detergent diluted in 5 to 6 parts water to a soft cloth, wring out thoroughly, wipe
off the dirt, then wipe the player with a dry cloth. Note that alcohol, thinner, benzene,
insecticides, etc., may cause the print or coating to peel off. Also avoid leaving

-7-
Precautions for Battery Pack Operation
Operation of the batter y pack
soot, etc.
Charge the battery pack fully before
using it for the first time.
When the battery pack is stored for
a long period, at least once an year
it is recommended to discharge it
fully on the portable DVD player,
recharge it fully and store it again.
When the surrounding temperature
is high, the battery pack may
sometimes be unusable due to
activation of protection circuitry.
Ser vice life and disposal
When the charging time or available
operation time becomes extremely
short, the battery may be reaching
the end of its life. The battery pack
can be used for about 300 cycles of
recharging and operations.
When the portable DVD player is
powered from the battery pack and
if the player has not been operated
for about 10 minutes with the power
switched on, the player will turn off
automatically. (Auto power off)
The battery pack becomes hot after
use and the portable DVD player
also becomes hot during use. This
is not malfunction.
To dispose of a used battery pack,
wrap a piece of tape around the
terminal section and treat it in
compliance with your local
regulations.
When the battery pack is not to be
used for a long period, be sure to
remove it from the portable DVD
player. If the battery pack is left
attached, continual flow of weak
current renders it overdischarged
and eventually unusable even when
you try to charge it later.
Caution:
Danger of explosion if battery is
incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with the same or
equivalent type.
If the portable DVD player is switched
on while the battery pack is not fully
charged, the operation may
sometimes be unstable. Be sure to
charge the battery pack fully before
use.
Storage
The battery pack should be stored
