Important Safety Precautions & Instructions
This product is designed and manufactured to operate within defined design limits, and misuse may result in
electric shock or fire. To prevent the product from being damaged, the following rules should be observed for
the installation, use and maintenance of the product. Read the following safety instructions before operating
the display. Keep these instructions in a safe place for future reference.
In order to prevent potential danger, always observe these basic safety precautions and instructions when
installing, operating, and cleaning your KTC. This product has been engineered and manufactured with the
highest priority on safety. However, improper use can result in electric shock and / or fire.
To ensure your safety and prolong the service life of your Liquid Crystal Television, please read the following
precautions carefully before using the product.
WARNING: Do not expose this product to rain or moisture.
Do not remove the cover. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required
when the KTC has been damaged in any way, such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged,
liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the unit, it has been exposed to rain or
moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped.
ƒ The KTC is for indoor use only.
ƒ Unplug the KTC before performing care and
maintenance.
ƒ Do not block the ventilation holes on the back of the
KTC at any time.
ƒ Keep your Multimedia KTC out of direct sunlight and
heat sources.
ƒ Electricity is used to perform many useful functions,
but it can also cause personal injuries and property
damage if improperly handled. To avoid the risk of
electric shock or component damage, power off the
KTC before connecting other components
(PANTV1512).
ƒ Unplug the power cord before cleaning the KTC.
Only use the included custom bezel cleaning cloth for
cleaning the KTC bezel. Do not use a liquid, spray, or
abrasive cleaners for cleaning the product.
ƒ Always use the accessories recommended by the
manufacturer to insure compatibility.
7
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Only use the AC adapter included with the
KTC. Using any other power adapter could
damage the unit and will void your warranty.
When moving the KTC from an area of low
temperature to an area of high temperature,
condensation may form on the housing. Do
not turn on the KTC immediately after the
move to avoid causing fire, electric shock or
component damage.
Do not place the KTC on an unstable cart,
stand, or table. If the KTC falls, it can injure a
person and cause serious damage to the
appliance. Use only a cart or stand
recommended by the manufacturer or sold
with the KTC.
Do not install the product in an area with
heavy dust or high humidity which may cause
fire or electric shock.
ƒ Protect the power cord. Route power cords so that
they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by
items placed on or against them. Pay particular
attention to the plug where the cord attaches to the
KTC, convenience receptacles, and the point where
they exit from the apparatus.
ƒ The KTC should be operated only from the type of
power source indicated on the label. If you are not
sure of the type of power supplied to your home,
consult your dealer or local power company.
ƒ The power cable must be replaced when using
different voltage from that specified in this User
Guide. For more information, contact your dealer.
ƒ The KTC is equipped with a three-pronged grounded
plug, a plug with a third (grounding) pin. This plug will
fit only into a grounded power outlet as a safety
feature. If your outlet does not accommodate the
three-wire plug, have an electrician install the correct
outlet, or use an adapter to ground the appliance
safely. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
grounded plug.
ƒ Do not overload power strips and extension cords.
Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
ƒ The wall outlet should be installed near the
equipment and should be easily accessible.
ƒ Do not touch the power cord during thunderstorms.
To avoid electric shock, avoid handling the power
cord during electrical storms.
ƒ Unplug the unit during a lightning storm to protect the
KTC from damage due to power surges.
ƒ Unplug the power cord from the outlet when the unit
is not in use or when it will not be used for a long
period of time.
ƒ Do not attempt to repair or service the product
yourself. Opening or removing the back cover may
expose you to high voltages, the risk of electric
shock, and other hazards. If repair is required, please
contact your dealer and refer all servicing to qualified
service personnel.
ƒ Never push any object into the ventilation slots of the
KTC. Do not place any objects on the top of the
Product. It could short circuit parts causing a fire or
electric shock. Never spill liquids on the KTC.

