Connections & Setup
Things to Consider Before You Connect
Protect Against Power Surges
•
Connect all components before you plug any of their power cords into the wall outlet.
•
Turn off the TV/DVD and/or component before you connect or disconnect any cables.
•
Make sure all antennas and cables are properly grounded. Refer to the Important Safeguards sheet packed
with your TV/DVD.
Protect Components from Overheating
•
Don’t block ventilation holes on any of the components. Arrange the components so that air can circulate
freely.
•
Don’t stack components.
•
When you place components in a stand, make sure you allow adequate ventilation.
•
If you connect an audio receiver or amplifier, place it on the top shelf so the heated air from it won’t flow
around other components.
Position Cables Properly to Avoid Audio Interference
•
Insert each cable firmly into the designated jack.
•
If you place components above the TV/DVD, route all cables down the side of the back of the TV/DVD
instead of straight down the middle of the back of the TV/DVD.
•
If your antenna uses 300-ohm twin lead cables, do not coil the cables. Also, keep the twin lead cables
away from audio/video cables.
Important Stand and Base Safety Information
Choose the location for your TV/DVD carefully. Place the TV/DVD on a stand or base that is of adequate size
and strength to prevent the TV/DVD from being accidentally tipped over, pushed off, or pulled off. This
could cause personal injury and/or damage the TV/DVD. Refer to the Important Safeguards sheet packed with
your TV/DVD.
Use Indirect Light
Don’t place the TV/DVD where sunlight or room lighting will be directed toward the screen. Use soft or
indirect lighting.
Connection Pictures
Audio/video cables are usually bundled together. For better visibility, the connection pictures in this book
show each cable separately (audio left, audio right, and video).
Types of Discs Your TV/DVD will Play
•
DVD discs - DVD discs contain high quality picture and sound content.
•
Audio discs - Audio CDs contain musical or sound content only.

Dolby Digital® and DTS®
Both Dolby Digital and DTS are audio formats used to record 5.1-channel audio signals onto the
digital track of film (while the film is being made). Both of these formats provide up to six separate
channels: left, right, center, left rear, right rear, and common subwoofer.
The disc will play 5.1-channel sound only if you’ve connected a DTS or Dolby Digital receiver or
decoder and if the original movie the disc was recorded from was encoded in the Dolby Digital or
DTS format.
Please Read This Before Using the DIGITAL AUDIO COAXIAL Jack!
This unit’s DIGITAL AUDIO COAXIAL jack is designed for a connection to a Dolby Digital or DTS receiver or
decoder.
Older digital equipment may not be compatible with the Dolby Digital bitstream. Such a connection can
create a high level of noise that may be harmful to your ears, and could damage headphones or speakers.

Playing DVDs/Audio CDs
Regional Coding
Both the TV/DVD unit and the discs are coded by region. These regional codes must match in
order for the disc to play. If the codes don’t match, the disc won’t play. This unit’s code is region 1.
Other region codes cannot be played in this TV/DVD unit.
Using Different Menus
Each disc is programmed with different features. There are two separate menu paths that you can
use to access features:
•
The Disc contents menu – The disc contents menu is part of each disc and is separate from
the DVD’s menu system. The contents of each disc menu vary according to how the disc was
authored and what features are included. The disc menu is turned on and off with the DISC
MENU button on the remote.
•
The DVD’s menu system – The DVD’s menu system is accessed only when a DVD is in the
stop mode. Press SETUP•MENU to bring up the DVD’s menu.
Remember that a feature will only work if the disc was programmed with that feature. For example,
if you choose subtitles, the subtitles only appear if the disc was created with subtitles.
Loading and Playing Discs
Your TV/DVD unit plays DVD discs or Audio discs. Before you load a disc, make sure that it is
compatible with the player. The following discs CANNOT be used with this player:
•
Laserdiscs
•
CD-I, CD-ROM (computer-only discs), CD-RW, DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, DVD-Audio, CD-R, CDV,
CD-G, Video CD or Photo CD (do not play to prevent accidental erasure of prerecorded
material)
•
Discs recorded using other broadcast standards (i.e. PAL or SECAM)

playback automatically; others you may have to press PLAY.
3.
Press STOP to end playback.
Note: Your TV/DVD is capable of remembering the stopping point if the disc
was programmed with this feature. Press STOP (
appears). To resume
playback, press PLAY (the disc starts playing where you left off unless the
disc is removed, the unit is unplugged, or you pressed the STOP button
twice). When you press STOP a second time, appears on the screen and
the unit clears the stopped point.
Note: If a non-compatible disc is loaded, “Incorrect Disc,” “Region Code
Errror,” or Parental Error,” appears on the screen.
Using a Disc Menu
A disc is capable of having a menu that is separate from the DVD’s menu system and TV’s menu
system. The disc menu might only contain a list of the titles and chapters, or it may allow you to
change features such as language and playback settings.
Although the content and operation of disc menus vary from disc to disc, the following example
will give you an idea of what to expect.
1.
While the disc is playing, press the DISC
MENU button on the remote (the disc menu
appears).
This is an example of a disc menu. The
menus on discs vary because the disc
menu is created by the disc’s author.
Tip
Many discs skip the disc
menu and start playing
automatically. To access the
disc menu when you’re
playing a disc, press DISC
MENU on the remote.

