• Do not compromise these design standards by applying excessive pull force to the front, or top, of the cabinet which could ultimately overturn the product.
• Also, do not endanger yourself, or children, by placing electronic equipment/toys on the top of the cabinet. Such items could
unsuspectingly fall from the top of the set and cause product damage and/or personal injury.
Wall or Ceiling Mounting - The appliance should be mounted to
a wall or ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer.
Power Lines - An outdoor antenna should be located away from

Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna is connected to the receiver, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to
provide some protection against voltage surges and built up static
charges.
Section 810 of the National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 701984, provides information with respect to proper grounding of
the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to
an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding connectors, location
of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode. See Figure below.
Object and Liquid Entry - Care should be taken so that objects
do not fall and liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through
openings.
22. Battery Usage CAUTION - To prevent battery leakage that may
result in bodily injury, property damage, or damage to the unit:
• Install all batteries correctly, with + and - aligned as marked on
the unit.
• Do not mix batteries (old and new or carbon and alkaline, etc.).
• Remove batteries when the unit is not used for a long time.
Note to the CATV system installer: This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer's attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC
that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the
building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.

you press the Channel (+) or (–) buttons on your remote control.
Your product also uses batteries that should not be thrown
away when depleted, but should be handed in and disposed of
as small chemical waste.

When you replace your existing equipment, please find out
about the local regulations regarding disposal of your old television, batteries, and packing materials.

UNDERSTANDING
T
he AutoLock™ feature receives and
processes data sent by broadcasters or
other program providers that contain program content advisories. When programmed
by the viewer, a TV with AutoLock™ can
respond to the content advisories and block
program content that may be found objectionable (such as offensive language, violence,
sexual situations, etc.). This is a great feature
to censor the type of programming children
may watch.
In the AutoLock™ section, you’ll learn how
to block channels and programming that is
not rated, is unrated, or has no rating. You
will also find out how to turn these blocking
features ON or OFF. Following are brief
explanations of some terms and ratings related to the AutoLock™ feature.
AutoLock™ offers various Blocking
Options from which to choose:
BLOCKING: The BLOCKING control is
what can be thought of as the “master switch”
for AutoLock™. This control affects the settings you have chosen for blocking programs
according to movie ratings or TV ratings, or
for blocking programs that have no rating or
are unrated. When the BLOCKING control is
OFF, the blocking or censoring of programs is
disabled. When the BLOCKING control is
ON, blocking will occur according to the settings you have chosen.
NO RATING: ALL programming with no
content advisory data can be blocked if NO
RATING is set to ON.
Programming that has No Rating is not
encoded with any rating information from the
MPAA or the Parental Guidelines. Any programming could fall into this category.
You also can block individual channels or
block programming based on ratings of the
MPAA and TV broadcasters. (See a description of the ratings on this page.)

