Precautions

Road safety

Do not use the monitor unit and headphones while driving, cycling, or operating any motorised vehicle. Doing so may create a traffic hazard and is illegal in some areas. It can also be potentially dangerous to play your headsets at high volume while walking, especially at pedestrian crossings. You should exercise extreme caution or discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.

On safety

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

• 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 adaptor, grasp the plug itself; never pull the cord.

• Do not touch the AC adaptor with wet hands. Doing so may cause shock hazard.

• Do not connect the AC adaptor to a traveller’s electric transformer, which may generate heat and cause a malfunction.

On temperature increases

Heat may build up inside the player during charging or if it is being used for a long time. This is not a malfunction.

On placement

• Do not place the player in a confined space such as a bookshelf or similar unit.

• Do not cover the ventilation of the player with newspapers, tablecloths, curtains, etc. And do not place the player on a soft surface, such as a rug.

• Do not place the player and adaptors in a location near heat sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, sand, moisture, rain, or mechanical shock, or in a car with its windows closed.

• Do not place the player in an inclined position. It is designed to be operated in a horizontal position only.

• Keep the player and discs away from equipment with strong magnet, such as microwave ovens, or large loudspeakers.

• Do not drop or apply strong shock.

Do not place heavy objects on the player and accessories.

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 for about half an hour until the moisture evaporates. Wipe off moisture attached to the LCD surface with tissue etc. Turn on the power again later.

• Keep the lens on the player clean and do not touch it. Touching the lens may damage the lens and cause the player to malfunction. Leave the disc lid closed except when you insert or remove discs.

On Liquid Crystal Display

• Although manufactured with high precision technology, the LCD may occasionally display dots of various colours. That is not a malfunction.

• Do not place or drop any object onto the

LCD surface. Also, do not apply pressure from hands or elbows.

• Do not damage the LCD surface with a sharp edged tool.

On rechargeable battery

• Because of the battery’s limited life, its capacity gradually deteriorates over time and repeated use. Exchange an old one with a new one when the battery holds about only half the normal period.

• To prevent battery deterioration, charge the battery at least once every half a year or every year.

• Certain countries may regulate disposal of the battery used to power this product.

Please consult with your local authority.

On AC adaptor and car battery adaptor

• Use the supplied adaptors for the player, as other adaptors may cause a malfunction.

• Do not disassemble or reverse-engineer.

• Do not touch the metal parts, as it may cause a short and damage the adaptors, especially if touched by other metal objects.

On adjusting volume

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

On headphones

• Preventing hearing damage: Avoid using headphones at high volumes. Hearing experts advice against continuous, loud, and extended play. If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce the volume or discontinue use.

• Showing consideration for others: Keep the volume at a moderate level. This will allow you to hear outside sounds and still be considerate to the people around you.

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.

• Wipe the LCD surface with the soft dry cloth lightly. To prevent dirt buildup, wipe it frequently. Do not wipe the LCD surface with a wet cloth. If water enters, a malfunction may result.

• If picture/sound is distorted, the lens may be covered with dust. In this case, use a commercially-available blower brush for camera lenses to clean the lens.

Avoid touching the lens directly during cleaning. Do not use cleaning discs or disc/lens cleaners.

Notes About the Discs

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

• Do not use the following discs:

– A disc that has a non-standard shape

(e.g., card, heart).

– A disc with a label or sticker on it.

– A disc that has cellophane tape or sticker adhesive on it.
