Hold the AC power plug by the head when
removing it from the AC outlet, as pulling
the cord can damage internal wires.
The AC power plug is used as a disconnect
device and shall always remain readily
operable.
Do not remove the outer cover, as
this may result in electric shock.
Refer service to your local SHARP
service facility.
Use the unit on a firm, level surface free from
vibration.
This unit should only be used within the range of 41˚F - 95˚F
(5˚C - 35˚C).
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 your system does not work properly, disconnect the AC power
cord from the AC outlet. Plug the AC power cord back in, and then
turn on your system.
In case of an electrical storm, unplug the
unit for safety.
Warning:
The voltage used must be the same as that specified on this unit.
Using this product with a higher voltage other than that which is
specified is dangerous and may result in a fire or other type of
accident causing damage. SHARP will not be held responsible for
any damage resulting from use of this unit with a voltage other than
that which is 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. Excessive sound pressure from earphones
and headphones can cause hearing loss.

To play back MP3/WMA (Windows Media Audio) file
There are many music sites on the internet that you can download
MP3/WMA (Windows Media Audio) music files. Follow the
instructions from the website on how to download the music files.
You can then play back these downloaded music files by burning
them to a CD-R/RW disc.
Your downloaded song/files are for personal use only. Any other
usage of the song without owner’s permission, is against the law.
About folder playback order
If MP3/WMA files are recorded in several folders, a folder number will
be set to each folder automatically.
These folders can be selected by the FOLDER button on the remote
control. If there is no supported file formats inside the selected folder,
the folder is skipped and the next folder will be selected.
Example: How to set folder number if MP3/WMA format files are
recorded as below figure.
1. ROOT folder is set as folder 1.
2. As for folders inside ROOT folder (Folder A and Folder B), the
folder which is recorded earlier on the disc will be set as folder 2
and folder 3.
3. As for folder inside Folder A (Folder C and Folder D), the folder
which is recorded earlier on the disc will be set as folder 4 and
folder 5.
4. Folder E that is inside Folder D will be set as folder 6.
The folder and file order information which is recorded on the disc
depends on the writing software. There maybe possibilities that
this unit will playback the files not according to our expected
playback order.
For CD MP3/WMA, 512 numbers of folders and files inclusives of
the folders which have non playable files can be read.
Folder mode on/off can be operated by the FOLDER button on the
remote control. Files that are played when folder mode is set to the
on position, may differ from those played back when folder mode is
turned off.
Folder Mode Off case:
All the files starting from the selected file will be played back. If file 3
inside Folder C is selected, all the files starting from file 3 will be
played back until file 10 of Folder E.
Folder Mode On case:
All the files inside the selected folder will be played back.
In case Folder D is selected, file 6, 7 and 8 will be played back. File

Troubleshooting chart (continued)
Condensation
Sudden temperature changes, storage or operation in an extremely
humid environment may cause condensation inside the cabinet (CD
pickup, etc.) or on the transmitter on the remote control.
Condensation can cause the unit to malfunction. If this happens,
leave the power on with no disc in the unit until normal playback is
possible (about 1 hour). Wipe off any condensation on the transmitter
with a soft cloth before operating the unit.
If trouble occurs
References
When this product is subjected to strong external interference
(mechanical shock, excessive static electricity, abnormal supply
voltage due to lightning, etc.) or if it is operated incorrectly, it may
malfunction.
Care of compact discs
Compact 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 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 CDs by the edges. Fingerprints, dirt, or water on
the CDs can cause noise or mistracking. If a 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
If such a problem occurs, do the following:
1 Set the unit to the stand-by mode and turn the power on again.
2 If the unit is not restored in the previous operation, unplug and
plug in the unit, and then turn the power on.
YES
Correct
Note:
If neither operation above restores the unit, clear all the memory by
resetting it.
Factory reset, clearing all memory

Press the ON/STAND-BY button to enter the power stand-by
mode.
While pressing down the
button, press the CD button until
“CLEAR ALL” appears.
Maintenance
Cleaning the CD pickup lens
In order to ensure proper operation of the CD player, preventative
maintenance (cleaning of the laser pickup lens) should be
performed periodically. Lens cleaners are commercially available.
Contact your local CD software dealer for options.
Cleaning the cabinet
Caution:
This operation will erase all data stored in memory including clock,
timer settings, tuner preset, and CD program.
Before transporting the unit
34
Remove CD from the unit. Make sure there is no CD in the disc tray.
Then, set the unit to the power stand-by mode. Carrying the unit
with disc left inside can damage the unit.
Periodically wipe the cabinet with a soft cloth and a diluted soap
solution, then with a dry cloth.
Caution:
Do not use chemicals for cleaning (gasoline, paint thinner, etc.). It
may damage the cabinet finish.
Do not apply oil to the inside of the unit. It may cause
malfunctions.
