Important notes for users in the U.K.
Mains plug
This apparatus is fitted with an approved 13 Amp plug. To change a
fuse in this type of plug proceed as follows:
1 Remove fuse cover and fuse.
2 Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 5 Amp, A.S.T.A. or BSI
approved type.
3 Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket outlets, it should be
cut off and an appropriate plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should have a value of 5
Amp. If a plug without a fuse is used, the fuse at the distribution
board should not be greater than 5 Amp.

FW555C Philips risponde alle prescrizioni
dell’art. 2 comma 1 del D.M. 28 Agosto 1995
n. 548.

Philips Consumer Electronics
Philips, Glaslaan 2
5616 JB Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Note: The severed plug must be disposed of to avoid a possible
shock hazard should it be inserted into a 13 Amp socket elsewhere.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured with the following code:
blue = neutral (N), brown = live (L).
As these colours may not correspond with the colour markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
• Connect the blue wire to the terminal marked N or coloured
black.
• Connect the brown wire to the terminal marked L or coloured
red.
• Do not connect either wire to the earth terminal in the plug,
marked E (or e) or coloured green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain that the cord grip is
clamped over the sheath of the lead - not simply over the two
wires.

General Information
Safety Information
• The typeplate (which contains the
serial number) is located at the rear
of the system.
• Recording is permissible if
copyright or other rights of third
parties are not infringed.
• This product complies with the
radio interference requirements of
the European Community.
• Before operating the system, check that
the operating voltage indicated on the
typeplate (or the voltage indication
beside the voltage selector) of your
system is identical with the voltage of
your local power supply. If not, please
consult your dealer. The typeplate is
located at the rear of your system.
• When the system is switched on, do not
move it around.
• Place the system on a solid base (e.g. a
cabinet).
• Place the system in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent internal
heat build-up in your system.
• The system incorporates a built-in
safety feature that prevents over
heating.
• Do not expose the system to excessive
moisture, rain, sand or heat sources.
