• Television and remote-control operation
f you are new to making TV hookups, you may want to read
this section. (The cables and connectors discussed are not supplied with your set. You can buy them at most stores that sell
audio or video products. Or call our Customer Care Center at
1-800-531-0039.)
This publication provides you with examples of basic connections.
See pages 6–17 in the Directions for Use manual for more information on connections, along with connection examples.
A 75-ohm coaxial cable connects signals
from an antenna or a cable TV company
to the antenna jack on the back of the TV.
Coaxial cables use “F” connectors.
A two-way signal splitter enables you to
take a single antenna or cable TV signal
and supply it to two different inputs.

his section shows you how to make a basic TV connection
using a cable TV or antenna signal.
If you have cable TV service, you’ll simply connect the coaxial
cable lead-in from the cable TV company to your TV. If you intend
to connect a VHF/UHF antenna, you may need a 300- to 75-ohm
adapter, which is not supplied with your TV.
NOTE: You should be able to buy optional accessories such as a
VHF/UHF antenna or a 300- to 75-ohm adapter at most stores
that sell electronics. Or you can call our Customer Care Center
at 1-800-531-0039.

Magnetic fields, such as those of external speakers, may cause the picture to distort if the speakers are placed too close to the television. Move
the magnetic field source away from the TV until
there is no picture distortion.
A 300- to 75-ohm twin-lead
adapter accepts the antenna
cables (called twin-lead wires)
from an antenna, allowing you
to connect the antenna signal to

or nonstereo, connections. The connectors of
video cables used to connect component video or
RGB (high-resolution) jacks are often color coded
red, green, and blue. Component video connections provide you with the highest possible color
and picture resolution.
An S-Video cable connects devices such as DVD
players, VCRs, or camcorders to your TV. S-Video
provides better picture performance than regular (composite) video connections.
S-Video cables can be used
only with S-Video-compatible accessory devices.
You must also connect the left and right audio
cables along with S-Video because the S-Video
jack carries only the picture signal, not the sound.
A VGA (DB15) cable
makes a VGA connection to
the HD INPUT-AV 5 jack on
the rear of the TV.
Video and audio cables
with standard RCA
(phono) connectors connect the video and audio
jacks of accessory
devices such as VCRs
and DVD players to the
jacks on the TV.
To simplify making connections, the connectors
are usually color coded. The jacks on your TV are
likewise color coded to match the colors of the
connectors. The coding is as follows: yellow for
video (composite) and red and white for the right
and left audio channels, respectively. Use an audio
cable with a white connector when making mono,

To avoid cabinet warping, cabinet color changes,
and increased chance of set failure, do not place
the TV where temperatures can become excessively
hot—for example, in direct sunlight or near a
heating appliance.
Connect the Cable TV or antenna signal to the
ANTENNA IN 75Ω jack on the rear of the TV.
NOTE: If you are using an antenna with a round coaxial
cable (75Ω), then you are ready to connect to the back of
the TV. If your antenna has a flat, twin-lead wire (300Ω),
you must first attach the antenna wires on a 300- to 75ohm adapter. Then push the round end of the adapter onto
the ANTENNA IN 75Ω jack on the rear of the TV.

