SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
❏
❏
❏
Operate the TV only on 120 V AC.
One blade of the power plug is wider than the other for
safety purposes and will fit into the power outlet only one
way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, contact your dealer.
If any liquid or solid object falls into the TV, unplug it and
have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it
further.
CAUTION
When using TV games, computers, and similar products
with your TV, keep the brightness and contrast functions at
low settings. If a fixed (non-moving) pattern is left on the
screen for long periods of time at a high brightness or
contrast setting, the image can be permanently imprinted
onto the screen. Continuously watching the same channel
can cause the imprint of station logos onto the TV screen.
These types of imprints are not covered by your warranty
because they are the results of misuse.
Owner’s Record
The model and serial numbers are located on the front cover
of this manual and at the rear of your TV.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
For your protection, please read these instructions
completely, and keep this manual for future reference.
Carefully observe and comply with all warnings, cautions
and instructions placed on the set, or described in the
operating instructions or service manual.
WARNING
To guard against injury, the following basic safety
precautions should be observed in the installation, use, and
servicing of the set.
Use
Power Sources
This set should be operated only from
the type of power source indicated on
the serial/model plate. If you are not
sure of the type of electrical power
supplied to your home, consult your
dealer or local power company. For
those sets designed to operate from
battery power, refer to the operating instructions.
Grounding or Polarization
This set may be equipped with a
polarized alternating current line plug
(a plug having one blade wider than
other). This plug will fit into the
power outlet only one way. This is a
safety feature. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If
the plug still fails to fit, contact your electrician to replace your
obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
polarized plug.
For the set with a three-wire grounding type AC plug
This plug will only fit into a
grounding-type power outlet. This is
a safety feature. If you are unable to
insert the plug into the outlet, contact
your electrician to have a suitable
outlet installed. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the grounding plug.
Overloading
Do not overload wall
outlets, extension
cords or convenience
receptacles beyond
their capacity, since
this can result in fire
or electric shock.
Always turn the set off when it is not to be used. When the
set is left unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet as a precaution against the
possibility of an internal malfunction that could create a fire
hazard.
Do not disconnect the antenna or the power cord during a
heavy storm. Lightning may strike while you are holding
the cable or cord, causing serious injury. Turn off your TV
and wait for the weather to improve.
Object and Liquid Entry
Never push objects of any kind into the set
through the cabinet slots as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short out parts
that could result in a fire or electric shock.
Never spill liquid of any kind on the set.
Corrosion
Do not use the set close to the ocean since it may cause the
set to be exposed to excess salt, corrosion, and internal
damage and will deteriorate its performance. If you expose
the TV to these conditions, you should take the necessary
precautions to reduce the humidity and temperature of the
area in which the set is located.
Attachments
Do not use attachments not recommended
by the manufacturer, as they may cause
hazards.
Do not place any objects, especially heavy
objects, on top of the set. The object may
fall from the set, causing injury.
Cleaning
Unplug the set from the wall outlet before
cleaning or polishing it. Do not use liquid
cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a cloth
lightly dampened with water for cleaning
the exterior of the set.
If a snapping or popping sound from a TV set
is continuous or frequent while the TV is
operating, unplug the TV and consult your
dealer or service technician. It is normal for
some TV sets to make occasional snapping or
popping sounds, particularly when being
turned on or off.
Installation
Always use two or more people to lift or move the set. The
set is heavy and the bottom surface is flat. Serious injury can
result from trying to move the set by yourself alone, or from
unsteady handling.
Install the set on a stable, level surface.
Water and Moisture
Do not use power-line
operated sets near water —
for example, near a bathtub,
washbowl, kitchen sink, or
laundry tub, in a wet
basement, or near a
swimming pool, etc.
Accessories
Do not place the set on
an unstable cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, table,
or shelf. The set may
fall, causing serious
injury to a child or an
adult, and serious
damage to the set. Use
only a cart or stand recommended by the manufacturer for the
specific model of TV. Any mounting of the product should
follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and should use a
mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer. An
appliance and cart combination should be moved with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause
the appliance and cart combination to overturn.
Ventilation
The slots and openings in the cabinet and in the back or
bottom are provided for necessary ventilation. To ensure
reliable operation of the set, and to protect it from
overheating, these slots and openings must never be
blocked or covered.
KD-27/32/36FS170
2-670-362-21(1)
•
Never cover the slots and openings
with a cloth or other materials.
•
Never block the slots and openings
by placing the set on a bed, sofa, rug
or other similar surface.
•
Never place the set in a confined
space, such as a bookcase or built-in
cabinet, unless proper ventilation is
provided.
•
Do not place the set near or over a
radiator or heat register, or where it is
exposed to direct sunlight.
Service
Damage Requiring Service
Unplug the set from the wall outlet and refer servicing to
qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
•
When the power cord or plug
is damaged or frayed.
•
If liquid has been spilled
into the set or objects have
fallen into the product.
•
If the set has been exposed to
rain or water.
•
If the set has been subject to
excessive shock by being
dropped, or the cabinet has
been damaged.
•
If the set does not operate
normally when following the operating
instructions. Adjust only those controls
that are specified in the operating
instructions. Improper adjustment of
other controls may result in damage and
will often require extensive work by a
qualified technician to restore the set to normal operation.
•
When the set exhibits a distinct change in
performance — this indicates a need for service.
Power-Cord Protection
Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over the
power cord, and do not place the set where the
power cord is subject to wear or abuse.
Antennas
Outdoor Antenna Grounding
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.
WHEN INSTALLING AN OUTDOOR ANTENNA
SYSTEM, EXTREME CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN TO KEEP
FROM CONTACTING SUCH POWER LINES OR
CIRCUITS AS CONTACT WITH THEM IS ALMOST
INVARIABLY FATAL.
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 USA and
Section 54 of the Canadian Electrical Code in Canada
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 unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.
Antenna Grounding According to the NEC

Servicing
Do not attempt to service the set yourself
since opening the cabinet may expose you
to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer
all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Replacement Parts
When replacement parts are required, be
sure the service technician certifies in
writing that he has used replacement
parts specified by the manufacturer that
have the same characteristics as the
original parts. Unauthorized
substitutions may result in fire, electric
shock, or other hazards.
Safety Check
Upon completion of any service or repairs to
the set, ask the service technician to perform
routine safety checks (as specified by the
manufacturer) to determine that the set is in
safe operating condition, and to so certify.
When the set reaches the end of its useful life,
improper disposal could result in a picture
tube implosion. Ask a qualified service
technician to dispose of the set.
Lightning
For added protection for this television receiver during a
lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused
for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and
disconnect the antenna. This will prevent damage to the
receiver due to lightning and power-line surges.
