      • Do not use the system in a closed cabinet or other locations where heat may build up. Doing so may cause the system to overheat and may lead to fire, injury or malfunction.
      • If the system's internal temperature becomes elevated, the power indicator will flash alternately in red and green. In this case, turn off the system and leave it unused for a while. After the system cools down, move it to a location with good ventilation, and then resume use.
      • Do not place the system in an area subject to excessive dust or cigarette smoke. Dust build-up or cigarette smoke residue on the internal components (such as the lens) may cause the system to malfunction.
      • Do not move or change the position of the system while the power indicator is lit solid green or flashing green. The vibration that occurs as a result of moving the system may cause data loss or corruption, or damage to the system.
