Press the OPTIONS button, then select [Picture Adjustments] to make adjustments.
Select [Reset] in [Picture Adjustments].
If you set [Power Saving] to [Low] or [High], black level will be enhanced.
Blurry picture or poor color.
Transporting the TV from a cold to a warm location or a sudden change in room temperature may
cause moisture condensation, resulting in a blurry picture or poor color. Turn off your TV and wait a
few hours before powering on again.
Screen format/wide mode changes automatically.
When changing the channel or video input, if [4:3 Default] in [Screen] is not set to [Off], the current
[Wide Mode] setting is automatically replaced with the [4:3 Default] setting. To lock in [Wide Mode]
selected with the WIDE button on the remote control, set [4:3 Default] to [Off].
Check the [Auto Wide] setting in [Screen].
Suddenly the picture becomes small.
The picture becomes smaller during commercials due to the method used by a provider to
broadcast content. When HD content channels switch to SD content (commercials), the picture may
be small with a black border.
[Auto Wide] will not expand the picture while the content switches, since the content information is
regulated by the channel signal provider. You can manually change the [Wide Mode] setting if
desired, which will remain in effect until you change the channel/input or manually change the [Wide
Mode] setting again.
Black box on screen.
A text option is selected although no text is available. To deactivate this feature, set [CC Display] to
[Off]. If you are trying to select closed captioning, select [CC1] instead of [Text1] - [Text4] (options
may not be available depending on your region/country).
Black bands appear at the edges of the screen.
Some wide screen programs are filmed in aspect ratios that are greater than 16:9 (this is especially
common with theatrical releases). Your TV will show these programs with black bands at the top
and bottom of the screen. For more details, check the documentation that came with your DVD (or
contact your program provider).
Programs in 4:3 aspect ratio will have bands on the left and right sides of the screen.
Programs broadcasted in HD formats (720p and 1080i) with 4:3 content will commonly have black
bands on the left and right sides of the screen which are added by the broadcaster.
[Auto Wide] will not expand the picture when the black bands on the sides of the screen are added
by the broadcaster. You can manually set [Wide Mode] to [Wide Zoom] or [Zoom], which will remain
in effect until you change the channel/input or manually change the [Wide Mode] setting again.
TV screen feels warm.
Due to the thin profile of this television, the heat generated by the LCD panel backlight and
supporting electronics will be more noticeable. This is normal operation and not a cause for concern.

Sometimes video streaming quality is poor when using the wireless
LAN.
The wireless network connection quality varies depending on the distance or obstacles (e.g. wall)
between the TV/USB Wireless LAN Adapter and the wireless router (access point), environment
interference, and quality of the wireless router (access point). If using USB Wireless LAN Adapter, it
is suggested to use a wireless router (access point) supporting 5GHz operation for video streaming
and place it closer to the USB Wireless LAN Adapter (not applicable for models with built-in wireless
LAN device).
Wireless LAN connection fails or radio reception conditions are poor.
Check the installation location of the TV and wireless router (access point). Signal condition may be
affected for the following reasons.
- Other wireless devices, microwaves, fluorescent lights, etc., are placed nearby.
- There are floors or walls between the wireless router (access point) and TV.
If the problem persists even after checking the above, try making a wired LAN connection.
When using a USB Wireless LAN Adapter, move it to avoid signal interference by using an
extension cable with base unit (optional accessory).
The TV cannot connect with your wireless router (or access point)
at 5GHz.
Use the optional USB Wireless LAN Adapter to connect with your wireless router (or access point)
at 5GHz. Then, set [Standby for Wi-Fi Direct] to [Off]. Press the HOME button, then select
[Settings] →
[Network] → [Standby for Wi-Fi Direct] → [Off].
