Before using the main unit
• Be very careful and pay full attention to safety when
operating the audio controls while driving, otherwise
accidents may occur. Also be sure to set volume so that
you can still adequately hear sounds outside the vehicle.
Improper use can contribute to a traffic accident.
• Never continue to use the system if it is malfunctioning in
any way. If smoke, abnormal noises or abnormal odors
are noticed, turn off the power immediately.
Immediately turn off audio in such situations.
• Exercise caution as to the temperature inside the vehicle.
The temperature inside the vehicle can increase during
hot weather. Wait for the temperature inside the vehicle to
drop before using the unit.
Damage could result.
• Do not disassemble or modify the main unit.
The main unit has a precisely designed structure, so
consult your retailer in the event of any unsatisfactory
• Do not apply excessive force to the monitor.
Damage could result.
• Do not place items such as cups or cans on top of the

not in use.
Damage could result.
• Do not insert any objects other than discs into the disc
Damage could result.
• Be careful not to get fingers or other objects behind

Interference can cause an injury or damage the main unit.
• When removing a disc from the main unit, remove it in the
horizontally level direction.
Do not pull them up forcibly or press down on them
strongly while removing them.
Improper removal can scratch the disc, cause the main
unit to make noise or result in other damage.
Before using the main unit
About discs
• Water droplets can form on the inside of the main unit during cold or rainy
weather in the same way car windows can fog up. (This is condensation.) When
this happens, the audio can jump and playback can stop, so ventilate or
dehumidify the vehicle for a short time before operating the equipment.
• To safeguard the components of the player, the unit will automatically stop when
a malfunction occurs. The player will not operate even when messages
displayed on the screen are followed, consult with your equipment retailer
because it is possible that the unit has been damaged.
• It is possible that the sound will skip if the vehicle experiences violent motion on
rough roads.
About playable discs
• An audio disc or DVD video disc bearing one of the marks below can be played.
When using DVD-R/RW (DVD-Recordable/ReWritable) and DVD+R/RW
(DVD+Recordable/ReWritable) discs, note that only those whose contents were
recorded in the video mode can be played. Discs whose contents were
recorded in the video recording (VR) mode cannot be played.
• Discs that are compatible with Dolby Digital and bear the indication below can
be used.
Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories, Inc. "Dolby" and the double-D symbol are
trademarks of Dolby Laboratories.
• It is possible that a CD-R (CD-Recordable) or CD-RW (CD-ReWritable) disc will
not play on the main unit due to the circumstances of the recording, special disc
characteristics, scratches, dirt or deterioration caused by long storage in the
vehicle. In addition, a CD-R or CD-RW disc written with CD-R, CD-RW or UDF
format that has not been finalized will not play on the main unit.
• It is possible that a DVD-R/RW (DVD-Recordable/ReWritable) or DVD+R/RW
(DVD+Recordable/ReWritable) disc will not play on the main unit due to the
circumstances of the recording, special disc characteristics, scratches, dirt or
deterioration caused by long storage in the vehicle. DVD-R/RW or DVD+R/RW
discs that have not been finalized will not play on the main unit. It may not be
possible to play a disc that has been recorded on a personal computer,
depending on the application setting and the environment.
• The CD-TEXT function can be used only with the CD-TEXT-compatible compact
discs available on the market. If it is used with CD-R or CD-RW discs,
characters may not be displayed normally.
• Do not use discs with transparent or semi-transparent portions within the
recording area, or C-thru discs, since they may not be accepted and ejected
properly and may not play properly.
About handling discs
• Be sure to store discs in their cases and keep them out of
direct sunlight. Discs can warp and become unusable.
• Do not apply paper-based tape to either the recording
side or label side of a disc. Damage could result.
• Do not use discs on which there are cracks or large
warps. Damage could result.
• Do not touch the recorded side of a disc when handling it.
(This is the side with the rainbow-colored reflection.) The
disc may become dirty and that could cause the sound to
• Using a disc that has become dirty can scratch the disc
and cause the sound to skip. Use a commercially
available compact disc cleaner to clean a CD, wiping
lightly from the center to the edge.
About new discs
Rough Edges
Ballpoint pen
• You may notice that some brand new discs are rough
around the center hole or outside edge. Remove the
rough edges with the side of a ballpoint pen, etc. Flakes
from the rough edges may stick to the recorded surface
and interfere with playback.
Before using the main unit
About rental discs
Cellophane tape
Recorded surface
• Do not use CD discs with attached cellophane tape,
rental CD discs with glue protruding from labels or discs
with the residue of peeled adhesives. Using discs with
those conditions can prevent the player from properly
opening and closing as well as cause other damage.
About specially shaped discs
• Specially-shaped or octagonal CDs, like heart-shaped
cannot be played. Do not attempt to play them, even with
an adapter, since they may damage the player.
• Please do not use a commercially available lens cleaner
because it may cause damage to the pickup of the player.
About disc accessories
• Do not use accessories (stabilizers, protective seals,
laser lens cleaners, etc.) sold for "improving sound
performance" or "protecting CDs." The changes in CD
thickness or outside dimensions made by these
accessories may cause problems in the player.
CD ring
• Please be sure NOT to attach any ring-shape protector (or
other accessory) to your discs. Those protectors are
commercially available and said to protect discs and to
improve sound quality (and antivibration effect), but they
can do more harm than good in regular uses. The most
common problems are Insert/Eject related problems and
"No playback" problems due to the protector ring that may
have come off in the disc mechanism.
About TV
• When connection with the battery is cut due to changing it, changing fuses,
etc.,all preset channels will be erased.
• It may be difficult for the TV to maintain optimal reception due to variation
insignal strength or interference from other objects. The main causes of
interference are listed below.
• Visual or audio static may result when in close proximity to overhead train wires,
high-tension wires, traffic signals, neon signs, etc.
·Depending on the signal, buildings and mountains may adversely affect reception.
·Visual or audio static may result when in close proximity to radio broadcasting
or ham radio antennas.
·Signal reception will become extremely weak when driving through a tunnel.
·Signal reception will become weak when traveling at a great distance from the
broadcasting station.
·In some areas, visual or audio static may result when in close proximity to TV or
radio towers. This is due to the influence of electro-magnetic waves outside of
the reception range.
About the LCD panel
• The LCD panel can appear to be white or black when seen from certain angles.
• The screen will be difficult to read when external light such as sunlight falls on
the display.
