Philips 26HF5444/10 Specifications

Information for users in the UK (not applicable outside the UK)
Positioning the TV
For the best results, choose a position where light does not fall directly on the screen, and at some
distance away from radiators or other sources of heat. Leave a space of at least 5 cm all around the
TV for ventilation, making sure that curtains, cupboards etc. cannot obstruct the air flow through the
ventilation apertures. The TV is intended for use in a domestic environment only and should never be
operated or stored in excessively hot or humid atmospheres.
Interference
The Department of Trade and Industry operates a Radio Interference Investigation Service to help
TV license holders improve reception of BBS and IBA programmes where they are being spoilt by
interference.
If your dealer cannot help, ask at a main Post Office for the booklet “How to Improve Television and
Radio Reception”.
Mains Connection
Before connecting the TV to the mains, check that the mains supply voltage corresponds to the
voltage printed on the type plate on the rear panel of the TV. If the mains voltage is different, consult
your dealer.
Important
Should it become necessary to replace the mains fuse, this must be replaced with a fuse of the same
value as indicated on the plug.
1. Remove fuse cover and fuse.
2. The replacement fuse must comply with BS 1362 and have the ASTA approval mark. If the
fuse is lost, make contact with your retailer in order to verify the correct type.
3. Refit the fuse cover
In order to maintain conformity to the EMC directive, the mains plug on this product must not be
removed.
Connecting the aerial
at the back of the set. An inferior aerial is
The aerial should be connected to the socket marked
likely to result in a poor, perhaps unstable picture with ghost images and lack of contrast. Make-shift
loft or set-top aerials are often inadequate. Your dealer will know from experience the most suitable
type for your locality.
Should you wish to use the set in conjunction with other equipment, which connects to the aerial
socket such as TV games, or a video camera it is recommended that these be connected via a
combiner unit to avoid repeated connection and disconnection of the aerial plug.
Fitting the stand (if provided)
Use only the stand provided with the set, making sure that the fixings are properly tightened. A
diagram showing how to assemble the stand is packed with the stand. Never use a make-shift stand,
or legs fixed with woodscrews.
