Securing the monitor to a wall (optional)
(Depending on model)

LG 55VH7J 55 Inch 700 nits FHD Slim Bezel Video Wall - Wall Mount Holder 2

  1. Insert and tighten the eyebolts, or brackets and bolts on the back of the monitor.
    – If there are already bolts inserted in the eyebolts’ position, remove the other bolts first.
  2. Mount the wall brackets with the bolts to the wall. Match the location of the wall bracket and the eyebolts on the rear of the monitor.
  3. Connect the eyebolts and wall brackets tightly with a sturdy cord. Make sure the securing cord is horizontal with the flat surface.

WARNING

  • If the monitor is not positioned in a sufficiently stable location, there is a danger that it will fall. Many injuries, particularly to children, can be avoided by taking simple precautions such as:
    • Only using furniture that can safely support the monitor.
    • Ensuring the monitor is not overhanging the edge of the supporting furniture.
    • Not placing the monitor on tall furniture (for example, cupboards or bookcases) without anchoring both the furniture and the monitor to a suitable support.
    • Not placing cloth or other materials between the monitor and supporting furniture.
    • Educating children about the dangers of climbing on furniture to reach the monitor or its controls.

CAUTION

  • Make sure that children do not climb on or hang from the monitor.

NOTE

  • Use a platform or cabinet that is large and strong enough to support the monitor securely.
  • Brackets, bolts, and cords are sold separately. You can obtain additional accessories from your local retail store.
  • The illustration shows a general example of installation and may look different from the actual product.

CAUTION

  • Make sure to level the sets before tightening the tiling guide; doing so when the set axis is rotated may cause damage to the panel.

NOTE

  • The load applied to each set should be supported by the wall mount plate or the wall using a VESA wall mount (600 x 400).
  • The load applied to each set should be supported by the wall mount plate using a VESA wall mount. (Each set must be firmly mounted to the wall mount plate or the wall.)
  • You may mount the set without using the tiling guide; this does not affect the performance of the device.
  • The screws are enclosed with the other components in the box, including the tiling guides.

PRECAUTIONS FOR USE

Dust

The warranty will not cover any damage caused by using the product in an excessively dusty environment.

Afterimage
  • After-image appears when the product is turned off.
    • Pixels may be damaged rapidly if a still image is displayed on the screen for a long period of time. Use the screensaver function.
    • Switching from a screen with high differences in luminance (black and white or grey) to a darker screen may cause an afterimage. This is normal due to the display characteristics of this product.
  • When the LCD screen is in a still pattern for extended periods of use, a slight voltage difference may occur between the electrodes that operate the liquid crystal (LC). The voltage difference between the electrodes increases over time and tends to keep the liquid crystal aligned in one direction. At this time, the previous image remains, which is called an afterimage.
  • Afterimages do not occur when continuously changing images are used but take place when a certain screen is fixed for a long time. The following are operational recommendations for reducing the occurrence of afterimages when using a fixed screen. The maximum recommended time for switching the screen is 12 hours. Shorter cycles are better for preventing afterimages.
  • Recommended Usage Condition
  1. Change the background colour and text colour at equal intervals.
    • Afterimages occur less when the colours to be changed are complementary to one another.
    LG 55VH7J 55 Inch 700 nits FHD Slim Bezel Video Wall - PRECAUTIONS FOR USE
  2. Switch the screen at equal time intervals.
    • Take caution, and ensure that text or images from before the screen change are not left in the same location after the screen change.
