IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Caring for the front panel
• Turn off the main power and unplug the AC cord from the GFI wall outlet before handling.
• Gently wipe the surface of the front panel with a soft cloth (cotton, flannel, etc.).
To protect the front panel, do not use a dirty cloth, liquid cleaners, or a chemical cloth (wet/dry
sheet type cloth, etc.). This may damage the surface of the front panel.
• Wiping with a hard cloth or using strong force may scratch the surface of the front panel.
• Use a soft damp cloth to gently wipe the front panel when it is really dirty.
(It may scratch the surface of the front panel when wiped strongly.)
• If the front panel is dusty, use an anti-static brush, which is commercially available, to clean it.
• To avoid scratching the frame or screen, please use a soft, lint free cloth for cleaning.
CHILD SAFETY:
It Makes A Difference How and Where You Use Your Flat Panel Display
Congratulations on your purchase! As you enjoy your new product, please keep these safety tips in mind:
THE ISSUE
• The home theater entertainment experience is a growing trend and larger flat panel displays
are popular purchases. However, flat panel displays are not always supported on the proper
stands or installed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
• Flat panel displays that are inappropriately situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks,
speakers, chests or carts may fall over and cause injury.
THIS MANUFACTURER CARES!
• The consumer electronics industry is committed to making home entertainment enjoyable
and safe.
TUNE INTO SAFETY
• One size does NOT fit all. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the safe installation
and use of your flat panel display.
• Carefully read and understand all enclosed instructions for proper use of this product.
• Don’t allow children to climb on or play with furniture and television sets.
• Don’t place flat panel displays on furniture that can easily be used as steps, such as a chest
of drawers.
• Remember that children can become excited while watching a program, especially on a
“larger than life” flat panel display. Care should be taken to place or install the display where it
cannot be pushed, pulled over, or knocked down.
• Care should be taken to route all cords and cables connected to the flat panel display so that
they cannot be pulled or grabbed by curious children.
WALL MOUNTING: IF YOU DECIDE TO WALL MOUNT YOUR FLAT PANEL DISPLAY, ALWAYS:
• Use a mount that has been recommended by the display manufacturer and/or listed by an independent laboratory (such
as UL, CSA, ETL).
• Follow all instructions supplied by the display and wall mount manufacturers.
• If you have any doubts about your ability to safely install your flat panel display, contact your retailer about professional
installation.
• Make sure that the wall where you are mounting the display is appropriate. Some wall mounts are not designed to be
mounted to walls with steel studs or old cinder block construction. If you are unsure, contact a professional installer.
• A minimum of two people are required for installation. Flat panel displays can be heavy.
Note: CEA is the preeminent trade association promoting growth in the $161 billion U.S.
consumer electronics industry. More than 2,200 companies enjoy the benefits of CEA
membership, including legislative advocacy, market research, technical training and

Choose a Location for the TV
Important: The TV must be installed at least 5 feet from pool, spa, or other body of water.
The TV should be installed so the screen is not facing direct sunlight, or can be easily turned away from direct
sunlight. Ideal placement is in an area where the TV is
Afternoon
shaded by trees, landscape and/or structures, or under
a patio cover or gazebo. Remember that the position of
Sunrise
Sunset
the sun changes during the day, as seen in the drawing
on the right. This means that the quality of the picture
will change during the day. If you intend to install the
TV in areas where direct sunlight will reach it, it’s best
to position the TV for optimum performance during the
time of day when you do most of your TV watching. If
the sun shines directly on the screen for long periods
of time, dark areas may develop on the screen. This is
a normal reaction for the LED panel, and will not cause
damage to the screen. Either turn the screen away from
the sun, or apply shade to the TV, and the dark areas
will quickly disappear.

