FEATURES
Your RCA Color LCD TV fits in the palm of
your hand and receives AM and FM radio, as
well as VHF and UHF TV signals. Your
distinctively-styled compact TV has several
great features:
2 1/4-Inch Super-Twisted Nematic Display
— makes the TV more compact, and uses less
power than a standard picture tube.
Automatic Electronic Tuning System —
scans the VHF or UHF band and locks on to
active channels.
Fluorescent Backlight — illuminates the
LCD screen so you can watch the TV in the
dark or in low-light conditions.
Audio/Video In Jack — lets you connect a
camcorder, VCR, DVD player, or any device
that has A/V outputs using an optional A/V
cable.
Earphone Jack — lets you enjoy private
listening with an optional earphone.
DC Jack — lets you power your TV from
your vehicle battery using an optional DC
adapter. You can also use an optional AC
adapter with this jack.
Built-in Telescoping Rod Antenna —
provides adequate reception in most
metropolitan areas.

POW
POWER
BATTERIES
AC POWER
Your TV requires three AA batteries (not
supplied) for power. For the best
performance and longest life, we recommend
alkaline batteries, available at your local
RadioShack Store.
You can power the TV from a standard AC
outlet using an optional AC adapter available
at your local RadioShack store.
Cautions:
You must use a Class 2
power source that supplies
6V DC and delivers at least
520 mA. Its center tip must
be set to positive and its plug must fit
the TV's DC 6V jack. Using an adapter
that does not meet these specifications
could damage the TV or the adapter.
Cautions:
!
• Use only fresh batteries of the required
size and recommended type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries,
different types of batteries (standard,
alkaline, or rechargeable), or
rechargeable batteries of different
capacities.
• Always connect the AC adapter to the
TV before you connect it to AC power.
When you finish, disconnect the
adapter from AC power before you
disconnect it from the TV.
Follow these steps to install the batteries.
1. Slide open the battery compartment
cover on the back of the TV and remove
it.
1. Set the adapter’s voltage switch to 6V.
Three AA Batteries
2. Plug the adapter’s 4.0 mm outer
diameter/1.7 mm inner diameter barrel
plug into the TV’s DC 6V jack.
3. Plug the other end of the adapter into a
standard AC outlet.
Cautions:
• Do not leave the adapter plugged into
the AC outlet or connected to the TV
when you are not using the TV.
2. Insert the batteries into the compartment
as indicated by the polarity symbols (+
and –) marked inside.
• Always unplug the adapter from the AC
outlet first.
Caution: Installing batteries incorrectly
can damage the TV.
• It is normal for the adapter to become
warm after extended periods of use.
3. Replace the cover.
Note: The TV can operate for about 3.5 hours
with alkaline batteries. When the sound level
lowers or the picture becomes unstable,
replace the batteries.
USING VEHICLE BATTERY POWER
You can use an optional DC adapter to power
the TV from a vehicle’s cigarette-lighter socket
if the vehicle has a 12-volt DC, negative
ground electrical system.Your local
RadioShack store has a large variety of DC
adapters.
Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly
and properly. Do not bury or burn them.
Caution: Always remove old or weak
batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can
destroy electronic parts.

screen aligns with the selected channel
number above the screen.
Cautions:
You must use a power
source that supplies 6V DC

6. To adjust the picture to the desired
brightness, rotate BRIGHT located on the
top of the TV. The brightness also
changes with the screen’s angle.
• Always connect the DC adapter to the TV
before you connect it to the power
source. When you finish, disconnect the
adapter from the power source before
you disconnect it from the TV.
Notes:
• If reception is poor, adjust the length or
angle of the telescopic antenna. If inside
a metal or concrete building, moving
closer to a window might improve
reception.
1. Set the adapter’s voltage switch to 6V.
2. Attach the adapter’s 4 mm outer
diameter/1.7 mm inner diameter barrel
plug, aligning + with TIP, and plug it
into the TV’s DC 6V jack.
• If desired, fold out the stand on the back
of the TV and lean the TV on a flat
surface at a convenient angle.
3. Unplug the vehicle’s cigarette lighter and
plug the large end of the DC adapter
cord into the cigarette-lighter socket.
USING THE RADIO
1. Set TV OFF RADIO on top of the TV to
RADIO.
Cautions:

when you use DC power, be sure the
cigarette-lighter socket is clean and that the
adapter’s plug is properly connected to the
socket.
4. To adjust the volume, rotate VOLUME
located on the top of the TV.

of the antenna for the best FM reception. An
internal antenna is used for reception of AM
broadcasts.
OPERATION

optional earphone with a 1/8-inch plug to the
EAR jack. This automatically mutes the builtin speaker.

LISTENING SAFELY
• If you use an adapter, be sure it is
correctly connected.
To protect your hearing, follow these
guidelines when you use an earphone.
No picture and noisy sound
und.
• Set the volume to the lowest setting
before you begin listening. After you
begin listening, adjust the volume to a
comfortable level.
• Do not listen at extremely high volume
levels. Extended high-volume listening
can lead to permanent hearing loss.
• Once you set the volume, do not increase
it. Over time, your ears adapt to the
volume level, so a volume level that does
not cause discomfort might still damage
your hearing.
• Adjust the antenna.

TRAFFIC SAFETY
Do not wear an earphone while operating a
motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can
create a traffic hazard and could be illegal in
some areas.
• Be sure the antenna is fully extended.
Adjust the antenna’s angle and direction
for the best reception.
• Be sure the batteries are fresh.
• Be sure the TV is away from appliances
that might cause interference.
• In locations with poor reception, it might
be impossible to get a clear picture or
any picture at all. Change the location.
Even though some earphones let you hear
some outside sounds when listening at
normal volume levels, they still can present a
traffic hazard.

CARE
Your RCA Color Pocket LCD TV is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. These
suggestions will help you care for it so you can enjoy it for years.
• Keep the TV dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.
• Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type. Always remove old or
weak batteries. They can leak chemicals that destroy electronic circuits.
• Handle the TV gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and
can cause the TV to work improperly. Be particularly careful of the display screen. Avoid
putting the TV in your pocket or purse together with hard objects (coins or keys).
• Use and store the TV only in normal temperature environments.
• Keep the TV away from dust and dirt.
• Wipe the TV with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh
chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the TV.
