On handling the LCD screen
• The LCD is manufactured using high-precision technolo-
gy. You may, however, see tiny black points and/or bright
points (red, blue, green) that continuously appear on the
LCD. This is a normal result of the manufacturing process
and does not indicate a malfunction.
• Do not scratch the LCD or exert pressure on it. This could
cause a malfunction.
• Using the player in low temperature conditions may pro-
duce a residual image on the screen. This is not a mal-
function. When the player returns to normal temperature,
the screen returns to normal.
• A residual image may appear on the screen if the same
image is displayed for a lengthy period of time. The resid-
ual image disappears in a while.
If you are going to leave the player for a long time, turn
off the power.
• The screen becomes warm during operation.
This is normal and does not indicate a malfunction.
