SPECIAL NOTE FOR USERS IN THE U.K.
The mains lead of this product is fitted with a non-rewireable (moulded) plug incorporating a 13A fuse. Should the
or
and of the same rating as above,
fuse need to be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved BS 1362 fuse marked
which is also indicated on the pin face of the plug, must be used.
Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse. Never use the plug without the fuse cover fitted.
In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home not being compatible with the plug supplied, cut off the mains
plug and fit an appropriate type.
ASA
DANGER:
The fuse from the cut-off plug should be removed and the cut-off plug destroyed immediately and disposed of in a
safe manner.
Under no circumstances should the cut-off plug be inserted elsewhere into a 13A socket outlet, as a serious electric
shock may occur.
To fit an appropriate plug to the mains lead, follow the instructions below:
IMPORTANT:
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Blue: Neutral
Brown: Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this product may not correspond with the coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
• The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked N or coloured black.
• The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked L or coloured red.
Ensure that neither the brown nor the blue wire is connected to the earth terminal in your three-pin plug.
Before replacing the plug cover make sure that:
• If the new fitted plug contains a fuse, its value is the same as that removed from the cut-off plug.
• The cord grip is clamped over the sheath of the mains lead, and not simply over the lead wires.
IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT, CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.

Introduction
Dear SHARP customer
Thank you for your purchase of the SHARP LCD colour TV product. To ensure safety and many years of troublefree operation of your product, please read the Important Safety Precautions carefully before using this product.
Important Safety Precautions
• Cleaning—Unplug the AC cord from the AC outlet before cleaning the product. Use a damp cloth to clean the product.
Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
• Water and moisture—Do not use the product near water, such as bathtub, washbasin, kitchen sink, laundry tub,
swimming pool and in a wet basement.
• Do not place vases or any other water-filled containers on this product.
The water may spill onto the product causing fire or electric shock.
• Stand—Do not place the product on an unstable cart, stand, tripod or table. Doing so can cause the
product to fall, resulting in serious personal injuries as well as damage to the product. Use only a cart,
stand, tripod, bracket or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the product. When
mounting the product on a wall, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Use only the mounting
hardware recommended by the manufacturer.
• When relocating the product placed on a cart, it must be moved with utmost care. Sudden stops,
excessive force and uneven floor surface can cause the product to fall from the cart.
• Ventilation—The vents and other openings in the cabinet are designed for ventilation. Do not cover or
block these vents and openings since insufficient ventilation can cause overheating and/or shorten the
life of the product. Do not place the product on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface, since they
can block ventilation openings. This product is not designed for built-in installation; do not place the
product in an enclosed place such as a bookcase or rack, unless proper ventilation is provided or the
manufacturer’s instructions are followed.
• The LCD panel used in this product is made of glass. Therefore, it can break when the product is
dropped or impact applied. If the LCD panel is broken, be careful not to be injured by broken glass.
• Heat sources—Keep the product away from heat sources such as radiators, heaters, stoves and other heat-generating
products (including amplifiers).
• To prevent fire, never place any type of candle or naked flames on the top or near the TV set.
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not place the AC cord under the TV set or other heavy items.
• Do not display a still picture for a long time, as this could cause an afterimage to remain.
• There is power consumption always if main plug is connected.
• Servicing—Do not attempt to service the product yourself. Removing covers can expose you to high
voltage and other dangerous conditions. Request a qualified person to perform servicing.
The LCD panel is a very high technology product, giving you fine picture details.
Due to the very large number of pixels, occasionally a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen as a
fixed point of blue, green or red.
This is within product specifications and does not constitute a fault.
Precautions when transporting the TV
When transporting the TV, never carry it by holding onto the speakers. Be sure to always carry the TV by two
people holding it with two hands — one hand on each side of the TV.
WARNING:
This is a Class A product. In a domestic environment this product may cause radio interference in which case
the user may be required to take adequate measures.

