2
Safety
• Operate the projection TV only on 120 V
AC.
• The plug is designed, for safety purposes,
to fit into the wall outlet only one way. If
you are unable to insert the plug fully into
the outlet, contact your dealer.
• If any liquid or solid object should fall
inside the cabinet, unplug the projection
TV immediately and have it checked by
qualified service personnel before
operating it further.
• If you will not be using the projection TV
for several days, disconnect the power by
pulling the plug itself. Never pull on the
cord.
Note on cleaning
Clean the cabinet of the projection TV with a
dry soft cloth. To remove dust from the
screen, wipe it gently with a soft cloth.
Stubborn stains may be removed with a cloth
slightly dampened with solution of mild soap
and warm water. Never use strong solvents
such as thinner or benzine for cleaning.
If the picture becomes dark after using the
projection TV for a long period of time, it may
be necessary to clean the inside of the
projection TV. Consult qualified service
personnel.
Installing
• To prevent internal heat buildup, do not
block the ventilation openings.
• Do not install the projection TV in a hot
or humid place, or in a place subject to
excessive dust or mechanical vibration.
• Avoid operating the projection TV at
temperatures below 5° C (41° F).
• If the projection TV is transported
directly from a cold to a warm location,
or if the room temperature changes
suddenly, the picture may be blurred or
show poor color. In this case, please wait
a few hours to let the moisture evaporate
before turning on the projection TV.
• To obtain the best picture, do not expose
the screen to direct illumination or direct
sunlight. It is recommended to use spot
lighting directed down from the ceiling
or to cover the windows that face the
screen with opaque drapery. It is
desirable to install the projection TV in a
room where the floor and walls are not of
a reflective material.
Important Safeguards
For your protection, please read these
instructions completely, and keep this
manual for future reference.
Carefully observe and comply with all
warnings, cautions and instructions placed
on the set, or described in the operating
instructions or service manual.
WARNING
To guard against injury, the following basic
safety precautions should be observed in the
installation, use, and servicing of the set.
Use
Power Sources
This set should be
operated only from the
type of power source
indicated on the serial/
model plate.
If you are not sure of the type of electrical
power supplied to your home, consult your
dealer or local power company. For those
sets designed to operate from battery power,
refer to the operating instructions.
Grounding or Polarization
This set is equipped with a polarized AC
power cord plug (a plug having one blade
wider than the other), or with a three-wire
grounding type plug (a plug having a third
pin for grounding).
Follow the instructions below:
Overloading
Do not overload wall
outlets, extension cords or
convenience receptacles
beyond their capacity,
since this can result in fire
or electric shock.
For the set with a
polarized AC power
cord plug
This plug will fit into the power outlet only
one way. This is a safety feature. If you are
unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet,
try reversing the plug. If the plug should still
fail to fit, contact your electrician to have a
suitable outlet installed. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the polarized plug by
forcing it in.
Always turn the set off
when it is not to be used.
When the set is left
unattended and unused
for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall
outlet as a precaution
against the possibility of
an internal malfunction
that could create a fire
hazard.
Alternate Warning
For the set with a
three-wire grounding
type AC plug
This plug will only fit into a grounding-type
power outlet. This is a safety feature. If you
are unable to insert the plug into the outlet,
contact your electrician to have a suitable
outlet installed. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the grounding plug.
Object and Liquid
Entry
Never push objects of any
kind into the set through
the cabinet slots as they
may touch dangerous
voltage points or short out
parts that could result in a
fire or electric shock.
Never spill liquid of any kind on the set.

Important
Installing and
Safeguards
Connecting
(continued)
the Projection TV (continued)
Attachments
Do not use attachments
not recommended by the
manufacturer, as they
may cause hazards.
Cleaning
Unplug the set from the
wall outlet before
cleaning or polishing it.
Do not use liquid cleaners
or aerosol cleaners. Use a
cloth lightly dampened
with water for cleaning
the exterior of the set.
If a snapping or popping
sound from a projection
TV set is continuous or
frequent while the
projection TV is
operating, unplug the
projection TV and consult
your dealer or service
technician.
It is normal for some projection TV sets to
make occasional snapping or popping
sounds, particularly when being turned on or
off.
4
Installation
Water and Moisture
Do not use power-line
operated sets near
water— for example, near
a bathtub, washbowl,
kitchen sink, or laundry
tub, in a wet basement or
near a swimming pool,
etc.
Accessories
Do not place the set on an
unstable cart, stand, table
or shelf. The set may fall,
causing serious injury to a
child or an adult, and
serious damage to the set.
Use only a cart or stand recommended by the
manufacturer for the specific model of
projection TV.
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.
Ventilation
The slots and openings in the cabinet and in
the back or bottom are provided for
necessary ventilation. To ensure reliable
operation of the set, and to protect it from
overheating, these slots and openings must
never be blocked or covered.
- Never cover the slots
and openings with a cloth
or other materials.
- Never block the slots
and openings by placing
the set on a bed, sofa, rug
or other similar surface.
- Never place the set in a
confined space, such as a
bookcase, or built-in
cabinet unless proper
ventilation is provided.
- Do not place the set near
or over a radiator or heat
register, or where it is
exposed to direct
sunlight.
Power-Cord
Protection
Do not allow anything to
rest on or roll over the
power cord, and do not
place the set where the
power cord is subject to
wear or abuse.
Antennas
Outdoor Antenna Grounding — If an
outdoor antenna is installed, follow the
precautions below.
An outdoor antenna system should not be
located in the vicinity of overhead power
lines or other electric light or power circuits,
or where it can come in contact with such
power lines or circuits.
WHEN INSTALLING AN OUTDOOR
ANTENNA SYSTEM, EXTREME CARE
SHOULD BE TAKEN TO KEEP FROM
CONTACTING SUCH POWER LINES OR
CIRCUITS AS CONTACT WITH THEM IS
ALMOST INVARIABLY FATAL.
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 Electrical Code
(NEC) in USA and Section 54 of the
Canadian Electrical Code in Canada provides
information with respect 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.
Lightning
For added protection for this television
receiver during a lightning storm, or when it
is left unattended and unused for long
periods of time, unplug it from the wall
outlet and disconnect the antenna. This will
prevent damage to the receiver due to
lightning and power-line surges.
Antenna Grounding According to the
NEC — Refer to section 54-300 of Canadian
Electrical Code for Antenna Grounding.
Damage Requiring Service
Unplug the set from the wall outlet and refer
servicing to qualified service personnel
under the following conditions:

operate normally when
following the operating
instructions. Adjust only
those controls that are
specified in the operating
instructions.
Improper adjustment of
other controls may result
in damage and will often
require extensive work by
a qualified technician to
restore the set to normal
operation.
- When the set exhibits a distinct change in
performance—this indicates a need for
service.
6
Servicing
Do not attempt to service
the set yourself since
opening the cabinet may
expose you to dangerous
voltage or other hazards.
Refer all servicing to
qualified service
personnel.
Replacement Parts
When replacement parts are required, be
sure the service technician certifies in writing
that he has used replacement parts specified
by the manufacturer that have the same
characteristics as the original parts.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in
fire, electric shock, or other hazards.
Safety Check
Upon completion of any
service or repairs to the
set, ask the service
technician to perform
routine safety checks (as
specified by the
manufacturer) to
determine that the set is
in safe operating
condition, and to so
certify.
When the set reaches the
end of its useful life,
improper disposal could
result in a picture tube
implosion. Ask a
qualified service
technician to dispose of
the set.
