Important Safety Precautions & Instructions
This product is designed and manufactured to operate within defined design limits, and misuse may result in
electric shock or fire. To prevent the product from being damaged, the following rules should be observed for the
installation, use and maintenance of the product. Read the following safety instructions before operating the
display. Keep these instructions in a safe place for future reference.
In order to prevent potential danger, always observe these basic safety precautions and instructions when
installing, operating, and cleaning your KTC. This product has been engineered and manufactured with the
highest priority on safety. However, improper use can result in electric shock and / or fire.
To ensure your safety and prolong the service life of your Liquid Crystal Television, please read the following
precautions carefully before using the product.
WARNING: Do not expose this product to rain or moisture.
WARNING: Do not remove the cover. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required
when the KTC 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 unit, it has been exposed to rain or moisture,
does not operate normally, or has been dropped.
•
The KTC is for indoor use only.
•
Unplug the KTC before performing care and
maintenance.
•
Do not block the ventilation holes on the back of the
KTC at any time.
•
Keep your Multimedia KTC out of direct sunlight and
heat sources.
•
Electricity is used to perform many useful functions, but
it can also cause personal injuries and property damage
if improperly handled. To avoid the risk of electric shock
or component damage, power off the KTC before
connecting other components (PANTV1512).
•
Unplug the power cord before cleaning the KTC. Only
use the included custom bezel cleaning cloth for
cleaning the KTC bezel. Do not use a liquid, spray, or
abrasive cleaners for cleaning the product.
•
Only use the AC adapter included with the
KTC. Using any other power adapter could
damage the unit and will void your warranty.
•
When moving the KTC from an area of low
temperature to an area of high temperature,
condensation may form on the housing. Do
not turn on the KTC immediately after the
move to avoid causing fire, electric shock or
component damage.
•
Do not place the KTC on an unstable cart,
stand, or table. If the KTC falls, it can injure a
person and cause serious damage to the
appliance. Use only a cart or stand
recommended by the manufacturer or sold
with the KTC.
•
Do not install the product in an area with
heavy dust or high humidity which may cause
fire or electric shock.
6
•
Always use the accessories recommended by the
manufacturer to insure compatibility.
•
Protect the power cord. Route power cords so that they
are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items
placed on or against them. Pay particular attention to
the plug where the cord attaches to the KTC,
convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit
from the apparatus.
•
Do not use the KTC in a portrait format (by
rotating 90 degrees) under high temperature
environment (25°C or higher), since this
would retard heat dissipation and would
eventually damage the KTC.
•
Any heat source should maintain a distance
of at least 5 feet away from the KTC, i.e.
radiator, heater, oven, amplifier etc. Do not
install the product too close to anything that
produces smoke or moisture. Operating the
product close to smoke or moisture may
cause fire or electric shock.
•
The KTC should be operated only from the type of
power source indicated on the label. If you are not sure
of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your
dealer or local power company.
•
The power cable must be replaced when using different
voltage from that specified in this User Guide. For more
information, contact your dealer.
•
•
The KTC is equipped with a three-pronged grounded
plug, a plug with a third (grounding) pin. This plug will fit
only into a grounded power outlet as a safety feature. If
your outlet does not accommodate the three-wire plug,
have an electrician install the correct outlet, or use an
adapter to ground the appliance safely. Do not defeat
the safety purpose of the grounded plug.
Do not use the product if any abnormality
occurs. If any smoke or odor becomes
apparent, unplug the power cord and contact
your dealer immediately. Do not try to repair
the product yourself.
•
Avoid using dropped or damaged appliances.
If the product is dropped and the housing is
damaged, the internal components may
function abnormally. Unplug the power cord
immediately and contact your dealer for
repair. Continued use of the product may
cause fire or electric shock.
•
Hold the power connector when removing the
power cable. Pulling the power cable itself
may damage the wires inside the cable and
cause fire or electric shocks.
•
To avoid risk of electric shock, do not touch
the power cord connector with wet hands.
•
Insert the remote control batteries in
accordance with instructions. Incorrect
polarities may cause damage and leakage of
the batteries, operator injury and
contamination of the remote control.
•
Keep the product away from moisture. Do not
expose this appliance to rain or moisture. If
water penetrates into the product, unplug the
power cord and contact your dealer.
Continuous use in this case may result in fire
or electric shock.
•
Slots and openings in the back and bottom of
the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To
ensure reliable operation of the KTC and to
protect it from overheating, be sure these
openings are not blocked or covered. Do not
place the KTC in a bookcase or cabinet
unless proper ventilation is provided.
•
Do not overload power strips and extension cords.
Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
•
The wall outlet should be installed near the equipment
and should be easily accessible.
•
Do not touch the power cord during thunderstorms. To
avoid electric shock, avoid handling the power cord
during electrical storms.
•
Unplug the unit during a lightning storm to protect the
KTC from damage due to power surges.
•
Unplug the power cord from the outlet when the unit is
not in use or when it will not be used for a long period of
time.
•
Do not attempt to repair or service the product yourself.
Opening or removing the back cover may expose you to
high voltages, the risk of electric shock, and other
hazards. If repair is required, please contact your dealer
and refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Never push any object into the ventilation slots of the
KTC. Do not place any objects on the top of the
Product. It could short circuit parts causing a fire or
electric shock. Never spill liquids on the KTC.
•
•
If any of the following occurs, please contact the dealer:
o The power connector fails or frays.
o
Liquid sprays or any object drops into the KTC.
o
The Display is exposed to rain or other moisture.
o
The Display is dropped or damaged in any way.

