Operating Remote Control
Effective Range of Remote Controls
Before attempting to operate either one of the remote controls,
install the batteries as shown below.
Aim the remote control at your TV’s remote control sensor.
The remote control produces an invisible (infrared) beam that
travels in a straight line much as the beam of a flashlight. For
this reason, when operating the remote control, you must
point it directly at the front of the TV without objects
between that can block the infrared light beam.
Installing/Replacing Batteries
1 Turn the remote control face down.
2 Press down on the ridged area of each battery cover and slide
it off.
Aim remote at your TV’s remote
control sensor.

Custom Picture Memory for Input Channels
The channel numbers you select to see signals from
components (like a VCR) that are connected to the INPUT
jacks on the back of the TV are called input channels.
Selecting channel 90 lets you see the signal coming from
whatever component is attached to the S-VIDEO connector,
channel 91 lets you see the signal from the INPUT 1 jacks,
and channel 92 lets you see the signal from the INPUT 2
jacks. Your TV is equipped with a custom picture memory
for these input channels. When the TV is tuned to one of
these channels (90, 91 ,92), you can change the picture
settings for that component’s signal as desired without
changing the settings of any other channel. This is very
useful because you will be able to adjust for the best
picture from each of your components and the TV will
remember those settings automatically the next time you
tune that input channel.

Receiving Stereo Broadcasts
Receiving SAP Broadcasts
Your TV is fully capable of reproducing stereo sound from
TV stations transmitting stereo sound in your area. All you
have to do to enjoy stereo sound is to make sure the TV’s
STEREO/SAP function is set to STEREO so the TV can receive
stereo broadcasts.
Some TV stations that broadcast stereo also broadcast
another audio program called SAP. SAP stands for Second
Audio Program and is sometimes used to broadcast a
second audio track for a bilingual movie.
Normally this function can be left in the STEREO mode.
Your TV will then automatically reproduce either stereo or
monaural sound, whichever is broadcast.
In some fringe viewing areas, however, the stereo signal
may not be strong enough for quality reception. The signal
may drift, or the reproduction may become noisy. Should
that occur, change the STEREO/SAP function to the MONO
mode to receive clearer, cleaner sound.
Helpful Hint: Some television stations transmit a “pilot” signal that
makes your TV think it’s receiving stereo, even though the broadcast
signal is monaural. The “pilot” signal will make the stereo indicator
appear on the screen next to the channel number, however, you will not
be able to hear stereo sound. If the stereo indicator appears but you can
not hear stereo sound, check with the television station to inquire
whether the program being broadcast is in stereo or monaural audio.
1 Press the MENU button repeatedly to select the AUDIO MENU
You can then listen to the SAP audio by changing the
STEREO/SAP function to its SAP setting as explained below.
Although SAP audio is transmitted with the stereo signal,
it is not broadcast in stereo. That means the SAP audio
will be monaural sound.
Your TV will reproduce SAP audio until you change
channels.
Video Menu
Audio Menu
Resetting the Audio Function to Receive Stereo
with or without remote
Because SAP is only available with stereo broadcasts, the
TV’s STEREO/SAP function must be in the STEREO mode to see
if SAP audio is available. After you have set the
STEREO/SAP function to the STEREO mode, your TV will
display the word STEREO next to the channel number when
stereo audio is being received. If SAP audio is also
available, your TV will display an asterisk (*) after the
word STEREO (STEREO*).

