CHILD SAFETY:
It Makes A Difference How and Where You Use Your Flat Panel Display
Congratulations on your purchase! As you enjoy your new product, please keep these safety tips in mind:
THE ISSUE
• The home theater entertainment experience is a growing trend and larger flat panel displays
are popular purchases. However, flat panel displays are not always supported on the proper
stands or installed according to the manufacturer's recommendations.
• Flat panel displays that are inappropriately situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks,
speakers, chests or carts may fall over and cause injury.
THIS MANUFACTURER CARES!
• The consumer electronics industry is committed to making home entertainment enjoyable
and safe.
TUNE INTO SAFETY
• One size does NOT fit all. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for the safe installation
and use of your flat panel display.
• Carefully read and understand all enclosed instructions for proper use of this product.
• Don't allow children to climb on or play with furniture and television sets.
• Don't place flat panel displays on furniture that can easily be used as steps, such as a chest
of drawers.
• Remember that children can become excited while watching a program, especially on a
"larger than life" flat panel display. Care should be taken to place or install the display where it
cannot be pushed, pulled over, or knocked down.
• Care should be taken to route all cords and cables connected to the flat panel display so that
they cannot be pulled or grabbed by curious children.
WALL MOUNTING: IF YOU DECIDE TO WALL MOUNT YOUR FLAT PANEL DISPLAY, ALWAYS:
• Use a mount that has been recommended by the display manufacturer and/or listed by an independent laboratory (such
as UL, CSA, ETL).
• Follow all instructions supplied by the display and wall mount manufacturers.
• If you have any doubts about your ability to safely install your flat panel display, contact your retailer about professional
installation.
• Make sure that the wall where you are mounting the display is appropriate. Some wall mounts are not designed to be
mounted to walls with steel studs or old cinder block construction. If you are unsure, contact a professional installer.
• A minimum of two people are required for installation. Flat panel displays can be heavy.

Antennas
To enjoy a clearer picture, use an outdoor antenna. The following is a brief explanation of the types of connections
that are used for a coaxial cable. If your outdoor antenna uses a 75-ohm coaxial cable with an F-type connector,
plug it into the antenna terminal at the rear of the 1V set.
----m
IF-type connector
1.A 75-ohm system is generally a round cable with F-type connector
that can easily be attached to a terminal without tools (Commercially
available).
2. A 300-ohm system is a flat "twin-lead" cable that can be attached
to a 75-ohm terminal through a 300/75-ohm adapter (Commercially
available).

information
• Depending on the number of caption services in the
signal being received, you will see information such as

1/2 means "the first of two services".
Example:
If a program has three services (Digital CC(ENG), CC1
and Text1), the closed caption display will toggle in this
sequence:
Digital Closed Caption service is a new caption service
available only on digital TV programs (also at the
discretion of the service provider). It is a more flexible
system than the original Closed Caption system,
because it allows for a variety of caption sizes and font
styles. When the Digital Closed Caption service is in
use, it will be indicated by the appearance of a 3-letter
abbreviation that also indicates the language of the
Digital Closed Captions: ENG (English), SPA (Spanish),
FRA (French) or other language codes.

t
,
• The CC button keeps a record of the last service
selected in its memory.
If the last closed caption mode (e.g. 1/3 ENG) you
selected is not available for the next program, or on
another channel, the closed caption service that is
available is automatically selected, and this service
appears in parentheses, e.g. "1/3(CC1)".
Closed Caption services that appear in parentheses
will not be stored in the CC button's memory as your
last selected service. Only services that you have
selected with the CC button are stored.
Not all programs and VHS videotapes offer closed
captions. Please look for the "[GGr symbol to ensure
that captions will be shown.
In the Closed Caption system, there can be more than
one caption service provided. Each is identified by its
own number. The "CC1" and "CC2" services display
subtitles of TV programs superimposed over the
program's picture.
Examples:
In a case where there are two closed caption
services provided (for instance, Digital CC(ENG)
and CC1), and Digital CC(ENG) is displayed
as your current selection, if Digital CC(ENG) is
not broadcast for the next program, the other
closed caption service, CC1, will be displayed in
parentheses.
A closed caption service appears in parentheses
because the service you selected is not available
and a different service is displayed on your screen.
"1/1(CC1)" is displayed instead of "1/2/ENG".
In the Closed Caption system, the 'Text1" or "Text2"
services display text that is unrelated to the program
being viewed (e.g., weather or news). These services
are also superimposed over the program currently
being viewed.

Is the volume too low?" Page 16
Is "Variable" selected in "Output Select"? .. Page 29
Have you pressed MUTE on the remote control unit?" Page 16
Check the audio output of the connected external equipment. Is the volume too
low or muted?
When external equipment is connected via an HOMI cable, you may need to
configure the audio to be output through the HOMI cable.
When audio is not output from external equipment connected to the INPUT 4 or
INPUT 6 terminal, check the "PC Audio Select" setting." Page 40
Even when external equipment is connected using an HOMI-certified cable, an
audio cable connection may be required depending on the type of equipment and
the media being played back. In this case, in addition to connecting an HOMIcertified cable to the INPUT 6 (HOMI) terminal, connect un audio cable to the
AUDIO terminal and set "PC Audio Select" to "Input 6 (HOM!)" . .. Page 40
When connecting a PC via an HOMI-certified cable, check the following:
- Is the audio output of the PC configured correctly? Check the audio output
settings and output audio format in Sound Properties on the PC.
Only PCM format audio can be output. Compressed audio (with a sampling rate
of 32kHz, 44.1 kHz, or 48kHz) and OTS format audio cannot be output.
- Depending on the board, only video signals may be output. In this case, in
addition to connecting an HOMI-certified cable to the INPUT 6 (HOM!) terminal,
connect an audio cable to the AUDIO terminal and set "PC Audio Select" to "Input
6 (HOM I)" . .. Page 40
If you are using an HOMI-OVI conversion cable to connect external equipment to
the lV, check the following:
- Is an audio cable connected? The HOMI-OVI conversion cable is for video only.
Connect a 0 3.5 mm stereo mini jack cable to listen to the audio.
- Is INPUT 6 being used? When the lV is connected to another HOMI terminal, the
audio and video are not output together even if a 0 3.5 mm stereo mini jack cable
is connected to the shared AUDIO terminal for INPUT 4 and INPUT 6.
- Is "Input 4 (PC)" selected in "PC Audio Select"? .. Page 40

Cautions regarding use in high and low temperature environments
• When the unit is used in a low ternperature space (e.g. room, office). the picture may leave trails or appear slightly delayed.
This is not a malfunction, and the unit will recover when the temperature returns to normal.
• Do not leave the unit in a hot or cold location. Also, do not leave the unit in a location exposed to direct sunlight or near a
heater, as this may cause the cabinet to deform and the Liquid Crystal panel to malfunction.
