(Can differ by country):
It is recommended that appliances be placed upon a
dedicated circuit; that is, a single outlet circuit which
powers only that appliance and has no additional
outlets or branch circuits. Check the specification
page of this owner’s manual to be certain. Do
not connect too many appliances to the same AC
power outlet as this could result in fire or electric
shock. Do not overload wall outlets. Overloaded
wall outlets, loose or damaged wall outlets,
extension cords, frayed power cords, or damaged or
cracked wire insulation are dangerous. Any of these
conditions could result in electric shock or fire.
Periodically 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 service. Protect 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. Do

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
yyGrounding
(Except for devices which are not grounded.)
Ensure that you connect the earth ground wire to
prevent possible electric shock (i.e. a TV with a
three-prong grounded AC plug must be connected
to a three-prong grounded AC outlet). If grounding
methods are not possible, have a qualified
electrician install a separate circuit breaker. Do not
try to ground the unit by connecting it to telephone
wires, lightening rods, or gas pipes.

authority to operate this product.
yyANTENNAS Outdoor Antenna Grounding
(Can differ by country):
If an outdoor antenna is installed, follow the
precautions below. An outdoor antenna system
should not be located in the vicinity of overhead
power lines or other electric light or power circuits,
or where it can come in contact with such power
lines or circuits as death or serious injury can occur.
Be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to
provide some protection against voltage surges
and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the
National Electrical Code (NEC) in the U.S.A. provides
information with respect to proper grounding of the
mast and supporting structure, grounding of the
lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of
grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge

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.
yyTake care not to touch the ventilation openings.
When watching the TV for a long period, the
ventilation openings may become hot. This does
not affect the performance of the product or cause
defects in the product.
yyIf a fixed image displays on the TV screen for a long
period of time, it will be imprinted and become a
permanent disfigurement on the screen. This is
“image burn” or “burn-in” and not covered by the
warranty.
yyIf the aspect ratio of the TV is set to 4:3 for a
long period of time, image burn may occur on the
letterboxed area of the screen.
yyAvoid displaying a fixed image on the TV screen for
a long period of time (2 or more hours for LCD, 1
or more hours for the Plasma TV) to prevent image
burn.

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.

CHILD SAFETY:
It Makes A Difference How and Where
You Use Your Flat Panel Display
Congratulations on your purchase! As you enjoy your new product,
please keep these safety tips in mind:
THE ISSUE
yy The home theater entertainment experience is a growing trend and
larger flat panel displays are popular purchases. However, flat panel
displays are not always supported on the proper stands or installed
according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
yy Flat panel displays that are inappropriately situated on dressers,
bookcases, shelves, desks, speakers, chests or carts may fall over and
cause injury.
THIS MANUFACURER CARES!
yy The consumer electronics industry is committed to making home
entertainment enjoyable and safe.
TUNE INTO SAFETY
yy O n e s i z e d o e s N O T f i t a l l . F o l l o w t h e m a n u f a c t u r e r ’ s
recommendations for the safe installation and use of your flat panel
display.
yy Carefully read and understand all enclosed instructions for proper use
of this product.
yy Don’t allow children to climb on or play with furniture and television
sets.
yy Don’t allow place flat panel displays on furniture that can easily be
used as steps, such as a chest of drawers.
yy Remember that children can become excited while watching
a program, especially on a “larger than life” flat panel display.
Care should be taken to place or install the display where it cannot be
pushed, pulled over, or knocked down.
yy Care should be taken to route all cords and cables connected to the
flat panel display so that they cannot be pulled or grabbed by curious
children.
WALL MOUNTING: IF YOU DECIDE TO WALL MOUNT
YOUR FLAT PANEL DISPLAY, ALWAYS:
yy Use a mount that has been recommended by the display
manufacturer and/or listed by an independent laboratory
(such as UL, CSA, ETL).
yy Follow all instructions supplied by the display and wall mount
manufacturers.
yy If you have any doubts about your ability to safely install your flat
panel display, contact your retailer about professional installation.
yy Make sure that the wall where you are mounting the display is
appropriate. Some wall mounts are not designed to be mounted
to walls with steel studs or old cinder block construction.
If you are unsure, contact a professional installer.