HORIZONTAL TERMINAL PORTS
1. HDMI 2 - Use this port for Integrated Internet Streaming Devices
Connects to devices that use HDMI cables such as Blu-ray or HD DVD/Blu-ray player or HD cable / satellite settop box. This connection port receives pure digital audio and high definition signal through one single cable. This
port also can accept a HDCP video device for video or PC for monitor display usage. Use the SOURCE button to
select HDMI2 on your MAIN SOURCE to view this connection.
Please note: when using HDMI, your sound signal must be PCM for the TV to decode digital audio. When using this
source for PC display, you must connect the audio cable to VGA Stereo Input for audio.
1a. HDMI 2 extension
2. HDMI 1 - Same as HDMI 2
Please note: This port does not support MHL devices.
3. VGA - This connection port connects to a PC for video using VGA cable. Be sure to connect your audio cable to
the VGA Stereo input if you want sound out of the VGA video source. Use the SOURCE button to select VGA on
your MAIN SOURCE to view this connection.
4. PC Audio IN - This connection port is for people who want to provide audio to the TV when using a PC or a DVI
video device. Use a 3.5mm mini-jack audio cable (headphone jack) to provide audio for a HDCP enabled DVI
video device or PCs with VGA or DVI connection.
5. ATSC/NTSC – This connection is for digital or analog cable without the cable box or over-the-airwave antennas.
The tuner is a hybrid tuner that tunes to both analog and digital channels. This connection uses coaxial RF cable.
For over- the airwave digital stations please check http://www.antennaweb.org.
6. USB - The USB and high speed serial port allows viewers access to files stored on a USB memory device. See
“Using USB” Sections for further details.
7. Digital Audio Out - This type of jack is used for the digital audio inputs and/or outputs on A/V components such
as receivers, CD players, DVD players, and more. Coaxial digital jacks are also sometimes found on higher-end
PC soundcards for digital audio input and output.
8. Headphones Out - Use a 3.5 mm mini-jack for use with standard headphones.

9. RS-232C - Long established standard connection (“C” is the current version) that describes the physical
interface and protocol for relatively slow data communications between computers and related devices.
10. AV Audio (L/R) Out / SkyVue Speakerbar - AV audio outputs are the standard means of passing analog line-level (or “preamp-level”) audio signals between components. AV or RCA jacks are commonly found on most types of
A/V gear: receivers, CD players, turntables, MiniDisc recorders, cassette decks, VCRs, DVD players, and more.
11. Component Video Jacks -This 3-cable connection allows the chrominance (color) and luminance (brightness)
portions of a video signal to be processed separately. Component video improves color accuracy further by splitting the chrominance signal into two portions.
12. Composite Video In – The composite video input uses a single standard RCA-style jack to pass video signals. This type of connection combines chrominance and luminance information, sending it along a single cable.
Though capable of delivering a high-quality picture, composite video is not as accurate as component video.
13. Composite Audio In - Used in accompanyment with composite Video and component video jacks, AV audio in
(L/R) delivers analog sound from gaming consoles, dvd players, and VCRs.
14. HDMI 3 - Same as HDMI 2
Please note: This port does not support MHL devices.

