General
General Information
Use the unit on a firm, level surface free from
vibration.
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.

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.
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 disconnect
device and shall always remain readily
operable.
Do not remove the outer cover, as
this may result in electric shock. Refer internal service to your local
SHARP service facility.
This unit should only be used within the range of 41˚F - 95˚F
(5˚C - 35˚C).
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.

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.
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 3.
4. Because there is no folder in Folder C, Folder D will be set as
folder 4.
5. Folder E that is inside Folder D will be set as folder 5.
6. Folder B inside ROOT folder 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.
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 folder or file will be played back.
If file 3 inside Folder C is selected, all the files starting from file 3 will
be played back.
Folder Mode On case:
All the files inside the selected folder will be played back.
In case Folder D is selected, file 4, 5 and 6 will be played back. File
7 and 8 in Folder E will not be played back.
