Installing To prevent internal heat buildup, do not block the ventilation
openings. Do not install the unit in a hot or humid place, or in a place
subject to excessive dust or mechanical vibration.
Owners Record The model and serial numbers are provided on the front of this instruction manual and at the bottom of the unit. Refer to them whenever you call upon your Sony dealer regarding this product.
Important Safety Notice For your protection, please read these instructions completely, and keep this manual for future reference.
Carefully observe and comply with all warnings, cautions and instructions placed on the set, or described in the operating instructions or service manual.
WARNING To guard against injury, the following basic safety precautions should be observed in the installation, use, and servicing of the set.
Power Sources This set should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the serial/model plate. If you are not sure of the type of electrical power supplied to your home, consult your local power company.
Overloading Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords or convenience receptacles beyond their capacity, since this can result in fire or electric shock.
Always turn the set off when it is not being used. When the set is left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet as a precaution against the possibility of an internal malfunction that could create a fire hazard.
Object and Liquid Entry Never push objects of any kind into the set through the cabinet slots as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the set.
Cleaning Unplug the set from the wall outlet before cleaning or polishing it. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
Use a cloth lightly dampened with water for cleaning the exterior of the set.
Water and Moisture Do not use power-line operated sets near water for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, etc.
Accessories Do not place the set on an unstable cart, stand, table or shelf. The set may fall, causing serious injury to a child or an adult, and serious damage to the set. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn.
Ventilation The slots and openings in the cabinet and in the back or bottom are provided for necessary ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of the set, and to protect it from overheating, these slots and openings must never be blocked or covered.
Never cover the slots and openings with a cloth or other materials.
Never block the slots and openings by placing the set on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface.
Never place the set in a confined space, such as a bookcase, or built-in cabinet, unless proper ventilation is provided.
Do not place the set near or over a radiator or heat register, or where it is exposed to direct sunlight.
Power-Cord Protection Do not allow anything to rest on or roll over the power cord, and do not place the set where the power cord is subject to wear or abuse.
Lightning For added protection for this receiver during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the cable. This will prevent damage to the receiver due to lightning and power-line surges.
Damage Requiring Service Unplug the set from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
When the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed. If liquid has been spilled into the set. If the set has been exposed to rain or water. If the set has been subject to excessive shock by being
dropped, or the cabinet has been damaged. If the set does not operate normally when following the
operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are specified in the operating instructions. Improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the set to normal operation.
When the set exhibits a distinct change in performance this indicates a need for service.
Servicing Do not attempt to service the set yourself since opening the cabinet may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Safety Check Upon completion of any service or repairs to the set, ask the service technician to perform routine safety checks (as specified by the manufacturer) to determine that the set is in safe operating condition, and to so certify.

Replacing Batteries in the Remote
When the batteries need to be replaced, insert two size AA batteries by matching the + and on the batteries to the diagram inside the battery compartment.Then replace the battery compartment lid.
Remove the batteries to avoid damage from possible battery leakage whenever you anticipate that the remote control will not be used for an extended period.
