A Few Pointers

ON THE SELECTION OF A PROPER LOCATION FOR YOUR NEW ZENITH TELEVISION RECEIVER

First to be considered and of primary importance is the selection of a proper location for your receiver. It is recommended that several positions in the-room be tried to determine the one where best reception is obtained with the built-in antenna. If after so doing reception is not satisfactory because of low signal level or other uncontrollable factors, the installation of an outdoor antenna will be necessary. In addition the following requirements should be observed.

Place receiver within easy reach of Antenna lead-in wire and 115 volt 60 cycle A.C. electrical outlet.

Place where sufficient open space is available in front of the receiver for unobstructed, uncrowded viewing. Viewers should not be seated too close to the screen. A distance of from 5 to 10 ft. usually provides maximum eye comfort.

Place where unimpeded cabinet ventilation is allowed. If the receiver is to be placed along a wall allow a few inches for this purpose.

Lastly, but of utmost importance, it is necessary that the receiver cabinet be level so that full benefit of the reflection proof feature be enjoyed. If front legs of receiver base rests on a rug it is suggested that rear legs be elevated to level cabinet.

NOTE: If confronted with a problem or indecision as to choice of the best

location we advise you to follow the counsel of the Zenith television technician who installs your receiver.

How to Tune

AND PROPERLY ADJUST THE CONTROLS ON YOUR NEW ZENITH

Before attempting operation of your new Zenith television receiver it is important that you learn how, and in some cases when to adjust the various controls. The following instructions have been prepared to give you all necessary information. It is suggested that while reading careful note be made of the different effects caused by incorrect control adjustments so that they may be avoided.

Familiarizing yourself with the location of each of the controls (see Figs.

1 and 3) is a simple matter. A more complete understanding of their proper use, however, can be best brought about if we discuss each one briefly. The Panel Controls, are the first to receive attention.

OFF-ON SWITCH VOLUME CONTROL

PANEL CONTROLS

The panel controls on your new Zenith are identified above (Fig. 1). It will be noted that an illuminated channel indicator has been provided for the Station Selector Switch for added ease in operating the receiver. The function of the controls are discussed in the following paragraphs.

STATION SELECTOR SWITCH

By a simple twist of this switch a television station operating on any one of the twelve commercial channels in your area may be tuned in. As you rotate the knob it will click sharply into each channel position and the number of the channel tuned in will appear in the indicator located just above the knob. In setting this control make sure that it is set on the correct channels for reception of local stations as it is somtimes possible to obtain a picture, though of poor quality and without sound, on the channels immediately below those on which the stations are actually assigned.

To aid you in developing your knowledge as to the various television stations operating in your television area and their correct channel numbers, a station log has been printed on the back cover of this booklet. You can fill it in by referring to the television program section of your newspaper (most television area newspapers now print such a program schedule) or you ask your Zenith dealer to do so for you.

Page 5:

The last point that we wish to bring out in connection with the Station Selector Switch on your new Zenith is the fact that Zenith designers have provided for the simple addition of new tuning elements into your receiver. Thus when the new high frequency television channels, now under consideration by the Federal Communications Commission, become available under present standards, your Zenith can be easily adapted for their reception. In this way you are assured of the ability to keep pace with the growing television industry.

COMBINATION ON-OFF SWITCH VOLUME CONTROL

The operation of this control is one that should be familiar to all. Clockwise rotation turns the receiver on and increases the volume, counter-clockwise rotation diminishes the volume and if continued until a click is heard turns the receiver off. In speaking of this control we wish to bring out the fact that it is important that the receiver be turned on and allowed to warm up for a period of at least 30 seconds before you wish to use it.

PICTURE CONTROL SWITCH

The Picture Control switch located immediately below the picture screen allows you to have either the Giant Circle picture or the smaller conventional size (Fig. 2) -whichever you" choose. This change can be made instantly and as often as you like.

PERMA-JUST CONTROLS

The Perma-Just Controls on your new Zenith are located under the attractive hinged panel on the front of the receiver. They are not intended for every day use in operating the receiver and will require very little attention after they once have been adjusted by the Zenith television technician upon installation. After having completed the adjustment of each control, he will remove the knob and will reposition it so that the position marker dot on the outer rim will appear in the top center position (as in Fig. 3). If they are ever accidentally moved (the cover panel has been designed to minimize this danger), it is a simple matter to re-set them using the marker dots as a reference. However, in some cases additional information may be necessary to arrive at correct settings and it is for this purpose that each control is fully explained on the following pages.

Page 7:

BRIGHTNESS

This control is used in setting the brilliance or light intensity of the picture screen. Clockwise rotation increases the light; counter-clockwise rotation, naturally, the reverse. (See Fig. 4.) It is to be used in conjunction with the contrast control as its movement will have a direct effect on picture contrast. An extremely high setting of this control will produce much the same effect as a low setting of the contrast control. See Fig. 8.

