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.

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.

PRECAUTIONS

Product Cleaning

Use a soft dry cloth for periodic cleaning of the product. For more severe stains, please dampen the cloth with water only. Anything else has the chance of dissolving the paint or damaging the plastic.

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.

Continued

3-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.

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 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.

Disc Cleaning

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

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 CD players.

Irregular Shaped Discs

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

Transparent Sheet Disc Stabilizer

any special shape discs.

 

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

“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 dialogue style.

Using compact discs (CD/CD-R/CD-RW)

If you use unspecified compact discs, correct performance cannot be guaranteed.

You can play CD-Rs(CD-Recordable)/CD-RWs(CDReWritable) which have been recorded only on audio devices. You can also playCD-Rs/CD-RWscontaining MP3/WMA formatted audio files.

Some of the following discs may not play on this unit: Flawed discs, discs with fingerprints, discs exposed to extreme temperatures or sunlight (e.g., left in the car or this unit), discs

recorded under unstable conditions, discs on which a recording failed or a re-recordingwas attempted,copy-protectedCDs which do not conform to the audio CD industry standard.

Use discs with MP3/WMA files written in a format compliant with ISO9660 level 1 or level 2. For details, see pages 13 and 14.

To customers using CD-R/CD-RW

If a CD-R/CD-RWcannot be played back, make sure the last recording session was closed (finalized).

Finalize the CD-R/CD-RWif necessary, and attempt playback again.

Tips for making your own CDs

The DVA-9860Rplays DVD Video, Video CD, Audio CD and has a built in MP3/WMA decoder.

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

What is the difference between an Audio and MP3/WMA CD?

An Audio CD is the same format as the commercial CDs you buy in the store (also known as CD-DA).MP3(MPEG-1Audio Layer 3)/WMA (Windows Media Audio) is a data file that uses a compression scheme to reduce the size of the music file.*

Hybrid Audio CD and Data (MP3/WMA) CD-R/RWdiscs:

The DVA-9860Rcan read either sector on the disc. ChooseCD-DAto play the CD audio section or MP3/WMA to play the MP3/WMA section.*

Continued

5-EN

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. The DVA-9860Rcan only read multisession DATA Formatted discs (MP3/WMA files - Not Audio CD files).

Properly formatted MP3/WMA Discs:

Use ISO9660 formatting 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.

Clean the disc when it is dusty.

Make sure that the disc is smooth and flat.

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.

Using DVD-Rs/DVD-RWs

This unit is compatible only with discs recorded in the DVDVideo mode. Discs recorded in the DVD-VRmode cannot be played back.

Note that discs not finalized (processed to enable to play on playback-onlyDVD players) cannot be played on this DVD player.

Some discs may not play back, depending on the recording device. (This unit has a copy protection function. Discs copied illegally will not be played back. Some files recorded by a software using an improper recording system may be recognized as illegally copied.)

In the following cases, the disc may not play on this unit: discs recorded by certain DVD recorders, certain irregular discs, flawed discs, dirty discs, when the pickup lens of this DVD player is dirty, or when moisture condensation has occurred inside the unit.

Be sure to follow all cautions included with your DVD-Rs/DVD-RWsdiscs.

Do not put stickers, seals, or tape on the label side of DVD-Rs/DVD-RWs.

Compared to the regular discs, DVD-Rs/DVD-RWsare more affected by heat, moisture, and direct sunlight. If left in a car, etc., damage may occur and it might not play on this unit.