Expanded Stereo
Your TV includes an Expanded Stereo feature which adds
greater depth and dimension to stereo broadcasts. Your TV
electronically increases the audio separation perception of
the speakers so you perceive an “expanded” more spacious
stereo sound effect.
Although you can easily turn the expanded stereo feature
on and off as desired, you may prefer to leave it turned on.
That way your TV will automatically process and expand
the stereo signals whenever a stereo broadcast is received
(or whenever a stereo tape is played through a stereo VCR
connected to the TV’s audio/video jacks labeled INPUT).
Because this feature expands stereo sound, it processes
only stereo signals. If a TV program is broadcast in mono
instead of stereo, your TV will automatically reproduce
monaural audio. You will not be able to hear Expanded
Stereo because expansion has no effect on monaural audio.
Stereo expansion enhances the ambience of music and
program material. Dramatic effects of spatial enhancement
can be experienced with music. Talk shows with
background crowd noise also benefit from expansion by
engulfing the listener in a wider sound field than would be
experienced without expanded stereo. The effect will vary
with program material.
The perception of greater stereo separation is created by
cancelling the cross-coupled sound from the right speaker
that arrives at the left ear (and the left speaker that arrives
at the right ear). Like stereo headphones, stereo expansion
isolates the left and right signals that arrive at the ears. As
a result, the speakers seem to be farther away from the TV.
Notes: The Expanded Stereo feature will have no effect unless the
program is broadcast in stereo.
When the Expanded Stereo feature is turned on, some sound will be
heard from each speaker regardless of the BALANCE control setting.

Parental Control
The PARENTAL CTRL and CHAN CTRL functions let you lock out
any channels between 1 and 99 that you choose so they
cannot be viewed by your children.
Channels that have been locked out can be viewed only
when the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to OFF. This can
only be done with the remote control–it can not be changed
with the buttons on the front of the TV. Therefore, after
you turn on PARENTAL CTRL, you simply hide the remote
control so that your children can not watch the locked-out
channels.
The locked-out channels will remain unviewable even if
the TV is unplugged or the channels are autoprogrammed
again. The only way to view locked-out channels is to use
the remote control to set the PARENTAL CTRL function to OFF.

Refer to the chart at the right to find the code number that

may need to try each one separately until you find the one
that works.

VCR). You can program each button to control a different
VCR.

enter the code number for your brand of VCR.
4 Release the VCR1 button and point the remote at the VCR.
Press the POWER button to test the code number. If nothing
happens, try pressing VCR1 or VCR2•LD (whichever button
you are programming). If the right number was entered,
the VCR should turn on. If the VCR does not react to the
remote, repeat steps 1 thru 4 with another code number.
Note: Some older VCRs do not have an POWER switch on their remote
controls and cannot be turned on and off remotely. If you have this
type of VCR, you can test the code number by pressing the CHANNEL
button instead of the POWER button. Make sure the VCR is already
turned on when you test the code number.
Operating Notes: After the remote is programmed, it will turn on the
VCR whenever you press VCR1 (or VCR2•LD) and then POWER. Some VCRs
turn on automatically when you press VCR1 or VCR2•LD. You’ll be able to
control the VCR whenever the remote is in the “VCR mode”. To put the
remote in the “VCR mode”, press the VCR1 or VCR2•LD button (depending
on which button you programmed). The other VCR buttons (such as
PLAY, PAUSE, STOP, REWIND, FF, and RECORD) will control the VCR when
the remote is in the “VCR mode”. Pressing these function buttons may
automatically switch the remote from “TV mode” to “VCR mode”. To
turn off the VCR, press VCR1 (or VCR2•LD), then POWER. To change
channels on the VCR, press VCR1 (or VCR2•LD), then CHANNEL up or down.
This remote will control the basic functions of compatible VCRs. It will
not be able to control the advanced functions of all brands of VCRs. You
may have to reprogram your remote if you change its batteries.

operates on a different remote transmitting code.
If neither of your VCRs have switchable code capabilities, you still may
be able to use the VCR1/VCR2•LD feature to control two VCRs of the same
brand since many older VCRs use remote codes that are different than
newer VCRs. You may want to experiment to see what works with your
particular VCRs.

