17. Tilt/Stability - All televisions must comply with recommended
international global safety standards for tilt and stability properties
of its cabinet design.
• Do not compromise these design standards by applying excessive pull force to the front, or top, of the cabinet which could ultimately overturn the product.
• Also, do not endanger yourself, or children, by placing electronic equipment/toys on the top of the cabinet. Such items could
unsuspectingly fall from the top of the set and cause product damage and/or personal injury.
18. Wall or Ceiling Mounting - The appliance should be mounted to
a wall or ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer.
19. Power Lines - An outdoor antenna should be located away from
power lines.
20. 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.
21. Object and Liquid Entry - Care should be taken so that objects
do not fall and liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through
openings.
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.

CVBS—labeled “V,” provides a small step up in quality from the Tuner (RF) input. Called
Composite Video.
S-Video (Y/C)—provides better picture quality than CVBS. Separates the signal into color and
brightness.
YPbPr—provides the best quality video signal. Called Component Video Input, the signal is
split into three parts, two color and one brightness.

Provides speaker-wire input terminals for connection of an external
home-cinema surround-sound system amplifier. For this use, set the
switch to “EXT,” and the TV
speakers become the center speakers for the home-cinema surroundsound system.
NOTE: If no audio is heard from
the set, check to make sure the

Pre-connection Recommendations
Positioning the TV
Before connecting accessory devices—VCR,
DVD player, or HD satellite receiver, for example—please keep the following in mind:
• Place the TV on a flat surface. An unlevel surface may adversely affect picture performance.
• Do not place the TV on shag carpet or any surface that will block the ventilation openings at
the bottom of the set. Blockage will cause the
TV to overheat and shut down.
• Allow 4 to 6 inches of space behind the TV
for ventilation.
• An optional swivel and an optional stand are
available for use with your TV. See your electronics dealer.
• Test various locations in the room to find the
optimal spot to locate the set for best viewing.
• Do not place the TV in direct sunlight or near
a heating appliance.
• Do not expose the TV to rain or moisture.
• To prevent any unsafe situations, do not place
objects on top of the TV.
Situate the TV where
it will not be exposed
to heat or moisture.
For safety, do not
set objects on top
of the TV.
Allow 4 to 6 inches
behind the TV for
ventilation.
Place the TV on
a flat surface.
Providing Protection Against Power
Surges
• Connect all accessory devices before you plug
any of their power cords into the wall outlet or
power strip. NEVER plug your TV into an
outlet that is controlled by a wall switch.
• Turn off the TV and/or accessory devices
before you connect or disconnect any cables.
• Ensure that all antennas and cables are properly grounded. See page 3, “Important Safety
Instructions.”
Do not place the TV on a surface that will block
the air filters located underneath the set.
Protecting Accessory Devices from
Overheating
• Arrange accessory devices so that air can circulate freely around them.
• Don’t stack the accessory devices. Arrange
them to allow for good ventilation. The
optional Philips stand provides enough room
for two accessory devices, side by side.
• If you connect an audio receiver or amplifier,
place it on the top shelf so the heated air from
it will not flow around other components.
Optional Swivel
Connecting Cables
Be sure to insert each cable firmly into the correct jack.

• If you do not know whether your DVD
player is standard or progressive scan, you
can connect it to either AV3 or AV4, and the
TV will automatically determine the type of
output.
• To simplify making connections, the connectors on audio and video cables are often
color coded to match the colors on TV
jacks: green for Y, blue for Pb, and red for

left audio.
• The names for the component video jacks
may differ depending on the DVD player or
accessory digital source equipment used.
For example, besides YPbPr, you may see
R-Y/B-Y/Y; or CrCbY. Although abbreviations and terms may vary, the letters B and
R stand for the blue and red color component signal connectors, respectively, and Y
indicates the luminance signal. If necessary,
refer to the user manual for your DVD or

Turning on Color Enhancement
The Color Enhancement control can improve
the picture quality of 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.

Selecting a Picture Format Option
Your TV’s wide screen (16:9 aspect ratio)
delivers a home-cinema experience that isn’t
possible with a conventional (4:3 aspect ratio)
set. The 16:9 format of high-definition (HD)
programs and other widescreen-format video
sources appear more lifelike, dramatic, and
theatrical. Black or gray bars are diminished
or eliminated. As the television industry
moves toward the high-definition format standard and more HD broadcasts become available, you will be able to see the broadcasts as
they were intended—in 16:9 format.
For flexibility in viewing conventional 4:3format video sources on your TV’s wide
screen, you have the options Automatic,”
“Super zoom,” “Panoramic,” “4:3,” “Movie
expand 14:9,” “Movie expand 16:9,” “16:9
subtitle,” or “Wide screen.”

