Precautions
! General
" Ensure the unit is positioned in a well-ventilated area with at least the following
amount of free space around the top: 6" (15 cm), sides; 4" (10 cm), and the back:
1-3/8" (3.5 cm).
4" (10 cm)
4" (10 cm)
" Do not remove the outer cover, as this may result
in electric shock. Refer internal service to your local SHARP service facility.
6" (15 cm)
" This unit should only be used within the range of 41°F
- 95°F (5°C - 35°C).
1-3/8" (3.5 cm)
" Use the unit on a firm, level surface free from vibration.
- Precautions -
General Information
Warning:
" Keep the unit away from direct sunlight, strong magnetic fields, excessive dust, humidity and electronic/
electrical equipment (home computers, facsimiles,
etc.) which generate electrical noise.
" Do not place anything on top of the unit.
" Do not expose the unit to moisture, to temperatures
higher than 140°F (60°C) or to extremely low temperatures.
" If the unit does not work properly, unplug and plug it
in again. Then turn on the unit.
" In case of an electrical storm, unplug the unit for safety.
The voltage used must be the same as that specified by this unit. Using this product
with a higher voltage other than that specified is dangerous and may result in a fire or
other types of accident, causing damage. SHARP will not be held responsible for any
damage resulting from the use of this unit with a voltage other than that specified.
! Volume control
The sound level at a given volume setting depends on speaker efficiency, location
and various other factors. It is advisable to avoid exposure to high volume levels,
which occurs while turning the unit on with the volume control setting up high, or
while continually listening at high volumes.
! Care of DVD/SACD/CD discs
DVD/SACD/CD discs are fairly resistant to damage, however mistracking can occur
due to an accumulation of dirt on the disc surface. Follow the guidelines below for
maximum enjoyment from your DVD/SACD/CD collection and player.
" Do not write on either side of the disc, particularly the non-label side from which
signals are read. Do not mark this surface.
" Keep your discs away from direct sunlight, heat, and excessive moisture.
" Always hold the DVD/SACD/CDs by the edges. Fingerprints, dirt, or water on the
DVD/SACD/CDs can cause noise or mistracking. If a DVD/SACD/CD is dirty or
does not play properly, clean it with a soft, dry cloth, wiping straight out from the
center, along the radius.
NO
" Hold the AC power plug by the head when removing
it from the AC outlet, as pulling the cord can damage
internal wires.
