Cleaning – Unplug this product from the wall outlet before
cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a
damp cloth for cleaning.


Attachments – Do not use attachments not recommended by the
product manufacturer as they may cause hazards.


Water and Moisture – Do not use this product near water-for
example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub,
in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, and the like.


Accessories – Do not place this product on an unstable cart,
stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The product may fall, causing
serious injury to a child or adult, and serious damage to the
product. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table
recommended by the manufacturer, or sold with the product. Any
mounting of the product should follow the manufacturer’s
instructions, and should use a mounting accessory recommended
by the manufacturer.


A product and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick
stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the
product and cart combination to overturn.


Ventilation – Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the product and to
protect it from overheating, and these openings must not be
blocked or covered. The openings should never be blocked by
placing the product on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface.
This product should not be placed in a built-in installation such as
a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the
manufacturer’s instructions have been adhered to.


Power Sources – This product should be operated only from the
type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not
sure of the type of power supply to your home, consult your
product dealer or local power company. For products intended to
operate from battery power, or other sources, refer to the
operating instructions.


Grounding or Polarization – This product may be equipped with a
polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having one blade
wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only
one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the
plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should
still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete
outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.



Power-Cord Protection – Power-supply cords should be routed so
that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed
upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs,
convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the


Protective Attachment Plug – The product is equipped with an
attachment plug having overload protection. This is a safety
feature. See Instruction Manual for replacement or resetting of
protective device. If replacement of the plug is required, be sure
the service technician has used a replacement plug specified by
the manufacturer that has the same overload protection as the
original plug.


Outdoor Antenna Grounding – If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or cable
system is grounded so as to provide some protection against
voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information
with regard 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 electrode. See Figure 1.


Lightning – For added protection for this product during a lightning
storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of
time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or
cable system. This will prevent damage to the product due to
lightning and power-line surges.


Power Lines – An outside antenna system should not be located
in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric 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.


Overloading – Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or
integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire
or electric shock.


Object and Liquid Entry – Never push objects of any kind into this
product through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage
points or short-out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock.
Never spill liquid of any kind on the product.
