Safety Instructions: Dell W1700 LCD TV User's Guide

Caution: Use of controls, adjustments, or procedures other than those specified in this documentation may result in exposure to shock, electrical hazards, and/or mechanical hazards.

Read and follow these instructions when connecting and using your LCD TV:"

To help avoid damaging your computer, be sure that the voltage selection switch on the power supply for the computer is set to match the alternating current (AC) power available at your location:

115 volts (V)/60 hertz (Hz) in most of North and South America and some Far Eastern countries such as Japan, South Korea (also 220 volts (V)/60 hertz (Hz)), and Taiwan. 230 volts (V)/50 hertz (Hz) in most of Europe, the Middle East, and the Far East.

Always be sure that your LCD TV is electrically rated to operate with the AC power available in your location.

Note: This LCD TV does not need or have a voltage selection switch for setting the AC voltage according to the ranges defined in the Electrical for PC section in the Specifications page.

Never insert anything metallic into the LCD TV openings. Doing so may create the danger of electric shock. To avoid electric shock, never touch the inside of the LCD TV. Only a qualified technician should open the LCD TV case. Never use your LCD TV if the power cable has been damaged. Do not allow anything to rest on the power cable. Keep the power cable away from where people could trip over it. Be sure to grasp the plug, not the cable, when disconnecting the LCD TV from an electric socket. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two blades and third grounding prong. The wide blade or third prong are provided for your safety. When the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet. Openings in the LCD TV cabinet are provided for ventilation. To prevent overheating, these openings should not be blocked or covered. Avoid using the LCD TV on a bed, sofa, rug, or other soft surface, as doing so may block the ventilation openings in the bottom of the cabinet. If you place the LCD TV in a bookcase or an enclosed space, be sure to provide adequate ventilation and air flow. Place your LCD TV in a location with low humidity and minimum dust. Avoid places similar to a damp basement or dusty hallway. Do not expose the LCD TV to rain or use it near water (in kitchens, next to swimming pools, etc.). If the LCD TV accidentally gets wet, unplug it and contact Dell immediately. You can clean the LCD TV with a damp cloth when necessary, being sure to unplug the LCD TV first. Place the LCD TV on a solid surface and treat it carefully. The screen is made of glass and can be damaged if dropped or hit sharply. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table capable to adequately support your LCD TV. When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/ LCD TV combination to avoid injury from tip-over. Contact Dell for mounting accessories.

Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time. Locate your LCD TV near an easily accessible electric outlet. If your LCD TV does not operate normally - in particular, if there are any unusual sounds or smells coming from it - unplug it immediately and contact Dell. Do not attempt to remove the back cover, as you will be exposed to an electrical shock hazard. The back cover should only be removed by qualified service personnel. High temperatures can cause problems. Don't use your LCD TV in direct sunlight, and keep it away from heaters, stoves, fireplaces, and other sources of heat. Unplug your LCD TV from the electric outlet before any service is performed. Damage Requiring Service- The appliance should be serviced by qualified service personnel when:

A. The power supply cord or the plug has been damaged;or B. Objects have fallen, or liquid has been spilled into the appliance;or C. The appliance has been exposed to rain;or D. The appliance does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change in performance;or E. The appliance has been dropped, or the enclosure damaged. Tilt/Stability-All televisions must comply with recommended international global safety standards for tilt and stability properties of its cabinets design.

Do not compromise these design standards by applying excessive pull force to the front, or top of the cabinet which could ultimately overturn the product. Do not place electronic equipment/toys on the top of the set. As such items could unsuspectingly fall from the top of the set and cause product damage and/or personal injury. Wall or Ceiling Mounting-The LCD TV should be mounted to a wall or ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer. Power Lines-An outdoor antenna should be located away from power lines. Outdoor Antenna Grounding-If an outside antenna is connected to the receiver, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built up static charges. Section 810 of the National Electric Code. ANSI/NFPA No.70-1984, provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mats and supporting structure grounding of the lead-in wire to and antenna-discharge unit, size of grounding connectors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes and requirements for the grounding electrode. See Figure below. Refer to limited warranty section of your user guide for service of your LCD TV. Servicing is required when the LCD TV has been damaged in any way, such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into LCD TV the LCD TV has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped.

Note to the CATV system installer: This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer's attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system fo the building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.

TV and Audio Problems

COMMON SYMPTOMS WHAT YOU EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS

Poor TV signal reception

Abnormal picture seen from the screen

The proximity of mountains or high buildings may be responsible for ghost pictures, echoing or shadows. In this case, try manually adjusting your pictures: see 'fine tuning' or adjust the direction of the outside aerial. For Asia users in non-NTSC area: Does your antenna enable you to receive broadcasts in this frequency range (UHF or VHF band)? In the event of difficult reception (snowy pictures) switch the NR on the PICTURE menu to ON.

No TV picture No picture when TV input was selected

Have you connected the aerial socket properly? Have you chosen the right system? Poorly connected SCART cables or aerial sockets are often the cause of picture or sound problems (sometimes the connectors can become half disconnected if the LCD TV set is moved or turned). Check all connections.

