SPECIAL NOTES FOR UK CUSTOMERS ONLY
NOTE FOR USERS IN THE U.K.
Ensure that neither the brown nor the blue wire is connected to the earth terminal in your three pin plug.
The mains lead of this product is fitted with a non-rewireable (moulded) plug incorporating a 3A fuse. Should the
fuse need to be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved BS
1362 fuse marked
or
and of the same rating as
above, which is also indicated on the pin face of the plug
must be used.
Before replacing the plug cover, make sure that:
● If the new fitted plug contains a fuse, its value is the
same as that removed from the cut-off plug.
● The cord grip is clamped over the sheath of the mains
lead and not simply over the lead wires.
Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse. Never
use the plug without the fuse cover fitted.
IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT, CONSULT A QUALIFIED
ELECTRICIAN.
In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home
not being compatible with the plug supplied, cut-off the
mains plug and fit an appropriate type.
DANGER:
The fuse from the cut-off plug should be removed and
the cut-off plug destroyed immediately and disposed of
in a safe manner.

PRECAUTIONS
■ General
■ Care of compact discs
● Please ensure that the equipment is positioned in a well
ventilated area and ensure that there is at least 5 cm of
free space along the sides, top and back of the equipment.
● Do not use oil, solvents, petrol, paint thinners or insecticides on the unit.
● Do not expose the unit to moisture, to temperatures
higher than 60˚C (140˚F) or to extreme low temperatures.
● Keep the unit away from direct sunlight, strong magnetic
fields, excessive dust, humidity and electronic/electrical
equipment (home computers, facsimiles, etc.) which
generates electrical noise.
● Hold the AC power plug by the head when removing it
from the AC socket, since pulling the lead can damage
internal wires.
● Remove the AC power plug from the wall socket before
cleaning the heads, pinch rollers, etc.
This unit contains dangerous voltages.
Do not remove the outer cover, as this may result in
electric shock. Refer internal service to your local SHARP
service facility.
● Use the unit on a firm, level surface free from vibration,
and do not place anything on the top of the unit.
● If the unit does not work properly whilst in use, set the
ON/STAND-BY switch to STAND-BY, then disconnect
the AC power lead from the AC socket. Plug the AC
power lead back in, and then set the ON/STAND-BY
switch to ON.
● If a lightning storm is taking place near you, it is suggested that you disconnect the AC power lead from the
AC socket for safety.
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. Signals are read from the non-label side.
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.
Warning:
The voltage used must be the same as that specified on
this unit. Using this product with a higher voltage 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.

Cautions:
● Do not carry the unit whilst CD’s are in the trays or a MiniDisc
is loaded. The discs may come loose inside the unit and be
damaged or cause damage to the unit. This may also cause
malfunctions.
● Do not place two CDs in one disc position.
● Do not push the disc tray whilst it is moving.
● Do not attempt to push the disc tray by hand. This may cause
malfunctions.
● If power fails whilst the tray is open, wait until the power
supply returns or gently push the tray manually to close it.
● If the disc tray is stopped forcibly, "TRAY ERROR" will appear
on the display and the unit will not function.
If this occurs, turn off the ON/STAND-BY switch and turn it
on again.
● If TV or radio interference occurs during CD operation, move
the unit away from the TV or radio.
● If a disc is damaged, dirty, or loaded upside down, the disc
will be skipped and the next disc will be automatically played.
● If the CDs are dirty or have label adhesive on their surface,
make sure to clean them before loading. If a rental CD is
loaded or a label has been peeled off from the CD, the surface may be dirty or sticky. Wipe any dirt from the surface.
If a dirty CD is loaded and played back, it may become damaged, or it could become stuck in the unit.
● If the CD 0 6 button, CD PLAY 1 - 3 button or the 7 button
is pressed when a disc tray is open, the disc tray will be
automatically closed. Be careful not to catch your finger.
● If the machine is shaken by impact or vibration, playback may
be disrupted. If the playback volume of a CD is raised excessively, playback may be disrupted. If this happens, lower
the playback volume.

