Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock. Unplug the display from the electric outlet and disconnect the antenna/cable TV system during a lightning storm or when left unused for long periods of time. This will prevent damage to the display caused by lightning and power-line surges.
If an outdoor antenna or cable system is connected to the display, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges and static charge buildups. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No.70-1984, provides information about 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.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help. Warning User must use shielded signal interface cables to maintain FCC compliance for the product. Provided with this display is a detachable power supply cord with IEC320 style terminations.
