To avoid possible damage or electric shocks or exposure to radiation, follow the instructions below with regard to safety, instal-
lation, service and ESD.
1-1 Safety Precautions
Make sure all protective devices are properly installed
including non-metallic handles and compartment covers
when installing or re-installing the chassis or chassis
5. Warning for Engineering Changes:
Never make any changes or additions to the circuit
design or the internal part for this product.
Ex: Do not add any audio or video accessory
connectors. This might cause physical damage.
Furthermore, any changes or additions to the original
design/engineering will invalidate the warranty.
Make sure that no gaps exist between the cabinets for
children to insert their fingers in to prevent children from
receiving electric shocks. Gaps mentioned above include
ventilation holes between the PDP module and the cabi-
net mask, and the improper installation of the rear cabi-
6. Warning - Hot Chassis:
Some TV chassis are directly connected to one end of
the AC power cord for electrical reasons.
Without insulated transformers, the product can only be
repaired safely when the chassis is connected to the
earth end of the AC power source.
Errors may occur when the resistance is below 1.0 ꢀor
over 5.2 ꢀ.
In these cases, make sure that the device is repaired
before sending it back to the customer.
To make sure the AC power cord is properly connected,
follow the instructions below. Use the voltmeter to
measure the voltage between the chassis and the
earth ground. If the measurement is over 1.0V, unplug
the AC power cord and change the polarity before re-
inserting it. Measure the voltage between the chassis
and the ground again.
Check for Electricity Leakage (Figure 1-1)
Warning: Do not use an insulated transformer for check-
ing the leakage. Use only those current leakage testers
or mirroring systems that comply with ANSIC 101.1 and
the Underwriter Laboratory's specifications (UL1410,
Some TV chassis are shipped with an additional sec-
ondary grounding system. The secondary system is
adjacent to the AC power line. These two grounding
systems are separated in the circuit using an unbreak-
able/unchangeable insulation material.
NOT BE ABOVE

damaged, replace them with new immediately. When
any damage or overheating is detected, correct this
immediately and make a regular check of possible

. Check for the original shape of the lead, especially that
of the antenna wiring, any sharp edges, the AC power
and the high voltage power. Carefully check if the wiring
is too tight, incorrectly placed or loose. Never change the
space between the part and the printed circuit board.
Check the AC power cord for possible damages. Keep
the part or the lead away from any heat-emitting
