this warranty against defects in materials and workmanship from
the date of the replacement or repair for ninety (90) days or for

and the replaced item becomes Philips’ property. When a refund

Safety
Important Safety Instructions
a Read these instructions.
k Only use attachments/accessories
specified by the manufacturer.
l Use only with the cart, stand, tripod,
bracket, or table specified by the
manufacturer or sold with the apparatus.
When a cart is used, use caution when
moving the cart/apparatus combination
to avoid injury from tip-over.
b Keep these instructions.
c Heed all warnings.
d Follow all instructions.
e Do not use this apparatus near water.
f Clean only with dry cloth.
g Do not block any ventilation openings.
Install in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions.
h Do not install near any heat sources
such as radiators, heat registers, stoves,
or other apparatus (including amplifiers)
that produce heat.
i Do not defeat the safety purpose of
the polarized or grounding-type plug.
A polarized plug has two blades with
one wider than the other. A grounding
type plug has two blades and a third
grounding prong. The wide blade or the
third prong are provided for your safety.
If the provided plug does not fit into
your outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the obsolete outlet.
j Protect the power cord from being
walked on or pinched, particularly at
plugs, convenience receptacles, and the
point where they exit from the apparatus.
6
EN
m Unplug this apparatus during lightning
storms or when unused for long periods
of time.
n Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel. Servicing is required when
the apparatus has been damaged in any
way, such as power-supply cord or plug
is damaged, liquid has been spilled or
objects have fallen into the apparatus,
the apparatus has been exposed to rain
or moisture, does not operate normally,
or has been dropped.
o Battery usage CAUTION – To prevent
battery leakage which may result in
bodily injury, property damage, or
damage to the apparatus:
• Install all batteries correctly, + and as marked on the apparatus.
• Do not mix batteries (old and new
or carbon and alkaline, etc.).
• Remove batteries when the unit is
not used for a long time.
• Batteries (battery pack or batteries
installed) shall not be exposed to
excessive heat such as sunshine, fire
or the like.
p Apparatus shall not be exposed to
dripping or splashing.
r This product may contain lead and
mercury. Disposal of these materials
may be regulated due to environmental
considerations. For disposal or recycling
information, please contact your local
authorities or the Electronic Industries
Alliance: www.eiae.org.
s Where the MAINS plug or an appliance
coupler is used as the disconnect device,
the disconnect device shall remain readily
operable.
Hearing safety
Listen at a moderate volume.
• Using headphones at a high volume can
impair your hearing. This product can
produce sounds in decibel ranges that
may cause hearing loss for a normal
person, even for exposure less than a
minute. The higher decibel ranges are
offered for those that may have already
experienced some hearing loss.
• Sound can be deceiving. Over time your
hearing ‘comfort level’ adapts to higher
volumes of sound. So after prolonged
listening, what sounds ‘normal’ can
actually be loud and harmful to your
hearing. To guard against this, set your
volume to a safe level before your hearing
adapts and leave it there.
To establish a safe volume level:
• Set your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can
hear it comfortably and clearly, without
distortion.
Listen for reasonable periods of time:
• Prolonged exposure to sound, even
at normally ‘safe’ levels, can also cause
hearing loss.
• Be sure to use your equipment
reasonably and take appropriate breaks.
Be sure to observe the following guidelines
when using your headphones.
• Listen at reasonable volumes for reasonable
periods of time.
• Be careful not to adjust the volume as
your hearing adapts.
• Do not turn up the volume so high that
you can’t hear what’s around you.
• You should use caution or temporarily
discontinue use in potentially hazardous
situations. Do not use headphones while
operating a motorized vehicle, cycling,
skateboarding, etc.; it may create a traffic
hazard and is illegal in many areas.
Warning
•• Never remove the casing of this apparatus.
•• Never lubricate any part of this apparatus.
•• Never place this apparatus on other electrical
equipment.
•• Keep this apparatus away from direct sunlight,
naked flames or heat.
•• Ensure that you always have easy access to the
power cord, plug or adaptor to disconnect the
apparatus from the power.
Notice
Any changes or modifications made to this
device that are not expressly approved by
Philips Consumer Lifestyle may void the user’s
authority to operate the equipment.
