guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try
to correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
– Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Precautions
This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits set out in the EMC Directive
using a connection cable shorter than 3 metres.
On placement
• Place the player in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the player.
• Do not place the player on a soft surface such as
a rug that might block the ventilation holes.
• Do not install this player in a confined space, such
as a bookshelf or similar unit.
• Do not place the player in a location near heat
sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight,
excessive dust, or mechanical shock.
• Do not place the player outdoors, in vehicles, on
ships, or on other vessels.
• If the player is brought directly from a cold to a
warm location, or is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the lenses inside the
player. Should this occur, the player may not
operate properly. In this case, remove the disc and
leave the player turned on for about half an hour
until the moisture evaporates.
• Do not install the player in an inclined position. It
is designed to be operated in a horizontal position
only.
• Do not place heavy or unstable objects on the
player.
• Do not place any objects other than discs on the
disc tray. Doing so may cause damage to the
player or the object.
• Take out any discs when you move the player. If
you don’t, the disc may be damaged.
• Disconnect the AC power cord and all other
cables from the player when you move the player.
On power sources
• The player is not disconnected from the AC
power source as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the player itself has been turned off.
• Disconnect the player from the wall outlet if you
are not going to use the player for a long time. To
disconnect the AC power cord, grasp the plug
itself; never pull the cord.
• Observe following points to prevent the AC
power cord being damaged. Do not use the AC
power cord if it is damaged, as doing so may
result in an electric shock or fire.
– Do not pinch the AC power cord between the
player and wall, shelf, etc.
– Do not put anything heavy on the AC power
cord or pull on the AC power cord itself.
On adjusting volume
Do not turn up the volume while listening to a
section with very low level inputs or no audio
signals. Your ears and the speakers may be
damaged when the sound level reaches the peak.
On cleaning
Clean the cabinet, panel, and controls with a soft
cloth. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring
powder or solvent such as alcohol or benzine.
On cleaning discs, disc/lens cleaners
Do not use cleaning discs or disc/lens cleaners
(including wet or spray types). These may cause the
apparatus to malfunction.
On replacement of parts
In the events that this player is repaired, repaired
parts may be collected for reuse or recycling
purposes.
