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
a If you are like most consumers, you have a TV in your
home. Many homes, in fact, have more than one TV.
a 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.
a 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!
a The consumer electronics
industry is committed to
making home entertainment
enjoyable and safe.
a 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.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is
intended to alert the user to the presence of important
operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in
the literature accompanying the appliance.
WARNING
To prevent injury, this apparatus must be securely attached to
the floor/wall in accordance with the installation instructions.
See item 20 on page 3.
WARNING: If you decide to wall mount this television,
always use a UL Listed wall bracket appropriate for the size
and weight of this television. The use of any wall bracket
other than a UL Listed wall bracket appropriate for the size
and weight of this television for wall mounting this television
could result in serious bodily injury and/or property damage.
See “Removing the Pedestal Stand” (- page 5).
NOTE TO CATV INSTALLERS
This is a reminder to call the CATV system installer’s attention
to Article 820-40 of the U.S. NEC, which provides guidelines for
proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable
ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the
building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical. For
additional antenna grounding information, see items 27 and 28
on page 4.
Tune Into Safety

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.

Chapter 2: Connecting your TV
Cables can be purchased from most stores that sell audio/video
devices. Before purchasing any cables, be sure of connector
types required by your devices and the length of each cable.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) cable is for use
with devices with an HDMI output. An HDMI cable delivers
digital audio and video in its native format. This cable carries
both video and audio information; therefore, separate audio
cables are not required for a complete HDMI device
connection (- page 20 and page 23).
Coaxial (F-type) cable
Note: HDMI cable provides better picture performance than a
standard (composite) video or S-video cable.
Overview of cable types
Dual-wand IR blaster cable
Coaxial (F-type) cable is used for connecting your antenna,
cable TV service, and/or cable converter box to the ANT input
on your TV.
Dual-wand IR blaster cable is for use with video devices with
IR (infrared) remote control. This cable can be used with the
TV’s IR pass-through feature (- page 18).
Standard A/V cables (red/white/yellow)
To obtain IR blaster cable:
Standard A/V cables (composite video) usually come in sets of
three, and are for use with video devices with analog audio and
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
Visit www.ceaccessories.toshiba.com.
Optical audio cable
Optical audio cable is for connecting receivers with Dolby
Digital or PCM (pulse-code modulation) optical audio input to
the TV’s DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminal (- page 22).
Analog RGB (15-pin) computer cable
S-video cable is for use with video devices with S-video
output. Separate audio cables are required for a complete
connection.
Note: An S-video cable provides better picture performance
than a composite video cable. If you connect an S-video cable,
be sure to disconnect the standard (composite) video cable or
the picture performance will be unacceptable.
Analog RGB (15-pin) computer cable is for connecting a PC to
the TV’s PC IN terminal (- page 23).
Ethernet (RJ-45) cable
Component video cables (red/green/blue)
Ethernet (RJ-45) cable is used to connect the TV to your home
network (- page 24 and Chapter 8).
Component video cables come in sets of three and are for use
with video devices with component video output.
(ColorStream® is Toshiba’s brand of component video.) These
cables are typically color-coded red, green, and blue. 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.

TV in several different configurations. The connection
illustrations in this manual are representative of typical device
connections only. The input/output terminals on your devices
may differ from those illustrated herein. For details on

Chapter 2: Connecting your TV
Connecting a device to the IR OUT
infrared terminal using the IR
blaster cable for IR pass-through
device control
You can use the TV’s IR OUT terminal (infrared passthrough) to remotely operate (through the TV) many infrared
remote-controlled devices (such as Toshiba infrared remotecontrolled VCRs or DVD players) enclosed within an
entertainment center or similar cabinet. Without the IR OUT
connection, the device typically would need to be visible to
operate it remotely.
To connect the IR blaster cable:
1
Locate the infrared sensor on the front of your device.
This sensor is marked on some devices.*
2
Align one of the IR blaster cable’s wands about 1 inch
away from the infrared sensor on the front of the device
and attach it using double-sided mounting tape. If you
have a second device, attach the second wand in a similar
manner. (See illustration.)
Note: If you do not have a second device, coil the second
wand with a rubber band and leave it behind the TV.
3
Plug the IR blaster cable’s plug into the TV’s IR OUT
terminal.
To control the device(s):
You will need:
• dual-wand IR blaster cable (- page 14)
• other audio/video cables as required to connect the device(s)
to the TV (- pages 15–20)
Front of IR-controlled DVD player (for example)
Point either the device’s remote control or the TV remote
control (that you previously programmed to operate the
device; - Chapter 3) toward the front of the TV and press the
button for the desired function. The signal passes from the
remote control through the TV to the device via the IR blaster
cable.

