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.
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-in installation such as a bookcase unless
proper ventilation is provided.
Object and Liquid Entry - Never push objects of any kind
into the unit through the cabinet slots because they may
contact dangerous voltage points or short-circuit parts and
cause fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on
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
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.
For your convenience, record the model number and
serial number (you will find them on the rear of your set)
in the space provided below. Please refer to them when
you contact your AIWA dealer in case of difficulty.

Antenna Grounding According to the National Electrical Cord
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.
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
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 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.
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
5) If the unit has been dropped or the cabinet has been
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
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
Note to CATV system installer:
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer's
attention to Article 820-40 of 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
