Electrical energy can perform many useful functions. This TV set has been engineered and
manufactured to assure your personal safety. But improper use can result in potential electrical
shock or fire hazards. In order not to defeat the safeguards incorporated in this TV set, observe
the following basic rules for its installation, use and servicing.
And also follow all warnings and instructions marked on your TV set.
1 Your TV set is equipped with a polarized AC line plug (one blade
of the plug is wider than the other). This safety feature allows
the plug to fit into the power outlet only one way. Should you be
unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the
plug. Should it still fail to fit, contact your electrician.
2 Operate the TV set only from a power source as indicated on the TV set or refer to the oper-
ating instructions for this information. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your
home, consult your TV set dealer or local power company. For battery operation, refer to the
3 Overloaded AC outlets and extension cords are dangerous, and so are frayed power cords
and broken plugs. They may result in a shock or fire hazard. Call your service technician for
4 Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over the power cord, and do not place the TV set
where power cord is subject to traffic or abuse. This may result in a shock or fire hazard.
5 Do not use this TV set near water -- for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, or
laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near swimming pool, etc.
6 If an outside antenna is connected to the TV set, be sure the antenna system is grounded so
as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section
810 of the National Electrical Code 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 require-
ments for the grounding electrode.
IMPORTANT RECYCLING INFORMATION
This product utilizes both a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) and other com-
ponents that contain lead. Disposal of these materials may be regu-
lated in your community due to environmental considerations. For
disposal or recycling information, please contact your local authori-
ties, or the Electronic Industries Alliance: http://www.eiae.org
