condensation on the transmitter with a soft cloth before operating the unit.

! Be careful not to damage the optical pickup or to touch it by hand.

design and specification changes for product improvement without prior notice. The
performance specification figures indicated are nominal values of production units.
There may be some deviations from these values in individual units.
" Care of discs
" Main unit (DVD player unit)
Discs are fairly resistant to damage, however mistracking can occur due to an accumulation of dirt on the disc surface. Follow the guidelines below for maximum enjoyment from your disc collection and player.
! Do not write on either side of the disc, particularly the non-label side from which
signals are read. Do not mark this surface.
! Keep your discs away from direct sunlight, heat, and excessive moisture.
! Always hold the discs by the edges. Fingerprints, dirt, or water on the discs can
cause noise or mistracking. If a disc is dirty or does not play properly, clean it with
a soft, dry cloth, wiping straight out from the center, along the radius.
