Chapter 1: Connections & Setup

Things to Consider Before You Connect

Protect Against Power Surges

• Connect all components before you plug any of their power cords into the wall outlet.

• Turn off the TV/DVD and/or component before you connect or disconnect any cables.

• Make sure all antennas and cables are properly grounded. Refer to the Important Safety

Instructions on page 1.

Protect Components from Overheating

• Don’t block ventilation holes on any of the components. Arrange the components so that air can circulate freely.

• Don’t stack components.

• If you place components in a stand, make sure you allow adequate ventilation.

• If you connect an audio receiver or amplifier, place it on the top shelf so the heated air from it won’t flow around other components.

Position Cables Properly to Avoid Audio Interference

• Insert each cable firmly into the designated jack.

• If you place components above the TV/DVD, route all cables down the side of the back of the

TV/DVD instead of straight down the middle of the TV/DVD.

• If your antenna uses 300-ohm twin lead cables, do not coil the cables. Also, keep the twin lead cables away from audio/video cables.

Important Stand and Base Safety Information

Choose the location for your TV/DVD carefully. Place the TV/DVD on a stand or base that is of adequate size and strength to prevent the TV/DVD from being accidentally tipped over, pushed off, or pulled off. This could cause personal injury and/or damage the TV/DVD. Refer to the

Important Safety Instructions on page 1.

Use Indirect Light

Don’t place the TV/DVD where sunlight or room lighting will be directed toward the screen. Use soft or indirect lighting.

COMPONENT INPUTS Lets you connect a component video source, such as a VCR.

CMP1 Y PB PR (Component Video) Provides optimum picture quality because the video is separated into three signals. Use three video-grade cables for the connection.

When using CMP1 Y PB PR, make sure to connect left and right audio cables to the CMP1

L and R Audio Input jacks.

CMP1 L (Audio) Provides left audio connection. The left audio connector is usually white.

CMP1 R (Audio) Provides right audio connection. The right audio connector is usually red.

COMPOSITE INPUTS Lets you connect another component such as a VCR, DVD player, or laserdisc player. Its AUDIO jacks are the same as described for CMP1 above.

VID1 S-VIDEO Provides better picture quality than the video jacks (VID1 and 2 Video) because the color part of the picture is separated from the black and white part of the picture. When using VID1 S-VIDEO, make sure to connect left and right audio cables to the VID1 L/MONO and R Audio Input jacks.

VID1 V (Video) Provides composite video connection. The video connector is usually yellow.

VID2 S-VIDEO, V and L/MONO and R Audio Allows you to connect a component such as a VCR, DVD player, or laserdisc player. Their description is the same as VID1 above.

Note: For each VID jack group (VID1 and VID2), you may connect either an S-Video or

Video cable. Do not connect both at the same time in either of the VID jack groups.

DVI-HDTV Input Lets you connect an HDTV Tuner with a DVI output.

DVI (Digital Visual Interface) Provides an uncompressed, digital video interface developed for high-bandwidth digital connection. It supports the overlay of highresolution graphics needed by some electronic program guide navigation and other interactive services. DVI, when combined with HDCP (High bandwidth Digital Content

Protection) technology, creates a protected digital connection. The DVI-HDTV connection is designed to display either progressive scan (480p) or HDTV (1080i) signals at a bandwidth of up to 1.78 Gigabits per second.

L (Audio) Provides left audio connection when using the DVI jack. The left audio connector is usually white.

R (Audio) Provides right audio connection when using the DVI jack. The right audio connector is usually red.

When the channel search is complete, press OK to access the List & Labels screen.

Changing Lists and Labels

The List & Labels part of the setup lets you edit your channel list and choose or create a personal six-character label for each channel.

Note: Changing List and Labels can be time consuming. You can change these at a later time by accessing the Setup menu.

1. Press the left or right arrow to scroll through the channels and choose the one you want to edit.

2. Press the down arrow to highlight the In channel list option. Press the left or right arrow button to add (the box is checked) or remove (the box is unchecked) the channel from the list.

3. Press the down arrow to highlight the Channel label option. Press the left or right arrow button to scroll through the available list of 25 most common labels. The last option in the list allows you to create your own six-character label for the channel (the first letter of the label is highlighted).

4. Press the 1 or 2 number button to change the first letter of the label.

5. Press the right arrow to highlight the second letter, then press the 1 or 2 number button to change the second letter, etc.

