Precautions

Read the Operating Instructions carefully and completely before operating the unit. Be sure to keep the Operating Instructions for future reference. All warnings and cautions in the Operating Instructions and on the unit should be strictly followed, as well as the safety suggestions below.

Installation

1Water and moisture - Do not use this unit near water, such as near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, in a wet basement, swimming pool, or the like.

2Heat - Do not use this unit near sources of heat, including heating vents, stoves, or other appliances that generate heat.

It also should not be placed in temperatures less than 5°C (41°F) or greater than 35°C (95°F).

3Mounting surface - Place the unit on a flat, even surface.

4Ventilation - The unit should be situated with adequate space around it so that proper heat ventilation is assured.

Allow 20 cm (7 7/8 in.) clearance from the top, 10 cm (4 in.) from the rear, and 5 cm (2 in.) from each side of the unit.

-Do not place the unit on a bed, rug, or similar surface that may block the ventilation openings.

-Do not install the unit in a bookcase, cabinet, or airtight rack where ventilation may be impeded.

5Objects and liquid entry - Take care that objects or liquids do not get inside the unit through the ventilation openings.

6Carts and stands - When placed or mounted on a stand or cart, the unit

should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and

uneven surfaces may cause the unit or cart to overturn or fall.

7Condensation - Moisture may form on the CD pickup lens when:

-The unit is moved from a cold spot to a warm spot

-The heating system has just been turned on

-The unit is used in a very humid room

-The unit is cooled by an air conditioner

When this unit has condensation inside, it may not function normally. Should this occur, leave the unit for a few hours, then try to operate again.

8Wall or ceiling mounting - The unit should not be mounted on a wall or ceiling, unless specified in the Operating Instructions.

Electric Power

1Power sources - Use on batteries or AC house current, as specified in the Operating Instructions and marked on the unit.

2Polarization - As a safety feature, some units are equipped with polarized AC power plugs which can only be inserted one way into a power outlet. If it is difficult or impossible to insert the AC power plug into an outlet, turn the plug over and try again. If it still does not easily insert into the outlet, please call

a qualified service technician to service or replace the outlet. To avoid defeating the safety feature of the polarized plug, do not force it into a power outlet.

3AC power cord

-When disconnecting the AC power cord, pull it out by the AC power plug. Do not pull the cord itself.

-Never handle the AC power plug with wet hands, as this could result in fire or shock.

-Power cords should be firmly secured to avoid being bent, pinched, or walked upon. Pay particular attention to the cord from the unit to the power socket.

-Avoid overloading AC outlets and extension cords beyond their capacity, as this could result in fire or shock.

4Extension cord - To help prevent electric shock, do not use a polarized AC power plug with an extension cord, receptacle, or other outlet unless the polarized plug can be completely inserted to prevent exposure of the blades of the plug.

5When not in use - Unplug the AC power cord from the AC outlet or remove all the batteries if the unit will not be used for several months or more. When the cord is plugged in, a small amount of current continues to flow to the unit, even when the power is turned off.

Maintenance

Clean the unit only as recommended in the Operating Instructions.

Damage Requiring Service

Have the units serviced by a qualified service technician if:

-The AC power cord or plug has been damaged

-Foreign objects or liquid have got inside the unit

-The unit has been exposed to rain or water

-The unit does not seem to operate normally

-The unit exhibits a marked change in performance

-The unit has been dropped, or the cabinet has been damaged

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SERVICE THE UNIT YOURSELF.
