The mains lead of this product is fitted with a non-rewireable (moulded) plug incorporating a 5A fuse. Should
and of the same rating
the fuse need to be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved BS 1362 fuse marked
as above, which is also indicated on the pin face of the plug, must be used.
Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse. Never use the plug without the fuse cover fitted.
In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home not being compatible with the plug supplied, cut off the
mains plug and fit an appropriate type.
The fuse from the cut-off plug should be removed and the cut-off plug destroyed immediately and disposed
of in a safe manner.
Under no circumstances should the cut-off plug be inserted elsewhere into a 5A socket outlet, as a serious
electric shock may occur.
To fit an appropriate plug to the mains lead, follow the instructions below:
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Blue: Neutral
Brown: Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this product may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
• The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked N or coloured black.
• The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked L or coloured red.
Ensure that neither the brown nor the blue wire is connected to the earth terminal in your three pin plug.
Before replacing the plug cover make sure that:
• If the new fitted plug contains a fuse, its value is the same as that removed from the cut-off plug.
• The cord grip is clamped over the sheath of the mains lead, and not simply over the lead wires.

Important safety precautions
• Cleaning—Unplug the AC cord from the AC outlet before cleaning the product. Use a damp cloth to clean
the product. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
• Use a soft damp cloth to gently wipe the panel when it is dirty. To protect the panel, do not use a chemical
cloth to clean it. Chemicals may cause damage or cracks in the cabinet of the TV.
• 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 dropped or impact applied. 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 cord under the TV set or other heavy items.
• Headphones—Do not set the volume at a high level. Hearing experts advise against extended listening at
high volume levels.
• Do not display a still picture for a long time, as this could cause an afterimage to remain.
• There is power consumption always if main plug is connected.
• Servicing—Do not attempt to service the product yourself. Removing covers can expose you to high voltage
and other dangerous conditions. Request a qualified person to perform servicing.
The LCD panel is a very high technology product, 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
When transporting the TV, never carry it by holding onto the speakers. Be sure to always carry the TV by two
people holding it with two hands—one hand on each side of the TV.
To prevent the spread of fire, keep candles or other open flames away from this product
at all times.

LCD Screen
The LCD panel is a very high technology product with
about a million thin film transistors, giving you fine
picture details. Occasionally, a few non-active pixels
may appear on the screen as a fixed blue, green or
red point. Please note that this does not affect the
performance of your product.
Warning! Do not leave your TV in standby or operating
mode when you leave your house.
Connection to a Television Distribution
System (Cable TV etc.) from Tuner
Device connected to the protective earthing of the
building installation through the mains connection or
through other apparatus with a connection to protective
earthing-and to a television distribution system using
coaxial cable, may in some circumstances create a
fire hazard.

Multimedia Interface are trademarks or registered

• The DVB logo is the registered trademark of the
Digital Video Broadcasting—DVB—project.
Electrical device not in the hands of children
Never let children use any electrical device
unsupervised. Children cannot always recognise
possible dangers. Batteries / accumulators can be
life threatening when swallowed. Store batteries out
of the reach of small children. In case of swallowing
a battery medical aid has to be sought immediately.
Also keep the packaging foils away from children as
there is danger of suffocation.
Connection to a cable distribution system has
therefore to be provided through a device providing
electrical isolation below a certain frequency range
(galvanic isolator, see EN 60728-11).
Note:The HDMI connection between PC and TV
may cause radio interference in which case it is
recommended to use VGA(DSUB-15) connection.
The Standby Off/On button doesn´t separate this
device completely from mains. Moreover the device
consumes power in the standby operation. In order to
separate the device completely from mains, the mains
plug has to be pulled from the mains socket. Because
of that the device should be set up in a way, that an
unobstructed access to mains socket is guaranteed,
so that in case of emergency the mains plug can be
pulled immediately. To exclude the danger of fire, the
power cord should principally be separated from the
mains socket prior to a longer period of non-usage,
i.e. during vacations.