The term aspect ratio refers to the relationship between the width and height of a TV
screen. Historically, TV screen width has
been 33 percent greater than its height,
amounting to a 4:3 aspect ratio. The width
of your widescreen TV, however, is nearly
80 percent greater than its height, which
means its aspect ratio is 16:9. This screen
corresponds well with the tendency of the
eyes to feel more comfortable with fields of
view and action planes that are horizontally
oriented. The wide screen is also proportionally truer to the formats in which
movies are filmed and presented in theaters.
However, many widescreen DVDs will still
display black bars to preserve the true theatrical format.
4:3
Displays a conventional 4:3 picture without change. Black or
gray bars will show at the left and
right sides.
Movie expand 16:9
Alters the image both horizontally (stretched) and vertically
(cropped) to fill the TV’s wide
screen. Part of the top and bottom
portions of the picture will be
excluded from the screen.
35
16:9 subtitle
Zooms the picture for a full view
of subtitles or other information
displayed at the bottom of the
picture. Part of the top portion of
the picture is excluded from the
screen.
Wide screen
Evenly stretches the width of the
picture to fill the screen.
Selecting a Picture Format Option
Choose a picture format size to match the
type of program you’re watching. Select the
normal 4:3 aspect ratio or a variety of
widescreen formats.

Turning the Antenna Attenuator on or off
If you live near a television station’s transmitter tower, you may receive an interfering signal from the station while watching other TV
channels. Your television’s Antenna
Attenuator control is designed to reduce the
strength of such a signal in the presence of a
strong main signal. The default setting for the
Antenna Attenuator is “Off.” If you need to
use the feature, simply toggle it “On” in the
on-screen menu. The setting you make
applies to the channel you are currently
watching and will remain in place until you

CLEANING THE TV
Be sure the TV is
unplugged before
cleaning it.
WARNING
To avoid possible shock hazard, be sure the
TV is unplugged from the electrical outlet
before cleaning.
Cleaning the Cabinet
• Regularly dust the TV cabinet with a dry,
nonscratching duster.
• Gently wipe the cabinet surfaces with a
soft, clean cloth. Even if the surfaces are
very dirty, do not apply cleaner to them
directly. Soak the cloth in a solution of
cool, clean water and mild soap or detergent. Wring out the cloth and wipe the cabinet surfaces clean. Then use a clean, dry
cloth to dry the wiped surfaces.
• Occasionally vacuum the ventilation slots
on the back cover of the set. See the next
section on “Cleaning or Replacing the
Filters.”
• Never use thinners, insecticide sprays, or
other chemicals on or near the cabinet, as
they might cause permanent marring of the
cabinet finish.
• The television contains plastic parts. DO
NOT use benzine, thinners, or other chemicals to clean. DO NOT use insecticide or
other volatile substances nearby. DO NOT
allow the TV to come into contact for
extended periods of time with rubber or
vinyl products.
Use a nonscratching duster.
Soak the wiping cloth in
cool, clean water and mild
detergent. Then ring the
cloth out before using.
Don’t use chemicals on or
near the TV.
Cleaning the Screen
• Use a dry soft cloth to wipe the screen. Use
even, easy, vertical strokes. Take care not
to scratch or damage the screen surface.
Avoid wearing jewelry or using anything
abrasive.
69
Cleaning or Replacing the Filters
The Cineos TV has two filters that cover air
inlets on the bottom of the set. Maintaining a
free flow of air through the inlets is very important. If the air filters become dirty, clogged, or
blocked, the temperature in the set will rise.

If the internal temperature of the TV rises to
high, a warning message alerts you that the TV
is shutting down. If the temperature remains at
this high level for 1 minute, the TV will enter
Standby mode. In Standby mode, the TV is off.
Be sure the TV is not placed on a surface (such
as a shag carpet) that will prevent the free flow
of air through the inlets, and periodically clean
or replace the filters as detailed in the following
instructions.

Should the heat level become too high due to
blockage, a sensor detects this, and a warning
message appears on screen alerting you to

every 15 minutes as long as the temperature
remains too high.

