• Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this TV is equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug having one blade wider than the other. This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact your electrician to replace your outlet.

• Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so that they will not be walked on or pinched by items placed on or against them. Pay particular attention to cord placement at plugs, convenience receptacles, and at the point where they exit from the unit.

• Unplug the TV receiver from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a lightning storm or when left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent damage to the unit due to lightning and power-line surges.

• An outside antenna system should not be placed in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. Avoid overhead power lines. When installing an outside antenna system, be extremely careful to keep from touching the power lines or circuits. Contact with such lines might be fatal.

• Do not overload the wall outlet or extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.

• Do not insert foreign objects through openings in the unit, as they may touch dangerous voltages or cause damage. Never spill liquid of any kind on the TV receiver.

• Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the TV receiver, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Read 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.

Cleaning and Maintaining Your TV

With proper care, your TV unit will give you many years of service. Please follow these guidelines to get the maximum performance from your TV.

Placement

• Do not place the TV near extremely hot, cold, humid or dusty places.

• Do not place the TV near appliances with electric motors that create magnetic fields, such as vacuum cleaners.

• Keep the ventilation openings clear; do not place the TV on a soft surface, such as cloth or paper.

• Place the TV in a vertical position only.

Liquids

• Do not handle liquids near or on the TV. Liquids that spill into it can cause serious damage.

Cabinet

• Never open the cabinet or touch the parts inside.

• Wipe your TV with a clean, dry cloth. Never use water, cleaning fluids, wax, or chemicals.

• Do not put heavy objects on top of the cabinet.

Temperature

• If your TV is suddenly moved from a cold to a warm place, unplug the power cord, and allow at least two hours for moisture that may have formed inside the unit to dry completely.

Using Your TV in Another Country

If you plan to take your TV with you to a foreign country, please be aware of the different television systems that are in use around the world. A TV designed for one system may not work properly with another system due to differences in the TV channel frequencies.
