General Safety Instructions
|Risk of electric shock. DO NOT OPEN! Do not attempt to service the television yourself, as opening or removing the covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to the Kogan customer support team.|
|To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this product to rain or moisture. The television should not be exposed to dripping or splashing and no liquid filled objects such as vases should be placed on the case.|
In the event of smoke, strange noises or a strange smell from the unit, you should follow these steps:
|Never push objects of any kind into the set through the cabinet slots as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short-circuit parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill any liquids onto the set. Use special caution in households where children are present. The television is not suitable for children under 4 years old to operate.|
|Power supply cords should be routed safely to prevent dangers due to damaged cords. The mains plug is the main disconnect method, so it should be easily accessible and not be obstructed during use.|
|To avoid fires, no naked flame sources such as lit candles or burning incense should be placed onto the casing of the television.|
|Do not pull the plug out of a power outlet by pulling on the power cable. Always grasp the plug and pull. Never touch the plug with wet hands.|
|An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits, as contact with them may be fatal.|
|Always turn the set off when it is not being used. Unplug the television from the power outlet when it will not be used for a long time or when there is an electrical storm. Never touch the antenna cable during a lightning storm.|
|Excessive volume from earphones and headphones can cause permanent hearing loss. Always monitor the volume of noise from these devices, especially when children are using them.|
|Ventilation should not be impeded or limited by covering the ventilation slots with items such as newspapers, tablecloths, curtains etc. At least 10cm of space should be left around the apparatus for sufficient ventilation.|
|The television should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heaters, stoves or other products that produce heat. Place the television in a position where the screen is not exposed to direct sunlight. It is best to have soft indirect lighting while watching and you should avoid a completely dark viewing environment and reflections to avoid eye fatigue. Keep the product away from high magnetic fields (such as near an amplifier speaker) to avoid affecting the tint.|
|Do not place the television on an unstable table, stand or shelf. The set may fall, causing serious injury as well as damage to the television itself. If moving the television on a cart, move the unit with care as sudden stops and starts may cause the television to overturn.|
|Do not place this television near water, for example near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, swimming pool or in a damp basement etc.|
|When moving the television to a warm location from a cold location, allow some time for any dew or condensation inside the television to evaporate fully before you turn the unit on.|
|To prevent injury, the television must be securely attached to the floor/wall in accordance with the supplied installation instructions.|
|Unplug the television from the power supply before cleaning. Do not use any liquid cleaners or harsh chemicals. Use a soft, damp cloth.|

Connecting Your TV

For the location of each of the ports on your specific TV, please be sure to view the overview section.
Connecting Digital Television
- Your TV has an inbuilt Digital TV tuner. Connect your TV to your DTV source.
- Please note: these connections can be very secure, so if you need to disconnect the cable at any stage, please do so carefully to avoid damage to the cable and TV.
Connecting to the Internet
- The Kogan Smart TV supports either a wireless or wired connection. It is recommended that you use a wired connection for the best results.
