Precautions

When carrying the unit

To avoid damaging the disc mechanism, perform the following procedure before carrying the unit.

Use the keys on the touch panel of the unit to perform this operation.

1

Press

 to turn on the system.

MHC-V77DW.GB.4-596-07614(1)

2

Touch FUNCTION repeatedly to select “DVD/CD”.

3

Remove the disc.

Touch

 to open and close the disc tray.

Wait until “NO DISC” appears on the display.

4

Unplug the AC power cord (mains lead).

Notes on discs

Before playing, wipe the disc with a cleaning cloth from the center outward

• 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 them in a car parked in direct sunlight.

On safety

• Completely disconnect the AC 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 system, 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.

• •

AC power cord (mains lead) must be changed only at the qualified service shop.

On handling the unit

• •

Do not splash water on the unit on purpose. Dust and drip proof performance is improved by the flat top structure of the unit, but this is not guaranteed for all the situations. If you accidentally splash liquid on the unit,

• wipe off immediately.

To maintain the dust and drip proof performance, make sure all the covers of the jacks/port/terminal are securely closed.

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, 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 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.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Caution: If you leave a still video image or on-screen display image displayed on your TV for an extended period of time via this system, you risk permanent damage to your TV screen. Projection TVs are especially susceptible to this.

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.

Notes on updating

This system allows you to update the software automatically when connected to the Internet via a wired or wireless network.

You can add new features and use the system with more convenience and safety by updating the system.

If you do not want to update automatically, you can disable the function by using SongPal installed on your smartphone/iPhone. However, the system may update the software automatically for reasons such as safety, even if this function is disabled.

You can also update the software using the settings menu when this function is disabled. See “Updating the software”

(page 64) for details.

You may not use the system while the software is being updated.

On BLUETOOTH communication

• BLUETOOTH devices should be used within approximately 10 meters

(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 are generated

BLUETOOTH devices and wireless LAN

(IEEE 802.11b/g/n) equipment 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:

— Use this system at least 10 meters away from the wireless LAN equipment.

— Turn off the power of the wireless

LAN equipment when using your

BLUETOOTH device within 10 meters.

— Use this system and BLUETOOTH device as closer to each other as possible.

• •

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 gases may be present

— Near automatic doors or fire alarms

This system supports security functions that comply with BLUETOOTH specifications to ensure secure connections 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.

MHC-V77DW.GB.4-596-07614(1)

• 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.
