9. IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY........................39
1. When the inside of the car is very cold and
the player is used soon after switching on the
heater, moisture may form on the disc (CD/
MD) or the optical parts of the player and
proper playback may not be possible. If moisture forms on the disc (CD/MD), wipe it off
with a soft cloth. If moisture forms on the optical parts of the player, do not use the player
for about one hour. The condensation will disappear naturally allowing normal operation.
4. TV broadcast reception
When receiving the TV broadcasts, the
strength of the signals changes since the car
is moving, so in some cases it may not be
possible to receive clear pictures.
• TV signals are strongly linear, so reception
is affected by buildings, mountains and other
obstacles.
• Such external factors such as electric train
lines, a high voltage lines, and signal devices
may disturb the picture or cause noise.
2. Driving on extremely bumpy roads which
cause severe vibration may cause the sound
to skip.
∗ If the reception is poor, switch to a station with
good reception.
3. This unit uses a precision mechanism. Even
in the event that trouble arises, never open
the case, disassemble the unit, or lubricate
the rotating parts.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses,
and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning
the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to consult the dealer or an experienced radio/
TV technician for help.

cloth only.
7. CAUTIONS ON HANDLING
LCD panel/Generalities
For a longer service life, be sure to read the following cautions.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Be sure to store the LCD panel inside the
main unit when parking the car outdoors for
long period of time. The LCD panel will operate properly in a temperature range of 0 to
60°C.
Don’t allow any liquids on the set from drinks,
umbrellas etc. Doing so may damage the internal circuitry.
Do not disassemble or modify the set in any
way. Doing so may result in damage.
Do not draw the LCD panel out and use it as
a tray. Also, subjecting the LCD panel to
shocks may result in breakage, deformation
or other damage.
Do not let cigarettes burn the display. Doing
so may damage or deform the cabinet.
If a problem should occur, have the set inspected at your store of purchase.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not insert objects or poke in the space between the LCD panel and the main unit when
the panel is tilted.
Do not place anything on the display when
the panel is tilted.
The remote controller may not work if the remote control sensor is exposed to direct sunlight.
In extremely cold weather, the display movement may slow down and the display may
darken, but this is not a malfunction. The display will work normally when the temperature
increases.
Small black and shiny spots inside the LCD
panel are normal for LCD products.
The LCD panel may stop temporarily when it
opens or closes, when the engine stops or
when it is cold.
Cleaning
• Cleaning the cabinet
Use a soft, dry cloth and gently wipe off the dirt.
For tough dirt, apply some neutral detergent
diluted in water to a soft cloth, wipe off the dirt
gently, then wipe again with a dry cloth.
• Cleaning the LCD panel
The LCD panel tends to collect dust, so wipe it
off occasionally with a soft cloth. The surface is
easily scratched, so do not rub it with hard objects.
Do not use benzene, thinner, car cleaner, etc.,
as these substances may damage the cabinet
or cause the paint to peel. Also, leaving rubber
or plastic products in contact with the cabinet
for long periods of time may cause stains.
