ANTENNA
Unless your TV is connected to a cable TV system or to a centralized antenna system,
a good outdoor color TV antenna is recommended for the best performance. However,
if you are located in an exceptionally good signal area that is free from interference, and
multiple image ghosts, an indoor antenna may be sufficient.
LOCATION
Select an area where sunlight or bright indoor illumination will not fall directly on the
picture screen. Also, be sure that the location selected allows free flow of air to and from
the perforated back cover of the set.
To prevent damaging the TV, do not leave the set in a place where the temperature
becomes too hot. For example, exposed to direct sunlight or near a heating device, etc.
VIEWING
This TV set may be viewed from any desired distance. Most viewers prefer a distance of
three to six feet or more, depending on screen size, for maximum eye comfort.

USING THE GENIUS REMOTE TO LEARN ADDITIONAL FUNCTIONS
• The Genius Remote is equipped with a learning function which allows it to learn
additional infrared control codes. This remote will not only control the television, a VCR,
and a cable box, but also other electronic equipment which uses an infrared remote
transmitter, by learning the transmitter's codes.
• Only infrared remote control codes can be stored in memory.
Before starting the memory operation
• Since the infrared signals sent from the remote transmitter may be reflected by a wall,
door, etc., even if the transmitter is not pointed directly at the device, it may operate.
When storing the remote control codes of another device, turn OFF the power of the
device (VCR, Cable Converter, etc.)
If you do not do this, the device may work unexpectedly. The power could be turned on,
an important tape could be erased, the volume could increase too much, etc..

humidity. Don't leave it on or near a heater. Excess heat or moisture may cause the unit to
cease operation.

remote sensor on the device.
2. Refer to the instruction manual of the VCR for operation of the buttons exclusively for the
VCR.
3. Be sure to keep the original remote transmitter even after storing its codes in the Genius
Remote Control
If the Genius Remote is left with its batteries removed, the learned codes in its memory are
erased and will have to be reprogrammed into the memory.
4. The Genius Remote Control may not be abel to learn certain special remote codes.
Caution on batteries
• The Genius Remote Control is working when the LEARN indicator lights up when a button
is pressed.
• When you press a button and the LEARN indicator will not light up or if the operation is
extremely slow, this is an indication that the batteries should be replaced.
• Even if the batteries seem dead, do not remove them until you have replacement batteries
ready to put in. The codes stored in memory will be erased in a few minutes without power.
When replaceing batteries prepare the new ones first.

RECEPTION PROBLEMS (EXTERNAL TO THE TV)
• IGNITION NOISE:
Black spots or horizontal streaks may appear, picture may flutter or drift. Usually
caused by interference from automobile ignition systems, neon lamps, electrical drills
and other electrical appliances.
• GHOSTS:
Ghosts are caused by the television signal following two paths. One is the direct path
and the other is reflected from tall buildings, hills or some other objects. Changing the
direction or position of the antenna may improve reception. Ghosting may also be
caused by defects in the antenna system such as unshielded leads or connecting
several sets to the same antenna without using multiple antenna couplers.
• SNOW:
If your receiver is located in the fringe area of a television station where the signal is
weak, your picture may be marred by the appearance of small dots. When the signal is
extremely weak, it may be necessary to install a special antenna to improve the picture.
• RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE:
The interference produces moving ripples or diagonal streaks, and in some cases,
causes loss of contrast in the picture.
