15. 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.
16. 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.
17. Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can result in fire or electric shock.
18. Never push objects of any kind into this television equipment through cabinet slots as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid
of any kind on the television equipment.
19. Do not attempt to service this television equipment yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you
to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
20. Unplug this television equipment from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel
under the following conditions:
A. When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
B. If liquid has been spilled into the television equipment.
C. If the television equipment has been exposed to rain or water.
D. If the television equipment does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust
only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions as improper adjustment of other
controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to
restore the television equipment to 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.
21. Upon completion of any service or repairs to this television equipment, ask the service technician to
perform routine safety checks to determine that the television is in safe operating condition.
22. When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts
specified by the manufacturer that have the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized
substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other hazards.

Before Operating Your Television
Location
• For normal operation, your TV should be located in an area of the room where cool adequate ventilation
is provided. Do not place the back of the television set in a place where free airflow will be restricted.
• Any magnetic force may disturb the color picture. Make sure that magnets, electric clocks, toys using
magnets or any other magnetic substance, such as iron are kept well away from the TV set.
Power
Your TV operates on 120 Volts, 60 Hz (normal household current) and has a polarized plug. If you are
unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. Should it fail to fit, contact an
electrician. Do not defeat the safety feature of the polarized plug.
Note:
• If the set is not going to be used for a long period, such as during a vacation, unplug the set from the
wall outlet to economize power. (If the TV set is plugged in, a slight current still flows, even with the
POWER BUTTON in the OFF position.)
• Lines and other noise may appear in TV broadcast images when an FM tuner or radio is located near
the TV and both radio and TV broadcasts are being received. Should such noise appear, turn off the
radio.
• If you are listening to an AM broadcast, turn the TV off. AM broadcast signals may not be received
due to interference from the TV.
•
Before using the television, prepare the Remote Control
To use the remote control, insert batteries first.
Inserting the batteries
Battery
Cover
Pull up
• With your thumbnail, pull up the slit as indicated by the arrow to remove the battery cover. Insert two
batteries (size “AA”). Be sure to match the battery m/, terminals with the m/, marks inside the
compartment.
Antenna Connections
Antennas
• The antenna requirements for good color television reception are more important than those for black
& white television reception. For this reason, a good quality outdoor antenna is strongly recommended.
The following is a brief explanation of the type of connections that are provided with the various
antenna systems:
1. A 75-ohm system is generally a round cable with
F-type connector that can easily be attached to
a terminal without tools (not supplied).
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 ADAPTOR (not supplied).

CABLE TV (CATV) CONNECTION
• A 75 ohm coaxial cable connector is built into the set for easy hookup. When connecting the 75 ohm
coaxial cable to the set, screw the 75 ohm cable to the COAXIAL CABLE CONNECTOR.
• Some cable TV companies offer “premium pay channels”. Since the signals of these premium pay
channels are scrambled, a cable TV converter/descrambler is generally provided to the subscriber by
the cable TV company. This converter/descrambler is necessary for normal viewing of the scrambled
channels. (Set your TV on channel 3 or 4. Typically one of these channels is used. If this is unknown,
consult your cable TV company.) For more specific instructions on installing cable TV, consult your
cable TV company. One possible method of utilizing the converter/descrambler provided by your
cable TV company is explained below.
Please note: RF switch equipped with position A/B (not provided) is required.
“A” position on the RF switch (not supplied) : You can view all unscrambled channels using the TV’s
channel keys.
“B” position on the RF switch (not supplied) : You can view the scrambled channels via the converter/
descrambler using the converter’s channel keys.

Parent Control (V-CHIP Operation)
H V-CHIP
• This function allows you to restrict TV programs and also allows you to control TV usage based on
FCC data. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes that may
be harmful.
• Restriction of TV programs includes two characters that contain information about the program’s MPAA
rating and the TV Parental Guidelines. MPAA is restricted by age. TV Parental Guidelines are restricted
by age and contents.
• Since a TV program may use either the MPAA rating or the TV Guidelines you should adjust both for
complete control.

set which in turn saves you money and minimizes the impact on
the environment. When this feature is turned on, it reduces the
brightness of the TV to a level that consumes approximately 20
percent less energy than when the feature is turned off.
The reduction in brightness will be less noticeable under low

Operation of Universal Remote Control
•
Universal Remote Control
With the purchase of your television set you
also have received the latest innovation in
remote control technology. With its easy-to-use
push button keyboard, your Remote can
control your television set and most infrared
remote controlled VCRs, cable TV converters
and DVDs as well.
•
“Identifying” VCRs, cable TV converters
and DVDs
Your Remote Control has been set at the
factory to operate your TV and many remote
controlled VCRs, cable TV converters and
DVDs. However, in some cases an easy onetime set-up step may be necessary before the
Remote will operate accessory VCRs, cable
TV converters and DVDs.
• In this set-up step, the Remote locates and
memorizes the remote control transmitter code
for the VCR, cable TV converters and DVDs.
• Once “identified”, the Remote sends proper
signals to operate your accessory.
• This identifying step will not have to be
repeated until power to the Remote is
interrupted due to a battery failure.
•
Using your remote control with a VCR
Once you make certain the Remote Control
has “identified” your remote controlled VCR or
DVD, the Remote is ready to operate your unit.
The various VCR or DVD function buttons on
the Remote will not operate your VCR or DVD
if those features are not already found on your
unit.
• All VCR buttons will operate whether the
Remote is in TV or VCR modes.
• For detailed information on the use of the VCR
or DVD, refer to the operation manual of the
VCR or DVD.
Note:
• Depending on the model year produced, brand
and type of VCR, cable TV converter and DVD,
some models may not be compatible with the
remote control.
• Some brands may not enable channel
selection until the ENTER is pressed. In such
case, try the following.
Example:
When you select channel 24,
(1) Press REMOTE KEYPAD “2”.
(2) Press REMOTE KEYPAD “4”.
(3) Press ENTER.
For detailed information on the use of the
Cable TV converter Box refer to their operating
manuals.
•
Using your Remote with your TV
After installing the batteries, set the CATV/
DVD-TV/VCR on the Remote to the TV
