IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
CAUTION:
Please read and retain for your safety.
Electrical energy can perform many useful functions. This TV set has been engineered and
manufactured to assure your personal safety. But improper use can result in potential electrical
shock or fire hazards. In order not to defeat the safeguards incorporated in this TVset,
observe the following basic rules for its installation, use and servicing.
And also follow all warnings and instructions marked on your TV set.
INSTALLATION
1 Your TV set is equipped with a polarized AC line plug (one blade of the plug is wider than the
other).
(POLARIZED-TYPE)
This safety feature allows the plug to fit into the power outlet only one w ay. Should you be
unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug.
Should it still fail to fit, contact your electrician.
2 Operate the TVset only from a power source as indicated on the TV set or refer to the oper ating instructions for this information. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your
home, consult your TV set dealer or local power company.For battery operation, refer to the
operating instructions.
3 Overloaded AC outlets and extension cords are dangerous, and so are frayed power cords
and broken plugs. They may result in a shock or fire hazard. Call your service technician for
replacement.
4 Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over the power cord, and do not place the TV set
where power cord is subject to traffic or abuse. This may result in a shock or fire hazard.
5 Do not use this TV set near water — for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, or
laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near swimming pool, etc.
6 If an outside antenna is connected to the TV set, 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 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 requirements for the grounding electrode.

7 An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or
other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits.
When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from
touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
EXAMPLE OF ANTENNA GROUNDING
AS PER NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE
8 TV sets are provided with ventilation openings in the cabinet to allow heat generated during
operation to be released.
Therefore:
— Never block the bottom ventilation slots of a portable TV set by placing it on a bed, sofa,
rug, etc.
— Never place a TV set in a “built-in” enclosure unless proper ventilation is provided.
— Never cover the openings with a cloth or other material.
— Never place the TV set near or over a radiator or heat register.
9 To avoid personal injury:
— Do not place a TV set on a sloping shelf unless properly secured.
— Use only a cart or stand recommended by the TVset manufacturer.
— Do not try to roll a cart with small casters across thresholds or deep pile carpets.
— Wall or shelf mounting should follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and should use a
mounting kit approved by the manufacturer.
USE
10 Caution children about dropping or pushing objects into the TV set through cabinet openings. Some internal parts carry hazardous voltages and contact can result in a fire or electrical shock.
11 Unplug the TV set from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid or an aerosol
cleaner.
12 Never add accessories to a TV set that has not been designed for this purpose. Such additions may result in a hazard.

13 For added protection of the TV set during a lightning storm or when the TV set is to be left
unattended for an extended period of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the
antenna.This will prevent damage to product due to lightning storms or power line surges.
14 A TVset and cart combination should be moved with
care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the TV set and cart combination to
overturn.
SERVICE
15 Unplug this TV set from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel
under the following conditions:
A.When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
B. If liquid has been spilled into the TV set.
C. If the TV set has been exposed to rain or water.
D. If the TV set does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust
only those controls that are covered in the operating instructions as improper adjustment
of other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the TV set to normal operation.
E.If the TV set has been dropped or damaged in any way.
F. When the TV set exhibits a distinct change in performance — this indicates a need for
service.
16 Do not attempt to service this TV set yourself as opening or removing co vers may expose
you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
17 When replacement parts are required, have the service technician verify in writing that the
replacement parts he uses have the same safety characteristics as the original parts. Use
of manufacturer’s specified replacement parts can pre vent fire, shock, or other hazards.
18 Upon completion of any service or repairs to this TV set, please ask the service technician
to perform the safety check described in the manufacturer’s service literature.
19 When a TV 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 TV set.
20 Note to CATV system installer.
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer’s attention to Article 820-40 of
the NEC that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the
cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the
point of cable entry as practical.

Button Functions - PIP
PIP displays two separate pictures on screen. Your television has 2-Tuner PIP, meaning you
can view pictures from two different channels simultaneously. A special set of PIP control buttons are located on the upper part of the remote control. Descriptions of each button appear
on this page.
The PIP feature is available on models AV-36F802, AV-32F802 & AV-27F802 only.
Cable Box Note
The 2-Tuner PIP function may not operate when used with certain cable boxes. This is
because while some models of cable box may receive up to 181 channels, they may only send
the signal from one channel to your television (please also see diagram on page 11). For the
PIPtuner to operate correctly, it must have access to all available channels. Since the television is receiving the signal of only one channel from the cable box, it is impossible for the 2Tuner PIP to display a second, different channel.
Because there are many different models of cable boxes in use today, if you are having prob lems operating your PIP feature with your cable box, we recommend you contact your local
cable company for connection advice.
