Notices and Safety Instructions
15. The apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping or splashing
and that no objects filled with liquids, such as vases, shall
be placed on the apparatus.
Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation to
ensure reliable operation of the CAMCORDER and to protect it
from overheating. These openings must not be blocked or
covered. Never place your CAMCORDER on a bed, sofa, rug,
or other similar surface: on or near a radiator or heat register.
This CAMCORDER should not be placed in a built-in installation
such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided
or the manufacturer's instructions have been adhered to.
17. POWER SOURCES:
The CAMCORDER should be operated only from the type of
power source indicated on the label.
If you are not sure of the type of power supply at your home,
consult your appliance dealer or local power company.
A CAMCORDER is intended to be operated from battery power,
or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
18. GROUNDING OR POLARIZATION:
This CAMCORDER may be equipped with either a polarized
2-wire AC line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the
other) or a 3-wire grounding type plug, a plug having a third
(grounding) pin. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug still fails to fit, contact
your electrician to replace your outlet. Do not defeat the safety
purpose of the polarized plug.
19. 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 or plugs, convenient
receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit.
20. OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING:
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the
CAMCORDER, be sure the antenna or cable system is
grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges
and built-up static charges, Section 810 of the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984, provides information
with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting
structure, grounding of the lead-in wire and supporting structure,
grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the
lead-in wire to an
antenna discharge unit, size of grounding to conductors, location
of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes
and requirements for the grounding electrode.
