SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS - Read before operating equipment
This product was designed and manufactured to meet strict quality and
safety standards. There are, however, some installation and operation precautions which you should be particularly aware of.
11. Power-Cord Protection - Power supply cords should be routed so
that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed
upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords and plugs,
convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the
appliance.
12. Cleaning - The appliance should be cleaned only as recommended
by the manufacturer.
13. Power Lines - An outdoor antenna should be located away from
power lines.
14. Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna is connected to
the receiver, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built up static
charges.
Section 810 of the National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984,
provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mats
and supporting structure grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding connectors, location of antennadischarge unit, connection to grounding electrodes and requirements for the grounding electrode. See Fig. below.
15. Non-use Periods - The power cord of the appliance should be
unplugged from the outlet when left unused for a long period of time.
16. Object and Liquid Entry - Care should be taken so that objects do not
fall and liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through openings.
17. Damage Requiring Service - The appliance should be serviced by
qualified service personnel when:
A. The power supply cord or the plug has been damaged; or
B. Objects have fallen, or liquid has been spilled into the appliance;
or
C. The appliance has been exposed to rain; or
D. The appliance does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a
marked change in performance; or
E. The appliance has been dropped, or the enclosure damaged.
18. Servicing - The user should not attempt to service the appliance
beyond that described in the operating instructions. All other servicing should be referred to qualified service personnel.
1.
Read Instructions - All the safety and operating instructions should
be read before the appliance is operated.
2. Retain Instructions - The safety and operating instructions should
be retained for future reference.
3. Heed Warnings - All warnings on the appliance and in the operating
instructions should be adhered to.
4. Follow Instructions - All operating and use instructions should be
followed.
5. Water and Moisture - The appliance should not be used near water
- for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub,
in a wet basement or near a swimming pool, etc.
6. Carts and Stands - The appliance should be used only with a cart or
stand that is recommended by the manufacturer.
6A.
An appliance and cart combination should be moved
with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combination to
overturn.
6B. Tilt/Stability - All televisions must comply with recommended international global safety standards for tilt and stability properties of its

could unsuspectingly fall from the top of the set and cause
product damage and/or personal injury.
7. Wall or Ceiling Mounting - The appliance should be mounted to a
wall or ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer.
8. Ventilation - The appliance should be situated so that its location or
position does not interfere with its proper ventilation. For example,
the appliance should not be situated on a bed, sofa, rug, or similar
surface that may block the ventilation openings; or, placed in a builtin installation, such as a bookcase or cabinet that may impede the
flow of air through the ventilation openings.
9. Heat - The appliance should be situated away from heat sources
such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
10. Power Sources - The appliance should be connected to a power supply only of the type described in the operating instructions or as
marked on the appliance.

UNDERSTANDING THE SMARTLOCK™ CONTROL
T
he SmartLock feature is an integrated circuit that receives and
processes data sent by broadcasters, or other program providers,
that contain program content advisories. When programmed by the
viewer, a TV with SmartLock can
respond to the content advisories
and block program content that may
be found objectionable (such as
offensive language, violence, sexual
situations, etc.). This is a great feature to censor the type of viewing
children may watch.
Over the next few pages you’ll
learn how to block channels and
certain rated programming. Below
is a brief explanation of some terms
and ratings you will find in the
SmartLock feature.
SmartLock offers various
BLOCKING OPTION controls
from which to choose:
MASTER DISABLE: This is what
might be called the "master switch"
for SmartLock. When in the ON
position, ALL blocking/censoring is
turned off (or disabled). When in the
OFF position, ALL blocking based
on specifically blocked settings will
take place.
BLOCK UNRATED: ALL unrated
programs based on the Movie
Ratings or Parental (TV) Guidelines
can be blocked if this feature is set
to ON and the MASTER DISABLE
feature is set to OFF.
BLOCK NO RATINGS: ALL programming with NO content advisory
data can be blocked if this feature is
set to ON and the MASTER DISABLE feature is set to OFF.
After an access code has been programmed, you can block up to 5
individual channels. But more than
just blocking channels, certain
blocking options exist which will
block programming based on ratings
patterned by the Motion Pictures
Association of America and TV
broadcasters. (See description of ratings on this page.)

