excessive wear and tear or heat.
DON'T remove any fixed cover as this may expose dangerous voltages.
DON'T obstruct the ventilation openings of the equipment with items such as newspapers,
tablecloths, curtains, etc. Overheating will cause damage and shorten the life of the equipment.
DON'T allow electrical equipment to be exposed to dripping or splashing, or objects filled with
liquids, such as vases, to be placed on the equipment.
DON'T place hot objects or naked flame sources such as lighted candles or nightlights on, or
close to equipment. High temperatures can melt plastic and lead to fires.

requirements of traffic safety. It is illegal to watch television whilst driving.
DON'T listen to headphones at high volume, as such use can permanently damage your hearing.
DON'T leave equipment switched on when it is unattended unless it is specifically stated that it is
designed for unattended operation or has a stand-by mode. Switch off using the switch on the

The mains lead on this equipment may be supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse,
the value of which is indicated on the pin face of the plug. Should the fuse need to be
replaced, an ASTA or BSI approved BS 1362 fuse must be used of the same rating. If the fuse
cover is detachable never use the plug with the cover omitted. If a replacement fuse cover is
required, ensure it is of the same colour as that visible on the pin face of the plug. Fuse
covers are available from your dealer.
DO NOT cut off the mains plug from this equipment. If the plug fitted is not suitable for the
power points in your home or the cable is too short to reach a power point, then obtain an
appropriate safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer.
Should it be necessary to change the mains plug, this must be carried out by a competent
person, preferably a qualified electrician.
If there is no alternative to cutting off the mains plug, ensure that you dispose of it immediately,
having first removed the fuse, to avoid a possible shock hazard by inadvertent connection to
the mains supply.
The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Brown : LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured markings identifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or
coloured BLUE or BLACK. The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal
marked with the letter L or coloured BROWN or RED.
On no account connect either of these wires to the terminal marked E or by the earth symbol
E or coloured green or green and yellow.
Alternatively, this equipment may be supplied with a rewireable plug already fitted, which
may be removed if not suitable and an alternative fitted in accordance with the preceding
