Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so that they won’t be walked
on or pinched by objects placed on or against them. Pay particular attention to cords at
plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit.
Unplug the TVfrom the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a
lightning storm or when left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will pre-
vent damage to the unit due to lightning and power-line surges.
Avoid overhead power lines. An outside antenna system should not be placed 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, be extremely careful to
keep from touching the power lines or circuits. Contact with such lines can be fatal.
Do not overload the wall outlet or extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric
Do not insert anything through the openings in the unit, where they can touch dangerous
voltage points or damage parts. Never spill liquid of any kind on the TV.
Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or
cable system is connected to the TV, be sure the
antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide
some protection against voltage surges and built-up
static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical
Code, ANSI/NFPANo.70-1984, provides information
about 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
electrodes, and requirements for the grounding elec-
