Connecting devices to the 
OUTPUT terminal 

The signals of the images and sound you 
are currently viewing with this TV are output 
through the OUTPUT terminal. By 
connecting a VCR to the OUTPUT terminal, 
you can record the currently shown image 
and sound to that VCR. To do this, connect 
the VCR and OUTPUT terminal following 
the steps below. 

1 Connect the VIDEO jack in the 
OUTPUT terminal and the VCR’s 
VIDEO IN (video input) jack with a 
video cable. 

2 Connect the AUDIO jacks (L and R) in 
the OUTPUT terminal and the VCR’s 
AUDIO IN (audio L/R input) jacks with 
an audio cable. 

• When you turn off the TV, the signals 
from the OUTPUT terminal are also 
turned off. 

• The component signals input from the 
VIDEO-3/COMPONENT terminal 
cannot be output through the OUTPUT 
terminal. 

Connecting Headphones 

Connect the headphones with a stereo 
mini jack (of 3.5 mm in diameter) to the 
Headphone jack at the TV front panel.

Troubleshooting 


If a problem arises while you are using the TV, please read this “Troubleshooting” well 
before you request having the TV repaired. You may be able to fix it easily by yourself. For 
example, if the AC plug is disconnected from the AC outlet, or the TV aerial has problems, 
you may think there is a problem with the TV itself. 

Important: 

• This Troubleshooting guide only covers problems whose causes are not easy to 
determine. If a question arise when you are operating a function, read the page(s) 
corresponding to the operation of the function well, not this Troubleshooting guide. 

• After you have followed the Troubleshooting description or the operating description of 
the functions concerned without any success, remove the AC plug from the AC outlet 
and request a repair of your TV. Do not attempt to repair the TV by yourself or remove 
the rear cover of the TV. 


■ If you cannot turn on the TV 

• Is the AC plug connected to the AC 
outlet? 

• Is the POWER lamp lit? If not, press 
the Main power button. 

■ No picture/No sound 

• Have you chosen a TV channel whose 
reception is extremely bad? In this 
case, the BLUE BACK function will be 
activated, the entire screen becomes 
blue, and the sound is muted. In spite 
of this, if you want to view the TV 
channel, follow the description “BLUE 
BACK” on page 27 to try to change the 
BLUE BACK function setting to OFF. 

• Are your SOUND SYSTEM settings for 
the TV channels correct? 

Follow the description “SOUND 
SYSTEM button” on page 11 to try to 
solve the trouble. 

■ Poor picture 

• If noise totally obscures the picture 
(snow), the aerial or aerial cable may 
have trouble. Check the following to try 
to solve the trouble: 

Has the TV and aerial been connected 
properly? 

Has the aerial cable been damaged? 

Is the aerial pointed to the right 
direction? 

Is the aerial itself faulty? 


• If the TV or aerial receives interference 
from the other devices, stripes or noise 
may appear in the picture. Move such 
device as an amplifier, personal 
computer, or a hair drier that can 
cause interference away from your TV, 
or try changing its location. If the aerial 
suffers interference from a radio tower 
or high-voltage wire, please contact 
your local dealer. 

• If the TV receives interferences from 
signal reflecting from mountains or 
building, double-pictures (ghosting) will 
occur. 

Try to change the aerial’s direction or 
replace the antenna with the one with 
better directionality. 

• Are your COLOUR SYSTEM settings 
for the TV channels correct? Follow 
the description “COLOUR SYSTEM 
button” on page 11 to try to solve the 
trouble. 

• Has COLOUR or BRIGHT been 
controlled properly? Follow the 
description “Adjusting the picture” on 
page 20 to try to adjust them properly. 

• Videotaping teletext is not 
recommended because it may not 
record correctly. 


Troubleshooting 


• When a white and bright still image 
(such as a white dress) is displayed on 
the screen, the white part may look as 
if it were coloured. 

It is a phenomenon unavoidable due to 
the nature of the picture tube itself, and 
not due to a TV failure. 

When the picture disappears from the 
screen, the unnatural colours will also 
disappear. 

• When viewing images from 
commercially available video software 
products, or videos from videotapes 
which have been recorded improperly, 
the top of the image may be distorted. 
This is due to the condition of the video 
signal, and not because of 
malfunction. 

■ Poor sound 

• Have you adjusted BASS or TREBLE 
properly? If not, follow the description 
“Adjusting the sound” on page 25 to try 
to adjust them properly. 

• When the TV channel reception is 
poor, it can be hard to hear the stereo 
or bilingual sound. In this case, follow 
the description “STEREO / Ml” on 
page 25 to hear the sound more easily 
by changing it to a mono sound. 

■ Operation disabled 

• Have the batteries of the remote 
control become exhausted? 

Follow the description “Putting the 
batteries into the remote control” on 
page 4 and replace them with new 
batteries to try solve the problem. 

• Have you attempted to use the remote 
control at the sides or rear of the TV or 
at a location more than seven meters 
apart from the TV location? Operate 
the remote control in the front of your 
TV or a location less than seven 
meters from your TV to try to solve the 
problem. 


• When you are viewing a teletext 
programme, you cannot operate the 
menus. 

Press the TV/VIDEO button to return 
the teletext programme to the ordinary 
TV programme to try operating the 
menus. 

• Is the CHILD LOCK function set to 
ON? If the CHILD LOCK function is set 
to ON, you cannot operate the TV with 
the front control buttons of the TV. 
Follow the description “CHILD LOCK” 
on page 27 to try to set the CHILD 
LOCK function to OFF. 

• If the TV operation becomes disabled 
suddenly, press the Main power button 
on the TV and turn off the main power. 
Try to press the Main power button 
again to turn on the main power. If the 
TV returns to a normal state, it is not a 
failure. 

• The following functions do not operate 
when receiving Progressive video 
signal (525P signal). 

Remote control function: 

PIP, MULTI, FREEZE and STROBE 
button. 

MENU function: 

TINT and PULL DOWN 

■ Other concerns 

• When the AUTO SHUTOFF function 
operates, the TV is automatically 
turned off. 

If the TV is turned off suddenly, try to 
press the POWER button to turn on 
the TV once again. At this time, if the 
TV resumes a normal state, there is no 
problem. 

• If you bring a magnetized device such 
as a speaker near to your TV, a picture 
may be warped or unnatural colours 
appear at the corners of the screen. In 
this case, keep the device apart from 
your TV. If the speaker causes such 


38 



Troubleshooting 


phenomena, use the magnetic- 
shielded speaker instead. 

• A picture may be tilted due to the 
influence of the earth’s magnetism. In 
this case, use the “PICTURE TILT” on 
page 23 to complete the tilt. 

• It takes a short period of time from the 
time an operation such as changing 
channels is performed until an image is 
displayed. This is not a malfunction. 
This is the time required for the image 
to stabilize before it can be displayed. 

• The TV may emit a crackling sound 
due to a sudden change in 
temperature. It does not matter if a 
picture or sound does not show any 
abnormality. If you hear crackling 
sounds frequently while you are 
viewing the TV, other causes may be 
assumed. 

For precautionary purposes, request 
your service technician to inspect it. 

• Touching the screen may cause you 
feel a slight electric shock due to its 
static electricity. 

It is an unavoidable phenomenon due 
to the construction of the picture tube. 
It is not a problem with the TV. 

You can rest assured that this static 
discharge does not have harmful 
influence over the human body.
