    WHAT IS ENERGY STAR
    TVs and VCRs use energy both when they are on and when they are off. Americans spend more than $1
    billion a year on energy consumed by TVs and VCRs when they are not in use. The new ENERGY
    STAR ® models will reduce that energy “leakage” by up to 75 percent. Ultimately, this will mean more than
    $500 million a year in energy savings for consumers.
    The energy savings will help reduce the burning of fossil fuels and the related carbon dioxide pollution
    that contributes to global warming. If every American family replaced their TVs and VCRs with ENERGY
    ®
    STAR models, it would reduce carbon dioxide emissions by five million tons every year — equivalent to
    eliminating the pollution from more than one million cars.
    By using ENERGY STAR ® products, you will save money on your electric bills and use less energy. That
    makes good economic sense and it’s good for our environment.

    REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT
    WARNING: TO
    EXPOSE THIS APPLIANCE TO WET LOCATIONS.
    The lightning flash with
    arrowhead within a triangle is
    intended to tell the user that
    parts inside the product are a
    risk of electric shock to
    persons.
    CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF
    ELECTRIC SHOCK,
    DO NOT REMOVE COVER (OR BACK).
    NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE.
    REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE
    PERSONNEL.

    The exclamation point within a
    triangle is intended to tell the
    user that important operating
    and servicing instructions are
    in the papers with the
    appliance.

    “Note to CATV system installer: This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer’s attention
    to Article 820-40 of the National Electrical Code that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in
    particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building,
    as close to the point of cable entry as practical.”

    rules for its installation, use and servicing.
    1.

    Unplug this television equipment from the wall outlet before cleaning.

    2.

    Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.

    3.

    Do not use attachments not recommended by the television equipment manufacturer as they may cause
    hazards.

    4.

    Do not use this television equipment near water — for example, near a bath tub, washbowl, kitchen sink or
    laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, etc.

    5.

    Do not place this equipment on an unstable cart, stand, or table. The television equipment may fall, causing
    serious injury to a child or an adult, and serious damage to the equipment. Use only with a cart or stand
    recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the television equipment.

    6.

    Television equipment and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops,
    excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the equipment and cart combination to
    overturn.

    7.

    Wall or shelf mounting should follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and should use a
    mounting kit approved by the manufacturer.

    8.

    Slots and openings in the cabinet and the back or bottom are provided for ventilation. To
    insure reliable operation of the television equipment and to protect it from overheating, these openings must
    not be blocked or covered. This television equipment should not be placed in a built-in insulation such as a

    Before Operating Your Television
    Location
    • For normal operation, your TV should be located in an area of the room where cool adequate ventilation
    is provided. Do not place the back of the television set in a place where free airflow will be restricted.
    • Any magnetic force may disturb the color picture. Make sure that magnets, electric clocks, toys using
    magnets or any other magnetic substance, such as iron are kept well away from the TV set.
    Power
    Your TV operates on 120 Volts, 60 Hz (normal household current) and has a polarized plug. If you are
    unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. Should it fail to fit, contact an
    electrician. Do not defeat the safety feature of the polarized plug.
    Note:

    • If the set is not going to be used for a long period, such as during a vacation, unplug the set from the
    wall outlet to economize power. (If the TV set is plugged in, a slight current still flows, even with the
    POWER BUTTON in the OFF position.)
    • Lines and other noise may appear in TV broadcast images when an FM tuner or radio is located near
    the TV and both radio and TV broadcasts are being received. Should such noise appear, turn off the
    radio.
    • If you are listening to an AM broadcast, turn the TV off. AM broadcast signals may not be received
    due to interference from the TV.



    Before using the television, prepare the Remote Control
    To use the remote control, insert batteries first.

    Cover

    Pull up

    • With your thumbnail, pull up the slit as indicated by the arrow to remove the battery cover. Insert two
    batteries (size “AA”). Be sure to match the battery e/d terminals with the e/d marks inside the
    compartment.

    Antenna Connections
    Antennas
    • The antenna requirements for good color television reception are more important than those for black
    & white television reception. For this reason, a good quality outdoor antenna is strongly recommended.
    The following is a brief explanation of the type of connections that are provided with the various
    antenna systems:
    1. A 75-ohm system is generally a round cable with
    F-type connector that can easily be attached to
    a terminal without tools (not supplied).
    2. A 300-ohm system is a flat “twin-lead” cable that
    can be attached to a 75-ohm terminal through a
    300/75-ohm ADAPTOR (not supplied).

