Disc Cleaning
DISC
CLEANING
Use a dry soft cloth to wipe the surface. If the disc is dirty, use a soft cloth slightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Never use solvents such as benzene, thinner or conventional
record cleaners as they may scratch the surface of the disc.
A disc may become somewhat scratched (although not enough to make it unusable)
depending on the way it is handled and conditions in the usage environment. Note
these scratches are not an indication of any problem with the player.

PREPARING
DISCS
SPOTS
A new disc may have rough edges on its inside and outside edges. If a disc with rough
edges is used, the proper setting will not be performed and the player will not play the disc.
Therefore, remove the rough edges in advance by using a ballpoint pen or pencil as shown
on the right. To remove the rough edges, press the side of the pen or pencil against the inside and outside edges of the disc.

The AF frequency (which has different PI or NO RDS signal with high field strength) is
masked during checking PI when the unit searches AF. The unit doesn’t search this AF
(DIP) for few minutes.
In the case of the AF of NO RDS signal with high field strength, if the real AF is wrongly
masked as DIP by some interference, the unit hesitates to search real Afs. For this reason,
the unit has the user option (MASK DPI) which doesn’t mask the AF of NO RDS signal with
high field strength.
In MASK DPI mode, the wrong sound or long mute (according to PI SOUND or PI MUTE)
can be heard from the AF station which has NO RDS signal and of which the field strength
is higher than that of the currently tuning AF (station). But, these phenomenons are rare and
the user will hardly Europe.

Test
Procedure
Failure to
power on
Check for +12V DC output from
power source.
Using a volt meter turn the setting of the volt meter to VDC.
Check black wire (ground) with one probe from the volt meter/
red wire (positive) with the other probe on the power supply.
Reading should be in range +11.6V DC to +14.7V DC output
from the power supply.
Check red, yellow and black power
wires are fully inserted into male
12-pin harness on source unit.
Push on the red, yellow and black wires to make
sure they are fully seated into the harness and will
make good connection to the female pins of the stereo.
Check for +12V DC across the red
and yellow fuses .
Using a volt meter set to VDC, insert the black (ground) probe
into the black wire on male harness. Using the red (positive)
probe on the volt meter check the fuse on the yellow wire,
located on the back of the stereo, by touching the terminal
on top of the fuse closest to the stereo. Reading should be in
range of +11.6V DC - +14.7V DC. Repeat these steps to test
the fuse on the red wire on the back of the stereo.
Check 12-pin wiring harness
components (male and female) are
connected properly and ‘clicked’ in.
Check that male and female 12-pin harness have a good
connection and that the tabs on the side of the plastic 12-pin
harness are clicked in to prevent accidental disconnection.

the meter into the grey/black striped wire on the female side
of the 12-pin harness. Place the red probe of the meter into
the solid grey wire. Readings below 2 Ohms or above 8 Ohms
indicate a problem or short in the line. Repeat test through all
speaker connections. Reconnect the stereo to the female 12#!$!%%!"!-$ &&&$+)&$!!#'$#
wires are fully and securely inserted in the 12-pin harness.
Check Audio options and settings.
Press the ‘Audio’ button and use ‘volume up’ (+) or ‘volume
down’ (-) buttons to scroll through the audio options. Make sure
‘Balance’ is set to “L=R” and ‘Fader’ is set to “F=R”. If either
option is not set as required, press volme up (+) or volume
down ( - ) to alter the setting.
Check for correct antenna
installation.
Make sure there is an antenna is correctly installed into the
the input labelled ‘Antenna’. Connect the antenna wires to
a metal structure (vehicle chassis for example) to improve
reception.
Check the ‘Settings’ menu to make
sure that you are in the correct FM
Tuning Area
Hold down the ‘Settings’ button for 3-5 seconds until the
Settings menu appears. Use ‘volume down’ (-) button to scroll
down the menu to the ‘AREA’ menu item and press ‘ENTER’.
Verify the correct FM tuning zone, either USA or Europe. Use
‘volume up’ (+) and ‘volume down’ (-) to switch between USA
or Europe FM Tuning Areas.
Check disc for scratches and
imperfections.
Check the back of the disc for any scratches or rough edges
that may cause the disc to be unreadable. If scratches or
blemishes are present refer to ‘Disc Handling’ section of this
user manual.
Verify the songs are the apprioiate
