display where the power cord is subject to damage.
Do not use this display near water such as near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink,
laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool.

heat generated during operation. If these openings are blocked, built-up heat can
cause failures which may result in a fire hazard. Therefore, NEVER:
Block the bottom ventilation slots by placing the display on a bed, sofa, rug, etc.
Place the display in a built-in enclosure unless proper ventilation is provided.
Cover the openings with cloth or other material.
Place the display near or over a radiator or heat source.
