15. 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.
16. 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.
17. Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can result in fire or electric shock.
18. Never push objects of any kind into this television equipment through cabinet slots as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid
of any kind on the television equipment.
19. Do not attempt to service this television equipment yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you
to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

under the following conditions:
A. When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
B. If liquid has been spilled into the television equipment.
C. If the television equipment has been exposed to rain or water.
D. If the television equipment does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust
only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions as improper adjustment of other
controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to
restore the television equipment to normal operation.
E. If the television equipment has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
F. When the television equipment exhibits a distinct change in performance — this indicates a need for
service.
21. Upon completion of any service or repairs to this television equipment, ask the service technician to
perform routine safety checks to determine that the television is in safe operating condition.

Before Operating Your Television
Location
• For normal operation, your TV should be located in an area of the room where cool adequate ventilation
is provided. Do not place the back of the television set in a place where free airflow will be restricted.
• Any magnetic force may disturb the color picture. Make sure that magnets, electric clocks, toys using
magnets or any other magnetic substance, such as iron are kept well away from the TV set.
Power
Your TV operates on 120 Volts, 60 Hz (normal household current) and has a polarized plug. If you are
unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. Should it fail to fit, contact an
electrician. Do not defeat the safety feature of the polarized plug.
Note:
• If the set is not going to be used for a long period, such as during a vacation, unplug the set from the
wall outlet to economize power. (If the TV set is plugged in, a slight current still flows, even with the
POWER BUTTON in the OFF position.)
• Lines and other noise may appear in TV broadcast images when an FM tuner or radio is located near
the TV and both radio and TV broadcasts are being received. Should such noise appear, turn off the
radio.
• If you are listening to an AM broadcast, turn the TV off. AM broadcast signals may not be received
due to interference from the TV.
•
Before using the television, prepare the Remote Control
To use the remote control, insert batteries first.
Inserting the batteries
Pull up
Battery
Cover
• With your thumbnail, pull up the slit as indicated by the arrow to remove the battery cover. Insert two
batteries (size “AA”). Be sure to match the battery m/, terminals with the m/, marks inside the
compartment.
Antenna Connections
Antennas
• The antenna requirements for good color television reception are more important than those for black
& white television reception. For this reason, a good quality outdoor antenna is strongly recommended.
The following is a brief explanation of the type of connections that are provided with the various
antenna systems:
1. A 75-ohm system is generally a round cable with
F-type connector that can easily be attached to
a terminal without tools (not supplied).
2. A 300-ohm system is a flat “twin-lead” cable that
can be attached to a 75-ohm terminal through a
300/75-ohm ADAPTOR (not supplied).

CABLE TV (CATV) CONNECTION
• A 75 ohm coaxial cable connector is built into the set for easy hookup. When connecting the 75 ohm
coaxial cable to the set, screw the 75 ohm cable to the COAXIAL CABLE CONNECTOR.
• Some cable TV companies offer “premium pay channels”. Since the signals of these premium pay
channels are scrambled, a cable TV converter/descrambler is generally provided to the subscriber by
the cable TV company. This converter/descrambler is necessary for normal viewing of the scrambled
channels. (Set your TV on channel 3 or 4. Typically one of these channels is used. If this is unknown,
consult your cable TV company.) For more specific instructions on installing cable TV, consult your
cable TV company. One possible method of utilizing the converter/descrambler provided by your
cable TV company is explained below.
Please note: RF switch equipped with position A/B (not provided) is required.
“A” position on the RF switch (not supplied) : You can view all unscrambled channels using the TV’s
channel keys.
“B” position on the RF switch (not supplied) : You can view the scrambled channels via the converter/
descrambler using the converter’s channel keys.

broadcast, the closed captions will disappear momentarily.
• If no TEXT broadcast is being received while viewing in the TEXT mode, the screen may become
dark and blank for some programs. Should this occur, switch the Closed Caption mode to “OFF”.

• This function allows you to restrict TV programs and also allows you to control TV usage based on
FCC data. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes that may
be harmful.
• Restriction of TV programs includes two characters that contain information about the program’s MPAA
rating and the TV Parental Guidelines. MPAA is restricted by age. TV Parental Guidelines are restricted
by age and contents.
• Since a TV program may use either the MPAA rating or the TV Guidelines you should adjust both for
complete control.

