ply only of the type described in the operating instructions or
as marked on the unit.
2. Polarization -- If the unit is equipped with a polarized AC
power plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other),
that plug will fit into the AC outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit,
contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do
not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
3. Power Cord Protection -- AC power supply cords should be
routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched
by items placed upon or against them. Never take hold of the
plug or cord if your hand is wet, and always grasp the plug
body when connecting or disconnecting it.
4. Nonuse Periods -- When the unit is not used, turn the power
off. When left unused for a long period of time, the unit should
be unplugged from the household AC outlet.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven
surfaces may cause the unit and cart combination to overturn.
7. Wall or Ceiling Mounting -- The unit should not be mounted
to a wall or ceiling, unless specified in this operating instructions.
Maintenance
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth
moistened with mild detergent solution.
Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder
such as alcohol or benzine.

2. Condensation -- Moisture may form on the lens in the following cases...
• immediately after a heater has been turned on.
• in a steamy or very humid room.
• when the unit is suddenly moved from a cold environment to
a warm one.
If moisture forms inside this unit, it may not operate properly.
To correct this problem, turn on the power and wait about one
hour for the moisture to evaporate.
3. Heat -- The unit should be situated away from heat sources
such as radiators and the like. It also should not be placed in
temperatures less than 5°C (41°F) or greater than 35°C
(95 ° F).
Placement
-- The unit should be situated
so that its location
or position does not interfere with its proper ventilation. Allow
10 cm (4") clearance from the rear of the unit.
2. Foreign Material -- Care should be taken so that objects do
not fall into and liquids are not spilled into the unit. Do not subject this unit to excessive smoke, dust, mechanical vibration,
or shock.
3. Magnetism -- The unit should be situated away from equipment or devices that generate strong magnetism.
4. Stacking -- Do not place heavy objects, other than system
components, on top of the unit.
5. Surface -- Place the unit on a flat, level surface.

Therefore, after using delete play, it is possible to cancel the
delete mode and use another play mode (except program play)
and then still use the same delete play again at a later time.
In addition, if the disc is replaced with another one, delete play
will be carried out using the new disc. If non-existing entries occur at this time, they will be canceled.
For your reference:
The delete mode and the contents to be deleted will remain
stored in the memory even after the unit is switched off.
However, if the power cord is unplugged or the power supply is
otherwise interrupted for an extended length of time, the contents of the memory will be erased.