If any of the following occurs, please contact the dealer:
o The power connector fails or frays.
o
Liquid sprays or any object drops into the KTC.
o
The Display is exposed to rain or other moisture.
o
The Display is dropped or damaged in any way.
o
The performance of the Display changes substantially.
8
ƒ
Do not use the KTC in a portrait format (by
rotating 90 degrees) under high temperature
environment (25°C or higher), since this
would retard heat dissipation and would
eventually damage the KTC.
Any heat source should maintain a distance
of at least 5 feet away from the KTC, i.e.
radiator, heater, oven, amplifier etc. Do not
install the product too close to anything that
produces smoke or moisture. Operating the
product close to smoke or moisture may
cause fire or electric shock.
Do not use the product if any abnormality
occurs. If any smoke or odor becomes
apparent, unplug the power cord and contact
your dealer immediately. Do not try to repair
the product yourself.
Avoid using dropped or damaged appliances.
If the product is dropped and the housing is
damaged, the internal components may
function abnormally. Unplug the power cord
immediately and contact your dealer for
repair. Continued use of the product may
cause fire or electric shock.
Hold the power connector when removing the
power cable. Pulling the power cable itself
may damage the wires inside the cable and
cause fire or electric shocks.
To avoid risk of electric shock, do not touch
the power cord connector with wet hands.
Insert the remote control batteries in
accordance with instructions. Incorrect
polarities may cause damage and leakage of
the batteries, operator injury and
contamination of the remote control.
Keep the product away from moisture. Do not
expose this appliance to rain or moisture. If
water penetrates into the product, unplug the
power cord and contact your dealer.
Continuous use in this case may result in fire
or electric shock.
Slots and openings in the back and bottom of
the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To
ensure reliable operation of the KTC and to
protect it from overheating, be sure these
openings are not blocked or covered. Do not
place the KTC in a bookcase or cabinet
unless proper ventilation is provided.
Operating environment: Temperature:
5°C ~ 35°C, Humidity: 10% to 90%
non-condensing Altitude: 0~10,000 ft
Cleaning the KTC
1. Unplug the power cable from the electrical wall outlet before cleaning the KTC.
2. Do not use volatile solvent (alcohol, rosin, and toluene) to clean the KTC. These types of chemicals
may damage the housing and the LCD glass.
Cleaning the Screen
Treat the screen gently, it is made of glass and can break easily. To clean fingerprints or dust from
the LCD screen, we recommend using a soft, non-abrasive cloth such as a camera lens cloth to
clean. If you use a commercial LCD Cleaning Kit, do not apply the cleaning liquid directly to the LCD
screen; use a cloth moistened with the liquid.
Cleaning the Bezel and Remote Control
1. Use a 100% cotton cloth or micro-fiber cloth for cleaning.
2. If the remote control or bezel is so dirty that you cannot simply dry wipe it, lightly dampen the
wiping material with clean water and wipe again. Wipe the display with a dry micro-fiber cloth or
100% cotton cloth afterwards.
CAUTION: Wring the water tightly out of the cloth before cleaning the bezel or remote in order to
prevent water from penetrating into the electronics.

INSTALLATION
Please read the installation instructions carefully before performing the installation.
The power consumption of the display is approximately 50 watts. Always use the power cord designated for
the product. When an extension cord is required, use one with the correct power rating. The cord must be
grounded and the grounding feature must not be defeated.
The product should be installed on a flat surface to avoid tipping. Space should be maintained between the
back of the product and the wall for proper ventilation. If you would like to mount the KTC onto the wall or
under a cabinet, refer to page 12 for mounting instructions.
CAUTION: Always install the product with the screen in landscape orientation. Any 90° clockwise or
counterclockwise installation may induce poor ventilation and successive component damage.
Countertop, Under Cabinet, or Wall Mounting
The KTC can be set on a countertop, mounted under a cabinet or on a wall (using separate mounting kit).
10
Attach the Countertop Stand
TIP: Leave the clear protective plastic sheet taped on the front of the LCD until you have
attached the stand or mounted the unit on the wall or under a cabinet.
1. Remove the white packaging cover from the KTC monitor and lay the cover on a flat surface.
2.
Place the KTC monitor face down on the cover, or other type of protective material such as a
cloth, to protect the bezel from scratching.
3.
Position the bottom edge of the monitor facing you along the edge of the flat surface so the stand
can hang over the edge when connected.
Tabs 4. Tilt the stand slightly to insert the two tabs on the stand assembly into the slots on the top of the
stand, and then lower the stand so it lays flat against the stand assembly (as shown above).
5. Use a Phillips head screw driver to insert the three small screws from the bottom of the stand and
hand tighten.
6. Turn the KTC upright and remove the protective plastic sheet from the front of the monitor.
11
Wall or Under Cabinet Mounting
If you have not already attached the stand, ignore the following instructions and refer to the separate
‘Flat Panel TV Mounting’s Installation and Assembly’ instructions for using the Wall Mount Kit.
If you have previously attached the stand, you must remove it before mounting the KTC on the wall or
under a cabinet.
1. Place the KTC monitor face down on a cloth to protect the bezel from scratches.
2. Position the bottom edge of the monitor along the edge of the flat surface so the stand hangs
over the edge for easy detachment.
3. Use a Phillips head screw driver to remove the 3 screws from the bottom of the stand and
then remove the stand.
4. Refer to the separate ‘Flat Panel TV Mounting’s Installation and Assembly’ instructions
for using the Wall Mount Kit to mount on wall or under cabinet.
Adjust the Monitor Angle
You can adjust the angle of the monitor by gently moving top of monitor back or forward until the desired
viewing angle is achieved. If the KTC is on the countertop, press down on the stand to secure before
moving the monitor.
Change the Decorative Faceplates
The KTC includes three decorative faceplates that are easily changed to match your room’s decor.
1. Remove the current faceplate on the KTC by carefully pulling it off from one of the corners.
2. Peel the paper off the replacement faceplate and carefully position the faceplate on the front of
the KTC, sticky side on the unit.
3. When in correct position, press the faceplate in place and gently rub the surface to adhere well.
4. Carefully remove the protective film from the faceplate to expose the glossy surface.