MEDIDAS DE SEGURIDAD IMPORTANTES
PRECAUCIÓN : Lea por favor todas estas instrucciones antes de poner en funcionamiento
su televisor, y guárdelas para poder utilizarlas en el futuro.
La energía eléctrica permite realizar muchas funciones útiles. Este aparato ha sido diseñado y fabricado para
garantizar su seguridad física. Sin embargo, UNA UTILIZACIÓN INAPROPIADA PODRÍA SER LA CAUSA DE
DESCARGAS ELÉCTRICAS O INCENDIOS. Para mantener el buen funcionamiento de este equipo y evitar
problemas, siga las normas básicas indicadas a continuación cuando lo instale, utilice o repare.

Desenchufe el televisor del tomacorriente antes de limpiarlo.
No utilice líquidos ni aerosoles de limpieza. Para limpiar el televisor utilice un paño húmedo.
No utilice accesorios que no los recomiende el fabricante del televisor porque podrían causar peligros.
No utilice el televisor cerca del agua – por ejemplo, cerca de una bañera, lavado, fregadero o lavadora, en
un sótano húmedo, cerca de una piscina, etc.
No utilice este televisor sobre un carrito, un soporte o una mesa inestables. El televisor podría caerse
causando serías heridas a niños o adultos, y, por supuesto, el aparato se estropearía. Ponga el televisor
solamente sobre un carrito o soporte recomendado por el fabricante, o vendido junto con
el televisor.
La combinación de carrito y televisor debe moverse con mucho cuidado. Las paradas
rápidas, la fuerza excesiva y las superficies irregulares pueden ser la causa de que la
combinación de televisor y carrito se volteen.
Cuando instale el televisor en una pared o en una estantería siga las instrucciones del
fabricante, y utilice el kit de montaje aprobado por el fabricante.
Las ranuras y aberturas de la caja y del panel posterior o inferior sirven para la ventilación del aparato, para
que éste funcione bien y para evitar que se caliente. Estas aberturas no deben taparse nunca. Este televisor
no debe colocarse en un lugar cerrado (como un estante para libros) si éste no dispone de la ventilación
apropiada.
Las aberturas no deben taparse nunca con un paño u otro material; y las aberturas del panel inferior no
deben taparse tampoco colocando el televisor sobre una cama, sofá, alfombra u otra superficie similar.
Este televisor no debe ponerse nunca cerca o encima de un radiador u otro aparato que produzca calor.
Este televisor sólo debe funcionar con la fuente de corriente indicada en la etiqueta del fabricante. Si no
está seguro acerca del tipo de corriente de su hogar, póngase en contacto con el concesionario de quien
adquirió el televisor o con la compañía eléctrica local.
En el caso de equipos de televisión diseñados para funcionar con baterías, consulte las instrucciones de
uso.
Como medida de seguridad, el equipo de televisión está equipado con un enchufe polarizado de dos hilos.
El enchufe polarizado de dos hilos solamente calza de una sola manera en el tomacorriente.
Si el enchufe no entra en el tomacorriente, pídale a un electricista que le coloque un tomacorriente nuevo.
No modifique el enchufe porque anulará esta característica de seguridad.
No permita que se apoye nada sobre el cable de alimentación. No ponga este televisor donde el cable
pueda ser deformado por personas que caminen sobre él.

