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.

5.
Attachments—Do not use attachments not recommended by the manufacturer. Use of inadequate attachments
can result in accidents.
6.
Power source—This product must operate on a power source specified on the specification label. If you are
not sure of the type of power supply used in your home, consult your dealer or local power company.
7.
AC cord protection—The AC cords must be routed properly to prevent people from stepping on them or
objects from resting on them. Check the cords at the plugs and product.
8.
Overloading—Do not overload AC outlets or extension cords. Overloading can cause fire or electric shock.

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.
10. 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.

qualified service person to perform repairs.
a.
b.
c.
d.
When the AC cord or plug is damaged.
When a liquid was spilled on the product or when objects have fallen into the product.
When the product has been exposed to rain or water.
When the product does not operate properly as described in the operating instructions.
Do not touch the controls other than those described in the operating instructions. Improper adjustment
of controls not described in the instructions can cause damage, which often requires extensive adjustment
work by a qualified technician.
e. When the product has been dropped or damaged.
f. When the product displays an abnormal condition. Any noticeable abnormality in the product indicates
that the product needs servicing.
12. Replacement parts—In case the product needs replacement parts, make sure that the service person uses
replacement parts specified by the manufacturer, or those with the same characteristics and performance as
the original parts. Use of unauthorized parts can result in fire, electric shock and/or other danger.

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.
• 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.
• 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 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.
The LCD panel is a very high technology product
with 3,147,264 thin film transistors, 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 or
red.
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 onto the
speakers. Be sure to always
carry the TV by two people
holding it with two hands—one
hand on each side of the TV.
• Do not display a still picture for a long time, as this
could cause an afterimage to remain.

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.
Storage temperature: –20°C to +60°C.
