Grounding or Polarization This appliance is equipped with a polarized AC power cord plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other), or with a three-wire grounding type plug (a plug having a third pin for grounding). Follow the instructions below: -For the appliance with a polarized AC power cord plug: 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 have a suitable outlet installed. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug by forcing it in. -For the appliance with a three-wire grounding type AC plug: This plug will only fit into a grounding-type power outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact your electrician to have a suitable outlet installed. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding plug. Overloading Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords or convenience receptacles beyond their capacity, since this can result in fire or electric shock. When not in use Unplug the power cord of the appliance from the outlet when left unused for a long period of time. To disconnect the cord, pull it out by grasping the plug. Never pull the plug out by the cord. Power-Cord Protection Route the power cord so that it is not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to the plugs, receptacles, and the point where the cord exits from the appliance. Lightning Dream Machine is a trademark of Sony Corporation. For added protection for this appliance during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and 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 appliance due to lightning and powerline surges. Object and Liquid Entry ICF-CD815/CD814 © 2006 Sony Corporation Printed in China Never push objects of any kind into the appliance through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock.

Attachments Do not use attachments not recommended by Sony, as they may cause hazards. ANTENNAS Outdoor Antenna Grounding If an outdoor antenna or cable system is installed, follow the precautions below. An outdoor antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can come in contact with such power lines or circuits. WHEN INSTALLING AN OUTDOOR ANTENNA SYSTEM, EXTREME CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN TO KEEP FROM CONTACTING SUCH POWER LINES OR CIRCUITS AS CONTACT WITH THEM IS ALMOST INVARIABLY FATAL. Be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code provides information with respect 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. Antenna Grounding According to the National Electrical Code Antenna Lead-in Wire Ground Clamps Electric Service Equipment NEC-NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE SERVICE Antenna Discharge Unit (NEC Section 810-20) Grounding Conductors (NEC Section 810-20) Ground Clamps Power Service Grounding Electrode System (NEC Art 250 Part H) Damage Requiring Service Unplug the appliance from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: -When the power cord or plug is damage or frayed. -If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the appliance. -If the appliance has been exposed to rain or water. -The appliance does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change in performance. -This indicates a need for service. -If the appliance does not operate normally when following the operating instructions, adjust only those controls that are specified in the operating instructions. Improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the appliance to normal operation. -If the appliance has been subject to excessive shock by being dropped, or the cabinet has been damaged.
