9.Ventilation-Slots and openings in the cabinet and the back or bottom are provided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the TV/DVD/VCR and to protect it from overheating, and these openings must not be blocked or covered. The openings should never be blocked by placing the TV/DVD/VCR on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This TV/DVD/VCR should never be placed near or over a radiator or heat register. This TV/DVD/VCR should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer’s instructions have been adhered to.

10.Power Sources-This TV/DVD/VCR 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. For TV/DVD/VCRs intended to operate from battery power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.

11.Grounding or Polarization-This TV/DVD/VCR is equipped with a polarized alternating-current line 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.

12.Power-Cord Protection-Power-supply cords 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 appliance.

(NEC ART 2 50 , PART H)

13.Outdoor Antenna grounding-If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the TV/DVD/VCR, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70, provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode. (Fig. A)

14.Lightning-For added protection for this TV/DVD/VCR 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 TV/DVD/VCR due to lightning and power-line surges.

15.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.

16.Overloading-Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.

17.Object and Liquid Entry-Never push objects of any kind into this TV/DVD/VCR through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the TV/DVD/VCR.

18.Servicing-Do not attempt to service this TV/DVD/VCR yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

19.Damage Requiring Service-Unplug this TV/DVD/VCR from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:

a.When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged or frayed.

b.If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the TV/DVD/VCR.

c.If the TV/DVD/VCR has been exposed to rain or water.

d.If the TV/DVD/VCR 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 TV/DVD/VCR to its normal operation.

e.If the TV/DVD/VCR has been dropped or damaged in any way.

f.When the TV/DVD/VCR exhibits a distinct change in per- formance-this indicates a need for service.

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

21.Safety Check-Upon completion of any service or repairs to this TV/DVD/VCR, ask the service technician to perform routine safety checks to determine that the TV/DVD/VCR is in proper operating condition.

22.Heat-This TV/DVD/VCR product should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other products (including amplifiers) that produce heat.

CAUTION: TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK, MATCH WIDE BLADE OF PLUG TO WIDE SLOT, FULLY INSERT.

By using this connection you can:

1)Use the TV/DVD/VCR remote to select channels.

2)Program one or more unscrambled channels for Automatic Timer Recording.

NOTE: This TV/VCR/DVD will ONLY record and view the same channel.

CABLE WITH CONVERTER/ DESCRAMBLER BOX OR SATELLITE BOX

If your cable service supplies you with a converter box or if you use a satellite system, you can use the basic connection shown in the illustration.

By using this connection you can also record scrambled channels. However, channel selection must be made with the converter box or satellite box. This means that channels cannot be changed using the TV/DVD/VCR Remote Control. Unattended timer recording is limited to one channel at a time.
