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 the same problem with products
by other manufacturers.
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 the same problem with products
by other manufacturers.
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.

• Integrated Digital TV
(Wide-screen): When the TV
receives SD-grade (regular)

• When you watch an analogue
(regular) broadcast on a
wide-screen TV (with the 4:3 screen

the screen are cropped.
Do not leave the screen in pause mode for
extended periods of time as you may

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

• When you watch a DVD, CD or a
video in wide screen (21:9) format
on a wide-screen (16:9) TV.
• When you connect a computer or a
game console to the TV and select
the 4:3 screen mode.
If you connect a DVD player, computer or a
game console to the wide-screen TV and
watch a movie or play a game in regular
(4:3) or wide (21:9) screen mode, the left
and right side edges, or 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 the same problem with products
by other manufacturers.
Note: If the borders at the left, right and the
center of the screen remain fixed for
an extended period of time, the
