Precautions
Notes on the power cord
• When you are away on travel or otherwise for an extended
period of time, remove the plug from the wall outlet. A
small amount of power (1.0 W) is always consumed while

• When unplugging the player from the wall outlet,
always pull the plug, not the power cord.
• Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.
• Disconnect the power cord before cleaning the
player or moving the player.
• Do not alter, twist or pull the power cord, or put
anything heavy on it, which may cause fire, electric
shock, or other accidents.
• If the cord is damaged, consult a dealer and have the
power cord replaced with a new one.
Avoid moisture, water, dust, and high temperatures
• Do not place the player in moist or dusty places.
• If water gets inside the player, turn off the power and remove
the plug from the wall outlet, then consult your dealer. Using
the player in this state may cause a fire or electrical shock.
• Do not expose the player to direct sunlight or place it
near a heating device.
The Non-DVD side of a “DualDisc” does not comply with
