Safety Information
This digital terrestrial receiver has been manufactured to comply with international safety
standards. Please read the following safety precautions carefully.
Safety Instructions and Precautions
Avoid placing heavy items on the unit. Ensure that ventilation
holes are not blocked, as this constitutes a serious fire hazard.
Do not clean the unit with petroleum-based cleansers as this
can damage the paintwork. Use a dry, dust-free cloth.
Disconnect the power and antenna cables during long
absences or during electrical storms.
Avoid dropping the Remote Control Unit.
If there is a smoke or burning smell, turn off & unplug the
unit immediately. Contact your local repair centre for advice.
Avoid placing the unit on slippery or sloped surfaces.
4
Keep the unit away from all moisture sources.
Keep the unit free of dust. Dust or metallic particles that
find their way into the unit can cause fire or electric shock.
Do not open the unit. It contains no user-serviceable parts.
Do not unplug the unit by grabbing the cord. Turn off the
power at the point, and firmly pull the plug. Do not move
the unit while the power cord is plugged in.
Ensure that the unit is kept well away from magnetic
sources such as speakers. These can cause data loss (from
the HDD).
Ensure that the unit is placed in a position that is well-ventilated
and away from direct sunlight or sources of humidity.
Avoid use if the room air temperature exceeds 30 C, or
drops below 5 C. Remember that temperatures inside an
enclosed cabinet can be much higher. The HT9200DTR’s max.
operating temperature is 45 C.
