Installation
Power
This set operates on an AC mains supply, the voltage is as indicated on
the label on the back cover. Never apply DC power to the set. In the event
of thunderstorms or powercuts, please pull out the aerial and mains plugs.
Warning
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose the set to rain or moisture.
Wiring (in U.K. only)
This set is supplied with a BS 1363 approved 13 amp mains plug, fused
at 5 amp. When replacing the fuse always use a 5 amp BS 1362, BSI or
ASTA approved type. Never use this plug with the fuse cover omitted. To
obtain a replacement fuse cover contact your dealer or "LG Electronics
U.K. Ltd.".
If the type of plug supplied is not suitable for the mains sockets in your
home, then the plug should be removed and a suitable type fitted. Please
refer to the wiring instructions below:
Warning (in U.K. only)
A mains plug removed from the mains lead of this set must be destroyed.
A mains plug with bared wires is hazardous if inserted in a mains socket.
Do not connect either wire to the earth pin, marked with the letter E or
with the earth symbol
or coloured green or green and yellow.
If any other plug is fitted, use a 5 amp fuse, either in the plug, or at the
distribution board.
Important (in U.K. only)
The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following
codes:
BLUE: NEUTRAL
BROWN: LIVE
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this set may not
correspond with the coloured marking identifying the terminals in your
plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which
is marked with the letter N or coloured black. The wire which is coloured
brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L
or coloured red.
Service
Never remove the back cover of the set as this can expose you to very
high voltage and other hazards. If the set does not operate properly,
unplug it and call your dealer.
Aerial
Connect the aerial cable to the socket marked +75Ω on the back cover.
For the best reception an outdoor aerial should be used.
Location
Position your set so that no bright light or sunlight falls directly onto the
screen. Care should be taken not to expose the set to any unnecessary
vibration, moisture, dust or heat. Also ensure that the set is placed in a
position to allow a free flow of air. Do not cover the ventilation openings
on the back cover.
