16. 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.
17. 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.
18. Wall or Ceiling Mounting - The appliance should be
mounted to a wall or ceiling only as recommended by the
manufacturer.
19. Power Lines - An outdoor antenna should be located away
from power lines.
20. 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 mast 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 Figure below.
21 Object and Liquid Entry - Care should be taken so that
objects do not fall and liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through openings.
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.

UNDERSTANDING AUTOLOCK
he AutoLock feature can help parT
ents censor what their children
watch on TV. AutoLock receives content advisories sent by broadcasters or
other program providers. After you
program AutoLock, it can respond to
the content advisories and block programs that contain content which you
may consider objectionable—offensive
language, violence, or sexual situations.
In this section, you’ll learn how to
block channels and programming that
is not rated, is unrated, or has no rating. You will also find out how to turn
these blocking features on or off.
Following on this page are brief explanations of AutoLock terms and program ratings.
Terms
BLOCKING control—can be thought
of as the “master switch” for
AutoLock. This control affects the settings you have chosen for blocking
programs according to movie ratings
or TV ratings, or for blocking programs that have no rating or are unrated. When the BLOCKING control is
OFF, the blocking or censoring of programs is disabled. When the BLOCKING control is ON, blocking will
occur according to the settings you
have chosen.
BLOCK UNRATED control—if set
to ON, blocks all unrated programs.
Unrated programming consists of the
kind of shows that the MPAA (Motion
Picture Association of America) or the
TV broadcasters have chosen not to
rate.

TV-Y (All Children)—designed to be appropriate for all children, especially ones ages 2–6. Programs rated TV-Y are
not expected to frighten younger children.
TV-Y7 (Directed to Older Children)—designed for children ages 7 and older. Programs rated TV-Y7 may be more
appropriate for children who have acquired the development skills needed to distinguish between make-believe and reality. Such programs may include mild fantasy and comic violence (FV).
TV-G (General Audience)—likely to be considered suitable for children of all ages. Such programs have little or no
violence, no strong language, and little or no sexual dialogue or sexual situations.
TV-PG (Parental Guidance Suggested)—contain material that parents may find unsuitable for younger children. This
type of programming has one or more of the following: moderate violence (V), some sexual situations (S), infrequent
coarse language (L), or some suggestive dialogue (D).
TV-14 (Parents Strongly Cautioned)—contain material that many parents will find unsuitable for children under 14
years of age. Such programs have one or more of the following: intense violence (V); intense sexual situations (S);
strong, coarse language (L); or intensely suggestive dialogue (D).
TV-MA (Mature Audience Only)—specifically designed to be viewed by adults and therefore may be unsuitable for
children under 17. Such programs have one or more of the following: graphic violence (V); explicit sexual situations
(S); or crude, indecent language (L).

HELPFUL HINTS
If you are having difficulties with your product, check this list of difficulties and possible solutions before requesting service. You
may be able to solve the problem yourself. Charges for TV installation and adjustment of customer controls are not covered under
your warranty. If you need to call a customer service representative, please know the model number and serial number of your product before you call. This information is displayed on the back of the product. Also, please take a moment to identify the problem you

CAUTION
The continual presence of nonmoving images on your TV screen can damage the picture tube.
A video source such as a video game, CDI, or TV information channel that shows a constant nonmoving pattern on the TV screen
can damage the picture tube. When your TV is continuously used with such a source, the nonmoving portion of the on-screen image
can become permanently fixed on the picture tube. When you are not using the video source, turn it off. Also, regularly alternate the
use of such video sources with normal TV viewing.
Cleaning and Care
• To avoid possible shock hazard, be sure the TV is unplugged from the electrical outlet before cleaning.
• When you are cleaning the TV, take care not to scratch or damage the screen surface. Avoid wearing jewelry or using anything
abrasive. Wipe the front screen with a cloth dampened with water. Use even, easy, vertical strokes when cleaning.
• Gently wipe the cabinet surfaces with a clean cloth or sponge dampened in a solution of cool, clear water. Use a clean, dry cloth
to dry the wiped surfaces.
• Never use thinners, insecticide sprays or other chemicals on or near the cabinet, as they might cause permanent marring of the
cabinet finish.

found on the television control panel through which infrared
remote control command signals are received.

and finds an operating code for another product (such as a VCR
or a cable converter). After the code has been Òidentified,Ó the
