HOW TO HANDLE THE LCD PANEL
• Do not press hard or jolt the LCD panel. It may cause the LCD panel glass to break and
injury may occur.
• 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 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.
Possible Adverse Effects on LCD Panel: If a fixed (non-moving) pattern remains on the
LCD Panel for long periods of time, the image can become permanently engrained in the
LCD Panel and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. This type of damage is NOT
COVERED BY YOUR WARRANTY. Never leave your LCD Panel on for long periods of time
while it is displaying the following formats or images:
• Fixed Images, such as stock tickers, video game patterns, TV station logos, and websites.
• Special Formats that do not use the entire screen. For example, viewing letterbox style
(16:9) media on a normal (4:3) display (black bars at top and bottom of screen); or viewing
normal style (4:3) media on a widescreen (16:9) display (black bars on left and right sides
of screen).
The following symptoms are not signs of malfunction but technical limitation.
Therefore we disclaim any responsibility for these symptoms.
• LCD Panels are manufactured using an extremely high level of precision technology,
however sometimes parts of the screen may be missing picture elements or have
luminous spots.
• Do not install the LCD Panel near electronic equipment that produces electromagnetic
waves. Some equipment placed too near this unit may cause interference.
• Effect on infrared devices – There may be interference while using infrared devices such

• When selecting Closed Captions, the captioning will appear after approx. 10
seconds.
• Misspellings or unusual characters may occasionally appear during Closed
Captioning.
This is normal with Closed Captioning, especially with live programs. This is
because during live programs, captions are also entered live. These transmissions
do not allow time for editing.
• When Captions are being displayed, on-screen displays, such as volume may be
seen but may interfere with Closed Captions.
• Some cable systems and copy protection systems may interfere with the Closed
Captioned signal.
• If using an indoor antenna or if TV reception is very poor, the closed caption may
not appear or may appear with strange characters or misspelled words. In this
case, adjust the antenna for better reception or use an outdoor antenna.

Reception disturbances
IGNITION NOISE:
Black spots or horizontal streaks may appear, picture may
flutter or drift. Usually caused by interference from automobile
ignition systems, neon lamps, electrical drills, and other electrical
appliances.
GHOSTS:
Ghosts are caused by the television signal following two paths.
One is the direct path and the other is reflected from tall buildings,
hills or some other objects. Changing the direction or position
of the antenna may improve reception. Ghosting may also be
caused by defects in the antenna system such as unshielded
leads or connecting several sets to the same antenna without
using multiple antenna couplers.
SNOW:
If your receiver is located in the fringe area of a television station
where the signal is weak, your picture may be marred by the
appearance of small dots. When the signal is extremely weak,
it may be necessary to install a special antenna to improve the
picture.
RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE:
The interference produces moving ripples or diagonal streaks,
and in some cases, causes loss of contrast in the picture.
PREVENTION OF AN OBSTACLE TO RADIO RECEIVERS
This television has been designed pursuant to the FCC class
B Rules. This is to prevent a problem to Radio receivers. If this
television causes a problem to Radio receivers, then take the
following steps:
• Keep the television away from Radio.
• Adjust Radio antennas in order for the television not to receive
interference.
• The antenna cable of Radio should be kept away from the
television.
• Use a coaxial cable for antenna.
You can check if this television influences Radio receivers by
turning off all other equipment other than the television. If you find
a problem receiving Radio when using the television, check the
instructions mentioned above.
BLOCK NOISE or FREEZE (DIGITAL INPUT):
Fuzzy blocks may appear in some area or the whole area of the
screen. This is usually caused by interference from automobile
ignition systems, neon lamps, electrical drills, ghosting of the
image and lost or weak receiving signals.
NOTE:
• The TV set can generate sound distortion in external devices such as a radio. Please
separate radio equipment from the TV set to a considerable distance.
