swimming pool and the like).
8.
Accessories: Do not place this product on an unstable
cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. Use only with
carts, stands, tripods, brackets, or tables recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the product. Any mounting of the product should follow the
manufacturer’s instructions and should use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer.
A product and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops,
excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the product and cart
combination to overturn.
9.
Ventilation: Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation to ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect it from
overheating. These openings should never be blocked by placing the
product on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This product should
not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer instructions have
been adhered to.
10. Power Sources: This product should be operated only from the type of
power source indicated on the rating label. If you are not sure of the type
of power supply to your home, consult your product 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 product may be equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug that has one blade wider than the other.
www.cobyusa.com
Page Important Safety Instructions
This plug will only fit into the power outlet in one direction. This is a
safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the direction of the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact
an electrician to replace the 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 at the point which they exit from the product.
13. Protective Attachment Plug: The product may be equipped with an attachment plug with overload protection. This is a safety feature. See the
operating instructions for replacement or directions to reset the protective
device. If replacement of the plug is required, be sure the service technician has used a replacement plug that has the same overload protection
as the original plug as specified by the manufacturer.
14. Outdoor Antenna Grounding: If an outside antenna is connected to the
product, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some
protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of
the National Electrical Code, ANS/NFPA 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 (see figure).
15. Lightning: For added protection for this product, unplug it from the wall outlet
and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a lightning storm or when
it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent
damage to the product due to lightning or power-line surges.
Page Coby Electronics Corporation
Important Safety Instructions
16. 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.
17. Overloading: Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral
convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or electric
shock.
18. Object and Liquid Entry: Never push objects of any kind into this product
through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points or shoutout parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of
any kind on the product.
19. Servicing: Do not attempt to service this product yourself as opening or
removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
20. Damage Requiring Service: Unplug this product from the wall outlet and
refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: a) when the power-supply or plug is damaged; b) if liquid has been
spilled or if objects have fallen into the product; c) if the product has been
exposed to rain or water; d) if the product does not operate normally by
following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are
covered by the operating instructions as improper adjustment of other
controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by
a qualified technician to restore the product to its normal operation; e)
if the product has been dropped or damaged in any way; f) when the
product exhibits a distinct change in performance—this indicates a need
for service.
21. Replacement Parts: When replacement parts are required, be sure that
your service technician has used replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or have the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized
substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other hazards.
22. Safety Check: Upon completion of any service or repairs to this product,
ask the service technician to perform safety checks to ensure that the
product is in proper operating condition.
23. Wall or Ceiling Mounting: The product should be mounted to a wall or
