SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS - Read before operating equipment
This product was designed and manufactured to meet strict quality and
safety standards. There are, however, some installation and operation
precautions which you should be particularly aware of.
1.
Read Instructions - All the safety and operating instructions should
be read before the appliance is operated.
2. Retain Instructions - The safety and operating instructions should
be retained for future reference.
3. Heed Warnings - All warnings on the appliance and in the operating
instructions should be adhered to.
4. Follow Instructions - All operating and use instructions should be
followed.
5. Water and Moisture - The appliance should not be used near water
- for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub,
in a wet basement or near a swimming pool, etc.
6. Carts and Stands - The appliance should be used only with a cart or
stand that is recommended by the manufacturer.
6A.
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.
6B. Tilt/Stability - All televisions must comply with recommended
international global safety standards for tilt and stability properties
of its cabinet design.
•
Do not compromise these design standards by applying excessive pull force to the front, or top, of the cabinet which could
ultimately overturn the product.
•
Also, do not endanger yourself, or children, by placing electronic equipment/toys on the top of the cabinet. Such items
could unsuspectingly fall from the top of the set and cause
product damage and/or personal injury.
7. Wall or Ceiling Mounting - The appliance should be mounted to a
wall or ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer.
8. Ventilation - The appliance should be situated so that its location or
position does not interfere with its proper ventilation. For example,
the appliance should not be situated on a bed, sofa, rug, or similar
surface that may block the ventilation openings; or, placed in a
built-in installation, such as a bookcase or cabinet that may impede
the flow of air through the ventilation openings.
9. Heat - The appliance should be situated away from heat sources
such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances
(including amplifiers) that produce heat.
10. Power Sources - The appliance should be connected to a power
supply only of the type described in the operating instructions or as
marked on the appliance.
11. Power-Cord Protection - Power supply cords should be routed so
that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed
upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords and
plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from
the appliance.
12. Cleaning - The appliance should be cleaned only as recommended
by the manufacturer.
13. Power Lines - An outdoor antenna should be located away from
power lines.
14. Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna is connected to
the receiver, 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 Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984,
provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mats
and supporting structure grounding of the lead-in wire to an
antenna discharge unit, size of grounding connectors, location of
antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes and
requirements for the grounding electrode. See Fig. below.
15. Non-use Periods - The power cord of the appliance should be
unplugged from the outlet when left unused for a long period of
time.
16. Object and Liquid Entry - Care should be taken so that objects do
not fall and liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through
openings.
17. Damage Requiring Service - The appliance should be serviced by
qualified service personnel when:
A. The power supply cord or the plug has been damaged; or
B. Objects have fallen, or liquid has been spilled into the
appliance; or
C. The appliance has been exposed to rain; or
D. The appliance does not appear to operate normally or exhibits
a marked change in performance; or
E. The appliance has been dropped, or the enclosure damaged.
18. Servicing - The user should not attempt to service the appliance
beyond that described in the operating instructions. All other
servicing should be referred to qualified service personnel.
Note to the CATV system installer: This reminder is provided to call the
CATV system installer's attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that
provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that
the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the
building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.

SMART HELP
Note: In the past the
relationship between a TV
screen’s width to height, or aspect
ratio, has historically been 33%
wider than the picture screen
height (or a 4:3 aspect ratio). The
widescreen format of your TV
screen is nearly 80% greater than
its measure height (which
accounts for a 16:9 aspect ratio).
The reason for the 16:9 aspect
ratio screen is that it allows for the
dramatic and lifelike viewing of
original version movies and
cinemas (similar to the type found
in your local theaters). And the
16:9 aspect ratio widescreen is
also a good visual match for how
our eyes work in a horizontally
oriented field of view and action
plane.

HOW TO USE THE PICTURE-IN-PICTURE (PIP) FEATURE
P
icture-in-Picture (PIP) is the
showing of two pictures on the
TV screen at the same time. (One
main screen picture and one small
inset picture - or PIP). For your
ease and convenience this PTV
has two separate inputs
(ANTenna A and ANTenna B) for
your home’s Antenna and/or
Cable TV system signal.
The ANT A input is primarily for
the TV’s main screen picture.
The ANT B input is provided as a
second, dedicated source option
for the PTV’s PIP “window” and
its feature operations. The signal
connected to the ANT B input can
be either a Split Signal Input (as
described in the section on this
page), or another type of external
signal source (such as a satellite
dish system, additional home
antenna, video accessory, etc.).
See the following steps on how
channels connected to the
ANT(enna) B Input can be shown
and used within the PIP window:
1
Connect your Antenna or
Cable TV signal to the single 75
ohm INPUT plug on a two-way
Signal Splitter (not supplied).
- PIP WINDOW Display signal supplied
primarily through ANT
B Input on rear of TV.
- MAIN SCREEN Display signal supplied
primarily through
ANT A Input on rear
of TV.

