Notes on Handling
Suitable Locations for the System
• Install the System in a location with adequate ventilation to
prevent internal heat build-up in the System.
• Install in a place which is level, dry and neither too hot nor
too cold—between 5°C and 35°C.
• Leave sufficient distance between the System and the TV.
Precautions
Power sources
• When unplugging the System from the wall outlet, always
pull on the plug, not the AC power cord.
• If you are not going to operate the System for an extended
period of time, unplug the AC power cord from the wall
outlet.
Internal heat
• Make sure there is good ventilation around the System.
Poor ventilation could cause the System to overheat and
become damaged.
Others
• Should any metallic object or liquid fall into the System,
unplug the AC power cord and consult your dealer before
operating any further.
If anything goes wrong, unplug the AC power cord and
consult your dealer.
Condensation
Moisture may condense on the lenses inside the System in
the following cases:
• After starting to heat the room
• In a damp room
• If the System is brought directly from a cold place into a
warm place.
Should this occur, the System may malfunction. In this case,
leave the System turned on for a few hours until the moisture
evaporates, unplug the AC power cord, then plug it in again.
Maintenance
To get the best performance out of the System, keep your
discs and the mechanism clean.
Cleaning the System
• Stains should be wiped off with a soft cloth. If the System
is heavily stained, wipe it with a cloth soaked in water-
diluted neutral detergent and wrung well, then wipe clean
with a dry cloth.
• Since the System may deteriorate in quality, become
damaged or get its paint peeled off, be careful about the
following:
– DO NOT wipe it with a hard cloth.
– DO NOT wipe it forcefully.
– DO NOT wipe it with thinner or benzine.
– DO NOT apply any volatile substances such as
insecticides to it.
– DO NOT allow any rubber or plastic to remain in contact
for a long time.
Handling discs
• Remove the disc from its case by holding it at the edge
while pressing the center hole lightly.
• Do not touch the shiny surface of the disc, or bend the disc.
• Put the disc back in its case after use to prevent warping.
• Be careful not to scratch the surface of the disc when
placing it back in its case.
• Avoid exposure to direct sunlight, extreme temperature,
and moisture.
To clean the disc:
Wipe the disc with a soft cloth in a straight line from center
to edge.
DO NOT install the System in a location near
heat sources, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust or vibration.
DO NOT handle the AC power cord with wet
hands.
DO NOT block the ventilation openings or
holes. If they are blocked by a newspaper or
cloth, etc., the heat may not be able to get out.
DO NOT disassemble the System since there
are no user serviceable parts inside.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
“SOME DOS AND DON’TS ON THE SAFE USE OF EQUIPMENT”
This equipment has been designed and manufactured to meet international safety standards but, like any
electrical equipment, care must be taken if you are to obtain the best results and safety is to be assured.
Do read the operating instructions before you attempt to use the equipment.
Do ensure that all electrical connections (including the mains plug, extension leads and interconnections
between pieces of equipment) are properly made and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Switch off and withdraw the mains plug when making or changing connections.
Do consult your dealer if you are ever in doubt about the installation, operation or safety of your equipment.
Do be careful with glass panels or doors on equipment.
DON’T continue to operate the equipment if you are in any doubt about it working normally, or if it is damaged
in any way—switch off, withdraw the mains plug and consult your dealer.
DON’T remove any fixed cover as this may expose dangerous voltages.
DON’T leave equipment switched on when it is unattended unless it is specifically stated that it is designed
for unattended operation or has a standby mode.
Switch off using the switch on the equipment and make sure that your family know how to do this.
Special arrangements may need to be made for infirm or handicapped people.
DON’T use equipment such as personal stereos or radios so that you are distracted from the requirements of
traffic safety. It is illegal to watch television whilst driving.
DON’T listen to headphones at high volume as such use can permanently damage your hearing.
DON’T obstruct the ventilation of the equipment, for example with curtains or soft furnishings.
Overheating will cause damage and shorten the life of the equipment.
DON’T use makeshift stands and NEVER fix legs with wood screws—to ensure complete safety always fit the
manufacturer’s approved stand or legs with the fixings provided according to the instructions.
DON’T allow electrical equipment to be exposed to rain or moisture.
ABOVE ALL
– NEVER let anyone, especially children, push anything into holes, slots or any other opening in the
case —this could result in a fatal electrical shock.
– NEVER guess or take chances with electrical equipment of any kind—it is better to be safe than
sorry!
