Welcome to the SHARP Family. We are pleased that you are now the owner of a SHARP Color Television
– built for outstanding quality, reliability and performance.
Every SHARP Color Television set is tuned and adjusted for proper color and sound, and has passed
through the most stringent quality control tests at the factory. We have prepared this OPERATION MANUAL
so that you may adjust the picture and color to your personal viewing preference.
We sincerely hope that you receive the greatest satisfaction and enjoyment from your new SHARP Color
Television set for years to come.
Please read these instructions carefully, and keep them handy for your future reference.
IMPORTANT
To aid reporting in case of loss or theft, please record the TV’s
model and serial numbers in the space provided. The numbers
are located at the rear of the TV.

Important Information
There are two important reasons for prompt warranty registration of your new SHARP television set,
using the REGISTRATION CARD packed in with the set.
FIRST – WARRANTY
This is to assure that you will immediately receive the full consumer benefit of the parts, service and labor
warranty applicable to your purchase.
SECOND – CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY ACT
To assure that you will promptly receive any safety notification on inspection, modification or recall that
SHARP may be required to give under the 1972 Consumer Product Safety Act. PLEASE READ
CAREFULLY THE IMPORTANT “LIMITED WARRANTY” CLAUSE ON THE LAST PAGE.
WHAT IS ENERGY STAR®
TVs and VCRs use energy both when they are on and when they are off. Americans spend more than
$1 billion a year on energy consumed by TVs and VCRs when they are not in use. The new ENERGY
STAR® models will reduce that energy “leakage” by up to 75 percent. Ultimately, this will mean more than
$500 million a year in energy savings for consumers.
The energy savings will help reduce the burning of fossil fuels and the related carbon dioxide pollution
that contributes to global warming. If every American family replaced their TVs and VCRs with ENERGY
STAR® models, it would reduce carbon dioxide emissions by five million tons every year — equivalent to
eliminating the pollution from more than one million cars.
By using ENERGY STAR® products, you will save money on your electric bills and use less energy. That
makes good economic sense and it’s good for our environment.

Important Safeguards (Continued)
14. If an outside antenna is connected to the television equipment, 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 Electrical Code 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
conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements
for the grounding electrode.

Before Operating Your Television
Location
• For normal operation, your TV should be located in an area of the room where cool adequate ventilation
is provided. Do not place the back of the television set in a place where free airflow will be restricted.
• Any magnetic force may disturb the color picture. Make sure that magnets, electric clocks, toys using
magnets or any other magnetic substance, such as iron are kept well away from this TV set.
Power
Your TV operates on 120 Volts, 60 Hertz (normal household current) and has a polarized plug. If you
are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. Should it fail to fit, contact an
electrician. Do not defeat the safety feature of the polarized plug.
NOTE:
• If the set will not be used for a long period, such as during a vacation, unplug the set from the wall
outlet to economize power. (If the TV set is plugged in, a slight current still flows, even with the
POWER BUTTON in the OFF position.)
• Lines and other noise may appear in TV broadcast images when an FM tuner or radio is located near
the TV and both radio and TV broadcasts are being received. Should such noise appear, turn off
either the TV or the radio.
• If you are listening to an AM broadcast, turn the TV off. AM broadcast signals may not be received
due to the interference of the TV.
L Before using the television, prepare the Remote Control

Antenna Connections
Antennas
• The antenna requirements for good color television reception are more important than those for
black & white television reception. For this reason, a good quality outdoor antenna is strongly
recommended.
The following is a brief explanation of the type of connections that are provided with the various
antenna systems:
1. A 75 ohm system is generally a round cable with F-type connector
that can easily be attached to a terminal without tools (not
supplied). The F-type connector should be finger tightened
only.
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 ADAPTOR (not
supplied).
F-type connector
75-ohm coaxial cable (round)
300-ohm twin-lead cable (flat)
OUTDOOR ANTENNA CONNECTION
• Use one of the following two diagrams if you connect an outdoor antenna.
A: Using a VHF/UHF combination outdoor antenna.
B: Using separate VHF and/or UHF outdoor antenna.
• Connect an outdoor antenna cable lead-in to the COAXIAL CABLE CONNECTOR on the rear of the
TV set.
A. Combination VHF/UHF
B. Separate VHF/UHF
CABLE TV (CATV) CONNECTION
• A 75 ohm coaxial cable connector is built into the set for easy hookup. When connecting the 75 ohm
coaxial cable to the set, screw the 75 ohm cable to the COAXIAL CABLE CONNECTOR.
• Some cable TV companies offer “premium pay channels”. Since the signals of these premium pay
channels are scrambled, a cable TV converter/descrambler is generally provided to the subscriber
by the cable TV company. This converter/descrambler is necessary for normal viewing of the scrambled
channels. (Set your TV on channel 3 or 4. Typically one of these channels is used. If this is unknown,
consult your cable TV company.) For more specific instructions on installing cable TV, consult your
cable TV company. One possible method of utilizing the converter/descrambler provided by your
cable TV company is explained below.
Please note: RF switch equipped with position A/B (not provided) is required.
“A” position on the RF switch (not supplied) : You can view all unscrambled channels using the TV’s
channel keys.
“B” position on the RF switch (not supplied) : You can view the scrambled channels via the converter/
descrambler using the converter’s channel keys.

