Using the unit with an audio system
Using a stereo connection cable (not included), you can listen to
CDs through your audio system.
• Connect the cable to the amplifier after turning off its power.
• Do not connect the cable to the PHONO jacks on the amplifier.
• Obtain the optional connecting cable if the amplifier comes
with mini-phone jacks.
• Adjust the volume level on the amplifier.
OUT jack
For connection to the car audio system:
If there is an Aux jack in the car audio system, connect the OUT
jack of the CD player with the Aux jack using a 3.5 mm diameter
stereo mini-plug signal cord (optional).
Depending on the automobile used, noise may occur, and in that case,
it is recommended that a KS-U32 noise filter (optional) be used.

Before requesting service for this unit, check the chart below for a possible cause of the problem
you are experiencing. Some simple checks or a minor adjustment on your part may eliminate the
problem and restore proper operation.
If you are in doubt about some of the check points, or if the remedies indicated in the chart do not
solve the problem, refer to the directory of Authorized Service Centers (enclosed with this unit) to
locate a convenient service center, or consult your dealer for instructions.
Cannot close cover.
Is the disc properly secured in place?
Cannot play discs.
• Is the unit in HOLD status?
• Is the disc properly secured in place?
• Is there moisture condensation on the lens?
(Wait for about an hour and then try again.)
Wipe the unit with a soft cloth. Remove stubborn dirt using a
cloth which has been dipped in water or soapy water and wrung
out, and then wipe dry.
• If you intend to use a chemically treated cleaning cloth, read its
directions first.
• Do not use alcohol or paint thinners.
Cannot remove disc.
Did you press the PUSH button to release the disc?
Tracks on disc do not play
in order, starting with the
first track.
Is the RESUME, NORMAL, RANDOM (play mode) selector
in the NORMAL position?
Cannot hear music—too
noisy.
• Is the headphones plug inserted all the way?
• Is the plug dirty? (Wipe away dirt on the plug.)
Rechargeable batteries
• Only the BN-R122 battery can be recharged.
• If the power delivered by the batteries lasts for a very short
time after recharging, it means that the batteries’ service life is
over. Do not use them any more.
• Recharging already charged batteries will shorten their service
life.
• When recharging batteries for the first time or when they have
not been used for a long period of time, the play time may be
shorter than usual. In a case like this, repeatedly recharge and
discharge the batteries. This will restore them to their regular
state.
• Do not allow any metal objects to touch the terminals of rechargeable batteries since this may cause short-circuiting
which is dangerous.
• Do not peel off the plastic covering on the rechargeable batteries. Short-circuiting may occur which is dangerous.

Supplied Accessories
Check the packing carton for these accessories.
If moisture has formed on a disc
When moisture has formed because the
disc was brought suddenly into a warm
room from a cold environment, wipe it off
using a soft dry cloth.
When storing discs
Avoid locations which are
• Exposed to direct sunlight.
• Susceptible to high levels of humidity or
dust.
• Directly exposed to heat from a heating
appliance.
• On top of a car dashboard or near the
rear window.
Are you using the unit body too near a TV or tuner? (If the
TV or tuner is connected to a simple indoor antenna,
connect it to an outdoor antenna.)
Handling precautions
• On the label side (the side with writing)
Do not write anything using a pencil,
ball-point pen, etc. Do not stick on paper

• Handle the AC adaptor carefully. Improper handling is dangerous.
• Do not touch it with wet hands.
• Do not place heavy objects on top of it.
• Do not forcibly bend it.
• Be sure to connect only the AC adaptor provided with the unit.
• Disconnect the AC adaptor from the power outlet if the unit is
not going to be used for a long time.

When recharging is complete, unplug the
AC adaptor from the power outlet and the
DC IN jack.
Notes:
• It takes approximately 3 hours to recharge the rechargeable
batteries.
• Rechargeable batteries have a service life of approximately
300 charge-discharge cycles. If the operating time on one full
charge becomes noticeably shorter than it used to be, the battery has reached the end of its service life and should be replaced.
• Recharging is made only when the unit is powered off. (It is
not possible to recharge the batteries while playing a CD.)
• The AC adaptor and rechargeable batteries may become warm
while recharging is in progress. This in not a malfunction.
