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.

DO NOT WATCH VIDEO WHILE DRIVING. Watching the video may distract the driver from looking ahead of the vehicle and cause 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.

USE THIS PRODUCT FOR MOBILE 12V APPLICATIONS. Use for other than its designed application may result in fire, electric shock or other injury.

Precautions

This symbol means important instructions.

Caution

Failure to heed them can result in injury or property damage.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Irregular Shaped Discs

Make sure the discs you use in this unit do not have any irregularities. The outer and inner edges should be round and smooth. Use of irregularly shaped discs may cause damage to the mechanism.

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 ball-pointpen or other such instrument, then insert the disc again.

Installation Location

Make sure the DVA-5205Ewill not be installed in a location subjected to:

Direct sun and heat

High humidity and water

Excessive dust

Excessive vibrations

About DVDs

About DVDs

Music CDs and DVDs have grooves (tracks) in which the digital data is recorded. The data is represented as microscopic pits recorded into the track – these pits are read by a laser beam to play the disc. On DVDs, the density of the tracks and pits is twice that of CDs, so DVDs can contain more data in less space.

Moreover, DVDs offer a variety of functions.

• Multiple audio* (page 19)

Movies can be recorded in up to eight languages. The desired language can be selected from the remote control unit.

Subtitles function* (page 20)

Movies can include subtitles in up to 32 languages. The desired subtitle language can be selected from the remote control unit.

Multi angle function* (page 20)

When the DVD contains a movie shot from multiple angles, the desired angle can be selected from the remote control unit.

• Multi story function*

With this function, a single movie includes various story lines. You can select different story lines to view various versions of the same movie.

Operation differs from disc to disc. Story line selection screens including instructions appear during the movie. Just follow the instructions.

Note: * The functions audio languages, subtitle languages, angles, etc., differ from disc to disc. For details, refer to the disc’s instructions.

A 12 cm disc can contain one movie or about four hours of music.

In addition, DVDs provide sharp picture quality with vivid colors thanks to a horizontal resolution of over 500 lines (compared to less than 300 for VHS tape). With the addition of an optional, digital audio processor (PXA-H510),you can recreate the power and presence of a movie theater with Dolby Digital5.1-channelSurround.
