CD PREVENTIVE CARE
• This compact disc player is designed for use with
following types of disc only. Never attempt to load any
other type of disc into the unit. The unit will also play
8-cm (3-inch) compact discs.
• Compact discs are not affected by small particles of
dust or fingerprints on their playing surface, but even so
they should be kept clean. Wipe by using a clean, dry
cloth. Do not wipe with a circular motion; wipe straight
outward from the center.
(Playback only)
• Be sure to use only CD-R and CD-RW discs made by
reliable manufacturers.
• Some discs cannot be played depending on the disc
characteristics or recording conditions (copyrightprotected in a particular way, etc.).
• Compact discs are not subjected to wear during play,
but damage to the disc surface when the disc is being
handled can adversely affect the disc’s play.
• Do not use cleaning discs or warped discs. All of these
could damage the unit.
To prevent a malfunction of this unit
• Do not use any non standard shaped CD (heart, etc.)
available on the market, because it may damage the
unit.
• Do not try to clean the disc’s surface by using any type
of disc cleaner, record spray, antistatic spray or liquid,
or any other chemical-based liquid, because such
substances might irreparably damage the disc’s surface.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high temperature
or high humidity for a long period of time, because
these might warp or otherwise damage the disc.
No!
• Do not use a CD with tape, seals, or paste on it, because
damage to the unit may result.
