Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna is connected to the receiver, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to
provide some protection against voltage surges and built up static
charges.
Section 810 of the National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 701984, provides information with respect to proper grounding of
the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to
an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding connectors, location
of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode. See Figure below.
Object and Liquid Entry - Care should be taken so that objects
do not fall and liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through
openings.

• Do not mix batteries (old and new or carbon and alkaline, etc.).
• Remove batteries when the unit is not used for a long time.
Note to the CATV system installer: This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer's attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC
that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the
building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.

(Combination VHF/UHF)
The combination antenna receives normal
broadcast channels 2-13 (VHF) and 14-69 (UHF).
If your antenna has a round cable (75 ohm) on the end,
then you're ready to connect it to the TV.
If your antenna has flat, twin-lead wire (300 ohm), you
first need to attach the antenna wires to the screws on a
300- to 75-ohm adapter.
Push the round end of the adapter (or antenna) onto the
75Ω (ohm) plug on the back of the TV. If the round end of
the antenna wire is threaded, screw it down finger tight.
Plug the television in to the wall outlet and turn the TV
on. Refer to the TUNER and AUTOPROGRAM features on

NOTE: This owner's manual is used with several
different television models. Not all features (and
drawings) discussed in this manual will necessarily match those found with your television set.
This is normal and does not require that you contact your dealer or request service.
WARNING: TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK
HAZARD DO NOT EXPOSE THIS UNIT TO
RAIN OR EXCESSIVE MOISTURE.
FEATURES
Active Control™ continuously measures and corrects all incoming signals to help provide the best picture quality. This feature
monitors and corrects both the sharpness control and noise
reduction control.
Sleep Timer automatically turns the TV OFF after a set amount
of time that you choose.
Audio/Video Jack Panel allows direct connections with VCRs,
DVDs, High Definition Receivers or other devices, providing
quality TV picture and sound playback.
Stereo capability, including a built-in audio amplifier and twinspeaker system, allows for the reception of TV programs broadcast in stereo sound.
Audio Volume Leveler (AVL) Control keeps the TV sound at
an even level. Peaks and valleys that occur during program
changes or commercial breaks are reduced, making for a more
consistent, comfortable sound.
Surf Button allows you to easily switch among only the channels that are of interest to you (the ones that you have programmed into the TV’s Surf control through the onscreen menu).
Surf allows 2 channel surfing or 9 channel surfing.
Channel Lock allows you to block the viewing of certain channels or programs with certain ratings if you do not want your
children to view inappropriate materials.
Timer allows you to set your TV to turn itself ON and OFF
once or daily like an alarm clock.
Standard Broadcast (VHF/UHF) or Cable TV (CATV) channel capability allows for viewing by antenna or cable.
Auto Programming scans (when activated) for all available
channels from regular antenna or cable signals and stores only
active broadcast stations in the TV’s memory.
Items Included with This TV
As you unpack your TV, please note the included items:
• Directions for Use manual (contains safety-tip, cleaning and Factory Service Center location information)
• Warranty Registration Card
• Remote Control (with supplied batteries for use)
• Quick Use Guide to help you set up your new TV.
Please take a few minutes to complete your registration
card. The serial number for the TV is on the rear of the set.
For your future reference, please write down the serial and
model number of this television in the space provided on the
cover of this manual. (In the unlikely event you should need
to place a service call, these numbers will be needed.)
AutoPicture™ allows you to change the picture settings (color,
tint, contrast, etc.) for various types of programming, such as
sports, movies, multimedia (games), or weak signals with the
push of one button. Selections include, Personal, Rich, Natural,
Soft, Multimedia, or Eco.
AutoSound™ allows you to change to different factory predefined audio settings and a personal control that you set according to your own preferences through the onscreen Sound menu.
The five factory-set controls (Personal, Speech, Music, Movie,
and Multimedia) enable you to tailor the TV sound so as to
enhance the particular programming you are watching.
Channel Remove allows you to delete channels from the list
stored in the TV’s memory. Channel Remove makes it easy to
limit the number of channels that are available to you when you
press the Channel (+) or (–) buttons on your remote control.
END-OF-LIFE DISPOSAL
Your new television and its packing contain materials that
can be recycled and reused. Specialized companies can recycle your product to increase the amount of reusable materials
and minimize the amounts that need to be properly disposed.
Closed Captioning allows the viewer to read TV program dialogue or voice conversations as onscreen text.
Dynamic Contrast helps to sharpen the picture quality by
improving the contrast between the darkest and brightest parts of
the picture.
Your product also uses batteries that should not be thrown
away when depleted, but should be handed in and disposed of
as small chemical waste.
Pixel Plus™ (or Digital Processing) gives a choice of two different scanning techniques – Progressive Scan or Pixel Plus.
Progressive Scan doubles the number of picture lines, eliminating line flicker and providing a jitter-free picture.
Pixel Plus™ improves the appearance of onscreen motion.
The number of picture lines are increased along with the
number of pixels per line, giving normal broadcast signals,
DVD reproduction or Digital TV signals, unparalleled sharpness and depth. Gives the viewer near High Definition and
natural looking detail without the High Definition signal.
When you replace your existing equipment, please find out
about the local regulations regarding disposal of your old television, batteries, and packing materials.

