Warning: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this
unit to rain or moisture.
The graphic symbol of a lightning flash with an arrow point within a trian-
gle signifies that there is dangerous voltage within the unit and it
poses a hazard to anyone removing the cover to gain access to the
interior of the unit. Only qualified service personnel should
make any such attempt.
The graphic symbol of an exclamation point within an equilateral trian-
gle warns a user of the device that it is necessary to refer to the
instruction manual and its warnings for proper operation of the unit.
Do not place this unit on an unstable cart, stand or tripod,
bracket or table. The unit may fall, causing serious injury to a
child or adult and serious damage to the unit. Use only with a
cart, stand, tripod, bracket or table recommended by the man-
ufacturer or sold with the unit. Any mounting of the device on a
wall or ceiling should follow the maufacturer's instructions and
should use a mounting accessory recommended by the manu-
An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops,
excessive force and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combi-
nation to overturn.
Read and follow all the safety and operating instructions before connecting or
using this unit. Retain this notice and the owner's manual for future reference.
All warnings on the unit and in it's operating instructions should be adhered to.
Do not use this unit near water; for example, near a bath tub, washbowl, kitchen
sink, laundry tub, in a wet basement or near a swimming pool.
The unit should be installed so that its location or position does not interfere with
its proper ventilation. For example, it should not be situated on a bed, sofa, rug
or similar surface that may block the ventilation openings; or placed in a built-in
installation, such as a bookcase or cabinet, that may impede the flow of air
through its ventilation openings.
The unit should be situated from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers,
stoves or other devices (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
The unit should be connected to a power supply outlet only of the voltage and
frequency marked on its rear panel.
The power supply cord should be routed so that it is not likely to be walked on or
pinched, especially near the plug, convenience receptacles, or where the cord
exits from the unit.
Unplug the unit from the wall outlet before cleaning. Never use benzine, thinner
or other solvents for cleaning. Use only a soft damp cloth.
The power supply cord of the unit should be unplugged from the wall outlet when
it is to be unused for a long period of time.
Care should be taken so that objects do not fall, and liquids are not spilled into
the enclosure through any openings.
This unit should be serviced by qualified service personnel when:
A. The power cord or the plug has been damaged; or
B. Objects have fallen, or liquid has been spilled into the unit; or
C. The unit has been exposed to rain or liquids of any kind; or
D. The unit does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change in
E. The device has been dropped or the enclosure damaged.
DO NOT ATTEMPT SERVICING OF THIS UNIT YOURSELF.
REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE
Upon completion of any servicing or repairs, request the service shop's assur-
ance that only Factory Authorized Replacement Parts with the same characteris-
tics as the original parts have been used, and that the routine safety checks
have been performed to guarantee that the equipment is in safe operating condi-
REPLACEMENT WITH UNAUTHORIZED PARTS MAY RESULT IN FIRE,
ELECTRIC SHOCK OR OTHER HAZARDS.
POUR PREVENIR LES CHOCS ELECTRIQUES NE PAS UTILIER
CETTE FICHE POLARISEE AVEC UN PROLONGATEUR, UNE
PRISE DE COURANT OU UNE AUTRE SORTIE DE COURANT,
SAUF SI LES LAMES PEUVENT ETRE INSEREES A FOND SANS
EN LAISSER AUCUNE PARTIE A DECOUVERT.
TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK DO NOT USE THIS POLARIZED
PLUG WITH AN EXTENSION CORD, RECEPTACLE OR OTHER
OUTLET UNLESS THE BLADES CAN BE FULLY INSERTED TO
PREVENT BLADE EXPOSURE.
If an indoor antenna is used (either built into the set or installed separately),
never allow any part of the antenna to touch the metal parts of other electrical
appliances such as a lamp, TV set etc.
Any outdoor antenna must be located away from all power lines.
OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING
If an outside antenna is connected to your tuner or tuner-preamplifier, be sure
the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against volt-
age 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 to
an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna dis-
charge unit, connection to grounding electrodes and requirements for the
a. Use No. 10 AWG (5.3mm2) copper, No. 8 AWG (8.4mm2) aluminium, No. 17
AWG (1.0mm2) copper-clad steel or bronze wire, or larger, as a ground wire.
b. Secure antenna lead-in and ground wires to house with stand-off insulators
spaced from 4-6 feet (1.22 - 1.83 m) apart.
c. Mount antenna discharge unit as close as possible to where lead-in enters
d. Use jumper wire not smaller than No.6 AWG (13.3mm2) copper, or the equiva-
lent, when a separate antenna-grounding electrode is used. see NEC Section

CODE INSTRUCTIONS CONTAINED IN ARTICLE 810 - RADIO AND TELEVI-
NOTE TO CATV SYSTEM INSTALLER: This reminder is provided to
call the CATV system installer's attention to Article 820-22 of the
National Electrical Code that provides guidelines for proper grounding
and, in particular, specifies that the ground cable ground shall be con-
nected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point of
cable entry as practical.