6. When you are finished creating your label, press OK. Select Go back to go to the Auto Convergence menu.

Note:

If you're using an HD source (such as an HDTV tuner or HDTV satellite receiver) on the CMPNT or DVI input, you should run Auto convergence separately for that input as well. Tune to the input you’re using for the HD source, then go to page 48 for information on Auto convergence.

Auto Convergence

Your TV/DVD’s picture tubes might have been disturbed during delivery or after you moved the TV/DVD, causing the color in your TV/DVD to be out of alignment. The colors adjust by starting auto convergence.

IMPORTANT: Auto convergence works best once the TV/DVD has warmed up for at least an hour. If you've just unpacked your TV/DVD, it's a good idea to repeat the Auto convergence function when the TV/DVD's been running for at least an hour. See page 48 for more information about Auto convergence.

1. Press OK to begin auto convergence.

2. When the auto convergence is complete, the Red center convergence menu appears. The cross in the middle of the screen should be yellow. If it is not, use the arrow buttons to move the red cross to overlap the green cross.

Press OK when adjustments are complete.

3. The Blue center convergence menu appears with a cyan cross in the middle of the screen. If it is not, use the arrow buttons to move the blue cross to overlap the green cross. Press OK (the TV tunes to the last selected/ available channel in the channel list).

You don't need to run Auto convergence separately for the internal DVD player – the procedure for the TV covers the internal DVD player as well.

Indicator

Programming the Remote to Operate

Other Components

The universal remote can be programmed to operate most brands of remote controllable components. The remote is already programmed to operate most

RCA, GE, and Proscan components.

Also, the AUX•HD button can be programmed to operate most brands of an additional remote-controllable component (such as a VCR, DVD player, satellite receiver or cable box).

Note: The TV button can’t be programmed on this remote.

IMPORTANT: Don't program the DVD button on this remote to control a different (external) DVD player unless you don't plan to use this remote with your internal DVD player. If you program the DVD button to control an external DVD player, then the remote won't control the internal DVD player.

You’ll use these buttons when you program the remote.

Important: The remote may not be compatible with all models of all brands of components. It also may not operate all functions of the remote that came with your component.

Find Out If You Need to Program the Remote

To determine whether the universal remote needs to be programmed to operate one of the components connected to your TV, such as a VCR, do the following:

1. Turn on the component (in this example, a VCR).

2. Point the remote at the component.

3. Press the corresponding component button (in this example, the AUX•HD button).

4. Press ON•OFF to see if the VCR responds. If the VCR doesn’t respond, you need to program the remote to operate it.

Programming the Remote

There are two ways to program the remote control:

• automatic code search

• direct entry

Tip

To stop the automatic code search without programming any components, press and hold

CLEAR until the indicator on the remote turns off.

Using Automatic Code Search

The following instructions can be used to program the remote to operate each of your components. If you want to stop the automatic code search without programming any of your components, press CLEAR until the indicator on the remote turns off.

1. Turn on the component you want to operate (VCR, HD receiver, etc.)

2. Press and hold the component button you want to program (AUX•HD).

While holding the component button, press and hold ON•OFF until the indicator on the remote turns on, then release both buttons.

3. Point the remote at the component. Keep the remote pointed at the component until the end of this step.

Press and release PLAY, then wait 5 seconds or until the indicator on the remote stops flashing.

Using the Remote Control Using the Remote Control

Important

You must continue pressing the component button while you enter the code.

Let’s say you have a Zenith VCR player. To program the universal remote to operate the

VCR, you would:

Press and hold the AUX•HD button while you enter the first code listed for Zenith in the

VCR Codes column.

Release the AUX•HD button. Press ON•OFF to see if the VCR player responds. If it doesn’t, follow the same steps, but enter the second code for Zenith VCR players instead of the first.

At this point the remote is searching for the correct code to program. If, after 5 seconds, the component you want to operate does not turn off, press PLAY again to tell the remote to search the next set of codes.

Continue pressing PLAY until the component turns off or the indicator light on the remote turns off. If the indicator light turns off, then all codes for that particular component have been tested once. If the component does not turn off, then the remote can’t be programmed to operate that component.

If the component you want to control does turn off:

1. Press and release REVERSE, then wait 2 seconds. Repeat this step until the device turns back ON.

2. To finish, press and hold STOP until the indicator on the remote turns off.

A code that controls your component has been saved to that remote button.

