• Never defeat the purpose of the earthing plug.
Ex. 220-240V AC, 50/60Hz
3) Never place the TV in an unstabilized location such
as on a shaky table, incline or location subject to
vibration.
The TV may drop or fall down which may cause injury or
damage.
4) Never block or cover the slots and openings in the

• When installing the TV against a wall, always keep
the TV at least 10 cm away from the wall.
• Never place the TV on a soft unstable surface, such
as a carpet, or a cushion.
The inside of this TV will overheat if the ventilation holes
are covered, blocked or sealed, which may result in a
fire.
5) Never place the TV near a heater or in direct
sunlight.
The surface of the cabinet or power cord may melt and
result in fire or electric shock.
Check!
About the fuse

replaced by a correctly rated and approved type and the
fuse cover must be refitted.
2) Never insert or remove the power plug with wet

on which antenna to use in your area.
Before connecting the antenna cable, turn off all main power
switches.
Installing the remote control batteries

Insert two R03 (AAA) batteries matching the –/+ polarities of
the battery to the –/+ marks inside the battery compartment.

Connecting an HDMI or a DVI device
The HDMI input on your TV receives digital audio and
uncompressed digital video from an HDMI device or
uncompressed digital video from a DVI device.
This input is designed to accept HDCP program material in
digital from EIA/CEA-861/861B compliant consumer
electronic devices (such as a set top box or DVD player with
HDMI or DVI output).
The HDMI input is designed for best performance with 1080i
(50 Hz/60 Hz) high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p (50 Hz/60 Hz
(60Hz: except for the E-EDID)) and VGA signals.
• HDMI: High-Definition Multimedia Interface
• DVI: Digital Video Interface
• HDCP: High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection
• EIA/CEA-861/861B compliance covers the transmission of
uncompressed digital video with high-bandwidth digital
content protection, which is being standardized for
reception of high-definition video signals. Because this is an
evolving technology, it is possible that some devices may
not operate properly with the TV.
• E-EDID: Enhanced-Extended Display Identification
• VGA: VESA 640 5 480 @ 60 Hz
• L-PCM: Linear-Pulse Code Modulation
For proper operation, it is recommended that you use a short
HDMI cable.
HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.
