IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Please read these instructions. All the safety and operating instructions should be read before the
appliance is operated.
Important Information Regarding Use of Video Games, Computers,
Captions or Other Fixed Image Displays
The extended use of fixed image program material can cause a permanent “shadow image” on the LCD
panel.
This background image is viewable on normal programs in the form of a stationary fixed image. This type
of irreversible LCD/LED panel deterioration can be limited by observing the following steps:
1. Reduce the brightness/contrast setting to a minimum viewing level.
2. Do not display the fixed image for extended periods of time.
3. Turn the power off when not in actual use.
Examples of images that you need to watch out for are as follows (this is not an exhaustive list):
• TV Channel Logos: e.g. Shopping channel logos and pricing displays-especially if they are
bright and stationary. Moving or low-contrast graphics are less likely to cause ageing of the screen.
• Time Displays
• Teletext: Do not view a stationary page for long period of time
• TV/DVD Menus: e.g. Listings of DVD disk content
• Pause Mode: Do not leave the TV in pause mode for long periods of time, e.g. When watching DVDs or
videos.
Important - Once ‘shadow image/screen burn’ occurs, it will never disappear and is not repairable under
warranty.
How do I dispose of this product?
UK: Waste electrical products should not be disposed of with household waste. Separate
disposal facilities exist. For your nearest facilities, please see www.recycle-more.co.uk or in
store for details.
ROI: Waste electrical products should not be disposed of with household waste. Separate
disposal facilities exist. Check with your Local Authority or retailer for recycling advice.
Batteries
• Observe the correct polarity when inserting batteries.
• Do not use different types of batteries together or mix old and new batteries.
• Dispose of batteries in an environmentally friendly way.
• Certain regions may regulate the disposal of batteries.
Please consult your local authority.

If it does not appear, on the remote control,
please press [MENU] then 8-8-8-8 and the
menu will appear.
Press OK on the remote control and tuning
will start.
6) After tuning the following screen will
appear.
If you are missing channels, the reason for this is likely to be signal strength, you should
consider connecting signal booster and re-tuning the TV.
Tip: If the TV finds some, but not all, of the Digital channels, the TV is functioning correctly but the
signal being received is not strong enough. (The signal strength needs to be above 85% - you can see the
signal strength the TV is receiving when you change channels/ programmes) you will need to increase
the signal reception in order to receive all of the channels available. The most economical way to do
this is by purchasing and connecting a ‘signal booster’ in between the TV and the TV aerial socket. If this
does not solve the problem, you will need to upgrade the TV aerial to a digital hi-gain compatible aerial

USB Record
USB RECORD - DIGITAL/FREEVIEW MODE
USB RECORD – DIGITAL/FREEVIEW MODE
Built into this television is a USB record facility. This function is available in Digital/Freeview mode when
used in conjunction with a compatible USB memory stick or USB Hard drive. The benefits of this are as
follows:
• Pause live TV/Radio and then playback, fast forward and rewind (up to live TV)
• One button record, if you decide you want to record the current programme
• Easy programmable recording from the 7 day TV Guide
• Record TV/Radio and watch/listen back on your computer/laptop
Due to the nature of the product, it is necessary to use a high speed USB memory stick (as the TV reads
from and writes to the memory stick at the same time, some memory sticks may not be suitable)
You can purchase high speed memory sticks from some computer stores, alternatively, we have a selection
of tested and compatible memory sticks available to purchase directly from the helpline/web site. These
are available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. (Please check the web site/helpline for latest specifications and prices)
Minimum Specification - USB Memory Stick
Read Speed
20 MB/s (Mega Byte Per Second)
Write Speed
6 MB/s (Mega Byte Per Second)
If you wish to use a USB portable hard drive larger than 32GB, please refer to the FAQ section at the rear
of this user guide.
Setting up the USB Memory Stick
1) Insert the USB Memory Stick into the USB Port located on the side of the television.
The TV will now test the speed of the memory
2) You will then have the option to start time shift
Tip: If the TV does not recognise the USB Memory Stick, please check that it is formatted to FAT32.
Pause Live TV/Radio (Time Shift)
Pausing Live TV/Radio is very simple.
- Press the play/pause button and the television will pause and the live
content will be recorded. To resume watching press play/pause again.
- Press fast forward to go forward in a recording (i.e. to skip adverts)
- Press fast rewind to go back in a recording (i.e. if you fast forwarded too
far)
Tip: When you switch the TV to standby or change channel the Time Shift memory is wiped. To restart
time shift you must press play/pause button.
One Button Record
At any point in time you may decide to record the current channel that you are watching. To do this you
need to press the [REC] button.
Tip: This television contains one TV tuner, therefore it can only record the channel you are watching or
record one channel while the television is in standby mode.
Note: USB record function is only avilable in Digital/Freeview TV/Radio mode. Due to copyright laws and
illegal copying/recording it is not possible to record to/from any other input/output source.
IMPORTANT NOTE. Occasionally we may release new software/firmware
upgrades/enhancements for this television. Please check the ‘firmware
upgrade’ section of the website regularly.

co.uk or call 08701 111 270.
2) Check you are using an aerial that is able to receive a good digital
signal. In most cases, you will need an outdoor digital hi-gain/wideband
aerial. In areas that have excellent Freeview coverage, you may be able
to use a loft type aerial but it is highly likely that you will also need to
connect a booster between the back of the TV and the TV aerial wall
socket. Unfortunately, to receive a good enough digital signal, it is not
possible to use a portable/indoor type aerial. This may change once the
analogue signal is switched off in 2012 and the Digital signal strength is
increased.

DIGITAL SWITCHOVER
Television in the UK is going digital, bringing us all more choice and new services. Starting late 2007 and
ending in 2012, television services in the UK will go completely digital, TV region by TV region.
How the switchover affects your TV equipment.
Your new TV has a digital tuner built in, which means it is ready to receive the Freeview signal by simply
connecting it into your aerial socket (you can check if you can get digital TV through your aerial now or
whether you will have to wait until the switchover at www.digitaluk.co.uk)
When the TV switchover happens in your area, there are at least two occasions when you will need to
re-tune your TV in order to continue receiving your existing TV channels and also to pick up new ones.
Digital UK, the body leading the digital switchover, will advise you when you need to retune during the
switchover.
How to retune.
Retuning your TV is a very quick and simple process. We recommend that you retune every few months to
ensure you are receiving the very latest TV and radio channels that are broadcast.
1) On the remote control press [MENU] followed by 8 - 8 - 8 - 8 (so the number 8 button four times)
2) The First Time Installation menu will appear. Press [OK] and tuning will take place.
For help and support regarding the digital switchover, please contact Digital UK:
Telephone: 08456 50 50 50 (calls charged at local call rate, approx 3p per minute daytime or 1p per minute
evenings from a BT landline)
