01 Important User Guidance Information

In order to obtain maximum enjoyment from this Pioneer PureVision PDP-506FDE/PDP-436FDE Plasma Display System, please first read this information carefully.

With the Pioneer PureVision PDP-506FDE/PDP-436FDE, you can be assured of a high quality Plasma Display System with long-life and high reliability. To achieve images of exceptional quality, this Pioneer Plasma Display System incorporates state-of-the-art design and construction, as well as very precise and highly advanced technology.

The Pioneer PureVision PDP-506FDE/PDP-436FDE incorporates the latest in colour filter technology – Direct Colour Filter. This improves the colour / picture reproduction of these models as compared to previous models. It also eliminates the need for a physical glass panel to be placed in front of the plasma panel, which furthers Pioneer’s continued goal of reducing environmental waste in consumer electronics, now during the manufacturing process and in the future during the recycling process.

Over the course of its lifetime, the luminosity of the Pioneer PDP-506FDE/PDP-436FDE Plasma Display System will diminish very slowly, such as with all phosphor-based screens (for example, a traditional tube-type television). To enjoy beautiful and bright images on your Pioneer Plasma Display System for a long time, please carefully read and follow the usage guidances below:

Usage guidelines

All phosphor-based screens (including conventional tube-type televisions) can be affected by displaying static images for a prolonged period. Plasma Display System’s are no exception to this rule. After-image and permanent effects on the screen can be avoided by taking some basic precautions. By following the recommendations listed below, you can ensure longer and satisfactory results from your plasma:

Whenever possible, avoid frequently displaying the same image or virtually still moving pictures (e.g. closed-captioned images or video game images which have static portions).

Do not display Teletext for a prolonged period of time.

Avoid viewing the On Screen Display for extended periods, from a decoder, DVD player, VCR and all other components.

Do not leave the same picture freeze-framed or paused continuously over a long period of time, when using the still picture mode from a TV, VCR, DVD player or any other component.

Images which have both very bright areas and very dark areas side by side should not be displayed for a prolonged period of time.

When playing a game, the “GAME” mode setting within “AV Selection” is strongly recommended. However, please limit its use to less than 2 hours at a time.

After playing a game or displaying any still image, it is best to view a normal moving picture in the “WIDE” or “FULL” screen setting for more than 3 times the length of the previous still moving image.

After using the Plasma Display System, always switch the display to “STANDBY” mode.

Installation guidelines

The Pioneer PureVision PDP-506FDE/PDP-436FDE Plasma Display System incorporates a very thin design. To ensure safety, please take the proper measures to mount or install the Plasma Display, in order to prevent the unit from tipping over in the event of vibration or accidental movement.

6

This product should be installed by using only parts and accessories designed by PIONEER. Use of accessories other than the PIONEER stand or installation bracket may result in instability, and could cause injury. For custom installation, please consult the dealer where the unit was purchased. To ensure correct installation, experienced and qualified experts must install the unit. PIONEER will not be held responsible for accident or damage caused by the use of parts and accessories manufactured by other companies.

To avoid malfunction and overheating, make sure that the vents on the main unit are not blocked when installing to ensure proper heat emission:

Distance the unit slightly from other equipment, walls, etc. For the minimum space required around the unit, see page 15.

Do not fit the unit inside narrow spaces where ventilation is poor.

Do not cover with a cloth, etc.

Clean the vents on the sides and rear of the unit to remove dust build-up, by using a vacuum cleaner set to its lowest suction setting.

Do not place the product on a carpet or blanket.

Do not leave the product tilted over except the case of vertical installation of the Media Receiver.

Do not reverse the product.

Using the unit without proper ventilation may cause the internal temperature to rise, and could result in possible malfunction. When the surrounding or internal temperature exceeds a certain degree, the display will automatically power off in order to cool the internal electronics and prevent hazardous occurrences.

Any malfunction may occur due to: an inappropriate installation site, improper assembly, installation, mounting, or operation of this product, modifications made to the product. However, PIONEER cannot be held responsible for such accidents or malfunction.

NOTE

The following are typical effects and characteristics of a phosphor-based matrix display and as such, are not covered by the manufacturer’s limited warranties:

Permanent residual images upon the phosphors of the panel.

The existence of a minute number of inactive light cells.

Panel generated sounds, examples: Fan motor noise, and electrical circuit humming / glass panel buzzing

Important User Guidance Information

01

CAUTION

PIONEER bears no responsibility for any damage arising from incorrect use of the product by you or other people, malfunctions when in use, other product related problems, and use of the product except in cases where the company must be liable.