third audio channel SAP can be
heard apart from the current TV

free to use SAP for any number

TIPS IF SOMETHING ISN'T WORKING
P
lease make these simple
checks before calling for service. These tips can save you time
and money since charges for TV
installation and adjustment of
customer controls are not covered under your warranty.
CAUTION: A video source (such as a video game, Compact Disc Interactive - CDI, or
TV information channel) which shows a constant non-moving pattern on the TV screen,
can cause picture tube damage. When your TV is continuously used with such a source
the pattern of the non-moving portion of the game (CDI, etc.) could leave an image
permanently on the picture tube. When not in use, turn the video source OFF.
Regularly alternate the use of such video sources with normal TV viewing.
No Power
• Check the TV power cord. Unplug the TV, wait 10 seconds, then reinsert plug into
outlet and push POWER button again.
• Check that outlet is not on a wall switch. Be sure fuse is not blown on AC Power strip.
No Picture
• Check antenna connections. Are they properly secured to the TV's 75Ω plug?
• Check the TUNER control for CABLE or ANTENNA setting.
• Check Audio/Video Input jack connections if using a VCR or other external device.
No Sound
• Check the VOLUME buttons.
• Check the MUTE button on the remote control.
• Check Audio/Video Input jack connections if using a VCR or other external device.
Remote Does Not

Channel or No
Channels Above 13
• Check batteries. Replace with AA Heavy Duty (Zinc Chloride) or Alkaline batteries
if necessary.
• Clean the remote and the remote sensor window on the TV.
• Check the TV power cord. Unplug the TV, wait 10 seconds, then reinsert plug into
outlet and push POWER button again. Be sure fuse is not blown on AC Power strip if
one is being used.
• Check to be sure TV outlet is not on a wall switch.
• Repeat channel selection.
• Add desired channel numbers (CHANNEL control) into TV memory.
• Check to be sure the TUNER control is set to the CABLE option.
Cleaning and Care
• To avoid possible shock hazard be sure the TV is unplugged from the electrical outlet before cleaning.
• When cleaning the TV screen take care not to scratch or damage the screen surface (avoid wearing jewelry or using
anything abrasive). Wipe the front screen with a clean cloth dampened with water. Use even, easy, vertical strokes when
cleaning.
• Gently wipe the cabinet surfaces with a clean cloth or sponge dampened in a solution of cool clear water. Use a clean
dry cloth to dry the wiped surfaces.
• Never use thinners, insecticide sprays, or other chemicals on or near the cabinet, as they might cause permanent marring
of the cabinet finish.

