What you need to know to protect your TV when there is a lightning forecast.

Lightning and damage information

During lightning storms, accidents can occur, such as electric shock or damage to the TV. This is known as a direct hit . When lightning strikes around an area with voltage, it is known as an indirect strike . These abnormal electrical currents and voltages can be transmitted to the TV through an electrical outlet or antenna cable and destroy the inside of the TV.

If it starts to thunder

Lightning often causes high current and high voltage flows. Since there is a risk of electric shock, it is recommended that you do not touch the antenna cables or electrical outlets from the moment it begins to thunder.

If a lightning storm is expected

Turn off the TV and unplug the power cord (electrical cord).
If you are recording on the external USB hard disk (HDD), please stop the recording first.
As long as the power cord (power cord) is disconnected, the program guide will not be updated.
