CHILD SAFETY
PROPER TELEVISION PLACEMENT MATTERS
THE CONSUMER ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY CARES
•
Manufacturers, retailers and the rest of the consumer electronics industry are
committed to making home entertainment safe and enjoyable.
• As you enjoy your television, please note that all televisions - new and old- must be
supported on proper stands or installed according to the manufacturer's
recommendations. Televisions that are inappropriately situated on dressers, bookcases,
shelves, desks, speakers, chests, carts, etc., may fall over, resulting in injury.
TUNE IN TO SAFETY
•
•
•
•
•
•
ALWAYS follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the safe installation of your
television.
ALWAYS read and follow all instructions for proper use of your television.
NEVER allow children to climb on or play on the television or the furniture on which the
television is placed.
NEVER place the television on furniture that can easily be used as steps, such as a chest
of drawers.
ALWAYS install the television where it cannot be pushed, pulled over or knocked down.
ALWAYS route cords and cables connected to the television so that they cannot be
tripped over, pulled or grabbed.
WALL OR CEILING MOUNT YOUR TELEVISION
•
•
•
•
•
ALWAYS contact your retailer about professional installation if you have any doubts
about your ability to safely mount your television.
ALWAYS use a mount that has been recommended by the television manufacturer and
has a safety certification by an independent laboratory (such as UL, CSA, ETL).
ALWAYS follow all instructions supplied by the television and mount manufacturers.
ALWAYS make sure that the wall or ceiling where you are mounting the television is
appropriate. Some mounts are not designed to be mounted to walls and ceilings with
steel studs or cinder block construction. If you are unsure, contact a professional
installer.
Televisions can be heavy. A minimum of two people is required for a wall or ceiling
mount installation.
MOVING AN OLDER TELEVISION TO A NEW PLACE IN YOUR
HOME
•
Many new television buyers move their older CRT televisions into a secondary room
after the purchase of a flat-panel television. Special care should be made in the
placement of older CRT televisions.
• ALWAYS place your older CRT television on furniture that is sturdy and appropriate for
its size and weight.
• NEVER place your older CRT television on a dresser where children may be tempted to
use the drawers to climb.
• ALWAYS make sure your older CRT television does not hang over the edge of your
furniture.

Heed all warnings.
Follow all instructions.
Do not use this apparatus near water.
Clean only with dry cloth.
Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in
accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
Do not install near any heat sources such as
radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus
(including amplifiers) that produce heat.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized
or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two
blades with one wider than the other. A grounding
type plug has two blades and a third grounding
prong. The wide blade or the third prong are
provided for your safety. If the provided plug does
not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the obsolete outlet.
Protect the power cord from being walked on or
pinched particularly at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from
the apparatus.
Only use attachments/accessories specified by the
manufacturer.
Use only with the cart, stand, tripod,
bracket, or table specified by the
manufacturer, or sold with the
apparatus. When a cart is used, use
caution when moving the
cart/apparatus combination to
avoid injury from tip-over.
Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or
when unused for long periods of time.
14 Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Servicing is required when the apparatus has been
damaged in any way, such as power-supply cord
or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or
objects have fallen into the apparatus, the
apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture,
does not operate normally, or has been dropped.
15 The wall plug is the disconnecting device. The
plug must remain readily operable.
16 Remote control batteries should not be exposed
to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire, or the like.
17 The apparatus should not be exposed to dripping
or splashing, and no objects filled with liquids,
such as vases, should be placed on the apparatus.
WARNING
Electric shock hazard
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not
remove any cover or expose the device to rain or
moisture. No user-serviceable parts are inside. Refer
servicing to qualified service technicians.
Lightning
For added protection for your device receiver during a
lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and
unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the
power outlet and disconnect any antenna or cable
system. This helps prevent property damage and
personal injury from lightning and power line surges.
Power lines
An outside antenna system should not be located in
the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric
light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such
power lines or circuits. When installing an outside
antenna system, take extreme care to keep from
touching such power lines or circuits as contact with
them might be fatal.
Handling the LCD panel
• Your TV’s screen is made of glass. Do not drop your
TV or hit, jolt, or press hard against the LCD panel. If
the screen breaks, be careful of broken glass.
• If the LCD panel is broken, make absolutely sure that
you do not touch the liquid in the panel. This may
cause skin inflammation.
• If the liquid gets in your mouth, immediately gargle,
rinse, and consult with your doctor. Also, if the liquid
gets in your eyes or touches your skin, consult with
your doctor after rinsing for at least 15 minutes or
longer in clean water.
Replacement parts
When replacement parts are required, make sure that
the service technician uses replacement parts
specified by the manufacturer that have the same
characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized
substitutions may result in fire, electric shock,
personal injury, or other hazards.
Safety check
After completing any service or repair to this device,
ask the service technician to perform routine safety
checks to determine that your TV is in correct
operating condition.
Sharp LC-32LB261U_14-1218_MAN_V4_ENG.book Page 3 Friday, October 31, 2014 3:01 PM
LC-32LB261U
Power source
Operate your TV only from the type of power source
indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of
the type of power supplied to your home, consult an
electrician or your local power company.
Servicing
These servicing instructions are for use by qualified
service personnel only. To reduce the risk of electric
shock, do not perform any servicing other than that
contained in the operating instructions unless you are
qualified to do so.
CAUTION
Damage requiring service
Unplug this TV from the power outlet and refer
servicing to qualified service personnel under the
following conditions:
• When the power supply cord or plug is damaged or
frayed.
• If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into
your TV.
• If your TV has been exposed to rain or water.
• If your TV does not operate normally by following
the operating instructions. Adjust only those
controls covered by the operating instructions
because incorrect adjustment of other controls may
result in damage and will often require extensive
work by a qualified technician to restore your TV to
its normal operation.
• If your TV has been dropped or damaged in any
way.
• When your TV exhibits a distinct change in
performance.
Outdoor antenna grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to
your TV, make sure that the antenna or cable system is
grounded to provide some protection against voltage
surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70, provides
information with respect to correct grounding of the
mast and supporting structure, grounding of the
lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of
grounding conductors, location of the
antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements for the grounding
electrode.

