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
and mercury. The fluorescent tubes used in this TV set
also contain mercury. Follow your local ordinances and
regulations for disposal.
Handling and cleaning the screen surface/cabinet of
the TV set
Be sure to unplug the mains lead connected to the TV set
from mains socket before cleaning.
To avoid material degradation or screen coating degradation,
observe the following precautions.
• To remove dust from the screen surface/cabinet, wipe
gently with a soft cloth. If dust is persistent, wipe with a
soft cloth slightly moistened with a diluted mild detergent
solution.
• Never use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline/acid cleaner,
scouring powder, or volatile solvent, such as alcohol,
benzene, thinner or insecticide. Using such materials or
maintaining prolonged contact with rubber or vinyl
materials may result in damage to the screen surface and
cabinet material.
• When adjusting the angle of the TV set, move it slowly so
as to prevent the TV set from moving or slipping off from
its table stand.
Optional Equipment
Keep optional components or any equipment emitting
electromagnetic radiation away from the TV set. Otherwise
