Precautions When Displaying a Still Image


A still image may cause permanent damage to the TV screen.

• Digital Ready TV: When you
select the regular screen (4:3)
mode to watch an SD-grade
digital broadcast (and the set-top
box output is 480p).
Although digital broadcasting must be in the
wide screen (16:9) HD format, broadcasters
sometimes show programs made originally
in the regular screen format (4:3) by
converting the signals into digital form, in
which case the left and right side edges of
the screen are cropped.
Do not leave the screen in pause mode for
extended periods of time as you may
experience temporary or permanent image
burn.
Note : If the borders at the left, right and the
center of the screen remain fixed for
an extended period of time, the
amount of light transmission will also
remain varied and as a result the
borders may leave traces.• Digital Ready TV: When you
select the wide screen (16:9)
mode to watch an SD-grade
digital broadcast (and the set-top
box output is 1080i).
• Digital Ready TV: When the
TV receives HD-grade signals
(and the set-top box output is 1080i).
When you watch a digital HD-grade broadcast
on a regular (4:3) TV with the screen size

able to watch the program but the top and
bottom edges of the screen will be cropped.
Do not leave the screen in pause mode for
extended periods of time as you may
experience temporary or permanent image
burn.
Note : If the borders at the top, bottom and
the center of the screen remain fixed
for an extended period of time, the
amount of light transmission will also
remain varied and as a result the
borders may leave traces.

• Integrated Digital TV
(Wide-screen): When the TV
receives SD-grade (regular)

INSTALLATION

Connecting VHF and UHF Antennas

If your antenna has a set of leads that
look like this, see “Antennas with
300-ohm Flat Twin Leads” below.



If your antenna has one lead that looks

like this, see “Antennas with 75-ohm
Round Leads” on page 7.


If you have two antennas, see “Separate
VHF and UHF Antennas” on page 7.

Antennas with 300-ohm Flat Twin Leads

If you are using an off-air antenna (such as a roof antenna or “rabbit ears”) that has
300-ohm twin flat leads, follow the directions below.

1

Place the wires from
the twin leads under
the screws on a 30075
ohm adaptor (not
supplied). Use a
screwdriver to tighten
the screws.


2

Plug the adaptor into
the TV ANTENNA
terminal on the
bottom of the back
panel.

Separate VHF and UHF Antennas

If you have two separate antennas for your TV (one VHF and one UHF), you must
combine the two antenna signals before connecting the antennas to the TV. This
procedure requires an optional combiner-adaptor (available at most electronics shops).

1

Connect both antenna
leads to the combiner.


2

Plug the combiner
