Note to the CATV 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 connected to the grounding system of the building as close to the
point of cable entry as practical.
Operate the TV only on 120 V AC.
One blade of the power plug is wider than the other for safety purposes and will fit
into the power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, contact your dealer.
If any liquid or solid object falls into the TV, unplug it and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it further.
When using TV games, computers, and similar products with your TV, keep the brightness
and contrast functions at low settings. If a fixed (non-moving) pattern is left on the screen
for long periods of time at a high brightness or contrast setting, the image can be
permanently imprinted onto the screen. Continuously watching the same channel can cause
the imprint of station logos onto the TV screen. These types of imprints are not covered by
your warranty because they are the results of misuse.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not use this polarized plug with an
extension cord, receptacle, or other outlet unless the blades can be fully
inserted to prevent blade exposure.
