Precautions

On safety

As the laser beam used in this unit is harmful to the eyes, do not attempt to disassemble the cabinet. Refer servicing to qualified personnel only.

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

Before operating the player, check that the operating voltage of the player is identical with your local power supply. The operating voltage is indicated on the nameplate at the rear of the player.

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.

Should the AC power cord (mains lead) need to be changed, have it done at a qualified service shop only.

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 that might block the ventilation holes on the bottom.

Do not place the player in a location near heat sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust or mechanical shock.

On operation

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 an hour until the moisture evaporates.

On adjusting volume

Do not turn up the volume while listening to a portion with very low level inputs or no audio signals. If you do, the speakers may be damaged when a peak level portion 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.

If you have any questions or problems concerning your player, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Notes on CDs

On handling CDs

To keep the disc clean, handle the disc by its edge. Do not touch the surface.

Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.

Not this way

Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car parked in direct sunlight as there can be considerable rise in temperature inside the car.

Do not use any commercially available stabilizer and/or disc protector. If you do, the disc and the player may be damaged.

After playing, store the disc in its case.

On cleaning

Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out.

Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners or anti-static spray intended for vinyl

LPs.
