Antenna Installation Instructions
1. Outdoor Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the product be sure the antenna or cable system is
grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges, Article 810
of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 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, connection to
grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.
2. Lightning
For added protection for this product during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for
long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will
prevent damage to the product due to lightning and power-line surges. Do not disconnect the antenna or the
power cord during a heavy storm lighting may strike while you are holding the cable cord, causing serious
injury; turn off your LCD TV and wait for the weather to improve.
3. 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.

Mounting ViewSonic LCD TV to the wall
The LCD TV can be used in a free standing position or wall-mounted. Before installing the
product to the wall, please consider the following guidelines:
• Read the Important Safety Instructions, at the start of this manual.
• Do not install in a moist or wet environment. This equipment is intended for indoor use.
• Do not install near heat source, or strong magnetic fields.
• Use only ViewSonic approved wall-mounting brackets to support the LCD TV weight.
• Before attaching the wall mount plate to the back cover, ensure the product is working.
• If your LCD TV is already set up for free-standing operation, you need to first remove the
stand before mounting the device to the wall.
To attach the wall-mount bracket to LCD TV safely, please use the following guidelines:
• Disconnect the power and any other cables that might hinder moving the LCD TV.
• Set the LCD TV on a table or work surface, placing the screen face down on a towel or
woolen blanket to protect the screen surface from damage while installing plate.
• Through the matching screw holes in the bracket, there are 6 screws mounted on the
backside of the LCD TV. Loosen all 6 screws, and keep for future use.
• Install the wall mount plate to the LCD TV using screws NO LONGER than 10mm, as
longer screws found in universal (non-ViewSonic) wall mount kits may damage the
power supply causing the unit to fail. The wall-mount screw type is M6 x L10.
• Mount the wall mount bracket to the wall ensuring use of proper screws to support the
installation. Ensure there is at least 3cm of space surrounding any air-vents of your
LCD TV to allow adequate cooling during operation.
• Hang the LCD TV wall mount plate to the wall mount bracket, completing installation.
Enjoy your ViewSonic LCD TV!
