interference฀will฀not฀occur฀in฀a฀particular฀installation.฀If฀
this฀equipment฀does฀cause฀harmful฀interference฀to฀radio฀
or฀television฀reception,฀which฀can฀be฀determined฀by฀
turning฀the฀equipment฀off฀and฀on,฀the฀user฀is฀encouraged฀
to฀try฀to฀correct฀the฀interference฀by฀one฀or฀more฀of฀the฀
following฀measures:
–฀Reorient฀or฀relocate฀the฀receiving฀antenna.
–฀Increase฀the฀separation฀between฀the฀equipment฀and฀
receiver.
–฀Connect฀the฀equipment฀into฀an฀outlet฀on฀a฀circuit฀
different฀from฀that฀to฀which฀the฀receiver฀is฀connected.
–฀Consult฀the฀dealer฀or฀an฀experienced฀radio/TV฀

“.MP3”.
•฀If฀there฀are฀files฀on฀the฀disc฀that฀have฀the฀“.MP3”฀file฀extension,฀
but฀that฀are฀not฀MP3฀files,฀the฀unit฀may฀produce฀noise฀or฀may฀
malfunction.