Using Direct Entry

1. Turn on the component to be programmed.

2. Look up the brand and code number(s) for the component on the code list in this section.

3. Press and hold the component button you want to program on the remote.

4. Enter the code from the remote control code list on the following pages. If the indicator flashes, you have either entered an invalid code or the button isn’t programmable.

5. Release the component button, point the remote at the component and then press ON•OFF to see if the component responds to the command. If it doesn’t, try pressing the component button and then ON•OFF again.

• If you get no response, repeat these steps using the next code listed for your brand, until the component responds to the remote commands.

• If you try all the codes for your component brand and none work, try the automatic code search method. If automatic code search doesn’t find the code, the remote is not compatible with your component.

How to Use the Remote After You’ve Programmed It

Because this universal remote can control several different components (TV,

DVD, and a VCR, satellite receiver, etc.) it uses operational modes triggered by the component buttons. For example, if you want the remote to control the TV, you would press the TV button to put the remote into TV mode before you could control the TV.

1. Press the appropriate component button (AUX•HD, DVD, or TV) to set the remote to control the component.

2. Press ON•OFF to turn the component on or off.

3. Use the remote buttons that apply to that component.

Notes:

• The remote may not be compatible with all brands and models of components. It also may not operate all functions of the remote that came with your component.

• If you keep pressing buttons and nothing happens, the remote is probably in the wrong mode. You must press the component button that matches the component you want to operate (i.e., if you want to operate the DVD player, press DVD on the remote control to put the remote in DVD mode.)

Using the INPUT Button

Use the INPUT button to scroll through the available input channels and view components you have connected to the TV.

1. Press TV to place the remote in TV mode. Make sure the component you want to view is turned on.

2. Press INPUT to tune to an available input channel.

3. To return to the channel you were previously watching on TV, press CH+ or

CH- button.

Chapter 3: Playing DVDs

Regional Coding

Both the TV/DVD unit and the discs are coded by region. These regional codes must match in order for the disc to play. If the codes don’t match, the disc won’t play. This unit’s code is region 1.

Using Different Menus

Each disc is programmed with different features. There are three separate menu paths that you can use to access features:

The Disc menu – The disc menu is part of each disc and is separate from the DVD’s menu system. The contents of each disc menu vary according to how the disc was authored and what features are included. The disc menu is turned on and off (while the disc is playing) with the PRESETS/DISC MENU button on the remote.

The DVD’s Info Display – The Info Display appears as icons across the top of the screen when a disc is playing. It can only be accessed while you are playing a disc. It’s turned on and off with the INFO button on the remote.

The DVD’s menu system – The DVD player's menu system is accessed only when a disc isn’t playing. It appears when the STOP button is pressed.

A feature only works if the disc was programmed with that feature. If a menu item is “grayed out”, that item isn’t available.

In addition to the DVD menus, the TV/DVD offers an abbreviated TV Main Menu while you're using the DVD player. To access the picture, sound and image controls for the TV while using the internal DVD player, press the TV button on your remote.

Loading and Playing Discs

Your TV/DVD unit plays DVD discs, Video CD discs, Audio CD discs, mp3 discs and CD-R discs. Before you load a disc, make sure that it is compatible with the player. The following discs CANNOT be used with this player:

• Laserdiscs, CD-I, CD-ROM (computer-only discs), CD-RW, DVD-ROM, Discs recorded using other broadcast standards

(i.e. PAL or SECAM)

��

��� ����� ��

This is an example of a one-sided disc.

This is an example of a

2-sided disc.

The title is in the center.

To Load and Play a Disc

To put the TV/DVD in DVD mode and play a disc, press the DVD button on the remote control.

1. Press the OPEN/CLOSE button on the front of the TV/DVD. The disc tray opens.

2. Place a disc gently into the tray with the disc’s label facing up (double-sided discs have content on both sides, so you can place either side up).

3. Press the OPEN/CLOSE or PLAY button. The disc tray closes.

The TV/DVD reads the disc’s table of contents, and then one of three things happens depending on how the disc was programmed:

• The disc starts playing.

• The disc menu appears on the screen. One of the options will start disc play. Highlight that option and press OK on the remote.

• The DVD’s main menu appears on the screen. Highlight the Play option and press OK on the remote.

When you stop playing a disc, the unit remembers where you stopped. When you start playing the disc again, the unit picks up where you left off unless the disc is removed, the unit is unplugged, or you pressed the STOP button twice.