Note:
• If you use the device’s remote control to operate the device,
you also will need to use the TV’s remote control to operate
the TV.
• The IR pass-through feature does not support all
IR-controlled devices; satisfactory performance may not be
attainable with certain devices.
*If you cannot locate the device’s infrared sensor:

5
Turn OFF the device.
Starting at the lower left corner of the device, place the
end of the device’s remote control (with the infrared
emitter) so it touches the front of the device and press
POWER. (Do not use the TV’s remote control for this
step.)
If the device turns on, the point at which the remote
control touched the device is the location of the sensor.
If the device does not turn on, move the remote control
slightly to the right and press POWER again.
Repeat step 4 until you locate the device’s infrared
sensor.

Chapter 2: Connecting your TV
Connecting an HDMI™ or DVI device
to the HDMI input
The HDMI input on your TV receives digital audio and
uncompressed digital video from an HDMI source device, or
uncompressed digital video from a DVI (Digital Visual
Interface) source device.
This input is designed to accept HDCP (High-Bandwidth
Digital-Content Protection) program material in digital form
from EIA/CEA-861-D–compliant[1] consumer electronic
devices (such as a set-top box or DVD player with HDMI or
DVI output).
The HDMI input can accept and display VGA, 480i (60Hz),
480p (60Hz), 720p (60Hz), 1080i (60Hz), and 1080p (24Hz/
60Hz) signal formats. For detailed signal specifications, see
page 109.
Note:
• Some of legacy HDMI sources may not work properly with
your latest HDMI TV, due to new standard adoption. Please
try to set Off the following three options (Lip-Sync Latency,
Deep Color, xvYCC). Your legacy HDMI source should
operate properly with your TV. See page 75.
• Supported Audio format : Linear PCM, sampling rate 32/
44.1/48kHz
To connect a DVI device, you will need:
• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable (HDMI type A connector)
per DVI device
– For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-DVI
adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m). The
recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables per DVI device
– An HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable transfers video only.
Separate analog audio cables are required (see
illustration).
– See “Setting the HDMI™ audio mode” (- page 48).

Chapter 3: Using the remote control
Using the remote control to operate
your other devices
Your TV remote control has one dedicated TV mode and three
programmable multi-brand modes: CABLE/SAT, DVD,
VCR/PVR, AUX 1, and AUX 2. The default device modes
and programmable device modes are listed below.
Note: The TV remote control is preprogrammed to operate
most Toshiba devices. To operate a non-Toshiba device or a
Toshiba device that the remote control is not preprogrammed
to operate, you will need to program the remote control. See
“Programming the remote control to operate your other
devices” (at right).

Device code setup
1
Find the code for your device brand in the remote control
device code table on pages 33–39.
If more than one code is listed, try each one separately
until you find one that works.
2
Press the applicable MODE SELECT button (CABLE/
SAT, DVD, VCR/PVR, AUX 1, or AUX 2), until the
MODE SELECT button blinks 3 times.
3
While holding down E, press the five-digit device code
for your device.
• If a valid code is entered, the MODE SELECT button
will blink twice.
• If an invalid code is entered, the MODE SELECT
button will blink one long blink.
4
Point the remote control at the device and press p to test
the code.
• If the device responds to the remote control, you have
entered the correct code.
• If the device does not respond to the remote control,
repeat steps 3 and 4 using another code.

Note: After programming the remote control, make sure
all necessary keys on the TV remote control (in addition to
p) operate your device. If some keys are not
operational, repeat the device code setup using another
code (if other codes are listed for your device). If, after
trying all listed codes, the necessary keys do not operate
your device, use the device’s original remote control.

