Polarization - If the unit is equipped with a polarized AC power plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other), that plug will fit into the AC 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. 3. Power Cord Protection - AC power supply cords should be muted so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them. Never take hold of the plug or cord if your hand is wet, and always grasp the plug body when connecting or disconnecting it. 4. Nonuse Periods - When the unit is not used, tum the power off. When left unused for a long period of time, the unit should be unplugged from the household AC outlet.

1. Outdoor Antenna Grounding -- If an outside antenna is connected to the receiver, 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, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1990, 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 antennadischarge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode. See figure below.
1. Damage Requiring Service - The unit should be serviced by qualified service personnel when: (a) The AC power supply cord or the plug has been damaged; or (b) Objects have fallen or liquid has been spilled into the unit; or (c) The unit has been exposed to rain; or (d) The unit does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a marked change in performance; or

If you will not use the remote control for a long period of time, remove the batteries and store them in a cool, dark place. Do not use rechargeable type batteries. Do not attempt to recharge alkaline or carbon batteries. Always remove old, weak or worn-out batteries promptly and dispose of them properly. Never subject batteries to excessive heat or flame; do not attempt to disassemble them; and be sure theY are not short-circuited. If the leaking electrolyte comes into c_)nt_'__ttfi "sl_in0r clothes, flush with water immediately.
Insert the batteries in the correct polarities ((_, O).
When you need to replace these batteries Use two R6/LR6, AA, UM-3 batteries.

This receiver can playback 6 channel discrete sound. It has terminals for connecting to component with 6 channel discrete output, such as a DVD player. 6 channel discrete output makes playback sound more real by adding depth, movement, position and other characteristics to the field of sound. It will make you feel as if you were at the movie theater when in your own home. To enjoy 6 channel discrete output sound You have to connect a DVD player or other component that has 6 channel discrete output capabilities.

Probable cause(s)

Suggested remedy

While listening

to FM broadcasts

A slight noise may be heard because the method used for modulation of FM stereo broadcasts is different than that used for monaural broadcasts. Try reducing the treble sound by using the treble control. (0) Try changing the location, height and/or direction of the antenna. (O O) If an indoor antenna is being used, change to an outdoor antenna. (0) Try using an antenna with more elements. Transmitting station is too far away.
An unusual hissing noise is heard when listening to the broadcast in stereo, but not heard when listening monaurally. Noise is excessive in both stereo and monaural broadcasts. The FM stereo indicator or the quartz lock indicator flickers, without completely illuminating. Excessive distortion in the sound of stereo broadcasts.
Poor location and/or direction of the antenna.
Poor location and/or direction of the antenna. Transmitting station is too far away.

to AM broadcasts

Unit is being used at the same time as the television set. Interference from adjacent broadcast signal. Turn off the television set, or use this unit farther away from it. Try reducing the treble sound by using the treble control. (O) Place the antenna connection wires and the power cord farther apart. Install a special outdoor antenna. (0)

sound is

A low-pitched "hum" sound is heard when the station is tuned.
The AM loop antenna connection wires are too close to the power cord. The power supply frequency from the power cord is modulated and heard from the speakers.
A strange hissing noise is produced continuously or intermittently.
Caused by the "discharge phenomenon" and the "oscillation phenomenon" of electric appliances (such as fluorescent lights, TV, small sedes-type motors, rectification equipment, etc.).
Try placing this unit farther away from such equipment.


The power cord plug is not completely inserted. Confirm that the power cord plug is connected completely. Turn on the speaker indicator(s). Press the muting button. (0) Check that all wires and cables are correctly connected. (lib-O,0-0) Check that the correct source is seleoied. _) Switch off the power, and after determining and correcting the cause, switch on the power once again.

iv ABSTRACT Information is a critical trend to motor skill learning and its nature would be important to learning improvement. Feedback would be comprehended as any kind of looped back information related to the performed movement. One of feedback types provided by an external source to a movement performer is called knowledge of performance (KP), which informs about the aspects related to the movement pattern. One way in which KP can be provided is through the video, which demonstrates to the leaner the movement performed by him or herself. Results of previous studies that investigated the role of KP are inconsistent in indicate which are the variables that plays a major role upon KP effects and how to guides the use of this source of information. A possibility is to provide visual KP in a self-controlled frequency allowing the learner to decide the moment in which he or she wants receive this information, it permits an active participation of the subject in the learning and teaching process. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of self-controlled visual KP in the learning of a volleyball serve. Thirty male volunteers aging from eleven to thirteen years were assigned to one of three experimental groups: 1) self-controlled group, which received KP in a selfcontrolled frequency during the acquisition phase, 2) yoked group, which received KP in the same trials that their counterparts of self-controlled group, and 3) control group, which no received visual KP. The acquisition phase was constituted by two consecutive practice days, in which 80 trials of serves were performed for each participant. An immediate transfer test was applied 10 minutes after the end of acquisition and a delayed transfer test was applied 48 hours after the end of immediate transfer test. During the transfer tests, the participants performed 10 trials of the serve in a diagonal line to the target. The achieved score and the movement pattern were the dependent variables used, and were analyzed both the means of scores and the standard deviation of scores attained. The results did not confirm the effects of visual self-controlled feedback, as well as this source of information did not show itself be efficient to the learning. The discussion was focused on in the following questions: 1) the result feedback (KR) would be enough sufficient to the pattern improvement; 2) some participants would be more challenged to achieve the accuracy goal on the target than to achieve the goal of movement pattern; 3) would be visual KP an important source of information, when analyzed the motivational and informational aspects?; 4) Would be children a worst visual KP perception, when compared to the adults?; 5) children would not be able to use the self-controlled frequency and for them, the self-controlled frequency did not increase the potential of visual KP; 6) children would be overstretched of selfcontrolled situations. Keywords: Motor Learning, Feedback, Self-controlled frequency, Visual knowledge of performance.