How V-Chip Works
When turned “on,” the V-Chip software reads a code that most broadcasters send with
programs. That code tells the software the program’s age-based rating (TV-MA, TV-14, etc.) and
content themes [(Violence (V), Adult Language (L), etc.)].
Broadcasters are not required to provide content themes, so programs received with no content
themes will only be blocked if you block their age-based rating. You can also block out
programs that have been given a rating of “Not Rated,” and programs that are considered
“unrated” because no code has been sent by the broadcaster. The TV age-based ratings, movie
ratings and content themes you can block are listed in the following tables.
Age-Based
Rating
TV Ratings
Mature Audience Only. Specifically designed to be viewed by adults and may be unsuitable for children
under 17. It contains one or more of the following content themes: crude indecent language (L), explicit
sexual activity (S), or graphic violence (V).
TV-MA
Parents Strongly Cautioned. Contains some material that many parents would find unsuitable for children
under 14. Parents are strongly urged to exercise greater care in monitoring this program and are cautioned
against letting children under the age of 14 watch unattended. This program contains one or more of the
following content themes: intensely suggestive dialogue (D), strong coarse language (L), intense sexual
situations (S), or intense violence (V).
TV-14
Parental Guidance Suggested. Contains material that parents may find unsuitable for younger children. Many
parents may want to watch it with their younger children. The program contains one or more of the following
content themes: some suggestive dialogue (D), infrequent coarse language (L), some sexual situations (S), or
moderate violence (V).
TV-PG
TV-G
General Audience. Most parents would find this program suitable for all ages. It contains
little or no sexual dialogue (D) or situations (S), no strong language (L), and little
or no violence (V).
TV-Y7
Directed to Children 7 years and older. Designed for children ages 7 and above. It may be more
appropriate for children who have acquired the developmental skills needed to distinguish between makebelieve and reality. Themes and elements in this program may include mild fantasy violence (FV) or comedic
violence, or may frighten children under the age of 7.
TV-Y
All Children. Themes and elements in this program are designed for a young audience, including children
from ages 2-6. It is not expected to frighten younger children.

Using the TV’s Menu System and Features
Using the Audio Features
Your TV/DVD is equipped with a feature known as multi-channel TV sound. MTS broadcasts
greatly enhance TV viewing by bringing you programs with high fidelity stereo sound. MTS also
provides an extra channel called the Separate Audio Program (SAP) which broadcasters can use
to transmit a second language for bilingual transmission or for other purposes.
Listening to the Audio
You can select the desired sound by pressing the AUDIO button on the remote control.
Repeatedly pressing the AUDIO button scrolls through the available options:
SEL. MONO Plays the sound in mono only; no display appears on the
screen. Use this setting when receiving broadcasts with weak stereo signals.
SEL.STEREO Splits the incoming stereo audio signal into left and right
channels. Most TV programs and recorded materials have stereo audio. The
word STEREO appears on the screen when you tune to a program that is
broadcast in stereo.
SEL. STEREO
SEL.SAP (Second Audio Program) Plays the program’s audio in a
second language, if one is available. The word SAP appears on the screen
when you tune to a program that is broadcast with SAP information. SAP is
also used to broadcast a program’s audio with descriptions of the video for
the visually impaired.
SEL. MONO+SAP Plays the program’s audio in a second language, if one is
available in mono--this option is seldom available.
Using Closed Captioning
Many programs are encoded with closed-captioning information, which lets you display the
audio portion of a program as text on the screen. Closed-captioning is not available on all
channels at all times. Only specific programs encoded with closed-captioning information are
applicable. When a program is closed-captioned, CAPTION CH1 is displayed when you bring up
the displays with the SUBTITLE button.
The TV/DVD offers four closed-captioned modes, including two text modes. To
select the closed-caption modes, press the SUBTITLE on the remote to switch
among CAPTION CH1, CAPTION CH2, TEXT CH1, TEXT CH2. The selected
mode remains in effect even if the channel is changed.
Notes: Generally the caption modes are transmitted in languages. CAPTION CH1 is
displayed in English and CAPTION CH2 displays the other languages.
The text modes cover nearly half of the picture on the screen to display the closedcaptioned text. Most broadcasters use the Channel 1 to display a few lines of
captions at a time.
Tip
For television programs broadcasting with Closed
Captions, look in your TV guide for the Closed
Captions symbol (CC).

mode before you can bring up the DVD’s Menu System. Press SETUP•MENU on the remote to
bring up the menu system. There are four features in the DVD’s menu: Language, Picture, Parental

Parental Menu
The Parental menu lets you control the types of DVDs that your family watches and how your
DVD will react to discs that contain movies that are rated (in the U.S.A., the Motion Pictures
Association of America rates movies as G, PG, PG-13, etc.). In order for the Parental feature to
work, the disc must be encoded with rating information.
You decide which ratings require a password and which ones don’t. The system ranks the ratings 1
through 8 in order to accommodate different countries’ ratings systems. Rating 1 is considered a
movie title with the most offensive material and rating 8 the least offensive.

