Precautions
Read the Operating Instructions carefully and
completely before operating the unit. Be sure to keep
the Operating Instructions for future reference. All
warnings and cautions in the Operating Instructions and
on the unit should be strictly followed, as well as the
safety suggestions below.
Installation
1 Water and moisture - Do not use this unit near
water, such as near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen
sink, laundry tub, in a wet basement, swimming pool,
or the like.
2 Heat - Do not use this unit near sources of heat,
including heating vents, stoves, or other appliances
that generate heat.
It also should not be placed in temperatures less
than 5°C (41°F) or greater than 35°C (95°F).
3 Mounting surface - Place the unit on a flat, even
surface.
4 Ventilation - The unit should be situated with
adequate space around it so that proper heat
ventilation is assured.
Allow 10 cm (4 in.) clearance from the rear and the
top of the unit and 5 cm (2 in.) from each side.
- Do not place the unit on a bed, rug, or similar
surface that may block the ventilation openings.
- Do not install the unit in a bookcase, cabinet, or
airtight rack where ventilation may be impeded.
5 Objects and liquid entry - Take care that objects or
liquids do not get inside the unit through the
ventilation openings.
6 Carts and stands - When placed or
mounted on a stand or cart, the unit
should be moved with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and
uneven surfaces may cause the unit
or cart to overturn or fall.
7 Condensation - Moisture may form on the CD
pickup lens when:
- The unit is moved from a cold spot to a warm spot
- The heating system has just been turned on
- The unit is used in a very humid room
- The unit is cooled by an air conditioner
When this unit has condensation inside, it may not
function normally. Should this occur, leave the unit
for a few hours, then try to operate again.
8 Wall or ceiling mounting - The unit should not be
mounted on a wall or ceiling, unless specified in the
Operating Instructions.
Electric Power
1 Power sources - Use on batteries or AC house
current, as specified in the Operating Instructions
and marked on the unit.
2 Polarization - As a safety feature, some units are
equipped with polarized AC power plugs which can
only be inserted one way into a power outlet. If it is
difficult or impossible to insert the AC power plug
into an outlet, turn the plug over and try again. If it
still does not easily insert into the outlet, please call
a qualified service technician to service or replace
2
ENGLISH
Specifications
the outlet. To avoid defeating the safety feature of
the polarized plug, do not force it into a power outlet.
3 AC power cord
- When disconnecting the AC power cord, pull it out
by the AC power plug. Do not pull the cord itself.
- Never handle the AC power plug with wet hands,
as this could result in fire or shock.
- Power cords should be firmly secured to avoid
being bent, pinched, or walked upon. Pay
particular attention to the cord from the unit to the
power socket.
- Avoid overloading AC outlets and extension cords
beyond their capacity, as this could result in fire or
shock.
4 Extension cord - To help prevent electric shock, do
not use a polarized AC power plug with an extension
cord, receptacle, or other outlet unless the polarized
plug can be completely inserted to prevent exposure
of the blades of the plug.
5 When not in use - Unplug the AC power cord from
the AC outlet or remove all the batteries if the unit
will not be used for several months or more. When
the cord is plugged in, a small amount of current
continues to flow to the unit, even when the power is
turned off.
