periods as the ventilation
openings may become hot.
This does not affect the
operation or performance of
the product.
yyPeriodically examine the cord of your appliance,
and if its appearance indicates damage or
deterioration, unplug it, discontinue use of the
appliance, and have the cord replaced with
an exact replacement part by an authorized
servicer.
yyPrevent dust collecting on
the power plug pins or outlet.
This may cause a fire
hazard.
yyProtect the power cord from
physical or mechanical
abuse, such as being
twisted, kinked, pinched,
closed in a door, or walked
upon. Pay particular
attention to plugs, wall
outlets, and the point where
the cord exits the appliance.
yyDo not press strongly upon
the panel with a hand or
sharp object such as nail,
pencil or pen, or make a
scratch on it.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
yyRefer all servicing to
qualified service personnel.
Servicing is required when
the apparatus 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 apparatus,
the apparatus has been
exposed to rain or moisture,
does not operate normally,
or has been dropped.
yyIf the product feels cold to
the touch, there may be
a small “flicker” when it is
turned on. This is normal,
there is nothing wrong with
product.
yyThe panel is a high
technology display product
with resolution of two million
to six million pixels. You
may see tiny black dots and/
or brightly coloured dots
(red, blue or green) at a
size of 1 ppm on the panel.
This does not indicate a
malfunction and does not
affect the performance and
reliability of the product.
This phenomenon also
occurs in third-party
products and is not subject
to exchange or refund.
yyYou may find different
brightness and colour of the
panel depending on your
viewing position(left/right/
top/down).
This phenomenon occurs
due to the characteristic
of the panel. It is not
related with the product
performance, and it is not
malfunction.
ENGLISH
ENG
yyContact the service centre
once a year to clean the
internal parts of the product.
Accumulated dust can cause
mechanical failure.
7
y yDisplaying a still image (e.g., broadcasting
channel logo, on-screen menu, scene from a
video game) for a prolonged time may cause
damage to the screen, resulting in retention of
the image, which is known as image sticking.
The warranty does not cover the product for
image sticking.
Avoid displaying a fixed image on your
television’s screen for a prolonged period (2
or more hours for LCD, 1 or more hours for
Plasma).
Also, if you watch the TV at a ratio of 4:3 for
a long time, image sticking may occur on the
borders of the panel.
This phenomenon also occurs in third-party
products and is not subject to exchange or
refund.
yyGenerated Sound
“Cracking” noise: A cracking noise that occurs
when watching or turning off the TV is generated
by plastic thermal contraction due to temperature and humidity. This noise is common for
products where thermal deformation is required.
Electrical circuit humming/panel buzzing: A
low level noise is generated from a high-speed
switching circuit, which supplies a large amount
of current to operate a product. It varies depending on the product.
This generated sound does not affect the
performance and reliability of the product.

»» Only using furniture that can safely support
the television.
»» Ensuring the television is not overhanging the
edge of the supporting furniture.
»» Not placing the television on tall furniture (for
example, cupboards or bookcases) without
anchoring both the furniture and the television
to a suitable support.
»» Not standing the televisions on cloth or other
materials placed between the television and
supporting furniture.
»» Educating children about the dangers of
climbing on furniture to reach the television or
its controls.

►► To tune channel to following physical/major/minor number.
Transmission [m][a][ ][0][ ][Data00][ ][Data01]
[ ][Data02][ ][Data03][ ][Data04][ ][Data05][Cr]
Digital channels have a Physical, Major, and Minor channel
number. The Physical number is the actual digital channel
number, the Major is the number that the channel should be
mapped to, and the Minor is the sub-channel. Since the ATSC
tuner automatically maps the channel from the Major / Minor
number, the Physical number is not required when sending a
command in Digital.
* Analogue Terrestrial/Cable
Data 00: Physical Channel Number

Two bytes are available for each major and minor channel
data, but usually the low byte is used alone (high byte is 0).