    75-ohm coaxial cable

    CABLE TV (CATV) CONNECTION
    • A 75 ohm coaxial cable connector is built into the set for easy hookup. When connecting the 75 ohm
    coaxial cable to the set, screw the 75 ohm cable to the COAXIAL CABLE CONNECTOR.
    • Some cable TV companies offer “premium pay channels”. Since the signals of these premium pay
    channels are scrambled, a cable TV converter/descrambler is generally provided to the subscriber by
    the cable TV company. This converter/descrambler is necessary for normal viewing of the scrambled
    channels. (Set your TV on channel 3 or 4. Typically one of these channels is used. If this is unknown,
    consult your cable TV company.) For more specific instructions on installing cable TV, consult your
    cable TV company. One possible method of utilizing the converter/descrambler provided by your
    cable TV company is explained below.
    Please note: RF switch equipped with position A/B (not provided) is required.
    “A” position on the RF switch (not supplied) : You can view all unscrambled channels using the TV’s
    channel keys.
    “B” position on the RF switch (not supplied) : You can view the scrambled channels via the converter/
    descrambler using the converter’s channel keys.

    Closed Caption


    How to set CLOSED CAPTION
    • Your TV is equipped with an internal Closed Caption decoder. “Closed
    Caption” is a system which allows conversations, narration, and sound
    effects in TV programs and home videos to appear as captions on the
    TV screen (see the illustration).
    • Not all the programs and videos will offer closed captioning. Please
    look for the “
    ” symbol to ensure that captions will be shown.
    • Closed Caption broadcast can be viewed in two modes: CAPTION
    and TEXT. For each mode, two channels are available, CH1 and CH2:
    The CAPTION mode shows subscripts of dialogs and commentaries
    of TV dramas and news programs while allowing clear view of the
    picture.
    The TEXT mode displays over the picture other various information
    (such as TV program schedule, weather forecast, etc.) that is
    independent of the TV programs.

    Note:

    mode automatically. Pressing MUTE again will return the set to its previous condition.
    • 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
    your TV.
    • 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
    dark and blank for some programs. Should this occur, switch the Closed Caption mode to “OFF”.

    • This function allows you to restrict TV programs and also allows you to control TV usage based on
    FCC data. This function is to prevent your children from watching violence or sexual scenes that may
    be harmful.
    • Restriction of TV programs includes two characters that contain information about the program’s MPAA
    rating and the TV Parental Guidelines. MPAA is restricted by age. TV Parental Guidelines are restricted
    by age and contents.

    INFORMACIÓN IMPORTANTE
    Existen dos razones importantes para registrar dentro del plazo límite la garantía de su nuevo televisor
    SHARP, mediante la TARJETA DE REGISTRO incluida con el aparato.
    PRIMERA – GARANTÍA
    Garantiza al cliente la recepción inmediata de todas las prestaciones de consumidor en cuanto a piezas, servicio
    técnico y mano de obra aplicable a su adquisición.

    SEGUNDA – ACTA DE SEGURIDAD DE PRODUCTOS DE CONSUMIDOR
    Con el fin de garantizar al cliente la recepción puntual de cualquier notificación de seguridad sobre inspección,
    modificación o cancelación que se le pueda solicitar a SHARP bajo el Acta de seguridad de productos de
    consumidor de 1972. LEA CUIDADOSAMENTE LA CLÁUSULA “GARANTÍA LIMITADA” DE LA ÚLTIMA PÁGINA.

    ¿QUÉ ES ENERGY STAR ® ?
    Los televisores y las videograbadoras utilizan energía cuando están encendidos ó apagados. Los norteamericanos
    gastan más de 1 billón de dólares al año en la energía que consumen televisores y videograbadoras cuando no
    se encuentran en uso. Los nuevos modelos ENERGY STAR ® reducen esa “fuga” de energía hasta en un 75
    por ciento. Esto implica más de 500 millones de dólares al año en ahorro de energía para los consumidores.
    El ahorro de energía ayuda a reducir el consumo de combustibles fósiles y por tanto la contaminación por
    dióxido de carbono que contribuye al calentamiento global. Si cada familia norteamericana sustituyera sus
    televisores y videograbadoras por modelos ENERGY STAR ®, se reducirían las emisiones de dióxido de carbono
    en cinco millones de toneladas cada año (equivalente a eliminar la contaminación procedente de más de un
    millón de automóviles).
    El uso de productos ENERGY STAR ® permite reducir el monto de las facturas de energía eléctrica y consumir
    menos energía. De este modo ahorrará dinero y ayudará a proteger el medio ambiente.

