Notes
• The battery indicator may show the battery to
be fully charged even when it is not. Charging
the battery shorter than the prescribed time will
result in a shorter operating time on the player.
• A stronger or weaker battery charge may be
indicated when you fast forward or fast reverse
an MD, or when you use the player at a very
cold place.
Precautions
• Make sure to keep the player in the supplied
carrying pouch. If the terminals on the player,
battery-charging case with speakers, or the dry
battery case are accidentally brought into
contact with a metallic object, they may shortcircuit and begin to heat up.
• Keep the terminals on the player or on the dry
battery case away from metallic objects or
surfaces. Such contact may short-circuit the
terminals and cause dangerous heat
generation. When carrying the player with
you, always keep the battery case attached to
the supplied battery-charging case.
• When you carry the supplied rechargeable
battery, be sure to put it in the supplied
rechargeable battery carrying case. Carrying
the rechargeable battery without the case may
cause a short-circuit with metallic objects such
as coins, key rings, or necklaces. As a result,
heat may be generated.
• Do not put any foreign objects in the DC IN
3V jack.
• Do not carry or store the dry battery or battery
case in the same place with metallic objects
such as coins, key rings, or necklaces. This
may cause a short-circuit and the generation of
heat.
• Incorrect battery usage may cause the battery
fluid to leak or battery to burst. To prevent
such accidents, observe the following
precautions:
— Install battery with the + and – poles
aligned correctly.
— Do not charge dry battery.
• If a battery leak should develop, carefully and
thoroughly wipe away the battery fluid in the
battery compartment before inserting a new
battery.
• If you will not use the player for a long time,
be sure to disconnect the power supply (AC
power adaptor, dry battery, rechargeable
battery, or the battery-charging case). When
disconnecting the AC power adaptor from the
electrical outlet, grasp the adaptor plug itself;
never pull the cord.
Slide the jog lever repeatedly until
“BACKLIGHT” appears in the display,

On charging
On cleaning
• The supplied battery-charging case with
speakers can be used only with the
MZ-E810SP. It cannot be used to charge any
other models.
• Do not use the supplied battery-charging case
with speakers to charge any other battery
besides the one designated for it.
• Charge the rechargeable battery at a
temperature of +5°C (+41°F) to +40°C
(+104°F). The charging time will vary
according to the surrounding temperature.
• The battery-charging case and the battery may
become hot during the charging procedure;
this, however poses no danger.
• Because of the battery’s characteristics, the
capacity of the 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 capacity of the rechargeable battery
drops to half the normal amount, replace it
with a new one.
• As soon as the charging is complete, remove
the player from the battery-charging case and
disconnect the battery-charging case from the
electrical outlet. Leaving it connected may
result in reduced battery performance.
• 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.
• Clean the terminals periodically with a cotton
swab or a soft cloth as illustrated.

Notes
• When the power mode is set to “QUICK,” the
power remains on within the player even when
nothing appears in the display. This leads to a
shorter battery life. For this reason, it is
recommended that you charge the battery daily.
• If no player operation (including opening or
closing of the lid) occurs for 17 hours, the
power in the player automatically turns off.
For this reason, the next time you start
playback or do another operation, the player
will not respond quickly. The unit, however,
will return to quick mode afterwards.

Heat may build up in the player when it is
charging or operated for a long time. This,
however, is not a malfunction.
On mechanical noise
Battery-charging case with speakers
Terminal
The player emits mechanical noise while
operating, which is caused by the powersaving system of the player. This is not a
malfunction.
On installation
• Never use the player where it will be subjected
to extremes of light, temperature, moisture or
vibration.
• Never wrap the player in anything when it is
being used with the AC power adaptor. Heat
build-up in the player may cause malfunction
or injury.
On the remote control
The supplied remote control is designed for
use with the MZ-E810SP only. Note also that
the player cannot be controlled by remote
controls for other models.
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.)
On the MiniDisc cartridge
• 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.
On the headphones/earphones
Road safety
• 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.
On the dry battery case
The supplied dry battery case is designed for
use with the MZ-E810SP only.
