NOTIFICATION
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
the limits for a Class B digital device pursuant to Part 15
of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
residential installation. This equipment generates, uses,
and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the instructions,
may cause harmful interference with radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If
this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio
or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged
to try to correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
❑
❑
❑
❑
Reorient or relocate the receiving antennas.
Increase the separation between the equipment and
receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit
different from that to which the receiver is

CAUTION
❑
How to reduce the risk of “Image Retention”
on your Projection TV
❑
Bright, stationary images such as TV station logos
displayed on your TV can cause permanent damage to your
TV, resulting in retention of the image in the picture.
Please take the following steps to reduce the risk of causing
image retention:
View a variety of program sources or programming
material.
Image retention can occur when bright stationary images
such as TV station logos are viewed. Changing the
program material viewed reduces the possibility that a
single image will become imprinted on the picture tubes in
your TV.
When viewing programs with stationary images, adjust the
picture setting to reduce the “Picture” and “Brightness”
levels. Image retention is accelerated by higher
“Brightness” and higher “Picture” settings.
Please refer to your instruction manual for instructions on
adjusting picture settings.
This will help you reduce the risk of causing image
retention.
IMAGE RETENTION IS NOT COVERED BY
YOUR WARRANTY
This document is for the remote control RM-Y909.
MODELS: KP-51HW40, KP-57HW40
Please keep this notice with the instruction manual.

Important Safeguards
For your protection, please read these instructions
completely, and keep this manual for future reference.
Carefully observe and comply with all warnings, cautions
and instructions placed on the set or described in the
operating instructions or service manual.
WARNING
To guard against injury, the following basic safety
precautions should be observed in the installation, use
and servicing of the set.
Use
Power Sources
This set should be operated only from
the type of power source indicated on
the serial/model plate. If you are not sure
of the type of electrical power supplied
to your home, consult your dealer or
local power company. For those sets designed to operate
from battery power, refer to the operating instructions.
Grounding or Polarization
This set is equipped with a polarized AC power cord plug

three-wire grounding type plug (a plug having a third pin
for grounding). Follow the instructions below:
For the set with a polarized AC power cord
plug
Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets, extension
cords or convenience receptacles
beyond their capacity, since this can
result in fire or electric shock.
Always turn the set off when it is not
being used. When the set is left
unattended and unused for long
periods of time, unplug it from the
wall outlet as a precaution against the
possibility of an internal malfunction that could create a

If a snapping or popping sound from a TV
set is continuous or frequent while the TV
is operating, unplug the TV and consult
your dealer or service technician. It is
normal for some TV sets to make
occasional snapping or popping sounds,
particularly when being turned on or off.
Object and Liquid Entry
Never push objects of any kind into the
set through the cabinet slots as they may
touch dangerous voltage points or short
out parts that could result in a fire or
electric shock. Never spill liquid of any
kind on the set.
Attachments
This plug will fit into the power outlet
only one way. This is a safety feature. If
you are unable to insert the plug fully
into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If
the plug still fails to fit, contact your electrician to have a

Connections
Cable Box and Cable
This is the preferred basic cable TV hookup to use if:
Your cable TV company scrambles some channels, but not all of them
(pay channels vs. regular cable channels) and you need to use a cable
box, and
❑
You want to enjoy the Twin View feature.
With this setup you can:
❑
Use the projection TV remote control to change channels using your
cable box when the signal is scrambled.
❑
Use the projection TV remote control to change channels using your
projection TV when the signal is not scrambled. (Your projection TV’s
tuner provides a better signal than the cable box.)
❑
Use the Twin View feature. (When all channels are routed through your
cable box, only one channel is sent to the projection TV, so you can not
use the Twin View or Channel Index features for your cable box.)
1
2
Connect the Cable TV cable to the projection TV’s VHF/UHF jack.
3
Using a coaxial cable, connect the cable box’s OUT jack to the
projection TV’s AUX jack.
Using a coaxial cable, connect the projection TV’s TO CONVERTER
jack to the cable box’s IN jack. The projection TV’s internal converter
allows you to switch between unscrambled signals coming straight into
the projection TV and scrambled signals coming in through the cable
box, eliminating the need for an external splitter.

❑
You do not intend to hook up any other audio or video equipment to
your projection TV.
When all channels are routed through your cable box, only one unscrambled
channel is sent to the projection TV, so you cannot use the Twin View
feature. If some channels are scrambled, but others are not, consider using
the hookup on page 17 instead.
