Safety Information
Cleaning the Screen Surface
The screen surface is finished with a special coating to
prevent strong light reflections. Be sure to observe the
following precautions to avoid the damaging the finish.
• To remove dust from the screen surface, wipe gently with
a soft cloth. If dust is persistent, wipe with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with a diluted mild detergent
solution. You can wash and repeatedly use the soft cloth.
• Never use any type of abrasive path, alkaline/acid
cleaner, scouring powder, or strong solvent such as
alcohol, benzine or thinner.
Precautions
On viewing the TV comfortably
• To view the TV comfortably, the recommended viewing position is from four to seven times of the screen’s
vertical length away from the TV set.
• View the TV in a moderate light room, as viewing the TV in poor light taxes your eyes. Watching the screen
continuously for long periods of time can also tax your eyes.
On installing the TV set
• Do not install the TV in places subject to extreme temperature, for example in direct sunlight, or near a radiator,
or heating vent. If the TV set is exposed to extreme temperature, the TV set may heat up and it may cause
deformations of the casing or cause the TV set to malfunction.
• To obtain a clear picture, do not expose the screen to direct illumination or direct sunlight. If possible, use spot
lighting directed down from the ceiling.
• The TV set is not disconnected from the mains when the switch is in Off position. To disconnect the set
completely, pull the plug from the mains.
On volume adjustment
• Adjust the volume so as not to trouble neighbours. Sound carries very easily at night time. Therefore, closing the
windows or using headphones is suggested.
• When using headphones, adjust the volume so as to avoid excessive levels, as hearing damage may result.
On handling the remote control
• Handle the remote control with care. Do not drop or step on it, or spill liquid of any kind onto it.
• Do not place the remote control in a location near a heat source, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, or in a
damp room.
On cleaning the cabinet
• Be sure to unplug the mains lead before cleaning.
• Clean the cabinet with a soft cloth lightly dampened. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline cleaner,
scouring powder or solvent, such as alcohol or benzine, or antistatic spray.
• Note that material deterioration or screen coating degradation may occur if the TV is exposed to a volatile solvent,
such as alcohol, thinner, benzine or insecticide, or if prolonged contact is maintained with rubber or vinyl
materials.
• The ventilation holes can accumulate dust over a period of time and the accumulated dust may make the cooling
function less effective. To prevent this, we recommend removing the dust periodically (once a month) using a
vacuum cleaner.
On handling and cleaning the screen surface
To avoid screen degradation, follow the points mentioned below. Do not push on or scratch with hard objects, or
throw anything at the screen. The screen may be damaged.
•
•
•
•
Be sure to unplug the mains lead before cleaning.
Do not touch the TV after operating continuously for along period as the display panel becomes hot.
We recommend that the screen surface is touched as little as possible.
Clean the screen with a soft cloth lightly moistened. Cleaning with dirty cleaning cloth may result in damage to
the TV set. Never use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent, such as alcohol or benzine. This type
of contact may result in damage to the screen surface.
