CARE AND MAINTENANCE
CLEANING THE CABINET
Wipe with a soft cloth. If the cabinet is very dirty, dampen the cloth with a weak
solution of neutral detergent and water, and then wipe clean.

work. Open the disc cover and clean the lens as follows:
DUST OR DRY PARTICLES
Using a camera lens brush/blower, blow on the lens
several times, then wipe it lightly with the brush to remove
dust. Then, blow on the lens once more.
FINGERPRINTS
To remove fingerprints from the lens, use a cotton swab
starting in the middle and working to the outside edge.
Use only very light pressure on the lens to avoid forcing
it out of alignment.
CLEANING THE DISC
When a disc becomes dirty, clean it with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the
center out.
NOTE:
Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners or
anti-static spray intended for analog discs.
