stops, excessive force and uneven sur-
faces may cause the product and cart
combination to overturn.
10. Ventilation. Slots and openings in the cabinet
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 bookcase or rack, unless proper ventilation is pro-
vided or the manufacturer’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
dealer or local power company. For products intend-
ed to operate from battery power, or other sources,
refer to the operating instructions.
12. 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.
13. 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
at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point
where they exit from the product.
14. Nonuse Periods. The power cord of the product
should be unplugged from the outlet when left
unused for long periods of time.
15. Outdoor Antenna Grounding. If an outside
antenna or cable system is connected to the prod-
uct, be sure the antenna or cable system is ground-
ed so as to provide some protection against voltage
surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of
the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides
information with regard 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 grounding electrode. See
Figure 1.
16. Lightning. For added protection for this prod-
uct during a lightning 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
17. Power Lines. An outside antenna system should
not be located 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
care should be taken to keep from touching such
power lines or circuits, as contact with them might
be fatal.
18. Overloading. Do not overload wall outlets,
extension cords, or integral convenience recepta-
cles, as this can result in a risk of fire or electric
19. Object and Liquid Entry. Never push objects of
any kind into 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.
20. Servicing. Do not attempt to service this prod-
uct yourself, as opening or removing covers may
expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards.
Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
21. Damage Requiring Service. Unplug this prod-
uct from the wall outlet and refer servicing to quali-
fied service personnel under the following condi-
a. The power-supply cord or the plug has been
damaged; or
b. Objects have fallen onto, or liquid has been
spilled into, the product; or
c. The product has been exposed to rain or water;
d. The product does not operate normally when fol-
lowing the operating instructions. Adjust only those
controls that are covered by the operating instruc-
tions, as an improper adjustment of other controls
may result in damage and will often require exten-
sive work by a qualified technician to restore the
product to its normal operation; or
e. The product has been dropped or damaged in any
way; or
f. The product exhibits a distinct change in perfor-
mance; this indicates a need for service.
22. Replacement Parts. When replacement parts
are required, be sure the service technician has used
replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or
that have the same characteristics as the original
part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire,
electric shock or other hazards.
23. Safety Check. Upon completion of any service
or repairs to this product, ask the service technician
to perform safety checks to determine that the
product is in proper operating condition.
24. Wall or Ceiling Mounting. The product should
be mounted to a wall or ceiling only as recommend-
ed by the manufacturer.
25. Heat. The product should be situated away from
heat sources such as radiators, heat registers,
stoves or other products (including amplifiers) that
produce heat.
