Page ABOUT OPTICAL DISCS
•
Do not subject discs to prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, high humidity,
or high temperatures.
•
Do not bend or press discs.
•
To reduce the risk of scratches, always put discs back in their case after
use. Store discs vertically in a cabinet.
•
Do not place stickers or labels on either side of a disc.
Cleaning a Disc
Use a dry, soft cloth to wipe off any fingerprints and dusts from the playing
surface of the disc. Wipe in a straight line radially from the center to the outside
edge of the disc. Small dust particles and light stains will not affect playback
quality.
Never use chemicals such as record sprays, anti-static sprays, benzene, or thinners to clean a disc. Doing so will damage the surface of
the disc permanently.
