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
To guard against injury, the following basic safety precautions
should be observed in the installation, use, and servicing of the set.
Use
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

Grounding or Polarization
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 should still fail 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
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 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.
2
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.
Attachments
Do not use attachments not recommended by the
manufacturer, as they may cause hazards.
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.
Installation
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. Install the set on a stable, level surface.
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.
Accessories
Do not place the set on an unstable cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, 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. Any mounting of the
product should follow the manufacturer’s
instructions, and should use a mounting
accessory recommended by the manufacturer. 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.
Disconnect all cables and cords from the set before attempting to
move the set.
Do not allow children or pets to climb up onto, or push against, the
set. The set may fall, causing serious injury.
HS420.book Page 3 Tuesday, March 30, 2004 10:36 AM
Ventilation
Lightning
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.
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.

Introducing the FD Trinitron Wega
Overview
This chapter describes the contents of the package in which the TV is
shipped and provides an overview of the features of your Wega TV.
Presenting the FD Trinitron Wega
The FD Trinitron Wega (pronounced VAY-GAH) is characterized by
outstanding contrast, uncompromising accuracy, and corner-tocorner detail.
You will recognize the superiority of Wega technology almost
immediately. The first thing you will probably 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.
Package Contents
Along with your new Trinitron TV, the packing box contains a
remote control and two AA (R6) batteries. These items are all you
need to set up and use the TV.
Features
Some of the features that you will enjoy with your new TV include:
❑
DRC® (Digital Reality Creation) Multifunction: Unlike
conventional line doublers, the DRC Multifunction feature
replaces the signal’s NTSC waveform with the HD equivalent,
while doubling the number of vertical and horizontal lines. This
results in four times the density for quality sources, such as DVD,
satellite, and digital camcorders. The Video Menu allows you to
select interlaced, progressive, or CineMotion™ output.
❑
Screen Mode: Enables you to resize the picture, depending on
the signal source.
16:9 Enhancement KV-27/32/36HS420 Only : Vertical Compression
technology that maximizes picture resolution when playing
“anamorphic” or “enhanced for widescreen” sources, including
many DVDs.
❑
7
❑
Favorite Channels: Allows you to set up and select from eight of
your favorite channels.
❑
ClearEdge VM™ Velocity Modulation: Sharpens picture
definition by enhancing vertical lines.
❑
Steady Sound®: Equalizes volume levels so there is consistent
output between programs and commercials.
❑
Component Video Inputs: Offers the best video quality for DVD
(480p, 480i), and digital set-top box (HD1080i, 720p) connections.
❑
CineMotion™: Reverse 3-2 pulldown processing provides
optimal picture quality for film-based sources (media originally
shot in 24 frames-per-second format).
❑
HD Detailer™: Wideband video amplifier has a high bandwidth
frequency rating, which allows it to send more video information
to the screen, resulting in finer picture quality, especially for HD
sources.
❑
Parental Control: V-Chip technology allows parents to block
unsuitable programming from younger viewers.
❑
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface): Provides an
uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface between this TV
and any HDMI-equipped audio/video component, such as a settop box, DVD player, and A/V receiver. HDMI supports
enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital
audio.

Good Video Performance
If the optional equipment you are connecting has an S VIDEO
jack (shown at left), you can use an S VIDEO cable for
improved picture quality (compared to an A/V cable).
Because S VIDEO carries only the video signal, you also need
to connect audio cables for sound, as shown below.

A signaling method that uses continuous changes in the amplitude or frequency of an
electronic transmission to convey information.
Refers to the ratio between the width and height of the screen. KV-27/32/36HS420 models

digital television (DTV)
Component video is sent through three cables: two color shade (chrominance) signals and one
brightness (luminance) signal. Component video achieves greater color accuracy than
composite video or S VIDEO by splitting chrominance into two separate portions.
Composite video is sent through a single cable. Composite video combines the color shade
(chrominance) and brightness (luminance) information into one video signal.
A process that demagnetizes the metal components in the TV monitor, which eliminates
image distortion that can result from magnetic charges acquired by the TV’s components.
Your TV degausses automatically when it is turned on.
A new technology for transmitting and receiving broadcast television signals. DTV provides
clearer resolution and improved sound quality over analog television.
Provides an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface between this TV and any HDMIequipped audio/video component, such as a set-top box, DVD player, and A/V receiver. HDMI
supports enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio.

S VIDEO
S VIDEO requires a single cable, which carries the brightness (luminance) and color

composite video, which carries the signals together.
VHF/UHF
VHF (Very High Frequency) is the part of the frequency spectrum from 30 to 300 megahertz.
UHF (Ultra High Frequency) is the part of the frequency spectrum from 300 to 3,000
megahertz.
480i
Provides 480 lines of resolution. Displays images using interlaced scanning, which first
transmits all the odd lines on the TV screen and then the even lines.
480p
Provides 480 lines of resolution. Displays images using progressive scanning, which transmits
each line from top to bottom.
720p
Provides 720 lines of resolution. Displays images using progressive scanning, which transmits
each line from top to bottom.
1080i
Provides 1080 lines of resolution. Displays images using interlaced scanning, which first
transmits all the odd lines on the TV screen and then the even lines. 1080i is one of the
