The unit is a high technology, precision device. If the optical pick-
up lens and disc drive parts are dirty or worn down, the picture
quality becomes poor. To obtain a clear picture, we recommend
regular inspection and maintenance (cleaning
replacement) every 1,000 hours of use depending on the operating
environment. For details, contact your nearest dealer.
12. Notes on Moisture Condensation
Moisture condensation damages the unit.
Please read the following carefully.

Moisture condensation occurs, for example, when you pour a
cold drink into a glass on a warm day. Drops of water form on
the outside of the glass. In the same way, moisture may condense
on the optical pick-up lens inside the unit, one of the most crucial
internal parts of the unit.
· Moisture condensation occurs in the following cases.
When you bring the unit directly from a cold place to a warm
When you use the unit in a room where you just turned on the
heater, or a place where the cold wind from the air conditioner
directly hits the unit.
In summer, when you use the unit in a hot and humid place
just after you move the unit from an air conditioned room.
When you use the unit in a humid place.
· Do not use the unit when moisture condensation may occur.
If you use the unit in such a situation, it may damage discs and
internal parts. Remove the disc, connect the power cord (mains
lead) of the unit to the wall outlet (the mains), turn on the unit,
and leave it for two or three hours. After a few hours, the unit will
have warmed up and evaporated any moisture. Keep the unit
connected to the wall outlet (the mains) and moisture
condensation will seldom occur.
