your home, consult your product dealer or local power company. For products intended to operate from battery power, or other sources, refer to the
operating instructions.
12. Power-Cord Polarization
This product is equipped with a three-wire grounding type plug, a plug having a third (grounding) pin. This plug will only fit into the grounding-type

protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810
of the National Electrical Code (U.S.A.), ANSI/ NFPA 70 provides information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of
grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to
grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.
16. Power Lines
An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can
fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna
system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power
lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
17. Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can
result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
Example of Grounding According to National Electrical
Code Instructions

Q: Why is my TV too dark or too bright?
A: You can adjust the brightness of the LCD screen. Refer to “Adjusting
the Display” on page 13.

image or no picture at all.
Q: Why can’t I view any TV channels?
A: You must scan for channels before you can view TV channels. For
more information, see page 15.
Q: Why is my reception bad when watching TV?
A: This could be a variety of reasons, including local interference, if using
an over-the-air antenna. Make sure you use a coaxial cable for TV input.
Make sure the connection is secure, and grounded. (You may need an
electrician to check this for you.) Reception is best from cable TV, satellite dish, or a high-powered rooftop antenna.
Q: Why is the screen too light/dark when in VGA mode?
A: You may need to adjust the white balance. See “White Balance” on
page 14. Also, try adjusting the brightness. You can also find this on
page 14.

Q: How do I mount my LCD TV to the wall?
A: You will need to purchase a standard wall mount kit (100 mm x 100
mm screw mount area, minimum 35 kg load-carrying weight) from your
local retailer if you want to attach the LCD TV to a wall or other fixed surface. First, prepare a flat, stable working area with a soft cloth or foam
pad to place the LCD TV on. Next, turn the LCD TV power off, disconnect it from the power adapter, and gently lay the display on its front
(screen side.) Third. remove the four screws located at the rear of the
LCD TV as illustrated in picture B, above. Remove the LCD TV display
stand. For final attachment and hanging, refer to and follow the instructions included with the wall mount kit that you purchased.