Note to CATV system installer
Article 820 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA
No. 40 provides guidance for correct grounding.
Specifically, it states that the cable ground must be
connected to the grounding system of the building as
close to the point of cable entry as practical.
Condensation
Moisture will form on the TV if the TV is brought from
cool surroundings into a warm room or if the
temperature of the room rises suddenly. When this
happens, the TV's performance may be impaired. To
prevent this, let the TV stand in its new surroundings
for about an hour before switching it on, or make sure
that the room temperature rises gradually.
Condensation may also form during the summer if
the TV is exposed to the breeze from an air
conditioner. In such cases, change the location of the
TV.
Mobile telephone warning
To avoid interference with your TV picture and sound,
operating problems, or even damage, keep your
cordless and cellular telephones away from the TV.
End of life directives
Your TV may contain materials that are regulated for
environmental reasons. Your TV also contains
materials that can be recycled and reused. To help
protect the environment, contact your local
authorities for information about disposal or recycling
and about finding a recycler in your area before you
dispose of your TV.
Non-active pixels
The LCD panel contains almost 3 million thin film
transistors, which provide exceptionally sharp video
quality. Occasionally, a few non-active pixels may
appear on the screen as a fixed blue, green, or red
point. These non-active pixels do not adversely affect
the performance of your TV, and are not considered
defects.

• If the signal level for a channel is weak, the picture may be distorted.
Adjust the antenna or use a highly directional outdoor or set-top
antenna with a built-in amplifier.
• If the picture quality is good on some channels and poor on others, the
problem may be caused by a poor or weak signal from the broadcaster
or cable TV provider.
• If you connect to cable or satellite TV without a set-top box and
experience poor picture quality, you may need to install a set-top box to
improve signal reception and picture quality. Contact your cable or
satellite TV provider about upgrading to a set-top box.
• Many high-definition (HD) channels upscale standard-definition (SD)
content. The picture displayed on your TV is still displayed as SD, thus
the picture quality will not be as clear or crisp as it would be if the

Programming universal
remote controls
You can operate your Sharp TV with a new or existing
universal remote control.
1 See the table in “Common universal remote
control codes” for common codes. If you have
problems programming your remote or need a
different remote control code, see the instructions
that came with the remote control or check the
remote control manufacturer’s website for the
latest remote control code information.
2 Follow your universal remote control’s instructions
to enter the TV code you found in Step 1.
Tips
• If your universal remote control has a
code search feature, run a code search
to identify a code that matches your
TV. See your universal remote control’s
instructions for details.
• If your universal remote control has a
“Learn” feature, you can manually
program it using the Sharp TV remote
to “teach” the commands one at a
time. See your universal remote
control’s instructions for details.
For additional help and information:
• Visit the remote control manufacturer’s website
• Call technical support for the universal remote
control or cable/satellite company of the
remote/set-top box you are trying to program.
