FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Tone-control cannot be stored correctly (non-Dolby sets)
      When "incredible sound" is activated, tone control has a fixed
      preset. Storing the personal setting of the tone control can only be
      done when "incredible sound" has been switched off.
      
The bottom left side of picture shows a green teletext symbol
      The bottom left side of picture shows a green teletext symbol whether
      or not the teletext is switched on.
      
      Subtitling is selected, but the subtitling page is not stored. 
      Switch off the subtitle function by pressing the subtitle knob on the
      remote control (twice), or program the subtitle page (see direction
      for use).
      
Subpages of teletext do not scroll like older sets do.
      In TV-sets with a GFL-chassis it is possible to choose rotating pages
      by pressing the subcode button on the remote control. The subcode has
      three functions: select a subpage via the menu bar, select on subpage,
      or rotate pages (like old sets).
      
How to enable/disable "Child Lock"
      Press "MENU" button on Remote Control. When the menu appears on the
      screen, you select "FEATURES" (this expression is language dependent)
      Within "FEATURES", the "CHILD LOCK" can be enabled or disabled.