Using a Disc Menu

A disc is capable of having an on-screen menu that is separate from the DVD’s menu system and on-screen Info Display. The disc menu might only contain a list of the titles and chapters, or it may allow you to change features such as language and playback settings. The content and operation of disc menus vary from disc to disc.

Using the On-Screen Info Display

The on-screen Info Display contains many playback features. To see the Info Display, press the

INFO button on the remote while a disc is playing. The Info Display appears across the top of the screen. Each feature is illustrated with an icon. Use the left/right arrow buttons on the remote to move through the different icons in the Info Display.

When an icon is highlighted, use the up/down arrow buttons on the remote to scroll through the choices displayed in the text box under the icons.

Remember, you can only access the Info Display when you’re playing a disc. Also, the Info

Display features are only available if the disc was created with that particular feature (i.e., if you select the Subtitle icon, you won’t be able to change the subtitle language unless the author of the disc created the disc with subtitles).

The invalid symbol appears on the screen when you press a button that doesn’t have any function. If one of the icons is “grayed out,” that Info Display feature isn’t available for the disc you’re playing. To make the Info Display disappear from the screen, press INFO on the remote.

Note: For information about the Info Display for Audio CDs, Video CDs or mp3 files, go to page 49.

Time Display

This feature displays the audio/video time. For DVD discs, the time displayed refers to the current title time. For Audio CDs, it refers to the current track time.

For DVD video discs, the Time Display also acts as a Time Search feature. This lets you go to a particular scene in a movie by entering the time that scene is played. To use Time Search:

1. Press INFO on the remote to bring up the Info Display. Highlight the Time Display and enter the elapsed time of the scene you wish to go to. For example, enter 01:12:00 to go to the scene that plays at 1 hour and twelve minutes into the movie.

2. If you enter the complete time, the disc automatically jumps to the elapsed time you entered.

If you're entering a partial time, press OK on the remote to enter the number.

22 Chapter 3 Chapter 3 23

Playing DVDs

Selecting a Title

Some discs contain more than one title. Each title is divided into chapters. To select a title:

1. While the disc is playing, press INFO on the remote to bring up the Info Display.

2. If the Title icon on the Info Display isn’t highlighted, use the left/right arrow buttons to highlight it.

3. Use the number button(s) on the remote to enter the title number or press the up/down arrow buttons to go to the next/previous title.

4. If you enter a complete title number, the disc automatically jumps to the beginning of the title. If you're entering a partial title number, press OK on the remote to enter the number.

Note: Some discs only have one title.

Selecting a Chapter

Because DVD discs use digital technology, a title can be divided into individual chapters (similar to tracks on a CD). You can skip to a specific chapter by using the Chapter feature in the Info Display.

1. While a disc is playing, press INFO on the remote to bring up the Info Display.

2. Press the left/right arrow buttons to highlight the Chapter icon.

3. Use the number buttons on the remote to enter the number of the chapter you want to play or press the up/down arrow buttons to go to the next/previous title.

4. To make the Info Display disappear, press the INFO button on the remote.

Notes: The Chapter feature won’t work if the disc isn’t formatted with separate chapters.

Press CH + or CH – on the remote to highlight the Chapter icon. Then press CH + to advance to the next chapter or CH – to go to the preceding chapter.

Selecting Subtitles

By default, subtitles are off. To turn subtitles on and change the Subtitle language while you’re watching a

DVD disc:

1. While the disc is playing, press CC/SUBTITLE on the remote.

2. Press the left/right arrow buttons to highlight the Subtitle icon.

3. Use the up/down arrow buttons to turn subtitles on or off, and to scroll through the subtitle languages that are available on the disc. If subtitles aren’t available, the text in the text box will read Subtitles:

Not Available. If subtitles are available, the language currently showing in the text box is the active selection. The subtitles will be shown in that language.

4. To make the Info Display disappear, press the INFO button on the remote.

Notes: Subtitles are only available if the disc was created with subtitles.

Changing the subtitle language with the Info Display will only affect the disc currently being played.

When the disc is removed or the unit is turned off, the subtitle language will revert to the language setting specified through the DVD’s main menu. The subtitle language can also be changed through the DVD’s main menu.

Changing the Audio Language

If the disc was created with different language tracks (recorded in different languages), you can use the

Info Display to temporarily change the DVD’s Audio Language setting.

