Introduction
Important safety precautions
• Cleaning—Unplug the AC power adapter from the AC outlet before cleaning the product. Use a damp cloth to clean the product. Do
not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
• Use a soft damp cloth to gently wipe the product when it is dirty. To protect the product, do not use a chemical cloth to clean it.
Chemicals may cause damage or cracks in the casing of the product.
• 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, or
table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the product.
• 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 casing 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.
• Heat sources—Keep the product away from heat sources such as radiators, heaters, stoves and other heatgenerating products (including amplifiers).
• To prevent fire, never place any type of candle or naked flames on the top or near the product.
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not place the AC power adapter under the product or other heavy items.
• The product uses power even in Standby. Unplug the product from the AC outlet when you are not using it.
• Servicing—Do not attempt to service the product yourself. Removing covers can expose you to high voltage
and other dangerous conditions. Request a qualified person to perform servicing.
Devices connected to the protective earthing of the building installation through the MAINS connection or through other devices with a
connection to protective earthing and to a television distribution system using coaxial cable, may in some circumstances create a fire
hazard. Connection to a television distribution system therefore has to be provided through a device providing electrical isolation within a
certain frequency range (galvanic isolator, see EN 60728-11).
NOTE
• For requirements in Norway and Sweden, the requirements for isolation are also relevant for devices that can be connected to
television distribution systems.

CAUTION
Improper use of batteries can result in chemical leakage or explosion. Be sure to follow the instructions below.
• Do not mix batteries of different types. Different types of batteries have different characteristics.
• Do not mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new batteries or cause chemical leakage in old
batteries.
• Remove batteries as soon as they have worn out. Chemicals that leak from batteries can cause a rash. If you find any chemical leakage,
wipe thoroughly with a cloth.
• The batteries supplied with this product may have a shorter life expectancy due to storage conditions.
• If you will not be using the remote control unit for an extended period of time, remove the batteries from it.
• When replacing the batteries, use zinc-carbon batteries instead of alkaline ones.
Note on disposing batteries:
The batteries provided contain no harmful materials such as cadmium, lead or mercury.
Regulations concerning used batteries stipulate that batteries may no longer be thrown out with the household rubbish.
Deposit any used batteries free of charge into the designated collection containers set up at commercial businesses.
Using the remote control unit
Use the remote control unit by pointing it towards the
front of the Receiver. Objects between the remote control
unit and sensor may prevent proper operation.
Remote control sensor
Cautions regarding the remote control unit
• Do not expose the remote control unit to shock. In addition, do not expose
the remote control unit to liquids, and do not place in an area with high
humidity.
• Do not place the remote control unit under direct sunlight. The heat may
cause deformation of the unit.
• The remote control unit may not work properly if the remote control sensor of
the Receiver is under direct sunlight or strong lighting. In such cases, change
the angle of the lighting or the Receiver, or operate the remote control unit
closer to the remote control sensor.

Connecting external devices
E Before connecting ...
• Be sure to turn off the Receiver and any external equipment before making connections.
• Firmly connect a cable to a terminal or socket.
• Carefully read the operation manual of each external device for possible connection types. This also helps you get the best audiovisual
quality to maximise the potential of the Receiver and the connected device.
NOTE
• The cables illustrated in pages 13 to 15 are commercially available items.
Video connections
HDMI connection
Example of connectable devices
E HD Ready TV
The HDMI connection permits digital video and audio transmission via a connection cable to a TV. The digital picture
and sound data are transmitted without data compression and therefore lose none of their quality. Analogue to digital
conversion is no longer necessary in any connected devices, which would also result in quality losses.

Problem
Possible solution
•
No power.
•
•
•
Check if you pressed a on the remote control unit.
Is the AC power adapter disconnected?
Check if you pressed a on the Receiver.
•
The Receiver cannot be operated.

re-plugging it in after one or two minutes.
•
Remote control unit does not operate.
•
•
•
•
Are batteries inserted with polarity (e, f) aligned?
Are batteries worn out? (Replace with new batteries.)
Are you using it under strong or fluorescent lighting?
Is a fluorescent light illuminating the remote control sensor?
•
Picture is cut off.
•
Are screen mode adjustments (WIDE MODE) such as picture size made correctly? (Page 17)
•
Power is suddenly turned off.
•
•
The Receiver’s internal temperature has increased. Remove any objects blocking the vent or clean.
Is auto standby activated? (Page 21)
•
No picture.
•
•
•
•
•
Are connections to external equipment correct? (Pages 13 to 15)
Is the input signal type selected correctly after connection? (Page 17)
Is the correct output source selected? (Page 10)
Is the antenna connected properly? (Page 9)

watch a TV broadcast and the unit is left on. This is not a malfunction of the unit.
Cautions regarding use in high and low temperature environments
• When the Receiver 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 Receiver will recover when the temperature returns to normal.
• Do not leave the Receiver in a hot or cold location. Also, do not leave the Receiver in a location exposed to direct sunlight or near a
heater.
