changing images that fill the screen.
Glossary
DVI (Digital Visual Interface) : A digital interface
standard created by the Digital Display Working Group
(DDWG) to convert analog signals into digital signals to
accommodate both analog and digital monitors.
VGA (Video Graphics Array) : a common standard
graphics display system for PCs.
RGB signals : These are the three video signals, Red
Green Blue, which make up the picture. Using these
signals improves picture quality.
S-VHS signals : These are 2 separate Y/C video
signals from the S-VHS and Hi-8 recording standards.
The luminance signals Y (black and white) and
chrominance signals C (colour) are recorded
separately on the tape. This provides better picture
quality than with standard video (VHS and 8 mm)
where the Y/C signals are combined to provide only
one video signal.
NICAM sound : Process by which digital sound can
be transmitted.
16:9 : Refers to the ratio between the length and
height of the screen. Wide screen televisions have
a ratio of 16/9, conventional screen TV sets have a
ratio of 4/3.
18
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) :
Provides an uncompressed, all digital audio/video
interface between the TV and any HDMI-equipped
audio/video component, such as set-top box, DVD
player and A/V receiver. HDMI supports enhanced or
high-definition video plus two-channel digital audio.
System : Television pictures are not broadcast in
the same way in all countries. There are different
standards: BG, DK, I, and LL’. The System setting (p. 8)
is used to select these different standards. This is not
to be confused with PAL or SECAM colour coding.
PAL is used in most countries in Europe, SECAM in
France, Russia and most African countries. The United
States and Japan use a different system called NTSC.
HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital-Content Protection):
HDCP encrypts the transmission of digital content
between the video source or transmitter such as a
computer, DVD player or set-top box and the digital
display or receiver such as a monitor, television or
projector.

Information for users in 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.
General Points
Please take note of the section entitled 'Tips' at the
end of this booklet.
Interference
The Department of Trade and Industry operates a
Radio Interference Investigation Service to help TV
licence holders improve reception of BBC 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
This apparatus is fitted with an approved moulded
13AMP plug. 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
The aerial should be connected to the socket marked
: at the back of the set.An inferior aerial is 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.
