Setting Up the System
Precautions
Safety precautions
This section explains how to connect the system.
Power supply
• Operate the unit only with a power source as
specified in “Specifications” section.
• Do not drop or place heavy objects on the power
cord. If the power cord is damaged, turn off the
power immediately. It is dangerous to use the
unit with a damaged power cord.
• Disconnect the power cord from the AC outlet by
grasping the plug, not by pulling the cord.
Chairman’s unit/delegate’s unit and
interpreter’s unit
The SX-M100 Control Unit is provided with four
DELEGATE’S/CHAIRMAN’S UNIT connectors.
Up to 15 chairman’s/delegate’s units can be
connected to each of the DELEGATE’S/
CHAIRMAN’S UNIT connectors in serial
connection. The distance between the control unit
and the last chairman’s/delegate’s unit should not
exceed 60 meters (196.8 feet).
Keep foreign objects out of the cabinet
Dropping flammable or metal objects into the
cabinet, or spilling liquids onto the cabinet can
lead to accidents.
In case of malfunctions
If you notice any unusual sound, smell or smoke,
turn off the power immediately, disconnect the
power supply and contact your Sony dealer.
Cleaning
Clean the cabinet and panels by wiping with a soft,
dry cloth. For severe stains, moisten the cloth with
a small amount of neutral solvent, and finish by
wiping with a dry cloth. Do not use alcohol,
benzine, thinner or volatile liquids, as these may
discolor or damage the cabinet surface.
14
System Connection
Notes
• Be sure to turn off the power of any units before
attempting connection or disconnection.
• The desktop type SX-C100A/D100A and the
desk-mounted SX-C150/D150 are used with this
system.
It is not recommended to mix both combinations.
• When the SX-C100A/D100A is used, the SXC700A/C750/D700A/D750 Chairman’s Unit/
Delegate’s Unit, designed for the simultaneous
interpretation conference system, can be
connected to configure this conference system.
However, after the system power is turned on,
the microphone indicator and MIC ON/OFF
buttons of the chairman’s unit and delegate’s unit
continue to blink for about 3 seconds to inform
that the SX-C700A/D700A units for
simultaneous interpretation conference system
have been connected to the conference system.
• If you turn on the system power before
connecting the chairman’s unit/delegate’s unit,
the microphone indicators and MIC ON/OFF
buttons continue to blink and these units cannot
be controlled by the control unit. In such a case,
turn the power off, then back on again.
• When using the DELEGATE’S/CHAIRMAN’S
UNIT connectors of the SX-M100 Control Unit,
attach the dust caps removed from the 20-pin
multi-connectors on the control unit to the 20-pin
multi-connectors on the last unit connected.
If the 20-pin multi-connector has no dust cap,
keep it away from metal tools, such as
screwdrivers to prevent the connector being
inadvertently shorted.

Troubleshooting Guide
Should a problem arise in your system, check the system while referring to the
instructions in the table below. If the system continues to malfunction after
applying the following checks and remedies, contact your nearest Sony dealer.
The system indicates the problem by lighting the microphone indicator and MIC
ON/OFF button of chairman’s/delegate’s units.
Lighting of the
microphone indicator
and MIC ON/OFF button
of the chairman’s unit/
delegate’s unit
The indicator and button
blink for a few seconds
when the POWER
switch of the control unit
is set to ON.
The indicator and button
of the chairman’s/
delegate’s units
continue to blink, after
the power switch of the
control unit is set to ON.
Possible cause
Remedies
The chairman’s unit/
delegate’s units for a
conference system, SXC100A/D100A/SX-C150/
D150, and those for a
simultaneous
interpretation conference
system, SX-C700A/
D700A/SX-C750/D750,
have been connected.
The units whose indicator
and button are blinking
cannot be controlled by
the control unit and cannot
be used in this system.
The SX-C700A/D700A/SX-C750/D750 can be used.
However, same sound is output from channel 1 to channel 6.
After the unit has been
operated for a while
after the power is turned
on, the unit’s indicator
and button start blinking
and do not go out, even
after a few seconds.
A communication error
has occurred.
The volume of the
earphone cannot be
adjusted by using the
VOL control.
The indicator and button
blink and the
microphone is disabled
even if the MIC ON/OFF
button is pressed.
The earphone may be
disconnected.
• The mode is that where
the number of speakers
is limited.
• The PRIORITY button is
held down by the
chairman.
• When the indicator and button of units subsequent to the
16th unit of the units connected to one DELEGATE’S/
CHAIRMAN’S connector of the control unit blink:
– More than 16 units cannot be connected to one
DELEGATE’S/CHAIRMAN’S connector in series.
Disconnect the 16th unit and subsequent units.
• Even though the number of connected units is less than 16,
the indicators of some of the connected units blink:
– The first unit whose indicator and button are blinking may
be defective, or the connecting cable may be broken.
Disconnect the first unit of those whose indicator and
button are blinking. When the indicator and button of the
subsequent units stop blinking and go out, it indicates
that the disconnected unit was defective. Remove it from
the system or replace it with a functioning unit.
When the indicator and button continue to blink even
after removing the first unit, the connecting cable is
probably broken. Replace the connecting cable linking
the first unit whose indicator and button are blinking and
the unit immediately prior to that unit.
• Even though the number of connected units is less than 16,
the indicator and button of some of the connected units
blink:
– The unit whose indicator and button blink is defective.
Disconnect it from the system or replace it with a
functioning unit.
Briefly turn the power off, then back on again.
If the unit subsequently operates normally, communication is
resumed.
If this problem occurs frequently, contact your nearest Sony
dealer.
If the indicator and button continue to blink just after the
power is turned on again, a problem described above may
have occurred. Proceed as described above.
Insert the earphone plug into the earphone jack surely.
• Wait until the speaker finishes speaking. Press the MIC
ON/OFF button again.
• Wait until the chairman releases the PRIORITY button.
