television sets or other electrical appliances.

 

Using the remote control

The remote control can be used within a range of about 7 meters from the remote sensor on the front panel, and within a 30 degree angle.

Precautions:

The remote control may not work if there is an obstacle between the remote control and the display unit, or if the remote control is not directed towards the remote sensor of the display unit at the correct angle.

The remote control may not work properly if strong light such as direct sunlight or fluorescent light is shining onto the unit’s remote sensor.

The remote control may not work properly when this unit is used near devices emitting infrared rays, or when remote controls of other devices which use infrared rays are used. Also, the use of this remote control may cause other devices to work improperly.

When the operating range of the remote becomes too short, replace the batteries.

Remote control battery caution

Incorrect use of batteries may cause leakage or rupture.

Always be sure to follow these guidelines:

Always insert batteries into the battery compartment correctly matching the positive ª and negative · polarities, as shown by the display inside the compartment.

Never mix new and used batteries.

Batteries of the same size may have different voltages, depending on brand. Do not mix different brands of batteries.

When disposing of used batteries, please comply with governmental regulations or environmental public instruction's rules that apply in your country or area.

In order to prevent battery leakage, remove the batteries when not using the remote control for an extended period (one month or more). If leakage occurs, carefully wipe away any battery fluid inside the compartment, and replace the batteries with new ones.

Do not allow books or other objects to rest on top of the remote control, since the buttons may be depressed, causing faster exhaustion of the batteries.

Additional notes on connecting antennas

Keep antenna cables away from the main unit and other cables.

To assure optimum reception, pull the FM antenna so that it is fully extended and not coiled or hanging at the rear of the unit.

If reception with the supplied antenna is poor, see the Other connections section in the main operating instructions for details on connecting outdoor antennas.

Additional notes on speaker placement

If your listening room is of adequate size, place the speakers as shown in step 3 to achieve the optimum surround sound effect. If you are listening in a fairly small room and a typical surround speaker setup is not possible, see Home theater sound setup in the instruction manual and the Speaker Setup Guide for information on the Front Surround 3-spot setup option.

When using the standard surround speaker setup as shown in step 3, please observe the following guidelines:

Install the main front left and right speakers at an equal distance from the TV.

For optimum effect, install the rear speakers slightly above ear level.

Install the center speaker above or below the TV so that the sound of the center channel is localized at the TV screen.

Precautions:

When installing the center speaker on top of the TV, be sure to secure it with tape or some other suitable means. Otherwise, the speaker may fall from the TV due to external shocks such as earthquakes, endangering those nearby or damaging the speaker.

Do not connect the supplied speakers with any other amplifier. This may result in malfunction or fire.

The front, center and surround speakers supplied with this system are magnetically shielded. However, depending on the installation location, color distortion may occur if the speaker is installed extremely close to the screen of a television set. If this happens case, turn the power switch of the television set OFF, and turn it ON after 15 to 30 minutes. If the problem persists, place the speaker system away from the television set.

The subwoofer is not magnetically shielded and so should not be placed near a TV or monitor. Magnetic storage media (such as floppy discs and tape or video cassettes) should also not be kept close to the subwoofer.

Do not fix the subwoofer to the wall or ceiling; they could cause injury if they fell.

3 Connect each speaker using the color-coded speaker plugs. Match them to the colored speaker terminals on the rear panel of the DVD/CD receiver.
