A bout the L-10D ELF television
In the easy to clean, membrane control panel, on the lower front of the TV, there
are 11 large, easy to read, buttons. Either the patient or the TV representative
can use the 5 buttons on the right side, to turn the TV on and off, change
channels and raise or lower the sound. These functions can be controlled as well,
with the infrared hand unit. The far right side of this panel responds to the infrared
beam produced when you press the buttons on the hand held infrared unit.
On the left side of the membrane control panel, the Menu button and the Enter
button makes it easy for patients to rent the television or "self rent", as it is called,
when the TV representative is not present. The other 4 buttons, on the left side of
the panel, become active when the L-10D ELF TV is operated as part of a
computerized system. Patients can then use these buttons to select from the
menu options that appear on the TV.
The infrared hand unit lets the TV representative manage the special features of
the L-10D ELF, such as levels of service, channel groupings and selections and
as well change the quality of the picture, features and choice of language.
The L-10D ELF is capable of receiving both Analog and Digital channels. The L10-D EFL infrared hand unit has numbered buttons which allow direct selection of
TV channels. Digital channel numbers can consist of a maximum of 4 Major digits
and 3 Minor digits. The Major and Minor digits are separated by a dash. Analog
channels have only three Major digits and the Minor digits are assumed to be 000.
It is only necessary to enter the significant digits of a channel number followed by
the ENT button on the IR Hand Unit. Pressing 3 followed by ENT will select
channel 3 Analog. Pressing 3,dash,1,ENT will select channel 3-1 Digital. Unless
in the SETUP MENU only channels in the Channel Map set for the current Level
of Service may be selected.In addition to normal TV channels the L-10D ELF has
Composite Audio/Video and PC (VGA) inputs. These inputs may be added to to
one or more Channel Maps so that they can be accessed just like a normal TV
channel. Video channel has been assigned the arbitrary channel number of 0-1
and only supports analog signals. PC Channel has been assigned the arbitrary
channel number of 0-2.
EARPHONE Jack
The EARPHONE Jack is in the lower left corner. Insert an ear piece or head set
and the sound comes only from this device.
Closed Captioning :
When available, captions (CC) may be displayed on a selected channel by
pressing the ENTER/CC button on the front panel of thetelevision or on the
remote control unit.
The first press of this button will display the current closed captioning mode. By
continuing to press the ENTER/CC button all possible selections can be made.
While on a Digital channel the possible modes are are Service 1, Service 2,
Service 3, Service 4, Service 5, Service 6, OFF.
While on an Analog channel the possible modes are Caption 1, Caption 2,
Text 1, Text 2, OFF.
Analog and Digital settings are independent and changing one does not alter the
other, except that selecting OFF for one or the other will turn them both OFF.
Once a selection is made it is remembered until you change it.
To turn off captions continue pressing the ENTER/CC button until the OFF mode
is displayed.
Note: Closed captioning may be disabled by the TV Representative in the TV
SETUP MENU.
Note: Unless specially modified, the Video and PC inputs are only accessible
inside the TV.

A bout service levels
A bout service levels
TV's are generally programmed for the required service levels before they are
installed in a hospital. When you replace TV's or when channel numbers change,
reprogramming is needed.
A Level of Service consists of a Channel Map (list of TV channels the user is
permitted to view) along with whether the speaker is enabled or disabled. Each
Level of Service may be assigned a marquee channel (channel which is tuned to
whenever the TV is turned on).
The most common service levels used are levels 1 to 4. Premium 1 and/or
Premium 2 Service Levels are used when "pay per view" movies or events or
when movie channels are offered at an extra charge.
1. Free Service Level
The Free Service Level lets patients watch hospital education and information
channels, without renting the television. The channels over which education and
information are broadcast must be programmed into this level of service.
Entertainment channels are not generally included and therefore are not
programmed into this Free Service Level.
3. Basic Unpaid Service Level
When a patient "self rents", the TV automatically goes to the Basic Unpaid
Service Level. All the entertainment channels available in the hospital, as well as
the education and information channels must be programmed into this service
level.
This confirms that the TV is rented but the rental fee is not paid.
4. Basic Paid Service Level
When you collect the rental fee and press the PAID button on the infrared hand
unit, the TV automatically changes to the Basic Paid Service Level. The Basic
Paid and the Basic Unpaid Service Levels should be assigned the same group of
channels (channel Map).
This confirms that the TV is rented and the rental fee is paid.
5. Premium 1 Service Level
This level of service is available only when special services such as "pay per
view" movies or events or movie channels are offered at an additional cost to the
basic service level. The Premium 1 Service Level is usually made available to
patients who have rented and paid for the basic service level.
2. Locked Service Level
The Locked Service Level does not let the

