WARNING

WARNING

This symbol means important instructions. Failure to heed them can result in serious injury or death.

DO NOT OPERATE ANY FUNCTION THAT TAKES YOUR ATTENTION AWAY FROM SAFELY DRIVING YOUR VEHICLE.

Any function that requires your prolonged attention should only be performed after coming to a complete stop. Always stop the vehicle in a safe location before performing these functions. Failure to do so may result in an accident.

KEEP THE VOLUME AT A LEVEL WHERE YOU CAN STILL HEAR OUTSIDE NOISE WHILE DRIVING.

Failure to do so may result in an accident.

DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.

Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.

USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.

(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may result in fire, etc.

KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.

Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed, consult a physician immediately.

USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN

REPLACING FUSES.

Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.

DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS.

Doing so may cause heat to build up inside and may result in fire.

USE THIS PRODUCT FOR MOBILE 12V APPLICATIONS.

Use for other than its designed application may result in fire, electric shock or other injury.

DO NOT PLACE HANDS, FINGERS OR FOREIGN OBJECTS IN INSERTION SLOTS OR GAPS.

Doing so may result in personal injury or damage to the product.

CAUTION

This symbol means important instructions. Failure to heed them can result in injury or material property damage.

HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS.

Failure to do so may cause personal injury or damage to the product. Return it to your authorized Alpine dealer or the nearest Alpine Service Centre for repairing.

PRECAUTIONS

Temperature

Be sure the temperature inside the vehicle is between +60°C (+140°F) and –10°C(+14°F) before turning your unit on.

Moisture Condensation

You may notice the CD playback sound wavering due to condensation. If this happens, remove the disc from the player and wait about an hour for the moisture to evaporate.

Damaged Disc

Do not attempt to play cracked, warped, or damaged discs. Playing a bad disc could severely damage the playback mechanism.

Maintenance

If you have problems, do not attempt to repair the unit yourself. Return it to your Alpine dealer or the nearest Alpine Service Station for servicing.

2-EN

Never Attempt the Following

Do not grip or pull out the disc while it is being pulled back into the player by the automatic reloading mechanism.

Do not attempt to insert a disc into the unit when the unit power is off.

Inserting Discs

Your player accepts only one disc at a time for playback. Do not attempt to load more than one disc.

Make sure the label side is facing up when you insert the disc. Your player will automatically eject any disc that is inserted incorrectly. If the player continues to eject a correctly inserted disc, push the Reset switch with a pointed object such as a ballpoint pen.

Playing a disc while driving on a very bumpy road may result in skips, but this will not scratch the disc or damage the player.

New Discs

As a protective measure to prevent the CD from jamming, the CD player will automatically eject discs with irregular surfaces or inserted incorrectly. When a new disc is inserted into the player and ejected after initial loading, using your finger, feel around the inside of the centre hole and outside edge of the disc. If you feel any small bumps or irregularities, this could inhibit proper loading of the disc. To remove the bumps, rub the inside edge of the hole and outside edge of the disc with a ballpoint pen or other such instrument, then insert the disc again.

Irregular Shaped Discs

Be sure to use round shape discs only for this unit and never use any special shape discs.

Use of special shape discs may cause damage to the mechanism.

Installation Location

Make sure this unit will not be installed in a location subjected to:

Direct sun and heat

High humidity and water

Excessive dust

Excessive vibrations

Handling the Detachable Front Panel

Do not expose to rain or water.

Do not drop or apply shock.

Correct Handling

Do not drop the disc while handling. Hold the disc by its edge so that no fingerprints are left on the surface. Do notFR affix tape, paper, or gummed labels to the disc. Do not

write on the disc.

CORRECT

ES

INCORRECT CORRECT

Disc Cleaning

Fingerprints, dust, or soil on the surface of the disc couldDE cause the CD player to skip. For routine cleaning, wipe

the playing surface with a clean, soft cloth from the centre of the disc to the outer edge. If the surface is heavily soiled, dampen a clean, soft cloth in a solution of mild neutral detergent before cleaning the disc.

IT

Disc Accessories

There are various accessories available on the market for protecting the disc surface and improving sound quality. However, most of them will influence the thickness and/or diameter of the disc. Using such accessories can cause theSE disc to be out of standard specifications and may create operational problems. We recommend not using these accessories on discs played in Alpine CD players.

Setting RDS Reception Mode and

Receiving RDS Stations

The RDS (Radio Data System) is a radio information system using the 57 kHz subcarrier of regular FM broadcasts. The RDS allows you to receive a variety of information such as traffic information, station names, and to automatically re-tuneto a stronger transmitter that is broadcasting the same programme.

1 Press theF/SETUP button so that the "FUNC" indicator lights up.

2 Press the1/AF button to activate the RDS mode.

3 Press the gor fbutton to tune in the desired RDS station.

NOTE

When the BAND button is pressed and held for more than 2 seconds while a station name is displayed, the display shows the station frequency for 5 seconds.

4 Press the1/AF button again to deactivate the RDS mode.

5 Press theF/SETUP button to activate the normal mode.

The "FUNC" indicator light goes out.

The "FUNC" indicator light goes out.

4 Make sure that the "FUNC" indicator light goes out, then press thepreset button in which your desired RDS station is preset.

If the preset station's signal is weak, the unit automatically searches and tunes to a stronger station in the AF (Alternative Frequencies) list.

5 If the preset station and the stations in the AF list cannot be received:

Press the same preset button again within 5 seconds to have the unit search for a station in the PI (Programme Identification) list.

If there are still no stations receivable in the area, the unit displays the frequency of the preset station and the preset indicator disappears.

If the signal level of the Regional (Local) station being tuned becomes too weak to receive, press the same preset button to tune in a Regional station in other district.

NOTE

For presetting the RDS stations, refer to the Radio Operation section. The RDS stations can be preset in the F1 and F2 bands only.
