Setting up your television
1 Please read the safety and care information at the back of this booklet before you
connect this television to the electricity supply. Then follow steps 2 to 5.
2 Make the connections
ANT
The aerial
Connect the aerial lead to the ANTg socket at the back of
the television. You will need a good quality aerial to receive
teletext and nicam sound.
Other equipment
If you have a video recorder you will need to connect the aerial lead
to the video recorder and connect the aerial output lead from the video recorder to the television aerial socket.
Information about connecting aerials and other equipment is given in 'Connecting other equipment' on page 21.
The scart AV sockets
This television has two special interconnecting sockets called 'scart' (AV). You don't have to use these straight
away, but using scart cables gives you the best picture and sound quality and can cure some picture interference
problems. And you will only get stereo sound from other equipment if it is connected with a stereo scart cable. If
you have other equipment with scart sockets please read 'Connecting other equipment' on page 21.
3 Put the batteries in the remote control
Press the edge of the catch at the top of the battery cover towards the cover
and lift off the cover.
Put in the two batteries that came with your television (size AAA or LR3)
Make sure that the (+) and (-) marks on the batteries agree with the (+) and (-)
marks inside the battery compartment.
Replace the cover by engaging the two tabs at the bottom and pressing down
the end with the catch until it clicks into place.
• Throw away old batteries carefully. Do not put them on a fire.
• Keep within 30 degrees and 7 metres of the remote sensor.
• Bright sunlight and some fluorescent light falling on the remote sensor may
stop the remote from working properly.
4 Supply power
Plug your television into the mains supply (220 to 240 volts, 50Hz).
5 Switch on
Switch the set on with the main power button (ON/OFF) on the television, then
B, a number button or one of the 'PR' buttons just

Picture interference from other equipment
If you have used the aerial lead to connect a video recorder, satellite receiver or other piece of equipment,
switch the equipment on one piece at a time and check the picture on all your programmes. The pieces of
equipment that are not switched on must be on stand-by. If any of your programmes have wavy lines on the
picture when the equipment is switched on you will have to change the output frequency of the equipment.
Please read the instruction book for the equipment to find out how to do this. Change the output frequency a
little at a time (or in 8MHz steps) and keep checking all your programmes.
When there are no wavy lines (or other interference) on any of the pictures, re-tune the programme number
that you have chosen for your equipment (see 'Manual Tuning'). Do the same for each piece of equipment ,
but after you've finished with each one, leave it switched on while you check the next piece of equipment.
Continue until you have all the pieces of equipment working together without interfering with each other. If you
cannot get rid of the interference you may have to connect the equipment with a scart cable (see 'Connecting
other equipment') .

Manual tuning
• Use manual tuning to tune in any extra item of equipment connected by the aerial lead.
• Manual tuning by frequency is very useful if you are trying to tune a non-standard frequency,
which might be generated by some types of external equipment. An example would be an
older video recorder or analogue satellite receiver which has a simple output signal modulator
with an adjustment screw on the back: this illustration shows a typical adjuster. See
'Frequency' below.

TV system selection by country
This is a multi-standard television which can be used in most European countries. For either automatic or manual
tuning you need to tell the television which television system to use by choosing the appropriate country, for
example 'GB' stands for 'Great Britain'. Changing the country in the 'system' line has immediate effect on the signal the television is receiving, so if the country does not match the signal then either there will be no sound, no
colour or the picture will be distorted. When you store the broadcast channel to a program number the television
remembers the country for that channel.
Highlight the 'system' line with the PR buttons.
Change the country with the volume
buttons (
).

