About MP3 files
MP3 (MPEG 1 Audio Layer-3) is a standard

sequence. The file is compressed to about 1/10
of its original size. Sounds outside the range of
human hearing are compressed while the
sounds we can hear are not compressed.
Notes on discs
You can play MP3 files recorded on CDROMs, CD-Rs (recordable CDs), and CD-RWs
(rewritable CDs).
The disc must be in the ISO 9660* level 1 or
level 2 format.

Notes
• With formats other than ISO 9660 level 1 and 2,
folder names or file names may not be displayed
correctly.
• When naming files, be sure to add the file extension
“.MP3” to the file name.
• If you use the extension “.MP3” with a file other
than an MP3 file, the unit cannot read the file
properly and will generate random noise that could
damage your speakers.
• A disc recorded with a complicated tree structure
takes longer to start playback.
• When the disc is inserted, the player reads all the
files on that disc. If there are many folders or any
non-MP3 files on the disc, it may take a long time
for the player to begin or for the next MP3 files to
start to play.
• We recommend that you do not save files other than
MP3 files or unnecessary folders on the disc to be
used for MP3 listening.
• A folder that does not include an MP3 file is
skipped.
• Maximum number of folders on a disc: 255
(The maximum number of MP3 files and folders
that can be contained on a single disc is 512.)
• When you store the files and folders in a tree
structure, files in a maximum of 8 levels can be
played.
• Files and folders are played in the order they are
recorded on the disc.
• Depending on the encoding/writing software,
recording device, or the recording media used at the
time an MP3 file is recorded, you may encounter
such problems as disabled playback, sound
interruptions, and noise.

38GB
Tuner
Severe hum or noise/stations cannot be
received.
• Set the proper band and frequency (see page 20).
• Connect the antenna properly (see page 7).
• Find a place and an orientation that provide good
reception, then set up the antenna again. If you
cannot obtain good reception, we recommend
you connect a commercially available external
antenna.
• The supplied FM lead antenna receives signals
along its entire length, so make sure you extend
it fully.
• Locate the antennas as far away from the speaker
cords as possible.
• Consult your nearest Sony dealer if the supplied
AM antenna has come off the plastic stand.
• Try turning off surrounding electrical equipment.
A stereo FM program cannot be received in
stereo.
• Press REPEAT/FM MODE until “STEREO”
appears in the display.
• See “Severe hum or noise/stations cannot be
received.”, and check the antenna condition.
If the system still does not operate
properly after performing the above
measures, reset the system as
follows:

6 Plug the power cord back into the wall
outlet, then press ?/1 to turn on the
system.
The system is reset to the factory settings. All
the settings you made such as the preset
stations, clock and timer are cleared and must
be set again.

Precautions
On operating voltage
Before operating the system, check that the
operating voltage of your system is identical
with the voltage of your local power supply.
On safety
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned off.
• Unplug the system from the wall outlet if it is not to
be used for an extended period of time.
To disconnect the power cord, pull it out by the
plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
system, unplug the system and have it checked by
qualified personnel before operating it any further.
• AC power cord must be changed only at the
qualified service shop.
On placement
• Make sure the system fan is on during use.
Place the system in a location with adequate air
circulation, and do not place anything on top of the
system.
• Do not place the system in an inclined position.
• Do not place the system in locations where it is:
— Extremely hot or cold
— Dusty or dirty
— Very humid
— Subject to vibrations
— Subject to direct sunlight.
• Use caution when placing the unit or speakers on
surfaces that have been specially treated (with wax,
oil, polish, etc.) as staining or discoloration of the
surface may result.
40GB
• Although the system heats up during operation, this
is not a malfunction.
• Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build up in the system.
If you continuously use this system at a large volume,
the cabinet temperature of the top, side and bottom
rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not
touch the cabinet.
To prevent a malfunction, do not cover the ventilation
hole for the cooling fan.
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 lens inside the
VIDEO CD/CD player. Should this occur, the
system will not operate properly. Remove the disc
and leave the system turned on for about an hour
until the moisture evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any discs.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
Notes on discs
To save a tape permanently
• Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning cloth.
Wipe the disc from the center out.
• Do not use a disc with tape, seals, or paste on it as
this may damage the player.
• Do not use solvents.
• Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat
sources.
• Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart, square,
star) cannot be played on this system. Attempting to
do so may damage the system. Do not use such
discs.
To prevent a tape from being accidentally recorded
over, break off the cassette tab from side A or B as
illustrated.
Side A
Tab of side A
Tab of side B
Cleaning the cabinet
Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with mild
detergent solution.
Before placing a cassette in the tape
deck
Take up any slack in the tape. Otherwise, the tape
may get entangled in the parts of the tape deck and
become damaged.
Break off the
cassette tab of
side A
If you later want to reuse the tape for recording, cover
the broken tab with adhesive tape.
When using a tape longer than 90
minutes
The tape is very elastic. Do not change the tape
operations such as play, stop, and fast-winding
frequently. The tape may get entangled in the tape
deck.
Cleaning the tape heads
Demagnetizing the tape heads
Demagnetize the tape heads and the metal parts that
have contact with the tape after every 20 to 30 hours
of use with a separately sold demagnetizing cassette.
For details, refer to the instructions of the
demagnetizing cassette.
Additional Information
Clean the tape heads after every 10 hours of use.
Be sure to clean the tape heads before you start an
important recording or after playing an old tape.
Use a separately sold dry-type or wet-type cleaning
cassette. For details, refer to the instructions of the
cleaning cassette.
