Important information
Safety
EN
Ensure that your domestic mains supply voltage matches the
voltage indicated on the identification sticker located at the
back of your set.
The TV set's components are sensitive to heat.The
maximum ambient temperature should not exceed 35°
Celsius. Do not cover the vents at the back or sides of the
TV set. Leave sufficient space around it to allow adequate
ventilation.
Moisture in rooms where the set is installed should not
exceed 85% humidity. If you have to use the TV set outdoors,
do not expose it to rain or splashing water. Moving the
set from a cold place to a warm one can cause condensation
on the screen (and on some components inside the TV set).
Let the condensation evaporate before switching the TV set
on again.
Unplug the TV set immediately if you notice it giving off a
burning smell or smoke.You must never, under any
circumstances, open the TV set yourself, as you run the risk of
an electric shock in doing so.
Your TV set includes a high-performance electronic protection
system to prevent damage by external influences, such as ESD
(Electrostatic Discharge) or pollution on the mains power
supply (Mains Transients). In the event of such external
pollution, your TV set may shut down automatically, and you
may need to switch it back on again using the remote control
or the on/off switch A .
Work carried out by unqualified persons or modifications
to the high voltage may cause hazard. A set modified in this
way no longer meets the original specifications and should not
be switched on again.
THOMSON disclaims any liability if the TV set is not used
in accordance with this manual.
If you intend to be away for a long period, switch the TV
set off at the on/off switch A . Even when off, some
components remain in contact with the mains electricity
supply.To completely isolate the set you must remove the plug
from the mains supply socket.
Care
During thunderstorms, we recommend that you disconnect
the TV set from the mains and aerial so that it is not affected
by electrical or electromagnetic surges that could damage it.
For this reason, keep the mains and aerial sockets
accessible so they can be disconnected, if necessary.
Use a glass-cleaning product to clean the screen and a soft
cloth and mild detergent to clean the rest of the set.
Dust the vents at the back and sides regularly. Using solvents,
abrasive or alcohol-based products could damage the TV set.

Specific precautions for DLP™ TV sets
What is DLP™ technology?
Replacing the lamp
You have just bought a TV set equipped with DLP™ (Digital Light
Processing) technology.This new technology uses a special lamp, a
colour wheel and an optical semi-conductor comprising a huge
number of microscopic mirrors to provide you with exceptional
picture quality in a thin, lightweight design.
The lamp supplied with the TV set has a lamp life of a few
thousand hours in normal operating conditions.
If you notice the following changes:
- The time the TV set takes to come on gets noticeably longer.
- The picture’s brightness decreases.
- Whe you switch the set on, there is sound and you can change
channels, but no picture is displayed and the indicator on the
front starts flashing red.This occurs several times.
To ensure that you can enjoy your TV set’s unparalleled operation
for as long as possible, you should observe the following
precautions.
This means that the lamp’s power is running down. You then need
to buy a new one.
Switching your TV set on and off
When you switch the TV set on, if no picture is displayed after 2
minutes, the lamp needs to be replaced.
As with all projection devices, your TV set contains a special lamp
which must heat up and cool down in the proper manner to
ensure its optimum operation for as long as possible.To prolong
the life of the lamp, you must observe the required heating up and
cooling down times.
Choose the exact same type and follow the
instructions provided in the “Lamp replacement
instructions” leaflet (the right lamp type is indicated in the
help text for the Lamp brightness option in the Lamp &
Position menu, see page 14).
To switch the TV set on, press the on/off button on the side of
the set.The picture takes up to 40 seconds to display. If no
picture is displayed after 2 minutes, it is possible that the lamp
needs to be replaced (see further below).
Important:
To put the TV set in standby mode, press the
button on the
remote control.When the set is in standby mode,the indicator
on the front is red.
To switch off the TV set, press the on/off button on the side of
the set.
- NEVER touch the lamp with your fingers because any grease
deposits left on it can reduce the lamp’s life. Always use some kind
of cloth to handle the lamp (gloves, duster, etc.).
- Even after the fan has stopped, the lamp’s temperature still
remains very hot for about 30 minutes and can cause burns.
The fan continues to run for about another two minutes to cool
the lamp down.
Moving the TV set
Important: NEVER unplug the set when the fan is running.
To avoid any damage to the lamp, you should not move the TV set
while the lamp is still hot.Wait until the fan stops before moving it.

