OWNER'S
MANUAL
HINTS FOR CORRECT AND
SAFE OPERATION
The CDC-825 is designed to be operated only on 12 volt DC
negative ground systems. The unit can not be used on 24 volt or
positive ground systems.
TEMPERATURE
The unit may not operate correctly in extremely hot or cold
temperatures. It is equipped with a built-in thermal protection
circuit which will stop operation of the unit when the temperature
reaches the pre-set level. If this should happen, the unit will
resume operation when the vehicle returns to a normal temperature range.
Remove the magazine from the unit when it is not being used
during hot weather. If the discs are left in an extremely hot car they
may warp. If the CD changer is not used for long periods of time,
remove the compact discs from the magazine, and store them in
their cases.
CONDENSATION
Moisture can condense on the laser lens of the CD changer during
rainy and humid days, or right after the heater is turned on in the
car (if the changer is mounted in the passenger compartment). If
this should happen the unit will not operate correctly. To remedy
the situation, remove the discs from the unit and wait approximately one hour. During this time the moisture will evaporate and
the unit will operate normally.
1
INTERRUPTIONS IN SOUND (Skipping)
The sound from the unit may "skip" and be interrupted if the antivibration springs are not set correctly, if the changer is mounted
in excess of a 15° angle, or when travelling on very rough road
surfaces. If this should occur, check for errors made during
installation or wait for the road surface to improve.
3" (8cm) CD-SINGLES
The CDC-825 is not designed to play 3" (8cm) CD-Single discs.
Inserting a 3" disc into the magazine, either with or without a 3" disc
adaptor, can damage the changer and the disc. Such damage will
not be covered by the Warranty on this product.
HANDLING THE DISCS
Dirt, dust, scratches and warpage cause sound skips during playback and a deterioration
of sound quality. To take proper care of your discs:
1. Use compact discs that have the mark shown on the right.
2. Fingerprints and dust should be carefully wiped off the disc's signal surface (glossy side)
with a soft cloth. Unlike conventional records, the compact disc has no grooves to collect
dust and microscopic debris, so gently wiping with a soft cloth should remove most
particles. Wipe in a straight motion from the inside to the outside of the disc. Small dust
particles or light stains will have absolutely no effect on reproduction quality.
3. Never use such chemicals as record sprays, antistatic sprays or fluids, benzine or thinner
to clean compact discs. Such chemicals could irreparably damage the disc's plastic
surface.
4. Discs should be put back in their cases after use to avoid serious scratches that could
cause the sound to skip.
5. Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high humidity, or high temperatures for extended
periods of time. Long exposure to high temperatures can warp the disc.
6. Do not stick paper, labels, or tape on the disc surface.
7. Do not write with any type of pen, pencil, or marker on the disc surface.
8. To minimize fingerprints and smudges on the signal surface, always try to hold the discs
by their outer edge and center hole.

playing side down
CD magazine
LOADING DISCS INTO THE MAGAZINE
The CDC-825 CD Changer uses a specially-designed magazine to
hold up to 10 compact discs. Insert discs into the magazine with the
label side up as shown in Figure 1. As each disc is inserted into the
magazine, the push-out knob for that slot will be raised as shown in
Figure 2.

NOTES:
Avoid touching the playing side of the disc.
Only one disc can be inserted into each tray of the magazine. Do
not try to insert more than one disc into each tray as damage to
the discs and magazine may occur.
The CDC-825 is not designed to play 3" CD-Single discs (8cm).
Inserting a 3" disc into the magazine, either with or without a 3"
disc adaptor, can damage the changer and the disc. Such
damage will not be covered by the Warranty on this product.
Additional CD magazines are available as accessory item

INSTRUCTIONS
WIRED CONTROL UNIT
The CDC-825 10-disc changer is designed to operate through the FM
stereo section of your automotive sound system and therefore the
adjustment of volume, balance, tone and other audio adjustments are
made by using the controls on the car stereo. Control of disc play is by
the control unit of the CDC-825 which can be conveniently mounted to
the dashboard. The output signal from the unit is at either 89.1 or 88.7
MHz. (set by installer) on the FM band and it is recommended that a preset memory push-button of the radio be set to the output frequency of the
CDC-825 to simplify operation of the system. Consult the operating
instructions of the car stereo for directions on setting the memory pushbutton.
SETTING UP FOR OPERATION
Following the instructions in the "USE OF THE CD MAGAZINE" section,
load the desired number (up to 10) of 5" (12cm) compact discs into the
CD magazine and insert the magazine into the changer. DO NOT USE

IN THE CDC-825.
Turn on the car stereo and select FM band operation. Tune the radio to
either 87.7 or 89.1 MHz. (depending on the frequency to which the
installer has set the unit) or push the pre-set memory button that has
been set as per the above description.

bl REMOTE SENSOR
The sensor for the infrared signal from the optional wireless remote
control is located behind this lens. For optimal operation of the remote
control, keep the lens clean and do not allow objects to block it.
bmRESETBUTTON
A reset button is located on the front panel of the remote control which
must be activated with a pen or other thin object as it is recessed to
prevent accidental engagement. The reset circuitry is provided to
protect the unit's microprocessor and laser pick-up system and should
only be activated under the following circumstances:
1. Initial installation after all wiring is completed (this must be done).
2. If abnormal disc operation is encountered, the reset button may
be pressed to clear the system and return to normal operation.
IMPORTANT: Use of the Reset button on the CD Changer will cause the
CD magazine to be automatically ejected. Make certain
changer door is fully opened prior to using Reset.
CAUTION: When the CD magazine is ejected by the use of the Reset
button, whichever disc was in play prior to depressing Reset
may be left in the play position in the changer. It is critical
that before re-inserting the CD magazine, you must REMOVE ALL DISCS from it. After you have inserted the
empty CD magazine, press the "EJECT" button on the
changer and the "in play" disc will be loaded into the empty
magazine. You may then remove the magazine and re-load
as many discs as desired.
WARNING: Avoid use of Reset buttons after initial use unless you have
a definite abnormal disc operation. Use the EJECT button
on the changer to remove the CD magazine for normal
operation.
