INSTALLATION
1 POWER SOURCE CAUTION
Operate only from a power source indicated on
the unit or in this manual. If necessary, have
your Electric Utility Service Company or Video
Products Dealer verify the power source in your
home.
2 POLARIZED OR GROUNDING PLUG
As a safety feature, this Video product comes
with either a polarized power cord plug (one
blade is wider than the other), or a three-wire
grounding type plug.
POLARIZED PLUG CAUTION:
This plug will only fit into an outlet one way. If you
cannot fully insert the plug, try reversing it. If it still
will not fit, have an electrician install the proper wall
outlet. Do not defeat the safety feature by tampering
with the plug.
GROUNDING PLUG CAUTION:
This plug will only fit into a three-hole grounding
outlet. If necessary, have an electrician install the
proper outlet. Do not defeat the safety feature by
tampering with the plug.
3 POWER CORD
Make sure power cords are routed so that they
are not likely to have anything rest on them, roll
over them, or be in the way of walking traffic.
If an extension cord is used, make sure it also
has either a polarized or grounded plug and that
the cords can be securely connected. Frayed
cords, damaged plugs, and damaged or cracked
wire insulation are hazardous and should be
replaced by a qualified service technician.
Overloaded outlets and extension cords are fire
hazards and should be avoided.
4 DO NOT BLOCK VENTILATION HOLES
Ventilation openings in the cabinet release heat
generated during operation. If they are blocked,
heat build-up inside the unit can cause failures
that may result in a fire hazard or heat damage
to cassettes. For protection, follow these rules:
a. Never cover ventilation slots or the unit while
in use, or operate the unit when placed on a
bed, sofa, rug, or other soft surface.
b. Avoid built-in installation, such as a book
case or rack, unless proper ventilation is
provided.
5 AVOID EXTREMELY HOT LOCATIONS OR
SUDDEN TEMPERATURE CHANGES
Do not place the unit over or near any kind of
heater or radiator, in direct sunlight, inside a
closed vehicle, etc.. Do not move the unit
suddenly between areas of extreme temperature
variation. If the unit is suddenly moved from a
cold place to a warm place, moisture may
condense in the unit and on the tape.
6 TO AVOID PERSONAL INJURY
• Do not place unsecured
equipment on a sloping
surface.
• Do not place this unit on any
support that is not firm, level,
and adequately strong. The
unit could fall causing serious
injury to a child or adult and
damage to the unit.
• An appliance and cart combination should be
moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force,
and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance
and cart combination to overturn.
• Carefully follow all operating instructions and
use the manufacturer's recommended
accessories when operating this unit or
connecting it to any other equipment.
Congratulations
OUTDOOR ANTENNA INSTALLATION
1 SAFE ANTENNA AND CABLE CONNECTION
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the
equipment, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded
so as to provide some protection against built up static
charges and voltage surges.
Part 1 of the Canadian
Electrical Code, in USA
Section 810 of the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA
70, provides information with
respect 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.
2 KEEP ANTENNA CLEAR OF HIGH VOLTAGE POWER
LINES OR CIRCUITS
An outside antenna system should be located well away
from power lines, electric light or power circuits and where it
will never come into contact with these power sources if it
should happen to fall. When installing an outside antenna,
extreme care should be taken to avoid touching power lines,
circuits or other power sources as this could be fatal.
Because of the hazards involved, antenna installation should
be left to a professional.

USING THE VIDEO UNIT
If the unit has been in storage or moved to a new location, refer
first to the INSTALLATION section of these safeguards.
1 KEEP THIS VIDEO UNIT AWAY FROM WATER OR
MOISTURE OF ANY KIND.
2 IF EQUIPMENT IS EXPOSED TO RAIN, MOISTURE, OR
STRONG IMPACT, unplug the unit and have it inspected by
a qualified service technician before use.
3 DURING AN ELECTRICAL STORM
During a lightning storm, whether indoors or outdoors, or
before leaving the unit unused for extended periods of time,
disconnect all equipment from the power source as well as
the antenna and cable system.
4 WHEN THE UNIT IS PLUGGED IN
• Never expose the unit to rain or water. DO NOT
OPERATE if liquid has been spilled into the unit.
Immediately unplug the unit, and have it inspected by a
service technician. Fire and shock hazards can result from
electrical shorts caused by liquid contact inside.
• Never drop or push any object through openings in the
unit. Some internal parts carry hazardous voltages and
contact can cause electric shock or fire hazard.
• Avoid placing the unit directly above or below your TV set
as this may cause electrical interference. Keep all
magnets away from electronic equipment.
5 USING ACCESSORIES
Use only accessories recommended by the manufacturer to
avoid risk of fire, shock, or other hazards.
6 CLEANING THE UNIT
Unplug the unit. Then, use a clean, dry, chemically
untreated cloth to gently remove dust or debris. DO NOT
USE cleaning fluids, aerosols, or forced air that could overspray, or seep into the unit and cause electrical shock. Any
substance such as wax, adhesive tape, etc. may mar the
cabinet surface. Exposure to greasy, humid, or dusty areas
may adversely affect internal parts.
SERVICE
1 DO NOT SERVICE THIS PRODUCT YOURSELF
If, after carefully following the detailed operating instructions,
this Video product does not operate properly, do not attempt
to open or remove covers, or make any adjustments not
described in the manual. Unplug the unit and contact a
qualified service technician.
2 IF REPLACEMENT PARTS ARE REQUIRED
Make sure the service technician uses only parts specified
by the manufacturer, or those having the same safety
characteristics as the original parts. The use of unauthorized
substitutes may result in fire, electric shock, or other
hazards.
3 HAVE THE SERVICE TECHNICIAN PERFORM A SAFETY
CHECK
After any service or repairs to the unit, request the service
technician to conduct a thorough safety check as described
in the manufacturer’s service literature to ensure that the
video unit is in safe operating condition.