Accessory Cables
General Cable Information
Antenna (or cable-TV) connections are made with either
coaxial antenna cable or twin-lead cable. Coaxial cables
are shielded so they are less susceptible to hum or
interference from adjacent cables.
The following accessories are available from most ProScan
dealers and electronics supply stores in case you want to
position your components farther apart or need additional
cables.
Antenna Cables
Slip-on Connector
Screw-on Connector
Round 75-ohm coaxial cable
AH037 (3-ft)
Flat 300-ohm twin-lead cable
Most audio/video connections between components can be
made with shielded audio and video cables that have RCAtype phono connectors.
Gold-Tipped Cables
AH065G (6-ft)
AH066G (10-ft)
Screw-on Cable attaches to
the round antenna connectors
(called 75-ohm F-type) on
the back of your VCR or TV.
The ends screw onto the
connectors for a secure
connection.
Push-on Cable attaches to
the round antenna connectors
(called 75-ohm F-type) on
the back of your VCR or TV.
Ends push on for a quick
connection.
Standard Audio/Video Cable with
RCA-type phono plugs
Audio/Video Cables
Color-Coded Jacks
The jacks on the TV’s monitor panel are color-coded for
ease of use. The VIDEO jacks are yellow, the right AUDIO
jacks are red, and the left AUDIO jacks are white. When
connecting components to each other, be sure that you
always connect left outputs to left inputs and right outputs
to right inputs. If a component has only one output
(mono), connect it to the R/MONO INPUT jack.
Gold-Tipped Cables
AH069G (3-ft)
AH070G (5-ft)
To connect S-VHS (Super-VHS) components, an S-Video
cable is required.
S-Video Cable
Gold-Tipped Cables
AH075G (6-ft)
Audio/Video Cable
Shielded cable for
connecting AUDIO and VIDEO
jacks. Has an RCA-type
phono plug on each end.
Monaural VCR Dubbing
Cable
Double cable that lets you
connect the VIDEO and AUDIO
jacks of two VHS VCRs to
duplicate tapes. Can also be
used to connect a VCR to
your TV. Cable is colorcoded and shielded. Has
RCA-type phono plugs on
each end.
Gold-Plated Jacks and Gold-Tipped Cables
Your ProScan monitor panel is equipped with gold-plated
jacks. The gold plating helps prevent oxidation of contacts
which provides much less signal loss than conventional
contacts. A complete line of gold-tipped cables is
available to help you obtain optimum performance from
your equipment.
Stereo VCR Dubbing Cable
Triple cable that lets you
connect the VIDEO and AUDIO
jacks of stereo components.

Stereo Audio Cable
Double gold-tipped cable
generally used for connecting
stereo audio components.
S-Video Cable has multipin
connectors on each end for
connecting S-Video
components to your TV.
When connecting an SVideo component to the
S-VIDEO jack on your TV,
remember to also connect the
left and right audio cables to
the INPUT 1 jacks because the
S-Video cable carries only
the picture, not the sound.

