Model No. SC-HTB10
Safety Precautions
Ensure that the installation location is strong enough to support long-term use.
≥If its strength becomes insufficient over the course of long-term use, the unit may drop, possibly causing
injury.
The installation work should never be done by any other than a qualified installation specialist.
≥Incorrect installation may cause equipment to fall, and personal injury may result.
Include a safety factor when considering the strength of the proposed installation location (approx.
10 times the product weight).
≥If strength is not sufficient the equipment may fall, and personal injury may result.
Do not install at a location that cannot bear the load.
≥If the installation location lacks sufficient strength, the equipment may fall.
Do not modify the wall mount brackets.
≥Otherwise the unit may fall and become damaged, and personal injury may result.
Install the unit by taking only the steps which are specified in these instructions: Do not install it in
any other way.
≥Otherwise the unit may drop and become damaged, and personal injury may result.

≥Otherwise the unit may drop and become damaged, and personal injury may result.
CAUTION
Do not install at any locations subject to humidity, dust, smoke, steam or heat or under an air
conditioner where water may drip onto the unit.
≥This may have an adverse effect on the unit and cause fire or electric shock.
Leave a clearance between the rear panel and the wall.
≥The unit has air ventilation holes at the front and rear. Covering these may result in a fire.
Install the mounting screws and power cable in such a way that they will not make contact with
metal objects or wiring inside the wall.
≥Electric shocks may result from contact with any metal objects inside the wall.
For installation, use the special-purpose constituent parts.
≥Otherwise, the unit may fall off the wall, and personal injury may result.
When removing this unit, remove the wall mounting screws as well.
≥Otherwise the mounting screws may get caught and personal injury may result.
To operate this unit safely, install it at an appropriate height.

WARNING:
PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION IS REQUIRED.
PANASONIC DISCLAIMS ANY PROPERTY DAMAGE AND/OR SERIOUS INJURY, INCLUDING
DEATH RESULTING FROM IMPROPER INSTALLATION OR INCORRECT HANDLING.
Requests regarding handling:
1 Exercise care when selecting the location for the unit because it may discolor or deform due to light
or heat if it is placed where it is exposed to direct sunlight, or near a heater.
2 Clean the wall mount brackets by wiping them with a soft, dry cloth (such as cotton or flannel). If the
wall mount brackets are very dirty, remove the dirt using a neutral detergent diluted in water, and
then wipe them clean with a dry cloth.
Do not use benzine, thinner, or furniture wax as this may cause the coating to peel.
(For information on cleaning the unit, see the unit’s instruction manual (> 5). If using a chemically
treated cloth, follow the instructions supplied with the cloth.)
Precautions for wall mount bracket installation
≥ The wall mount brackets are for use in attaching the unit to a vertical wall. Do not attach to any surface
other than a vertical wall.
≥ To ensure correct unit performance and prevent trouble, do not install at any of the following locations:
jNear sprinklers or fire/smoke detectors
jWhere there is a risk of exposure to vibration or impact
jNear high-voltage wires or dynamic power supplies
jNear sources of magnetism, heat, water vapour or soot
jLocations exposed to air blown from heating equipment
jWhere droplets of condensation from an air conditioner or other unit may form.
≥ Attach using techniques suited to the structure and materials of the installation location.
≥ Spread a soft blanket or cloth over the floor so that the unit and floor will not be marked or scratched
during the assembly and installation work.
≥ When screwing down the parts, ensure that the screws are neither insufficiently tightened nor over
tightened.
≥ Take sufficient care to ensure safety around you when performing the assembly and installation work
or while moving about during the course of the work.
≥ Do not install the unit underneath ceiling lamps (spotlights, halogen lamps, etc.). Otherwise, the
cabinet may be bent or damaged by high heat.
Do not connect this unit to the household AC power supply socket while installing.
When screwing down the parts, ensure that the screws are not insufficiently tightened or over
tightened.
