Installation Preparation
Please read this user manual carefully before installing your VIZIO HDTV.
The power consumption of the High Definition TV is about 220W, please use the power cord designated
for TV. When an extension cord is required, use one with the correct power rating. The cord must be
grounded and the grounding feature must not be defeated.

please see below ‘Preparing Your PLASMA HDTV for Wall Mounting’ for additional information. Avoid
installing the TV in places with high humidity, dust or smoke so as not to shorten the service life of the

poor ventilation and excessive component damage.
VIZIO offers professional installation services. Please contact VIZIO for more information on these

Description
White
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) - It is the
first and only industry-supported, uncompressed, alldigital audio/video interface. HDMI provides an
interface between any audio/video source, such as a
set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver and an
audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital
television (DTV), over a single cable.
Black
DTV Coaxial RF. When used for MPEG2 encoded bit
streams from ATSC broadcast programming, this
input takes advantage of the High Definition content.
-------------------------------------TV Coaxial RF. This is the connection for standard
NTSC TV using antenna or cable.
Blue
RGB PC (VGA) – This video input has separate red,
green and blue color components. The signal carries
horizontal and vertical sync information on the green
signal. This is most commonly used for PC input.
Green
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.
Yellow
and
Red
Composite (AV) - The complete video signal is
carried through this single (yellow) pin connector.
This is the most commonly used video connection.
S-Video (AV) - 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.
Note: For more info refer to the Quick Start Guide

You can switch viewing modes using the remote control; please see instructions in page 33.
4.17.1 Viewing Modes
Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3).
Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom.
When watching a standard definition 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source)
the picture will fill the screen but will be stretched horizontally; people
will look fatter than they are.
.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a widescreen broadcast or in this mode, the 16:9
Aspect Ratio (1.78:1 source) display image is shrunk horizontally on the

Your VIZIO remote uses codes 11758 and 10178 to work your PLASMA HDTV. To use a cable or
satellite remote to work the PLASMA HDTV, refer to your cable or satellite remote user guide for more
information on how to program the remote. If your cable or satellite remote uses a 5-digit code (like most
Direct TV units), first try 11758 and then, if that does not work, 10178. If your cable or satellite remote
uses a 4-digit code, try 1758 and then 0178 as an alternative. If your cable or satellite remote uses a 3digit code (Echostar or Dish Network for example), use code 627.
Note: Some buttons may not function as expected on your cable or satellite remote. Typically power,
volume and mute will work.

There appears to be image
quality issues.
For best image quality, view HD wide screen programs when possible. If HD
content is not available view “Standard Definition” from a digital source. Standard,
analog TV will always be noticeably inferior to HD because your digital flat panel TV
has video that is many times better than old TV’s and so you can see interference
and deficiencies you did not know you had.
You cannot see a picture.
Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a grounded electrical outlet.
Make sure that the power button is turned on.
Make sure that the selected input source is connected to a working input source.
If your TV is connected to your computer in RGB or HDMI mode, press any key on
your keyboard to “wake” your computer.
You see a distorted picture or
hear unusual sound.
You may be getting interference from electrical appliances, cars, motorcycles, or
fluorescent lights. If you have not mounted it on the wall, try moving your TV to
another location to see if this is the cause of the problem.
The picture has abnormal
patterns.
Make sure that the input source cable is attached securely and correctly to the side
of your TV.
Make sure that the video input source is within the range of your TV. Compare the
video input source’s specifications with your TV specifications.