Note: Although your new TV’s remote control includes codes
for many devices, it may not include codes for some or all of
the features on certain devices you wish to control. If you are
unable to program the TV’s remote control to operate your
device or some of the features on that device, use the device’s
remote control or the controls on the device.
5
To control the TV, press the “TV” MODE SELECT
button.
Note:
• Although the TV remote control includes codes for many
devices, it may not include codes for some or all of the
features on certain devices you want to control. If you are
unable to program the TV remote control to operate your
device or some of the features on that device, use the
device’s original remote control (or the control buttons on
the device).
• Every time you change the batteries you will need to
reprogram the remote control.
• Some newer VCRs respond to either of two codes. These
VCRs have a switch labeled “VCR1/VCR2.” If your VCR has
this kind of switch and does not respond to the codes for
your VCR brand, set the switch to the other position (“VCR1”
or “VCR2”) and reprogram the remote control.

Chapter 3: Using the remote control
Searching and sampling the code of a
device (8500)
If you do not know the device code for a particular device, you
can cycle the remote control through the available codes for
that device mode and sample the functions to find the code that
operates the target device. The keys available to be sampled,
provided they are applicable to that mode, are p, 1, z, <,
and S. Invalid keys will be ignored while in program mode.
To cycle through each available device code and
sample its functions:
1
Press the appropriate MODE SELECT button on the
remote control.
2
While holding down E, press 8, 5, 0, 0. The remote
control will enter program mode.
3
Point the remote control at the target device and press p
(or other function buttons that are available to be
sampled).
4
If the device responds to the remote control:
Press E to store the device code. The MODE
SELECT button will blink two times and the remote
control will exit the program mode.
If the device does not respond to the remote control:
Press B, and then press p. Repeat this step until the
device responds to the remote control, and then press
E.
Note: When a search cycle is completed, the MODE
SELECT button will blink three times. The remote control
will begin to cycle through the available codes again. If no
key is pressed within 10 seconds during programming,
the remote control will exit the program mode and return
to the previous code.
Using the volume lock feature (8000)
By default (factory setting), the remote control’s volume keys
(z Z and W) are locked to the “TV” device mode.
The remote control will operate the TV’s volume, even when
“TV” is not the current device mode. (This includes all remote
control device modes except AUX 1 and AUX 2).
If you unlock the remote control’s volume keys, each device
mode will have its own volume (if the device ID has volume
data). The remote control will operate the volume of the device
associated with the current device mode. (This includes all
remote control device modes.)
If you lock the remote control’s volume keys to a specific
device mode, the remote control will operate the volume of the
device associated with the locked mode, even when the locked
mode is not the current device mode. (This includes all device
modes except AUX 1 and AUX 2).
When the remote control is in AUX 1 (or AUX 2) mode, the
remote control will operate the volume of the device associated
with the AUX 1 (or AUX 2) mode, even when the volume is
locked to another mode.
See “Using the remote control to operate your other devices”
on page 31.
To lock the remote control’s volume keys to a specific
mode (CABLE/SAT in this example):
1
2
3
Press CABLE/SAT.
While holding down the E button, press 8, 0, 0, 0.
Press z. The CABLE/SAT MODE SELECT button will
blink two times (locked).
The remote control’s volume keys will now operate the
volume of the device associated with the CABLE/SAT
mode, even when CABLE/SAT is not the current device
mode (for all device modes except AUX 1 and AUX 2).
To unlock the remote control’s volume keys:
1
2
While holding down E, press 8, 0, 0, 0.
Press Z. The CABLE/SAT MODE SELECT button will
blink four times (unlocked).
Operational feature reset (8900)
This feature clears all programmed remote control features not
related to “Device code setup” and resets the volume lock to
the “TV” device mode.
To reset the remote control:
While holding down E, press 8, 9, 0, 0. The MODE
SELECT button will respond with four blinks.

Note:
• You must configure the antenna input source before
programming channels (- at left).
• If the Antenna input signal type is set to Cable, the automatic
channel programming process erases channels that were
previously programmed into the TV’s memory.
• If the Antenna input signal type is set to Antenna, the
automatic channel programming process adds newly found
channels to the existing set of programmed channels (and
does NOT erase channels that were previously
programmed into the TV’s memory.) To remove an Antenna
source channel from the memory, you must manually delete
it.
• To tune the TV to a channel not programmed in the channel
memory, you must use the Channel Number buttons on the
remote control.
• Programming channels when the antenna input is
configured for Cable will take substantially longer than when
the antenna input is configured for Antenna. This is normal;
however, once channel programming is finished, you should
not have to repeat the programming process again unless
your Cable TV service lineup changes significantly.
To program channels automatically:

Configure the antenna input source, if you have not
already done so (- at left).

