Precaution
External Television Antenna Grounding
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the television equipment, be sure the antenna or cable
system is electrically grounded to protect against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the
National Electrical Code provides information about proper electrical 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 Lead-in Wire
Ground Clamp
Electric Service Equipment
Antenna Discharge Unit (NEC Section 810-20)
Grounding Conductors (NEC Section 810-21)
Ground Clamps
Power Service Grounding Electrode System
(NEC Art 250, Part H)
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 fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outdoor antenna
system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them
could be fatal.
Disposal of this unit may be regulated due to environmental considerations. For disposal or recycling information,
please contact your local authorities or the Electronic Industries Alliance at www.eia.org.
For information regarding disposal and recycling in the state of California, please visit the eRecycle website at
www.eRecycle.org.
Notice
The LCD panel used in this television contains millions of thin film transistors that have been manufactured
using a high-technology process to deliver a crisp, clear, and detailed picture. Occasionally, a few of these
transistors may become stuck or non-active; please note that this does not affect the performance of the
television.
5
Precaution
The unit should not be placed in an enclosed installation such
as a bookcase or limited-space rack unless proper ventilation
is provided.
Do not use the unit near water, oil or inflammables.
Do not use a damaged plug and do not let the power cord
touch a heat source.
Place the unit on a flat and stable surface.
Do not place anything (vase, etc) on top of the unit.
6
Do not use the unit in direct sunlight and keep it away from
heaters, stoves, and other sources of heat.
During storm conditions (especially when there is lighting)
unplug your TV set from the main electrical outlet
and antenna.
Do not connect too many extension cords or plugs to an outlet.
Do not attempt to service the unit.
Contact an authorized dealer or repair service.
If there are any unusual sounds or smells coming from the unit,
unplug it immediately and contact an authorized
dealer or repair service.
ENGLISH
Precaution
Do not use or store inflammable substances near the unit.
Place the antenna away from the electric wire, not to touch
even though it falls down by wind.
Place the unit away from the wall for well ventilation.
Do not touch the plug with wet hands.
Be sure to insert the plug tightly. Hold the plug, not the cord,
when disconnecting the plug from the wall outlet.
If an outside antenna is connected to the unit, do not let
the rain water get into the unit by bending or antenna
wire sealing.
Unplug the unit from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a
smooth cloth. Do not use industrial chemicals.
If the connector between the plug and the pin is dusty or
dirty, clean it. Do not spray detergent directly on the unit.
Do not touch the antenna wire and disconnect the plug from
the electrical outlet during storms or lightening.
Disconnect the plug from the outlet if it is not used for a
