1. This design of this product contains special hardware and many circuits and components specially for
safety purposes. For continued protection, no changes should be made to the original design unless
authorized in writing by the manufacturer. Replacement parts must be identical to those used in the
original circuits. Services should be performed by qualified personnel only.
2. Alterations of the design or circuitry of the product should not be made. Any design alterations of the
product should not be made. Any design alterations or additions will void the manufacturer's warranty
and will further relieve the manufacture of responsibility for personal injury or property damage
3. Many electrical and mechanical parts in the products have special safety-related characteristics. These
characteristics are often not evident from visual inspection nor can the protection afforded by them
necessarily be obtained by using replacement components rated for higher voltage, wattage, etc.
Replacement parts which have these special safety characteristics are identified in the Parts List of
Service Manual. Electrical components having such features are identified by shading on the
schematics and by ( ! ) on the Parts List in the Service Manual. The use of a substitute replacement
which does not have the same safety characteristics as the recommended replacement parts shown in
the Parts List of Service Manual may create shock, fire, or other hazards.
4. The leads in the products are routed and dressed with ties, clamps, tubings, barriers and the like to be
separated from live parts, high temperature parts, moving parts and/or sharp edges for the prevention
of electric shock and fire hazard. When service is required, the original lead routing and dress should
be observed, and it should be confirmed that they have been returned to normal, after re-assembling.
5. Leakage currnet check (Electrical shock hazard testing)
After re-assembling the product, always perform an isolation check on the exposed metal parts of the
product (antenna terminals, knobs, metal cabinet, screw heads, headphone jack, control shafts, etc.)
to be sure the product is safe to operate without danger of electrical shock. Do not use a line isolation
transformer during this check.
Plug the AC line cord directly into the AC outlet. Using a "Leakage Current Tester", measure the
leakage current from each exposed metal parts of the cabinet, particularly any exposed metal part
having a return path to the chassis, to a known good earth ground. Any leakage current must not
exceed 0.5mA AC (r.m.s.)
Alternate check method
Plug the AC line cord directly into the AC outlet. Use an AC voltmeter having, 1,000 ohms per volt or
more sensitivity in the following manner. Connect a 1,500 10W resistor paralleled by a 0.15 F AC-
type capacitor between an exposed metal part
and a known good earth ground. Measure the AC
voltage across the resistor with the AC voltmeter.
Move the resistor connection to each exposed
metal part, particularly any exposed metal part
having a return path to the chassis, and meausre
the AC voltage across the resistor. Now, reverse
the plug in the AC outlet and repeat each
measurement. Voltage measured Any must not
exceed 0.75 V AC(r.m.s.). This corresponds to 0.5
1. This equipment has been designed and manufactured to meet international safety standards.
2. It is the legal responsibility of the repairer to ensure that these safety standards are maintained.
3. Repairs must be made in accordance with the relevant safety standards.
4. It is essential that safety critical components are replaced by approved parts.
5. If mains voltage selector is provided, check setting for local voltage.
Burrs formed during molding may be left over on some parts of the chassis. Therefore,
pay attention to such burrs in the case of preforming repair of this system.
Preventing static electricity
Electrostatic discharge (ESD), which occurs when static electricity stored in the body, fabric, etc. is discharged,
can destroy the laser diode in the traverse unit (optical pickup). Take care to prevent this when performing repairs.
1.1. Grounding to prevent damage by static electricity
Static electricity in the work area can destroy the optical pickup (laser diode) in devices such as DVD players.
Be careful to use proper grounding in the area where repairs are being performed.
1.1.1. Ground the workbench
1. Ground the workbench by laying conductive material (such as a conductive sheet) or an iron plate over it
before placing the traverse unit (optical pickup) on it.
1.1.2. Ground yourself
1. Use an anti-static wrist strap to release any static electricity built up in your body.
1.1.3. Handling the optical pickup
1. In order to maintain quality during transport and before installation, both sides of the laser diode on the
replacement optical pickup are shorted. After replacement, return the shorted parts to their original condition.
(Refer to the text.)
2. Do not use a tester to check the condition of the laser diode in the optical pickup. The testers internal power
source can easily destroy the laser diode.
1.2. Handling the traverse unit (optical pickup)
1. Do not subject the traverse unit (optical pickup) to strong shocks, as it is a sensitive, complex unit.
2. Cut off the shorted part of the flexible cable using nippers, etc. after replacing the optical pickup. For specific
details, refer to the replacement procedure in the text. Remove the anti-static pin when replacing the traverse
unit. Be careful not to take too long a time when attaching it to the connector.
3. Handle the flexible cable carefully as it may break when subjected to strong force.
4. It is not possible to adjust the semi-fixed resistor that adjusts the laser power. Do not turn it.

2. CAUTION :
Visible and invisible laser radiation when
open and interlock failed or defeated. Avoid direct
exposure to beam.
3. CAUTION :
There are no serviceable parts inside the
Laser Unit. Do not disassemble the Laser Unit. Replace
the complete Laser Unit if it malfunctions.
4. CAUTION :
The compact disc player uses invisible
laser radiation and is equipped with safety switches
which prevent emission of radiation when the drawer is
open and the safety interlocks have failed or are
defeated. It is dangerous to defeat the safety switches.