• Cable
• Compact Disc
• DTV
• DVD

Press C or c to select the desired label for that input
source. If a particular input is not used, you can select

the inputs if you connected a VCR to VIDEO 1, Cable TV to
VIDEO 2, a video recorder to ColorStream HD1, a DTV settop box to HDMI 1, a satellite/DSS set-top box to HDMI 2, and
a DVD player to HDMI 3. Also note that the ColorStream HD2
input is labeled “Hidden,” which means that input will be
skipped over when + is pressed.

CC Selector
You can customize the closed caption display characteristics
by changing the background color, text size, opacity, type,
edge, and color.
You can use the CC Selector to temporarily override the
default analog caption mode (set in Base CC Mode) for a
particular channel. However, once you change to another
analog channel, the closed caption setting will automatically
change back to the current Base CC Mode setting.
You can also use the CC Selector to select digital closed
caption services (if available). When such services are not
available, the CC Selector presents a default list of services.
If the selected service is not available, the next best service will
be used instead.
Note:
• This feature is available for digital channels only.
• You cannot set the Caption Text and Background as the
same color.

Chapter 6: Using the TV’s features
To listen to a second audio program on an analog
station (if available):
Select SAP in step 3 on the previous page.
Note:
• A second audio program (SAP) can be heard only on those
TV stations that offer it. For example, a station might
broadcast another language as a second audio program. If
you have SAP on, you will see the current program on the
screen but hear the other language instead of the program’s
normal audio.
• If you have SAP on and the station you are watching is not
broadcasting a second audio program, the station’s normal
audio will be output. However, occasionally there is no
sound at all in SAP mode. If this happens, set the MTS
feature to Stereo mode.
Using the StableSound® feature
The StableSound® feature limits the highest volume level to

server through the TV.
Note:
• Contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to obtain
and set up Internet/e-mail service.
• You will NOT be able to access or browse the Internet
through the TV.
Follow the steps in sections A through D (- pages 87–93)
to set up and use the TV’s home network features.
* The TV’s home network feature is compatible with Microsoft®
Windows® 2000 and Microsoft® Windows® XP Home/
Professional SP2 or higher.
Microsoft and Windows are either registered trademarks or
trademarks of Microsoft Corporation in the United States and/or
other countries.

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting
General troubleshooting
Before calling a service technician, please check this chapter
for a possible cause of the problem and some solutions to try.
Black box on-screen
• The closed caption feature is set to one of the Text modes
(T1, T2, T3, or T4). Set the closed caption feature to Off
(- page 62).
TV stops responding to controls
• If the TV stops responding to the controls on the remote
control or TV control panel and you cannot turn off the
TV, press and hold the POWER button on the TV control
panel for 5 or more seconds to reset the TV.
Other problems
• If your TV’s problem is not addressed in this
Troubleshooting section or the recommended solution
has not worked, use the Reset Factory Defaults procedure
(- page 49).
TV will not turn on
• Make sure the power cord is plugged in, and then
press p.
• The remote control batteries may be dead. Replace the
batteries or try the control panel buttons.
Picture problems
General picture problems
• Check the antenna/cable connections (- Chapter 2).
• Press + on the remote control or TV and select a valid
video input source (- page 51). If no device is
connected to a particular input on the TV, no picture will
display when you select that particular input source. For
device connection details, see Chapter 2.
• Antenna reception may be poor. Use a highly directional
outdoor antenna (if applicable).
• The station may have broadcast difficulties. Try another
channel.
• Adjust the picture qualities (- page 60).
• If you are using a VCR, make sure L on the remote
control is set correctly (- page 28).
• Do not connect both a standard video cable and an
S-video cable to the VIDEO 1 input at the same time
(- page 16).
Noisy picture
• If you are watching an analog channel (off-air broadcast
or Cable TV), you can set the CableClear®/DNR
feature to AUTO to reduce visible interference in the TV
picture (- page 80).
Video Input Selection problems
• If the Input Selection window does not appear when
you press + on the remote control or TV, press + a
second time, which will change to the next video input
source and display the Input Selection window.
Cannot view external signals or channel 3 or 4
• If you cannot view signals from external devices
connected to VIDEO 1, VIDEO 2, ColorStream®,
HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3, PC, or from channels 3 or 4,
make sure the Input Lock is set to Off (- page 70).
Poor color or no color
• The station may have broadcast difficulties. Try another
channel.
• Adjust the Tint and/or Color (- page 61).
POP problems
• If you label all of the inputs as “Hide,” the POP feature
will be disabled. If you then attempt to access the POP
feature, the message “Not Available” will appear (page 59).
Poor composite or S-video picture
• If the TV is connected to an external A/V device (e.g.,
DVD player, video game system, set-top box, etc.) try
using a ColorStream or HDMI video connection
instead.
• If you connect an S-video cable, be sure to disconnect the
standard (composite) video cable. Do not connect both
types of video cable at the same time.
Picture and sound are out of sync
• As with all products that contain a digital display, in rare
instances, when viewing certain content (e.g.. television
broadcasts, video games, DVDs), you may notice that the
sound and picture are slightly out of sync. This
phenomenon can be caused by various factors including,
without limitation, video processing within the TV, video
processing in an attached gaming system, and video
processing or different compression rates used by
broadcasters in their programming. You may want to try
one or more of the following suggestions, which may
help to reduce the effect of this phenomenon:
– If the TV is connected to an A/V receiver that has a
programmable audio delay feature, use this feature to
help synchronize the sound to the picture.
– If you notice this phenomenon only on certain TV
channels, please contact your local broadcast, cable, or
satellite provider to inform them of this issue.
LED indications while in reboot from standby
• When you plug the power cord in, the yellow LED will
blink until the TV enters standby mode, (plugged in but
not powered on). This is normal and is not a sign of
malfunction.

