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 Center for repairing.

DO NOT MIX NEW BATTERIES WITH OLD BATTERIES. INSERT WITH THE CORRECT BATTERY POLARITY.

When inserting the batteries, be sure to observe proper polarity (+ and –)as instructed. Rupture or chemical leakage from the battery may cause fire or personal injury.

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 disc 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.

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.

3-EN

WARNING

PRECAUTIONS

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.

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 so you will not leave fingerprints on the surface. Do not affix tape, paper, or gummed labels to the disc. Do not write on the disc.

CORRECT

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 Disc from jamming, the DVD 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.

Disc Cleaning

Fingerprints, dust, or soil on the surface of the disc could cause the DVD 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.

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 the disc to be out of standard specifications and may create operational problems. We recommend not using these accessories on discs played in Alpine DVD players.

Tips for making your own CDs

The DVA-7996Rplays DVD Video, Video CD, Audio CD and has a built in MP3 decoder.

The following information is designed to help you create your own music CDs (either Audio CD or MP3 encoded CD-R/RWfiles).

What is the difference between an Audio and MP3 CD? An Audio CD is the same format as the commercial CDs you buy in the store (also known as CD-DA). MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3) is a data file that uses a compression scheme to reduce the size of the music file.*

Hybrid Audio CD and Data (MP3) CD-R/RWdiscs:The DVA7996R can read either sector on the disc. Choose MixDisc CD to play the CD audio section or MixDisc MP3 to play the MP3 section.*

Multisession CD-R/RW: Once a recording has been stopped, this is considered one session. If the disc is not closed (finalized), additional data may be added. Once this additional data has been recorded, this becomes a “multisession” CD. TheDVA-7996Rcan only read multisession DATA Formatted discs (MP3 files - Not Audio CD files).

MP3 ID3 Tag Information: TheDVA-7996Rread and displays MP3 ID3v1 tag information. MP3 files created with ID3v2 tag information can be played back but the tag info cannot be read or displayed.

Properly formatted MP3 Discs: UseISO-9660formatting to insure proper playback. You may use standard ISO naming Level 1 (8.3 DOS standard), Level 2 (32 characters) or Joliet, (Windows or Macintosh long filenames) file naming conventions.*

*Please consult the Owner’s manual for additional information.

On handling Compact Discs (CD/CD-R/CD-RW)

Do not touch the surface.

Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight.

Do not affix stickers or labels and do not write on the surface.

Clean the disc when it is dusty.

Make sure that there are no bumps around the disc.

Do not use commercially available disc accessories.

Do not leave the disc in the car or the unit for a long time. Never expose the disc to direct sunlight. Heat and humidity may damage the disc and you may not be able to play it again.

• Discs that cannot be played

DVD-ROMs,DVD-R/DVD-RAMs,DVD-RWs,DVD+RWs,CD-ROMs(excluding MP3 files), photo CDs, etc.

• DVD region number (playable region number)

This DVD head unit will play back any disc whose region number is 2 (or All). DVDs with a region number other than those listed below, cannot be played on this DVD player.

2 ALL

• Video CDs

This DVD head unit is compatible with playback control (PBC) compatible video CDs (version 2.0).

“PBC” is a function by which you can use menu screens recorded on the disc to find the scene you want to watch and view various types of information in dialog style.

CAUTION

Keep hands (or any other object) away from the display while it is opening or closing to avoid damage or injury. The back of the movable display will get very warm under normal operating conditions. This is not a malfunction. Do not touch.
