CHILD SAFETY:
It Makes A Difference How and Where You Use Your Flat Panel Display
Congratulations on your purchase! As you enjoy your new product, please keep these safety tips in mind:
THE ISSUE
• The home theater entertainment experience is a growing trend and larger flat panel displays
are popular purchases. However, flat panel displays are not always supported on the proper
stands or installed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
• Flat panel displays that are inappropriately situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks,
speakers, chests or carts may fall over and cause injury.
THIS MANUFACTURER CARES!
• The consumer electronics industry is committed to making home entertainment enjoyable
and safe.
TUNE INTO SAFETY
• One size does NOT fit all. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the safe installation
and use of your flat panel display.
• Carefully read and understand all enclosed instructions for proper use of this product.
• Don’t allow children to climb on or play with furniture and television sets.
• Don’t place flat panel displays on furniture that can easily be used as steps, such as a chest
of drawers.
• Remember that children can become excited while watching a program, especially on a
“larger than life” flat panel display. Care should be taken to place or install the display where it
cannot be pushed, pulled over, or knocked down.
• Care should be taken to route all cords and cables connected to the flat panel display so that
they cannot be pulled or grabbed by curious children.
WALL MOUNTING: IF YOU DECIDE TO WALL MOUNT YOUR FLAT PANEL DISPLAY, ALWAYS:
• Use a mount that has been recommended by the display manufacturer and/or listed by an independent laboratory (such
as UL, CSA, ETL).
• Follow all instructions supplied by the display and wall mount manufacturers.
• If you have any doubts about your ability to safely install your flat panel display, contact your retailer about professional
installation.
• Make sure that the wall where you are mounting the display is appropriate. Some wall mounts are not designed to be
mounted to walls with steel studs or old cinder block construction. If you are unsure, contact a professional installer.
• A minimum of two people are required for installation. Flat panel displays can be heavy.

⑪ AUDIO
AV MODE
■ MTS/SAP stereo mode
The TV has a feature that allows reception of sound
other than the main audio for the program. This feature
is called Multi-channel Television Sound (MTS). The TV
with MTS can receive mono sound, stereo sound
and Secondary Audio Programs (SAP). The SAP
feature allows a TV station to broadcast other
information, which could be audio in another language
or something completely different like weather
information.
AV MODE gives you several viewing options to choose
from to best match the surrounding environment of the
TV, which can vary due to factors like room brightness,
type of program watched or the type of image input
from external equipment.
Press AV MODE. Current AV MODE displays.
• Press AV MODE again before the mode displayed on the
screen disappears. The mode changes as shown below:
Example:
When the input source is TV, INPUT 1, 2 or 3 terminals

where available.
• Stereo broadcasts: View programs like live sporting
events, shows and concerts in dynamic stereo sound.
• SAP broadcasts: Receive TV broadcasts in either MAIN or
SAP sound. MAIN sound: The normal program soundtrack
(either in mono or stereo). SAP sound: Listen to a second

