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 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. (Fig. A)

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

AUTO HEAD CLEANING
Should your VCR become inoperative, do not try to correct the
problem by yourself. There are no user-serviceable parts
inside. Turn off, unplug the power cord, and please take the
unit to our Authorized Service Center for servicing.
• Automatically cleans video heads as you insert or remove a
cassette, so you can see a clear picture.
• Playback picture may become blurred or interrupted while the
TV program reception is clear. Dirt accumulated on the video
heads after long periods of use, or the usage of rental or
worn tapes can cause this problem. If a streaky or snowy
picture appears during playback, the video heads in your
VCR may need to be cleaned.
1. Please visit your local Audio/Video store and purchase a
good quality VHS Video Head Cleaner.
2. If a Video Head Cleaner does not solve the problem, consult
our nearest Authorized Service Center. Professional video
head cleaning requires highly technical attention.
CABINET CLEANING
• Wipe the front panel and other exterior surfaces of the VCR
with a soft cloth immersed in lukewarm water and wrung dry.
• Never use a solvent or alcohol. Do not spray insecticide liquid
near the VCR. Such chemicals may cause damage and
discoloration to the exposed surfaces.
NOTES:
• Remember to read the instructions included with the video
head cleaner before use.
• Clean video heads only when problems occur.
