Captions  are  the  subtitles  of  the  dialogue  and   
narration  of  television  programs.  For  prerecorded 
programs, program dialogue can be arranged into 
captions in advance. It's possible to caption a live 
program  by  using  a  process  called  “real-time 
captioning,  which  creates  captions  instantly. 
Real-time  captioning  is  normally  done  by 
professional reporters using a machine shorthand 
system  and  computer  for  translation  into 
English. Captioning is an effective system for the 
hearing-impaired,  and  it  can  also  aid  in  teaching 
language skills.

Caption Tips

• Not  all  TV  broadcasts  include  closed  caption

signals.

• Sometimes TV stations broadcast two different

caption  signals  on  the  same  channel.  By
selecting MODE 1 or MODE 2, you can choose
which  signal  you  view.  MODE  1  is  usually  the
signal  with  the  captions,  while  MODE  2  might
show demonstration or programming information.

• Your  TV  might  not  receive  caption  signals

normally in the following situations.

Poor reception conditions are encountered:

A

IGNITION:
Picture may flutter, drift, suffer from black spots
or  horizontal  streaking.  Usually  caused  by
interference  from  automobile  ignition  systems,
neon lamps, electrical drills and other electrical
appliances.

A

GHOSTS:
Ghosts  are  caused  when  the  TV  signal  splits
and  follows  two  paths.  One  is  the  direct  path
and the other is reflected off tall buildings, hills
or  other  objects.  Changing  the  direction  or
position of the antenna may improve reception.

A

SNOW:
If  your  receiver  is  located  at  the  weak,  fringe
area of a TV signal, your picture may be marred
by  small  dots.  It  may  be  necessary  to  install  a
special antenna to improve the picture.

An old, bad or illegally recorded tape is played.
Strong, random signals from a car or airplane    

interfere with the TV signal.

The signal from the antenna is weak.
The program wasn't captioned when it was   

produced, transmitted or taped.

Using the Text Function

Text services give a wide variety of information on
all  kind  of  subjects  (ex.  captioned  program  lists,
weather  forecasts,  stock  exchange  topics,  news
for hearing-impaired---) through the full TV screen.
But not all stations offer text services, even though
they might offer captioning.

Note

: In the event you receive a poor signal, an 

empty black box may appear and disappear, even 
when the text mode is selected. This is normal 
function in such an event.

Antenna Connections

Connecting an Outdoor Antenna

For the best reception, we recommend you use an
outdoor antenna.
Severely weathered antennas and antenna cables
can reduce the signal quality. Before connecting it,
necessarily inspect them. Any service center can
explain the various outdoor antennas available to
you.

300 Ohm Flat Wire

1. Connect the 300 ohm flat wire to screws on the

300 ohm to 75 ohm adapter.

2. Push  the  end  of  300  ohm  to  75  ohm  adapter

into 75 ohm antenna jack. 

75 Ohm Coaxial Cable

1. Connect  the  75  ohm  coaxial  cable  directly  to

the antenna jack.

Connecting a CATV Cable

If  you  subscribe  to  a  CATV  system,  change  the
antenna connection as described below.
