extensive work by a qualified
technician to restore the TV receiver
to its normal operation.
e) If the television equipment has been
dropped or the cabinet has been
damaged.
f) When the television equipment
exhibits a distinct change
in performance this indicates
a need for service.
18. When replacement parts are required, be

Connecting an Antenna or cable to Your TV
Your TV will provide you with the best performance if you connect it to an external antenna or
cable system. Follow the directions below to make this connection. Please note that you will
normally only have to make one of the connections shown below, not all of them.
All connections will be made to the antenna terminal on the back of your TV. The antenna
terminal is a silver metal post partially surrounded by two plastic tabs. For help in locating the
antenna terminal, see “Your TV’s Back Panel” on page 4.
If you purchased model AVT-1928 there is no antenna provided with your TV.
Connecting an Antenna
If your antenna ends in a single coaxial lead,
simply press or screw the cable into the back of
your TV.
If your antenna ends in a pair of 300 ohm twin leads, you must use a 300-ohm/75-ohm adapter.
Place the leads underneath the screws on the adapter, tighten the screws, then press the adapter
onto the antenna terminal on the back of the TV. (the adapter is not included with your TV).
Chapter 2: Connecting to an Antenna or Cable to your TV- 7
Antennas with two sets of leads
You might have two sets of leads from your antenna system, especially if you have one antenna for
VHF signals and one antenna for UHF signals.
If your antenna system has both a coaxial lead and twin 300 ohm leads, you must obtain a
combiner (available at your local electronics store). Press or screw the coaxial lead onto the
combiner; place the twin leads underneath the screws on the combiner and tighten the screws. Press
the cable from the combiner onto the antenna terminal on the back of your TV.
If your antenna system has two sets of twin 300 ohm leads, you must obtain a combiner
9available at your local electronics store). Place one set of twin leads underneath the screws on the
combiner and tighten the screws. Do the same with the other set of twin leads. Press the cable from
the combiner onto the antenna terminal on the back of your TV.
Connecting a cable system
If your cable set-up is not described below, please contact your local cable company for more
information.
If your cable system does not require the
cable box, simply press or screw the incoming
cable onto the antenna terminal on the back of
your TV.
8- Chapter 2: Connecting an Antenna or Cable to Your TV
If your cable system requires you to use a converter box for all channels, connect the incoming
cable to the IN terminal on the converter box. Connect another cable between the OUT terminal on
the converter box and the antenna terminal on the TV.
If your cable system only requires you to use a converter box for some channels (i.e. pay-TV
channels), follow these steps: Find the primary incoming coaxial cable. Plug this cable into the
splitter available at your local electronics store). Connect the one coaxial cable between one OUT
terminal on the splitter and the IN terminal on the converter box. Connect another coaxial cable
between the other OUT terminal on the splitter and the IN terminal on an A/B switch (available at your
local electronics store). Connect a third coaxial cable between the OUT terminal on the converter box
and the A-IN terminal on the A/B switch. Finally, connect a coaxial cable between the OUT terminal
on the A/B switch and the antenna terminal on the back of your TV.
When the A/B switch is in the B position, you need to change channels on the converter box (and
your Tv should be tuned to channel 3 or 4); when the A/B switch is in the A position you can change
channels on the TV.
Connecting Other Pieces of Equipment
You may want to connect a VCR, laser disc player, satellite receiver, or another type of
equipment to your TV. We recommend that you follow the instructions included with the piece
of equipment you wish to connect.
Safety Note
If you plan on being away from your home for an extended peroid of time, or if a thunderstorm
is approaching, you should unplug your television, and you may wish to disconnect your TV
from a roof top or satellite antenna. You do not need to disconnect your TV from a cable
system.

5. Wait 5 seconds, or press the MENU button twice to return to normal TV viewing. Your
setting will remain intact until you change it.
About captions
Once you have chosen a caption setting, all available captions on that setting will be displayed
when you watch TV. If no captions appear, it is because there are no captions being
broadcast for that show. Look for a “CC” mark in the TV listings or on video tapes. This mark
indicates that captions are provided for that program.
Please note: The content and appearance of captions are determined by the broadcaster, not
the TV. If the captions display strange characters, misspellings, or odd words, those errors are
made by the Broadcaster, not your TV. Errors in captioning are more common during live
programs than during taped programs.
Your TV cannot display captions when it is displaying any other on screen information. If you
use the RECALL or VOL buttons, the captions will briefly disappear.
Changing captions with the remote control
1. You can also change the caption setting with
the remote control. Repeatedly press the
CAPTION button on the remote control until the
caption setting you prefer (off, C1, C2, T1, or
T2) appears.