cables. From right to left, connect green, blue, and red for video, and then connect white for left
channel audio, and red for right channel audio.
2. TV – Connection for digital or analog cable without the cable box or over-the-airwave antennas. The
tuner is a hybrid tuner that tunes to both analog and digital channels. This connection uses coaxial
RF cable. For over-the airwave digital stations check the following website:
http://www.antennaweb.org.
3. SV and AV – Connect devices that use composite video cables such as VCR or camcorder or video
game consoles. The S-Video connector is associated with AV’s video. Connect the video portion with

4. VGA – Connects to a PC for video using VGA cable. Connect your audio cable to the VGA Stereo
input if you want sound out of the VGA video source.
5. Audio (VGA STEREO INPUT) – Connect a 3.5mm mini-jack audio cable if you want to provide audio
to the TV when using a PC.
6. HDMI – Connect to devices that use HDMI cables, such as Blu-ray or HD DVD player, or HD cable /
satellite set-top box. This connection port receives pure digital audio and high definition signal
through one single cable. This port also can accept a HDCP video device for video.
7. 12V DC – Power connector for providing electricity to the KTC. Connects to the AC power adapter
which connects to the AC power source (wall outlet). (It is very important to use only the AC adapter
included with the KTC.)
Note: When in TV mode, if left idle on a channel connection with very weak or no signal for 5 minutes,
the KTC will automatically switch from TV mode to DPF mode and begin playing a photo
slideshow. This feature is present on all channel connections.
13
Connecting Speakers to the KTC
The KTC has built-in speakers, however, (depending on the model) your KTC may also include an
audio-out jack that you can use to connect external speakers, an external amplifier, or headphones

remote control sensor is also located in the KTC’s power button. When using the remote control, point directly
towards the sensor for best response.
WARNING: The first time you power the KTC on, you may receive the following
messages:
‘Proceed with Auto Scan’ or ‘No Signal’
Because the KTC defaults to the TV mode when shipped from the factory, if you are not
connected to digital cable, the first time you power the KTC on, the unit may display
‘Proceed with Auto Scan’, ‘No Signal’, and/or ‘No Database’ messages. Press SOURCE
on the remote control or side panel buttons, use the arrows to highlight DPF, and then press
ENTER. The KTC will now be in the Digital Photo Frame (DPF) mode, and will remain in the
DPF mode until you change the SOURCE at a later time.
‘No Database’
If you are connected to digital cable, and the message ‘No Database’ appears, the
KTC may not be receiving a strong enough signal for the current channel to be displayed.
Follow the Initial Tuner Setup instructions on page 22 to perform the necessary auto
channel scan.
To use your KTC as a television, proceed to the TELEVISION SECTION on page 18.
To use the Digital Photo Frame (DPF) features on your KTC, proceed to the DPF SECTION

