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
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
three-wire 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.

OUTDOOR ANTENNA INSTALLATION
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.

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

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 48 kHz/16 bit up to 96 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.
