Positioning the appliance
1. Do not place your appliance on an unstable cart, stand, shelf or table.
Serious injury to an individual, and damage to the appliance, may result
if it should fall. Your salesperson can recommend approved carts and
stands or shelf and wall mounting instructions. An appli-
ance and cart combination should be moved with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may
cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn.
2. Slots and openings in the cabinet and in the back or bottom are
provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the appliance and
to protect it from overheating, these openings must not be blocked or
covered. The openings should never be covered with a cloth or other
material, and the bottom openings should not be blocked by placing the
unit on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This appliance should
never be placed near or over a radiator or heat register. This appliance
should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase unless
proper ventilation is provided.
3. Do not expose the appliance to rain or use near water . . . for example,
near a bathtub, swimming pool, kitchen sink, in a wet basement, etc.
Hooking Up Outdoor Antenna
LIGHTNING PROTECTION FOR YOUR ANTENNA AND SET AS PER
NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE INSTRUCTIONS.
EXAMPLE OF ANTENNA GROUNDING ACCORDING TO NATIONAL
ELECTRICAL CODE, ANSI/NFPA 70
(NEC SECTION 810-20)
POWER SERVICE GROUNDING
(NEC ART 250, PART H)
(NEC SECTION 810-21)
NEC - NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE
“Note to CATV system 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.”
4. If an outside antenna is connected to the receiver, 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, 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.
An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of over-
head 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.
Plug in the power cord
5. This product should be operated only from the type of power source indi-
cated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power
supply to your home, consult your product dealer or local power
company. This product 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 obso-
lete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of this polarized plug. Do not
overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience recepta-
cles as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
6. 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 par-
ticular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point
where they exit from the product.
7. Before cleaning, unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Do not apply liquid clean-
ers or aerosol cleaners directly to the unit. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
Service & Repair
8. Unplug the appliance from the wall outlet and refer servicing to
qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
A. If the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
B. If liquid has been spilled into the appliance.
C. If the appliance has been exposed to rain or water.
D. If the appliance has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
E. If the appliance exhibits a distinct change in performance.
F. If the appliance does not operate normally by following the operating
instructions, adjust only those controls that are covered in the oper-
ating instructions. Improper adjustment of other controls may result
in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified tech-
nician to restore the appliance to normal operation.
9. Upon completion of any service or repair, request the service techni-
cian’s assurance that only Factory Authorized Replacement Parts that
have the same characteristics as the original parts were used, and that
routine safety checks have been performed to determine that the appli-
ance is in safe operating condition. Unauthorized substitutions may
result in fire, electrical shock, or other hazards.
10. Never add accessories that have not been specifically designed for use
with this appliance as they may cause hazards.
11. For added protection during a lightning storm, or when the set is left
unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall
outlet and disconnect the antenna. This will prevent damage to the set
due to lightning or power line surges.
12. Never push objects of any kind into this product through openings as
they may touch dangerous voltage points or short-out parts that could
result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the
