When turned “on,” the software reads a code that most broadcasters send

and content themes. If you have blocked the rating or content themes that
the program contains when you tune to that program, you will receive the
message, “This program is blocked. Change channel or press DISPLAY to
enter password.”
Broadcasters are not required to provide content themes or age-based
ratings. Rated programs received with no content themes will only be
blocked if you block their age-based rating. You can also block movies with a

TROUBLESHOOTING
If you experience any difficulty with your TV, check these basic remedies
before calling your service technician.
TV will not turn on or controls don’t work
• Check to make sure it is plugged in.
• Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is “live”
by plugging in something else.
• Try unplugging set for one minute, plugging it back in, and then
turning it on again.
• Make sure the Front Panel Lock feature is not set. (See page 4 for
details.)
Problems with remote
• Maybe something is between the remote and the remote sensor.
• Maybe the remote is not aimed directly at the TV's remote sensor.
• Maybe batteries in remote are weak, dead or installed incorrectly. Try
replacing batteries.
Turns on or off while playing
• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a
power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then turn on again. If this happens
frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high.
