Precautions When Displaying a Still Image
A still image may cause permanent damage to the TV screen.
• Do not display a still image on the LCD panel for more than 2 hours as it can cause screen image retention.
This image retention is also known as "screen burn".
To avoid such image retention, reduce the degree of brightness and contrast of the screen when displaying a still image.
•
Watching the LCD TV in 4:3 format for a long period of time may leave traces of borders displayed on the
left, right and center of the screen caused by the difference of light emission on the screen.
Playing a DVD or a game console may cause a similar effect to the screen.
Damages caused by the above effect are not covered by the Warranty.
•
Displaying still images from Video games and PC for longer than a certain period of time may produce partial after-images.
To prevent this effect, reduce the ‘brightness’ and ‘contrast’ when displaying still images.

Wiring the Mains Power Supply Plug(UK Only)
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 but 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.
