• This unit is designed to play back discs that
conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard.
DualDiscs and some of the music discs encoded
with copyright protection technologies do not
conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard,
therefore, these discs may not be playable by this
unit.
• Discs that this unit CANNOT play
– Discs with labels, stickers, or sticky tape or
paper attached. Doing so may cause a
malfunction, or may ruin the disc.
– Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart,

Note on playback operations of DVDs
and VCDs
Notes on LCD panel
Some playback operations of DVDs and VCDs may
be intentionally set by software producers. Since
this unit plays DVDs and VCDs according to the
disc contents the software producers designed, some
playback features may not be available. Also, refer
to the instructions supplied with the DVDs or
VCDs.
• Do not press on the LCD panel as doing so can
distort the picture or cause a malfunction (i.e., the
picture may become unclear, or the LCD panel
may be damaged).

not damaged, and the picture will become clear
after the temperature in your car becomes normal.
• Some stationary blue, red or green dots may
appear on the monitor. These are called “bright
spots,” and can happen with any LCD. The LCD
panel is precision-manufactured with more than
99.99 % of its segments functional. However, it is
possible that a small percentage (typically 0.01 %)
of the segments may not light up properly. This
