AUTO
setting is automatically selecting the most appropriate image for the incoming video signal and does not indicate a
malfunction. If it is disturbing, please set the AUTO setting to “OFF” and select the appropriate picture size.
• Depending on the picture you are watching the time it takes for the selection to take place may differ.
• For wide picture signals (cinema size, etc.), black bands at the top and bottom of the screen may remain.
• When watching special playback functions (video search, slow playback, etc.) on the VCR, the AUTO setting may
stop operating.
• This unit is equipped with functions, which select appropriate picture mode for all types. Note that if a size mode is
selected that differs from the video display ratio of the software, the view will be different from the original picture.
• When watching a 4:3 format (SIDE BAR) picture adjusted to a full size using the VIEW mode, the peripheral picture
may be invisible or partly deformed. In order to watch the original picture as intended by the copyright holder; please
watch using the SIDE BAR mode.
• Depending on the signal received or the movie software, correct operation cannot be obtained with the AUTO setting.
In this case, after setting the AUTO setting of the VIEW mode to “OFF”, select the appropriate picture size.
• When displaying with the CINEMA mode during the PC mode, the picture will be shown with the top and bottom of
the parts cut off.
• When displaying a wide movie from the DVD with the PC mode, use the CINEMA mode.
• Depending on the type of commercial software, parts of subtitles, etc. may disappear. In this case, please select an
appropriate picture mode using the VIEW mode and adjust the vertical position using position adjustment. Noise and
bending of the picture may occur at the top or the edges of the picture but this does not indicate a malfunction.
• Depending on the picture displayed, the display position may not change even though the value of the adjustment
changes.
