Precautions
On safety
 Completely disconnect the power cord (mains lead)
from the wall outlet (mains) if it is not going to be used
for an extended period of time. When unplugging the
unit, always grip the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
 Should any solid object or liquid get into the system,
unplug the system, and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it again.
 The AC power cord can be changed only by a qualified
service facility.
On placement
 Do not place the system in an inclined position or in
locations that are extremely hot, cold, dusty, dirty, or
humid or lacking adequate ventilation, or subject to
vibration, direct sunlight or a bright light.
 Be careful when placing the system on surfaces that
have been specially treated (for example, with wax, oil,
polish) as staining or discoloration of the surface may
result.
 Condensation may form on outer surfaces or internally,
and cause the system to malfunction if the system is
suddenly moved from a cold to a warm environment. If
condensation forms, turn off the system, and leave the
system off until the moisture evaporates. Do not use the
system until the condensation has fully evaporated.
On heat buildup
 Heat buildup on the unit during operation is normal
and is not cause for alarm.
 Do not touch the cabinet if it has been used
continuously at a high volume because the cabinet may
have become hot.
 Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.
On the speaker system
The built-in speaker system is not magnetically shielded,
and the picture on nearby TV sets may become
magnetically distorted. In this situation, turn off the TV,
wait 15 to 30 minutes, and turn it back on.
If there is no improvement, move the system far away
from the TV.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean this system with a soft cloth slightly moistened
with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of
abrasive pads, scouring powder, or solvents, such as
thinner, benzine, or alcohol.