do so, this message appears.
Contact TV
The free channels, over which education and
Representative
information are broadcast, must be programmed
into this service level so that the non paying
viewer can watch the free education
and information channels.
Locked service makes it possible to cut off rental, to those who continue to "self
rent" and then refuse to pay for this rental service.
Owner's Manual

6. Premium 2 Service Level
This service level, when provided, is in addition to Premium 1. Premium 2
Service Level must include its own selected channel(s) as well as the channel(s)
programmed in Premium 1 Service Level. The Premium 2 Service Level is usually
only made available to patients who have the Basic Paid Service Level and the
Premium 1 Service Level.
IN NON-RENTAL ACCOUNTS, TV MUST BE PROGRAMMED IN THE BASIC UNPAID
OR BASIC PAID SERVICE LEVEL. THIS WILL DISABLE THE SELF RENT FEATURE.

H ow to use the Self Rent Feature
H ow to use Channel Maps
"Self rent" is a valuable feature of the L-10D ELF television. Patients have the
option of enjoying entertainment programming when a TV representative is not
available to carry out the rental transaction.
The "self rent" feature is available when Free is the selected service level and
channels are assigned to the Rental: Basic Unpaid option.
How does a patient "self rent" ?
To "self rent", patients press the MENU button
on the control panel of the TV or press the
MENU button on the infrared hand unit. This
message appears on the TV screen:
When the patient presses ENTER, either on
the infrared hand unit or on the control panel of
the L-10D ELF TV, the service level
automatically changes from Rental: Free to
Rental: Basic Unpaid.
Confirm Rental
Press enter to
confirm
your rental.
Press any other
button
to cancel.
A Channel Map is a list of TV channels which the TV user is permitted to tune to.
The L-10D ELF provides 6 possible Channel Maps.
Only one Channel Map can be assigned to each Service Level but one Channel
Map may be assigned to several Service Levels.
Channel Maps are independent (not additive) so the channels which the user may
view in any given Service Level may be selected exactly as desired. If the same
list of channels are to be viewable in more than one Service Level then the same
channel map should be assigned to both Service Levels. Levels of service which
need to have a different list of channels must be assigned to different Channel
Maps.
The TV Representative can select what Channel Maps are associated with each
Service Level and what channels are in each Map in the Channel Setup section of
the SETUP MENU.
In addition to the 6 Channel Maps the L-10D ELF contains a Master Map. The
Master Map contains a list of all Analog and Digital TV channels which were found
when the TV is programmed (see Auto Scan on page #25). Channels can only be
added or removed from the Master Map by performing an Auto Scan. Channels
can not be added to any Channel Map unless they exist in the Master Map.
From self rent to Rental: Basic Paid
When you collect the rental fee, press Paid on the infrared hand unit or
Press SETUP.
Select CH
Rental: service levels.
Press VOL to change the level of service to Basic Paid.
NOTE: Whenever an Auto Scan is performed the contents of the Master Map may
be changed. After an Auto Scan any channels not listed in the new Master Map
are automatically removed from all Channel Maps. If the Auto Scan found new
channel(s) which were not in the previous Master Map then the new channels will
be automatically added to all Channel Maps.
Channel maps may contain from 0 to the maximum number of channels in the
Master Map. In addition to normal TV channels the L-10D ELF has Composite
Audio/Video and PC (VGA) inputs. These inputs are only accessible inside the TV
unless the TV has been modified. The Audio/Video and PC inputs can be added
to Channel Maps.
Video channel has been assigned the arbitrary channel number of 0-1. The video
input only supports analog signals.
PC Channel has been assigned the arbitrary channel number of 0-2.

