Important Information

Neutral fusing. Disconnect mains before servicing.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not remove the cover (or back). No user-serviceable parts inside.  Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.

To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this product to rain or moisture. This product should not be exposed to dripping or splashing. No objects filled with liquids, such as vases, should be placed on the apparatus.

This television is a table model and is designed to sit on a firm, flat surface. Do not place the TV on soft carpeting or a similar surface as this may cause the ventilation slots located on the bottom of the unit to be blocked and may result in reduced product lifespan from overheating. To ensure adequate ventilation for this product, maintain a spacing of one (1) inch from the top and side of the TV receiver and two (2) inches from the rear of the TV receiver and other surfaces.

Make sure the TV stand or base you use is of adequate size and strength to prevent the TV from being accidentally tipped over, pushed off, or pulled off. This may cause personal injury and/or damage to the TV. Refer to the Important Safety Instructions on the next page. The Power button on this TV and your remote control puts the TV into a very low-power standby mode but will not completely turn the power on.

To completely shut the power off, you will need to disconnect the power cord from the outlet. The mains plug/appliance coupler is used to completely turn off the device. If you prefer to completely turn off the device, you should install the TV in a manner that allows you to disconnect the power cord when desired.

Set up your TV

Never place a television set in an unstable location. A television set may fall, causing serious personal injury or death. Many injuries, particularly to children, can be avoided by taking simple precautions such as:

  • Using cabinets or stands recommended by the manufacturer of the television set.
  • Only use furniture that can safely support the television set.
  • Ensuring the television set is not overhanging the edge of the supporting furniture.
  • Not placing the television set on tall furniture (for example, cupboards or bookcases) without anchoring both the furniture and the television set to a suitable support.
  • Not placing the television set on cloth or other materials that may be located between the television set and supporting furniture.
  • Educating children about the dangers of climbing on furniture to reach the television set or its controls.

If you are mounting your TV to the wall, don’t attach the stands.

TCL 43-inch Class 4-Series 4K UHD HDR LED Smart Roku TV 9

The VESA number is the horizontal and vertical measurement of the mounting holes. For example, 200X200 refers to the fact that the mounting measurements are 200mm horizontally and 200mm vertically.  Follow the instructions that come with the wall mount. Your wall mount must be able to bear a minimum of five times the TV’s net weight to avoid causing damage.
