IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
In these safety instructions the word “product” refers to the Canon Video Visualizer RE-450X and
all its accessories.
1. Read Instructions—All the safety and operating
instructions should be read before the product is
operated.
2. Retain Instructions—The safety and operating
instructions should be retained for future reference.
product may fall, causing serious injury to a child or
adult and serious damage to the product. A product
and cart combination should be
moved with care. Quick stops,
excessive force, and uneven
surfaces may cause the product
and cart combination to overturn.
3. Heed Warnings—All warnings on the product and in
the operating instructions should be adhered to.
4. Follow Instructions—All operating and maintenance
instructions should be followed.
5. Cleaning—Unplug this product from the wall outlet
before cleaning.
Wipe the product with a clean soft cloth. If
necessary, put the cloth in diluted neutral detergent
and wring it out well, before wiping the product.
Finally, clean the product with a clean dry cloth. Do
not use benzene, thinner or other volatile liquids or
pesticides as they may damage the product’s finish.
When using chemically-treated cleaning cloths,
observe their precautions accordingly.

6. Accessories—Do not use non Canon approved
accessories as they may be hazardous. Always use
the specified connection cables and be sure to
connect devices correctly.
7. Water and Moisture—Hazard of electric shock—Do
not use this product near water or in rainy/moist
situations. Do not put a heater near this product.
8. Placing or Moving—Do not place this product on an
unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket or table. The
3
9. 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 in your home, consult your product
dealer or local power company.
10.Grounding—This product is equipped with a 3pronged grounding plug (the plug has a third
grounding pin).
The 3-pronged grounding plug will fit 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 replace your obsolete
outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
grounding-type plug.
11.Power-Cord Protection—Power 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 plugs, and the point from
which the cords exit the product.
12.Outdoor Antenna Grounding—If an outside antenna
is connected to the product, be sure the antenna is
grounded so as to provide some protection against
voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section
810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No.
70—1984, provides information with respect to
proper grounding of the mast and supporting
structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an
antenna dischage unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of antenna dischage unit,
connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the gounding electrode. See
figure 1.

13.Lightning—For added protection of this product
during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended
and unused for long periods of time, disconnect it
from the wall outlet. This will prevent damage to the
product due to lightning and power-line surges.
18.Damage Requiring Service—Disconnect the product
from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified
service personnel under the following conditions:
a. When the power-supply cord or plug is
damaged.
b. If any liquid has been spilled onto, or objects
have fallen into the product.
E
c. If the product has been exposed to rain or
water.
d. If the product does not operate normally even if
you follow the operating instructions, adjust
only those controls that are covered by the
operation instructions. Improper 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.
14.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.
15.Overloading—Do not overload wall outlets and
extension cords as this can result in a risk of fire or
electric shock.
16.Objects and Liquid Entry—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. Be
careful not to spill liquid of any kind onto the
product.
f. When the product exhibits a distinct change in
performance. This indicates a need for service.
19.Replacement Parts—When replacement parts are
required, be sure the service technician has used
replacement parts that are specified by Canon or
that have the same characteristics as the original
part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire,
electric shock or other hazards.
20.Safety Check—Upon completion of any service or
repairs to this product, ask the service technician to
perform safety checks to determine that the product
is in safe operating order.
17.Servicing—Do not attempt to service this product
yourself as opening or removing covers may expose
you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all
servicing to qualified service personnel.
