1 Important safety information
General maintenance
To avoid damage or malfunction:
• Do not expose the player to excessive heat caused by heating equipment or direct
sunlight.
• Do not drop your player or allow objects to fall on your player.
• Do not allow your player to be submerged in water. Do not expose headphone socket or
battery compartment to water, as water entering the set may cause major damage.
• Do not use any cleaning agents containing alcohol, ammonia, benzene, or abrasives as
these may harm the set.
• Active mobile phones in the vicinity may cause interference.
• Back up your files. Please ensure that you retain the original files you have downloaded to
your device. Philips is not responsible for any loss of data if the product becomes damaged
or not readable / legible.
• Manage (transfer, delete, etc.) your music files only with the supplied music software to
avoid problems!
About operating and storage temperatures
• Operate in a place where temperature is always between 0 and 35ºC (32 to 95ºF)
• Store in a place where temperature is always between -20 and 45ºC (-4 to 113ºF)
• Battery life may be shortened in low temperature conditions.

Hearing Safety
Listen at a moderate volume.
• Using headphones at a high volume can impair your hearing. This product can produce
sounds in decibel ranges that may cause hearing loss for a normal person, even for
exposure less than a minute. The higher decibel ranges are offered for those that
may have already experienced some hearing loss.
• Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher
volumes of sound. So after prolonged listening, what sounds “normal” can actually be loud
and harmful to your hearing. To guard against this, set your volume to a safe level before
your hearing adapts and leave it there.
To establish a safe volume level:
• Set your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, without distortion.
Listen for reasonable periods of time:
• Prolonged exposure to sound, even at normally “safe” levels, can also cause hearing loss.
• Be sure to use your equipment reasonably and take appropriate breaks.
Downloaded from ManualMPlayer.com Manuals

Be sure to observe the following guidelines when using your headphones.
• Listen at reasonable volumes for reasonable periods of time.
• Be careful not to adjust the volume as your hearing adapts.
• Do not turn up the volume so high that you can’t hear what’s around you.
• You should use caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.
• Do not use headphones while operating a motorized vehicle, cycling, skateboarding, etc.; it
may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.
Important (for models supplied with headphones):
Philips guarantees compliance with the maximum sound power of its audio players as
determined by relevant regulatory bodies only with the original model of provided
headphones. In case this one needs replacement, we recommend that you contact your
retailer to order a model identical to that of the original, provided by Philips.

want.
3 Click the down arrow beneath the Rip tab and select Bit Rate to choose the bit rate

4 Insert the Audio CD into your computer's CD drive.
> All the tracks from the CD are listed. By default, Windows Media Player will start to rip all
the songs in the CD. To modify this option, click the down arrow beneath the Rip tab and select
Rip CD Automatically When Inserted > Never.
Important Make sure that you are connected to the Internet before you start ripping
so that Windows Media Player can download the album and track information from an
online music database. If your computer is not connected to the Internet, you will have to
enter the album and track information manually.
As Windows Media Player may not always identify the right song on the CD and the online
music database may not always have the correct information (especially for new album
releases or albums from lesser-known artists), you may need to manually edit or enter the
album and track information. See Edit song information via Windows Media Player.