Plasma Display protection function

When still images (such as photos and computer images) stay on the screen for an extended period of time, the screen will be slightly dimmed. This is because the protection function of the Plasma Display automatically adjusts the brightness to protect the screen when detecting still images; so this does not designate malfunction. The screen is dimmed when a still image is detected for about three minutes.

Information of pixel defect

Plasma screens display information using pixels. Pioneer plasma display panels contain a very large number of pixels. (Depending on the panel size; over 2.3 million cells in case of a 43 inch display, over 2.9 million pixels in case of a 50 inch display, over 3.1 million cells in case of a 61 inch display). All Pioneer display panels are manufactured using a very high level of ultra-precision technology and undergo individual quality control.

In rare cases, some pixels can be permanently switched off, or on, resulting in either a black or coloured pixel permanently fixed on the screen.

This effect is common to all plasma displays because it is a consequence of the technology.

If the defective pixels are visible at a normal viewing distance of between 2.5 and 3.5 meters whilst viewing a normal broadcast (i.e. not a test card, still image or single colour display) please contact the supplying dealer.

If, however, they can only be seen close up or during single colour displays then this is considered normal for this technology.

Infrared rays

The Plasma Display releases infrared rays because of its characteristics. Depending on how the Plasma Display is in use, the remote controls of nearby equipment may be adversely affected or wireless headphones using infrared rays are interfered by noise. If this is the case, place that equipment at a location where its remote control sensor is not affected.

Radio interference

While this product meets the required specifications, it emits a small amount of noise. If you place such equipment as an AM radio, personal computer, and VCR close to this product, that equipment may be interfered. If this happens, place that equipment far enough from this product.

Plasma Display driving sound

The screen of the Plasma Display is composed of extremely fine pixels and these pixels emit light according to received video signals. This principle may make you hear buzz sound or electrical circuit hamming from the Plasma Display.

Also note that the rotation speed of the cooling fan motor increases when the ambient temperature of the Media Receiver becomes high. You may hear the sound of the fan motor at that time.

Do not attach such items as labels and tape to the product.

This may result in the discolouration or scratch of the cabinet.

When not using the product for a long period of time

If you do not use the product for a long period of time, the functions of the product may be adversely affected. Switch on and run the product occasionally.

Condensation

Condensation may take place on the surface or inside of the product when the product is rapidly moved from a cold place to a warm place or just after a heater is switched on in winter morning, for example. When condensation takes place, do not switch on the product and wait until condensation disappears. Using the product with condensation may result in malfunction.

Cleaning the surface of the screen and the glossy surface of the front cabinet

When cleaning the surface of the screen or the glossy surface of the front cabinet, gently wipe it with a dry soft cloth; the supplied cleaning cloth or other similar cloths (e.g., cotton and flannel). If you use a dusty or hard cloth or if you rub the screen hard, the surface of the product will be scratched.

If you clean the surface of the screen with a wet cloth, water droplets on the surface may enter into the product, resulting in malfunction.

Cleaning the cabinet

When cleaning the cabinet of this product, gently wipe it with a clean soft cloth (e.g., cotton and flannel). If you use a dusty or hard cloth or if you rub the cabinet hard, the surface of the cabinet will be scratched.

The cabinet of this product is mostly composed of plastic. Do not use chemicals such as benzene or thinner to clean the cabinet. Using these chemicals may result in quality deterioration or coating removal.

Do not expose the product to volatile gas or fluid such as pesticide. Do not make the product contact with rubber or vinyl products for a long period of time. The effect of plasticizer in the plastic may result in quality deterioration or coating removal.

If you clean the surface of the cabinet with a wet cloth, water droplets on the surface may enter into the product, resulting in malfunction.

Handles at the rear of the Plasma Display

Do not remove the handles from the rear of the Plasma Display.

When moving the Plasma Display, ask another person for help and use the handles attached to the rear of the Plasma Display. Do not move the Plasma Display by holding only a single handle. Use the handles as shown.

Do not use the handles to hang the product when installing or carrying the product, for example. Do not use the handles for the purpose of preventing the product from tilting over.

01 Important User Guidance Information

CAUTION

Panel sticking and after-image lag

Displaying the same images such as still images for a long time may cause after-image lagging. This may occur in the following two cases.

1After-image lagging due to remaining electrical load

When image patterns with very high peak luminance are displayed for more than 1 minute, after-image lagging may occur due to the remaining electric load. The after-images remaining on the screen will disappear when moving images are displayed. The time for the after-images to disappear depends on the luminance of the still images and the time they had been displayed.

