US PATENT # D413, 856
Important Notice
Television Reception
It is unlawful in most jurisdictions for a person to drive a
motor vehicle which is equipped with a television viewer
or screen that is located in the motor vehicle at any point
forward of the back of the driver’s seat, or that is visible,
directly or indirectly, to the driver while operating the
vehicle. In the interest of safety, the LCM1042TV should
never be installed where it will be visible, directly or
indirectly, by the operator of the motor vehicle.
This entertainment system is designed primarily for
viewing pre-recorded movies or playing video games.
Television reception in a moving vehicle will be
limited and in some areas will not be possible due to
weak and variable signal strength. Television viewing
in a stationary vehicle will result in an improvement,
but may still be marginal due to strength. The quality
of the picture will not be consistent with home TV
reception.
Reception may be affected by the
weather and distance from the TV station. A weak
signal may cause the picture to roll, be snowy, or
cause some color loss.
Please note that the state of Rhode Island forbids the
installation of such a device in a motor vehicle.

OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES
Auxiliary A/V Stereo Inputs Jack
Wireless Headphones
The LCM1042TV includes a RF transmitter (P/N WUX
or WUX3) for use with optional Flexvision wireless
headphones. Tuning the headphone switch on, and
wearing them activates the internal micro switch,
(which includes a tuning knob to tune into the preset
frequency on the RF transmitter), which will activate
the internal RF receiver and the volume can be
adjusted separately with the controls on the headset.

wireless headphones.
The LCM1042TV may be equipped with an auxiliary
A/V stereo input connector (optional).
These inputs are provided to facilitate the temporary
connection of optional audio/video equipment, such as
a camcorder or video game system. To play a source
with these inputs, an RCA patch cord is required to
connect the audio/video signals to their respective
jacks. Mono audio sources will require the use of an
RCA Y-cable (P/N 0892165) to connect to both right
and left inputs. If patch cords are installed into the
AUX inputs, the AUX INPUT 2 will be temporarily
bypassed. Once the connections have been made,
turn the LCM1042TV on and press the source button
on the LCM1042TV or the TV/Video button on the
remote control until “Video 2” is displayed on the
