Read instructions--All
operating instructions must be read and understood before the product is
operated.
Keep this manual in a safe place---These safety and operating instructions must be kept in a
safe place for future reference.
Observe warnings--All warnings on the product and in the instructions must be observed
closely.
Follow instructions--All
operating instructions must be followed.
Attachments--Do
not use attachments not recommended by the manufacturer. Use of inadequate attachments can result in accidents.
Power source--This
product must operate on a power source specified on the specification
label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply used in your home, consult your dealer or
local power company. For units designed to operate on batteries or another power source, refer
to the operating instructions.
Power cord protection--The
power cords must be routed properly to prevent people from
stepping on them or objects from resting on them. Check the cords at the plugs and product.
If the AC adapter is misplaced or needs to be replaced, obtain the same type of adapter from a
SHARP service center or your dealer.
Overloading--Do
not overload AC outlets or extension cords.
Overloading can cause fire or electric shock.
Entering of objects and liquids--Never
insert an object into the product through vents or openings. High voltage flows in the product, and inserting an object can cause electric shock and/or
short internal parts. For the same reason, do not spill water or liquid on the product.
Servicing--Do
not attempt to service the product yourself. Removing covers can expose you to
high voltage and other dangerous conditions. Request a qualified service person to perform
servicing.
Repair--If any of the following conditions occurs, unplug the power cord from the AC outlet, and
request a qualified service person to perform repairs.
a.When the power cord or plug is damaged.
b.When a liquid was spilled on the product or when objects have fallen into the product.
c. When the product has been exposed to rain or water.
d.When the product does not operate properly as described in the operating instructions.
Do not touch the controls other than those described in the operating instructions. Improper
adjustment of controls not described in the instructions can cause damage, which often
requires extensive adjustment work by a qualified technician.
e.When the product has been dropped or damaged.
f. When the product displays an abnormal condition. Any noticeable abnormality in the product
indicates that the product needs servicing.
Replacement parts--In case the product needs replacement parts, make sure that the service
person uses replacement parts specified by the manufacturer, or those with the same characteristics and performance as the original parts. Use of unauthorized parts can result in fire, electric
shock and/or other danger.
Safety checks--Upon
completion of service or repair work, request the service technician to
perform safety checks to ensure that the product is in proper operating condition.
Wall or ceiling mounting--When
mounting the product on a wall or ceiling, be sure to install the
product according to the method recommended by the manufacturer.
Polarization--This
AC adapter may be equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a
plug having one blade wider than the other). 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 should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.

IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (Continued)
•
If an outside antenna is connected to the television equipment, 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 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.

Before using the LCD TV set for the first time, install two ("AAA" size, UM/SUM-4) batteries (supplied).
When the batteries become depleted and the remote control fails to operate, replace the batteries with
new ("AAA" size, UM/SUM-4) batteries.

Cautions regarding batteries
Improper use of batteries can result in chemical leakage and/or explosion. Be sure to follow the instructions below.
• Place batteries with their terminals corresponding to the (+) and (-) indications.
• Different types of batteries have different characteristics. Do not mix batteries of different types.
• Do not mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new
battery and/or cause the old battery to leak chemicals.
• Remove batteries when they become weak.
Chemicals that leak from batteries can cause a rash. If chemical leakage is found, wipe with a
cloth.
• The batteries supplied with the product may have a shorter life expectancy due to storage conditions.
• If the remote control will not be used for an extended period of time, remove the batteries from the
remote control.
m
PREPARATION
(Continued)
Household power outlet
• Use a commercially available AC plug adapter, if necessary, depending on the design of the wall outlet.
• Always turn the MAIN POWER switch of the LCD TV set to off when connecting the AC adapter.
• Always unplug the AC adapter from the product and power outlet when not using for a long periodof time.
• A 75-ohm coaxial cable connector is built into the set for easy hookup. When connecting the 75ohm coaxial cable to the set, screw the 75-ohm cable to the ANT. terminal.
• Some cable TV companies offer "premium pay channels". Since the signals of these premium pay
channels are scrambled, a cable TV converteddescrambler
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 to 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 converteddescrambler
provided by your cable TV company is explained below.
Please note: An RF switch provided with two inputs (A and B) is required (not supplied).
"A" position on the RF switch (not supplied)
"B" position on the RF switch (not supplied)
: You can view all unscrambled channels by using the
TV's channel keys.
: You can view the scrambled channels via the converted
descrambler by using the converter's channel keys.

PREPARATION
(Continued)
• 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.
F-type connector
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).
75-ohm coaxial cable (round)
2. A 30g-ohm system is a flat "twin-lead" cable that can be
attached to a 75-ohm terminal through a 300-75-ohm
adapter (not supplied).

• SETTING CLOSED CAPTION
• This TV set is equipped with an internal Closed Caption decoder. "Closed Caption" is
a system which allows conversations, narration, and sound effects in TV programs
and home videos to be viewed as captions on the TV screen (see the illustration).
• Not all programs and videos will offer closed captioning. Please look for the "_'
symbol to ensure that captions will be shown.
• The Closed Caption broadcasts can be viewed in two modes: CAPTION and TEXT.
For each mode, two channels are available: OH1 and OH2.
The CAPTION mode shows subscripts of dialogs and commentaries of TV dramas
and news programs while allowing a clear view of the picture.
The TEXT mode displays various information over the picture (such as TV program
schedules and weather forecasts, etc.) that is independent of the TV programs.
