Important Safeguards and Pre cau tions

READ AND RETAIN ALL SAFETY AND OP-

ERATING INSTRUCTIONS. HEED ALL WARN-

INGS IN THE MANUAL AND ON UNIT

INSTALLATION

1 POWER SOURCE CAUTION

Operate only from power source indicated on unit or in this manual. If uncertain, have your Electric Utility

Service Company or Video Products Dealer verify your home power source.

2 POWER CORD PLUG

For safety, this unit has a polarized type plug (one wide blade), or a three-wire grounding type plug.

Always hold the plug fi rmly and make sure your hands are dry when plugging in or unplugging the AC power cord. Regularly remove dust, dirt, etc. on the plug.

POLARIZED PLUG CAUTION:

The plug fi ts into outlet one way. If it cannot be fully inserted, try reversing it. If it still will not fi t, have an electrician install the proper wall outlet. Do not tamper with the plug.

GROUNDING PLUG CAUTION:

The plug requires a three-hole grounding outlet.

If necessary, have an electrician install the proper outlet.

Do not tamper with the plug.

3 POWER CORD

To avoid unit malfunction, and to protect against electrical shock, fi re or personal injury:

- Keep power cord away from heating appliances and walking traffi c. Do not rest heavy objects on, or roll such objects over the power cord.

- Do not tamper with the cord in any way.

- An extension cord should have the same type plug

(polarized or grounding) and must be securely connected.

- Overloaded wall outlets or extension cords are fi re hazards.

- Frayed cords, damaged plugs, and damaged or cracked wire insulation are hazardous and should be replaced by a qualifi ed electrician.

4 DO NOT BLOCK VENTILATION HOLES

Ventilation openings in the cabinet release heat generated during operation. If blocked, heat build-up may result in a fi re hazard or heat damage to cassettes.

For your protection:

a. Never cover ventilation slots while unit is ON, or operate unit while placed on a bed, sofa, rug, or other soft surface.

b. Avoid built-in installation, such as a book case or rack, unless properly ventilated.

5 AVOID EXTREMELY HOT LOCATIONS OR

SUDDEN TEMPERATURE CHANG ES

Do not place unit over or near a heater or ra di a tor, in di rect sunlight, etc. If unit is sud den ly moved from a cold place to a warm place, mois ture may condense in unit and on the tape caus ing damage.

6 TO AVOID PERSONAL INJURY

• Never place unit on support or stand that is not fi rm, level, and adequately strong.

The unit could fall causing serious injury to a child or adult and damage to the unit.

• Move any appliance and cart combination with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause objects to overturn.

• Carefully follow all operating instructions.

OUTDOOR ANTENNA INSTALLATION

1 SAFE ANTENNA AND CABLE CONNECTION

An outside antenna or cable system must be properly grounded to provide some protection against built up static charges and voltage.

Section 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 (in Canada, part 1 of the Canadian Electrical

Code) provides information regarding proper grounding of the mast and supporting

2 KEEP ANTENNA CLEAR OF HIGH VOLTAGE POWER LINES OR

CIRCUITS

Locate an outside antenna system well away from power lines and electric light or power circuits so it will never touch these power sources should it ever fall. When installing antenna, absolutely never touch power lines, circuits or other power sources as this could be fatal.

USING THE UNIT

Before unit is brought out of storage or moved to a new location, refer again to the INSTALLATION section of these safe guards.

1 KEEP UNIT WELL AWAY FROM WATER OR MOISTURE, such as vases, sinks, tubs, etc.

2 IF EXPOSED TO RAIN, MOISTURE, OR STRONG IMPACT,

unplug unit and have it inspected by a qualifi ed service technician before use.

3 ELECTRICAL STORMS

During a lightning storm, or before leaving unit unused for extended periods of time, disconnect all equipment from the power source as well as the antenna and cable system.

4 WHEN UNIT IS PLUGGED IN

• DO NOT OPERATE IF:

- liquid has spilled into unit.

- unit was dropped or otherwise damaged.

- unit emits smoke, malodorous, or noises.

Immediately unplug unit, and have it inspected by a service technician to avoid potential fi re and shock hazards.

• Never drop or push any object through openings in unit.

Touching internal parts may cause electric shock or fi re hazard.

• Keep magnetic objects, such as speakers, away from unit to avoid electrical interference.

5 USING ACCESSORIES

Use only accessories recommended by the manufacturer to avoid risk of fi re, shock, or other hazards.

6 CLEANING UNIT

Unplug unit. Use a clean, dry, chemically untreated cloth to gently remove dust or debris. DO NOT USE cleaning fl uids, aerosols, or forced air that could over-spray, or seep into 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 PRODUCT YOURSELF

If, after carefully following detailed operating in struc tions, the unit does not operate properly, do not attempt to open or remove covers, or make any adjustments not described in the manual.

Unplug unit and contact a qualifi ed service tech ni cian.

2 REPLACEMENT OF PARTS

Make sure the service technician uses only parts specifi ed by the manufacturer, or have equal safety char ac ter is tics as original parts. The use of unauthorized substitutes may result in fi re, electric shock, or other hazards.

3 SAFETY CHECK AFTER SERVICING

After unit is serviced or repaired, request that a through safety check be done as described in the manufacturer’s service literature to ensure video unit is in safe operating condition.

Safety Precautions

Warning : To prevent fi re or shock hazard, do not expose this equipment to rain or mois ture.

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