RECORDING
■ Differences from tape recordings
You cannot record music on the
reverse side of a MiniDisc.
You can check the total or remaining
recordable time (possible recording)
before recording.
MiniDiscs are single sided and should only be
inserted with the correct side up. (Page 39)
This lets you plan a recording session so that
the last song will not come to an abrupt end
before it has finished. (Page 17)
You don’t need to search for the starting point at which to record.
The date and time of a recording are
automatically saved with the recording.
The unit automatically finds the point at which
recording can start. Recording will start from
that point.
If you have set the date and time, they will
be automatically recorded when a recording
is made. (Page 6)
■ Disc writing (TOC)
The TOC (Table of Contents) is information on track numbers
and recording areas to allow the unit to recognize musical selections or sounds.
The entire MD is controlled depending on this TOC, which enables the unit to find the beginning of a track quickly or to automatically record in a vacant area.
Area for TOC (recording track
numbers, track names, etc.)
Area for recording
the sound
When you start recording or editing, "TOC" will appear in the
display window.
This indicates that information in the TOC is now being changed
according to recording or editing being performed. (The changed
TOC is not yet recorded on the MiniDisc at this time.)
The TOC is recorded when

turn the power off.
Do NOT unplug the power lead whilst the TOC is being recorded
("TOC" is flashing) and do NOT impart shock to the unit. Otherwise, TOC will not be correctly recorded, and consequently
proper playback may not be possible.

New track numbers will be created automatically according to

● When you record from a CD to a MiniDisc, the track numbers

If this happens, correct the track numbers using the DIVIDE
(page 24) and COMBINE (page 25) functions after recording.

● If there is no more recording time left on the disc
(Page 17)
● When the "TOC FULL" message appears (Page 39)
● If a disc’s TOC has been damaged
● If you are trying to copy a digital signal that has
been encoded with the SCMS signal (Serial Copy
Management System)
Notes:
● When recording important selections, be sure to
make a preliminary test to ensure that the desired
material is being properly recorded.
● The VOLUME, X-BASS, TREBLE and 3D SURROUND controls may be adjusted with no effect on
the recorded signal. (Variable Sound Monitor)

EDITING
We will explain the 5 editing functions with which you can create your own original discs from recorded MiniDiscs. Playback-only MiniDiscs cannot be edited.
DIVIDE
MOVE
A track can be divided into two tracks. If two selections
were recorded as a single track because there was not
enough silent space between the pieces, you can use
the DIVIDE function to separate the selections.
This feature is also convenient for identifying specific
points with one selection so that you can locate those
points easily whenever you like.

Two adjacent tracks (for example, the third and fourth
tracks) can be combined.
If there is a prolonged silent section in the middle of a
selection that is recorded, a single piece of music may
be recorded as two tracks. If this happens, these two
tracks can be combined into a single track.
This function allows the track numbers to be automatically
rearranged in the order specified for programmed playback. The track numbers will be adjusted as needed,
automatically.
(The tracks that are not included in the programmed selections will be put at the end of the new track numbers.)

WHAT IS A MINIDISC?
The disc is stored in a cartridge. You can handle it easily without worrying about dust, fingerprints, etc.
However, dust entering the opening of the cartridge, dirt on the cartridge, warping, etc. may cause malfunctions. Please
note the following.
■ Handling the MiniDisc
■ To prevent recorded discs from being
erased accidentally
(accidental erasure prevention)
Do not touch the disc directly!
Do not open the shutter or touch the disc directly.
If the shutter is opened forcibly, it may break.
Slide the accidental erase prevention tab, located on the
side of the disc, in the direction indicated by the arrow.
● The disc will then be protected against accidental
erasure.
● To add a recording to such a disc, slide the accidental
erase prevention tab back to its original position.
Disc
Shutter
Cartridge
Tab
Protected against
accidental erasure
Where not to store discs:
Do not store discs in places with high temperatures or humidity. Specifically, do not leave discs in places exposed to
direct sunlight or in cars with doors and windows closed.
Do not leave discs in places where sand can get into the
cartridge easily (e.g., beaches).
■ What is a MiniDisc?
● A MiniDisc is a 64 mm (2-1/2") diameter disc which is
stored in a cartridge. MiniDiscs are easy to handle, compared to compact discs, because they are protected
against dust and scratches.
● Recording and playback use a digital system with a
sound quality that is similar to that found on compact
discs.
MiniDiscs cannot twist or stretch like tapes. The quality
of sound will not deteriorate. MiniDiscs are extremely durable.
● Never disassemble MiniDiscs.
Regular cleaning:
If the outside surface of the cartridge becomes dusty or dirty,
clean it with a dry cloth.
■ Adaptive TRansform Acoustic Coding
[ATRAC]
The ATRAC (Adaptive TRansform Acoustic Coding) is a new
technology that is designed to eliminate the information in
sounds which you can not hear and to compress the remaining sound data so that the recording uses about 1/5 of
the original sound information.
Sound data is analysed and filtered to take advantage of
psycho acoustic masking. The acoustic quality of the sound
is not impaired.

