WARNING

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS APPLIANCE TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.

Explanation of Graphical Symbols:

The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated "dangerous voltage" within the product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.

The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the appliance.

PRECAUTIONS

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

Important

This system is designed for the NTSC color systems only.

Installation

1Water and moisture — Do not use this system near water, such as near a bathtub, sink, swimming pool, or the like.

2Heat — Do not use this system near sources of heat, including heating vents, stoves, or other appliances that generate heat. This system should not be placed in temperatures less than 5˚C (41˚F) or greater than 35˚C (95˚F).

3Mounting place — Place the system:

-on a flat , even surface

-away from strong magnetic fields

-at least one meter away from any radios or receivers Do not place heavy objects on the system.

4Ventilation — The system should be situated with adequate space around it so that proper heat ventilation is assured. Allow a clearance of 10 cm (4 in.) from the rear and the top of the system, and 5 cm (2 in.) from each side.

2 ENGLISH

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

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

-To avoid internal heat build-up,do not cover the ventilation openings on the rear panel.

5Foreign objects and liquid — Be careful that foreign objects or liquid do not enter the system through the ventilation openings.

6Carts and stands — The system should

be moved with care when placed or mounted on a stand or cart.

Sudden stops, excessive force, or an uneven surface may cause the system or cart to fall over.

7Condensation — Moisture may form on the pickup lens when:

-This system is moved from a cold spot to a warm spot

-A heating system has just been turned on

-The system is used in a very humid room

-The system is cooled by an air conditioner

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

Electric power

1Power sources — Connect this system only to power sources specified in the Operating Instructions, and as marked on the system.

2AC 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 electrical shock.

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

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

3When not in use — Unplug the AC power cord from the AC outlet if the system will not be used for several months or more. When the cord is plugged in, a small electrical current continues to flow into the system, even if the power is turned off.

4In case of lightning — Immediately disconnect the AC power cord from the AC outlet.

Maintenance

Clean the system only as recommended in the Operating Instructions.

Damage requiring service

Have this system serviced by a qualified service technician if:

-The AC power cord or plug has been damaged

-A foreign object or liquid has entered the system

-The system has been exposed to rain or water

-The system does not seem to operate normally

-The system exhibits a marked change in performance

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

BEFORE USE (CONTINUED)

Handling discs

Do not touch the playback side of the disc.

Hold the disc by the edges so that fingerprints will not get on the surface.

Do not stick paper or tape on the disc.

Cleaning discs

Fingerprints and dust on the disc can cause poor picture quality and sound distortion. Before playing, clean the disc with a clean cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out.

Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol, benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners, or anti-staticspray intended for analog records.

Storing discs

After playing, store the disc in its case.

Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or sources of heat, or leave it in a parked car exposed to direct sunlight, as there may be a considerable temperature increase inside the car.

Handling the system

When shipping the system

The original shipping carton and packing materials come in handy. For maximum protection, repack the system as it was originally packed at the factory.

When installing the system

The picture and sound of a nearby TV, VCR, or radio may be distorted during playback. In this case, position the system away from the TV, VCR, or radio, or turn off the system after removing the disc.

To keep the surface clean

Do not use volatile liquids, such as insecticide spray, near the system. Do not leave rubber or plastic products in contact with the system for a long period of time. They will leave marks on the surface.

Cleaning the system

To clean the cabinet

Use a soft, dry cloth. If the surfaces are extremely dirty, use a soft cloth lightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use strong solvents, such as alcohol, benzine, or thinner, as these might damage the surface of the system.

To clean the pickup lens

Use a cotton swab slightly moistened with cleaning fluid.

Wipe gently from the center to the edge.
