In addition, it describes two functions
that make watching TV easier and

Teletext

If you select a program and the
broadcaster offers a teletext service,
the television gives you access to
teletext pages and any subpages
linked to the pages.
The arrow buttons on Beo4 and the
menu bar at the top of the screen,
help you move to the page you want.
When you get there, you can pause
the turning of subpages to read them
at your own pace.
The television can remember your
favourite pages, reveal hidden
messages or help you switch to
another program’s teletext service. To
make your favourite teletext pages
appear first when you bring up
teletext, store them as MEMO pages.
Basic teletext functions
Navigate through teletext pages by using the
menu bar at the top of the teletext page.

Maintenance
18
Regular maintenance, such as cleaning
the television, is the responsibility of
the user. To achieve the best result,
follow the instructions to the right.
Contact your Bang & Olufsen retailer
to determine recommendations for
regular maintenance.
Cleaning
Never use alcohol or other solvents to clean any
part of the television, stand or wall bracket!
Cabinet surfaces
Wipe dust off the surfaces using a dry, soft cloth.
Remove grease stains or persistent dirt with a soft,
lint-free, firmly wrung cloth, dipped in a solution of
water containing only a few drops of mild detergent,
such as washing-up liquid.
Anti-reflex coated screen …
To clean the picture screen, use a mild window
cleaning fluid (not containing alcohol). To retain
the optimum performance of the screen, make sure
that no streaks or traces of the cleaning fluid are
left on the screen.
Beo4
Wipe the Beo4 remote control with a soft, lint-free,
firmly wrung cloth.
The speaker cover may also be cleaned with a
vacuum cleaner, set to the lowest level.
Changing the Beo4 batteries
When BATTERY appears in the Beo4 display, it is
time to change the batteries in the remote control.
2
1
The Beo4 requires three batteries. We recommend
that you use Alkaline batteries only (1.5 V – size
AAA). Replace the batteries as shown on this
page. Keep a finger on top of the batteries until
the lid is replaced
When you have replaced the batteries, wait about
10 seconds until TV appears in the display. The
Beo4 remote control is then ready for use.
Do not expose batteries to excessive heat such as
sunshine, fire or the like!
NOTE! If the front screen glass should crack or
chip, or if it should be damaged in any way, it
must be replaced immediately, as it could otherwise cause injury. You can order replacement
front screen glass from your Bang & Olufsen
retailer.
