A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided for your safety.

If the provided plug does not fi t into your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet.

This ‘bolt of lightning’ indicates uninsulated material within your unit may cause an electrical shock. For the safety of everyone in your household, please do not remove product covering.

The ‘exclamation point’ calls attention to features for which you should read the enclosed literature closely to prevent operating and maintenance problems.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fi re or electric shock, this apparatus should not be exposed to rain or moisture and objects fi lled with liquids, such as vases, should not be placed on this apparatus.

CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, match wide blade of plug to wide slot, fully insert.

Important Safety Instructions

a Read these instructions.

b Keep these instructions.

c Heed all warnings.

d Follow all instructions.

e Do not use this apparatus near water.

f Clean only with dry cloth.

j Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched, particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the apparatus.

k Only use attachments/accessories specifi ed by the manufacturer.

l Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specifi ed by the manufacturer or sold with the apparatus.

When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/apparatus combination to avoid injury from tip-over.

EN 5

m Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time. n Refer all servicing to qualifi ed service personnel. Servicing is required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way, such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped.

o Battery usage CAUTION – To prevent battery leakage which may result in bodily injury, property damage, or damage to the unit:

• Install all batteries correctly, + and -

• as marked on the unit.

Do not mix batteries (old and new or carbon and alkaline, etc.).

• Remove batteries when the unit is not used for a long time.

p Apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping or splashing. q Do not place any sources of danger on the apparatus (e.g. liquid fi lled objects, lighted candles). r This product may contain lead and mercury. Disposal of these materials may be regulated due to environmental considerations. For disposal or recycling information, please contact your local authorities or the Electronic Industries

Alliance: www.eiae.org.

• Where the MAINS plug or an appliance coupler is used as the disconnect device, the disconnect device shall remain readily operable.

Warning

Never remove the casing of this DCM250.

Never lubricate any part of this DCM250.

Never place this DCM250 on other electrical equipment.

Keep this DCM250 away from direct sunlight, naked fl ames or heat.

Caution

Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure or other unsafe operation.

Hearing safety

Listen at a moderate volume.

• Using headphones at a high volume can impair your hearing. This product can produce sounds in decibel ranges that may cause hearing loss for a normal person, even for exposure less than a minute. The higher decibel ranges are offered for those that may have already experienced some hearing loss.

• Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing ‘comfort level’ adapts to higher volumes of sound. So after prolonged listening, what sounds ‘normal’ can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. To guard against this, set your volume to a safe level before your hearing adapts and leave it there.

To establish a safe volume level:

• Set your volume control at a low setting.

• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, without distortion.

Listen for reasonable periods of time:

6 EN

• Be sure to use your equipment reasonably and take appropriate breaks.

Be sure to observe the following guidelines when using your headphones.

• Listen at reasonable volumes for reasonable periods of time.

Prolonged exposure to sound, even at normally ‘safe’ levels, can also cause hearing loss.

Be careful not to adjust the volume as your hearing adapts.

Do not turn up the volume so high that you can’t hear what’s around you.

You should use caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations. Do not use headphones while operating a motorized vehicle, cycling, skateboarding, etc.; it may create a traffi c hazard and is illegal in many areas.