FEATURES
Alternate Channel (A/CH) button allows you to switch back and
forth between the currently viewed channel and the previously
viewed channel.
Automatic Phosphor Aging Compensation (APAC) Because
both analog sources (cable TV and DVD) and digital sources (HD
and progressive scan DVD) have different aspect ratios (4:3, 16:9,
21:9, etc.) the picture on a digital television may have black bars
on the sides or top and bottom. Once black bars are detected in
either the 4:3 or 16:9 viewing mode, APAC automatically shifts the
television picture, pixel-by-pixel, just enough to blur image retention. Because APAC works in both the analog and digital modes,
you have excellent protection.
Audio/video jacks allow direct connections with VCRs and other
accessories for quality TV picture and sound playback. Component
video input jacks are provided for high-fidelity color and picture
resolution when using digital video source material, such as a
DVD.
Audio Volume Leveler (AVL) control keeps the TV’s sound at an
even level. Peaks and valleys that occur during program changes or
commercial breaks are reduced, making for a more consistent,
comfortable sound.
AutoChron™ automatically sets the right time of day and maintains it with digital precision through brownouts, power failures,
and even Daylight Savings Time adjustments.
AutoLock™ protects young children from objectionable programming with V-chip technology.
Automatic Format automatically detects the incoming signal’s
format and adjusts it to fill the screen. Also, your remote control
has a Format button that allows you to select the picture format
you want to see.
Smart Picture™ allows you to push a button and adapt your TV’s
picture to various types of programs, such as sports, movies, and
multimedia (games).
Smart Sound™ allows you to select from three factory-set controls and a personal control that you set according to your own
preferences through the onscreen Sound submenu. The three factory-set controls—Voice, Music, and Theatre—enable you to tailor
the TV sound to enhance the particular programming you are
watching.
Channel Edit allows you to add or remove channels from the list
of channels stored in the TV’s memory. Channel Edit makes it
easy to limit or expand the number of channels that are available to
you when you press the CH +/– buttons on your remote control.
Closed Captioning allows you to read TV program dialog or
voice conversations as onscreen text.
Smart Contrast helps you sharpen the picture quality by making
the contrast between the dark and bright picture areas more noticeable as the image on screen changes.
Smart Scan gives you a choice between two different picturescanning techniques—progressive and interlaced. Progressive scan
doubles the number of visible picture lines per field by displaying
all picture frame lines at once, eliminating line flicker. The interlaced mode provides for a double vertical display (interlaced) of
progressive scan, which reduces annoying motion artifacts. The
Interlaced mode also helps smooth out jagged lines sometimes
seen on curved and angled surfaces.
High-definition component video inputs allow you to connect
High-definition signals to the TV (HD INPUT-AV 4 only). The
result is superb color purity, crisp color detail, and reduced color
noise. Your set provides separate HD inputs for YPbPr/RGB, as
well as horizontal and vertical sync.
Hi-fi stereo system, including a built-in audio amplifier and a twin
speaker system. The system enables you to hear stereo sound or
Second Audio Program (SAP) bilingual broadcasts when they are
available.
Incredible Surround™ enhances stereo programs by making the
sound broader and fuller.
Onscreen menu shows the TV controls and allows you adjust or set
those controls (can be viewed in American English, French, or
Spanish).
Standard broadcast (VHF/UHF) or cable TV (CATV) channel
capability, as well as advanced capability for high-definition video.
Three-line comb filter provides improved chroma/luminance separation to the picture. Offering vertical-edge enhancement and virtually no “dot crawl,” this filter easily supports the demands of DVD
players and other advanced high-resolution video sources.

• Signals connected to the HD INPUT-AV 4
inputs will provide you with the best picture.
Examples of sources for such signals are a
progressive-scan DVD player (480p) or an
HD receiver (1080i or 480p) with YPbPr or
RGB outputs. The 1080i signals will provide you with the best picture possible.
Devices with RGB outputs may or may not
have H and V sync outputs to connect to the
HD INPUT-AV 4 H and V SYNC inputs.
• Among the 480i-compatible inputs
(ANTENNA IN 75Ω, INPUT AV-1, INPUT

shows you one way you can connect a VCR to
your TV.
Refer to the directions-for-use manual for your
VCR for further information on connections.
To make the connections shown in this example,
you will need:
• one coaxial cable (75Ω)
• one cable for a video connection (standard
RCA connector)
• two cables for audio connections (standard
RCA connectors) (only one cable is needed for
a nonstereo VCR).
NOTE: The cables are not supplied with your TV.
You should be able to buy them at most stores
that sell electronics. Or you can call our

bandwidth information than is possible with composite video (labeled VIDEO on your TV’s jack
panel) or S-Video connections.
To make the connections shown in this example,
you will need:
• three cables for video connections (standard
RCA connectors)
• two cables for audio connections (standard

