system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and buitt-up static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper grounding
of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding
electrode.

indications in the battery compartment.
Improper use of batteries can result in chemical leakage or explosion. Be sure to follow the instructions below.
• Do not mix batteries of different types. Different types of batteries have different characteristics.
Do not mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new batteries or cause chemical
leakage in old batteries.
Remove batteries as soon as they are worn out. Chemicals that leak from batteries that come in contact with skin can
cause a rash. If you find any chemical leakage, wipe thoroughly with a cloth.
The batteries supplied with this product may have a shorter life expectancy due to storage conditions.
If you will not be using the remote control unit for an extended period of time, remove batteries from it.

Preparation
Use the remote control unit by pointing it towards the remote control sensor on
the TV. Objects between the remote control unit and the remote control sensor
may prevent proper operation.
• Do not expose the remote control unit to shock.
In addition, do not expose the remote control unit to liquids, and do not place in an area
with high humidity.
• Do not install or place the remote control unit under direct sunlight. The heat may cause
deformation of the remote control unit.
• The remote control unit may not work properly if the remote control sensor on the TV is
under direct sunlight or strong lighting. In such cases, change the angle of the lighting
or the TV, or operate the remote control unit closer to the remote control sensor.
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).
75-ohm coaxial cable (round)
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).

Tune the TV to the desired program.
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.
Digital Closed Caption service is a new caption
service available only on digital TV programs (also
at the discretion of the service provider). It is a more
flexible system than the original Closed Caption
system, because it allows 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 "C1" and "C2" services
display subtitles of TV programs superimposed over
the program's picture. Generally, Closed Captions in
English are transmitted on Cl and Closed Captions in
other languages are transmitted on C2.
In the Closed Caption system, the "Text1" or "Text2"
services display text that is unrelated to the program
being viewed (e.g., weather or news). These services
are also superimposed
over the program currently
being viewed.

• To turn the Closed Caption feature off, select "OFF".
• If the program or video you selected is not closed-captioned, no captions will display on-screen.
If text is not available in your viewing area, a black rectangle may appear on-screen. If this happens, set the Closed
Caption feature to "OFF".
When selecting Closed Captions, the captioning will be delayed approx. 10 seconds.
If no caption signal is received, no captions wilt appear, but the television will remain in the Caption Mode.
Misspellings or unusual characters may occasionally appear during Closed Captioning. This is normal with Closed
Captioning, especially with live programs. This is because during live programs, captions are also entered live. These
transmissions do not allow time for editing.
When Captions are being displayed, on-screen displays, such as volume and mute may be seen but may interfere with
Closed Captions.
Some Cable TV systems and copy protection systems may interfere with the Closed Captioned signal.
If using an indoor antenna or if TV reception is very poor, the Closed Caption Decoder may not appear or may appear with
strange characters or misspelled words. In this case, adjust the antenna for better reception or use an outdoor antenna.

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 SET menu will not be selectable from the menu if you do not first configure your password.
(See page 32 for password setting for parental control,)
• The U.S. has two rating systems for viewing content: movie ratings and TV Parental Guidelines.
• 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,

• The TV 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.
