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 recommended 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 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.

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 surface. This TV should never be placed near or over a radiator or heat register. This TV should not be placed in abuilt-ininstallation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is

provided or the manufacturer’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 operating instructions.

11.GROUNDING OR POLARIZATION - This TV is equipped with a polarizedalternating-currentline 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-supplycords 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, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the appliance.

13.OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING - If an outside 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 andbuilt-upstatic charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70, provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of thelead-inwire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location ofantenna-dischargeunit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

• Be sure your antenna or other device is connected properly before plugging in the power cord.

[Antenna Cable Connection]

When connecting the unit to an antenna or cable TV company (without cable/satellite box)

Connect the RF coaxial cable on your home outlet to the antenna input jack of this unit.

e.g.)

VHF / UHF

antenna rear of this unit

RF coaxial cable

or

cable TV company

*Once connections are completed, turn on the unit and begin initial setup.

Channel scanning is necessary for the unit to memorize all available channels in your area. (Refer to “Initial Setup” on page 11.)

Note:

For your safety and to avoid damage to device, please unplug the RF coaxial cable from the antenna input jack before moving the unit.

If you use an antenna to receive analog TV, it should also work for DTV reception. Outdoor or attic antennas will be more effective than settop versions.

To easily switch your reception source between antenna and cable, install an antenna selector.

If you connect to the cable system directly, contact the CATV installer.

[Connection to Cable Box or Satellite Box]

Connect the RF coaxial cable on your home outlet to the input jack of the cable/satellite box.

Use another RF coaxial cable to connect the antenna input jack of the unit to the output jack of the cable/satellite box.

About digital TV broadcasting:

With its high definition broadcast, digital broadcasting far surpasses analog broadcasting in both its picture and sound quality.

What is the minor channel?

By using high compression technology, digital broadcasting offers a service that enables multiple signals to send simultaneously.

Therefore, you can select more than one program per major channel since digital broadcasting technology distinguishes between multiple channels broadcast by a single network.

3 Press[SETUP] to exit.

Note:

To show the closed caption on your TV screen, broadcast signal must contain the closed caption data.

Not all TV programs and commercials have the closed caption or all types of the closed caption.

Captions and texts may not match the TV voice exactly.

Changing channels may delay the closed caption for a few seconds.

Adjusting or muting the volume may delay the closed caption for a few seconds.

Abbreviations, symbols and other grammatical shortcuts may be used in order to keep pace with the on-screenaction. This is not a problem with the unit.

The caption or text characters will not be displayed while the main menu or functions display is shown.

If a black box appears on the TV screen, this means that the closed caption is set to the text mode. To clear the box, select “CAPTION 1”, “CAPTION 2” or “OFF”.

If the unit receives poor quality television signals, the captions may contain errors, or there might be no captions at all. Some possible causes of poor quality signals are:

-Automobile ignition noise

-Electric motor noise

-Weak signal reception

-Multiplex signal reception (ghosts or screen flutter)

The unit retains the closed caption setting if the power fails.

When the unit receives a special effects playback signal (I.e.,Search, Slow and Still) from a VCR’s video output channel (CH3 or CH4), the unit may not display the correct caption or text.

Note:

The LCD panel is manufactured to provide many years of useful life. Occasionally a few non active pixels may appear as a fixed point of blue, green or red. This is not to be considered a defect in the LCD screen.

Some functions are not available in specific modes, but this is not a malfunction. Read the description in this owner's manual for more details on correct operations.

5Maintenance

Cabinet Cleaning

Wipe the front panel and other exterior surfaces of the unit with a soft cloth immersed in lukewarm water and wrung dry.

Never use a solvent or alcohol. Do not spray insecticide liquid near the unit. Such chemicals may cause damage and discoloration to the exposed surfaces.

Panel Cleaning

Wipe the panel of the unit with a soft cloth. Before cleaning the panel, disconnect the power cord.

IR Signal Check

If the remote control is not working properly, you can use an AM radio or digital camera (including a cellular phone with built-incamera) to see if it is sending out an infrared signal.

• With an AM radio:

Tune the AM radio station to a non-broadcastingfrequency. Point the remote control towards it, push any button and listen. If the sound from the radio flutters, it is receiving the remote

control’s infrared signal.

Servicing

Should your unit become inoperative, do not try to correct the problem yourself. There are no user serviceable parts inside. Turn off the unit, unplug the power cord and call our toll free customer support line found on the cover of this manual to locate an authorized service center.

• With a digital camera

(including built-incell phone cameras):

Point a digital camera towards the remote control. Push any button on the remote control and look through the digital camera. If the infrared light appears through the camera, the remote control is working.
