Operating precautions
Operating precautions
Warning
Be very careful and pay full attention to safety when operating the audio
controls while driving, otherwise accidents may occur.
Notes on using the system
• Some functions cannot be used while driving. These
functions will appear in lighter color than normal to indicate
that they cannot be used.
• For safety, keep the volume at a low enough level so that
sounds outside the vehicle can still be heard while driving.
• Never continue to use the system if it is malfunctioning in
any way.
If smoke, abnormal noises or abnormal odors are noticed,
turn off the power immediately.
• The driver should avoid operating the system as much as
possible while driving.
• Do not apply excessive force to the monitor, otherwise it
may become damaged.
• Do not place items such as cups or cans on top of the
monitor, and do not leave the monitor tilted down when not
in use, otherwise damage may occur.
• Never insert foreign objects such as coins, plastic cards
into the disc insertion slot. The only objects that should be
inserted into this slot are the appropriate CDs, DVDs, and
Memory Sticks. Be particularly careful not to let children
interfere with the system.
11
Operating precautions
• Be sure to keep discs and Memory Sticks horizontal when
removing them from the unit.
Do not pull them up forcibly or press down on them
strongly while removing them, otherwise discs may
become scratched and the sound may skip, and Memory
Sticks may also become damaged.
• The temperature inside the vehicle can increase during hot
weather. Wait for the temperature inside the vehicle to drop
before using the unit.
• Avoid humid environments. If liquid gets inside the unit or
onto it, malfunctions or damage may occur. Be particularly
careful of items such as drinks that have been placed in
drink holders that are near the unit.
• The components inside of the unit have been assembled
with high precision, and they should not be disassembled
or modified. If a problem occurs with the unit, contact the
place of purchase.
• Clean the unit by wiping it with a soft, dry cloth. If it is
particularly dirty, use a cloth that is lightly moistened with
alcohol.
12
Operating precautions
About discs
TEXT
• Water droplets can form on the inside of the unit during
cold or rainy weather in the same way car windows can fog
up. (This is condensation.) When this happens, the audio
can jump and playback can stop, so ventilate or
dehumidify the vehicle for a short time before operating the
equipment.
• To safeguard the components of the player, the unit will
automatically stop when a malfunction occurs. If the player
will not operate even when messages displayed on the
screen are followed, consult with your equipment retailer
because it is possible that the unit has been damaged.
• It is possible that the sound will skip if the vehicle
experiences violent motion on rough roads.
• It is possible that a copy protected CD will not play on the
unit.
• It is possible that a CD-R (CD-Recordable) or CD-RW (CDReWritable) disc will not play on the unit due to special
disc characteristics, scratches, dirt or deterioration caused
by long storage in the vehicle. In addition, a CD-R or CDRW disc written with CD-R, CD-RW or UDF format that has
not been finalized will not play on the unit.
• An audio disc or DVD video disc bearing one the marks on
the left can be played.
13
Operating precautions
• A DVD disc bearing one of the marks at left for Dolby
Digital (5.1 ch) or DTS (5.1 ch) *1 or can also be played.
*2
*1 Center speaker and subwoofers (sold separately) are required for playing Dolby Digital
(5.1 ch) or DTS (5.1 ch).
*3
*2 Manufactured in compliance with rights granted from Dolby Laboratories. Dolby and the
double D mark are trademarks of Dolby Laboratories.
*3 DTS is a trademark of Digital Theater System, Inc.
• Place discs in their protective cases and store in a location
out of direct sunlight, high temperature and high humidity.
• Do not place adhesive materials on either the recorded
side or label side of a disc, and do not write on a disc or
scratch it.
• Do not use CD discs with attached cellophane tape, rental
CD discs with glue protruding from labels or discs with the
residue of peeled adhesives. Using discs with those
conditions can prevent the player from properly opening
and closing as well as cause other damage.
• Discs spin at high speed inside the unit. Do not use a
cracked CD disc because it can cause the disc to damage
the CD unit.
• Do not touch the recorded side of a disc when handling it.
14
Operating precautions
Rough Edges
Ballpoint
pen
• You may notice that some brand new discs are rough
around the center hole or outside edge.
Remove the rough edges with the side of a ballpoint pen,
etc. Rough edges may prevent proper loading in the unit.
Flakes from the rough edges may also stick to the
recorded surface and interfere with playback.
Rough Edges
Flakes
Recorded surface
• Do not use accessories
(stabilizers, protective seals, laser lens cleaners, etc.) sold
for "improving sound performance" or "protecting CDs." The
changes in CD thickness or outside dimensions made by
these accessories may cause problems in the player.