Tuning by broadcast channel number
• If you know the broadcast channel number used by the station or piece of equipment you want to tune in, you
can enter it by pressing the number buttons while the green highlight is on this line. Highlight the 'channel' line
with the PR buttons.
• Briefly pressing one of the volume buttons (
) changes the channel number one at a time.
• Pressing and holding one of the volume buttons (
) for a few seconds makes the television search until it
finds the next signal, then stop tuning. The television will only find a signal that uses a standard broadcast
channel. Use 'Frequency' for tuning in older equipment.
• We've included a map of transmitters and broadcast channels in Great Britain at the end of this
booklet.
Fine tuning
You can tune by broadcast channel number and find there is a signal on some channel but it is not properly tuned in.
Change to tuning by frequency and fine tune by repeatedly pressing the left or right volume button (
). Keep
pressing the volume button repeatedly on the side which improves the picture or sound until it is best, then go to
Program storage number' below.
Tuning by frequency
• Move the green highlight to the 'freq' line with the PR buttons. If you know the frequency used by the
station or piece of equipment you want to tune in, enter the first three digits by pressing the number buttons
while the green highlight is on this line. Change the digits after the decimal point by pressing the left volume
button (
) to decrease or the right volume button (
) to increase them.
• If you don't know the frequency, press and hold one of the volume buttons () for a few seconds to make the
television search until it finds the next signal, then stop tuning. Give the signal a programme number by

What’s aspect ratio mean?
Aspect ratio is ratio of the width to the height of the picture. This television has a screen with 4:3 aspect ratio.
Wide-screen films normally give a 'letter box' effect on a 4:3 screen, which means there is a black bar above
and below the picture. Selecting '4:3' picture format with a wide-screen film fills the screen but things in the
picture look tall and thin, but selecting 'zoom' makes them look normal again, although a bit of the film disappears off each side of the screen.

News flash and sub-title pages
These special pages are displayed as a small box of text on the television picture. The page numbers are given
by the service provider (for example, page 150 on BBC1 Ceefax).
Fast text pages (the red, green, yellow and blue buttons)
The four coloured page headings at the bottom of the screen are associated with the displayed page. To see
the page corresponding to one of these headings, press the matching coloured button. These buttons are
coloured red, green yellow and blue in a group of four on the remote control. Each time you change the page,
while you are reading the page you just selected your television is loading a new set of associated pages. Once
this has been done any of these pages can be displayed almost instantly by pressing one of the coloured buttons.
Sub-Pages
Some teletext pages contain too much information to fit on the screen at once, so they are split up into subpages and shown in order. The service provider usually displays a label in the top right-hand corner of the
screen to show which sub-page is being shown. For example '3/6' shows that you are looking at the third of six
pages.
How to display a particular sub-page
1 Enter teletext mode by pressing the

Only 4-figure sub-page numbers can be entered in sub-page mode. You can get straight back to 3-figure
teletext page numbers by pressing the button again.
Enter the sub-page number by pressing four of the number buttons on the remote control. As you start pressing
numbers the dashes change to asterisks. The sub-page number must be entered as a complete four-figure
number, such as 0003.
As soon as you enter the fourth digit of the sub-page, the 3-figure page number at the top left of the screen will
come back and the number in the centre of the top row will start changing until the television receives the subpage you have requested. The sub-page will not change until you choose a new page or sub-page.

The scart and AV sockets
The scart sockets at the back of the television are a convenient way of connecting audio and video (AV) signals to
and from the television. As the signals are in a more basic form than the signal at the aerial socket, they are less
likely to be affected by interference and other things that can reduce picture quality. This television has two scart
sockets on special channels called AV1 and AV2. As well as the scart sockets there are video and audio input sockets behind the front control flap provide a different way of connecting to the AV2 channel, but you cannot use scart
socket 2 and these sockets at the same time.

