Maintenance
First, remove the mains plug from the socket outlet.
Display panel, Cabinet, Pedestal
For regular care:
Gently wipe the surface of the display panel, cabinet, or pedestal by using a soft cloth to clean the dirt
or fingerprints.
For stubborn dirt:
Dampen a soft cloth with clean water or diluted neutral detergent (1 part detergent to 100 parts water).
Then wring the cloth and wipe the surface. Finally, wipe away all the moisture.
● Do not use a hard cloth or rub the surface too hard. This may cause scratches on the surface.
● Take care not to subject the TV’s surfaces to water or detergent. A liquid inside the TV could lead to
product failure.
● Take care not to subject the surfaces to insect repellent, solvent, thinner, or other volatile substances.
This may degrade surface quality or cause peeling of the paint.
● Take care not to tap or scratch the surface with your fingernail or other hard objects.
● Do not allow the cabinet and pedestal to make contact with a rubber or PVC substance for a long
time. This may degrade surface quality.
