Safety
Using mounting accessories: Any mounting of the TV should follow the manufacturer’s
instructions and should use the mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer.
Adjust the volume: Turn down the volume before using headphones or other audio devices.
Use the correct external power source: The product should be operated only from the type of
power source indicated on the electrical ratings label. If you are not sure of the type of power source
required, consult your HP authorized service provider or local power company.
Position the power cord carefully: Route the power cord so that it will not be walked on,
tripped over, or pinched by items placed upon or against it. Pay particular attention to the plug,
electrical outlet and the point where the power cord exits the product.
Overloading: Do not overload an electrical outlet, power strip, or convenience receptacle. The
overall system load must not exceed 80% of the power strip input rating.
Observe extension cord ratings: If an extension cord or power strip is used, make sure that the
cord or strip is rated for the product and that the total ampere ratings of all products plugged into the
extension cord or power strip do not exceed 80% of the extension cord or strip ampere ratings limit.
Using cables and power cords:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Plug the product into a grounded (earthed) electrical outlet that is easily accessible at all times.
Do not disable the power cord grounding plug. The ground plug is an important safety feature.
Disconnect power from the TV by unplugging the power cord from the electrical outlet.
Do not pull on cords and cables. When unplugging the cord from an electrical outlet, grasp and
pull the cord by the plug.
Do not attempt to power the TV with converter kits sold for appliances.

Cleaning the TV
Use a dry, soft cloth to remove dust from the TV screen and the chassis.
• Unplug the TV before cleaning the screen.
• A special anti-glare coating is applied to the screen of your TV. Using solvents such as alcohol or
•
•
abrasive material such as a power towel may affect the screen coating or bezel paint.
Do not expose the product to volatile gas or fluid such as a pesticide.
Do not put the TV in contact with vinyl or rubber products for a long period of time. Extended
contact may result in the removal of the coating or degradation of the surface.
Preventing Image Retention
Your plasma TV illuminates phosphor to display images, much like a conventional tube-type television.
Viewing stationary images for extended periods of time results in uneven aging of the phosphor,
causing grayed-out images to permanently appear on the screen.
Permanent image retention can be avoided by taking some basic precautions. Following the
recommendations listed below ensures your plasma TV will have longer life and offer better
performance:
• Whenever possible, avoid frequently displaying stationary images, such as Web sites, computer
•
•
•
•
graphics, or video games for extended periods of time.
Display video and images in the widescreen 16:9 ratio format. Use the Aspect button on the
remote control to change from 4:3 screen size (such as standard television) to fill the screen in
16:9 ratio. This will prevent potential image retention of sidebars. Refer to “Selecting the screen
aspect” on page 23.
Avoid viewing the on screen display (OSD) menus from DVD players, VCRs, and other components
for extended periods of time.
When watching a movie from a DVD player or VCR, do not leave the same image paused
continuously over a long period of time.
Turn down the contrast and brightness of the screen. High brightness and contrast can accelerate
image retention of stationary images.
Image retention and uneven screen aging are not covered by your HP Warranty; refer to the Warranty
and Support Guide that came with your TV.
Wall Mounting or Stand Replacement
A specified technician from the distributor or authorized agent should install the TV, including stand
replacement or wall mounting. Wall mounting brackets are sold separately and are not included with
the TV.
Wall mounting the TV requires:
•
•
•
•
Removal of the transport handles on the back of the TV.
Removal of the stand from the TV panel.
Assembly of the wall mounting bracket and installation of the bracket onto the TV panel.
Placement and installation of the TV panel with wall bracket onto the wall.
Due to the size and weight of the TV, it is recommended that a minimum of two people move it.

