• 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 the 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 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 when the 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.
• Unplug the power cord before cleaning your TV.
• When moving your TV from an area of low temperature

TELEVISION ANTENNA CONNECTION
PROTECTION
If an outside antenna/satellite dish or cable system is to be
connected to the TV, make sure that the antenna or cable system
is electrically grounded to provide some protection against
voltage surges and static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPSA 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, size of the grounding conductors,
location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements of the grounding electrode.
Ground Clamp
Lightning Protection
For added protection of the TV during a lightning storm or when
it is left unattended or unused for long periods of time, unplug
the TV from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable
system.
Power Lines
Do not locate the antenna near overhead light or power circuits,
or where it could fall into such power lines or circuits. Remember,
the screen of the coaxial cable is intended to be connected to
earth in the building installation.

The image quality is not good.
• For the best image quality, view high-definition
programs using digital sources. Connect your devices
with HDMI cables.
I see “noise” or static on the screen.
• When your TV’s digital capabilities exceed a
digital broadcast signal, the signal is up-converted
(improved) to match your TV’s display capabilities. This
up-converting can sometimes cause irregularities in the
image.
• If you are using an antenna, the signal strength of the
channel may be low. Ensure your antenna is connected
securely to the TV and move the antenna around the
room or close to a window for the best signal.
• If you are using an antenna, the signal strength of the
channel may be low. Ensure your antenna is connected
securely to the TV and move the antenna around the
room or close to a window for the best signal.
The picture is distorted.
• Nearby electrical devices may be interfering with the
TV. Separate the TV from electrical appliances, cars, or
fluorescent lights.
When I change input source, the volume changes.
• The TV remembers the volume level on each input
source. If the volume level on the new input source is
higher or lower than the level on the source you switch
from, the difference may be noticeable.
• Ensure all cables are securely attached.
The display image does not cover the entire screen.
• If you are in RGB mode (computer), ensure that H-Size
and V-Position in the on-screen menu are set correctly.
• Use the Volume Up/Down buttons on the remote to
adjust the volume.
• If you are using TV, AV1, AV2, or Component with 480i
input, press the WIDE button on the remote to change
the screen mode.
When I change input source, the display image changes size.
• The TV remembers the viewing mode on each input
source. If the viewing mode on the new input source
differs from the one on the input source you switch from,
the difference may be noticeable.
The TV has pixels (dots) that are always dark or always lit.
• Your HDTV is precision-manufactured using an extremely
high level of technology. However, sometimes pixels may
not display correctly. These types of occurrences are
inherent to this type of product and do not constitute a
defective product.
