About LCD Monitor
Temperature
When the LCD Monitor is used for an
extended period, the panel surrounds become
warm. You may feel hot when touching there
by the hand.
Precautions
Viewing the TV
• View the TV in moderate light, as
viewing the TV in poor light or during
long period of time, strains your eyes.
• When using headphones, adjust the
volume so as to avoid excessive levels, as
hearing damage may result.
LCD Screen
• 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.
• Do not push or scratch the front filter, or
place objects on 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.
• The LCD screen contains a small amount
of liquid crystal. Some fluorescent tubes
used in this TV set also contain mercury
(except for LED backlight LCD TV).
Follow your local ordinances and
regulations for disposal.
Keep optional components or any equipment
emitting electromagnetic radiation away
from the TV set. Otherwise picture distortion
and/or noisy sound may occur.

alkaline/acid cleaner, scouring powder, or
volatile solvent, such as alcohol, benzene,
thinner or insecticide. Using such
materials or maintaining prolonged

openings is recommended to ensure to
proper ventilation.
