About this Manual
Important Safeguards
For your protection, please read these instructions completely, and
keep this manual for future reference.
Carefully observe and comply with all warnings, cautions and
instructions placed on the set or described in the operating
instructions or service manual.
WARNING
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.
To guard against injury, the following basic safety precautions
should be observed in the installation, use and servicing of the set.
Installation
Use
Do not use attachments not recommended by the
manufacturer, as they may cause hazards.
Power Sources
This set should be operated only from the type
of power source indicated on the serial/model
plate. If you are not sure of the type of electrical
power supplied to your home, consult your
dealer or local power company. For those sets
designed to operate from battery power, refer
to the operating instructions.
Grounding or Polarization
Attachments
Water and Moisture
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.
This set is equipped with a polarized AC power cord plug (a plug
having one blade wider than the other), or with a three-wire
grounding type plug (a plug having a third pin for grounding).
Follow the instructions below:
For the set with a polarized AC power cord plug
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 still fails to fit, contact your electrician to have
a suitable outlet installed. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
polarized plug by forcing it in.
Alternate Warning
Accessories
Do not place the set on an unstable cart, stand,
table or shelf. The set may fall, causing serious
injury to a child or an adult and serious damage
to the set. Use only a cart or stand recommended
by the manufacturer for the specific model of TV.
An appliance and cart combination should be
moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force,
and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and
cart combination to overturn.
For the set with a three-wire grounding type AC plug
This plug will only fit into a grounding-type
power outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are
unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact
your electrician to have a suitable outlet installed.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding plug.
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 being
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.
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.
Ventilation
The slots and openings in the cabinet and in the back or bottom are
provided for necessary ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of
the set, and to protect it from overheating, these slots and openings
must never be blocked or covered.
❑
Never cover the slots and openings with a
cloth or other materials.
❑
Never block the slots and openings by
placing the set on a bed, sofa, rug or other
similar surface.
❑
Never place the set in a confined space, such
as a bookcase or built-in cabinet, unless
proper ventilation is provided.
❑
Do not place the set near or over a radiator
or heat register, or where it is exposed to
direct sunlight.
Power-Cord Protection
Service
Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over the
power cord, and do not place the set where the
power cord is subject to wear or abuse.
Damage Requiring Service
Antennas
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.
❑
If liquid has been spilled into
the set.
❑
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 the set exhibits a distinct change in performance, it
indicates a need for service.
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.
Antenna Grounding According to the NEC
Refer to section 54-300 of Canadian Electrical Code for Antenna
Grounding.

Lightning
For added protection for this television receiver during a lightning
storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of
time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna.
This will prevent damage to the receiver due to lightning and
power-line surges.
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.
Replacement Parts
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.

Introducing the FD Trinitron Wega
Presenting the FD Trinitron Wega
The FD Trinitron Wega (pronounced VAY-GAH) is characterized by
outstanding contrast, uncompromising accuracy, and corner-tocorner detail.
You’ll recognize the superiority of Wega technology almost
immediately. The first thing you probably will notice is minimal glare
from the flat picture tube. This flat-screen technology improves
picture detail without distortion, unlike conventional curved screens.
The FD Trinitron delivers outstanding image detail not only at the
screen center, but also at the corners — so you can enjoy a bright,
clear picture from any location in a room.

Introducing the FD Trinitron Wega
Package Contents
Along with your new Trinitron TV, the packing box contains a remote
control, a pair of wireless headphones, and three AA batteries (two
for the remote control, one for the headphones). These items are all
you need to set it up and operate the TV in its basic configuration.
Most peripherals come with the necessary cables to connect them. If
you want to set up special configurations, you may need to buy extra
cables or connectors. It is best to ensure that you have all needed
materials on hand before beginning a special-connection project.
Using the Remote Control
The remote control is the primary mechanism for controlling your TV.
Handle the remote control with care; avoid dropping it, getting it wet,
placing it in direct sunlight, near a heater, or where the humidity is
high.
Inserting Batteries
Insert two size AA (R6) batteries (supplied) by matching the + and –
on the batteries to the diagram inside the battery compartment.
✍ Remove the batteries to avoid damage from possible battery leakage whenever
you anticipate that the remote control will not be used for an extended period.

