• Do not expose the disc to direct
sunlight or heat sources such as
hot air ducts, or leave it in a car
parked in direct sunlight as the
temperature may rise
considerably inside the car.
• After playing, store the disc in its
case.
• Clean the disc with a cleaning
cloth.
Wipe the disc from the centre
out.
• Do not use solvents such as
benzine, thinner, commercially
available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for vinyl LPs.
• If you have printed the disc’s
label, dry the label before
playing.
• Do not use the following discs:
– A disc that has a non-standard
shape (e.g., card, heart).
– A disc with a label or sticker
on it.
– A disc that has cellophane tape
or sticker adhesive on it.
Precautions
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid
fall into the cabinet, unplug the
player and have it checked by
qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On power sources
• The player is not disconnected
from the AC power source
(mains) as long as it is connected
to the wall outlet, even if the
player itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the
player for a long time, be sure to
disconnect the player from the
wall outlet. To disconnect the
AC power cord (mains lead),
grasp the plug itself; never pull
the cord.
On placement
• Place the player in a location
with adequate ventilation to
prevent heat build-up in the
player.
• Do not place the player on a soft
surface such as a rug.
• Do not place the player in a
location near heat sources, or in a
place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical
shock.
• Do not install this player in a
confined space, such as a
bookshelf or similar unit.
• Install the player so that the AC
power cord (mains lead) can be
unplugged from the wall socket
immediately in the event of
trouble.
• If the player is brought directly
from a cold to a warm location,
or is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the
lenses inside the player. Should
this occur, the player may not
operate properly. In this case,
remove the disc and leave the
player turned on for about half an
hour until the moisture
evaporates.
• When you move the player, take
out any discs. If you don’t, the
disc may be damaged.
On adjusting volume
Do not turn up the volume while
listening to a section with very low
level inputs or no audio signals. If
you do, the speakers may be
damaged when a peak level section
is played.
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet, panel, and
controls 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 alcohol or benzine.
On cleaning discs, disc/lens
cleaners
Do not use cleaning discs or disc/
lens cleaners (including wet or
spray types). These may cause the
apparatus to malfunction.

problems concerning your player,
please consult your nearest Sony
dealer.

repaired, repaired parts may be
collected for reuse or recycling
purposes.
