SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

A triangle with a lightning symbol draws the user's attention to "dangerous voltage" without insulation in the cabinet which may be high enough to entail a risk of electric shock.

A triangle with an exclamation mark draws the user's attention to important instructions for use and maintenance in the accompanying manual, which should be studied.

A symbol for CLASS II (double insulation)

WARNING:

CAUTION:

TO MINIMISE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE

THE UNIT TO RAIN OR MOISTURE. DO NOT OPEN THE CABINET AS IT

CONTAINS DANGEROUS VOLTAGE. ONLY QUALIFIED TECHNICIANS ARE

ALLOWED TO CARRY OUT REPAIR AND SERVICE.

If the plug of the power cord needs to be replaced, it is important that the replacement is identical to the plug to be replaced, or that the new plug has been recommended by the manufacturer.

TO AVOID ELECTRICAL SHOCK, IT IS IMPORTANT TO INSERT THE PLUG

CORRECTLY INTO THE SOCKET.

03

Do not place the unit near sources of heat such as radiators, heat registers, ovens or other units that produce heat.

Power supply

Only the power supply indicated on the rating plate must be used for this unit.

If you are not sure which power supply you have, please contact the distributor or the local electricity supplier.

Water and moisture

The unit must not be placed close to water, such as bathtub, wash basin, kitchen sink or laundry tub, in a damp cellar or close to a swimming pool, etc.

Cleaning

Unplug the unit before cleaning.

Do not use liquid detergents and aerosol cleaning agents. Use a dry cloth.

Earthing or polarisation

If the plug cannot be inserted properly into the socket, or if the plug does not fit, the unit must not be used in your country.

Ventilation

The cabinet is provided with slots and openings to ensure ventilation and reliable operation and to protect the unit against overheating. Do not block or cover these openings. The openings must never be blocked, for instance by placing the unit on a bed, a sofa, a carpet or similar surface.

Power cords

Wiring must be organised to prevent people from stepping on the cables and to avoid pinching by objects placed on or beside them. Take special care around sockets and plug boxes and where the power cords leave the unit.

Overloading

Make sure that wall sockets, extension cords and plug boxes are not overloaded as this may lead to fire or electrical shock.

04

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Lightning

Unplug the unit for additional protection during thunder or when the unit is not used for prolonged periods. This will prevent damage to the unit from lightning and power surges.

Penetration of objects and liquid

Never push any foreign objects through the openings into the unit, as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short-circuit parts and thus cause fire or electric shock. Do not spill liquid on the unit.

Damage

Unplug the unit and contact qualified technicians in the following cases:

A) If the power cord or the plug is damaged.

B) If liquid has been spilled on the unit or objects have fallen into the unit.

C) If the unit has been exposed to rain or water.

D) If the unit does not work properly after adhering to the instructions in the operation manual. Only the settings described in the operation manual must be made as incorrect setting may result in damage and often will make it difficult for a qualified technician to make the unit work properly again.

E) If the unit has been dropped or damaged in any other way.

F) When the operation of the unit changes drastically, the unit requires service.

Accessories

Do not place the unit on unstable surfaces such as a trolley, stand, tripod, shelf or table.

The unit may fall and injure children or adults or be seriously damaged. Use only trolley, stand, tripod, shelf or table that is very stable or provided with the

Unit.The unit must be installed in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions and by means of installation equipment recommended by the manufacturer.

If the unit is placed on a trolley, the trolley must be moved very carefully. Sudden stops, unnecessary force and uneven surfaces may cause the trolley to turn over.

Service

Do not attempt to carry out any service work yourself. By opening or removing the cabinet, you will be exposed to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Any service work should be carried out by qualified technicians.

Spare parts

If spare parts are required, make sure that the service technician uses spare parts specified by the manufacturer or spare parts with the same characteristics as the original. Unauthorised spare parts may cause fire, electrical shock, etc.

Loads

Do not place heavy loads on the unit and do not step on it. The load may fall and cause serious injury to persons or damage to the unit.

Safety check

After service or repairs on the unit, ask the service technician to carry out a safety check to ensure that the unit is ready for use.

05

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Handling instructions

The top and back panel of the unit may become warm after prolonged use. This is not due to a defect.

Turn off the power when the unit is not used.

Protect the power cord

Follow the instructions below to prevent abnormal operation, electrical shock, fire or personal injury:

Hold the plug firmly when inserting it into the socket.

Avoid heat-producing devices.

Do not place objects on the power cord.

Do not carry out service work on or change the power cord.

Condensation

Condensation may occur in the following cases:

When the unit is moved directly from a cold to a warm place.

When the unit is used in a room where the radiator has just been switched on or a place where the cold air from the air-conditioning system is directed at the unit.

If the unit is used in the summer in a warm and humid room just after it has been moved from an air-conditioned room.

If there is steam or a high level of humidity in the room.

In case of condensation, the unit will not work properly. Turn off the unit. Unplug the unit and leave it for 2-3 hours. The unit will then have adapted to the environment and any condensation will have disappeared.

Positioning

Do not place the unit in any of the fol. places:

In sunlight, close to heat-producing devices or in an enclosed rack.

In places with high temperatures (40C or more) or high relative humidity (90% or more).

In dirty places as some internal parts may be damaged.

Do not put your fingers or any other objects into the unit

Touching the internal parts is dangerous and may cause injury or damage. Do not open the cabinet.

Do not place any foreign matter in the unit.

Interference

Placing the unit near a television set, radio or video player may cause poor picture and sound quality. In that case, move the unit further away from the television set, radio or video player.

06

CONNECTION

Do not turn on the power before all connections have been made correctly.

Check that all connections have been made correctly before turning on the power.

Check that the mains voltage is 230-240V AC50Hz before turning on the power.

Connection to the mains

Check that all other connections have been made correctly before inserting the mains plug into the wall socket.

Then insert the plug into a suitable socket.

If the unit is to be used abroad, you may need an adapter.

07

REMOTE CONTROL

Installation of batteries

Remove the cover as illustrated.

Replace the cover.

Position two batteries of the type

AAA/R03/UM4 in the battery compartment. Make sure that the orientation of the batteries is correct (see drawing at bottom).

Do not mix new and old batteries and do not use different types of batteries.

If the remote control is not used for prolonged periods, remove the batteries from the remote control to avoid corrosion.

Using the remote control

Direct the remote control at the sensor on the front panel of the unit. When the remote control signal is received, the unit reacts accordingly. The remote control works within a range of 6 metres.

Sometimes the remote control does not work well in strong light. You may have to move the unit if it is a problem.

Malfunction may occur if other remote controls are used near the unit.

Do not place any objects on the remote control, as the batteries may become flat if a key is depressed constantly.

Make sure that there are no obstacles between remote control and unit.

Do not position the unit behind tinted glass as it may reduce the maximum range of the remote control.

08

Some of the functions of the unit can only be performed by means of the remote control. Some functions are connected with the selected signal input source. Some buttons on the remote control may therefore not be available if the corresponding signal input source has not been selected.
