▼ Operating Tips for Mini Disc 

(MD) Player

• The MD player has been designed to 

play MDs bearing the identification 
logo as shown. No other MDs can be 
played.

• When inserting the MD, make sure the 

MD label is facing up, and the MD is 
oriented to the insertion slot in the 
direction of the arrow. If not inserted 
correctly, the MD will be ejected, or 
may remain stuck in the MD deck.

• Do not touch the internal part of the 

MD. If the MD shutter is slid open for 
no reason, it may be broken.

• Store MDs in their cases and away 

from direct sunlight.

• Do not insert fingers or foreign objects 

in the MD insertion slot as it could 
damage the MD deck.

▼ Operating Tips for CD Player/In-

Dash CD Changer

Condensation phenomenon

Immediately after turning on the heater 
when the vehicle is cold, the CD or optical 
components (prism and lens) in the CD 
player/changer may become clouded with 
condensation. At this time, the CD will 
eject immediately when placed in the unit. 
A clouded CD can be corrected simply by 
wiping it with a soft cloth. Clouded 
optical components will clear naturally in 
about an hour. Wait for normal operation 
to return before attempting to use the unit.

Handling the CD player/In-dash CD 
changer

The following precautions should be 
observed.
• Do not spill any liquid on the audio 

system.

6-15

Interior Comfort

Audio System

• Do not insert any objects, other than 

CDs, into the slot.

• The CD revolves at high speed within 

the unit. Defective (cracked or badly 
bent) CDs should never be used.

• Do not use non-conventional discs such 

as heart-shaped, octagonal discs, etc. 
The CD player/changer could be 
damaged.

• A new CD may have rough edges on its 

inner and outer perimeters. If a disc 
with rough edges is used, proper 
setting will not be possible and the CD 
player/changer will not play the CD. 
Remove the rough edges in advance by 
using a ball-point pen or pencil as 
shown below. To remove the rough 
edges, rub the side of the pen or pencil 
against the inner and outer perimeter of 
the CD.

• When driving over uneven surfaces, the 

sound will jump.

• The CD player/changer has been 

designed to play CDs bearing the 
identification logo as shown. No other 
discs can be played.

6-16

Interior Comfort

Audio System

• Be sure never to touch the signal 

surface when handling the CDs. Pick 
up a CD by grasping the outer edge or 
the edge of the hole and the outer edge.

• Do not stick paper or tape on the CD. 

Avoid scratching the reverse side (the 
side without a label).

• Dust, finger smudges, and dirt can 

decrease the amount of light reflected 
from the signal surface, thus affecting 
sound quality. If the CD should 
become soiled, gently wipe it with a 
soft cloth from the center of the CD to 
the edge.

• Do not use record sprays, antistatic 

agents, or household spray cleaners. 
Volatile chemicals such as benzine and 
thinner can also damage the surface of 
the CD and must not be used. Anything 
that can damage, warp, or fog plastic 
should never be used to clean CDs.

• CDs, like traditional audio records, are 

made of plastic. To avoid warping, 
keep the CDs in their cases and do not 
store them where they will be exposed 
to direct sunlight.

• The CD player/changer ejects the CD if 

the CD is inserted upside down. Also 
dirty and/or defective CDs may be 
ejected.

• 8 cm (3 in) CDs and CD accessories 

(e.g. 8 cm disc adapter) cannot be used 
in the CD player/changer.

• Do not insert cleaning discs in the CD 

player/changer.

• Do not insert any disc with a peel-off 

or seal on it.

be stored without disturbing the 
previously set channels.

Press and hold the auto memory button 
(

NOTE

If you continue to press and hold the 
button, the frequency will continue 
changing without stopping.

NOTE

If the power supply is interrupted (fuse 
blows or the battery is disconnected), 
the preset channels will be canceled.

NOTE

If no stations can be tuned after 
scanning operations, "A" will be