information
• Depending on the number of caption services in the
signal being received, you will see information such as
1/2 or 1/4 displayed.
1/2 means “the first of two services”.
Example:
If a program has three services (Digital CC(ENG), CC1
and Text1), the closed caption display will toggle in this
sequence:
DISPLAY
Displays channel information being viewed.
Press DISPLAY.
Closed Captions and Digital Closed Captions
Your TV is equipped with an internal Closed Caption
decoder. It allows you to view conversations, narration
and sound effects as subtitles on your TV. Closed
Captions are available on some TV programs and on
some VHS home video tapes at the discretion of the
program provider.
1/3 ENG
2/3 CC1
3/3 Text1
Off
• The CC button keeps a record of the last service
selected in its memory.
If the last closed caption mode (e.g. 1/3ENG) you
selected is not available for the next program, or on
another channel, the closed caption service that is
available is automatically selected, and this service
appears in parentheses, e.g. “1/3(CC1)”.
Closed Caption services that appear in parentheses will
not be stored in the CC button's memory as your last
selected service. Only services that you have selected
with the CC button are stored.
Digital Closed Caption service is a new caption service
available only on digital TV programs (also at the
discretion of the service provider). It is a more flexible
system than the original Closed Caption system,
because it allows for a variety of caption sizes and font
styles. When the Digital Closed Caption service is in
use, it will be indicated by the appearance of a 3-letter
abbreviation that also indicates the language of the
Digital Closed Captions: ENG (English), SPA (Spanish),
FRA (French) or other language codes.
Examples:
In a case where there are two closed caption
services provided (for instance, Digital CC(ENG)
and CC1), and Digital CC(ENG) is displayed as your
current selection, if Digital CC(ENG) is not broadcast
for the next program, the other closed caption
service, CC1, will be displayed in parentheses.
A closed caption service appears in parentheses
because the service you selected is not available
and a different service is displayed on your screen.
“1/1(CC1)” is displayed instead of “1/2/ENG”.
Not all programs and VHS videotapes offer closed
captions. Please look for the “N” symbol to ensure
that captions will be shown.
In the Closed Caption system, there can be more than
one caption service provided. Each is identified by its
own number. The “CC1” and “CC2” services display
subtitles of TV programs superimposed over the
program's picture.
• When “Power Saving” is set to “Standard” or “Advanced”,
the Power Saving leaf icon appears on the channel
information window. See page 19 for details of Power
Saving settings.
• See page 24 for detailed closed caption settings.
• When the program contains no closed caption, “--” displays
in the closed caption information.
• If the language code, e.g. “ENG”, is not found on Digital TV
programs, “--” will be shown.
• Four kinds of closed caption service (CC1, CC2, Text1,
Text2) are potentially available, but a broadcast may contain
none or only some of these services at the discretion of the
program provider.
In the Closed Caption system, the “Text1” or “Text2”
services display text that is unrelated to the program
being viewed (e.g., weather or news). These services
are also superimposed over the program currently
being viewed.

be rated, the structure developed takes into consideration
other program content like language, nudity, sexuality and
mature themes.

When external equipment is connected via an HDMI cable, you may need to
configure the audio to be output through the HDMI cable.
When audio is not output from external equipment connected to the INPUT 4 or
INPUT 6 terminal, check the "PC Audio Select" setting. Page 24
Even when external equipment is connected using an HDMI-certified cable, an audio
cable connection may be required depending on the type of equipment and the
media being played back. In this case, in addition to connecting an HDMI-certified
cable to the INPUT 6 (HDMI) terminal, connect an audio cable to the AUDIO terminal
and set "PC Audio Select" to "Input 6 (HDMI)". Page 24
When connecting a PC via an HDMI-certified cable, check the following:
- Is the audio output of the PC configured correctly? Check the audio output
settings and output audio format in Sound Properties on the PC.
Only PCM format audio can be output. Compressed audio (with a sampling rate of
32kHz, 44.1kHz, or 48kHz) and DTS format audio cannot be output.
- Depending on the board, only video signals may be output. In this case, in addition
to connecting an HDMI-certified cable to the INPUT 6 (HDMI) terminal, connect an
audio cable to the AUDIO terminal and set "PC Audio Select" to "Input 6 (HDMI)".
Page 24
If you are using an HDMI-DVI conversion cable to connect external equipment to the
TV, check the following:
- Is an audio cable connected? The HDMI-DVI conversion cable is for video only.
Connect a Ø 3.5 mm stereo mini jack cable to listen to the audio.
- Is INPUT 6 being used? When the TV is connected to another HDMI terminal, the
audio and video are not output together even if a Ø 3.5 mm stereo mini jack cable
is connected to the shared AUDIO terminal for INPUT 4 and INPUT 6.
- Is "Input 4 (PC)" selected in "PC Audio Select"? Page 24

• 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.

Error code
Possible Solution
• Failed to receive broadcast.
E202
• Check the antenna cable. Check that the antenna is correctly
setup.
• No broadcast now.
E203
• Check the broadcast time in the program guide.
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 Liquid Crystal panel to malfunction.
Storage temperature: f4°F to e140°F (f20°C to e60°C)
