1.3 - Opening the Package
•
•
•
•
•
The VIZIO P50 HDM is packaged in a carton together with other standard accessories. Any
optional accessories are packed separately in another carton.
The weight of the Plasma monitor is approximately 122 lbs. Due to the size and weight of the
product, it is recommended that it be handled by a minimum of 2 persons, preferably 3
people.
The glass installed on the front of the product can be easily scratched or broken, please
handle the product gently. Never place the unit on a surface with the glass facing downwards
unless it is on protective padding.
When opening the carton, check that the product is in good condition and that all standard
accessories and items are included.
Save the original box and all packing materials for future shipping needs.
1.4 - Installation
•
•
•
•
•
•
Please read the user manual carefully before performing the installation.
The power consumption of the display is approximately 550W Max (490W average),
significantly higher than a typical television. Please 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. See Section
3.4 - Preparing the Plasma for Wall Mounting, page 23, for additional information.
Avoid installing the product in the kitchen, bathroom or other places with high humidity dust or
smoke, so as not to shorten the service life of the electronic components.
Please ensure the product is installed with the screen in landscape orientation. Any 90°
clockwise or counterclockwise installation may induce poor ventilation and subsequent
component damage.
To protect the screen and avoid screen burn, do not keep a static picture displayed for a
prolonged period of time. This can result in "image sticking" (see below for additional details)
of the image and is not covered by the warranty.
1.4.1 - Image Sticking
The Plasma monitor illuminates phosphors to display images which have a finite illumination
life. After extended periods of illumination, the brightness of the phosphor will be degraded to
such an extent that stationary images would burn-in that part of the screen. Displaying the
same stationary patterns such as black bars, stock tickers, video games or shopping channel
logos and pricing displays, over extended periods of time can leave this type of permanent
image sticking. You can avoid this by mixing your viewing patterns. Do not show the same
stationary image for more than 15% of the total monitor viewing in any one week.
With the VIZIO VIC (VIZIO Image Cleaner) feature you are able to remove ghosts of previous
images. Note that the usual plasma panel precautions of avoiding prolonged display of
stationary images must be maintained. This will not remove images that have been displayed
for too long.
For additional information, please refer to Section 3.5.2.5 – Setup, page 28 for using the
panel protection feature.
NOTE: "Image Sticking" constitutes misuse and is NOT COVERED by the manufacturer's
warranty.

Electrical Warnings
Do not place this product in a location that is subject to heavy vibration, or on an unstable surface such as an inclined surface. The
product may fall off or fall over, causing injuries.
When moving the product, be sure to turn off the power and leave 5 seconds then disconnect all the cables. While moving the product,
watch your step. The product may be dropped or fall, leading to injuries of electric shock.
This product should be moved by two or more persons. If one person attempts to carry this product alone, he/she may be injured.
This product contains glass. The glass may break, causing injuries, if shock, vibration, heat, or distortion is applied to the product.
This product may be damaged if it is subject to excessive stresses (such as excessive voltage, current, or temperature). The absolute
maximum ratings specify the limits of these stresses.
Do not switch AC power on/off in the short time, be sure to turn off the power and leave 5 seconds then AC power on.
If this product is used as a display board to display a static image, “image sticking” occurs. This means that the luminance of areas of
the display that remain lit for a long time drops compared with the luminance of areas that are lit for a shorter time, causing uneven
luminance across the display. The degree to which this occurs is in proportion to the luminance at which the display is used. To prevent
this phenomenon, therefore, avoid static images as much as possible and design your system so that it is used at a low luminance, by
reducing signal level difference between bright area and less bright area through signal processing.
Within the warranty period, general faults that occur due to defects in components such as ICs will be rectified by LGE without charge.
However, IMAGE STICKING is not included in the warranty. Repairs due to the other faults may be charged for depending on
responsibility for the faults.
In case of AC PDP driving mechanism, because the brightness of output is not always proportional to input signals. Therefore the nonlinearity of gray can occasionally be observed in certain gray levels as well as Contour and Error Diffusion Noise can be appeared when
a dark picture is on the screen especially. These are phenomena that can be observed on the PDP driving mechanism. With simple
adjustment to picture brightness control, these can be reduced considerably.
Because of the need to control the power consumption on the PDP driving mechanism, the APL (Average Picture Level) mode was
equipped. Thus, as the picture on the screen changes, there can be slightly switched in brightness. This also is a phenomenon that can
be observed on the PDP driving mechanism.
HDMI™ Warnings
If you hot-plug the HDMI™ cable, the signal will be unstable for about 2 to 5 seconds.
Only supports timing 640x480 @60Hz DVI

Chapter 2 - Connecting Components
2.1 - Which Video Connection Should I Use?
The VIZIO P50 HDM Plasma Monitor has four different ways to connect your video equipment
from a basic one to the most advanced for digital displays.
Connection Quality
Connector
Color Codes for Description
Rear Panel
Basic
Yellow and
Orange
AV1/AV2 (Composite) - The complete video
signal is carried through this single pin
connector. This is the most commonly used
video connection.
Good
Red
S-Video - The video signal is separated into
two signals, one containing the black-andwhite information and the other containing
the color information. Separating the color in
this way avoids ‘cross color’ effects where
closely spaced black and white lines are
erroneously displayed in color. It also
enables text to be displayed more sharply.
Better
Best
Version - 5/24/2005
Green and Blue Analog HD1/HD2 (Component) - The video
signal is separated into three signals, one
containing the black-and-white information
and the other two containing the color
information. This enhancement over S-Video
takes advantage of the superior picture
provided by progressive scan DVD players
and HDTV formats.

