Power
This set operates on a mains supply of 230V AC, 50Hz. In the
event of thunderstorms or powercuts, please pull out the aerial
plug, mains plug and telephone plug (wall socket end) and
unscrew the satellite 'F' plug. The use of aerial and telephone line
surge protectors is also recommended. These can be purchased
from your dealer.
Wiring
This set is supplied with a BS 1363 approved 13 amp mains plug,
fused at 5 amp. When replacing the fuse always use a 5 amp BS
1362, BSI or ASTA approved type. Never use this plug with the
fuse cover omitted. To obtain a replacement fuse cover contact
your dealer or "LG Electronics U.K. Ltd.".
If the type of plug supplied is not suitable for the mains sockets in
your home, then the plug should be removed and a suitable type
fitted. Please refer to the wiring instructions below:

Note : Satellite 16:9 Wide screen. Some TV stations (BBC)
broadcast programmes in Wide screen 16:9 format on Digital
Satellite but the actual picture has black bands at the side showing
a smaller 14:9 display. This has done by the broadcaster to retain
compatibility with non wide screen TV's. Pressing the ARC button
will not expend the picture any further as the broadcast is actually
in 16:9 mode. If you view the same programme on terrestrial
analogue the picture will probably be broadcast in 4:3 and
therefore the ARC will expand the picture to 16:9 mode. This is not
a fault of the TV but is due to the way some broadcasters transmit
their programmes differently on digital and analogue formats.
