(c) Precautions for use of discs


• Copy-protected CDs cannot be played.

• Dual discs cannot be played. Playing dual discs may cause malfunctions of the CD player.

• CD-Rs and CD-RWs may not be played depending on the recording conditions or characteristics of the discs, or due to damage, dirt, or deterioration caused by leaving the discs in the cabin for a long time.

• Unfinalized CD-Rs and CD-RWs cannot be played.

• PAL or SECAM color television standard discs cannot be played. (Only NTSC discs can be played.)

• Keep the discs away from dirt. Be careful not to damage the discs or leave your fingerprints on them.

• Hold discs by the outer edge and center hole with the label side up.

• Leaving the disc exposed halfway out of the slot for a long time after pressing the disc eject button may cause deformation of the disc, making the disc unusable.

• If discs have adhesive tape, stickers, CDR labels, or any traces of such labels attached, the discs may not be ejected or player malfunctions may result.

• Keep the discs away from direct sunlight. (Exposure to direct sunlight may cause deformation of the disc, making the disc unusable.)

• Do not use odd-shaped CDs because these may cause player malfunctions.

• Do not use discs whose recording portion is transparent or translucent because they may not be inserted, ejected, or played normally.


• When it is cold or it is raining, if the windows mist up, mist and also dew may form in the player. In such a case, the CD may skip or the CD may stop in the middle of play. Ventilate or dehumidify the cabin for a while before using the player.

• The CD may skip if the player experiences strong vibrations when the vehicle is driven on rough road or similar uneven surface(s).

(d) Cleaning


Do not use a lens cleaner because it may cause a malfunction in the pickup portion of the player.

(1) If dirt is on the disc surface, wipe it clean with a soft dry cloth such as an eyeglass cleaner for plastic lenses from the center to the outside in a radial direction. NOTICE:

• Pressing on the disc by hand or rubbing the disc with a hard cloth may scratch the disc surface.

• Use of solvent such as a record spray, antistatic agent, alcohol, benzine, and thinner, or a chemical cloth may cause damage to the disc, making the disc unusable.
