the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to
an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding connectors, location
of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode. See Figure below.
Object and Liquid Entry - Care should be taken so that objects
do not fall and liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through

• Remove batteries when the unit is not used for a long time.
Note to the CATV system installer: This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer's attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC
that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the
building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.

A
combination antenna receives normal
broadcast channels (VHF 2–13 and
UHF 14–69). Your connection is easy
because there is only one 75Ω (ohm)
antenna plug on the back of your TV, and
that’s where the antenna goes.

If your antenna has a round cable
(75 ohm) on the end, then you're ready
to connect it to the TV.
If your antenna has flat, twin-lead
wire (300 ohm), you first need to
attach the antenna wires to the screws
on a 300- to 75-ohm adapter.
Antenna Connection:

UNDERSTANDING THE AUTOLOCK™ CONTROLS
T
he AutoLock™ feature is an integrated circuit that receives and processes
data sent by broadcasters, or other program providers, that contain program content advisories. When programmed by the
viewer, a TV with AutoLock™ can respond
to the content advisories and block program content that may be found objectionable (such as offensive language, violence,
sexual situations, etc.). This is a great feature to censor the type of viewing children
may watch.
Over the next few pages you’ll learn how
to block channels and certain rated programming. Below is a brief explanation of
some terms and ratings you will find in the
AutoLock feature.
AutoLock™ offers various BLOCKING
controls from which to choose:
Access Code: An Access Code must be set
to prevent children from unblocking questionable programming.
Channel Block: Individual channels
including the A/V inputs can be blocked.
Clear All: Allows you clear all channels
being blocked from your viewing set with
the Channel Block Control.
Block All: Allows you to block ALL channels and A/V inputs at one time.
Movie Ratings: Block programming
based on ratings patterned by the Motion
Pictures Association of America.
TV Ratings: Block programming based
on standard TV ratings set by TV broadcasters.
To learn more about the Motion Picture
Ratings and the TV Ratings, refer to the
definitions listed on the columns to the
right.

CARE
AND
CLEANING
WARNING Concerning Stationary Images on the TV
Screen:
Do not leave stationary or letterbox images on screen
for extended periods of time. This can cause uneven
picture-tube aging.
Normal use of the TV should involve the showing of pictures
that contain constantly moving and changing images that fill the
screen. Be careful not to leave nonmoving images on screen for
extended periods of time, or to display the same images on
screen too frequently, because subtle ghost images can be left
on the picture tubes. Sources of stationary images may be DVD
disks, laser disks, video games, CD-i disks, videotapes, digital
television boxes, broadcast channels, cable channels, satellite
channels, and others. Here are some examples of stationary
images (this is not an all-inclusive list; you may encounter
others in your viewing):
• DVD menus—listings of DVD disk content
• Letterbox black bars—shown at the top and bottom of the
TV screen when a wide screen (16:9) movie is viewed on a
TV with standard (4:3) aspect ratio.
• Video-game images and scoreboards
• Television station logos—present a problem if they are
bright and stationary; moving or low-contrast graphics are
less likely to cause uneven aging of the picture tube
• Stock-market tickers—presented at the bottom of the TV
screen
• Shopping channel logos and pricing displays—bright
and shown constantly or repeatedly in the same location on
the TV screen.
PLACEMENT OF THE TV
• To avoid cabinet warping, cabinet color changes, and
increased chance of set failure, do not place the TV where
temperatures can become excessively hot; for example, in
direct sunlight or near a heating appliance.
• Be sure to allow a free flow of air to and from the perforated
back cover of the set.
CLEANING
• To avoid possible shock hazard, be sure the TV is unplugged
from the electrical outlet before cleaning.
• Regularly dust the TV with a dry, nonscratching duster to
keep the TV clean.
• When cleaning the TV, take care not to scratch or damage the
screen surface. Avoid wearing jewelry or using anything
abrasive. Do not use household cleaners. Wipe the front
screen with a clean cloth dampened with water. Use even,
easy, vertical strokes when cleaning.
• Gently wipe the cabinet surfaces with a clean cloth or sponge
dampened in a solution of cool, clear water and a mild soap
or detergent. Use a clean, dry cloth to dry the wiped surfaces.
• Occasionally vacuum the ventilation holes or slots in the back
cover of the set.
• Never use thinners, insecticide sprays, or other chemicals on
or near the cabinet, as they might cause permanent marring
of the cabinet finish.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS
Quadra Surf • The feature that allows the programming of
four separate Surf lists holding up to 10 channels each.
Auto Programming • The procedure of adding or deleting
channel numbers into the Television’s memory circuits. In this
way the Television “remembers’’ only the locally available or
desired channel numbers and skips over any unwanted channel
numbers.
Remote Sensor Window • A window or opening found on
the Television control panel through which infrared remote control command signals are received.
Coaxial Cable • A single solid antenna wire normally matched
with a metal plug (F-type) end connector that screws (or pushes)
directly onto a 75 Ohm input found on the Television or VCR.
Closed Caption • Broadcast standard which allows you to
read the voice content of television programs on the TV screen.
Designed to help the hearing impaired this feature uses onscreen "text boxes" to show dialogue and conversations while
the TV program is in progress.
Audio/Video Inputs • Located on the back of the TV, these
connectors (phono type plug) are used for the input of audio and
video signals. Designed for easy use with accessory devices.
On Screen Displays (OSD) • Refers to the wording or messages generated by the television (or VCR) to help the user with
specific feature controls (color adjustment, programming, etc.).
Menu • An on-screen listing of feature controls shown on the
Television screen that are made available for user adjustments.
Status/Exit • Allows the user to quickly confirm what channel
number is currently being viewed. Status can also be used to
clear the Television of on screen displays or information (rather
than waiting for the displays to “time out” or automatically disappear from the screen).
Surf • The action of scanning specific channel in a limited
channel list.
Twin Lead Wire • The more commonly used name for the
two strand 300 Ohm antenna wire used with many indoor and
outdoor antenna systems. In many cases this type of antenna
wire requires an additional adapter (or balun) in order to connect to the 75 Ohm Input terminals designed into the more
recent Televisions and VCRs.
Tuner Mode • Feature control settings made by the TV.
Designed for first time set up and use. Settings for signal connections (antenna or cable TV), plus channel program memory
are held in the TV's memory (even if the set is unplugged and
moved to a new location.)
