Inserting the Batteries in the Remote Control
You must insert or replace the batteries in the remote control when
you:
◆ Purchase the television
◆ Find that the remote control is no longer operating
correctly
1
Remove the cover on the rear of the remote control by pressing the symbol
downwards and then pulling firmly to remove it.
2
Insert two R03, UM4, “AAA” 1.5V or equivalent batteries taking care to
respect the polarities:
◆ + on the battery against + on the remote control
◆ - on the battery against - on the remote control
3
Replace the cover by aligning it with the base of the remote control and
pressing it back into place.
➢
Do not mix battery types, i.e. alkaline and monganese.

If you wish to switch the COMBI VISION off completely,
disconnect it from the wall socket or press the Master
Switch. This is particularly recommended when you will
not be using the set for a long period of time and you
have not set the VCR unit to record a programme
automatically.

Automatic Degaussing to Remove Colour Patches
GB
A degaussing coil is mounted around the picture tube so that external degaussing after moving the
receiver is normally unnecessary. If the receiver is moved or placed in a different direction, or, a
coloured patch appears on the screen, the main power switch must be switched to the off position for
120minutes or the power cord must be unplugged for the same interval to allow the automatic degauss
circuits to operate properly.
For safety, the receiver should be switched off from the main power switch when it is unattended.
➢
Magnetic fields can cause your television to malfunction. Degaussing is a process that neutralises
magnetic fields.

Wiring the Mains Power Supply Plug (UK Only)
IMPORTANT NOTICE
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse. The value of the fuse is
indicated on the pin face of the plug and, if it requires replacing, a fuse approved to BSI1362 of the same rating
must be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted if the cover is detachable. If a replacement fuse cover is required,
it must be of the same colour as the pin face of the plug. Replacement covers are available from your dealer.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power
point, you should obtain a suitable safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer for assistance.
However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug.
Do NOT connect the plug to a mains socket as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
BLUE - NEUTRAL
BROWN - LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as
follows: The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or
BLACK. The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured
BROWN or RED.
WARNING:

DO NOT CONNECT EITHER WIRE TO THE EARTH TERMINAL WHICH IS MARKED WITH THE
