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 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:
•
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. One size of wall mount does not fit all.
•
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.

Warnings
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.

Installing and removing the stand
DX-L24-10A
• 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.

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 or the Electronic Industries Alliance at www.eia.org 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.
Installing and removing the
stand
You must install your TV into the stand for it to stand upright on a
cabinet or other flat surface. If you intend to mount your TV on a wall or
other vertical surface, you must remove the stand column.
Warning: Before attempting assembly or removal of the stand, unplug
the AC power cord.

Cautions:
Read these instructions thoroughly before attempting this installation.
Make sure that you handle your TV very carefully when attempting
assembly or removal of the stand. If you are not sure of your ability to
do this, or to use the tools necessary to complete this job, refer to a
professional installer or service personnel. The manufacturer is not
responsible for any damages or injuries that occur due to mishandling
or improper assembly.
5 Ground clamps
When using a table or bench as an aid to assembly, make sure that you
place the TV on a soft cushion or covering to prevent accidental
scratching or damage to your TV’s finish.

7 Electric service equipment
The speaker is not intended to support the weight of your TV. Do not move
or handle your TV by the speaker. This can cause damage to your TV
that is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
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.
Installing the stand
To install the stand:
1 Remove the stand from the box and place it on a table or bench.
2 Lay a soft, dry and lint-free cloth on a table and place the TV face
down on the cloth so that your TV is not scratched. Align the
bottom side of the TV with one edge of the table.

all connections are tight and secure.
The external audio/video equipment shown in these illustrations may be
different from your equipment. If you have questions, refer to the user
manual that came with your equipment.
To connect the power:
• Plug the AC cord into an AC power outlet.

To connect an antenna, cable TV, or satellite TV box:
1 Connect one end of a 75 ohm cable (not included) to the RF OUT
jack on the antenna or on the cable or satellite TV box.
Codes for other remote controls are available online at:
www.dynexproducts.com\t-customer_support.aspx
Back of TV
Tips:
• The brand name is often visible on the front of the universal remote
control, and the model number is often visible on the back.
• If your universal remote control isn’t listed on the chart, refer to your
universal remote control’s instructions and try codes for the brands
Orion, Emerson, Memorex, Sansui, Sylvania, or Zenith. You may need
to try several codes before finding a match.
RF coaxial cable (75 ohm)
Antenna, cable TV, or
satellite RF jack
2 Follow your universal remote control’s instructions to enter the
code you found in Step 1.
Tips:
• If your universal remote control has a code search feature, run a code
search to identify a code that matches your TV. See your universal
remote control’s instructions for details.
• If your universal remote control has a “Learn” feature, you can
manually program it using your TV remote to “teach” the commands
one at a time. See your universal remote control’s instructions for
details.
3 If all else fails, you must use a different universal remote control
that can operate both your set-top box and your TV. Five such
remotes are listed on the chart, but many other compatible
models are available in the market.
For more help, call technical support for your universal remote
control or set-top box manufacturer, or call the Dynex Customer
Care Center at 1-800-305-2204.
2 Connect the other end of the cable to the ANT/CABLE IN jack on
the back of your TV.
Notes:
Use a 75 ohm cable to eliminate interference and noise from radio waves.
Do not bundle the 75 ohm cable with the power cord or other cables.
If the antenna is not installed correctly, contact qualified service personnel
to correct the problem.

Digital sub-channels
A digital TV signal transmits more data than an analog signal. This
increase in data provides a better picture and sound with less static and
interference. The increased data capacity also lets broadcasters fit
several channels into the same bandwidth as an analog signal.
Broadcasters may use these sub-channels to transmit a variety of
information, such as weather forecasts, foreign languages, and
commercials. A digital sub-channel is indicated by the main channel
number, followed by a dot, then the sub-channel number. For example,
5.1 indicates sub-channel 1 of main channel 5.

Checking the DTV signal strength
You can check the DTV signal strength to determine if you need to
adjust your antenna or digital cable input. The higher the signal
strength, the less likely you are to experience picture degradation.
Setting parental controls
Parental controls let you prevent your children from watching
inappropriate material on TV. When set, parental controls read the
rating of the program (with some exceptions, such as news and sports)
and deny access to programs that exceed the ratings level you select. To
watch programs that exceed the selected rating, you must enter a
password.
Note: Parental controls are only effective for a TV source.
Setting or changing the password
When you enter the Parental Controls menu for the first time, the
password is not required so that you can specify your own password. We
suggest that you specify your own password as soon as possible.
