Cleaning: Unplug this product from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners
or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
6.
Attachments: Use only attachments recommended by the manufacturer. Use of other attachments may be hazardous.
7.
Water and Moisture: Do not use this product near water (e.g., near a bath tub, washbowl,
kitchen sink, laundry tub, in wet basements, or near a 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.
9.
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.
10. 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.
11. 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.
12. Grounding or Polarization: This product may be equipped with a polarized alternating-current
line plug that has one blade wider than the other. 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.
13. 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.
14. 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.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
15. 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).
16. 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.
17. 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.
18. Overloading: Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
19. Object and Liquid Entry: Never push objects of any kind into this product through openings
as they may touch dangerous voltage points or shout-out parts that could result in a fire or
electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the product.
20. 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.
21. 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.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
22. 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.
23. 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.
24. Wall or Ceiling Mounting: The product should be mounted to a wall or ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer.
25. Heat: The product should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other products (including amplifiers) that produce heat.

•
Hold a DVD/CD by its edges. Avoid touching the recorded side of the disc. To remove a DVD/CD
from its storage case, press down on the center retention mechanism of the case and lift the disc
out.
•
Do not subject discs to prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, high humidity, or high temperatures.
•
Do not bend or press discs.
•
To reduce the risk of scratches, always put discs back in their case after use. Store discs
vertically in a cabinet.
•
Do not place stickers or labels on either side of a disc.
Cleaning a Disc
Use a dry, soft cloth to wipe off any fingerprints and dusts from the playing surface of the disc.
Wipe in a straight line radially from the center to the outside edge of the disc. Small dust particles
and light stains will not affect playback quality.
•
Never use chemicals such as record sprays, anti-static sprays, benzene, or thinners to clean
a disc. Doing so will damage the surface of the disc permanently.
