DICHIARAZIONE DI CONFORMITA’
Si dichiara che l’apparecchio MCD288E Philips
risponde alle prescrizioni dell’art. 2 comma 1
del D.M. 28 Agosto 1995 n. 548.
Fatto a Eindhoven
Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 3 Amp,
A.S.T.A. or BSI approved type.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket
outlets, it should be cut off and an appropriate
plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should
have a value of 3 Amp. If a plug without a fuse
is used, the fuse at the distribution board
should not be greater than 3 Amp.
Philips Consumer Electronics
Philips, Glaslaan 2
5616 JB Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Norge
Typeskilt finnes på apparatens underside.
Note: The severed plug must be disposed of to
avoid a possible shock hazard should it be
inserted into a 13 Amp socket elsewhere.
Observer: Nettbryteren er sekundert
innkoplet. Den innebygde netdelen er
derfor ikke frakoplet nettet så lenge
apparatet er tilsluttet nettkontakten.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured with
the following code: blue = neutral (N),
brown = live (L).
For å redusere faren for brann eller elektrisk
støt, skal apparatet ikke utsettes for regn eller
fuktighet.
¶ As these colours may not correspond with the
colour markings identifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows:
– Connect the blue wire to the terminal
marked N or coloured black.
– Connect the brown wire to the terminal
marked L or coloured red.
– Do not connect either wire to the earth
terminal in the plug, marked E (or e) or
coloured green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain
that the cord grip is clamped over the sheath
of the lead - not simply over the two wires.

Avoid condensation problem
● The lens may cloud over when the player is
suddenly moved from cold to warm
surroundings, making it impossible to play a disc.
Leave the player in the warm environment until
the moisture evaporates.
Do not block the vents
● Do not operate the system in an enclosed
cabinet and allow about 10 cm (4 inches) of free
space all around the player for adequate
ventilation.
● The ventilation should not be impeded by
covering the ventilation openings with items,
such as newspapers table-cloths, curtains, etc.
Cleaning the cabinet
● Use soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild
detergent solution. Do not use a solution
containing alcohol, spirits, ammonia or abrasives.
English
General Information/Maintenance
Hearing Safety
Listen at a moderate volume.
● Using headphones at a high volume can impair
your hearing. This product can produce sounds
in decibel ranges that may cause hearing loss for
a normal person, even for exposure less than a
minute. The higher decibel ranges are offered
for those that may have already experienced
some hearing loss.
● Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing
"comfort level" adapts to higher volumes of
sound. So after prolonged listening, what sounds
"normal" can actually be loud and harmful to
your hearing. To guard against this, set your
volume to a safe level before your hearing
adapts and leave it there.
To establish a safe volume level:
● Set your volume control at a low setting.
● Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it
comfortably and clearly, without distor tion.
Cleaning discs
● To clean a CD, wipe it in a
straight line from the center
towards the edge using soft and
lint-free cloth. A cleaning agent
may damage the disc.
Listen for reasonable periods of time:
● Prolonged exposure to sound, even at normally
"safe" levels, can also cause hearing loss.
● Write only on the printed side
of a CDR(W) and only with a soft felt-tipped
pen.
● Handle the disc by its edge. Do not touch the
surface.
Finding a suitable location
● Place the player on a flat, hard, stable surface.
● Install this unit near the AC outlet and where the
AC power plug can be reached easily.
● Be sure to use your equipment reasonably and
take appropriate breaks.
Be sure to observe the following
guidelines when using your headphones.
● Listen at reasonable volumes for reasonable
periods of time.
● Be careful not to adjust the volume as your
hearing adapts.
● Do not turn up the volume so high that you
can't hear what's around you.
● You should use caution or temporarily
discontinue use in potentially hazardous
situations.
● Do not use headphones while operating a
motorized vehicle, cycling, skateboarding, etc.; it
may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many
areas.
