Your TV is equipped with an internal Closed Caption
decoder, it allows you to view conversations, narration
and sound effects as subtitles on your W. 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 provide0. 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 "[_]" 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 "OO1" and "0C2" services display
subtitles of TV programs superimposed over the
program's picture.
In the Closed Caption system, the "Text1" or "Text2"
services display text that is unrelated to the program

information
• Depending on the number of caption servicesin
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(DigitalCC(ENG),
CC1 and Text1), the closed caption display will
toggle inthis sequence:
• 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 availablefor the next program, or
on another channel,the closed caption service
that is availableis automaticallyselected, and this
serviceappears in parentheses,e.g. "1/3(CC1)".
Closed Caption servicesthat appear in
parentheseswill not be stored inthe CC button's
memory as your last selected service.Only
servicesthat you have selectedwith the CC
button are stored.
Examples:
In a case where there are two closed caption
services provided, (for instance, Digital
CO(ENG) and CO1), and Digital CO(ENG)
is displayed as your current selection, if
Digital CC(ENG) is not broadcast for the next
program, the other closed caption service,
CO1, will be displayed in parentheses.
A closed caption service appears in

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 40 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 77/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
Age
E

music videos, and variety programming.

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.
14+
Over 14 Years: Could contain themes where violence is one of the dominant elements of the
and other information programming;
talk shows,

while related to the development of plot, character or themes, are intended for adult viewing.

situations. Recommended for viewing with parent.

• When the unit is used in a low temperature space (e.g. room, office), the picture may leave trails orappear slightly delayed.
This is not a malfunction, and the unit will recover when the temperature returns to normal.

heater, as this may cause the cabinet to deform and the Liquid Crystal panel to malfunction.

equivalent at no charge to the purchaser for parts or labor for the period(s) set forth below.
This warranty does not apply to any appearance items of the Product nor to the additional excluded item(s) set forth below
nor to any Product the exterior of which has been damaged or defaced, which has been subjected to improper voltage or
other misuse, abnormal service or handling, or which has been altered or modified in design or construction.
In order to enforce the rights under this limited warranty, the purchaser should follow the steps set forth below and provide
proof of purchase to the servicer.
The limited warranty described herein is in addition to whatever implied warranties may be granted to purchasers by law.
ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR USE ARE
LIMITED TO THE PERIOD(S) FROM THE DATE OF PURCHASE SET FORTH BELOW. Some states do not allow limitations
on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
Neither the sales personnel of the seller nor any other person is authorized to make any warranties other than those
described herein, or to extend the duration of any warranties beyond the time period described herein on behalf of Sharp.
The warranties described herein shall be the sole and exclusive warranties granted by Sharp and shall be the sole and
exclusive remedy available to the purchaser. Correction of defects, in the manner and for the period of time described
herein, shall constitute complete fulfillment of all liabilities and responsibilities of Sharp to the purchaser with respect to
the Product, and shall constitute full satisfaction of all claims, whether based on contract, negligence, strict liability or
otherwise. In no event shall Sharp be liable, or in any way responsible, for any damages or defects in the Product which
were caused by repairs or attempted repairs performed by anyone other than an authorized servicer. Nor shall Sharp be
liable or in any way responsible for any incidental or consequential economic or property damage. Some states do not
allow the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusion may not apply to you.
THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS. YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH VARY FROM
STATE TO STATE.
