INSIDE THE UNIT.

CAUTION: Proper Ventilation

To avoid risk of electric shock and fire, and to prevent damage, locate the apparatus as follows:

1.Front: No obstructions and open spacing.

2.Sides/Top/Back: No obstructions should be placed in the areas shown by the dimensions below.

3.Bottom: Place on the level surface. Maintain an adequate air path for ventilation by placing on a stand with a height of 10 cm or more.

cloth, etc., the heat may not be able to get out.)

• Do not place any naked flame sources, such as lighted

candles, on the apparatus.

• When discarding batteries, environmental problems

must be considered and local rules or laws governing the

disposal of these batteries must be followed strictly.

• Do not expose this apparatus to rain, moisture, dripping

or splashing and that no objects filled with liquids, such as

vases, shall be placed on the apparatus.

CAUTION:

Excessive sound pressure from earphones or headphones can cause hearing loss.

CAUTION

Battery shall not be exposed to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire or the like.

[European Union only]

When you are away on travel or otherwise for an extended period of time, remove the plug from the wall outlet.

When unplugging the System from the wall outlet, always pull the plug, not the power cord.

Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.

Disconnect the power cord before cleaning the System or moving the System.

Do not alter, twist or pull the power cord, or put anything heavy on it, which may cause fire, electric shock, or other accidents.

If the cord is damaged, consult a dealer and have the power cord replaced with a new one.

Avoid moisture, water, dust, and high temperatures

Do not place the System in moist or dusty places.

If water gets inside the System, turn off the power and remove the plug from the wall outlet, then consult your dealer. Using the System in this state may cause a fire or electrical shock.

Do not expose the System to direct sunlight or place it near a heating device.

Notes on installation

Select a place which is level, dry and neither too hot nor too cold—between 5˚C and 35˚C.

Do not install the System in a place subject to vibrations.

Do not put heavy objects on the System.

To prevent malfunction or damage of the System

Do not insert any metallic objects, such as wires, hairpins, coins, etc. into the System.

Do not block the vents.

There are no user-serviceable parts inside. If anything goes wrong, unplug the power cord and consult your dealer.

Mains (AC) Line Instruction (not applicable for Australia and Hong Kong)

Main unit (rear view)

CAUTION for mains (AC) line

BEFORE PLUGGING IN, do check that your mains (AC) line voltage corresponds with the position of the voltage selector switch provided on the outside of this equipment and, if different, reset the voltage selector switch, to prevent from a damage or risk of fire/electric shock.

Display Demonstration

When you plug in the System, the display demonstration automatically starts. To cancel the display demonstration, press and hold DEMO until “DEMO CLR” is displayed while the System is on standby.

When the ECO Mode is activated, the display demonstration does not work (and you cannot deactivate it).

When the display demonstration is activated, it also starts if no operation is done for about 2 minutes while the System is turned on.

Using Headphones

Be sure to turn down the volume before connecting or putting on the headphones.

Connecting the headphones will deactivate the speakers.

Sound adjustments also affect the sound through the headphones.

NOTE:

DO NOT turn off (standby) the System with the volume set to an extremely high level; otherwise, the sudden blast of sound can damage your hearing, speakers and headphones when you turn on the System or start playback.

The operations on pages 4 to 6 are explained using the remote control, unless mentioned otherwise. However, if the System has the same or similar button names, they can also be used for the operations.

NOTES:

Make sure the antenna conductors do not touch any other terminals, connecting cords and power cord. Also, keep the antennas away from metallic parts of the System, connecting cords, and the AC power cord. This could cause poor reception.

Make sure both the speakers are connected correctly and firmly.

When connecting the speaker cords, match the polarity of the speaker terminals: red color to (+) and black color to (–).

DO NOT connect more than one speaker to each terminal.

DO NOT allow the conductor of the speaker cords to be in touch with the metallic parts of the System.

When connecting with a USB cable, use the USB 2.0 cable whose length is less than 1 m.

USB mass storage class device is charged through the USB MEMORY REC/PLAY terminal except when set to ECO Mode. Some USB mass storage class device may be charged through the USB terminal only when “USB” is selected as the source.

You cannot connect a computer to the USB MEMORY REC/PLAY terminal of the System.

Do not disconnect the USB mass storage class device while playing back a file. It may cause malfunction of both this System and the device.

Noise and static electricity may stop the USB mass storage class device sound. In this case, disconnect and connect the USB mass storage class device again after turning off the System.

Prohibiting Disc Ejection (on the System only)

You can lock the disc tray so that no one can eject the loaded disc while the System is on standby.

Press these buttons for 2 seconds while the System is on standby.

To cancel the prohibition, repeat the same procedure.

NOTES:

If no disc is inserted or no USB mass storage class device is connected, “NO DISC” or “NO USB” appears on the main display.

If MP3/WMA files are not recorded on the disc or in the USB mass storage class device, “NO PLAY” or “NO DATA” appears on the main display.

RESUME Play

Press RESUME to activate RESUME Play so that the RESUME indicator lights up. When you stop the playback by one of the following operations, “RESUME” appears and this System stores the beginning of the stopped track on the disc or USB mass storage class device.

Pressing 7 once

Changing the source

When you start playback again, playback starts from the beginning of the stopped track.

To clear the memory, open the disc tray, disconnect the USB mass storage class device or press 7 twice.

• When you clear the memory and start playback, playback starts from the first track.

To deactivate RESUME Play, press RESUME again.
