Caution:

The TV power plug has one prong wider than the other and will fit only one way into a standard electrical outlet(120VAC,60Hz).If the plug does not fit into the outlet, try turning it around. If the plug still does not fit, the outlet is probably non-standard and must be replaced by a qualified electrician.

Do not tamper with the plug or try to force it into a non-standard outlet.

Selecting a location for the TV

1) Place the TV on the floor or on a sturdy platform in a location where light does not directly hit the screen.

2) Place the TV far enough from the walls to allow proper ventilation. Inadequate ventilation may cause

overheating, which may damage the TV.

Connecting the aerial

To enjoy the terrestrial signal transmitted by your local TV station, you need an indoor or outdoor aerial (not supplied).

Perfect picture quality requires a good signal and generally means that an outdoor aerial must be implemented. The exact type and location of the aerial will depend on your particular area. Consult your local dealer or service personnel for best advice. If you are a subscriber of your local CATV net, the outdoor or indoor aerial is not needed.

Connecting your TV

Connecting a cable converter box

This television has an extended tuning range and can tune most cable channels without using a cable company supplied converter box. Some cable companies offer [premium pay channels] in which signal is scrambled. Descrambling these signals for normal viewing requires the use of a descrambler device which is generally provided by the cable company.

For subscribers to Basic Cable TV Service

For basic cable service not requiring a Converter/Descrambler box, connect the CATV 75 ohm Coaxial

Cable directly to the Antenna Jack on the back of the television.

For subscribers to Scrambled Cable TV Service

If you subscribe to a cable service which requires the use of a Converter/Descrambler box, connect the incoming cable to the Converter/Descrambler box and connect the output of the box to the Antenna Jack on the back of the television. Follow the connections shown below. Set the television to the output of the

Converter/Descrambler box(usually channel 3 or 4)and use the Converter/Descrambler box to select channels.

For Subscribers to Unscrambled Basic Cable with Scrambled Premium Channels

If you subscribe to a cable service in which basic cable channels are unscrambled and premium channels require the use of a Converter/Descrambled box, you may wish to use a two-set signal splitter(sometimes called [two set coupler]) and an A/B Switch box from the cable installer or an electronics supply store.

Follow the connections shown below. With the switch in the B position, you can directly tune any screwed channels on your TV. With the switch in the A position, tune your TV to the output of the

Converter/Descrambler box(usually channel 3 or 4) and use the box to tune scrambled channels.

Note:

When you use a converter box with your TV, there may be features that you cannot program using the remote control.
