• Do not place the TV on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or
table where it can fail. A falling TV can cause serious injury to a
child or adult, and serious damage to the appliance. Use only with
a cart, stand, tripod, bracket or table recommended
by the manu
facturer or sold with the TV_ Follow the manufacturer% instruc

Move the FV and cart with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces can make the
unit and cart unsteady and likely to overturn.
• Provide ventilation for the TV receiver. The unit is designed with slots in the cabinet for yen
tilation to protect it from overheating.
Do not block these openings with any object, and do
not place the TV receiver on a bed, sd'a, rug, or other similar surface. Do not place it near a

• 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, convenience
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
lightning storm or when left unattended
and unused fur long periods of thne. This will pre
vent damage to the unit due to lightning and power line surges.
• Avoid overhead power lines. An outside antenna system should not be placed in the vicinity
of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits or where it can fail into such
power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, be extremely careful to
keep from touching the power lines or circuits. Contact with such lines can be fatal.

• Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or
cable system is connected to the TV, 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 1984, provides information
about proper grounding of the mast and supporting
structure, grounding of the lead in wire to an antenna
discharge unit, size of grounding conductors,
