Philips Accessories for video
Your Philips surge protector should be plugged directly into a
properly grounded outlet. All connected equipment should be plugged
directly into your surge protector. Using any extension cord, adapters,
other grounding wires or electrical connections in conjunction with a
Philips surge protector will void all Philips warranties. (For longer cord
applications, use a Philips surge protector with a 10 or 12 foot power
cord.) All wires leading into the equipment, including telephone and
coaxial lines, must pass through an appropriate Philips surge protector.
Philips surge protectors use an indicator display light to alert you to your
surge system’s effectiveness. The “Protection Working” indicator light shows
“ON” when surge protection circuitry is functioning properly. If that light is
off, it indicates that your surge unit has reached capacity and is no longer able
to protect against surges. Some units also
have a “Ground” indicator light to show
you that the wall outlet is wired properly.
Some Philips surge protector models
come with Solid State Phone/Fax/Modem
surge protection. Instead of running a
connection directly from your Phone/
Fax/Modem to the wall jack, you must
pass the connection through the protected
jacks on your surge protector.
Connect your phone/fax/modem line
from your wall outlet to the “Input” jack
on the surge protector. Connect a phone
cord into the “Output” jack on the surge
protector, and connect the other end of
the phone cord to the phone/fax/modem
jack of the device you want to protect.
To claim damage under the Connected
Equipment Warranty as a result of
telephone service line transients,
equipment must be properly connected
to a Philips surge protector which
offers telephone line protection, and
your telephone service equipment
must include a properly installed
and operating “primary protection”
device at the service entrance. (Such
devices are normally added during
telephone line installation.)
If you fail to connect the phone/fax/
modem protection your connected
equipment will not be covered by the
Connected Equipment Warranty. Most
modem damage can be prevented
if you take the time to connect the
Choosing the right surge protector
Make sure you have the correct surge protector for your connected
equipment. Philips makes a full range of power products for almost every
type of electronic equipment. Power surges can occur on any line running
into your home or ofﬁce. This includes AC power lines, telephone lines,
and coaxial lines. A properly installed surge protector will ensure protection
from the power surges that continually hit your electronic equipment. If your
connected equipment has connections through a telephone or coaxial line,
Philips strongly recommends that you purchase and properly connect your
equipment to a surge protector designed to protect those features. If you
receive a power surge through your phone or coaxial line, and your equipment
is not properly connected to a surge protector designed to protect those
surges, any problems that arise will not be remedied under the warranty.
This product, like all surge protectors, has a limited life. Even under
normal circumstances, and in the absence of defects, the product’s life will end
when the components providing surge protection exceed capacity and cease
to provide protection from surges and spikes. This surge device features an
internal protection that will disconnect the surge protective component at the
end of its useful life, but will maintain power to the load (connected equipment)
- now unprotected, thus, acting as a multiple outlet strip. If this situation is
undesirable for the application, the surge protector should be replaced. Units
with Power Blocker™ protection will cease to conduct power through the unit
once they have reached capacity. At that time, the unit needs to be replaced to
ensure proper protection. Units with Power Blocker™ 2 technology will cease
to conduct power through the unit once the MOV’s have reached capacity.
In the event of an overvoltage condition, the Instant Reset button on a Power
Blocker ™ 2 product will trip, and the unit will not conduct electricity. The
user can reset the circuit after the event to restore surge protection. If the red
led goes out on a Power Blocker™ 2 product, the unit needs to be replaced
to ensure proper protection. The Power Blocker™ 2 instant reset feature
protects the AC lines, and is not applicable to telephone or coaxial lines.
Standard surge protectors are not designed to protect against
sustained low voltage situations. Sustained low voltage situations
can cause damage to some connected equipment. If you are in an
area prone to sustained low voltage situations, you should purchase
an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) with surge protection.
Power Blocker™ Protection Feature
Philips products with Power Blocker™ protection are designed to
sacriﬁce themselves in order to save equipment connected to it. Their
circuitry is designed to cut off all power to AC outlets in the event of an
electrical or power surge that overwhelms their protection. If your surge
protector is not allowing current to pass and the protection working LED
is off, then your surge protector has performed its duty – protecting your
equipment – and you must purchase a new unit to replace the expired unit.
Equipment connected to products with Power Blocker™ protection will
be additionally covered in the event of equipment damaged by a lightning
strike. No surge protector will entirely protect against a direct lightning
strike. The surge protector itself is expected to be damaged, thus performing
its duty, and you must purchase a new unit to replace the damaged unit.
Surge protector models with telephone protection are designed to provide
maximum protection from surges present on standard two wire “dial up”
telephone service. Other communications networks which happen to use
modular jacks may not beneﬁt from this protection. CAUTION: The telephone
feature of this product could be rendered inoperable if improperly installed.
Coaxial Cable Connections
Some Philips surge protector
models come with Coaxial Cable
surge protection. Instead of running
a connection directly from your
TV/VCR/Cable Box to the wall
jack, you must pass the connection
through the protected coaxial
connections on your surge protector.
Connect your incoming
cable/broadband line to the
“Input” coaxial connector on
the surge protector. Connect
a coax cable into the “Output”
coaxial connector on the surge
protector, and connect the other
end of the Coaxial Cable to the
input coaxial connector of the
device you want to protect.
To claim damage under the
Connected Equipment Warranty as a result of coaxial line transients,
equipment must be properly connected to a Philips surge protector which
offers coaxial line protection.
If you fail to connect the Coaxial Cable protection, your
connected equipment will not be covered by the Connected
Equipment Warranty. Most TV/VCR damage can be prevented
if you take the time to connect Coaxial Cable protection.
Surge protector models with coaxial protection are designed to provide
maximum protection from surges present on standard coax/broadband lines.
Other communications networks, such as antennas, satellite dishes, which
happen to use coaxial connections may not beneﬁt from this protection.
You should select a Philips model speciﬁcally designed for DBS products for
CAUTION: The coaxial feature of this product could be rendered inoperable
if improperly installed.

Note: This device features an internal protection that will disconnect the
surge protective component at the end of its useful life but will maintain
power to the load - now unprotected. If this situation is undesirable for the
application, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for replacing the device.