    Desenchufe el televisor del tomacorriente antes de limpiarlo.
    No utilice líquidos ni aerosoles de limpieza. Para limpiar el televisor utilice un paño húmedo.
    No utilice accesorios que no los recomiende el fabricante del televisor porque podrían causar peligros.
    No utilice el televisor cerca del agua – por ejemplo, cerca de una bañera, lavado, fregadero o lavadora, en
    un sótano húmedo, cerca de una piscina, etc.
    No utilice este televisor sobre un carrito, un soporte o una mesa inestables. El televisor podría caerse
    causando serías heridas a niños o adultos, y, por supuesto, el aparato se estropearía. Ponga el televisor
    solamente sobre un carrito o soporte recomendado por el fabricante, o vendido junto con
    el televisor.
    La combinación de carrito y televisor debe moverse con mucho cuidado. Las paradas
    rápidas, la fuerza excesiva y las superficies irregulares pueden ser la causa de que la
    combinación de televisor y carrito se volteen.
    Cuando instale el televisor en una pared o en una estantería siga las instrucciones del
    fabricante, y utilice el kit de montaje aprobado por el fabricante.
    Las ranuras y aberturas de la caja y del panel posterior o inferior sirven para la ventilación del aparato, para
    que éste funcione bien y para evitar que se caliente. Estas aberturas no deben taparse nunca. Este televisor
    no debe colocarse en un lugar cerrado (como un estante para libros) si éste no dispone de la ventilación
    apropiada.
    Las aberturas no deben taparse nunca con un paño u otro material; y las aberturas del panel inferior no
    deben taparse tampoco colocando el televisor sobre una cama, sofá, alfombra u otra superficie similar.
    Este televisor no debe ponerse nunca cerca o encima de un radiador u otro aparato que produzca calor.
    Este televisor sólo debe funcionar con la fuente de corriente indicada en la etiqueta del fabricante. Si no
    está seguro acerca del tipo de corriente de su hogar, póngase en contacto con el concesionario de quien
    adquirió el televisor o con la compañía eléctrica local.
    En el caso de equipos de televisión diseñados para funcionar con baterías, consulte las instrucciones de
    uso.
    Como medida de seguridad, el equipo de televisión está equipado con un enchufe polarizado de dos hilos.

    15.

    Para proteger aún más este televisor durante tormentas eléctricas o cuando se deje sin atender y sin
    utilizar durante largos periodos de tiempo, desenchufe el cable de alimentación del tomacorriente y
    desconecte la antena. Esto evitará que el aparato pueda estropearse debido a los relámpagos y la
    sobretensión en la línea de alimentación.
    Un sistema de antena exterior no debe ubicarse cerca de líneas de alimentación elevadas, ni cerca de
    luces eléctricas o circuitos de alimentación. Tampoco debe ubicarse donde pueda caer sobre tales líneas
    o circuitos de alimentación. Cuando instale un sistema de antena exterior, tenga muchísimo cuidado
    para no tocar las líneas o circuitos de alimentación porque el contacto podría causar un accidente mortal.
    No sobrecargue los tomacorrientes ni los cables de extensión porque esto podría causar un incendio o
    descarga eléctrica.
    No meta nunca ningún objeto en el interior del televisor porque podría tocar piezas con alta tensión o
    causar un cortocircuito con otras piezas causando un incendio o descarga eléctrica. No derrame nunca
    ningún tipo de líquido sobre el televisor.
    No trate de reparar el televisor usted mismo porque al abrir o quitar las tapas podría exponerse a una
    descarga de tensión u otros peligros. Las reparaciones debe realizarlas el personal de servicio CALIFICADO.
    Desenchufe este televisor del tomacorriente y solicite el servicio de un técnico calificado cuando se
    produzcan las condiciones siguientes:
    A. Cuando el cable de la alimentación o el enchufe estén estropeados.
    B. Cuando haya derramado un líquido sobre el televisor.
    C. Si el televisor ha quedado expuesto a la lluvia o al agua.
    D. Si el televisor no funciona normalmente siguiendo las instrucciones de utilización. Ajuste solamente
    los controles indicados en las instrucciones de utilización. Un ajuste inadecuado de otros controles
    podría estropear el aparato y, entonces, sería necesario acudir a un técnico CALIFICADO para que
    éste lo repare y lo devuelva a su condición normal.
    E. Si el televisor se ha caído o la caja se ha estropeado.
    F. Cuando las prestaciones del televisor cambien considerablemente será necesario llamar al servicio
    de reparaciones.
    Al finalizar cualquier servicio o reparación de este televisor, pida al técnico de servicio que realice
    comprobaciones de seguridad rutinarias para determinar si el televisor puede funcionar sin causar ningún
    problema.
    Cuando sea necesario cambiar piezas, cerciórese de que el técnico de servicio utiliza las piezas de

