Dear Customer :

Emerson Radio Corp. would like to thank you for choosing this color television receiver. It incorporates a host of features designed to give you excellent performance for many years to come.

We realize that you’re eager to turn it on and begin enjoying the high-qualitypictures it delivers just as quickly as possible, but we ask you to take a few minutes to read the instructions

in the booklet to familiarize yourself with the receiver, its functions and some features which may be new to you. If you follow the instructions, this unit should give you many years of viewing pleasure.

If for any reason it does not, we want to hear about it. Please write to us at the address

above. Emerson always welcomes comments and suggestions on this or any of our other products.

On the other hand, when you discover the enjoyment, reliability and ease of use that is built into it, we hope that you will tell your friends, and consider Emerson when you make your next purchase of home entertainment equipment.

In addition to TV receivers, Emerson Radio Corp. produces a full line of audiovisual products built to the same high design, engineering, and manufacturing standards as this unit.

Here are a few tips that will keep your TV receiver looking great and performing for years to come.

Avoid putting it in excessively hot locations. Damage to the cabinet or premature component failures can result.

There are ventilation holes in the bottom and rear of the cabinet. Make sure that they remain unobstructed. Do not place the receiver on top of a thick cloth.

If you don’t plan to use the receiver for several days, it’s a good idea to unplug it from the power outlet.

Many common household cleaning agents, sprays, solvents, and polishes will cause permanent damage to the surface of the cabinet. The best cleaning agents are mild soap and a damp cloth.

Again, thank you for choosing this Emerson product. We have employed advanced engineering techniques in its design, and manufactured it in one of the world’s most up-to-dateproduction facilities. The result is a TV receiver that we know you will be as proud to own as we were to create.

Very truly yours,

Connecting an Antenna or Cable to Your TV

Your TV will provide you with the best performance if you connect it to an external antenna or cable system. Follow the directions below make this connection. Please note that you will normally only have to make one of the connections shown below, not all of them.

All connections will be made to the antenna terminal on the back of your TV. The antenna terminal is a silver metal post partially surrounded by two plastic tabs. For help in locating the antenna terminal, see “Your TV's Back Panel” on page 4.

Connecting an Antenna

If your antenna ends in a single coaxial lead, simply press or screw the cable onto the antenna terminal on the back of your TV.

If your antenna ends in a pair of 300 ohm twin leads, you must use a 300-ohm/75-ohm adapter(available at your local electronics store). Place the leads underneath the screws on the adapter, tighten the screws, then press the adapter onto the antenna terminal on the back of the TV.
