do not get inside the unit.
• Take care not to drop the unit or subject it
to strong shocks.
• To keep dust from the pickup lens, keep
the disc holder closed after use. Never

PRECAUTIONS
English
Note on condensation
If the unit is suddenly moved from a cold
place to a warm one, it may result in
condensation on the pickup lens causing
malfunction or playback difficulties.
Should this occur, leave the unit for a few
hours, then try playback again.
Note on handling MD → A
Since MDs come in a cartridge a which
protects the discs inside from fingerprints
and dust, you do not have to be overly
careful when handling them.
However, soiled or damaged cartridges
can lead to malfunctions in the unit.
Observe the following tips when handling
MDs.
• Keep a cartridge in the attached case.
• Do not open the shutter b of the cartridge
to touch the disc c directly. If the disc
inside becomes soiled, it is very difficult to
clean. The cartridge can also be damaged.
• Close the shutter if it opens while handling
or ejecting a disc. Otherwise dust may
enter or a disc may become scratched.
To clean the cabinet
Use a soft cloth lightly moistened with a
detergent solution.
Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol,
benzine or thinner.
