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 all-inclusive list):
x 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.
x Time Displays
x Teletext: Do not view a stationary page for long period of time
x TV/DVD Menus: e.g. Listings of DVD disk content
x 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’ occurs it will never disappear completely and is not covered under
warranty.

DETACHING THE STAND & WALL MOUNTING
IMPORTANT - BEFORE DRILLING ANY HOLES IN THE WALL ENSURE YOU ARE NOT DRILLING
WHERE THERE COULD BE ANY ELECTRIC WIRES, WATER OR GAS PIPES
This television requires a VESA 200 x 400 wall mount, or equivalent.
200 x 400
Detaching the Stand
1) Remove the five screws indicated below
Important – If wall mounting this TV,
only use the screws already
provided in the wall mounting holes.
Using other screws which are longer
could cause irreparable damage to
internal parts.
2) The stand will now come off
Wall mounting the TV
1) Remove the four screws highlighted below.
2) The wall mount can now be easily attached
to the mounting holes on the rear of the TV.
These holes are indicated in the picture below.

GETTING STARTED - INITIAL SET UP
1) Using the RF cable supplied, connect the TV to
the TV Aerial wall socket (Fig A)
2) Connect the power cable to the Electrical outlet
(Fig B)
Fig B

3) Switch on the television using the power on/off
switch located on the side or underside of the TV.
4) Insert the batteries supplied into the Remote
control and press the Power/Standby button to
power on the TV
On/Off
5) You will now be welcomed with the initial set-up
screen.
6) After tuning the following screen will appear.
If it does not, please press [MENU] then 8-8-8-8 and
the menu will appear.
Press OK on the remote control and tuning will start.
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

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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 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.
Blu-ray/DVD
I have inserted a disc but it is not playing
1) Ensure you have inserted put the disc in facing the correct way
forward

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 buttons 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)
