replacement of the obsolete outlet.
• Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched,
particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the
point where they exit from the apparatus.
• Only use attachments/accessories specified by the
manufacturer.
• Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket,
or table specified by the manufacturer, or sold

with the apparatus. When a cart is used, use
caution when moving the cart/apparatus
combination to avoid injury from tip-over.
• Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when
unused for long periods of time.
• Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing
is required when the apparatus has been damaged in
any way, such as when the power-supply cord or plug is
damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen
into the apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to
rain or moisture, does not operate normally or has been
dropped.
• Unplug the power cord before cleaning your TV.
• When moving your TV from an area of low temperature
to an area of high temperature, condensation may form
in the housing. Wait before turning on your TV to avoid
causing fire, electric shock, or component damage.
• Do not apply pressure or throw objects at your TV.
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.
• When connected to a power outlet, power is always
flowing into your TV. 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 TV that may be of sufficient magnitude to
constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
• Do not overload power strips and extension cords.
Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
• A distance of at least three feet should be maintained
between your TV and any heat source, such as a radiator,
heater, oven, amplifier etc. Do not install your TV close to
smoke. Operating your TV close to smoke or moisture may
cause fire or electric shock.
• The wall socket should be installed near your TV and
easily accessible.

ventilation is provided.
• Do not touch the power cord during lightning. To avoid
electric shock, avoid handling the power cord during
electrical storms.
• Never push any object into the slots and openings on
your TV cabinet. Do not place any objects on the top of
your TV. Doing so could short circuit parts causing a fire
or electric shock. Never spill liquids on your TV.
• Your TV 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.
• Only power of the marked voltage can be used for your
TV. Any other voltage than the specified voltage may
cause fire or electric shock.
• Unplug your TV during a lightning storm or when it will not
be used for long period of time. This will protect your TV
from damage due to power surges.
• Do not attempt to repair or service your TV 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

DTV Transition Advisory
The nationwide switch to digital television broadcasting was
complete on June 12, 2009. Analog-only television sets that
receive TV programming through an antenna now need a
converter box to continue to receive over-the-air TV. Watch your
local stations to find out when they will turn off their analog
signal and switch to digital-only 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.
For additional information, please contact the parties listed
below, as appropriate:

Your TV comes with a built-in tuner capable of
processing digital broadcasts. No extra converter
box is needed.

Television Antenna Connection Protection
If an outside antenna/satellite dish or cable system is to be
connected to the TV, 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.
Ground Clamp
Lightning Protection
For added protection of the TV during a lightning storm or when
it is left unattended or unused for long periods of time, unplug
the TV 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.

I see “noise” or static on the screen.
• When your TV’s digital capabilities exceed a
digital broadcast signal, the signal is up-converted
(improved) to match your TV’s display capabilities. This
up-converting can sometimes cause irregularities in the
image.
The image quality is not good.
• For the best image quality, view high-definition
programs using digital sources. Connect your devices
with HDMI cables.
• If you are using an antenna, the signal strength of the
channel may be low. Ensure your antenna is connected
securely to the TV and move the antenna around the
room or close to a window for the best signal.
• If you are using an antenna, the signal strength of the
channel may be low. Ensure your antenna is connected
securely to the TV and move the antenna around the
room or close to a window for the best signal.
The picture is distorted.
• Nearby electrical devices may be interfering with the
TV. Separate the TV from electrical appliances, cars, or
flourescent lights.
When I change input source, the volume changes.
• The TV remembers the volume level on each input
source. If the volume level on the new input source is
higher or lower than the level on the source you switch
from, the difference may be noticable.
• Ensure all cables are securely attached.
The display image does not cover the entire screen.
• If you are in RGB mode (computer), ensure that H-Size
and V-Position in the on-screen menu are set correctly.
• Use the Volume Up/Down buttons on the remote to
adjust the volume.
• If you are using TV, AV, or Component with 480i input,
press the WIDE button on the remote to change the
screen mode.
When I change input source, the display image changes size.
• The TV remembers the viewing mode on each input
source. If the viewing mode on the new input source
differs from the one on the input source you switch from,
the difference may be noticable.
The TV has pixels (dots) that are always dark or always lit.
• Your HDTV is precision-manufactured using an extremely
high level of technology. However, sometimes pixels may
not display correctly. These types of occurences are
inherent to this type of product and do not constitute a
defective product.
