Automatic Electronic Tuning System — scans the VHF or UHF band and locks on to active channels.

Earphone Jack — lets you enjoy private listening with an optional earphone.

Three Power Options — lets you power the TV using internal batteries (not supplied) or an optional AC or DC adapter.

Fluorescent Backlight — illuminates the screen so you can watch the TV in the dark or in low-light conditions.

Built-inTelescoping Rod Antenna— provides adequate reception in most metropolitan areas.

Important: An external antenna jack is not available on this TV. Do not attempt to connect an external antenna.

Power

BATTERIES

Your TV uses four AA batteries (not supplied). For the best performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.

Cautions:

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

Follow these steps to install the batteries.

1.Lift up the stand then slide off the battery compartment’s cover (on the back of the TV) in the direction of the arrow and remove it.

2.Insert four fresh batteries (place the batteries on top of the ribbon for easy battery removal) aligning the positive (+) poles with the positive polarity symbols

(+) marked inside.

4 AA

Batteries

Ribbon

Caution: Installing batteries incorrectly can damage the TV.

3. Replace the cover.

Note: The TV can operate with alkaline batteries for about 4 hours. When the sound level lowers or the picture becomes unstable, replace the batteries.

Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not bury or burn them.

2

Caution: Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

AC POWER

You can power the TV from a standard AC outlet using an optional AC adapter available at your local RadioShack store.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2

!power source that supplies 6V DC and delivers at least

550 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit the TV's DC IN 6V jack. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the TV or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the TV before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the TV.

Set the adapter’s voltage switch to 6V. Plug the adapter’s 4.0 mm outer diameter/1.7 mm inner diameter barrel plug into the TV’s DC IN 6V jack. Then plug the other end of the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

Note: Internal batteries automatically disconnect when you connect an adapter to theDC IN 6V jack.

Cautions:

Do not leave the adapter plugged into the AC outlet or connected to the TV when you are not using the TV.

Always unplug the adapter from the AC outlet first.

The adapter might become warm after extended periods of use.

USING VEHICLE BATTERY POWER

You can use an optional DC adapter to power the TV from a vehicle’s cigarette-lightersocket if the vehicle has a12-voltDC, negative ground electrical system. Your local RadioShack store sells a variety of adapters.

Cautions:

You must use a power

!source that supplies 6V DCand delivers at least 550

mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit the TV's DC IN 6V jack. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the TV or the adapter.

Always connect the DC adapter to the TV before you connect it to the power source. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from the power source before you disconnect it from the TV.

1.Set the adapter’s voltage switch to 6V.

2.Attach the adapter’s 4 mm outer diameter/1.7 mm inner diameter barrel plug, aligning + with TIP, and plug it into the TV’s DC IN 6V jack.

3.Unplug the vehicle’s cigarette lighter and plug the large end of the DC adapter cord into the cigarette-lightersocket.

Cautions:

Do not leave the adapter plugged into the cigarette-lightersocket or connected to the TV when you are not using the TV.

Always disconnect the adapter from the cigarette-lightersocket first.

Notes:

If the TV does not operate properly when you use DC power, be sure the cigarettelighter socket is clean and that the adapter’s plug is properly connected to the socket.

Internal batteries automatically disconnect when you connect an adapter to the DC IN 6V jack.

Using Your TV

1.Extend the telescoping rod antenna.

2.Set UHF/VHF/OFF toVHF orUHF. The TV starts scanning and stops at the next active channel in the selected band.

3

3.Press TUNING to tune to a different channel. The tuning line (green for UHF, red for VHF) on the screen aligns with the channel number shown at the top (VHF) or bottom (UHF) of the screen.

4.To adjust the volume, rotate VOLUME located on the right side of the TV.

5.To adjust the picture to the desired brightness, rotate BRIGHT located on the right side of the TV. The brightness also changes with the screen’s angle.

Notes:

In low temperatures, the TV screen takes a few seconds to light or it is slightly red in color. This is not a malfunction.

Normal operation resumes after a short while.

If reception is poor, adjust the length or angle, and direction of the telescoping rod antenna. If inside a metal or concrete building, moving closer to a window might improve reception.

If desired, fold out the stand on the back of the TV and lean the TV on a flat surface.

USING AN EARPHONE

For private listening, you can connect an optional earphone with a 1/8-inchplug to the TV’sPHONE jack. This automatically mutes thebuilt-inspeaker.

Listening Safely

To protect your hearing, follow these guidelines when you use an earphone.

Set the volume to the lowest setting before you begin listening. After you begin listening, adjust the volume to a comfortable level.

Do not listen at extremely high volume levels. Extended high-volumelistening can lead to permanent hearing loss.

Once you set the volume, do not increase it. Over time, your ears adapt to the volume level, so a volume level that does not cause discomfort might still damage your hearing.

TRAFFIC SAFETY

Do not wear an earphone while operating a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can create a traffic hazard and could be illegal in some areas.

Even though some earphones let you hear some outside sounds when listening at normal volume levels, they still can present a traffic hazard.

Troubleshooting

Color too light or no color.

Extend the antenna and adjust its angle and direction.

No Picture and No Sound.

Be sure the batteries are fresh and inserted correctly.

If you use an adapter, be sure it is correctly connected.

No picture and fuzzy sound.

• Adjust the antenna.

Picture, but no sound.

Adjust VOLUME.

Be sure you disconnected the earphone.

Sound, but the picture is all white, dark, or blurred.

Adjust BRIGHT.

Be sure the batteries are fresh.

Picture is not clear (moves up or down, disappears periodically, becomes fuzzy or blurred or is doubled), but the TV has sound.

Be sure the antenna is fully extended. Adjust the antenna’s angle and direction for the best reception.

Be sure the batteries are fresh.

Be sure the TV is away from appliances that might cause interference.

In locations with poor reception, it might be impossible to get a clear picture or any picture at all. Move the TV to a different location.

This TV has been manufactured to the specifications of RadioShack and is covered

by a limited warranty from RadioShack. If your TV is not operating as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store or call 1-800-THE-SHACKfor assistance.