Closed Caption
L HOW TO SET CLOSED CAPTION
• Your TV is equipped with an internal Closed Caption decoder. “Closed
Caption” is a system which allows you to view conversations, narration,
and sound effects in TV programs and home videos as subscript on
your TV screen as shown on the right.
• Not all the programs and videos will offer closed caption. Please look
for the “
” symbol to ensure that captions will be shown.
• Closed Caption broadcast can be viewed in two modes: CAPTION
and TEXT. For each mode, two channels are available, CH1 and CH2:
The [CAPTION] mode subscripts dialogues and commentaries of TV
dramas and news programs while allowing clear view of the picture.
The [TEXT] mode displays over the picture other various information
(such as TV program schedule, weather forecast, etc.) that is
independent of the TV programs.

Parent Control (V-CHIP Operation)
L V-CHIP
• This function allows you to restrict TV programs and also allows you to control TV usage based on
FCC data. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes that may
be harmful.
• Restriction of TV programs includes two characters that contain information about the program’s MPAA
rating and the TV Parental Guidelines. MPAA is restricted by age. TV Parental Guidelines are restricted
by age and contents.
• Since a TV program may use either the MPAA rating or the TV Guidelines you should adjust both for
complete control.

Operation of Remote Control
L “ Identifying” Remote VCR and Cable TV
Converters
Your Remote Control has been set at the
factory to operate your TV and many remote
control VCRs and Cable Converters. However,
in some cases an easy one-time set-up step
may be necessary before the Remote will
operate accessory VCRs and Cable
Converters.
• In this set-up step, the Remote locates and
memorizes the remote control transmitter code
for the VCR or Cable Converter.
• Once “identified”, the Remote sends the proper
remote signals to operate your accessory.
• This identify step will not have to be repeated
until power to the Remote is interrupted due
to a battery failure.
L Universal Remote Control
With the purchase of your television set you
also have received the latest innovation in
remote control technology. With its easy-touse push-button keypad, your Remote can
control your television set and most infrared
remote-controlled VCRs and cable TV
converters as well.
NOTE:
• Depending on the model, year produced,
brand and type of VCR, some models may
not be compatible with the remote control.
• Some brands of VCR or Cable TV converter
Box may not enable channel selection until
the ENTER is pressed.
Example:
When you select channel 24,
(1) Press REMOTE KEYPAD “2”.
(2) Press REMOTE KEYPAD “4”.
(3) Press ENTER.
For detailed information on the use of the VCR
or Cable TV converter Box refer to their
operating manuals.

unit. The various VCR function buttons on the
Remote Control will not operate your VCR
if those features are not already found on
your unit.
• All VCR buttons will operate whether the
Remote Control is in TV or CATV modes.
• For detailed information on the use of the VCR,

TIPS ON IDENTIFYING YOUR VCR:
If your VCR model does not have the CHANNEL
UP function on its remote control, it cannot be
identified using the SEARCH method of identifying.
For such models, please try the DIRECT ENTRY
method of identifying.
Be Patient: a minute or two can seem a lot longer
when you’re waiting for something to happen, but
the code should be identified within two minutes.
Remember, it is only a one-time set-up.
Be careful not to let the VCR scan more than five
channels when the indicator starts to move up.
If you continue holding down the DISPLAY and
CH UP (8) after five channel scans, the proper
remote code can be passed up, and the two minute
identify cycle will have to be repeated.
If a channel change does not occur on the VCR
within two minutes, read the identifying instructions
again and repeat the steps. Should a channel
change still not occur the remote will not operate
with the desired VCR.
