If the plug contains a removable fuse cover you must
ensure that it is refitted when the fuse is replaced.
If you lose the fuse cover the plug must not be used until a
replacement cover is obtained.

If a new plug is to be fitted please observe the wiring code as stated below.
If in any doubt please consult a qualified electrician.
IMPORTANT
The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
Blue: Neutral, Brown: Live.
As these colours may not correspond with the coloured markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured Blue must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter N or coloured Black or Blue.
The wire which is coloured Brown must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter L or coloured Brown or Red.
WARNING: DO NOT CONNECT EITHER WIRE TO THE EARTH
TERMINAL WHICH IS MARKED WITH THE LETTER E, BY THE

instructions below. Illustrations may differ from actual AC mains plug.
1. Open the fuse cover with a screwdriver.
Figure A
Figure B

Placement
Set the system up on an even surface away from direct
sunlight, high temperatures, high humidity, and excessive
vibration. These conditions can damage the system and
other components, thereby shorten the system’s service life.
Do not hang from or climb on the system. This may result in
serious injury.
Place the television properly on the system. Use the Fallprevention belt to prevent the television from falling over
and causing serious damage or injury.
Do not place items heavier than the recommended weight
on the system or the shelves.
Be careful not to get hit by the protruded TV.
When you use a stand with a rotating function, install it so it
does not protrude from the top plate of the system and do
not put hands or objects within the rotation range.
When you use a stand with a rotating function, install the system
keeping the distance from the wall so the TV does not hit the wall.
Do not apply oil on the casters (wheels).
Be careful not to catch your fingers when installing the system.
Do not insert your toe into the opening at the bottom of the
system when moving or installing the system.
Voltage
Do not use high voltage power sources. This can overload
the system and cause a fire.
Do not use a DC power source. Check the source carefully when
setting the system up on a ship or other place where DC is used.
AC mains lead protection
Ensure the AC mains lead is connected correctly and not
damaged. Poor connection and lead damage can cause a fire or
electric shock. Do not pull, bend, or place the system on the lead.
Grasp the plug firmly when unplugging the lead. Do not
move the system if AC mains lead is still connected to socket
outlet. Pulling the AC mains lead can cause electric shock.
Do not handle the plug with wet hands. This can cause electric shock.
Remove AC mains plug from socket outlet when not using
for a long period.
Foreign matter
Do not let metal objects fall inside the system. This can
cause electric shock or malfunction.
Do not let liquids get into the system. This can cause electric
shock or malfunction. If this occurs, immediately disconnect
the system from the AC mains lead and contact your dealer.
Do not spray insecticides onto or into the system. They contain
flammable gases which can ignite if sprayed into the system.
Glass shelf
Protect the board from scratching.
Do not touch the board if they crack. Consult your dealer for
immediate replacement.
Do not damage the glass or make an impact on it.

Do not attempt to repair this system by yourself. If sound is
interrupted, indicators fail to light, smoke appears, or any other
problem that is not covered in these instructions occurs, disconnect
the AC mains lead and contact your dealer or an authorized service
centre. Electric shock or damage to the system can occur if the system
is repaired, disassembled or reconstructed by unqualified persons.
Extend operating life by disconnecting the system from the
AC mains if it is not to be used for a long time.
