CD CARE TIPS

Even though a compact disc is very durable, treat the CD surface with care. We recommend the following precautions:

Do not place anything but a CD in the disc tray. This can damage the drive mechanism.

Do not write on either side of the CD, particularly the non-label

10

side. (Signals are read from the non-labelside.)

Do not store CDs in high-tempera-ture,high-humiditylocations. The CDs might warp.

Keep the CD dry. A water drop can act as a lens and affect the laser beam’s focus.

Always handle a CD by the edges to avoid fingerprints and always keep it in its protective case or sleeve when it is not in use. Fingerprints and scratches on the CD’s surface can prevent the laser beam from correctly reading the digital information. To clean the CD surface, use a CD Cleaner Kit (such as Cat. No. 42-116).

If you move the player from a very cold room to a warmer one, moisture can condense on the pickup lens, preventing proper disc play. If this happens, turn the CD player off then wait 30 minutes before attempting to operate it again.
