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.
1. A 75-ohm system is generally a round cable with F-type
connector that can easily be attached to a terminal

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,

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),

• 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
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

2/3 CC1
3/3 Text1

• 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 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 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 42 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 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 43 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.

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.
