                                                  fuse. If the fuse blows, check the power
                                                  connection and replace the fuse. If the fuse
                                                  blows again after replacement, there may be an
                                                  internal malfunction. In such a case, consult
                                                  your nearest Sony dealer.



Notes on moisture condensation
On a rainy day or in a very damp area,
moisture may condense on the lenses inside                                       Fuse (10 A)

not operate properly. In this case, remove the
disc and wait for about an hour until the
moisture evaporates.
                                                  Warning
When you play 8 cm (3 in.) CDs                    Never use a fuse with an amperage rating
Use the optional Sony compact disc single         exceeding the one supplied with the unit as                          EN