29
Aspect Ratio
The KTC has a widescreen display, but most TV programs are still broadcasting in a square format.
Therefore, the KTC offers two display options for viewing videos.
There are two main types of signal formats, 16:9 (KTC’s 16:9 is titled normal) and 4:3. Use the Aspect
option (in the KTC OSD SETUP menu) to choose between both modes and other available modes.
1. Normal (16:9)
This mode will stretch the picture to a widescreen ratio. If you have a perfect 16:9 ratio picture
you will not see any black bars. If you are watching a widescreen movie in 1.85:1 or 2.35:1 ratio,
you will still get black bars on the top and bottom of the screen.
2. 4:3
Most analog TV channels have 4:3 signal formats. If the original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source)
is preserved, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image. This aspect keeps
that aspect ratio and shows you the black bars on the side.
3. Zoom
When watching a 4:3 aspect ratio TV or movie, this mode zooms in to cut off most of the black
bars on the side while preserving the 16:9 ratio. Because of the zoom, the top and bottom will be
cut off as well.
4. Cinema
Even with this widescreen TV, when watching a movie you will still get some black bars on the
top and bottom. This aspect ratio will zoom in to cut off most of the black bars on the top and
bottom. Because of the zoom, the left and right will be cut off as well.
30
Program Ratings
To block channels you don’t want your children to watch, you can filter them with the ratings functions under
the OSD LOCK option. MPAA allows you to control ratings for movies. For regular TV programs you can use
USTV settings, which allow you to filter what content you want at each age level, TV-Y, to TV-MA. Below are
descriptions for each setting.
USTV Ratings
TV-Y (USTV) – For All Children
For programs designed to be appropriate for all children. Whether animated or live-action, the themes
and elements in this program are specifically designed for a very young audience, including children
from ages 2-6. This program is not expected to frighten younger children.
TV-Y7 (USTV) – Directed to Older Children
For programs designed for children age 7 and above. It may be more appropriate for children who
have acquired the developmental skills needed to distinguish between make-believe and reality.
Themes and elements in this program may include mild fantasy violence or comedic violence, or may
frighten children under the age of 7. Therefore, parents may want to consider the suitability of this
program for their very young children. Note: For those programs where fantasy violence may be more
intense or more combative than other programs in this category, such programs will be designated
TV-Y7-FV.
TV-G (USTV) – General Audience
Most parents would find these programs suitable for all ages. Although this rating does not signify a
program designed specifically for children, most parents may let younger children watch this program
unattended. It contains little or no violence, no strong language and little or no sexual dialogue or
situations.
TV-PG (USTV) – Parental Guidance Suggested
For programs that contain material that parents may find unsuitable for younger children. Many
parents may want to watch it with their younger children. The theme itself may call for parental
guidance and/or the program contains one or more of the following: moderate violence (V), some
sexual situations (S), infrequent coarse language (L), or some suggestive dialogue (D).
TV-14 (USTV) – Parents Strongly Cautioned
For programs that contain some material that many parents would find unsuitable for children less
than 14 years of age. Parents are strongly urged to exercise greater care in monitoring this program
and are cautioned against letting children under the age of 14 watches unattended. This program
contains one or more of the following: intense violence (V), intense sexual situations (S), strong
coarse language (L), or intensely suggestive dialogue (D).
TV-MA (USTV) – Mature Audience Only
For programs specifically designed to be viewed by adults and therefore may be unsuitable for
children under 17. This program contains one or more of the following: graphic violence (V), explicit
sexual activity (S), or crude indecent language (L).

Browsing Channels
Press CH+ and CH- to scroll through the channels; the only channels that will be displayed are those on the
scanned list that was created during the Initial Turner Setup procedure.
Browsing through the entire channel list can be tedious, so the KTC has two ‘shortcut’ methods for avoiding
the need to scroll through all the channels to find the ones you want to watch: Favorites List and Channel
Skip.
Note: The available channel choices for both the Favorites List and Channel Skip options are those on
the scanned list; therefore these functions are only available after you perform an Auto Scan.
Favorites List

TRASH PIXELS ON THE
SCREEN
When your KTC’s resolution is higher than the digital channel’s broadcast resolution, the
signal is up-converted to match your TV’s resolution. Up-converting can cause this type of
effect.
TIPS FOR HIGH
DEFINITION USERS
The KTC is an ideal platform for viewing High Definition Content. The best image quality can
be achieved by HDMI, YPbPr (Component), then VGA. However, due to variances in
broadcast practices, it is possible some image distortions can occur.
TIPS FOR LETTERBOX
CONTENT USERS
Letterboxed (Widescreen) versions of DVD movies are most commonly formatted for
standard 4:3 TVs. The KTC has the capability of expanding this content so the entire screen
is filled at the expense of the image proportion. To use this function press the aspect button
on the remote control and cycle among the available options.
I CANNOT FIND THE