HELPFUL HINTS
• If after connecting your DVD player your
display is filled with wavy lines, it may be
that your DVD player is not set to progressive-scan mode. Some DVD players have an
I/P (interlaced/progressive scan) switch
located on the back or front of the players for
changing from interlaced to progressive-scan
mode. Other DVD players may allow the
mode to be changed by pressing a button on
the DVD player’s remote control or by using
the DVD player’s onscreen menu. If the
interlaced/progressive-scan selection option
is provided only through the DVD onscreen
menu, you will need to connect the DVD
player to another AV input source in addition
to HD INPUT-AV 4 to see the DVD menu.
Select this additional AV source on screen to
see the DVD menu and choose progressivescan mode. You will then be able to see the
DVD picture through the AV4 source.
Turn the DVD on, insert a disc, and
press play to view a DVD on the TV.
• Some DVD players have dedicated progressive-scan output jacks that are labeled as
such and require no switching to provide a
picture through the HD INPUT-AV 4 jacks.
See your DVD player’s directions-for-use
manual for information.
HELPFUL HINT
• The default color-space setting for the
HD INPUT-AV 4 jacks is YPbPr. RGB is
also an option. If the picture’s color looks
grossly incorrect, try changing either the
DVD player’s or TV’s color-space setting.
See the DVD player’s directions-for-use
manual for information on setting its color
space.

UNDERSTANDING AUTOLOCK™
T
he AutoLock™ feature can help parents control what their children watch
on TV. AutoLock™ does this by using the
content advisories sent by broadcasters
or other program providers. After you
program AutoLock™, it can respond to
the content advisories and block programs that contain content that you may
consider objectionable—offensive language, violence, or sexual situations. You
can also use AutoLock™ to block channels that you don’t want your children to
watch.
In this section, you’ll learn how to block
channels and programming that is not
rated, is unrated, or has no rating. You
will also find out how to turn these blocking features on or off. Following on this
page are brief explanations of
AutoLock™ terms and program ratings.
Terms
BLOCKING control—can be thought
of as the “master switch” for
AutoLock™. This control affects the settings you have chosen for blocking programs according to movie ratings or TV
ratings, or for blocking programs that
have no rating or are unrated. When the
BLOCKING control is OFF, the blocking
or censoring of programs is disabled.
When the BLOCKING control is ON,
blocking will occur according to the settings you have chosen.
BLOCK UNRATED control—if set to
ON, blocks all unrated programs.
Unrated programming consists of the
kind of shows that the MPAA (Motion
Picture Association of America) or the
TV broadcasters have chosen not to rate.
NO RATING control—if set to ON,
blocks all programming with no content
advisory data.
Programming that has No Rating is not
encoded with any rating information
from the MPAA or the Parental
Guidelines. Any programming could fall
into this category.
BLOCK CHANNEL control—enables
you to block individual channels that you
don’t want children to see.

TV-Y (All Children)—designed to be appropriate for all children, especially ones ages 2–6.
Programs rated TV-Y are not expected to frighten younger children.
TV-Y7 (Directed to Older Children)—designed for children ages 7 and older. Programs rated
TV-Y7 may be more appropriate for children who have acquired the development skills needed to
distinguish between make-believe and reality. Such programs may include mild fantasy and comic
violence (FV).
TV-G (General Audience)—likely to be considered suitable for children of all ages. Such
programs have little or no violence, no strong language, and little or no sexual dialogue or sexual
situations.
TV-PG (Parental Guidance Suggested)—contain material that parents may find unsuitable for
younger children. This type of programming has one or more of the following: moderate violence
(V), some sexual situations (S), infrequent coarse language (L), or some suggestive dialogue (D).
TV-14 (Parents Strongly Cautioned)—contain material that many parents will find unsuitable
for children under 14 years of age. Such programs have one or more of the following: intense violence (V); intense sexual situations (S); strong, coarse language (L); or intensely suggestive
dialogue (D).
TV-MA (Mature Audience Only)—specifically designed to be viewed by adults and therefore
may be unsuitable for children under 17. Such programs have one or more of the following:
graphic violence (V); explicit sexual situations (S); or crude, indecent language (L).

