e) If the television equipment has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.

f) When the television equipment exhibits a distinct change

in performance this indicates

a need for service.

18. When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by the manufacturer that have the same characteristics as the original part.

Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock or other hazards.

19. Upon completion of any service or repairs to this television equipment, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to determine that the television is in a safe operating condition.

20. If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the television receiver, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built up static charges.

6- Chapter 1: Overview of your Equipment

Connecting an Antenna or cable to Your TV

Your TV will provide you with the best performance if you connect it to an external antenna or cable system. Follow the directions below to make this connection. Please note that you will normally only have to make one of the connections shown below, not all of them.

All connections will be made to the antenna terminal on the back of your TV. The antenna terminal is a silver metal post partially surrounded by two plastic tabs. For help in locating the antenna terminal, see “Your TV’s Back Panel” on page 4.

If you purchased model AVT-1928 there is no antenna provided with your TV.

Connecting an Antenna

If your antenna ends in a pair of 300 ohm twin leads, you must use a 300-ohm/75-ohm adapter.

Place the leads underneath the screws on the adapter, tighten the screws, then press the adapter onto the antenna terminal on the back of the TV. (the adapter is not included with your TV).

Chapter 2: Connecting to an Antenna or Cable to your TV- 7

Antennas with two sets of leads

You might have two sets of leads from your antenna system, especially if you have one antenna for

VHF signals and one antenna for UHF signals.

If your antenna system has both a coaxial lead and twin 300 ohm leads, you must obtain a combiner (available at your local electronics store). Press or screw the coaxial lead onto the combiner; place the twin leads underneath the screws on the combiner and tighten the screws. Press the cable from the combiner onto the antenna terminal on the back of your TV.

If your antenna system has two sets of twin 300 ohm leads, you must obtain a combiner

9available at your local electronics store). Place one set of twin leads underneath the screws on the combiner and tighten the screws. Do the same with the other set of twin leads. Press the cable from the combiner onto the antenna terminal on the back of your TV.

Connecting a cable system

If your cable set-up is not described below, please contact your local cable company for more information.

If your cable system does not require the

cable box, simply press or screw the incoming cable onto the antenna terminal on the back of your TV.

8- Chapter 2: Connecting an Antenna or Cable to Your TV

If your cable system requires you to use a converter box for all channels, connect the incoming cable to the IN terminal on the converter box. Connect another cable between the OUT terminal on the converter box and the antenna terminal on the TV.

If your cable system only requires you to use a converter box for some channels (i.e. pay-TV

channels), follow these steps: Find the primary incoming coaxial cable. Plug this cable into the splitter available at your local electronics store). Connect the one coaxial cable between one OUT terminal on the splitter and the IN terminal on the converter box. Connect another coaxial cable between the other OUT terminal on the splitter and the IN terminal on an A/B switch (available at your local electronics store). Connect a third coaxial cable between the OUT terminal on the converter box and the A-IN terminal on the A/B switch. Finally, connect a coaxial cable between the OUT terminal on the A/B switch and the antenna terminal on the back of your TV.

When the A/B switch is in the B position, you need to change channels on the converter box (and your Tv should be tuned to channel 3 or 4); when the A/B switch is in the A position you can change channels on the TV.

Connecting Other Pieces of Equipment

You may want to connect a VCR, laser disc player, satellite receiver, or another type of equipment to your TV. We recommend that you follow the instructions included with the piece of equipment you wish to connect.

Safety Note

If you plan on being away from your home for an extended peroid of time, or if a thunderstorm is approaching, you should unplug your television, and you may wish to disconnect your TV from a roof top or satellite antenna. You do not need to disconnect your TV from a cable system.

About captions

Once you have chosen a caption setting, all available captions on that setting will be displayed when you watch TV. If no captions appear, it is because there are no captions being broadcast for that show. Look for a “CC” mark in the TV listings or on video tapes. This mark indicates that captions are provided for that program.

Please note: The content and appearance of captions are determined by the broadcaster, not the TV. If the captions display strange characters, misspellings, or odd words, those errors are made by the Broadcaster, not your TV. Errors in captioning are more common during live programs than during taped programs.

Your TV cannot display captions when it is displaying any other on screen information. If you use the RECALL or VOL buttons, the captions will briefly disappear.

Changing captions with the remote control

1. You can also change the caption setting with the remote control. Repeatedly press the

CAPTION button on the remote control until the caption setting you prefer (off, C1, C2, T1, or

T2) appears.
