Cleaning
• Position your Video so that no
bright light or sunlight falls directly
onto it.
• Ensure that your Video is placed in
a position to allow a free flow of
air.
• Care should be taken not to
expose your Video to any
unnecessary vibration, moisture,
dust or heat.
• The apparatus shall not be
exposed to dripping or splashing
and that no objects filled with
liquids, such as vases, shall be
placed on the apparatus.
• During electrical storms it is
advisable to unplug both the aerial
cable and mains plug to prevent
accidental damage to your Video
and TV.
• Do not operate your Video if it is
damaged.
• If your Video still does not operate
properly, unplug it and call your
dealer. Your Video should not be
repaired by anyone except
qualified service personnel.
• Never remove the top cover of
your Video as this can expose you
to very high voltage and other
hazards.
1 Unplug the Video from the mains
supply.
2 Clean the cabinet with a soft
damp cloth, do not apply liquid
cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
Never spray cleaning liquids on or
near the Video.
Video head cleaning
High quality video tapes will not
normally deposit dirt onto the video
heads, but old or damaged tapes
may. This dirt can accumulate on the
video heads after a long period of
time and cause the picture to
become blurred or broken up.
To clean the video heads use a video
heads cleaning tape available from
electrical stores.
The appliance is not intended for use by young children or frail persons
without supervision.
Young Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with
appliance.
If the appliance is supplied from a cord extension set or an electrical portable
outlet device, the cord extension set on electrical portable outlet device must be
positioned so that it is not subject to splashing or ingress of moisture.
