Safety Precautions

CAUTION

RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK

DO NOT OPEN

WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not remove cover or back.

No user-serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.

The lightning flash with arrow head within a triangle is intended to tell the user that parts inside the product are a risk of electric shock to persons.

The exclamation point within a triangle is intended to tell the user that important operating and servicing instructions are in the papers with the appliance.

Note to CATV System Installer

This reminder is provided to direct the CATV system installer’s attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.

Secure Ventilation

Slots and openings in the cabinet and the back or bottom are provided for ventilation, and to ensure reliable operation of the LCD

TV and to protect it from overheating. These openings must not be blocked or covered. There should be at least 10 cm of space from these openings. The openings should never be blocked by placing the LCD TV on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface.

This LCD TV should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase unless proper ventilation is provided.

Important Safety Instructions

1) Read these instructions.

2) Keep these instructions.

3) Heed all warnings.

4) Follow all instructions.

5) Do not use this apparatus near water.

6) Clean only with dry cloth.

7) Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

8) Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat.

9) Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet.

10) Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the apparatus.

11) Only use attachments / accessories specified by the manufacturer.

12) Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified by the manufacturer, or sold with the apparatus. When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart / apparatus combination to avoid injury from tip-over.

13) Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time.

14) Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way, such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped.

15) Operate only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home consult your television dealer or local power company.

16) Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the LCD TV.

17) Never push objects of any kind into this LCD TV through cabinet slots as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the LCD TV.

18) If an outside antenna is connected to the tele vi sion equipment, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built up static charg es.

In the U.S. Section 810-21 of the National Electrical Code provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and re quire ments for the grounding electrode.

19) An outside antenna system should not be lo cat ed in the vicinity of overhead power lines, other electric light, 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.

20) Unplug this LCD TV from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: a. When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.

b. If liquid has been spilled into the LCD TV.

c. If the LCD TV has been exposed to rain or water.

d. If the LCD TV does not operate normally by following the operating instructions.

Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions as improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the LCD

TV to normal operation.

e. If the LCD TV has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.

f. When the LCD TV exhibits a distinct change in performance - this indicates a need for service.

21) When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician uses replacement parts specified by the manufacturer that have the same characteristics as the original parts. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other hazards.

22) WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS APPARATUS TO RAIN,

MOISTURE, DRIPPING OR SPLASHING.

DO NOT PLACE LIQUID CONTAINERS (FLOWER VASES, CUPS, COSMETICS, ETC.) ABOVE THE SET

(INCLUDING ON SHELVES ABOVE, ETC.).

23) WARNING: SMALL PARTS CAN PRESENT CHOKING HAZARD IF ACCIDENTALLY SWALLOWED. KEEP SMALL PARTS

AWAY FROM YOUNG CHILDREN.

DISCARD UNNEEDED SMALL PARTS AND OTHER OBJECTS, INCLUDING PACKAGING MATERIALS

AND PLASTIC BAGS/SHEETS TO PREVENT THEM FROM BEING PLAYED WITH BY YOUNG CHILDREN,

CREATING THE POTENTIAL RISK OF SUFFOCATION.

24) CAUTION: TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT USE THIS PLUG WITH A RECEPTACLE OR OTHER OUTLET

UNLESS THE BLADES CAN BE FULLY INSERTED TO PREVENT BLADE EX PO SURE.

25) CAUTION: USE WITH OTHER STAND MAY RESULT IN INSTABILITY POSSIBLY CAUSING INJURY.

26) CAUTION: DANGER OF EXPLOSION IF BATTERY IS INCORRECTLY REPLACED. REPLACE ONLY WITH THE SAME OR

For watching movies in a darkened room. It provides a soft, film-like picture.

Custom: Customizes each item according to your taste.

Maintenance

First, unplug the Power cord plug from the wall outlet.

Display panel

The front of the display panel has been specially treated. Wipe the panel surface gently using only a cleaning cloth or a soft, lint-free cloth.

If the surface is particularly dirty, soak a soft, lint-free cloth in a weak detergent solution and then wring the cloth to remove excess liquid. Use this cloth to wipe the surface of the display panel, then wipe it evenly with a dry cloth of the same type until the surface is dry.

Do not scratch or hit the surface of the panel with fingernails or other hard objects. Furthermore, avoid contact with volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents, and thinner; otherwise, the quality of the surface may be adversely affected.

Cabinet

If the cabinet becomes dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.

If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in a weak detergent solution and then wring the cloth dry.

Use this cloth to wipe the cabinet and then wipe it dry with a dry cloth.

Do not allow any detergent to come into direct contact with the surface of the LCD TV.

If water droplets get inside the unit, operating problems may result.

Avoid contact with volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents, and thinner; otherwise, the quality of the cabinet surface may be adversely affected or the coating may peel off. Furthermore, do not leave it for long periods in contact with articles made from rubber or PVC.

Pedestal

Cleaning

Wipe the surfaces with a soft, dry cloth. If the unit is particularly dirty, clean it using a cloth soaked with water to which a small amount of neutral detergent has been added and then wipe with a dry cloth.

Do not use products such as solvents, thinner, or household wax for cleaning, as they can damage the surface coating. (If using a chemically-treated cloth, follow the instructions supplied with the cloth.)

Do not attach sticky tape or labels, as they can make the surface of the pedestal dirty. Do not allow long-term contact with rubber, vinyl products, or the like. (Doing so will cause deterioration.)

Power cord plug

Wipe the plug with a dry cloth at regular intervals. (Moisture and dust can lead to fire or electrical shock.)