Tips to Read Before Connecting Components
Compatible Components
Plugging in Power Cords
A wide variety of compatible Video Cassette Recorders
(VCRs), camcorders, laserdisc players, and audio
components are available. Check with your dealer for
details.
Do not plug any power cord into a wall outlet until you are
finished making connections.
Other brands of components can also be connected to your
TV. Refer to the component’s owner’s manual for the
manufacturer’s recommended hookup instructions.
Many components have “convenience outlets” on their
back panels so you can plug power cords from other
components into a “convenience outlet” instead of a wall
outlet. Usually these outlets will be labeled either
“switched” or “unswitched”.
Positioning Components on Shelves
If the outlet is labeled “switched”, that means power to the
outlet will be switched off when the component’s power
button is switched off.
To ensure the best performance from your components,
follow these general guidelines when arranging them on
the shelves of a component compartment.
If the outlet is labeled “unswitched”, that means power will
always be available at that outlet, even when the
component is turned off.
Amplifiers, receivers, and VCRs generate heat during
operation, so special care should be taken when arranging
these components in the compartment. Do not stack an
amplifier (or receiver) and a VCR directly on top of each
other because each component generates heat and may not
provide the best performance if stacked together. Do not
stack other components directly on top of an amplifier,
receiver, or VCR.
Depending on the size of your system, you may prefer to
use an extension cord or a “multiple adapter” to get enough
outlets for all your components.
If you include both an amplifier (or receiver) and a VCR,
put the amplifier on the top shelf and put the VCR on the
bottom shelf. Leave at least four inches of clearance above
the amplifier (or receiver) and at least two inches of
clearance above other components.
If you have just a VCR and no amplifier (or receiver),
position the VCR on the bottom shelf. Do not stack
anything else directly on top of the VCR. Leave at least
two inches of clearance between the VCR and the shelf
above it.
Turn Off Power Before Connecting Components
Always turn off power to all components before you
connect or disconnect any cables. This will protect your
components from possible electrical surges that could
damage your equipment.
This is a good practice for all your audio and video
components – TVs, VCRs, audio systems, computers, etc.
Position Cables to Avoid Hum
The possibility of picking up hum (interference noise) in
the audio/video cables will be reduced if you keep them
away from the back of the TV. Route the cables to the
sides of the TV’s back panel instead of straight down the
middle.
All cable plugs should be firmly seated in the jacks where
they connect to the equipment. If a plug is not connected
firmly, audio hum or smeared video may result.
If your antenna cable is flat twin-lead cable, try to keep it
away from the audio/video cables as much as possible.
Excess flat, twin-lead cable should be cut off instead of
coiled behind the TV. Round, coaxial, antenna cable is
usually shielded and can be coiled or placed next to
audio/video cables without causing interference.
Position Speakers to Avoid Interference
Placing external speakers with unshielded magnets too
close to the TV may result in the speaker magnets affecting
the quality of the picture. Such speakers should be located
at least eight inches away.
If unshielded speakers are too close to the TV, colored
streaks will appear along the sides of the picture. If this
happens, turn off the TV for several minutes while moving
the speakers farther away. Then turn the TV back on.
The ProScan SPK060 speakers are completely shielded
and can be positioned next to the TV without affecting the
picture.
35
Tips Before
Connecting
Some VCRs may cause interference in TV sets if they are
placed too close to the TV. The ProScan cabinets have a
built-in interference barrier to help eliminate this type of
interference. If you are using another type of cabinet and
interference is present when using your VCR, try placing
the VCR on the bottom shelf or try plugging the TV and
VCR power cords into different wall sockets.
The power cords on your ProScan components are
“polarized” (one blade is wider than the other). Be sure
the extension cord or multiple adapter is also polarized.
The plug should fit in the outlet only one way.

fixed level audio and video
output from whatever is displayed on the TV screen
(except signal from S-VIDEO connector). Provide standard
audio and video signals suitable for recording. Can be
used for several applications such as:
• VCR editing with two or three VCRs (page 44).
• Recording TV programs onto a camcorder (page 45).
• Recording cable-TV programs onto a VCR that is not
cable compatible (page 44).
• Recording audio onto an audio cassette tape recorder
(page 46).
Notes: Remember that the signal coming out of these jacks is
whatever you see (and/or hear) on the TV screen. So, whatever
you want to record must be displayed on the TV screen during
recording. The small inset picture from the picture-in-picture
feature and any menus (video, audio, or setup) or displays such as
clock and channel that are on the screen can not be recorded.
To record from an S-VHS component connected to the S-VIDEO
connector, you must also connect the video cable to the VIDEO
INPUT 1 jack and then select channel 91 on the TV screen.

Remember to tune the VCR to
the output channel of the
converter box (usually 3 or 4).
Most cable companies that require use of a converter/decoder
box only require the box for scrambled premium channels
like HBO or Showtime. All the other cable-TV channels can
usually be viewed without the converter box. Therefore, by
using a signal splitter, you can send the incoming cable-TV
signals directly to the TV and also thru the converter/decoder
box and VCR as shown above.
You can easily switch between the signals coming into the
ANT A jack and the ANT B jack by pressing the ANTENNA button
on the remote control. The channel numbers will change
colors to let you know which antenna signals you are
watching. When the numbers are blue, you are seeing the
ANT A signals. When the numbers are yellow, you are seeing
the ANT B signals.
The cable-TV channels that are not scrambled can then be
seen whenever the TV is receiving the ANT A signals. The
cable-TV channels that are scrambled can then be seen thru
the converter box and then thru the VCR whenever the TV is
receiving the ANT B signals. Most VCRs will feed the signal
thru their antenna jacks even when the VCR is turned off.
This allows you to watch scrambled channels from the
converter box without having to turn on the VCR.
This connection can be useful because it will let you record a
scrambled channel on the VCR at the same time you are
watching a non-scrambled channel thru the ANT A jack on the
TV.
For picture-in-picture viewing, be sure to also connect the
audio/video cables from the VCR to the TV as shown on
pages 43-44. The VCR must be turned on and tuned to the
output channel of the cable box (usually 2, 3, or 4) for
picture-in-picture viewing.

