properly in extreme heat or cold. In this
case, wait until the temperature in the car is
more normal, then use the player. Closed
up cars in summer get very hot. If the
temperature inside the player goes above its
reference temperature, a protective circuit
automatically stops the play and ejects the
disc. In this case, open the window to cool
off the car, then start up the player again.
During cold weather, moisture drops
sometimes form on the optical lens of the
disc player after the heater is turned on.
This is called condensation. On a rainy day
or in a very damp area, moisture may
condense on the laser lenses inside the
unit. With this condensation on the lens, the
disc player cannot read the disc and
therefore cannot function properly. The time
required depends on the surroundings, but
if you remove the disc from the player and
wait for about an hour, the condensation will
evaporate and the disc player will be able to
function properly again.

HANDLING THE DISCS
Dirt, dust, scratches and deformation
cause sound skips during playback and a
deterioration of sound quality.
How to take care of your discs:

carefully wiped off the disc's signal surface
(glossy side) with a soft cloth. Unlike
conventional records, the compact disc
has no grooves to collect dust and
microscopic debris, so gently wiping with a
soft cloth should remove most particles.
Wipe in a straight motion from the inside to
the outside of the disc. Small dust particles
or light stains will have absolutely no effect
on reproduction quality.
