Precautions
Viewing the TV
• View the TV in moderate light, as viewing the TV in
poor light or during long period of time, strains your
eyes.
• When using headphones, adjust the volume so as to
avoid excessive levels, as hearing damage may result.
LCD Screen
• Although the LCD screen is made with high-precision
technology and 99.99% or more of the pixels are
effective, black dots may appear or bright points of light
(red, blue, or green) may appear constantly on the LCD
screen. This is a structural property of the LCD screen
and is not a malfunction.
• Do not push or scratch the front filter, or place objects on
top of this TV set. The image may be uneven or the LCD
screen may be damaged.
• If this TV set is used in a cold place, a smear may occur
in the picture or the picture may become dark. This does
not indicate a failure. These phenomena disappear as the
temperature rises.
• Ghosting may occur when still pictures are displayed
continuously. It may disappear after a few moments.
• The screen and cabinet get warm when this TV set is in
use. This is not a malfunction.
• The LCD screen contains a small amount of liquid
crystal. Some fluorescent tubes used in this TV set also
contain mercury. Follow your local ordinances and
regulations for disposal.
Handling and cleaning the screen surface/cabinet
of the TV set
Be sure to unplug the mains lead connected to the TV set
from mains socket before cleaning.
To avoid material degradation or screen coating
degradation, observe the following precautions.
• To remove dust from the screen surface/cabinet, wipe
gently with a soft cloth. If dust is persistent, wipe with a
soft cloth slightly moistened with a diluted mild
detergent solution.
• Never use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline/acid
cleaner, scouring powder, or volatile solvent, such as
alcohol, benzene, thinner or insecticide. Using such
materials or maintaining prolonged contact with rubber
or vinyl materials may result in damage to the screen
surface and cabinet material.
• When adjusting the angle of the TV set, move it slowly
so as to prevent the TV set from moving or slipping off
from its table stand.
Optional Equipment
Keep optional components or any equipment emitting
electromagnetic radiation away from the TV set. Otherwise
picture distortion and/or noisy sound may occur.

control them together.
Be sure to connect the equipment correctly, and
make the necessary settings.
To make the control for HDMI settings
The control for HDMI settings must be set on both
the TV side and connected equipment side. See
“HDMI Set-up” on page 28 for the TV side settings.
For settings on the connected equipment, refer to the
operating instructions for that equipment.
Control for HDMI functions
