4.Follow Instructions - All operating and use instructions should be followed.

5.Cleaning - Unplug this product from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.

EXCEPTION: A product that is meant for uninterrupted service and, that for some specific reason, such as the possibility of the loss of an authorization code for a CATV converter, is not intended to be unplugged by the user for cleaning or any other purpose, may exclude the reference to unplugging the appliance in the cleaning description otherwise required in item 5.

6.Attachments - Do not use attachments not recommended by the product manufacturer as they may cause hazards.

7.Water and MoistureDo not use this product near water, for example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, and the like.

8.Accessories - Do not place this product on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The product may fall, causing serious injury to a child or adult, and serious damage to the appliance. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer, or sold with the product. Any mounting of the appliance should follow the

manufacturer's instructions and should use a mounting accessory

recommended by the manufacturer. An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn.

9.Ventilation - Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect it from overheating, and these openings must not be blocked or covered. The openings should never be blocked by placing the product on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This product should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer's instructions have been adhered to.

10.Power Sources - This product should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supply

to your home, consult your appliance dealer or local power company. For products intended to operate from battery power, or other sources, refer to the operating instructions.

11.Grounding or Polarization - This product is equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.

12.Power Cord Protection - Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the appliance.

13.Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/

NFPA No. 70, provides information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

Maintenance

SERVICING

Please refer to relevant topics on “Troubleshooting” on pages 71-74 before returning the product.

If this unit becomes inoperative, do not try to correct the problem by yourself. There are no userserviceable parts inside. Turn off, unplug the power plug and please call our help line mentioned on the front page to locate an Authorized Service Center.

CLEANING THE CABINET

Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use a solution containing alcohol, spirits, ammonia or abrasive.

CLEANING DISCS

When a disc becomes dirty, clean it with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the center to out. Do not wipe in a circular motion.

Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners, detergent, abrasive cleaning agents or antistatic spray intended for analogue records.

CLEANING THE DISC LENS

If this unit still does not perform properly although you refer to the relevant sections and to “Troubleshooting” in this Owner’s Manual, the laser optical pickup unit may be dirty. Consult your dealer or an Authorized Service Center for inspection and cleaning of the laser optical pickup unit.

DISC HANDLING

Handle the discs so that fingerprints and dust do not adhere to the surfaces of the discs.

Always store the disc in its protective case when it is not used.

IR SIGNAL CHECK

If the remote control does not work properly, you can test if the remote control sends out the infrared signal with AM radio or a digital camera (including built-in camera of cellular phone). It will help to define the cause of malfunction.

With an AM radio:

Tune an AM radio to a station with no broadcasting. Press a button on remote control toward the radio. Sound will be fluttering when you press any key and the radio receives the signal. This means the remote control unit is working.

With a digital camera (including built-in camera of cellular phone):

Direct a digital camera to remote control, press and hold a button on remote control. If infrared light appears through digital camera, the remote is working.

Dolby Digital Recording

“Dolby® Digital Recording enables consumers to record high-quality video with stereo sound on recordable DVD discs. The technology, when utilized instead of PCM recording, also saves recordable disc space, allowing for higher video resolution or extended recording time on each DVD. DVDs created using Dolby Digital Recording will play back on all DVD-Video players.”

Note: This is true when the players are compatible with actual recordable DVD discs.

The recording time are estimates and actual recording time may differ.

The audio and video quality is getting poorer as the Recording time becomes longer.

Each time [REC MODE] is pressed, recording mode and its allowed recording time will be displayed.

Note

This recorder cannot record CD-R or CD-RW discs.

DVD+RW/R, DVD-RW/R and CD-RW/R discs recorded on a personal computer or a DVD or CD recorder may not play if the disc is damaged or dirty or if there is dirt of condensation on the player’s lens.

If you record a disc using a personal computer, even if it is recorded in a compatible format, there are cases in which it may not play because of the settings of the application software used to create the disc. (Check with the software publisher for more detailed information.)

DVD-RW/R discs recorded in Video mode cannot be recorded additionally using the unit.

Since the recording is made by the variable bit rate (VBR) method, depending on the picture you are recording, the actual remaining time for recording may be a little shorter than the remaining time displayed on the OSD.

You cannot record copy-protected video using this unit. (Copy-protected video includes DVDVideo discs and some satellite broadcasts.)

You cannot record videos that includes “copyonce only” signal.
