Before attempting to operate your
remote control, install the batteries
as shown here.
The remote control produces an
invisible (infrared) beam that travels
in a straight line much as the beam
of a flashlight. For this reason,
when operating the remote control,
you must point it directly at the front
of the TV without objects between
that can block the infrared light
beam.
--Installing/Replacing
Batteries
1. Turn the remote control face
down.
Your remote control is designed to
be very rugged and will withstand a
,considerable drop. If it receives an
extreme blow, the case is designed
to slightly separate at the seam
:rather than fracture. If this happens,
:simply squeeze the case where it
:separated until it snaps back
together. The operation of the
:remote will probably not be affected.
2. Press down on the ridged area of
the battery cover and slide it off.
3. Install four "AAA" batteries in the
battery compartment as shown.
Make sure you insert the negative
(-) end of each battery first.
4. Replace the cover and turn remote
over-face up.
Notes:
• Never place anything heavy on top of
the remote control or lay it upsidedown. This may accidentally depress
the buttons for a long time and
discharge the batteries.
• Replace the batteries when the TV fails
to respond to the remote control.
• If you programmed your remote to
control other components, you may
have to reprogram the code numbers
when you change the batteries. Try not
to press any buttons while changing
batteries.

Custom
Picture
Memory
for Input Channels
The channel numbers you select to see signals from components
(like a VCR) that are connected to the INPUT jacks on the back of
the TV are called input channels. Selecting channel 90 lets you see
the _ignal coming from whatever component is attached to the
S-VIDEO connector, channel 91 lets you see the signal from the
1NPUT 1 jacks, and channel 92 lets you see the signal from the
INPUT 2 jacks. Your TV is equipped with a custom picture
memory for these input channels. When the TV is tuned to one of
these channels (90, 91, 92), you can change the picture settings for
that component's signal as desired without changing the settings of
any other channel. This is very useful because you'll be able to
adjust for the best picture from each of your components and the
TV will remember those settings automatically the next time you
tune that input channel.

Your projection TV has three color
projection tubes-one for red, one for
green, and one for blue. When mixed
together in the proper proportion, the
output of these three color tubes can
produce many colors. To produce
these colors, however, the beams
must be precisely aligned over each
other so that the colors can be mixed.
The process of aligning these picture
beams is called setting the
"convergence".

The STEREO/SAP function lets you choose either MON.O (monaural),
STEREO, or SAP audio (if available) by pressing + or-. When a station is
broadcasting stereo and the STEREO/SAP function is set to STEREO, the
stereo indicator (STEREO) will appear on the screen before the channel
number. Normally you can leave the STEREO/SAP function set to
STEREO and your TV will then automatically reproduce either monaural or
stereo audio--whichever is broadcast. Some TV stations that broadcast
stereo also broadcast another sound channel called SAP (Second Audio
Program) which is sometimes used to offer the program in another
language. Your TV lets you know when SAP audio is available by
displaying an asterisk (,) on the screen after the stereo indicator like this
(STEREO*). If you want to listen to the SAP channel when the asterisk
appears, change the STEREO/SAP function to its SAP setting. The SAP
setting will only appear in the function when SAP is available. Your TV
will then reproduce the SAP audio until you change channels or return the
STEREO/SAP function back to STEREO.
Note: Some TV stations transmit a "pilot" signal that makes your TV
think it's receiving stereo, even though the broadcast signal is monaural.
The pilot signal will make the stereo indicator (STEREO) appear on the
screen next to the channel number, however, you will not be able to hear
stereo sound. If this happens, check with the TV station to inquire whether
the program being broadcast is in true stereo or monaural audio.
The SRS: ON/OFF function lets you add greater depth and dimension to
stereo broadcasts. You can turn this function on and off as desired by
pressing + or- to change the setting between ON and OFF. You may
prefer to leave this function set to ON. Your TV will then automatically
process the stereo signals whenever a stereo broadcast is received (or
whenever a stereo tape is played through a stereo VCR that is connected to
the TV's andio/video jacks labeled INPUT). Details are on page 17.
The SRS WIDTH function lets you enhance the perceived audio separation
that occurs when the above SRS function is ON. Pressing + or- changes
the setting between NORMAL and ENHANCE. Details are on page t7.
The audio menu will automatically disappear from the

