Introduction
Introduction
What is a Plasma Display Panel (PDP)?
A plasma display panel is the latest display technology and the best way to achieve flat panel displays with excellent image quality
and large screen sizes that are easily viewable. The PDP can be thought of as a descendant of the neon lamp and it can be also
be viewed as a series of fluorescent lamps.
How does it work?
PDP is an array of cells, known as pixels, which are comprised of 3 sub pixels, corresponding to the colors red, green, and blue.
Gas in a plasma state is used to react with phosphors in each sub-pixel to produce colored light (red, green, or blue). These phosphors are the same types used in Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) devices such as televisions and common computer monitors.
You get the rich, dynamic colors that you expect. Each sub-pixel is individually controlled by advanced electronics to produce over
16 million different colors. All of these mean that you get perfect images that are easily viewable in a display that is less than 5
inches thick.
160° - Wide angle range of vision
Your flat panel plasma screen offers an exceptionally broad viewing angle -- over 160 degrees. This means that the display is
clear and visible to viewers anywhere in the room who can see the screen.
Wide Screen
The screen of the Plasma Display is so wide that your viewing experience is as if you are in a theater.
Multimedia
Connect your plasma display to a PC and you can use it for conferencing, games, and Internet browsing. The Picture-in-Picture
feature allows you to view your PC and video images simultaneously.
Versatile
The light weight and thin size makes it easy to install your plasma display in a variety of locations where conventional TVs will not
fit.
The PDP Manufacturing Process: a few minute colored dots may be present on the PDP screen
The PDP (Plasma Display Panel), which is the display device of this product, is composed of 0.9 to 2.2 million cells. A few cell
defects will normally occur in the PDP manufacturing process. Several tiny, minute colored dots visible on the screen should be
acceptable. This also occurs in other PDP manufacturers' products. The tiny dots appearing does not mean that this PDP is defective. Thus a few cell defects are not sufficient cause for the PDP to be exchanged or returned. Our production technology minimizes these cell defects during the manufacture and operation of this product.

External Control Device Setup
* All data are transmitted by Hexadecimal code
*Two/One part Channel: 6th bit
This bit is used in a cable-ready system.
*Using physical channel: 5th bit
If the channel band is NTSC air or NTSC cable, channel tuning can be done by only physical channel. In this case, using
physical channel bit must be low(0).
But if the channel band is ATSC air or ATSC cable, there are
two cases that physical channel enable or disable.
If the physical channel sending is meaningful, you should set
this bit low(0). If the physical channel sending is meaningless,
you should set this bit high(1).
Example)
1. Analog channel: NTSC cable, channel number(35), main
picture Command: ma 00 23 xx xx xx xx 01 attribute(0x01):
main picture, two part(it’s not mandatory), using physical channel, NTSC cable ‘xx’ data: don’t care major and minor channel
number in case analog channel tuning.
2. Digital channel: ATSC air, channel number(don’t know physical channel, major(30), minor(3)), sub picture
Command: ma 00 xx 00 1E 00 03 A2 attribute(0xA2): sub picture, two part, not using physical channel, ATSC air ‘xx’ data:
don’t care analog channel number in case digital channel tuning.
3. Digital channel: ATSC air, channel
number(physical(20),major(20), minor(3)), sub picture
Command: ma 00 14 00 14 00 03 82 attribute(0x82): sub picture, two part, using physical channel, ATSC air.

Programming the Remote
Programming the Remote
G The remote is a multi-brand or a universal remote. It can be programmed to operate most remote-controllable devices of
other manufacturers.
Note that the remote may not control all models of other brands.
Programming a code into a remote mode
1. To find out whether your remote can operate the device without programming, turn on the device such as a VCR and press the
corresponding mode button on the remote.
After that, press the POWER button. If the device is turned off then it responds properly and the remote need not to be programmed. If not, the remote should be programmed to operate the device. The programming procedures are explained below.
2. Press the MENU and MUTE button continuously at the same time for 2 seconds, the current selected device button will be illuminated.
If you don't press any button for 20 seconds, the light on the mode button will be turned off. In that case, you have to repeat from
step 2.
3. Enter code numbers using the number button on the remote by refering the code table on the following pages. When pressing
the button, the light blinks at a time. If the device turned off, the programming is successful.
4. Press the MENU button to store the code. After blinking twice, this code is stored.
5. Test the remote functions to see if the device responds properly. If not, repeat from step 2.

Owner’s Manual 103
Maintenance
Maintenance
- Early malfunctions can be prevented. Careful and regular cleaning can extend the amount of time you will have your
new TV. Be sure to turn the power off and unplug the power cord before you begin any cleaning.
Cleaning the Screen
1. Here’s a great way to keep the dust off your screen for a while. Wet a soft cloth in a mixture of lukewarm water and
a little fabric softener or dish washing detergent. Wring the cloth until it’s almost dry, and then use it to wipe the
screen.
2. Make sure the excess water is off the screen, and then let it air-dry before you turn on your TV.
Cleaning the Cabinet
To remove dirt or dust, wipe the cabinet with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
Please be sure not to use a wet cloth.
Extended Absence
If you expect to leave your TV dormant for a long time (such as a vacation), it’s a good idea to unplug
the power cord to protect against possible damage from lightning or power surges.

For warranty service information, please contact the LGE Customer Interactive Center telephone number.
When calling for service, please have your product model number, serial number and the date of purchase or the date of original installation available.
If a replacement unit is required, under some circumstances you may be asked to provide a reserve deposit to
the LGE Service Center against a credit card number as surety for advanced shipment. Your credit card will not
be charged if you return the defective unit within 10 working days.
If a replacement unit is received, please use the carton and packaging from that unit in returning the defective
unit to the LG®Brand Service Center.
Parts and service in accordance with the LGE warranty are LGE’s responsibility and will be provided without
charge. Other service requirements will be at the owner’s expense. If you have problems in obtaining satisfactory
warranty service, write or call the LGE Customer Interactive Center. Service may be provided by independently
owned and operated service organizations.
To assure proper credit and avoid unnecessary charges, you must obtain an LGE Return Authorization before
returning any product to the LGE Service Center. Contact the Customer Interactive Center for details.
