Not all features (and drawings) discussed in this manual will necessarily match those found with your television system. This is normal and does not require that you contact your dealer or request service. AutoChron, AutoLock, AutoPicture, AutoSound, M-Link, and ImageMax are trademarks of Philips Consumer Electronics Company. Copyright © 2000 Philips Consumer Electronics Company. All rights reserved. 4 FEATURES Audio/Video Jack Panel allows direct connections with VCRs, DVDs, or other devices, providing quality TV picture and sound playback. Audio Volume Leveler (AVL) Control keeps the TV sound at an even level. Peaks and valleys that occur during program changes or commercial breaks are reduced, making for a more consistent, comfortable sound. AutoChronª automatically sets the right time of day and maintains it with digital precision through brownouts, power failures, and even Daylight Savings Time adjustments. AutoLockª allows you to block the viewing of certain channels or programs with certain ratings if you do not want your children to view inappropriate materials. Auto Programming scans (when activated) for all available channels from regular antenna or cable signals and stores only active broadcast stations in the TVÕs memory. AutoPictureª allows you to change the picture settings (color, tint, contrast, etc.) for various types of programming, such as sports, movies, multimedia (games), or weak signals with the push of one button. AutoSoundª allows you to select from three factory-set controls and a personal control that you set according to your own preferences through the onscreen Sound menu. The three factory-set controls (Voice, Music, and Theatre) enable you to tailor the TV sound so as to enhance the particular programming you are watching. Channel Edit allows you to add or delete channels from the list stored in the TVÕs memory. Channel Edit makes it easy to limit or expand the number of channels that are available to you when you press the Channel (+) or (Ð) buttons on your remote control. Closed Captioning allows the viewer to read TV program dialogue or voice conversations as onscreen text. ImageMaxª helps you sharpen the picture quality by making dark portions of the picture darker and light portions brighter. Infrared Remote Control works your TV and other remote-controlled devices, such as VCRs, DVD players, cable converters, and satellite receivers. Infrared Remote (IR) Blaster works with the M-Link feature to enable your TV to ÒlearnÓ the remote-control commands of new Philips devices or multibrand devices that you have connected to your TV. After the commands are learned, you can use your TV remote control to operate and control all of the devices. M-Linkª allows you to convert your TV into a home-cinema control center composed of up to six devices (including an audio amplifier). You activate the devices by pressing macro buttons and control the devices by pressing ÒhotÓ buttons on your remote control. Choose from cable box, digital set top box, DVD (digital video disc), laser disc (LD), satellite digital TV, VCD (video compact disc), and VCR (video cassette recorder) devices. Onscreen Menu shows helpful messages and instructions for setting TV feature controls (can be viewed in English, French, or Spanish). Sleep Timer automatically turns the TV OFF after a set amount of time that you choose. Standard Broadcast (VHF/UHF) or Cable TV (CATV) channel capability allows for viewing by antenna or cable. Stereo capability, including a built-in audio amplifier and twin-speaker system, allows for the reception of TV programs broadcast in stereo sound. Surf Button allows you to easily switch among only the channels that are of interest to you (the ones that you have programmed into the TVÕs Surf control through the onscreen menu). Timer allows you to set your TV to turn itself ON and OFF once or daily like an alarm clock. 5 QUICK USE AND INSTALLATION GUIDE Use the simple Quick Use and Installation Guide (supplied with your TV information packet) for details on: • Cable/Antenna Hookups • Automatic Channel Programming • Channel Editing • Setting the TV’s Clock Automatically (AutoChron™) • Basic Operation of the TV and Remote Control • Selection of the Onscreen Menu Language QUICK USE AND INSTALLATION GUIDE TABLE OF CONTENTS 11 12 • Getting Started 1 23 Warning/Precautions ..................................1 Hooking Up Your TV.................................1 Basic TV and Remote Control Operation .................2 How to Use the “INSTALL” Controls ..................3-4 Using the Language Control......................................3 Setting the TV to Auto Program Channels................3 Setting the TV for a Cable or Antenna Signal...........3 Using the Channel Edit Control ................................4 Setting the Channel Name Control............................4 How to use the AutoChron control............................4 910 8 4 7 Color Television and Remote Control ANTENNA OR CABLE TV ANT(ENNA) A & B INPUTS Y our TV has two separate ANT(enna)/Cable inputs on the rear of the set. These two signal inputs offer convenient hook-up options for both normal TV program viewing and Picture-In-Picture (PIP) features. The ANT(enna) A input is intended for use and viewing on the TV’s main screen. Your home’s primary Antenna, or Cable TV signal, should be connected to this input for normal TV setup, use and feature operation. 