Safety Instructions
ENG
◆ Do not expose the television to extreme temperature conditions or to extreme humidity conditions.
◆ Do not expose the television to direct sunlight and other sources of heat.
◆ Do not expose the television to any liquids.
◆ Never put objects of any kind into the television, and do not place a water-containing vessel on the
television.
◆ During a storm conditions (especially when there is lightning) unplug the television from the mains
socket and aerial.
◆ Do not step on or twist the power cord.
◆ Do not overload wall outlets or extension cords as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
◆ Please use a soft and dry cloth (not containing volatile matter) when you clean the TV.
◆ If the television is broken, do not try to repair it yourself. Contact qualified service personnel.
◆ If the remote control is not used for a long period of time, remove the batteries and store it in a
cool, dry place.
◆ Do not drop the remote control.
☛
Displaying any stationary images that exceed the long time, it can cause uneven aging of
picture tubes (CRTs) that leave subtle, but permanent burned-in ghost images in the
television picture. To avoid this, vary the programming and images, and primarily display full
screen moving images, not stationary patterns or dark bars.
This device is not for use in industrial environments.

Automatic Degaussing to Remove Colour Patches
ENG
A degaussing coil is mounted around the picture tube so that external degaussing after moving the
receiver is normally unnecessary. If the receiver is moved or placed in a different direction, or, a
coloured patch appears on the screen, the main power switch must be switched to the off position for
120minutes or the power cord must be unplugged for the same interval to allow the automatic degauss
circuits to operate properly.
For safety, the receiver should be switched off from the main power switch when it is unattended.
☛
Magnetic fields can cause your television to malfunction. Degaussing is a process that
neutralises magnetic fields.

When playing CD-R/MP3 discs, please follow the recommendations below:
◆ Your MP3 files should be ISO 9660 or JOLIET format.
ISO 9660 format and Joliet MP3 files are compatible with Microsoft's DOS and Windows, and with Apple's Mac.
These two formats are the most widely used.
◆ When naming your MP3 files do not exceed 8 characters, and place “.mp3” as the file extension.
General name format of: Title.mp3. When composing your title, make sure that you use 8 characters or less,
have no spaces in the name, and avoid the use of special characters including: (.,/,\,=,+).
◆ Use a decompression transfer rate of at least 128 Kbps when recording MP3 files.
Sound quality with MP3 files basically depends on the rate of compression/decompression you choose. Getting
audio CD quality sound requires an analog/digital sampling rate (conversion to MP3 format) of at least 128 Kbps
and up to 160 Kbps. However, choosing higher rates, like 192 Kbps or more, only rarely give better sound
quality. Conversely, files with sampling rates below 128 Kbps will not be played properly.
◆ Do not try recording copyright protected MP3 files.
Certain “securized” files are encrypted and code protected to prevent illegal copying. These files are of the
following types: Windows MediaTM (registered trade mark of Microsoft Inc) and SDMITM (registered trademark of
The SDMI Foundation). You cannot copy such files.
◆ Your DVD player only accepts one level of file directory.
Consequently you must choose:
- either to save all your MP3 recording files at the root of the disc;
- and/or create folders in the directory for each artist or music type (e.g.classical, rock, jazz, etc)
◆ Important: The above recommendations cannot be taken as a guarantee that the DVD player will play MP3
recordings, or as an assurance of sound quality. You should note that certain technologies and methods for
MP3 file recording on CD-Rs prevent optimal playback of these files on your DVD player (degraded sound
quality and in some cases, inability of the player to read the files).
◆ This unit can play a maximum of 500 files and 300 folders per disc.

Wiring the Mains Power Supply Plug (UK Only)
ENG
IMPORTANT NOTICE
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse. The value of the fuse is
indicated on the pin face of the plug and, if it requires replacing, a fuse approved to BSI1362 of the same rating
must be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted if the cover is detachable. If a replacement fuse cover is required,
it must be of the same colour as the pin face of the plug. Replacement covers are available from your dealer.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power
point, you should obtain a suitable safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer for assistance.
However, if there is no alternative to cut off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug.
Do NOT connect the plug to a mains socket as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
BLUE - NEUTRAL
BROWN - LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as
follows:
The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or BLACK.
The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured BROWN or RED.
WARNING: DO NOT CONNECT EITHER WIRE TO THE EARTH TERMINAL, WHICH IS MARKED WITH THE
LETTER E OR BY THE EARTH SYMBOL , OR COLOURED GREEN OR GREEN AND YELLOW.