A bout the infrared (IR) hand unit
A bout the infrared (IR) hand unit
The infrared unit is hand held and produces an infrared beam that you cannot
see. This beam travels in a straight line, much like the light beam from a flashlight.
The infrared hand unit operates with two "AAA" cell batteries.
In some hospitals, the patient may have the option of using an infrared hand unit
that has fewer buttons than the unit used by the TV representative. With their
infrared hand unit, patients can self rent, change channels and volume levels but
they are not able to select or change the special features of the L-10D. The TV
representative can perform all the patients' functions and can also select and
change the special features that the L-10D ELF TV offers.
How to use the infrared hand unit :
Hold the IR unit flat in the palm of your hand, with the buttons up.
Stand about the length of your arm, back from the television.
Point the infrared hand unit directly at the lower, right corner of the front control
panel on the television. This is important. A misdirected infrared beam can
change programming on a nearby television.
Make the selection on the infrared hand unit by pressing and releasing the
button(s) quickly.
The FREE, PAID, LOCKED buttons work even when the TV is turned off.
How to install and change batteries in the infrared hand unit :
Press down on the ridged area of the battery cover and slide it off.
Install 2 "AAA" batteries in the battery holder. Make sure to match the + end of
each battery to the + end in the battery holder.
Replace the battery cover and turn the remote over.

Although this rating does not signify a program designed specifically for children, most
parents may let younger children watch TV-G programs unattended.
It contains little or no violence, no strong language and little or no sexual dialogue or
situations.
It may be more appropriate for children who have acquired the developmental skills
needed to distinguish between make-believe and reality.
Themes and elements in this program may include mild fantasy violence or comedic
violence that may frighten children under the age of 7.
Therefore, parents may wish to consider the suitability of this program for their very

CONTENT LABELS
TV Parental Guidelines may have one or more letters added to the basic rating to let
parents know when a show contains higher levels of potentially, offensive material.
Note that the content label should be considered in light of its associated rating.
For example, a "V" is likely to designate considerably more intense violence when
associated with a TV-MA rated program than when it is associated with a TV-PG rated
program.
V
Violence
D
Suggestive dialogue
S
Sexual situations
FV
Fantasy violence
L
Coarse or crude indecent language
NOTE
You do not need to block each TV parental guide rating individually.
The TV-Y and TV-Y7 ratings are handled as a group, and the TV-G, TV-PG, TV14, and TV-MA Ratings are handled as a group.
For example, if you choose a program with a TV-14 rating, the V-chip will
automatically also block TV-MA rated programs.
In the same manner, passing (unblocking) the TV-MA rating would automatically
also pass TV-14 rated programs.
Also note that you have the option of passing or blocking programs based on their
content label (D,L,S,V,FV) without necessarily blocking all programs that carry a
specific rating.
For example, you may pass some TV-PG programs, but not those which also
carry a "V"(moderate violence) content label.
In this case, the V-chip would automatically block TV-14 and TV-MA rated
programs which carry the "V".

T V MAINTENANCE
Your ELF television requires little maintenance in order to provide many years of
trouble free service. Each television has been individually inspected on the production
line to ensure safe and reliable operation. However, there is the potential for the
hardware connection between the television and the support arm to become loose or
to disconnect as a result of wear and tear through ongoing uses such as frequent
adjustment of the television to alter the viewing angle or by patients using the
television as an assist in getting in or out of bed (A MISUSE OF THE TELEVISION
THAT WE STRONGLY DISCOURAGE), etc. While it is not likely, a disconnection of
the television from the support arm COULD RESULT IN A SERIOUS PERSONAL
INJURY. Therefore we STRONGLY RECOMMMEND that a visual inspection of the
connection between the television and support arm be performed on a periodic basis,
and particularly if the connection ever appears to be loose. To perform a visual
inspection simply lift the rubber liquid seal (see diagram), this will bring the 8 swivel
assembly screws into view. Should any of the screws be loose or missing the
television should be taken out of service immediately. All screws should have Loctite
applied and then re-tightened. Missing or damaged screws must be replaced. Contact
dealer for replacement screws.
