Important Safety Precautions
• Cleaning — Unplug the AC cord
from the AC outlet before cleaning
the product. Use a damp cloth to
clean the product. Do not use liquid
cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
• Water and moisture — Do not use
the product near water, such as
bathtub, washbasin, kitchen sink,
laundry tub, swimming pool and in a
wet basement.
• Do not place vases or any other
water-filled containers on this product.
The water may spill onto the product
causing fire or electric shock.
• Stand — Do not place the product
on an unstable cart, stand, tripod
or table. Doing so can cause the
product to fall, resulting in serious
personal injuries as well as damage
to the product. Use only a cart,
stand, tripod, bracket or table
recommended by the manufacturer
or sold with the product. When
mounting the product on a wall, be
sure to follow the manufacturer’s
instructions. Use only the mounting
hardware recommended by the
manufacturer.
• When relocating the product
placed on a cart, it must be moved
with utmost care. Sudden stops,
excessive force and uneven floor
surface can cause the product to fall
from the cart.
• Ventilation — The vents and other
openings in the cabinet are designed
for ventilation. Do not cover or block
these vents and openings since
insufficient ventilation can cause
overheating and/or shorten the life
of the product. Do not place the
product on a bed, sofa, rug or other
similar surface, since they can block
ventilation openings. This product is
not designed for built-in installation;
do not place the product in an
enclosed place such as a bookcase
or rack, unless proper ventilation
is provided or the manufacturer’s
instructions are followed.
• The LCD panel used in this product
is made of glass. Therefore, it can
break when the product is struck
forcefully or with a sharp object. If
the LCD panel is broken, be careful
not to be injured by broken glass.
• Heat sources — Keep the product
away from heat sources such as
radiators, heaters, stoves and other
heat-generating products (including
amplifiers)
• To prevent fire, never place any type
of candle or naked flames on the
top or near the TV set.
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do
not place the AC power cord under
the TV set or other heavy items.
• Do not place heavy objects on this
product or stand on it. Doing so
could cause injury if the product
overturns. Take special care near
children and pets.
The LCD panel is a very high technology product
with 2,073,600 thin film transistors, giving you fine
picture details.
Due to the very large number of pixels, occasionally
a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen
as a fixed point of blue, green or red.
This is within product specifications and does not
constitute a fault.
Precautions when
transporting the TV
Be sure to always carry the TV
by two people holding it with two
hands — one hand on each side
of the TV.
• Do not display a still picture for a long time, as this could
cause an afterimage to remain.
• Install the product on the place where the AC cord can
be unplugged easily from the AC outlet, or from the AC
INPUT terminal on the rear of the product.

Troubleshooting
The problems described below are not always caused by malfunctions. Check the TV again before having the TV
serviced.
Problem
Possible Solution
• No power.
• Check if you pressed POWER on the remote control unit. (See page 13.)
If the indicator on the TV lights up red, press POWER.
• Is the AC cord disconnected? (See page 8.)
• Has the power been turned on? (See page 13.)
• Unit cannot be operated.
• External influences such as lightning, static electricity, etc., may cause improper
operation. In this case, operate the unit after first turning the power off the TV or
unplugging the AC cord and re-plugging it in after 1 or 2 minutes.
• Remote control unit does not
operate.
•
•
•
•
• Picture is cut off.
• Is the image position correct? (See page 34.)
• Are screen mode adjustments such as picture size made correctly? (See pages 29,
30 and 40.)
• Strange colour, light colour, or
dark, or colour misalignment.
•
•
•
•
•
• Power is suddenly turned off.
• The unit's internal temperature has increased.
Remove any objects blocking the vent or clean.
• Check the power control setting. (See pages 27 and 28.)
• Is the sleep timer set? (See page 27.)
• No picture.
• Is the connection to external equipment correct? (See pages 9, 10, 36, 39 and 40.)
• Has the input signal setup been performed correctly after connection? (See page
42.)
• Is the correct input selected? (See page 37.)
• Is the picture adjustment correct? (See pages 32 to 34.)
• Is the antenna connected properly? (See page 8.)
• Is “On” selected in “Audio Only”? (See page 24.)
• No sound.
• Is the volume too low? (See page 18.)
• Make sure that headphones are not connected. (See page 6.)
• The TV sometimes makes a
cracking sound.
• This is not a malfunction. This happens when the cabinet slightly expands and
contracts according to changes in temperature. This does not affect the TV's
performance.
Are batteries inserted with polarity (e, f) aligned? (See page 12.)
Are batteries worn out? (Replace with new batteries.)
Are you using it under strong or fluorescent lighting?
Is a fluorescent light shining on the remote control sensor?
Adjust the picture tone. (See pages 32 to 34.)
Is the room too bright? The picture may look dark in a room that is too bright.
Check the colour system setting. (See pages 20 and 38.)
Check the input signal setting. (See page 42.)
Check the HDMI Setup setting. (See page 36.)
Cautions regarding use in high and low temperature environments
• When the unit is used in a low temperature space (e.g. room, office), the picture may leave trails or appear slightly delayed.
This is not a malfunction, and the unit will recover when the temperature returns to normal.
• Do not leave the unit in a hot or cold location. Also, do not leave the unit in a location exposed to direct sunlight or near a
heater, as this may cause the cabinet to deform and the LCD panel to malfunction.
Storage temperature: f20°C to e60°C.
