CAUTION concerning the Power Cord
Most appliances recommend they be placed upon
a dedicated circuit;
That is, a single outlet circuit which powers only
that appliance and has no additional outlets or

outlets. Overloaded wall outlets, loose or damaged
wall outlets, extension cords, frayed power cords, or
damaged or cracked wire insulation are dangerous.
Any of these conditions could result in electric
shock or fire. Periodically examine the cord of your
appliance, and if its appearance indicates damage
or deterioration, unplug it, discontinue use of the
appliance, and have the cord replaced with an
exact replacement part by an authorized service
center. Protect the power cord from physical or
mechanical abuse, such as being twisted, kinked,
pinched, closed in a door, or walked upon. Pay
particular attention to plugs, wall outlets, and
the point where the cord exits the appliance. To
disconnect power from the mains, pull out the
mains cord plug. When installing the product,
ensure that the plug is easily accessible.
NOTICE: For safety marking information including
product identification and supply ratings, please
refer to the main label on the bottom or rear of the

,,Note
yy Depending on the recording software & the
finalization, some recorded discs (CD-R/RW,
DVD±R/RW, BD-R/RE) may not be playable.
yy BD-R/RE, DVD±R/RW and CD-R/RW discs

these require certain pre-existing conditions
to ensure compatible playback.
yy Customers should note that permission
is required in order to download MP3 /
WMA files and music from the Internet.
Our company has no right to grant such
permission. Permission should always be
sought from the copyright owner.
