Troubleshooting
General
Discs that this unit CAN play
• Audio CD
• CD-R/CD-RW (CD-DA*/MP3 files)
The power does not turn on.
*CD-DA is the abbreviation for Compact Disc Digital Audio. It is a
recording standard used for Audio CDs.
Discs that this unit CANNOT play
• CD-R/CD-RW other than those recorded in music CD
format or MP3 format conforming to ISO9660 Level
1/Level 2 or Joliet
• CD-R/CD-RW of poor recording quality, CD-R/CD-RW
that has scratches or is dirty, or CD-R/CD-RW recorded
with an incompatible recording device
• CD-R/CD-RW which is finalized incorrectly
• Before playing, clean the CD
with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the
CD from the center out. If there
is a scratch, dirt or fingerprints
on the CD, it may cause tracking
error.
• Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner,
commercially available cleaners or anti-static spray
intended for vinyl LPs.
• Do not expose the CD to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, or leave it in a
car parked in direct sunlight as there can be a
considerable rise in temperature inside the car.
• Do not stick paper or a sticker on the CD, or scratch
the surface of the CD.
• After playing, store the CD in its case.
On safety
• As the laser beam used in the CD player section is
harmful to the eyes, do not attempt to disassemble
the casing. Refer servicing to qualified personnel
only.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the unit,
unplug the unit, and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
• Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart, square,
star) cannot be played on this unit. Attempting to
do so may damage the unit. Do not use such discs.

The sound drops out.
Reduce the volume.
Clean the CD, or replace it if the CD is badly
damaged.
Place the unit in a location free from vibration.
Clean the lens with a commercially available blower.
The sound may drop out or noise may be heard
when using a poor quality CD-R/CD-RW or if there is
a problem with the recording device or application
software.


Starting playback takes more time than usual.

The following discs take a longer time to start
playback.
–a disc recorded with a complicated tree structure.
–a disc that has not been finalized (a disc to which
data can be added).
–a disc that has many folders or non-MP3 files.
Radio
Reception is poor.
On placement
• Do not leave the unit in a location near heat sources,
in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust
or mechanical shock, or in a car subject to the direct
rays of the sun.
• Do not place the unit on an inclined or unstable
place.
• Do not place anything within 10 mm of the side
of the cabinet. The ventilation holes must be
unobstructed for the unit to operate properly and
prolong the life of its components.
• Since a strong magnet is used for the speakers,
keep personal credit cards using magnetic coding
or spring-wound watches away from the unit to
prevent possible damage from the magnet.
On operation
• If the unit 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
section. Should this occur, the unit will not operate
properly. In this case, remove the CD and wait about
an hour for the moisture to evaporate.
• The design of the carrying handle prohibits you from
lifting it forcibly while the CD compartment is open.
