SECTION 1 PRECAUTION
1.1 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (1) The design of this product contains special hardware, many circuits and components specially for safety purposes. For continued protection, no changes should be made to the original design unless authorized in writing by the manufacturer. Replacement parts must be identical to those used in the original circuits. Service should be performed by qualified personnel only. (2) Alterations of the design or circuitry of the products should not be made. Any design alterations or additions will void the manufacturer's warranty and will further relieve the manufacturer of responsibility for personal injury or property damage resulting therefrom. (3) Many electrical and mechanical parts in the products have special safety-related characteristics. These characteristics are often not evident from visual inspection nor can the protection afforded by them necessarily be obtained by using replacement components rated for higher voltage, wattage, etc. Replacement parts which have these special safety characteristics are identified in the parts list of Service manual. Electrical components having such features are identified by shading on the schematics and by ( ) on the parts list in Service manual. The use of a substitute replacement which does not have the same safety characteristics as the recommended replacement part shown in the parts list of Service manual may cause shock, fire, or other hazards. (4) Don't short between the LIVE side ground and ISOLATED (NEUTRAL) side ground or EARTH side ground when repairing. Some model's power circuit is partly different in the GND. The difference of the GND is shown by the LIVE : ( ) side GND, the ISOLATED (NEUTRAL) : ( ) side GND and ) side GND. Don't short between the LIVE EARTH : ( side GND and ISOLATED (NEUTRAL) side GND or EARTH side GND and never measure the LIVE side GND and ISOLATED (NEUTRAL) side GND or EARTH side GND at the same time with a measuring apparatus (oscilloscope etc.). If above note will not be kept, a fuse or any parts will be broken. (5) If any repair has been made to the chassis, it is recommended that the B1 setting should be checked or adjusted (See ADJUSTMENT OF B1 POWER SUPPLY). (6) The high voltage applied to the picture tube must conform with that specified in Service manual. Excessive high voltage can cause an increase in X-Ray emission, arcing and possible component damage, therefore operation under excessive high voltage conditions should be kept to a minimum, or should be prevented. If severe arcing occurs, remove the AC power immediately and determine the cause by visual inspection (incorrect installation, cracked or melted high voltage harness, poor soldering, etc.). To maintain the proper minimum level of soft X-Ray emission, components in the high voltage circuitry including the picture tube must be the exact replacements or alternatives approved by the manufacturer of the complete product. (7) Do not check high voltage by drawing an arc. Use a high voltage meter or a high voltage probe with a VTVM. Discharge the picture tube before attempting meter connection, by connecting a clip lead to the ground frame and connecting the other end of the lead through a 10k 2W resistor to the anode button. (8) When service is required, observe the original lead dress. Extra precaution should be given to assure correct lead dress in the high voltage circuit area. Where a short circuit has occurred, those components that indicate evidence of overheating should be replaced. Always use the manufacturer's replacement components. (9) Isolation Check (Safety for Electrical Shock Hazard) After re-assembling the product, always perform an isolation check on the exposed metal parts of the cabinet (antenna terminals, video/audio input and output terminals, Control knobs, metal cabinet, screw heads, earphone jack, control shafts, etc.) to be sure the product is safe to operate without danger of electrical shock. a) Dielectric Strength Test The isolation between the AC primary circuit and all metal parts exposed to the user, particularly any exposed metal part having a return path to the chassis should withstand a voltage of 3000V AC (r.m.s.) for a period of one second. (. . . . Withstand a voltage of 1100V AC (r.m.s.) to an appliance rated up to 120V, and 3000V AC (r.m.s.) to an appliance rated 200V or more, for a period of one second.) This method of test requires a test equipment not generally found in the service trade. b) Leakage Current Check Plug the AC line cord directly into the AC outlet (do not use a line isolation transformer during this check.). Using a "Leakage Current Tester", measure the leakage current from each exposed metal part of the cabinet, particularly any exposed metal part having a return path to the chassis, to a known good earth ground (water pipe, etc.). Any leakage current must not exceed 0.5mA AC (r.m.s.). However, in tropical area, this must not exceed 0.2mA AC (r.m.s.). Alternate Check Method Plug the AC line cord directly into the AC outlet (do not use a line isolation transformer during this check.). Use an AC voltmeter having 1000 ohms per volt or more sensitivity in the following manner. Connect a 1500 10W resistor paralleled by a 0.15F AC-type capacitor between an exposed metal part and a known good earth ground (water pipe, etc.). Measure the AC voltage across the resistor with the AC voltmeter. Move the resistor connection to each exposed metal part, particularly any exposed metal part having a return path to the chassis, and measure the AC voltage across the resistor. Now, reverse the plug in the AC outlet and repeat each measurement. Any voltage measured must not exceed 0.75V AC (r.m.s.). This corresponds to 0.5mA AC (r.m.s.). However, in tropical area, this must not exceed 0.3V AC (r.m.s.). This corresponds to 0.2mA AC (r.m.s.).

