If the AC plug of this unit does not match the AC
outlet you want to use, the plug must be removed
and appropriate one fitted. Replacement and
mounting of an AC plug on the power supply cord of
this unit should be performed only by qualified
service personnel. If connected to an AC outlet, the
cut-off plug can cause severe electrical shock. Make
sure it is properly disposed of after removal.
The equipment should be disconnected by removing
the mains plug from the wall socket when left
unused for a long period of time (for example, when
on vacation). D3-4-2-2-1a_A_En
CAUTION
The STANDBY/ON switch on this unit will not
completely shut off all power from the AC outlet.
Since the power cord serves as the main disconnect
device for the unit, you will need to unplug it from
the AC outlet to shut down all power. Therefore,
make sure the unit has been installed so that the
power cord can be easily unplugged from the AC
outlet in case of an accident. To avoid fire hazard,
the power cord should also be unplugged from the
AC outlet when left unused for a long period of time
(for example, when on vacation). D3-4-2-2-2a_A_En
This product is for general household purposes. Any
failure due to use for other than household purposes
(such as long-term use for business purposes in a
restaurant or use in a car or ship) and which
requires repair will be charged for even during the
warranty period. K041_En
POWER-CORD CAUTION
Handle the power cord by the plug. Do not pull out the
plug by tugging the cord and never touch the power
cord when your hands are wet as this could cause a
short circuit or electric shock. Do not place the unit, a
piece of furniture, etc., on the power cord, or pinch the
cord. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it with other
cords. The power cords should be routed such that they
are not likely to be stepped on. A damaged power cord
can cause a fire or give you an electrical shock. Check
the power cord once in a while. When you find it
damaged, ask your nearest PIONEER authorized
service center or your dealer for a replacement. S002*_En

Cautions on use
When moving the player
When moving the player, check first that
there is no disc loaded and that the disc tray
is closed. Then press  STANDBY/ON on
the player (or  STANDBY/ON on the remote
control), wait for the - OFF - indicator on the
front panel display to turn off, then unplug
the power cord. Moving the player with a disc
inside it could result in damage.
Place of installation
	 Choose a stable place near the TV or ste-
reo system being used with the player.
	 Do not place the player on top of a TV or
color monitor. Also install it away from
cassette decks and other devices easily
affected by magnetic forces.
Avoid the following types of places:
	 Places exposed to direct sunlight
	 Humid or poorly ventilated places
	 Extremely hot places
	 Places exposed to vibrations
	 Dusty places
	 Places exposed to soot, steam or heat
(kitchens, etc.)
Do not place objects on the player.
Do not place any objects on top of the player.
Do not obstruct the ventilation holes.
Do not use the player on shaggy rugs, beds,
sofas, etc., or wrapped in cloth, etc. Doing so
will prevent the heat from dispersing, leading
to damage.
Do not expose to heat.
Do not place the player on top of an ampli-
fier or other component that generates heat.
When placing it in a rack, to avoid the heat
given off by the amplifier or other audio
component, place it on a shelf below the
amplifier.

Additional information
Turn off the player’s power
when not using it.
Depending on signal conditions, striped pat-
terns may appear on a TV screen and noise
may enter the sound of radio broadcasts
when the player’s power is on. If this hap-
pens, turn the player’s power off.
About condensation
If the player is moved suddenly from a
cold place into a warm room (in winter, for
example) or if the temperature in the room in
which the player is installed rises suddenly
due to a heater, etc., water droplets (conden-
sation) may form inside (on operating parts
and the lens). When condensation is pres-
ent, the player will not operate properly and
playback is not possible. Let the player stand
at room temperature for 1 or 2 hours with the
power turned on (the time depends on the
extent of condensation). The water droplets
will dissipate and playback will become pos-
sible. Condensation can also occur in the
summer if the player is exposed to the direct
wind from an air-conditioner. If this happens,
move the player to a different place.
Cleaning the product
	 Unplug the power cord from the power
outlet when cleaning the player.
	 Clean the player using a soft cloth. For
tough dirt, apply some neutral detergent
diluted in 5 to 6 parts water to a soft cloth,
wring out thoroughly, wipe off the dirt,
then wipe again with a soft, dry cloth.
	 Alcohol, thinner, benzene, insecticides,
etc., could cause the print or paint to peel
off. Also, leaving rubber or vinyl products
in contact with the player for long periods
of time could mar the cabinet.
	 When using chemical-impregnated
wipes, etc., read the cautions included
with the wipes carefully.
Caution for when the unit is
installed in a rack with a glass
door
Do not press  OPEN/CLOSE on the remote
control to open the disc tray while the glass
door is closed. The door will hamper the
movement of the disc tray, and the unit could
be damaged.
Cleaning the lens
The player’s lens should not become dirty in
normal use, but if for some reason it should
malfunction due to dust or dirt, consult your
nearest Pioneer authorized service center.
Although lens cleaners for players are com-
mercially available, we advise against using
them since some may damage the lens.

Additional information
Cleaning discs
	 Discs may not play if there are finger-
prints or dust on them. In this case, use
a cleaning cloth, etc., to gently wipe the
disc from the inside towards the outside.
Do not use dirty cleaning cloths.
	 Do not use benzene, thinner or other
volatile chemicals. Also do not use record
spray or antistatic agents.
	 For tough dirt, apply some water to a soft
cloth, wring out thoroughly, wipe off the
dirt, then wipe off the moisture with a dry
cloth.
	 Do not use damaged (cracked or warped)
discs.
	 Do not let the signal surface of discs get
scratched or dirty.
	 Do not place two discs in the disc tray,
one on top of the other.
	 Do not attach pieces of paper or stick-
ers to discs. Doing so could warp discs,
making it impossible to play them. Also
note that rental discs often have labels
attached to them, and the label’s glue
may have oozed out. Check that there is
no glue around the edges of such labels
before using rented discs.
About specially shaped discs
Specially shaped discs (heart-shaped, hexag-
onal, etc.) cannot be played on this player. Do
not attempt to play such discs, as they could
damage the player.
About condensation on discs
Water droplets (condensation) may form on
the surface of discs if they are moved from
a cold place (particularly in winter) into a
warm room. Discs may not play normally if
there is condensation on them. Carefully wipe
the water droplets off the surface of the disc
before loading it.
