Important safety instructions

Before you begin setting up your Apple IIGS, you should read these important safety instructions.

Red Warning TriangleWarning

This equipment is intended to be electrically grounded

Your Apple IIGS is equipped with a three-wire grounding plug—a plug that has a third (grounding) pin. This plug will fit only a grounded AC outlet. This is a safety feature.

If you are unable to insert the plug into an outlet, contact a licensed electrician to replace the outlet with a properly grounded outlet.

Do not defeat the purpose of the grounding plug!

the power cord or plug becomes frayed or otherwise damaged

you spill anything into the computer's case
