INFORMATION
This equipment generates and uses radio frequency energy
and if not installed and used properly, that is, in strict
accordance with the manufacturers instructions, may cause
interference to radio and television reception. It has been
type tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B
computing device in accordance with the specifications in
Subpart J of Part 15 of FCC Rules, which are designed to
provide reasonable protection against such interference in a
residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause interference to radio or televition
reception, which can be determined by tuming the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to ty to
comect the interference by one or more of the following
measures:
Reorient the receiving antenna
Relocate the equipment with respect to the receiver
Move the equipment away from the receiver
Plug the equipment into a different outlet so that
equipment and receiver are on different branch circuits.
If necessary, the user should consult the dealer or an
experienced radioftelevision technician for additional
suggestions. The user may find the following booklet
prepared by the Federal Communications Commission
helpful:
“How to Identify and Resolve Radio-TV Interference
Problems”. This booklet is available from the U.S.

Introduction
This manual covers two models, KPR-46CX25 and KPR-46EX25. The difference between them are only the design of the
cabinet. All the functions are exactly same.
We use model KPR-46CX25 for the illustrations in this manual.

Features
e Multiband VHF/UHF/CATYV tuner receives up to 125
cable channels for total of 181 possible off-air and cable
channels.
¢ Built-in MTS (Multichannel TV Sound) decoder
enables reception of stereo programs and Second Audio
Program (SAP) broadcasts.
e S VIDEO INPUT jack which is connected to the S video
output jack on the VCR allows superior pictures from the
VCR to be displayed on the screen.
e Built-in video and L/R audio line outputs provide the
selected output from the TV tuner or any of the
equipment connected to the audio/video line inputs.
e On-screen displays for easy reference to operating
modes and adjustments.
And other features for a high quality picture ...
e New Dynamic picture™ system adjusts picture contrast
automatically to produce more detail in both bright and
dark areas of every scene.
e Colorpure Filter" produces fine picture detail without
color spill or color noise.
® VM (Velocity Modulation) circuit produces clean and
sharp black and white contrasts.
e Dynamic Focus™ circuit automatically focuses the
scanning electron beam for enhanced sharpness over
the entire picture, especially in the corners.
¢ Liquid cooled optically coupled picture tubes with new
coolant formulation and pressure release diaphragm for
generating super-bright images without heat build-up.
o Shading compensation circuit assures proper color
balance across the entire screen.
e High voltage regulator maintains consistent image size
and prevents “zooming” in and out of focus during
sudden scene changes from dark to light.
e Hybrid lenses: a multi-element combination of top-
quality coated glass lenses and spherical acrylic lenses
for the best light-transiting and focusing characteristics of
both materials.
o Multi-layer lens coating increases brightness and
improves contrast ratio by reflecting light beams forward
again and again.
o Improved blue phosphor helps maintain long-lasting
pure, clean whites.
¢ Improved green phosphor minimizes "burn-in" effect of
still images on your VideoScope screen, for up to double
the long-term luminescence of your system.
The supplied Remote Commander provides you with
many other convenient features.
e The programmable Remote Commander allows you to
operate video equipment made by Sony or other
manufacturers.
e Picture-in-picture feature lets you watch more than one
channel at once. TV channel or a video source can be
displayed in a box inset into the corner of the main
screen.
e Sound Retrieval System (SRS®)* enhances the natural
sound of a stereo source. (lt is also effective for monaural
source.)
¢ Sleep timer automatically turns off the projector after
approximately one hour.
* Automatic programming to preset all receivable
channels instantly.
e ANT/AUX button permits one-touch selection of pay
cable TV when a converter is connected.
* Sound Retrieval System (SRS®) reproduces the
ambience and dynamics of the original live performance
so that you can enjoy the sound as if you are at the
concert hall or in the recording studio. SRS enables you
to enjoy the optimum sound from anywhere in the room.
(@) SOUND RETRIEVAL SYSTEM
The (®) Sound Retrieval System is manufactured by Sony
Corporation under license from the Hughes Aircraft
Company, a subsidiary of GM Hughes Electronics. it is
covered by U.S. Patent No.4, 748, 669. Other U.S. and
foreign patents pending.

Precautions
e Operate the unit only on 120 V AC.
e Should any liquid or solid object fall into the cabinet,
unplug the unit and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
e Unplug the unit from the wall outlet if it is not going to be
used for several days or more. To disconnect the cord,
pull it out by the plug. Never puil the cord itself.
| Installation |
e To prevent internal heat build-up, do not block the
ventilation openings.
* Do not install the unit in a hot or humid place or in a place
subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust or mechanical
vibration.
¢ Avoid operating the unit at temperatures below 5°C
(41°F).
e After the unit has been transported from a cold location
directly to a warm location, or if the room temperature
has changed suddenly, pictures may be blurred or show
poor color over portions of the picture. This is because
moisture has condensed on the mirrors or lenses inside
the projector. Wait until the moisture evaporates.
¢ Avoid placing the unit on a slanting or uneven fioor.
I Mumination |
To obtain a clear picture, the screen should not be exposed
to illumination or sunlight directly from the front.
Spot lighting directed down from the ceiling is
recommended.

lt is desirable to install the projector in a room whose floors
and walls are not of light-reflecting material.
If these are of reflecting material, it would be desirable to
change to a dark carpet or wall paper.
* Save the original shipping carton and packing material;
they will come in handy if you ever have to ship your unit.
For maximum protection, repack your unit as it was
originally packed at the factory.
® To keep the cabinet looking brand-new, periodically clean
it with a soft cloth. Stubborn stains may be removed with
a cloth slightly dampened with a mild detergent solution.
Never use strong solvents such as thinner or benzine, or
abrasive cleansers since these will damage the cabinet.
As a safety precaution, unplug the unit before cleaning it.
* To remove dust from the front of the screen, unplug the
unit and wipe it gently with a soft cloth slightly dampened
with water or a mild detergent solution, using vertical
strokes only. Then wipe it again with a dry, soft cloth.
Never use solvents or thinners for cleaning purposes.
e If the picture becomes darkened after the unit has been
in use for a long period of time, cleaning the inside of the
unit may be required. Consult qualified service personnel
for this.
* Do not keep the still picture displayed. It may cause a
phosphor mark on the screen.

jacks as well.
About S Video Input
Video input and output signals may be separated inito Y
(luminance or brightness) and C (chroma or color) signals.
Usually these two signals are combined in a VCR and sent
as one signal to a projector. Separation of the Y and C
signals prevents them from interfering with one another,
thereby improving picture (especially in color) quality.
This unit is equipped with an S video input jack through
which these separated signals can be input directly.
