IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
“Cracking” noise: A cracking noise that
occurs when watching or turning off the TV
is generated by plastic thermal contraction
due to temperature and humidity. This noise
is common for products where thermal
deformation is required.
Electrical circuit humming/panel buzzing: A
low level noise is generated from a high-
speed switching circuit, which supplies a large
amount of current to operate a product. It
varies depending on the product.
This generated sound does not affect the
performance and reliability of the product.
Take care not to touch the ventilation
openings. When watching the TV for a long
period, the ventilation openings may become
hot. This does not affect the performance of
the product or cause defects in the product.
If the TV feels cold to the touch, there may
be a small “flicker” when it is turned on. This
is normal, there is nothing wrong with TV.
Some minute dot defects may be visible on
the screen, appearing as tiny red, green, or
blue spots. However, they have no adverse
effect on the TV’s performance. Avoid
touching the LCD screen or holding your
finger(s) against it for long periods of time.
Doing so may produce some temporary
distortion effects on the screen.
Preventing “Image burn” or “Burn-in” on your TV
If a fixed image displays on the TV screen for
a long period of time, it will be imprinted and
become a permanent disfigurement on the
screen. This is “image burn” or “burn-in” and
not covered by the warranty.
If the aspect ratio of the TV is set to 4:3 for a
long period of time, image burn may occur on
the letterboxed area of the screen.
Avoid displaying a fixed image on the TV
screen for a long period of time (2 or more
hours for LCD, 1 or more hours for the Plasma
TV) to prevent image burn.
