IMPORTANT PRODUCT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Follow and obey all warnings and instructions marked on your product and its operating instructions. For your safety,
please read all the safety and operating instructions before you operate this product follow its operating and keep this
user guide for future reference.
INSTALLATION
1. Grounding or Polarization
Your product may be 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.
2. Overloading
Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire
or electric shock.
3. 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 product.
4. Ventilation
Slots and openings around the cabinet are provided for ventilation.
To ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect it from overheating, these openings must not be blocked or
covered.
Do not block the openings by placing the product on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface.

periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent
damage to the product due to lightning and power-line surges. Do not disconnect the antenna or the power cord
during a heavy storm lighting may strike while you are holding the cable cord, causing serious injury; turn off
you LCD and wait for the wether to improve.
3. 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.
