persons.
CAUTION
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
DO NOT OPEN
The exclamation point within
a triangle is intended to
tell the user that important
operating and servicing
instructions are in the papers
with the appliance.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not remove cover or back.
No user-serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.
Note to CATV System Installer
This reminder is provided to direct the CATV system installer’s attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides guidelines for
proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building, as
close to the point of cable entry as practical.
Secure ventilation
Slots and openings in the cabinet and the back or bottom are provided for ventilation, and to ensure reliable operation of the LCD
TV and to protect it from overheating. These openings must not be blocked or covered. There should be at least 10 cm of space
from these openings. The openings should never be blocked by placing the LCD TV on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface.
This LCD TV should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase unless proper ventilation is provided.

TV to normal operation.
e.
If the LCD TV has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
f.
When the LCD TV exhibits a distinct change in performance - this indicates a need for service.
21) When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician uses replacement parts specified by the manufacturer
that have the same characteristics as the original parts. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other
hazards.
22) WARNING

HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) allows you to enjoy high-definition digital images and high-quality sound by connecting
the TV unit and the equipment.
HDMI-compatible equipment (*1) with an HDMI or DVI output terminal, such as a set-top box or a DVD player, can be connected
to the HDMI connector using an HDMI compliant (fully wired) cable.
HDMI is the world’s first complete digital consumer AV interface complying with a non-compression standard.
If the external equipment has only a DVI output, connect to the HDMI terminal via a DVI to HDMI adapter cable (*2).
When the DVI to HDMI adapter cable is used, connect the audio cable to the audio input terminal.
Audio settings can be made on the “HDMI in” menu screen. (p. 14-15)

FAQ
Maintenance
First, unplug the Power cord plug from the wall outlet.
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, lint-free cloth.
If the surface is particularly dirty, soak a soft, lint-free cloth in a weak detergent solution 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.

During the “Labor” warranty period there will be no charge for labor. During the “Parts” warranty period, there will
be no charge for parts. You must carry-in or mail-in your product during the warranty period. If non-rechargeable

not sold “as is”. A purchase receipt or other proof of the original purchase date is required for warranty service.
In-Home service requires clear, complete and easy access to the product by the authorized servicer and does
not include removal or re-installation of an installed product. It is possible that certain in-home repairs will not be
completed in-home, but will require that the product, or parts of the product, be removed for shop diagnosis and/or
repair and then returned.
Limited Warranty Limits And Exclusions
This warranty ONLY COVERS failures due to defects in materials or workmanship, and DOES NOT COVER normal

office, restaurant, or other business), rental use of the product, service by anyone other than a Factory Servicenter or
other Authorized Servicer, or damage that is attributable to acts of God.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, or limitations on how
long an implied warranty lasts, so the exclusions may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have others rights which vary from state to state. If a
problem with this product develops during or after the warranty period, you may contact your dealer or Servicenter.
