should be retained for future reference.


Heed Warnings: All warnings on the appliance and in the

be followed.


Cleaning: Unplug this video 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 video product manufacturer as they may cause hazards.


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


Ventilation: Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for
ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the video
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 video product on a bed, sofa, rug, or
other similar surface. This video product should never be
placed near or over a radiator or heat register. This video
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 video product should be operated only
under the type of power source indicated on the marking label.
If you are not sure of the type of power supply for your home,
consult the appliance dealer or a local power company. For
video products intended to operate from battery power, or
other sources, refer to the operating instructions.


Grounding or Polarization: The precautions should be taken
so that the grounding or polarization means of an appliance is
not defeated.



Power-Cord Protection: Power-supply cords should be routed
so that they are not likely to be stepped 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 appliance.


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


Lighting: Under the unusual circumstances, such as during a
lighting storm, or when it is left unused for a long period of
time, unplug it from the wall outlet to disconnect the antenna
or cable system. This will prevent damage to the video
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 and extension cords
as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.


Object and Liquid Entry: Never push objects of any kind into
this video 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
video product.
