Notes
• When USB cable connection is necessary, use
the USB cable supplied with the USB device.
• When the USB device is connected,
“READING” appears and “USB MEMORY”
lights up on the display.
• It may take about 10 seconds before
“READING” appears depending on the type
of USB device connected.
• Do not connect the system and the USB
device through a USB hub.
• When the USB device is connected, the
system reads all the files on the USB device.
If there are many folders or files on the USB
device, it may take a long time to finish
reading the USB device.
• With some connected USB devices, after an
operation is performed, there may be a delay
before it is performed by this system.
• Compatibility with all encoding/writing
software cannot be guaranteed. If audio files
on the USB device were originally encoded
with incompatible software, those files may
produce noise or interrupted audio, or may not
play at all.
• This system cannot transfer music from a disc
or play audio files on the USB device in the
following cases.
– When the number of audio files in a folder
exceeds 999.
– When the total number of audio files on a
USB device exceeds 5,000.
– When the number of folders on a USB
device exceeds 255 (including the “ROOT”
and “MUSIC” folders, and excluding empty
folders).
These numbers may vary depending on the
file and folder structure. Do not save other
types of files or unnecessary folders on a USB
device that has audio files.

Additional Information
Precautions
Discs that this system CAN play
• Audio CD
• CD-R/CD-RW (audio data/MP3 files)
Discs that this system CANNOT play
Notes on discs
• Before playing, wipe the disc with a
cleaning cloth from the centre outward
to the edge.
• Do not clean discs with solvents, such
as benzine, thinner, or commercially
available cleaners or anti-static spray
intended for vinyl LPs.
• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight
or heat sources such as hot air ducts,
nor leave it in a car parked in direct
sunlight.
• Completely disconnect the power cord
(mains lead) from the wall outlet
(mains) if it is not going to be used for
an extended period of time. When
unplugging the unit, always grip the
plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid get
into the system, unplug the system, and
have it checked by qualified personnel
before operating it again.
• AC power cord must be changed only
at the qualified service shop.
On placement
• Do not place the system in an inclined
position or in locations that are
extremely hot, cold, dusty, dirty, or
humid or lacking adequate ventilation,
or subject to vibration, direct sunlight
or a bright light.
• Be careful when placing the unit or
speakers on surfaces that have been
specially treated (for example, with
wax, oil, polish) as staining or
discoloration of the surface may result.
• If the system is brought directly from a
cold to a warm location or is placed in
a very damp room, moisture may
condense on the lens inside the CD
player, and cause the system to
malfunction. In this situation, remove
the disc, and leave the system turned on
for about an hour until the moisture
evaporates.
Additional Information
• CD-ROM
• CD-R/CD-RW other than those
recorded in music CD format or MP3
format conforming to ISO9660 Level
1/Level 2, Joliet
• CD-R/CD-RW recorded in
multisession that have not ended by
“closing the session”
• CD-R/CD-RW of poor recording
quality, CD-R/CD-RW that have
scratches or are dirty, or CD-R/CDRW recorded with an incompatible
recording device
• CD-R/CD-RW which is finalized
incorrectly
• Discs containing files other than
MPEG 1 Audio Layer-3 (MP3) files
• Discs of non-standard shape (for
example, heart, square, star)
• Discs that have adhesive tape, paper, or
sticker attached to them
• Rental or used discs with attached seals
where the glue extends beyond the seal
• Discs that have labels printed using ink
that feels tacky when touched
On safety
On heat buildup
• Heat buildup on the unit during
operation is normal and is not cause for
alarm.
• Do not touch the cabinet if it has been
used continuously at a high volume
because the cabinet may have become
hot.
• Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.

On the speaker system
This speaker system is not magnetically
shielded, and the picture on nearby TV
sets may become magnetically distorted.
In this situation, turn off the TV, wait 15
to 30 minutes, and turn it back on. If there
is no improvement, move the speakers far
away from the TV.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean this system with a soft cloth slightly
moistened with a mild detergent solution.
Do not use any type of abrasive pad,
scouring powder, or solvent, such as
thinner, benzine, or alcohol.
Troubleshooting
1
Make sure the power cord and
speaker cords are correctly and
firmly connected.
2
Find your problem in the checklist
below, and take the indicated
corrective action.
If the issue persists, contact your
nearest Sony dealer.
If “PROTECT” appears on the
display
Immediately unplug the power cord,
and check the following items after
“PROTECT” disappears.
• Are the + and – speaker cords shortcircuited?
• Is anything blocking the ventilation
holes on the back of the system?
After you have checked these above
items and found to be all right,
reconnect the power cord, and turn on
the system. If the issue persists, contact
your nearest Sony dealer.

General
The remote does not function.
The demonstration appears on the
display after plugging in the power
cord even though the system is not
turned on.
• Remove any obstacles between the
remote and the remote sensor on the
unit, and position the unit away from
fluorescent lights.
• Point the remote at the system’s sensor.
• Move the remote closer to the system.
Press DISPLAY once while the system is
off. The demonstration disappears.
The system does not turn on.
Is the power cord plugged in?
The system has entered standby
mode unexpectedly.
There is no sound.
• Are the + and – speaker cords shortcircuited?
• Are you using only the supplied
speakers?
• Is anything blocking the ventilation
holes on the back of the system?
Sound comes from one channel, or
the left and right volumes are
unbalanced.
The child lock function has been enabled.
To disable the child lock, hold down x
on the unit until “CHILD LOCK OFF”
appears on the display.
CD/MP3 player
The sound skips, or the disc will not
play.
• Wipe the disc clean, and replace it.
• Move the system to a location away
from vibration (for example, on top of
a stable stand).
• Move the speakers away from the
system, or place them on separate
stands. At high volume, speaker
vibration may cause the sound to skip.
Play does not start from the first
track.
• Place the speakers as symmetrically as
possible.
• Connect only the supplied speakers.
Return to Normal Play by pressing PLAY
MODE repeatedly until both “PGM” and
“SHUF” disappear.
Severe hum or noise.
Starting playback takes more time
than usual.
• Move the system away from sources of
noise.
• Connect the system to a different wall
outlet.
• Install a noise filter (available
separately) to the power cord.
Additional Information
This is not a malfunction. The system
enters standby mode automatically in
about 30 minutes when there is no
operation and audio signal output. See
“To turn off the automatic standby
function” (page 27).
Except ?/1, no buttons on the unit
work, and “CHILD LOCK” appears on

The following instances can increase the
time it takes to start playback.
– a disc recorded with a complicated tree
structure
– a disc recorded in multisession mode
– a disc that has not been finalized (a disc
to which data can be added)
– a disc that has many folders
The disc tray does not open and
“LOCKED” appears.
