Precautions

On safety

• Completely disconnect the power cord (mains lead) from the wall outlet (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.

• (For customers in United States only)

One blade of the plug is wider than other for the purpose of safety and will fit to the wall outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, contact your dealer.

• AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified service shop.

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 system on surfaces that have been specially treated (for example, 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 unit, and cause the system to malfunction. In this situation, leave the system turned off until the moisture evaporates.

On heat buildup

• Heat buildup on the unit during operation is normal and is not a 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

The built-in 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 system 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.

On Bluetooth communication

Bluetooth devices should be used within approximately 10 meters (33 feet)

(unobstructed distance) of each other. The effective communication range may become shorter under the following conditions.

– When a person, metal object, wall or other obstruction is between the devices with a

Bluetooth connection

– Locations where a wireless LAN is installed

– Around microwave ovens that are in use

– Locations where other electromagnetic waves occur

Bluetooth devices and wireless LAN (IEEE

802.11b/g) use the same frequency band

(2.4 GHz). When using your Bluetooth device near a device with wireless LAN capability, electromagnetic interference may occur. This could result in lower data transfer rates, noise, or inability to connect. If this happens, try the following remedies:

– Try connecting this system and Bluetooth device when you are at least 10 meters

(33 feet) away from the wireless LAN equipment.

– Turn off the power to the wireless LAN equipment when using your Bluetooth device within 10 meters (33 feet).

• The radio waves broadcast by this system may interfere with the operation of some medical devices. Since this interference may result in malfunction, always turn off the power on this system and Bluetooth device in the following locations:

– In hospitals, on trains, in airplanes, at gas stations, and any place where flammable gasses may be present

– Near automatic doors or fire alarms

• This system supports security functions that comply with the Bluetooth specification as a means of ensuring security during communication using Bluetooth technology.

However, this security may be insufficient depending on the setting contents and other factors, so always be careful when performing communication using Bluetooth technology.

• Sony cannot be held liable in any way for damages or other loss resulting from information leaks during communication using Bluetooth technology.

Bluetooth communication is not necessarily guaranteed with all Bluetooth devices that have the same profile as this system.

Bluetooth devices connected with this system must comply with the Bluetooth specification prescribed by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc., and must be certified to comply. However, even when a device complies with the Bluetooth specification, there may be cases where the characteristics or specifications of the

Bluetooth device make it impossible to connect, or may result in different control methods, display or operation.

• Noise may occur or the audio may cut off depending on the Bluetooth device connected with this system, the communications environment, or surrounding conditions.