Digital HD1/HD2 (HDMI™ - High-Definition
Multimedia Interface) - It is the first and only
industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital
audio/video interface. HDMI™ provides an
interface between any audio/video source,
such as a set-top box, DVD player, or AV
receiver and an audio and/or video monitor,
such as a digital television (DTV), over a
single cable.

3.6 - Understanding Viewing Features
Your plasma monitor features four viewing modes and Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode. You can
switch viewing modes using the on-screen display (OSD) or the remote control. For more
information on using the OSD, see 3.5.2 - OSD Menus and Options, page 25.
3.6.1 - Viewing Modes
Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars
are added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV
broadcasts are displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect
Ratio may be referred to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies
were originally filmed in 16:9 (widescreen), and then modified to fit a
traditional TV screen (4:3). Warning: Continuous viewing of Standard
Definition (4:3) in this mode will result in the appearance of left side and
right side vertical bands caused by Image Sticking.
Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this
mode, the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the
TV screen. When watching a widescreen (1.76:1 source)
program or movie, the display image fills the TV screen. If you
are watching a widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or
movie, there will still be black bars at the top and bottom.
Zoom Mode
Note: this option is not available for Analog HD (except 480i or
480P) or RGB Input.
When watching a widescreen (1.76:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to
fill the width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to
remove most of the source material’s black bars. This mode is
good for programs or movies with sub-titles.
Panoramic Mode
Note: this option is not available for Digital HD, Analog HD
(except 480i or 480P) or RGB Input.
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this
mode, the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is
stretched horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV
screen. The center of the image is not stretched.
Note: Viewing modes and volume settings are saved based on input. For example, you last
watched a DVD in widescreen mode and at high volume, and then watched TV in standard
mode and low volume. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode will return to
widescreen and your volume will be high.

The PiP input is set to DVD but the
picture does not look correct.
Tips for High-Definition Users
Tips for Letterbox Content Users
The PiP DVD source must be 480i (interlaced) and not 480p
(progressive scan). Set your DVD player to interlaced or choose a
different PiP source.
The plasma monitor is an ideal platform for viewing High Definition
Content.
Best Image Quality will be achieved by the HDMI™ Input, then
YPbPr, then RGB.
However, due to variances in broadcast practices, it is possible
some image distortions can occur.
Letterboxed (or “Widescreen”) versions of DVD movies are most
commonly formatted for standard 4:3 Televisions. The plasma
monitor has the capability of expanding this content so the entire
screen is filled at the expense of image accuracy. To use this
function, press the “ZOOM” key on the remote control and cycle
among the available options.

Appendix C: Glossary - Standard Definitions
Analog TV: Today’s TV system using radio frequency waves to transmit and display pictures and sound.
Digital TV (DTV): Television delivered and displayed using radio frequency waves that contain information
that is digitally encoded for improved quality and efficiency.
Standard Definition TV (SDTV): Basic digital television transmission that may be displayed with fewer than
480 progressively scanned lines (480p) in 16 x 9 or 4 x 3 format. 480 interlaced
(480i) is the quality of today’s analog TV system. SDTV provides 150-300,000 pixels.
Enhanced Definition TV (EDTV): A better digital television transmission than SDTV with at least 480p, in a
16 x 9 or 4 x 3 display and Dolby digital surround sound. 480p is the quality used by most DVD players.
EDTV provides 300-400,000 pixels.
High-Definition Television (HDTV): The best quality digital picture, widescreen (16 x 9) display with at least
720 progressively scanned lines (720p) or 1080 interlaced lines (1080i) and Dolby digital surround sound.
HDTV provides 900,000-2.1 million pixels.
HDTV Monitor (sometimes called HDTV Ready): A set that can display HDTV programming if you have a
separate HDTV tuner, HD Cable Set-Top Box or HD Satellite Set-Top-Box Receiver.
HDTV Tuner (also decoder, receiver, set-top box): A device capable of receiving and outputting HDTV
signals for display. It may be stand-alone or integrated in the set.
Integrated HDTV: An HDTV that has the digital tuner built into the set. It does not need a separate set-top
box to receive over-the-air DTV signals.
Plug-and-Play or Digital Cable Ready: A DTV or other device for digital cable customers that plugs directly
into the cable jack and does not require a separate set-top box. Plug and Play TV owners must obtain a
CableCARD from their cable company in order to view scrambled programming services.
Interlace Scan: A way to scan vertical lines onto a TV picture by scanning all the odd lines first, then filling in
the even lines (this happens instantaneously).
Progressive Scan: A way to scan vertical lines onto a TV picture by scanning all the lines consecutively
(progressively).
Aspect ratio (4 X 3): Traditional TV “aspect ratio,” that is, the screen’s width as compared to its height. For
example, a “32 inch TV screen” would be 25 ½ inches wide and 19 inches tall.
Aspect ratio (16 X 9): “Widescreen” TV” aspect ratio” that is more like a movie screen than a traditional TV.
For example, a “32 inch TV screen” would be 28 inches wide and 16 inches tall.

Note: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and
the Consumer Electronics Retailers Coalition (CERC) have made a new tip sheet available for digital
television (DTV) retailers to reproduce and distribute to consumers on the sales floor. The file may be
downloaded online at www.dtv.gov. While you’re there, check out the other useful information the FCC is
making available to consumers interested in learning more about the analog to digital transition.