• Please be sure NOT to attach any ring-shape protector (or
other accessory) to your discs. Those protectors are
commercially available and said to protect disc and to
improve sound quality (and antivibration effect), but they
can do more harm than good in regular uses. The most
common problems are insert/Eject related problems and
"No playback" problems due to the protector ring that come
off in the disc mechanism.
• Specially-shaped or octagonal CDs, like heart-shaped
cannot be played. Do not attempt to play them, even with
an adapter, since they may damage the player.
• The unit can play 8 cm CDs without the need for an
adapter.
8cm CD
8cm CD
Adapter
• Do not play back 8 cm CDs with a single adapter attached,
as malfunctions may occur if such discs are used.
15
Operating precautions
About cleaning a disc
• Use a commercially available compact disc cleaner to
clean a CD, wiping lightly from the center to the edge.
• Do not use benzine, thinner, LP record spray or other
cleaners on CDs. They may damage a CD's finish.
Th
inn
er
• The disc slot tends to get dusty. Clean it occasionally to
prevent accumulated dust from scratching the discs.
16
Operating precautions
About Memory Sticks
• Do not store Memory Sticks in places that are subject to
static electricity and electrical interference, otherwise the
data they contain may become corrupted.
• In order to protect the player, the player's functions will be
stopped automatically if a problem occurs. If the player
cannot be operated even after following the instructions
that appear on the screen, the unit is malfunctioning, and
you should ask the place of purchase for further advice.
• If using a Memory Stick Duo, you will need to use it with a
Memory Stick Duo adapter.
• Only Memory Sticks with a capacity of up to 128 MB can
be used in the unit.
• Memory Stick PRO types of Memory Stick cannot be used.
• After playing back a MG Memory Stick and after
transferring data to a MG Memory Stick or other Memory
Stick, remove the Memory Stick immediately.
• MG Memory Sticks bearing one of the marks at the left can
be used.
• Memory Sticks bearing one of the marks at the left can be
used for loading images into the unit and for saving
captured images.
MagicGate Memory Stick
and Memory Stick
are trademarks of
Sony Corporation.
• If the write protection switch on a MG Memory Stick or
Memory Stick is at the lock position, audio recordings and
other data cannot be saved onto it.
• Do not remove a MG Memory Stick while it is being
accessed for playback or recording, otherwise the data on
the MG Memory Stick may become corrupted. If the data
becomes corrupted, it can no longer be retrieved.
• Formatting (initializing) MG Memory Sticks requires special
equipment. If a MG Memory Stick is formatted using some
other type of equipment, you will not be able to play it back
on this unit.
• It may not be possible to use MG Memory Sticks that have
just been purchased. If this happens, use the unit to format
the MG Memory Stick. Refer to "Formatting Memory Stick
(quick format)" on page 89 for instructions on formatting
MG Memory Sticks.
• Some recordings and other data may not be played back
or displayed, depending on the device that was used to
save the data.
17
Operating precautions
• Do not use Memory Sticks with labels that are peeling off or
that have name tags (labels) attached.
• Store Memory Sticks in places away from direct sunlight
and high humidity, otherwise the Memory Sticks may
become unusable.
• Place Memory Sticks in their protective cases during
transportation and storage.
• Do not touch the terminals with your hands or with metallic
objects.
About cleaning Memory Sticks
• In order to maintain good audio performance from Memory
Sticks, periodically wipe the cartridge clean of any dust
and other contamination with a dry cloth.
About cleaning unit
• Use a soft cloth (such as a silicon cloth) to clean the unit.
If it is particularly dirty, use a cloth that is lightly moistened with a weak solution of
household detergent.
Be particularly careful when wiping the touch panel, as it scratches easily.
If using a chemically-treated cloth, follow the instructions provided with the cloth.
• Do not use volatile solvents such as acetone or thinner, as they can cause discoloration
and peeling of the unit's finish.

FM reception characteristics
In general, FM has much better tonal quality than AM. However, FM and FM
stereo reception encounter several characteristic problems not encountered
with AM. FM is more difficult to receive than AM in a moving vehicle. The
following are explanatory notes on what to expect from FM reception and on
how to get satisfactory performance.
FM RECEPTION DIFFERS FROM AM
A characteristic of transmitted signals is that lower frequencies travel
further. FM frequencies are much higher than AM’s (similar to a ray of
light): they won’t bend but they will reflect. Often, they will be
interrupted by tall buildings, mountains, etc., taking direct and indirect
paths to your vehicle’s antenna. The distance at which FM stations can
be received satisfactorily is usually not nearly as far as that which AM
stations can be received.
