Making Connections

Basic Connections

Overview

Connecting Antenna

System

To display clear, crisp pictures, you must connect your TV correctly and choose the correct display format. It is strongly recommended to connect the cable and antenna input using a 75-ohm coaxial cable to receive an optimum picture quality signal. A 300-ohm twin lead cable can be easily affected by radio noise and the like, resulting in signal deterioration. If you use a 300-ohm twin lead cable, keep it as far away as possible from the TV.

The way in which you connect your TV will vary, depending on how your home receives a signal (antenna and satellite; cable and cable box).

Do not use an indoor antenna, which is especially susceptible to radio noise.

Disconnect all power sources before making any connections.

For best results, use this connection if you have an antenna system.

Precaution on battery use

Improper use of batteries can result in a leakage of chemicals and/or explosion. Be sure to follow the instructions below.

=Place batteries with their terminals corresponding to the (+) and (–) indications.

=Different types of batteries have different characteristics. Do not mix batteries of different types.

=Do not mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new batteries and/or cause old batteries to leak chemicals.

=Remove batteries as soon as they are non-operable. Chemicals that leak from batteries can cause a rash. If chemical leakage is found, wipe with a cloth.

=The batteries supplied with the product may have a shorter life expectancy due to storage conditions.

=If the remote control is not used for an extended period of time, remove the batteries from the remote control.

Use the remote control by pointing it towards the remote sensor window of the set. Objects between the remote control and sensor window may prevent proper operation.

Cautions regarding use of remote control

 

=Do not expose the remote control to shock.

 

In addition, do not expose the remote

 

control to liquids, and do not place in an

 

area with high humidity.

 

=Do not install or place the remote control

 

under direct sunlight. The heat may cause

 

deformation of the unit.

 

=The remote control may not work properly if

 

the remote sensor window of the main unit

+ +

is under direct sunlight or strong lighting. In

 

such a case, change the angle of the

 

lighting or TV set, or operate the remote

 

control closer to the remote sensor window.

 

This above illustration is for reference only. The remote sensor may be in different locations on different models.

Basic Operation

Connecting to your Power Supply

The JE1507 is equipped with a polarized AC power cord plug (a plug having one blade JE1507 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 still fails to fit, contact your electrician to have a suitable outlet installed. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug by forcing it in.

The JE1507DC is equipped with a 12V DC connector for use in a vehicle. Connect the red JE1507DC wire to the 12V DC connection and the black wire to the ground terminal or clean

unpainted metal part of chassis..

Selecting Channels

This television is capable of receiving the full range of cable-TV channels available today, from the most digital and HDTV channels, to the traditional analog channels.

As the transition toward full digital TV continues, some cable-TV systems in the USA will have a mixture of analog and digital channels in their lineups. So in most situations the ATSC PSIP channel number is composed of a major channel number and a minor channel number. The major channel number is same for both analog and digital channels (It is equal to the NTSC channel number for existing broadcasters). An analog channel usually has a minor channel number of zero, while a digital channel usually has a minor channel number of 1, 2 or larger.

You can select analog channels in several ways.

Care and Maintenance

About After-Image

The extended use of fixed image program material can cause a permanent after-image

on the screen.

 

This background image is viewable on normal programs in the form of a stationary fixed

 

image. This type of irreversible screen deterioration can be limited by observing the

 

following steps:

 

A. Reduce the brightness/contrast setting to a minimum viewing level.

 

B. Do not display the fixed image for extended periods of time.

 

C. Turn the power off when not in actual use.

 

Important Information Regarding Use of Video Games, Computers,

 

Captions or Other Fixed Image Displays.

 

● Do not allow a still picture to be displayed for an extended period, as this can cause a

 

permanent after-image to remain on the screen.

 

Examples of still pictures include logos, video games, computer images, teletext and

 

images displayed in 4:3 mode.

 

CAUTIONS:

 

● The permanent after-image on the screen resulting from fixed image use is not an

 

operating defect and as such is not covered by the warranty.

 

● This product is not designed to display fixed images for extended periods of time.

Cleaning and

Maintenance
