To guard against injury, the following basic safety
precautions should be observed in the installation, use
and servicing of the set.
This set should be operated only from

the serial/model plate. If you are not sure
of the type of electrical power supplied
to your home, consult your dealer or
local power company. For those sets designed to operate
from battery power, refer to the operating instructions.
Grounding or Polarization
This set is equipped with a polarized AC power cord plug
(a plug having one blade wider than the other), or with a
three-wire grounding type plug (a plug having a third pin
for grounding). Follow the instructions below:
For the set with a polarized AC power cord
This plug will fit into the power outlet
only one way. This is a safety feature. If
you are unable to insert the plug fully
into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If
the plug still fails to fit, contact your electrician to have a
suitable outlet installed. Do not defeat the safety purpose
of the polarized plug by forcing it in.
Alternate Warning for the set with a three-

This plug will only fit into a grounding-
type power outlet. This is a safety
feature. If you are unable to insert the
plug into the outlet, contact your
electrician to have a suitable outlet

wall outlet as a precaution against the
possibility of an internal malfunction that could create a
If a snapping or popping sound from a TV
set is continuous or frequent while the TV
is operating, unplug the TV and consult
your dealer or service technician. It is
normal for some TV sets to make
occasional snapping or popping sounds,
particularly when being turned on or off.
Object and Liquid Entry
Never push objects of any kind into the
set through the cabinet slots as they may
touch dangerous voltage points or short
out parts that could result in a fire or
electric shock. Never spill liquid of any
kind on the set.
Do not use attachments not
recommended by the manufacturer, as
they may cause hazards.
Clean the cabinet of the LCD Projection
TV with a dry soft cloth. To remove dust
from the screen, wipe it gently with a soft
cloth. Stubborn stains may be removed
with a cloth slightly dampened with
solution of mild soap and warm water. Never use strong
solvents such as thinner or benzine for cleaning.
If the picture becomes dark after using the LCD
Projection TV for a long period of time, it may be
necessary to clean the inside of the LCD Projection TV.
Consult qualified service personnel.
On contamination on the screen surface
The screen surface has a special coating to reduce a
picture displayed by reflecting. If you clean the screen
surface in the wrong way, the screen may be damaged. To
clean the screen, do as follows:
Clean the screen with a soft cloth, such as the
supplied cleaning cloth or a glass cleaning cloth.
To remove hard contamination, use the supplied
cleaning cloth or a glass cleaning cloth moistened
with a solution of mild detergent and water.
Do not use any type of abrasive pad, alkaline
cleaner, acid cleaner, scouring powder, chemical
cloth, or solvent such as alcohol, benzene or thinner,
as these may scratch the screen's coating.
Water and Moisture
Do not use power-line operated sets
near water -- for example, near a
bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, or
laundry tub, in a wet basement, or
near a swimming pool, etc.
Do not place the set on an unstable
cart, stand, table or shelf. The set
may fall, causing serious injury to a
child or an adult and serious damage
to the set. Use only a cart or stand
recommended by the manufacturer
for the specific model of LCD
Projection TV. An appliance and cart
combination should be moved with
care. Quick stops, excessive force,
and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart
combination to overturn.
The slots and openings in the cabinet and in the back or
bottom are provided for necessary ventilation. To ensure
reliable operation of the set, and to protect it from
overheating, these slots and openings must never be
blocked or covered.
Never cover the slots and openings
with a cloth or other materials.
