IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
11. Grounding or Polarization-This video product 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

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/VCR, 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 regard 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,

CLOSED CAPTION PROBLEM
POSSIBLE REMEDY
My TV/VCR is showing captions that
are misspelled
You are watching a live broadcast
and spelling caption errors made by
the closed captioning production
company may pass through
uncorrected. A prerecorded program
will not show any misspelled words
because of the normal time available
for editing the captions.
My TV/VCR will not show the text 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 is captioning production
companies can display a dialogue to
a maximum of 220 words per minute.
55
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
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.
My captions are scrambled with white
boxed on the TV.
Interference caused by building,
power lines, thunderstorms, etc. may
cause scrambled or incomplete
captions to appear.
My program guide listed a TV show as being
closed captioned but none of the captions
were displayed information.
Broadcasters may at times use a time
compression process to speed up the actual
program so that additional advertising time
can be given. Since the decoder cannot read
the compressed captions will be lost.
My prerecorded video tape does not show
any captions. The tape box it as being
closed captioned.
The video tape was either an illegal copy or
the tape duplicating company accidentally left
out the captioning signals during the copy
process.
My TV screen shows a black box on certain
channels
You are in the TEXT mode. Select CAPTION
mode Or CAPTION [OFF].

MAINTENANCE
MAINTENANCE
CABINET CLEANING
• Wipe the front panel and other exterior surfaces of the TV/VCR with a soft
cloth immersed in lukewarm water and wrung dry.
• Never use a solvent or alcohol. Do not spray insecticide liquid near the
TV/VCR. Such chemicals may cause damage and discoloration to the
exposed surfaces.
HEAD CLEANING
• Picture playback may become blurred or interrupted while the TV program
reception is clear. This does not mean that the recorded program has been
erased. Dirt accumulated on the video heads after long periods of tape
playback, or the usage of rental or worn tapes can cause this problem. In this
case, video head cleaning requires highly technical attention, therefore
consult the nearest Authorized Service Center. Clean heads only when
problems occur.
SERVICING
• Should your TV/VCR become inoperative, do not try to correct the problem
by yourself. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Turn off, unplug the
power cord, and take the unit to the nearest Authorized Service Center for
servicing.
