IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
CHILD SAFETY:
It Makes A Difference How and Where You Use Your Flat Panel Display
Congratulations on your purchase! As you enjoy your new product, please keep these safety tips in mind:
THE ISSUE
• The home theater entertainment experience is a growing trend and larger flat panel
displays are popular purchases. However, flat panel displays are not always supported
on the proper stands or installed according to the manufacturer's recommendations.
• Flat panel displays that are inappropriately situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves,
desks, speakers, chests or carts may fall over and cause injury.
THIS MANUFACTURER CARES!
• The consumer electronics industry is committed to making home entertainment enjoyable
and safe.
TUNE INTO SAFETY
• One size does NOT fit all. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for the safe
installation and use of your flat panel display.
• Carefully read and understand all enclosed instructions for proper use of this product.
• Don't allow children to climb on or play with furniture and television sets.
• Don't place flat panel displays on furniture that can easily be used as steps, such as
a chest of drawers.
• Remember that children can become excited while watching a program, especially
on a "larger than life" flat panel display. Care should be taken to place or install the
display where it cannot be pushed, pulled over, or knocked down.
• Care should be taken to route all cords and cables connected to the flat panel
display so that they cannot be pulled or grabbed by curious children.
WALL MOUNTING: IF YOU DECIDE TO WALL MOUNT YOUR FLAT
PANEL DISPLAY, ALWAYS:
• Use a mount that has been recommended by the display manufacturer and/or listed
by an independent laboratory (such as UL, CSA, ETL).
• Follow all instructions supplied by the display and wall mount manufacturers.
• If you have any doubts about your ability to safely install your flat panel display,
contact your retailer about professional installation.
• Make sure that the wall where you are mounting the display is appropriate. Some
wall mounts are not designed to be mounted to walls with steel studs or old cinder
block construction. If you are unsure, contact a professional installer.
• A minimum of two people are required for installation. Flat panel displays can be
heavy.

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 lV set.
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).
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).

Your TV is equipped with an internal Closed Caption
decoder. It allows you to view conversations, narration
and sound effects as subtitles on your TV. Closed
Captions are available on some TV programs and on
some VHS home video tapes at the discretion of the
program provider.
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 for 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 DTVCC.
Not all programs and VHS videotapes offer closed
captions. Please look for the "[ccl" symbol to ensure
that captions will be shown.
In the Closed Caption system, there can be more than
one caption service provided. Each is identified by its
own number. The "CC1" and "CC2" services display
subtitles of TV programs superimposed over the
program's picture.
In the Closed Caption system, the "T1 (TEXT1)" or "T2
(TEXT2)" services display text that is unrelated to the
program being viewed (e.g., weather or news). These
services are also superimposed over the program
currently being viewed.

• When a digital broadcast provides Closed Caption
service, the closed caption display will toggle in the
sequence: DTVCC (actual service), CC1, CC2, T1, and

selected in its memory.
If the last closed caption mode (e.g. 1/5 DTVCC) you
selected is not available for the next program, or on
another channel, the closed caption service that is
available is automatically selected.
Closed Caption services that appear in parentheses will
not be stored in the CC button's memory as your last
selected service. Only services that you have selected
with the CC button are stored.
Examples:
In a case where there are two closed caption
services provided (for instance, DTVCC and CC1),
and DTVCC is displayed as your current selection,
if DTVCC is not broadcast for the next program, the
other closed caption service, CC1, will be displayed.

information window. See page 23 for details of Power
Saving settings.

over broadcasts accessed by their children. It allows
parents to select programs judged suitable for child
viewing while blocking ones judged not suitable. It

feature in your N. "V-Chip" and "Status" will not be
selectable from the menu if you do not first configure
your secret number.
• The U.S. has two rating systems for viewing content: TV
Parental Guidelines and movie ratings.

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.

