• Although the LCD screen is made with high-precision
technology and 99.99% or more of the pixels are
effective, black dots may appear or bright points of light
(red, blue, or green) may appear constantly on the LCD
screen. This is a structural property of the LCD screen
and is not a malfunction.

top of this TV set. The image may be uneven or the LCD
screen may be damaged.
• If this TV set is used in a cold place, a smear may occur
in the picture or the picture may become dark. This does
not indicate a failure. These phenomena disappear as the
temperature rises.
• Ghosting may occur when still pictures are displayed
continuously. It may disappear after a few moments.
• The screen and cabinet get warm when this TV set is in
use. This is not a malfunction.
