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 outlet 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

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, malodors, 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 through 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
