IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1
Read these instructions.
2
Keep these instructions.
3
Heed all warnings.
4
Follow all instructions.
5
Do not use this apparatus near water.
6
Clean only with dry cloth.
7
Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in

8
Do not install near any heat sources such as radi-
ators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus
(including amplifiers) that produce heat.
9
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized
or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has
two blades with one wider than the other.
Grounding type plug has two blades and a third
grounding prong. The wide blade or the third
prong are provided for your safety. If the pro-
vided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult
an electrician for replacement of the obsolete
outlet.
10 Protect the power cord from being walked on or
pinched, particularly at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from
the apparatus.
11 Only use attachments/accessories specified by
the manufacturer.
12 Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or
table specified by the manufacturer or sold with
the apparatus. When a cart is used, use caution
when moving the cart/apparatus combination to
avoid injury from tip-over.
13 Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or
when unused for long periods of time.
14 Refer all servicing to qualified service person-
nel. Servicing is required when the apparatus has
been damaged in any way, such as power-supply
cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled
or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the
apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture,
does not operate normally, or has been dropped.
Do not expose this apparatus to drips or
splashes.
Do not place any objects filled with liquids, such
as vases, on the apparatus.
Do not install this apparatus in a confined space
such as a book case or similar unit.
The apparatus draws nominal non-operating
power from the AC outlet with its POWER
switch in the off position.
The apparatus should be located close enough to
the AC outlet so that you can easily grasp the
power cord plug at any time.
An apparatus with Class I construction shall be
connected to an AC outlet with a protective
grounding connection.
