: Volume indication
1. When the inside of the car is very cold and
the player is used soon after switching on the
heater, moisture may form on the disc (CD/
MD) or the optical parts of the player and
proper playback may not be possible. If moisture forms on the disc (CD/MD), wipe it off
with a soft cloth. If moisture forms on the optical parts of the player, do not use the player
for about one hour. The condensation will disappear naturally allowing normal operation.
2. Driving on extremely bumpy roads which
cause severe vibration may cause the sound
to skip.

*The frequency, play time, clock, etc. are
displayed.
: Search indication
: Mute indication
3. This unit uses a precision mechanism. Even
in the event that trouble arises, never open
the case, disassemble the unit, or lubricate
the rotating parts.
4. TV broadcast reception
When receiving the TV broadcasts, the
strength of the signals changes since the car
is moving, so in some cases it may not be
possible to receive clear pictures.
• TV signals are strongly linear, so reception
is affected by buildings, mountains and
other obstacles.
• Such external factors such as electric train
lines, a high voltage lines, and signal devices may disturb the picture or cause
noise.
Use only compact discs bearing the
mark.
Do not play heart-shaped, octagonal, or other specially shaped compact discs.
Some CDs recorded in CD-R mode may not be usable.
Even when recorded in CD-RW mode, some CDs not be usable.
Handling
Storage
• New discs may have some roughness around
the edges. If such discs are used, the player
may not work or the sound may skip. Use a
ball-point pen or the like to remove any roughness from the edge of the disc.
• Do not expose compact discs to direct sunlight or any heat source.
• Do not expose compact discs to excess humidity or dust.
• Do not expose compact discs to direct heat
from heaters.
Ball-point pen
Roughness
∗ If the reception is poor, switch to a station with
good reception.
Caution on Handling
On CDs
• Exercise a good precaution when loading a CD
disc with the panel open.
• Never turn off the power and remove the unit
from the car with a CD loaded.

• Never stick labels on the surface of the compact disc or mark the surface with a pencil or
pen.
• Never play a compact disc with any cellophane tape or other glue on it or with peeling
off marks. If you try to play such a compact
disc, you may not be able to get it back out of
the CD player or it may damage the CD
player.
• Do not use compact discs that have large
scratches, are misshapen, cracked, etc. Use
of such discs may cause misoperation or
damage.
• To remove a compact disc from its storage
case, press down on the center of the case
and lift the disc out, holding it carefully by the
edges.

9. CAUTIONS ON HANDLING
For a longer service life, be sure to read the following cautions.
• Be sure to store the LCD panel inside the
main unit when parking the car outdoors for
long period of time. The LCD panel will operate properly in a temperature range of 0 to
60˚C.
• Don’t allow any liquids on the set from drinks,
umbrellas etc. Doing so may damage the internal circuitry.
• Do not disassemble or modify the set in any
way. Doing so may result in damage.
• Do not draw the LCD panel out and use it as a
tray. Also, subjecting the LCD panel to shocks
may result in breakage, deformation or other
damage.
• Do not let cigarettes burn the display. Doing so
may damage or deform the cabinet.
• If a problem should occur, have the set inspected at your store of purchase.
• Do not insert objects or poke in the space between the LCD panel and the main unit when
the panel is tilted.
• Do not place anything on the display when the
panel is tilted.
• The remote controller may not work if the remote control sensor is exposed to direct sunlight.
• In extremely cold weather, the display movement may slow down and the display may
darken, but this is not a malfunction. The display will work normally when the temperature
increases.
• Small black and shiny spots inside the LCD
panel are normal for LCD products.
• The LCD panel may stop temporarily when it
opens or closes, when the engine stops or
when it is cold.
• The touchkeys on the display operate when
slightly touched. Do not press the touchkey
screen with much force.
• Do not push the case surrounding the
touchkey panel with much force. This may
cause malfunctioning of the touchkeys.
Cleaning
• Cleaning the cabinet
Use a soft, dry cloth and gently wipe off the
dirt. For tough dirt, apply some neutral detergent diluted in water to a soft cloth, wipe off
the dirt gently, then wipe again with a dry
cloth.
• Cleaning the LCD panel
The LCD panel tends to collect dust, so wipe
it off occasionally with a soft cloth. The surface is easily scratched, so do not rub it with
hard objects.
Do not use benzene, thinner, car cleaner, etc.,
as these substances may damage the cabinet
or cause the paint to peel. Also, leaving rubber or plastic products in contact with the
cabinet for long periods of time may cause
stains.
