IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
For your protection, please read these instructions completely, and
keep this manual for future reference.
Carefully observe and comply with all warnings, cautions and
instructions placed on the set, or described in the operating
instructions or service manual.
WARNING
To guard against injury, the following basic safety precautions
should be observed in the installation, use, and servicing of the set.
Use
Power Sources
This set should be operated only from the type
of power source indicated on the serial/model
plate. If you are not sure of the type of electrical
power supplied to your home, consult your
dealer or local power company. For those sets
designed to operate from battery power, refer
to the operating instructions.

unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact
your electrician to have a suitable outlet installed.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding plug.
Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords or
convenience receptacles beyond their capacity,
since this can result in fire or electric shock.
Always turn the set off when it is not to be
used. When the set is left unattended and
unused for long periods of time, unplug it
from the wall outlet as a precaution against
the possibility of an internal malfunction that
could create a fire hazard.
Do not disconnect the antenna or the power cord during a heavy
storm. Lightning may strike while you are holding the cable or
cord, causing serious injury. Turn off your TV and wait for the
weather to improve.
Corrosion
Object and Liquid Entry
Never push objects of any kind into the set
through the 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 set.
Attachments
Do not use attachments not recommended by the
manufacturer, as they may cause hazards.
Do not place any objects, especially heavy objects,
on top of the set. The object may fall from the set,
causing injury.
Cleaning
Unplug the set from the wall outlet before
cleaning or polishing it. Do not use liquid
cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a cloth lightly
dampened with water for cleaning the exterior
of the set.
If a snapping or popping sound from a TV set is
continuous or frequent while the TV is operating,
unplug the TV and consult your dealer or service
technician. It is normal for some TV sets to make
occasional snapping or popping sounds,
particularly when being turned on or off.
Installation
Always use two or more people to lift or move the set. The set is
heavy and the bottom surface is flat. Serious injury can result from
trying to move the set by yourself alone, or from unsteady
handling. Install the set on a stable, level surface.
Water and Moisture
Do not use power-line operated sets near
water — for example, near a bathtub,
washbowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a
wet basement, or near a swimming pool, etc.
Accessories
Do not place the set on an unstable cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, table or shelf. The set may fall,
causing serious injury to a child or an adult, and
serious damage to the set. Use only a cart or stand
recommended by the manufacturer for the
specific model of TV. Any mounting of the
product should follow the manufacturer’s
instructions, and should use a mounting
accessory recommended by the manufacturer. 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.
Disconnect all cables and cords from the set before attempting to
move the set.
Do not allow children or pets to climb up onto, or push against, the
set. The set may fall, causing serious injury.
Use of this TV near the seashore may subject the set to excessive
salt, corrosion and internal damage and result in deterioration of
the TV's performance. If the set will be subjected to these
conditions, steps should be taken to reduce the humidity and
temperature of the area where the TV is located.

Ventilation
Lightning
The slots and openings in the cabinet and in the
back or bottom are provided for necessary
ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the set,
and to protect it from overheating, these slots and
openings must never be blocked or covered.
For added protection for this television receiver 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 receiver due to lightning and
power line surges.
❑
Never cover the slots and openings with a
cloth or other materials.
Service
❑
Never block the slots and openings by
placing the set on a bed, sofa, rug or other
similar surface.
❑
Never place the set in a confined space, such
as a bookcase, or built-in cabinet, unless
proper ventilation is provided.
❑

Introducing the FD Trinitron Wega
Overview
This chapter describes the contents of the package in which the TV is
shipped and provides an overview of the features of your Wega TV.
Presenting the FD Trinitron Wega
The FD Trinitron Wega (pronounced VAY-GAH) is characterized by
outstanding contrast, uncompromising accuracy, and corner-tocorner detail.
You will recognize the superiority of Wega technology almost
immediately. The first thing you will probably notice is minimal glare
from the flat picture tube. This flat-screen technology improves
picture detail without distortion, unlike conventional curved screens.
The FD Trinitron delivers outstanding image detail not only at the
screen center, but also at the corners — so you can enjoy a bright,
clear picture from any location in a room.
Package Contents
Along with your new Trinitron TV, the packing box contains a remote
control and two AA batteries. These items are all you need to set up
and use the TV.
Features
Some of the features that you will enjoy with your new TV include:
❑
Built-in Digital Television Receiver: You can watch digital
television programs and enjoy the improved audio/video quality
offered by these programs. With high-definition signal reception,
you can watch TV signals broadcast in HDTV for the clearest
possible broadcast picture.
❑
Screen Mode: Enables you to resize the picture.
DRC® (Digital Reality Creation) Multifunction: Unlike
conventional line doublers, the DRC Multifunction feature
replaces the signal’s NTSC waveform with the near-HD
equivalent, while doubling the number of vertical and horizontal
lines. This results in four times the density for quality sources,
such as DVD, satellite, and digital camcorders. The Picture
Settings allow you to select interlaced, progressive, or
CineMotion™ output.
❑
❑
Favorites Menu: Allows you to select from 16 of your favorite
channels.

A signaling method that uses continuous changes in the amplitude or frequency of an
electronic transmission to convey information.
Refers to the ratio between the width and height of the screen and picture image. This model
has a 16:9 (widescreen) aspect ratio.

Component video is sent through three cables: two color shade (chrominance) signals and one
brightness (luminance) signal. Component video achieves greater color accuracy than composite
video or S VIDEO by splitting chrominance into two separate portions.
Composite video is sent through a single cable. Composite video combines the color shade
(chrominance) and brightness (luminance) information into one video signal.
A process that demagnetizes the metal components in the TV monitor, which eliminates image
distortion that can result from magnetic charges acquired by the TV’s components. Your TV
degausses automatically when it is turned on.
A new technology for transmitting and receiving broadcast television signals. DTV provides clearer
resolution and improved sound quality over analog television.
Provides an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface between this TV and any HDMIequipped audio/video component, such as a set-top box, DVD player, and A/V receiver. HDMI
supports enhanced, or high-definition video, plus two-channel digital audio.
A unit of the Federal Communications Commission, Washington, DC, that establishes television
standards in the United States, such as NTSC Color, the standard used in this TV.
Radio Frequency. That part of the frequency spectrum that is used to transmit TV and radio signals.
S VIDEO requires a single cable, which carries the brightness (luminance) and color (chrominance)
signals of the picture separately. S VIDEO provides better resolution than composite video, which
carries the signals together.
VHF (Very High Frequency) is the part of the frequency spectrum from 30 to 300 megahertz. UHF
(Ultra High Frequency) is the part of the frequency spectrum from 300 to 3,000 megahertz.
Provides 480 lines of resolution. Displays images using interlaced scanning, which first transmits
all the odd lines on the TV screen and then the even lines.
Provides 480 lines of resolution. Displays images using progressive scanning, which transmits each
line from top to bottom.
Provides 720 lines of resolution. Displays images using progressive scanning, which transmits each

Provides 1080 lines of resolution. Displays images using interlaced scanning, which first transmits
