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 unit is exposed to the breeze from an air conditioner. In such cases, change the
location of the unit.
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 Iogos, 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.
This is not a sign of a malfunction.
• 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 as infrared cordless headphones.
