Important Information

(1) The long time (max. 2 hours) use of TV game on the set is not recommended since the signal from TV game may be the cause of damage on picture projection tubes on the set.

(2) Do not allow a still picture to be displayed for an extended period, as this can cause a permanent afterimage to remain on the Projection TV screen.

Examples of still pictures include logos, video games, computer images, teletext and images displayed in 16 : 9 mode.

If still picture cannot be avoided, reduce the brightness and contrast levels of the picture to minimize any damage that might occur.

(3) In order to minimize any damage to the projection tubes, this set uses the PICTURE SHIFT function

(Refer to page 35) to change (shift) the entire picture approximately 2 mm every 15 minutes.
