Power Sources: This video product should be operated only
from the type of power source indicated on the marking la-
bel. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your
home, consult your appliance dealer or local power com-
pany. For video products intended to operate from battery
power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
Grounding or Polarization: This video product is equipped
with a polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having
one blade wider than the other). This plug will ﬁ t 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 ﬁ t, contact your electri-
cian to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the polarized plug.
Alternate Warnings: This video product is equipped with
a three-wire grounding-type plug, a plug having a third
(grounding) pin. This plug will only ﬁ t into a grounding-type
power outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to
insert the plug into the outlet, contact your electrician to re-
place your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose
of the grounding type plug.
Overloading: Do not overload wall outlets and extension
cords as this can result in a risk of ﬁ re or electric shock.
Ventilation: Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided
for ventilation, to ensure reliable operation of the video
product and to protect it from overheating, and these open-
ings must not be blocked or covered. The openings should
never be blocked by placing the video product on a bed,
sofa, rug, or other similar surface.
This video product should not be placed in a built-in instal-
lation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation
is provided or the manufacturer’s instructions have been
adhered to. This video product should never be placed near
or over a radiator or heat register.
Attachments: Do not use attachments not recommended by
the video product manufacturer as they may cause hazards.
Water and Moisture: Do not use this video product near wa-
ter—for example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink,
or laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool,
and the like.
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 at-
tention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the
point where they exit from the appliance.
Accessories: Do not place this video product on an unstable
cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The video product may
fall, causing serious injury to a child or adult, and serious
damage to the appliance. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod,
bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer, or sold
with the video product. Any mounting of the appliance
should follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and should use
a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer.
An appliance and cart combination
should be moved with care. Quick
stops, excessive force, and uneven
surfaces may cause the appliance
and cart combination to overturn.
Outdoor Antenna Grounding: If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the video product, be sure the anten-
na or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protec-
tion against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Sec-
tion 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 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.

Power Lines: An outside antenna system should not be lo-
cated 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.
Cleaning: Unplug this video product from the wall outlet be-
fore cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
Object and Liquid Entry: Never push objects of any kind into this
video product through openings as they may touch dangerous
voltage points or short out parts that could result in a ﬁ re or elec-
tric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the video product.