Using the TV
Using the Remote Control
The remote control operates the TV, your cable or satellite set-top-box, your DVD/VCR, and your
HP Media Center PC (HP PC). Refer to “Identifying the Remote Control buttons” on page 8 for
information on the remote control buttons.
NOTE: Use the remote control within a distance of 16.4 feet (5 meters) from the front of the TV remote
control sensor window and at the maximum horizontal and vertical angles of 30°.
To use the remote control:
1 Press the TV, CBL/SAT, DVD/VCR, or HP.PC button to select the home entertainment component
(TV, set-top-box, DVD/VCR, or HP MCPC) to control.
2 Aim the remote control at the remote control sensor of the selected home entertainment component,
and then press the button you want to use.
Programming the remote control for component control
Programming the component code
1 Turn on the TV. Turn on the cable or satellite set-top-box, VCR, or DVD and, if applicable, insert
media (a cassette or a disc).
NOTE: Please read steps 2 through 4 completely before proceeding. We recommend highlighting
or writing down the codes and device you wish to program before performing step 2.
2 On the remote control, press CBL/SAT button or DVD/VCR button once. Press and hold SETUP until
the red light blinks twice, then release SETUP.
3 Use the Manufacturer’s Codes (see listing that follows) to locate the type of component by brand
name and then enter the first four-digit code for your component. If performed correctly, the red
light blinks twice.
NOTE: If the red light did not blink twice, then repeat steps 2 and 3, entering the code again.
4 Aim the remote control at the component and press PWR once. The component should turn off. If it
does not respond, repeat steps 2 and 3, trying each code for your brand until you find one that
works. If it still does not work, try searching for the code; see “Searching for the component code“
on page 34.
NOTE: If the device does not have a power button, press PLAY.
5 Repeat steps 1 through 4 for each component you want to control with the remote control.
Using the TV
33
Searching for the component code
If your device does not respond to the remote control after trying all codes listed for your brand, or if
your brand is not listed at all, try searching for your code:
1 On the remote control, press CBL/SAT button or DVD/VCR button once.
2 Press and hold SETUP until the red light blinks twice, then release SETUP.
3 Press the number buttons 9, 9,1. The red light blinks twice.
4 Aim the remote control at the set-top-box or the VCR or DVD and slowly alternate between pressing
PWR and the component (CBL/SAT or DVD/VCR) button. Stop when the component turns off.
NOTE: In the search mode, the remote control sends codes from its library to the selected device,
starting with the most popular code first.
5 Press SETUP once to lock in the code.
Checking the component code
If you have set up the remote control to use a component, you may need to find out which four-digit
code is operating your component equipment:
1 On the remote control, press CBL/SAT or DVD/VCR once.
2 Press and hold SETUP until the red light blinks twice, then release SETUP.
3 Press the number buttons 9, 9,1. The red light blinks twice.
4 For the first digit of the code, press the number button 1 once. Wait 3 seconds, and then count the
number of times the red light blinks and write down the number.
NOTE: When you count three blinks, it means the code digit is 3. When a code digit is 0, the red
light will not blink.
5 Repeat step 4 for the three remaining digits of the code, pressing 2 for the second digit, 3 for the
third digit, and 4 for the fourth digit.
Reassigning component buttons
The remote control can be set up to control a second TV or VCR, or any combination of eight home
entertainment components.
For example, to control a TV, a Cable Converter, and two VCRs, you need to re-assign a component
button to operate the second VCR as follows:
1 On the remote control, press and hold SETUP until the red light blinks twice, then release SETUP.
2 Press the number buttons 9, 9,1. The red light blinks twice.
3 Press DVD/VCR once, then press CBL/SAT once.
4 The CBL/SAT button is now ready to be programmed for your second VCR. See “Programming the
component code“ on page 33.
34
Using the TV
To re-assign other device keys, repeat steps 1 through 4 by substituting the key sequence from the
following table for the most popular components:
To assign
Use this sequence
TV as 2nd DVD/VCR button
SETUP - 9 - 9 - 2 — DVD/VCR - TV
TV as 2nd CBL/SAT button
SETUP - 9 - 9 - 2 — CBL/SAT - TV
TV back to TV
SETUP - 9 - 9 - 2 — TV - TV
VCR as 2nd CBL/SAT button
SETUP - 9 - 9 - 2 — CBL/SAT - VCR
VCR back to VCR
SETUP - 9 - 9 - 2 — VCR - VCR
CBL/SAT as 2nd VCR button
SETUP - 9 - 9 - 2 — VCR - CBL/SAT
CBL/SAT back to CBL/SAT
SETUP - 9 - 9 - 2 — CBL/SAT - CBL/SAT
When a re-assignment is done, the red light blinks twice to confirm your choice. Then, you need to
program the remote control to control the new component; see “Programming the component code“
on page 33.
Changing volume lock
The remote control is set to control volume of a component through your TV while in the TV, DVD/VCR,
or CBL/SAT mode. However, in the HP.PC mode you have separate control of the volume.
If you want the volume to be controlled by a different component than the TV, you can change the
Volume Lock setting to control volume through a non-associated mode (e.g., through the cable in the
TV mode).
To change volume lock to another mode:
1 On the remote control, press and hold SETUP until the red light blinks twice, then release SETUP.
2 Press the number buttons 9, 9, 3, and then press any mode key once (except TV). The red light will
blink twice.
3 Now, whenever you press VOL+, VOL–, or MUTE, volume is controlled by your component mode
choice.
To change volume lock back to the TV mode:
1 On the remote control, press and hold SETUP until the red light blinks twice, then release SETUP.
2 Press the number buttons 9, 9, 3, and then press TV. The red light blinks twice.
3 Now, whenever you press VOL+, VOL–, or MUTE on the remote control, volume is controlled by
your TV.

Troubleshooting the remote control programming
Problem
Solution
Red light does not blink when you press a key.
Replace the batteries with two (2) new AA nonrechargeable batteries.
Red light blinks when you press a key, but
home entertainment component does not
respond.
Make sure the remote control is aimed at your home
entertainment component and is not farther than
15 feet away.
Remote control does not control home
entertainment components or commands are
not working properly.
Try all listed codes for the component brands being set up.
Make sure they can be operated with an infrared remote
control.
No volume on a 2nd TV.
Follow instructions in “Changing Volume Lock.”
CH+, CH–, and CH.RTN do not work for your
RCA TV.
Due to RCA design (1983-1987), only the original remote
control will operate these functions.
Changing channels does not work properly.
If original remote control required pressing ENTER to
change channels, press ENTER on the Remote control after
entering the channel number.
Tried “Search Method” and still could not find
a working code.
Try the “Search Method” again after clearing out the
component button as follows: Press and hold SETUP until
red light blinks twice, then release. Next enter 9 - 9 - 2.
Then press and release the component button to be cleared
twice.
