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.

Fig B

3) Switch on the television using the
power on/off switch.
4) Insert the batteries supplied into the
Remote control and press the Standby
button to power on the TV
Power on/off
5) You will now be welcomed with the initial
set-up screen.
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.
As part of our ongoing development to reduce power consumption, we have added an extra function to this Television
called ‘Ecohome’ (you will see this during the first time installation set up). Power consumption using the Ecohome
function is approximately 15% lower than some other modes. The picture brightness is reduced using the Ecohome
function. If this function is not suitable for your viewing environment, you can select other modes as necessary. (Please
note, ‘Professional’ mode is for optimum default picture settings, however, power consumption is approximately 15%
higher than ‘Ecohome’ mode)
Please refer to the user guide section ‘Picture settings’ in order to change the mode to one that maybe more suitable for
your environment. There is also a shortcut button on the remote control called ‘P-Mode’ should you wish to change to
another mode.

to an external amplifier or surround sound (subject to connections/inputs
on the device) as follows:1) Connect a COAX cable* from the TV’s COAX output to your amplifier/
surround systems COAX input
2) Connect a 3.5mm jack to L/R phono cable* from the TV’s headphone

General
Why are some options in
the menu unavailable and
greyed out
Some options are only available in certain sources, i.e. HDMI, PC/VGA.
They are unavailable in the other sources where they have no affect.
TV
I have tuned in Digital TV
but I am not receiving any
or all of the channels and/
or the channels I receive are
breaking up
1) Check you are in an area that can receive Freeview.
Visit www.freeview.co.uk.
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.
TV
I have re-tuned my television
but when I switch it off it is
not storing the channels
Complete a first time installation, please refer to the set-up menu section
of the manual for how to do this

phono inputs on the rear of the TV. Please refer to the ‘Connections’
pages.

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)