Cable Descriptions:
A 75-ohm coaxial cable connects signals
from an antenna or a cable TV company
to the antenna jack on the back of the TV.
Coaxial cables use “F” connectors.
Yellow - Video
A two-way signal splitter enables you to
take a single antenna or cable TV signal
and supply it to two different inputs.
White - Audio Left
A 300- to 75-ohm twin-lead adapter
accepts the antenna cables (called twinlead wires) from an antenna, allowing you
to connect the antenna signal to the TV.
Red - Audio Right
A S-Video cable provides better picture
performance than regular (composite)
video connections.
S-Video cables can be used only with SVideo-compatible accessory devices. You
must also connect the left and right audio
cables to the AV 2 Audio in jacks because
the S-Video jack carries only the picture
signal, not the sound.
Video and audio cables with standard
RCA (phono) connectors connect the
video and audio jacks of accessory
devices such as VCRs and DVD players
to the jacks on the TV.
These connectors are usually color coded.
The jacks on your TV are also color
coded to match the colors of the connectors. Yellow for video (composite) and
Red and White for the right and left audio
channels. The video cables used to connect component video or RGB (high-resolution) jacks are color coded red, green,
and blue.
A DVI (Digital Video) cable that will
support digital connection from a PC.
Only Single Digital Link DVI is supported for PCs with 480p or 1080i output.

T

pictures with a high saturation of color. This
control works in four ways;
Dynamic Blue Stretch corrects the white colors toward a more bluish colored white without changing the other colors. Improves the
sharpness of the picture.
Green Enhancement offers a more saturated
green color in case of low green broadcasts
giving landscapes a fresher and brighter look.
Color Dependent Sharpness improves the
sharpness of the picture through the color
information. Gives the picture more details
especially in red colors.
Skin-tone Correction adjusts for over saturation of red that often appears in skin-tones.

TROUBLESHOOTING
No Power
• Check the TV power cord. Unplug the TV, wait 10 seconds,
then reinsert the plug into the outlet and push the POWER
button again.
• Check that the outlet is not on a wall switch.
• Be sure the fuse is not blown on the AC power strip, if one is
being used.
Remote Does Not Work (Continued)
• Clean the remote control and the remote control sensor window on the TV.
• Check the TV power cord. Unplug the TV, wait 10 seconds,
then reinsert the plug into the outlet and push the POWER
button again.
• Be sure the fuse is not blown on the AC power strip, if one is
being used.
• Check to be sure the TV outlet is not on a wall switch.
No Picture
• Check antenna connections. Are they properly secured to the
TV's ANT 75Ω plug?
• Check the TUNER MODE control for the correct tuner setting.
• Try running the Auto Program feature to find all available
channels.
• Press the Source Select button on the remote to make sure
the correct signal source is selected (FRONT or Current
Channel).
TV Displays Wrong Channel or No Channels Above 13
• Repeat channel selection.
• Add the desired channel numbers (using the CHANNEL
EDIT control) into the TV’s memory.
• Check to be sure the TUNER MODES are set to the CABLE
option and run the Auto Program feature to find all available
channels.
TV Displays white lines in letterbox when viewing a
DVD disc
• Some DVD Discs are encoded with as much as 30% more
video information to give the best possible picture quality.
With the DVD Player in the 16:9 picture format, the playback of this type of disc with extra video information, can
produce a number of small white lines in the upper portion
of the black letterbox area. With some of these discs, this situation is unavoidable and it does not require a service call.
No Sound
• Check the VOLUME buttons.
• Check the MUTE button on the remote control.
• If you’re attempting to hook up auxiliary equipment, check
the audio jack connections located on the front of the TV.
Remote Does Not Work
• Make sure the correct Mode button is being used.
• Check the batteries. If necessary, replace them with AA
Heavy Duty (Zinc Chloride) or Alkaline batteries.