Cable-TV Operation
Your new TV is designed to receive up to 181 channels in
the U.S.A. including 125 non-scrambled cable channels
(see chart at lower right). To use this TV with a cable-TV
system, confirm that the cable-TV system is properly
connected to your TV. Since cable systems vary, you may
wish to consult your local cable-TV company for additional
information.
If your cable-TV company follows EIA/NCTA channelidentification standards, most of the channels offered by
your cable company will be identified by channel numbers
that are identical to those on your TV. For example, if your
cable-TV system has programs on cable channel 20, you
can choose this channel by selecting channel 20 on your
TV.
If your cable company offers cable channels 90, 91, or 92
you can tune them by selecting the TV channels shown
below.
If your cable
company offers
this cable
channel:
Tune your TV
to this channel:
Some cable companies offer “premium-pay” channels in
which the signal is scrambled. Descrambling these signals
for normal viewing requires the use of a descrambler
device (cable box) which is generally provided by the
cable company.
How you connect the cable box to your TV depends upon
whether or not the cable box can be controlled by remote
control. The TV’s remote can also control most brands of
cable boxes, so if your cable box is remote controllable,
you will want to connect it as shown in Diagram B on
page 39. Instructions for programming the TV’s remote to
control the cable box are on page 41.
If your cable box cannot be controlled by remote control,
you will still be able to remotely switch between a
scrambled channel and unscrambled channels with the
connection shown in Diagram C on page 39 or in
Diagram D on page 40.

Some cable-TV companies do not follow the EIA/NCTA
standards and instead assign their own channel
identification. For example, some use the standard
broadcast channel numbers (2-13) for channels 2-13, but
identify their other channels with letters. If your cable
company does not follow the EIA/NCTA standards, ask
them for a cross reference that shows to which channels
you should tune your TV to receive their cable-TV
channels.
Not all cable-TV channels will be active on your particular
cable-TV system. Also some cable companies may require
the use of a decoder with their cable-TV system. Consult
your cable company or local dealer for details.

VHF is only counted once in total channel count because you can
receive channels 2-13 on both “off-air” and “cable” channels.
Therefore the total channel count for “off-air” and “cable” is 181
channels (68+125-12=181).
*** Channels 95, 96, and 97 are not applicable in Canada. Therefore
the total number of channels for Canada is 178 (68+122-12=178).

Special Recording onto VCR
This connection only allows you to record on the VCR
whatever is currently being displayed on the TV screen
except for menus and special effects. This is not a
common application for recording with your VCR, but you
may find it useful in certain situations. You’ll also be able
to record signals from another VCR (or similar device) that
is connected to the TV’s INPUT 1 or INPUT 2 jacks.
The TV must remain turned on during recording. If you
change channels on the TV, the channel change will be
recorded on the VCR tape unless you pause the VCR
during recording.
Because your TV is cable-compatible, this application
may be used to record cable-TV programs from the TV
onto a VCR that is not cable-compatible.
You may also want to use this connection to dub or edit
VCR tapes with two or three VCRs. By connecting one
VCR (or camcorder) to the INPUT 1 jacks and another VCR
(or camcorder) to the INPUT 2 jacks, you’ll be able to
selectively edit and record whatever is playing on the TV
screen onto a third VCR (or camcorder) connected as
shown here to the SELECT OUT jacks.
If you connect a surveillance system to your monitor,
you’ll be able to record what the camcorder is displaying
on the TV screen by connecting a VCR (or camcorder) to
the SELECT OUT jacks as shown here. To see the signal from
a device connected to the INPUT 1 jacks, select channel 91.
Select channel 92 to see the signal from a device connected
to the INPUT 2 jacks.
To see the signal from a device connected to the INPUT 1
jacks, select channel 91. Select channel 92 to see the
signal from a device connected to the INPUT 2 jacks.
Note: Signals from the S-VIDEO connector do not come through the
SELECT OUT jacks. To record from an S-VHS component, remember to
also connect the regular video cable to the VIDEO INPUT 1 jack and then
tune to channel 91.
Menus (video, audio, setup), displays like clock and channel, and the
inset picture-in-picture do not come through the SELECT OUT jacks.