Cleaning the KTC
1. Unplug the power cable from the electrical wall outlet before cleaning the KTC.
2. Do not use volatile solvent (alcohol, rosin, and toluene) to clean the KTC. These types of chemicals might
damage the housing and the LCD glass.
Cleaning the Screen
Treat the screen gently, it is made of glass and can break easily. To clean fingerprints or dust from the LCD
screen, we recommend using a soft, non-abrasive cloth such as a camera lens cloth to clean. If you use a
commercial LCD Cleaning Kit, do not apply the cleaning liquid directly to the LCD screen; use a cloth moistened
with the liquid.
Cleaning the Bezel and Remote Control
1. Use a 100% cotton cloth or micro-fiber cloth for cleaning.
2. If the remote control or bezel is so dirty that you cannot simply dry wipe it, lightly dampen the wiping
material with clean water and wipe again. Wipe the display with a dry micro-fiber cloth or 100% cotton
cloth afterwards.
CAUTION: Wring the water out of the cloth before cleaning the bezel or remote in order to prevent water from
penetrating into the electronics.
Television Antenna Connection Protection
External Television Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is to be connected to the KTC, make sure that the antenna or cable system
is electrically grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges and static charges. Article 810 of the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPSA 70, provides information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and
supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of the grounding conductors,
location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements of the grounding
electrode.
8
Lightning Protection
For added protection of the KTC during a lightning storm or when it is left unattended or unused for long periods
of time, unplug the KTC from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system.
Power Lines
Do not locate the antenna near overhead light or power circuits, or where it could fall into such power lines or
circuits.

INSTALLATION
Please read the installation instructions carefully before performing the installation.
The power consumption of the display is approximately 50 watts. Always use the power cord designated for the
product. When an extension cord is required, use one with the correct power rating. The cord must be grounded
and the grounding feature must not be defeated.
The product should be installed on a flat surface to avoid tipping. Space should be maintained between the back
of the product and the wall for proper ventilation. If you would like to mount the KTC onto the wall or under a
cabinet, refer to page 11 for mounting instructions.
IMPORTANT: Always install the product with the screen in landscape orientation. Any 90° clockwise or
counterclockwise installation may induce poor ventilation and successive component damage.