1.2 INSTALLATION 1.2.1 HEAT DISSIPATION If the heat dissipation vent behind this unit is blocked, cooling efficiency may deteriorate and temperature inside the unit will rise. Therefore, please make sure pay attention not to block the heat dissipation vent as well as the ventilation outlet behind the unit and ensure that there is room for ventilation around it. 1.2.2 INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS Ensure that the minimal distance is maintained, as specified below, between the unit with and the surrounding walls. Install the unit on stable flooring or stands. Take precautionary measures to prevent the unit from tipping in order to protect against accidents and earthquakes. Distance recommendations Avoid improper installation and never position the unit where good ventilation is impossible. When installing this TV, distance recommendations must be maintained between the set and the wall, as well as inside a tightly enclosed area or piece of furniture. Keep to the minimum distance guidelines shown for safe operation.

1.3 PRECAUTIONS (1) Depending on the around temperature, the brightness leaning occurs. Be careful of the environment in the product installation place and so on sufficiently. (2) Don't hinder radiation from the back, the heaven and the side. Please refer to the next page that explains about the condition of the installation. The inside becomes hot if hindering radiation and there is fear, which the inner circuit damages. (3) Install in the place with good ventilation. Use in the condition that around temperature is in the 0~35C range. (4) Avoid preservation and use at the high temperature or high humidity place. If you behave like this, leaning sometimes happens in the screen when the set actives. (5) Depending on the condition and the environment of display, the slight fleck of the light and leaning of the screen and so on is sometimes conspicuous. This is the characteristic which is peculiar to liquid crystal display. It is not set trouble. (6) This monitor has cool cathode pipe as the backlight. The time change and the use time sometimes change brightness and condition of display.

1.4 THE ATTENTION IN TRANSPORTATION When transporting a set, if the load handling is bad (throwing, falling and so on) however it is using a solid box, pressure inside liquid crystal display. In the case there is fear to break the liquid crystal display while transporting. To prevent from the accident or trouble while transporting, pay attention to choice of the transportation company sufficiently and also arrange for it in the delivery after the attention of the load handling is explained to the transportation company. This set is used glass for composing liquid crystal display. When carrying, pay attention not to add over vibration and impact sufficiently. Ensure that it is placed upright and not horizontally during transportation and storage as the LCD panel is very vulnerable to lateral impacts and may break. During transportation, ensure that the unit is loaded along the traveling direction of the vehicle, and avoid stacking them on one another. For storage, ensure that they are stacked in 2 layers or less even when placed upright.

SECTION 2 SPECIFIC SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS
2.1 DESCRIPTION ABOUT LIQUID CRYSTAL PANEL 2.2.1 STRUCTURE OF LIGUID CRYSTAL PANEL The Liquid Crystal Panel of this model is TFT Panel. The Print circuit board that consist of TFT array and the print circuit board adopted stripe shaped image element alignment are used. These two boards are mixed. The Liquid crystal is enclosed between two boards. 2.1.2 LONG RANGE AFTERIMAGE OF LIQUID CRYSTAL The small amount of ion material has mixed a liquid crystal panel with the liquid crystal material in the manufacturing process. If ion material is piled up partially among the poles when the voltage is impressed among the poles, the brightness difference occurs and becomes a long-range afterimage If same picture is reflected for long time, such a long-range afterimage occurs. If the long-range afterimage occurs, we recommend that you reflect the single color image or moving picture and so on to restore. 2.1.3 THE DISPLAY REPLYING SPEED OF LIQUID CRYSTAL Because the speed to display of Liquid crystal panel is slower than the speed of the CRT monitor, some of the moving picture cannot overtake to the speed to display and the image looks flowing is sometimes displayed. This is not trouble, but efficiency of Liquid Crystal. 2.1.4 THE EYESIGHT CORNER OF LIQUID CRYSTAL The liquid crystal panel has the wide eyesight corner for which it is difficult to reverse brightness. The tint changes depending on the direction to see a screen. This is not trouble, but efficiency of Liquid Crystal. 2.1.5 THE PICTURE ELEMENT FAULT OF LIQUID CRYSTAL The liquid crystal panel is composed of precise technique but all devices don't always work right.

2.2 ATTENTION ITEMS WHEN REPLACING PARTS 2.2.1 ATTENTION TO EXCHANGE THE LIQUID CRYSTAL PANEL (1) The stillness electricity sometimes makes damage a liquid crystal panel. In liquid crystal panel exchange, do a measure of the stillness electricity such as the earth band. (2) A liquid crystal panel and back-light are made from glass. If you gain an impact to these materials, there is fear to damage. So in case of treatment, be careful sufficiently. (3) Fix with the screw after confirming that there is not a float to chassis base when exchanging liquid crystal panel. After that reflect all the black signals and confirm that brightness leaning doesn't occur near the screw fixation part. When brightness leaning occurs, slacken a screw in the neighborhood until the brightness leaning is running-out. (4) Fix the torque that installs a screw below 0.294Nm. If you install at any more torque, the liquid crystal panel is transformed and sometimes damages. (5) If you pull out or insert each connector when power is ON, it causes the trouble. So pull out or insert each connector in the condition to have pulled out a power supply plug. 2.2.2 ATTENTION WHEN EXCHANGING THE FUSE When exchanging the fuse, please use specified parts. After fuse exchange, confirm that insulater is set to the shield and insulate surely.