The Learning feature
The Learning feature completes the programming procedure described on page 4, as it
enables you to record the functionality of a specific button from the original remote
control to one of the TV’s remote control buttons.
Notes:
- Before using the Learning feature, make sure this TV’s remote control is programmed to control
other appliances you have connected to the TV. Programming the remote control erases all
learned commands for that appliance mode.
- You cannot record a learned function to the following buttons on the TV’s remote control: TV,
VCR, DVD, AUX, SAT, AMP, EXIT, and LIGHT.
- The remote control functions are recorded (learned) by sending infrared (IR) signals: this
operation should be carried out in a dimly lit room to avoid interference. Make sure the TV’s
remote and the original remote are no more than 5 cm apart, with the Infrared (IR) transmitter
of the original remote facing the IR receiver on the top of the TV’s remote.
- The learned buttons are mode specific—if you add a button function from your DVD player’s
remote control, you must press the DVD button first before the learned function will work (in TV
mode, the button where you’ve stored the learned function will continue to work as it always
has).
- Certain remote controls do not support the use of the Learning function.

Switching on
Follow the instructions on this page on how to switch on your TV set and the remote
control before going on to the following pages that describe how to use the remote
control and the channel set-up procedure.
1.
Insert two LR06 or AA batteries in the remote control.
Precautions on using batteries:
- Only use the battery types specified.
- Make sure you use the correct polarity.
- Do not mix new and used batteries.
- Do not use rechargeable batteries.
- Do not expose batteries to excessive heat, throw them in a fire, recharge them or try to open
them, as this could cause them to leak or explode.
- Remove the batteries from the remote control if you are not using it for a long period of time
(several weeks).
220 - 240 V ~ 50 Hz
2.
Connect the power cable FIRST to the television, THEN to a mains socket.
Your TV set should only be connected to a 220 - 240 V ~ 50 Hz AC supply.
It must not be connected to a DC supply. If the plug is detached from the cable, do not, under
any circumstances, connect it to a mains socket, as there is a risk of electric shock.
Mains socket in
continental Europe
Equipment for the UK and Ireland is supplied with a mains cable fitted with a moulded plug.
5A
This plug contains safety components and must not be replaced by one sold by general
retailers. It is fitted with a fuse that protects your television. If your set has stopped
working, the fuse may have blown. If it has, replace it with an identical ASTA or BSI certified
(BS 1362) 5-amp fuse.
3.
Connect the outside aerial or cable network to the g socket at the back of the TV
set.
The aerial socket (75 Ohms - VHF / UHF / cable) can be used for connecting an external aerial
or other equipment fitted with a modulator (video recorder, satellite receiver, etc.).
We recommend that you do not connect other equipment (video recorder, satellite receiver, etc.)
to your TV set to begin with, so as not to complicate the set-up procedure with the additional
steps involved. Connect them when you have finished setting up the channels by referring to
page 24 of this manual.
If you have a NexTView Link video recorder (refer to the connecting diagram at the end of this
manual, inside the cover), you must connect it to the AV1 socket of the TV set using a Scart cable
before proceeding to the initial set-up.

Then use the Auto-update option of the Installation menu to search for the video
recorder signal (refer to the Manual set-up section).
If you connect a video recorder via the aerial socket, you should assign channel 99 to it in
order to improve the picture quality when tapes are being played and in pause mode.
However, we recommend you connect your video recorder via the SCART socket, as it
provides better picture and sound quality.

About NexTView Link
NexTView Link is an “intelligent” link, which can be used to set up channels and as an easy
way to set programmes for recording on a video recorder with the NexTView Link
function or similar (Easy Link, Smart Link, Megalogic, etc.) from a television already set up.
The video recorder should be connected to the AV1 socket using a Scart AVLink cable.
Important: If you’ve purchased your video recorder before 1997, it may not support the
record feature.
Setting up channels
The NexTView Link can be used to automatically download the terrestrial and cable
channels already stored in the television to the video recorder.They will be arranged in the
same order on both items of equipment.
Refer to the instructions for your video recorder to find out how this is done.
Setting a programme to record
The NexTView Link function can also be used as an easy way of setting a programme to
record from Program Info on your television (see paragraph “Recording a programme” on
page 22).
Immediate recording
The NexTView Link function can be used to record what you are currently watching.You
simply press the relevant button on the video recorder remote control (usually REC) and
the recorder will automatically switch to the same channel as the television and start
recording.
Refer to the instructions for your video recorder to find out the relevant button to press
and for more information on the subject.
