THIS SYMBOL INDICATES THAT THERE ARE IMPORTANT OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE LITERATURE ACCOMPANYING THE APPLIANCE. The important note is located on the rear of the cabinet. 1. READ INSTRUCTIONS - All the safety and operat- ing instructions should be read before the appliance is operated. 2. RETAIN INSTRUCTIONS - The safety and operat- ing instructions should be retained for future reference. 3. HEED WARNINGS - All warnings on the appliance and in the operating instructions should be adhered to. 4. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS - All operating and use instructions should be followed. 5. CLEANING - Unplug TV from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol clean- ers. Use a damp cloth for cleaning. EXCEPTION: A product that is meant for uninterrupt- ed service and, that for some specific reason, such as the possibility of the loss of an authorization code for a CATV converter, is not intended to be unplugged by the user for cleaning or any other purpose, may exclude the reference to unplugging the appliance in the cleaning description otherwise required in item 5. 6. ATTACHMENTS - Do not use attachments not rec- ommended by the TV manufacturer as they may cause hazards. 7. WATER AND MOISTURE - Do not use this TV near water, for example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, and the like. 8. ACCESSORIES - Do not place this TV on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The TV may fall, causing serious injury to someone, 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. Any mounting of the appliance should follow the man- ufacturer’s instructions and should use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer. An appli- ance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn. AMEUBLES - Cet appareil ne doit être placé que sur un meuble (avec ou sans roulettes) recommandé par le fabricant. Si vous l’installez sur un meuble à roulettes, déplacez les deux ensembles avec précaution. Un arrêt brusque, l’utilisation d’une force excessive et des surfaces irrégulières risquent de déstabiliser l’ensemble et de le renverser. 9. VENTILATION - Slots and openings in the cabinet and the back or bottom are provided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the TV and to protect it from overheating, these openings must not be blocked or covered. The openings should never be blocked by placing the TV on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar sur- face. This TV should never be placed near or over a radiator or heat register. This TV should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufactur- er’s instructions have been adhered to. 10. POWER SOURCES - This TV should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult your appliance dealer or local power company. For TVs intended to operate from battery power, or other sources, refer to the oper- ating instructions. 11. GROUNDING OR POLARIZATION - This TV is equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug(a plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug. 12. POWER-CORD PROTECTION - Power-supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, con- PORTABLE CART WARNING S3126A venience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the appliance. 13. OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING - If an out- side 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. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70, provides infor- mation 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 conduc- tors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the ground- ing electrode. (Fig. A) 14. LIGHTNING - For added protection for this TV 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 or cable system. This will prevent damage to the TV due to lightning and power-line surges. 15. POWER LINES - An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light of 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 cir- cuits as contact with them might be fatal. 16. OVERLOADING - Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock. 17. OBJECT AND LIQUID ENTRY - Never push objects of any kind into this TV through openings 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 TV. 18. SERVICING - Do not attempt to service this TV yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. 19. DAMAGE REQUIRING SERVICE - Unplug this TV from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: a. When the power supply cord or plug is damaged or frayed. b. If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the TV. c. If the TV has been exposed to rain or water. d. If the TV does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions, as improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified techni- cian to restore the TV to its normal operation. e. If the TV has been dropped or damaged in any way. f. When the TV exhibits a distinct change in performance, this indicates a need for service. 20. REPLACEMENT PARTS - When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician uses replacement parts specified by the manufacturer that have the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, injury to persons or other hazards. 21. SAFETY CHECK - Upon completion of any service or repairs to this TV, ask the service technician to per- form routine safety checks to determine that the TV is in proper operating condition. 22. HEAT - This TV product should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other products (including amplifiers) that produce heat.

SPECIFICATIONS OPTIONAL SETTINGS (Continued) MAINTENANCE TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE Sometimes a performance problem can be easily solved by checking seemingly apparent but often over- looked possibilities. Before arranging for service, check these items. It could save your time and money. QUICK SERVICE CHECK LIST PROBLEM POSSIBLE REMEDY Try a new channel, if OK, then possible station trouble. Is TV plugged in? Power at outlet? Is TV’s power on? Is antenna or cable connected to terminal on the back of the set? If outside antenna is being used, check for broken wire or loose connection. Check for local interference. Turn off the TV and then turn it on after about a minute. Adjust COLOR control. Adjust CONTRAST & BRIGHT control. Check batteries in remote control. Move the TV away from the nearby appliances which generate a magnetic field. Turn off using [POWER], then turn it on again 30 minutes later or so. Check if there is an obstacle between the sensor and the remote control. Test the signal output.* If OK, then possible remote sensor trouble. Remote Control Doesn’t Work Bars On Screen Picture Distorted Picture Rolls Vertically No Color Poor Reception on Some Channels Weak Picture Lines or Streaks in Picture Ghosts in picture Picture Blurred Sound OK, Picture Poor Picture OK, Sound Poor No Picture or Sound Different color marks on screen *Additional Remote test Tune an AM radio to a band with no broadcasting. Press a button on the remote control toward the radio. Sound will be fluttering when you press any key and the radio receives the signal. This means the remote control unit is working. Closed Caption Problem Possible Remedy Misspelled captions are shown. Text is not shown in its entirety or there is a delay of what is being said. Captions are scrambled with white boxes on the TV screen. No captions are displayed in a program which must contain closed caption. No captions are displayed when playing a prerecorded videotape with closed caption. The TV screen shows a black box. Spelling errors may pass through uncorrected by the closed caption- ing production company in a live broadcast. Captions that are delayed a few seconds behind the actual dialogue are common for live broadcasts. Most captioning production compa- nies can display a dialogue to a maximum of 220 words per minute. If a dialogue exceeds that rate, selective editing is used to insure that the captions remain up-to-date with the current TV screen dialogue. Interference caused by building, power lines, thunderstorms, etc. may cause scrambled or incomplete captions to appear. Broadcasters may a time compression process to the actual pro- gram so that additional advertising time can be given. In this case, captions will be lost since the decoder cannot read the compressed information. The videotape may be either an illegal copy or the tape duplicating company may accidentally have left out the captioning signals dur- ing the copying process. You are in TEXT mode. Select CAPTION [C1], [C2] or [OFF]. CABINET CLEANING ● Wipe the front panel and other exterior sur- faces of the TV with a soft cloth immersed in lukewarm water and wrung dry. ● Never use a solvent or alcohol. Do not spray insecticide liquid near the TV. Such chemi- cals may cause damage and discoloration to the exposed surfaces. PICTURE TUBE CLEANING Wipe the picture tube of the TV with a soft cloth. Before cleaning the picture tube, discon- nect the power cord.
