About CD players/disc changers connected to this unit
KENWOOD disc changers/ CD players released in 1998 or later can be connected to this unit. Refer to the catalog or consult your Kenwood dealer for connectable models of disc changers/ CD players. Note that any KENWOOD disc changers/ CD players released in 1997 or earlier and disc changers made by other makers cannot be connected to this unit. Unsupported connection may result in damage. Setting the "O-N" Switch to the "N" position for the applicable KENWOOD disc changers/ CD players. The functions that can be used and the information that can be displayed will differ depending on the models being connected.
You can damage both your unit and the CD changer if you connect them incorrectly.
To prevent damage to the machine, take the following precautions:
Make sure to ground the unit to a negative 12V DC power supply. Do not install the unit in a spot exposed to direct sunlight or excessive heat or humidity. Also avoid places with too much dust or the possibility of water splashing. Do not set the removed faceplate or the faceplate case in areas exposed to direct sunlight, excessive heat or humidity. Also avoid places with too much dust or the possibility of water splashing. To prevent deterioration, do not touch the terminals of the unit or faceplate with your fingers. Do not subject the faceplate to excessive shock, as it is a piece of precision equipment. When replacing a fuse, only use a new one with the prescribed rating. Using a fuse with the wrong rating may cause your unit to malfunction. Do not use your own screws. Use only the screws provided. If you use the wrong screws, you could damage the unit.
The LX AMP and the sensor unit cannot be connected simultaneously. You must connect any of them at a time.
Right after you turn on the car heater in cold weather, dew or condensation may form on the lens in the CD player of the unit. Called lens fogging, CDs may be impossible to play. In such a situation, remove the disc and wait for the condensation to evaporate. If the unit still does not operate normally after a while, consult your Kenwood dealer.
