Properly Ground the Game. Players may receive an electrical shock if this game is not properly grounded! To avoid electrical shock, do not plug in the game until it has been inspected and properly grounded. This game should only be plugged into a grounded 3-wire outlet. If you have only a 2-wire outlet, we recommend you hire a licensed electrician to install a grounded outlet.
Players may receive an electrical shock if the control panel, video display, EMI cage, fluorescent light assembly, and utility panel are not properly grounded! After servicing, check that the green ground wire or grounding clip for each assembly is firmly attached. Only then should you lock up the game.
AC Power Connection. Before connecting the game to the AC power source, verify that the proper voltage-selection plug is installed on the game's power supply.
Disconnect Power During Repairs. To avoid electrical shock, disconnect the game from the AC power source before removing or repairing any part of the game.
Discharge High Voltage from the Video Display. When removing or repairing the video display, extra precautions must be taken to avoid electical shock. High voltages may exist within the display circuitry and cathode-ray tube (CRT) even after power has been disconnected. Do not touch internal parts of the display with your hands or with metal objects held in your hands! Always discharge the high voltage from the CRT before servicing this area of the game. To discharge the CRT: Attach one end of a large, well-insulated, 18-gauge jumper wire to ground. Momentarily touch the free end of the grounded jumper to the anode by sliding it under the anode cap. Wait two minutes and discharge the anode again.
Use Only ATARI Parts. To maintain the safety integrity of your ATARI game, use only ATARI authorized parts when repairing the game. Use of non-ATARI parts or modifications of the game circuitry may adversely affect the safety of your game, void the warranty, and injure you or your players.
Handle Fluorescent 1\ibe and CRT With Care. If you drop a fluorescent tube or CRT and it breaks, it will implode! Shattered glass can fly six feet or more from the implosion.
Use the Proper Fuses. To avoid electrical shock, only use replacement fuses that are specified in the parts list for this game. Replacement fuses must match those replaced in fuse type, voltage rating, and current rating. In addition, the fuse cover must be in place during game operation.
