CHILD SAFETY

PROPER TELEVISION PLACEMENT MATTERS

THE CONSUMER ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY CARES

TELEVISION PLACEMENT MATTERS
  • Manufacturers, retailers and the rest of the consumer electronics industry are committed to making home entertainment safe and enjoyable.
  • As you enjoy your television, please note that all televisions – new and old – must be supported on proper stands or installed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Televisions that are inappropriately situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks, speakers, chests, carts, etc., may fall over, resulting in injury.
TUNE IN TO SAFETY
TUNE IN TO SAFETY
  • ALWAYS follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the safe installation of your television.
  • ALWAYS read and follow all instructions for proper use of your television.
  • NEVER allow children to climb on or play on the television or the furniture on which the television is placed.
  • NEVER place the television on furniture that can easily be used as steps, such as a chest of drawers.
  • ALWAYS install the television where it cannot be pushed, pulled over or knocked down.
  • ALWAYS route cords and cables connected to the television so that they cannot be tripped over, pulled or grabbed.
WALL OR CEILING MOUNT YOUR TELEVISION
MOUNTING TELEVISION
  • ALWAYS contact your retailer about professional installation if you have any doubts about your ability to safely mount your television.
  • ALWAYS use a mount that has been recommended by the television manufacturer and has a safety certification by an independent laboratory (such as UL, CSA, ETL).
  • ALWAYS follow all instructions supplied by the television and mount manufacturers.
  • ALWAYS make sure that the wall or ceiling where you are mounting the television is appropriate. Some mounts are not designed to be mounted to walls and ceilings with steel studs or cinder block construction. If you are unsure, contact a professional installer.
  • Televisions can be heavy. A minimum of two people is required for a wall or ceiling mount installation.
MOVING AN OLDER TELEVISION TO A NEW PLACE IN YOUR HOME
MOVING TELEVISION IN HOME
  • Many new television buyers move their older CRT televisions into a secondary room after the purchase of a flat-panel television. Special care should be made in the placement of older CRT televisions.
  • ALWAYS place your older CRT television on furniture that is sturdy and appropriate for its size and weight.
  • NEVER place your older CRT television on a dresser where children may be tempted to use the drawers to climb.
  • ALWAYS make sure your older CRT television does not hang over the edge of your furniture.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

  8. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
  9. 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.
  10. Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the apparatus.
  11. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  18. Your TV has four VESA mounting holes on the back.
    If you attach a wall-mount bracket or TV stand to the back of your TV, the bracket or stand must be securely attached using all four holes. If you do not use all four mounting holes, your TV may fall and cause property damage or personal injury. See the documentation that came with your wall mount or TV stand for complete mounting instructions.
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.
Safety check
After completing any service or repair to this device, ask  the service technician to perform routine safety checks to determine that your TV is in correct operating condition.
Power source
Operate your TV only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure 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.

Outdoor antenna
  1. Antenna lead-in wire
  2. Grounding clamp
  3. Antenna discharge unit
  4. Grounding conductors
  5. Ground clamps
  6. Power service grounding electrode system
  7. Electric service equipment

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.
