7) Water and Moisture - Do not use this product near water - for
example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry

8) Accessories - Do not place this product on an unstable cart,

serious injury to a child or adult, and serious damage to the
product. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table
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 recom-
mended by the manufacturer.
9) 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.
10)Ventilation - Slots and openings in the cabi-
net are provided for ventilation and to
ensure reliable operation of the product and
to protect it from overheating, and these
openings must not be blocked or covered.
The 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 book-
case or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the manu-
facturer's instructions have been adhered to.
11)Power Sources - This product 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 product deal-
er or local power company. For products intended to operate from
battery power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
12)Grounding or Polarization - This product may be 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.

nience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the product.
14)Lightning - For added protection for this product during a light-
ning 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
product due to lightning and power-line surges.

ed in the vicinity 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

or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.

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

this product 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 product.