• The TV rating systems in Canada are based on the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC)
policy on violence in television programming.
• While violence is the most important content element to be rated, the structure developed takes into consideration other
program content like language, nudity, sexuality and mature themes.
• When setting the V-CHIP on the Canadian system you can choose either the Canadian English ratings or the Canadian French
ratings.
• Canadian English Ratings
E: Exempt: Includes news, sports, documentaries and other information
programming; talk shows, music videos, and variety programming.
Example
Press AJ~ to adjust the item to your desired
position. "Block" indicates the item is blocked.
Press MENU to exit.
• Canadian French Ratings
Example
Press J;./~ to adjust the item to your desired
position. "Block" indicates the item is blocked.
Press MENU to exit.
C: Children: Intended for younger children under the age of 8 years.
Pays careful attention to themes that could threaten their sense of
security and well-being.
C8+: Children over 8 years old: Contains no portrayal of violence as the
preferred, acceptable, or only way to resolve conflict; nor encourage
children to imitate dangerous acts which they may see on the screen.
G: General: Considered acceptable for all age groups. Appropriate
viewing for the entire family, contains very little violence, physical,
verbal or emotional.
PG: Parental Guidance: Intended for a general audience, but may not
be suitable for younger children (under the age of 8) because it could
contain controversial themes or issues.
14+: Over 14 years: Could contain themes where violence is one of
the dominant elements of the storyline, but it must be integral to the
development of plot or character. Language usage could be profane
and nudity present within the context of the theme.

depictions of violence, which while related to the development of plot,
character or themes, are intended for adult viewing. Could contain
graphic language and portrayals of sex and nudity.
E: Exempt programming.
G: General: All ages and children, contains minimal direct violence, but
may be integrated into the plot in a humorous or unrealistic manner.
8an5+: General but inadvisable for young children: May be viewed
by a wide public audience, but could contain scenes disturbing to
children under 8 who cannot distinguish between imaginary and real
situations.
Recommended for viewing with parent.
13an5+: Over 13 years: Could contain scenes of frequent violent scenes
and therefore recommended for viewing with parent.
16an5+: Over 16 years: Could contain frequent violent scenes and
intense violence.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Solution
• No power
• Check if you pressed TV POWER on the remote control unit. (See page 14.) If the
indicator on the lV does not light up, press POWER on the lV.
• Is the AC cord disconnected? (See page 7.)
• Has the power been turned on? (See page 14.)
• Unit cannot be operated.
• External influences such as lightning, static electricity, may cause improper operation.
In this case, operate the unit after first turning off the power of the lV or unplugging
the AC cord and replugging it in after 1 or 2 minutes.
• Remote control unit does not
operate.
•
•
•
•
•
• Picture is cut off/with sidebar
screen.
• Is the image position correct? (See page 25.)
• Are screen mode adjustments such as picture size made correctly? (See page 18.)
• Strange color, light color, or color
misalignment
• Adjust the picture tone. (See pages 21 and 22.)
• Is the room too bright? The picture may look dark in a room that is too bright.
• Check the input signal setting. (See page 24.)
• Power is suddenly turned off.
• Is the sleep timer set? (See page 15.)
• Check the power control settings. (See page 23.)
• The unit's internal temperature has increased. Remove any objects blocking vent or
clean.
• No picture
•
•
•
•
•
•
• No sound
• Is the volume too low? (See page 15.)
• Is "Variable" selected in "Output Select"? (See page 29.)
• Have you pressed MUTE on the remote control unit? (See page 15.)
• The lV sometimes makes a
cracking sound.
• This is not a malfunction. This happens when the cabinet slightly expands and
contracts according to change in temperature. This does not affect the lV's
performance.
Is the FUNCTION set correctly? Set it to the lV setting position.
Are batteries inserted with polarity ( +, -) aligned? (See page 8.)
Are batteries worn out? (Replace with new batteries.)
Are you using it under strong or fluorescent lighting?
Is a fluorescent light illuminated near the remote control sensor?
Is connection to other components correct? (See pages 12 and 13.)
Is correct input signal source selected after connection? (See page 29.)
Is the correct input selected? (See page 29.)
Is picture adjustment correct? (See pages 21 and 22.)
Is "On" selected in "Audio Only"? (See page 29.)
Is a non-compatible signal being input? (See page 42.)
Troubleshooting-Digital Broadcasting
The error message about reception of broadcast
The example of an error message
displayed on a screen
Possible Solution
• Failed to receive broadcast.
• Check the antenna cable. Check that the antenna is correctly setup.
• No broadcast now.
• Check the broadcast time in the program guide.
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.
