Notes on DualDiscs
A DualDisc is a two sided disc product which mates
DVD recorded material on one side with digital
audio material on the other side. However, since the
audio material side does not conform to the Compact
Disc (CD) standard, playback on this product is not
guaranteed.
Music discs encoded with
copyright protection technologies
This product is designed to playback discs that
conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard. Recently,
various music discs encoded with copyright protection
technologies are marketed by some record companies.
Please be aware that among those discs, there are some
that do not conform to the CD standard and may not be

the unit for 2 seconds until “AUTO” flashes in the
display.
3 Press DISP/ENT/MEMORY  on the unit.
The stations are stored in memory from the lower
frequencies to the higher ones.
• Connect the AC power cord to the wall outlet securely.
• Make sure the batteries are inserted correctly.
• Replace all the batteries with new ones if they are
weak.
• You cannot turn on the player with the remote when
you operate the player on batteries.
The power is not on, and “BATT” and
“ERROR” are displayed alternately.
• Make sure the batteries are inserted correctly.
• Replace all the batteries with new ones if they are
weak.
There is no audio.
• Unplug the headphones when listening through speakers.
• Someone is using a portable telephone or other
equipment that emits radio waves near the player.
 Move the portable telephone, etc., away from the
player.
• Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner,
commercially available cleaners or anti-static spray
intended for vinyl LPs.
• Do not expose the CD to direct sunlight or heat sources
such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car parked in
direct sunlight as there can be a considerable rise in
temperature inside the car.
• Do not stick paper or sticker on the CD, nor scratch the
surface of the CD.
• After playing, store the CD in its case.
On safety
• As the laser beam used in the CD player section is
harmful to the eyes, do not attempt to disassemble the
casing. Refer servicing to qualified personnel only.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the player,
unplug the player, and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
• Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart, square,
star) cannot be played on this player. Attempting to do
so may damage the player. Do not use such discs.
On power sources
• For AC operation, check that the player’s operating
voltage is identical with your local power supply (see
“Specifications”) and use the supplied AC power cord;
do not use any other type.
• The player is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the player itself has been turned off.
• Unplug the player from the wall outlet when it is not
used for an extended period of time.
• When the batteries are not to be used, remove them to
avoid damage that can be caused by battery leakage or
corrosion.
• The nameplate indicating operating voltage, power
consumption, etc. is located at the bottom.
On placement
• Do not leave the player in a location near heat sources,
in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust or
mechanical shock or in a car subject to the direct rays
of the sun.
• Do not place the player on an inclined or unstable
place.
• Do not place anything within 10 mm of the side of the
cabinet. The ventilation holes must be unobstructed for
the player to operate properly and prolong the life of its
components.
• Since a strong magnet is used for the speakers, keep
personal credit cards using magnetic coding or
spring-wound watches away from the player to prevent
possible damage from the magnet.
CD/MP3 player
The CD does not play or “no DISC” is
displayed even when a CD is in place.
• Place the CD with the label surface up.
• Clean the CD.
• Take out the CD and leave the CD compartment open
for about an hour to dry moisture condensation.
• The CD-R/CD-RW is blank.
• There is a problem with the quality of the CD-R/
CD-RW, recording device or application software.
• Replace all the batteries with new ones if they are
weak.
The sound drops out.
• Reduce the volume.
• Clean the CD, or replace it if the CD is badly
damaged.
• Place the player in a location free from vibration.
• Clean the lens with a commercially available blower.
• The sound may drop out or noise may be heard when
using poor quality CD-Rs/CD-RWs or if there is a
problem with the recording device or application
software.
“NOT MP3” is displayed.
• You are trying to play a file that is not an MP3 file but
has extension “mp3”.
“NOT MP3” and “LAYER 1”, or “NOT MP3”
and “LAYER 2” are displayed alternately.
• You are trying to play an MPEG1 Audio Layer-1 or 2
file. You can only play MP3 (MPEG 1 Audio Layer-3)
files on this player.
“no MP3” is displayed.
• There are no MP3 files on the disc.
Starting playback takes more time than
usual.
• The following discs take a longer time to start
playback.
– a disc recorded with a complicated tree structure.
– a disc that has not been finalized (a disc to which data
can be added).
– a disc that has many folders or non-MP3 files.
Radio
Reception is poor.
• Reorient the antenna to improve FM reception.
On operation
• If the player is brought directly from a cold to a warm
location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture
