Warning: Stop the car before operating the unit. Caution: Adjust the volume so that you can hear sounds outside the car. Driving with the volume too high may cause an accident. Avoid using the USB device or iPod/iPhone if it might hinder driving safety. Caution on volume setting: Digital devices (CD/USB) produce very little noise compared with other sources. Lower the volume before playing these digital sources to avoid damaging the speakers by the sudden increase of the output level. Temperature inside the car: If you have parked the car for a long time in hot or cold weather, wait until the temperature in the car becomes normal before operating the unit. Condensation: When the car is air-conditioned, moisture may collect on the laser lens. This may cause disc read errors. In this case, remove the disc and wait for the moisture to evaporate. How to reset your unit Your preset adjustments will also be erased. How to forcibly eject a disc (Hold) Be careful not to drop the disc when it ejects. If this does not work, reset your unit.
