Precautions

On placement

 At high volume, over long periods of time, the cabinet becomes hot to the touch. This is not a malfunction. However, touching the cabinet should be avoided. Do not place the system in a confined space where ventilation is poor as this may cause overheating.

 Do not install the system near heat sources such as radiators or air ducts, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, mechanical vibration, or shock.

 Do not install the system in an inclined position. It is designed to be operated in a horizontal position only.

 Do not place heavy objects on the system.

On operation

 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 lenses inside the unit. Should this occur, the system may not operate properly. In this case, remove the disc and leave the system turned on for about half an hour until the moisture evaporates.

 If anything falls into the cabinet, unplug the unit and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.

On cleaning

 Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls 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 alcohol or benzine.

If you have any questions or problems concerning your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

On cleaning discs, disc/lens cleaners

 Do not use cleaning discs or disc/lens cleaners (including wet or spray types).

These may cause the apparatus to malfunction.

On your TV’s color
