SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK. DONOT REMOVE COVER(OR BACK). NO USER SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE.REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL. The graphic symbols on the back cover of the set mean the following:

The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated "dangerous voltage" within the product's enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.

The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the appliance.

WARNING : TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS APPLIANCE TO RAIN ORMOISTURE.

INSTALLATION
LOCATE the receiver in the room where direct light does not strike the screen. Total darkness or a reflection on the picture screen can cause eyestrain. Soft and indirect lighting is recommended for comfortable viewing. ALLOW enough space between the receiver and the wall to permit proper ventilation. AVOID excessive warm locations to prevent possible damage to the cabinet or component failure.

AUTOMATIC DEGAUSSING
All colour television receivers are sensitive to magnetic influences, usually caused by either moving the receiver from one place to another or using certain electrical appliances near the receiver. This residual magnetism as it is called, sometimes causes distortion which gives rise to "blotchy" areas of colour in the picture. To avoid these effects the receiver incorporates an automatic degaussing circuit which operates for a short while immediately each time the receiver is switched on using the mains switch. This circuit removes any residual magnetism in the metal parts of the picture tube and therefore ensures that each time the receiver is switched "ON" using the Mains switch, the purity of the colours displayed on the screen remain true and lifelike. If the set is moved or faced in a different direction, the mains switch must be switched off at least 10 minutes in order that the automatic degaussing circuit operates properly.

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Warning: To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this TV set to rain or moisture.

LOCATION Place the TV set on a flat, level surface and in a dry area free from dust and moisture. Do not place the unit in direct sunlight, or where it would be affected by smoke, stream, vibration or heat from heat radiating appliances. To prevent excessive internal temperature rise, place the unit so that there is at least 15 cm of space between it and the surrounding walls. FIRE AND SHOCK PRECAUTIONS Adequate ventilation must be provided to prevent heat build up inside unit. Keep the inside of unit free from foreign objects, such as hairpins, nails, paper, etc. Do not build the set into a bookcase or other enclosures in which it would be poorly ventilated. Do not place it on carpet or a bed as low ventilation holes could become obstructed. Do not set liquids, including flower vases and vessels filled with chemicals or water etc., on top of the unit as liquid could get inside the unit. If a hazardous object falls inside the TV set, unplug it immediately and call a qualified technician for removal. Take care when installing or moving this appliance. Ensure that the power plug is correctly connected/reconnected into the mains supply. To avoid damage to the power cord, never allow heavy objects such as the TV set itself to be placed on the power cord. Keep cord away from heat radiating appliances. Do not allow cord to become knotted or tangled. Do not alter or lengthen the cord. When removing the power plug from the socket, always hold onto the plug, never pull by the cord. CUSTOMER NOTICE If a continual DISCOLOURATION or a COLOURED PATCH appears on your picture image, it may be caused by one of the following.. External speakers placed near to the TV. Vacuum cleaners switched ON or OFF near the TV. Moving or rotating the position of the TV while it is turned on. The TV has been left in the STANDBY mode for some period of time, without being turned OFF using the front panel power button. If this happens then 1. Switch OFF the TV by using the FRONT PANEL POWER button. 2. Leave the TV switch OFF for at least 20 minutes. Then switch ON the TV using the FRONT PANEL POWER button.
