other hazards. Refer all
servicing to qualified service
personnel.
25. Keeping of Coin-shaped Batteries
After unpacking coinshaped batteries, store
them in poly bags, etc.
separately one by one
when unused. If you leave
them unwrapped, they
may be short-circuited by
contact with metal objects,
resulting in battery leakage, heat or bursting.
These may cause burns or injury.
The batteries must be completely discharged
when they are deposited in collection containers
for old batteries in shops and at public collection
sites. If a charge remains, countermeasures to
prevent short circuits must be taken.

following the operating instructions. Adjust
only those controls that are covered by the
operating instructions as an improper
adjustment of other controls may result in
damage and will often require extensive
work by a qualified technician to restore the
product to its normal operation.
e) If the product has been dropped or damaged
in any way.
f) When the product exhibits a distinct change
in performance - this indicates a need for
service.

28. Replacement Parts
When replacement parts are required, be sure
the service technician has used replacement
parts specified by the manufacturer or have the
same characteristics as the original part.
Unauthorized substitution may result in fire,
electric shock, or other hazards.
Precautions
Do not shock the LCD panel. It may cause unit
damage and malfunction.
When shipping the player, the original shipping carton
and packing materials come in handy. For maximum
protection, repack the unit as it was originally
packaged at the factory.
Do not use volatile liquids, such as insect spray, near
the player. Do not leave rubber or plastic products in
contact with the player for a long time. They will leave
marks on the finish.
The top and rear panels of the player may become
warm after a long period of use. This is not a
malfunction.
When the player is not in use, be sure to remove the
disc and turn off the power.
If you do not use the player for a long period, the unit
may not function properly in the future. Turn on and
use the player occasionally.
Notes on locating
When you place this player near a TV, radio, or VCR,
the playback picture may become poor and the sound
may be distorted. In this case, move the player away
from the TV, radio, or VCR.
Notes on moisture condensation
Moisture condensation damages the player. Please
read the following carefully.
Moisture condensation occurs, for example, when you
pour a cold drink into a glass on a warm day. Drops of
water form on the outside of the glass. In the same way,
moisture may condense on the optical pick-up lens
inside this unit, one of the most crucial internal parts of
the player.

lens
Moisture condensation occurs during the
following cases.
When you bring the player directly from a cold place
to a warm place.
When you use the player in a room where you just
turned on the heater, or a place where the cold wind
from the air conditioner directly hits the unit.
In summer, when you use the player in a hot and
humid place just after you move the unit from an air
conditioned room.
When you use the player in a humid place.
Notes on cleaning
Use a soft, dry cloth for cleaning.
For stubborn dirt, soak the cloth in a weak detergent
solution, wring well and wipe. Use a dry cloth to wipe
it dry.
Do not use any type of solvent, such as thinner and
benzine, as they may damage the surface of the
player.
If you use a chemical saturated cloth to clean the unit,
follow that product’s instructions.
When cleaning the LCD panel, use a soft, dry cloth.
To obtain a clear picture
The player is a high technology, precision device. If the
optical pick-up lens and disc drive parts are dirty or worn
down, the picture quality becomes poor. To obtain a
clear picture, we recommend regular inspection and
maintenance (cleaning or parts replacement) every
1,000 hours of use depending on the operating
environment. For details, contact your nearest dealer.
Introduction
Notes on handling
It’s too
warm!
Do not use the player when moisture
condensation may occur.
If you use the player in such a situation, it may
damage discs and internal parts. Remove the disc,
connect the power cord of the player to the wall
outlet, turn on the player, and leave it for two or three
hours. After two or three hours, the player will have
warmed up and evaporated any moisture. Keep the
player connected to the wall outlet and moisture
condensation will seldom occur.
