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 the 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.
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).
NOTICE
F-type connector should be fingertightened 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. (The breaking of internal circuit, etc.)
F-type connector
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).

Connecting two or more i.LINK devices
Up to 16 i.LINK devices can be connected using a
daisy-chain connection with i.LINK cables.
About i.LINK
i.LINK is an interface connection using a serial transfer
system and is able to transfer multimedia data, such
as digital images and digital sound, between devices
that have i.LINK terminals. i.LINK is a term defined in
the IEEE1394 (Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers) standard. Currently, the transfer speeds are
at 100 Mbps, 200 Mbps and 400 Mbps, each of them
expressed as S100, S200 and S400 respectively. On
this TV, the maximum speed is 400 Mbps.
i. LINK devices that can be connected to this TV
D-VHS decks, AV-HDD recorders, Blu-ray Disc
recorders, HDV camcorders, STBs and TVs can be
connected to this TV via i.LINK. Other devices such
as DVD recorders, non-HDV camcorders, computers
or computer peripheral devices do not meet the
specifications for this TV and therefore cannot be
connected via i.LINK. Even for the types of i.LINK
device mentioned above, device recognition, control,
recording and playback operations may not be possible
on some devices.
Materials that can be recorded with the i.LINK
Only digital programs can be recorded by i.LINK
devices connected to this TV using the i.LINK. i.LINK
recording is not compatible with analog broadcasts or
external input signals (INPUT terminals 1 through 5).
i.LINK connection
NOTE
• Please make sure the
shapes of the terminal
and the plug match,
and insert the plug into
the terminal straight,
not on an angle.
• Use either one of the
terminals. These two
terminals do not differ
in quality or function.
i.LINK device
Only an i.LINK cable is needed
to connect the TV to i.LINK
devices. (VIDEO, S-VIDEO, and
AUDIO cables do not need to be
connected.)
When 3 or more i.LINK devices are connected, branch
connection can be used. With branch connections, up
to 62 i.LINK devices can be connected.
Cautions regarding i.LINK connection
• Please use S400 type i.LINK cables.
• Some i.LINK devices may not relay data if their power is off.
In this case the device should be connected at the end of
any series of connections.
• This TV can relay data during power off, by selecting “Active”
in the “Standby Mode” option in “i.LINK Setup”. (See page
35.)
• Please do NOT use a loop connection as shown in the
diagram.
• When any devices are playing or recording via i.LINK, do
not turn off the power of, or disconnect the cable from
any of the i.LINK devices, even if one or more of the i.LINK
devices are not in use. Doing so may affect the picture and
the sound from an i.LINK device in use.
• If devices such as DVD recorders, non-HDV camcorders,
computers and computer peripheral devices that are not
compatible with this TV are connected to the TV using
i.LINK, other i.LINK connections may be disrupted.
• If device recognition, control, recording or play back, on
an i.LINK connected device does not function correctly,
correct operation may be restored by disconnecting and
reconnecting the i.LINK cable.
• When connecting multiple i.LINK devices, depending on
the specifications and the interoperability of the connected
devices, their operation may not be stable. In that case,
disconnecting all devices not in use and changing the
method of connection may result in stable operation.

Closed Captions and Digital Closed
Captions
Your TV is equipped with an internal Closed Caption

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 a 3-letter
abbreviation that also indicates the language of the
Digital Closed Captions: ENG (English), SPA (Spanish),

information
• Depending on the number of caption services
in the signal being received, you will see
information such as 1/2 or 1/4 displayed.
1/2 means “the first of two services”.
Example:
If a program has three services (Digital CC(ENG),

Not all programs and VHS videotapes offer closed
captions. Please look for the “N” symbol to ensure
that captions will be shown.

• The CC button keeps a record of the last service
selected in its memory.
If the last closed caption mode (e.g. 1/3ENG)
you selected is not available for the next
program, or on another channel, the closed
caption service that is available is automatically
selected, and this service appears in
parentheses, e.g. “1/3(CC1)”.
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.
In the Closed Caption system, the “Text1” or “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.
Examples:
In a case where there are two closed caption
services provided, (for instance, Digital CC(ENG)
and CC1), and Digital CC(ENG) is displayed

Parental control (setting V-CHIP level)
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” and “Status” will not be selectable from the menu if you do not first configure your secret
number. (See page 56 for Secret number setting for parental control.)
• The U.S. has two rating systems for viewing content: TV Parental Guidelines and movie ratings.
• 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.

Canadian Rating Systems
• 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
Rating
Age
Description
E
Exempt: Includes news, sports, documentaries and other information programming; talk shows,
music videos, and variety programming.
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.
C8e
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.
14e
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.
18e
Adults: Intended for viewers 18 years and older and might contain 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.
Canadian French ratings
Rating
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.

contain scenes disturbing to children under 8 who cannot distinguish between imaginary and real
situations. Recommended for viewing with parent.

viewing with parent.
16anse

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.
