When using the plasma display
Do not bring your hands, face or objects close to the ventilation holes of the plasma display.
Top of the plasma display is usually very hot due to the high temperature of exhaust air being released through the
ventilation holes. Burns or personal injuries can happen if any body parts are brought too close. Placing any object
near the top of the display could also result in heat damages to the object as well as to the Display if its ventilation
holes are blocked.
Be sure to disconnect all cables before moving the plasma display.
Moving the Display with its cables attached might damage the cables which, in turn, can cause fire or electric shock.
Disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet as a safety precaution before carrying out any cleaning.
Electric shocks can result if this is not done.
Clean the power cable regularly to prevent it from becoming dusty.
Built-up dust on the power cord plug can increase humidity which might damage the insulation and cause fire. Unplug
the cord from the wall outlet and clean it with a dry cloth.
Cleaning and maintenance

cloth or a soft, lint-free cloth.
If the surface is particularly dirty, soak a soft, lint-free cloth in a weak detergent solution and then wring the cloth to
remove excess liquid. Use this cloth to wipe the surface of the display panel, then wipe it evenly with a dry cloth, of the
same type, until the surface is dry.
Do not scratch or hit the surface of the panel with fingernails or other hard objects. Furthermore, avoid contact with
volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents and thinner, otherwise the quality of the surface may be adversely