Chapter 9: Troubleshooting
Sound problems
• Check the antenna/cable connections (- Chapter 2).
• The station may have broadcast difficulties. Try another
channel.
• The sound may be muted. Press VOLUME.
• If you hear no sound, try setting the MTS feature to
Stereo mode (- page 64).
• If you are not receiving a second audio program from a
known SAP source, make sure the MTS feature is set to
SAP mode (- page 64).
• If you hear audio that seems “incorrect” for the program
you are watching (such as music or a foreign language),
the SAP mode may be on. Set the MTS feature to Stereo
mode (- page 64).
• When using an external audio amplifier, if you connect
the amplifier to the VARIABLE AUDIO OUT terminals,
the volume of the TV and amplifier must be set above 0
or you will not hear any sound (- page 22).
Closed caption problems
• If the program or video you selected is not closedcaptioned, no captions will display (- page 62).
• If text is not available, a black rectangle may appear.
If this happens, turn off the closed caption feature (page 62).
• A closed-caption signal may not display correctly in the
following situations: a) when a videotape has been
dubbed; b) when the signal reception is weak; or c) when
the signal reception is nonstandard (- page 62).
Remote control problems
• Make sure the remote control is set to the correct device
mode (- page 27).
• Remove all obstructions between the remote control and
the TV.
• The remote control batteries may be dead. Replace the
batteries (- page 26).
• Your TV remote control may not operate certain features
on your external device. Refer to the owner’s manual for
your other device to determine its available features. If
your TV remote control does not operate a specific
feature on another device, use the remote control that
came with the device (- pages 31–39).
• If the TV still does not act as expected, use the Reset
Factory Defaults procedure (- page 49).
No CE-Link operation
• The CE-Link feature is available for Toshiba CE-Link
compatible devices.
• Make sure the HDMI cables with the HDMI Logo
(
) are used.
• When the connected CE-Link device does not work
correctly after you have changed settings of the device,
turn off your TV and unplug the power cord, then plug
and turn on again.
• If several devices are connected, CE-Link feature may
not operate properly.
• Read the instruction manual furnished with the connected
CE-Link device.
Channel tuning problems
• Make sure the remote control is set to the correct device
mode (- page 27).
• The channel may have been erased from the channel
memory by the Channel Add/Delete feature. Add the
channel to the channel memory (- page 45).
• The channel may be blocked by the Channels Block
feature. Unblock the channel (- page 69).
• If you are unable to tune digital channels, check the
antenna configuration (- page 44). If you are still
unable to tune digital channels, clear all channels from
the channel list (- page 45) and reprogram channels
into the channel memory (- page 44). If you are still
unable to tune digital channels, use the Reset Factory
Defaults procedure (- page 49). Also see “TV stops
responding to controls” and “Other problems”
(- page 104).
Rating blocking (V-Chip) problems
• If you forget your PIN code: While the PIN code entering
screen is displayed, press E four times within 5
seconds. The PIN code you previously stored will be
cleared (- page 67).
• The V-Chip feature is available for the U.S. V-Chip
system only (- page 68).
HDMI problems
For HDMI cables
• Make sure the HDMI cables with the HDMI Logo
(
) are used (- page 20).
For HDMI Deep Color™
• You should need to use Category 2 cable to work
properly. Normal HDMI cable or DVI cable may not
work with this option (- page 75).
For Legacy HDMI source
• Some of legacy HDMI sources may not work properly
with latest HDMI TV products, due to new standard
adoption. Please try to set Off the HDMI settings(LipSync Latency, Deep Color, xvYCC). Your legacy HDMI
source should operate properly with this TV products
(- page 75).

