Important Safeguards
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 plasma TV repaired by qualified service
personnel only.
Warnings and precautions
■
Do not place your hands, face, or objects close to the ventilation openings
of your plasma TV. The top of your plasma 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 plasma TV. Damage may occur
if you place any object near the top of your plasma TV.
■
Disconnect all cables before moving your plasma TV. Moving your
plasma TV with its cables attached may damage the cables and cause fire
or electric shock danger.
■
Do not expose your plasma TV to rain or moisture.
■
Keep your plasma TV away from excessive dust, high temperatures,
moisture, or direct sunlight.
■
Use your plasma TV in a well-ventilated area and do not cover the
ventilation openings.
■
Do not modify your plasma TV or use an unshielded power cord or video
input source cable, or you may experience excessive interference.
■
Disconnect your plasma 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 plasma TV,
then disconnect it from the electrical outlet. Make sure that your video
input source cable is connected correctly, then reconnect your plasma TV
to the electrical outlet.
■
Disconnect your plasma 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 plasma TV on an unstable cart, stand, or table. Your

Chapter 1: Introducing Your Gateway Plasma TV
■
Do not place your plasma TV on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surfaces.
■
Never place your plasma TV near or over a radiator or heat source.
■
Do not install your plasma TV in an enclosed area unless correct
ventilation is provided.
■
Your plasma 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.
■
Your plasma 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 plasma TV and contact qualified service personnel if:
■
The power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
■
Liquid has been spilled into your plasma TV.
■
Your plasma TV has been exposed to water or moisture.
■
Your plasma 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 plasma TV to normal operation.
■
Your plasma TV has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
Avoid image burn-in
4
■
Displaying the same stationary images over an extended period of time,
such as a black bar, stock ticker, video game, or a shopping channel logo,
can leave a permanent ghost image (burn-in). Avoid burn-in by mixing
your viewing patterns. Do not show the same stationary image for more
than 15% of your total viewing time in any one week.
■
Your warranty does NOT cover screen burn-in.

Chapter 2: Connecting Components
Understanding video connections
Your plasma 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 plasma 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 plasma 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 then 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
progressive DVD.

Chapter 4: Maintenance and Troubleshooting
Cleaning and maintenance
Cleaning the screen
■
Do not use substances such as glass cleaners, solvents, and thinners.
■
The screen of your plasma 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 plasma 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.
Cleaning the exterior
44
■
Your plasma TV is cooled by air circulated through the vents on the case,
so keep the vents free of dust. With your plasma 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 plasma 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 plasma TV. If water or moisture gets inside your
plasma 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.
www.gateway.com
09359.book Page 45 Wednesday, July 30, 2003 9:01 AM
Troubleshooting
Avoiding image burn-in
■
Displaying the same stationary images over an extended period of time,
such as a black bar, stock ticker, video game, or a shopping channel logo,
can leave a permanent ghost image (burn-in). Avoid burn-in by mixing
your viewing patterns. Do not show the same stationary image for more
than 15% of your total viewing time in any one week.
■
Your warranty does NOT cover screen burn-in.
Troubleshooting
Use the following information to solve common problems.
You cannot see a picture
■
Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a grounded electrical outlet.
■
Make sure that the main power switch and power button are turned on.
■
Make sure that the selected input source is connected to a working input
source.
■
If your plasma TV is connected to your computer in RGB mode, press any
key on your keyboard to “wake” your computer.
You see a distorted picture or hear unusual sound
■
You may be getting interference from electrical appliances, cars,
motorcycles, or fluorescent lights. Try moving your plasma TV to another
location.
The color is abnormal
■
Make sure that the input source cable is connected securely and correctly
to the back of your plasma TV.
The picture has abnormal patterns
■
Make sure that the input source cable is attached securely and correctly
to the back of your plasma TV.
■
Make sure that the video input source is within the range of your
plasma TV. Compare the video input source’s specifications with your
plasma TV specifications.

Chapter 4: Maintenance and Troubleshooting
The display image does not cover the entire screen
■
If you are using RGB mode, make sure that H-WIDTH and V-SIZE in the
OSD are set correctly.
■
If you are using TV, AV1, AV2, or component with 480i input, use the
SCREEN WIDTH or WIDE button on the remote control to scroll through
various screen modes.
You can see a picture but you cannot hear sound
■
Make sure that the volume is not turned down.
■
Make sure that the sound is not muted.
■
Make sure that your audio input source cables are connected securely and
correctly.
The monitor has pixels that are always dark
■
Your plasma TV is manufactured using an extremely high level of precision
technology. However, sometimes some pixels of your plasma TV may not
display. Pixel defects within industry specifications are inherent to this
type of product and do not constitute a defective product.
An image remains on the screen even after you turn off your
plasma TV
■
A still image may have been displayed for an extended period of time
causing burn-in. For more information about burn-in, see page 41.
You see “noise” or “trash” on the screen
■
When your plasma TV’s digital capabilities exceed a digital broadcast
signal, the signal is up-converted (increased) to match your plasma TV’s
display capabilities. Up-converting can cause noise or trash.
Screen brightness is diminished
■
46
Video display devices experience degradation of brightness over the life of
the device. Normal brightness degradation is not covered by your warranty.
