IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS For your protection, please read these safety instructions completely before operating the appliance, and keep this manual for future reference. Carefully observe all warnings, precautions and instructions on the appliance and described in the operating instructions supplied with the appliance by Sony. INSTALLATION Water and Moisture Do not install the appliance near water: for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool. Heat Do not install the appliance near sources of heat such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances that produce heat. Ventilation Slots and openings in the cabinet and in the back or bottom are provided for necessary ventilation. To ensure reliable and safe operation of the appliance, and to protect it from overheating, these slots and openings must never be blocked or covered. Do not place the appliance on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface which may block the slots and openings. Do not install the appliance in a confined space, such as a bookcase or built-in cabinet, unless proper ventilation is provided. Carts and Stands Do not install the appliance on an unstable table, shelf, cart or stand. Use only a cart or stand recommended by Sony. An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn. Wall or Ceiling Mounting If your appliance can be mounted to a wall or ceiling, mount it only as recommended by Sony. USE Power Source Connect the appliance to a power supply only of the type described in the operating instructions or as marked on the appliance. Grounding or Polarization Do not defeat the grounding or polarization feature of the AC power cord. If your AC receptacle will not accept the power cord plug, contact your electrician to install a proper AC receptacle. AC Receptacle Check to make sure that the AC receptacle holds the power cord plug firmly and securely. If the power cord plug is loose, contact your electrician to replace the defective and unsafe AC receptacle. Power-Cord Protection Route the power cord so that it is not likely to be walked on or pinched by having objects placed on it, paying particular attention to the plugs, receptacles, and the point where the cord exits from the appliance. When not in use Unplug the power cord of the appliance from the outlet when left unused for a long period of time. To disconnect the cord, pull it out by grasping the plug. Never pull the plug out by the cord. Foreign Objects Be careful that foreign objects and liquids do not enter the enclosure through openings. Cleaning Clean the appliance only as recommended by Sony. ANTENNAS Outdoor Antenna Grounding If an outdoor antenna or cable system is installed, follow the precautions below. An outdoor antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can come in contact with such power lines or circuits. WHEN INSTALLING AN OUTDOOR ANTENNA SYSTEM, EXTREME CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN TO KEEP FROM CONTACTING SUCH POWER LINES OR CIRCUITS AS CONTACT WITH THEM IS ALMOST INVARIABLY FATAL. Be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code 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-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode. Antenna Grounding According to the National Electrical Code SERVICE Unplug the appliance from the wall outlet and consult qualified service personnel when: -the power cord or the plug has been damaged. -a solid object or liquid has fallen into the cabinet. -the appliance has been exposed to rain or moisture. -the appliance does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change in performance. -the appliance has been dropped, or the enclosure damaged. Do not attempt to service the appliance beyond that described in the operating instructions. For all other servicing refer to qualified service personnel only.
