If you have a Dynamic Network, you should use an ADSL modem or router that supports the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Modems and routers that support DHCP automatically provide the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS values your product needs to access the Internet so you do not have to enter them manually. Most home networks are Dynamic Networks. Some networks require a Static IP address. If your network requires a Static IP address, you must enter the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS values manually on your product Cable Setup Screen when you set up the network connection. To get the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS values, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If you have a Windows computer, you can also get these values through your computer. · You can use ADSL modems that support DHCP if your network requires a Static IP
address. · ADSL modems that support DHCP also let you use Static IP addresses.

Prevention of afterimage burn-in
What is afterimage burn-in?
Afterimage burn-in should not occur when the panel is operating normally. Normal operation refers to a continuously changing video pattern. If the panel displays a fixed pattern for an extended period of time a slight voltage difference may occur between the electrodes in pixels that control the liquid crystals. Such a voltage difference between electrodes increases with time and makes the liquid crystals thinner. When this occurs, a previous image can remain on the screen when the pattern changes.
CAUTION This information is a guide to prevent afterimage burn-in. Viewing a fixed screen for an extended period of time may cause afterimage burn-in. This problem is not included in warranty.

Recommended prevention practices

Viewing a fixed screen for an extended period of time may cause afterimage burnins or smudges. Turn off the product when it is not used for a long time, activate the Power Saving mode, or run a moving screen saver.