Troubleshooting
If a problem arises while you are using the TV, please read this troubleshooting guide carefully before you ask to have the TV repaired. You may be able to fix it easily by yourself. For example, if the mains plug is disconnected from the mains outlet, or the TV aerial has problems, you may think there is a problem with the TV itself. Important: This troubleshooting guide only covers problems whose causes are not easy to decide. If you have a question when you are operating a function, read the page(s) for that function carefully, not this troubleshooting guide. If you follow the advice in this troubleshooting guide without any success, unplug the mains plug and ask for your TV to be repaired. Do not attempt to repair the TV by yourself or to remove the rear cover of the TV.

If you cannot turn on the TV
Are the AC plug on the power cord from the TV is connected to AC outlet? Make sure to set the VCR/TV/DVD switch to the TV position. You cannot turn the TV on when the VCR/TV/ DVD switch is set to the VCR or DVD position.

Poor sound
Have you adjusted BASS or TREBLE properly? If not, follow the description "Sound Adjustment" on page 1.

ENGLISH

If the TV does not respond to the remote control
Have the batteries of the remote control worn out? Follow the description "Putting the batteries into the Remote control" on page 5 and replace them with new batteries. Have you attempted to use the remote control from the sides or rear of the TV or from more than seven metres away from the TV? Use the remote control in the front of your TV or from less than seven metres away. When you are viewing a teletext programme, you cannot operate the menus. Press the button to return to the ordinary TV programme, and then try operating the menus. If the TV suddenly stops responding, disconnect the power cord of the TV from the AC outlet. Connect them to the AC outlet again to turn on the TV. If the TV returns to a normal state, it is not a failure.

If you cannot turn off the TV
Make sure to set the VCR/TV/DVD switch to the TV position. You cannot turn the TV off when the VCR/TV/ DVD switch is set to the VCR or DVD position.

No picture or no sound
Have you chosen a TV channel with very poor reception? If so, the BLUE BACK function will be activated: the entire screen becomes blue, and the sound is muted. If you still want to view the TV channel, follow the description "BLUE BACK" on page 20 to change the BLUE BACK function setting to OFF. If the SOUND SYSTEM setting for a tTV channel is incorrect, it may prevent the sound from being issued. Follow the description "INSTALL" on page 21 to use the MANUAL function to try to change the SOUND SYSTEM setting.

Poor picture
If noise (snow) totally blocks out the picture, there may be a problem with the aerial or aerial cable. Check the following to try to solve the problem: Have the TV and aerial been connected properly? Has the aerial cable been damaged? Is the aerial pointing in the right direction? Is the aerial itself faulty? If the TV or aerial suffers interference from other equipment, stripes or noise may appear in the picture. Move any equipment such as an amplifier, personal computer, or a hair drier, that can cause interference away from your TV. Or try moving the TV. If the aerial suffers interference from a radio tower or high-voltage wire, please contact your local dealer. If the TV suffers interference from signals reflecting from mountains or buildings, double-pictures (ghosting) will occur. Try to change the aerial's direction or replace it with one with better directionality. Have the COLOUR and BRIGHT settings been adjusted properly? Follow the description "Picture Adjustment" on page 18 to try to adjust them properly. Videotaping teletext is not recommended because it may not record correctly. When viewing images from commercially available video software products, or videos from videotapes which have been recorded improperly, the top of the image may be distorted. This is due to the condition of the video signal. There is nothing wrong with the TV.

29

Troubleshooting

Other concerns
When the SLEEP TIMER function operates, the TV is automatically turned off. If the TV suddenly turns off, try to press the (standby) button to turn on the TV once again. If the TV goes back to normal, there is no problem. When the TV is receiving a wide-screen signal (WSS) or a signal from an external device affecting the screen size, the ZOOM mode automatically changes. When you want to resume the previous ZOOM mode, press the ZOOM button again. It takes a short period of time from the time an operation such as changing channels is performed until an image is displayed. This is not a malfunction. This is the time required for the image to stabilize before it can be displayed. The TV may make a crackling sound due to a sudden change in temperature. The picture or sound may be normal. If you hear crackling sounds frequently while you are viewing the TV, there may be other causes. As a precaution, ask your service technician to inspect it. In the twin pictures mode the sub-picture may disappear when the external device is operated. If this happens, press the button and display the sub-picture again. The headphone volume is adjusted with the "HEADPHONE" menu. It cannot be adjusted with the (volume) buttons. The top of the TV and the screen may become hot during use but this has no affect on the performance of the TV. Ensure that the ventilation holes are not blocked. When the picture is unstable, the screen may become white for a moment. This occurs when the signal which drives the liquid crystal is missing. This is not a malfunction. When a still image has been displayed for a long period, a faint residual image may remain on the screen for a short time after the power has bee
