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
or the optical parts of the player and proper
playback may not be possible. If moisture
forms on the disc, 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 and the condensation will disappear naturally to allow normal operation.
2. Driving on extremely bumpy roads which
cause severe vibration may cause the
sound to skip.
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.
CAUTION
USE OF CONTROLS, ADJUSTMENTS, OR PERFORMANCE OF PROCEDURES OTHER THAN
THOSE SPECIFIED HEREIN, MAY RESULT IN HAZARDOUS RADIATION EXPOSURE.
