This symbol is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated
“dangerous voltage” within the product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient
magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
This symbol is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating
and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the
appliance.
Note to the CATV Installer
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer’s attention to Article 820-40 of
the NEC that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the
cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building as close to the
point of cable entry as practical.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Operate the TV only on 120 V AC.
One blade of the power plug is wider than the other for safety purposes and will fit
into the power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, contact your dealer.
If any liquid or solid object falls into the TV, unplug it and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it further.
CAUTION
When using TV games, computers, and similar products with your TV, keep the brightness
and contrast functions at low settings. If a fixed (non-moving) pattern is left on the screen
for long periods of time at a high brightness or contrast setting, the image can be
permanently imprinted onto the screen. Continuously watching the same channel can cause
the imprint of station logos onto the TV screen. These types of imprints are not covered by
your warranty because they are the results of misuse.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not use this polarized plug with an
extension cord, receptacle, or other outlet unless the blades can be fully
inserted to prevent blade exposure.

suitable outlet installed. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the grounding plug.
User Guide
Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets, extension
cords or convenience receptacles beyond
their capacity, since this can result in fire or
electric shock. Always turn the set off
when it is not to be used. When the set is
left unattended and unused for long
periods of time, unplug it from the wall
outlet as a precaution against the
possibility of an internal malfunction that
could create a fire hazard.
Do not disconnect the antenna or the
power cord during a heavy storm.
Lightning may strike while you are
holding the cable or cord, causing serious
injury. Turn off your TV and wait for the
weather to improve.
Do not place any objects, especially heavy
objects, on top of the set. The object may
fall from the set, causing injury.
Cleaning
Unplug the set from the wall outlet before
cleaning or polishing it. Do not use liquid
cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a cloth
lightly dampened with water for cleaning
the exterior of the set.
If a snapping or popping sound from a TV
set is continuous or frequent while the TV
is operating, unplug the TV and consult
your dealer or service technician. It is
normal for some TV sets to make
occasional snapping or popping sounds,
particularly when being turned on or off.
Object and Liquid Entry
Never push objects of any kind into the set
through the cabinet slots as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short out parts
that could result in a fire or electric shock.
Never spill liquid of any kind on the set.
Installation
Attachments
Water and Moisture
Do not use attachments not recommended
by the manufacturer, as they may cause
hazards.
Do not use power-line operated sets near
water — for example, near a bathtub,
washbowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in
a wet basement, or near a swimming pool,
etc.
Always use two or more people to lift or
move the set. The set is heavy and the
bottom surface is flat. Serious injury can
result from trying to move the set by
yourself alone, or from unsteady handling.

Grounding or Polarization
This set may be equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one
blade wider than other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a
safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the
plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact you electrician to replace your obsolete outlet.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
Antennas
Outdoor Antenna Grounding
If an outdoor antenna is installed, follow the precautions below. An outdoor antenna
system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or
power circuits, or where it can come in contact with such power lines or circuits.
WHEN INSTALLING AN OUTDOOR ANTENNA SYSTEM, EXTREME CARE SHOULD
BE TAKEN TO KEEP FROM CONTACTING SUCH POWER LINES OR CIRCUITS AS
CONTACT WITH THEM IS ALMOST INVARIABLY FATAL.
Be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage
surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code (NEC) in USA
and Section 54 of the Canadian Electrical Code in Canada provides information with respect
to 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.

Service
Damage Requiring Service
Unplug the set from the wall outlet and
refer servicing to qualified service
personnel under the following conditions:
•
When the power cord or plug is
damaged or frayed.
•
•
When the set exhibits a distinct
change in performance — this
indicates a need for service.
Servicing
Do not attempt to service the set yourself
since opening the cabinet may expose you
to dangerous voltage or other hazards.
Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel.
If liquid has been spilled into the
set.
Replacement Parts
•
If the set has been exposed to rain or
water.
•
If the set has been subject to
excessive shock by being dropped,
or the cabinet has been damaged.
•
If the set does not operate normally
when following the operating
instructions. Adjust only those
controls that are specified in the
operating instructions. Improper
adjustment of other controls may
result in damage and will often
require extensive work by a
qualified technician to restore the set
to normal operation.
When replacement parts are required, be
sure the service technician certifies in
writing that he has used replacement parts
specified by the manufacturer that have the
same characteristics as the original parts.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in
fire, electric shock, or other hazards.
Safety Check
Upon completion of any service or repairs
to the set, ask the service technician to
perform routine safety checks (as specified
by the manufacturer) to determine that the
set is in safe operating condition, and to so
certify. When the set reaches the end of its
useful life, improper disposal could result
in a picture tube implosion. Ask a qualified
service technician to dispose of the set.

of your TV. You should see a different picture in your PIP window for
each connected video equipment component. Make sure the
connected equipment is turned on and working when you perform
this test.
6
If the PIP feature does not work properly with the TV or the
connected video equipment component, refer to the Troubleshooting
section on pages 42-43 for possible solutions.
Now use the main CH+/- on the bottom of your remote control to
change the channel in the main window.
Any video equipment you have connected to the AUX input cannot be viewed
in the PIP window.
If you’re viewing all channels through a cable box, the PIP feature will not
work. The cable box only unscrambles one signal at a time, so the window
picture will be the same as the main picture. However, you can watch a cable
channel and another video source. Make sure your DVD, VCR, or satellite
receiver is connected to the VIDEO IN jacks on the back of the TV, not the
AUX input.
