Important Safety Information
Always be careful when using your TV receiver. To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, and other
injuries, keep these safety precautions in mind when installing, using, and
maintaining your machine.
• Read all safety and operating instructions before operating your TV.
• Keep the safety and operating instructions for future reference.
• Heed all warnings on the TV receiver and in the operating instructions.
• Follow all operating and use instructions.
• Unplug the TV receiver from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a damp cloth; do not use liquid or
aerosol cleaners.
• Never add any attachments and/or equipment without approval of the manufacturer. Such additions
can increase the risk of fire, electric shock, or other personal injury.
• Do not use the TV receiver where contact with or immersion in water is a possibility, such as near bath
tubs, sinks, washing machines, swimming pools, etc.
• Do not place the TV on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table
where it can fall. A falling TV can cause serious injury to a child or adult,
and serious damage to the appliance. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod,
bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the TV.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions when mounting the unit, and use a
mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer. Move the TV and
cart with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces can
make the unit and cart unsteady and likely to overturn.
• Provide ventilation for the TV receiver. The unit is designed with slots in
the cabinet for ventilation to protect it from overheating. Do not block these openings with any object,
and do not place the TV receiver on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. Do not place it near a
radiator or heat register. If you place the TV receiver on a rack or bookcase, ensure that there is adequate ventilation and that you’ve followed the manufacturer’s instructions for mounting.
• Operate your TV receiver only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are
not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your appliance dealer or local power
company.
• Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this TV is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug having one blade wider than the other. This plug will fit into the power outlet
only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug
still does not fit, contact your electrician to replace your outlet.
• Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so that they won’t be walked on or
pinched by objects placed on or against them. Pay particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit.
ENG 1
• Unplug the TV from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a lightning
storm or when left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent damage to the
unit due to lightning and power-line surges.
• Avoid overhead power lines. An outside antenna system should not be placed in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits or where it can fall into such power lines or
circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, be extremely careful to keep from touching the
power lines or circuits. Contact with such lines can be fatal.
• Do not overload the wall outlet or extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
• Do not insert anything through the openings in the unit, where they can touch dangerous voltage
points or damage parts. Never spill liquid of any kind on the TV.
• Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the TV, be sure the antenna or cable
system is grounded so as to provide some protection against
voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of
the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No.70-1984, provides information about proper grounding of the mast and
supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an
antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

• Do not attempt to service the TV yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified
service personnel under the following conditions:
- when the power-supply cord or plug is damaged
- if liquid has been spilled on the unit or if objects have fallen into the unit
- if the TV has been exposed to rain or water
- if the TV does not operate normally by following the operating instructions
- if the TV has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged
- when the TV exhibits a distinct change in performance
• If you make adjustments yourself, adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions. Adjusting other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the TV to normal.
• When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician uses replacement parts specified
by the manufacturer or those that have the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in additional damage to the unit.
• Upon completion of any service or repairs to this TV, ask the service technician to
perform safety checks to determine that the TV is in a safe operating condition.

then press the VOL+ button.
▼
Note: These categories consist of
two separate groups: TV-Y and TV-Y7
(young children through age 7), and
TV-G through TV-MA (everybody
else).

The “TV guidelines”
screen will appear.
Press the the CH ▲, CH ▼
buttons to select one of
the six age-based categories:
TV-Y
Young children
TV-Y7
Children 7 and over
-------------------------------------TV-G
General audience
TV-PG Parental guidance
TV-14
Viewers 14 and over
TV-MA Mature audience
The restrictions for these two groups
work independently: If a household
includes very young children as well
as young adults, the TV guidelines
must be set up separately for each age
group. (See next step.)
5
At this point, one of the TV-Ratings is selected.
Press the VOL + button: Depending on your existing setup, a letter “U” or “B” will start blinking.
(U= Unblocked, B= Blocked)
While the “U” or ”B” is blinking, press the CH ▲ or CH ▼ buttons to block or unblock the category.
Press the MENU button once to save the TV guidelines. A TV-Rating will be highlighted, and no letters will blink.
To exit this screen, press the MENU again. To select a different TV-Rating, press the CH ▲ or CH ▼ buttons and
then repeat the process.
Note 1: The TV-Y7, TV-PG, TV-14 and TV-MA have additional options. See the next step to change any of the
following sub-ratings:
FV: Fantasy violence
D: Sexual suggestive dialog
L: Adult language
S: Sexual situation
V: Violence
Note 2: The V-Chip will automatically block certain categories that are “more restrictive.” For example, if you block
“TV-Y” category, then TV-Y7 will automatically be blocked. Similarly, if you block the TV-G category, then all the
categories in the “young adult” group will be blocked (TV-G, TV-PG, TV-14 and TV-MA). The sub-ratings (D, L, S, V)
work together similarly. (See next section.)

Next, while the TV-Rating is selected, repeatedly press the VOL+ button. This will cycle through the available sub-ratings (FV,L, S, D or V).
A blinking letter (“U” or “B”) will be displayed for each sub-rating. While the “U” or “B” is blinking, press
the CH ▲ or CH ▼ buttons to change the sub-rating.
Press MENU once to save the TV guidelines. A TV-Rating will be selected, and no letters will blink. To exit
this screen, press the MENU button again. To select a different TV-Rating, press the CH ▲ or CH ▼ buttons
and then repeat the process.
Note: The V-chip will automatically block certain categories that are “More restrictive”. For example, if you
block “L” sub-rating in TV-PG, then the “L” sub-ratings in TV-14 and TV-MA will automatically be blocked.

Press the MENU button three times to clear all the screens. (Or proceed to the next section, and set up
additional restrictions based on the MPAA codes).
How to Set up Restrictions using the MPAA Ratings: G, PG, PG13, R, NC-17, X
The MPAA rating system uses the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) system, and
its main application is for movies. (Eventually, movie videocassettes will be encoded with
MPAA ratings.) When the V-Chip lock is on, the TV will automatically block any programs
that are coded with objectionable ratings (either MPAA or TV-Ratings).
