IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Your Sound Bar is designed and manufactured to operate within defined design limits, and misuse may
result in electric shock or fire. To prevent your Sound Bar from being damaged, the following rules should
be observed for its installation, use, and maintenance. Please read the following safety instructions before
operating your Sound Bar. Keep these instructions in a safe place for future reference. Please heed all
warnings and follow all instructions.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock or component damage, switch off the power before connecting other
components to your Sound Bar.
• When moving your Sound Bar from an area of low temperature to an area of high temperature, condensation
may form in the housing. Wait before turning on your Sound Bar to avoid causing fire, electric shock, or
component damage.
• Never push any object into the slots and openings on your Sound Bar enclosure. Do not place any objects on
the top of your Sound Bar. Doing so could short circuit parts causing a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquids
on your Sound Bar.
• Your Sound Bar should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the label on the AC/
DC Adapters. If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your dealer or local power
company.
• Only power of the marked voltage can be used for your Sound Bar. Any other voltage than the specified
voltage may cause fire or electric shock
• The power cord must be replaced when using different voltage than the voltage specified. For more
information, contact your dealer.
• Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounded plug.
• When connected to a power outlet, power is always flowing into your Sound Bar. To totally disconnect power,
unplug the power cord.
• Do not overload power strips and extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
• The wall socket should be located near your Sound Bar and be easily accessible
• Do not touch the power cord during lightning. To avoid electric shock, avoid handling the power cord during
electrical storms.
• Do not attempt to repair or service Sound Bar yourself. Opening or removing the front cover may expose you to
high voltages, electric shock, and other hazards. If repair is required, contact your dealer and refer all servicing
to qualified service personnel.
• Keep your Sound Bar away from moisture. Do not expose your Sound Bar to rain or moisture. If water penetrates
into your Sound Bar, unplug the power cord and contact your dealer. Continuous use in this case may result in
fire or electric shock.
• Do not use your Sound Bar if any abnormality occurs. If any smoke or odor becomes apparent, unplug the
power cord and contact your dealer immediately. Do not try to repair your Sound Bar yourself.
• Avoid using dropped or damaged appliances. If your Sound Bar is dropped and the housing is damaged, the
internal components may function abnormally. Unplug the power cord immediately and contact your dealer
for repair. Continued use of your Sound Bar may cause fire or electric shock.
• Do not install your Sound Bar in an area with heavy dust or high humidity. Operating your Sound Bar in
environments with heavy dust or high humidity may cause fire or electric shock.
• Ensure that the power cord and any other cables are unplugged before moving your Sound Bar.
• When unplugging your Sound Bar, hold the power plug, not the cord. Pulling on the power cord may damage
the wires inside the cord and cause fire or electric shock. When your Sound Bar will not be used for an extended
period of time, unplug the power cord.
• To reduce risk of electric shock, do not touch the connector with wet hands.
• Insert the remote control battery in accordance with instructions. Incorrect polarity may cause the battery to
leak which can damage the remote control or injure the operator.
• If any of the following occurs, contact the dealer:
- The power cord fails or frays
- Liquid sprays or any object drops into your Sound Bar
- Sound Bar is exposed to rain or other moisture
- Sound Bar is dropped or damaged in any way
- The performance of your Sound Bar changes substantially
• Unplug the power cord before cleaning your Sound Bar. Clean only with dry cloth. Do not use a liquid or a
spray cleaner on your Sound Bar. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
• Slots and openings in the back and bottom of the cabinet are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable
operation of your Sound Bar and to protect it from overheating, be sure these openings are not blocked or
covered. Do not place your Sound Bar in a bookcase or cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
• Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including
amplifiers) that produce heat.
• Your Sound Bar AC/DC Adapters are equipped with a three-pronged grounded plug (a plug with a third
grounding pin). This plug will fit only into a grounded power outlet. This is a safety feature. If your outlet does not
accommodate the three-pronged, have an electrician install the correct outlet, or use an adapter to ground
your Sound Bar safely.
• Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and
the point where they exit from the apparatus.
• Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
• Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table specified by the manufacturer, or sold with the apparatus.
When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/apparatus combination to avoid injury from tip-over.
• Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time.
• Refer all servicing to qualified service personal. Servicing is required when the apparatus has been damaged
in any way, such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into
the apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been
dropped.
• To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this apparatus to rain or moisture.
• The Apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping or splashing and that no objects filled with liquids, such as
vases, shall be placed on the apparatus.
• The main plug is used as the disconnect device, the disconnect device shall remain readily operable.