Replacing the Lamp
The Cineos TV uses a lamp with a limited
lifetime to illuminate the picture. A Lifetime
counter in the TV records the operating time
of the lamp. One hundred hours before the
lamp reaches the end of its life, a warning
message will appear on screen. This will
allow you to prepare to replace the lamp or
take action right away. The message will disappear within 6 seconds. It will reappear each
time the TV is turned on until the lamp is
replaced.
A blinking orange light
in the Active Standby
Window means that the
lamp needs to be
replaced.
To order a replacement lamp, call the
Philips Customer Care Center at
1-800-531-0039. A Philips associate will
be happy to assist you. The part number
for the Philips TV replacement lamp is
3122 438 71310.

Troubleshooting
TV-related Checks (continued from page 73)
The picture appears doubled or tripled.
• If you are using an antenna, be sure it is facing in the correct direction. Also, check to see if it may be receiving signals that are
being reflected off of mountains or buildings.
The picture shakes or is not clear.
• If you are using an antenna, make sure it is not broken or shorted, and make sure the antenna cable is connected properly and
securely.
• If you are using a VCR and selecting channels on the TV, make sure the TV/VCR mode on the VCR is set to TV.
The picture has no colors or colors are not correct.
• Make sure you have made connections correctly. (pages *Q3–5, 10–16, 18, 20)
• If you have connected accessory equipment, such as an HD satellite receiver, make sure the color setting on the accessory equipment is correct. See the user manual for the HD satellite receiver.
The TV sound has an unusual quality.
• Check the TV’s Equalizer control to be sure it is set to the option you want. (page 39)
Remote-related Checks
The remote control does not work.
• Make sure nothing is blocking the path between the remote control and the TV or accessory device you want to operate.
• Make sure you point the remote directly at the TV or accessory device you want to operate.
• If you want to operate the TV, make sure the remote is in TV mode. If you want to operate an accessory device, program the
remote for the device if necessary and make sure the remote is in the appropriate mode for the device. (pages *Q6, 22–26)
• Make sure you have installed the batteries correctly. (page *Q6)
• The batteries could be dead. When the batteries in the remote run low, the remote will send a “Battery Low” command to the TV.
The TV will then display a message on the screen reminding you to replace the batteries as soon as possible.
• You may want to try taking the remote batteries out and putting them back in. NOTE: After taking the batteries out, you may
need to reprogram the remote for use with accessory devices.

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
return your product.
WHAT IS COVERED?
BEFORE REQUESTING SERVICE...
Warranty coverage begins the day you buy your product. For one year
thereafter (30 days for the TV screen), all parts will be repaired or
replaced, and labor and transportation are free. After one year from the
day of purchase, you pay for the replacement or repair of all parts and
for all labor and transportation 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.
TO GET WARRANTY SERVICE...
Repair must be performed by an authorized service center or a factory
service center. If you do not live near a factory service center, contact
your dealer. If your dealer is an authorized service center, he will
arrange repair. If your dealer is not an authorized service center, he
will direct you to the authorized service center engaged by him to
service the products he sells.
WHAT IS EXCLUDED?
Your warranty does not cover:
• labor charges for installation or setup of the product, adjustment of
customer controls on the product, and installation or repair of
antenna systems outside of the product.
• product repair and/or part replacement because of misuse, accident, unauthorized repair or other cause not within the control of
Philips Consumer Electronics Company.
• reception problems caused by signal conditions or cable or antenna
systems outside the unit.
• a product that requires modification or adaptation to enable it to
operate in any country other than the country for which it was
designed, manufactured, approved and/or authorized, or repair of
products damaged by these modifications.
• incidental or consequential damages resulting from the product.
(Some states do not allow the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. This
includes, but is not limited to, prerecorded material, whether copyrighted or not copyrighted.)
• a product used for commercial or institutional purposes.
(In U.S.A., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands, all implied warranties,
including implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular
purpose, are limited in duration to the duration of this express warranty.
But, because some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied
warranty may last, this limitation may not apply to you.)
(In Canada, this warranty is given in lieu of all other warranties. No
other warranties are expressed or implied, including any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Philips is
not liable under any circumstances for any direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages, howsoever incurred, even if notified
of the possibility of such damages.)
IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS...
Please contact Philips at:
1-800-531-0039, if calling from the USA (English or Spanish Speaking)
1-800-661-6162, if calling from Canada (French Speaking)
1-800-531-0039, if calling from Canada (English or Spanish Speaking).
WHERE IS SERVICE AVAILABLE?
REMEMBER...
Warranty service is available in all countries where the product is officially distributed by Philips Consumer Electronics Company. In countries where Philips Consumer Electronics Company does not distribute
the product, the local Philips service organization will attempt to provide service (although there may be a delay if the appropriate spare
parts and technical manual(s) are not readily available).