If you are using TV, AV-C, AV-S or Component with 480i input, follow steps on page
33 on how to set the WIDE screen modes.
You can see a picture but you
cannot hear sound.
Make sure that the volume is not turned down.
Make sure that the sound is not muted.
Make sure that your audio input source cables are connected securely and correctly.
The TV has pixels that are
always dark or colored.
Your PLASMA HDTV is manufactured using an extremely high level of precision
technology; however, sometimes some pixels of your PLASMA HDTV may not
display. Pixel defects within industry specifications are inherent to this type of
product and do not constitute a defective product.
You see “noise” or “trash” on
the screen.
When your PLASMA HDTV’s digital capabilities exceed a digital broadcast signal,
the signal is up-converted (increased) to match your TV’s display capabilities. Upconverting can cause noise or trash.
You switch to a different input
and the volume changes.
The TV remembers the volume level from the last time you adjusted it. If the sound
level is higher or lower from another source, then the loudness will change.
You switch to a different input
and the screen size changes.
The TV remembers the viewing mode from the last time you used a particular input

Tips for High-Definition Users.
The PLASMA HDTV is an ideal platform for viewing High Definition Content.
Best Image Quality will be achieved by the HDMI Input, then YPbPr, then RGB.
However, due to variances in broadcast practices, it is possible some image
distortions can occur.
Tips for Letterbox Content
Users.
Letterboxed (or “Widescreen”) versions of DVD movies are most commonly
formatted for standard 4:3 Televisions. The PLASMA HDTV has the capability of
expanding this content so the entire screen is filled at the expense of image
accuracy. To use this function follow the instructions given in page 33.

6.2 Glossary – Standard Definitions
Analog TV: Today’s TV system using radio frequency waves to transmit and display pictures and sound.
Aspect Ratio (4:3): Traditional TV “aspect ratio”, that is, the screen’s width as compared to its height.
For example, a “32 inch TV screen” would be 25 inches wide and 19 inches tall.
Aspect Ratio (16:9): “Wide screen TV” aspect ratio which is more like a movie screen than a traditional
TV. For example, a “32 inch TV screen” would be 28 inches wide and 16 inches tall.
Digital TV (DTV): Television delivered and displayed using radio frequency waves that contain
information that is digitally encoded for improved quality and efficiency.
Enhanced Definition TV (EDTV): A better digital television transmission than SDTV with at least 480P,
in a 16:9 or 4:3 display and Dolby digital surround sound. 480P is the quality used by most DVD players.
EDTV provides 300-400,000 pixels.
HDTV Monitor (sometimes called HDTV Ready): A set that can display HDTV programming if you have
a separate HDTV tuner, HD Cable Set-Top Box or HD Satellite Set-Top-Box Receiver.
HDTV Tuner (also decoder, receiver, set-top box): A device capable of receiving and outputting HDTV
signals for display. It may be stand-alone or integrated in the set.
High-Definition Television (HDTV): The best quality picture, wide screen (16:9) display with at least 720
progressively scanned lines (720P) or 1080 interlaced lines (1080i) and Dolby digital surround sound.
HDTV provides 900,000-2.1 million pixels.
Integrated HDTV: An HDTV that has the digital tuner built into the set. It does not need a separate settop box to receive over-the-air DTV signals.
Interlace Scan: A way to scan vertical lines onto a TV picture by scanning all the odd lines first, then
filling the in the even lines (this happens instantaneously).
Plug-and-Play or Digital Cable Ready: A DTV or other device for digital cable consumers that plugs
directly into the cable jack and does not require a separate set-top box. Plug-and-Play TV owners must
obtain a CableCARD from their cable company in order to view scrambled programming services.
Progressive Scan: A way to scan vertical lines onto a TV picture by scanning all the lines consecutively
(progressively).
Standard Definition TV (SDTV): Basic digital television transmission that may be displayed with fewer
than 480 progressively scanned lines (480P) in 16:9 or 4:3 format. 480 interlaced (480i) is the quality of
today’s analog TV system.
Source: Buying a Digital Television, CEA, HDTV Guide, 2005
Note: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)
and the Consumer Electronics Retailers Coalition (CERC) have made a new tip sheet available for digital
television (DTV) retailers to reproduce and distribute to consumers on the sales floor. The file may be
downloaded online at www.dtv.gov. While you’re there, check out the other useful information in the FCC
