Additional Information
Precautions
Before operating the system, check that the
operating voltage of your system is identical with
the voltage of your local power supply.
• Before playing, clean the CD with a cleaning cloth.
Wipe the CD from the center out.
• Do not use solvents such as benzene, 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.
On safety
Cleaning the cabinet
• 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 (mains) if
it is not to be used for an extended period of time.
To disconnect the cord (mains lead), pull it out by
the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
component, unplug the stereo system and have
the component checked by qualified personnel
before operating it any further.
• The AC power cord must be changed only at a
qualified service shop.
Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with mild
detergent solution.
On operating voltage
On placement
• Place the stereo system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the stereo
system.
• Do not place the unit in an inclined position.
• Do not place the unit in locations where it is;
— Extremely hot or cold
— Dusty or dirty
— Very humid
— Vibrating
— Subject to direct sunlight.
On operation
• If the stereo 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 CD player. Should this occur, the system will
not operate properly. Remove the CD 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 stereo system, please consult your nearest
Sony dealer.

Notes on CDs
To save a tape permanently
To prevent a tape from being accidentally recorded
over, break off the cassette tab from side A or B as
illustrated.
Tab of side B
Tab of side A
Side A
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.
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.
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 (etc.)
frequently. The tape may get entangled in the tape
deck.
Troubleshooting
If you run into any problem using this stereo
system, use the following check list.
First, check that the power cord is connected
firmly and the speakers are connected
correctly and firmly.
Should any problem persist, consult your
nearest Sony dealer.
Cleaning the tape heads
Clean the tape heads after every 10 hours of use.
When the tape heads become dirty;
— the sound is distorted
— there is a decrease in sound level
— the sound drops out
— the tape does not erase completely
— the tape does not record.
Make sure to clean the tape heads before you start
an important recording or after playing an old tape.
Use separately sold dry-type or wet-type cleaning
cassette. For details, refer to the instructions of the
cleaning cassette.
Demagnetizing the tape heads
Demagnetize the tape heads and the metal parts that
have contact with the tape every 20 to 30 hours of
use with a separately sold demagnetizing cassette.
For details, refer to the instructions of the
demagnetizing cassette.
In case color irregularity is
observed on nearby a TV screen.
With the magnetically shielded type of speaker
system, the speakers can be installed near a TV set.
However, color irregularity may still be observed on
the TV screen depending on the type of your TV set.
If color irregularity is observed…
Turn off the TV set once, then turn it on after 15 to
30 minutes.
If color irregularity is observed
again…
Place the speakers farther away from the TV set.

VIDEO CD
A compact disc which contains moving
pictures.
VIDEO CDs contain compact picture
information using the MPEG 1 format, one of
the world wide standards of digital compact
technology. The picture information is
compressed about 120 times. Consequently, a
12 cm VIDEO CD can contain up to 74
minutes of moving pictures.
VIDEO CDs also contain compact audio
information. Sounds outside the range of
human hearing are compressed while the
sounds we can hear are not compressed.
VIDEO CDs can hold six times the audio
information of conventional audio CDs.
There are two versions for VIDEO CDs:
Version 1.1 (VIDEO CDs without PBC
functions):
You can play only moving pictures and
sounds.
Version 2.0 (VIDEO CDs with PBC functions):
You can play still pictures and enjoy PBC
functions.
This player can play to both versions.
