Precautions
On safety
• Completely disconnect the power cord (mains
lead) from the wall outlet (mains) if it is not
going to be used for an extended period of
time. When unplugging the unit, always grip
the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid get into the
system, unplug the system, and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it again.
• (For the customers in the USA)
One blade of the plug is wider than other for
the purpose of safety and will fit to the wall
outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert
the plug fully into the outlet, contact your
dealer.
• AC power cord must be changed only at the
qualified service shop.
On placement
• Do not place the system in an inclined
position or in locations that are extremely hot,
cold, dusty, dirty, or humid or lacking
adequate ventilation, or subject to vibration,
direct sunlight or a bright light.
• Be careful when placing the system on
surfaces that have been specially treated (for
example, wax, oil, polish) as staining or
discoloration of the surface may result.
• If the system is brought directly from a cold to
a warm location or is placed in a very damp
room, moisture may condense on the lens
inside the unit, and cause the system to
malfunction. In this situation, leave the
system turned off until the moisture
evaporates.
On heat buildup
• Heat buildup on the unit during operation is
normal and is not a cause for alarm.
• Do not touch the cabinet if it has been used
continuously at a high volume because the
cabinet may have become hot.
• Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.
On the speaker system
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean this system with a soft cloth slightly
moistened with a mild detergent solution.
Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring
powder, or solvent, such as thinner, benzine, or
alcohol.
On Bluetooth communication
• Bluetooth devices should be used within
approximately 10 meters (33 feet)
(unobstructed distance) of each other. The
effective communication range may become
shorter under the following conditions.
– When a person, metal object, wall or other
obstruction is between the devices with a
Bluetooth connection
– Locations where a wireless LAN is installed
– Around microwave ovens that are in use
– Locations where other electromagnetic
waves occur
Additional Information
The built-in speaker system is not magnetically
shielded, and the picture on nearby TV sets may
become magnetically distorted. In this situation,
turn off the TV, wait 15 to 30 minutes, and turn
it back on. If there is no improvement, move the
system far away from the TV.
• Bluetooth devices and wireless LAN (IEEE
802.11b/g) use the same frequency band
(2.4 GHz). When using your Bluetooth device
near a device with wireless LAN capability,
electromagnetic interference may occur. This
could result in lower data transfer rates, noise,
or inability to connect. If this happens, try the
following remedies:
– Try connecting this system and Bluetooth
device when you are at least 10 meters
(33 feet) away from the wireless LAN
equipment.
– Turn off the power to the wireless LAN
equipment when using your Bluetooth
device within 10 meters (33 feet).
• The radio waves broadcast by this system may
interfere with the operation of some medical
devices. Since this interference may result in
malfunction, always turn off the power on this
system and Bluetooth device in the following
locations:
– In hospitals, on trains, in airplanes, at gas
stations, and any place where flammable
gasses may be present
– Near automatic doors or fire alarms
• This system supports security functions that
comply with the Bluetooth specification as a
means of ensuring security during
communication using Bluetooth technology.
However, this security may be insufficient
depending on the setting contents and other
factors, so always be careful when performing
communication using Bluetooth technology.
• Sony cannot be held liable in any way for
damages or other loss resulting from
information leaks during communication
using Bluetooth technology.
• Bluetooth communication is not necessarily
guaranteed with all Bluetooth devices that
have the same profile as this system.
• Bluetooth devices connected with this system
must comply with the Bluetooth specification
prescribed by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc., and
must be certified to comply. However, even
when a device complies with the Bluetooth
specification, there may be cases where the
characteristics or specifications of the
Bluetooth device make it impossible to
connect, or may result in different control
methods, display or operation.
• Noise may occur or the audio may cut off
depending on the Bluetooth device connected
with this system, the communications
environment, or surrounding conditions.
