Cleaning the Faceplate Terminals
If the terminals on the unit or faceplate get
dirty, wipe them with a dry, soft cloth.
Cleaning the Unit
If the faceplate of this unit is stained, wipe it
with a dry soft cloth such as a silicon cloth.
If the faceplate is stained badly, wipe the
stain off with a cloth moistened with neutral
cleaner, then wipe neutral detergent off.
Applying spray cleaner directly to the unit
may affect its mechanical parts. Wiping the
faceplate with a hard cloth or using a volatile
liquid such as thinner or alcohol may scratch
the surface or erases characters.
Handling Mini discs

be opened. If forced open, the cartridge will
be damaged and use of the MD will no
longer be possible. If the shutter has been
opened due to some cause, be careful not to
touch the recording portion with a finger.
Doing so will cause the sound to skip.
· Do not use an MD that has a peeling label.
Use of an MD that has a loose or peeling
label may cause problems, such as the label
coming off inside the player and the resultant
inability to eject the MD.
