IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
• Outdoor Antenna Grounding — 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. Article 810 of the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information
with regard 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 antennadischarge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode.

laundry tub; in a wet basement; or near a swimming pool; and the like.
• Stand — Do not place the product on an unstable cart, stand, tripod or table. Placing the product on an unstable base can
cause the product to fall, resulting in serious personal injuries as well as damage to the product. Use only a cart, stand,
tripod, bracket or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the product. When mounting the product on a wall,
be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Use only the mounting hardware recommended by the manufacturer.
• Selecting the location — Select a place with no direct sunlight and good ventilation.
• Ventilation — The vents and other openings in the cabinet are designed for ventilation. Do not cover or block these
vents and openings since insufficient ventilation can cause overheating and/or shorten the life of the product. Do not
place the product on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface, since they can block ventilation openings. This product
is not designed for built-in installation; do not place the product in an enclosed place such as a bookcase or rack,
unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer’s instructions are followed.
• The Liquid Crystal panel used in this product is made of glass. Therefore, it can break when the product is dropped or
applied with impact. Be careful not to be injured by broken glass pieces in case the panel breaks.
• Heat — The product should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other
products (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
• The Liquid Crystal panel is a very high technology product with 1,049,088 pixels, giving you fine picture details.
Occasionally, a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen as a fixed point of blue, green or red. Please note that
this does not affect the performance of your product.
• Lightning — For added protection for this television equipment during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended
and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna. This will prevent
damage to the equipment due to lightning and power-line surges.
• Power Lines — An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric
light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system,
extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
• To prevent fire, never place any type of candle or flames on the top or near the TV set.
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not place the AC cord under the TV set or other heavy items.
• Do not display a still picture for a long time, as this could cause an afterimage to remain.
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this product to dripping or splashing.
No objects filled with liquids, such as vases, should be placed on the product.
• Do not insert foreign objects into the product. Inserting objects in the air vents or other openings may result in fire or
electric shock. Exercise special caution when using the product around children.
• CONDENSATION — Moisture will form in the operating section of the player if the player is brought from cool
surroundings into a warm room or if the temperature of the room rises suddenly. When this happens, player’s
performance will be impaired. To prevent this, let the player stand in its new surroundings for about an hour before
switching it on, or make sure that the room temperature rises gradually. Condensation may also form during the
summer if the player is exposed to the breeze from an air conditioner. In such cases, change the location of the player.
• DISC SLOT — Keep your fingers well clear of the disc slot as it is closing. Failure to do so may cause serious personal injury.
• LASER BEAM — Do not look into the opening of the disc slot or ventilation opening of the product to see the source of
the laser beam. Doing so may cause sight damage.
• DISC — Do not use a cracked, deformed, or repaired disc. These discs are easily broken and may cause serious
personal injury and product malfunction.
Precautions when transporting the TV
• When transporting the TV, never carry it by holding or otherwise putting pressure onto the display. Be sure to always
carry the TV by two people holding it with two hands — one hand on each side of the TV.
Caring for the Cabinet
• Use a soft cloth (cotton, flannel, etc.) and gently wipe the surface of the cabinet.
• Using a chemical cloth (wet/dry sheet type cloth, etc.) may deform the components of the main unit cabinet or cause cracking.
• Wiping with a hard cloth or using strong force may scratch the surface of the cabinet.
• If the cabinet is very dirty, wipe with a soft cloth (cotton, flannel, etc.) soaked in neutral detergent diluted with water
and thoroughly wrung out, and then wipe with a soft dry cloth.
• The cabinet is primarily made of plastic. Avoid using benzene, thinner, and other solvents, as these may deform the
cabinet and cause the paint to peel off.
• Do not apply insecticides or other volatile liquids.
Also, do not allow the cabinet to remain in contact with rubber or vinyl products for a long period of time. Plasticizers
inside the plastic may cause the cabinet to deform and cause the paint to peel off.

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.

Preparation
Using the remote control unit
Use the remote control unit by pointing it towards the remote control sensor on
the TV/DVD. 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/DVD
is under direct sunlight or strong lighting. In such cases, change the angle of the lighting or
the TV/DVD, 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).
F-type connector
75-ohm coaxial cable (round)
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.)
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).

Closed captions and digital closed
captions
NOTE
• Closed Caption might not appear according to the
condition of the signal from the broadcasting station.
Your TV/DVD is equipped with an internal Closed
Caption decoder. It allows you to view conversations,
narration and sound effects as subtitles on your
TV/DVD. 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 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), FRA (French) or other
language codes.
Not all programs and VHS videotapes offer closed
captions. Please look for the “ ” 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 “C1” and “C2” services display
subtitles of TV programs superimposed over the
program’s picture. Generally, Closed Captions in
English are transmitted on C1 and Closed Captions in
other languages are transmitted on C2.

NOTE
• To turn the Closed Caption feature off, setting the “CC
Setting” to “Off”.
In the Closed Caption system, the “T1” or “T2”
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.
NOTE
• If the program or video you selected is not closed-captioned, no captions will display on-screen.
• If text is not available in your viewing area, a black rectangle may appear on-screen. If this happens, setting the “CC
Setting” to “Off”.
• When selecting Closed Captions, the captioning will be delayed approx. 10 seconds.
• 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
transmissions do not allow time for editing.
• When Captions are being displayed, on-screen displays, such as volume and mute may be seen but may interfere with
Closed Captions.
• Some Cable TV systems and copy protection systems may interfere with the Closed Captioned signal.
• If using an indoor antenna or if TV reception is very poor, the Closed Caption Decoder may not appear or may appear with
strange characters or misspelled words. In this case, adjust the antenna for better reception or use an outdoor antenna.
• When a Digital TV Program has both Digital Closed Caption and Analog Closed Caption signals, Digital Closed Caption is
displayed.

Parental control (V-CHIP)
V-CHIP might not function according to the condition of the signal from the broadcasting station.
V-CHIP is an electronic filtering device built into your TV/DVD. 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/DVD.
V-CHIP menu will not be selectable from the menu if you do not first configure your password.
(See page 24 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.

• A prohibition message “Depending on the disc, this operation may be prohibited” or “This operation can’t be performed”
may appear at the screen. This message means either the feature you tried is not available on the disc, or the unit cannot
access the feature at this time. This does not indicate a problem with the unit.
• When you set a single-faced disc label downwards (i.e. the wrong way up) “Loading” will appear on the display and then
“Can’t play disc” will be displayed.
• Some playback operations of DVDs may be intentionally fixed by software producers. Since this TV/DVD plays DVDs
