IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS 
Our reputation has been built on the quality, performance, and ease of service of 
HITACHI television receivers. 
Safety is also foremost in our minds in the design of these units. To help you operate 
these products properly, this folder illustrates safety tips which will be of benefit to you. 
Please read it carefully and apply the knowledge you obtain from it to the proper 
operation of your HITACHI television receiver. 
Please fill out your warranty registration card at once and mail it to HITACHI. This will 
enable HITACHI to notify you promptly in the improbable event that a safety problem 
should be discovered in your model of product. 
FOR YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY 
 
 
1 This television set is equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug 
having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one 
way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try 
reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace 
your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat  the safety purpose of the polarized plug. 
 
2 When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed, unplug this television set from the 
wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel. 
 
3 Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can result in fire or electric 
shock. 
 
4 Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over the power cord, and do not place the TV 
where the 
power cord is subject to traffic or abuse. This may result in a shock or fire hazard. 
 
 
5 Do not attempt to service this television set yourself as opening or removing covers 
may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified 
service personnel.
