Closed Captions
Closed captioning is a process which converts the audio portion of a television program into written
words, which then appear on the television screen in a form similar to subtitles. Closed captions allow
viewers to read the dialogue and narration of television programs.
Using Closed Captions
FOLLOW ME
Captions are the subtitles for the dialogue and narration of television
programs. For prerecorded programs, program dialogue can be
arranged into captions in advance. It is possible to caption a live
program by using a process called “real-time captioning”, which
creates captions instantly. Real-time captioning is normally done by
professional reporters using a machine shorthand system with
computer for translation into English.
Captioning is an effective system for the hearing-impaired, and it can
also used as an aid in teaching language skills.
• The picture at left shows a typical caption.
Caption Tips
• Not all TV broadcasts include closed caption signals.
• Sometimes TV stations broadcast two different caption signals on the same channel. By selecting CC
1 or CC2, you can choose which signal you view. CC 1 is usually the signal with the captions, while CC
2 might show demonstration or programming information.
• Your TV might not display caption signals correctly under the following circumstances.
1. Poor reception conditions are encountered:
A
IGNITION:
Picture may flutter, drift, display black spots or horizontal streaking,
which are usuallycaused by interference from automobile ignition
systems, neon lamps, electrical drills or other electrical appliances.
A
GHOSTS:
Ghosts are caused when the TV signal splits and follows two paths.
One is the direct path and the other is reflected off tall buildings,
hills or other objects. Changing the direction or position of the
antenna may improve reception.
A
SNOW:
If your TV is located at the weak, fringe area of a TV signal, your
picture may be marred by small dots. It may be necessary to install
a special antenna to improve the picture.
2. An old, bad or illegally recorded being played.
3. Strong, random signals from a car or airplane interfere with the TV signal.
4. The signal from the antenna is weak.
5. The program wasn't captioned when it was produced, transmitted or taped.
24
Displaying Text
Text services offer a wide variety of information on all kinds of subjects
(ex. captioned program lists, weather forecasts, stock exchange
topics, news for hearing-impaired---) filling the TV screen.
However, even though the program does offer captioning, text
services may not be available.
Note
• In the event you are receiving a poor signal, an empty black box may
appear and disappear, when text mode is turned on. This commonly
happens under poor signal conditions.

Programming the Remote to operate other devices
The remote control for your projection TV is a multi-brand or
universal remote control. It can be programmed to operate most
remote-controllable devices of other manufacturers.
Note that the remote control may not control all models of other
brands.

1. Test your remote control.
To find out whether your remote control can operate the IR device
without programming, turn on the IR device such as a VCR and
press the corresponding mode button (VCR) on the remote
control, while pointing at the IR device. Test the POWER and CH
+/- buttons to see if IR device responds properly. If not, the remote
requires programming to operate the device.
2. Turn on the IR device to be programmed, then press the
corresponding mode button on the remote control.
3. Press the POWER and MUTE buttons simultaneously, the remote
control is ready to be programmed for the code.
4. There are two ways to find the right code for the IR device.
A. If you press the CH +/- buttons repeatedly, the codes will
change one at-a-time. Press the POWER button after each code
change. If the right code is found, the device will turn off.

Maintenance
Early malfunctions can be prevented. Careful and regular cleaning can help extend the amount
of time you will have your new projection TV. Be sure to turn the power off and pull out the
power plug from the wall power outlet before you begin any cleaning.
Screen Cleaning
1. Here’s a great way to keep the dust off your screen for a while. Wet a soft cloth in
a mixture of lukewarm water and a little fabric softener or dish washing
detergent. Wring the cloth until it’s almost dry, and then use it to wipe the screen.
2. Make sure the excess water is off the screen, and then let it air-dry before you
turn on your TV.
Cabinet Cleaning
1. Use a soft cloth with a mild soap solution to wipe the cabinet.
2. Rinse the cloth and wipe the cabinet again.
3. Let the cabinet air-dry before turning the TV on.
Extended Absence
If you expect to leave your TV dormant for a long time (such as a vacation), unplug
the power cord to protect against possible damage from lightning or power surges.
If you use an off-air antenna, you may also want to disconnect it from the back of
your TV before leaving.
