LCD COLOUR TELEVISION
• 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.
OPERATION MANUAL
• 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

• 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.
Operation manual
• 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.
Stand unit
• The LCD panel is a very high technology product with 1,049,088 pixels, 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.
Stand base
• Precautions when transporting the TV
When transporting the TV, never carry it by holding or otherwise putting pressure onto the display. Be sure to always carry
the TV by two people holding it with two hands — one hand on each side of the TV.
Screws (g 4)
• 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.

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.
Repeat steps 1 to 2 in Setting a Password. (See pages 10 to 11.)
