It Makes A Difference
Where Your TV Stands
Congratulations on your purchase!
As you enjoy your new TV, keep these safety tips in mind:
If you are like most consumers, you have a TV in your home. Many homes,
in fact, have more than one TV.
The home theater entertainment experience is a growing trend, and larger
TVs are popular purchases; however, they are not always supported on
the proper TV stands.
Sometimes TVs are improperly secured or inappropriately
situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks, audio
speakers, chests, or carts. As a result, TVs may fall over,
causing unnecessary injury.
The consumer electronics industry is committed to
making home entertainment enjoyable and safe.
The Consumer Electronics Association formed the
Home Entertainment Support Safety Committee,
comprised of TV and consumer electronics furniture
manufacturers, to advocate children's safety and educate
consumers and their families about television safety.
Tune Into Safety
One size does NOT fit all! Use appropriate furniture large enough to
support the weight of your TV (and other electronic components).
Use appropriate angle braces, straps, and anchors to secure your furniture
to the wall (but never screw anything directly into the TV).
Carefully read and understand the other enclosed instructions for proper
use of this product.
Do not allow children to climb on or play with furniture and TVs.
Avoid placing any item on top of your TV (such as a VCR, remote control,
or toy) that a curious child may reach for.
Remember that children can become excited while watching a program
and can potentially push or pull a TV over.
Share our safety message about this hidden hazard of the home with
your family and friends. Thank you!

15/06/2005, 4:10 PM
Slots and openings in the cabinet 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 source. This unit should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack
unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer's instructions have been adhered to.
10. POWER SOURCE
This unit should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the rating plate. If you are not sure of the
type of power supply to your home, consult your appliance dealer or local power company.
11. GROUNDING OR POLARIZATION
This unit is equipped 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.
12. POWER-CORD PROTECTION
Power-supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against
them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the appliance.
To protect your unit from a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of
time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage
to the unit due to lightning and power line surges.
14. 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 or against such power lines or
circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power
lines or circuits, as contact with them might be fatal.
Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords, as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
16. OBJECT AND LIQUID ENTRY
Do not push objects through any openings in this unit, as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts
that could result in fire or electric shock. Never spill or spray any type of liquid into the unit.
17. OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the unit, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded to
provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges, Section 810 of the National Electrical
Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with respect 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.
