The mains lead of this product is fitted with a non-rewireable (moulded) plug incorporating a 13A fuse. Should the
fuse need to be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved BS 1362 fuse marked
or )5) and of the same rating as above,
which is also indicated on the pin face of the plug, must be used.
Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse. Never use the plug without the fuse cover fitted.
In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home not being compatible with the plug supplied, cut off the mains
plug and fit an appropriate type.
The fuse from the cut-off plug should be removed and the cut-off plug destroyed immediately and disposed of in a
safe manner.
Under no circumstances should the cut-off plug be inserted elsewhere into a 13A socket outlet, as a serious electric
shock may occur.
To fit an appropriate plug to the mains lead, follow the instructions below:
IMPORTANT:
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Blue: Neutral
Brown: Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this product may not correspond with the coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
• The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked N or coloured black.
• The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked L or coloured red.
Ensure that neither the brown nor the blue wire is connected to the earth terminal in your three-pin plug.
Before replacing the plug cover make sure that:
• If the new fitted plug contains a fuse, its value is the same as that removed from the cut-off plug.
• The cord grip is clamped over the sheath of the mains lead, and not simply over the lead wires.
IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT, CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.

Introduction
Dear SHARP customer
Thank you for your purchase of the SHARP LCD colour TV product. To ensure safety and many years of troublefree operation of your product, please read the Important Safety Precautions carefully before using this product.
Important Safety Precautions
• Cleaning—Unplug the AC cord from the AC outlet before cleaning the product. Use a damp cloth to clean the product.
Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
• Water and moisture—Do not use the product near water, such as bathtub, washbasin, kitchen sink, laundry tub,
swimming pool and in a wet basement.
• Do not place vases or any other water-filled containers on this product. The water may spill onto the
product causing fire or electric shock.
• Stand—Do not place the product on an unstable cart, stand, tripod or table. Doing so can cause the
product to fall, resulting in serious personal injuries as well as damage to the product. Use only a cart,
stand, tripod, bracket or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the product. When
mounting the product on a wall, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Use only the mounting
hardware recommended by the manufacturer.
• When relocating the product placed on a cart, it must be moved with utmost care. Sudden stops,
excessive force and uneven floor surface can cause the product to fall from the cart.
• Ventilation—The vents and other openings in the cabinet are designed for ventilation. Do not cover or
block these vents and openings since insufficient ventilation can cause overheating and/or shorten the
life of the product. Do not place 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 LCD panel used in this product is made of glass. Therefore, it can break when the product is
dropped or impact applied. If the LCD panel is broken, be careful not to be injured by broken glass.
• Heat sources—Keep the product away from heat sources such as radiators, heaters, stoves and other heat-generating
products (including amplifiers).
• To prevent fire, never place any type of candle or naked flames on the top or near the TV set.
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not place the AC cord under the TV set or other heavy items.
• Do not display a still picture for a long time, as this could cause an afterimage to remain.
• There is power consumption always if main plug is connected.
• Servicing—Do not attempt to service the product yourself. Removing covers can expose you to high
voltage and other dangerous conditions. Request a qualified person to perform servicing.
The LCD panel is a very high technology product, giving you fine picture details.
Due to the very large number of pixels, occasionally a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen as a
fixed point of blue, green or red.
This is within product specifications and does not constitute a fault.
Precautions when transporting the TV
When transporting the TV, never carry it by holding onto the speakers. Be sure to always carry the TV by two
people holding it with two hands — one hand on each side of the TV.

Preparation
Inserting the batteries
Before using the TV for the first time, insert two “AAA” size batteries (supplied). When the batteries become
depleted and the remote control unit fails to operate, replace the batteries with new “AAA” size batteries.
1 Open the battery cover.
2 Insert two supplied “AAA” size batteries.
• Place batteries with their terminals corresponding to the
(k) and (l) indications in the battery compartment.
3
Close the battery cover.
CAUTION
Improper use of batteries can result in chemical leakage or explosion. Be sure to follow the instructions below.
• Do not mix batteries of different types. Different types of batteries have different characteristics.
• Do not mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new batteries or cause
chemical leakage in old batteries.
• Remove batteries as soon as they have worn out. Chemicals that leak from batteries can cause a rash. If you
find any chemical leakage, wipe thoroughly with a cloth.
• The batteries supplied with this product may have a shorter life expectancy due to storage conditions.
• If you will not be using the remote control unit for an extended period of time, remove the batteries from it.
Note on disposing batteries:
The batteries provided contain no harmful materials such as cadmium, lead or mercury.
Regulations concerning used batteries stipulate that batteries may no longer be thrown out with the household
rubbish. Deposit any used batteries free of charge into the designated collection containers set up at commercial
businesses.
Using the remote control unit