General Information: Care and Cleaning
CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING Concerning Stationary Images on
the TV Screen:
Do not leave picture border bars or stationary images on screen for extended periods of
time.This can cause uneven picture-tube
aging.
PLACEMENT
OF THE TV
• To avoid cabinet warping, cabinet color changes, and
increased chance of set failure, do not place the TV where
temperatures can become excessively hot; for example, in
direct sunlight or near a heating appliance.
• Be sure to allow a free flow of air to and from the perforated
back cover of the set.
Normal use of the TV should involve the showing of pictures
that contain constantly moving and changing images that fill the
screen. Be careful not to leave nonmoving images on screen for
extended periods of time, or to display the same images on
screen too frequently, because subtle ghost images can be left
on the picture tubes. Avoid showing pictures with border bars or
the same stationary images more than 15 percent of your total
viewing in any one week. Sources of stationary images may be
broadcast channels, cable channels, satellite channels, digital
television boxes, DVD discs, laser discs, video games, CD-i
discs, videotapes, and others. Here are some examples of stationary images (this is not an all-inclusive list; you may
encounter others in your viewing):
• Border bars—solid bars shown when viewing a standard
(4:3) picture and some widescreen movies on your
widescreen (16:9) TV
• DVD menus—listings of DVD disc content
• Video-game images and scoreboards
• Television station logos—present a problem if they are bright
and stationary; moving or low-contrast graphics are less likely to cause uneven aging of the picture tube
• Stock-market tickers—presented at the bottom of the TV
screen
• Shopping channel logos and pricing displays—bright and
shown constantly or repeatedly in the same location on the
TV screen.
CLEANING
• To avoid possible shock hazard, be sure the TV is unplugged
from the electrical outlet before cleaning.
• Regularly dust the TV with a dry, non-scratching duster to
keep the TV clean.
• When cleaning the TV, take care not to scratch or damage the
screen surface. Avoid wearing jewelry or using anything abrasive. Do not use household cleaners. Wipe the front screen
with a clean cloth dampened with water. Use even, easy, vertical strokes when cleaning.
Specially designed screen-cleaning kits are also available.
These kits contain anti-static cleaners and cloths designed to
get into the ridges of the TV screen. Purchase the kits at
stores that sell electronics. Or call our Customer Care Center
at 1-800-531-0039.
• Gently wipe the cabinet surfaces with a clean cloth or sponge
dampened in a solution of cool, clear water and a mild soap
or detergent. Use a clean, dry cloth to dry the wiped surfaces.
• Occasionally vacuum the ventilation holes or slots in the back
cover of the set.
• Never use thinners, insecticide sprays, or other chemicals on
or near the cabinet, as they might cause permanent marring of
the cabinet finish.
All picture tubes age with use, with their light output diminishing over time. But by maintaining normal use—mixing television picture types—you will create conditions in the tubes age
at an even rate. The result will be a TV picture that is evenly
bright over the entire screen.

