Handling discs

Handling precautions
When holding a disc, take care not to touch the played surface.
Discs playable on the System
This System can play back a CD (12 cm, 8 cm), CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW or the audio part of a CD-EXTRA.
Notes on CD-ROM/CD-R/CD-RW
If the CD-ROM, CD-R or CD-RW being used has a printable label surface, the label surface may cause
sticking that makes it impossible to remove the disc from the System. To prevent malfunction of the
System, do not use such a disc.

back correctly.)
The disc rotates at a high speed during playback. Never use a cracked, chipped or greatly warped disc.
Otherwise, damage or malfunction of the player may result.
Also, do not use a disc with a non-circular shape as this may result in malfunction.

Care and storage

Main unit
Keep the System out of the following locations
– Areas exposed to direct sunlight.
– Areas subjected to excessive humidity or dust.
– Areas exposed to direct heat from heating equipment.
Be careful against condensation
Extreme differences between System temperature and air temperature can cause water droplets
(condensation) to form on the System. The System will not operate properly while condensation is present.
If condensation forms, do not use the System for a few hours to allow the condensation to dry.
Take special care against condensation when the System is moved between two locations of very different
temperatures, or into a room where high humidity is present.
When a main unit becomes dirty
When the front panel or case gets dirty, wipe it with a soft dry cloth. Never use lacquer, thinner, benzine,
alcohol or contact revitalizer, which will cause discoloration or deformation.
Storing a disc
If you do not plan to use a disc for a long time, remove it from the main unit and store it in its case.
Cleaning a disc

soft dry cloth.
