Experience an amazing level of multimedia excitement DIGITAL TELEVISION TRANSITION NOTICE This device contains a digital television tuner, so it should receive digital over the air TV programming, with a suitable antenna, after the end of full-power analog TV broadcasting in the United States (as required by law) on February 17, 2009. Some older television receivers, if they rely on a TV antenna, will need a TV Converter to receive over the air digital programming, but should continue to work as before for other purposes (e.g., for watching low-power TV stations still broadcasting in analog, watching pre-recorded movies, or playing video games). When a Converter is used with an older television receiver, a signal splitter might be necessary to continue to receive low-power analog broadcasts via an antenna. For more information, please see www.DTV.gov. For information on the TV Converter program, and on government coupons that may be used toward the purchase of one, see www.dtv2009.gov, or call the NTIA at 1-888-DTV-2009.

Display panel The front of the display panel has been specially treated. Wipe the panel surface gently using only a cleaning cloth or a soft, lintfree cloth. If the surface is particularly dirty, soak a soft, lint-free cloth in diluted mild liquid dish soap (1 part mild liquid dish soap diluted by 100 times the amount of water) and then wring the cloth to remove excess liquid. Use this cloth to wipe the surface of the display panel, then wipe it evenly with a dry cloth of the same type until the surface is dry. Do not scratch or hit the surface of the panel with fingernails or other hard objects. Furthermore, avoid contact with volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents, and thinner; otherwise, the quality of the surface may be adversely affected. Cabinet If the cabinet becomes dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth. If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in a weak mild liquid dish soap and then wring the cloth dry. Use this cloth to wipe the cabinet and then wipe it dry with a dry cloth. Do not allow any mild liquid dish soap to come into direct contact with the surface of the LCD TV. If water droplets get inside the unit, operating problems may result. Avoid contact with volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents, and thinner; otherwise, the quality of the cabinet surface may be adversely affected or the coating may peel off. Furthermore, do not leave it for long periods in contact with articles made from rubber or PVC. Pedestal Cleaning Wipe the surfaces with a soft, dry cloth. If the unit is particularly dirty, clean it using a cloth soaked with water to which a small amount of mild liquid dish soap has been added and then wipe with a dry cloth. Do not use products such as solvents, thinner, or household wax for cleaning, as they can damage the surface coating. (If using a chemically-treated cloth, follow the instructions supplied with the cloth.) Do not attach sticky tape or labels, as they can make the surface of the pedestal dirty. Do not allow long-term contact with rubber, vinyl products, or the like. (Doing so will cause deterioration.) Power cord plug Wipe the plug with a dry cloth at regular intervals. (Moisture and dust can lead to fire or electrical shock.) Care and Cleaning Technical Information FAQs, etc. 51 FAQ Before requesting service or assistance, please follow these simple guides to resolve the problem.
