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 resulting therefrom.
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,
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
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 current 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
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
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
Move the resistor connection to each exposed metal
part, particularly any exposed metal part having a
return path to the chassis, and measure 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 mA AC (r.m.s.).
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.

! CAUTION 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.

2.DANGER : Invisible laser radiation when open and inter
lock 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.

procedures other than those specified herein may result in
hazardous radiation exposure.

Preventing static electricity
1. Grounding to prevent damage by 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.
2. About the earth processing for the destruction prevention by static electricity
In the equipment which uses optical pick-up (laser diode), optical pick-up is destroyed by the static electricity of
the work environment.
Be careful to use proper grounding in the area where repairs are being performed.
2-1 Ground the workbench
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.
2-2 Ground yourself
Use an anti-static wrist strap to release any static electricity built up in your body.
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 tester's internal power
source can easily destroy the laser diode.
4. 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
(conductive sheet) or iron plate
Anti-static wrist strap
Attention when traverse unit is decomposed
1. Remove the disk stopper and T. bracket on the CD changer mechanism
2. Disconnect the harness from connector on the CD motor board.
3. CD traverse unit is put up as shown in Fig.1.
4. Solder is put up before the card wire is removed from connector CN601
on the CD servo control board as shown in Fig. 2.
(When the wire is removed without putting up solder, the CD pick-up
assembly might destroy.)
5. Please remove solder after connecting the card wire with CN601 when
you install picking up in the substrate.
*Please refer to "Disassembly method" in the text for pick-up and how to
detach the CD traverse mechanism.
Precautions at disassembling and parts replacement
This model is charged with electricity on the power board
even if the power cord is unplugged.
Therefore, always discharge electricity in accordance with
the steps given below before starting disassembling of the
unit and/or replacement of parts.
While referring to the disassembling steps, remove the
metal cover and the CD changer mechanism.
Set electrical resistances of 1kohm, 1/4W to the places between
the + and - terminals of condensers VH(C204, C205) and VL(C214, C215)
on the power board, and discharge electricity for 4 ~ 5 seconds.
Connection should be made at first for VH.