CAUTION: A video source (such as a video game, Compact Disc Interactive - CDI, or
TV information channel) which shows a constant non-moving pattern on the TV screen,
can cause picture tube damage. When your TV is continuously used with such a source
the pattern of the non-moving portion of the game (CDI, etc.) could leave an image
permanently on the picture tube. When not in use, turn the video source OFF. Regularly
alternate the use of such video sources with normal TV viewing.
• Check the PTV power cord. Unplug the PTV, wait 1 minute, then reinsert plug into
outlet and push POWER button again.
• Check to be sure outlet is not on a wall switch.
• Check antenna connections on the rear of the PTV. Are they properly secured to the
antenna plug on the PTV?
• Check the CABLE TUNING control for correct position.
• Check Picture Source (A/V Button) for correct position ANT A or B; AUX 1/2/3
VIDEO; AUX 1/2 Y PB PR; etc. position without a signal source will result in a blank
screen.
• Check the CLOSED CAPTIONS control. Some TEXT modes could block the screen.
• Check the VOLUME and MUTE buttons on the TV and remote.
• Check the TV SPEAKER NORMAL/OFF sound control for the correct position.
• If attempting auxiliary equipment hook-ups, check audio jack connections and that the
auxiliary equipment is on and in the proper operating modes.
• Check AMP Switch on rear of TV. Place in INT(ernal) position for normal TV sound.
EXT(ernal) for optional Dolby ProLogic Surround Sound connections using the PTV’s
speakers as Center channel.
• Check Device Selection button (Pronto remote touchscreen) for correct selected
category product. HDR PTV for Widescreen PTV use and operation. Refer to the
separate Pronto Remote Control Owner’s Manual for complete details.
• Check batteries. Replace with AA Heavy Duty (Zinc Chloride) or Alkaline batteries
if necessary. Note the correct battery placement within the battery compartment.
• Clean the remote and the remote sensor window on the PTV.
• Repeat channel selection.
• Add desired channel numbers (ADD/DELETE CHANNELS control) into TV memory.
• Check CABLE TUNING control for correct position.
This TV is equipped with protective circuitry that shuts the TV off in case of moderate power surges. Should this occur turn the
TV back on by pressing the POWER button once or twice, or unplug and then replug the power cord at the AC outlet.
This feature is NOT designed to prevent damage due to high power surges such as those caused by lightning, which is not covered
by your warranty.
Cleaning and Care
• To avoid possible shock hazard be sure the TV is unplugged from the electrical outlet before cleaning.
• When cleaning the TV screen 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 which contain anti-static cleaners and cloths designed to get
into the ridges of the TV screen. If interested, ask your dealer about an optional Projection TV Screen Cleaning Kit or
call our toll-free Accessory Parts ordering number 1-800-851-8885.
• 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 cabinet back.
• Never use thinners, insecticide sprays, or other chemicals on or near the cabinet, as they might cause permanent marring
of the cabinet finish.

way the TV “remembers’’ only the locally available or
desired channel numbers and skips over any unwanted
channel numbers.
Remote Sensor Window * A window or opening found
on the TV control panel through which infrared remote
control command signals are received.
Audio/Video Inputs * Located on the rear of the TV
these connectors (RCA phono type plug) are used for
the input of audio and video signals. Designed for use
with VCRs (or other accessories) in order to receive
higher picture resolution and offer sound connection
options.
Coaxial Cable * A single solid antenna 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.
Display * An on screen message or graphics that help
the user operate and adjust TV feature controls. See On
Screen Displays (OSD).
RGB * Red, Green, Blue color component inputs used
for connection purposes with personal computers (PCs)

as the carrier for television broadcasts.
Second Audio Program (SAP) * Another or 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.)
HDTV * High Definition Television which offers
approximately twice the vertical/horizontal resolution of
NTSC video, and sound quality approaching that of
compact disc. (Usually taken to mean a picture of 1920
x 1080 pixels in a 16:9 aspect ratio.)
Identify* Method by which a remote control searches
and finds an operating code for another product (such as
a VCR or Cable Converter). Once the code has been
"identified" then the TV remote can operate and send
commands to the other product.
LED * Light Emitting Diode or indicator.
Menu * An on-screen listing of feature controls shown
on the TV screen that are made available for user
adjustments.
Multichannel Television Sound (MTS) * The
broadcast standard that allows for stereo sound to be
transmitted with the TV picture.
NTSC * National Television Standards Committee

specific feature controls (color adjustment,
programming, etc.).
Picture -In-Picture (PIP) * Term used when two
pictures are shown on the TV screen at the same time.
The smaller PIP picture is supplied by a VCR (or other
tuner/video playback source). The PIP picture can also
be moved and swapped with the TV's main screen
picture.
Status * Allows the user to quickly confirm what
channel number is currently being viewed. Status can
also be used to clear the TV of on-screen displays or
information (rather than waiting for the displays to
“time out” or automatically disappear from the screen).
SVGA * Super Video Graphics Array
S-Video Input * Allows direct connection of highresolution video sources, such as a Super VHS
videocassette recorder, Laser Disc player, etc. Provides
improved picture resolution, sharpness, and clarity.
Twin Lead Wire * The more commonly used name for
the two strand 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
