or adaptor or consult your dealer. 

If nonetheless the mains plug is cut off, 
remove the fuse and dispose of the plug 
immediately, to avoid a possible shock 
hazard by inadvertent connection to the 
mains supply. 

If a new mains plug has to be fitted, then 
follow the instruction given below: 

Important

As these colours may not correspond with the 
coloured marking identifying the terminals in 
your plug proceed as follows: 

The wire which is coloured blue must be 
connected to the terminal which is marked 
with the letter N or coloured black. 

The wire which is coloured brown must be 
connected to the terminal which is marked 
with the letter L or coloured red. 

When replacing the fuse, use only a correctly 
rated approved type and always re-fit the fuse 
cover. 

■ If in doubt — consult a competent 
electrician.

Setting up your TV 


Connecting the aerial 

For viewing digital terrestrial signals only, connect the antenna directly to the 
digital aerial socket. 

• The connecting cables are not provided. 

• For further details, refer to the manuals provided with the devices to be connected. 

Caution 

• Turn off all the equipment including the TV before connecting anything. 


■ If you connect via a device with an 
antenna terminal such as a VCR, 
follow ® —»® —»© in the diagram 
opposite. 

■ If you connect the antenna 
directly to the TV, follow ©. 


It is possible to view analogue TV & teletext 
by using the VCR tuner, this can be achieve 
by switching to the EXT input to which the 
21 pin SC ART cable linking the TV and 
VCR is connected. 


• To connect more equipment, please see 
“Connecting external equipment” on 
page 63. 

• To connect additional audio equipment, 
see “Connecting speakers/amplifier” on 
page 66. 

• When receiving Digital terrestrial 
broadcasting (DVB-T), reception can 
suddenly be lost if the signal becomes 
weak. Use a correctly installed high- 
performance antenna. 

• When connecting via a device with an 
antenna terminal such as a VCR, depending 
on the connection method, the signal may 
be weakened. If this happens, use a booster 
to increase the signal strength. 

• In areas with a lot of radio communication 
such as near ports or airports, noise may 
be introduced into the picture or sound. In 
such cases, reception may be improved by 
using a high-performance antenna. 

• Read the instruction manual of the 
devices which you connect to the TV. 


• For viewing digital terrestrial and 
analogue TV signals, using a two-way 
signal splitter, connect one output to the 
digital aerial socket, the other output to 
the analogue aerial socket.

exactly the right times for some 
programmes. It is recommended that you 
allow some leeway when setting the 
recording times. 

• Provided that the days and times are not 
the same, you can set up to five timer 
settings. 

• When subtitles are ON, the subtitles 
displayed with the broadcast will be 
recorded. When you do not want to record 
the subtitles, you need turn OFF the 
Subtitle setting beforehand (See 
"Displaying the Subtitles” on page 25.).

Operation with the DTV menu 



The TV power lamp begins flashing at three 
minutes before the timer start time. If you are 
watching TV at the time, a message appears 
on the screen to infonn you the timer is about 
to start. 

If the TV is in Standby, the power lamp 
lights orange while timer recording is in 
progress. 


• When performing timer recording with a 
T-V LINK compatible recording device, 
test the timer recording before you record 
the programme. There are some T-V 
LINK compatible recording device that 
will not correctly receive the Direct Rec 
command from the TV. 

If the recording device does not operate 
when the recording start time is reached, it 
is not receiving the Direct Rec command 
from the TV. In this case, follow the 
instructions of “When recording on a T-V 
LINK incompatible VCR:’’. 

While the timer is in operation: 

• You can turn the TV on or off (Standby). 
WARNING: Do not turn off the main 
power. 

• You can watch Analogue terrestrial 
broadcasting channels or the pictures via 
an EXT tenninal. 

• Please note that any programme 
infonnation that appears on the screen, 
such as when making changes to the 
Digital terrestrial broadcasting (DVB-T) 
channel picture, will be superimposed 
over the picture in the VCR recording.

■ DIGITAL VNR 

The DIGITAL VNR function cuts down the 
amount of‘noise’ (‘snow’ or interference) in 
the original picture. 

You can choose from the three DIGITAL 
VNR function settings of AUTO, MIN and 
MAX. 

AUTO(LOW)/AUTO(HIGH): 

The TV will automatically adjust the level of 
the DIGITAL VNR effect to match the 
amount of noise in the picture, giving you the 
best possible picture. 

• If you set the DIGITAL VNR effect too 
high it can make the picture less sharp. It is 
recommended you use the AUTO(LOW) 
setting if you can. If you set the DIGITAL 
VNR function to AUTO(LOW) but still 
notice some noise, change the setting from 
AUTO(LOW) to AUTO(HIGH). 


MIN: 

The level of the DIGITAL VNR effect is set 
to the minimum. If you set the DIGITAL 
VNR function to AUTO(LOW) but feel that 
the sharpness of the original picture has not 
been reproduced fully, change the setting 
from AUTO(LOW) to MIN. 

• The MIN setting is not suitable for low- 
quality pictures which contain a lot of 
noise. 