    INFORMATIONS IMPORTANTES
    Deux raisons importantes d’enregistrer rapidement la garantie de votre nouveau téléviseur SHARP à
    l’aide de la carte d’enregistrement (REGISTRATION CARD) incluse dans le colis :
    LA PREMIERE – LA GARANTIE
    Grâce à elle, vous obtiendrez immédiatement les avantages client concernant la garantie des pièces, du
    service et des travaux applicable à votre achat.
    LA DEUXIEME – LA LOI SUR LA SECURITE DU PRODUIT DE CONSOMMATION (CONSUMER
    PRODUCT SAFETY ACT)
    Grâce à elle, vous recevrez rapidement un avis de sécurité lors du contrôle, de la modification ou du rappel de votre
    produit que SHARP peut être amené à fournir conformément à la loi de 1972 sur la sécurité du produit de consommation.
    LISEZ ATTENTIVEMENT LE PARAGRAPHE «GARANTIE LIMITEE» DE LA DERNIÈRE PAGE.

    ENERGY STAR ® : QU’EST-CE QUEC’EST
    Les téléviseurs et les magnétoscopes utilisent de l’énergie lorsqu’ils sont allumés et éteints. Les Américains dépensent
    plus d’1 milliard de dollars par an en énergie consommée par les téléviseurs et les magnétoscopes une fois éteints. Les
    nouveaux modèles ENERGY STAR ® réduisent jusqu’à 75 % ce gaspillage d’énergie. Ce qui représente finalement
    plus de 500 millions de dollars par an d’économie d’énergie pour les consommateurs.
    Ces économies aident à réduire la combustion des énergies fossiles et la pollution au gaz carbonique associée, qui
    contribue au réchauffement de la planète. Si toutes les familles américaines remplaçaient leurs téléviseurs et leurs
    magnétoscopes par des modèles ENERGY STAR ®, les émissions de gaz carbonique seraient réduites de cinq millions
    de tonnes par an — ce qui reviendrait à éliminer la pollution émise par plus d’un million de voitures.
    En utilisant les produits ENERGY STAR ®, vous économiserez également de l’argent sur vos factures d’électricité et
    vous utiliserez moins d’énergie. Un peu de bon sens économique au profit de notre environnement !

    N’utilisez pas cette télévision à proximité d’eau — par exemple, près d’une baignoire, d’un lavabo, d’un
    évier ou d’un bac à laver, dans une cave humide ou près d’une piscine, etc.

    5.

    Ne placez pas cet équipement sur un chariot, un support ou une table instable. La télévision peut tomber
    et provoquer de graves lésions à toute personne et causer de sérieux dommages à l’équipement. Utilisez
    uniquement un support ou un chariot recommandé par le fabricant ou vendu avec la
    télévision.

    6.

    L’ensemble télévision-chariot doit être déplacé délicatement. Les arrêts brusques, une
    force excessive et des surfaces inégales peuvent renverser l’ensemble.

    7.

    L’installation au mur ou sur une tablette doit être réalisée conformément aux instructions
    du fabricant et à l’aide d’un kit de montage approuvé par ce dernier.

    8.

    Les fentes et les ouvertures du châssis à l’arrière ou dans la partie inférieure sont prévus pour la ventilation.
    Pour garantir un fonctionnement fiable de la télévision et pour la protéger de toute surchauffe, ces ouvertures
    ne doivent être ni obturées, ni recouvertes. La télévision ne doit pas être placée dans un endroit encastré
    tel qu’une bibliothèque, sauf si une ventilation adéquate est prévue.

    9.

    Les ouvertures ne doivent jamais être recouvertes par un chiffon ou autre et celles de la partie inférieure
    ne doivent jamais être obturées si vous placez la télévision sur un lit, un sofa, un tapis ou toute surface
    similaire. Cette télévision ne doit être placée ni à proximité d’un radiateur ou d’un registre de chaleur, ni
    dessus.

    10.