AM Radio Waves
Ionosphere
FM Radio Waves
Ionosphere
FADING OUT
In weak signal or “fringe” reception areas, FM stations may fade out
completely, or fade in and out. When driving in weak signal areas, such
as near hills, through valleys or tunnels, among tall buildings, etc., you
may encounter unusual noise interference. THIS IS NOT A TUNER
PROBLEM. In this case, you can only wait until you are in a better
reception area, tune to a stronger station, or reduce the treble level.
71
How to operate the tuner
RECEPTION AREA OF FM BROADCASTS
A home receiver can catch weak FM stereo signals through the use of a
tall, directional or ultra-sensitive antenna. In a moving vehicle, the area
for good reception is limited because of varying conditions
encountered while driving, including the types and heights of broadcast
antenna structures, signal strength, engine noise, etc. For best
reception with manual antenna, extend the antenna mast as far as
possible.
Transmitting Antenna 100 Meters High
Effective Radiation Power 1kW
FM Stereo Auto Radio 20 km
FM Monaural Auto Radio 50 km
Home FM Stereo Receiver 100 km
Reception quality varies depending on the power of the FM
station, natural and artificial barriers,weather conditions, etc.
MULTIPATH
The reflection characteristics of FM waves cause another problem
called multipath–FM wave signals reflecting off of buildings, mountains,
etc. When the antenna receives direct and reflected waves at the same
time, distortion of sound in the treble range often occurs, such as static
or harsh-sounding voices. THIS IS NOT A TUNER PROBLEM. Only
moving to another area with a clearer signal path can remedy the
situation.

About MP3
ATTENTION
The making of MP3 files by recording from sources such as broadcasts,
records, recordings, videos and live performances without permission
from the copyright holder for uses other than personal enjoyment is
prohibited.
What is MP3?
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer III) is a standard format for audio compression
technology. By using MP3, a file can be compressed to one-tenth the
size of the original.
This unit has limitations on MP3 file standards and recorded media and
formats that can be used.
Playable MP3 file standards
• Supported standards: MPEG-1 Audio Layer III
MPEG-2 Audio Layer III
• Supported sampling frequencies: 32, 44.1, 48 (kHz)
• Supported bit rate: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 144,
160, 192, 224, 256, 320 (kbps)
*Supports VBR.
* Does not support free format.
* Bit rates vary for MPEG-1 and MPEG-2.
• Supported channel modes: stereo, joint stereo, dual channel,
monaural
ID3 tags
MP3 files have an "ID3 Tag" that allows input of information so that data
such as song title and artist can be saved.
This unit supports ID3v.1.0 and ID3v.1.1 tags.
78
How to operate the MP3 player
Media
Media capable of playing MP3 includes CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW
discs. Compared to CD-ROM media commonly used for music discs,
CD-R discs are fragile in high temperature/high humidity environments
and one section of the CD-R may become incapable of playback.
Fingerprints or scratches on the disc may prevent playback or cause
skipping during playback. Sections of a CD-R may deteriorate if left
inside a vehicle for long periods of time. It is also recommended that
CD-R discs be kept in a light-blocking case because the discs are
vulnerable to ultra-violet light.
Format of discs
The format of discs to be used must be ISO9660 Level 1 or Level 2.
Control items for this standard are as follows:
• Maximum directory layers:
8 layers
• Maximum characters for folder names/file names: 31 (including "."
and 3 letter file
extension)
• Allowable characters for folder names/file names: A~Z, 0~9,
_ (underscore)
• Number of files/folders possible on a single disc: 250

File names
Only files with the MP3 file extension ".mp3" can be recognized as MP3
and played. Be sure to save MP3 files with the ".mp3" file extension. The
"MP" letters of the file extension will be recognized whether entered as
uppercase letters or lowercase letters.
Caution
If the ".mp3" file extension is attached to a file other than an MP3 file, that
file will be mistakenly recognized by the unit as an MP3 file and played,
resulting in loud noise output that can damage the speakers. Be sure to
avoid attaching the ".mp3" file extension to files that are not MP3 files.
Multi-sessions
Multi-sessions are supported, and playing of CD-R and CD-RW discs
with annotated MP3 files is possible. However, when "Track at once"
has been written, close the session or process the warning message.
Standardize the format of each session without changing the format.
Playing MP3
When a disc with recorded MP3 files is inserted, the unit first checks all
the files on the disc. No sound is output while the unit is checking the
files on the disc. It is recommended that the disc be recorded without
files other than MP3 files and without unnecessary folders in order to
speed up the checking of disc files by the unit.
MP3 playing time display
It is possible that playing time will not be correct, depending on the
writing condition of the MP3 file.
* It is possible that playing time will not be correct when VBR Fast
Up/Down is operated.
Display order of MP3 file/folder names
Names of MP3 folders and files within the same level are displayed in