MAX: 

The level of the DIGITAL VNR effect is set 
to the maximum. If you set the DIGITAL 
VNR function to AUTO(HIGH) but still 
notice some noise, change the setting from 
AUTO(HIGH) to MAX7 

• The MAX setting is not suitable for high- 
quality pictures which contain very little 
noise. 

■ Super DigiPure 

The Super DigiPure function uses the latest 
in digital technology to give you a natural- 
looking picture. The Super DigiPure function 
includes the following two functions. 

DigiPure function: 

This function helps to create a natural- 
looking picture by eliminating unnecessary 
edges from high-contrast and crisp images. 
For images with low-contrast, edges are 
added to produce a sharper, more detailed 
picture. 

You can choose from the three DigiPure 
function settings of AUTO, MIN and MAX. 

• If you set the DigiPure effect too high on 
a low-quality picture that contains a lot of 
noise, this may actually make the noise 
worse. We recommend you use the 
AUTO setting if you can. 

Picture motion compensation 
function: 

This function displays fast-moving pictures 
(for example, the players or hall in a football 
game) more smoothly and naturally on the 
screen. 

• The effect level of the picture motion 
compensation function cannot be 
changed. The effect level is the same no 
matter which of the AUTO, MIN or MAX 
settings is used.

Additional preparation 


■ Equipment which can output the 
S-VIDEO signal (Y/C signal) 

Connect the equipment to an EXT terminal 
(but not the EXT-4 terminal). 

You can choose between an S-VIDEO signal 
(Y/C signal) and a regular video signal 
(composite signal). For details of how to 
operate the equipment, see “S-IN (S-VIDEO 
input)” on page 59. 

■ T-V LINK compatible VCR 

Be sure to connect the T-V LINK compatible 
VCR to the EXT-2 terminal. If not, the T-V 
LINK function will not work properly. 

• When connecting a T-V LINK compatible 
VCR to the EXT-2 terminal, be sure to 
connect the decoder to the VCR. If not, 
the T-V LINK function may not work 
properly. 

• When you connect the decoder to the 
VCR, after you have stored TV channels 
in the programme numbers (PR) list, set 
the DECODER (EXT-2) function for the 
programme number (PR) to ON to 
unscramble a scrambled TV channel. For 
details, see “DECODER (EXT-2)” on 
page 58. 

■ Connecting headphones 

Connect the headphones with a stereo mini- 
jack (3.5 mm diameter) to the headphone 
jack socket. 

• No sound comes from the TV speakers 
when the headphones are connected and 
only one screen is displayed. 

■ Video or sound signal output from 
the EXT-2 terminal 

You can change over the output of the video/ 
sound signal from the EXT-2 terminal. This 
is useful when you want to dub the video/ 
sound from another device onto the VCR 
connected to the EXT-2 terminal. For details 
on how to do this, see "DUBBING” on 
page 60. 

• The signals from EXT-4 and PC IN 
tenninal cannot be output from EXT-2. 


■ TV output from the EXT-1 terminal 

The video/sound signal of a Analogue 
terrestrial broadcasting channel you are 
viewing is always output from the EXT-1 
terminal. 

• Changing over a programme number (PR) 
also changes over the TV output from the 
EXT-1 tenninal. 

• The video/sound signal from an EXT 
terminal cannot be output. 

• Teletext programmes cannot be output. 

■ Connection when recording to 
VCR 

• When recording an Analogue terrestrial 
broadcasting, connect to either tenninal 
EXT-1 or EXT-2. If you connect to the 
EXT-2 tenninal, make sure the 
"DUBBING” setting (see page 60) is set 
to "TV”. 

• Choose the EXT-2 tenninal to connect to 
a T-V LINK compatible VCR. 

When recording an Analogue terrestrial 
broadcasting, set the “DUBBING” setting 
(see page 60) to “TV”. 

When recording a Digital terrestrial 
broadcasting (DVB-T), set the 
"DUBBING” setting (see page 60) to 
"DTV”.

Troubleshooting 


Digital terrestrial broadcasting (DVB-T) service area 

Although this TV can receive both Digital terrestrial broadcasting (DVB-T) and Analogue terrestrial 
broadcasting, depending on the area in which you live, you may not be able to receive Digital 
terrestrial broadcasting (DVB-T). 

For details of the Digital terrestrial broadcasting (DVB-T) service area, refer to the FREEVIEW 
website etc. 


If a problem arises while you are using the TV, please read this troubleshooting guide carefully 
before you ask to have the TV repaired. You may be able to fix it easily by yourself. For example, 
if the mains plug is disconnected from the mains 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 decide. If you 
have a question when you are operating a function, read the page(s) for that function carefully, 
not this troubleshooting guide. 

• If you follow the advice in this troubleshooting guide without any success, unplug the mains 
plug and ask for your TV to be repaired. Do not attempt to repair the TV by yourself or to 
remove the rear cover of the TV. 


■ If you cannot turn on the TV 

• Is the mains plug connected to the mains 
outlet? 

• Make sure you set the VCR/TV/DVD 
switch to the TV position. You cannot 
turn the TV on when the VCR/TV/DVD 
switch is set to the VCR or DVD position. 

