Notes
● Not all discs have index numbers. The index system is a
method for sub-dividing tracks into smaller divisions (such
as, for example, the movements within classical
symphonies) for easier location of those parts. The liner
notes with the disc usually tell if such index numbers are
included.
● If an index number is selected that is higher than any index
number on that disc, play will start from the last index
number point on the disc.
● For some discs, play may begin slightly prior to the actual
designated index point.
● If the disc has no encoded index points, play will begin from
the start of the selected track.
● The index number can be designated only while the INDEX
number display is illuminated.
TRACK PROGRAMMING FOR RECORDING TO TAPE
This convenient feature can be used to program tracks for recording to tape. By only memorizing the tape’s total possible recording
time, the unit will automatically program tracks or help you to program tracks so they will fit onto the tape with the least amount of
unrecorded space remaining at each end of the tape.
■ Automatic tape programming
This is for recording tracks on a disc so that they best fit onto a tape.

Even if the peak level searching is performed twice or more

CD SYNCHRONIZED RECORDING
This unit can make a tape deck’s recording synchronized with CD play automatically. With this function, you can record a CD on
tape very easily and more precisely.
This recording method needs a YAMAHA tape deck compatible with this function. (Refer to the tape deck’s operation manual to
know whether it is compatible or not.)
* This unit and the tape deck must be placed close to each other so that they can receive the signals from this unit’s remote control
transmitter at the same time.

Battery replacement
If you find that the remote control transmitter must be used
closer to the main unit, the batteries are weak. Replace both
batteries with new ones.
Notes
● Use only AA, R6, UM-3 batteries for replacement.
● Be sure the polarities are correct. (See the illustration inside
the battery compartment.)
● Remove the batteries if the remote control transmitter will
not be used for an extended period of time.
● If batteries leak, dispose of them immediately. Avoid
touching the leaked material or letting it come in contact with
clothing, etc. Clean the battery compartment thoroughly
before installing new batteries.

Notes
● There should be no large obstacles between the remote
control transmitter and the main unit.
● If the remote control sensor is directly illuminated by strong
lighting (especially an inverter type of fluorescent lamp etc.),
it might cause the remote control transmitter to not work
correctly. In this case, reposition the main unit to avoid
direct lighting.
NOTES ABOUT HANDLING COMPACT DISCS
●
This compact-disc player is designed only for playing of
compact discs bearing the
mark. Never attempt to load
any other type of disc into the unit.
The unit will also play 3-inch (8-cm) compact discs.
●
To remove a disc from its storage case, open the case and
then press down at the center; with a finger through the
center hole and the outer edges held as shown in the
illustration, lift the disc out carefully.
●
●
Compact discs are not affected by small particles of dust or
fingerprints on their playing surface, but even so they should
be kept clean. Wipe by using a clean, dry cloth. Do not
wipe with a circular motion; wipe straight outward from the
center.
,,,
, ,
●
Do not try to clean the disc’s surface by using any type of
disc cleaner, record spray, anti-static spray or liquid, or any
other chemical-based liquid, because such substances
might irreparably damage the disc’s surface.
●
Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high temperature or
high humidity for a long period of time, because these might
warp or otherwise damage the disc.
Always handle the disc with care so that its surface is not
scratched.
NO!
●
Compact discs are not subjected to wear during play, but
damage to the disc surface when the disc is being handled
can adversely affect the disc's play.
To play a 3-inch (8-cm) CD
Place it in the inner recessed area of the disc tray. Do not put
a normal (5-inch/12-cm) CD on top of a 3-inch CD.