Via remote control, your TV will "remember" which

Compatible
Components
A wide variety of compatible RCA Video Cassette Recorders
(VCRs), camcorders, and audio components are available.
Check with your RCA dealer for details.
Other brands of components can also be connected to your TV.
Refer to the component's owner's manual for the
manufacturer's recommended hookup instructions.
Stacking Arrangements
If you are connecting several components and plan to use a
component rack, follow these general rules when arranging your
components.
• If the components are arranged horizontally, allow at least an
inch or two of space between them so air can circulate freely.
This will also provide some space between the audio devices
to minimize interference.
• If components are arranged vertically on shelves, place the
Stereo Amplifier at the top so that heated air rising from it will
not pass around the other components.
•Do not block the ventilation holes in the components. If
components are placed on rugs or deep-pile mats, the
ventilation holes in the bottoms may be blocked and
overheating could result.
•Some VCRs may cause interference in TVs. When placing a
VCR under your TV, try to keep at least 18 inches between the
bottom of the TV and the top of the VCR. If interference is
present when the VCR is used on top of the TV or at the
18-inch distance below the set, move the VCR beside the TV.
If moving the VCR does not solve the interference problem,
try plugging the VCR into a different wall socket.
Plugging in Power Cords
Do not plug any power cord into a wall outlet until you are
finished making connections.
Many components have "convenience outlets" on their back
panels so you can plug power cords from other components into
a "convenience outlet" instead of a wall outlet. Usually these
outlets will be labeled either "switched" or "unswitched".
• If the outlet is labeled "switched", that means power to the
outlet will be switched off when the component's power button
is switched off.
•If the outlet is labeled "unswitched", that means power ,will
aiways be available at that outlet, even when the component is
turned off.
Depending on the size of your system, you may prefer to use an
extension cord or a "multiple adapter" to get enough outlets for
all your components.
28
The power cords on your RCA components are "polarized" (one
blade is wider than the other). Be sure the extension cord or
multiple adapter is also polarized. The plug should fit in the
outlet only one way.
Turning Off Power Before Connecting
Components
Always turn off power to all components before you connect or
disconnect any cables. This will protect your components from
possible electrical surges that could damage your equipment.
This is a good practice for all your audio and video
components-TVs, VCRs, audio systems, computers, etc.
Positioning
Cables to Avoid Hum
The possibility of picking up hum (interference noise) in the
audio/video cables will be reduced if you keep them away from
the back of the TV. Route the cables to the sides of the TV's
back panel instead of straight down the middle.
All cable plugs should be fLrmly seated in the jacks where they
connect to the equipment. If a plug is not connected firmly,
audio hum or smeared video may result.
If your antenna cable is flat twin-lead cable, try to keep it away
from the audio/video cables as much as possible. Excess flat,
twin-lead cable should be cut off instead of coiled behind the
TV. Round, coaxial, antenna cable is usually shielded and can
be coiled or placed next to audio/video cables without causing
interference.
Positioning
Speakers
to Avoid Interference
Placing extemai speakers with unshielded magnets too close to
the TV may result in the speaker magnets affecting the quality
of the picture. Such speakers should be located at least eight
inches away.
If unshielded speakers axe too close to the TV, colored streaks
will appear along the sides of the picture. If this happens, turn
off the TV for several minutes while moving the speakers
farther away. Then turn the TV back on.

Remember to tune the

(usually 2, 3, or 4).
Most cable companies that require use of a converter/decoder b_x
only require the box for scrambled premium channels like HBO or
Showtime. All the other eable-TV channels can usually be viewed
without the converter box. Therefore, by using a signal splitter, you
can s,md the incoming cable-TV signals directly to the TV and also
thru the converter/decoder box and VCR as shown above.
You can easily switch between the signals coming into the ANTA
jack and the ANTB jack by pressing the ANTENNA button on the
remote control. The channel numbers will change color to let you
kno_ which antenna signal you are watching. When the numbers
are bltue, you are seeing the ANTA signals. When the numbers are
yellow, you are seeing the ANTB signals.
The cable-TV channels that are not scrambled can then be seen
whenever the TV is receiving the ANTA signals. The cable-TV
channels that are scrambled can then be seen thru the converter box
and then thru the VCR whenever the TV is receiving the ANTB
Sigmds. Most VCRs will feed the signal thru their antenna jacks
even when the VCR is turned off. This allows you to watch
scrambled channels from the converter box without having to turn
on _te VCR.
This connection can be useful because it will let you record a
scrambled channel on the VCR at the same time you are watching a
non-scrambled channel thru the ANTA jack on the TV.
For picture-in-picture viewing, be sure to also connect the audio and
video cables from the VCR to the TV as shown on pages 35-36.

