Cannot close cover. Is the disc properly secured in place? Cannot play discs. • Is the unit in HOLD status? • Is the disc properly secured in place? • Is there moisture condensation on the lens? (Wait for about an hour and then try again.) Wipe the unit with a soft cloth. Remove stubborn dirt using a cloth which has been dipped in water or soapy water and wrung out, and then wipe dry. • If you intend to use a chemically treated cleaning cloth, read its directions first. • Do not use alcohol or paint thinners. Cannot remove disc. Did you press the PUSH button to release the disc? Tracks on disc do not play in order, starting with the first track. Is the RESUME, NORMAL, RANDOM (play mode) selector in the NORMAL position? Cannot hear music—too noisy. • Is the headphones plug inserted all the way? • Is the plug dirty? (Wipe away dirt on the plug.) Rechargeable batteries • Only the BN-R122 battery can be recharged. • If the power delivered by the batteries lasts for a very short time after recharging, it means that the batteries’ service life is over. Do not use them any more. • Recharging already charged batteries will shorten their service life. • When recharging batteries for the first time or when they have not been used for a long period of time, the play time may be shorter than usual. In a case like this, repeatedly recharge and discharge the batteries. This will restore them to their regular state. • Do not allow any metal objects to touch the terminals of rechargeable batteries since this may cause short-circuiting which is dangerous. • Do not peel off the plastic covering on the rechargeable batteries. Short-circuiting may occur which is dangerous. Lens Lens Dry cell batteries / rechargeable batteries Note: Sound quality changes when HBS is selected, but volume is reduced by approximately fifty percent. TV picture is distorted. Radio reception is noisy. To prevent damage to the batteries and electrolyte leakage, heed the following points. • Align the , and . polarities properly when inserting the batteries. • Do not mix different types or makes of batteries or old and new batteries. • Remove the batteries if you do not plan to use the unit for a long period of time. • Do not throw batteries into a fire, and do not short-circuit, disassemble or subject them to excessive heat. • Do not attempt to recharge dry cell batteries. Carrying dry cell batteries / rechargeable batteries around Wipe it with a damp cloth and then wipe dry. Wipe from the center toward the outer circumference.
