Important Safety Instructions
Your HDTV is designed and manufactured to operate within defined design limits, and misuse
may result in electric shock or fire. To prevent your HDTV from being damaged, the following
rules should be observed for the installation, use, and maintenance of your HDTV. Read the
following safety instructions before operating your HDTV. Keep these instructions in a safe place
for future reference.

To reduce the risk of electric shock or component damage, switch off the power before connecting other components to
your HDTV.
Unplug the power cord before cleaning your HDTV. A damp cloth is sufficient for cleaning your HDTV. Do not use a liquid
or a spray cleaner for cleaning your HDTV. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
Always use the accessories recommended by the manufacturer to insure compatibility.
When moving your HDTV from an area of low temperature to an area of high temperature, condensation may form in the
housing. Wait before turning on your HDTV to avoid causing fire, electric shock, or component damage.
Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified by manufacturer or sold with your HDTV. When a cart is
used, use caution when moving the cart/HDTV combination to avoid injury from tip-over. Do not place your HDTV on an
unstable cart, stand, or table. If your HDTV falls, it can injure a person and cause serious damage to your HDTV. Use only
a cart or stand recommended by the manufacturer or sold with your HDTV.
A distance of at least 3 feet should be maintained between your HDTV and any heat source, such as a radiator, heater,
oven, amplifier etc. Do not install your HDTV close to smoke. Operating your HDTV close to smoke or moisture may
cause fire or electric shock.
Slots and openings in the back and bottom of the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of your
HDTV and to protect it from overheating, be sure these openings are not blocked or covered. Do not place your HDTV in
a bookcase or cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
Never push any object into the slots and openings on your HDTV cabinet. Do not place any objects on the top of your
HDTV. Doing so could short circuit parts causing a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquids on your HDTV.
Your HDTV should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the label. If you are not sure of the type of
power supplied to your home, consult your dealer or local power company.
Do not apply pressure or throw objects at your HDTV. This may compromise the integrity of the display. The
manufacturer’s warranty does not cover user abuse or improper installations.
The power cord must be replaced when using different voltage than the voltage specified. For more information, contact
your dealer.
Your HDTV is equipped with a three-pronged grounded plug (a plug with a third grounding pin). This plug will fit only
into a grounded power outlet. This is a safety feature. If your outlet does not accommodate the three-pronged, have an
electrician install the correct outlet, or use an adapter to ground your HDTV safely.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounded plug.
When connected to a power outlet, power is always flowing into your HDTV. To totally disconnect
power, unplug the power cord.
!
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol within an equilateral triangle is
intended to alert the user to the presence of un-isolated, dangerous
voltage within the inside of your HDTV that may be of sufficient
magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
!
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the
user to the presence of important operating and servicing instructions in the
literature accompanying your HDTV.
Do not overload power strips and extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
The wall socket should be installed near your HDTV and easily accessible.
Only power of the marked voltage can be used for your HDTV. Any other voltage than the specified voltage may cause
fire or electric shock
Do not touch the power cord during lightning. To avoid electric shock, avoid handling the power cord during electrical
storms.
Unplug your HDTV during a lightning storm or when it will not be used for long period of time. This will protect your HDTV
from damage due to power surges.
Do not attempt to repair or service your HDTV yourself. Opening or removing the back cover may expose you to high
voltages, electric shock, and other hazards. If repair is required, contact your dealer and refer all servicing to qualified
service personnel.
Keep your HDTV away from moisture. Do not expose your HDTV to rain or moisture. If water penetrates into your HDTV,
unplug the power cord and contact your dealer. Continuous use in this case may result in fire or electric shock.
Do not use your HDTV if any abnormality occurs. If any smoke or odor becomes apparent, unplug the power cord and
contact your dealer immediately. Do not try to repair your HDTV yourself.
Avoid using dropped or damaged appliances. If your HDTV is dropped and the housing is damaged, the internal
components may function abnormally. Unplug the power cord immediately and contact your dealer for repair. Continued
use of your HDTV may cause fire or electric shock.

Do not install your HDTV in an area with heavy dust or high humidity. Operating your HDTV in environments with heavy
dust or high humidity may cause fire or electric shock.
Follow instructions for moving your HDTV. Ensure that the power cord and any other cables are unplugged before moving
your HDTV.
When unplugging your HDTV, hold the power plug, not the cord. Pulling on the power cord may damage the wires inside
the cord and cause fire or electric shock. When your HDTV will not be used for an extended period of time, unplug the
power cord.
To reduce risk of electric shock, do not touch the connector with wet hands.
Insert batteries in accordance with instructions. Incorrect polarities may cause the batteries to leak which can damage the
remote control or injure the operator.

