Welcome to the SHARP Family. We are pleased that you are now the owner of a SHARP Color Television
– built for outstanding quality, reliability and performance.
Every SHARP Color Television set is tuned and adjusted for proper color and sound, and has passed
through the most stringent quality control tests at the factory. We have prepared this OPERATION MANUAL
so that you may adjust the picture and color to your personal viewing preference.
We sincerely hope that you receive the greatest satisfaction and enjoyment from your new SHARP Color
Television set for years to come.
Please read these instructions carefully, and keep them handy for your future reference.
IMPORTANT
To aid reporting in case of loss or theft, please record the TV’s
model and serial numbers in the space provided. The numbers
are located at the rear of the TV.

Important Information
There are two important reasons for prompt warranty registration of your new SHARP television set,
using the REGISTRATION CARD packed in with the set.
FIRST – WARRANTY
This is to assure that you will immediately receive the full consumer benefit of the parts, service and labor
warranty applicable to your purchase.
SECOND – CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY ACT
To assure that you will promptly receive any safety notification on inspection, modification or recall that
SHARP may be required to give under the 1972 Consumer Product Safety Act. PLEASE READ
CAREFULLY THE IMPORTANT “LIMITED WARRANTY” CLAUSE ON THE LAST PAGE.
WHAT IS ENERGY STAR®
TVs and VCRs use energy both when they are on and when they are off. Americans spend more than
$1 billion a year on energy consumed by TVs and VCRs when they are not in use. The new ENERGY
STAR® models will reduce that energy “leakage” by up to 75 percent. Ultimately, this will mean more than
$500 million a year in energy savings for consumers.
The energy savings will help reduce the burning of fossil fuels and the related carbon dioxide pollution
that contributes to global warming. If every American family replaced their TVs and VCRs with ENERGY
STAR® models, it would reduce carbon dioxide emissions by five million tons every year — equivalent to
eliminating the pollution from more than one million cars.
By using ENERGY STAR® products, you will save money on your electric bills and use less energy. That
makes good economic sense and it’s good for our environment.

Important Safeguards (Continued)
14. If an outside antenna is connected to the television equipment, 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 Electrical Code provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and
supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements
for the grounding electrode.

15. For added protection for this television equipment 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 equipment due to lightning and power-line surges.
16. An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric
light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside
antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as
contact with them might be fatal.
17. Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can result in fire or electric shock.
18. Never push objects of any kind into this television equipment through 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 television equipment.
19. Do not attempt to service this television equipment yourself as opening or removing covers may
expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

Before Operating Your Television
Location
• For normal operation, your TV should be located in an area of the room where cool adequate ventilation
is provided. Do not place the back of the television set in a place where free airflow will be restricted.
• Any magnetic force may disturb the color picture. Make sure that magnets, electric clocks, toys using
magnets or any other magnetic substance, such as iron are kept well away from this TV set.
Power
Your TV operates on 120 Volts, 60 Hertz (normal household current) and has a polarized plug. If you
are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. Should it fail to fit, contact an
electrician. Do not defeat the safety feature of the polarized plug.
NOTE:
• If the set will not be used for a long period, such as during a vacation, unplug the set from the wall
outlet to economize power. (If the TV set is plugged in, a slight current still flows, even with the
POWER BUTTON in the OFF position.)
• Lines and other noise may appear in TV broadcast images when an FM tuner or radio is located near
the TV and both radio and TV broadcasts are being received. Should such noise appear, turn off
either the TV or the radio.
• If you are listening to an AM broadcast, turn the TV off. AM broadcast signals may not be received
due to the interference of the TV.
L Before using the television, prepare the Remote Control
To use the remote control, insert batteries first.

Antenna Connections
Antennas
• The antenna requirements for good color television reception are more important than those for
black & white television reception. For this reason, a good quality outdoor antenna is strongly
recommended.
The following is a brief explanation of the type of connections that are provided with the various
antenna systems:
F-type connector
1. A 75 ohm system is generally a round cable with F-type connector
that can easily be attached to a terminal without tools (not
supplied). The F-type connector should be finger tightened
only.
75-ohm coaxial cable (round)
2. A 300 ohm system is a flat “twin-lead” cable that can be attached
to a 75 ohm terminal through a 300-75 ohm ADAPTOR (not
supplied).
300-ohm twin-lead cable (flat)
OUTDOOR ANTENNA CONNECTION
• Use one of the following two diagrams if you connect an outdoor antenna.
A: Using a VHF/UHF combination outdoor antenna.
B: Using separate VHF and/or UHF outdoor antenna.
• Connect an outdoor antenna cable lead-in to the COAXIAL CABLE CONNECTOR on the rear of the
TV set.
A. Combination VHF/UHF
B. Separate VHF/UHF
CABLE TV (CATV) CONNECTION
• A 75 ohm coaxial cable connector is built into the set for easy hookup. When connecting the 75 ohm
coaxial cable to the set, screw the 75 ohm cable to the COAXIAL CABLE CONNECTOR.
• Some cable TV companies offer “premium pay channels”. Since the signals of these premium pay
channels are scrambled, a cable TV converter/descrambler is generally provided to the subscriber
by the cable TV company. This converter/descrambler is necessary for normal viewing of the scrambled
channels. (Set your TV on channel 3 or 4. Typically one of these channels is used. If this is unknown,
consult your cable TV company.) For more specific instructions on installing cable TV, consult your
cable TV company. One possible method of utilizing the converter/descrambler provided by your
cable TV company is explained below.
Please note: RF switch equipped with position A/B (not provided) is required.
“A” position on the RF switch (not supplied) : You can view all unscrambled channels using the TV’s
channel keys.
“B” position on the RF switch (not supplied) : You can view the scrambled channels via the converter/
descrambler using the converter’s channel keys.

• Selecting MTS while in the INPUT mode does not change the type of sound; in this case, sound is
determined by the video source.
Closed Caption
L HOW TO SET CLOSED CAPTION
• Your TV is equipped with an internal Closed Caption decoder. “Closed
Caption” is a system which allows you to view conversations, narration,
and sound effects in TV programs and home videos as subscript on
your TV screen as shown on the right.
• Not all the programs and videos will offer closed caption. Please look
for the “
” symbol to ensure that captions will be shown.
• Closed Caption broadcast can be viewed in two modes: CAPTION
and TEXT. For each mode, two channels are available, CH1 and CH2:
The [CAPTION] mode subscripts dialogues and commentaries of TV
dramas and news programs while allowing clear view of the picture.
The [TEXT] mode displays over the picture other various information
(such as TV program schedule, weather forecast, etc.) that is
independent of the TV programs.

• Closed Caption may malfunction (white blocks, strange characters, etc.) if signal conditions are poor
or if there are problems at the broadcast source. This does not necessarily indicate a problem with
your set.
• If any button is pressed to call up the ON SCREEN DISPLAY while viewing a CLOSED CAPTION
broadcast, the closed captions will disappear momentarily.
• When viewing in TEXT mode, if no TEXT broadcast is being received, for some programs the screen
may become dark and blank. Should this occur, set the Closed Caption mode to “OFF”.
Parent Control (V-CHIP Operation)
L V-CHIP
• This function allows you to restrict TV programs and also allows you to control TV usage based on
FCC data. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes that may
be harmful.
• Restriction of TV programs includes two characters that contain information about the program’s MPAA
rating and the TV Parental Guidelines. MPAA is restricted by age. TV Parental Guidelines are restricted
by age and contents.
• Since a TV program may use either the MPAA rating or the TV Guidelines you should adjust both for
complete control.