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Solution
• No power.
• Check if you pressed B on the remote control unit.
If the indicator on the TV lights up red, press B.
• Is the AC cord disconnected?
• Check if you pressed a on the TV.
• Unit cannot be operated.
• External influences such as lightning, static electricity, etc., may cause improper operation. In
this case, operate the unit after first turning the power off, or unplugging the AC cord and replugging it in after 1 or 2 minutes.
• Remote control unit does not operate.
•
•
•
•
• Picture is cut off.
• Is the image position correct?
• Are screen mode adjustments (WIDE MODE) such as picture size made correctly? (Pages 29
and 33)
• Strange colour, light colour, or dark, or
colour misalignment.
• Adjust the picture tone.
• Is the room too bright? The picture may look dark in a room that is too bright.
• Check the “Colour System” setting. (Pages 27 and 32)
• Power is suddenly turned off.
• The unit’s internal temperature has increased.
Remove any objects blocking the vent or clean.
• Is the “Sleep Timer” set? Select “Off” from the “Sleep Timer” menu. (Page 26)
• Is “No Signal Off” or “Ecology” activated?
• No picture.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
• No sound.
• Is the volume too low?
• Make sure that headphones are not connected.
• Check if you pressed e on the remote control unit.
• The TV sometimes makes a cracking
sound.
• This is not a malfunction. This happens when the cabinet slightly expands and contracts
according to change in temperature. This does not affect the TV’s performance.
Are batteries inserted with polarity (e, f) aligned?
Are batteries worn out? (Replace with new batteries.)
Are you using it under strong or fluorescent lighting?
Is a fluorescent light illuminating to the remote control sensor?
Are connections to external equipment correct? (Pages 15 - 17)
Is the input signal type selected correctly after connection? (Page 32)
Is the correct input source selected? (Page 10)
Is a non-compatible signal being input? (Page 36)
Is the picture adjustment correct? (Pages 24-25)
Is the antenna connected properly? (Page 8)
Is “On” selected in “Audio Only”? (Page 30)
Cautions regarding use in high and low temperature environments
• When the unit is used in a low temperature space (e.g. room, office), the picture may leave trails or appear slightly delayed.
This is not a malfunction, and the unit will recover when the temperature returns to normal.
• Do not leave the unit in a hot or cold location. Also, do not leave the unit in a location exposed to direct sunlight or near a
heater, as this may cause the cabinet to deform and the LCD panel to malfunction.
Storage temperature: e5°C to e35°C.

The mains lead of this product is fitted with a non-rewireable (moulded) plug incorporating a 13A fuse. Should the
fuse need to be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved BS 1362 fuse marked
or )5) and of the same rating as above,
which is also indicated on the pin face of the plug, must be used.
Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse. Never use the plug without the fuse cover fitted.
In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home not being compatible with the plug supplied, cut off the mains
plug and fit an appropriate type.
The fuse from the cut-off plug should be removed and the cut-off plug destroyed immediately and disposed of in a
safe manner.
Under no circumstances should the cut-off plug be inserted elsewhere into a 13A socket outlet, as a serious electric
shock may occur.
To fit an appropriate plug to the mains lead, follow the instructions below:
IMPORTANT:
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Blue: Neutral
Brown: Live
As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this product may not correspond with the coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
• The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked N or coloured black.
• The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the plug terminal which is marked L or coloured red.
Ensure that neither the brown nor the blue wire is connected to the earth terminal in your three-pin plug.
Before replacing the plug cover make sure that:
• If the new fitted plug contains a fuse, its value is the same as that removed from the cut-off plug.
• The cord grip is clamped over the sheath of the mains lead, and not simply over the lead wires.
IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT, CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.