Television Antenna Connection Protection
External Television Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna/satellite dish or cable system is connected to your HDTV, make sure that the
antenna or cable system is electrically grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges and
static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPSA 70, provides information with regard to proper
grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge
unit, size of the grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements of the grounding electrode.
Lightning Protection
For added protection of your HDTV during a lightning storm or when it is left unattended or unused for
long periods of time, unplug your HDTV from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system.
Power Lines
Do not locate the antenna near overhead light or power circuits, or where it could fall into such power
lines or circuits.
Remember, the screen of the coaxial cable is intended to be connected to earth in the building
installation.
FCC Bulletin for New TV Owners
After February 17, 2009, a television receiver with only an analog broadcast tuner will require a
converter box to receive full power over-the-air broadcasts with an antenna because of the
Nation's transition to digital broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before to
receive low power, Class A or translator television stations and with cable and satellite TV
services, gaming consoles, VCRs, DVD players, and similar products.
Information about the DTV transition is available from http://www.DTV.gov or this manufacturer at
877 MY VIZIO (877-698-4946), and from http://www.dtv2009.gov or 1-888-DTV-2009 for information
about subsidized coupons for digital-to-analog converter boxes.
Your HDTV comes with a built-in tuner capable of processing digital broadcasts, making it easier
for you to receive this type of signal without the need of an extra converter box.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface). HDMI is the
first and only industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital
audio/video interface. HDMI connects an AV device (such
as a set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver) to your HDTV
using one cable to carry both the audio and video.
DTV Coaxial RF. For digital programming, this input takes
advantage of high-definition content.
-----------------------------TV Coaxial RF. The connection for standard NTSC TV
using antenna or cable.
RGB PC (VGA). This is most commonly used connecting a
computer.
Component. The video signal is separated into three
signals, one containing the black-and-white information and
the other two containing the color information. This
enhancement over S-Video takes advantage of the superior
picture provided by progressive scan DVD players and
HDTV formats.
S-Video. The video signal is separated into two signals, one
containing the black-and-white information and the other
containing the color information. Separating the color in this
way avoids ‘cross color’ effects where closely spaced black
and white lines are erroneously displayed in color. It also
enables text to be displayed more sharply.
Composite. The video signal is carried through the yellow
jack and the audio is carried through the white and red
jacks. This is the most commonly used video connection.
NOTE: For more information refer to the Quick Start Guide.

Your HDTV is manufactured using an extremely high level of precision
technology. However, some pixels of your TV may not display. Pixel defects
within industry specifications are inherent to this type of product and do not
constitute a defective product.
When your HDTVs’ digital capabilities exceed a digital broadcast signal, the
signal is up-converted (increased) to match your HDTVs display capabilities.
Up-converting can cause noise or trash.
Your HDTV remembers the volume level from the last time you adjusted it.
If the sound level is higher or lower from another input, then the volume will
change.

VIZIO LIMITED PRODUCT WARRANTY
VIZIO provides a "ONE-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY" against manufacturing defects in materials and
workmanship to the original purchaser of a new VIZIO display purchased from an authorized VIZIO U.S.
reseller and used in the fifty (50) United States or Puerto Rico.
VIZIO's Responsibility
VIZIO displays purchased new from an authorized VIZIO U.S. reseller and that are used in the fifty (50)
United States or Puerto Rico are warranted to be free from manufacturing defects in materials and
workmanship for one (1) year from the date of the original retail purchase. If the display fails to conform to
this limited warranty, VIZIO will, at its option and sole discretion, repair or replace the display.
Labor
During the one-year limited warranty period, VIZIO will provide, when needed, service labor to repair a
manufacturing defect. Repairs required on displays which are thirty (30) inches and larger generally will
be made "on-site" where the display is installed. The determination for performing the on-site repair is
dependent upon the manufacturing defect and is at VIZIO's option and sole discretion. Repairs required
on displays which are less than thirty (30) inches generally will be performed at a VIZIO service center.
Parts
Repairs may be made with new or recertified parts, or the entire unit may be replaced with a new or
recertified unit, at VIZIO's option and sole discretion. Replacement parts or replacement units provided
under this limited warranty are warranted for the remaining portion of the original warranty period, or for
ninety (90) days from warranty service or replacement, whichever is later.

VIZIO reserves the right to assess all warranty claims and to determine if defects or damages are covered
by this limited warranty. In case of a claim that is not covered by this warranty, you will be contacted to
determine whether VIZIO should repair the damage for a fee or whether the product should be returned to
you as received by the service technician or service center.
Parts and service labor that are VIZIO's responsibility under this limited warranty will be provided without
charge. All other service is at the customer's expense. VIZIO reserves the right to charge the customer for
any service call for anything not covered by this limited warranty. Before you ask for warranty service,

RESULTING FROM ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING VIZIO'S NEGLIGENCE, ALLEGED
DAMAGE, OR DEFECTIVE GOODS, WHETHER SUCH DEFECTS ARE DISCOVERABLE OR LATENT,
SHALL IN NO EVENT EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE DISPLAY. VIZIO SHALL NOT BE
RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSS OF USE, COMMERCIAL LOSS, LOST REVENUE OR LOST PROFITS, OR
OTHER INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW
LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS OR THE EXCLUSION OR
