WARNING

To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this appliance to rain or moisture.

En

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 product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.

The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions 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 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 orshort-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 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.

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.

2

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.

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. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions as improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage 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 this unit yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous 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 - Upon the completion of any service or repairs to this unit, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to determine that the unit is in proper operating condition.
