objects on it, stretch it, or over bend it. Also, do
not add extension cords. Damage to the cord
may result in fire or electric shock.
- Use only the power cord supplied with the TV.
- Insert the power plug directly into the AC outlet.
Adding an extension cord may lead to fire as a

time.
- Do not attempt to repair the power cord if it is
broken or malfunctioning. Refer the servicing to
the service representative.
- The TFT color LCD panel used in this TV is made
with the application of high precision technology.
However, there may be minute points on the
screen where pixels never light or are
permanently lit. Also, if the screen is viewed from
an acute angle, there may be uneven colors or
brightness. Please note that these are not
malfunctions but common phenomena of LCDs
and will not affect the performance of the TV.
- Do not display a still picture for a long period, as
this could cause a residual image.
- If the brightness is adjusted to the minimum
setting, it may be difficult to see the screen.
- The quality of the video signal may influence the
quality of the display. We recommend using an
equipment able to emit high quality video
signals.

Connecting the TV to a home antenna terminal
CAUTION!
- When connecting, ensure that the TV is switched off.
The antenna requirements for good color television reception are more important than those for black &
white television reception. For this reason, a good quality outdoor antenna is strongly recommended.
The following is a brief explanation of the type of connections that are provided with the various antenna
systems. (See page E10 for information on removing/replacing the terminal cover.)
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)
Notes:
- The 75-ohm coaxial cable is recommended.
- When you first receive this TV, it has no memory of any channels. To receive channels, perform the EZ Setup
(see page E20) after the first power-on, or use "CH Setup" in the Setup menu (see pages E32 and E33).
Outdoor antenna connection
- Use one of the following two diagrams if you connect an outdoor antenna.
A: Using a VHF/UHF combination outdoor antenna.
B: Using separate VHF and/or UHF outdoor antennas.
- Connect the outdoor antenna cable lead-in to the antenna input terminal (ANT-IN) on the right side of
the TV.

- A 75-ohm coaxial cable connector is built into the set for easy hookup. When connecting the 75-ohm
coaxial cable to the set, screw the 75-ohm cable to the antenna input terminal (ANT-IN).
- Some cable TV companies offer "premium pay channels". Since the signals of these premium pay
channels are scrambled, a cable TV converter/descrambler is generally provided to the subscriber by
the cable TV company. This converter/descrambler is necessary for normal viewing of the scrambled
channels. (Set your TV to channel 3 or 4, typically one of these channels is used. If this is unknown,
consult your cable TV company.) For more specific instructions on installing cable TV, consult your
cable TV company. One possible method of utilizing the converter/descrambler provided by your cable
TV company is explained below.
Please note: An RF switch provided with two inputs (A and B) is required (commercially available).

Adjusting the V-Chip settings
Important:
- Please refer to the end of this manual for "Clearing the secret number".
This function allows TV programs to be restricted and TV usage to be controlled based on FCC data.
It prevents children from watching violent or sexual scenes that may be harmful.
- Restriction of TV programs includes two ratings that contain information about the program: the MPAA
rating and the TV Parental Guidelines. The MPAA rating is restricted by age. TV Parental Guidelines
are restricted by age and content.
- Since a TV program may use either the MPAA rating or the TV Guidelines, both should be adjusted for
complete control.
Notes:
- All of the following conditions must be met to enable V-Chip Block:
1. The secret number is registered and V-Chip settings have been made. (See page E38.)
2. "Status" is set to "On". (See page E39.)
- Even when V-Chip Block is activated, the image and sound can be output normally via the AV-OUT
terminals to AV equipment.

Setting the Closed Caption (CC)
This TV is equipped with an internal Closed Caption decoder. "Closed Caption" is a system which allows
conversations, narration, and sound effects in TV programs and home videos to be viewed as captions
on the TV screen.
- Not all programs and videos will offer Closed Captioning.
- The Closed Caption broadcasts can be viewed in 2 modes: Caption (CC) and Text (Text).
For each mode, two channels are available: CH1 and CH2.
The CC mode shows subscripts of dialogs and commentaries of TV dramas and news programs while
allowing a clear view of the picture.
The Text mode displays various information over the picture (such as TV program schedules and
weather forecasts, etc.) that is independent of the TV programs.

Screen resolution
: Available
- Recommended resolution is 1360 x 768, 1280 x 768, or 1024 x 768.
- All are compliant only with non-interlaced.
- Depending on the type of computer to be connected, the display may not work correctly even when the
above relevant signals are input.
- Frequencies for Power Macintosh are reference values. To connect, another adapter (commercially
available) may be required.
- For digital connection, the TV can be connected to a computer with a DVI-compatible output terminal
(DVI-D 24 pin or DVI-I 29 pin). (Depending on the type of computer to be connected, the display may
not work correctly.)
- If the TV is receiving timing signals that are not compatible, "Out of Timing" will appear. Follow your
computer's operation manual to set the timing so that it is compatible with the TV.
- If the TV is not receiving any signal (sync signal), "No Signal" will appear.

DDC clock
This monitor supports the VESA DDC (Display
Data Channel) standard.
DDC is a signal standard for carrying out Plug &
Play functions on the monitor or computer. It
transfers information such as degree of resolution
between the monitor and computer. You can use
this function if your computer is DDC compliant
and if it is set so that it can detect the Plug & Play
monitor.
There are many varieties of DDC due to the
differences between systems. This monitor works
with DDC2B.
