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 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
packed separately.
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, route all cables down the side of the back of the TV instead
of straight down the middle of the TV.
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 carefully. Place the TV on a stand or base that is of adequate size and
strength to prevent the TV from being accidentally tipped over, pushed off, or pulled off. This could
cause personal injury and/or damage the TV. Refer to the Important Safety Instructions packed
separately.
Use Indirect Light
Don’t place the TV where sunlight or room lighting will be directed toward the screen. Use soft or
indirect lighting.
Cables Needed to Connect Components to Your TV

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, DVD player, etc.)
2. Press and hold the component button you want to program (VCR, DVD, etc.).
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. Press and release PLAY (the indicator light
on the remote flashes).
The remote is searching for the correct code to program. When the indicator
stops flashing (after about 5 seconds), 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 the 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.
Note: Each time you press PLAY, the remote sends about 10 sets of codes. Therefore, you
might have to press the PLAY button up to 20 times.
If the component you want to control does turn off:
1. Press and release REVERSE, then wait 2 seconds. Repeat this step until the
component turns back ON.
2. To finish, press and hold STOP until the indicator on the remote turns off.
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 4-digit 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.
6. Point the remote at the component. 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.

Using the Remote Control
How to Use the Remote After You’ve Programmed It
Because this universal remote can control several different components (TV, DVD,
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 (DVD, TV, VCR, SAT•CAB, AUX, AUDIO)
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.
Note: 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 VCR, press VCR on the remote control to put the remote
in VCR mode.)
Volume Punchthrough Feature
You may find this feature helpful if you’ve connected your components to an
audio/video receiver (A/V receiver) or amplifier, but you want to use the TV’s
remote control to operate the volume for a component that is connected to the
audio/video receiver. An example follows:
Let’s say you’ve connected your DVD player to your audio/video receiver. You’ve
also programmed your TV remote control to operate your DVD player. Since the
DVD player gets its volume through the audio/video receiver, you would have to
bounce back and forth between two remote controls: the A/V receiver’s remote to
adjust the volume and the TV’s remote control to operate the DVD player.
The Volume Punchthrough feature eliminates the need for you to use two remote
controls and saves a button press when you’re using the TV remote to adjust the
volume. In effect, you are telling the TV remote to retrieve and send volume
commands from the a/v receiver whenever the TV remote is in DVD mode.
Therefore, after you’ve successfully set up the Volume Punchthrough feature,
whenever the TV remote is in DVD mode (press the DVD button) and you want to
adjust the volume, you only have to press the VOL + or VOL- buttons. Follow the
instructions below to set up Volume Punchthrough.
1. IMPORTANT: First, you must program the AUDIO button on the TV’s remote
control to operate your audio receiver or amplifier. Go to page 10 for
instructions. If you can’t program this remote to operate your audio receiver,
Volume Punchthrough won’t work.
2. While setting up Volume Punchthrough, it’s best to point the remote away
from components.
3. Decide which mode the remote will be in when the volume from the audio
receiver “punches through.” The mode will be one of the component buttons
(TV, DVD, SAT/CAB, VCR, or AUX).
4. Press and hold the VOL- button. Keep pressing VOL- while you press and release
the component button you chose in step 3 (TV, DVD, SAT/CAB, or AUX).
5. Press and release the AUDIO button since the sound will be coming from the
audio/video receiver. Release the VOL- button.

Using the Remote Control
6. Now, test it by turning on your audio receiver or amplifier.
7. Turn on the component that is connected to the audio/video receiver or
amplifier (a DVD player, for example).
8. Put the TV’s remote in DVD mode by pressing the DVD button, and play a disc.
9. Press VOL+ or VOL-. The volume from the audio receiver should increase or
decrease accordingly.
Deleting ALL Volume Punchthrough Commands

Why You Should Use the Auto Tuning Feature
The auto tuning feature tunes the TV to the correct channel for different
components you have connected to your TV (like a VCR, DVD Player, etc.). When
you set up auto tuning in the menu system you don’t have to remember to change
your TV to channel 3, for example, when you want to watch the tape in your VCR.
How to Set Up the Auto Tuning Feature
The way you set up the auto tuning feature in the TV’s menu corresponds to the
component buttons on the remote and the way you have each component
connected to your TV. When you set up auto tuning, you’re telling the TV what
channel to tune to when you press the VCR or DVD button on the remote control.
1. Press MENU (the MAIN MENU appears).
2. Highlight Setup and press OK on your remote control.
3. Highlight Auto Tuning and press OK.

