Preparation
Power Sources
You can power the TV/radio from any of
three power sources:
• C batteries (not supplied)
• standard AC power (using the supplied
AC adapter)
• vehicle battery power (using the
supplied DC power cord)
Using Standard Batte
ttery Power
You can power the TV/radio from ten C
batteries. For the best performance and
longest life, we recommend alkaline
batteries. You can also use rechargeable
nickel-cadmium batteries. Your local
RadioShack store carries a full line of
batteries.
Note: If you use rechargeable nickelcadmium batteries, you need a compatible
battery charger, available at your local
RadioShack store.
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.
• Ensure the TV/radio is off before
installing new batteries.
2
Follow these steps to install batteries.
1. Carefully turn the TV/radio upsidedown and gently press the arrow on the
battery compartment cover. Push the
cover in the direction of the arrow to
remove it.
2. Install ten C batteries in the battery
compartment as indicated by the
polarity symbols (+ and –) marked
inside.
Caution: Installing the batteries with
incorrect polarity can damage your TV/
radio.
3. Replace the cover. Be sure the tab on the
cover locks into the slot on the case.
When the TV picture shrinks, replace or
recharge the batteries.
Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly
and properly. Do not burn or bury them.
Caution: If you do not plan to use the TV/
radio with batteries for a month or more,
remove the batteries. Batteries can leak
chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.
Note: Battery life can vary greatly,
depending on how you use your TV/radio.
Using AC Power
Cautions:
!
You must use a Class 2 power
source that supplies 13.5V
DC and delivers at least 1000
mA. Its center tip must be set to positive
and its plug must fit the TV/radio's DC
12V jack. The supplied adapter meets

these specifications. Using an adapter
that does not meet these specifications
could damage the TV/radio or the
adapter.
1. Make sure the supplied DC power
cord’s knurled ring is screwed firmly
onto its plug.
• Always connect the AC adapter to the
TV/radio before you connect it to AC
power. When you finish, disconnect the
adapter from AC power before you
disconnect it from the TV/radio.
To use AC power, connect the supplied AC
adapter’s barrel plug to DC 12V on the back
of the TV/radio. Then plug the adapter’s
other end into a standard AC outlet. When
you connect the AC adapter, the batteries
automatically disconnect.
2. Plug the small end of the supplied DC
power cord into the DC 12V jack on the
back of the TV/radio.
3. Unplug your vehicle’s cigarette lighter,
and plug the large end of the DC power
cord into the cigarette-lighter socket.
When you connect the DC power cord,
the internal batteries automatically
disconnect.
If the TV/radio stops working, check the
fuse in the DC power cord (see
“Changing the Fuse” on Page 6).
Using Vehicle Battery Power
Cautions:
You must use a power source
that supplies 12V DC and
delivers at least 1000 mA. Its
center tip must be set to positive and its
plug must fit the TV/radio's DC 12V jack.
The supplied adapter meets these
specifications. Using an adapter that
does not meet these specifications could
damage the TV/radio or the adapter.
!
• Always connect the adapter to the TV/
radio before you connect it to the power
source. When you finish, disconnect
the DC adapter from the power source
before you disconnect it from the TV/
radio.
Using an Antenna
nna
Using the Teles
elescopi
oping Antenna
The built-in telescoping antenna provides
good reception of FM, VHF, and UHF
broadcast signals.
Extend the antenna vertically to its full
length for channels 2 to 6 (VHF-L) and 14 to
69 (UHF).
Extend the antenna to a shorter length for
the best reception for channels 7 to 13
(VHF-H).

nna
For improved reception, you can connect a
standard outdoor VHF/UHF antenna to the
EXT ANT. jack on the back of the TV/radio.
If an outside antenna or cable system is
connected to the product, be sure the
antenna or cable system is grounded to
provide some protection against voltage
urges and built-up static charges. Article 810
of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA
70, provides information with regard to
proper grounding of the mast and
supporting structure, grounding of the leadin wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of
grounding conductors, location of antennadischarge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements for the
grounding electrode.
Notes:
• Your local RadioShack store has a wide
selection of antennas and adapters.
• For better reception in your vehicle,
you can connect a mobile TV antenna
(available at your local RadioShack
store) to the television’s EXT ANT. jack.
Using Earphones or
Headph
dphones
For private listening, plug a pair of stereo
earphones or headphones with a 1/8 –inch
mini-plug (not supplied) into the jack on
the left side of the TV/radio.
Listening Saf
Safely
ely
To protect your hearing, follow these
guidelines when you use earphones or
headphones.
• 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.

Conne
nnecting an Audio/video
Source
You can use your TV/radio to monitor an
audio/video source (such as a , camcorder or
video cassette player). Connect the audio/
video source’s output jacks to the AUDIO
INPUT and VIDEO INPUT jacks on the back
of the TV/radio.

Do not wear earphones or headphones while
operating a motor vehicle or a bicycle. This
can create a traffic hazard and could be
illegal in some areas.
Even though some earphones and
headphones let you hear some outside
sounds when listening at normal volume
levels, they still can present a traffic hazard.

Reception Tips:
• If the image is blurry, unstable or has
“snow,” the signal reception might be
weak. This can be caused by your
location or the telescoping antenna’s
position and length.
• Buildings with steel construction can
also cause reception problems. Try
changing the antenna’s position and
length. If this does not help, use an
outdoor antenna.
• If the image does not fill the screen
during battery power operation, the
batteries are weak. Replace or recharge
the batteries.

Recepti
ption Tips:
• Weak FM reception can be caused by
your location, the telescoping antenna’s
position and length, and buildings with
steel construction. Try changing the
antenna’s position and adjusting the
length. If this does not help, use an
outdoor antenna.
• Weak AM reception might be caused by
the distance from the station or by
operating the TV/radio in a building
with steel construction. The TV/radio
has a built-in AM antenna. Turn the TV/
radio in different directions for the best
reception.
Care
Keep the TV/radio dry; if it gets wet, wipe it
dry immediately. Use and store the TV/radio
only in normal temperature environments.
Handle the TV/radio carefully; do not drop
it. Keep the TV/radio away from dust and
dirt, and wipe it with a damp cloth
occasionally to keep it looking new.
Modifying or tampering with the TV/radio’s
internal components can cause a
malfunction and might invalidate its
warranty.
This TV has been manufactured to the
specifications of RadioShack and is covered
by a limited warranty from RadioShack. If
your TV is not operating as it should, take it
to your local RadioShack store or call 1-800THE-SHACK for assistance.

Changing the Fuse
If the TV/radio does not work while using
vehicle battery power, check the fuse by
following these steps.
1. Unscrew the knurled ring on the DC
power cord and remove the spring to
check the fuse.
2. If the fuse is bad, replace it with a 2amp fuse, available at your local
RadioShack store. Do not use a fuse
with a different rating.
3. Replace the spring and the knurled ring.
Tighten the ring securely.
The FCC Wants You To Know

your TV/radio might cause TV or radio
interference even when it is operating
properly. To eliminate interference, you can
try one or more of the following
correctivemeasures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving
antenna
• Increase the distance between this
product and the radio or TV
• Use outlets on different electrical
circuits for this product and the radio or
TV
• Consult your local RadioShack store if
the problem still exists.