GLOSSARY OF TELEVISION TERMS
Coaxial Cable • A single solid antenna wire normally matched
with a metal plug (F-type) end connector that screws (or pushes)
directly onto a 75 Ohm input found on the Television or VCR.
Programming • The procedure of adding or deleting channel
numbers into the Television’s memory circuits. In this way the
Television “remembers’’ only the locally available or desired
channel numbers and skips over any unwanted channel numbers.
Closed Caption • Broadcast standard which allows you to read
the voice content of television programs on the TV screen.
Designed to help the hearing impaired this feature uses onscreen
"text boxes" to show dialogue and conversations while the TV
program is in progress.
Remote Sensor Window • A window or opening found on the
Television control panel through which infrared remote control
command signals are received.
Direct Audio/Video Inputs • Located on the rear of the TV
these connectors (RCA phono type plug) are used for the input
of audio and video signals. Designed for use with VCRs (or other
accessories) in order to receive higher picture resolution and
offer sound connection options.
Setup Mode • Automatic feature control settings made by the
TV. Designed for first time setup and use. Settings for signal
connections (antenna or cable TV), plus channel program
memory are held in the TV's memory (even if the set is
unplugged and moved to a new location.)
Identify • Method by which a remote control searches and finds
an operating code for another product (such as a VCR or Cable
Converter). Once the code has been "identified" then the TV
remote can operate and send commands to the other product.
Second Audio Program (SAP) • Another or additional audio
channel provided for in the Multichannel Television Sound
(MTS) broadcast standard. The most frequently proposed use
for SAP is the simultaneous bilingual broadcast of TV program
material.
On Screen Displays (OSD) • Refers to the wording or messages
generated by the television (or VCR) to help the user with specific feature controls (color adjustment, programming, etc.).
Menu • An onscreen listing of feature controls shown on the
Television screen that are made available for user adjustments.
Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) • The broadcast standard that allows for stereo sound to be transmitted with the TV
picture.
Status • Allows the user to quickly confirm what channel number is currently being viewed. Status can also be used to clear
the Television of on screen displays or information (rather than
waiting for the displays to “time out” or automatically disappear from the screen).
Twin Lead Wire • The more commonly used name for the two
strand 300 Ohm antenna wire used with many indoor and outdoor antenna systems. In many cases this type of antenna wire
requires an additional adapter (or balun) in order to connect to
the 75 Ohm Input terminals designed into the more recent
Televisions and VCRs.
PIP (Picture In Picture) • Allows viewing of different programs
(or picture sources) on the TV screen at the same time. PIP will
also let you swap the pictures, move the PIP picture to any of the
four corners, and even freeze the picture until you shut it off.

LIMITED WARRANTY

90 Days Free Labor
One Year Free Replacement of Parts (Two Years Free Replacement on Color Picture Tube)
This product can be repaired in-home.
WHO IS COVERED?
MAKE SURE YOU KEEP...
You must have proof of purchase to receive warranty service. A sales
receipt or other document showing that you purchased the product is
considered proof of purchase.
Please keep your sales receipt or other document showing proof of
purchase. Attach it to this owner’s manual and keep both nearby.
Also keep the original box and packing material in case you need to
return your product.
WHAT IS COVERED?
BEFORE REQUESTING SERVICE...
Warranty coverage begins the day you buy your product. For 90 days
thereafter, all parts will be repaired or replaced free, and labor is free.
From 90 days to one year from the day of purchase, all parts will be
repaired or replaced free, but you pay for all labor charges. From one
to two years from the day of purchase, you pay for the replacement or
repair of all parts except the picture tube, and for all labor charges.
After two years from the day of purchase, you pay for the replacement
or repair of all parts, and for all labor charges.
All parts, including repaired and replaced parts, are covered only for
the original warranty period. When the warranty on the product
expires, the warranty on all replaced and repaired parts also expires.
Please check your owner’s manual before requesting service.
Adjustments of the controls discussed there may save you a service
call.

PUERTO RICO OR U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS...

(In U.S.A., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands, all implied warranties,
including implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are limited in duration to the duration of this express
warranty. But, because some states do not allow limitations on how
long an implied warranty may last, this limitation may not apply to
you.)
WHAT IS EXCLUDED?
Your warranty does not cover:
• labor charges for installation or setup of the product, adjustment of
customer controls on the product, and installation or repair of
antenna systems outside of the product.
• product repair and/or part replacement because of misuse, accident, unauthorized repair or other cause not within the control of
Philips Consumer Electronics Company.
• reception problems caused by signal conditions or cable or antenna
systems outside the unit.
• a product that requires modification or adaptation to enable it to
operate in any country other than the country for which it was
designed, manufactured, approved and/or authorized, or repair of
products damaged by these modifications.
• incidental or consequential damages resulting from the product.
(Some states do not allow the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. This
includes, but is not limited to, prerecorded material, whether copyrighted or not copyrighted.)
• a product used for commercial or institutional purposes.