information
Video and RGB
The sharpest and clearest possible picture is reproduced from separate red, green and blue signals (RGB) which
are usually produced by digital equipment. Digital and other equipment also produce the video signal which
contains all the picture information in just one connection (CVBS for composite video, blanking and
synchronisation).
S-video or S-VHS
'S' stands for 'super' and 'VHS' is a type of video recording system. If a video recorder has the S-VHS feature, it
can be connected to the scart socket AV2 to get better quality pictures than ordinary videos can give. You must
use a scart lead made for S-VHS (or S-video). Other equipment, like DVD players, may have a super-video
output.
NTSC and tint control
Imported video discs and cassettes may be recorded with the NTSC television system which is used in America
and Japan. This television can play NTSC video providing it is connected through the scart socket and not the
aerial cable. While reproducing NTSC video the picture menu has a tint control on it which you can adjust to get
the best appearance of natural colours on the picture (see 'Menus for controlling and setting up the television').
Other kinds of video do not need a tint control.
Automatic AV mode or 'video' switching
Some equipment provides an automatic switching signal, so that the video recorder (and so on) 'tells' the
television to reproduce its video and audio signals. You can over-ride the automatic switching by pressing the AV
button b until you get back to normal programme numbers.
Automatic switching signals do not always agree. If this happens you will have to buy a scart lead without the
video-switching signal connection.
Equipment that can be connected
You can usually connect video recorders, camcorders, satellite receivers, video disc players, audio amplifiers and
video games to the television using the scart sockets. We cannot guarantee that all combinations of equipment
will work.
What is the second scart socket for ?
There are other possible combinations besides the ones we have given you. When you have gained some
experience you might want to change the connections yourself and make use of the extra socket. You could feed
sound signals out to a surround sound amplifier or connect a DVD player with S-video output.
19
Connecting other equipment
How to connect a video recorder only
Connect the video recorder scart socket to the AV1 scart socket on your television set. If your video recorder
has two scart sockets, use the one marked TV. The television aerial should go to the video recorder, then to the
television.
How to connect a satellite receiver only
Connect the satellite receiver scart socket to the AV1 scart socket on your television. If your satellite receiver
has more than one scart socket, use the one marked TV. Your television aerial should go to the satellite receiver, then to your television.
How to connect a satellite receiver with one scart socket and a video recorder with one scart socket
If your video recorder has only one scart socket, connect it to the AV1 scart socket on your television. Your television aerial should go to the satellite receiver, then to the video recorder, then to your television. So that you
can record satellite broadcasts you will have to tune one programme number on your video recorder to the
satellite receiver (please see your video and satellite instruction books for details of how to do this). So that you
can watch satellite television while recording normal television, you should also tune one programme on your
television to the satellite receiver (please see 'Manual tuning').
How to connect a satellite receiver with one scart socket and a video recorder with two scart sockets
If your video recorder has two scart sockets, connect one (which may be marked TV) to the AV1 scart socket
on your television and connect the other to your satellite receiver. Your television aerial should go to the satellite receiver, then to the video recorder, then to your television. You may need to read your video recorder
instructions to find out which is the best scart socket to connect to your television and how to record from the
scart socket you have connected to your satellite receiver. So that you can watch satellite television while
recording normal television, you should also tune one programme on your television to the satellite receiver
(please see 'Manual tuning').
How to connect a satellite receiver with three scart sockets and a video recorder with one or two scart
sockets
If your video recorder has two scart sockets, use only one of them. Connect your video recorder to the scart
socket marked VCR on the satellite receiver. You may need to read your video recorder instructions to find out
which is the best scart socket to use and how to record from the scart socket you have connected to your satellite receiver. Connect the scart socket on the satellite receiver marked TV to the AV1 scart socket on your television. Your television aerial should go to the satellite receiver, then to the video recorder, then to your television.
These connections depend on the satellite receiver being put on stand-by to send the audio and video signals
from the video recorder to your television. If you want to watch satellite while recording normal television, select
a channel on the satellite receiver and press the b button on your television remote control.
If you decide to watch normal television while recording satellite, you may find you automatically get satellite
pictures and sound from your television. In this case, select the programme number you want to watch using
your television remote control.