Back Panel Input Connectors
The following descriptions are for connections from left to right.
1. YPbPr – Connection port for DVD players, or satellite / cable set-top boxes that use component cables.
From right to left, connect green, blue, and red for video, and then connect white for left channel audio,
and red for right channel audio.
2. TV – Connection for digital or analog cable without the cable box or over-the-airwave antennas. The tuner
is a hybrid tuner that tunes to both analog and digital channels. This connection uses coaxial RF cable.
For over-the airwave digital stations, check the following website: http://www.antennaweb.org.
3. AV – Composite connects to devices that use composite video cables such as VCR or camcorder or
video game consoles. The S-Video connector is associated with AV’s video. Connect the video portion
with either the yellow connector or the S-Video connector. Do NOT connect both video connectors at the
same time, because the audio connection is shared.
4. VGA - Connection port connects to a PC for video using VGA cable. Connect your audio cable to the
VGA Stereo input if you want sound out of the VGA video source.
5. VGA STEREO INPUT - Connection port if you want to provide audio to the TV when using a PC. The
sources use 3.5mm mini-jack audio cable to provide audio for PCs with VGA connection.
6. HDMI – HDMI connects to devices that use HDMI cable, such as Blu-ray or HD DVD player, or HD cable /
satellite set-top box. This connection port receives pure digital audio and high definition signal through
one single cable. This port also can accept a HDCP video device for video.
7. DC - Connection for providing electricity to the KTC; connects to the AC power adapter which connects to
the AC power source. (It is important to use only the AC adapter included with the KTC.)

slideshow. This feature is present on all connections.
12
Connecting Speakers to the KTC
The KTC has built-in speakers, but you can also connect external speakers or an external amplifier, depending on
the model of your KTC. Some models come with an external audio jack. If your KTC has an audio jack, you can
plug speakers into the audio jack located on the right side of the KTC (cable not included).
Power on your KTC
After you have connected the appropriate cables and power cord, press the POWER button on the remote control
or the power button on the KTC, located in the middle of the speaker bar on the bottom of the screen.
The power button on the KTC has an indicator light that lights red when the KTC is off and lights blue when on.
The remote control sensor is also located in the KTC’s power button. When using the remote control, point
directly towards the sensor for best response.
WARNING: The KTC defaults to the TV mode when shipped from the factory. The
first time you power it on, you may receive the following messages:
‘No Database’
If you are connected to cable or a TV antenna, and the message ‘No Database’ appears, the KTC is
not receiving a strong enough signal for the current channel to be displayed. Follow the Initial Tuner
Setup instructions on page 20 to perform the necessary auto channel scan.