CARE
AND
CLEANING
WARNING Concerning Stationary Images on the TV
Screen:
PLACEMENT OF THE TV
• To avoid cabinet warping, cabinet color changes, and
increased chance of set failure, do not place the TV where
temperatures can become excessively hot; for example, in
direct sunlight or near a heating appliance.
• Be sure to allow a free flow of air to and from the perforated
back cover of the set.
Do not leave stationary or letterbox images on screen
for extended periods of time. This can cause uneven
picture-tube aging.
Normal use of the TV should involve the showing of pictures
that contain constantly moving and changing images that fill the
screen. Be careful not to leave nonmoving images on screen for
extended periods of time, or to display the same images on
screen too frequently, because subtle ghost images can be left
on the picture tubes. Sources of stationary images may be DVD
disks, laser disks, video games, CD-i disks, videotapes, digital
television boxes, broadcast channels, cable channels, satellite
channels, and others. Here are some examples of stationary
images (this is not an all-inclusive list; you may encounter
others in your viewing):
CLEANING
• To avoid possible shock hazard, be sure the TV is unplugged
from the electrical outlet before cleaning.
• Regularly dust the TV with a dry, nonscratching duster to
keep the TV clean.
• When cleaning the TV, take care not to scratch or damage the
screen surface. Avoid wearing jewelry or using anything
abrasive. Do not use household cleaners. Wipe the front
screen with a clean cloth dampened with water. Use even,
easy, vertical strokes when cleaning.
• Gently wipe the cabinet surfaces with a clean cloth or sponge
dampened in a solution of cool, clear water and a mild soap
or detergent. Use a clean, dry cloth to dry the wiped surfaces.
• Occasionally vacuum the ventilation holes or slots in the back
cover of the set.
• Never use thinners, insecticide sprays, or other chemicals on
or near the cabinet, as they might cause permanent marring
of the cabinet finish.
• DVD menus—listings of DVD disk content
• Letterbox black bars—shown at the top and bottom of the
TV screen when a wide screen (16:9) movie is viewed on a
TV with standard (4:3) aspect ratio.
• Video-game images and scoreboards
• Television station logos—present a problem if they are
bright and stationary; moving or low-contrast graphics are
less likely to cause uneven aging of the picture tube
• Stock-market tickers—presented at the bottom of the TV
screen
• Shopping channel logos and pricing displays—bright
and shown constantly or repeatedly in the same location on
the TV screen.

GLOSSARY
OF
TELEVISION TERMS
Active Control • Active Control continuously measures and corrects the incoming signals to provide the best picture possible.
NTSC (analog video signals) • National Television Standards

Auto Picture and Auto Sound • Buttons on the remote control
(Sound and Picture) to select predefined picture and sound settings.
Picture Freeze • TV mode which allows you to freeze a certain
image in order to study a specific detail at ease, e.g. to make
notes of certain program information like phone numbers.
Auto Programming • When activated, this feature scans for all
available channels from regular antenna or cable signals and
stores only active broadcast stations in the TV’s memory.

WHO IS COVERED?
MAKE SURE YOU KEEP...
You must have proof of purchase to receive warranty service. A sales
receipt or other document showing that you purchased the product is
considered proof of purchase.
Please keep your sales receipt or other document showing proof of
purchase. Attach it to this owner’s manual and keep both nearby.
Also keep the original box and packing material in case you need to

WHAT IS COVERED?
BEFORE REQUESTING SERVICE...
Warranty coverage begins the day you buy your product. For 90 days
thereafter, all parts will be repaired or replaced free, and labor is free.
From 90 days to one year from the day of purchase, all parts will be
repaired or replaced free, but you pay for all labor charges. From one
to two years from the day of purchase, you pay for the replacement or
repair of all parts except the picture tube, and for all labor charges.
After two years from the day of purchase, you pay for the replacement
or repair of all parts, and for all labor charges.
All parts, including repaired and replaced parts, are covered only for
the original warranty period. When the warranty on the product
expires, the warranty on all replaced and repaired parts also expires.
Please check your owner’s manual before requesting service.
Adjustments of the controls discussed there may save you a service
call.
