Operating precautions
Operating precautions
<Your CD5433 will perform well over a long period of time through correct
handling and care.>
Notes on operation
• For your safety, play only at volume levels that allow outside sounds to be
heard.
• We recommend using with this player a disc with
the logo shown to the left.
• You can play music CDs(CD-R/CD-RW) on this
player. Be sure to use discs that have been
properly processed.
Depending on the editing equipment used, some
discs may not play properly.
• Do not insert anything other than a CD into the
disc slot.
Do not insert any foreign objects, such as coins or
credit cards, into the disc slot. Be especially
watchful of children’s mischief in this regard.
• Avoid severe mechanical shock.
When the player is subjected to severe vibration
while traveling over a rough surface, playback
may be intermittent. When a situation like this
occurs, resume playback after returning to a
smoother road.
• About dew condensation.
In cold or rainy weather, just as the interior glass
surface gets fogged, dew (water condensation)
may also settle on the deck. When this occurs,
disc playback may become intermittent or
impossible. Dehumidify the air in the vehicle for a
while before resuming playback.
• Cleaning the disc slot.
The disc slot tends to get dusty. Clean it
occasionally to prevent accumulated dust from
scratching the discs.
10
Operating precautions
About compact discs
• The signal recorded on a compact disc is read by a laser beam, so
nothing touches the disc surface. A scratch on the recorded surface or a
badly warped disc may cause deteriorated sound quality or intermittent
playback. Observe the following precautions to ensure high quality sound
performance:
• Do not leave an ejected disc in the disc slot
for very long; the disc may warp. Discs
should be stored in their cases and kept
away from high temperature and humidity.
• Do not stick a piece of paper or tape on, nor
write on or scratch either side of a disc.
• Discs spin at a high speed inside the deck.
Keep cracked or warped discs out of the
player to avoid damaging it.
• Avoid touching the recorded surface when
handling a disc; handle discs by their edges.
11
Operating precautions
About brand new CDs
• 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 deck.
Flakes from the rough edges
may also stick to the recorded
surface and interfere with
playback.
About CD accessories
• 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.
Rough Edges
Ballpoint
pen
Rough
Edges
Flakes
• 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 came off in the disc
mechanism.
Recorded surface
12
Operating precautions
About borrowed CDs
• Do not use a CD with glue or
remnants of adhesive tape or
labels. They may cause the CD
to get stuck inside or damage
the deck.
About irregularly-shaped CDs
• Specially-shaped CDs, like
heart-shaped or octagonal CDs,
cannot be played. Do not
attempt to play them, even with
an adapter, since they may
damage the player.
How to remove CDs
• When removing the ejected disc,
pull it straight out along the slot.
Pressing downward in the
process may scratch the
recorded surface of the disc.

About cleaning a CD
• 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.

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 deck 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: 22.05, 44.1 (kHz)
• Supported bit rate: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128 (kbps)
* Does not support free format.
• Supported channel modes: stereo, joint stereo, 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 deck supports ID3v.1.0 and ID3v.1.1 tags.
43
How to operate the MP3 player
Media
Media capable of playing MP3 includes CD-ROM and CD-R 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 characters for folder names/file names: 15
• Allowable characters for folder names/file names: A~Z, 0~9, _ (underscore)
• Number of files possible on a single disc:
65535*1

How to operate the MP3 player
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 deck 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 disc 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 format.
Playing MP3
When a disc with recorded MP3 files is inserted, the deck first checks all the
files on the disc. Checking of the files will be completed within 10 seconds
of disc insertion, and the first MP3 file will begin playing. If the disc check is
not completed within 10 seconds, the player will go into standby mode. No
sound is output while the deck 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 deck.
Display order of MP3 file/folder names
Names of MP3 folders and files within the same level are displayed in the
following order.
1. MP3 folders displayed first, by ascending order of numbers, letters.
2. Files displayed next, by ascending order of numbers, letters.

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.
54
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.

small and light. Dropping or striking it hard may damage it,
wear out the battery or cause a malfunction.
• Keep the remote control free of moisture, dust and water. Do
not subject it to shock.
• Do not place the remote control unit where it will get hot, such
as on the dashboard or near a heater vent. Allowing the
remote control unit to overheat may warp its case or cause
other problems.
• Do not operate the remote control unit while driving because
doing so could cause an accident.
• When using the remote control, point it directly at the remote
control light receptor.
• The light receptor may not operate correctly if it is exposed to
bright light such as direct sunlight.
• Be sure to press the [PWR] button on the main unit for more
than two seconds to shut it down before leaving the car, or the
car battery may be run down. When the main unit is shut down,
the remote control will not work.
• Remove the batteries from the remote control unit whenever it
is not to be used for a long time.
Cleaning the remote control
• Use a dry cloth to keep the unit clean. If the remote control unit
gets extremely dirty, clean it with a cloth moistened in dilute
liquid detergent. Do not use alcohol or thinner; these
compounds may damage the finish.
• In no event should benzine or thinner be used. These
substances will damage the case or finish.
