Important Safety Information
Always be careful when using your TV receiver. To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
and other injuries, keep these safety precautions in mind when installing, using, and
maintaining your machine.
• Read all safety and operating instructions before operating your TV.
• Keep the safety and operating instructions for future reference.
• Heed all warnings on the TV receiver and in the operating instructions.
• Follow all operating and use instructions.
• Unplug the TV receiver from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a damp cloth; do not use
liquid or aerosol cleaners.
• Never add any attachments and/or equipment without approval of the manufacturer. Such
additions can increase the risk of fire, electric shock, or other personal injury.
• Do not use the TV receiver where contact with or immersion in water is a possibility, such as
near bath tubs, sinks, washing machines, swimming pools, etc.
• Do not place the TV on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or
table where it can fall. A falling TV can cause serious injury to a
child or adult, and serious damage to the appliance. Use only with
a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the TV. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions when mounting the unit, and use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer. Move the TV and cart with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces can make the
unit and cart unsteady and likely to overturn.
• Provide ventilation for the TV receiver. The unit is designed with slots in the cabinet for
ventilation to protect it from overheating. Do not block these openings with any object, and
do not place the TV receiver on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. Do not place it near
a radiator or heat register. If you place the TV receiver on a rack or bookcase, ensure that
there is adequate ventilation and that you’ve followed the manufacturer’s instructions for
mounting.
• Operate your TV receiver only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label.
If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your appliance dealer
or local power company.
• Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this TV is equipped with a polarized
alternating current line plug having one blade wider than the other. This plug will fit into the
power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact your electrician to replace your outlet.
SAFETY
1
• Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so that they won’t be walked on
or pinched by objects placed on or against them. Pay particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit.
• Unplug the TV from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a lightning storm or when left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent damage to the unit due to lightning and power-line surges.
• Avoid overhead power lines. An outside antenna system should not be placed 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, be extremely careful to keep
from touching the power lines or circuits. Contact with such lines can be fatal.
• Do not overload the wall outlet or extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric
shock.
• Do not insert anything through the openings in the unit, where they can touch dangerous voltage points or damage parts. Never spill liquid of any kind on the TV.
• Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the TV, be sure the antenna or
cable system is grounded so as to provide some
protection against voltage surges and built-up static
charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA No.70-1984, provides information about
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.

as young adults, the TV guidelines
must be set up separately for each age
group. (See next step.)

At this point, one of the TV-Ratings is highlighted.
Move the joystick to the right: Depending on your existing setup, a letter “U” or “B” will start blinking.
(U= Unblocked, B= Blocked)
While the “U” or ”B” is blinking, move the joystick up or down to block or unblock the category.
Move the joystick to the right to save the TV guidelines. A TV-Rating will be highlighted, and no letters will blink.
To select a different TV-Rating, move the joystick up or down and then repeat the process.
Note 1: The TV-Y7, TV-PG, TV-14 and TV-MA have additional options. See the next step to change any of the following sub-ratings:
FV: Fantasy violence
D: Dialog
L: L
S: Sexual situation
V: Violence
Note 2: The V-Chip will automatically block certain categories that are “more restrictive.” For example, if you block
“TV-Y” category, then TV-Y7 will automatically be blocked. Similarly, if you block the TV-G category, then all the
categories in the “young adult” group will be blocked (TV-G, TV-PG, TV-14 and TV-MA). The sub-ratings (D, L, S, V)
work together similarly. (See next section.)

How to set the FV, D, L, S and V sub-ratings.
First, highlight one of these TV-Ratings: TV-Y7, TV-PG, TV-14 or TV-MA (See Step 4, on previous page).
Next, while the TV-Rating is highlighted, repeatedly move the joystick to the right. This will cycle through the available sub-ratings (FV,L, S, D or V).
A blinking letter (“U” or “B”) will be displayed for each sub-rating. While the “U” or “B” is blinking, move the joystick up or down to change the sub-rating.
Move the joystick to the right to save the TV guidelines. A TV-Rating will be highlighted, and no letters will blink.
To select a different TV-Rating, move the joystick up or down and then repeat the process.
Note: The V-chip will automatically block certain categories that are “More restrictive”. For example, if you block
“L” sub-rating in TV-PG, then the “L” sub-ratings in TV-14 and TV-MA will automatically be blocked.

Press the Menu button to clear all the screens. (Or proceed to the next section, and set up additional restrictions
based on the MPAA codes).
How to Set up Restrictions using the MPAA Ratings: G, PG, PG-13,
R, NC-17, X
The MPAA rating system uses the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) system, and its
main application is for movies. (Eventually, movie videocassettes will be encoded with MPAA ratings.) When the V-Chip lock is on, the TV will automatically block any programs that are coded
with objectionable ratings (either MPAA or TV-Ratings).
