11. Grounding
or Polarization
This TV receiver is equipped with a polarized
alternating-current
line plug (a plug having one

the plug.
If the plug should still t'ail to fit, contact your
electrician

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. Object and Liquid Entry
Never push objects of any kind into this TV
receiver through openings as they may touch
dangerous
voltage points or short-out
parts that
could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill
liquid of any kind on the TV receiver.
17. Outdoor Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected
to the TV receiver, be sure the antenna
or cable
system 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, provides information
with regard 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.
