Electrical energy can perform many useful functions. This unit has been engineered and
potentia
manufactured to assure your personal safety. But improper use can result in potenti~
electrical shock or fire hazards. In order not to defeat the safeguards incorporated in tr
t~
monitor, observe the following basic rules for its installation, use and servicing.
And also follow all warnings and instructions marked on your video monitor.
INSTALLATION
1. Your set is equipped with a polarized AC line plug (one blade of the plug is wider than
the other).
This safety feature allows the plug to fit into the power outlet only one way.
Should you be unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug.
Should it still fail to fit, contact your electrician.
2. Operate the set only from a power source as indicated on the set or refer to the user's
manual for this information. If you are not sure of the type of power supply to your
home, consult your dealer or local power company.
3. Overloaded AC outlets and extension cords are dangerous, and so are frayed power
cords and broken plugs. They may result in a shock or fire hazard. Call your service
technician for replacement.
4. Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over the power cord, and do not place the set
where power cord is subjectto
subject to traffic or abuse. This may result in a shock or fire hazard.
5. Do not use this set near water .-- for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink,
or laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, etc.
6. Sets are provided with ventilation openings in the cabinet to allow heat generatF
generate
during operation to be released. If these openings are blocked, heat built-up within th
th~
set can cause failures which may result in a fire hazard. Therefore:
— Never block the bottom ventilation slots by placing it on a bed, sofa, rug, etc.;
-— Never place a set in a "built-in" enclosure unless proper ventilation is provided;
-— Never cover the openings with cloth or other material;
-— Never place the set near or over a radiator or heat register.
7. To avoid personal injury:
— Do not place a set on a sloping shelf unless properly secured;
-— Use only a cart or stand recommended by the manufacturer;
-— Do not try to roll a cart with small casters across thresholds or deep pile carpets.
-— Wall and shelf mounted installations should use factory approved mounting instrucinstruc
tions.
J
USE
8. Always turn the set off if it is necessary to leave the room for more than a short period
of time. Never leave a set on when leaving the house. A possible malfunction may
result in a fire hazard.
9. Caution children about dropping or pushing objects into the set's cabinet openings.
Some internal parts carry hazardous voltages and contact can result in a fire or
electrical shock.
)
10. Unplug the set from the wall outlet before cleaning the face of the picture tubt.
Use a slightly damp (not wet) cloth. Do not use an aerosol directly on the picture tube
since it may overspray and cause electrical shock.

operating. It is normal for some sets to make occasional snapping or popping
sounds, particularly when being turned on or off.
Do not attempt to service this set yourself as opening or removing covers may expose
you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel.
When replacement parts are required, have the service technician verify in writing that
the replacements he uses have the same safety characteristics as the original parts. Use
of manufacturer's specified replacements can prevent fire, shock, or other hazards.
