yyOutdoor Antenna Grounding
(Can differ by country):
If an outdoor antenna is installed, follow the
precautions below. An outdoor antenna system
should not be located in the vicinity of overhead
power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or
where it can come in contact with such power lines
or circuits as death or serious injury can occur. Be sure
the antenna system is grounded to provide some
protection against voltage surges and built-up static
charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code
(NEC) in the U.S.A. provides information with respect
to 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
electrodes, and requirements for the grounding

When cleaning, unplug the power cord and wipe
gently with a soft cloth to prevent scratching. Do
not spray water or other liquids directly on the TV as
electric shock may occur. Do not clean with chemicals
such as alcohol, thinners, or benzine.
Make sure the product is turned off, unplugged, and
all cables have been removed. It may take 2 or more
people to carry larger TVs. Do not press or put stress
on the front panel of the TV.
Install your TV where there is proper ventilation. Do
not install in a confined space such as a bookcase. Do
not cover the product with cloth or other materials
while plugged in. Do not install in excessively dusty

install the TV by hanging the power and signal cables
on the back of the TV.

yyDISCONNECTING THE DEVICE FROM THE MAIN
The power plug is the disconnecting device. In case
of an emergency, the power plug must remain readily
Store the accessories (battery, etc.) in a safe location
out of the reach of children.
yyThis apparatus uses batteries. In your community
there might be regulations that require you to dispose
of these batteries properly due to environmental
considerations. Please contact your local authorities
for disposal or recycling information.
yyDo not dispose of batteries in a fire.
yyDo not short circuit, disassemble, or allow the
batteries to overheat.
yyDo not use high voltage electrical equipment near
the TV, (e.g., a bug zapper). This may result in product
The panel is a high technology product with
resolution of two million to six million pixels. In a very
few cases, you could see fine dots on the screen while
you’re viewing the TV. Those dots are deactivated
pixels and do not affect the performance and
reliability of the TV.
Cracking noise A cracking noise that occurs when
watching or turning off the TV is generated by
plastic thermal contraction due to temperature and
humidity. This noise is common for products where
thermal deformation is required.
Electrical circuit humming/panel buzzing
A low level noise is generated from a high-speed
switching circuit, which supplies a large amount of
current to operate a product. It varies depending
upon the product. This generated sound does not
affect the performance and reliability of the product.
yyTake care not to touch the ventilation openings. When
watching the TV for a long period, the ventilation
openings may become hot. This does not affect the
performance of the product or cause defects in the
yyDo not install this product on a wall if it could be
exposed to oil or oil mist. This may damage the
product and cause it to fall.
yyIf the TV feels cold to the touch, there may be a small
flicker when it is turned on. This is normal; there is
nothing wrong with TV. Some minute dot defects
may be visible on the screen, appearing as tiny red,
green, or blue spots. However, they have no adverse
effect on the TV’s performance. Avoid touching the
LCD screen or holding your finger(s) against it for
long periods of time. Doing so may produce some
temporary distortion effects on the screen.
Preventing image burn or burn-in
on your TV screen
yyIf a fixed image displays on the TV screen for a long
period of time, it will be imprinted and become a
permanent disfigurement on the screen. This is image
burn or burn-in and not covered by the warranty.
