When servicing this product, under no circumstances should the original
design be modified or altered without permission from Zenith Electronics
Corporation. All components should be replaced only with types identical to
those in the original circuit and their physical location, wiring and lead dress
must conform to original layout upon completion of repairs.
Special components are also used to prevent x-radiation, shock and fire hazard.
