General Terms
This HP Hardware Limited Warranty gives you, the customer,
express limited warranty rights from HP, the manufacturer.
Please refer to HP’s Web site for an extensive description of
your limited warranty entitlements. In addition, you may also
have other legal rights under applicable local law or special
written agreement with HP.
HP MAKES NO OTHER EXPRESS WARRANTY OR
CONDITION, WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL, AND
HP EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND
CONDITIONS NOT STATED IN THIS LIMITED WARRANTY.
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY THE LOCAL LAW OF
JURISDICTIONS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES, HP
DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS,
INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. FOR ALL TRANSACTIONS OCCURRING IN
THE UNITED STATES, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OR
CONDITION OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY
QUALITY, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE IS
LIMITED TO THE DURATION OF THE EXPRESS
WARRANTY SET FORTH ABOVE. SOME STATES OR
COUNTRIES/REGIONS DO NOT ALLOW A LIMITATION
ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS OR
THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES FOR CONSUMER
PRODUCTS. IN SUCH STATES OR COUNTRIES/REGIONS,
SOME EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS OF THIS LIMITED
WARRANTY MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
THE LIMITED WARRANTY TERMS CONTAINED IN THIS
STATEMENT, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT LAWFULLY
PERMITTED, DO NOT EXCLUDE, RESTRICT, OR MODIFY
BUT ARE IN ADDITION TO THE MANDATORY STATUTORY
RIGHTS APPLICABLE TO THE SALE OF THIS PRODUCT
TO YOU.
This Limited Warranty is applicable in all countries/regions
and may be enforced in any country/region where HP or its
authorized service providers offer warranty service for the
same product model number subject to the terms and
conditions set forth in this Limited Warranty.
Under the HP Global Limited Warranty program, products
purchased in one country/region may be transferred to
another country/region, where HP or its authorized service
providers offer warranty service for the same product model
number, without voiding the warranty. Warranty terms,
service availability, and service response times may vary
from country/region to country/region. Standard warranty
service response time is subject to change due to local parts
availability. If so, your HP authorized service provider can
provide you with details.
HP is not responsible for any tariffs or duties that may be
incurred in transferring the products. Transfer of the products
may be covered by export controls issued by the United
States or other governments.
This Limited Warranty applies only to HP-branded and
Compaq-branded hardware products (collectively referred
to in this Limited Warranty as “HP Hardware Products”)
sold by or leased from Hewlett-Packard Company, its
worldwide subsidiaries, affiliates, authorized resellers, or
country/region distributors (collectively referred to in this
Limited Warranty as “HP”) with this Limited Warranty. The
term “HP Hardware Product” is limited to the hardware
components and required firmware. The term “HP Hardware
Product” DOES NOT include any software applications or
programs; non-HP products or non-HP branded peripherals.
All non-HP products or non-HP-branded peripherals external
to the HP Hardware Product — such as external storage
subsystems, displays, printers, and other peripherals — are
provided “AS IS” without HP warranty. However, non-HP
manufacturers and suppliers or publishers may provide their
own warranties directly to you.
HP warrants that the HP Hardware Products that you have
purchased or leased from HP are free from defects in
materials or workmanship under normal use during the
Limited Warranty Period. The Limited Warranty Period starts
on the date of purchase or lease from HP, or from the date
HP completes installation. Your dated sales or delivery
receipt, showing the date of purchase or lease of the
product, is your proof of the purchase or lease date. You
may be required to provide proof of purchase or lease as a
condition of receiving warranty service. You are entitled to
hardware warranty service according to the terms and
conditions of this document if a repair to your HP Hardware
Product is required within the Limited Warranty Period.
Unless otherwise stated, and to the extent permitted by local
law, new HP Hardware Products may be manufactured
using new materials or new and used materials equivalent
to new in performance and reliability. HP may repair or
replace HP Hardware Products (a) with new or previously
used products or parts equivalent to new in performance
and reliability, or (b) with equivalent products to an original
product that has been discontinued. Replacement parts are
warranted to be free from defects in material or
workmanship for ninety (90) days or, for the remainder of
the Limited Warranty Period of the HP Hardware Product
they are replacing or in which they are installed, whichever
is longer.
During the Limited Warranty Period, HP will, at its discretion,
repair or replace any defective component. All component
parts or hardware products removed under this Limited
Warranty become the property of HP. In the unlikely event
that your HP Hardware Product has recurring failures, HP,
at its sole discretion, may elect to provide you with
(a) a replacement unit of HP’s choosing that is the same or
equivalent to your HP Hardware Product in performance
or (b) to give you a refund of your purchase price or lease
payments (less interest) instead of a replacement. This is
your exclusive remedy for defective products.
Exclusions
HP does not warrant that the operation of this product will
be uninterrupted or error-free. HP is not responsible for
damage that occurs as a result of your failure to follow the
instructions intended for the HP Hardware Product.