Make sure you connected your home network correctly
(- pages 24 and 25) and set up the network address
properly (- Chapter 8).
• The MP3 files exceed the specified limits (- “Media
specifications” in Chapter 8).
Title or artist name is not displayed
• The MP3 file does not contain valid meta-data or does not
meet supported specifications (- “Media
specifications” in Chapter 8).
The Audio Player takes almost a minute to start
• Sufficient network band-width is not available. Turn off
any other file sharing programs, network-based games, or
other network-intensive operations while the Audio
Player is playing.
• The shared folder has too many files or sub-folders. If the
shared folder on the networked PC contains a large
number of files or nested directories, it may take over a
minute for the Audio Player to locate all playable files.
The File is displayed but is always skipped
• The file is not a valid or supported MP3 file.
Some files in the shared folder are not played
• Only the first 200 MP3 files found will be played. Folders
nested 10 or more levels below the shared folder are not
searched.
The Audio Player plays (progress bar and animation
change) but audio is not heard
• The volume level is not high enough or TV is muted.

Disclaimer and Limitation of Remedy
TO THE EXTENT NOT PRECLUDED BY LAW, ALL OTHER EXPRESS
AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS AND REPRESENTATIONS
FOR THIS TELEVISION, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES,
CONDITIONS AND REPRESENTATIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE HEREBY DISCLAIMED
AND EXCLUDED. IF THE APPLICABLE LAW, STATUTORY OR
OTHERWISE, PRECLUDES THE EXCLUSION OF ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS AND REPRESENTATIONS THEN SUCH
IMPLIED WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS AND REPRESENTATIONS ARE
OTHERWISE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE TERM OF THIS
EXPRESS WRITTEN LIMITED WARRANTY. TO THE EXTENT NOT
PRECLUDED BY LAW, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, THIS WRITTEN
WARRANTY SUPERCEDES AND SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY
OTHER WARRANTY, CONDITION OR REPRESENTATION NOT
STATED IN THIS WARRANTY, WHETHER MADE BY TCL, TOSHIBA
CORPORATION, THEIR AFFILIATES, ADRs AND ASPs AND WHETHER
MADE ORALLY OR IN WRITING (INCLUDING ANY STATEMENT IN
ANY BROCHURE, PRESS RELEASE, ANNOUNCEMENT,
ADVERTISEMENT, POINT OF SALE DISPLAY, ETC.).
YOU MUST READ AND FOLLOW ALL SET-UP AND USAGE
INSTRUCTIONS IN THE APPLICABLE USER GUIDES AND/OR
MANUALS. IF YOU FAIL TO DO SO, THIS TELEVISION MAY NOT
FUNCTION PROPERLY AND YOU MAY SUFFER DAMAGE. THIS
WARRANTY WILL NOT COVER ANY SERVICE THAT IS REQUIRED, IN
PART OR IN WHOLE, AS A RESULT OF ANY FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE
SET-UP AND USAGE INSTRUCTIONS. THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT
APPLY AND SHALL BE VOID AND UNENFORCEABLE IF THE
TELEVISION IS OPENED, SERVICED, OR REPAIRED BY PERSONS
OTHER THAN THOSE AUTHORIZED BY TCL TO SERVICE OR REPAIR
THE TELEVISION.
IF THE TELEVISION FAILS TO WORK AS WARRANTED ABOVE, YOUR
SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY SHALL BE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT
OF THE DEFECTIVE PART. IN NO EVENT WILL TCL, TOSHIBA
CORPORATION, THEIR AFFILIATES, ADRs OR ASPs (THE “RELATED
PARTIES”) BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY
DAMAGES, MONEY, REIMBURSEMENT, COSTS OR EXPENSES. THIS
LIMITATION APPLIES TO DAMAGES, MONEY, REIMBURSEMENT,
COSTS OR EXPENSES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER INCLUDING ANY
DIRECT OR INDIRECT DAMAGES, DAMAGE TO PROPERTY OR
PERSON, LOST PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS, INCONVENIENCE OR
OTHER SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY, BREACH OF
CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), UNDER A STATUTE OR
UNDER ANY OTHER LAW OR FORM OR ACTION, OR WHETHER
ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE TELEVISION,
EVEN IF ANY OF THE RELATED PARTIES HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES OR OF ANY CLAIM BY ANY OTHER
PARTY.