General Information: Index
GLOSSARY
OF TELEVISION TERMS
Alternate Channel • The feature that allows you to toggle
between the last two channels viewed by pressing the A/CH button on the remote control.
Audio/Video Inputs • Jacks (standard RCA), located on the rear
of the TV, used for the input of audio and video signals. These
jacks are designed for use with VCRs (or other accessories) to
receive higher picture resolution and offer sound-connection
options.
Auto Program • The feature that, when activated, scans for all
available channels from regular antenna or cable signals and
stores only active broadcast stations in the TV’s memory.
Channel Edit • The feature that allows you to add or delete
channels from the list of channels stored in the TV’s memory.
Channel Edit makes it easy to limit or expand the number of
channels that are available to you when you press the CH +/–
buttons on your remote control.
Closed Captioning • The broadcast standard feature that allows
you to read the voice content of television programs on the TV
screen. Designed to help the hearing impaired, Closed
Captioning uses onscreen text boxes to show dialogue and conversations while a TV program is in progress.
Coaxial Cable • A single solid wire normally matched with a
metal plug (F-type) end connector that screws (or pushes) directly onto a 75-ohm input found on the television or VCR.
Comb Filter • TV filter that removes distortion, resulting in a
sharper and purer color display. The comb filter addresses the
annoying cross-color distortion that may occur in TV broadcasts
when, for example, the presenter wears a striped or checked
jacket.
Component Video Inputs • Inputs that allow the separate reception of blue, red, and luminance signals. These inputs provide the
highest possible color and picture resolution in the playback of
digital signal-source material, such as the kind available from
DVD players. Component video inputs allow for improved bandwidth information not possible through composite video or SVideo connections.
Composite Video Input • An input in which all the components
required for displaying the onscreen image are combined in one
signal.
Convergence • The technique used in color TV for bringing the
red, green, and blue color beams together so that they hit the
same part of the picture tube screen at the same time. This
avoids color fringes around images in the picture.
High-definition Television (HDTV) • High-resolution digital
television. HDTV is high-resolution digital television. It has lifelike pictures, and with it films retain their original width,
enhancing the home theater experience.
Incredible Surround™ • False acoustic management of the
audio signal that produces a dramatic expansion of the wall of
sound that surrounds the listener and heightens overall viewing
pleasure.
Interlaced • A picture-scanning technique that improves the
appearance of onscreen motion. It also helps smooth jagged lines
that are sometimes seen on curved and angled surfaces in the
picture.
Menu • An onscreen list of feature controls available for you to
adjust or set.
NTSC • National Television Standards Committee format
devised in the 1940s for TV broadcast analog video signals (525
lines: 30 Hz).
Onscreen Displays (OSD) • The wording or messages generated
by the television (or VCR) to help you with specific feature controls (color adjustment or programming, for example).
Progressive Scan • A picture-scanning technique that doubles
the number of picture lines, eliminating the flicker and providing
a jitter-free picture.
PTV • Projection Television. (Rear- and/or front-projection
design systems are available.)
Remote-control Sensor Window • The window or opening
found on the television control panel through which infrared
remote-control command signals are received.
RGB • Red, green, and blue signal. These are the primary colors
of light that are used to produce a picture in television. By mixing levels or R, G, and B, all colors (chrominance and luminance) are reproduced.
RF • Radio Frequency or modulated signal design used as the
carrier for television broadcasts.
Second Audio Program (SAP) • An additional audio channel
provided for in the Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) broadcast standard. A monaural soundtrack included within the recorded or video signal (usually containing a second language translation for the displayed programming).
Status/Exit Button • Remote-control button that, when pressed,
shows the current channel number, name (if set), time (if set),
and sound setting (stereo, mono, SAP, or mute). Pressing the button twice shows the current AutoLock™ settings. Pressing the
button once when an onscreen display is showing removes the
onscreen display. You can use Status/Exit rather than having to
wait for the displays to “time out,” or automatically disappear
from the screen.
S-Video Input • Signal input that allows direct connection of
high-resolution video sources, such as a satellite receiver, DVD
player, S (Super)-VHS videocassette recorder, or video games.
Provides improved picture resolution, sharpness, and clarity.
480p • Digital picture format with 704 x 480 pixels, sent at 60
complete frames per second. This is the output format of progressive-scan DVD players.
1080i • Digital high-definition picture format with 1920 x 1080
pixels, sent at 60 interlaced frames per second (30 complete frames
per second).
Tint • TV function that allows you to change the general color
balance between cool and warm. Adjust tint according to your
personal preference.
Twin–lead Wire • The more commonly used name for the twostrand, 300-ohm antenna wire used with many indoor and outdoor antenna systems. In many cases, this type of antenna wire
requires an additional adapter (or balun) in order to connect to
the 75-ohm input terminals designed into the more recent TVs
and VCRs.
