Troubleshooting
1 Make sure the power cord and
speaker cords are correctly and firmly
connected.
2 Find your problem in the checklist
below, and take the indicated
corrective action.
If the issue persists, contact your
nearest Sony dealer.
If the STANDBY indicator flashes
Immediately unplug the power cord,
and check the following items.
If your system has a voltage
selector, is the voltage selector set to
the correct voltage?
Are you using only the supplied
speakers?
Is anything blocking the ventilation
holes on the sides or back of the
system?
After the STANDBY indicator 
stops flashing, reconnect the power
cord, and turn on the system. If the
issue persists, contact your nearest
Sony dealer.
General
Sound comes from one channel,
or the left and right volumes are
unbalanced.
Place the speakers as symmetrically as
possible.
Connect only the supplied speakers.
Severe hum or noise.
Move the system away from sources of
noise.
Connect the system to a different wall
socket.
Install a noise filter (available
separately) to the power cord.
The remote does not function.
Remove any obstacles between the
remote and the remote sensor  on
the unit, and position the unit away
from fluorescent lights.
Point the remote at the system’s sensor.
Move the remote closer to the system.
The STANDBY indicator  remains lit
after unplugging the power cord.
The STANDBY indicator  may not
turn off immediately after unplugging
the power cord. This is not a
malfunction. The indicator will turn off
after about 40 seconds.
CD/MP3 player
The sound skips, or the disc will not
play.
Wipe the disc clean, and replace it.
Move the system to a location away
from vibration (for example, on top of
a stable stand).
Move the speakers away from the
system, or place them on separate
stands. At high volume, speaker
vibration may cause the sound to skip.
Play does not start from the first
track.
Press PLAY MODE  repeatedly until
both “PGM” and “SHUF” disappear to
return to normal play.

Precautions
27GB
Notes on discs
Before playing, wipe the disc with a
cleaning cloth from the center out to
the edge.
Do not clean discs with solvents, such
as benzine thinner, or commercially
available cleaners or anti-static spray
intended for vinyl LPs.
Do not expose discs to direct sunlight
or heat sources such as hot air ducts,
nor leave it in a car parked in direct
sunlight.
On safety
Completely disconnect the power
cord (mains lead) from the wall socket
(mains) if it is not going to be used
for an extended period of time. When
unplugging the unit, always grip the
plug. Never pull the cord itself.
Should any solid object or liquid get
into the system, unplug the system, and
have it checked by qualified personnel
before operating it again.
The AC power cord can be changed
only by a qualified service facility.
On placement
Do not place the system in an inclined
position or in locations that are
extremely hot, cold, dusty, dirty, or
humid or lacking adequate ventilation,
or subject to vibration, direct sunlight
or a bright light.
Be careful when placing the unit
or speakers on surfaces that have
been specially treated (for example,
with wax, oil, polish) as staining or
discoloration of the surface may result.
If the system is brought directly
from a cold to a warm location or is
placed in a very damp room, moisture
may condense on the lens inside the
CD player, and cause the system to
malfunction. In this situation, remove
the disc, and leave the system turned
on for about an hour until the moisture
evaporates.
On heat buildup
Heat buildup on the unit during
operation is normal and is not cause
for alarm.
Do not touch the cabinet if it has been
used continuously at a high volume
because the cabinet may have become
hot.
Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.
On the speaker system
This speaker system is not magnetically
shielded, and the picture on nearby TV
sets may become magnetically distorted.
In this situation, turn off the TV, wait
15 to 30 minutes, and turn it back on.
If there is no improvement, move the
speakers far away from the TV.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean this system 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
thinner, benzine, or alcohol.

To prevent a tape from being
accidentally recorded over
Break off the cassette’s overwrite
protection tab from side A or B as
illustrated.
Break off
the cassette
tab
To later reuse the tape for recording,
cover the broken tab with adhesive tape.
Cleaning the tape heads
Use dry- or wet-type cleaning cassette
(available separately) after every 10 hours
of use, before you start an important
recording, or after playing an old tape.
Failure to clean the tape heads can cause
degraded sound quality or an inability
of the unit to record or play tapes. For
details, refer to the instructions of the
cleaning cassette.
