Troubleshooting chart (continued)
■ Condensation
■ Network reset
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 the Network function operates incorrectly, do the reset
operation as below:
During Network function, press and hold CLEAR button
until “Network Clear” appears.
This operation will erase the current Wi-Fi setting.
■ Before transporting the unit
Remove the iPod, iPhone, iPad, USB memory device and
disc from the unit. Then, set the unit to the power stand-by
mode. Carrying the unit with iPod, iPhone, iPad or USB
memory device left connected or discs left inside might
damage the unit.
■ If problem occurs
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.
If such a problem occurs, do the following:
� Set the unit to the stand-by mode and turn the power
on again.
� If the unit is not restored in the previous operation,
unplug and plug in the unit again, and then turn the
power on.
Note:
If neither operation above restores the unit, clear all the
memory by resetting it.
■ 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 centre,
along the radius.
■ Factory reset, clearing all memory
� Press the ON/STAND-BY button to enter the power
stand-by mode.
� While pressing down the OPEN/CLOSE button, press
NO
the ON/STAND-BY button until “Clear All” appears.
YES
Correct
Caution:
This operation will erase all data stored in memory
including clock, timer settings and tuner preset.
Maintenance
■ Cleaning the cabinet
■ Cleaning the CD pickup lens
Periodically wipe the cabinet with a soft cloth and a
diluted soap solution, then with a dry cloth.
Poor performance during CD playback (skipping or
jumping) can be caused by a dirty or contaminated
CD laser pick up lens. If this happens then the use of a
commercially available CD lens cleaning disc may restore
normal operation. Contact your supplier or local CD
software dealer to obtain CD lens cleaning discs. Ensure
all included instructions/documentation are carefully
followed.
Caution:
● Do not use chemicals for cleaning (petrol, paint thinner,
etc.). It may damage the cabinet.
● Do not apply oil to the inside of the unit. It may cause
malfunctions.
