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.
Maintenance
Cleaning the cabinet
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.
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.
● Do not apply oil to the inside of the unit. It may cause malfunctions.
Cleaning the CD pickup lens
Before transporting the unit
Remove the iPod, USB memory device and disc from the unit. Then, set
the unit to the power stand-by mode. Carrying the unit with iPod or USB
memory device left docked or discs left inside can damage the unit.
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.
