SAFETY PRECAUTION
For safety reasons do not allow children to unfasten seat-belts to change
video media or make any adjustments to the system. Enjoy your entertainment system but always remember the safety of all passengers is
the number one priority.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
It is unlawful in most states for a person to drive a motor vehicle which is
equipped with a television viewer or screen that is located in the motor
vehicle at any point forward of the back of the driver’s seat, or that is
visible, directly or indirectly, to the driver while operating the vehicle. In
the interest of safety, this system should never be installed where it will
be visible, directly or indirectly, by the operator of the motor vehicle.
1. OBJECTS AND LIQUID
Do not insert objects of any kind into the system through its openings; do not spill or spray liquid on or into the system (this may
result in a fire or electric shock). Do not place heavy objects on the
unit. To ensure proper ventilation and proper operation, never cover
or block the slots and openings.
2. DISASSEMBLY
Do not attempt to disassemble the unit. There is a risk of electric
shock and/or exposure to Laser Radiation. Contact qualified service personnel if your system is in need of repair.
3. CLEANING UNIT
When cleaning, make sure the system is unplugged from the power
source. Do not use any solvents or cleaning materials. Clean the
DVD player using a lightly dampened lint free cloth to wipe the unit.

4. DISCS or (DISC Media)
Do not use irregularly shaped discs such as heart or star-shaped
discs as they may cause the unit to malfunction. Do not stick paper, tape or glue on the disc. Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat sources. Do not touch the surface of the disc. Handle
the disc by its edges. Clean the disc by wiping the disc from the
center out with a soft lint free cleaning cloth. Remove the disc from
the unit and store it in its case after playing. Some playback operations of discs may be intentionally fixed by software producers. Unit

designed therefore some playback features may not be available.
Refer to the instructions supplied with the discs.
5. Powering the DVD Player
This system MUST be powered from switched (Accessory) power
as indicated on the marking label. Power should be applied to the
unit when the ignition key is in the Run and/or Accessory positions.
Use only the supplied power cable provided with this set to avoid
electric hazards.
6. Operation

DVD player to malfunction. If the AVD400A does not operate properly under these conditions leave the AVD400A turned on for at least
30 minutes for the moisture to evaporate.
