IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (CONTINUED)

Dear Customer:

Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.

Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.

To establish a safe level:

• Start your volume control at a low setting.

• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.

Once you have established a comfortable sound level:

• Set the dial and leave it there.

Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.

We Want You Listening For A Lifetime

Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since hearing damage from loud noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection.

PRECAUTIONS

NOTES ON HANDLING:

• When shipping the DVD player, always use the original shipping carton and packing materials. For maximum protection, repack the unit as it was originally packed at the factory.

• Do not use volatile liquids, such as insect spray, near the DVD player. Do not leave rubber or plastic products in contact with the DVD player for a long time. They will leave marks on the finish.

• The top and rear panels of the DVD player may become warm after a long period of use. This is normal and not a malfunction.

• When the DVD player is not in use, be sure to remove the disc and turn off the power.

• If you do not use the DVD player for a long period, the unit may not function properly in the future. Turn on and use the DVD player occasionally.

NOTES ON LOCATING THE DVD PLAYER:

• When you place this DVD player near a TV, radio or

VCR, the playback picture may become poor and the sound may be distorted. In this case, move the DVD player away from the TV, radio or VCR.

NOTES ON CLEANING:

Use a soft, dry cloth for cleaning.

• For stubborn dirt, soak the cloth in a weak detergent solution, wring well and wipe. Use a dry cloth to wipe it dry. Do not use any type of solvent, such as thinner or benzene, as they may damage the surface of the DVD player.

• If you use a chemical-saturatedcloth to clean the unit, follow that product’s instructions.

Warning: Cleaning and adjustment of lenses and/or other components of playback mechanism should be performed by a qualified service technician.

TO OBTAIN A CLEAR PICTURE:

The DVD player is a high technology, precision device. If the opticalpick-uplens and disc drive parts are dirty or worn down, the picture quality becomes poor. To obtain a clear picture, we recommend regular inspection and maintenance (cleaning or parts replacement) every 1,000 hours of use depending onthe operating environment. For details, contact your nearest dealer.

NOTES ON MOISTURE

CONDENSATION:

Moisture condensation damages the DVD player. Please read the following carefully.

• Moisture condensation occurs, for example, when you pour a cold drink into a glass on a warm day. Drops of water form on the outside of the glass. In the same way, moisture may condense on the optical pick-uplens inside this unit, one of the most crucial internal parts of the

DVD player.

Moisture condensation occurs during the following cases:

• When you bring the DVD player directly from a cold place to a warm place.

• When you use the DVD player in a room where you just turned on the heater, or a place where the cold wind from the air conditioner directly hits the unit.

• In summer, when you use the DVD player in a hot and humid place just after you moved the unit from an air conditioned room.

• When you use the DVD player in a humid place.

Do not use the DVD player when moisture condensation may occur.

• If you use the DVD player in such a situation, it may damage discs and internal parts. Remove the disc, insert the small end of the AC adapter into the DC IN jack on the side of the unit and insert the other end into a conveniently located

AC outlet having 120 AC, 60 Hz, turn on the DVD player and leave it “ON” for two or three hours. After two or three hours, the DVD player will have warmed up and evaporated any moisture. Keep the DVD player connected to the wall outlet and moisture condensation will seldom occur.

CAUTION:

To reduce the risk of injury, only charge with supplied rechargeable batteries; other types of batteries may burst causing personal injury or damage.
