VENTILATION - Slots and openings in the cabinet and the back or bottom are provided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the TV and to protect it from overheating, these openings must not be blocked or covered. The openings should never be blocked by placing the TV on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This TV should never be placed near or over a radiator or heat register. This TV should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer’s instructions have been adhered to. 10. POWER SOURCES - This TV should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult your appliance dealer or local power company. For TVs intended to operate from battery power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions. 11. GROUNDING OR POLARIZATION - This TV is equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug(a plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug. 12. POWER-CORD PROTECTION - Power-supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, con- venience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the appliance. 13. OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING - If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the TV, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70, provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode. (Fig. A) 14. LIGHTNING - For added protection for this TV receiver during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the TV due to lightning and power-line surges. 15. POWER LINES - An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light of power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal. 16. OVERLOADING - Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock. 17. OBJECT AND LIQUID ENTRY - Never push objects of any kind into this TV through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the TV. 18. SERVICING - Do not attempt to service this TV yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. 19. DAMAGE REQUIRING SERVICE - Unplug this TV from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: a. When the power supply cord or plug is damaged or frayed. b. If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the TV. c. If the TV has been exposed to rain or water. d. If the TV does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions, as improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the TV to its normal operation. e. If the TV has been dropped or damaged in any way. f. When the TV exhibits a distinct change in performance, this indicates a need for service. 20.

SPECIFICATIONS Is antenna or cable connected to terminal on the back of the set? If outside antenna is being used, check for broken wire or loose connection. Check for local interference. GENERAL SPECIFICATIONS Turn off the TV and then turn it on after about a minute. Television system: Adjust COLOR control. Adjust CONTRAST & BRIGHT control. Closed Caption System: Channel coverage VHF: UHF: CATV: Check batteries in remote control. Move the TV away from the nearby appliances which generate a magnetic field. Turn off using [POWER], then turn it on again 30 minutes later or so. Check if there is an obstacle between the sensor and the remote control. Test the signal output.* If OK, then possible remote sensor trouble. *Additional Remote Test Tune an AM radio to a band with no broadcasting. Press a button on the remote control toward the radio. Sound will be fluttering when you press any key and the radio receives the signal. This means the remote control unit is working. Closed Caption Problem Tuning System: Possible Remedy Misspelled captions are shown. Spelling errors may pass through uncorrected by the closed captioning production company in a live broadcast. Text is not shown in its entirety or there is a delay of what is being said. Captions that are delayed a few seconds behind the actual dialogue are common for live broadcasts. Most captioning production companies can display a dialogue to a maximum of 220 words per minute. If a dialogue exceeds that rate, selective editing is used to insure that the captions remain up-to-date with the current TV screen dialogue. Captions are scrambled with white boxes on the TV screen. Interference caused by building, power lines, thunderstorms, etc. may cause scrambled or incomplete captions to appear. No captions are displayed in a program which must contain closed caption. Broadcasters may a time compression process to the actual program so that additional advertising time can be given. In this case, captions will be lost since the decoder cannot read the compressed information. No captions are displayed when playing a prerecorded videotape with closed caption.
