On power sources
• Before operating the receiver, check that the
operating voltage is identical with your local
power supply.
The operating voltage is indicated on the
nameplate on the back of the receiver.
• 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.
• If you are not going to use the receiver for a
long time, be sure to disconnect the receiver
from the wall outlet. To disconnect the AC
power cord (mains lead), grasp the plug
itself; never pull the cord.
• (Models of area code U, CA only)
One blade of the plug is wider than the other
for the purpose of safety and will fit into the
wall outlet only one way. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the outlet, contact
your dealer.
• The AC power cord (mains lead) must be
changed only at a qualified service shop.
On heat buildup
Although the receiver heats up during
operation, this is not a malfunction. If you
continuously use this receiver at a large
volume, the cabinet temperature of the top,
side and bottom rises considerably. To avoid
burning yourself, do not touch the cabinet.

29GB
Using the Remote/Additional Information
Blu-ray disc player
(command mode BD1)b)
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
cabinet, unplug the receiver and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
On placement
• Place the receiver in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat buildup and
prolong the life of the receiver.
• Do not place the receiver near heat sources,
or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical shock.
• Do not place anything on top of the cabinet
that might block the ventilation holes and
cause malfunctions.
• Do not place the receiver near equipment
such as a television, VCR, or tape deck. If
the receiver is being used in combination
with a television, VCR, or tape deck, and is
placed too close to that equipment, noise
may result, and picture quality may suffer.
This is especially likely when using an
indoor antenna (aerial). Therefore, we
recommend using an outdoor antenna
(aerial).
• Use caution when placing the receiver on
surfaces that have been specially treated
(with wax, oil, polish, etc.) as staining or
discoloration of the surface may result.
On operation
Before connecting other components, be sure
to turn off and unplug the receiver.
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

Troubleshooting
If you experience any of the following
difficulties while using the receiver, use this
troubleshooting guide to help you remedy the
problem.
Audio
There is no sound, no matter which
component is selected, or only a very
low-level sound is heard.
• Check that the speakers and components
are connected correctly and securely.
• Check that both the receiver and all
components are turned on.
• Check that MASTER VOLUME is not set
to “VOL MIN”.
• Check that the SPEAKERS (OFF/A/B/
A+B) is not set to “OFF”.
• Check that headphones are not connected.
• Press MUTING to cancel the muting
function.
• Check that you have selected the correct
component with the input buttons.
• The protective device on the receiver has
been activated. Turn off the receiver,
eliminate the short-circuit problem, and
turn on the power again.
There is no sound from a specific
component.
• Check that the component is connected
correctly to the audio input jacks for that
component.
• Check that the cord(s) used for the
connection is (are) fully inserted into the
jacks on both the receiver and the
component.
There is no sound from one of the
speakers.
• Connect a pair of headphones to the
PHONES jack to verify that sound is
output from the headphones. If only one
channel is output from the headphones, the
component may not be connected to the
receiver correctly. Check that all the cords
are fully inserted into the jacks on both the
receiver and the component. If both
channels are output from the headphones,
the speaker may not be connected to the
receiver correctly. Check the connection of
the speaker which is not outputting any
sound.
• Make sure you have connected to both the
L and R jacks of an analog component, and
not only to either the L or R jack. Use an
audio cord (not supplied).
The left and right sounds are
unbalanced or reversed.
• Check that the speakers and components
are connected correctly and securely.
• Adjust the speaker balance (page 20).
Recording cannot be carried out.
• Check that the components are connected
correctly.
• Select the source component using the
input buttons (page 18).
Video
There is no picture or an unclear
picture appears on the TV screen.
• Depending on the DIGITAL MEDIA
PORT adapter, video output may not be
possible.
Tuner
The FM reception is poor.
• Use a 75-ohm coaxial cable (not supplied)
to connect the receiver to an outdoor FM
antenna (aerial) as shown below. If you
connect the receiver to an outdoor antenna
(aerial), ground it against lightning. To
prevent a gas explosion, do not connect the
ground wire to a gas pipe.

Additional Information
There is severe hum or noise.
• Check that the speakers and components
are connected securely.
• Check that the connecting cords are away
from a transformer or motor, and at least
3 meters (10 feet) away from a TV set or
fluorescent light.
• Move your audio components away from
the TV.
• The plugs and jacks are dirty. Wipe them
with a cloth slightly moistened with
alcohol.
There is no sound from the component
connected to the DIGITAL MEDIA PORT
adapter.
• Adjust the volume of this receiver.
• The DIGITAL MEDIA PORT adapter
and/or component is not connected
correctly. Turn off the receiver, then
reconnect the DIGITAL MEDIA PORT
adapter and/or component.
• Check the DIGITAL MEDIA PORT
adapter and/or component device to make
sure it supports this receiver.
Radio stations cannot be tuned in.
• Check that the antennas (aerials) are
connected securely. Adjust the antennas
(aerials) and connect an external antenna
(aerial), if necessary.
• The signal strength of the stations is too
weak (when tuning in with auto tuning).
Use direct tuning.
• Make sure you set the tuning interval
correctly (when tuning in AM stations
with direct tuning).
• No stations have been preset or the preset
stations have been cleared (when tuning by
scanning preset stations). Preset the
stations (page 24).
• Press DISPLAY repeatedly on the receiver
so that the frequency appears on the
display.
RDS does not work.*
• Make sure that you are tuned to an FM
RDS station.
• Select a stronger FM station.
The RDS information that you want
does not appear.*
• Contact the radio station and find out
whether they actually provide the service
in question. If so, the service may be
temporarily out of order.
* Models of area code CEL, CEK only.
Remote commander
The remote does not function.
• Point the remote at the remote sensor on
the receiver.
• Remove any obstacles in the path between
the remote and the receiver.
• Replace all the batteries in the remote with
new ones, if they are weak.
• Make sure you select the correct input on
the remote.
