CABLE TV CONNECTIONS
This TV/VCR has an extended tuning range and can tune most cable channels without using a Cable TV converter box.
Some cable companies offer “premium pay channels” in which the signal is scrambled. Descrambling these signals for
normal viewing requires the use of a descrambler device which is generally provided by the cable company.
FOR SUBSCRIBERS TO BASIC CABLE TV SERVICE
For basic cable service not requiring a converter/descrambler box,
connect the CATV 75 ohm coaxial cable directly to the antenna jack
on the back of the TV/VCR.

FOR SUBSCRIBERS TO SCRAMBLED CABLE TV SERVICE
If you subscribe to a cable TV service which requires the use of a converter/descrambler box, connect the incoming
75 ohm coaxial cable to the converter/descrambler box. Using another 75 ohm coaxial cable, connect the output jack
of the converter/descrambler box to the antenna jack on the TV/VCR. Follow the connections shown below. Set the
TV/VCR to the output channel of the converter/descrambler box (usually channel 3 or 4) and use the converter/
descrambler box to select channels.

FOR SUBSCRIBERS TO UNSCRAMBLED BASIC CABLE TV SERVICE WITH
SCRAMBLED PREMIUM CHANNELS
If you subscribe to a cable TV service in which basic channels are unscrambled and premium channels require the
use of a converter/descrambler box, you may wish to use a signal splitter and an A/B switch box (available from the
Cable company or an electronics supply store). Follow the connections shown below. With the switch in the “B”
position, you can directly tune any nonscrambled channels on your TV/VCR. With the switch in the “A” position, tune
your TV/VCR to the output of the converter/descrambler box (usually channel 3 or 4) and use the converter/
descrambler box to tune scrambled channels.

WHAT IS CLOSED CAPTIONING?
This television has the capability to decode and display
Closed Captioned television programs. Closed
Captioning will display text on the screen for hearing
impaired viewers or it will translate and display text in
another language.
CLOSED CAPTIONING WITH A VCR
Closed Captioned programs can be recorded and played
back on a VCR with the Closed Captioned text intact.
The Closed Captioned text will disappear during Cue
(Fast Forward Search), Review (Rewind Search) and
Pause Modes or if the VCR tracking is not adjusted
properly.
TO VIEW CLOSED CAPTIONS
Press the TV/CAP/TEXT button on the remote control to
switch between normal TV and the two Closed Caption
Modes (Captions and Full Screen Text).
Captions:This Closed Caption Mode will display text
on the screen in English or another language (depending on the setting of the Closed Captions CH. Channel 1
or Channel 2).
Generally, Closed Captions in English are transmitted
on Captions Channel 1 and Closed Captions in other
languages are transmitted on Captions Channel 2.
Text: The Text Closed Caption Mode will usually fill the
screen with a programming schedule or other information.
After selecting a Closed Caption Mode, it will stay in
effect until it is changed, even if the channel is changed.
If the Captions signal is lost due to a commercial or a
break in the signal, the Captions will reappear when the
signal is received again.
If the channels are changed, the Captions will be delayed
approximately 10 seconds.
The Captions will appear in places on the screen where
they will least interfere with the picture, usually on the
bottom of the screen. News programs will usually show
three-line Closed Captions which scroll onto the screen.
Most other shows provide two or three lined Captions
placed near the character who is speaking so the viewer
can follow the dialogue.
Words in italics or underlined describe titles, words in
foreign languages or words requiring emphasis. Words
that are sung usually appear enclosed by musical notes.
For television programs broadcasting with Closed Captions, look in your TV guide for the Closed Captions
symbol (CC).
• When selecting Closed Captions, the captioning will be delayed approximately 10 seconds.
• If no caption signal is received, no captions will appear, but the television will remain in the Caption Mode.
• Misspellings or unusual characters may occasionally appear during Closed Captioning. This is normal with
Closed Captioning, especially with live programs. This is because during live programs, captions are also
entered live. These transmissions do not allow time for editing.
• When the on-screen indicator appears during volume adjustment operation, etc., Closed Caption text will not
be displayed.
• Some cable systems and copy protection systems may interfere with the Closed Captioned signal.
• If using an indoor antenna or if TV reception is very poor, the Closed Caption Decoder may not appear or
may appear with strange characters or misspelled words. In this case, adjust the antenna for better reception
or use an outdoor antenna.

RECEPTION DISTURBANCES
Most types of television interference can be remedied by adjusting the height and position of the VHF/UHF
antenna. Outdoor antennas are recommended for best results. The most common types of television interference are shown below. If one of these symptoms appear when the TV/VCR is connected to a Cable TV system,
the disturbance may be caused by the local Cable TV company broadcast.
IGNITION
Black spots or horizontal streaks may appear, the picture may flutter or
drift. Usually caused by interference from automobile ignition systems,
neon lamps or AC powered tools and appliances such as drills or hair
dryers.
GHOSTS
Ghosts are caused by the television signal following two paths. One is the
direct path and the other is reflected by tall buildings, hills or other large
objects. Changing the direction or position of the antenna may improve the
reception.
SNOW
If the TV/VCR is located far from the TV station, in a fringe reception
area where the signal is weak, small dots may appear in the picture.
If the signal is extremely weak, the installation of a larger external
antenna may be necessary.
RADIO FREQUENCY INTERFERENCE (RFI)
Caused by two-way radios, this type of interference produces moving
ripples or diagonal streaks in the picture. Some cases may cause a loss of
contrast in the picture. Changing the direction and position of the antenna
or installing an RFI filter may improve the picture.
PICTURE SIZE VARIATION
A slight picture size variation is normal when you adjust the CONTRAST or
BRIGHTNESS settings.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
To prevent fire or shock hazard, disconnect the TV/VCR from the AC power source before cleaning.
The finish on the cabinet may be cleaned with mild soap and a soft, damp cloth and cared for as other furniture. Use
caution when cleaning or wiping the plastic parts.

VIDEO HEAD CLEANING
VIDEO HEAD CLOGGING
The video heads are the means b y whic h the TV/VCR reads the picture fr om the tape during pla ybac k. In the unlikel y
event that the heads become dir ty enough to be c log ged, no picture will be pla yed bac k. This can easil y be deter mined if , during pla ybac k of a kno wn good tape , there is good sound, but no picture (picture is e xtremel y sno wy). If
this is the case , use a high quality head c leaning system or ha ve them c leaned pr ofessionall y.
Good Picture
Snowy Picture
VIDEO HEAD CLEANING
Video head cleaning is needed when the playback picture becomes unclear. This signifies that the heads are getting
dirty and can occur when playing poor quality or damaged tapes. If the heads require cleaning, use a equivalent high
quality chemical non-abrasive (wet) head cleaning tape or have them cleaned professionally. If playing a head cleaning
tape in the VCR once does not improve the picture, play it several times before requesting service.
NOTE:
•
•
•
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN THE VIDEO HEADS OR SERVICE THE UNIT BY REMOVING THE REAR
COVER.
Video heads ma y eventuall y wear out and should be replaced when the y fail to pr oduce c lear pictures.
To help pre vent video head c log ging, use onl y good quality VHS tapes. Discar d worn out tapes.
