children.
••Concerning the Power Cord
(Can differ by country):
Check the specification page of this owner’s
manual to be certain concerning current
requirements. Do not connect too many
devices to the same AC power outlet as this
could result in fire or electric shock. Do not
overload wall outlets. Overloaded wall outlets,
loose or damaged wall outlets, extension cords,
frayed power cords, or damaged or cracked
wire insulation are dangerous. Any of these
conditions could result in electric shock or fire.
Periodically examine the cord of your device,
and if its appearance indicates damage or
deterioration, unplug it, discontinue use of
the device, and have the cord replaced with
an exact replacement part by an authorized
servicer. Protect the power cord from physical or
mechanical abuse, such as being twisted, kinked,
pinched, closed in a door, or walked upon. Pay
particular attention to plugs, wall outlets, and
the point where the cord exits the device. Do not
move the TV with the power cord plugged in. Do
not use a damaged or loose power cord. Be sure
do grasp the plug when unplugging the power
cord. Do not pull on the power cord to unplug
the TV.
••Moving
Make sure the product is turned off, unplugged,
and all cables have been removed. It may take 2
or more people to carry larger TVs. Do not press
or put stress on the front panel of the TV.
••Ventilation
Install your TV where there is proper ventilation.
Do not install in a confined space such as a
bookcase. Do not cover the product with cloth or
other materials while plugged. Do not install in
excessively dusty places.
••Take care not to touch the ventilation openings.
When watching the TV for a long period, the
ventilation openings may become hot. This does
not affect the performance of the product or
cause defects in the product.
••If you smell smoke or other odors coming from
the TV, unplug the power cord and contact an
authorized service center.
••If water or another substance enters the
product (like an AC adapter, power cord, or TV),
disconnect the power cord and contact the
service center immediately. Otherwise, this may
result in fire or electric shock.
••Do not install this product on a wall if it could be
exposed to oil or oil mist. This may damage the
product and cause it to fall.
••Use only an authorized AC adapter and power
cord approved by LG Electronics.
Otherwise, this may result in fire, electric shock,
malfunction, or product deformation.
••Never disassemble the AC adapter or power
cord. This may result in fire or electric shock.
••Handle the adapter carefully to avoid dropping
or striking it. An impact could damage the
adapter.
ENGLISH
••To reduce the risk of fire or electrical shock,
do not expose this product to rain, moisture
or other liquids. Do not touch the TV with
wet hands. Do not install this product near

near the TV (e.g., a bug zapper).
This may result in product malfunction.
••Do not expose to dripping or splashing and
do not place objects filled with liquids, such as
vases, cups, etc. on or over the apparatus (e.g.,
on shelves above the unit).
••Grounding
(Except for devices which are not grounded.)
Ensure that you connect the earth ground wire
to prevent possible electric shock (i.e., a TV
with a three-prong grounded AC plug must
be connected to a three-prong grounded AC
outlet). If grounding methods are not possible,
have a qualified electrician install a separate
circuit breaker. Do not try to ground the unit by
connecting it to telephone wires, lightning rods,
or gas pipes.
••As long as this unit is connected to the AC wall
outlet, it is not disconnected from the AC power
source even if the unit is turned off.
••Do not attempt to modify this product in any
way without written authorization from LG
Electronics. Unauthorized modification could
void the user’s authority to operate this product.
••Outdoor Antenna Grounding
(Can differ by country):

Troubleshooting
••Cannot control the TV with the remote control.
-- Check if anything such as tape has been placed
over the receiver.
-- Check if there is any obstacle between the
product and the remote control.
-- Replace the batteries with new fresh ones.
••No image display and no sound is produced.
-- Check if the product is turned on.
-- Check if the power cord is connected to a wall
outlet.
-- Check if there is a problem in the wall outlet by
connecting other products.
••The TV turns off suddenly.
-- Check the power control settings.
The power supply may be interrupted.
-- Check if the Sleep Timer / Timer Power Off
feature is activated in the Timers settings.
-- If there is no signal while the TV is on, the TV
will turn off automatically after 15 minutes of
inactivity.
••Abnormal Display
-- If the TV feels cold to the touch, there may
be a small flicker when it is turned on. This is
normal; there is nothing wrong with TV. Some
minute dot defects may be visible on the
screen, appearing as tiny red, green, or blue
spots. However, they have no adverse effect on
the TV’s performance. Avoid touching the LCD
screen or holding your finger(s) against it for
long periods of time. Doing so may produce
some temporary distortion effects on the
screen.
-- This panel is an advanced product that contains
millions of pixels. In a very few cases, you could
see fine dots on the screen while you’re viewing
the TV. Those dots are deactivated pixels and
do not affect the performance and reliability
of the TV.
-- Displaying a still image for a prolonged period
of time may cause an image sticking. Avoid
displaying a fixed image on the TV screen for a
extended length of time.
••Generated Sound
-- Cracking noise A cracking noise that occurs
when watching or turning off the TV is
generated by plastic thermal contraction
due to temperature and humidity. This noise
is common for products where thermal
deformation is required.
-- Electrical circuit humming/panel buzzing
A low level noise is generated from a highspeed switching circuit, which supplies a
large amount of current to operate a product.
It varies depending upon the product.
This generated sound does not affect the
performance and reliability of the product.

CHILD SAFETY:
PROPER TELEVISION PLACEMENT MATTERS
THE CONSUMER ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY CARES
• Manufacturers, retailers and the rest of the consumer electronics industry are committed to
making home entertainment safe and enjoyable.
• As you enjoy your television, please note that all televisions – new and old- must be supported on

are inappropriately situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks, speakers, chests, carts, etc.,
may fall over, resulting in injury.
TUNE IN TO SAFETY
• ALWAYS follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the safe installation of your television.
• ALWAYS read and follow all instructions for proper use of your television.
• NEVER allow children to climb on or play on the television or the furniture on which the television
is placed.
• NEVER place the television on furniture that can easily be used as steps, such as a chest of
drawers.
• ALWAYS install the television where it cannot be pushed, pulled over or knocked down.
• ALWAYS route cords and cables connected to the television so that they cannot be tripped
over, pulled or grabbed.
WALL OR CEILING MOUNT YOUR TELEVISION
• ALWAYS contact your retailer about professional installation if you have any doubts about your
ability to safely mount your television.
• ALWAYS use a mount that has been recommended by the television manufacturer and has a
safety certification by an independent laboratory (such as UL, CSA, ETL).
• ALWAYS follow all instructions supplied by the television and mount manufacturers.
• ALWAYS make sure that the wall or ceiling where you are mounting the television is appropriate.
Some mounts are not designed to be mounted to walls and ceilings with steel studs or cinder
block construction. If you are unsure, contact a professional installer.
• Televisions can be heavy. A minimum of two people is required for a wall or ceiling mount
installation.
MOVING AN OLDER TELEVISION TO A NEW PLACE IN
YOUR HOME
• Many new television buyers move their older CRT televisions into a secondary room after the
purchase of a flat-panel television. Special care should be made in the placement of older CRT
televisions.
• ALWAYS place your older CRT television on furniture that is sturdy and appropriate for its size
and weight.
• NEVER place your older CRT television on a dresser where children may be tempted to use the
drawers to climb.
