Important Safety Instructions
Selecting a Suitable Environment for the TV
• The TV is very heavy. Two people are required to lift or move the TV to avoid injury.
•
Do not place the TV on an unstable or tilted cart, stand, or table. Place the TV on the
center of the stand, making sure it is fully supported on all sides.
•
Do not place the TV near water or sources of heat.
•
Do not place the TV in direct sunlight, such as in front of a window.
•
Do not place the TV in an area subject to vibration.
•
Do not place the TV or the remote control on top of or near heat-producing equipment
or in a hot location.
Note
To CATV system installers:
Article 820-40 of the NEC
provides guidelines for
proper grounding and
specifies that the cable
ground shall be connected
to the grounding system of
the building, as close to the
point of cable entry as
practical.
Setting Up the TV
7
•
Do not operate the TV in an area with high temperatures or humidity, or where large
amounts of dust are present.
•
Leave at least 12 inches (30 cm) of room around the vents on the sides of the TV and do
not block the vents. They provide ventilation and prevent the TV from overheating.
•
Do not use the TV in temperatures outside of the range of 41 to 95 °F (5 to 35 °C).
•
Do not store the TV in temperatures outside the range of 14 to 140 °F (–10 to 60 °C).
•
If you place the TV in a permanent installation near a wall, secure the TV to the wall
using screws and steel wire connected to the two screw holes on the top rear of the TV.
Plugging the TV Into a Power Source
• Use only the type of power source indicated on the TV. If you are not sure of the power
available, consult your dealer or power company.
8
Setting Up the TV
•
Place the TV near a wall outlet where the power cord can be easily unplugged.
•
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles. This
can cause fire or electric shock.
•
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug (two blades, with one wider than
the other). Connect the plug only to a compatible outlet where you can fully insert the
plug to prevent exposure of the plug blades. If you are unable to insert the plug fully, try
reversing the plug. If the provided plug does not fit your outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the outlet.
•
Do not place the TV where the power cord can be walked on. This may result in fraying
or damage to the plug.
•
Take the following precautions when plugging in the TV. Failure to comply with these
precautions could result in sparks, fire, or electric shock: Do not insert the plug into an
outlet with dust present. Do not insert the plug with wet hands. Insert the plug firmly
into the outlet.
•
Unplug the TV during lightning storms or when it will not be used for extended periods.
•
Unplug the TV from the wall outlet before cleaning.
•
Pull on the plug housing to unplug the power cord; do not pull on the cord.

Outdoor Antenna Installation and Grounding
•
It is best to have a professional technician install an antenna on the roof of a structure.
If you install an antenna yourself, be careful to avoid serious injury.
•
If an outside antenna is connected through other equipment, be sure the antenna system
is grounded so as to provide protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges.
In the U.S.A., section 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides
information on 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 electrode, and requirements for the
grounding electrode.

Setting Up the TV
•
An outdoor antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines/
electric lights or power circuits, or where it can fall onto such power lines or circuits.
When installing an outdoor antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep it from
touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
•
For added protection during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused
for long periods of time, unplug the TV from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna.
This will prevent damage due to lightning and power-line surges.
Placement for Optimum Viewing
Your TV’s screen is designed to give you great picture quality over a wide viewing angle. For
optimum viewing, place the TV so you can view it as shown below.
Sit about 6 to 10 feet away from the TV, and within 65° to the left or right.
Also make sure the stand or other support you’re using places the TV within 30° above and
below your viewing height as measured from your eyes to the center of the screen.
Suggested Supports or Stands
You can use an optional EPSON TV stand to support your TV. Order part number
LS47STD (for the LS47P1) or LS57STD (for the LS57P1) from your dealer.

the size (called the aspect ratio) by pressing the Aspect button on the remote control.
Depending on your signal and input device, you may not be able to change the aspect ratio or
be offered all of the selections listed here.
Press the Aspect button repeatedly to select any one of the screen sizes shown below. The
name of the aspect ratio appears in the upper left corner.
Normal is the default size of your video
source, if it is in standard 4:3 broadcast ratio.
Full stretches a standard 4:3 ratio image to fit
into your 16:9 ratio screen, stretching equally
on all sides.
Wide stretches a standard 4:3 ratio image to fit
into your 16:9 ratio screen, but the image size
stretches increasingly more from the center to
the sides.
Aspect

Note
You can select the aspect
ratio you’d like the TV to
use if your TV is ever unable
to detect an aspect ratio
from your TV or video input
signal. See page 63 for
instructions on selecting the
Auto Aspect setting.
Zoom enlarges the entire screen and cuts off
some of the top and bottom for a closer view.
Use Zoom when you’re watching movies
broadcast in Letterbox format so they fit your
screen.
Auto lets the TV select a suitable aspect ratio
based on the signal it receives. If it can’t detect
an aspect ratio from the signal, it uses the ratio
selected as the Auto Aspect setting in the menu
system. See page 63 for details.