No person, agent, distributor, dealer or company is authorized to change,
modify or extend the terms of these warranties in any manner whatsoever.
Arbitration and Dispute Resolution
To the extent not precluded by law, any claim, dispute, controversy or
disagreement (whether for breach of warranty, breach of contract, tort
(including negligence), under a statute or under any other law or form of
action) against any of the Related Parties arising out of, or otherwise
relating to: (i) this warranty; (ii) the Television; (iii) any oral or written
representations, statements, brochures, press releases, advertising,
announcement, point of sale display, or promotional material relating to
the Television; (iv) the relationships that result from this warranty, (the
foregoing claims, disputes controversies and disagreements are
collectively referred to as the “Dispute”), shall be referred to and resolved
by final and binding arbitration (to the exclusion of the courts). To the
extent not precluded by law, you agree to waive any right that you may
have to commence or participate in any representative or class
proceeding against the Related Parties relating to any Dispute. If and
where applicable and to the extent not precluded by law, you further
agree to opt out of any such representative or class proceedings.
Arbitration of any Dispute will be conducted in the forum and in the
manner as agreed to between you and TCL. Failing such agreement, the
arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator pursuant to the laws and
rules relating to arbitration generally in force in the jurisdiction in which you
reside at the time that the Dispute arises. To the extent not precluded by
law, no claim, dispute, controversy or disagreement of any other person
may be joined or combined with any Dispute by you, without the prior
written consent of TCL.
Critical Applications
The Television you have purchased is not designed for any “critical
applications.” “Critical applications” means life support systems, medical
applications, connections to implanted medical devices, commercial
transportation, nuclear facilities or systems or any other applications
where Television failure could lead to injury to persons or loss of life or
catastrophic property damage.
IF THE CUSTOMER USES THE TELEVISION IN ANY CRITICAL
APPLICATION, THE CUSTOMER - AND NOT TCL, ITS AFFILIATES, ADRs
OR ASPs - ASSUME SOLE AND FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR SUCH USE.
TCL RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO SERVICE ANY TELEVISION
USED IN A CRITICAL APPLICATION. TCL, ITS AFFILIATES, ADRs AND
ASPs HEREBY DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY, DAMAGES AND
CONSEQUENCES ARISING OUT OF THE SERVICE OR REFUSAL TO
SERVICE SUCH TELEVISION AND FURTHER DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL
LIABILITY, CONSEQUENCES AND DAMAGES THAT MAY ARISE OR
RESULT FROM THE USE OF THE TELEVISION IN ANY CRITICAL
APPLICATIONS.
General Provisions
If and to the extent that any provision of this limited warranty should
generally be found to be unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall
be severed from the warranty and deemed not to form part of the warranty.
The remaining provisions of this warranty shall be and remain valid and
enforceable. If and to the extent that any provision of this limited warranty
as it relates to any of the Related Parties is found to be invalid or
unenforceable in respect of that party (the “Excluded Party”), the
Excluded Party shall be deemed to be severed or excluded from the
provision, and the provision shall remain valid, enforceable and
applicable in respect of the other or remaining Related Parties.
To the extent permitted by law, this limited warranty shall be governed and
construed in accordance with the laws of Ontario.
If there is any inconsistency between this limited warranty, on the one
hand, and any statement in the packaging of the Television or in any other
document enclosed with, or used in the context of the promotion or sale
of, the Television, on the other hand, the provisions of this limited warranty
shall prevail.
