EXAMPLE OF ANTENNA GROUNDING AS PER THE
NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE
Moisture will form in the operating section of the player if the player is brought from cool surroundings
into a warm room or if the temperature of the room rises suddenly. When this happens, player's
performance will be impaired.
To prevent this, let the player stand in its new surroundings for about an hour before switching it on, or
make sure that the room temperature rises gradually.
Condensation may also form during the summer if the player is exposed to the breeze from an air
conditioner. In such cases, change the location of the player.
26. SOUND DISTORTION
Do not allow the product output distorted sound for a longtime. It may cause speaker overheating and fire.
When you use the headphones, keep the volume at a moderate level. If you use the headphones continu-
ously with high volume sound, it may cause hearing damage.
28. LASER BEAM
Do not look into the opening of the disc tray or ventilation opening of the product to see the source of the
laser beam. It may cause sight damage.
Do not use a cracked, deformed, or repaired disc. These discs are easily broken and may cause serious
personal injury and product malfunction.
30. 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 shall be con-
nected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.
TO USE AC POWER SOURCE