Your new TV is designed to receive up
to 181 channels in the U.S.A. including
125 non-scrambled cable channels (see
chart below). To use this TV ori a cableTV system, confirm that the cable-TV
system is properly connected to your TV.
Since cable systems vary, you may wish
to consult your local cable-TV company
for additional information.
If your cable-TV company follows
EIA/NCTA channel-identification
standards, most of the channels offered
by your cable company will be identified
by channel numbers that are identical to
those on your TV. For example, if your
cable-TV system has programs on cable
channel 20, you can choose this channel'
by selecting channel 20 on your TV.
Some cable-TV companies do not follow
the EIA/NCTA standards and instead
assign their own channel identification.
For example, some use the standard
broadcast channel numbers (2-13) for
channels 2-13, but identify their other
channels with letters. If your cable
company does not $ollow the EIA/NCTA
standards, ask them for a cross reference
that shows to which channels you should
tune your "IV.to receive their cable-TV
channels.
Not all cable-TV channels will be active
on your particular cable-TV system.
Also some cable companies may require
the use of a decoder with their cable-TV
system. Consult your cable company or
local dealer for details.
Scrambled Cable-TV Channels
Some cable companies offer "premiumpay" channels in which the signal is
scrambled. Descrambling these signals
for normal viewing requires the use of a
descrambler device (cable box) which is
generally provided by the cable
company,
How you connect the cable boxto your
TV depends upon whether or not the
cable box can be controlled by remote
control. The TV's remote can also
control most brands of cable boxes, so ff
your cable box is remote controllable,
you may want to connect it as shown in
Diagram B on page 31. Instructions for
programming the TV's remote to control
the cable box are on page 33.
If your cable box cannot be controlled by
remote control, you Will still be able to
remotely control "unscrambled"
channels with the connection shown in
If your cable company offers cable
channels 90, 91, or 92 you can tune them
by selecting the TV channels shown

VI-/F is only counted once in total channel count because you can receive channels 2-13 on
both "off-air" and "cable" channels. Therefore the total channel count for "off-air" and
"cable" is 181 channels (68+125-12=181).
Charmels 95, 96, and 97 are not applicable in Canada. Therefore the total number of

Note About Controlling Two VCRs •
• This remote can control two VCRs
independently as long as each VCR operates
on a different remote transmitting code.
• Some newer VCRs are capable of working
on either of two remote codes. These VCRs
have either a switch labeled VCR1/VCR2 or
an on-screen display tiffed REMOTE
VCR1/VCR2. You can then set your new
VC.R to respond to the remote's VCR2*LD
button and your older VCR to respond to the
VCR1 button.
• Some older VCRs have a NORM/UNIFIED
switch that can also respond to either the
VCR1 or VCR2.LD button on the remote.
Place this switch in the UNIFIED position
fox the VCR to respond to the VCR1 button
or in the NORM position for the VCR2.LD
button. In the NORM position; you must
program the VCR2*LD button to respond to
code number 05.
• If neither of your VCRs have switchable
code capabilities, you still may be able to
use the VCR1/VCR2 feature to control two
VCRs of the same brand since many older
VCRs use remote codes that are different
than newer VCRs. You may want to
experiment to see what works with your

Note: Refer to the information sheet packed with your remote control for the latest list of brand
names and code numbers. Because this list of brand names is continually growing, the
information sheet packed with your remote control may be a later version of this list and contain
additional brands and/or code numbers.

Caution: Do not connect external speakers to more than one audio source at a time. You can connect a set of
speakers to either the TV or the Amplifier but not to both at the same time. If you connect the same speakers to
both the TV and the amplifier, you will damage your equipment.
Connecting
Speakers to Back of TV
If you connect an amplifier or receiver to your TV, connect the
speakers to the amplifier/receiver instead of the TV.
If you do not connect an amplifier or receiver to your TV, you
can connect external speakers to the "IV to enhance the TV's
sound.
The diagram below shows how to connect external speakers to
the speaker terminals on the back of the TV.
1. Remove the vinyl covering and twist the wire core.
2. Press and hold the lever down while inserting the wire core
into the hole. Be sure to connect (+) to (+) and (-) to (-) as
explained in the note below.
3. Release the lever.
_
Notes:
• After releasing the lever, pull gently on the wire and
check that it is connected securely to its terminal.
• Do not allow the wire core to protrude from its terminal or
contact other wires or terminals. If the cores of two wires
touch each other, damage to components could result.
Helpful Hints:
• External speakers placed next to the TV will sound better the
higher quality they are.
• Very efficient small "bookshelf" or "compact" speakers will
give good results for surround-sound use.
• Surround effect can often be improved by experimenting
with rear speaker placement.
• Surround-encoded movies (broadcast or tape) give the best
surround effect, but regular stereo and mono programs will
also benefit.
Connecting
Receiver
Speakers
to Back of Amplifier
or
If you connect an Amplifier or Receiver to your TV, connect
the speakers to the Amplifier/Receiver instead of the TV.
Sound from the TV will then come through the
Amplifier/Receiver and the TV's internal speakers. You can
turn off the TV's internal speakers with the SPEAKERS:
ON/OFF function described on page 16.
The diagram here shows how to connect external speakers to
the speaker terminals on the back of a typical
Amplifier/Receiver. Check the owner's manual for your
Amplifier/Receiver if its speaker terminals look different than
those shown.
The speaker switch on the back of the TV allows you to use the
external speakers two ways:
• To enhance the sound from the TV, place the speakers in the
front of the viewing area (usually beside the TV), and slide
the speaker switch to EXT. This provides full power to the
external speakers for a "fuller" sound. The internal audio
from the TV's speakers will be turned off.

