Introduction

What is a Plasma Display Panel (PDP)?

A plasma display panel is the latest display technology. It is currently the best way to achieve flat panel displays with excellent image quality and large screen sizes, that are easily viewable. The PDP can be thought of as a descendant of the neon lamp and it can be also be viewed as a series of fluorescent lamps.

How does it work?

PDP is an array of cells, known as pixels, which are comprised of 3 sub pixels, corresponding to the colors red, green, and blue.

Gas in a plasma state is used to react with phosphors in each sub-pixel to produce colored light (red, green, or blue). These phosphors are the same types used in Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) devices such as televisions and common computer monitors.

You get the rich, dynamic colors that you expect. Each sub-pixel is individually controlled by advanced electronics to produce over

16 million different colors. All of this means that you get perfect images that are easily viewable in a display that is less than 5 inches thick.

160° - Wide angle range of vision

Your flat panel plasma screen offers an exceptionally broad viewing angle -- over 160 degrees. This means that the display is clear and visible to viewers anywhere in the room who can see the screen.

Wide Screen

The screen of the Plasma Display is so wide that your viewing experience is as if you are in a theater.

Multimedia

Connect your plasma display to a PC and you can use it for conferencing, games, and Internet browsing. The Picture-in-Picture feature allows you to view your PC and video images simultaneously.

Versatile

The light weight and thin size makes it easy to install your plasma display in a variety of locations where conventional TVs will not fit.

The PDP Manufacturing Process: a few minute colored dots may be present on the PDP screen

The PDP (Plasma Display Panel), which is the display device of this product is composed of 0.9 to 2.2 million cells. A few cell defects will normally occur in the PDP manufacturing process. Several tiny, minute colored dots visible on the screen should be acceptable. This also occurs in other PDP manufacturers' products. The tiny dots appearing does not mean that this PDP is defective. Thus a few cell defects are not sufficient cause for the PDP to be exchanged or returned. Our production technology minimizes these cell defects during the manufacture and operation of this product.

In the same way that a fan is used in a PC computer to keep the CPU (Central Processing Unit) cool, the PDP is equipped with cooling fans to cool the Monitor and improve its reliability. Therefore, a certain level of noise could occur while the fans are operating and cooling the PDP.

The fan noise doesn't have any negative effect on the PDP's efficiency or reliability. The noise from these fans is normal during the operation of this product. We hope you understand that a certain level of noise from the cooling fans is acceptable and is not sufficient cause for the PDP to be exchanged or returned.

Operation

Closed captioning is a process which converts the audio portion of a television program into written words which then appear as subtitles on the television screen. Closed captions allow viewers to read the dialogue and narration of television programs.

Using Closed Captions

Captions are the subtitles of the dialogue and narration of television programs. For prerecorded programs, program dialogue can be arranged into captions in advance. Its possible to caption a live program by using a process called real-time captioning, which creates captions instantly. Real-time captioning is normally done by professional reporters using a machine shorthand system and computer for translation into English.

Captioning is an effective system for the hearing-impaired, and it can also aid in teaching language skills.

FOLLOW ME

• The picture at left shows a typical caption.

Caption Tips

• Not all TV broadcasts include closed caption signals.

• Sometimes TV stations broadcast four different caption signals on the same channel. By selecting

CC 1 to CC 2

, you can choose which signal you view.

CC 1

is usually the signal with the captions, while

Another mode

might show demonstration or programming information.

• Your TV might not receive caption signals normally in the following situations.

1. Poor reception conditions are encountered:

IGNITION:

Picture may flutter, drift, suffer from black spots, or horizontal streaking. Usually caused by interference from automobile ignition systems, neon lamps, electrical drills, and other electrical appliances.

GHOSTS:

Ghosts are caused when the TV signal splits and follows two paths. One is the direct path and the other is reflected off tall buildings, hills or other objects.

Changing the direction or position of the antenna may improve reception.

SNOW:

If your receiver is located at the weak, fringe area of a TV signal, your picture may be marred by small dots. It may be necessary to install a special antenna to improve the picture.

2. An old, bad, or illegally recorded tape is being played.

3. Strong, random signals from a car or airplane interfere with the TV signal.

4. The signal from the antenna is weak.

5. The program wasn’t captioned when it was produced, transmitted, or taped.

1. Use the CAPTION button repeatedly to select Caption

Owner’s Manual 43

Programming the Remote

G

The remote control is a multi-brand or universal remote control. It can be programmed to operate most remote-controllable devices of other manufacturers.

Note that the remote control may not control all models of other brands.

1. Test your remote control.

To find out whether your remote control can operate the component without programming, turn on the component such as a VCR and press the corresponding MODE button (VCR) on the remote control, while pointing at the component. Test the POWER and

CH +/- buttons to see if the component responds properly. If not, the remote requires programming to operate the device.

2. Turn on the component to be programmed, then press the corresponding MODE button on the remote control.

3. Press the PIP CH- and MUTE buttons simultaneously, the remote control is ready to be programmed for the code.

4. There are two ways to find the right code for the component.

A. If you press the CH +/- buttons repeatedly, the codes will change one at-a-time. Press the POWER button after each code change. If the right code is found, the device will turn off.

B. Enter a code number using the number buttons on the remote. Programming code numbers for the corresponding component can be found on the following pages. Again, if the code is correct, the device will turn off.

5. Press the MENU button to store the code.

6. Test the remote control functions to see if the component responds properly. If not, repeat from step 2.

Owner’s Manual 47

Maintenance

- Early malfunctions can be prevented. Careful and regular cleaning can extend the amount of time you will have your new TV. Be sure to turn the power off and unplug the power cord before you begin any cleaning.

1. Here’s a great way to keep the dust off your screen for a while. Wet a soft cloth in a mixture of lukewarm water and a little fabric softener or dish washing detergent. Wring the cloth until it’s almost dry, and then use it to wipe the screen.

2. Make sure the excess water is off the screen, and then let it air-dry before you turn on your TV.

To remove dirt or dust, wipe the cabinet with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.

Please be sure not to use a wet cloth.

Extended

Absence

If you expect to leave your TV dormant for a long time (such as a vacation), it’s a good idea to unplug the power cord to protect against possible damage from lightning or power surges.