Aspect Ratio
The KTC has a widescreen display, but most TV programs are still broadcasting in a square format. Therefore,
the KTC offers two display options for viewing videos.
There are two main types of signal formats, 16:9 (KTC’s 16:9 is named normal) and 4:3. Use the Aspect option
(in the KTC OSD SETUP menu) to choose between both modes and other available modes.
1. Normal
This mode will stretch the picture to a widescreen ratio. If you have a perfect 16:9 ratio picture you will not
see any black bars. If you are watching a widescreen movie in 1.85:1 or 2.35:1 ratio, you will still get
black bars on the top and bottom of the screen.
27
2. 4:3
Most analog TV channels have 4:3 signal formats. If the original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is
preserved, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image. This aspect keeps that aspect
ratio and shows you the black bars on the side.
3. Zoom
When watching a 4:3 aspect ratio TV or movie, this mode zooms in to cut off most of the black bars on
the side while preserving the 16:9 ratio. Because of the zoom, the top and bottom will be cut off as well.
4. Cinema
Even with this widescreen TV, when watching a movie you will still get some black bars on the top and
bottom. This aspect ratio will zoom in to cut off most of the black bars on the top and bottom. Because of
the zoom, the left and right will be cut off as well.
Program Ratings
To block channels you don’t want your children to watch, you can filter them with the ratings functions under the
OSD LOCK option. MPAA allows you to control ratings for movies. For regular TV programs you can use USTV
settings, which allow you to filter what content you want at each age level, TV-Y, to TV-MA. Below are
descriptions for each setting.
28
USTV Rating
TV-Y (USTV) – For All Children
For programs designed to be appropriate for all children. Whether animated or live-action, the themes and
elements in this program are specifically designed for a very young audience, including children from ages 2-6.
This program is not expected to frighten younger children.
TV-Y7 (USTV) – Directed to Older Children
For programs designed for children age 7 and above. It may be more appropriate for children who have acquired
the developmental skills needed to distinguish between make-believe and reality. Themes and elements in this
program may include mild fantasy violence or comedic violence, or may frighten children under the age of 7.
Therefore, parents may want to consider the suitability of this program for their very young children. Note: For
those programs where fantasy violence may be more intense or more combative than other programs in this
category, such programs will be designated
TV-Y7-FV.
TV-G (USTV) – General Audience
Most parents would find these programs suitable for all ages. Although this rating does not signify a program
designed specifically for children, most parents may let younger children watch this program unattended. It
contains little or no violence, no strong language and little or no sexual dialogue or situations.
TV-PG (USTV) – Parental Guidance Suggested
For programs that contain material that parents may find unsuitable for younger children. Many parents may want
to watch it with their younger children. The theme itself may call for parental guidance and/or the program
contains one or more of the following: moderate violence (V), some sexual situations (S), infrequent coarse
language (L), or some suggestive dialogue (D).
TV-14 (USTV) – Parents Strongly Cautioned
For programs that contain some material that many parents would find unsuitable for children less than 14 years
of age. Parents are strongly urged to exercise greater care in monitoring this program and are cautioned against
letting children under the age of 14 watches unattended. This program contains one or more of the following:
intense violence (V), intense sexual situations (S), strong coarse language (L), or intensely suggestive dialogue
(D).
TV-MA (USTV) – Mature Audience Only
For programs specifically designed to be viewed by adults and therefore may be unsuitable for children under 17.
This program contains one or more of the following: graphic violence (V), explicit sexual activity (S), or crude
indecent language (L).

X (MPAA)
X is an older rating that is unified with NC-17 but may be encoded in the data of older movies.
Browsing Channels
Browsing through the entire channel list on the TV can be tedious. This TV offers two ‘shortcut’ methods for
avoiding the need to scroll through all the channels to find the ones you want to watch, Favorites List and Channel
Skip.
Note: The available channel choices for both the Favorites List and Channel Skip options are those on the
scanned list; therefore these functions are only available after you perform an Auto Scan.
Favorites List – allows you to quickly scroll through only those channels you may frequently watch. You can add
or remove channels to your Favorites list when desired.
Channel Skip – allows you to select channels that you don’t want displayed when you use the CH+ or CHbuttons to browse channels. For instance, some channels with limited signals won’t display clear, or some
channels have content that you won’t ever want to view. By designating them as ‘skipped’, those channels won’t
be displayed while you browse channels.

SWITCHING A CHANNEL
OR SOURCE CHANGES
THE VOLUME
Different channels and inputs will sometimes have this effect because the channel
signal’s own volume is already loud. There is no way remove this completely. The
KTC has an AUTO VOLUME LEVEL function that can combat this type of effect;
make sure that function is turned on.
THERE IS NOISE OR
TRASH PIXELS ON THE
SCREEN
When your KTC’s resolution is higher than the digital channel’s broadcast resolution,
the signal is up-converted to match your TV’s resolution. Up-converting can cause
this type of effect.

The KTC is an ideal platform for viewing High Definition Content. The best image
quality can be achieved by HDMI, YPbPr (Component), then VGA. However, due to
variances in broadcast practices, it is possible some image distortions can occur.
TIPS FOR LETTERBOX
CONTENT USERS
Letterboxed (Widescreen) versions of DVD movies are most commonly formatted for
standard 4:3 TVs. The KTC has the capability of expanding this content so the entire
screen is filled at the expense of the image proportion. To use this function press the
aspect button on the remote control and cycle among the available options.
I CANNOT FIND THE
VOLUME AND CHANNEL
CHANGING BUTTONS
