Notes on discs
•• Before playing, wipe the disc with a
cleaning cloth from the center outward
to the edge.
•• Do not clean discs with solvents, such
as benzine, thinner, or commercially
available cleaners or anti-static spray
intended for vinyl LPs.
•• Do not expose discs to direct sunlight
or heat sources such as hot air ducts,
nor leave them in a car parked in direct
sunlight.
On safety
On the speaker system
•• Completely disconnect the AC power
The built-in speaker system is not
magnetically shielded, and the picture on
nearby TV sets may become magnetically
distorted. In this situation, turn off the
TV, wait 15 to 30 minutes, and turn it back
on. If there is no improvement, move the
system far away from the TV.
cord (mains lead) from the wall outlet
(mains) if it is not going to be used
for an extended period of time. When
unplugging the system, always grip the
plug. Never pull the cord itself.
•• Should any solid object or liquid get
into the system, unplug the system, and
have it checked by qualified personnel
before operating it again.
•• AC power cord (mains lead) must be
changed only at the qualified service
shop.
On placement
•• Do not place the system in an inclined
position or in locations that are
extremely hot, cold, dusty, dirty, or
humid or lacking adequate ventilation,
or subject to vibration, direct sunlight or
a bright light.
•• Be careful when placing the system
on surfaces that have been specially
treated (for example, wax, oil, polish) as
staining or discoloration of the surface
may result.
•• If the 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 unit,
and cause the system to malfunction.
In this situation, remove the disc, and
leave the system turned on for about an
hour until the moisture evaporates.
•• Heat buildup on the unit during
operation is normal and is not a cause
for alarm.
•• Do not touch the cabinet if it has been
used continuously at a high volume
because the cabinet may have become
hot.
•• Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.
Caution: If you leave a still video
image or on-screen display image
displayed on your TV for an extended
period of time via this system, you
risk permanent damage to your TV
screen. Projection TVs are especially
susceptible to this.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean this system with a soft cloth slightly
moistened with a mild detergent solution.
Do not use any type of abrasive pad,
scouring powder, or solvent, such as
thinner, benzine, or alcohol.

On BLUETOOTH communication
•• BLUETOOTH devices should be used
within approximately 10 meters
(unobstructed distance) of each
other. The effective communication
range may become shorter under the
following conditions.
—— When a person, metal object, wall
or other obstruction is between
the devices with a BLUETOOTH
connection
—— Locations where a wireless LAN is
installed
—— Around microwave ovens that are
in use
—— Locations where other
electromagnetic waves are
generated
•• BLUETOOTH devices and wireless LAN
(IEEE 802.11b/g/n) equipment use the
same frequency band (2.4 GHz). When
using your BLUETOOTH device near
a device with wireless LAN capability,
electromagnetic interference may
occur. This could result in lower data
transfer rates, noise, or inability to
connect. If this happens, try the
following remedies:
—— Use this system at least 10 meters
away from the wireless LAN
equipment.
—— Turn off the power of the wireless
LAN equipment when using your
BLUETOOTH device within 10 meters.
—— Use this system and BLUETOOTH
device as closer to each other as
possible.
•• The radio waves broadcast by this
system may interfere with the operation
of some medical devices. Since this
interference may result in malfunction,
always turn off the power on this
system and BLUETOOTH device in the
following locations:
84GB
—— In hospitals, on trains, in airplanes,
at gas stations, and any place where
flammable gases may be present
—— Near automatic doors or fire alarms
•• This system supports security
functions that comply with BLUETOOTH
specifications to ensure secure
connections during communication
using BLUETOOTH technology. However,
this security may be insufficient
depending on the setting contents
and other factors, so always be careful
when performing communication using
BLUETOOTH technology.
•• Sony cannot be held liable in any way
for damages or other loss resulting
from information leaks during
communication using BLUETOOTH
technology.
•• BLUETOOTH communication is not
necessarily guaranteed with all
BLUETOOTH devices that have the same
profile as this system.
•• BLUETOOTH devices connected with
this system must comply with the
BLUETOOTH specification prescribed
by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc., and must
be certified to comply. However, even
when a device complies with the
BLUETOOTH specification, there may
be cases where the characteristics or
specifications of the BLUETOOTH device
make it impossible to connect, or may
result in different control methods,
display or operation.
•• Noise may occur or the audio may
cut off depending on the BLUETOOTH
device connected with this system,
the communications environment, or
surrounding conditions.
