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  mounting  of  the  product 

should follow the manufacturer’s instructions and 

should use a mounting accessory recommended 

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 combination 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 re-

gard 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.
