The compact disc player supports the following discs.
• Do not use discs designed for purposes other than audio,
such as CD-ROMs for PC use. Abnormal noise could
damage the speakers or compact disc player.
• The compact disc player supports CD-R and CD-RW
discs. Note that some discs may not playback because of
the CD characteristics, scratches, contamination or the
recording state. A CD recorded with an audio CD record
will not playback unless it is finalized.
• Never use discs which have a special shape (such as
hearts or octagons). These types of discs could jam and
damage the compact disc player.
Some audio CDs with copy-control function do not
comply with official CD standards. These are special discs
and cannot be played with this compact disc player.
Hold discs by the edge, or by the center hold and edge.
Avoid touching the playback surface (surface with nothing
printed on it).
Do not attach paper or stickers, or write on the playback or
label surface of the disc. Take care not to scratch or
damage the disc.
Do not use discs with residue from cellophane tape, rental
discs with labels which are peeling off, or discs with
decorative labels. This type of disc could get stuck in the
compact disc player, or could damage the compact disc
Do not leave a CD-R/CD-RW having a label printed with
an inkjet printer in the compact disc player for a long time.
The disc could get stuck in the compact disc player, or
could damage the compact disc player.
Remove the disc from the compact disc player when not
being played, and store it in a case. A freshly printed disc
will stick easily, and should not be played immediately.
If the disc is dirty, the compact disc player will have a hard
time reading signals, and the audio quality may drop. If
the disc is dirty, gently wipe off fingerprints and dust with
a soft cloth. Lightly wipe from the center outwards.
To remove stubborn dust or dirt, wipe the
disc with a soft cloth dampened with
water, and then dry it with a dry cloth. Do
not use cleaning spray for analog records
or antistatic agents, etc.
Never use volatile chemicals such as benzine or paint
thinner as they can impregnate the disc surface.
Moving the compact disc player from a cold room into a
warm room, or heating a cold room with a heater may
cause waterdrops to form inside the compact disc player.
This is called condensation. Not only does this cause
malfunction, but it can also damage the compact disc
player or any inserted disc. Remove discs from the
compact disc player when not in use.
If condensation appears, unplug the power cord and leave
the compact disc player more than 3 hours at room
