Preparation
Using the remote control unit
Use the remote control unit by pointing it towards the remote control sensor on
the TV. Objects between the remote control unit and the remote control sensor
may prevent proper operation.
Cautions regarding remote control unit
• Do not expose the remote control unit to shock.
In addition, do not expose the remote control unit to liquids, and do not place in an area
with high humidity.
• Do not install or place the remote control unit under direct sunlight. The heat may cause
deformation of the remote control unit.
• The remote control unit may not work properly if the remote control sensor on the TV is
under direct sunlight or strong lighting. In such cases, change the angle of the lighting
or the TV, or operate the remote control unit closer to the remote control sensor.
Antennas
To enjoy a clearer picture, use an outdoor antenna. The following is a brief explanation of the types of
connections that are used for a coaxial cable. If your outdoor antenna uses a 75-ohm coaxial cable with an
F-type connector, plug it into the antenna terminal at the rear of the TV set.
F-type connector
1. A 75-ohm system is generally a round cable with F-type
connector that can easily be attached to a terminal without
tools (Commercially available).
75-ohm coaxial cable (round)
2. A 300-ohm system is a flat “twin-lead” cable that can be
attached to a 75-ohm terminal through a 300/75-ohm adapter
(Commercially available).
300-ohm twin-lead cable (flat)
NOTICE
F-type connector should be finger-tightened only.
When connecting the RF cable to the TV set, do not tighten
F-type connector with tools.
If tools are used, it may cause damage to your TV set.

Digital Closed Caption service is a new caption
service available only on digital TV programs (also
at the discretion of the service provider). It is a more
flexible system than the original Closed Caption
system, because it allows a variety of caption
sizes and font styles. When the Digital Closed
Caption service is in use, it will be indicated by
the appearance of a 3-letter abbreviation that also
indicates the language of the Digital Closed Captions:

• If no caption signal is received, no captions will appear, but the television will remain in the Caption Mode.
• Misspellings or unusual characters may occasionally appear during Closed Captioning. This is normal with Closed
Captioning, especially with live programs. This is because during live programs, captions are also entered live. These

Parental control (V-CHIP)
V-CHIP is an electronic filtering device built into your TV. This tool gives parents a great degree of control over
broadcasts accessed by their children. It allows parents to select programs judged suitable for child viewing
while blocking ones judged not suitable. It does so automatically once you activate the V-CHIP feature in your
TV.
V-CHIP SET menu will not be selectable from the menu if you do not first configure your password.
(See page 32 for password setting for parental control.)
• The U.S. has two rating systems for viewing content: movie ratings and TV Parental Guidelines.
• The TV Parental Guidelines work in conjunction with the V-CHIP to help parents screen out inappropriate
television shows from their children.
• Movie ratings are used for original movies rated by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) as
watched on cable TV and not edited for television. The V-CHIP can also be set to block MPAA-rated movies.

Cautions regarding use in high and low temperature environments
• When the unit is used in a low temperature space (e.g. room, office), the picture may leave trails or appear slightly
delayed. This is not a malfunction, and the unit will recover when the temperature returns to normal.
• Do not leave the unit in a hot or cold location. Also, do not leave the unit in a location exposed to direct sunlight or near
a heater, as this may cause the cabinet to deform and the Liquid Crystal panel to malfunction.