tion. Check your video card’s maximum resolution, and use that setting.
Picture is distorted or
has an abnormal sound
This might be from interference from large electrical appliances, cars, motorcycles or
fluorescent lights. If the TV is close to the wall, try moving the TV to another location to see
if the problem still occurs.
Picture does not cover
the entire screen
If you are using HDMI or a TV digital channel, use the Aspect button to switch to 16:9
format. If you are using VGA, use the computer’s video controls to adjust the image to the
screen. Note: If you are watching regular 4:3 TV or 4:3 signals from a VCR or DVD player
in 480i resolution, use the Aspect button to switch to 16:9 in order to fill up the screen.
However, this feature will distort the picture.
Picture quality is very
poor
For best image quality, view HD widescreen programs. If HD content is not available, use a
digital source (DVD or Blu-ray player, digital satellite or digital cable box). Standard 480i TV
programs will be noticeably inferior to HD quality.
Some pixels are always
displaying the same
color
SkyVue Outdoor TV’s LED screens are manufactured to rigorous standards to maintain
optimal viewing. However, the LED screen may have minor defects that appear as a small
bright or dark pixel. This is common to all LED screens used in display and television
products, and is not specific to SkyVue Outdoor TV’s. For more information, see SkyVue
Outdoor TV’s’s Pixel Quality Policy in this manual.
Switching a channel
or source changes the
volume
Different channels and inputs sometimes have this effect because the channel signal’s
volume is pre-set.
There is noise or trash
pixels on the screen
When your TV’s resolution is higher than the digital channel’s broadcast resolution, the
signal is up-converted to match your TV’s resolution. Upconverting can cause this kind of
effect.
Tips for high-definition
users
The TV is an ideal platform for viewing high-definition content. The best image quality can
be achieved by HDMI, YPbPr (component), then VGA. However, due to variances in broadcast practices, it is possible that some image distortion may occur.
Tips for letterbox content users
Letterbox (widescreen) versions of DVD movies are most commonly formatted for standard 4:3 TVs. The TV has the capability of expanding this content so the entire screen is
filled, at the expense of the image proportion. To use this function, press the Aspect button
on the remote control and cycle among the available options.
The TV turns off automatically
The TV features a power-saving mode which will automatically turn off the TV if there is
no signal provided for 15 minutes.

Care of SkyVue Outdoor TV
Caring for the LED Panel:
With your TV turned off, gently wipe the surface of the display panel with a damp (with water) microfiber, cotton or
flannel cloth. (Do not use tissues, rags, sponges or paper towels because they may damage the screen and leave
lint pieces behind). If the LED panel is very dirty, you can mix equal parts of isopropyl alcohol and distilled water in a
clean spray bottle, spray the mixture onto the cloth (do not spray the solution directly on the panel) and gently clean
the panel. A “special outdoor formula” LED Cleaning Kit is now available and can be ordered from SkyVue Outdoor
TV.
When the TV is not in use, keep it covered with a Deluxe SkyVue Outdoor TV Cover:
When the unit is not being used, the SkyVue team strongly recommends using the all weather protective cover.
The weatherproof cover will protect your SkyVue Outdoor TV from dust, fingerprints, static, wind and other harmful
outdoor elements. The Deluxe SkyVue cover is made from only the highest quality, super soft yet durable material,
along with an embroidered SkyVue logo patch to dress up your investment when it is not in use.
General Cleaning
Remove any dirt and salt deposits from the cabinet, being careful to rinse the cloth frequently to avoid scratching
the TV or screen surface. Avoid using harsh chemicals, abrasives, or solvents when cleaning any surface on the unit.
Snow and Ice
Use a soft brush and towel to remove snow and ice from the unit.

TV Care & Policy Information
Extreme Climate Warning
If temperatures below -24º F are expected, we recommend that you bring your SkyVue Outdoor TV inside to prevent
damage to the LED screen.
SkyVue Outdoor TV Pixel Quality Policy
(Applicable to LED TVs sold within USA and Canada only.)
SkyVue Outdoor TV LED screens are manufactured with rigorous standards to maintain optimal viewing. However, the LED screen may have minor defects that appear as a small bright or dark pixel. This is common to all LED
screens used in display and television products, and is not specific to SkyVue Outdoor TV.
Bright dots are dots that appear bright and unchanged in size when a LED TV screen displays a black pattern.
Dark dots are dots that appear dark and unchanged in size when a LED TV screen displays a pure red, green, or
blue pattern.
Adjacent dots are pixels located directly next to each other.
Your SkyVue Outdoor TV will be replaced under warranty if it meets one of the
following criteria:
•
A total of 5 defective pixels, including both bright dots and dark dots are present. (This LED screen has over
a million pixels.)
•
2 or more pairs of adjacent bright dots are present.
•
3 adjacent bright dots are present.
•
3 adjacent dark dots are present.
To locate defective pixels, the LED panel should be examined under normal operating conditions, in its native display resolution, with a 90 degree viewing angle, from a distance of a approximately 20 inches.
For questions, please call our Customer Care Center at 877.475.9883.
