PROTECT YOUR FURNITURE !!
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber 'feet' to prevent the product
from moving when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made from
non-migrating rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any
marks or stains on your furniture. However certain types of oil based
furniture polishes, wood preservatives, or cleaning sprays may cause the
rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a rubber residue on the furniture.
To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly recommend that you
purchase small self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware stores and
home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the bottom
of the rubber 'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

CD CASSETTE SYNCHRO RECORDING
When recording from CD to cassette, the CD cassette synchro recording feature in
this unit allows you to start both the CD player and the cassette recorder with the
push of a single button.
1.) Open the CD door and place the CD to be recorded in the CD player as usual.
Close the CD door.
2.) Open the cassette compartment and insert a blank cassette tape.
3.) Press the FUNCTION button to select the CD mode.
4.) Press the cassette Record
key. The SYNC indicator appears in the display..
The cassette recorder and the CD player will
start simutaneously and all of the material on
your CD will be recorder directly onto the blank
cassette.
Note: If a CD is already playing and you press the cassette Record
key,,
the CD player will begin recording at that point automatically.
Automatic Recording Volume Level Control
This unit has an Automatic Level Control (ALC) circuit which controls the recording
volume level and prevents overloaded and distorted recordings. The VOLUME
and SURROUND controls have no effect on recording volume level. You may
change the control settings during the recording or even reduce the volume level
to “Minimum”. This will not effect the level of the recording.
STEREO HEADPHONE JACK
Connect a set of stereo headphones (not included) with a 3.5mm mini plug to the
Phones
jack (located at back cabinet) for private listening without disturbing
others. Before putting on the headphones reduce the VOLUME control to a low
level, then put the headphones on and gradually increase the VOLUME control to
a comfortable listening level. The built in speakers are automatically disconnected
when headphones are connected to the headphone jack.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
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 material
which you wish to save, blank cassettes are equipped with erase prevention tabs
for each side of the tape. If 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 side A of 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.

BREAK OUT TO PREVENT RECORDING
If 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.

CASSETTE CARE
Two common causes of trouble experienced when using cassettes are:
1.) Tape jamming — Leading to uneven speed in playback, and
2.) Tape tangling — Where the tape wraps itself around vital parts of themechanism.
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 pencil or hexagonal
barrelled ballpoint pen, before inserting the cassette
into the machine (see Fig. 2).
• If 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 removed,
in most cases, by fast winding of the cassette from
one end to the other and back again.
• Use only well-known brands of tape. Avoid use of C-120 cassettes.
Furthermore, do not expose cassettes to direct sunlight, dust or oil, and do not touch
the tape surfaces.
HEAD CLEANING
The tape heads, pinch roller and capstan require periodic cleaning. This removes
particles of the metal oxide coating that wear off the tape and accumulate on these
parts and impair performance. Switch off the power, press the Stop/Eject
key to
key. Clean the tape heads, pinch roller
open the cassette door, and press the Play
and capstan with a soft cloth or cotton pad dampened in isopropyl alcohol or special
tape head cleaner.

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.
• Clean the disc periodically with a soft, lint-free, dry cloth. Never use detergents
or abrasive cleaners to clean the disc. If necessary, use a CD cleaning kit.
• Never write on or affix labels to the surface of compact discs.
CARE OF THE CABINET
If 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.
