Precautions
This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits set out in the EMC
Directive using a connection cable shorter
than 3 metres.
On placement
• Place the player in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the
player.
• Do not place the player on a soft surface
such as a rug that might block the ventilation
holes.
• Do not install this player in a confined space,
such as a bookshelf or similar unit.
• Do not place the player in a location near
heat sources, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust, or mechanical
shock.
• Do not place the player outdoors, in
vehicles, on ships, or on other vessels.
• If the player is brought directly from a cold

damp room, moisture may condense on the
lenses inside the player. Should this occur,
the player may not operate properly. In this
case, remove the disc and leave the player
turned on for about half an hour until the
moisture evaporates.

device, consult your physician or the
manufacturer of your medical device before

with a minimum distance of at least 20 cm or
more between the player and a person’s
body (excluding extremities: hands, wrists,

• Do not place heavy or unstable objects on
the player.
• Do not place any objects other than discs on
the disc tray. Doing so may cause damage to
the player or the object.
• Take out any discs from the tray when you
move the player. If you don’t, the disc may
be damaged.
• Disconnect the AC power cord (mains lead)
and all other cables from the player when
you move the player.
On power sources
• The player is not disconnected from the AC
power source (mains) as long as it is
connected to the wall outlet, even if the
player itself has been turned off.
• Disconnect the player from the wall outlet if
you are not going to use the player for a long
time. To disconnect the AC power cord
(mains lead), grasp the plug itself; never pull
the cord.
• Observe following points to prevent the AC
power cord (mains lead) being damaged. Do
not use the AC power cord (mains lead) if it
is damaged, as doing so may result in an
electric shock or fire.
– Do not pinch the AC power cord (mains
lead) between the player and wall, shelf,
etc.
– Do not put anything heavy on the AC
power cord (mains lead) or pull on the AC
power cord (mains lead) itself.
On adjusting volume
Do not turn up the volume while listening to a
section with very low level inputs or no audio
signals. Your ears and the speakers may be
damaged when the sound level reaches the
peak.
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a
soft cloth. Do not use any type of abrasive pad,
scouring powder or solvent such as alcohol or
benzine.
On cleaning discs, disc/lens cleaners
Do not use cleaning discs or disc/lens cleaners
(including wet or spray types). These may
cause the apparatus to malfunction.

connecting or disconnecting the HDMI
cable. Do not twist or force the HDMI
connector into the HDMI OUT jack.

About wireless LAN security
Since communication via the wireless
LAN function is established by radio
waves, the wireless signal may be
susceptible to interception. To protect
wireless communication, this player
supports various security functions. Be
sure to correctly configure the security
settings in accordance with your network
environment.
No Security
Although you can easily make settings,
anyone can intercept wireless
communication or intrude into your
wireless network, even without any
sophisticated tools. Keep in mind that
there is a risk of unauthorised access or
interception of data.
WEP
WEP applies security to
communications to prevent outsiders
from intercepting communications or
intruding into your wireless network.
WEP is a legacy security technology that
enables older devices, which do not
support TKIP/AES, to be connected.
WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK (TKIP)
TKIP is a security technology developed
to correct the deficiencies of WEP. TKIP
assures a higher security level than
WEP.
WPA-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (AES)
AES is a security technology that uses an
advanced security method that is distinct
from WEP and TKIP.
AES assures a higher security level than
WEP or TKIP.