Your TV can also be used as a display device for many
laserdisc players, video games, and home computers. If
your game or computer has a normal NTSC (American
Standard) video output, it can be connected directly to
either the INPUT 1 or INPUT 2 jacks on the TV as shown here.
If the computer or other device has monaural audio output
(only one AUDIO OUT jack instead of L and R), connect it to
the TV’s R/MONO jack. This will enable the TV to
reproduce the sound through both the left and right
speakers.
To View Signals From Component
If you connected the component to the TV’s INPUT 1 jacks, press
the remote’s TV button (to address the TV), then 9, then 1. This

Connecting External Speakers
Connecting Speakers to Back of TV
If you connect an Amplifier or Receiver to your TV, you
can connect the speakers to the Amplifier/Receiver instead
of the TV.
If you do not connect an Amplifier or Receiver to your TV,
you can connect external speakers to the back of the TV to
enhance sound from the TV.
The speaker switch on the back of the TV changes how the
TV’s amplifier drives the speakers, allowing you to use the
external speakers two ways:
To enhance the sound from the TV’s speakers, place the
speakers in the front of the viewing area (usually beside
the TV), and slide the speaker switch to EXT. This provides
full power to the external speakers for a “fuller” sound and
turns off the TV’s internal speakers.
The diagram below shows how to connect external
speakers to the terminals on the back of the TV.

the speaker wire and twist the wire core.

while inserting the wire core into the hole. Be sure to

3 Release the lever.
EXTERNAL
SPEAKERS
To obtain a “surround sound” effect, place the external
speakers in the rear of the viewing area, and slide the
speaker switch to INT/EXT SURR. This provides full power to
the TV’s internal speakers for the front sound and a
surround signal to the rear speakers. Do not use the
SPK060 speakers for this type of setup. They are designed
to be used close to the TV.

Notes: After releasing the lever, pull gently on the wire and check that it
is connected securely to its terminal.
Do not allow the wire core to protrude from its terminal or contact other
wires or terminals. If the cores of two wires touch each other, damage to
components could result.
Important: When connecting the speaker wire, make sure you connect
the (+) terminal on the TV to the (+) terminal on the speaker. One side
of the speaker wire is usually marked with a white stripe to help you
connect (+) to (+) and (–) to (–). If the (+) and (–) terminals are not
matched properly, the speakers will not be “in phase” causing reduction
in low frequencies (bass).
Caution: Do not connect external
speakers to more than one audio
source at a time. You can connect a
set of speakers to either the TV or the
amplifier but not to both at the same
time. If you connect the same
speakers to both the TV and the
amplifier (or to more than one set of
terminals), you will probably damage
your equipment.

Helpful Hints: External speakers placed next to the TV will sound
better the higher quality they are. Very efficient small “bookshelf” or
“compact” speakers will give good results for surround-sound use.
Surround effect can often be improved by experimenting with rear
speaker placement.

If you connect an amplifier or receiver to your TV as
described on page 46, connect the speakers to the
amplifier/receiver instead of the TV. Sound from the TV
will then come through the amplifier/receiver and the TV’s
internal speakers. If desired, you can turn off the TV’s
internal speakers with the SPEAKERS ON/OFF function
described on page 12.
The diagram below shows how to connect external
speakers to the speaker terminals on the back of a typical
