Advanced Features
RDS is a broadcasting service which a growing number of FM
stations provide. These FM stations send additional signals
along with their regular programme signals. They send their
station names, and information about the type of programme
such as sport, music, etc.
When tuned to an RDS station, “RDS” and the station name will be
displayed.
“TP” (Traffic Programme) will appear on the display when the
received broadcast carries traffic information, and “TA” (Traffic
Announcement) will appear whilst a traffic information is on air.
“PTYI” (Dynamic PTY Indicator) will appear whilst the Dynamic PTY
station is received.

The stations which are already stored in memory will be kept there.
Notes:
If the same station is broadcasting on different frequencies, the
strongest frequency will be stored in memory.
Any station which has the same frequency as the one stored in
memory will not be stored.
If 30 stations have already been stored in memory, the scan will
be aborted. If you want to redo the ASPM operation, erase the
preset memory.
If no station is stored in memory, “END” will appear for about 4
seconds.
If the RDS signals are very weak, station names may not be
stored in memory.
To erase all of the contents of preset memory:
1 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to enter the power stand-by
mode.
2 Press CLEAR/DISPLAY button for more than 2 seconds until

ASPM function if there is lots of noise or if the signal is too weak. In
this case, perform as follows.
1 Press the PRESET ( or ) button to check whether the names
are correct.
2 If you find a wrong name whilst receiving the station, wait until the
correct name is displayed and then press the MEMORY/
DIMMER button.

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 trouble 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:
1 Set the unit to the stand-by mode and turn the power on again.
2 If the unit is not restored in the previous operation, unplug and
plug in the unit, and then turn the power on.
Note:
If neither operation above restores the unit, clear all the memory by
resetting it.
Before transporting the unit
Remove the CD from the unit. Make sure there is no CD in the disc
tray. Then, set the unit to the power stand-by mode. Carrying the
unit with disc left inside can damage the unit.

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.

Cleaning the CD pickup lens
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
discs may restore normal operation. Contact your supplier or local
CD software dealer to obtain CD lens cleaning discs. Ensure all
