the product on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface, since they can block ventilation openings. This product is not
designed for built-in installation; do not place the product in an enclosed place such as a bookcase or rack, unless proper
ventilation is provided or the manufacturer's instructions are followed.
• The Liquid Crystal panel used in this product is made of glass. Therefore, it can break when the product is dropped or
applied with impact. Be careful not to be injured by broken glass pieces in case the panel breaks.
• Heat — The product should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other
products (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
• The Liquid Crystal panel is a very high technology product with 2,073,600 pixels, giving you fine picture details.
Occasionally, a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen as a fixed point of blue, green or red. Please note that
this does not affect the performance of your product.
• Lightning — For added protection for this television equipment during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and
unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna. This will prevent damage to
the equipment due to lightning and power-line surges.
• Power Lines — An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric
light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system,
extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
• To prevent fire, never place any type of candle or flames on the top or near the TV set.

carry the TV by two people holding it with two hands — one hand on each side of the TV.
Caring for the Cabinet
• Use a soft cloth (cotton, flannel, etc.) and gently wipe the surface of the cabinet.
• Using a chemical cloth (wet/dry sheet type cloth, etc.) may deform the components of the main unit cabinet or cause
cracking.
• Wiping with a hard cloth or using strong force may scratch the surface of the cabinet.
• If the cabinet is very dirty, wipe with a soft cloth (cotton, flannel, etc.) soaked in neutral detergent diluted with water and
thoroughly wrung out, and then wipe with a soft dry cloth.
• The cabinet is primarily made of plastic. Avoid using benzene, thinner, and other solvents, as these may deform the
cabinet and cause the paint to peel off.
• Do not apply insecticides or other volatile liquids.
Also, do not allow the cabinet to remain in contact with rubber or vinyl products for a long period of time. Plasticizers
inside the plastic may cause the cabinet to deform and cause the paint to peel off.

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.

Preparation
Antennas
To enjoy a clearer picture, use an outdoor antenna. The following is a brief explanation of the types of connections
that are used for a coaxial cable. If your outdoor antenna uses a 75-ohm coaxial cable with an F-type connector,
plug it into the antenna terminal at the rear of the TV set.
1. A 75-ohm system is generally a round cable with F-type connector
that can easily be attached to a terminal without tools (Commercially
available).
2. A 300-ohm system is a flat “twin-lead” cable that can be attached
to a 75-ohm terminal through a 300/75-ohm adapter (Commercially
available).

300-ohm twin-lead cable (flat)
NOTICE
F-type connector should be finger-tightened only.
When connecting the RF cable to the TV set, do not tighten F-type
connector with tools.
If tools are used, it may cause damage to your TV set. (The breaking
of internal circuit, etc.)

• Over-the-air broadcasting via HD quality antenna
• HD cable/satellite subscription
• HD compatible external equipment
• For information on updating to HD programming, ask your cable/satellite service provider.
Types of Connection
Image quality differs depending on the terminal used. To enjoy clearer images, check the output terminals of your
external equipment and use its appropriate terminals for higher quality images.
• The illustrations of the terminals are for explanation purposes and may vary slightly from the actual products.

Closed Captions and Digital Closed Captions
Your TV is equipped with an internal Closed Caption
decoder. It allows you to view conversations, narration
and sound effects as subtitles on your TV. Closed
Captions are available on some TV programs and on
some VHS home video tapes at the discretion of the
program provider.
Digital Closed Caption service is a new caption service
available only on digital TV programs (also at the
discretion of the service provider). It is a more flexible
system than the original Closed Caption system,
because it allows for a variety of caption sizes and font
styles. When the Digital Closed Caption service is in
use, it will be indicated by the appearance of a 3-letter
abbreviation that also indicates the language of the
Digital Closed Captions: ENG (English), SPA (Spanish),
FRA (French) or other language codes.
Not all programs and VHS videotapes offer closed
captions. Please look for the “N” symbol to ensure
that captions will be shown.
In the Closed Caption system, there can be more than
one caption service provided. Each is identified by its
own number. The “CC1” and “CC2” services display
subtitles of TV programs superimposed over the
program's picture.
In the Closed Caption system, the “Text1” or “Text2”
services display text that is unrelated to the program
being viewed (e.g., weather or news). These services
are also superimposed over the program currently
being viewed.

information
• Depending on the number of caption services in the
signal being received, you will see information such as
1/2 or 1/4 displayed.
1/2 means “the first of two services”.
Example:
If a program has three services (Digital CC(ENG), CC1
and Text1), the closed caption display will toggle in this
sequence:
1/3 ENG
2/3 CC1
3/3 Text1
Off
• The CC button keeps a record of the last service
selected in its memory.
If the last closed caption mode (e.g. 1/3 ENG) you
selected is not available for the next program, or on
another channel, the closed caption service that is
available is automatically selected, and this service
appears in parentheses, e.g. “1/3(CC1)”.
Closed Caption services that appear in parentheses
will not be stored in the CC button's memory as your
last selected service. Only services that you have
selected with the CC button are stored.
Examples:
In a case where there are two closed caption
services provided (for instance, Digital CC(ENG)
and CC1), and Digital CC(ENG) is displayed
as your current selection, if Digital CC(ENG) is
not broadcast for the next program, the other
closed caption service, CC1, will be displayed in
parentheses.
A closed caption service appears in parentheses
because the service you selected is not available
and a different service is displayed on your screen.
“1/1(CC1)” is displayed instead of “1/2/ENG”.
• When “Power Saving” is set to “Standard” or “Advanced”,
the Power Saving leaf icon appears on the channel
information window. See page 25 for details of Power
Saving settings.
• See page 31 for detailed closed caption settings.
• When the program contains no closed caption, “--”
displays in the closed caption information.
• If the language code, e.g. “ENG”, is not found on Digital TV
programs, “--” will be shown.
• Four kinds of closed caption service (CC1, CC2, Text1,
Text2) are potentially available, but a broadcast may
contain none or only some of these services at the
discretion of the program provider.
