CHILD SAFETY
It makes a difference how and where you use
your flat panel display
As you enjoy your new product, keep these
safety tips in mind
The issue
The home theater entertainment experience is a growing trend, and larger TVs are popular
purchases. However, TVs are not always supported on the proper stands or installed
according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. We and the consumer electronics
industry are committed to making home entertainment enjoyable and safe.
TVs that are inappropriately placed on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks, speakers,
chests, or carts may fall over and cause injury.
Tune into safety
•

•
•
•
•
One size of TV stand does not fit all. Use only a TV stand
rated for the weight of your TV.
Carefully read and understand all enclosed instructions for
proper use of this product.
Don’t let children climb on or play with entertainment system
furniture and TVs.
Don’t place TVs on furniture that can easily be used as
steps, such as a crate or chest of drawers.
Remember that children can become excited while watching
a program, especially on a “larger-than-life” TV. Make sure
that you place or install the TV where it cannot be pushed,
pulled over, or knocked down.
Make sure that you route all cords and cables so that they
cannot be pulled or grabbed by curious children.
Wall mounting
If you decide to wall mount your TV, always remember:
•
One size of wall mount does not fit all. Use only a wall mount rated for the weight of your
TV and that has been recommended by this TV manufacturer, listed in this manual, or
otherwise listed by an independent laboratory as suitable for your TV.
•
Follow all instructions supplied by the TV and wall mount manufacturers.
•
If you have any doubts about your ability to safely wall mount your TV, get help from a
professional installer.
•
Make sure that the wall where you are mounting the TV is
appropriate. Some wall mounts are not designed to be mounted
to walls backed with steel studs or cinder blocks. If you are
unsure, ask a professional installer.
•
TVs can be heavy. At least two people are required for safe wall mount installation.

Read these instructions.
Keep these instructions.
Heed all warnings.
Follow all instructions.
Do not use this apparatus near water.
Clean only with dry cloth.
Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance
with the manufacturer's instructions.
Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat
registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers)
that produce heat.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or
grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with
one wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two
blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the
third prong are provided for your safety. If the provided
plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the obsolete outlet.
Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched
particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the
point where they exit from the apparatus.
Only use attachments/accessories specified by the
manufacturer.
Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket,
or table specified by the manufacturer, or sold
with the apparatus. When a cart is used, use
caution when moving the cart/apparatus
combination to avoid injury from tip-over.
Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when
unused for long periods of time.
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing
is required when the apparatus has been damaged in any
way, such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid
has been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus,
the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture, does
not operate normally, or has been dropped.
The wall plug is the disconnecting device. The plug must
remain readily operable.
An apparatus with three-prong, grounding-type plug is a
Class I apparatus which needs to be grounded to prevent
possible electric shock. Make sure that you connect the
Class I apparatus to a grounding-type, three-prong outlet.
Remote control batteries should not be exposed to
excessive heat such as sunshine, fire, or the like.
The apparatus should not be exposed to dripping or
splashing and no objects filled with liquids, such as vases,
should be placed on the apparatus.
Important Safety Instructions
Warning
Electric shock hazard
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not remove any
cover or expose the device to rain or moisture. No
user-serviceable parts are inside. Refer servicing to qualified
service technicians.
Lightning
For added protection for your device receiver during a
lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for
long periods of time, unplug it from the power outlet and
disconnect any antenna or cable system. This helps prevent
property damage and personal injury from lightning and
power line surges.
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.
Handling the LCD panel
• Your TV’s screen is made of glass. Do not drop your TV or
hit, jolt, or press hard against the LCD panel. If the screen
breaks, be careful of broken glass.
• If the LCD panel is broken, make absolutely sure that you
do not touch the liquid in the panel. This may cause skin
inflammation.
• If the liquid gets in your mouth, immediately gargle, rinse,
and consult with your doctor. Also, if the liquid gets in
your eyes or touches your skin, consult with your doctor
after rinsing for at least 15 minutes or longer in clean
water.
Replacement parts
When replacement parts are required, make sure that the
service technician uses replacement parts specified by the
manufacturer that have the same characteristics as the original
part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric
shock, personal injury, or other hazards.
Safety check
After completing any service or repair to this device, ask the
service technician to perform routine safety checks to
determine that your TV is in correct operating condition.
Power source
Operate your TV only from the type of power source indicated
on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power
supplied to your home, consult an electrician or your local
power company.
Servicing
These servicing instructions are for use by qualified service
personnel only. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not
perform any servicing other than that contained in the
operating instructions unless you are qualified to do so.

