General
Problem
Cause
Solution
The unit is not on.
The touch sensors do not respond.
A touch sensor was tapped or touched inadvertently while the
unit was starting up (a period of approx. five seconds after the
power cable is plugged into an electrical outlet).
Avoid tapping or inadvertently touching the touch sensors while
the unit is starting up. Do not attempt to turn on the unit until
start-up is complete (& p. 5).

The unit does not operate properly.
The power cord is not properly connected.
Be sure that the power cord is firmly inserted into the power
connector jack on the unit and the electrical outlet.
The unit cannot be operated.
The internal microcomputer has frozen due to an external
electrical shock (lightning, excessive static electricity, etc.) or a
drop in power supply voltage.
Unplug the unit from the electrical outlet, wait for at least 30
seconds, and then plug the unit into the electrical outlet again.
No sound comes from the unit.
An input source has not been properly selected.
Use the MusicCast CONTROLLER app to select an input source
(& p. 8).
Interference from nearby electronic equipment
is producing noise.

communication.
Move the unit and Bluetooth device farther away from the device.
If the wireless LAN router supports the 5 GHz band, connect
network devices to the network using the 5 GHz band.
The unit is already connected to another Bluetooth device.
Terminate the current Bluetooth connection, and then connect to
the new device.
The unit’s Bluetooth function is disabled.
Enable the unit’s Bluetooth function (& p. 21).
