On headphones
Road safety
Do not use headphones while driving, cycling, or
operating any motorized vehicle. It may create a traffic
hazard and is illegal in some areas. It can also be
potentially dangerous to play your headsets at high
volume while walking, especially at pedestrian crossings.
You should exercise extreme caution or discontinue use in
potentially hazardous situations.
Preventing hearing damage
Avoid using headphones at high volume. Hearing experts
advise against continuous, loud and extended play. If you
experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume or
discontinue use.
Consideration for others
Keep the volume at a moderate level. This will allow you
to hear outside sounds and to be considerate to the people
around you.
Do not immerse in water
This product is not meant to be immersed in water or
come in continuous contact with water.
· Before turning the OPEN/LOCK knob to open the lid,
be sure to wipe off water, dust or sand on the exterior of
the CD player. Open and close the lid where water or
sand cannot fall in the CD player, and make sure that
your hands are dry. If water or sand falls in the CD
player, trouble may occur.
· When closing the lid, check that there is no dust or sand
on the rubber packing around the lid. Then close the lid
firmly and lock it by turning the OPEN/LOCK knob.
· If the CD player is splashed with salt water, wipe clean
with a damp cloth, then dry with a soft dry cloth. Do not
wash under running water; do not use soap or detergent;
or do not dry with an electric hair dryer.
· The supplied headphones are not meant to be immersed
in water or come in continuous contact with water. If
they are accidentally dropped into water or get wet, dry
them with a soft cloth. Never use an electric hair dryer.
· The supplied or optional AC power adaptor is not water
resistant. To prevent shock hazard, avoid using the CD
player near water during AC operation.
· Cover the DC IN 4.5 V jack and
\ jack with the
attached rubber caps when nothing is connected to these
jacks. If the inside of the jacks are contaminated with
water or sand, rust may develop and cause trouble.
Since the CD player is airtight, you may not be able to
open the lid when there is a sudden change in air pressure
inside the CD player. This happens when the CD player is
transported on a plane or moved from a warm place to a
cold place. In this case, open the rubber cap on the DC IN
4.5 V jack.
To clean the casing
Use a soft cloth slightly moistened in water or a mild
detergent solution. Do not use alcohol, benzine or thinner.
To clean the plugs
If the plugs become dirty, there is no sound or noise is
heard. Clean them with a dry soft cloth periodically.
To remove dust or sand from the rubber
Any sand or dust on the rubber packing will prevent the
lid from shutting tightly, and water may leak in. Brush off
the dust once in a while.
We recommend the replacement of the rubber packing
every year which is available optionally at an authorized
Sony service facility.
