ABOUT CASSETTE TAPES
Whenever you record on a cassette any previously recorded material is erased as
the new material is recorded. To prevent you from accidentally erasing rnaterial
which you wish to save, blank cassettes are equipped with erase prevention tabs
for each side of the tape. lf the erase prevention tab for side A is removed, you
cannot accidentally record on side A. The record key cannot be depressed if the
erase prevention tab on the cassette has been removed.
To prevent accidental erasing on sideAof a cassette use a small screw driver or
similar tool to break off the erase prevention tab for side A. This prevents the
record key from locking.
r-i
F:t-
TAB FOR SIDE A
BREAK OUT TO PREVENT RECORDING
lf later you do wish to record on side A of the cassette, cover the tab opening with
a piece of cellophane tape. This will allow the record key to function again.

2.) T ape tangling

Leading to uneven speed in playback, and
Where the tape wraps itself around vital parts of themechan ism.
To reduce the likelihood of these problems occurring, the following precautions
should be observed:
Check that there are no loose layers of tape visible
through the cassette center window (see Fig. 1).
Take up any loose layers, using a pencilor hexagonal
banelled ballpoint pen, before inserting the cassette
into the machine (see Fig. 2).
Fig l
lf the cassette feels "tight" while performing operation
shown (see Fig. 2), the tape may be jamming due to.
"ridges" formed in the winding of the tape (visible
through the center window). These may be rernoved,
in most cases, by fast winding of the cassette from
one end to the other and back again.

COMPACT DISC CARE
. To remove a disc from its storage
case, press down on the center of the case
and lift the disc out, holding it carefully by the edges.
.''------
Fingerprints and dust should be carefully wiped off the disc's recorded surface
with a soft cloth.Unlike conventional records, compact discs have no grooves
to collect dust and microscopic debris, so gently wiping with a soft cloth should
remove most particles. Wipe in a straight line from the inside to the outside of
the disc. Small dust particles and light stains will have absolutely no effect on
reproduction quality.
WgE
{}
+
. Clean the disc periodically with a soft, lint-free, dry cloth. Never use detergents
or abrasive cleaners to clean the disc. lf necessary, use a CD cleaning kit.
.
Never write on or affix labels to the surface of compact discs.
CARE OF THE CABINET
lf the cabinet becomes dusty wipe it with a soft dry dust cloth. Do not use any wax,
polish sprays, or abrasive cleaners on the cabinet.
CAUTION
Never allow any water or other liquids to get inside the unit while cleaning.
