is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated “dangerous 

voltage” within the product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient magni-

tude to constitute a risk of electric shock.

The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert 

the user to the presence of important operation and servicing instruc-

tions in the literature accompanying the appliance.

To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this device to rain or moisture. Dangerous high 

voltage is present inside the enclosure. Do not open the cabinet.

CAUTION:

To prevent electric shock, match wide blade of plug to wide slot of outlet and fully insert.

Read Instructions:

 All the safety and operating instructions should be read 

before the product is operated.

Retain Instructions:

 The safety and operating instructions should be re-

tained for future reference.

Heed Warnings:

 All warnings on the product and in the operating instruc-

tions should be adhered to.

Follow Instructions:

 All operating and usage instructions should be followed.

Cleaning:

 Unplug this product from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use 

liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.

Attachments:

  Use  only  attachments  recommended  by  the  manufacturer. 

Use of other attachments may be hazardous.

Water and Moisture: 

Do not use this product near water (e.g., near a bath 

tub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, in wet basements, or near a swim-

ming pool and the like).

Accessories:

 Do not place this product on an unstable 

cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. Use only with carts, 

stands,  tripods,  brackets,  or  tables  recommended  by 

the manufacturer or sold with the product. Any mount-

ing  of  the  product  should  follow  the  manufacturer’s 

instructions and should use a mounting accessory rec-

ommended by the manufacturer.
A product and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, 

excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the product and cart com-

bination to overturn.

Ventilation:

 Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation to 

ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect it from overheating. 

These openings should never be blocked by placing the product on a bed, 

sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This product should not be placed in a 

built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is 

provided or the manufacturer instructions have been adhered to.

Power  Sources:

  This  product  should  be  operated  only  from  the  type  of 

power source indicated on the rating label. If you are not sure of the type of 

power supply to your home, consult your product dealer or local power com-

pany. For products intended to operate from battery power or other sources, 

refer to the operating instructions.

Grounding or Polarization:

 This product may be equipped with a polarized 

alternating-current line plug that has one blade wider than the other. This plug 

will only fit into the power outlet in one direction. This is a safety feature. If you 

are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the direction of 

the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact an electrician to replace the 

obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.

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 at the point which they exit from the product.

Protective  Attachment  Plug:

  The  product  may  be  equipped  with  an  at-

tachment  plug  with  overload  protection.  This  is  a  safety  feature.  See  the 

operating instructions for replacement or directions to reset the protective 

device. If replacement of the plug is required, be sure the service technician 

has used a replacement plug that has the same overload protection as the 

original plug as specified by the manufacturer.

Outdoor Antenna Grounding:

 If an outside antenna is connected to the 

product,  be  sure  the  antenna  system  is  grounded  so  as  to  provide  some 

protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of 

the National Electrical Code, ANS/NFPA 70 provides information with regard 

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 (see figure).

Lightning:

  For  added  protection  for  this  product,  unplug  it  from  the  wall 

outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a lightning storm 

or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will 

prevent damage to the product due to lightning or power-line surges.

Power Lines:

 An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicin-

ity of overhead power lines or other electric light or 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.

Overloading:

 Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral con-

venience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.

Object and Liquid Entry:

 Never push objects of any kind into this product 

through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points or shout-out 

parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind 

on the product.

Servicing:

  Do  not  attempt  to  service  this  product  yourself  as  opening  or 

removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. 

Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

Damage Requiring Service:

 Unplug this product from the wall outlet and 

refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions: 

a) when the power-supply or plug is damaged; b) if liquid has been spilled 

or if objects have fallen into the product; c) if the product has been exposed 

to rain or water; d) if the product 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 re-

store the product to its normal operation; e) if the product has been dropped 

or damaged in any way; f) when the product exhibits a distinct change in 

performance—this indicates a need for service.

Replacement  Parts:

  When  replacement  parts  are  required,  be  sure  that 

your service technician has used replacement parts specified by the manu-

facturer or have the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized 

substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other hazards.

Safety Check:

 Upon completion of any service or repairs to this product, 

ask the service technician to perform safety checks to ensure that the prod-

uct is in proper operating condition.

Wall  or  Ceiling  Mounting:

  The  product  should  be  mounted  to  a  wall  or 

ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer.

Heat:

 The product should be situated away from heat sources such as ra-

diators, heat registers, stoves, or other products (including amplifiers) that 

produce heat.
