off the console, 2) disconnect the power plug for the console from the electrical
outlet, and 3) disconnect the network cable or phone cord from the console.
 If the exterior of the console becomes dirty, soak a soft cloth in a mild detergent
solution diluted with water, tightly squeeze the cloth to remove the excess liquid,
wipe the affected area of the exterior, and finish by wiping with a dry cloth. Avoid
wiping the front vents with a damp cloth.
 When dust accumulates in the console vents, remove the dust with a low-powered
vacuum cleaner.
 Do not touch the lens located inside the disc cover. To help protect the lens from
dust, keep the disc cover closed except when inserting or removing discs.
