How can I set the timer for on/off?


 Symptom

Do you want to turn on or off automatically at certain hours?    

You can set TV for scheduled on/off.

※ In order to use this function, current time should be set.

If current time is set to “user setting” mode, reset the time after TV is turned off.

(When using set-top box, select the input mode in which set-top box is connected to TV)