This Limited Warranty does not apply to expendable or
consumable parts and does not extend to any product from
which the serial number has been removed or that has been
damaged or rendered defective (a) as a result of accident,
misuse, abuse, contamination, improper or inadequate
maintenance or calibration or other external causes;
(b) by operation outside the usage parameters stated in
the user documentation that shipped with the product;
(c) by software, interfacing, parts or supplies not supplied
by HP; (d) by improper site preparation or maintenance;
(e) by virus infection; (f) from loss or damage in transit; or
(g) by modification or service by anyone other than (i) HP,
(ii) an HP authorized service provider, or (iii) your own
installation of end-user-replaceable HP or HP-approved parts
if available for your product in the servicing country/region.
Exclusive Remedy
TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LOCAL LAW,
these terms and conditions constitute the complete and
exclusive warranty agreement between you and HP
regarding the HP Hardware Product you have purchased or
leased. These terms and conditions supersede any prior
agreements or representations — including representations
made in HP sales literature or advice given to you by HP or
an agent or employee of HP — that may have been made in
connection with your purchase or lease of the HP Hardware
Product. No change to the conditions of this Limited
Warranty is valid unless it is made in writing and signed
by an authorized representative of HP.
Limitation of Liability
IF YOUR HP HARDWARE PRODUCT FAILS TO WORK AS
WARRANTED ABOVE, HP’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY UNDER
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS EXPRESSLY LIMITED TO THE
LESSER OF THE PRICE YOU HAVE PAID FOR THE PRODUCT
OR THE COST OF REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF ANY
HARDWARE COMPONENTS THAT MALFUNCTION IN
CONDITIONS OF NORMAL USE.
EXCEPT AS INDICATED ABOVE, IN NO EVENT WILL HP BE
LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES CAUSED BY THE PRODUCT
OR THE FAILURE OF THE PRODUCT TO PERFORM,
INCLUDING ANY LOST PROFITS OR SAVINGS OR
SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
HP IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM MADE BY A THIRD
PARTY OR MADE BY YOU FOR A THIRD PARTY.
THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY APPLIES WHETHER
DAMAGES ARE SOUGHT, OR A CLAIM MADE, UNDER
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR AS A TORT CLAIM
(INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT PRODUCT
LIABILITY), A CONTRACT CLAIM, OR ANY OTHER CLAIM.
THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY CANNOT BE WAIVED OR
AMENDED BY ANY PERSON. THIS LIMITATION OF
LIABILITY WILL BE EFFECTIVE EVEN IF YOU HAVE ADVISED
HP OR AN AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF HP OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION
OF LIABILITY, HOWEVER, WILL NOT APPLY TO CLAIMS
FOR PERSONAL INJURY.
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL
RIGHTS. YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT MAY
VARY FROM STATE TO STATE OR FROM
COUNTRY/REGION TO COUNTRY/REGION. YOU ARE
ADVISED TO CONSULT APPLICABLE STATE OR
COUNTRY/REGION LAWS FOR A FULL DETERMINATION
OF YOUR RIGHTS.
Limited Warranty Period
The Limited Warranty Period for an HP Hardware Product is
a specified, fixed period commencing on the date of
purchase. The date on your sales receipt is the date of
purchase unless HP or your reseller informs you otherwise
in writing.
Types of Warranty Service
To enable HP to provide the best possible support and
service during the Limited Warranty Period, you may be
directed by HP to verify configurations, load most recent
firmware, install software patches, run HP diagnostics tests,
or use HP remote support solutions where applicable.
HP strongly encourages you to accept the use of, or to
employ available support technologies provided by HP.
If you choose not to deploy available remote support
capabilities, you may incur additional costs due to increased
support resource requirements. Listed below are the types of
warranty support service that may be applicable to the
HP Hardware Product you have purchased.
In-Home Warranty Service
Your HP Limited Warranty service may include in-home labor
support to repair your hardware. HP provides in-home
service during standard office hours. Standard office hours
are typically 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through
Friday, but may vary with local business practices. If your
location is outside the customary service zone (typically
50 km) response times may be longer or there may be
additional charges. To locate the nearest HP authorized
service provider refer to the HP Web site at:
http://www.hp.com/support
HP may, at its sole discretion, determine if in-home warranty
service is required. For example, in many cases, the defect
can be fixed by the use of a customer self repair (CSR)
part that you are required to replace yourself based on
instructions and documentation provided by HP. You are
also required to cooperate with HP in attempting to resolve
the problem over the telephone. This may involve performing
routine diagnostic procedures, removing third-party options,
and/or substituting options. In order to receive in-home
support, you must: (a) have a representative present when
HP provides warranty services at your site; (b) notify HP if
products are being used in an environment which poses
a potential health or safety hazard to HP employees or
subcontractors; (c) subject to its reasonable security
requirements, provide HP with sufficient, free, and safe
access to and use of all facilities, information, and systems
determined necessary by HP to provide timely support;
(d) ensure that all manufacturers labels (such as serial
numbers) are in place, accessible, and legible; (e) maintain
an environment consistent with product specifications and
supported configurations.
