combination antenna receives normal broadcast channels (VHF 2–13 and UHF 14–69). Your connection is
easy because there is only one 75Ω (ohm) antenna plug on
the back of your TV, and that’s where the antenna goes.
1
If your antenna has a round cable (75 ohm) on the end,
then you're ready to connect it to the TV.
If your antenna has flat, twin-lead wire (300 ohm), you
first need to attach the antenna wires to the screws on a
300- to 75-ohm adapter.
2
3
Push the round end of the adapter (or antenna) onto the
75Ω (ohm) plug on the back of the TV. If the round end of
the antenna wire is threaded, screw it down finger tight.
Plug the television in to the wall outlet and turn the TV
on. Refer to the TUNER and AUTOPROGRAM features on
page 3 of this Quick Use Guide. TUNER should be set to the
ANTENNA option. AUTOPROGRAM can be set to program
all the available channels on your cable signal into the television’s memory.

UNDERSTANDING THE AUTOLOCK™ CONTROLS
T
he AutoLock™ feature receives and
processes data sent by broadcasters or
other program providers that contain program content advisories. When programmed
by the viewer, a TV with AutoLock™ 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 programming children
may watch.
In the AutoLock™ section, you’ll learn how
to block channels and programming that is
not rated, is unrated, or has no rating. You
will also find out how to turn these blocking
features ON or OFF. Following are brief
explanations of some terms and ratings related to the AutoLock™ feature.
AutoLock™ offers various Blocking
Options from which to choose:
BLOCKING: The BLOCKING control is
what can be thought of as the “master switch”
for AutoLock™. This control affects the settings you have chosen for blocking programs
according to movie ratings or TV ratings, or
for blocking programs that have no rating or
are unrated. When the BLOCKING control is
OFF, the blocking or censoring of programs is
disabled. When the BLOCKING control is
ON, blocking will occur according to the settings you have chosen.
NO RATING: ALL programming with no
content advisory data can be blocked if NO
RATING is set to ON.
Programming that has No Rating is not
encoded with any rating information from the
MPAA or the Parental Guidelines. Any programming could fall into this category.
You also can block individual channels or
block programming based on ratings of the
MPAA and TV broadcasters. (See a description of the ratings on this page.)

Some DVD Discs are encoded with as much
as 30% more video information to give the
viewer the best possible picture quality. With
the DVD Player in the 16:9 picture format,
the playback of this type of disc (containing
extra video information), can produce a number of small white lines in the upper portion
of the black letterbox area. With some of
these discs, this situation is unavoidable and
it does not require a service call.

may have in your home. The Movies, Sports,
Weak Signal, and Multimedia SmartPicture™

TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
No Power
• Check the TV power cord. Unplug the TV, wait 10 seconds, then reinsert the plug into the outlet and push the
POWER button again.
• Check that the outlet is not on a wall switch.
• Be sure the fuse is not blown on the AC power strip, if one is being used.
No Picture
• Check antenna connections. Are they properly secured to the TV's ANT 75Ω plug?
• Check the TUNER MODE control for the correct tuner setting.
• Try running the Auto Program feature to find all available channels.
• Press the AV button on the remote to make sure the correct signal source is selected (FRONT, AV1, AV2, Current
Channel, etc.).
No Sound
• Check the VOLUME buttons.
• Check the MUTE button on the remote control.
• If you’re attempting to hook up auxiliary equipment, check the audio jack connections located on the front of the TV.
Remote Does Not Work
• Check the batteries. If necessary, replace them with AA Heavy Duty (Zinc Chloride) or Alkaline batteries.
Remote Does Not Work Continued
• Clean the remote control and the remote control sensor window on the TV.
• Check the TV power cord. Unplug the TV, wait 10 seconds, then reinsert the plug into the outlet and push the
POWER button again.
• Be sure the fuse is not blown on the AC power strip, if one is being used.
• Check to be sure the TV outlet is not on a wall switch.
TV Displays Wrong Channel or No Channels Above 13
• Repeat channel selection.
• Add the desired channel numbers (using the CHANNEL EDIT control) into the TV’s memory.
• Check to be sure the TUNER MODES are set to the CABLE option and run the Auto Program feature to find all
available channels.
TV Displays white lines in letterbox when viewing a DVD disc
• Some DVD Discs are encoded with as much as 30% more video information to give the best possible picture quality.
With the DVD Player in the 16:9 picture format, the playback of this type of disc with extra video information, can
produce a number of small white lines in the upper portion of the black letterbox area. With some of these discs, this
situation is unavoidable and it does not require a service call.

