should be followed.
5. Cleaning - Unplug this video product from the wall outlet
before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol
cleaners. Use
a
damp
cloth
for
cleaning.
EXCEPTION: A product that is meant for uninterrupted
service and, that for some specific reason, such as the
possibility of the loss of an authorization code for a CATV
converter, is not intended to be unplugged by the user for
cleaning or any other purpose, may exclude the reference
to unplugging the appliance in the cleaning description
otherwise required in item 5.
6. Attachments - Do not use attachments not recommended
by the video product manufacturer as they may cause hazards.
7. Water and Moisture- Do not use this video product near
water, for example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen
sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, and the like.
8. Accessories - Do not place this video product on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The video product
may fall, causing 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 manufacturer, or sold with the video product. Any mounting of the
appliance should follow the manufacturer's instructions and should use a
mounting accessory recommended by
the manufacturer. An appliance and cart
combination should be moved with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and
uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn.
9. Ventilation - Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the
video product and to protect it from overheating, and these
openings must not be blocked or covered. The openings
should never be blocked by placing the video product on a
bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This video product
should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a
bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or
the manufacturer's instructions have been adhered to.
10. Power Sources - This video 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 to
your home, consult your appliance dealer or local power
company. For products intended to operate from battery
power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
11. Grounding or Polarization - This video product is equipped
with a polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having
one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the
power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you
are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your
electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat
the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
12. Power Cord Protection - Power supply cords should be
routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or
pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the appliance.
13. Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna or
cable system is connected to the video product, be sure
the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide
some protection against voltage surges and built-up static
charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA No. 70, provides information with regard to

unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will
prevent damage to the video product due to lightning and
power-line surges.
15. 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.
16. Overloading - Do not overload wall outlets and extension
cords as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
17. Object and Liquid Entry - Never push objects of any kind
into this video product through any 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 video product.
18. Servicing - Do not attempt to service this video product
yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you
to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing
to qualified service personnel.
19. Damage Requiring Service - Unplug this video 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 liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the
video product.
c. If the video product has been exposed to rain or water.
d. If the video product does not operate normally by following
the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that
are covered by the operating instructions as an improper
adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will
often require extensive work by a qualified technician to
restore the video product to its normal operation.
e. If the video product has been dropped or damaged in any
way.
f. When the video product exhibits a distinct change in performance this indicates a need for service.
20. Replacement Parts - When replacement parts are
required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or have the
same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized
substitutions may result in fire, electric shock or other hazards.
21. Safety Check - Upon completion of any service or repairs
to this video product, ask the service technician to perform
safety checks to determine that the video product is in
proper operating condition.
22. Heat - This video product should be situated away from
heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or
