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 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 system does not turn on. Is the power cord plugged in? The system has entered standby mode unexpectedly. This is not a malfunction. The system enters standby mode automatically in about 30 minutes when there is no operation or audio signal output. See “To turn off the automatic standby function.” The clock setting or the Play Timer operation has been cancelled unexpectedly. If about a minute elapses with no operation, the clock setting or Play Timer setting is cancelled automatically. Perform the operation again from the beginning. There is no sound. Are the + and speaker cords short-circuited? Are you using only the supplied speakers? Is anything blocking the ventilation holes of the system? The specified station may have temporarily stopped broadcast. Sound comes from one channel, or the left and right volumes are unbalanced. Place the speakers as symmetrically as possible. Connect only the supplied speakers. Severe hum or noise. 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. The remote does not function. USB device Tuner The connected USB device cannot be charged. Severe hum or noise, or stations cannot be received. Make sure the USB device is connected securely. Some USB devices can be charged only when the system is in the USB function. Connect the antenna properly. Try another place and orientation for better antenna reception. Keep the antenna away from the speaker cords and the power cord to avoid picking up noise. Turn off nearby electrical equipment. Are you using a supported USB device? If you connect an unsupported USB device, the following problems may occur. Check the information on the website about compatible USB devices with the URL listed under “Playing a file of the USB device.” The USB device is not recognized. File or folder names are not displayed on this system. Playback is not possible. The sound skips. There is noise. A distorted sound is output. “OVER CURRENT” appears. A problem has been detected with the level of electrical current from the (USB) port . Turn off the system and remove the USB device from the (USB) port . Make sure there is no problem with the USB device. If this display pattern persists, contact your nearest Sony dealer. There is no sound. The USB device is not connected correctly. Turn off the system, then reconnect the USB device. There is noise, skipping, or distorted sound. Turn off the system, then reconnect the USB device. The music data itself contains noise, or the sound is distorted. Noise may have been entered when creating music data due to the conditions of the computer. Create the music data again. The bit rate used when encoding the files was low. Send files encoded with higher bit rates to the USB device. “SEARCH” is displayed for an extended time, or it takes a long time before playback starts. The reading process can take a long time in the following cases. There are many folders or files on the USB device. The file structure is extremely complex. The memory capacity is excessive. The internal memory is fragmented. Erroneous display Send the music data to the USB device again, as the data stored in the USB device may have been corrupted. The character codes that can be displayed by this system are numbers and alphabets only. Other characters are not displayed correctly. The USB device is not recognized. Turn off the system and reconnect the USB device, then turn on the system. Check the information on the website about compatible USB devices with the URL listed under “Playing a file of the USB device.” The USB device does not work properly. Refer to the USB device operation manual for how to deal with this problem. Play does not start. 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. Turn off the system and reconnect the USB device, then turn on the system. Check the information on the website about compatible USB devices with the URL listed under “Playing a file of the USB device.” Press to start playback. CD/MP3/WMA player Play does not start from the first track. 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. Set the play mode to normal play mode. Starting playback takes more time than usual. The following discs 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. Several radio stations can be heard at the same time. Try another place and orientation for better antenna reception. Bundle the antenna cable using commercially available cord clips, for example, and adjust the cable length. DAB/DAB+ radio station is not received properly. Check all antenna connections, then perform the DAB Automatic Scan procedure (see “Reception of DAB/DAB+ radio station”). The current DAB/DAB+ service may not be available. Press PRESET+/PRESET to select a different service. If you have moved to another area, some services/frequencies may have changed and you may not be able to tune to your usual broadcast.

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 them in a car parked in direct sunlight. On safety 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. The AC power cord can be changed only by a qualified service facility. 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. 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 Set the play mode to Normal Play mode. 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. Files cannot be played back. Cleaning the cabinet The audio files may have inappropriate file extensions. The file extensions supported by this system are as follows: MP3: file extension “.mp3” WMA: file extension “.wma” The audio files may have been created in formats other than MP3/WMA formats. USB storage devices formatted with file systems other than FAT16 or FAT32 are unsupported.* If you use a partitioned USB storage device, only files on the first partition can be played. Files that are encrypted or protected by passwords, etc. cannot be played back. * This system supports FAT16 and FAT32, but some USB storage devices may not support all of these FAT. For details, see the operation manual of each USB storage device or contact the manufacturer. Specifications Clean this system with a soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution.
