IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
CHILD SAFETY:
It Makes A Difference How and Where You Use Your Flat Panel Display
Congratulations on your purchase! As you enjoy your new product, please keep these safety tips in mind:
THE ISSUE
• The home theater entertainment experience is a growing trend and larger flat panel
displays are popular purchases. However, flat panel displays are not always supported
on the proper stands or installed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
• Flat panel displays that are inappropriately situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves,
desks, speakers, chests or carts may fall over and cause injury.
THIS MANUFACTURER CARES!
• The consumer electronics industry is committed to making home entertainment enjoyable
and safe.
TUNE INTO SAFETY
• One size does NOT fit all. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the safe
installation and use of your flat panel display.
• Carefully read and understand all enclosed instructions for proper use of this product.
• Don’t allow children to climb on or play with furniture and television sets.
• Don’t place flat panel displays on furniture that can easily be used as steps, such as
a chest of drawers.
• Remember that children can become excited while watching a program, especially
on a “larger than life” flat panel display. Care should be taken to place or install the
display where it cannot be pushed, pulled over, or knocked down.
• Care should be taken to route all cords and cables connected to the flat panel
display so that they cannot be pulled or grabbed by curious children.
WALL MOUNTING: IF YOU DECIDE TO WALL MOUNT YOUR FLAT
PANEL DISPLAY, ALWAYS:
• Use a mount that has been recommended by the display manufacturer and/or listed
by an independent laboratory (such as UL, CSA, ETL).
• Follow all instructions supplied by the display and wall mount manufacturers.
• If you have any doubts about your ability to safely install your flat panel display,
contact your retailer about professional installation.
• Make sure that the wall where you are mounting the display is appropriate. Some
wall mounts are not designed to be mounted to walls with steel studs or old cinder
block construction. If you are unsure, contact a professional installer.
• A minimum of two people are required for installation. Flat panel displays can be
heavy.

Antennas
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.
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).
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).

■ MTS/SAP stereo mode
The TV has a feature that allows reception of sound
other than the main audio for the program. This feature
is called Multi-channel Television Sound (MTS). The TV
with MTS can receive mono sound, stereo sound
and Secondary Audio Programs (SAP). The SAP
feature allows a TV station to broadcast other
information, which could be audio in another language
or something completely different like weather
information.
You can enjoy Hi-Fi stereo sound or SAP broadcasts
where available.
• Stereo broadcasts: View programs like live sporting
events, shows and concerts in dynamic stereo sound.
• SAP broadcasts: Receive TV broadcasts in either MAIN or
SAP sound.
MAIN sound: The normal program soundtrack (either in
mono or stereo).
SAP sound: Listen to a second language, supplementary
commentary or other information. (SAP is mono sound.)
If stereo sound is difficult to hear.
• Obtain a clearer sound by manually switching to fixed
mono-sound mode.

Closed Captions and Digital Closed Captions
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 for 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 “N” 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 “CC1” and “CC2” services display
subtitles of TV programs superimposed over the
program's picture.
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.

information
• Depending on the number of caption services in the
signal being received, you will see information such as
1/2 or 1/4 displayed.
1/2 means “the first of two services”.
Example:
If a program has three services (Digital CC(ENG), CC1
and Text1), the closed caption display will toggle in this
sequence:
1/3 ENG
2/3 CC1
3/3 Text1
Off
• The CC button keeps a record of the last service
selected in its memory.
If the last closed caption mode (e.g. 1/3ENG) you
selected is not available for the next program, or on
another channel, the closed caption service that is
available is automatically selected, and this service
appears in parentheses, e.g. “1/3(CC1)”.
Closed Caption services that appear in parentheses will
not be stored in the CC button's memory as your last
selected service. Only services that you have selected
with the CC button are stored.
Examples:
In a case where there are two closed caption
services provided (for instance, Digital CC(ENG)
and CC1), and Digital CC(ENG) is displayed
as your current selection, if Digital CC(ENG) is
not broadcast for the next program, the other
closed caption service, CC1, will be displayed in
parentheses.
A closed caption service appears in parentheses
because the service you selected is not available
and a different service is displayed on your screen.
“1/1(CC1)” is displayed instead of “1/2/ENG”.
• When “Power Saving” is set to “Standard” or “Advanced”,
the Power Saving leaf icon appears on the channel
information window. See page 23 for details of Power
Saving settings.
• See page 29 for detailed closed caption settings.
• When the program contains no closed caption, “--” displays
in the closed caption information.
• If the language code, e.g. “ENG”, is not found on Digital TV
programs, “--” will be shown.
• Four kinds of closed caption service (CC1, CC2, Text1,
Text2) are potentially available, but a broadcast may contain
none or only some of these services at the discretion of the
program provider.

Canadian Rating Systems (Canadian English ratings and Canadian French ratings)
• 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.

may be integrated into the plot in a humorous or unrealistic manner.

situations.

and therefore recommended for viewing with parent.