■ If you cannot turn off the TV 

• Make sure you set the VCR/TV/DVD 
switch to the TV position. You cannot 
turn the TV off when the VCR/TV/DVD 
switch is set to the VCR or DVD position. 

■ No picture or no sound 

• Have you chosen a TV channel with very 
poor reception? If so, the BLUE BACK 
function will be activated: the entire 
screen becomes blue, and the sound is 
muted. If you still want to view the TV 
channel, follow the description “BLUE 
BACK” on page 52 to change the BLUE 
BACK function setting to OFF. 

• If the SYSTEM setting for a TV channel 
is incorrect, it may prevent the sound 
from being issued. Follow the description 
“EDIT/MANUAL (Analogue)” on 
page 53 to use the MANUAL function to 
try to change the SYSTEM setting. 


■ Poor picture 

• If the Digital terrestrial broadcasting 
(DVB-T) picture is unnatural, press the 
TV/AV button and MENU/OK button at 
the same time. The power will turn off 
and then on again, after which the picture 
may appear natural again. 

• If noise (snow) totally blocks out the 
picture, there may be a problem with the 
aerial or aerial cable. Check the following 
to try to solve the problem: 

- Have the TV and aerial been connected 
properly? 

- Has the aerial cable been damaged? 

- Is the aerial pointing in the right 
direction? 

- Is the aerial itself faulty? 

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



LT-32/26D50BJ/SJ / LCT1703-001B-U / ENGLISH 


LT-32&26D50BJSJ_Eng.book Page 68 Thursday, October 7, 2004 4:42 PM 


Troubleshooting 


• If the TV suffers interference from signals 
reflecting from mountains or buildings, 
double-pictures (ghosting) will occur. Try 
to change the aerial’s direction or replace 
it with one with better directionality. 

• Are your COLOUR SYSTEM settings 
correct? Follow the description 
“COLOUR SYSTEM” on page 48 to try 
to solve the trouble. 

• Have the COLOUR and BRIGHT settings 
been adjusted properly? Follow the 
description “BRIGHT-2” and 
“COLOUR” on page 45 to try to adjust 
them properly. 

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

• 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. There is 
nothing wrong with the TV. 

• Since this TV is designed to make full use 
of the resolution of the original video 
source, the motion may appear unnatural 
when the video source is input with 625p 
progressive-scanning component signals. 
If this occurs, change the output setting of 
the connected device to 625i interlace¬ 
scanning component signal output. See 
the instructions that came with the device 
for more infonnation. 

■ Poor sound 

• Have you adjusted BASS or TREBLE 
properly? If not, follow the description 
"BASS” or “TREBLE” on page 49. 

• When TV channel reception is poor, it can 
be hard to hear stereo or bilingual sound. 
In this case, follow the description 
“STEREO /1 • II” on page 49 to hear the 
sound more easily by changing it to a 
mono sound. 

■ If the TV does not respond to the 
remote control 

• Have the batteries of the remote control 
worn out? Follow the description “Putting 
the batteries into the remote control” on 
page 10 and replace them with new 
batteries. 


• Have you attempted to use the remote 
control from the sides or rear of the TV or 
from more than seven metres away from the 
TV? Use the remote control in front of your 
TV or from less than seven metres away. 

• When you are viewing a teletext 
programme, you cannot operate the 
menus. Press the TV/DTV button to 
return to the ordinary TV programme, and 
then try operating the menus. 

• If the TV suddenly stops responding, 
disconnect the power cord of the TV from 
the AC outlet. Connect them to the AC 
outlet again to turn on the TV. If the TV 
returns to a nonnal state, it is not a failure. 

■ Other issues 

• When the SLEEP TIMER function 
operates, the TV is automatically turned 
off. If the TV suddenly turns off, try to 
press the Cl)/ 1 (standby) button to turn on 
the TV once again. If the TV goes back to 
nonnal, there is no problem. 

• When the TV is receiving a wide-screen 
signal (WSS) or a signal from an external 
device affecting the screen size, the 
ZOOM mode automatically changes. 
When you want to resume the previous 
ZOOM mode, press the ZOOM button 
again. 

• 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 fault. This is the 
time needed for the image to stabilise 
before it can be displayed. 

• The TV may make a crackling sound due 
to a sudden change in temperature. The 
picture or sound may be normal. If you 
hear crackling sounds frequently while 
you are viewing the TV, there may be 
other causes. As a precaution, ask your 
service technician to inspect it.

LT-32&26D50BJSJ_Eng.book Page 69 Thursday, October 7, 2004 4:42 PM 


Troubleshooting 


• The top of the TV and the screen may 
become hot during use but this has no 
affect on the performance of the TV. 
Make sure that the ventilation holes are 
not blocked. 

• When the picture is unstable, the screen 
may become white for a moment. This 
happens when the signal which drives the 
liquid crystal is missing. This is not a 
fault. 

• When a still image has been displayed for 
a long period, a faint residual image may 
remain on the screen for a short time after 
the power has been turned off or when 
another image is displayed. This is not a 
fault and the image will eventually 
disappear.
