Important Safeguards and Precautions
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, FIRE, INJURY TO PERSONS OR DAMAGE TO
THIS PRODUCT, READ AND RETAIN ALL SAFETY AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS. HEED ALL
WARNINGS IN THE MANUAL AND ON THE PRODUCT.
INSTALLATION
OUTDOOR ANTENNA INSTALLATION
1
POWER SOURCE CAUTION
Operate only from a power source indicated on the unit or in this
manual. If necessary, have your Electric Utility Service
Company or Video Products Dealer verify the power source in
your home.
2 POLARIZED OR GROUNDING PLUG
As a safety feature, this product comes with either a polarized
power cord plug (one blade is wider than the other), or a threewire grounding type plug.
POLARIZED PLUG CAUTION:
This plug will only fit into an outlet one way. If you cannot fully insert
the plug, try reversing it. If it still will not fit, have an electrician
install the proper wall outlet. Do not defeat the safety feature by
tampering with the plug.
GROUNDING PLUG CAUTION:
This plug will only fit into a three-hole grounding outlet. If necessary,
have an electrician install the proper outlet. Do not defeat the safety
feature by tampering with the plug.
3 POWER CORD
Make sure power cords are routed so that they are not likely to
have anything rest on them, roll over them, or be in the way of
walking traffic. If an extension cord is used, make sure it also
has either a polarized or grounded plug and that the cords can
be securely connected. Frayed cords, damaged plugs, and
damaged or cracked wire insulation are hazardous and should
be replaced by a qualified service technician.
Overloaded outlets and extension cords are fire hazards and
should be avoided.
4 DO NOT BLOCK VENTILATION HOLES
Ventilation openings in the cabinet release heat generated during
operation. If they are blocked, heat build-up inside the unit can
cause failures that may result in a fire hazard or heat damage to
cassettes or discs.
For protection, follow these rules:
a. Never cover ventilation slots or the unit while in use, or
operate the unit when placed on a bed, sofa, rug, or other
soft surface.
b. Avoid built-in installation, such as a book case or rack,
unless proper ventilation is provided.
5 PLACEMENT: AVOID EXTREMELY HOT LOCATIONS OR
SUDDEN TEMPERATURE CHANGES
Do not place the unit over or near heater or radiator, in direct
sunlight, inside closed vehicles, in high temperature [over 104°F
(40°C)], or in over 75% humidity. If the unit is suddenly moved
from a cold place to a warm one, moisture may condense in the
unit and on the tape causing damage. Never subject the unit to
vibration, impact, or place it so that the surface is tilted as
internal parts may be seriously damaged.
6 TO AVOID PERSONAL INJURY
• Do not place unsecured equipment on a
sloping surface.
• Do not place this unit on any support that
is not firm, level, and adequately strong.
The unit could fall causing serious injury
to a child or adult and damage to the unit.
• An appliance and cart combination should
be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and
uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart
combination to overturn.
• Carefully follow all operating instructions and use the
manufacturer's recommended accessories when operating
this unit or connecting it to any other equipment.
1 SAFE ANTENNA AND CABLE CONNECTION
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the equipment, be sure the
antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against
built up static charges and voltage surges.
Section 810 of the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70
(in Canada, part 1 of the Canadian Electrical
Code) provides 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.
2 KEEP ANTENNA CLEAR OF HIGH VOLTAGE POWER LINES OR
CIRCUITS
An outside antenna system should be located well away from power lines,
electric light or power circuits and where it will never come into contact with
these power sources if it should happen to fall. When installing an outside
antenna, extreme care should be taken to avoid touching power lines, circuits or
other power sources as this could be fatal. Because of the hazards involved,
antenna installation should be left to a professional.

1 KEEP THE UNIT AWAY FROM WATER OR MOISTURE OF ANY KIND.
2 IF EQUIPMENT IS EXPOSED TO RAIN, MOISTURE, OR STRONG
IMPACT, unplug the unit and have it inspected by a qualified service technician
before use.
3 DURING AN ELECTRICAL STORM
During a lightning storm, whether indoors or outdoors, or before leaving the unit
unused for extended periods of time, disconnect all equipment from the power
source as well as the antenna and cable system.
4 WHEN THE UNIT IS PLUGGED IN
• Never expose the unit to rain or water. DO NOT OPERATE if liquid has been
spilled into the unit. Immediately unplug the unit, and have it inspected by a
service technician. Fire and shock hazards can result from electrical shorts
caused by liquid contact inside.
• Never drop or push any object through openings in the unit. Some internal parts
carry hazardous voltages and contact can cause electric shock or fire hazard.
Do not put any foreign object on the disc tray.
• Avoid placing the unit directly above or below your TV set as this may cause
electrical interference. Keep all magnets away from electronic equipment.
5 USING ACCESSORIES
Use only accessories recommended by the manufacturer to avoid risk of fire,
shock, or other hazards.
6 CLEANING THE UNIT
Unplug the unit. Then, use a clean, dry, chemically untreated cloth to gently
remove dust or debris. DO NOT USE cleaning fluids, aerosols, or forced air that
could over-spray, or seep into the 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.

• Follow cleaning tape instructions carefully.
Excessive use of tape can shorten head life.
Built-in Head Cleaner
A clean video head helps produce a clear picture.
So, we have equipped your DECK with a built-in, nonchemical head cleaning system that helps prevent
clogging of the video heads. Cleaning is performed
each time you load or unload a video cassette.
• This feature is preventative only, If your video
heads are seriously clogged, consider the use of a
chemical non-abrasive head cleaning kit.
Cleaning DECK
Loading the Batteries
1) Open cover.
2) Insert batteries as
marked.
Use a soft cloth or dusting attachment of a vacuum
cleaner to remove dust from the ventilation holes on
the back sides and bottom of the cabinet. Plastic
surfaces are easily scratched and can be marred by
alcohol and various solvents. Avoid excessive use of
oil-based furniture polishes since the materials used in
the cabinet will accumulate more dust. We recommend
using a non-abrasive, antistatic cleaner and polisher.

For your reference:
• Dolby Digital is a digital sound compression technique developed by the Dolby Laboratories
Licensing Corporation. Supporting 5.1-channel surround sound, as well as stereo (2-channel)
sound, this technique enables a large quantity of sound data to be efficiently recorded on a disc.
• Linear PCM is a signal recording format used in CDs. While CDs are recorded in 44.1 kHz/16 bit,
DVDs are recorded in 44.1 kHz/16 bit ~ 192 kHz/24 bit.
• If you have a Dolby Pro Logic Surround decoder, you will obtain the full benefit of Pro Logic from
the same DVD movies that provide full 5.1 channel Dolby Digital soundtracks, as well as from
titles with the Dolby Surround mark. For information on Panasonic or Technics Dolby Pro Logic
Surround Sound Decoders please contact your local dealer.