6 5 For details on product registration, warranty, and service refer to the other literature included with your TV information packet. Please retain all these materials and keep them handy for future reference. WARNING: TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD DO NOT EXPOSE THIS UNIT TO RAIN OR EXCESSIVE MOISTURE. NOTE: This Quick Use Guide may be used with other models. Some of the features listed may or may not apply to your TV. SMART HELP BEGIN A typical ANT(enna) A and PIP ANT B connection (using a common signal source and an optional Signal Splitter): If your Antenna or Cable TV signal has a round cable connector (75 ohm) on the end, then you're ready to connect it to the 75ohm Signal Splitter. If your antenna has flat twinlead wire (300 ohm), you first need to attach the antenna wires to the screws on a 300 to 75 ohm adapter before connecting to the 75ohm Signal Splitter. Connect your Antenna or Cable TV signal to the single 75 ohm input plug on the twoway Signal Splitter (optional). Then connect two lengths of RF Coaxial Cable to the two Output plugs on the two-way Signal Splitter (F-type connector on both ends). Connect the twin Output plugs on the Signal Splitter to the ANT A and PIP ANT B inputs on the rear of the TV. Push the round connector end of the RF Coaxial Cable onto the ANT(enna) plug and screw it down tight (if using threaded cables). Remember, be sure to set the TV for the type signal you've connected (see "TUNER" section on page 3 of this Guide.) Your TV can set itself to select only the channel numbers on your Cable system (see “Auto Program" page 3). If you use a Cable Converter box, set the TV to the same channel as the converter's CH 3/4 switch (on the rear of the converter.) Combination VHF/UHF Antenna Back of TV 300 to 75Ω Adapter Twin Lead Wire OR - Outdoor or Indoor Antenna receives normal broadcast channels 2-13 (VHF) and 14-69 (UHF).

When programmed by the viewer, a TV with AutoLock™ can respond to the content advisories and block program content that may be found objectionable (such as offensive language, violence, sexual situations, etc.). This is a great feature to censor the type of programming children may watch. In the AutoLock™ section, you’ll learn how to block channels and programming that is not rated, is unrated, or has no rating. You will also find out how to turn these blocking features ON or OFF. Following are brief explanations of some terms and ratings related to the AutoLock™ feature. AutoLock™ offers various Blocking Options from which to choose: BLOCKING: The BLOCKING control is what can be thought of as the Òmaster switchÓ for AutoLockª. This control affects the settings you have chosen for blocking programs according to movie ratings or TV ratings, or for blocking programs that have no rating or are unrated. When the BLOCKING control is OFF, the blocking or censoring of programs is disabled. When the BLOCKING control is ON, blocking will occur according to the settings you have chosen. BLOCK UNRATED: ALL unrated programs will be blocked if this feature is set to ON. UNRATED programming is encoded with information from the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) or TV broadcasters, but it does not have a specific rating. In other words, the MPAA or the TV broadcasters have chosen not to assign a rating to the programming. NO RATING: ALL programming with no content advisory data can be blocked if NO RATING is set to ON. Programming that has No Rating is not encoded with any rating information from the MPAA or the Parental Guidelines. Any programming could fall into this category.

When your TV is continuously used with such a source, the pattern of the nonmoving portion of the game (or other source) can leave a permanent image on the picture tube. When youÕre not using the video source, turn it OFF. Also, regularly alternate the use of such video sources with normal TV viewing. • Check the TV power cord. Unplug the TV, wait 10 seconds, then reinsert the plug into the outlet and push the POWER button again. • Check that the outlet is not on a wall switch. • Be sure the fuse is not blown on the AC power strip, if one is being used. • • • • Check antenna connections. Are they properly secured to the TV's ANT 75Ω plug? Check the TUNER MODE control for the correct tuner setting. Try running the Auto Program feature to find all available channels. Press the AV button on the remote to make sure the correct signal source is selected (AV 1 [or CVI], AV 2, AV 3, or S-VIDEO). • Check the VOLUME buttons. • Check the MUTE button on the remote control. • Check the SPEAKER onscreen control. If it is in the OFF position, sound at the set will be eliminated. • If you’re attempting to hook up auxiliary equipment, check the audio jack connections. • (If applicable) Check the audio receiver for the correct operating mode. • Check the batteries. If necessary, replace them with AA Heavy Duty (Zinc Chloride) or Alkaline batteries. • Clean the remote control and the remote control sensor window on the TV. • Check the TV power cord. Unplug the TV, wait 10 seconds, then reinsert the plug into the outlet and push the POWER button again. • Be sure the fuse is not blown on the AC power strip, if one is being used. • Check to be sure the TV outlet is not on a wall switch. • Repeat channel selection. • Add the desired channel numbers (using the CHANNEL EDIT control) into the TV’s memory. • Check to be sure the TUNER MODES are set to the CABLE option and run the Auto Program feature to find all available channels. ¥ To avoid possible shock hazard, be sure the TV is unplugged from the electrical outlet before cleaning. ¥ When you are cleaning the TV, take care not to scratch or damage the screen surface (avoid wearing jewelry or using anything abrasive).
