1. Power sources The appliance should be connected to
a power supply only of the type described in the instruction
manual or as marked on the appliance. If you are not sure
of the type of power supply to your home, consult your
appliance dealer or local power company. For appliances
intended to operate from battery power, or other sources,
refer to the instruction manual.
2. 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,
pay particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from the
CAUTION Polarization This appliance may
be 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.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
4. Ventilation Slots and openings in the cabinet are
provided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of

16.Servicing The user should not attempt to service
the appliance beyond that described in the instruction
manual. All other servicing should be referred to
qualified service personnel.
17.Outdoor antenna grounding If an outside antenna
is connected to the appliance, be sure the antenna
system is grounded so as to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built up static charges.
Article 810 of the National Electrical Code
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. See
18.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 into 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.
19.AC outlets Do not connect other audio equipment
with a power consumption larger than that specified
to the AC outlet on the rear panel. Never connect
other electrical appliances, such as an iron or toaster,
to it to prevent fire or electric shock.
20. Overloading Do not overload wall outlets, extension
cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this can
