When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should
be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as
contact with them might be fatal.
23) Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna or cable system
is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or cable system is
grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges
and built-up static charges. Article810 of the National Electrical Code,

This unit should only be used within the range of 41˚F - 95˚F
(5˚C - 35˚C).
Place the speakers at least 12" (30 cm) away from any CRT TV
to avoid color variations across the TV screen. If the variations
persist, move the speakers further away from the TV. LCD TV is
not prone to such variation.
Keep the unit away from direct sunlight,
strong magnetic fields, excessive dust,
humidity and electronic/electrical
equipment (home computers, facsimiles,
etc.) which generate electrical noise.
Warning:
The voltage used must be the same as that specified on this unit.
Using this product with a higher voltage other 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.

Do not place anything on top of the unit.
Do not expose the unit to moisture, to temperatures higher than
140˚F (60˚C) or to extremely low temperatures.
If your system does not work properly, disconnect the AC power
cord from the AC outlet. Plug the AC power cord back in, and then
turn on your system.
The sound level at a given volume setting depends on speaker
efficiency, location, and various other factors. It is advisable to avoid
exposure to high volume levels, which occurs while turning the unit
on with the volume control setting up high, or while continually
listening at high volumes. Excessive sound pressure from earphones
and headphones can cause hearing loss.

& STOP)
PLAYBACK (PLAY
Remove the iPod and the disc from the unit. Then, set the unit to the
power stand-by mode. Carrying the unit with iPod left docked might
damage both the unit and the iPod.
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 center, along the radius.

Recording/Playback head
After long use, the deck's heads and capstans may become
magnetized, causing poor sound. Demagnetize these parts once
every 30 hours of playing/recording time by using a commercial
tape head demagnetizer. Read the demagnetizer's instructions
carefully before use.
Cleaning the CD pickup lens
In order to ensure proper operation of the CD player, preventative
maintenance (cleaning of the laser pickup lens) should be performed
periodically. Lens cleaners are commercially available. Contact your
local CD software dealer for options.
Cleaning the cabinet
Periodically wipe the cabinet with a soft cloth and a diluted soap
solution, then with a dry cloth.
Caution:
Do not use chemicals for cleaning (gasoline, paint thinner, etc.). It
may damage the cabinet finish.
Do not apply oil to the inside of the unit. It may cause
malfunctions.
