Select an installation site with a flat, solid surface.
Do not install the system where it will suffer any of the following:
1 Exposure to direct sunlight or `a heater
2 High humidity or dust
3 Proximity to bathroom or kitchen
4 Exposure to spotlight
5 Proximity to any large electric apparatus such as a refrigerator, air
conditioner, dimmer, etc.
6 Uneven or unsteady installation surface.
(If the surface is not flat, first put down a hard plate or similar
support so that the system is installed level.)
7 Difficulty of service and maintenance.
If you install the system close to a wall, be sure to leave a space
between the wall and the system so that the rear of the system is
Avoid placing objects directly on the changer.
÷ Fingerprints or dust on the disc will not directly in flounce the
signals recorded on it. However, sound quality may decline, since
such contamination diminishes the intensity of the light reflected
from the signal side.
Therefore, discs should be kept clean. When you clean a disc, use
a soft cloth and carefully wipe towards outer edge of the disc.
÷ If the disc is heavily soiled, wipe off the dirt using a soft cloth
soaked with water, then wipe the water off using a dry cloth.
÷ Do not use spray-type record cleaner or antistatic agent. Do not
use benzine, thinner or similar volatile chemicals as they may
dissolve the disc surface.
÷ CDs are made of plastic, like conventional audio records. Take
proper care to prevent discs from warping. Always put them in
their case and store them vertically away from humidity or extremes
Do not leave your discs on a car seat for a long time.
÷ Be sure to read the instructions supplied with discs.
÷ CD lens cleaner
The player's pickup lens should not become dirty in normal use,
but if for some reason it should malfunction due to soiling, consult
your nearest PIONEER authorized
service center. Lens cleaners
for CD players are commercially available, but special care should
be exercised in their use since some may cause damage to the
Cleaning the changer
To clean the panel and the cover, use a soft, dry cloth to wipe off dust
and dirt. If the cabinet is heavily soiled, wipe off the dirt using a soft
cloth soaked with neutral detergent diluted 5 to 6 times. Then wipe
the water off with a dry cloth. Do not use benzine, thinner, insecticide
or similar volatile chemicals, as they may dissolve or discolor the
cabinet surface. If you use a chemical polishing cloth, carefully read
the instructions supplied with it.
If the temperature difference between the changer and environment
is too large, water will condense in the changer and the system may
not provide proper performance. For example, if you bring the
changer into a warm room from outside in cold weather, or if you
increase room temperature abruptly, condensation may result.
If condensation occurs, leave the changer for one hour in the room,
or increase room temperature gradually before using it.
Handling the discs
÷ Use DVDs and CDs marked with the following
÷ Avoid touching the signal surface when you use a disc.
÷ To hold it, place your fingers on the edge of the disc or the edge
of the center hole and the disc edge.
÷ Do not attach paper or stickers to the label side of the disc. Handle
discs carefully and avoid damaging the label.
÷ Discs rotate at high speed in the changer. Do not use defective
discs (e.g., cracked or considerably warped). Such discs may
damage the changer.
÷ Do not use a disc with an electrostatic charge. Remove any
electrostatic charge from the disc with the supplied electrostatic
charge removal sheet before inserting the disc in the changer.
÷ Set the VOLTAGE SELECTOR switch on the rear panel according
to your local voltage. If the switch is not set properly, the specified
performance may not be obtained or the equipment itself may be
÷ Be careful not to stain, scratch or leave fingerprint, etc., on the
signal surface, or recording surface of the discs. The specified
playback performance or recording performance may not be
obtained with such discs.
÷ Do not insert more than one disc in a mail slot, otherwise
malfunction will result.
÷ Every time after exchanging discs by unloading and loading the
magazine, be sure to issue SCSI command "INITIALIZE ELEMENT
STATUS." However, this command does not have to be issued
provided that the storage element initialization condition has been
set to AUTO (with the 8-pin Function switch inside the front door).
÷ The Changer does not manage the disc contents. The data should
be managed by involving the host.
÷ The recording disc used with the writer should be the disc
recommended by PIONEER. The specified recording performance
or playback performance may not be obtained if a non-
recommended disc is used.
÷ Please note that the data recorded on discs is not covered by
÷ Be sure not to lose the key of the key switch. Without the key, it
will not be possible to remove, install and exchange discs (in both
the mail slots and magazines).
÷ For safety
÷ Do not install the unit on the desk, etc., as the unit sometimes
÷ Do not stack the units or do not place a hevy object on the unit.
÷ The Changer can accommodate only the discs with a diameter of
12 cm(5 in). As the Changer detects the presence of disc with
optical detection of the position at about 5 mm(3/16 in) inside the
external periphery of the 12 cm(5 in) disc, the use of a disc which
is transparent at the corresponding position or a 8 cm(3 in) disc
may lead to disc detection error and to the disc damage in the
worst case. Also, the use of a 8 cm disc adapter is strictly
÷ For safety, this unit has been designed so that the door cannot be
opened while the built-in reader or writer is operating.
÷ Since the disc rotates at a high speed in the built-in reader,
vibrations or noise may be generated as a result. Note that this is
not a malfunction and that it will not exert adverse effects on the
performance of the unit.
