Explanation of Graphical Symbols

The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol

within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated “dangerous voltage” within the products

enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to person.

The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instruction in the literature accompanying the appliance.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

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.

Warning

To prevent electric shock or other injuries, follow all the safety instructions when installing, operating and servicing the unit.

Installation

Attachments - Do not use attachments that have not been recommended by the manufacturer because doing so may result in the risk of fire, electric shock or other injuries.

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 40˚C (104˚F ).

Mounting surface - Place the unit on a flat, even surface.

Accessories - Do not place the unit on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The unit may fall causing serious injury to persons and serious damage to the appliance. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacture, or sold with the unit. When mounting the appliance, follow the manufacturer’s instructions. When mounting the unit, use accessories 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.

PORTABLE CART WARNING

S3126A

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 never be placed near or over a radiator or heat register.) This unit should not be placed in a built-ininstallation such as a bookcase unless proper ventilation is provided.

Weight and heavy objects

The unit should be moved with care by two or more people as the weight balance is not even. Do not place heavy objects on the unit.

Object and Liquid Entry - Never push objects of any kind into the unit through the cabinet slots because they may contact dangerous voltage points orshort-circuitparts and cause fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the unit. Do not put a vase or the like with water inside on this 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 polarizedalternating-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.

1 ENGLISH

Power-cord Protection - The unit is provided with an attachment plug with overload protection. This is a safety feature. See operating instructions 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.

Overloading - Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord. Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords because this can result in fire or electric shock. Do not place the unit in an area where people will walk on the cord.

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 onto such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to avoid touching power lines or circuits because contact with them may 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.

Lightning

For added protection during a lightning storm, or when left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug the unit 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 the 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 the 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 or frayed.

2)If liquid has been spilled into the unit.

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

4)If the unit does not operate normally when following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls

that are covered by the operating instructions because improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage to the unit and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the unit to normal operation.

5)If the unit has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.

6)When the unit exhibits a distinct change in performance - this indicates a need for service.

Do not attempt to service the unit yourself because opening or removing covers may expose you to high voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

Replacement Parts - When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or having the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock or other hazards.

Safety Check - After completion of any service or repairs to the unit, ask the service technician to perform a safety check to ensure that the unit is in proper operating condition.

Note to CATV system installer:

This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer’s attention to Article 820-40of the NEC that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground should be connected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.
