Make sure that the corresponding cables are connected to each terminal. Connecting other cables may result in a malfunction.

INPUT2 has two video input terminals, VIDEO and S-VIDEO terminals. If your external device has an S-VIDEO terminal, S-VIDEO connection is recommended. S-VIDEO provides a finer, more detailed picture. If both terminals are connected, S-VIDEO terminal takes a priority.

For the INPUT1 mode, picture can be displayed only when 480I, 480P, 576I, 576P, 720P or 1080I signal is received.

Outputting Video and Audio (Video Output)

You can output video and audio signals from the LCD TV set through the INPUT3/OUTPUT terminals. (See page 25.)

• When using INPUT3/OUTPUT as an output terminal, select “SETUP” in the Menu and set “INPUT3 SELECT” to “OUT”.

A

When using the S-VIDEO input for INPUT2 or COMPONENT input for INPUT1, no video signal will be made to the INPUT3/OUTPUT terminal, but audio signal will be made for connection to external audio systems.

V-CHIP Settings

V-CHIP

This function allows TV programs to be restricted and TV usage to be controlled based on FCC data. It prevents children from watching violent or sexual scenes that may be harmful.

Restriction of TV programs includes two ratings that contain information about the program: the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of

America) rating and the TV Parental Guidelines. The MPAA rating is restricted by age. TV Parental Guidelines are restricted by age and content.

Since a TV program may use either the MPAA rating or the TV Guidelines, both should be adjusted for complete control.

Canadian Rating Systems

The TV rating systems in Canada are based on the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) policy on violence in television programing.

While violence is the most important content element to be rated, the structure developed takes into consideration other program content like language, nudity, sexuality and mature themes.

When setting the V-CHIP on the Canadian system you can choose either the Canadian English ratings or the Canadian French ratings.

Canadian English ratings

Rating

Description

CChildren: Intended for younger children under the age of 8 years. Pays careful attention to themes that could threaten their sense of security and well-being.

Children over 8 years old: Contains no portrayal of violence as the preferred, acceptable, C8e or only way to resolve conflict; nor encourage children to imitate dangerous acts which they

may see on the screen.

GGeneral: Considered acceptable for all age groups. Appropriate viewing for the entire family,

contains very little violence, physical, verbal or emotional.

age-based

 

 

PG

Parental Guidance: Intended for a general audience, but may not be suitable for younger

 

children (under the age of 8) because it could contain controversial themes or issues.

 

14e

Over 14 Years: Could contain themes where violence is one of the dominant elements of the

 

storyline, but it must be integral to the development of plot or character. Language usage

 

 

could be profane and nudity present within the context of the theme.

 

 

Adults: Intended for viewers 18 years and older and might contain depictions of violence,

 

18e

which while related to the development of plot, character or themes, are intended for adult

 

 

viewing. Could contain graphic language and portrayals of sex and nudity.

Canadian French ratings

Closed Caption may malfunction (white blocks, strange characters, etc.) if signal conditions are poor or if there are problems at the broadcast source. This does not necessarily indicate a problem with the LCD TV set.

If any button is pressed to call up the on-screen display while viewing a Closed Caption broadcast, the closed captions will disappear momentarily.

If no TEXT broadcast is being received while viewing in the TEXT mode, the screen may become blank for some programs. Should this occur, switch the CLOSED CAPTION mode to “OFF”.

When the unit is used in a low temperature space (e.g. room, office), the picture may leave trails or appear slightly delayed. This is not a malfunction, and the unit will recover when the temperature returns to normal.

Do not leave the unit in a hot or cold location. Also, do not leave the unit in a location exposed to direct sunlight or near a heater, as this may cause the cabinet to deform and the LCD panel to malfunction.

Storage temperature: –4°F to +140°F (–20°C to +60°C)
