as well as damage to the product. Use only a cart, stand, tripod, bracket or table recommended
by the manufacturer or sold with the product. When mounting the product on a wall, be sure to
follow the manufacturer's instructions. Use only the mounting hardware recommended by the
manufacturer.
• Selecting the location — Select a place with no direct sunlight and good ventilation.
• Ventilation — The vents and other openings in the cabinet are designed for ventilation. Do not
cover or block these vents and openings since insufficient ventilation can cause overheating
and/or shorten the life of the product. Do not place the product on a bed, sofa, rug or other
similar surface, since they can block ventilation openings. This product is not designed for builtin installation; do not place the product in an enclosed place such as a bookcase or rack, unless
proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer's instructions are followed.
• The Liquid Crystal panel used in this product is made of glass. Therefore, it can break when the

case the panel breaks.
• Heat — The product should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat
registers, stoves, or other products (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
• The Liquid Crystal panel is a very high technology product with 3,147,264 thin film transistors, giving you fine picture details.
Occasionally, a few non-active pixels may appear on the screen as a fixed point of blue, green or red. Please note that this
does not affect the performance of your product.
Precautions when transporting the TV
• Be sure to always carry the TV by two people holding it with two hands — one hand on
each side of the TV.
• Lightning — For added protection for this television equipment 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. This will prevent damage to the equipment due to lightning and
power-line surges.
• 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.

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.
1
Press CC.
2
Press CC while the Closed Caption information
is still on the screen.
• This will present the Closed Caption information
display.
• Press repeatedly until you select the desired
closed caption service.
Closed Caption
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:
• 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”.
• See page 44 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 41 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.

should not attempt to do the work themselves. SHARP bears no responsibility for improper mounting or mounting
that results in accident or injury.
Using an optional bracket to mount the TV
• You can ask a qualified service professional about using an optional ANLCGWF bracket to mount the TV to the wall.
• Carefully read the instructions that come with the bracket before beginning work.
