Factors Affecting Twin View
s If you use a cable box to view all channels, the same channel appears in both windows of Twin View because the cable box unscrambles only one channel at a time. s If you use a cable box, you can view the cable box output in one Twin View window and view a different source (such as a VCR or DVD player) in the second window by using the TV/VIDEO button. For details, see Connecting Optional Equipment on page 28. s Digital sources, as well as any sources connected to the VIDEO 4, 5, 6 inputs, display in the left window, but not in the right window. s If you are viewing a 4:3 source and a 16:9 enhanced source (such as a DVD) side by side in Twin View, the 4:3 source appears larger. s Twin View does not display channels that are blocked by parental settings (see page 102).

If you are using a Memory Stick with the Memory Select function, try changing the position of the A/B select switch. JPEGs captured using a digital video camera may appear to display motion in full screen. This is a result of the way digital video cameras record still images, and is not a result of a malfunction with the TV. The Memory Stick might be locked. Unlock the Memory Stick and try rotating the image again. The file might not have information (EXIF data) that is usually generated when a digital camera records a photo.

The master password clears your previous password; it cannot be used to temporarily unblock channels. The LED (see page 16) blinks when the TV is turned on, then shuts off when the picture is displayed. If the LED blinks continuously, this may indicate the TV needs service.
