Note on Operation 


The CD Player is designed to be connected to 12 V DC and negative grounding. 


Avoid mounting the CD Player where it is likely to be exposed to direct sunlight, hot 
air or water. Also, avoid mounting it where there is excessive vibration. Take care not 
to allow any metal objects or water to enter the interior of the CD Player. 


When you use the CD Player for the first time, or if you have replaced the battery, 
push the Reset button with the tip of a pencil or similar pointed object. 


If a disc is inserted violently, sometimes a protection circuit will function and stop the 
operation. Should the protection circuit function, turn the power switch OFF once 
and then turn it ON again. 


About Condensation 


When a disc or disc magazine is brought from a low-humidity place to a car where 
there is high humidity due to rain, etc., water vapor may condense on the disc. Or, 
when the main unit of the changer is installed under the dashboard, condensation 
may occur on the surface of the optical lens immediately after turning on the heater. 
If the CD player is operated in this condition, the laser pickup may not correctly read 
out the signal, or dropouts may occur occasionally. Thus, correct operation may not 
be obtained. In such cases, dehumidify the disc, or remove the disc magazine from 
the changer and leave it for about one hour, at which time correct operation will 
resume, 

lf the CD player does not operate correctly after a long time interval, consult your 
dealer or nearest KENWOOD Service Station. 


About temperature 


When a Car is exposed to sunlight with all the windows closed, the temperature 
inside will rise considerably. When it rises above 60 degrees C, a circuit that protects 
the interior will function, displaying ‘‘HOLD’’ and the compact disc may sometimes 
cease to operate. In such a case, the compact disc cannot be played back. At that 
time, operate the air-conditioner or open the window and drive for a while to 
decrease the room temperature. When the room temperature is lowered, the 
“HOLD” indicator automatically goes off and play starts automatically. If the 
compact disc cannot still be played back correctly, press the Reset button. 


Handling of compact disc 


Stains, dust or scratches on the disc or warping of the disc will cause malfunction 
such as skipping. Handle the disc in the following manner so that you may enjoy the 
beautiful sound of the CD Player for a long time.

BEFORE USE 





< Handling the disc> 
Hold the disc without touching the music storage area (glistening rainbow colors). Do 
not apply a paper tape to the label on the disc nor to the music storing area. 


Paper tape 





< Storage of compact disc> 
© Do not put the disc where it is exposed to direct sunlight, heat or humidity. 


e Especially in summer, never leave the disc exposed to direct sunlight or placed on 
the seat or dashboard with the windows closed because the temperature will rise 
considerably and the disc will warp. 


e When the player is not in use for an extended period of time, remove the disc 
magazine from the changer, and store it in a place which is not subject to high 
temperature or high humidity. 

Be sure to store the discs in their cases Or in the magazine. Do not leave them 
outside of the case or magazine, or piled up, or leaning on @ slant. This may cause 
scratches, dirt or warping. 


<Cleaning of compact disc > 

lf there are fingerprints or stains on the disc, remove them by lightly wiping it with soft 
cotton cloth from the center toward the outside edge. Never use thinner or benzine. 
Also, avoid using conventional record cleaner.
