location of the unit.
HOW TO HANDLE THE LCD PANEL
• Do not press hard or jolt the LCD panel. It may cause the LCD panel glass to break and injury may occur.
• If the LCD panel is broken, make absolutely sure that you do not touch the liquid in the panel. This may cause skin inflammation.
If the liquid gets in your mouth, immediately gargle and consult with your doctor. Also, if the liquid gets in your eyes or touches your
skin, consult with your doctor after rinsing for at least 15 minutes or longer in clean water.
Possible Adverse Effects on LCD Panel: If a fixed (non-moving) pattern remains on the LCD Panel for long periods of time, the image
can become permanently engrained in the LCD Panel and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. This type of damage is NOT
COVERED BY YOUR WARRANTY. Never leave your LCD Panel on for long periods of time while it is displaying the following formats or
images:
• Fixed Images, such as stock tickers, video game patterns, TV station logos, and websites.
• Special Formats that do not use the entire screen. For example, viewing letterbox style (16:9) media on a normal (4:3) display (black
bars at top and bottom of screen); or viewing normal style (4:3) media on a widescreen (16:9) display (black bars on left and right
sides of screen).
The following symptoms are not signs of malfunction but technical limitation. Therefore we disclaim any responsibility for
these symptoms.
• LCD Panels are manufactured using an extremely high level of precision technology, however sometimes parts of the screen may be
missing picture elements or have luminous spots.
This is not a sign of a malfunction.
• Do not install the LCD Panel near electronic equipment that produces electromagnetic waves. Some equipment placed too near this
unit may cause interference.
• Effect on infrared devices – There may be interference while using infrared devices such as infrared cordless headphones.

may appear on-screen. If this happens, set the CC Setting to
“CC Off”.
• When selecting Closed Captions, the captioning will appear
after approx. 10 seconds.
• Misspellings or unusual characters may occasionally appear
during Closed Captioning.
This is normal with Closed Captioning, especially with live
programs. This is because during live programs, captions are
also entered live. These transmissions do not allow time for
editing.
• When Captions are being displayed, on-screen displays, such
as volume may be seen but may interfere with Closed Captions.
• Some cable systems and copy protection systems may interfere
with the Closed Captioned signal.
• If using an indoor antenna or if TV reception is very poor, the
closed caption may not appear or may appear with strange
characters or misspelled words. In this case, adjust the antenna
for better reception or use an outdoor antenna.

Reception disturbances
Addition Information
IGNITION NOISE:
Black spots or horizontal streaks may appear, picture may flutter or drift. Usually caused by interference
from automobile ignition systems, neon lamps, electrical drills, and other electrical appliances.
GHOSTS:
Ghosts are caused by the television signal following two paths. One is the direct path and the other
is reflected from tall buildings, hills or some other objects. Changing the direction or position of the
antenna may improve reception. Ghosting may also be caused by defects in the antenna system such
as unshielded leads or connecting several sets to the same antenna without using multiple antenna
couplers.
SNOW:
If your receiver is located in the fringe area of a television station where the signal is weak, your
picture may be marred by the appearance of small dots. When the signal is extremely weak, it may be
necessary to install a special antenna to improve the picture.
RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE:
The interference produces moving ripples or diagonal streaks, and in some cases, causes loss of
contrast in the picture.
•
•
•
•
•
Keep the television away from Radio.
Adjust Radio antennas in order for the television not to receive interference.
The antenna cable of Radio should be kept away from the television.
Use a coaxial cable for antenna.
You can check if this television influences Radio receivers by turning off all other equipment other
than the television. If you find a problem receiving Radio when using the television, check the
instructions mentioned above.
BLOCK NOISE or FREEZE (DIGITAL INPUT):
Fuzzy blocks may appear in some area or the whole area of the screen. This is usually caused by
interference from automobile ignition systems, neon lamps, electrical drills, ghosting of the image and
lost or weak receiving signals.
NOTE:
• The TV set can generate sound distortion in external devices such as a radio. Please separate radio equipment from the TV set to a
considerable distance.

LIMITED WARRANTY:
Hitachi America, Ltd. warrants this Hitachi display product (the “Product”) in accordance with the following terms and conditions:
Limited Parts and Labor Warranty: The Product is warranted to be free from defects in materials and workmanship beginning on the date of purchase

found to be defective, Hitachi will repair or replace (at Hitachi’s option) defective parts at no charge, subject to the conditions of this Limited Warranty.
If the Purchaser rejects, refuses or otherwise does not accept Hitachi’s offer to repair or replace such defective parts under this Limited Warranty, this
Limited Warranty shall be void and of no further force or effect. This Limited Warranty extends to the Purchaser only and is not transferable, and such
Purchaser must provide a dated sales receipt his or her evidencing the purchase of the Product to qualify for parts or service under this Limited
Warranty. The original owner must notify Hitachi of a defect claim by calling 800-HITACHI during the applicable Limited Warranty period for this
Limited Warranty to be effective. This Limited Warranty is valid only in the U.S.A., Canada and Puerto Rico.
PARTS: The Limited Warranty period for parts is 1 year from the date of original purchase. During the Limited Warranty period for parts, Hitachi will
replace defective parts with new or rebuilt parts (at Hitachi’s option) at no charge for such parts. Any replacement part will be warranted for the
remainder of the original warranty period applicable to the part replaced. LABOR: The Limited Warranty period for labor is 1 year from the date of
original purchase. During the Limited Warranty period for labor, Hitachi will repair or replace (at Hitachi’s option) defective parts without charge for
labor. SERVICE LOCATION: In-home warranty service, which includes either in-home repair or free pick-up and delivery (at Hitachi’s option),
applies to all Hitachi products except: (i) 43-inch and smaller LCD Flat Panel Televisions; (ii) Products located outside the U.S.A., Canada or Puerto
Rico; and (iii) Products located more than seventy-five (75) driving miles from Hitachi’s nearest Authorized Service Facility. If the foregoing clauses (i),