FINE TUNING

By moving this control slowly through its range it will be found that the position in which,the clearest sound is obtained is quite broad. Tune within this range of clearest sound for best picture.

(Fig. No. 5) Sound Bars in Picture. Adjust Fine Tuning Control

VERTICAL HOLD

This control is used in correcting for vertical movement of the picture which causes it to appear as if it were "rolling" up or down on the screen. (See Fig. 6.) As the control is rotated slowly throughout its range it will be noted that the position in which the picture remains stationary or "locked-in" and centered is quite broad. The proper setting is in the middle of this position.

(Fig. No. 4) Contrast High and/or Brightness Control Setting too Low

(Fig. No. 6) Adjustment of Vertical Hold Control Necessary

Page 8:

HORIZONTAL HOLD

Because of the extremely stable circuits in your new Zenith, a setting in the approximate center of the range of this control will be satisfactory normally. If the picture on the receiver screen appears to have a tendency to move across the screen horizontally or if it assumes a broken •streaked appearance as indicated in Fig. 7, it is to be adjusted to the center of the range in which the picture remains "locked-in."

CONTRAST CONTROL

This control plays an important role in the operation of your receiver as it is used in adjusting the picture shown on the screen for maximum distinction between the black and white portions. It is to be noted that a setting too far in a counter-clockwise direction will result in a faded "washed out" picture presentation on the screen. Fig. 8. (This effect can also be the result-of too advanced, setting of the brightness control which has been discussed in a previous paragraph.) Your own eye discrimination will soon educate you as to the proper setting of this control.

Having completely read the foregoing instructions you should now be sufficiently well versed to operate your new Zenith television receiver. With your receiver adjusted for your location, only three simple operations will be necessary to bring you the ' Best in Television." They are:

Turn On-Off switch volume control to On\x9D position. Allow warm-up period.

Turn Station Selector Switch to desired channel (Be sure this station is on the air). It may now be necessary to adjust the volume control.

With Contrast Control in full counter clockwise position, adjust Brightness control until light is just visible on screen. Contrast control is then to be advanced to the position which results in a picture of most pleasing appearance. (See Fig. 9.)

Interference

ITS MOST COMMON CAUSES AND EFFECTS

While the most effective means of reducing interference to a minimum has been built into your Zenith, occasionally some electrical disturbances such as that caused by automobile ignition, electrical appliances, machinery, street cars, electric flasher signs, and short wave radio stations, may become evident. As you will receive visual, as well as the more familiar audible indication of such interference, it becomes important in order to avoid confusion that you learn to recognize the more common types for what they are. As the difficulty from all but that caused by signal weakness or reflections, is usually of short duration, it is not necessary or advisable to seek service unless it continues over an extended period of time. Extremely strong interference may cause a jerky up-and-down movement of the image on the screen, while other possible indications may assume the proportions and general appearance portrayed in the following pictures.

Page 10:

Automobile Ignition and Motor Driven Appliances: Interference caused by these and similar electrical mechanism are the cause of a speckled, streaked appearing picture such as shown opposite.

(Fig. No. 10) Ignition Interference

Diathermy--will produce a distinctive herringbone pattern and one or two horizontal bands across the face of the picture. Weaker interference of this type may cause the general blurring or fogging of the image.

(Fig. No. 11) Diathermy Interference

R.F. Interference: Radio signals such as produced by a neighboring commercial, amateur or police station may cause interference in the form of moving ripples or diagonal streaks. Also other television or F.M. receivers operating in the near proximity of your receiver, can be the reason for this reaction.

(Fig. No. 12) R. F. Interference

Page 11:

Ghosts or Reflections-account for a multiple image on your Zenith screen. It is brought about by the rebounding of the television signal from neighboring buildings, hills, and mountains in such a manner as to cause the arrival at your antenna of the signal from two or more directions at different times. The condition may be relieved in some instances when using an outside antenna by readjustment or special installation.

Weak Signal - incurred when you are receiving on the fringe of the service area of the television station, makes itself known by the white speckled or snowy appearance of the picture. Partial blotting out may sometimes occur when the signal is extremely weak. In fringe areas use of an outside antenna is necessary, and if already in use, relocation or raising of the antenna may be advisable, as in the case of reflections, to ' increase the efficiency of the signal pick-up. (Fig. No. 14) Weak Signal

In summing up the contents of this chapter, you will have noticed in respect to the last two conditions, that a change in antenna position or location was suggested as a possible cure. If in an area, however, where there are a number of stations operating, it may be impossible to eliminate all reflections. By the same token, if your installation is located at the extreme limit of a station's range you may not be able to do much to better reception of that particular station.

Having read this far, you have probably come to the conclusion, and correctly so, that the antenna is a very important factor. As additional stations come into existence and begin operation in your area consult your authorized Zenith television technician if you begin to notice a marked indication of either weakness or reflections in reception.

