No. Items Notes
Buzzing sound from Plasma
display panel.
A buzzing sound may be heard when the plasma television is turned on in a very quiet
room. This is due to the plasma panel drive circuit when it is functioning. The buzzing
sound is normal and is not a malfunction.
Infrared interference
Some infrared rays are emitted from the plasma television panel that might affect the
operation of other infrared controlling equipment.
3 Bright and dark spots
High precision technology is used to manufacture the plasma television. But there
maybe points that do not illuminate, points that are too bright, and points with color
different from that of the periphery. Please note that this is not a ma lfunction.
Picture Image
In some cases, residual images may remain after the short term display of still images
when the picture changes.
Display panel surface
temperature is too high.
The plasma display panel display images by means of electrical discharges inside the
panel. This may cause the temperature of the panel surface to increase. Please note that
this is not a malfunction.
Plasma Surface
A reinforced glass filter is installed over the plasma panel surface. A strong impact to
the front panel risk a danger of glass breakage.
Please transport the plasma television in it's packing box and placed in an upright
position. Do not transport the plasma television in a horizontal position. This increases
the posibility of panel breakage and pixel failure.
