As you enjoy your new product, keep these
safety tips in mind
The issue
The home theater entertainment experience is a growing trend, and larger TVs are popular
purchases. However, TVs are not always supported on the proper stands or installed
according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. We and the consumer electronics
industry are committed to making home entertainment enjoyable and safe.
TVs that are inappropriately placed on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks, speakers, chests, or
carts may fall over and cause injury.
Tune into safety
•
•
•
•
•
•
One size of TV stand does not fit all. Use only a TV stand
rated for the weight of your TV.
Carefully read and understand all enclosed instructions
for proper use of this product.
Don’t let children climb on or play with entertainment
system furniture and TVs.
Don’t place TVs on furniture that can easily be used as
steps, such as a crate or chest of drawers.
Remember that children can become excited while
watching a program, especially on a “larger-than-life” TV.
Make sure that you place or install the TV where it cannot
be pushed, pulled over, or knocked down.
Make sure that you route all cords and cables so that they
cannot be pulled or grabbed by curious children.
Wall mounting
If you decide to wall mount your TV, always remember:
•
One size of wall mount does not fit all. Use only a wall mount rated for the weight of
your TV and that has been recommended by this TV manufacturer, listed in this
manual, or otherwise listed by an independent laboratory as suitable for your TV.
•
Follow all instructions supplied by the TV and wall mount manufacturers.
•
If you have any doubts about your ability to safely wall mount your TV, get help from a
professional installer.
•
Make sure that the wall where you are mounting the TV is
appropriate. Some wall mounts are not designed to be
mounted to walls backed with steel studs or cinder blocks. If
you are unsure, ask a professional installer.
•
TVs can be heavy. At least two people are required for safe wall mount installation.

Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized
plug has two blades with one wider than the
other. A grounding type plug has two blades
and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or
the third prong are provided for your safety. If
the provided plug does not fit into your outlet,
consult an electrician for replacement of the
obsolete outlet.
Protect the power cord from being walked on or
pinched particularly at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from
the apparatus.
Only use attachments/accessories specified by
the manufacturer.
Use only with the cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, or table specified
by the manufacturer, or sold with
the apparatus. When a cart is
used, use caution when moving
the cart/apparatus combination
to avoid injury from tip-over.
Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms
or when unused for long periods of time.
14 Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Servicing is required when the apparatus 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
apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to
rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or
has been dropped.
15 The wall plug is the disconnecting device. The
plug must remain readily operable.
16 Remote control batteries should not be exposed
to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire, or the
like.
17 The apparatus should not be exposed to
dripping or splashing, and no objects filled with
liquids, such as vases, should be placed on the
apparatus.
WARNING
Electric shock hazard
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not
remove any cover or expose the device to rain or
moisture. No user-serviceable parts are inside. Refer
servicing to qualified service technicians.
Lightning
For added protection for your device receiver
during a lightning storm, or when it is left
unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the power outlet and disconnect any
antenna or cable system. This helps prevent
property damage and personal injury from
lightning and power line surges.
Power lines
An outside antenna system should not be located in
the vicinity of overhead power lines or other
electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall
into such power lines or circuits. When installing an
outside antenna system, take extreme care to keep
from touching such power lines or circuits as
contact with them might be fatal.
Handling the LCD panel
• Your TV’s screen is made of glass. Do not drop
your TV or hit, jolt, or press hard against the LCD
panel. If the screen breaks, be careful of broken
glass.
• If the LCD panel is broken, make absolutely sure
that you do not touch the liquid in the panel. This
may cause skin inflammation.
• If the liquid gets in your mouth, immediately
gargle, rinse, and consult with your doctor. Also, if
the liquid gets in your eyes or touches your skin,
consult with your doctor after rinsing for at least
15 minutes or longer in clean water.
Replacement parts
When replacement parts are required, make sure
that the service technician uses replacement parts
specified by the manufacturer that have the same
characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized
substitutions may result in fire, electric shock,
personal injury, or other hazards.

of the type of power supplied to your home, consult
an electrician or your local power company.
Servicing
These servicing instructions are for use by qualified
service personnel only. To reduce the risk of electric
shock, do not perform any servicing other than that
contained in the operating instructions unless you
are qualified to do so.
CAUTION
Damage requiring service
Unplug this TV from the power outlet and refer
servicing to qualified service personnel under the
following conditions:
• When the power supply cord or plug is damaged
or frayed.
• If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen
into your TV.
• If your TV has been exposed to rain or water.
• If your TV does not operate normally by following
the operating instructions. Adjust only those
controls covered by the operating instructions
because incorrect adjustment of other controls
may result in damage and will often require
extensive work by a qualified technician to restore
your TV to its normal operation.
• If your TV has been dropped or damaged in any
way.
• When your TV exhibits a distinct change in
performance.
Outdoor antenna grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected
to your TV, make sure that the antenna or cable
system is grounded to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA No. 70, provides information with
respect to correct grounding of the mast and
supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire
to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of the antenna-discharge unit,
connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode.

Note to CATV system installer
Article 820 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA No. 40 provides guidance for correct
grounding. Specifically, it states that the cable
ground must be connected to the grounding
system of the building as close to the point of cable
entry as practical.
Condensation
Moisture will form on the TV if the TV is brought
from cool surroundings into a warm room or if the
temperature of the room rises suddenly. When this
happens, the TV's performance may be impaired. To
prevent this, let the TV stand in its new
surroundings for about an hour before switching it
on, or make sure that the room temperature rises
gradually.
Condensation may also form during the summer if
the TV is exposed to the breeze from an air
conditioner. In such cases, change the location of
the TV.
Mobile telephone warning
To avoid interference with your TV picture and
sound, operating problems, or even damage, keep
your cordless and cellular telephones away from
the TV.
End of life directives
Your TV may contain materials that are regulated
for environmental reasons. Your TV also contains
materials that can be recycled and reused. To help
protect the environment, contact your local
authorities for information about disposal or
recycling and about finding a recycler in your area
before you dispose of your TV.
Non-active pixels
The LCD panel contains almost 3 million thin film
transistors, which provide exceptionally sharp video
quality. Occasionally, a few non-active pixels may
appear on the screen as a fixed blue, green, or red
point. These non-active pixels do not adversely
affect the performance of your TV, and are not
considered defects.

• Do not bundle the coaxial cable with the power cord or other cables.
• If the antenna is not installed correctly, contact qualified service
personnel to correct the problem.
• If the signal level for a channel is weak, the picture may be distorted.
Adjust the antenna or use a highly directional outdoor or set-top
antenna with a built-in amplifier.
• If the picture quality is good on some channels and poor on others, the
problem may be caused by a poor or weak signal from the broadcaster
or cable TV provider.
• If you connect to cable or satellite TV without a set-top box and
experience poor picture quality, you may need to install a set-top box to
improve signal reception and picture quality. Contact your cable or
satellite TV provider about upgrading to a set-top box.
• Many high-definition (HD) channels upscale standard-definition (SD)
content. The picture displayed on your TV is still displayed as SD, thus
the picture quality will not be as clear or crisp as it would be if the
