CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE COVER (OR
BACK). NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED
THIS SYMBOL INDICATES THAT DANGEROUS VOLTAGE CONSTITUT-
ING A RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK IS PRESENT WITHIN THIS UNIT.
THIS SYMBOL INDICATES THAT THERE ARE IMPORTANT OPERATING
AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE LITERATURE ACCOMPA-
NYING THIS UNIT.
1. Read these instructions.
2. Keep these instructions.
3. Heed all warnings.
4. Follow all instructions.
5. Do not use this apparatus near water.
6. Clean only with dry cloth.
7. Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
8. Do not install near any heat sources such as radia-
tors, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus
(including amplifiers) that produce heat.
9. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or
grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades
with one wider than the other. A grounding-type plug
has two blades and a third grounding prong.The wide
blade or the third prong are provided for your safety.
If the provided plug does not fit fully into your outlet,
consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete
10. Protect the power cord from being walked on or
pinched particularly at plugs, convenience recepta-
cles, and the point where they exit from the
11. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the
12. Use only with the cart, stand, tripod,
bracket, or table specified by the manu-
facturer, or sold with the apparatus.
When a cart is used, use caution when
moving the cart/apparatus combination
to avoid injury from tip-over.
13. Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or
when unused for long periods of time.
14. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Ser-
vicing is required when the apparatus has been
damaged in any way, such as power-supply cord or
plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects
have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus has
been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate
normally, or has been dropped.
15. If an outside antenna is connected to the television
equipment, be sure the antenna system is grounded
so as to provide some protection against voltage
surges and built up static charges. In the U.S. Selec-
tion 810-21 of the National Electrical Code provides
information with respect to proper grounding of the
mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-
in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of
grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge
unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrodes.
EXAMPLE OF ANTENNA GROUNDING ACCORDING TO NATIONAL
ELECTRICAL CODE, ANSI/NFPA 70
16. An outside antenna system should not be located in
the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electrical
light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such
power lines or circuits. When installing an outside
antenna system, extreme care should be taken to
keep from touching such power lines or circuits as
contact with them might be fatal.
17. "Apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping or
splashing and no objects filled with liquids, such as
vases, shall be placed on the apparatus."
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS
APPLIANCE TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
