Safety
1. Power source—Connect the unit to a power source
of the type described in these instructions or as
marked on the unit.
2. Polarization—The unit is equipped with a polarized
power plug where one blade is wider than the other.
This safety feature ensures that the plug fits into your
household AC outlet only one way. If the plug does-
n’t fit one way, try reversing it. If the plug still doesn’t
fit, contact an electrician to replace the obsolete out-
let. Do not attempt to defeat the safety purpose of
the plug.
3. Power cord protection—Route the AC power sup-
ply cord so that it will not be walked on or pinched by
items placed on or against it. Never take hold of the
plug or cord with wet hands. Always grasp the plug
body firmly when connecting and disconnecting it.
4. Overloading—When connecting the AC power sup-
ply cord, be careful not to overload the household
AC outlet, extension cord, or outlet from any other
device as this can result in fire or electric shock.
5. Nonuse periods—Turn the unit off when it is not in
use. Unplug the unit from the household AC outlet if
it is not to be used for a long time. Unplug the unit
during lightning storms. Leaving the unit connected
to a household AC outlet for extended periods can
cause battery fluid leakage.
6. Attachments and accessories—Use only the at-
tachments and accessories recommended in these
operating instructions.

and devices that generate strong magnetic fields.
3. Stacking—Do not place anything on top of this unit.
4. Wall and ceiling mounting—Do not mount the unit
on walls or ceilings unless specified in the instruc-
tions.
Environment
1. Water and moisture—Do not use the unit near
water, such as near a bathtub or swimming pool.
Avoid damp basements.
2. Heat—Situate the unit away from heat sources, such
as radiators. Do not leave it in an automobile ex-
posed to direct sunlight with the doors and windows
closed as this may deform the cabinet.

aged.
2. Servicing—Do not attempt to service the unit be-
yond that described in these operating instructions.
Refer all other servicing to authorized servicing per-
sonnel.
3. Replacement parts—When parts need replacing
ensure the servicer uses parts specified by the man-
ufacturer or parts that have the same characteristics

Playing MP3 files
What is MP3?
A method of compressing audio, MPEG Audio Layer 3
(MP3) allows audio to be reduced to up to one tenth its
original size when a compression rate of 128 kbps is
used, without overtly hurting audio quality.
When creating MP3 files to play
on this unit
≥Disc formats: ISO9660 level 1 and level 2 (except for
extended formats)
≥Files: MP3 files with the suffix “.mp3” or “.MP3”
≥MP3 files may not be played in the order you recorded
them. Note the following if you want the files to play in
the order you record them.
≥1 Use software that records the files to the disc in file
name order.
≥2 Prefix folder and file names with 3-digit numbers in
the order you want to play them.
≥3 Give the files and folders names with 8 characters
or less, including the 3-digit prefix.
≥4 It is better not to create folders (albums) within fold-
ers (such as shown in example 2).
This unit plays MP3 files in the following order.
Numbers such as 1 show the order folders (albums) and
files (tracks) within them are played.
Example1: Recommended method when creating MP3
discs.
Example2: A disc not created in the recommended way.
≥Play will be in the order shown in the below diagram,
irrespective of folder and track names, so the order of
play in this example will be A#C#G#D, not
A#B#C#D. Folders and files in the same level will
be played in order according to their names.
≥Folders that do not contain MP3 files ( “Falbum” in the
example) are skipped.
Example2
Example1
Limitations on MP3
≥This unit cannot play files if they have a suffix other
than “.mp3” or “.MP3”.
≥This unit cannot play files that have the suffix “.mp3”
or “.MP3” if they are not MP3 files.
≥This unit can display album and track titles with ID3
tags (version 1.0 and 1.1). Titles including text data
the unit doesn’t support cannot be displayed.
≥This unit is compatible with multi-session but if there
are a lot of sessions it takes more time for play to
start. Keep the number of sessions to a minimum to
avoid this.
≥This unit cannot play files recorded using packet write.
.

Anti-Skip System
This system deals with skipping in a variety
of ways:
≥An anti-skip mechanism prevents skipping caused
when play speed changes due to swinging of the unit.
≥A recovery system immediately returns the laser pick-
up to its original position if it is knocked off the track by
a strong shock.
≥The anti-skip memory (maximum 45 seconds when
playing CD-DA and maximum 100 seconds when
playing 128 kbps MP3) fills in interruptions caused by
bumps and vibrations.
The anti-skip system works automatically while the
system is on and cannot be canceled.

Listening caution
Do not play your headphones or earphones at a high
volume. Hearing experts advise against continuous ex-
tended play.
If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume
or discontinue use.
Do not use while operating a motorized vehicle. It may
create a traffic hazard and is illegal in many areas.
You should use extreme caution or temporarily discon-
tinue use in potentially hazardous situations.
Even if your headphones or earphones are the open-air
type designed to let you hear outside sounds, don’t turn
up the volume so high that you can’t hear what’s around
you.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “com-
fort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what
sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to
your hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe
level BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
≥Start your volume control at a low setting.
≥Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it com-
fortably and clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
≥Leave it there.

∫ Selection
As a safety precaution, the portable CD players made
by Panasonic are constructed so it is impossible to
recharge ordinary batteries.
Only batteries especially designed for this unit can be
recharged.
Special rechargeable Ni-Cd batteries:
P-3GAVA/2B (set of 2)

≥If rechargeable battery play time is short after recharg-
ing, the batteries have reached the end of their service
life. Replace them with the recommended replace-
ments.
≥Play time may be shorter than usual after recharging
batteries for the first time or after they have been un-
used for a long time. Repeatedly recharge and dis-
charge the batteries if this occurs to restore them to
normal.
∫ Care
To prevent battery damage, electrolyte leakage and
short-circuiting, heed the following points.
≥Do not peel off the covering on batteries and do not
use if the covering has been peeled off.
≥Align the poles + and - correctly when inserting the
batteries.
≥Do not mix different types or of batteries or old and
new batteries.
