SET-UP AND SAFETY___________________________

Please note the following information when setting up your television set.

This television set is designed to receive and display video and audio signals.

Any other use is expressly prohibited.

The ideal viewing distance is 5 times the screen diagonal.

External light falling on the screen impairs picture quality.

Ensure sufficient clearance between the TV and the wall cabinet.

The television set is designed for use in dry rooms. If you do use it in the open, please ensure that it is protected from moisture, such as rain or splashing water. Do not expose the television set to any moisture.

Do not place any vessels such as vases on the television, as they may spill liquid, thus presenting a safety risk.

Place the television set on a solid, level surface. Do not place any objects such as newspapers on the television set or cloth or similar items beneath it.

Do not place the television set close to heating units or in direct sunlight, as this will impair cooling.

Heat build-upcan be dangerous and shortens the operating life of the television set. For reasons of safety, have a specialist remove any dirt deposits in the set from time to time.

Do not open the television set under any circumstances. Warranty claims are excluded for damage resulting from improper handling.

Ensure that the mains cable and the mains adapter are not damaged. The television set may only be operated with the mains cable/adapter supplied.

Thunderstorms are a danger to all electrical devices. Even if the television set is switched off, it can be damaged by a lightning strike to the mains or the antenna cable. Always disconnect the mains and antenna plugs during a storm.

Clean the screen with a soft, damp cloth. Only use plain water.


Do not connect any other equipment while the device is switched on. Switch off the other equipment as well before connecting it.

Only plug the device into the mains socket after you have connected the external devices and the antenna.



SET-UP AND SAFETY___________________________

Please note when deciding where to put the device that furniture surfaces are covered by various types of lacquer and plastic, most of which contain chemical additives. These may cause corrosion to the feet of the device, thus resulting in stains on the surface of the furniture which can be difficult or impossible to remove.

The screen of your LCD television meets the highest quality standards and has been checked for pixel faults.

Despite the great care taken in manufacturing, technological reasons make it impossible to completely discount the possibility that some pixels may be faulty.

Provided they are within the thresholds specified by the DIN norm, pixel faults of this kind cannot be regarded as a defect as defined by the warranty.



Connecting the antenna and the mains cable







1 Plug the antenna cable of the rooftop antenna into the » « antenna socket on the television.

2 Plug the mains cable supplied into the mains socket of the television.

3 Plug the mains cable into the wall socket.


Only plug the device into the mains socket after you have connected the external devices and the antenna.

The connected devices have to be set in the »Installation« menu at the »Devices« point.

Detailed notes can be found in the »Easy Dialog System« interactive operating instructions.

Consult page 11 and the following pages to see how to use the

Easy Dialog System.




High definition – HD ready

Your television can receive high-definitiontelevision signals (HDTV).

You can connect the input sources (HDTV set-topbox or HDTV DVD player) to either the »DVI« socket (digital HDTV signal) or the »Y Pb Pr« socket (analogue HDTV signal).

This ensures that you can view digital HDTV programmes, even if they are copy-protected(HDCPHigh-DefinitionCopy Protection).

Inserting batteries in the remote control

1 Open the battery compartment by removing the lid.

2 Insert the batteries (Mignon type, for exampleUM-3or AA, 2x1,5V). Observe the polarity (marked on the base of the battery compartment).

3 Close the battery compartment.


If the television no longer reacts properly to remote control commands, the batteries may be flat. Be sure to remove used batteries.

The manufacturer accepts no liability for damage resulting from used batteries.

Environmental note

Batteries, including those which contain no heavy metal, may not be disposed of with household waste. Please dispose of used batteries in an environmentally sound manner. Find out about the legal regulations which apply in your area.

Additional Information for units sold in the UK.

Units sold in the UK are suitable for operation from a 240V ac, 50Hz mains supply.

The range of multi-systemreceivers is built to work in most European countries. However, the mains plug and socket system for the UK differs from many European countries.

This appliance has been supplied with a fitted, non-removable,approved converter plug for use in the UK. This converter plug is fitted with a 5A rated fuse.

In case this appliance is supplied with a moulded 2-pinEuro plug only, which is unsuitable for UK operation, this must be cut off and immediately disposed of. An approved 13A,3-pinUK plug should then be fitted by a qualified electrician.


The severed Euro plug must be destroyed to avoid a possible shock hazard should it be inserted into a socket elsewhere.

If a non-rewireable3-pinplug or a rewireable 13A (BS1363)3-pinplug is used, it must be fitted with a 5A ASTA or BSI approved BS1362 fuse. If any other type of plug is used it must be protected by a 5A fuse either in the plug, or at the distribution board. If this type of plug becomes defective, ensure that the fuse is removed before disposal, to eliminate potential shock hazard.

If it is necessary to change the fuse in the non-rewireableplug, the correct type and rating (5A ASTA or BSI approved BS1362) must be used and the fuse cover must be refitted. If the fuse cover is lost or damaged, the lead and plug must not be used until a replacement is obtained. Replacement fuse covers should be obtained from your dealer.


The wires in the mains lead are colour coded in accordance with the following code:



As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of your appliance may not correspond with the coloured marking identifying terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:

Connect the BLUE coloured wire to plug terminal marked with the letter “N” or coloured black.

Connect the BROWN coloured wire to the plug terminal marked with the letter “L” or coloured red.

In no circumstance must any of the wires be connected to the terminal marked with the letter “E”, earth symbol “ ”, coloured green, or green & yellow.