TV Displays white lines in letterbox when viewing a
DVD disc
• Some DVD Discs are encoded with as much as 30% more
video information to give the best possible picture quality.
With the DVD Player in the 16:9 picture format, the playback of this type of disc with extra video information, can
produce a number of small white lines in the upper portion
of the black letterbox area. With some of these discs, this situation is unavoidable and it does not require a service call.
Remote Does Not Work
• Check the batteries. If necessary, replace them with AA
Heavy Duty (Zinc Chloride) or Alkaline batteries.
CARE
AND
WARNING Concerning Stationary Images on the TV
Screen:
Do not leave stationary or letterbox images on screen
for extended periods of time. This can cause uneven
picture-tube aging.
Normal use of the TV should involve the showing of pictures
that contain constantly moving and changing images that fill the
screen. Be careful not to leave nonmoving images on screen for
extended periods of time, or to display the same images on
screen too frequently, because subtle ghost images can be left
on the picture tubes. Sources of stationary images may be DVD
disks, laser disks, video games, CD-i disks, videotapes, digital
television boxes, broadcast channels, cable channels, satellite
channels, and others. Here are some examples of stationary
images (this is not an all-inclusive list; you may encounter
others in your viewing):
• DVD menus—listings of DVD disk content
• Letterbox black bars—shown at the top and bottom of the
TV screen when a wide screen (16:9) movie is viewed on a
TV with standard (4:3) aspect ratio.
• Video-game images and scoreboards
• Television station logos—present a problem if they are
bright and stationary; moving or low-contrast graphics are
less likely to cause uneven aging of the picture tube
• Stock-market tickers—presented at the bottom of the TV
screen
• Shopping channel logos and pricing displays—bright
and shown constantly or repeatedly in the same location on
the TV screen.
CLEANING
PLACEMENT OF THE TV
• To avoid cabinet warping, cabinet color changes, and
increased chance of set failure, do not place the TV where
temperatures can become excessively hot; for example, in
direct sunlight or near a heating appliance.
• Be sure to allow a free flow of air to and from the perforated
back cover of the set.
CLEANING
• To avoid possible shock hazard, be sure the TV is unplugged
from the electrical outlet before cleaning.
• Regularly dust the TV with a dry, nonscratching duster to
keep the TV clean.
• When cleaning the TV, take care not to scratch or damage the
screen surface. Avoid wearing jewelry or using anything
abrasive. Do not use household cleaners. Wipe the front
screen with a clean cloth dampened with water. Use even,
easy, vertical strokes when cleaning.
• Gently wipe the cabinet surfaces with a clean cloth or sponge
dampened in a solution of cool, clear water and a mild soap
or detergent. Use a clean, dry cloth to dry the wiped surfaces.
• Occasionally vacuum the ventilation holes or slots in the back
cover of the set.
• Never use thinners, insecticide sprays, or other chemicals on
or near the cabinet, as they might cause permanent marring
of the cabinet finish.

translation for the displayed programming).
Status/Exit Button • The remote control function that allows
you to quickly confirm what channel number you are watching.
Status/Exit can also be used to clear the television of onscreen
displays or information. You can use Status/Exit rather than having to wait for the displays to “time out,” or automatically disappear from the screen.
S-Video Input • Signal input that allows direct connection of
high-resolution video sources, such as a satellite receiver, DVD
player, S (Super)-VHS videocassette recorder, or video games.

required for displaying the onscreen image are combined in one
signal.

This product can be repaired in-home.
WHO IS COVERED?
MAKE SURE YOU KEEP...
You must have proof of purchase to receive warranty service. A sales
receipt or other document showing that you purchased the product is
considered proof of purchase.
Please keep your sales receipt or other document showing proof of
purchase. Attach it to this owner’s manual and keep both nearby.
Also keep the original box and packing material in case you need to
return your product.
WHAT IS COVERED?
BEFORE REQUESTING SERVICE...
Warranty coverage begins the day you buy your product. For 90 days
thereafter, all parts will be repaired or replaced free, and labor is free.
From 90 days to one year from the day of purchase, all parts will be
repaired or replaced free, but you pay for all labor charges. From one
to two years from the day of purchase, you pay for the replacement or
repair of all parts except the picture tube, and for all labor charges.
After two years from the day of purchase, you pay for the replacement
or repair of all parts, and for all labor charges.
All parts, including repaired and replaced parts, are covered only for
the original warranty period. When the warranty on the product
expires, the warranty on all replaced and repaired parts also expires.
Please check your owner’s manual before requesting service.
Adjustments of the controls discussed there may save you a service
call.

PUERTO RICO OR U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS...

(In U.S.A., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands, all implied warranties,
including implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are limited in duration to the duration of this express
warranty. But, because some states do not allow limitations on how
long an implied warranty may last, this limitation may not apply to
you.)

Your warranty does not cover:
• labor charges for installation or setup of the product, adjustment of
customer controls on the product, and installation or repair of
antenna systems outside of the product.

operate in any country other than the country for which it was
designed, manufactured, approved and/or authorized, or repair of
products damaged by these modifications.
• incidental or consequential damages resulting from the product.
(Some states do not allow the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. This
includes, but is not limited to, prerecorded material, whether copyrighted or not copyrighted.)
• a product used for commercial or institutional purposes.
