D8-10-4*_C1_En

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.

Decibel

Level Example

30 Quiet library, soft whispers

40 Living room, refrigerator, bedroom away from traffic

50 Light traffic, normal conversation, quiet office

60 Air conditioner at 20 feet, sewing machine

70 Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, noisy restaurant

80Average city traffic, garbage disposals, alarm clock at two feet.

THE FOLLOWING NOISES CAN BE DANGEROUS UNDER CONSTANT EXPOSURE

90 Subway, motorcycle, truck traffic, lawn mower

100 Garbage truck, chain saw, pneumatic drill

120 Rock band concert in front of speakers, thunderclap

140 Gunshot blast, jet plane

180 Rocket launching pad

About discs created on computers

Depending on the application settings and the computer’s environmental settings, it may not be possible to play certain discs. Record the disc in a format supported on this unit. For details, contact your application’s retailer.

If the recording quality is poor due to the disc’s properties, scratches or dirt on the disc or dirt on the recording lens, it may not be possible to play the disc.

Creating backup discs

When CD-R/-RW discs are paused or left in the pause mode at cue points for long periods of time, it may become difficult to play the disc at that point, due to the properties of the disc. Also, when a specific point is looped repeatedly an extremely large number of times, it may become difficult to play that point.

When playing valuable discs, we recommend making backup discs.

About Copy Control CDs and DualDiscs

This unit is designed to CD standards. Operation and performance of discs with standards other than CD standards is not guaranteed.

About 8 cm single CDs

8 cm single CDs cannot be played on the CDJ-850. Do not mount 8 cm adapters on CDs and play them on the CDJ-850. The adapter could fall off as the disc spins, damaging the disc or the player.

About MP3 files

MP3 files can have a constant bit rate (CBR) or a variable bit rate (VBR). Both types of files can be played on the CDJ-850, but the search and super fast search functions are slower with VBR files. If your priority is operability, we recommend recording MP3 files in CBR.

About AAC files

!AAC is the abbreviation of “Advanced Audio Coding”, a basic format of audio compression technology used for MPEG-2 and MPEG-4.

!The file format and extension of AAC data depends on the application used to create the data.

!In addition to AAC files with the extension “.m4a” encoded with iTunes®, files with the extensions “.aac” and “.mp4” can also be played. Note, however, that copyright-protected AAC files purchased for example at the iTunes Music Store cannot be played. Also, some files may not be playable, depending on the version of iTunes used for encoding.

Troubleshooting

!Incorrect operation is often mistaken for trouble or malfunction. If you think that there is something wrong with this component, check the points below. Sometimes the trouble may lie in another component. Inspect the other components and electrical appliances being used. If the trouble cannot be rectified after checking the items below, ask your nearest Pioneer authorized service center or your dealer to carry out repair work.

!This unit may not operate properly due to static electricity or other external influences. In this case, proper operation may be restored by turning the power off, waiting 1 minute, then turning the power back on.

!Non-finalized (partial discs) CD-R/-RW cannot be played on the CDJ-850.

!Irregularly shaped discs other than standard 12 cm discs cannot be played on the CDJ-850 (doing so will lead to damage or accidents).

!The BPM measured by the CDJ-850 may differ from the BPM indicated on the disc or that of a Pioneer DJ mixer, etc. This is due to the different methods used for measuring the BPM, and is not a malfunction.

!Do not use benzene, thinner or other volatile chemicals. Also do not use record spray or antistatic agents.

!For tough dirt, apply some water to a soft cloth, wring out thoroughly, wipe off the dirt, then wipe off the moisture with a dry cloth.

!Do not use damaged (cracked or warped) discs.

!Do not let the signal surface of discs get scratched or dirty.

!Do not place two discs in the disc tray, one on top of the other.

!Do not attach pieces of paper or stickers to discs. Doing so could warp discs, making it impossible to play them. Also note that rental discs often have labels attached to them, and the label’s glue may have oozed out. Check that there is no glue around the edges of such labels before using rented discs.

About specially shaped discs

Specially shaped discs (heart-shaped, hexagonal, etc.) cannot be played on this player. Do not attempt to play such discs, as they could damage the player.

Cautions on use

About condensation

Water droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit (on operating parts and lenses) in the winter, for example, if the unit is moved from a cold place into a warm room or if the temperature in the room in which the unit is installed rises suddenly (through heating, etc.). The unit will not operate properly and will not be playable with condensation inside. Let the unit stand for 1 to 2 hours at room temperature (though this time depends on the conditions of the condensation) without turning on the power. The water droplets will evaporate and the unit will become playable. Condensation can occur in the summer as well if the unit is exposed to the direct wind from an air-conditioner, etc. If this happens, move the unit to a different location.

Cleaning the lens

The player’s lens should not become dirty in normal use, but if for some reason it should malfunction due to dust or dirt, consult your nearest Pioneer authorized service center. Although lens cleaners for players are commercially available, we advise against using them since some may damage the lens.

Handling discs

Storing

!Always place discs in their cases and store them vertically, avoiding hot, humid places, places exposed to direct sunlight and extremely cold places.

!Be sure to read the cautions included with the disc.

28 En

About condensation on discs

Water droplets (condensation) may form on the surface of discs if they are moved from a cold place (particularly in winter) into a warm room. Discs may not play normally if there is condensation on them. Carefully wipe the water droplets off the surface of the disc before loading it.