Important Safety Instructions
DX-26L100A13
Caution
Damage requiring service
Unplug this TV from the power outlet and refer servicing to
qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
• When the power supply cord or plug is damaged or
frayed.
• If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into your
TV.
• If your TV has been exposed to rain or water.
• If your TV does not operate normally by following the
operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are
covered by the operating instructions because incorrect
adjustment of other controls may result in damage and
will often require extensive work by a qualified technician
to restore your TV to its normal operation.
• If your TV has been dropped or damaged in any way.
• When your TV exhibits a distinct change in performance.
Outdoor antenna grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to your TV,
make sure that the antenna or cable system is grounded to
provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up
static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA No. 70, provides information with respect to correct
grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of
the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of the antenna-discharge unit, connection
to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding
electrode.

Note to CATV system installer
Article 820 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 40
provides guidance for correct grounding. Specifically, it states
that the cable ground must be connected to the grounding
system of the building as close to the point of cable entry as
practical.

Condensation
Moisture will form on the TV if the TV is brought from cool
surroundings into a warm room or if the temperature of the
room rises suddenly. When this happens, the TV's performance
may be impaired. To prevent this, let the TV stand in its new
surroundings for about an hour before switching it on, or make
sure that the room temperature rises gradually.
Condensation may also form during the summer if the TV is
exposed to the breeze from an air conditioner. In such cases,
change the location of the TV.
Mobile telephone warning
To avoid interference with your TV picture and sound,
operating problems, or even damage, keep your cordless and
cellular telephones away from the TV.
End of life directives
Your TV contains tin-lead solder and a fluorescent lamp
containing a small amount of mercury. Disposal of these
materials may be regulated for environmental reasons. Your TV
also contains material that can be recycled and reused. For
disposal or recycling information, contact your local authorities
to find a recycler in your area.
Non-active pixels
The LCD panel contains almost 3 million thin film transistors,
which provide exceptionally sharp video quality. Occasionally,
a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen as a fixed
blue, green, or red point. These non-active pixels do not
adversely affect the performance of your TV, and are not
considered defects.

Notes
•
•
•
Your TV should only be operated from the
power source indicated on the label.
Always unplug the AC power cord from the
power outlet when you will not be using your
TV for an extended period of time.
The AC power cord is permanently attached to
the back of your TV. Do not try to pull it out.
•
If the signal level for a channel is weak, the
picture may be distorted. Adjust the antenna or
use a highly directional outdoor or set-top
antenna with a built-in amplifier.
If the picture quality is good on some channels
and poor on others, the problem may be caused
by a poor or weak signal from the broadcaster
or cable TV provider.
If you connect to cable or satellite TV without a
set-top box and experience poor picture quality,
you may need to install a set-top box to improve
signal reception and picture quality. Contact
your cable or satellite TV provider about
upgrading to a set-top box.
Many high-definition (HD) channels upscale
standard-definition (SD) content. The picture
displayed on your TV is still displayed as SD, thus
the picture quality will not be as clear or crisp as
it would be if the content was originally
recorded in HD.

To connect a cable or satellite box using HDMI:
1 Turn off your TV and all connected equipment.
2 Connect the incoming cable from the cable wall jack
to the cable-in jack on the cable or satellite box.
