Read and understand all instructions before you use your TV. If damage is caused by failure to follow the instructions, the warranty does not apply. Risk of electric shock or fire! Never expose the TV to rain or water. Never place liquid containers, such as vases, near the TV. If liquids are spilled on or into the TV, disconnect the TV from the power outlet immediately. Contact Philips TV Consumer Care to have the TV checked before use.  Never place the TV, remote control or batteries near naked flames or other heat sources, including direct sunlight. To prevent the spread of fire, keep candles or other flames away from the TV, remote control and batteries at all times.

Risk of damage to the TV!  Two people are required to lift and carry a TV that weighs more than 25kg or 55lbs.  When stand mounting the TV, use only the supplied stand. Secure the stand to the TV tightly. Place the TV on a flat, level surface that can support the combined weight of the TV and the stand.  When wall mounting the TV, use only a wall mount that can support the weight of the TV. Secure the wall mount to a wall that can support the combined weight of the TV and wall mount. TP Vision bears no responsibility for improper wall mounting that results in accident, injury or damage.  If you need to store the TV, disassemble the stand from the TV. Never lay the TV on its back with the stand installed. Before you connect the TV to the power outlet, ensure that the power voltage matches the value printed on the back of the TV. Never connect the TV to the power outlet if the voltage is different. Parts of this product may be made of glass. Handle with care to avoid injury and damage.

  

Never insert objects into the ventilation slots or other openings on the TV. Never expose the remote control or batteries to rain, water or excessive heat. Avoid force coming onto power plugs. Ensure that the power plug is fully inserted into the power socket. Loose power plugs can cause arcing or fire. When the TV is swivelled, ensure that no strain is exerted on the power cord. Strain on the power cord can loosen connections and cause arcing.

Risk of injury to children! Follow these precautions to prevent the TV from toppling over and causing injury to children:  Never place the TV on a surface covered by a cloth or other material that can be pulled away.  Ensure that no part of the TV hangs over the edge of the surface.




1 Important

To disconnect the TV from the mains power, the power plug of the TV must be disconnected. When disconnecting the power, always pull the power plug, never the cord. Ensure that you have full access to the power plug, power cord and outlet socket at all times.

Never place the TV on tall furniture, such as a bookcase, without anchoring both the furniture and TV to the wall or a suitable support. Educate children about the dangers of climbing on furniture to reach the TV.

Risk of swallowing batteries!  The product or remote control may contain a coin-type battery, which can be swallowed. Keep the battery out of reach of children at all times! Risk of overheating!  Never install the TV in a confined space. Always leave a space of at least 4 inches or 10 cm around the TV for ventilation. Ensure that curtains or other objects never cover the ventilation slots on the TV. Risk of injury, fire or power cord damage!  Never place the TV or any objects on the power cord.  Disconnect the TV from the socket and aerial before lightning storms. During lightning storms, never touch any part of the TV, power cord or aerial cable. Risk of hearing damage!  Avoid using earphones or headphones at high volumes or for prolonged periods of time. Low temperatures  If the TV is transported in temperatures below 5°C or 41°F, unpack the TV and wait until the TV temperature matches room temperature before connecting the TV to the power outlet.

To avoid discomfort such as dizziness, headache or disorientation, we recommend not watching 3D for extended periods of time. If you experience any discomfort, stop watching 3D and do not immediately engage in any potentially hazardous activity (for example driving a car) until your symptoms have disappeared. If symptoms persist, do not resume watching 3D without consulting a medical professional first. Parents should monitor their children during 3D viewing and ensure they do not experience any discomfort as mentioned above. Watching 3D is not recommended for children under six years of age as their visual system is not fully developed yet. Do not use the 3D glasses for any purpose other than watching this 3D TV.

   Risk of damage to the TV screen! Never touch, push, rub or strike the screen with any object. Unplug the TV before cleaning. Clean the TV and frame with a soft damp cloth and wipe gently. Never use substances such as alcohol, chemicals or household cleaners on the TV. To avoid deformations and colour fading, wipe off water drops as soon as possible. Avoid stationary images as much as possible. Stationary images are images that remain onscreen for extended periods of time. Stationary images include onscreen menus, black bars, time displays, etc. If you must use stationary images, reduce screen contrast and brightness to avoid screen damage.

3D health warning
For 3D TVs only.  If you or your family have a history of epilepsy or photosensitive seizures, consult a medical professional before exposing yourself to flashing light sources, rapid image sequences or 3D viewing.
