Important Safeguards and Precautions
READ AND RETAIN ALL SAFETY AND
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS. HEED ALL
WARNINGS 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 firmly 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 fits into the outlet only one way. If it cannot
be fully inserted, try reversing it. If it still will not fit,
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, fire, or personal injury:
- Keep power cord away from heating appliances
and walking traffic. 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
fire hazards.
- Frayed cords, damaged plugs, and damaged or
cracked wire insulation are hazardous and should
be replaced by a qualified 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 fire 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 CHANGES
Do not place unit over or near a heater or radiator,
in direct sunlight, etc. If unit is suddenly moved
from a cold place to a warm place, moisture may
condense in unit and on the tape causing
damage.
6 TO AVOID PERSONAL INJURY
• Never place unit on support or stand 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.
• 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
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
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 safeguards.
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 qualified 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, odours, or noises.
Immediately unplug unit, and have it inspected by a
service technician to avoid potential fire and shock hazards.
• Never drop or push any object through openings in unit.
Touching internal parts may cause electric shock or fire 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 fire, 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 fluids,
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 instructions, 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 qualified service technician.
2 REPLACEMENT OF PARTS
Make sure the service technician uses only parts specified
by the manufacturer, or have equal safety characteristics
as original parts. The use of unauthorized substitutes may
result in fire, electric shock, or other hazards.
3 SAFETY CHECK AFTER SERVICING
After unit is serviced or repaired, request that a thorough safety
check be done as described in the manufacturer’s service
literature to ensure video unit is in safe operating condition.
Safety Precautions/Mesures de sécurité
