a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub,
in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool.
7. Accessories, Carts, and Stands
Do not place this product on an unstable cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, or table. The product may fall, causing serious injury to a child or adult, and serious
damage to the product. Use only with a cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer, or sold with the product. Any mounting of
the product should follow the manufacturer’s
instructions, and should use a mounting accessory
recommended by the manufacturer.
8. Transporting Product
A product and cart combination should be moved
with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(Continued from previous page)
14. Outdoor Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected
to the product, be sure the antenna or cable system
is grounded so as to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code (U.S.A.),
ANSI/ NFPA 70 provides information with regard 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 to
grounding electrodes, and requirements for the
grounding electrode.
Example of Grounding According to National
Electrical Code Instructions
Ground Clamp
Antenna Lead in Wire
Antenna Discharge Unit
(NEC Section 810-20)

15. Lightning
For added protection for this product (receiver) during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended
and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from
the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable
system. This will prevent damage to the product due
to lightning and power-line surges.
16. Power Lines
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.

qualified technician to restore the product to its normal
operation.
e. If the product has been dropped or the cabinet has
been damaged.
f. If the product exhibits a distinct change in performance.
21. Replacement Parts

Closed Captions
Closed captioning is a process which converts the audio portion of a television program into written words which
then appear as subtitles on the television screen. Closed captions allow viewers to read the dialogue and narration of television programs.
Using Closed Captions
Captions are the subtitles of the dialogue and narration of television programs. For prerecorded programs, program dialogue can
be arranged into captions in advance. It’s possible to caption a
live program by using a process called real-time captioning, which
creates captions instantly. Real-time captioning is normally done
by professional reporters using a machine shorthand system and
computer for translation into English.
Captioning is an effective system for the hearing-impaired, and it
can also aid in teaching language skills.

The picture at left shows a typical caption.
Caption Tips
•
•
Not all TV broadcasts include closed caption signals.
Sometimes TV stations broadcast four different caption signals on the same channel. By selecting From CC
1 to CC 4, you can choose which signal you view. CC 1 is usually the signal with the captions, while Another
mode might show demonstration or programming information.
Your TV might not receive caption signals normally in the following situations.
•
1 Poor reception conditions are encountered:
2
3
4
5
•
IGNITION:
Picture may flutter, drift, suffer from black spots, or horizontal streaking. Usually caused by interference from automobile ignition systems, neon lamps, electrical drills, and other
electrical appliances.
•
GHOSTS:
Ghosts are caused when the TV signal splits and follows two
paths. One is the direct path and the other is reflected off tall
buildings, hills or other objects. Changing the direction or
position of the antenna may improve reception.
•
SNOW:
If your receiver is located at the weak, fringe area of a TV
signal, your picture may be marred by small dots. It may be
necessary to install a special antenna to improve the picture.
An old, bad or illegally recorded tape is played.
Strong, random signals from a car or airplane interfere with the TV signal.
The signal from the antenna is weak.
The program wasn’t captioned when it was produced, transmitted, or taped.

Maintenance
Caring for your TV
Early malfunctions can be prevented. Careful and regular cleaning can extend the
amount of time you will have with your new TV. Be sure to turn the power off and pull out
the plug before you begin any cleaning.
Screen Cleaning
1. Here’s a great way to keep the dust off your screen for a while. Wet a soft
cloth in a mixture of lukewarm water and a little fabric softener or dish
washing detergent. Wring the cloth until it’s almost dry, and then use it to
wipe the screen.
2. Make sure the excess water is off the screen, and then let it air-dry before
you turn on your TV.
Cabinet Cleaning
1. Use a soft cloth with a mild soap solution to wipe the cabinet.
2. Rinse the cloth and wipe the cabinet again.
3. Let the cabinet air-dry before turning your TV on.
Extended Absence
MISC.
If you leave your TV dormant for a long time (such as a vacation), it’s a good
idea to unplug the power to protect against possible damage from lightning
or power surges. If you use an off-air antenna, you may also want to disconnect it from the back of your TV before leaving.
