Understanding video connections
Warning
To prevent electrical shock, unplug your LCD TV before connecting
any external components. To restart your LCD TV, see “Turning on
the power” on page 10.
Your LCD TV has four types of standard video connections. You should use the best
connection available to get the best display. For example, if your DVD player supports a
component video connection, connect the DVD player to your LCD TV using component
video instead of composite video or S-Video.
Connection Quality
Cable and Connector
Description
Basic
Coaxial (RF). The video and audio signals are
both carried in one cable (the other three
connection types only handle video, and
require separate connections for sound).
Coaxial is the only way to connect an antenna
to your LCD TV.
Good
Composite. The video signal is carried through
a single “pin.” This connection method is the
one that is most commonly found on devices.
Better
S-Video. The video signal is split into two
signals, black-and-white and color. Text
displayed on-screen through this connection
will be noticeably sharper than composite or
coaxial (RF).
Best
Component. The video signal is split into three
signals, two color, and one black-and-white.
Use component video to take advantage of the
superior picture provided by signal sources as
HDTV and DVD.

Understanding viewing features
Your LCD TV features four viewing modes and Picture-in-Picture (PIP) mode. You can
switch viewing modes using the on-screen display (OSD) or the remote control. For more
information on using the OSD, see “Using the on-screen display” on page 31. For
information about using the remote control, see your remote control user guide.
Important
Viewing mode and volume are saved based on input. For example,
you last watched a DVD in widescreen mode and at high volume, and
then watched TV in standard mode and low volume. When you switch
back to DVD input, the viewing mode will return to widescreen and
your volume will be high.
Viewing modes
Viewing Mode
Description
Standard mode. The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is
preserved, so black bars are added to the left and right of the display
image.
Standard TV broadcasts are displayed with a 4:3 aspect ratio. Movies in
4:3 may be referred to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were
originally filmed in 16:9 (widescreen), then were modified to fit a traditional
TV screen (4:3).
Widescreen mode. When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame
movie in this mode, the display image is stretched proportionately to fill
the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.76:1 source) program or movie the
display image fills the TV screen.
If you are watching a widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or
movie, there will still be black bars at the top and bottom.
Panoramic mode. When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame
movie in this mode, the 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is
stretched horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The
center of the image is not stretched.

Viewing Mode
Description
Zoom mode. When watching a widescreen (1.76:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1
source) program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to
fill the width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most
of the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with subtitles.
Picture-in-Picture (PIP) mode
Your LCD TV features PIP mode so you can watch two pictures at the same time. You can
use PIP mode if your PIP video input source is set to TV, AV1, AV2/S, or 480i DVD.
Important
You cannot use HDTV, VGA, DVI, or 480p DVD video as
Picture-in-Picture (PIP) sources.

Important safeguards
Warning
Risk of electric shock - Do not open
To reduce the risk of electric shock, do no remove the back cover.
There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Removing the back cover
voids the warranty.
Have your LCD TV repaired by qualified service personnel only.
Warnings and precautions
44
■
Do not place your hands, face, or objects close to the ventilation openings of your
LCD TV. The top of your LCD TV gets very hot from exhaust air that is released through
the ventilation openings. Burns or personal injuries may occur if you are too close to
the LCD TV. Damage may occur if you place any object near the top of your LCD TV.
■
Disconnect all cables before moving your LCD TV. Moving your LCD TV with its cables
attached may damage the cables and cause fire or electric shock danger.
■
Do not expose your LCD TV to rain or moisture.
■
Keep your LCD TV away from excessive dust, high temperatures, moisture, or direct
sunlight.
■
Use your LCD TV in a well-ventilated area and do not cover the ventilation openings.
■
Do not modify your LCD TV or use an unshielded power cord or video input source
cable, or you may experience excessive interference.
■
Disconnect your LCD TV and unplug the power cord when not used for a long period
of time.
■
If the picture displayed is in any way abnormal, turn off your LCD TV, then disconnect
it from the electrical outlet. Make sure that your video input source cable is connected
correctly, then reconnect your LCD TV to the electrical outlet.
■
Disconnect your LCD TV from the electrical outlet before cleaning or performing
maintenance. Do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners. Use only a slightly damp cloth for
cleaning.
■
Do not place your LCD TV on an unstable cart, stand, or table. Your LCD TV may fall,
causing serious damage.
■
Do not place your LCD TV on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surfaces.
■
Never place your LCD TV near or over a radiator or heat source.
■
Do not install your LCD TV in an enclosed area unless correct ventilation is provided.
■
Your LCD TV should be operated from the type of power source indicated on the label.
If the type of available power is unknown, consult your electrician or local power
company.
www.gateway.com
■
Your LCD TV is equipped with a 3-pin grounded plug. The plug will only fit into a
grounded power outlet. This is a safety feature. If you cannot plug the power cord into
the outlet, contact your electrician. Do not alter the plug because this will defeat the
safety feature.
■
Do not rest objects on the power cord and avoid placing the power cord near high traffic
areas.
■
Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords because this can result in a risk of
fire or electric shock.
■
Unplug your LCD TV and contact qualified service personnel if:
■
The power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
■
Liquid has been spilled into your LCD TV.
■
Your LCD TV has been exposed to water or moisture.
■
Your LCD TV does not operate normally when the operating instructions are
followed. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions.
Incorrect adjustment of other controls may result in damage which often requires
extensive work by a qualified technician to restore your LCD TV to normal
operation.
■
Your LCD TV has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning the screen
■
Do not use substances such as glass cleaners, solvents, and thinners.
■
The screen of your LCD TV has been specially treated. Wipe the surface gently using
only a cleaning cloth or a soft, lint-free cloth.
■
If the surface is particular dirty, use a soft cloth and water to clean the screen. Squirt
a little water on the cloth (never directly on the screen), then wipe the screen with the
cloth.
Warning
The screen of your LCD TV is made of specially coated glass and
can be scratched or damaged by abrasive or ammonia-based window
cleaners.
Scratches on the bezel or glass are not covered by your warranty.
■
Do not scratch or hit the surface of the screen with your fingers or any hard objects.
www.gateway.com
45
Cleaning the exterior
■
Your LCD TV is cooled by air circulated through the vents on the case, so keep the vents
free of dust. With your LCD TV turned off and unplugged, brush the dust away from
the vents with a damp cloth. Be careful not to drip any water into the vents. Do not
attempt to clean dust from the inside of your LCD TV.
■
Do not use abrasive or solvent cleaners because they can damage the finish on
components.
■
Do not allow any excessive water or moisture to come into contact with the surface
of your LCD TV. If water or moisture gets inside your LCD TV, operating problems and
electrical and shock hazards may result.
■
Do not scratch or hit the cabinet with your fingers or any hard objects.
■
Do not place articles made from rubber or PVC near the cabinet for any extended periods
of time.

Television antenna connectors protection (for systems
fitted with TV/cable TV tuner cards)
External television antenna grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is to be connected to your Gateway PC, make sure that the antenna or
cable system is electrically grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges and static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPSA 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.
Lightning protection
For added protection of any Gateway product during a lightning storm or when it is left unattended or unused
for long periods of time, unplug the product from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system.

Power lines
Do not locate the antenna near overhead light or power circuits, or where it could fall into such power lines or
circuits.
Warning
When installing or realigning an outside antenna system, extreme
care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or
circuits. Contact with them could be fatal.