Care and Cleaning
CAUTION: Turn OFF your TV/DVD before cleaning.
You can clean the TV/DVD as required, using a soft lint-free cloth. Be sure to occasionally dust the ventilation slots in the
cabinet to help assure adequate ventilation.
The TV/DVD’s screen may be cleaned with a soft, lint-free cloth as well. Take care not to scratch or mar the screen. If
necessary, you may use a cloth dampened with warm water. Never use strong cleaning agents, such as ammonia-based
cleaners, or abrasive powder. These types of cleaners will damage the TV/DVD.
While cleaning do not spray liquid directly on the screen, or allow liquid to run down the screen and inside the TV/DVD.
Also, avoid placing drinks or vases with water on top of the TV/DVD. This could increase the risk of fire or shock hazard or
damage to the TV/DVD.
Caution: Using video games or any external accessory with fixed images for extended periods of time can cause
them to be permanently imprinted on the picture tube (or projection TV picture tubes). ALSO, some network/
program logos, phone numbers, etc. may cause similar damage. This damage is not covered by your warranty.
Handling Cautions
•
Before connecting other components to this TV/DVD, be sure to turn all components off.
•
Don’t move the TV/DVD while a disc is being played. The disc may get scratched or broken, and the TV/DVD’s internal
parts may be damaged.
•
Don’t put any container filled with liquid or any small metal objects on the TV/DVD.
•
Be careful not to put your hand into the disc tray.
•
Don’t place anything other than the disc in the disc tray.
•
Exterior influences such as lightning and static electricity can affect normal operation of this player. If this occurs, turn
the TV/DVD off and on again with the ON•OFF button, or disconnect and then reconnect the AC power cord to the AC
power outlet. The TV/DVD will operate normally.
•
Be sure to remove the disc and turn off the TV/DVD after use.
Formation of Condensation
•
Due to sharp changes in temperature and humidity, condensation may form if warm air comes in contact with any cold
parts inside the TV/DVD.
•
When condensation forms inside the TV/DVD, it may not operate correctly. If this occurs, leave the TV/DVD at room
temperature until the inside of the disc tray becomes dry and operational.
•
If condensation forms on a disc, wipe the disc with a soft, dry cloth by moving the cloth from the center hole toward
the outer edge.
Handling Discs
•

Cleaning Discs
•
Dirty discs can cause reduced video and audio performance. Always keep discs clean by wiping them gently with a soft
cloth from the inner edge toward the outer perimeter.
•
If a disc becomes very dirty, wet a soft cloth in water, wring it out well. Wipe the dirt away gently, and remove any
water drops with a dry cloth.
•
Do not use record-cleaning sprays or anti-static agents on discs. Also, never clean the discs with benzene, thinner, or
other volatile solvents which may cause damage to the disc surface.

Other Information
Troubleshooting
Subtitle and/or audio language is not changed when you play back a DVD
•
If the subtitle and/or audio language does not exist on the disc, the initial settings will not be seen/heard. The disc’s priority language
is selected instead. Set the subtitle and/or audio language manually through the DVD’s main menu.
•
Since this unit plays a DVD according to the disc contents designed by the software producers, subtitle and/or audio language may
not be changed.
The menu is displayed in a foreign language
•
The Language menu preference is set to that language. From the DVD’s main menu, select the Language menu. Highlight the
language you prefer and press ENTER.
No forward, reverse scan, slow-motion play, repeat play, program play, pause during playback etc.
•
Some discs have sections that prohibit these functions.
•
If you’re trying to skip through the warning information and credits at the beginning of a movie, you won’t be able to. This part of
the movie is often programmed to prohibit skipping through it.
Camera angle cannot be changed
•
Some discs don’t have the multi-camera angle system because the software producers chose not to design into the DVD.
•
Some discs only have the angle system in certain parts of the movie (hand icon) appears on the screen.
(Hand icon) appears on screen
•
The feature or action cannot be completed because:
1.
The disc’s software restricts it.
2.

3.
The feature is not available at the moment.
4.
You’ve requested a title or chapter number that is out of range.
Picture is too tall and thin
•
Change the aspect ratio using the TvScreen option in the Picture menu (see chapter 4).
Picture is too short and wide
•
Change the aspect ratio using the TvScreen setting in the Picture menu (see chapter 4).

•
You can’t record DVD discs onto videocassettes because the discs are encoded with anti-copy protection.

time. Wait 15 seconds and try again.
