cord. Otherwise, it could cause poor reception.
To a wall outlet

• If a wall outlet does not match the AC plug, use the supplied AC plug adaptor (not supplied for Australian and Hong Kong models).

Notes on the power cord

When you go away for an extended period of time, remove the plug from the wall outlet.

When unplugging the System from the wall outlet, always pull the plug, not the power cord.

Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.

Disconnect the power cord before cleaning the System or moving the System.

Do not alter, twist or pull the power cord, or put anything heavy on it, which may cause fire, electric shock, or other accidents.

Avoid moisture, water, dust, and high temperaturesDo not place the System in moist or dusty places.

If water gets inside the System, turn off the power and remove the plug from the wall outlet, then consult your dealer. Using the System in this state may cause a fire or electrical shock.

Do not expose the System to direct sunlight or place it near a heating device.

Notes on installation

Select a place which is level, dry and neither too hot nor too cold—between 5˚C and 35˚C.

Do not install the System in a place subject to vibrations.Do not put heavy objects on the System.To prevent malfunction or damage to the System

Do not insert any metallic objects, such as wires, hairpins, coins, etc. into the System.

Do not block the vents.

There are no user-serviceable parts inside. If anything goes wrong, unplug the power cord and consult your dealer.

Stains should be wiped off with a soft cloth. If the System is heavily stained, wipe it with a cloth soaked in water- diluted neutral detergent and wrung well, then wipe clean with a dry cloth.
