Important Safety Instructions
Child Safety
It Makes A Difference
Where Your TV Stands
Congratulations on your purchase! As you enjoy
your new TV, keep these safety tips in mind:
The Issue
If you are like most consumers, you have a TV in your home.
Many homes, in fact, have more than one TV.
The home theater entertainment experience is a growing
trend, and larger TVs are popular purchases; however, they
are not always supported on the proper TV stands.
Sometimes TVs are improperly secured or inappropriately
situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks, audio
speakers, chests, or carts. As a result, TVs may fall over,
causing unnecessary injury.
Toshiba Cares!
The consumer electronics industry
is committed to making home
entertainment enjoyable and safe.
The Consumer Electronics
Association formed the Home
Entertainment Support Safety
Committee, comprised of TV and
consumer electronics furniture
manufacturers, to advocate
children’s safety and educate
consumers and their families about
television safety.
Tune Into Safety
One size does NOT fit all! Use appropriate
furniture large enough to support the weight of your
TV (and other electronic components).
Use appropriate angle braces, straps, and anchors to secure
your furniture to the wall (but never screw anything directly
into the TV).
Carefully read and understand the other enclosed
instructions for proper use of this product.
Do not allow children to climb on or play with furniture
and TVs.
Avoid placing any item on top of your TV (such as a VCR,
remote control, or toy) that a curious child may reach for.
Remember that children can become excited while watching
a program and can potentially push or pull a TV over.
Share our safety message about this hidden hazard of the
home with your family and friends. Thank you!

DANGER: RISK OF SERIOUS PERSONAL
INJURY OR DEATH!
• Use extreme care to make sure you are never in
a position where your body (or any item you are in contact
with, such as a ladder or screwdriver) can accidentally
touch overhead power lines. Never
locate the antenna near overhead
power lines or other electrical
circuits.
• Never attempt to install any of the
following during lightning activity:
a) an antenna system; or b) cables, wires, or any home
theater component connected to an antenna or phone
system.
Care
For better performance and safer operation of your TOSHIBA
TV, follow these recommendations and precautions:
28) If you use the TV in a room whose temperature is 32 ºF (0 ºC)
or below, the picture brightness may vary until the LCD
warms up. This is not a sign of malfunction.
29) Always unplug the TV before
cleaning. Wipe the display
panel surface gently using only
a soft cloth (cotton, flannel,
etc.). A hard cloth may
damage the surface of the
panel. Avoid contact with
alcohol, thinner, benzene, acidic or alkaline solvent
cleaners, abrasive cleaners, or chemical cloths, which may
damage the surface. Do not spray volatile compounds
such as insecticide on the cabinet. This may cause a
discoloration or damage the cabinet.
24) Never overload wall outlets and extension cords.
25) Always operate the TV with
a 100-240 V AC, 60Hz power source
only.
30)
100-240 V AC
WARNING: RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK!

31) While it is thundering, do not touch the connecting cables
or apparatus. Failure to follow this instruction may result in
electric shock.
32) For added protection of your TV from lightning and power
surges, always unplug the power cord and disconnect the
antenna from the TV if you leave the TV unattended or
unused for long periods of time.
33) During normal use, the TV may make occasional snapping
or popping sounds. This is normal, especially when the
unit is being turned on or off. If these sounds become
frequent or continuous, unplug the power cord and
contact a Toshiba Authorized Service Center.
34)
WARNING: RISK OF
SERIOUS PERSONAL
INJURY OR EQUIPMENT
DAMAGE !
Never strike the screen with a sharp or heavy object.
35) • The LCD screen of this product can be damaged by
Ultraviolet Radiation from the sun. When selecting a
location for the television, avoid locations where the
screen may be exposed to direct sunlight, such as in
front of a window.
Important notes about your LCD TV
The following symptoms are technical limitations of
LCD Display technology and are not an indication of
malfunction. Therefore, TACP/TCL is not responsible
for perceived defects resulting from these symptoms.
1) An afterimage (ghost) may appear on the screen if a fixed,
non-moving image is displayed for a long period of time.
The afterimage is not permanent and will disappear in a
short period of time.
2) The LCD panel contained in this TV is manufactured using
an extremely high level of precision technology; however,
there may be an occasional pixel (dot of light) that does
not operate properly (that does not light, that remains
constantly lit, etc.). This is a structural property of LCD
technology, is not a sign of malfunction, and is not
covered under your warranty. Such pixels are not visible
when the picture is viewed from a normal viewing
distance.
Note: Interactive video games that involve shooting a
“gun” type of joystick at an on-screen target may not work
on this TV.
• Never touch, press, or place anything on the LCD screen.
These actions will damage the LCD screen. If you need
to clean the LCD screen, follow the instructions in item
29 on page 4.
Service
36)
WARNING: RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK !
Never attempt to service the TV yourself. Opening
and removing the covers may expose you to
dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to
a Toshiba Authorized Service Center.
37) If you have the TV serviced:
• Ask the service technician to use only replacement parts
specified by the manufacturer.
• Upon completion of service, ask the service technician to
perform routine safety checks to determine that the TV is
in safe operating condition.
38) The cold cathode fluorescent lamp in the LCD panel
contains a small amount of mercury.
When the TV reaches the end of its useful life, dispose of
the used TV by the approved method for your area, or ask
a qualified service technician to properly dispose of the
TV.
Note: The lamp unit contains mercury, the
disposal of which may be regulated due to
environmental considerations. For disposal or
recycling information, contact your local authorities or the
Electronics Industries Alliance (www.eiae.org).

Connecting
your TV
●
Coaxial (F-type) cable is used for connecting your antenna, cable TV
service, and/or cable converter box to the ANT 75 Ω RF input on your
TV.
Standard A/V cables (composite video) usually come in sets of three,
and are for use with video devices with standard audio and standard
(composite) video output. These cables (and the related inputs on your
TV) are typically color-coded according to use: yellow for video, red
for stereo right audio, and white for stereo left (or mono) audio.
S-video cable is for use with video devices with S-video output.
Separate audio cables are required for a complete connection.

Component video cables come in sets of three and are for use with
video devices with component video output. These cables are typically
color-coded red, green, and blue. (ColorStream® is Toshiba’s brand of
component video.) Separate audio cables are required for a complete
connection.
Note: Component video cables provide better picture performance than a
standard (composite) video or S-video cable.
●
Mini D-sub 15-pin cable is for use with a personal computer with an
analog RGB (15-pin) output. A separate audio cable is required for a

Installing the remote control batteries
To install the batteries:
1. Open the battery cover on the back of the remote control.
2. Install two batteries (R6 size “AA”). Match the + and – signs on
the batteries to the signs on the battery compartment.
Caution:
Never throw batteries into a fire.
Note:
• Be sure to use AA size batteries.
• Dispose of batteries in a designated
disposal area.
3. Replace the battery cover on the remote control until the lock
snaps.
Remote control effective range
• Batteries should always be disposed of with
the environment in mind. Always dispose of
batteries in accordance with applicable laws
and regulations.
• If the remote control does not operate
correctly, or if the operating range becomes
reduced, replace batteries with new ones.
• When necessary to replace batteries in the
remote control, always replace both
batteries with new ones. Never mix battery
types or use new and used batteries in
combination.
• Always remove batteries from remote
control if they are dead or if the remote
control is not to be used for an extended
period of time. This will prevent battery acid
from leaking into the battery compartment.
* The TV is in standby mode when the power is OFF but the power cord is still plugged into an outlet.