Parental Controls and V-Chip
The choices in the USA V-CHIP menu 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 24.
How V-Chip Works
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 a rating of Not Rated, and
programs that are considered unrated. The TV age-based ratings and content
themes you can block follow:
USA V-Chip Rating System
TV-MA (Mature Audience Only) Specifically designed to be viewed by adults and
may be unsuitable for children under 17. It contains one or more of the following
content themes: crude indecent language (L), explicit sexual activity (S), or
graphic violence (V).
TV-14 (Parents Strongly Cautioned) Contains some material that many parents
would find unsuitable for children under 14. Parents are strongly urged to exercise
greater care in monitoring this program and are cautioned against letting children
under the age of 14 watch unattended. This program contains one or more of the
following content themes: intensely suggestive dialogue (D), strong coarse
language (L), intense sexual situations (S), or intense violence (V).
TV-PG (Parental Guidance Suggested) Contains material that parents may find
unsuitable for younger children. Many parents may want to watch it with their
younger children. The program contains one or more of the following content
themes: some suggestive dialogue (D), infrequent coarse language (L), some sexual
situations (S), or moderate violence (V).
TV-G (General Audience) Most parents would find this program suitable for all
ages. It contains little or no sexual dialogue (D) or situations (S), no strong
language (L), and little or no violence (V).
TV-Y7 (Directed to Children 7 years and older) Designed for children ages 7 and
above. It may be more appropriate for children who have acquired the
developmental skills needed to distinguish between make-believe and reality.
Themes and elements in this program may include mild fantasy violence (FV) or
comedic violence, or may frighten children under the age of 7.
TV-Y (All Children) Themes and elements in this program are designed for a young
audience, including children from ages 2-6. It is not expected to frighten younger

Canadian English V-Chip Rating System
18+ (Adults) Programming intended for adults 18 and older. It may contain
elements of violence, language, and sexual content which could make it unsuitable
for viewers under 18. Violence Guidelines: May contain violence integral to the
development of the plot, character or theme, intended for adult audiences. Other
Content Guidelines: May contain graphic language and explicit portrayals of
nudity and/or sex.
14+ (Viewers 14 and over) Programming contains themes or content which may
not be suitable for viewers under the age of 14. Parents are strongly cautioned to
exercise discretion in permitting viewing by pre-teens and early teens. Violence
Guidelines: May contain intense scenes of violence. Could deal with mature themes
and societal issues in a realistic fashion. Other Content Guidelines: May contain
scenes of nudity and/or sexual activity. There could be frequent use of profanity.
PG (Parental Guidance) Programming intended for a general audience but which
may not be suitable for younger children (under the age of 8). Parents may
consider some content inappropriate for unsupervised viewing by children aged 813. Violence Guidelines: Depictions of conflict and/or aggression will be limited
and moderate; may include physical, fantasy, or supernatural violence. Other
Content Guidelines: May contain infrequent mild profanity, or mildly suggestive
language. Could also contain brief scenes of nudity.
G (General Audience) Programming considered acceptable for all ages groups.
While not designed specifically for children, it is understood younger viewers may
be part of the audience. Violence Guidelines: Will contain very little violence,
either physical or verbal or emotional. Will be sensitive to themes which could
frighten a younger child, will not depict realistic scenes of violence which
minimize or gloss over the effects of violent acts. Other Content Guidelines: There
may be some inoffensive slang, no profanity and no nudity.
C8+ (Children 8 and Older) Programming generally considered acceptable for
children 8 years and over to watch on their own. Violence Guidelines: Violence will
not be portrayed as the preferred, acceptable, or only way to resolve conflict or
encourage children to imitate dangerous acts which they may see on television.
Any realistic depictions of violence will be infrequent, discreet, of low intensity and
will show the consequences of the acts. Other Content Guidelines: There will be no
profanity, nudity or sexual content.
C (Children) Programming intended for children under age 8. Violence Guidelines:
Careful attention is paid to themes which could threaten children’s sense of
security and well being. There will be no realistic scenes of violence. Depictions of
aggressive behaviour will be infrequent and limited to portrayals that are clearly
imaginary, comedic or unrealistic in nature. Other Content Guidelines: There will be
no offensive language, nudity or sexual content.

Canadian French V-Chip Rating System
18+ (Adults) Programming is for adults only. This program contains sustained
violence or extremely violent scenes.
16+ (Viewers 16 and over) Programming is not suitable for those under age 16.
This program contains frequent scenes of violence or intensely violent scenes.
13+ (Viewers 13 and over) Programming may not be suitable for children under
the age of 13. This program either contains several violent scenes or one or more
scenes that are violent enough to affect them. Viewing in the company of an adult
is therefore strongly recommended for children under the age of 13.
8+ (Viewers 8 and over) Not recommended for young children. This program is
suitable for most audiences, but it contains mild or occasional violence that could
upset young children. Viewing in the company of an adult is therefore
recommended for young children (under the age of 8) who do not distinguish
between reality and imagination.
G (General Audience) This program is suitable for audiences of all ages. It contains
no violence, or any violence that it does contain is either minimal or is presented
in a humorous manner, as a caricature, or in an unrealistic way.

Care and Cleaning
CAUTION: Turn OFF your TV before cleaning.
You can clean the TV 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’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.
While cleaning do not spray liquid directly on the front of the TV, on the screen, or
allow liquid to run down the screen and inside the TV. Also, never place drinks or
vases with water on top of the TV. This could increase the risk of fire or shock
hazard or damage to the TV.
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.
