Read the Operating instructions carefully and completely before operating the unit, Be sure to keep the Operating Instructions for future reference. All warnings and cautions in the Operating Instructions and on the unit should be strictly followed, as well as the safety suggestions below.

Installation

1Water and moisture — Do not use this unit near water, such as near a bathtub, washbowl, swimming pool, or the like.

2 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 tham 5°C (41 “F)or greater than 35°C (95°F).

3 Mounting surface — Place the unit on a flat, even surface. 4Ventilation — The unit should be situated with adequate space around it so that proper heat ventilation is assured.

Allow 10 cm (4 in,) clearance from the rear and the top of the unit, and 5 cm (2 in. ) from each side.

- Do not place the unit on a bed, rug, or similar surface that may block the ventilation openings.

- Do not install the unit in a bookcase, cabinet, or airtight rack where ventilation may be impeded.

5 Objects and liquid entry —Takecare that objects or liquids do not get inside the unit through the ventilation openings.

6 Carts and stands — When placed or mounted on a stand or cart, the

unit should be moved with care,

@\

Quick stops, excessive force, and

uneven surfaces may cause the m A&* 3 unit or cart to overturn or fall.

7Condensation — Moisture may form on the CD pickul~ lens when:

-The unit is moved from a cold spot to a warm spot

-The heating system has just been turned on

-The unit is used in a very humid room

-The unit is cooled by an air conditioner

When this unit has condensation inside, it may not function normally, Should this occur, leave the unit for a few hours, then try to operate again.

8Wall or ceiling mounting —Theunit should not be mounted on a wallor-ceiling,u;less specified in the Operating Instructions.

Electric Power

1 Power sources — Connect this unit only to power sources specified in the Operating Instructions, and as marked on the unit,

2Polarization — As a safety feature, some units are equipped with polarized AC power plugs which can only be inserted one way into a power outlet. If it is difficult or impossible to insert the AC power plug into an outlet, turn the plug over and try again. If it still does not easily insert into the outlet, please call a qualified service technician to service or replace the outlet, To avoid defeating the safety feature of the polarized plug, do not force it into a power outlet.

3AC power cord

-When disconnecting the AC power cord, pull it out by the AC power plug. Do not pull the cord itself.

-Never handle the AC power plug with wet hands, as this could result in fire or shock.

-Power cords should be firmly secured to avoid being severely bent, pinched, or walked upon. Pay particular attention to the cord from the unit to the power outlet.

-Avoid overloading AC power plugs and extension cords beyond their capacity, as this could result in fire or shock.

1 ENGLISH

4Extension cord —Tohelp prevent electric shock, do not use a polarized AC power plug with an extension cord, receptacle, or other outlet unless the polarized plug can be completely inserted to prevent exposure of the blades of the plug.

5\iVhen not in use — Unplug the AC power cord from the power outlet if the unit will not be used for several months or more. \Mhen the cord is plugged in, a small amount of current continues to flow to the unit, even when the power is turned off

Ouitdoor Antenna

1 Power lines — When connecting an outdoor antenna, make :;ure it is located away from powerh&3.

2Outdoor antenna grounding — Be sure the antenna system is properly grounded to provide protection against unexpected voltage surges or static electricitybuild-up.Article 810 of the National E~lectrical Code, AN S1/NFPA 70, provides information on proper grounding of the mast, supporting structure, and thelead-inwire to the antenna discharge unit, as well as the size of the grounding unit, connection to grounding terminals, and requirements for grounding terminals themselves.

When to replace the batteries

The maximum operational distance between the remote control and the sensor on the main unit should be approximately 5 meters (16 feet). When this distance decreases, replace the batteries with new ones.

Using the remote control

The instructions in this manual refer mainly to the buttons on the main unit. Buttons on the remote control with the same names as those on the main unit can be used as well.

If the remote control is not going to be used for an extended period of time, remove the batteries to prevent possible electrolyte leakage.

. The remote control may not operate correctly when:

-The line of sight between the remote control and the remote sensor inside the display window is exposed to intense light, such as direct sunlight

-Other remote controls are used nearby (those of a television, etc.)