General Notes

WARNING HIGH VOLTAGE
REPAIR

If in an area where an outside antenna is needed, correct antenna installation is essential for top-quality reception. Your local Zenith television technician can advise you as to the type Zenith antenna best suited to reception conditions in your particular location.

115 Volt A.C. 60 Cycle. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPERATE ON D.C. OR LINE SUPPLIES OF OTHER VOLTAGE OR FREQUENCY RATINGS OR DAMAGE WILL RESULT.

For tube numbers and layout position see Patent label inside of Cabinet.

Only your authorized Zenith television technician is to make any repair or adjustments inside the receiver or to replace tubes. A SEVERE SHOCK CAN RESULT FROM TAMPERING.

Your new Zenith television receiver is engineered for dependable long life service but like any mechanical or electrical instrument, it will occasionally require maintenance. It is recommended that a service contract be obtained at the time of purchase to cover cost of such maintenance.

Page 13:

Phonevision

Every Zenith television set is so designed that it will accommodate Phonevision, if and when, it is approved by the Federal Communications Commission for general commercial use on present standards. Phonevision is Zenith's new method for providing on home television receivers top quality feature movies and other theatrical entertainment, which, it is believed, would be too costly to be provided by advertising sponsorship.

As this goes to press (October 1, 1950) Phonevision has not been approved for general commercial operation, but a 90-day limited commercial public test has been authorized, by the Federal Communications Commission for 300 specially selected homes for the purpose of demonstrating its operation and to determine whether or not the public will pay a fee for the privilege of seeing high class television programs in their homes. The test is tentatively scheduled to start in November, 1950 and will include the showing of full-length feature movies via Phonevision each evening of the test period. "Test" families will be charged a fee of $1.00 per picture during the test, but only for those pictures they choose to see.

Phonevision will not in any way interfere with "free" television. Your set will continue at all times to receive all standard television programs as it does today.

Technical Adjustments

All Zenith receivers are adjusted at the factory prior to shipment but due to handling and because of the varying conditions encountered in different locations may require some readjustments occasionally of the controls outlined and identified on the following pages.

BECAUSE OF THE TECHNICAL NATURE OF THE FOLLOWING ADJUSTMENTS AND BECAUSE OF THE DANGER INVOLVED DUE TO THE HIGH VOLTAGES USED THEY ARE TO BE MADE ONLY BY A QUALIFIED TELEVISION TECHNICIAN. OWNERS SHOULD NOT ATTEMPT TO MAKE THESE ADJUSTMENTS.

• BEAM BENDER - Set for maximum brilliance and minimum shadow on picture tube screen.

• DEFLECTION YOKE-If picture is tilted loosen Deflection Yoke locknut and rotate yoke to point where picture is level on screen.

• HEIGHT AND VERTICAL LINEARITY CONTROLS-To be adjusted on test pattern with Picture Control Switch set for Giant Circle picture to obtain a linear pattern covering screen vertically. (See Fig. 15.)

• WIDTH, HORIZONTAL DRIVE AND HORIZONTAL LINEARITY CONTROLS - To be adjusted on test pattern to obtain full width and best horizontal linearity. (See Fig. 15.)

NOTE: Picture must be refocused when setting of horizontal drive control is changed.

• FOCUS ADJUSTMENT

"B" Screen Receivers-Focus adjusted by means of the shunt ring at rear of permanent magnet centering assembly.

"C" Screen and larger-Focus adjusted with Focus Control at rear of chassis.

Adjust focus control for best picture definition.

• VERTICAL HOLD RANGE CONTROL

An auxiliary control to be adjusted for center range operation of the Vertical Hold Control.

• BULLS EYE AUTOMATIC TUNING ADJUSTMENT.

Reduce signal input into receiver until sound and picture are barely per-ceptable. (This can be accomplished by loosely coupling a short length of 300 ohm line connected to antenna terminals of receiver to the antenna lead-in.) Set the FINE TUNING control for clearest sound and best picture on channel 7 or if no station is operating on this channel use the highest operating channel. This position should be at the midway point of the FINE TUNING control range. Then without further readjustment of the FINE TUNING control check to see that other stations come in correctly tuned.

If adjustment is necessary on other stations (allow approximately 30 seconds for local oscillator to warm-up on each channel) it is to be made with the built-in CHANNEL OSCILLATOR ADJUSTMENT WRENCH. This wrench must be pushed in to engage oscillator slug.

• SOUND ADJUSTMENTS.
If some "Buzz" is apparent adjust BUZZ CONTROL for minimum "Buzz" and, if necessary, QUADRATURE and TAKE-OFF COILS for best quality sound. QUADRATURE and TAKE-OFF COIL adjustments must be made on an attenuated signal.

• A.G.C. DELAY ADJUSTMENT.
This control is set at the factory for operation of the receiver in normal metropolitan areas. In fringe areas this control is to be adjusted for best sync and most noise-free picture at site of installation.