Normal phenomena
The following things are normal, so don't worry about them.
• When you touch the screen surface there may be some faint crackling noises and the hairs on your skin may stand
on end. This is caused by a little static electricity and is quite harmless.
• A bright object with a lot of fine detail may show coloured bands. This is caused by the limitations in the broadcast
system, not a fault in the television.
23
Safety Information
This television is manufactured for domestic or similar use in
temperate climates. Other use might be dangerous.
Mains supply
This television is designed to operate from a 220 - 240Volt, 50Hz AC mains supply only. If you plug it in to
other power source's it may damage it. Always check that the rating label on the back cover of the television
says 220 to 240V AC (~), 50Hz before you plug it in.
Mains plug
For the UK we have fitted this television with a standard UK moulded mains plug. If the standard plug is not suitable for your mains socket, then you can buy a special adapter locally.
If the moulded plug is cut off, remove the fuse from the plug and get rid of it safely. If you put it into a mains
socket, it would be dangerous.
Never use the moulded plug without the fuse cover fitted. If the cover is lost, you must replace the plug.
Mains plug wiring for standard UK plug
The colours of the wires in the mains lead of this television may not match the coloured markings of the mains
plug terminals. You can identify the correct terminals as follows.
The wire that is coloured brown is connected to the terminal
that is marked with the letter L or coloured red.
The wire that is coloured blue is connected to the terminal
that is marked with the letter N or coloured black.
You do not connect anything to the earth terminal which is
marked E or l or coloured green or green and yellow.
Cord clamp
You must make sure the lead is firmly secured under the cord clamp.
Mains fuse
In the UK if you use a 13 amp (BS 1363 type) plug then, you must have a 5 amp (BS1362 type) fuse fitted. If
you use any other type of plug or connection, you must fit a 5 amp fuse in the mains plug or adapter, or at the
household main fuse box feeding the outlet to which this television is connected.
Symbols
This symbol means this unit is double insulated and an earth connection is not required.
This symbol means this unit complies with European safety and electrical interference directives

Using and caring for your television
We have designed and made this television to meet European safety standards. But like any television you
must take care to get the best results. Here are a few tips to help you do this.
Use
This product is designed for domestic use only and is therefore not suitable for commercial use. Anything other
than household or similar general use according to these instructions may invalidate the guarantee and might
be dangerous.
Position
For best results, choose a position where light does not fall directly on the screen and at some distance from
radiators or other sources of heat. Unless they are magnetically screened, do not place objects which have
magnets in them next to the television or it could affect the quality of the colour.
Moving the television, coloured patches and magnetism
If you move the television the earth's magnetic field can cause coloured patches on the picture. The same can
happen if you put a magnet close to the television or you don't use the main power switch. To work the automatic demagnetisation system and remove the coloured patches, the television must be cool and you must
switch it on with the main power switch. If the television is warm, leave it to cool for at least 15 minutes before
you switch it on.
Ventilation
Place the television on a hard flat surface where curtains and soft furnishings cannot obstruct the air flow
through the ventilation slots. If it is in a cabinet, allow at least a 10 centimetre gap all around.
Water and moisture
Do not use the television near water, for example near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, swimming pool, in a wet basement or in any damp environment. Do not place liquids, including flower vases on top
of the television.
Stands and supports
Use only stands recommended for the television, making sure that the fixings are properly tightened.
Never use a make-shift stand or legs fixed with wood screws. If you do use a stand, put the television on a
secure level surface
Cleaning
Unplug the television and use only a lightly dampened soft cloth to clean it. Do not use chemical solvents or
strong detergents as these may damage the cabinet finish.
Good advice
Read these instructions carefully before you try to use the television.
Protect the mains lead. You must make sure the mains lead cannot be walked on, crushed, chafed, cut, or so
on.
Don't continue to use your television if you have spilt liquids in it, if it is damaged in any way or if it does not
work normally. Immediately unplug the television and get expert advice.
Changing the mains plug. If you have to change the plug or remove it, or if the fuse in the mains plug needs
changing, read instructions about wiring and replacing the mains plug or fuse we have given in this booklet.
Avoid harsh conditions such as wet or damp places, high humidity, places with extremely high or low temperatures and places which have strong sunlight or are dusty.
Never let anyone, especially children, push objects into holes and ventilation slots.
Make sure that all electrical connections are properly made according to the connection and wiring instructions
we have given.
Don't leave the television switched on when you leave the it unattended for a long time, unless the timer is
being used.
Electrical safety warnings
To prevent electric shock, do not take the back cover off this television.
If anything goes wrong, don't try and fix it yourself, get a qualified service agent to look at it.
Protect this television from rain or moisture.
Unplug this television from the mains supply when you are not using it for a long period of time.
