The plasma TV you have purchased has the highest quality codes and standards possible in this business line. This plasma TV contains a mass comprising of pixels. A pixel comprises of three elements (red, green and blue). Despite the fact that the highest quality check practices have been used during the manufacture of screens, that some pixels or pixel elements are faulty cannot be excluded 100%. These faults may occur as continuously lighted pixels, unlighted pixels or unbalanced pixels (flashing).

Therefore, we beg your understanding, stating that these faults are not covered by guarantee. This is applicable so long as the total of all the faulty pixels or pixel elements do not exceed the 0.01% of the total number. The brightness and contrast of plasma screen decreases in time. Plasma screens are phosporus based and in some operating conditions “Burning” effect may occur. This is actually the natural deterioration of phosphorus and an ordinary course in plasma technology.

The operating conditions mentioned above are:

-displaying static images for long durations

-displaying the same background continuously

-using a format other than full screen (e.g. 4:3) for long durations.

When burning occurs, it is usually not correctable.

Please follow the below listed recommendations to avoid or decrease burning effect:

-For the first 100 hours of use, please use the animated pictures or constantly moving still pictures in full screen mode (slide show).

-Please use your plasma TV in full screen mode (16:9)

-In case the plasma screen is used as a PC monitor,

please use animated pictures.

Always turn the screen off when not in use.

-Reduce contrast and brightness as far as possible.

-If possible, display the images with maximum color profundity and scale.

Certain situations may cause a buzzing sound in the electronics of the screen. This usually results from the fact that the grounded cables of the main electric supply are different. A method to solve this problem is inserting a filter between the antenna cable and antenna input. These filters are available at all specialist commercial stores. If the plasma screen is connected to an external antenna, it should be grounded to protect it from electrical dangers and static discharges. Grounding should be in compliance with the legal regulations in implementation and be performed accordingly.

Environmental Conditions

Inserting the Connection Line

When the connecting or inserting the mains lead and video cable (e.g. SCART, Y/C…) the following points should be taken into consideration:

Please align the connection lines. Note that signal lines are not placed directly on the surface of the screen.

For high image quality, use only covered high quality signal cable. To connect video signal, high quality 75 coaxial cable should be used. A signal low-qualitysignal cable may cause distortions and shadows on the displayed picture as well as exceeding the permissible EMC level. For perfect and safe operation of the device, mechanical interlocks for single plug and outlet sockets are necessary.

You should also avoid placing signal sources such as computer or video recording device in front of the screen.

Please place these signal sources next to or behind the screen.

Always turn your plasma television off before connecting any signal source to it.

The Connection of Signal Sources:

Connect the cables of your signal sources to the input panel of your plasma screen.

For external sound signal sources, you need an internal television adjuster antenna cable and a proper cinch cable.

Sound Connection (playback)

Your plasma screen has various sound outputs on the input panel for sound playback. It is possible to connect your music set or Dolby Surround System as well as external loudspeakers to your internal amplifier.

Turn your plasma screen off before connecting external loudspeakers. Take into consideration the technical data of loudspeakers’ output and make sure that the size of the loudspeakers is sufficient.

Before establishing a connection between you music set or Dolby Surround system and your plasma screen, always turn the device off.

The PC connection you will establish on the video divider may deteriorate picture quality for the PC mode.


Connecting The Mains Lead

To obtain the best image quality, always use the supplied mains lead.

First insert the mains lead into the input panel and only then plug it into the socket.

Never ever use a damaged mains lead!

To ensure safe operation, only use plugs with grounding conductor system.

A line filter and keys ensure safe operation in case of normal network fluctuations to balance the supply voltages. In case the network voltage is out of certain limits, please contact your responsible sales agency. In case the mains lead cannot be used due to the different standards in your country, please make sure to use a mains lead in compliance with the below listed standards unique to countries:













This is not the exact list. It may be necessary to choose a different safety standard for safety reasons.

To avoid accidents resulting from electric shock, mains leads of all degrees should contain three cable conductors of minimum 10A/0.75 mm2. One of three cables should be applied to the both ends of the mains as grounding contact connection.

indicator turns to red.

Plasma screen is always connected to power supply network in stand-bymode. To cut the connection completely, you should switch the network key to 0 position and disconnect the mains lead from the plug.

The screen has an electric adaptor and it may be operated with a supply voltage of 230V AC and 50Hz.

Note 1: If there is no broadcast signal, your television will switch tostand-bymode in five minutes.

Note 2: If your remote control has a fault or its batteries have been used up, there are “MENU”

“SOURCE”, “ PROG ”, “ VOL ” front panel buttons to operate it.


To reveal the battery compartment, remove the back cover and make sure that you have inserted the batteries correctly.

The batteries suitable for this remote control are UM- 4, IEC R03 or AAA 1.5V.

Do not mix a used, old battery with a new battery or do not use mixed battery types.

The performance of the remote control will deteriorate from a distance farther than 8 metres or out of an angle of 30 degrees.

Operation Modes


Note that at the beginning of use, the operation mode should be in full screen format setting especially in the first 100-150operation hour (see: Displaying of thesub-menu,Picture Format). This prevents differences of brightness on picture areas.

Also, to prevent permanent shadows on the displayed picture, avoid displaying any still images in the first operation hours (computer mode, teletext pages, Photo CD images, etc.). If the plasma television is to be used as computer monitor, it is recommended that you use a screen saver.

Computer mode

For the best image, we recommend 848 x 480, 640 x 480 or 720 x 400 pixel resolution. 848x480 pixel resolution corresponds to the screen matrix and offers the best image. You can obtain the driver for this resolution from the Internet pages of well-knowngraphic card producers. Unlike the applications in CRT monitors, for a vibration free presentation on flat screens, it is not necessary to select high image reconditioning. 60Hz of reconditioning is recommended.

Video recorder mode

If your recorder offers Y/C (S-Video)format playback, it is recommended to use Y/C(S-Video)inputs to improve image quality. DVD player mode

For the best use, it is recommended to use RGB operation mode connectable to SCART 1 input. In case your player does not offer this operation mode, please use the Y/C (S Video) signal mode.

Image adherence

The manufacturer would like to state that during watching frozen pictures (e.g. computer playback) for long durations, the image remains still visible in full mask for a few minutes when a different source is played afterwards. This is known as “image adherence”. This “lost” image results from the system and it is not an error. Therefore, it is not deemed to be a situation that requires for guarantee.

Video cable

To connect video signal, high quality 75 ? coaxial cable should be used. A signal low-qualitysignal cable may cause distortions and shadows on the displayed picture as well as exceeding the permissible EMC level. For perfect and safe operation of the device, mechanical interlocks for single plug and outlet sockets are necessary.
