Condensation may also form during the summer if the unit is exposed to the breeze from an air conditioner. In such cases, change the location of the unit. HOW TO HANDLE THE LCD PANEL • Do not press hard or jolt the LCD panel. It may cause the LCD panel glass to break and injury may occur. • 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 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. Possible Adverse Effects on LCD Panel: If a fixed (non-moving) pattern remains on the LCD Panel for long periods of time, the image can become permanently engrained in the LCD Panel and cause subtle but permanent ghost images. This type of damage is NOT COVERED BY YOUR WARRANTY. Never leave your LCD Panel on for long periods of time while it is displaying the following formats or images: • Fixed Images, such as stock tickers, video game patterns, TV station logos, and websites. • Special Formats that do not use the entire screen. For example, viewing letterbox style (16:9) media on a normal (4:3) display (black bars at top and bottom of screen); or viewing normal style (4:3) media on a widescreen (16:9) display (black bars on left and right sides of screen). The following symptoms are not signs of malfunction but technical limitation. Therefore we disclaim any responsibility for these symptoms. • LCD Panels are manufactured using an extremely high level of precision technology, however sometimes parts of the screen may be missing picture elements or have luminous spots. This is not a sign of a malfunction. • Do not install the LCD Panel near electronic equipment that produces electromagnetic waves.

EN 26 Reception disturbances IGNITION NOISE: Black spots or horizontal streaks may appear, picture may flutter or drift. Usually caused by interference from automobile ignition systems, neon lamps, electrical drills, and other electrical appliances. GHOSTS: Ghosts are caused by the television signal following two paths. One is the direct path and the other is reflected from tall buildings, hills or some other objects. Changing the direction or position of the antenna may improve reception. Ghosting may also be caused by defects in the antenna system such as unshielded leads or connecting several sets to the same antenna without using multiple antenna couplers. SNOW: If your receiver is located in the fringe area of a television station where the signal is weak, your picture may be marred by the appearance of small dots. When the signal is extremely weak, it may be necessary to install a special antenna to improve the picture. RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE: The interference produces moving ripples or diagonal streaks, and in some cases, causes loss of contrast in the picture. • • • • PREVENTION OF AN OBSTACLE TO RADIO RECEIVERS This television has been designed pursuant to the FCC class B Rules.
