Function Explanation
Energy-efficient Here, you can choose from 4 settings to limit energy consumption: off, minimum, medium, and maximum. The more economically you set the television, the less bright the screen is.
Screen off When you listen to music via the television, this mode turns the screen off. This way, the TV stays on but hardly uses any energy.
Light sensor When you switch on the light sensor, a sensor measures the amount of light in the room. When it's dark, the TV consumes less energy than in a bright room.
Switch off timer After 240 minutes of use, the television switches itself off by default. If you don't want this, set the timer to 0. This is useful if you use the TV as a computer screen, for example.
