WARNING
For your safety, the driver should not watch the TV or operate the controls while driving.
Please note that watching and operating the TV while driving are prohibited by law in some
countries. Also, while driving, keep the volume to a level at which external sounds can be
heard.
1. This unit is applicable for on-road 4 wheel vehicle purpose only. Use for tractor, fork truck,
bulldozer, off road vehicle, 2 or 3 wheel motor
bicycle, marine boat or other special purpose
vehicle is not appropriate.
2. 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)

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.
3. Driving on extremely bumpy roads which cause
severe vibration may cause the sound to skip.
5. 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.
∗ If the reception is poor, switch to a station with
good reception.
INFORMATION FOR USERS:.
CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS TO THIS
PRODUCT NOT APPROVED BY THE MANUFACTURER WILL VOID THE WARRANTY.
4. 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.

8. 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.
