• Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this TV is equipped with a polarized
alternating current line plug having one blade wider than the other. This plug will fit into the
power outlet only one walt If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact your electrician to replace your outlet.
SAFELY
• Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so that they won't be walked on
or pinched by objects placed on or against them. Pay particular attention to cords at plugs, con
venience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit.
• Unplug the TV from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a light
ning storm or when left unattended
and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent dam
age to the unit due to lightning and power line surges.
• Avoid overhead power lines. An outside antenna system should not be

• Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the TV_ be sure the antenna or
