palm of your hand. Even though your TV is
small, it is packed with great features:
Fluorescent Backlight — illuminates the
LCD screen so you can watch the TV in the
dark or in low-light conditions.
2.5-Inch TFT Active Matrix Flat Liquid
Crystal (LCD) Display — makes the TV more
compact, and uses less power than a standard
picture tube.
Built-in Rod Antenna — provides adequate
reception in most metropolitan areas.
Feat
eatures
Automatic Electronic Tuning System —
scans the VHF or UHF band and locks on to
active channels.
Three Power Options — lets you power the
TV using internal batteries (not supplied) or
an optional AC or DC adapter.
Audio/Video Jack — lets you connect a
camcorder, VCR, laser disc player, or any
device that has A/V outputs.
Earphone Jack — lets you enjoy private
listening with an optional earphone.
Important: An external antenna jack is not
available on this TV. Do not attempt to

unstable, replace the batteries.
Power
BATTERIES
• Internal batteries automatically
disconnect when you connect an adapter
to the DC IN 6V jack.
Your TV uses three AA batteries (not
supplied) for power. For the best
performance and longest life, we recommend
alkaline batteries, available at your local
RadioShack Store.
Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly
and properly. Do not bury or burn them.
Caution: Always remove old or weak
batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can
destroy electronic parts.
Cautions:
• Use only fresh batteries of the required
size and recommended type.
AC POWER
• Do not mix old and new batteries,
different types of batteries (standard,
alkaline, or rechargeable), or
rechargeable batteries of different
capacities.
You can power the TV from a standard AC
outlet using an optional AC adapter available
at your local RadioShack store.
Cautions:
Follow these steps to install the batteries.
You must use a Class 2
power source that supplies
6V DC and delivers at least
550 mA. Its center tip must
be set to positive and its plug must fit
the TV's DC IN 6V jack. Using an
adapter that does not meet these
specifications could damage the TV or
the adapter.
!
1. Slide off the battery compartment’s cover
(on the front of the TV) in the direction
of the arrow, and remove it.
• Always connect the AC adapter to the
TV before you connect it to AC power.
When you finish, disconnect the
adapter from AC power before you
disconnect it from the TV.
2. Insert three fresh batteries into the
compartment aligning the positive (+)
poles with the positive polarity symbols
(+) marked inside.
Set the adapter’s voltage switch to 6V. Plug
the adapter’s 4.0 mm outer diameter/1.7 mm
inner diameter barrel plug into the TV’s DC IN
6V jack. Then plug the other end of the
adapter into a standard AC outlet.
Cautions:
• Do not leave the adapter plugged into
the AC outlet or connected to the TV
when you are not using the TV.
Caution: Installing batteries incorrectly
can damage the TV.
• Always unplug the adapter from the AC
outlet first.
3. Replace the cover.
• The adapter might become warm after
extended periods of use.
Notes:
• The TV can operate for about 3 hours
with alkaline batteries. When the sound

different channel. The tuning line on the
screen aligns with the selected channel
number below the screen.
You can use an optional DC adapter to power
the TV from a vehicle’s cigarette-lighter socket
if the vehicle has a 12-volt DC, negative
ground electrical system.
3. To adjust the volume, rotate VOLUME
located on the right side of the TV.
Cautions:
You must use a power
source that supplies 6V DC
and delivers at least 550
mA. Its center tip must be
set to positive and its plug must fit the
TV's DC IN 6V jack. Using an adapter
that does not meet these specifications
could damage the TV or the adapter.
4. To adjust the picture to the desired
brightness, rotate BRIGHT located on the
right side of the TV. The brightness also
changes with the screen’s angle.
!
Notes:
• In low temperatures, the TV screen takes
a few seconds to light, or it might be
slightly red in color. This is not a
malfunction. Normal operation resumes
after a few seconds.
• Always connect the DC adapter to the
TV before you connect it to the power
source. When you finish, disconnect the
adapter from the power source before
you disconnect it from the TV.
• If reception is poor, adjust the length or
angle of the rod antenna. If inside a metal
or concrete building, moving closer to a
window might improve reception.
1. Set the adapter’s voltage switch to 6V.
2. Attach the adapter’s 4 mm outer
diameter/1.7 mm inner diameter
barrel plug, aligning + with TIP, and
plug it into the TV’s DC IN 6V jack.
• If desired, fold out the stand on the back
of the TV and lean the TV on a flat
surface at a convenient angle.
USING THE TV AS A MONITOR
3. Unplug the vehicle’s cigarette lighter and
plug the large end of the DC adapter
cord into the cigarette-lighter socket.
You can play back the signal from an audio/
video component connected to your TV using
a Y-adapter cable (not supplied). We
recommend RadioShack Cat. No. 42-2475
available at your local RadioShack store.
Cautions:
• Do not leave the adapter plugged into
the cigarette-lighter socket or connected
to the TV when you are not using the TV.
Connect the cable’s white plug to the
component’s video output jack and its red
plug to the component’s audio output jack.
Then, plug the cable’s sub-mini plug into the
TV’s AUDIO/VIDEO jack.
• Always disconnect the adapter from the
cigarette-lighter socket first.
Note: If the TV does not operate properly when
you use DC power, be sure the cigarette-lighter
socket is clean and that the adapter’s plug is
properly connected to the socket.
Note: Connecting an audio/video component
disables the TV’s antenna.
USING AN EARPHONE
Using Your TV
For private listening, you can connect an
optional earphone with a 1/8-inch plug to the
EAR jack. This automatically mutes the builtin speaker.
1. Extend the rod antenna and slide UHF/
VHF/OFF to VHF or UHF. The TV starts
scanning and stops at the next active
channel in the selected band.

und.
To protect your hearing, follow these
guidelines when you use an earphone.
• Be sure the antenna is fully extended.
Adjust the antenna’s angle and direction
for the best reception.
• Be sure the batteries are fresh.
• Be sure the TV is away from appliances
that might cause interference.
• In locations with poor reception, it might
be impossible to get a clear picture or
any picture at all. Change the location.
• 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.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. Operation of this device is subject to
the following two conditions:
1. The TV may not cause harmful
interference.
Traffic Safety
Do not wear an earphone while operating a
motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can
create a traffic hazard and could be illegal in
some areas.
2. The TV must accept any interference
received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
Even though some earphones let you hear
some outside sounds when listening at
normal volume levels, they still can present a
traffic hazard.
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.

Care
Your RCA Color Pocket TFT LCD TV is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. These
suggestions will help you care for it so you can enjoy it for years.
• Keep the TV dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.
• Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type. Always remove old or
weak batteries. They can leak chemicals that destroy electronic circuits.
• Handle the TV gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and
can cause the TV to work improperly. Be particularly careful of the display screen. Avoid
putting the TV in your pocket or purse together with hard objects (coins, keys, etc.).
• Use and store the TV only in normal temperature environments.
• Keep the TV away from dust and dirt.
• Wipe the TV with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh
chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the TV.
Modifying or tampering with the TV’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might
invalidate the TV’s warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it.