Basic Cable Box
Connections
Cable Box and Cable
This is the preferred basic cable TV hookup to use if your cable TV
company scrambles some channels, but not all of them (pay channels
vs. regular cable channels), and you need to use a cable box.
With this setup you can:
❑ Use the TV remote control to change channels on your cable box
when the signal is scrambled.
❑ Use the TV remote control to change channels using your TV
when the signal is not scrambled. (Your TV’s tuner provides a
better signal than the cable box.)
❑ Use the PIP feature normally with the CATV input.
❑ Use the PIP feature partially with the cable box. (When you
switch the TV input to AUX — to use the cable box — the
scrambled picture will display only in the main window. If you
turn on the PIP, you will be able to see any of the regular channels
in the PIP window, but you cannot SWAP the pictures between
the main and PIP windows.)
(Continued on the next page)

Installing the TV
(Continued from the previous page)
1 Connect the Cable TV cable to the TV’s VHF/UHF jack.
2 Using a coaxial cable, connect the TV’s TO CONVERTER jack to
the cable box’s IN jack. The TV’s internal converter allows you to
switch between unscrambled signals coming straight into the TV
and scrambled signals coming in through the cable box,
eliminating the need for an external splitter.
3 Using a coaxial cable, connect the cable box’s OUT jack to the
TV’s AUX jack.

To switch between channels from cable box and channels from regular cable
❑ Press the ANT button on the TV remote control. (This is a toggle:
pressing the button once selects the cable box; pressing the button
again selects regular cable.)
To use the cable box
❑ Have your TV tuner set to channel 3 or 4 (as appropriate) and
then use the cable box to switch channels.
To use the TV remote control to switch channels on the cable box
❑ Program the remote control as necessary. (See “Programming the
Remote Control” on page 52.) Then use the remote control to
switch cable box channels.
To use the TV remote control to switch channels on the VCR
❑ Program the remote control as necessary. (By default, the remote
control is set for a Sony VCR; to change to another brand see
“Programming the Remote Control” on page 52.) Then use the
VCR buttons on the remote control to switch channels on the
VCR.
To prevent the accidental switching of TV channels
❑ When using the cable box, you need your TV to stay on a
required channel (usually channel 3 or 4). You can use the TV’s
Channel Fix feature to lock in a specific channel. The Channel Fix
feature is under the Channel menu. For details, see “Using the
Channel Menu” on page 42.

Use this hookup if:
❑ You subscribe to a cable TV system that scrambles or encodes all
signals, requiring a cable box to view all channels, and
❑ You do not intend to hook up any other audio or video
equipment to your TV.
When all channels are routed through your cable box, only one
unscrambled signal is sent to the TV, so you cannot use the PIP
feature. If some of your channels are scrambled, but others are not,
consider using the hookup “Cable Box and Cable” on page 11
instead.
1 Connect the coaxial connector from your cable service to the
cable box’s IN jack.
2 Using a coaxial cable, connect the cable box’s OUT jack to the
TV’s VHF/UHF jack.

Connecting a VCR and Cable
Use this hookup if you subscribe to a cable TV (CATV) system that
does not require a cable box.
1 Connect the CATV cable to the VCR’s IN jack.
2 Using a coaxial cable, connect the VCR’s OUT jack to the TV’s
VHF/UHF jack.
3 Using an A/V cable, connect the VCR’s Audio and Video OUT
jacks to the TV’s Audio and Video IN jacks.
✍ If the VCR you are connecting has an S VIDEO jack, you can use an S VIDEO
cable for improved picture quality (compared to a combination audio/video
cable). Because S VIDEO cables carry only the video signal, you will need audio
cables for sound.

Installing the TV
Connecting a VCR and Cable Box
Use this hookup if:
❑ Your cable TV company scrambles some channels, but not all of
them (pay channels vs. regular cable channels) and you therefore
need to use a cable box, and
❑
You want to use the PIP feature.
With this setup you can:
Use the TV remote control to change cable box channels when the
signal is scrambled.
❑
❑
❑
❑
Use the TV remote control to change TV channels when the
signal is not scrambled. (Your TV’s tuner provides a better signal
than the cable box.)
Use the PIP feature.
Record both regular CATV and scrambled channels.
To connect a cable box and a VCR, you will need:
A small, inexpensive device known as a splitter.
Three coaxial cables.
Either a combination audio/video cable, or an S VIDEO cable
and audio cables.
❑
❑
❑
1 Connect the CATV cable to the single (input) jack of the splitter.
2 Use a coaxial cable to connect one of the two output jacks of the
splitter to the TV’s VHF/UHF jack.
3 Use a coaxial cable to connect the other output jack of the splitter
to the input jack of the cable box.
4 Use a coaxial cable to connect the output jack of the cable box to
the input jack of the VCR.
5 Use the video line (yellow) of a combination audio/video (A/V)
cable to connect the video output jack of the VCR to the video
input jack of the TV.
✍ If the VCR has an S VIDEO jack, you can use an S VIDEO cable to improve
picture quality; replace the yellow video cable of the combination A/V
cable with the S VIDEO cable. You will still need audio cables for sound.
Connect the left (white) and right (red) audio output channels of
the VCR to the respective input channels on the TV.
