Important Safety Information
Always be careful when using your TV receiver. To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
and other injuries, keep these safety precautions in mind when installing, using, and
maintaining your machine.
Read all safety and operating instructions before operating your TV.
Keep the safety and operating instructions for future reference.
Heed all warnings on the TV receiver and in the operating instructions.
Follow all operating and use instructions.
Unplug the TV receiver from the wall outlet before cleaning.
Use a damp cloth; do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.
Never add any attachments and/or equipment without approval of the manufacturer.
Such additions can increase the risk of fire, electric shock, or other personal injury.
Do not use the TV receiver where contact with or immersion in water is a possibility,
such as near bath tubs, sinks, washing machines, swimming pools, etc.
Do not place the TV on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or
table where it can fall. A falling TV can cause serious injury to a
child or adult, and serious damage to the appliance. Use only with
a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the
manufacturer or sold with the TV. Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions when mounting the unit, and use a mounting
accessory recommended by the manufacturer. Move the TV and
cart with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces
can make the unit and cart unsteady and likely to overturn.
Provide ventilation for the TV receiver. The unit is designed with
slots in the cabinet for ventilation to protect it from overheating. Do not block these openings
with any object, and do not place the TV receiver on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface.
Do not place it near a radiator or heat register. If you place the TV receiver on a rack or
bookcase, ensure that there is adequate ventilation and that you’ve followed the
manufacturer’s instructions for mounting.
Operate your TV receiver only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label.
If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your appliance dealer
or local power company.
Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this TV is equipped with a
polarized alternating current line plug having one blade wider than the other. This plug will
fit into the power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact your electrician to replace
