Important safety instructions Please read and strictly observe the following instructions! Never open the case of the car radio; it does not contain any serviceable parts! If the case is open, there is a risk of fatality due to electric shock. Do not give your car radio and especially the accessories to children.
Don’t flip the monitor open by hand. This could damage the mechanics. The TFT colour monitor consists of glass and liquid crystals. Don’t put any excessive pressure on the monitor, since otherwise it might scratch, break, or sustain other damages. In addition, the image quality might be impaired. Don’t touch the monitor surface with hard objects and only clean it with a soft, dry cloth and special TFT cleaner.
Secure the installed cables with insulating tape, cable ties, or cable clamps. To protect the cables from damage, use insulating tape when guiding them past metal components. Place and secure all cables in such a manner that they are not in the vicinity of movable parts, such as e.g.
Dirt or condensed moisture on the lens of the CD/DVD drive may impede and even prevent the playback of data carriers. In general, the playback of self-burned data carriers is possible, but it depends on the used software and the settings made with it, so that there may be problems during playback in individual cases.