2
Open the battery cover.
Insert two supplied “AAA” alkaline size batteries.
• Place batteries with their terminals corresponding
to the (k) and (l) indications in the battery
compartment.
3
Close the battery cover.
CAUTION
Improper use of batteries can result in chemical leakage or explosion. Be sure to follow the instructions below.
• Do not mix batteries of different types. Different types of batteries have different characteristics.
• Do not mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new batteries or cause chemical
leakage in old batteries.
• Remove batteries as soon as they have worn out. Chemicals that leak from batteries can cause a rash. If you find any
chemical leakage, wipe thoroughly with a cloth.
• When replacing the batteries, use alkaline batteries instead of manganese ones.
• Do not overuse the light-up function of the LIGHT D button, doing so may shorten the battery life. Replace the batteries
when the light on the LCD window or the light-up function becomes weak or when the window becomes blurry.
• Do not continue to use the remote control unit with the batteries running low. This may result in error
message or malfunction. Should this happen replace the batteries and leave it unused for a while.
Otherwise, you may open the rear battery cover and press the RESET button. When you press the RESET
RESET button, your Universal remote control settings will be deleted.
button
• The remote control unit has a internal memory of external devices. In order not to lose the data,
replace the batteries quickly. If the manufacturer code is initialised and lost, you can input the
manufacturer code again. (See page 38 - 41.)
• The batteries supplied with this product may have a shorter life expectancy due to storage
conditions.
• If you will not be using the remote control unit for an extended period of time, remove the batteries from it.
Note on disposing batteries:
The batteries provided contain no harmful materials such as cadmium, lead or mercury.
Regulations concerning used batteries stipulate that batteries may no longer be thrown out with the household
rubbish. Deposit any used batteries free of charge into the designated collection containers set up at commercial
businesses.
Using the remote control unit
Use the remote control unit by pointing it
towards the remote control sensor. Objects

via a connection cable from a player/recorder. The
digital picture and sound data are transmitted without
data compression and therefore lose none of their
quality. Analogue/digital conversion is no longer
necessary in the connected devices, which also would
result in quality losses.
You will enjoy accurate colour reproduction and

While the TV is in standby mode, it automatically turns on and plays back the image from the audiovisual source
(e.g. VCR, DVD).
TV Standby
When the TV enters standby mode, the connected audiovisual equipment (e.g. VCR, DVD) enters standby mode
as well.
WYSIWYR (What You See Is What You Record)
When the remote control unit of the connected VCR has the WYSIWYR button, you can automatically start
recording by pressing the WYSIWYR button.
Preset Download
Automatically transfers the channel preset information from the tuner on the TV to the one on the connected
audiovisual equipment (e.g. VCR) via the EXT 2 terminal.
NOTE
• Refer to the operation manuals of external equipment the details.
• Only works when the audiovisual equipment is connected to the EXT 2 terminal on the TV with AV Link via a fully wired
SCART.
• The use of the AV Link function is only possible if the TV-set has enforced a complete auto installation with the connected
audiovisual equipment. (Page 9, initial auto installation)
The availability of the AV Link function depends on the audiovisual equipment used. Depending on the manufacturer and type
of equipment used, it is possible that the described functions may be completely or partially unusable.

Controlling HDMI devices using AQUOS LINK
What is AQUOS LINK?
Using the HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronics Control) protocol, with AQUOS LINK you can
interactively operate compatible system devices (AV amplifier, DVD, Blu-ray Disc device)
using a single remote control.
NOTE
• AQUOS LINK-compatible AQUOS BD Player, AQUOS AUDIO speaker system and AQUOS
Recorder are to be on sale after the release of this TV. (As of September 2007)
What you can do with AQUOS LINK
✔ One Touch Recording (DTV only)
You do not have to search for the remote control of your recording device. Press the REC
E or REC STOP H buttons inside the flip cover to start/stop recording what you see on
the recorder.
✔ One Touch Play
While the TV is in standby mode, it automatically turns on and plays back the image from
the HDMI source.
✔ Single remote control operation
The AQUOS LINK automatically recognises the connected HDMI device and you can
control the TV and the devices as if using a universal remote control.
✔ Operating Title list of external devices
In addition to displaying the TV’s own Timer list (Page 12), you can also call up the
external player’s Top menu or AQUOS BD Player’s/AQUOS Recorder’s Title list provided
that the devices support AQUOS LINK.
✔ Multiple control of HDMI devices
You can select which HDMI device to operate using the OPTION button.
NOTE
• Point the remote control toward the TV, not to the connected HDMI device.
• Video noise may occur depending on the type of HDMI cable used. Make sure to use a certified
HDMI cable.
• Up to 3 HDMI recording devices, one AV amplifier and two players can be connected using this
system.
• These operations affect the HDMI device selected as the current external source. If the device
does not operate, turn on the device and select the appropriate external source using b.
• When you insert/remove HDMI cables or change connections, turn on all connected HDMI
devices before turning on the TV. Confirm that picture and audio are correctly output by selecting
“EXT4”, “EXT5” or “EXT6” from the INPUT SOURCE menu.

