Wrong time/no time displaying on TV.


TV display clock shows wrong time:

Current time setting can be checked by pressing “confirm” button (showing information) of remote control.

If digital broadcasting signal is received by the antenna terminals at the back of TV and the time mode is set to “auto”, the clock shows the time received from broadcasting station.

② If external device (e.g. set-top box) is connected to TV, set the time manually by selecting “user settings”.

※ If the power is turned off after setting the time (blackout , disconnecting the power cord or turning off the switch of multi-tab), current time setting is cancelled and it needs to be set again.

※ If the clock displays wrong time, scheduled recording is carried out based on this wrong time and also auto on/off is not operated.
