Note to the CATV Installer
Note on Caption Vision
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.
This television receiver provides display of television closed
captioning in accordance with
§ 15.119 of the FCC rules.
Use of this television for other than private viewing of
programs broadcast on UHF or VHF or transmitted by cable
companies for the use of the general public may require
authorization from the broadcaster-cable company and/or
program owner.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Operate the TV only on 120 V AC.
One blade of the power plug is wider than the other for
safety purposes and will fit into the power outlet only one
way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, contact your dealer.
If any liquid or solid object falls into the TV, unplug it and
have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it
further.
CAUTION
When using TV games, computers, and similar products
with your TV, keep the brightness and contrast functions at
low settings. If a fixed (non-moving) pattern is left on the
screen for long periods of time at a high brightness or
contrast setting, the image can be permanently imprinted
onto the screen. Continuously watching the same channel
can cause the imprint of station logos onto the TV screen.
These types of imprints are not covered by your warranty
because they are the results of misuse.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not use
this polarized plug with an extension cord,
receptacle, or other outlet unless the blades can
be fully inserted to prevent blade exposure.

completely, and keep this manual for future reference.
Carefully observe and comply with all warnings, cautions
and instructions placed on the set, or described in the
operating instructions or service manual.
WARNING
To guard against injury, the following basic safety
precautions should be observed in the installation, use, and
servicing of the set.Use
Use
Power Sources
This set should be operated only
from the type of power source
indicated on the serial/model
plate. If you are not sure of the type
of electrical power supplied to your
home, consult your dealer or local
power company. For those sets
designed to operate from battery
power, refer to the operating instructions.
Grounding or Polarization
This set is equipped with a polarized AC power cord plug
(a plug having one blade wider than the other), or with a
three-wire grounding type plug (a plug having a third pin
for grounding).
Refer to the following instructions:
For the set with a polarized AC power cord plug
This plug will fit into the power
outlet only one way. This is a
safety feature. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the
outlet, try reversing the plug. If
the plug still fails to fit, contact
your electrician to have a suitable outlet installed. Do not
defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug by forcing it in.
Alternate Warning
For the set with a three-wire grounding type AC plug
Do not disconnect the antenna or the power cord during a
heavy storm. Lightning may strike while you are holding
the cable or cord, causing serious injury. Turn off your TV
and wait for the weather to improve.
Object and Liquid Entry
Never push objects of any kind into the set
through the 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 set.
Attachments

recommended by the manufacturer, as
they may cause hazards.
Do not place any objects, especially
heavy objects, on top of the set. The
object may fall from the set, causing
injury.
Cleaning
Unplug the set from the wall outlet
before cleaning or polishing it. Do not
use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
Use a cloth lightly dampened with
water for cleaning the exterior of the set.
If a snapping or popping sound from a
TV set is continuous or frequent while the TV
is operating, unplug the TV and consult your
dealer or service technician. It is normal for
some TV sets to make occasional snapping or
popping sounds, particularly when being
turned on or off.
Installation
Always use two or more people to lift or move the set. The
set is heavy and the bottom surface is flat. Serious injury can
result from trying to move the set by yourself alone, or from
unsteady handling.
Install the set on a stable, level surface.

near water — for
example, near a
bathtub, washbowl,
kitchen sink, or
laundry tub, in a wet
basement, or near a
swimming pool, etc.
Overloading
Accessories
Do not
overload wall
outlets,
extension
cords or
convenience
receptacles
beyond their
capacity, since this can result in fire or electric shock.

set is left unattended and unused for long periods of time,
unplug it from the wall outlet as a precaution against the
possibility of an internal malfunction that could create a fire
hazard.
Do not place the set on an unstable cart, stand, tripod,
bracket, table, or shelf. The set may fall, causing serious
injury to a child or an adult, and serious damage to the set.
Use only a cart or stand recommended by the manufacturer
for the specific model of TV. Any mounting of the product
should follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and should
use a mounting accessory recommended by the
manufacturer. An appliance and cart combination should be
moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven

Lightning
For added protection for this television receiver 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
receiver due to lightning and power-line surges.
Service
Damage Requiring Service
Unplug the set from the wall outlet and refer servicing to
qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
•
When the power cord or
plug is damaged or frayed.
•
If liquid has been spilled
into the set or objects have
fallen into the product.
•
If the set has been exposed to
rain or water.
•
If the set has been subject to
excessive shock by being
dropped, or the cabinet has
been damaged.
•
If the set does not operate
normally when following the operating
instructions. Adjust only those controls
that are specified in the operating
instructions. Improper adjustment of
other controls may result in damage
and will often require extensive work
by a qualified technician to restore the
set to normal operation.
When the set exhibits a distinct change in
performance — this indicates a need for service.
Antennas
Outdoor Antenna Grounding
If an outdoor antenna is installed, follow the precautions
below. An outdoor antenna system should not be located in
the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or
power circuits, or where it can come in contact with such
power lines or circuits.

FROM CONTACTING SUCH POWER LINES OR
CIRCUITS AS CONTACT WITH THEM IS ALMOST
INVARIABLY FATAL.
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 Electrical Code (NEC)
in USA and Section 54 of the Canadian Electrical Code in
Canada 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 conductors, location of antenna discharge unit,
connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for
the grounding electrode.

yourself since opening the cabinet may
expose you to dangerous voltage or
other hazards. Refer all servicing to
qualified service personnel.
Replacement Parts
When replacement parts are required,
be sure the service technician certifies
in writing that he has used
replacement parts specified by the
manufacturer that have the same
characteristics as the original parts.
Unauthorized substitutions may
result in fire, electric shock, or other
hazards.
Safety Check
Upon completion of any service or repairs
to the set, ask the service technician to
perform routine safety checks (as specified
by the manufacturer) to determine that the
set is in safe operating condition, and to so
certify. When the set reaches the end of its
useful life, improper disposal could result
in a picture tube implosion. Ask a qualified
service technician to dispose of the set.
