IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1. Read these instructions.
2. Keep these instructions.
3. Heed all warnings.
4. Follow all instructions.
5. Do not use this apparatus near water.
6. Clean only with dry cloth.
7. Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in
accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
8. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators,
heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus (including
amplifiers) that produce heat.
9. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or
grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with
one wider than the other. A grounding-type plug has two
blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the
third prong are provided for your safety. If the provided
plug does not fit fully into your outlet, consult an electri-
cian for replacement of the obsolete outlet.
10. Protect the power cord from being walked on or
pinched particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles,
and the point where they exit from the apparatus.
11. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the
12. Use only with the cart, stand, tripod,

MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE LITERATURE ACCOMPANYING THIS
15. If an outside antenna is connected to the television
equipment, be sure the antenna system is grounded so
as to provide some protection against voltage surges
and built up static charges. In the U.S. Selection 810-21
of the National Electrical Code 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 elec-
trodes, and requirements for the grounding electrodes.
16. An outside antenna system should not be located in the
vicinity of overhead power lines or other electrical 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.
EXAMPLE OF ANTENNA GROUNDING ACCORDING
TO NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE, ANSI/NFPA 70
"Note to CATV system installer:
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer's
attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides guidelines for
proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable
ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the build-
ing, as close to the point of cable entry as practical."
17. Wall or Ceiling Mounting—The product should be
mounted to a wall or ceiling only as recommended by
18. Apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping or splashing
and no objects filled with liquids, such as vases, shall be
placed on the apparatus.
19. When the MAINS plug is used as the disconnect device,
