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.
Note: CEA is the preeminent trade association promoting growth in the $161 billion
U.S. consumer electronics industry. More than 2,200 companies enjoy the benefits of
CEA membership, including legislative advocacy, market research, technical training and
education, industry promotion and the fostering of business and strategic relationships.

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.
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).

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.

Closed Caption
information
• Depending on the number of caption services in
the signal being received, you will see information
such as 1/4 displayed.
1/4 means “the CC1 services” is selected.
Example:
If a program has three services (Digital DTVCC1),
CC1 and TEXT1), the closed caption display will
toggle in this sequence:
• The CC button keeps a record of the last service
selected in its memory.
If the last closed caption mode (e.g. DTVCC1) 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. “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 DTVCC1
and CC1), and Digital DTVCC1 is displayed
as your current selection, if Digital DTVCC1 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. “CC1” is displayed
instead of “DTVCC1”.
• See page 43 for detailed closed caption settings.
• 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.

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 TV.
“V-Chip” and “Status” will not be selectable from the menu if you do not first configure your secret
number. (See page 44 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
