NOTES FOR USERS IN THE U.K. AND IRELAND
The mains lead of this product is fitted with a non-rewireable
(moulded) plug incorporating a 3A fuse. Should the fuse need to
be replaced, a BSI or ASTA approved BS 1362 fuse marked or
and of the same rating as above, which is also indicated on
the pin face of the plug must be used.
Important Instruction
Always refit the fuse cover after replacing the fuse. Never use
the plug without the fuse cover fitted.
2
In the unlikely event of the socket outlet in your home not being
compatible with the plug supplied, cut-off the mains plug and fit
an appropriate type.
DANGER:
The fuse from the cut-off plug should be removed and the cut-off
plug destroyed immediately and disposed of in a safe manner.
Under no circumstances should the cut-off plug be inserted elsewhere into a 13A socket outlet as a serious electric shock may
occur.
To fit an appropriate plug to the mains lead, follow the instructions below:
Ensure that neither the brown nor the blue wire is connected to
the earth terminal in your three pin plug.
Before replacing the plug cover, make sure that:
● If the new fitted plug contains a fuse, its value is the same as
that removed from the cut-off plug.
● The lead grip is clamped over the sheath of the mains lead
and not simply over the lead wires.
IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT, CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.

MP3:
MP3 is a form of compression. It is an acronym which stands
for MPEG Audio Layer 3.
MP3 is a type of audio code which is processed by significant
compression from the original audio source with very little loss
in sound quality.
This system supports MPEG 1 Layer 3 and VBR files.
During VBR file playback, time counter in the display may differ
from its actual playback time.
Bitrate which is supported by MP3 is 32 ~ 320 kbps.
WMA:
WMA files are Advanced System Format files that include audio
files which are compressed with Windows Media Audio codec.
WMA is developed by Microsoft as an audio format file for Windows Media Player.
"MP3" and "WMA" indicator will light up after the unit reads
information on an MP3 or WMA disc.
Bitrate which is supported by WMA is 64 ~ 160 kbps.
CD or MP3/WMA disc Playback
This system can play back a standard CD, CD-R/RW in the CD format

If MP3/WMA files are recorded in several folders, a folder number will
be set to each folder automatically.
These folders can be selected by the TUNING/FOLDER button on
the remote control. If there is no supported file formats inside the
selected folder, the folder is skipped and the next folder will be
selected.
Example: How to set folder number if MP3/WMA format files are
recorded as below figure.
1. ROOT folder is set as folder 1.
2. As for folders inside ROOT folder (Folder A and Folder B), the
folder which is recorded earlier on the disc will be set as folder 2.
3. As for folder inside Folder A (Folder C and Folder D), the folder
which is recorded earlier on the disc will be set as folder 3.
4. Because there is no folder in Folder C, Folder D will be set as
folder 4.
5. Folder E that is inside Folder D will be set as folder 5.
6. Folder B inside ROOT folder will be set as folder 6.
* The folder and file order information which is recorded on the disc

and then they will scroll across the display.
If you tune in to an RDS station which is not broadcasting any
radio text, "NO RT" will be displayed when you switch to the radio

placed properly? Move the aerial
away from the AC power lead if
it's located nearby.
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 Set the unit to the stand-by mode and turn the power on again.
2 If the unit is not restored in the previous operation, unplug and
plug in the unit, and then turn the power on.
Note:
If neither operation above restores the unit, clear all the memory by
resetting it.
References
Symptom
The remote control does
not operate.
Condensation
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.

Troubleshooting chart (continued)
Before transporting the unit
Cleaning the cabinet
Remove the CD from the unit. Make sure there is no CD in the disc
tray. Then, set the unit to the power stand-by mode. Carrying the
unit with disc left inside can damage the unit.

Care of compact discs
40
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.
NO
Maintenance
YES
Correct
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 (petrol, paint thinner, etc.). It
may damage the cabinet finish.
Do not apply oil to the inside of the unit. It may cause
malfunctions.
Cleaning the CD pickup lens
Poor performance during CD playback (skipping or jumping) can be
caused by a dirty or contaminated CD laser pick up lens. If this
happens then the use of a commercially available CD lens cleaning
discs may restore normal operation. Contact your supplier or local
CD software dealer to obtain CD lens cleaning discs. Ensure all
included instructions/documentation are carefully followed.