MD-ZV30H TINSZ0217AWZZ

■ How to apply labels
■ Types of discs
There are two types of discs: playback-only and recordable
type.
● Playback-only MiniDisc:
This type of MiniDisc is used for commercially available
pre-recorded music. This is the same kind of optical disc
as CDs. Playback is performed using an optical pickup.
(Recording and editing are not possible.)
A Shutter will be used on
only one side (back).
● Recordable MiniDisc:
This is a "raw disc" on which recording can be performed.
A magneto optical disc is used.
Recordings are made using a laser and magnetic field.
Repeated recording is possible.
When sticking a label on an MD cartridge, be sure to observe the following. If a label is not affixed properly, an MD
may become jammed in the unit such that it can not be
removed.
● Stick a label correctly to the specified area.
(Do not stick labels to areas other than the specified
one.)
● Do not stick one label upon another.
● If a label is peeling off or starts to come loose, replace
it with a new one.
■ High-speed access
A unique feature of the MiniDisc is the ability to locate the
beginning of a desired track at high speed.
This is because the track number and track name data is
stored in a TOC (Table of Contents).
Shutters will be used on
both sides.
Disc
■ Shock Resistant Memory
During playback, approximately 10 seconds of information
is stored in the semiconductor memory. Therefore, even
when the pickup cannot read information for a second or
two due to an external shock, the sound continues without
interruption because the information stored in memory is output.
TOC
Sound data
MINIDISC SYSTEM LIMITATIONS
Even if the maximum recording time of a MiniDisc has
not been reached, "TOC FULL" may be displayed.
In the MD system, the delimiter of the recording area on an
MD is programmed in a TOC. If partial erasing, recording and
editing are repeated several times, TOC information will fill up,
even though the number of tracks has not reached the limit
(255 tracks), and further recording will be impossible. (If you
use the all erase function, this MD can be used from the beginning.)
Even if the maximum recording time of a MiniDisc has
not been reached, "DISC FULL" may be displayed.
If there is any flaw on the MiniDisc, that part is automatically
excluded from the space available for recording. Therefore, the
recording time becomes shorter.
Even if several short tracks are erased, the remaining
recording time may not show an increase.
When the remaining recording time of a disc is displayed, short
tracks less than 12 seconds long may not be included in the
total.
Two tracks may not be combined in editing.
For MiniDiscs on which repeated recording and editing operations
were performed, the COMBINE function may not work.
A track recorded from a CD (digital recording) and a track recorded from a radio or other equipment (analogue recording)
cannot be combined.
The total of the recorded time and time remaining on
a disc may not add up to the maximum possible recording time.
A cluster (about 2 seconds) is normally the minimum unit of recording. So, even if a track is less than 2 seconds long, it will
use about 2 seconds of space on the disc. Therefore, the time
actually available for recording may be less than the remaining
time displayed.
If there are scratches on discs, those sections will be automatically avoided (no recording will be placed in those sections).
Therefore, the recording time will be reduced.
If recorded tracks are fast reversed or fast forwarded,
the sound may skip.
An MD which was recorded or edited repeatedly may skip during fast reverse or fast forward.