1. While a disc is playing, press INFO on the remote.

2. Press the left and right arrow buttons to highlight the audio icon. The current audio language appears in the text box below the row of icons.

3. Press the up/down arrow buttons to scroll through the audio languages available on the disc until the audio language you want to use appears in the text box. Audio will be played in that language.

4. To make the Info Display disappear, press the INFO button on the remote.

Notes: The language feature only works if the disc was created with multiple audio tracks.

When you choose an audio language from the Info Display, you only override the audio language setting in the DVD’s main menu temporarily. The audio language can also be changed through the

DVD’s main menu.

Using the Repeat Feature

The default mode for the Repeat feature is Off. There are four Repeat options:

• Disc – repeats the disc that is playing

• Title – repeats the title that is playing

• Chapter – repeats the chapter that is playing

• A•B – Set the beginning (point A) and the end (point B) to make this part of the movie play repeatedly.

To Use Repeat:

1. While a disc is playing, press INFO on the remote to bring up the Info Display.

2. Highlight the Repeat icon. The text in the text box below the icons will read Repeat Mode: Off.

3. Press the up/down arrow buttons to scroll through the Repeat options until the Repeat option you want is displayed in the text box.

4. Press OK. The selected repeat option will loop repeatedly until you turn Repeat off. Repeat is turned off by completing steps 1 through 3 above, and selecting the Off option.

A•B Repeat

A•B Repeat lets you define a specific segment on the disc that you want to repeat. For example, you might like to watch the dogfight in the movie Top Gun. To watch this scene over and over:

1. Find the spot on the disc that is a few seconds before the beginning of the scene you want to repeat

(this gives you time to access the Info Display and the Repeat feature).

2. Press INFO on the remote and select the Repeat icon from the Info Display.

3. Press the up/down arrow buttons until the A•B Repeat option is shown in the text box underneath the icons. The text box reads Repeat Mode: A-B Press OK to Set A Point.

4. At the beginning of the scene you want to repeat, press OK to set the A point.

5. When you get to the part of the disc that you want to be the end of the repeated segment (the B point), press OK. The segment will repeat until you turn Repeat off.

6. To make the Info Display disappear from the screen, press the INFO button on the remote.

How to Cancel Repeat

There are three ways to cancel Repeat:

• Press STOP twice.

• Go to the Repeat icon in the Info Display and select Off.

• Eject the disc.

Changing the Camera Angle

Some discs contain multiple angles of a particular scene or sequence. If the disc only has one angle, this feature won’t work. When multiple angles are available, the Camera Angle icon appears in the upper right corner of the screen. To change the camera angle:

1. While a disc is playing, press INFO on the remote.

2. The Camera Angle icon will display the number of angles available. For example, if there are 3 different angles, the icon will read 1 of 3. This means angle 1 is currently being played.

3. The text box beneath the icons displays Camera Angle: 1. Use the up/down arrow buttons to scroll through the camera angle choices. The camera angle number displayed in the text window is automatically shown.

Note:

This section describes the Parental Control feature associated with TV broadcasts (cable, satellite and/or off-air). The Parental Control feature used with DVD discs is explained on

page 39 (the Lock menu).

Parental Controls and V-Chip

The choices in the US V-CHIP and Canada V-CHIP menus involve software inside your TV (referred to as V-Chip) which allows you to block TV programs and movies based on violence, sex, or other content you may believe children should not view.

Once you block programs, you can unblock programs by entering a password.

By default, the software inside your TV is turned “off.” For instructions to turn on V-Chip, go to page 34.

Note: Parental Control settings are not available for DVI or CMP1 inputs.

How V-Chip Works for USA and Canada

V-Chip reads the program’s age-based rating (TV-MA, TV-14, etc.) and content themes [(Violence (V), Adult Language (L), etc.)]. If you have blocked the rating and/or content themes that the program contains, you will receive the message

This channel has not been approved for viewing. Change channel or press OK to enter password and temporarily deactivate the Parental Control.

Broadcasters are not required to provide content themes, so programs received with no content themes will only be blocked if you block their age-based rating. You can also block out programs that have been given an Exempt rating, and programs that are considered unrated. The next several pages have tables showing the TV age-based ratings and content themes for the US and Canada.

US V-Chip TV Rating Limit

The V-Chip TV Rating Limit lets you decide which TV programs can and cannot be viewed.

