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 LCM0802TV 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.

controlled by a three position slide switch. Sliding the
switch to the on position will turn the lights on. The off
position will prevent the lights from turning on at all
times and the auto position will allow the lights to turn

leave the vehicle unattended with the dome light
switch in the on position, as this could result in a
discharged battery.
Dome Light Switch
The LCM0802TV incorporates an infrared sensor,
which relays the signals from the remote control to
allow the LCM0802TV and VCP to be controlled
simply by pointing it’s remote control at the remote
sensor. This provides control of auxialiary
equipment such as an Flexvision Video Cassette
Player. The infrared sensor can relay signals from
any manufacturer’s remote control to it’s respective
component connected to the Video 1 and 2 inputs,
such as a DVD player. In this case you must use
the remote control supplied with the DVD player.

OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES
Auxiliary A/V Stereo Inputs Jack
Wireless Headphones
The LCM0802TV 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 LCM0802TV on and press the source button
on the LCM0802TV or the TV/Video button on the
remote control until “Video 2” is displayed on the
screen. The unit will now play the audio and video
signals from the accessory connected. The remote
control will not operate the accessory components.
The LCM0802TV includes a RF transmitter (P/N
WUX) 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.
