some VHS home video tapes at the discretion of the
program provider.
Digital Closed Caption service is a new caption service
available only on digital TV programs (also at the
discretion of the service provide0. It is a more flexible
system than the original Closed Caption system,
because it allows for a variety of caption sizes and font
styles. When the Digital Closed Caption service is in
use, it will be indicated by the appearance of a 3-letter
abbreviation that also indicates the language of the
Digital Closed Captions: ENG (English), SPA (Spanish),
FRA (French) or other language codes.
Not all programs and VHS videotapes offer closed
captions. Please look for the "[_]" symbol to ensure
that captions will be shown.
In the Closed Caption system, there can be more than
one caption service provided. Each is identified by its

V-CHIP is an electronic filtering device built into your TV. This tool gives parents a great degree of control over
broadcasts accessed by their children, it allows parents to select programs judged suitable for child viewing while
blocking ones judged not suitable, it does so automatically once you activate the V-CHIP feature in your TV.
"V-Chip" and "Status" will not be selectable from the menu if you do not first configure your secret
number. (See page 41 for Secret number setting for parental control.)
• The U.S, has two rating systems for viewing content: TV Parental Guidelines and movie ratings.
• The TV Parental Guidelines work in conjunction with the V-CHIP to help parents screen out inappropriate
television shows from their children.
• Movie ratings are used for original movies rated by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) as
watched on cable TV and not edited for television. The V-CHIP can also be set to block MPAA-rated movies.

Canadian
Rating Systems
• The TV rating systems in Canada are based on the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications
Commission (CRTC) policy on violence in television programming.
• While violence is the most important content element to be rated, the structure developed takes into
consideration other program content like language, nudity, sexuality and mature themes.
• When setting the V-CHIP on the Canadian system you can choose either the Canadian English ratings or the
Canadian French ratings.

,' When the unit is used in a low temperature space (e.g. room, office), the picture may leave trails or appear slightly delayed.
This is not a malfunction, and the unit will recover when the temperature returns to normal.
Do not leave the unit in a hot or cold location. Also, do not leave the unit in a location exposed to direct sunlight or near a
heater, as this may cause the cabinet to deform and the Liquid Crystal panel to malfunction.