2After-image (lag image) due to burning

Avoid displaying the same image on the Plasma Display continuously over a long period of time. If the same image is displayed continuously for several hours, or for shorter periods of time over several days, a permanent after-image may remain on the screen due to burning of the fluorescent materials. Such images may become less noticeable if moving images are later displayed, but they will not disappear completely.

The energy save function can be set to help prevent damage from screen burning (see page 35).

If you want to dispose this product, do not mix it with general household waste. There is a separate collection system for used electronic products in accordance with legislation that requires proper treatment, recovery and recycling.

 

 

 

 

 

Private households in the 25 member states of the EU, in Switzerland and Norway may return their used electronic products free of charge to designated collection

 

facilities or to a retailer (if you purchase a similar new one).

 

For countries not mentioned above, please contact your local authorities for the correct method of disposal.

 

By doing so you will ensure that your disposed product undergoes the necessary treatment, recovery and recycling and thus prevent potential negative effects on the

8

environment and human health.

20 mm min.

 

Using a wall for stabilization

1.Attach falling prevention bolts (hooks) to the Plasma Display.

2.Use strong cords or chains to stabilize it appropriately and firmly to a wall, pillar, or other sturdy element.

• Perform this work in the same way on the left and right sides.

NOTE

Use hooks, ropes, chains, and fittings that are available on the market.

Recommended hook: Nominal diameter 8 mm Length 12 to 15 mm

M8

12 to 15 mm

CAUTION

A table or an area of the floor with adequate strength should always be used to support the Plasma Display. Failure to do so could result in personal injury and physical damage.

When installing the Plasma Display, please take the necessary safety measures to prevent it from falling or overturning in case of emergencies, such as earthquakes, or of accidents.

If you do not take these precautions, the Plasma Display could fall down and cause injury.

The screws, hooks, chains and other fittings that you use to secure the Plasma Display to prevent it from overturning will vary according to the composition and thickness of the surface to which it will be attached.

Select the appropriate screws, hooks, chains, and other fittings after first inspecting the surface carefully to determine its thickness and composition and after consulting a professional installer if necessary.

Preparation

Preparing the remote control unit

Inserting batteries

1 Open the battery cover.

2Load the supplied two AA size batteries while inserting their respective negative polarity (–) ends first.

Place batteries with their terminals corresponding to the

(+) and (–) indicators in the battery compartment.

3 Close the battery cover.

Cautions regarding batteries

Improper use of batteries can result in chemical leakage or explosion. Be sure to follow the instructions below.

When you replace the batteries, use manganese or alkaline ones.

Place the batteries with their terminals corresponding to the

(+) and (–) indicators.

Do not mix batteries of different types. Different types of batteries have different characteristics.

Do not mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new batteries or cause chemical leakage in old batteries.

Remove batteries as soon as they have worn out. Chemicals that leak from batteries can cause a rash. If you find any chemical leakage, wipe thoroughly with a cloth.

The batteries supplied with this product may have a shorter life expectancy due to storage conditions.

If you will not use the remote control unit for an extended period of time, remove the batteries from it.

CAUTION

WHEN DISPOSING OF USED BATTERIES, PLEASE COMPLY WITH GOVERNMENTAL REGULATIONS OR ENVIRONMENTAL PUBLIC INSTRUCTION’S RULES THAT APPLY IN YOUR COUNTRY/AREA.

Cautions regarding the remote control unit

Do not expose the remote control unit to shock. In addition, do not expose the remote control unit to liquids, and do not place in an area with high humidity.

Do not install or place the remote control unit under direct sunlight. The heat may cause deformation of the unit.

The remote control unit may not work properly if the remote control sensor of the Plasma Display is under direct sunlight or strong lighting. In such case, change the angle of the lighting or Plasma Display, or operate the remote control unit closer to the remote control sensor.

When any obstacle exists between the remote control unit and the remote control sensor, the remote control unit may not function.

As the batteries become empty, the remote control unit can function within a shorter distance from the remote control sensor. Replace the batteries with new ones early enough.

The Plasma Display emits very weak infrared rays from its screen. If you place such equipment operated through infrared remote control as a VCR nearby, that equipment may not receive commands from its remote control unit properly or entirely. If this is the case, place that equipment at a location far enough from the Plasma Display.

Depending on the installation environment, infrared rays from the Plasma Display may not allow this system to properly receive commands from the remote control unit or may shorten allowable distances between the remote control unit and the remote control sensor. The strength of infrared rays emitted from the screen differs, depending on images displayed on the screen.
