1. READ INSTRUCTIONS - All the safety and operating instructions should be
read before the apparatus is operated.
2. RETAIN INSTRUCTIONS - The safety and operating instructions should be
retained for future reference.
3. HEED WARNINGS - All warnings on the apparatus and in the operating
instructions should be adhered to.
4. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS - All operating and use instructions should be
5. CLEANING - Unplug this apparatus from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do
not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
EXCEPTION: An apparatus that is meant for uninterrupted service and, that
for some specific reason, such as the possibility of the loss of an authorization
code for a CATV converter, is not intended to be unplugged by the user for
cleaning or any other purpose, may exclude the reference to unplugging the
apparatus in the cleaning description otherwise required in item 5.
6. ATTACHMENTS - Do not use attachments not recommended by the
apparatus manufacturer as they may cause hazards.
7. WATER AND MOISTURE - Do not use this apparatus near water, for
example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet
basement, or near a swimming pool, and the like.
8. ACCESSORIES - Do not place this apparatus on an unstable
cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The apparatus may fall,
causing serious injury to someone, and serious damage to
the apparatus. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket,
or table recommended by the manufacturer, or sold with
the apparatus. Any mounting of the apparatus should
follow the manufacturer’s instructions and should use a
mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer. An apparatus and
cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and
uneven surfaces may cause the apparatus and cart combination to overturn.
AMEUBLES - Cet appareil ne doit être placé que sur un meuble (avec
ou sans roulettes) recommandé par le fabricant. Si vous l’installez sur un
meuble à roulettes, déplacez les deux ensembles avec précaution. Un
arrêt brusque, l’utilisation d’une force excessive et des surfaces irrégulières
risquent de déstabiliser l’ensemble et de le renverser.
9. VENTILATION - Slots and openings in the cabinet and the back or bottom are
provided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the apparatus and
to protect it from overheating, these openings must not be blocked or covered.
The openings should never be blocked by placing the apparatus on a bed, sofa,
carpet, rug, or other similar surface. This apparatus should never be placed
near or over a radiator or heat register. This apparatus should not be placed
in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is
provided or the manufacturer’s instructions have been adhered to.
10. POWER SOURCES - This apparatus should be operated only from the type
of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the
type of power supply to your home, consult your apparatus dealer or local
power company. For the apparatus’s intended to operate from battery
power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
11. GROUNDING OR POLARIZATION - This apparatus is equipped with a
polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having one blade wider than
the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety
feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing
the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace
your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
12. POWER-CORD PROTECTION - Power-supply cords should be routed so
that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon
or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from the apparatus.
13. OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING - If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the apparatus, be sure the antenna or cable system
is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and
built-up static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/
NFPA No. 70, 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. (Fig. A)

14. LIGHTNING - For added protection for this apparatus receiver during a
lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods
of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable
system. This will prevent damage to the apparatus due to lightning and
15. POWER LINES - An outside antenna system should not be located in the
vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light of power circuits, or
where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside
antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such
power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
16. OVERLOADING - Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this
can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
17. OBJECT AND LIQUID ENTRY - Never push objects of any kind into this
apparatus through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points
or short out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill
liquid of any kind on the apparatus.
18. SERVICING - Do not attempt to service this apparatus yourself as opening
or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards.
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
19. DAMAGE REQUIRING SERVICE - Unplug this apparatus from the wall
outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
a. When the power supply cord or plug is damaged or frayed.
b. If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the apparatus.
c. If the apparatus has been exposed to rain or water.
d. If the apparatus does not operate normally by following the operating
instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the
operating instructions, as improper adjustment of other controls may
result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified
technician to restore the apparatus to its normal operation.
e. If the apparatus has been dropped or damaged in any way.
f. When the apparatus exhibits a distinct change in performance, this
indicates a need for service.
20. REPLACEMENT PARTS - When replacement parts are required, be sure the
service technician uses replacement parts specified by the manufacturer that
have the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized substitutions
may result in fire, electric shock, injury to persons or other hazards.
21. SAFETY CHECK - Upon completion of any service or repairs to this
apparatus, ask the service technician to perform routine safety checks to
determine that the apparatus is in proper operating condition.
22. HEAT - This apparatus should be situated away from heat sources such as
radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other products (including amplifiers) that
The model and serial numbers of this unit may be found on the cabinet.
You should record and retain those numbers for future reference.