CLEANING AND CARE
WARNING Concerning Stationary Images on the TV Screen:
Do not leave stationary or letterbox images on screen for extended periods of time. This can cause uneven picture-tube aging.
Normal use of the TV should involve the showing of pictures that contain constantly moving and changing images that
fill the screen. Be careful not to leave nonmoving images on screen for extended periods of time, or to display the same
images on screen too frequently, because subtle ghost images can be left on the picture tubes. Sources of stationary
images may be DVD disks, laser disks, video games, CD-i disks, videotapes, digital television boxes, broadcast channels, cable channels, satellite channels, and others. Here are some examples of stationary images (this is not an allinclusive list; you may encounter others in your viewing):
• DVD menus—listings of DVD disk content
• Letterbox black bars—shown at the top and bottom of the TV screen when a wide screen (16:9) movie is viewed
on a TV with standard (4:3) aspect ratio.
• Video-game images and scoreboards
• Television station logos—present a problem if they are bright and stationary; moving or low-contrast graphics are
less likely to cause uneven aging of the picture tube
• Stock-market tickers—presented at the bottom of the TV screen
• Shopping channel logos and pricing displays—bright and shown constantly or repeatedly in the same location on
the TV screen.
Placement of the TV
• To avoid cabinet warping, cabinet color changes, and increased chance of set failure, do not place the TV where temperatures can become excessively hot; for example, in direct sunlight or near a heating appliance.
• Be sure to allow a free flow of air to and from the perforated back cover of the set.
Cleaning
• To avoid possible shock hazard, be sure the TV is unplugged from the electrical outlet before cleaning.
• Regularly dust the TV with a dry, nonscratching duster to keep the TV clean.
• When cleaning the TV, take care not to scratch or damage the screen surface. Avoid wearing jewelry or using anything abrasive. Do not use household cleaners. 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 and a mild
soap or detergent. Use a clean, dry cloth to dry the wiped surfaces.
• Occasionally vacuum the ventilation holes or slots in the back cover of the set.
• Never use thinners, insecticide sprays, or other chemicals on or near the cabinet, as they might cause permanent marring of the cabinet finish.

GLOSSARY
Audio/Video Inputs • These connectors (phono type plug)
receive audio and video signals from VCRs or other devices.
Remote Sensor • A window or opening on the Television control panel through which infrared remote control signals are
received.
Auto Program • The procedure of adding or deleting channel
numbers into the Television’s memory. The Television “remembers’’ only the locally available or desired channel numbers and
skips over any unwanted channel numbers.
Status/Exit • Allows the user to quickly confirm the current
channel number. 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).
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 dialog and conversations while the
TV program is in progress.
Surf • Scanning specific channels in a limited channel list.
Tuner Mode • Designed for first time set up and use where the
TV is set for antenna or cable TV signal connections.
Coaxial Cable • A single solid antenna wire normally matched
with a metal (F-type) connector that screws (or pushes) directly
onto a 75 Ohm input found on the Television or VCR.
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 on recent Televisions and VCRs.
Menu • An on-screen listing of feature controls that are available for adjustment.
On-screen Displays (OSD) • The wording or messages generated by the television to help the user with specific feature controls (color adjustment, programming, etc.).
