To reduce the risk of electric shock or component damage, switch off the power before
connecting other components to your HDTV.
Unplug the power cord before cleaning your HDTV. A damp cloth is sufficient for cleaning your
HDTV. Do not use a liquid or a spray cleaner for cleaning your HDTV. Do not use abrasive
cleaners.
Always use the accessories recommended by the manufacturer to insure compatibility.
When moving your HDTV from an area of low temperature to an area of high temperature,
condensation may form in the housing. Wait before turning on your HDTV to avoid causing fire,
electric shock, or component damage.
Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified by manufacturer or sold with your
HDTV. When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/HDTV combination to avoid injury
from tip-over. Do not place your HDTV on an unstable cart, stand, or table. If your HDTV falls, it
can injure a person and cause serious damage to your HDTV. Use only a cart or stand
recommended by the manufacturer or sold with your HDTV.
A distance of at least 3 feet should be maintained between your HDTV and any heat source, such
as a radiator, heater, oven, amplifier etc. Do not install your HDTV close to smoke. Operating
your HDTV close to smoke or moisture may cause fire or electric shock.
Slots and openings in the back and bottom of the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To ensure
reliable operation of your HDTV and to protect it from overheating, be sure these openings are
not blocked or covered. Do not place your HDTV in a bookcase or cabinet unless proper
ventilation is provided.
Never push any object into the slots and openings on your HDTV cabinet. Do not place any
objects on the top of your HDTV. Doing so could short circuit parts causing a fire or electric shock.
Never spill liquids on your HDTV.
Your HDTV 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.
Do not apply pressure or throw objects at your HDTV. This may compromise the integrity of the
display. The manufacturer’s warranty does not cover user abuse or improper installations.
The power cord must be replaced when using different voltage than the voltage specified. For
more information, contact your dealer.
Your HDTV 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. This is a safety feature. If your outlet
does not accommodate the three-pronged, have an electrician install the
correct outlet, or use an adapter to ground your HDTV safely. Do not
defeat the safety purpose of the grounded plug.
When connected to a power outlet, power is always flowing into your
HDTV. To totally disconnect power, unplug the power cord.

Television Antenna Connection Protection
External Television Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna/satellite dish or cable system is to be connected to the TV, make sure that the
antenna or cable system is electrically grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges and
static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPSA 70, provides information with regard to proper
grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge
unit, size of the grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements of the
grounding electrode.
Lightning Protection
For added protection of the TV during a
lightning storm or when it is left unattended
or unused for long periods of time, unplug the
TV from the wall outlet and disconnect the
antenna or cable system.
Power Lines
Do not locate the antenna near overhead light or power circuits, or where it could fall into such power
lines or circuits.
Remember, the screen of the coaxial cable is intended to be connected to earth in the building
installation.
FCC Bulletin for New TV Owners
The nationwide switch to digital television broadcasting will be complete on June 12, 2009, but your local
television stations may switch sooner. After the switch, analog-only television sets that receive TV
programming through an antenna will need a converter box to continue to receive over-the-air TV. Watch
your local stations to find out when they will turn off their analog signal and switch to digitalonly broadcasting. Analog-only TVs should continue to work as before to receive low power,
Class A or translator television stations and with cable and satellite TV services, gaming consoles,
VCRs, DVD players, and similar products.

Description
HDMI delivers the best image quality of any of the cable types available
and it’s all done over one cable. You get a great picture and cut down on
your cable clutter. HDMI provides digital quality and amazing sound so if
your TV has HDMI, this is the connection type you should be using.

RF connects your TV antenna or cable service (no set-top box) by using a
coaxial cable, this cable usually connects your TV directly from the wall to
this input. When digital content is being received, this input delivers the
best image quality.

The RGB (VGA) port allows you to connect your computer so you can
use the TV as your monitor.

(analog)
Component consists of three cables for transmitting video and two
cables for transmitting audio: one red and one white. Component video
provides a sharper image than Composite video and should be used
instead of composite when possible. However, because it is still an
analog connection, it won’t provide the superior quality video and audio
that HDMI can produce.
Compatible
(analog)
Composite consists of one yellow cable for transmitting video and two
cables for transmitting audio: one red and one white. It is capable of
transmitting stereo sound and standard definition video (480i). While it
provides a good image, it has lower image quality than HDMI or
Component. So try to use one of those connections first.
Note: To maintain the display quality, use a VIZIO certified HDMI cable. This cable is available in 6, 8,
and 12 foot lengths. Visit www.vizio.com or call 1-888-VIZIOCE (1-888-849-4623) for details.

The following paragraphs describe in detail the differences of the Aspect Ratio being processed by the
TV:
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.
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 (1.78:1
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 of the screen.
Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 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
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.
Stretch Mode
When watching a widescreen program (1.78:1 source) with black
bars on the sides, the display image will stretch to fill the TV
screen. People will appear wider than they really are. If you are
watching a widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or

Chapter 9 Maintenance and Troubleshooting
Cleaning the TV and Remote Control
1. Remove the power adapter cable from the TV.
2. Use a soft cloth moistened with diluted neutral cleaner to clean the TV and remote control. VIZIO
recommends using an HDTV cleaning solution which can be purchased at any major retailer.
3. Wring liquid out of the cloth before cleaning to prevent water from penetrating into the housing.
4. Wipe the TV and remote control with a dry cloth after cleaning.
Important:
•
Do not use volatile solvent (such as toluene, rosin and alcohol). Such chemicals may damage the
housing, screen glass, and remote control, and cause labeling to peel.
•
The screen glass is very fragile. Do not scrape it with any sharp object.
•
Do not press or tap the screen to avoid cracking.
Troubleshooting Guide
If the TV fails or the performance changes dramatically, check the display in accordance with the
following instructions. Remember to check the peripherals to pinpoint the source of the failure. If the
display still fails to perform as expected, contact the VIZIO for assistance by calling 1-877-MYVIZIO (6984946) or e-mail us at techsupport@VIZIO.com.

Tips for High-Definition Users.
•
Your HDTV is an ideal platform for viewing High Definition Content.
•
Best image quality will be achieved by HDMI. The next best is Component,
followed by Composite.
•
Due to variances in broadcast practices, it is possible some image distortions
can occur.
•
Some Letterboxed (or “Widescreen”) versions of DVD movies are formatted for
standard 4:3 Televisions. Your HDTV has the ability to expand this content so
the entire screen is filled at the expense of image accuracy.
