Blower

• Remove the CD from its case by holding it at the edges while pressing the case’s center hole lightly.

• Do not touch the shiny surface of the CD, or bend the CD.

• Put the CD back in its case after use to prevent warping.

• Be careful not to scratch the surface of the CD when placing it back in the case.

• Avoid exposure to direct sunlight, temperature extremes, and moisture.

• A dirty CD may not play correctly. If a CD does become dirty, wipe it with a soft cloth in a straight line from center to edge.

Lens

• If there are fingerprints, etc. on the lens, gently wipe clean with a cotton swab.

CAUTION:

• Do not use any solvent (for example, conventional record cleaner, spray thinner, benzine, etc.) to clean a CD.

General Notes

In general, you will have the best performance by keeping your CDs and the mechanism clean.

• Store CDs in their cases, and keep them in cabinets or on shelves.

• Keep the System’s CD door closed when not in use.

Cleaning the Unit

• Stains on the Unit

Should be wiped off with a soft cloth. If the Unit is heavily stained, wipe it with a cloth soaked in water-diluted neutral detergent and wrung well, then wipe clean with a dry cloth.

• Since the Unit may deteriorate in quality, become damaged or get its paint peeled off, be careful about the followings.

Moisture Condensation

Moisture may condense on the lens inside the System in the following cases:

• After turning on heating in the room.

• In a damp room.

• If the System is brought directly from a cold to a warm place.

Should this occur, the System may malfunction. In this case, leave the

System turned on for a few hours until the moisture evaporates, unplug the AC power cord, and then plug it in again.
