FEATURES OF THIS TV

What is a Plasma TV ?
Using plasma is the best way to achieve flat panel displays with excellent image quality and large screen sizes that
are easily viewable. The Plasma TV can be thought of as a descendant of the neon lamp and or a series of fluo-
rescent lamps.

How does it work?


Plasma TV is an array of cells, known as pixels, which are comprised of three sub-pixels, corresponding to the col-
ors red, green, and blue. Gas in a plasma state is used to react with phosphors in each sub-pixel to produce col-
ored light (red, green, or blue). These phosphors are the same types used in Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) devices
such as televisions and common computer monitors.
Plasma TV offers a rich, dynamic display because each sub-pixel is individually controlled by advanced electronics
to produce over 16 million different colors. This means that you get perfect images that are easily viewable in a
display that is fewer than five inches thick.

160° - Wide angle range of vision


Your flat panel plasma screen offers an exceptionally broad viewing angle of over 160 degrees. This means that
the display is clear and visible to viewers anywhere in the room.

Wide Screen
The wide screen offers a theater-like experience in your own home.

Multimedia
Connect your plasma display to a PC and use it for conferencing, games, and Internet browsing. The Picture-in-
Picture feature allows you to view your PC and video images simultaneously.

Versatile
The light weight and thin size makes it easy to install your plasma display in a variety of locations where conven-
tional TVs do not fit.
The Plasma TV Manufacturing Process: a few minute colored dots may be present on the Plasma
TV screen
The Plasma TV is composed of 0.9 to 2.2 million cells. A few cell defects will normally occur in the Plasma TV
manufacturing process. Several tiny, minute colored dots visible on the screen should be acceptable. This also
occurs in other Plasma TV manufacturers' products. The tiny dots appearing does not mean that this Plasma TV
is defective. Thus a few cell defects are not sufficient cause for the Plasma TV to be exchanged or returned. Our
production technology minimizes these cell defects during the manufacture and operation of this product.

ATTACHING THE TV TO A WALL

PREPARATION
* This feature is not available for all models.
■ Set it up close to the wall so the set doesn’t fall over when it is pushed backwards.
■ The instructions shown below is a safer way to set up the set, which is to fix it on the wall so the set doesn’t
fall over when it is pulled in the forward direction. It will prevent the set from falling for-ward and hurting
people. It will also prevent the set from damage caused by fall. Please make sure that children don’t climb
on or hang from the set.

1 Use the set brackets/bolts to fix the set to the wall


as shown in the picture.
1 (If your set has the bolts in set brackets/bolts posi-
2 tion before inserting the set brackets/bolts, loosen
the bolts.)
* Insert the set brackets/bolts and tighten them
securely in the upper holes.

2 Secure the wall brackets with the bolts (not provid-


ed as parts of the set, must purchase separately) on
the wall. Match the height of the bracket that is
mounted on the wall.

3 Use a sturdy rope (not provided as parts of the set,


3
must purchase separately) to tie the set. It is safer
to tie the rope so it becomes horizontal between
the wall and the set.

! NOTE
G When moving the set to another place undo the ropes first.
G Use a set holder or a cabinet that is big and strong enough for the size and weight of the set.
G To use the set safely make sure that the height of the bracket that is mounted on the wall is same as that
of the set.

USE POWER CORD HOLDER


After connecting the power cord to the AC input
terminal, remove the bolt at the hole on the back
cover and fix the power cord at the rear side of the
TV by using the bracket for fixing the power cord.

MAINTENANCE
Early malfunctions can be prevented. Careful and regular cleaning can extend the amount of time you will
have your new TV. Be sure to turn the power off and unplug the power cord before you begin any cleaning.

Cleaning the Screen

1 Here’s a great way to keep the dust off your screen for a while. Wet a soft cloth in a mixture of lukewarm
water and a little fabric softener or dish washing detergent. Wring the cloth until it’s almost dry, and then
use it to wipe the screen.

2 Make sure the excess water is off the screen, and then let it air-dry before you turn on your TV.

Cleaning the Cabinet


■ To remove dirt or dust, wipe the cabinet with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
■ Please be sure not to use a wet cloth.
APPENDIX

Extended Absence

CAUTION
If you expect to leave your TV dormant for a long time (such as a vacation), it’s a good idea to unplug
the power cord to protect against possible damage from lightning or power surges.
