There are four jacks on the left front side behind the screen on
your projection TV that make connecting Audio/Video devices like
video games and camcorders very simple.
The jacks are like those found on the back jack connection panel.
This means that most equipment that connects to those types of
jacks on the rear jackpack, may be connected to the front connection panel.
To use the front jacks as the signal source, select them using
Main Input menu as described on page 25. They will be named
“Front Video” in the Main Input menu.
If you select either Front Video or
Front S-Video, the Front audio inputs
are automatically selected as well.

If you receive your RF signal
through an antenna that is several
years old and connects with two
small prongs, you will need to purchase a 300 to 75 ohm adapter. It
should be available from your local
electronics dealer.
We recommend using a 75 ohm
cable for your antenna connections
in order to prevent
interference.
For best signal reception, it is recommended to have your Antenna professionally adjusted.

Home Theater: Speaker Layout
This is a typical speaker layout.
Any number of other speaker setups
are possible, and some changes may
be needed to maximize your sound.
However, a Dolby Digital Receiver is
required to hear 5.1 channel audio.
Left and right speakers on each
side of the TV enhance separation.
The TV's sound optional hookup
“center mode in,” makes the dialog
sound as though it’s coming directly
from the TV. The rear surround
sound speakers provide
the majority of other sounds, like
those from special effects in movies.
Your sub-woofer generates ultra-low
frequency sound, for rumbling
low-end audio.

Sound is affected by

Maintenance
Careful and regular cleaning can extend the amount of time you will have your new TV. Be sure to turn the
power off and pull out the power cord before you begin any cleaning.
SCREEN CLEANING
1. Here’s a great way to keep the dust off your screen for a while. Wet a soft cloth in a mixture of
lukewarm water and a little fabric softener or dish washing detergent. Wring the cloth until it’s
almost dry, and then use it to wipe the screen.
2. Make sure the excess water is off the screen, and then let it air-dry before you turn on your TV.
CABINET CLEANING
1. Use a soft cloth with a mild soap solution to wipe the cabinet.
2. Rinse the cloth and wipe the cabinet again.
3. Let the cabinet air-dry before turning the TV on.
WOOD CABINETS
Use a quality wood cleaner and polish. This will protect the TV from dirt and dust, as well as keep
the cabinet looking new.
EXTENDED ABSENCE
If you intend to leave your TV dormant for a long time (such as a vacation), it’s a good idea to
unplug the power cord to protect against possible damage from lightning or power surges. If you use
an off-air antenna, you may also want to disconnect it from the back of your TV before leaving.
PAGE 52
Maintenance (Contd.)
PICTURE INTERFERENCE
Even though you may be getting cable service, the signal may be weak, which means the quality
of your picture may suffer due to other factors. If there are problems with the image on your TV,
consult the Troubleshooting guide on the following pages. You may also want to contact your cable
service provider to determine if the problem is from the cable service.
VIDEO GAMES AND OTHER FIXED-PATTERN DISPLAYS
If you use your TV to play video games or for other uses that have single,
fixed images, such as a photo-CD player, you should avoid setting the Brightness level too high.
If static images, like network identification patterns, are left on the screen for too long, they can
leave a permanent impression on the TV screen. You can reduce the chance of this happening by
limiting the amount of time you use the fixed-image display, and by reducing the contrast and
brightness levels.
If you unplug your TV from a wall power outlet, you may have to reset the clock using the Time menu
described earlier.

Troubleshooting
Some quick and easy tips to fixing problems yourself.
SYMPTOMS
SYMPTOMS POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS
Snowy picture and unclear sound.
• Check your antenna connection or location.
• Check your cable input.
• Check to see if the TV/VCR button on your VCR has the TV selected.
Multiple images or ‘ghost shadows.’
• Check your antenna direction and/or location.
• Check your cable input.
• Make sure the cable from your antenna to your TV is
properly connected.
Interference: Sharp lines across
the screen and unclear sound.
The following may cause image problems or distortion:
Electrical appliances, powerful lights, cars, trucks; computers or
portable phones; medical equipment
• If possible increase the distance between your TV and the offending appliance.
Or shut one of them off.
Normal picture but no sound.
•
•
•
•
•
No picture and unclear sound.
• Are you in TV or cable tuning mode, and should be in the other?
• Make sure output channels on all A/V equipment are on the same channel (3 or 4).
• Check that all connections are tight.
No picture and no sound.
• Is the AC power cord plugged in?
• Check that your AC power outlet works. (Test it by plugging in something
else or try another outlet.)
• Make sure your brightness and audio controls are set properly.
• Try another channel. The problem may be with the broadcast.
No color, but the sound is O.K.
• Check the color settings in the Video menu.
• Try another channel. The problem may be with the broadcast.
Picture has a big black box
on it, but the sound is O.K.
• The Caption option may be in Text mode. Select Caption 1, or OFF
in the Captions/Text menu.
Picture has two horizontal
black bars, one on top and
one on bottom.
• Your program is in letterbox. This means that the shape of your TV is a
square, but the program is a rectangle. Think of the bars as empty space the
program doesn’t fill; not picture that’s blocked out. Because this format is a
direct representation of film as you see it in the movies, you are actually seeing
MORE of the program when you see those bars.
Missing Secret code
• If you forget the secret code, press the remote control Button ‘7’, ‘7’, ‘7’ and ‘7’
when the display asks you to enter the secret code.
PAGE 54
Check sound level.
Make sure the TV sound is not muted.
Try another channel. The problem may be the broadcast, not your TV.
Are the Audio cables properly installed?
Are the wires for external speakers (if you have external speakers)
properly installed?
• Make sure your speakers are turned on inthe Audio menu.
• If your audio mode is set to SAP, that channel may not have an SAP program.
Troubleshooting (Contd.)
Remote control doesn’t work.
• Make sure the batteries are fresh and installed properly.
Menu options can’t be
changed or selected.
• Try unplugging your TV for a few minutes,
then plug it back in.
No picture or sound
when any non-cable source
is selected.
• Check to see if the source equipment has been turned on.
• Make sure that the connections are secure on the back of your TV and on the
source equipment.
Weak or no Stereo Sound
when using a stereo VCR.
• Check to see if all the connections are secure.
• Look in the Audio mode menu to see if all the settings are correct.
• You are using channel 3 or 4 to view your VCR. No stereo sound is present
under that decision.
The PIP inset is black or
lacks contrast.
•
•
•
•
The PIP inset is “snow” when
the source is Antenna.
• Look to see if the TV/VCR button on your VCR has the TV selected or change
the PIP to another source.
Time is incorrect.
• Reset clock manually.
Check to be sure that the PIP source is turned on.
You might want to adjust the PIP picture settings under the PIP menu.
Check that all the wires are connected properly.
Check to see if your input source for PIP is set correctly.