r
Notes:
• After connecting speaker wire, pull it gently and check
that it is connected securely to its terminals.
• Do not allow the wire core to protrude from its
terminal or contact other wires or terminal. If the cores
of two wires touch each other, damage to components
could result.
• To obtain a "surround sound" effect, place the external
speakers in the rear of the viewing area, and slide the
speaker switch to INT/EXTSURR. This provides full power
to the TV's internal speakers for the front sound and a
surround signal to the rear speakers.

Compatible
Audio/Video
Components
A wide variety of compatible Video Cassette Recorders

If your TV's cabinet has a textured finish, do not use
furniture polish. Because textured finishes are porous,
using furniture polish will mar their appearance. They
can be easily cleaned with a damp, soft cloth.
To clean the screen, you can wipe it with a damp soft
cloth. (A very diluted, mild soap can be used on the
screen if it is extremely dirty.) You can also use a nonabrasive glass cleaner like Windex ®or Glass Plus ® with a
soft cloth. Be sure to apply cleaner to a cloth. Do not put
cleaner directly on the screen.
Do not use strong cleaners, polishes, or chemicaUytreated cloths to clean the screen or cabinet.
Never place drinks or vases with water on top of your TV.

Troubles sometimes are caused by simple "faults" that you can
easily correct without the help of a service technician by first
checking a few basic remedies.
Before you call or take your unit to an Authorized RCA 'IV
Servicenter, look below for the type of trouble you are
experiencing. Then perform the simple checks and adjustments
listed for that trouble.
If your unit is still in warranty, these checks and adjustments
could save you time and the cost of an unneeded trip to the
servicer. They also could save you the cost of a diagnosis not
covered by your warranty.
If your unit is out of warranty, these checks and adjustments
could save you the cost of an unneeded diagnosis. If service
should be necessary, the warranty explains how to get it.

of our
natural heritage and to a healthy and safe way of life for current and future
generations. This is a global effort which encompasses every THOMSON facility
throughout the world.
We believe that clean air, clean water, a protected earth, and healthy people are not

to
protect these precious assets and provides a challenging vision and guideline for

and
renders it non-hazardous.
Thomson

pounds of non-hazardous
material
annually that otherwise would have
been treated
as trash,
an overall
recovery rate of 50%.

pounds of broken television
picture
tube glass annually
through
both
internal and external reclaim processes,
THE WATER
Thomson has replaced solvent-based
paints at many locations resulting in an
80% reduction in toxic air emissions for
equivalent material used.
Thomson
recovers
over 2 million
pounds of fine glass particles from
process water each year and recycles
them back into its glass furnaces.
Thomson has eliminated
the use of
ozone-depleting
substances
at
television
manufacturing
facilities
around the world.
Thomson's state-of-the-art waste water
treatment
plants filter out over 26
million pounds of solids from process
water each year.
Thomson collects and returns over 1.5
million pounds of glass and furnace
dust to the glass making process
annually.
Thomson's U.S. glass factory recycles
2,500 gallons of water per minute and
cleans 2.6 million gallons of water per
day.
Thomson
has launched
worldwide
energy

which
contribute
to efforts to reduce air
emissions from electrical generating
facilities.
Thomson is researching new processes
and is developing new manufacturing
equipment and technologies to further
reduce large volume water use.
Thomson has also increased its usage of recycled materials for packaging of our products. For example, in the U.S. and
Mexico our television plants use recycled content in our television cartons and instruction booklets. The inks used for the print
on cartons and instruction booklets are soy based. For a free brochure regarding Thomson's Environmental Health and Safety
