The product may fall, causing
serious injury and serious
damage to the product. Use
only with a cart, stand, tripod,
bracket or table recommended

on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface. This
product should never be placed near or over a
radiator or heat source. This product 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.
POWER SOURCES
This product should be operated only from the
type of power source indicated on the marking
label. If you are not sure of the type of power
supply to your home, consult your appliance
dealer or local power company. For products
intended to operate from battery power, or other
sources, refer to the operating instructions.
GROUNDING OR POLARIZATION
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 obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the
safety purpose of the polarized plug.
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.
LIGHTNING
To protect your product 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 product due to
lightning and power-line surges.
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.
OVERLOADING
Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords
as this can result in a risk of fire or electric
shock.
OBJECT AND LIQUID ENTRY
Never push objects of any kind into this product
through openings as they may touch dangerous
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

the following conditions:
a. When the power-supply cord or plug is
damaged.
b. If liquid has been spilled or objects have
fallen into the product.
c. If the product has been exposed to rain or
water.
d. If the product does not operate normally by
following the operating instructions. Adjust
only those controls that are covered by the
operating instructions, as an adjustment of
other controls may result in damage and will
often require extensive work by a qualified
technician to restore the product to its
normal operation.
e. If the product has been dropped or the
cabinet has been damaged.
f. When the product exhibits a distinct change
in performance–this indicates a need for
service.
23. HEAT
The product should be situated away from heat
sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves
or other products (including amplifiers) that
produce heat.
24. 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.
voltage points or short out parts that could result in
fire or electric shock. Never spill or spray any type
of liquid on the product.
17. OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING

product, 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 Electric
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 product, size of
grounding conductors, location of antenna
discharge product, connection to grounding

All materials for fastening or packing purposes are not part of the unit and
should be discarded for children’s safety.
•
Please keep all information for future reference.
•

Protect Your Furniture
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber “feet” to prevent the product
from moving when you operate the controls. These “feet” are made from
non-migrating rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any
marks or stains on your furniture. However certain types of oil based
furniture polishes, wood preservatives or cleaning sprays may cause the
rubber “feet” to soften and leave marks or a rubber residue on your
furniture. To prevent any damage to your furniture, we strongly
recommend that you purchase small self-adhesive felt pads, available at
hardware stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply
these pads to the bottom of the rubber “feet” before you place the product
on fine wooden furniture.
