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.
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.
To prevent electric shock or injury, these safety instructions
should be followed in the installation, use and servicing the
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-in
installation such as a bookcase unless proper ventilation is
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-circuit parts 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-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.
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 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 and built-up static 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 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.
See the figure.
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.
Cleaning - Unplug this unit from the wall outlet before
cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