Controlling Other Equipment with the Remote Control
Note
You can use the TV’s remote control to select functions on your other home theater
equipment, such as your DVD player, VCR, or satellite receiver. That way, you can use just
one remote to control your movies or TV programs.
If there are multiple codes
listed for your equipment
manufacturer and the first
one you choose doesn’t
work, try another code.
First you must program your remote control so it knows what kind of equipment you’re using.
You do this by entering a code that corresponds to the equipment and its manufacturer.
Programming the Remote Control
1
Look up the three-digit code for your equipment and manufacturer in the tables
beginning on page 72.
2
Slide the switch on the top of the remote control to the setting for your equipment type.
For example, to enter the DVD player code, slide the switch to the DVD setting.
3
Hold down the Menu button on the remote control until its light comes on (about 2 to
3 seconds).
4
When your remote control
batteries wear out, you’ll
need to program the
remote control again.

Photos
You can use the digital photo card slots and printer built into your TV, and on the external
CD-R/RW drive, to view, print, and save digital photos, as described in these sections:
•
“Viewing Photos on a Digital Photo Card or CD” below
•
“Freezing an Image for Printing” on page 86

Viewing Photos on a Digital Photo Card or CD
You can view photos on your TV screen from a compatible digital photo card or a CD. You
can also enlarge and rotate your photos and view them in a slide show.

Your TV can view photos in
JPEG (Joint Photographic
Experts Group) format on
cards that are DCF (Design
rule for Camera File system)
version 1.0 compliant.
You cannot insert a
Microdrive™ disc in your TV.
Inserting a Photo Card
Make sure your photo card uses the file structure and naming conventions defined in the
DCF standard so the Photo viewer can display your photos. Your photo card must contain
folders and files using the following structure and format:
•
The folder structure must be:
DCIM
root/DCIM/
or
root/DCIM/123abcde
100epson
epsn1001.jpg
epsn1001.jpg
Where root is the root directory with a DCIM folder beneath it. Your photos may be in
the DCIM directory or in a folder beneath it. Any folders beneath the DCIM folder must
be no more than 8 characters long, usually three numbers followed by up to 5 alphabetic
characters, such as 100epson. Most digital cameras automatically format the files this way,
but if you copy photos to the photo card using another device, you may need to set up
this structure yourself.
•
The photo files must be in JPEG format and named:
abcd1234.jpg
Where abcd1234 is a file name 8 characters long, beginning with 4 letters and ending
with 4 numbers higher than 0000, such as in epsn1001.jpg.
Note
The Photo viewer cannot
display, enlarge, or print TIF
images. You see only the
icon on the viewer

can write TIF images to a
CD-R/RW and view them
on your computer,

Before you view photos on a CD, make sure you’ve connected the external CD-R/RW drive
that came with your TV. See page 31 for instructions.
If you create a CD-R/RW of your photos using a computer, make sure that you use the file
structure and naming conventions defined in the DCF standard so the Photo viewer can
display your photos. Your CD-R/RW must contain folders and files using the following
structure and format:
•
Note
Do not write photos to a
CD-R/RW disc that was
previously written to by a
computer. You can view
and print photos from these
discs, but you cannot write
new photos to them using
your TV. This is because your
TV and computer use
different methods for
writing files. When you want
to write photos to a
CD-R/RW, use a new,
blank disc.
The folder structure must be:
pictures
The Photo viewer cannot
display, enlarge, or print TIF

When it is time to replace the lamp, the TV displays a message on the screen.
The Lamp and Power lights on the front of the TV also indicate the status of the lamp.
You can purchase replacement lamp number ELSLP1 from your dealer or EPSON. Call
(800) 873-7766 or visit the EPSON Store at www.epsonstore.com (U.S. sales only). In
Canada, please call (800) 463-7766 for dealer referral

none of them work, you
may need to replace the
lamp. However, contact
EPSON (see page 124) to
see if lamp replacement
would help before
replacing the lamp
unnecessarily.
Turn off the TV when not in
use. Continuous 24-hour-aday use may reduce its
overall life.
The projection lamp is almost burned out. You may also see a
message on the screen.

Problems Viewing Photos from Cards or Discs
Problem
Solution
You insert a card or CD, but you
don’t see your photos in the
Photo viewer screen.
Make sure your card or disc actually contains photos and that
the files aren’t protected from viewing. Also check to see if your
photo card is protected from viewing. Your card should be
formatted for multi-session packet writing and your files
contained in a DCF compatible folder structure. See page 77
and page 80 for details.
Your photos may not be in the correct format. They should be
JPEG (not progressive JPEG) files with resolutions between
120 × 120 to 4600 × 4600 pixels. If your files are in this format and
resolution range, look at them on a computer to see if you can
see them there. If you can’t, they are probably corrupted.
Your photos don’t look right when
you view them in the Photo
viewer.
Make sure your photos are in JPEG (not progressive JPEG) format
and are between 120 × 120 and 4600 × 4600 pixel resolution.
Check the TV’s Color Mode, Brightness, and other tone settings.
Press the Color button on the remote control to cycle though the

there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause interference to radio and television reception, which can be determined
by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference
by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
•
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
•

the FCC Certification of this device and may cause interference levels which exceed the limits
established by the FCC for this equipment. It is the responsibility of the user to obtain and
use a shielded equipment interface cable with this device. If this equipment has more than one
interface connector, do not leave cables connected to unused interfaces. Changes or
modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer could void the user’s authority to
operate the equipment.