No sound No sound output when a program with sound was playing

Ensure that the audio cables are firmly connected to both the audio input connectors on your LCD TV and audio output connectors on your PC or Video player. If on certain TV channels you receive a picture but no sound, this means that you do not have the correct TV system. Modify the SYSTEM setting.

TCO

Congratulations!

You have just purchased a TCO'99 approved and labeled product! Your choice has provided you with a product developed for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to reducing the burden on the environment and also to the further development of environmentally adapted electronics products.

Why do we have environmentally labeled computers?

In many countries, environmental labeling has become an established method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and services to the environment. The main problem, as far as computers and other electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful substances are used both in the products and during their manufacture. Since it is not so far possible to satisfactorily recycle the majority of electronics equipment, most of these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter nature.

There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of both the work (internal) and natural (external) environments. Since all methods of electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (e.g. acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste), it is vital to save energy. Electronics equipment in offices is often left running continuously and thereby consumes a lot of energy.

What does labeling involve?

This product meets the requirements for the TCO'99 scheme which provides for international and environmental labeling of personal computers. The labeling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), Svenska Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and Statens Energimyndighet (The Swedish National Energy Administration).

Approval requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission of electric and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety.

The environmental demands impose restrictions on the presence and use of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other things. The product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental policy which must be adhered to in each country where the company implements its operational policy.

The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its power consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for the user.

Labeled products must meet strict environmental demands, for example, in respect of the reduction of electric and magnetic fields, physical and visual ergonomics and good usability.

Below you will find a brief summary of the environmental requirements met by this product. The complete environmental criteria document may be ordered from:

TCO Development

SE-114 94 Stockholm, Sweden

Current information regarding TCO'99 approved and labeled products may also be obtained via the Internet, using the address: http://www.tco-info.com/

Environmental requirements

Flame retardants

Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and housings. Their purpose is to prevent, or at least to delay the spread of fire. Up to 30% of the plastic in a computer casing can consist of flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain bromine or chloride, and those flame retardants are chemically related to another group of environmental toxins, PCBs. Both the flame retardants containing bromine or chloride and the PCBs are suspected of giving rise to severe health effects, including reproductive damage in fish-eating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative*

processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in foetus development may occur.

The relevant TCO'99 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not contain flame retardants with organically bound bromine or chlorine. Flame retardants are allowed in the printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available.

Cadmium**

Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the colour-generating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that batteries, the colour- generating layers of display screens and the electrical or electronics components must not contain any cadmium.

Mercury**

Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. It damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that batteries may not contain any mercury. It also demands that mercury is not present in any of the electrical or electronics components associated with the labelled unit. There is however one exception. Mercury is, for the time being, permitted in the back light system of flat panel monitors as there today is no commercially available alternative. TCO aims on removing this exception when a mercury free alternative is available.

CFCs (freons)

The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the manufacture and assembly of the product. CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards. CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on earth of ultraviolet light with e.g. increased risks of skin cancer (malignant melanoma) as a consequence.

Lead**

Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and capacitors. Lead damages the nervous system and in higher doses, causes lead poisoning. The relevant TCO'99 requirement permits the inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet been developed.

* Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms

** Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are Bio-accumulative.

Energy Efficiency The proper operation of the function requires a computer with VESA DPMS power management capabilities. When used with a computer equipped with VESA DPMS, the monitor is ENERGY STAR-compliant. As an ENERGY STAR Partner, Dell Computer Corporation has determined that this product meets the ENERGY STAR guidelines for energy efficiency.

This refund will not include any shipping and handling charges shown on your packing slip or invoice; you are responsible for those. To return products, you must call Dell Customer Service at 1-800-387-5759 to receive a Credit Return Authorization Number. You must ship the Dell Software and Peripherals products back to Dell in their original manufacturer's packaging (which must be in as-new condition), prepay shipping charges, and insure the shipment or accept the risk of loss or damage during shipment. To qualify for refund or replacement, returned products must be in as-new condition, software products must be unopened, and all of the manuals, floppy disk(s), CD(s), power cables, and other items included with a product must be returned with it.

Cable TV

1. If your Cable TV signal is a single, round cable (75 ohm), then you're ready to connect to the TV. Connect the TV cable to the ANTENNA/CABLE plug on the TV.

2. If you have a cable converter box, connect the cable TV signal to the IN (put) plug on the converter, connect the OUT(put) plug from the converter to the 75 (ohm) plug on the TV.

3. Verify that the On Screen Display (OSD) is set to Cable.

Note: The connecting cable for the converter is supplied by the Cable TV company.

Antenna

1. If your antenna has a round cable (75 ohm) on the end, then you're ready to connect it to the TV. If your antenna has flat, twin-lead wire (300 ohm), you first need to attach the antenna wires to the screws on a 300 -to 75- ohm adapter.

2. Push the round end of the adapter (or antenna) onto the 75 (ohm) plug on the back of the TV. If the round end of the antenna wire is threaded, screw it down finger tight.

3. Verify that the On Screen Display (OSD) is set to Antenna.
