Radio Shack 16-3009 User's Manual

2.3” LCD TV
EXT. ANT. Jack - Lets you
connect an external antenna for
optimum reception in weak
signal areas.
16-3009
EAR Jack - Lets you enjoy
private listening with an optional
earphone.
External Antenna
Flat LCD - makes the TV more
compact and uses less power
than a standard picture tube.
If you are in an area with weak TV signals, or
inside a metal or concrete building, you might
need an external antenna to improve reception.
Connect the antenna to the EXT. ANT. jack. If
your antenna wire is 75-ohm coaxial cable, use
an F-to-mini plug adapter to complete the
connection. If you have 300-ohm wire, use a
300-to-75 ohm mini plug adapter. Both are
available at your local RadioShack store.
Volume - Turn the dial to adjust
the volume level.
Power
Bright - Turn dial to adjust the
brightness level.
BATTERY POWER
Tuning Ý /Þ - Turn dial to adjust
the picture to the desired television
channel.
Your TV requires four AA batteries (not supplied).
You may purchase alkaline batteries from your local
RadioShack store.
1. Slide off the battery compartment cover.
2. Insert the batteries into the compartment
(three above and one below) as indicated by the
polarity symbols (+ and –) marked inside.
3. Replace the cover.
EXT. ANT. Jack
Use the stand to lean the TV
against flat surfaces.
Notes:
• The TV can operate for about 4 hours with alkaline batteries. When the sound level
lowers or the picture becomes unstable, replace the batteries.
• The TV’s internal batteries automatically disconnect when you connect an adapter.
AC POWER
You can power the TV using a regulated 6V AC adapter of at
least 500 mA, and a size B Adaptaplug™ adapter (neither
supplied). Both are available at your local RadioShack store.
Set the adapter’s voltage switch to 6V. Insert the Adaptaplug into
the adapter’s cord, aligning + with TIP. Plug the Adaptaplug’s
barrel plug into the TV’s DC IN 6V jack. Then plug the other end
of the AC adapter cord into a standard AC outlet.
Note: The adapter might become warm after extended periods
of use.
Built-in Rod Antenna
UHF/VHF/OFF
Using Your TV
1. Extend the rod antenna and slide UHF/VHF/OFF to VHF or UHF. The TV starts scanning and stops at the next active channel
in the selected band.
2. Press
TUNING
to tune to a different channel. The tuning line on the screen aligns with the selected channel number
below the screen.
3. To adjust the volume, rotate VOLUME located on the right side of the TV.
4. To adjust the picture to the desired brightness, rotate BRIGHT located on the right side of the TV. The brightness also
changes with the screen’s angle.
BACKLIGHT
DC IN 6V Jack
In low temperatures, the TV screen takes a few seconds to light, or it might be slightly red
in color. This is not a malfunction. Normal operation resumes after a few seconds.
USING AN EARPHONE
USING VEHICLE BATTERY POWER
You can power the TV from a vehicle’s 12V power source (such as a cigarette-lighter
socket) using a 6V, 500-mA DC adapter and a size B Adaptaplug™ adapter (neither
supplied). Use an optional DC adapter to power the TV from a vehicle’s cigarette-lighter
socket if the vehicle has a 12V DC, negative ground electrical system.
Set the adapter’s voltage switch to 6V. Insert the Adaptaplug into the adapter’s cord,
aligning + with TIP. Plug the Adaptaplug’s barrel plug into the TV’s DC IN 6V jack. Unplug
the vehicle’s cigarette lighter and plug the large end of the DC adapter cord into the
cigarette-lighter socket.
Note: If the TV does not operate properly when you use DC power, be sure the cigarettelighter socket is clean and that the adapter’s plug is properly connected to the socket.
For private listening, you can connect an optional earphone with a 1/8-inch plug to the EAR
jack. This automatically mutes the built-in speaker.

Cautions:
• Set VOLUME to the lowest setting before you begin listening. Then adjust the volume to a comfortable level.
• Do not use an earphone when operating a vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can cause a traffic hazard and can be illegal in
some areas.

two conditions:
• The TV may not cause harmful
