Preserving battery power
(Power Save Mode)
This function allows you to maximize the
operating life of the battery. Power
consumption is reduced by turning off the
“3-color info-LED” at all times, or by turning
off the display when no operation has been
made for a while.
This procedure can be done by the remote
control.

Press and hold DISPLAY for 2 seconds
or more.
Slide the jog lever repeatedly until
“OPTION” appears in the display, and
then press the jog lever.
On safety
• Make sure to keep the player in the supplied
carrying pouch. If the terminals on the player
or battery charging stand are accidentally
brought into contact with a metallic object,
they may short-circuit and begin to heat up.
• Keep the terminals on the player away from
metallic objects or surfaces. Such contact may
short-circuit the terminals and cause
dangerous heat generation.
• Do not put any foreign objects in the DC IN 6V jack.
• If you will not use the player for a long time,
be sure to disconnect the power supply (AC
power adaptor or battery charging stand).
When disconnecting the AC power adaptor
from the electrical outlet, grasp the adaptor
plug itself; never pull the cord.

With a fully charged battery
Note
The battery life may be shorter than that
specified, depending on the operating conditions,
the temperature of the location.
Using house current
• The supplied battery charging stand can be
used only with the MZ-E10. It cannot be used
to charge any other models.
• Charge the built-in battery at a temperature of
0°C (+32°F) to +40°C (+104°F). The charging
time will vary according to the surrounding
temperature. (If the surrounding temperature
is low, the required charging time will be
longer. This is a characteristic of the built-in
lithium-ion battery.)
• The battery charging stand and the player
may become hot during the charging
procedure; this, however poses no danger.
• Because of the battery’s characteristics, the
capacity of the built-in rechargeable battery
may be smaller than normal when it is used
for the first time or after a long period of
disuse. In this case, charge and discharge the
battery several times. The normal battery life
will be restored.
• If the life of the built-in rechargeable battery
drops to half the normal length, the battery
should be replaced. Consult your nearest
Sony dealer.
• If the player will be unused for a long time,
remove the player from the battery charging
stand and remove the AC power adaptor from
the wall outlet. If the player will be unused
for 3 months or more, we also recommend that
you turn the BUILT-IN BATTERY switch (for
built-in rechargeable battery) on the side of the
player off.
On disposing of the unit
Before you dispose of the unit, remove the
built-in rechargeable battery for
environmental protection.
• Do not remove the screw except when
disposing of the unit.
• Before removing the built-in rechargeable
battery, make sure it is completely drained.
Do the following procedure to remove the
built-in rechargeable battery. When removing
the battery, use sharp-tipped tweezers.
1 Slide the BUILT-IN BATTERY switch on the
side of the player to OFF.
You can operate the player even if the built-in
battery is exhausted. To do this, connect the
battery charging stand to an AC outlet
through the AC power adaptor, and then
place the player on the stand.
2 Remove the screw to the right of the BUILT-IN
BATTERY switch.
• Do not touch the internal disc directly.
Forcing the shutter open may damage the
internal disc.
• When transporting a minidisc, keep it in its
case.
• Do not place the cartridge where it will be
subjected to light, temperature, moisture or
dust.
• Do not affix the label outside of the specified
area on the MD. Make sure the label is placed
within the recessed space on the disc.

• Do not use headphones/earphones while
driving, cycling, or operating any motorized
vehicle. This may lead to a traffic accident and
is illegal in many areas. It can also be
potentially dangerous to play your player at
high volumes while walking, especially at
pedestrian crossings. You should exercise
extreme caution or discontinue using the
player in potentially hazardous situations.
• If you experience an allergic reaction to the
supplied headphones/earphones, stop using
them at once and consult a doctor or a Sony
service center.
Preventing hearing damage
Avoid using headphones/earphones at high
volumes. Hearing experts advise against
continuous, loud and extended play. If you
experience a ringing in your ears, reduce the
volume or discontinue use.
Caring for others
Keep the volume at a moderate level. This
will allow you to hear outside sounds and to
be considerate of the people around you.

• After wiping the player casing with a soft
cloth slightly moistened with water, wipe it
again with a dry cloth. Do not use any type of
abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent such
as alcohol or benzene as this may mar the
finish on the casing.
• Wipe the disc cartridge with a dry cloth to
remove dirt.
• Dust on the lens may prevent the unit from
operating properly. Be sure to close the disc
compartment lid after inserting or ejecting an
MD.
• To maintain good sound quality, use a soft
cloth to clean the plugs of the headphones/
earphones and remote control. A dirty plug
may cause noise or intermittent breaks in the
sound during playback.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your player, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer. (If a trouble occurred
when the disc was in the player, we
recommend that the disc be left in the player
when you consult your Sony dealer so that
the cause of trouble may be better
understood.)
9 Attach a piece of insulating tape over the
power supply board connector.
Troubleshooting
On handling
The built-in rechargeable battery does
not charge.
• The rechargeable battery has been fully
charged. (The battery is charged when
shipped.)
b Check the battery indicator on the
remote control for the remaining
charge.
• Do not drop or bump the player. This may
cause the player to malfunction.
• Do not pull on the remote control or
headphones/earphones cords.
