Closed captioning is a process which converts the
audio portion of a television program into written
words, which then appear on the television screen
in a form similar to subtitles. Closed captions allow
viewers to read the dialogue and narration of
television programs. 

Using Closed Captions

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.
• The picture as below shows a typical caption.

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.

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 75 ohm antenna jack.

Connecting a CATV Cable

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

1. Remove the 300 to 75 ohm adapter or the

cable from the set if attached.

2. Connect the CATV cable (75 ohm coaxial

cable) to the 75 ohm antenna jack.
