Preparation
Using the remote control unit
Use the remote control unit by pointing it towards the remote control sensor on
the TV. Objects between the remote control unit and the remote control sensor
may prevent proper operation.
Cautions regarding remote control unit
• Do not expose the remote control unit to shock. In addition, do not expose the
remote control unit to liquids, and do not place in an area with high humidity.
• Do not install or place the remote control unit under direct sunlight.
The heat may cause deformation of the remote control unit.
• The remote control unit may not work properly if the remote control sensor on
the TV is under direct sunlight or strong lighting. In such cases, change the
angle of the lighting or the TV, or operate the remote control unit closer to the
remote control sensor.
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.
F-type connector
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).
75-ohm coaxial cable (round)
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).
300-ohm twin-lead cable (flat)
NOTICE
F-type connector
F-type connector should be finger-tightened only.
When connecting the RF cable to the TV set, do not tighten
F-type connector with tools.

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 election
of the program provider.
• Digital Closed Caption service is a new caption
service available only on digital TV programs (also
at the election of the service provider). It is a more
flexible system than the original Closed Caption
system, because it allows a variety of caption sizes
and font styles. When the Digital Closed Caption
service is in use, it will be indicated by appearance
of a 3-letter abbreviation that also indicates the
language of the Digital Closed Captions: ENG
(English) or SPA (Spanish) or FRA (French), or other
language codes.
• Not all programs and VHS videotapes offer closed
caption. 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 recorded in the CC
button’s memory as your last selected service.
Only services that you have selected with the
CC button are recorded.
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”.
NOTE
• See page 39 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
election of the program provider.

Parental control (setting V-CHIP level)
V-CHIP is an electronic filtering device built into your TV. This tool gives parents a great degree of control over
broadcasts accessed by their children. It allows parents to select programs judged suitable for child viewing
while blocking ones judged not suitable. It does so automatically once you activate the V-CHIP feature in your
Liquid Crystal Television.
“V-Chip” and “Status” will not be selectable from the menu if you do not first configure your secret
number. (See page 40 for Secret number setting for parental control.)
• The U.S. has two rating systems for viewing content: TV Parental Guidelines and movie ratings.
• The TV Parental Guidelines work in conjunction with the V-CHIP to help parents screen out inappropriate
television shows from their children.
• Movie ratings are used for original movies rated by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) as
watched on cable TV and not edited for television. The V-CHIP can also be set to block MPAA-rated movies.

Canadian Rating Systems
• 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.
Canadian English ratings
Rating
Age
Description
E
Exempt: Includes news, sports, documentaries and other information programming; talk
shows, music videos, and variety programming.
C
Children: Intended for younger children under the age of 8 years. Pays careful attention to
themes that could threaten their sense of security and well-being.
C8e
Children over 8 years old: Contains no portrayal of violence as the preferred, acceptable,
or only way to resolve conflict; nor encourage children to imitate dangerous acts which
they may see on the screen.
G
General: Considered acceptable for all age groups. Appropriate viewing for the entire
family, contains very little violence, physical, verbal or emotional.
PG
Parental Guidance: Intended for a general audience, but may not be suitable for younger
children (under the age of 8) because it could contain controversial themes or issues.
14e
Over 14 Years: Could contain themes where violence is one of the dominant elements of
the storyline, but it must be integral to the development of plot or character. Language
usage could be profane and nudity present within the context of the theme.
18e
Adults: Intended for viewers 18 years and older and might contain depictions of violence,
which while related to the development of plot, character or themes, are intended for adult
viewing. Could contain graphic language and portrayals of sex and nudity.

tuning will occur, even during paid programming.
Even when force tuning is active, the user can still
change the channel.
• If the unit is force tuned to a channel that has been
blocked by Parental Control, the Parental Control
setting will be given priority.
NOTE
• If you have a digital cable antenna connected, you can
receive EAS messages whether CableCARD security
module is inserted or not.
• EAS messages may be broadcast not only via digital
cable, but also via Analog Cable or over-the-air Analog

Troubleshooting-Digital broadcasting
■ The error message about reception of broadcast
The example of an error message
displayed on a screen
Error code
Possible Solution
• Failed to receive broadcast.
E202
• Check the antenna cable. Check that the antenna is correctly
setup.
• No broadcast now.
E203
• Check the broadcast time in the program guide.
Cautions regarding use in high and low temperature environments
• When the unit is used in a low temperature space (e.g. room, office), the picture may leave trails or appear slightly
delayed. This is not a malfunction, and the unit will recover when the temperature returns to normal.
• Do not leave the unit in a hot or cold location. Also, do not leave the unit in a location exposed to direct sunlight or near
a heater, as this may cause the cabinet to deform and the Liquid Crystal panel to malfunction.
Storage temperature: –4°F to +140°F (–20°C to +60°C)