    Cette télévision doit être alimentée uniquement par le type d’alimentation électrique indiqué sur l’étiquette.
    Si vous n’êtes pas sûr du type d’alimentation de votre domicile, consultez votre revendeur de télévision
    ou la compagnie d’électricité locale (EDF en France).
    Pour la télévision conçue pour fonctionner sur batterie, reportez-vous au mode d’emploi.

    11.

    Du point de vue de la sécurité, la télévision est équipée d’une fiche polarisée à 2 fils (une lame plus
    importante que l’autre). La fiche polarisée à 2 fils ne pénètre dans la prise électrique que dans un seul
    sens.
    Si la fiche ne correspond pas à la prise, demandez à votre électricien de remplacer la prise, elle doit être
    obsolète. Ne modifiez pas la fiche et ne désactivez pas cette fonction de sécurité.

    12.

    Ne posez rien sur le cordon d’alimentation. Ne placez pas la télévision dans un emplacement où le
    cordon d’alimentation est susceptible d’être endommagé par le passage répété de personnes.

    PRÉCAUTIONS IMPORTANTES (Suite)
    13.

    Respectez tous les avertissements et instructions mentionnés sur la télévision.

    14.

    Si une antenne extérieure est raccordée à la télévision, veillez à ce que le système d’antenne soit relié à
    la terre de façon à fournir une protection vis-à-vis des poussées de tension et des charges électrostatiques
    accumulées. La section 810 du National Electrical Code fournit des informations relatives à une mise à la
    terre correcte de la potence et de la structure portante, à une mise à la terre du fil d’entrée à une unité de
    décharge d’antenne, aux dimensions des conducteurs de terre, à l’emplacement de l’unité de décharge
    d’antenne, au raccordement des prises de terre ainsi qu’à leurs exigences.

    15.

    Pour tout ajout de protection à votre télévision en cas de foudre ou lorsque elle reste en veille et inutilisée
    pendant de longues périodes, débranchez-la et déconnectez l’antenne. Vous éviterez ainsi des dommages
    à votre équipement suite à la foudre et des poussées de tension.

    16.

    Un système d’antenne extérieure ne doit pas être situé à proximité de lignes aériennes ou d’autres
    groupes électrogènes ou circuits électriques ou dans des emplacements où l’antenne pourrait tomber sur
    ce type de lignes ou circuits. Lors de l’installation d’un système d’antenne extérieure, faites extrêmement
    attention à ne pas entrer en contact avec ces lignes ou circuits, car cela pourrait vous être fatal.

    17.

    Ne surchargez pas les prises et les prolongateurs de ligne afin d’éviter tout risque d’incendie ou
    d’électrocution.

    18.

    N’introduisez jamais d’objets à travers les fentes du châssis, car ils pourraient entrer en contact avec des
    points de tension dangereux ou des pièces court-circuitées et provoquer ainsi un incendie ou une
    électrocution. Ne répandez jamais de liquides sur la télévision.

    19.

    N’essayez pas de réparer vous-même votre télévision. L’ouverture ou le retrait des capots peut vous
    exposer à une tension dangereuse ou à d’autres risques. Confiez toutes les opérations de maintenance
    à un personnel qualifié.

    20.

    Lorsque vous êtes confronté aux situations suivantes, débranchez la télévision et confiez toutes les
    opérations de maintenance à un personnel qualifié :
    A. lorsque le cordon d’alimentation ou la fiche est endommagé ou effiloché ;
    B. si du liquide a été répandu sur/dans la télévision ;
    C. si la télévision a été exposée à la pluie ou à l’eau ;
    D. si la télévision ne fonctionne pas normalement même en respectant le mode d’emploi. Réglez
    uniquement les commandes abordées par le mode d’emploi. Des réglages inappropriés d’autres
    commandes peuvent occasionner des dommages et nécessiteront ensuite, dans la plupart des cas,
    une intervention plus importante d’un technicien qualifié pour que la télévision fonctionne
    normalement ;
    E. si la télévision a été renversée ou que le châssis est endommagé ;
    F. lorsque la télévision présente une altération visible des performances — cela indique un besoin de
    maintenance.

    21.

    Pour toute maintenance ou réparation de la télévision, demandez au technicien de réaliser des contrôles
    de sécurité classiques afin de déterminer si la télévision est en bon état de marche.

    22.

    Lorsqu’un remplacement de pièces se révèle nécessaire, veillez à ce que le technicien utilise des pièces
    de rechange spécifiées par le fabricant et qu’elles aient les mêmes caractéristiques que la pièce d’origine.
    Des remplacements non autorisés peuvent occasionner un incendie, une électrocution ou d’autres risques.
