3. PRECAUTIONS
WARNING
For your safety, the driver should not watch the DVD video/TV/VTR or operate the controls
while driving. Please note that watching and operating the DVD video/TV/VTR while driving are
prohibited by law in some countries. Also, while driving, keep the volume to a level at which
external sounds can be heard.
1. When the inside of the car is very cold and the
player is used soon after switching on the
heater, moisture may form on the disc (DVD/
CD) or the optical parts of the player and
proper playback may not be possible. If
moisture forms on the disc (DVD/CD), wipe it
off with a soft cloth. If moisture forms on the
optical parts of the player, do not use the
player for about one hour. The condensation
will disappear naturally allowing normal
operation.
4. TV broadcast reception (when the optional TV
tuner is connected)
When receiving the TV broadcast, the
strength of the signals changes since the car
is moving, so in some cases it may not be
possible to receive clear pictures.
• TV signals are strongly linear, so reception
is affected by buildings, mountains and
other obstacles.
• External factors such as electric train lines,
a high voltage lines, and signal devices may
disturb the picture or cause noise.
2. Driving on extremely bumpy roads which
cause severe vibration may cause the sound
to skip.
* If the reception is poor, switch to a station with
good reception.
INFORMATION FOR USERS:
3. This unit uses a precision mechanism. Even
in the event that trouble arises, never open
the case, disassemble the unit, or lubricate
the rotating parts.
CHANGES OR MODIFICATIONS TO THIS
PRODUCT NOT APPROVED BY THE
MANUFACTURER WILL VOID THE
WARRANTY.
Note:
*1: This button does not work when the liquid crystal
panel is closed.

2-ZONE Function
Setting the 2-ZONE function
• The factory default setting is “OFF”.
The 2-ZONE function is a function that outputs
separate sounds/images from the MAIN zone
and SUB zone (such as the optional rear monitor)
by simultaneously operating two sources in the
one centre unit. Thereby, plural listeners are
allowed to enjoy separate audio/visual sources.
The 2-ZONE function allows internal sources
(TUNER, DVD, VISUAL, iPod) and external
sources via CeNET connection (CD changer, TV,
etc.) to be played on MAIN zone and SUB zone.
Controlling sources of MAIN zone and SUB zone
can be made from the main unit and from the
remote control unit.
The source sounds of the MAIN zone are played
back from the speakers of the vehicle side, and
those of the SUB zone are from the headphone
systems (WH143H/WH253H).
Sound volume control on the SUB zone is
performed by the headphone system (WH143H/
WH253H).
Note:
• The TUNER mode cannot be specified for the SUB
zone.
• The 2-ZONE function is disabled when the
following equipments are connected:
• 5.1 channel surround decoder (DVH943N)
• DAB tuner (DAH923)
• The steering wheel remote control operations work
upon the MAIN zone even when the SUB zone is
selected.
• When a voice interrupt of the navigation system
arises during 2-ZONE ON, the sound of the MAIN
zone is muted, and the sound of the SUB zone is
output normally.
When it arises during 2-ZONE OFF, the audio
signals to the 4ch speakers are attenuated, and
the voice from the navigation system is output from
the front two speakers.
• You cannot operate the 2-ZONE function during
the voice interrupt of the navigation system.
• If a mobile phone interrupt arises when an external
equipment is specified for the SUB zone, the 2ZONE function is automatically turned off, and it
does not resume to the 2-ZONE ON status even
when the interruption is finished.

sound quality. This means that about 10 music
CDs can be recorded on a CD-R disc or CD-RW
disc to allow a long listening time without having
to change CDs.

Precautions when creating an MP3
disc
●File extensions
1. Always add a file extension “.MP3” or “.mp3”
to an MP3 file, and “.WMA” or “.wma” to a
WMA file by using single byte letters. If you
add a file extension other than specified or
forget to add these file extension, the file
cannot be played. In addition, if you use upper
case and lower case letters (capital and small
letters) mixedly for file extensions, normal
play may not be possible.
2. Files other than MP3/WMA data cannot be
played.
Playing files with a format not supported will
be skipped, and the scan, random and repeat
playback mode may be cancelled.
●Logical format (File system)
1. When writing an MP3/WMA file on a disc,
please select “ISO9660 level 1 or level 2
(without including expansion format)” as
the writing software format. Normal playback
may not be possible if the disc is recorded on
another format.
2. The folder name and file name can be
displayed as the title during MP3/WMA play
but the title must be within 31 single byte
alphabetical letters and numerals for the
folder name and file name (including an
extension). Entering more letters or numerals
than specified may cause an incorrect
display.
●Folder structure
1. A disc with a folder having more than 8
hierarchical levels will conflict with the
ISO9660 and playback will be impossible.
●Number of files or folders
1. The maximum allowable number of folders is
255 (including root directory); the maximum
allowable number of files is 512 (max. 255 per
folder). This represents the maximum number
of tracks that can be played back.
2. Tracks are played in the order that they were
recorded onto a disc. (Tracks might not
always be played in the order displayed on the
PC.)
• Some noise may occur depending on the
type of encoder software used while
recording.
Note:
• If Tag information was entered with 2-byte
characters, it may occur that the characters are not
reproduced properly on the display.
• MP3/WMA files that the DRM (Digital Rights
Management) function is set cannot be played.
Regarding MP3/WMA folder creation
Up to 8 folder levels (including the root directory)
can be created for MP3/WMA files (items 1 – in
the illustration). However, on this unit, folders
created above the third level will be converted to
2 levels.

About DAB programmes
Seek tuning
The DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) system
transmits several programmes on one frequency
simultaneously, by compressing audio signals.
• A DAB station has multiple programmes on
one frequency.
• The group of programmes, which is transmitted
on a single frequency is called “ensemble”.
• Some DAB stations have several ensembles
and broadcast diversified programmes.
• The number of programmes and the contents
which an ensemble provides depend on the
broadcast stations and times.
Since the DAB programmes are broadcasted
on several different frequencies, the same
programme can be enjoyed over large areas.
• When you turn this unit on and select the DAB
mode, the programme that starts is the one that
was selected before when the power was
turned off. If this programme is not available,
another programme is selected automatically.
• Programmes have their own names, just like
PS on RDS.
1. Press the [BAND] button or touch the [Band]
key to select the desired band (M1, M2 or
M3).
• If “MANU” is displayed at the bottom of the
screen, keep pressing the [BAND] button
more than 1 second.
“MANU” on the screen goes off, and seek
tuning is now available.
Note:
• To improve audio quality, the receiver needs to
tune in to an ensemble. While the receiver is being
tuned in to the ensemble, the Audio outputs are
muted. The tuning time is not fixed.
