compared to ordinary cassette tapes, have very little
noise. If the volume is adjusted according to your usual
expectations of noise, high volume may damage your
hearing.

people around you.
In particularly crowded places (such as on trains or
buses), reduce the volume.

sampling frequency (32 kHz or 48 kHz), recordings can
still be made. (The sampling frequency of this unit is 44.1
kHz.)
Note for digital recording
You can not copy a MiniDisc that you recorded from digital
inputs to another MiniDisc or DAT. It is prevented by the

Caution:
● Use the specified battery AD-N70BT only. Do not charge
a battery (nickel-cadmium, alkaline, etc.) other than that
specified.
● Do not remove the outer cover of the rechargeable battery. It may cause heat generation, fire,
or explosion.
● Do not dip the battery in water, do not dispose

kind that can be used. Even if the battery is not used,
you should charge it at least once every three months
because of the special quality of this battery.
The rechargeable battery can be charged approximately
300 times.
When the operating time is reduced to about half the
normal amount of time, even after a full charge is performed, replace the battery with a new one (AD-N70BT).
When the battery is charged for the first time or is charged
after not being used for a long period, the operating time
may be shorter than normal. The battery life will recover
with normal use i.e. charging and discharging.
To avoid shortening the service life of the battery only
recharge the battery after it has been completely discharged.
If the rechargeable battery is used in a cold environment,
the operating time will be reduced.
Do not carry the battery in your pocket or a bag together
with metal objects (keys, coins, jewelry, etc.). The battery may short out and generate significant amounts of
heat.
Do not short-circuit the terminals as they will become
very hot and will damage the battery.
Do not drop or subject the battery to shock.
Do not insert objects (metal etc.) into the battery compartment of this product or into the rechargeable battery.

Troubleshooting : continued
References
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. Unplug the AC adaptor from the wall socket.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Leave the unit completely unpowered for approximately
30 seconds.
4. Plug the AC adaptor back into the wall socket and
reoperate the unit.
Moisture condensation
When the unit has condensation inside, the disc signals
cannot be read, and the unit may not function properly.
In the following cases, condensation may form inside the unit.
● Shortly after turning on a heater.
● When the unit is placed in a room
where there is excessive steam
or moisture.
● When the unit is moved from a
cool place to a warm place.
To remove condensation:
Remove the MiniDisc and leave the unit for approximately 1 hour. The condensation should evaporate and
the unit will work properly.
Maintenance
■ Cleaning
Cautions:
When the unit becomes dirty
Clean it with a soft cloth.
When the unit is excessively dirty, use a soft
cloth dampened in water (external surfaces
only).
● Do not use chemicals for cleaning (petrol, paint thinner,
etc.).
It may damage the cabinet finish.
● Do not apply oil to the inside of the unit.
It may cause malfunctions.
Clean the plugs and the connecting socket.
If the plugs or sockets are dirty, noise may be heard.
Cleaning will prevent noise.
