Warning

To prevent electric shock or injury , these safety instructions should be followed in the installation, use and servicing the unit.

Installation

Attachments - Do not use attachments not recommended by the unit manufacturer as they may result in the risk of fire, electric shock or injury to persons.

Water and Moisture - Do not use this unit near water - for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, and the like.

Heat - Do not use this unit near sources of heat, including heating vents, stoves, or other appliances that generate heat. It also should not be placed in temperatures less than 5˚C (41˚F) or greater than 35˚C (95˚F ).

Mounting surface - Place the unit on a flat, even surface.Accessories - Do not place this unit on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The unit may fall, causing serious injury to a child or an 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 unit.

Any mounting of the

appliance should follow the manufacturer

’s instructions, and

should use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer .

Portable cart - An appliance and cart combination

 

should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive

 

force, and uneven surfaces may cause the

 

appliance and cart combination to overturn.

 

Ventilation - The unit should be situated with adequate space

around it so that proper heat ventilation is assured.

Allow 10 cm

clearance from the rear and the top of the unit, and 5 cm from

the each side.

 

Slots and openings in the cabinet and the back or bottom are

provided for ventilation, and to ensure reliable operation of the

unit and to protect it from overheating, these openings must not

be blocked or covered. The openings should never be blocked

by placing the unit on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface.

This unit should not be placed in a built-ininstallation such as a

bookcase unless proper ventilation is provided.

 

Object and Liquid Entry - Never push objects of any kind into

this unit through the cabinet slots as they may touch dangerous

voltage points or short-circuitparts that could result in a fire or

electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the unit.

 

Electric Power

Power Sources - This unit 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

 

appliance dealer or local power company . To operate unit on

 

battery power , or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.

 

Grounding or Polarization - This unit is provided with a polarized

 

alternating-currentline 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-supplycords 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 product.

 

Overloading - Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords,

 

integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of

 

fire or electric shock.

 

Outdoor Antenna

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.

Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the unit, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges andbuilt-upstatic charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No.70, provides information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of thelead-inwire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location ofantenna-dischargeunit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode. See the figure.

2 ENGLISH

Note to CATV system installer:

This reminder is provided to call the CA

TV system installer ’s

attention to Section 820-40of the NEC which provides guidelines

for proper grounding and, in particular

, specifies that the cable

ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.

Lightning

For added protection for this unit receiver 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 unit due to lightning and powerline surges.

Maintenance

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

Damage Requiring Service

Unplug this unit from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:

1)When the power cord or plug is damaged.

2)If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the unit.

3) If the unit has been exposed to rain or water .

4)If the unit does not operate normally by following the operating instructions.
