Important Safety Precautions
• Cleaning — Unplug the AC cord
from the AC outlet before cleaning
the product. Use a soft damp cloth
to clean the product. Do not use
liquid cleaners, aerosol cleaners or
chemical cloth to clean it, as such
materials may damage the product.
• Water and moisture — Do not use
the product near water, such as
bathtub, washbasin, kitchen sink,
laundry tub, swimming pool and in a
wet basement.
• Do not place vases or any other
water-filled containers on this
product. The water may spill onto
the product causing fire or electric
shock.
• Stand — Do not place the product
on an unstable cart, stand, tripod
or table. Doing so can cause the
product to fall, resulting in serious
personal injuries as well as damage
to the product. Use only a cart,
stand, tripod, bracket or table
recommended by the manufacturer
or sold with the product. When
mounting the product on a wall, be
sure to follow the manufacturer's
instructions. Use only the mounting
hardware recommended by the
manufacturer.
• When relocating the product
placed on a cart, it must be moved
with utmost care. Sudden stops,
excessive force and uneven floor
surface can cause the product to fall
from the cart.
• Ventilation — The vents and other
openings in the cabinet are designed
for ventilation. Do not cover or block
these vents and openings since
insufficient ventilation can cause
overheating and/or shorten the life
of the product. Do not place the
product on a bed, sofa, rug or other
similar surface, since they can block
ventilation openings. This product is
not designed for built-in installation;
do not place the product in an
enclosed place such as a bookcase
or rack, unless proper ventilation
is provided or the manufacturer's
instructions are followed.
• The LCD panel used in this product
is made of glass. Therefore, it can
break when the product is struck
forcefully or with a sharp object. If
the LCD panel is broken, be careful
not to be injured by broken glass.
• Heat sources — Keep the product
away from heat sources such as
radiators, heaters, stoves and other
heat-generating products (including
amplifiers).
• To prevent fire, never place any type
of candle or naked flames on the
top or near the TV set.
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do
not place the AC power cord under
the TV set or other heavy items.
• Do not place heavy objects on this
product or stand on it. Doing so
could cause injury if the product
overturns. Take special care near
children and pets.
The LCD panel is a very high technology product
with 2,073,600 pixels, giving you fine picture details.
Due to the very large number of pixels, occasionally
a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen
as a fixed point of blue, green or red.
This is within product specifications and does not
constitute a fault.
Precautions when
transporting the TV
Be sure to always carry the TV
by two people holding it with two
hands — one hand on each side
of the TV.
• Do not display a still picture for a long time, as this could
cause an afterimage to remain.
• Install the product on the place where the AC cord can
be unplugged easily from the AC outlet, or from the AC
INPUT terminal on the rear of the product.
If a television is not positioned in a sufficiently stable
location, it can be potentially hazardous due to falling.
Many injuries, particularly to children, can be avoided by
taking simple precautions such as:
• Using cabinets or stands recommended by the
manufacturer of the television.
• Only using furniture that can safely support the
television.
• Ensuring the television is not overhanging the edge of
the supporting furniture.
• Not placing the television on tall furniture (for example,
cupboards or bookcases) without anchoring both the
furniture and the television to a suitable support.
• Not standing the televisions on cloth or other materials
placed between the television and supporting furniture.
• Educating children about the dangers of climbing on
furniture to reach the television or its controls.

AQUOS LINK
Controlling HDMI devices using AQUOS LINK
What is AQUOS LINK?
Using the HDMI CEC protocol, with AQUOS LINK you can interactively operate
compatible system devices (AV amplifier, DVD player/recorder, Blu-ray player/
recorder) using a single remote control unit.
What you can do with AQUOS LINK
✔ One Touch Recording (DTV only)
You do not have to search for the remote control unit of your recording device. Press
the REC E or REC STOP H buttons inside the flip cover to start/stop recording
what you see on the recorder.
✔ One Touch Play
While the TV is in standby mode, it will automatically turn on and play back the image
from the HDMI source.
✔ Single remote control operation
AQUOS LINK automatically recognises the connected HDMI devices and you can
control the TV and the devices as if using a universal remote control unit.
✔ Operating Title list of external devices
In addition to displaying the TV’s own Timer list (Pages 43 and 44), you can also call
up the external player’s Top menu or AQUOS BD Player’s/AQUOS Recorder’s Title list
provided that the devices support AQUOS LINK.
✔ Multiple control of HDMI devices
You can select which HDMI device to operate using the OPTION button.
NOTE
• When you use AQUOS LINK, make sure to use a certified HDMI cable.
• Point the remote control unit toward the TV, not to the connected HDMI device.
• Video noise may occur depending on the type of HDMI cable used. Make sure to use a
certified HDMI cable.
• Up to three HDMI recording devices, one AV amplifier and two players can be connected
using this system.
• These operations affect the HDMI device selected as the current external source. If the device
does not operate, turn on the device and select the appropriate external source using TV/
VIDEO.
• When you insert/remove HDMI cables or change connections, turn on all connected HDMI
devices before turning on the TV. Confirm that picture and audio are correctly output by
selecting “INPUT1”, “INPUT2” or “INPUT3” from the “INPUT SOURCE” menu.

Troubleshooting
The problems described below are not always caused by malfunctions. Check the TV again before having the TV
serviced.
Problem
Possible Solution
• No power.
• Check if you pressed POWER on the remote control unit. (See page 16.)
If the indicator on the TV lights up red, press POWER.
• Is the AC cord disconnected? (See page 10.)
• Has the power been turned on? (See page 16.)
• Unit cannot be operated.
• External influences such as lightning, static electricity, etc., may cause improper
operation. In this case, operate the unit after first turning the power off the TV or
unplugging the AC cord and re-plugging it in after 1 or 2 minutes.
• Remote control unit does not
operate.
•
•
•
•
• Picture is cut off.
• Is the image position correct? (See page 36.)
• Are screen mode adjustments such as picture size made correctly? (See pages 31,
32 and 56.)
• Strange colour, light colour, or
dark, or colour misalignment.
•
•
•
•
• Power is suddenly turned off.
• The unit's internal temperature has increased.
Remove any objects blocking the vent or clean.
• Check the ECO setting. (See page 30.)
• Is the sleep timer set? (See page 30.)
• No picture.
•
•
•
•
•
• No sound.
• Is the volume too low? (See page 21.)
• Make sure that headphones are not connected. (See page 8.)
• The TV sometimes makes a
cracking sound.
• This is not a malfunction. This happens when the cabinet slightly expands and contracts
according to changes in temperature. This does not affect the TV’s performance.
Are batteries inserted with polarity (e, f) aligned? (See page 15.)
Are batteries worn out? (Replace with new batteries.)
Are you using it under strong or fluorescent lighting?
Is a fluorescent light shining on the remote control sensor?
Adjust the picture tone. (See pages 34 to 36.)
Is the room too bright? The picture may look dark in a room that is too bright.
Check the colour system setting. (See pages 23 and 48.)
Check the HDMI auto view setting. (See page 46.)
Is the connection to external equipment correct? (See pages 13 and 14.)
Is the correct input selected? (See page 47.)
Is the picture adjustment correct? (See pages 34 to 36.)
Is the antenna connected properly? (See page 10.)
Is “On” selected in “Audio only”? (See page 26.)

Error code
Possible Solution
• Failed to receive broadcast.
E202
• Check the antenna cable. Check that the antenna is correctly
setup.
• No broadcast now.
E203
• Check the broadcast time in the program guide.
Cautions regarding use in high and low temperature environments
• When the unit is used in a low temperature 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 LCD panel to malfunction.
Storage temperature: f20°C to e60°C.
