CHILD SAFETY
It makes a difference how and where you use
your flat panel display
As you enjoy your new product, keep these
safety tips in mind
The issue
The home theater entertainment experience is a growing trend, and larger TVs are popular
purchases. However, TVs are not always supported on the proper stands or installed
according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. We and the consumer electronics
industry are committed to making home entertainment enjoyable and safe.
TVs that are inappropriately placed on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks, speakers,
chests, or carts may fall over and cause injury.
Tune into safety
•
•
•
•
•
•
One size of TV stand does not fit all. Use only a TV stand
rated for the weight of your TV.
Carefully read and understand all enclosed instructions for
proper use of this product.
Don’t let children climb on or play with entertainment system
furniture and TVs.
Don’t place TVs on furniture that can easily be used as
steps, such as a crate or chest of drawers.
Remember that children can become excited while watching
a program, especially on a “larger-than-life” TV. Make sure
that you place or install the TV where it cannot be pushed,
pulled over, or knocked down.
Make sure that you route all cords and cables so that they
cannot be pulled or grabbed by curious children.
Wall mounting
If you decide to wall mount your TV, always remember:
•
One size of wall mount does not fit all. Use only a wall mount rated for the weight of your
TV and that has been recommended by this TV manufacturer, listed in this manual, or
otherwise listed by an independent laboratory as suitable for your TV.
•
Follow all instructions supplied by the TV and wall mount manufacturers.
•
If you have any doubts about your ability to safely wall mount your TV, get help from a
professional installer.
•
Make sure that the wall where you are mounting the TV is
appropriate. Some wall mounts are not designed to be mounted
to walls backed with steel studs or cinder blocks. If you are
unsure, ask a professional installer.
•
TVs can be heavy. At least two people are required for safe wall mount installation.

Read these instructions.
Keep these instructions.
Heed all warnings.
Follow all instructions.
Do not use this apparatus near water.
Clean only with a dry cloth.
Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with
the manufacturer's instructions.
Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat
registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that
produce heat.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or
grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one
wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two blades and
a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are
provided for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into
your outlet, consult an electrician for 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 a 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 S3125A
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 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.
The wall plug is the disconnecting device. The plug must remain
readily operable.
An apparatus with a three-prong, grounding-type plug is a Class I
apparatus, which needs to be grounded to prevent possible
electric shock. Make sure that you connect this Class I television
to a grounding-type, three-prong outlet.
Remote control batteries should not be exposed to excessive heat
such as sunshine, fire, or the like.
Important safety instructions
18 The apparatus should not be exposed to dripping or splashing,
and no objects filled with liquids, such as vases, should be placed
on the apparatus.
Warnings
Electric shock hazard
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not remove any cover or
expose the device to rain or moisture. No user-serviceable parts are
inside. Refer servicing to qualified service technicians.
Lightning
For added protection for your device receiver during a lightning storm,
or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the power outlet and disconnect any antenna or cable
system. This helps prevent property damage and personal injury from
lightning and power line surges.
Power lines
An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of
overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it
can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside
antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching
such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
Handling the LCD panel
• Your TV’s screen is made of glass. Do not drop your TV or hit, jolt,
or press hard against the LCD panel. If the screen breaks, be
careful of broken glass.
• If the LCD panel is broken, make absolutely sure that you do not
touch the liquid in the panel. This may cause skin inflammation.
• If the liquid gets in your mouth, immediately gargle, rinse, and
consult with your doctor. Also, if the liquid gets in your eyes or
touches your skin, consult with your doctor after rinsing for at
least 15 minutes or longer in clean water.
Replacement parts
When replacement parts are required, make sure that the service
technician uses replacement parts specified by the manufacturer that
have the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized
substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, personal injury, or other
hazards.
Safety check
After completing any service or repair to this device, ask the service
technician to perform routine safety checks to determine that your TV is
in correct operating condition.
Power source
Operate your TV only from the type of power source indicated on the
marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your
home, consult an electrician or your local power company.

Installing and removing the stand
DX-32L152A11
Cautions
Damage requiring service
Unplug this TV from the power outlet and refer servicing to qualified
service personnel under the following conditions:
• When the power supply cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
• If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into your TV.
• If your TV has been exposed to rain or water.
• If your TV does not operate normally by following the operating
instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the
operating instructions because incorrect adjustment of other
controls may result in damage and will often require extensive
work by a qualified technician to restore your TV to its normal
operation.
• If your TV has been dropped or damaged in any way.
• When your TV exhibits a distinct change in performance.
Outdoor antenna grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to your TV, make sure
that the antenna or cable system is grounded to provide some
protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article
810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70, provides
information with respect to correct grounding of the mast and
supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna
discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of the
antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode.

Condensation may also form during the summer if the TV is exposed to
the breeze from an air conditioner. In such cases, change the location of
the TV.
Mobile telephone warning
To avoid interference with your TV picture and sound, operating
problems, or even damage, keep your cordless and cellular telephones
away from the TV.
End of life directives
Your TV contains tin-lead solder and a fluorescent lamp containing a
small amount of mercury. Disposal of these materials may be regulated
for environmental reasons. Your TV also contains material that can be
recycled and reused. For disposal or recycling information, contact your
local authorities or the Electronic Industries Alliance at www.eia.org to
find a recycler in your area.
Non-active pixels
The LCD panel contains almost 3 million thin film transistors, which
provide exceptionally sharp video quality. Occasionally, a few
non-active pixels may appear on the screen as a fixed blue, green, or red
point. These non-active pixels do not adversely affect the performance
of your TV, and are not considered defects.
Accessories
Make sure the following accessories are included in the box with your
TV:
• Remote control
• Composite video and audio cable
• AAA batteries (2)
• Stand
• Quick Setup Guide

Note to CATV system installer
Article 820 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 40 provides
guidance for correct grounding. Specifically, it states that the cable
ground must be connected to the grounding system of the building as
close to the point of cable entry as practical.
Condensation
Moisture will form on the TV if the TV is brought from cool surroundings
into a warm room or if the temperature of the room rises suddenly.
When this happens, the TV's performance may be impaired. To prevent
this, let the TV stand in its new surroundings for about an hour before
switching it on, or make sure that the room temperature rises gradually.
Installing and removing the
stand
You must install your TV into the stand in order for it to stand upright on
a cabinet or other flat surface. If you intend to mount your TV on a wall
or other vertical surface, you must remove the stand column.
Warning: Before attampting assembly or removal of the stand, unplug
the AC power cord.
Cautions:
• Read these instructions carefully before you try to assemble the stand
or remove the stand column.
• Make sure that you handle the TV carefully when attempting to
assemble or remove the stand. If you are not sure of your ability to do
this, contact a professional installer or service technician. Dynex is
not responsible for any damages or injuries that occur because of
mishandling or incorrect assembly.
• Use a soft cushion or covering to prevent scratching or damage to the
TV screen or cabinet.
