(NEC ART 250, PART H)

13.OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING-Ifan 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-dis-charge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode. (Fig. A)

14.LIGHTNING-Foradded 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 powerline surges.

15.POWER LINES-Anoutside 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 circuits as contact with them might be fatal.

16.OVERLOADING-Donot overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.

17.OBJECT AND LIQUID ENTRY-Neverpush 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-Donot 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-Unplugthis 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 technician 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-Whenreplacement 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-Uponcompletion of any service or repairs to this TV, ask the service technician to perform routine safety checks to determine that the TV is in proper operating condition.

22.HEAT-ThisTV product should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other products (including amplifiers) that produce heat.

PREPARATION FOR USE

CONNECTION

This section describes how to connect this TV to reception and other sources.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AN ANTENNA

As DTV is only available over the air, you need an antenna to receive digital signal.

[ANTENNA / BASIC CABLE CONNECTION]

1) When connecting TV to antenna

Connect the RF cable or antenna cable on your home outlet to the ANT. IN jack of this TV.

2) When connecting TV to basic cable (without box)

Connect the RF cable or incoming cable on your home outlet to the ANT. IN jack of this TV.

or

(if necessary)

CABLES NOT INCLUDED

* COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE

NOTES:

For your safety and to avoid damages to the unit, unplug the antenna cable from the ANT. IN jack before moving the unit.

If you use an antenna in order to receive analog TV, the same antenna generally will work for DTV reception. Outdoor or attic antennas will be more effective than set-topversions.

To easily switch between antenna and cable wires, you can purchase “Antenna Selector” commercially available.

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

Channel scanning is necessary for the TV to memorize all available channels in your area if using antenna or basic cable. (Refer to “INITIAL SETTINGS” on page 13.)

INSTALLING THE BATTERIES

 

1

2

3

Install two AA batteries (supplied) matching the

polarity indicated inside battery compartment of

 

 

 

the remote control.

[BATTERY PRECAUTIONS]

Be sure to follow the correct polarity as indicated in the battery compartment. Reversed batteries may cause damage to the device.

Do not mix different types of batteries together (e.g. Alkaline and Carbon-Zinc)or old batteries with fresh ones.

If the device is not to be used for a long period of time, remove the batteries to prevent damage or injury from possible battery leakage.

Do not try to recharge batteries not intended to be recharged; they can overheat and rupture.

Features of digital broadcasting

Digital broadcasting uses the newest broadcasting technology such as compression of audio and video signals and provides much more improved image and sound quality than analog broadcasting. For image quality, digital broadcasting have realized the High Definition Television (HDTV) that can display sharper and finer images than Standard Definition Television (SDTV) with double scanning lines, and can adopt the 16:9 wide screen format that fits more to range of human vision.

For audio quality, digital broadcasting offers the 5.1ch surround broadcast to give you the feeling of being at a stadium or a theater.

In addition, digital broadcasting enables to broadcast 2 or 3 programs of Standard Definition Television (SDTV), which is the analog television format, at the same time by 1 channel. This feature has made the program planning more diversified. In addition, digital broadcasting has overcome problems experienced with analog television such as ghosting or interference with digital technology.

Minor channel of digital broadcasting

In digital broadcasting, the selected channel can have the sub channel. It is called the minor channel. Though the minor channel programs provide a little poorer image quality than the High Definition Television (HDTV) programs, they have such an advantage as it will not move back other programs even when a sport relay is extended.

IR SIGNAL CHECK

If the remote control doesn’t work properly, You can test if the remote control sends out the infrared signal with AM radio or a digital camera (including builtin camera of cellular phone). It will help to define the cause of malfunction.

With an AM radio:

Tune an AM radio to a band with no broadcasting. Press a button on 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.

With a digital camera(including builtin camera of cellular phone):

Direct a digital camera to remote control, press and hold a button on remote control. If infrared light appears through digital camera, the remote is working.
