The Color LCD Display and the Information Panel on the main unit show the following displays, providing information about the mode and functions operated.
WARNING
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 (DVD/
CD/MD) or the optical parts of the player and
proper playback may not be possible. If moisture forms on the disc (DVD/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.

cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged
to consult the dealer or an experienced radio/
TV technician for help.
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.
∗ If the reception is poor, switch to a station
with good reception.
: Random indication
: Beat-EQ indication
5. This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference
in a residential installation. This equipment
generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used
in accordance with the instructions, may

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 discs to direct sunlight or any
heat source.
• Do not expose discs to excess humidity or dust.
• Do not expose discs to direct heat from heaters.
Cleaning

Roughness
• Never stick labels on the surface of the disc or
mark the surface with a pencil or pen.
• Never play a disc with any cellophane tape or
other glue on it or with peeling off marks. If
you try to play such a disc, you may not be
able to get it back out of the DVD player or it

9. CAUTIONS ON HANDLING
LCD panel/Generalities
Owner’s manual
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

Precautions when creating an MP3 disc
●File extensions
1. Always add a file extension “.MP3” or “.mp3”
to an MP3 file by using single byte letters. If
you add a file extension other than specified
or forget to add the file extension “.MP3” or
“.mp3”, the file cannot be played. In addition,
if you use upper case and lower case letters
(capital and small letters) mixedly for file extensions, normal play may not be possible.
2. Files without MP3 data will not play.
●Logical format (File system)
1. When writing an MP3 file on a CD-R disc,
please select “ISO9660 level 1 or level 2
(without including expansion format)” as
the writing software format. Normal playback
may not be possible if the disc is recorded on
another format.
2. The folder name and filename can be displayed as the title during MP3 play but the
title must be within 31 and 27 single byte alphabetical letters and numerals for the folder
name and filename, respectively (without including an extension). Entering more letters
or numerals than specified may cause an incorrect display.
●Folder structure
1. A disc with a folder having more than 8 hierarchical levels will conflict with the ISO9660
and playback will be impossible.
●Number of files or folders
1. A total of 255 files and folders are allowed.
(However, the maximum number of folders
must be within 254.) When the number of files
and folders is more than 256, playback of
tracks in excess of that number is impossible.
2. Tracks are played in the order that they were
recorded onto a disc. (Tracks might not always be played in the order displayed on the
PC.)
• Some noise may occur depending on the
type of encoder software used while recording.
• Files created using LAME (Lame Aint MP3
Encoder) may not be played properly.
• In case of a track recorded at VBR (variable bit rate), the display for the play time
of the track may be slightly different from
the actual play time. Also, the recommended value of VBR ranges from 64 kbps
to 320 kbps.
• Depending on the damage conditions of a
file, it may occur that the file is not played
and the next file is played instead. Also, if
the damage is in a severe condition, play
stops showing the “DISC ERROR” display.
After disc selection, the play mode is automatically engaged.
Note:
If ID3 Tag information was entered with 2-byte characters, it may occur that the characters are not reproduced properly on the display.

MP3 is an audio compression method and classified into audio layer 3 of MPEG standards.
This audio compression method has penetrated
into PC users and become a standard format.
This MP3 features the original audio data compression to about 10 percent of its initial size
with a high sound quality. This means that about
10 music CDs can be recorded on a CD-R disc
or CD-RW disc to allow a long listening time
without having to change CDs.
Notes:
• This DVD video player cannot play back a disc recorded on a CD-RW unit.
• Some CDs recorded on CD-R mode may not be
