Using the remote control
The remote control can be used within a range of about 7
meters (23 ft) from the remote sensor on the front panel,
and within a 30 degree angle.
Precautions:
The remote control may not work if there is an obstacle
between the remote control and the display unit, or if the
remote control is not directed towards the remote sensor
of the display unit at the correct angle.
The remote control may not work properly if strong
light such as direct sunlight or fluorescent light is shining
onto the units remote sensor.
The remote control may not work properly when this
unit is used near devices emitting infrared rays, or when
remote controls of other devices which use infrared rays
are used. Also, the use of this remote control may cause
other devices to work improperly.
When the operating range of the remote becomes too
short, replace the batteries.
Remote control battery caution
Incorrect use of batteries may cause leakage or
rupture.
Always be sure to follow these guidelines:
Always insert batteries into the battery compartment
correctly matching the positive ª and negative ·
polarities, as shown by the display inside the
compartment.
Never mix new and used batteries.
Batteries of the same size may have different voltages,
depending on brand. Do not mix different brands of
batteries.
When disposing of used batteries, please comply with
governmental regulations or environmental public
instruction's rules that apply in your country or area.
In order to prevent battery leakage, remove the
batteries when not using the remote control for an
extended period (one month or more). If leakage occurs,
carefully wipe away any battery fluid inside the
compartment, and replace the batteries with new ones.
Do not allow books or other objects to rest on top of
the remote control, since the buttons may be depressed,
causing faster exhaustion of the batteries.
Additional notes on connecting antennas
Keep antenna cables away from the main unit and other
cables.
To assure optimum reception, pull the FM antenna so that it is
fully extended and not coiled or hanging at the rear of the unit.
If reception with the supplied antenna is poor, see the Other
connections section in the main operating instructions for details
on connecting outdoor antennas.
Additional notes on speaker placement
If your listening room is of adequate size, place the speakers as
shown in step 3 to achieve the optimum surround sound effect.
If you are listening in a fairly small room and a typical surround
speaker setup is not possible, see Home theater sound setup in
the instruction manual and the Speaker Setup guide for
information on the Front surround 3-spot setup option.
When using the standard surround speaker setup as shown in
step 3, please observe the following guidelines:
Install the main front left and right speakers at an equal
distance from the TV.
For optimum effect, install the rear speakers slightly above ear
level.
Install the center speaker above or below the TV so that the
sound of the center channel is localized at the TV screen.
Precautions:
When installing the center speaker on top of the TV, be sure
to secure it with tape or some other suitable means. Otherwise,
the speaker may fall from the TV due to external shocks such as
earthquakes, endangering those nearby or damaging the speaker.
Do not connect the supplied speakers with any other
amplifier. This may result in malfunction or fire.
The front, center and surround speakers supplied with this
system are magnetically shielded. However, depending on the
installation location, color distortion may occur if the speaker is
installed extremely close to the screen of a television set. If this
happens case, turn the power switch of the television set OFF,
and turn it ON after 15 to 30 minutes. If the problem persists,
place the speaker system away from the television set.
The subwoofer is not
magnetically shielded
and so should not
be placed near a TV or monitor.
Since it is not magnetically
shielded, do not place any magnetic storage media (such as floppy
disks and tape or
video cassettes) close to the subwoofer.
Do not fix the front, center speakers and subwoofer to the
wall or ceiling; they could cause injury if they fell.
* In some countries or regions, the shape of the
power plug may sometimes differ from that
shown in the explanatory drawings.
