ENERGY STAR®
WHY PURCHASE ENERGY STAR® LABELED PRODUCTS?
Many Electrical/Electronic Products use energy both when
they are on and when they are off. Americans spend more
than $3 billion a year on energy consumed by home electronic
products when they are not in use. The new ENERGY STAR®
labeled models will reduce that energy “leakage” by up to 75
percent. Ultimately, this will mean more than $1 billion a year
in energy savings for consumers.
The energy savings will help reduce the burning of fossil fuels
and the related carbon dioxide pollution that contributes to global warming. If every American family replaced their electronic
equipment with E NERGY STAR® labeled models, it would
reduce air pollution equivalent to eliminating more than two
million cars.

" General
Caution:
! Please ensure that the subwoofer/amplifier unit is positioned in a well-ventilated
area and that there is at least 4" (10 cm) of free space along the sides and back.
There must also be a minimum of 6" (15 cm) of free space on the top of the
subwoofer/amplifier unit.
! This subwooer/amplifier unit is fitted with a cooling
fan at the rear for improved cooling. Do not cover the
opening in this section with any obstacles.
6" (15 cm)
4" (10 cm)
! Use the system on a firm, level surface free from vibration.
! Keep the system away from direct sunlight, strong magnetic fields, excessive dust,
humidity and electronic/electrical equipment (home computers, facsimiles, etc.)
which generates electrical noise.
! Do not place anything on top of the components.
! Do not expose the system 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.
! In case of an electrical storm, unplug the DVD player and the subwoofer/amplifier
unit for safety.
! Hold the AC power plug by the head when removing it from the AC outlet, as pulling the cord can damage internal wires.
! Do not remove the outer cover, as this may result in electric shock. Refer
internal service to your local SHARP service facility.
! This system should only be used within the range of 41°F - 95°F (5°C - 35°C).
Warning:
The voltage used must be the same as that specified on this system. 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 system with a voltage other
than that which is specified.
! During use the DVD player and the subwoofer/amplifier unit will get warm, do not
touch warm areas of the DVD player and the subwoofer/amplifier unit for prolonged periods to avoid damage to you or the DVD player and the subwoofer/
amplifier unit.
! This system is equipped with special function which protects amplifier circuit from
damages. When it is activated, sound switch is turned off. In this case, set the
DVD player and the AV control unit to the stand-by mode and turn it on again.
" Volume control
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 system on with the volume control setting up high, or
while continually listening at high volumes.
" Care of DVD/CD discs
DVD/CD 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 DVD/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 DVD/CDs by the edges. Fingerprints, dirt, or water on the DVD/
CDs can cause noise or mistracking. If a DVD/CD is dirty or does not play properly, clean it with a soft, dry cloth, wiping straight out from the center, along the
radius.

displays one frame every 1/60th of a second (60 frames per second) to realize lessflicker, high-density images.