Cumpla con todos los avisos y las instrucciones marcados en el televisor.
Si se conecta una antena exterior al televisor, asegúrese de que el sistema de antena esté conectado a
tierra para obtener cierta protección ante los aumentos de voltaje y la acumulación de cargas estáticas.
La sección 810 del Código Eléctrico Nacional ofrece información relacionada con la conexión a tierra
correcta del poste y la estructura de apoyo, la conexión a tierra del cable de entrada a una unidad de
descarga, el tamaño de los conductores de conexión a tierra, la ubicación de la unidad de descarga de
antena, la conexión a los electrodos de conexión a tierra, y los requisitos para el electrodo de conexión a
tierra.
15.
Para proteger aún más este televisor durante tormentas eléctricas o cuando se deje sin atender y sin
utilizar durante largos periodos de tiempo, desenchufe el cable de alimentación del tomacorriente y
desconecte la antena. Esto evitará que el aparato pueda estropearse debido a los relámpagos y la
sobretensión en la línea de alimentación.
Un sistema de antena exterior no debe ubicarse cerca de líneas de alimentación elevadas, ni cerca de
luces eléctricas o circuitos de alimentación. Tampoco debe ubicarse donde pueda caer sobre tales líneas
o circuitos de alimentación. Cuando instale un sistema de antena exterior, tenga muchísimo cuidado
para no tocar las líneas o circuitos de alimentación porque el contacto podría causar un accidente mortal.
No sobrecargue los tomacorrientes ni los cables de extensión porque esto podría causar un incendio o
descarga eléctrica.
No meta nunca ningún objeto en el interior del televisor porque podría tocar piezas con alta tensión o
causar un cortocircuito con otras piezas causando un incendio o descarga eléctrica. No derrame nunca
ningún tipo de líquido sobre el televisor.
No trate de reparar el televisor usted mismo porque al abrir o quitar las tapas podría exponerse a una
descarga de tensión u otros peligros. Las reparaciones debe realizarlas el personal de servicio CALIFICADO.
Desenchufe este televisor del tomacorriente y solicite el servicio de un técnico calificado cuando se
produzcan las condiciones siguientes:
A. Cuando el cable de la alimentación o el enchufe estén estropeados.
B. Cuando haya derramado un líquido sobre el televisor.
C. Si el televisor ha quedado expuesto a la lluvia o al agua.
D. Si el televisor no funciona normalmente siguiendo las instrucciones de utilización. Ajuste solamente
los controles indicados en las instrucciones de utilización. Un ajuste inadecuado de otros controles
podría estropear el aparato y, entonces, sería necesario acudir a un técnico CALIFICADO para que
éste lo repare y lo devuelva a su condición normal.
E. Si el televisor se ha caído o la caja se ha estropeado.
F. Cuando las prestaciones del televisor cambien considerablemente será necesario llamar al servicio
de reparaciones.
Al finalizar cualquier servicio o reparación de este televisor, pida al técnico de servicio que realice
comprobaciones de seguridad rutinarias para determinar si el televisor puede funcionar sin causar ningún
problema.
Cuando sea necesario cambiar piezas, cerciórese de que el técnico de servicio utiliza las piezas de
CAMBIO especificadas por el fabricante, aquellas que tengan las mismas características que las piezas
originales. Las piezas de recambio no autorizadas pueden causar incendios, descargas eléctricas u
otros peligros.

INFORMATIONS IMPORTANTES (Suite)
ATTENTION:
• Ne placez pas le cordon d’alimentation sous le téléviseur ou sous tout autre objet lourd.
• Ne placez pas de bougies ni de flammes nues sur le téléviseur ou à sa proximité, afin d’éviter les incendies.
• Veillez à ne pas éclabousser ni faire tomber de l’eau sur ces appareils afin d’éviter les incendies ou les
électrocutions. Ne placez jamais d’objets remplis de liquide, comme des vases, sur ces appareils.
PRÉCAUTIONS IMPORTANTES
ATTENTION :
Veuillez lire toutes ces instructions avant d’utiliser votre télévision et conservezles pour un usage ultérieur.
L’énergie électrique peut exécuter de nombreuses fonctions utiles. Cet appareil a été conçu et fabriqué de façon
à garantir votre entière sécurité. CEPENDANT, TOUTE UTILISATION INADEQUATE PEUT ENTRAINER DES
RISQUES D’ELECTROCUTION OU D’INCENDIE. Afin de ne pas détruire les protections intégrées à cet appareil,
respectez les règles de base suivantes pour son installation, son utilisation et sa maintenance.
1.
Débranchez la télévision avant de la nettoyer.
2.
N’utilisez pas de nettoyants liquides ou d’aérosols et utilisez un chiffon humide.
3.
N’utilisez pas d’accessoires déconseillés par le fabricant de matériel vidéo, car ils impliquent des risques.
4.
N’utilisez pas cette télévision à proximité d’eau — par exemple, près d’une baignoire, d’un lavabo, d’un
évier ou d’un bac à laver, dans une cave humide ou près d’une piscine, etc.
5.
Ne placez pas cet équipement sur un chariot, un support ou une table instable. La télévision peut tomber
et provoquer de graves lésions à toute personne et causer de sérieux dommages à l’équipement. Utilisez
uniquement un support ou un chariot recommandé par le fabricant ou vendu avec la
télévision.
6.
L’ensemble télévision-chariot doit être déplacé délicatement. Les arrêts brusques, une
force excessive et des surfaces inégales peuvent renverser l’ensemble.
7.
L’installation au mur ou sur une tablette doit être réalisée conformément aux instructions
du fabricant et à l’aide d’un kit de montage approuvé par ce dernier.
8.
Les fentes et les ouvertures du châssis à l’arrière ou dans la partie inférieure sont prévus pour la ventilation.
Pour garantir un fonctionnement fiable de la télévision et pour la protéger de toute surchauffe, ces ouvertures
ne doivent être ni obturées, ni recouvertes. La télévision ne doit pas être placée dans un endroit encastré
tel qu’une bibliothèque, sauf si une ventilation adéquate est prévue.
9.
Les ouvertures ne doivent jamais être recouvertes par un chiffon ou autre et celles de la partie inférieure
ne doivent jamais être obturées si vous placez la télévision sur un lit, un sofa, un tapis ou toute surface
similaire. Cette télévision ne doit être placée ni à proximité d’un radiateur ou d’un registre de chaleur, ni
dessus.
10.
Cette télévision doit être alimentée uniquement par le type d’alimentation électrique indiqué sur l’étiquette.
Si vous n’êtes pas sûr du type d’alimentation de votre domicile, consultez votre revendeur de télévision
ou la compagnie d’électricité locale (EDF en France).
Pour la télévision conçue pour fonctionner sur batterie, reportez-vous au mode d’emploi.
11.
Du point de vue de la sécurité, la télévision est équipée d’une fiche polarisée à 2 fils (une lame plus
importante que l’autre). La fiche polarisée à 2 fils ne pénètre dans la prise électrique que dans un seul
sens.
Si la fiche ne correspond pas à la prise, demandez à votre électricien de remplacer la prise, elle doit être
obsolète. Ne modifiez pas la fiche et ne désactivez pas cette fonction de sécurité.
12.
Ne posez rien sur le cordon d’alimentation. Ne placez pas la télévision dans un emplacement où le
cordon d’alimentation est susceptible d’être endommagé par le passage répété de personnes.