If you require an HP representative to handle all component
replacements, support uplift contracts are available at
additional cost.
Carry-in Warranty Service
Under the terms of carry-in service, you will be required to
deliver your HP Hardware Product to an authorized service
location for warranty repair. You must prepay any shipping
charges, taxes, or duties associated with transportation of
the product to and from the service location. In addition,
you are responsible for insuring any product shipped or
returned to an authorized service location and assume risk
of loss during shipping.
Advanced Unit Replacement
Warranty Service
Your HP Limited Warranty may include an advance unit
replacement warranty service. Under the terms of the
advanced unit replacement warranty service, if a unit is
diagnosed as defective, HP will ship a replacement product
directly to you. On receiving the replacement unit you will
be required to return the defective unit back to HP, in the
packaging that arrives with the replacement unit, within a
defined period of time, normally fifteen (15) days. HP will
incur all shipping and insurance costs to return the defective
unit to HP. Failure to return the defective unit may result in
HP billing you for the replacement product.
Customer Self Repair Warranty
Service
In countries/regions where it is available, your HP Limited
Warranty may include a customer self repair warranty
service. If applicable, HP will determine in its sole discretion
that customer self repair is the appropriate method of
warranty service. If so, HP will ship approved replacement
parts directly to you to fulfill your HP Hardware Product
warranty service. This will save considerable repair time.
After you contact the HP and the fault diagnosis identifies
that the problem can be fixed using one of these parts, a
replaceable part can be sent directly to you. Once the part
arrives, replace the defective part pursuant to the provided
instructions and documentation. If further assistance is
required, call the HP Technical Support Center and a
technician will assist you over the phone. In cases where the
replacement part must be returned to HP, you must ship the
defective part back to HP within a defined period of time,
normally fifteen (15) days. The defective part must be
returned with the associated documentation in the provided
shipping material. Failure to return the defective product
may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a
customer self repair, HP will pay all shipping and part return
costs and determine the courier/carrier to be used. If
customer self repair applies to you, refer to your specific
HP Hardware Product announcement. You can also obtain
information on this warranty service on the HP Web site at:

Plasma HDTV Warning:
Preventing Image Retention
(Burn-In)
Contacting HP
Your plasma TV illuminates phosphor to display images,
much like a conventional tube-type television. Keeping
stationary images displayed on the TV will eventually result
in uneven aging of the phosphor, causing grayed-out
images to permanently appear on the screen.
If your product fails during the Limited Warranty Period and
the suggestions in the product documentation do not solve
the problem, you can get support through any of the
following:
Permanent image retention can be avoided by taking some
basic precautions. Following the recommendations listed
below will help ensure your plasma TV will have longer life
and offer better performance:

Whenever possible, avoid frequently displaying
stationary images, such as Web sites, computer graphics,
or video games for extended periods of time.
Display video and images in the widescreen 16:9 ratio
format. Use the Aspect button on the remote control to
change from 4:3 screen size (standard television) to fill
the screen in 16:9 ratio. This will prevent potential image
retention of sidebars.
Avoid viewing the onscreen display (OSD) menus from
DVD players, VCRs, and other components for extended
periods of time.
When watching a movie from a DVD player or VCR,
avoid leaving the same image paused continuously over
a long period of time.
Turn down the contrast and brightness of the screen. High
brightness and contrast can accelerate image retention or
stationary images.
Plasma Panel Cell Policy
The plasma display panel is manufactured using highly
precise technology. However, occasionally some of the tiny
cells of the panel may not work properly. This is common
with plasma displays used in any television and is not
specific to this product.
Plasma panel cells not operating properly can be
categorized into two types:
•
Dark cell — when a cell appears dark against a bright
background.
• Bright cell — when a cell illuminates brightly when the
screen is otherwise all black.
A small number of malfunctioning cells are allowed under
product limited warranty, depending on the location of the
cell and their proximity to each other. See
http://www.hp.com/support for more details.
LCD Pixel Policy
The LCD display panel is manufactured using highly precise
technology; however, occasionally some of the tiny pixels of
the panel may stop working properly. This is common with
LCD displays used in any television and is not specific to this
product.
Pixels not operating properly are categorized into two types.
•
Dark pixel — when a pixel appears as a dark spot
against a bright background.
• Bright pixel — when a pixel appears as a bright spot
against a dark background.
A very small number of malfunctioning pixels are allowed
under product limited warranty.
Protect Your Investment

Upgrade your standard factory warranty for up to 3 years
of coverage with an extended service plan. Service
coverage begins on product purchase date and you must

Installation
HP recommends using a qualified installer for wall mounting
your TV. Damage resulting from a custom installation is not
covered by this product limited warranty. The limited
warranty may not cover uninstalling or reinstalling a wall
mounted or custom installed TV for warranty service. If not,
the TV must be removed from the wall or recessed area
before a warranty service technician arrives to repair or
replace your TV.
