Notes
• Make sure the rib of the ring is horizontally
parallel after you place back the ring.
Otherwise, the ring is not attached to the front
panel securely.
• Make sure the “R” ring is attached to the right
of the front panel and the “L” ring is attached

Customizing the graphic sheet
You can also create your own graphic
sheet. Prepare the paper material (posters,
newspapers, printing, handmade graphic
arts, etc.).
After you have prepared the paper
material, we recommend you to use the
acrylic plate as a template to draw the
outline of the custom graphic sheet. Then,
trim the graphic sheet according to the
outline.
Note that if service personnel changes
some parts during repair, these parts may
be retained.
When the indicator does not stop
flashing
Immediately turn off the unit and
unplug the AC power cord (mains
lead).
Then perform the following items.
• Remove anything that is blocking
the ventilation hole.
• Disconnect the iPod/iPhone.
• Disconnect audio cord from the
AUDIO IN jack.
After performing the above items and
fixing any problems, plug in the AC
power cord (mains lead) again and
turn on the unit. If the indicator still