PRÉCAUTIONS IMPORTANTES (Suite)
13.
Respectez tous les avertissements et instructions mentionnés sur la télévision.
14.
Si une antenne extérieure est raccordée à la télévision, veillez à ce que le système d’antenne soit relié à
la terre de façon à fournir une protection vis-à-vis des poussées de tension et des charges électrostatiques
accumulées. La section 810 du National Electrical Code fournit des informations relatives à une mise à la
terre correcte de la potence et de la structure portante, à une mise à la terre du fil d’entrée à une unité de
décharge d’antenne, aux dimensions des conducteurs de terre, à l’emplacement de l’unité de décharge
d’antenne, au raccordement des prises de terre ainsi qu’à leurs exigences.

15.
Pour tout ajout de protection à votre télévision en cas de foudre ou lorsque elle reste en veille et inutilisée
pendant de longues périodes, débranchez-la et déconnectez l’antenne. Vous éviterez ainsi des dommages
à votre équipement suite à la foudre et des poussées de tension.
16.
Un système d’antenne extérieure ne doit pas être situé à proximité de lignes aériennes ou d’autres
groupes électrogènes ou circuits électriques ou dans des emplacements où l’antenne pourrait tomber sur
ce type de lignes ou circuits. Lors de l’installation d’un système d’antenne extérieure, faites extrêmement
attention à ne pas entrer en contact avec ces lignes ou circuits, car cela pourrait vous être fatal.
17.
Ne surchargez pas les prises et les prolongateurs de ligne afin d’éviter tout risque d’incendie ou
d’électrocution.
18.
N’introduisez jamais d’objets à travers les fentes du châssis, car ils pourraient entrer en contact avec des
points de tension dangereux ou des pièces court-circuitées et provoquer ainsi un incendie ou une
électrocution. Ne répandez jamais de liquides sur la télévision.
19.
N’essayez pas de réparer vous-même votre télévision. L’ouverture ou le retrait des capots peut vous
exposer à une tension dangereuse ou à d’autres risques. Confiez toutes les opérations de maintenance
à un personnel qualifié.
20.
Lorsque vous êtes confronté aux situations suivantes, débranchez la télévision et confiez toutes les
opérations de maintenance à un personnel qualifié :
A. lorsque le cordon d’alimentation ou la fiche est endommagé ou effiloché ;
B. si du liquide a été répandu sur/dans la télévision ;
C. si la télévision a été exposée à la pluie ou à l’eau ;
D. si la télévision ne fonctionne pas normalement même en respectant le mode d’emploi. Réglez
uniquement les commandes abordées par le mode d’emploi. Des réglages inappropriés d’autres
commandes peuvent occasionner des dommages et nécessiteront ensuite, dans la plupart des cas,
une intervention plus importante d’un technicien qualifié pour que la télévision fonctionne
normalement ;
E. si la télévision a été renversée ou que le châssis est endommagé ;
F. lorsque la télévision présente une altération visible des performances — cela indique un besoin de
maintenance.
21.
Pour toute maintenance ou réparation de la télévision, demandez au technicien de réaliser des contrôles
de sécurité classiques afin de déterminer si la télévision est en bon état de marche.
22.
Lorsqu’un remplacement de pièces se révèle nécessaire, veillez à ce que le technicien utilise des pièces
de rechange spécifiées par le fabricant et qu’elles aient les mêmes caractéristiques que la pièce d’origine.
Des remplacements non autorisés peuvent occasionner un incendie, une électrocution ou d’autres risques.
