Precautions When Displaying a Still Image
A still image may cause permanent damage to the TV screen.
• Digital Ready TV: When you
select the regular screen (4:3)
mode to watch an SD-grade
digital broadcast (and the Set-Top
Box output is 480p).
Although digital broadcasting must be in the
wide screen (16:9) HD format, broadcasters
sometimes show programs made originally
in the regular screen format (4:3) by
converting the signals into digital form, in
which case the left and right side edges of
the screen are cropped.
Do not leave the screen in pause mode for
extended periods of time as you may
experience temporary or permanent image
burn.
Note : If the borders at the left, right and the
center of the screen remain fixed for
an extended period of time, the
amount of light transmission will also
remain varied and as a result the
borders may leave traces.
• Digital Ready TV: When you
select the wide screen (16:9)
mode to watch an SD-grade
digital broadcast (and the Set-Top
Box output is 1080i).
• Digital Ready TV: When the
TV receives HD-grade signals
(and the Set-Top Box output is 1080i).
When you watch a digital HD-grade
broadcast on a regular (4:3) TV with the
screen size "16:9" or "Panorama" selected,
you will be able to watch the program but the
top and bottom edges of the screen will be
cropped.
Do not leave the screen in pause mode for
extended periods of time as you may
experience temporary or permanent image
burn.
Note : If the borders at the top, bottom and
the center of the screen remain fixed
for an extended period of time, the
amount of light transmission will also
remain varied and as a result the
borders may leave traces.

Do not leave the screen in pause mode for
extended periods of time as you may
experience temporary or permanent image
burn.
Note : If the borders at the left, right and the
center of the screen remain fixed for

Viewing the Connection Panel
Connecting HDMI/DVI
- Supports connections between HDMI-connection-enabled AV devices (Set-Top Boxes, DVD players,
AV receivers and digital TVs).
- No sound connection is needed for an HDMI to HDMI connection.
What is HDMI?
- HDMI, or high-definition multimedia interface, is a next-generation interface that enables the
transmission of digital audio and video signals using a single cable without compression.
- “Multimedia interface” is a more accurate name for it especially because it allows multiple channels of
digital audio (5.1 channels).The difference between HDMI and DVI is that the HDMI device is smaller
in size, has the HDCP (High Bandwidth Digital Copy Protection) coding feature installed, and
supports multi - channel digital audio.
- Use the HDMI/DVI terminal for DVI connection to an extended device.
You should use the DVI-to-HDMI cable or DVI-HDMI Adapter for the connection, and the
“R - AUDIO - L” terminal on DVI for sound output.
Connecting Computer
- Connect the D- Sub cable to “PC (PC IN)” on the rear of your set and the other end to the Video Card of
your computer.
- Connect the stereo audio cable to “AUDIO (PC IN)” on the rear of your set and the other end to
“Audio Out” of the sound card on your computer.
Connecting AUDIO
- Connect RCA audio cables to “R - AUDIO - L” on the rear of your set and the other ends to corresponding
audio in connectors on the Amplifier or DVD Home Theater.
Kensington Lock
- Refer to “Using the Anti-Theft Kensington Lock” on page 63.
- The place of the Kensington Lock may be different depending on its model.