To set TV programming limits:

1. Choose Parental Control from the MAIN MENU. If Parental Controls have previously been locked, you must enter your password.

2. Highlight and select US V-Chip. Then select V-Chip TV Rating.

3. Once you get to the V-Chip TV rating limit screen, use the arrow buttons and OK on your remote to change the status of a TV program rating or content theme from View to Block.

4. For TV rating limits to take effect, lock Parental Controls by accessing the

Lock parental controls menu.

The following sections give you more details about how to change the status of

TV program limits.

Note: If you forget your password, follow step one above to get to the password entry screen. Then press the VOL+ and CH+ buttons on the TV's front panel at the same time for at least 8 seconds. You will receive an on-screen message that Parental Controls have been unlocked once you've successfully reset the password.

Rated Titles

The Rated Titles option lets you determine how your DVD will react to discs that contain movies that are rated (in the U.S.A., the Motion Pictures Association of America rates movies as G, PG, PG-13, etc.). You decide which ratings require a password and which ones don’t. This system ranks the ratings 1 through 8 in order to accommodate different countries’ ratings systems (1 is considered a movie title with the least offensive material).

In order for the Rating Level feature to work, the disc must be encoded with rating information. If the author of the disc did not encode rating information, then this feature will not work for that disc. When in DVD mode, the TV/DVD must be locked in order for it to enforce the settings in the Ratings Limits part of the Lock menu.

1. From the Lock menu, highlight Ratings Limits and press OK (the Ratings Limits menu is displayed).

2. Highlight Rated Titles and press OK (the 8-level rating limits list appears).

• The ratings that require a password appear above the bar, in the red part of the block.

4. When you have moved the bar to the desired setting, press OK. You're returned to the

Rated Titles screen and the setting appears to the right of the Rated Titles option. For example, if you set 3 as the highest rating for Free Access (green), then the Rated Titles selection appears as 3 (that’s the DVD’s number for PG in the 8-level system) for the movie studio’s rating. This means when the DVD is locked, it will require you to enter the password to play any discs that are rated higher than 3 (i.e., PG-13 or NC-17).

5. Press the left arrow button to return to the main screen.

Unrated Titles

Some titles (movies) aren’t rated, but may contain material that is unsuitable for children.

Care and Cleaning

CAUTION: Turn OFF your TV/DVD before cleaning.

You can clean the TV/DVD as required, using a soft lint-free cloth. Be sure to occasionally dust the ventilation slots in the cabinet to help assure adequate ventilation.

The TV/DVD’s screen may be cleaned with a soft, lint-free cloth as well. Take care not to scratch or mar the screen. If necessary, you may use a cloth dampened with warm water. Never use strong cleaning agents, such as ammonia-based cleaners, or abrasive powder. These types of cleaners will damage the TV/DVD.

While cleaning do not spray liquid directly on the screen, or allow liquid to run down the screen and inside the TV/DVD. Also, never place drinks or vases with water on top of the TV/DVD. This could increase the risk of fire or shock hazard or damage to the TV/DVD.

Caution: Using video games or any external accessory with fixed images for extended periods of time can cause them to be permanently imprinted on the picture tube (or projection TV picture tubes). ALSO, some network/program logos, phone numbers, etc. may cause similar damage. This damage is not covered by your warranty.

Handling Cautions

• Before connecting other components to this TV/DVD, be sure to turn all components off.

• Don’t move the TV/DVD while a disc is being played. The disc may get scratched or broken, and the TV/DVD’s internal parts may be damaged.

• Don’t put any container filled with liquid or any small metal objects on the TV/DVD.

• Be careful not to put your hand into the disc tray.

• Don’t place anything other than the disc in the disc tray.

• Exterior influences such as lightning and static electricity can affect normal operation of this player. If this occurs, turn the TV/DVD off and on again with the ON•OFF button, or disconnect and then reconnect the AC power cord to the AC power outlet. The TV/

DVD will operate normally.

• Be sure to remove the disc and turn off the TV/DVD after use.

Formation of Condensation

• Due to sharp changes in temperature and humidity, condensation may form if warm air comes in contact with any cold parts inside the TV/DVD.

• When condensation forms inside the TV/DVD, it may not operate correctly. If this occurs, leave the TV/DVD at room temperature until the inside of the disc tray becomes dry and operational.

• If condensation forms on a disc, wipe the disc with a soft, dry cloth by moving the cloth from the center hole toward the outer edge.
