A slow flashing green light indicates there is a problem with the communica- tions between the TV and the programmer. In this case, check for a damaged cable, poor contacts or other connection troubles. If the status indicator is red, the programmer batteries are low and should be replaced.
POWER, OR ENTER Since the Clone Programmer’s time can- not be set directly, the time needs to be copied from an LG TV equipped with M.P.I. Input capability. Once the time is copied to the Clone programmer, the current time can then be transferred to another TV.
• TV not reset. When cloning operations are complete, just unplug the LT2000 from the TV. If the TV does not display a picture (blank screen) after a few seconds, just change channels. The LT2000 programmer is designed to be used with TVs containing the 221-01006 and later processors.
