Precautions
■
● The AC power plug is used as a disconnect device and
shall always remain readily operable.
● Do not remove the outer cover, as this may result in
electric shock. Refer internal service to your local
SHARP service facility.
● The ventilation should not be impeded by covering the
ventilation openings with items, such as newspapers,
tablecloths, curtains, etc.
● No naked flame sources, such as lighted candles,
should be placed on the apparatus.
● Attention should be drawn to the environmental
aspects of battery disposal.
● This unit should only be used within the range of 5˚C 35˚C (41˚F - 95˚F).
General
● Please ensure that the equipment is positioned in a
well ventilated area and ensure that there is at least 10
cm (4") of free space along the sides, top and back of
the equipment.
10 cm (4") 10 cm (4")

10 cm
(4")
● Use the unit on a firm, level surface free from vibration.
● Place the speakers at least 30 cm (12") away from any
CRT TV to avoid colour 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.
● Do not place anything on top of the unit.
● Do not expose the unit to moisture, to temperatures
higher than
60˚C (140˚F) or to extremely low
temperatures.
● If your system does not work properly, disconnect the
AC power lead from the wall socket. Plug the AC power
lead back in, and then turn on your system.
● In case of an electrical storm, unplug the unit for safety.
● Hold the AC power plug by the head when removing it
from the wall socket, as pulling the lead can damage
internal wires.
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.
■
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. Do not
turn the volume on to full at switch on. Listen to music at
moderate levels. Excessive sound pressure from
earphones and headphones can cause hearing loss.

Maintenance
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.
04/1/28
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 centre, along the
radius.
Sudden temperature changes, storage or operation in an
extremely humid environment may cause condensation
inside the cabinet (CD pickup, etc.) or on the transmitter on
the remote control. Condensation can cause the unit to
malfunction. If this happens, leave the power on with no
disc in the unit until normal playback is possible (about 1
hour). Wipe off any condensation on the transmitter with a
soft cloth before operating the unit.
■
Before transporting the unit
Remove the iPod, USB memory device and disc from the
unit. Then, set the unit to the power stand-by mode.
Carrying the unit with iPod or USB memory device left
docked or discs left inside might damage the unit.