Appendix
Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Solution
• No power.
• Check if you pressed TV B on the remote control unit.
If the indicator on the TV lights up red, press TV B.
• Is the AC cord disconnected?
• Check if you pressed a on the TV.
• Unit cannot be operated.
• External influences such as lightning, static electricity, etc., may cause improper
operation. In this case, operate the unit after first turning the power off, or
unplugging the AC cord and re-plugging it in after 1 or 2 minutes.
• Remote control unit does not
operate.
•
•
•
•
•
• Picture is cut off.
• Is the image position correct?
• Are screen mode adjustments (WIDE MODE) such as picture size made correctly?
(Pages 29 and 33)
• Strange colour, light colour, or
dark, or colour misalignment.
• Adjust the picture tone.
• Is the room too bright? The picture may look dark in a room that is too bright.
• Check the colour system setting. (Pages 27 and 32)
• Power is suddenly turned off.
• The unit’s internal temperature has increased.
Remove any objects blocking the vent or clean.
• Is the sleep timer set? Select “Off” from the “Sleep Timer” menu. (Page 26)
• Is “No signal off” activated?
• No picture.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
• No sound.
• Is the volume too low?
• Make sure that headphones are not connected.
• Check if you pressed e on the remote control unit.
• The TV sometimes makes a
cracking sound.
• This is not a malfunction. This happens when the cabinet slightly expands and
contracts according to change in temperature. This does not affect the TV’s
performance.
Is the FUNCTION button set correctly? Set it to the TV setting position. (Page 38)
Are batteries inserted with polarity (e, f) aligned?
Are batteries worn out? (Replace with new batteries.)
Are you using it under strong or fluorescent lighting?
Is a fluorescent light illuminated onto the remote control sensor?
Are connections to external equipment correct? (Pages 15-17)
Is the input signal type selected correctly after connection? (Page 32)
Is the correct input source selected? (Page 10)
Is a non-compatible signal being input? (Page 36)
Is the picture adjustment correct? (Pages 24-25)
Is the antenna connected properly? (Page 8)
Is “On” selected in “Audio Only”? (Page 30)
Cautions regarding use in high and low temperature environments
• When the unit is used in a low temperature space (e.g. room, office), the picture may leave trails or appear slightly delayed.
This is not a malfunction, and the unit will recover when the temperature returns to normal.
• Do not leave the unit in a hot or cold location. Also, do not leave the unit in a location exposed to direct sunlight or near a
heater, as this may cause the cabinet to deform and the LCD panel to malfunction.
Storage temperature: e5°C to e35°C.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR USERS IN THE U.K.
The mains lead of this product is fitted with a non-rewireable (moulded) plug incorporating a 13A fuse. Should the
or
and of the same rating as above,
fuse need to be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved BS 1362 fuse marked
which is also indicated on the pin face of the plug, must be used.
Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse. Never use the plug without the fuse cover fitted.
In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home not being compatible with the plug supplied, cut off the mains
plug and fit an appropriate type.
ASA
DANGER:
The fuse from the cut-off plug should be removed and the cut-off plug destroyed immediately and disposed of in a
safe manner.
Under no circumstances should the cut-off plug be inserted elsewhere into a 13A socket outlet, as a serious electric
shock may occur.
To fit an appropriate plug to the mains lead, follow the instructions below:
IMPORTANT:
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Blue: Neutral
Brown: Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this product may not correspond with the coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
• The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked N or coloured black.
• The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked L or coloured red.
Ensure that neither the brown nor the blue wire is connected to the earth terminal in your three-pin plug.
Before replacing the plug cover make sure that:
• If the new fitted plug contains a fuse, its value is the same as that removed from the cut-off plug.
• The cord grip is clamped over the sheath of the mains lead, and not simply over the lead wires.
IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT, CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.
