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 TV set.
F-type connector
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).
75-ohm coaxial cable (round)
300-ohm twin-lead cable (flat)

AV MODE
AUDIO
■ MTS/SAP stereo mode
The TV has a feature that allows reception of sound
other than the main audio for the program. This feature
is called Multi-channel Television Sound (MTS). The TV
with MTS can receive mono sound, stereo sound
and Secondary Audio Programs (SAP). The SAP
feature allows a TV station to broadcast other
information, which could be audio in another language
or something completely different like weather
information.
AV MODE gives you several viewing options to choose
from to best match the surrounding environment of the
TV, which can vary due to factors like room brightness,
type of program watched or the type of image input
from external equipment.
Press AV MODE. Current AV MODE displays.
• Press AV MODE again before the mode displayed on the
screen disappears. The mode changes as shown below:
Example:

Closed Captions and Digital Closed Captions
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.
• See page 25 for detailed closed caption settings.
• When the program contains no closed caption, “--” displays
in the closed caption information.
• If the language code, e.g. “ENG”, is not found on Digital TV
programs, “--” will be shown.
• Four kinds of closed caption service (CC1, CC2, Text1,
Text2) are potentially available, but a broadcast may contain
none or only some of these services at the discretion of the
program 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), FRA (French) or other
language codes.
Not all programs and VHS videotapes offer closed
captions. Please look for the “N” symbol to ensure
that captions will be shown.

V-Chip
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.
Parental CTRL
(Parental Control Setting)
Secret No.
Allows you to use a secret number to protect certain
settings from being accidentally changed.
IMPORTANT:
Three conditions must be met to enable the V-Chip (see
pages 22 to 24):
• 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.
1. Secret No. is registered.
2. V-Chip/V-Chip (DTV Only) settings have been made.
• The “V-Chip (DTV Only)” will only be selectable when
a new rating system can be downloaded via digital
broadcasting in the U.S.
3. "Status" is set to "On".
■ New Secret No.
You can set and change the secret number by using 0–9.
• The setting automatically enters "Block" for any ratings
below your selection.
• If Status is not set to "On", the configuration settings will
not work.
Input Secret No.: When you change the secret number,
enter the old 4-digit secret number here. The cursor
moves to "New Secret No.".
New Secret No.: When you set the new secret number,
enter the new 4-digit secret number here. The cursor
moves to "Reconfirm".
