Precautions
„ General
z Please ensure that the equipment is positioned in a well-ventilated area and that there is at least 10 cm (4") of free space along
the sides and back. There must also be a minimum of 30 cm
(12") of free space on the top of the unit.

General Information
10 cm (4")
z Use the unit on a firm, level surface free from vibration.
z Keep the unit away from direct sunlight, strong magnetic fields,
excessive dust, humidity and electronic/electrical equipment
(home computers, facsimiles, etc.) which generates electrical
noise.
z Do not place anything on top of the unit.
z Do not expose the unit to moisture, to temperatures higher than
60°C (140°F) or to extremely low temperatures.
z If your system does not work properly, disconnect the AC power
lead from the wall socket. Plug the AC power lead back in, and
then turn on your system.
z In case of an electrical storm, unplug the unit for safety.
z Hold the AC power plug by the head when removing it from the
wall socket, as pulling the lead can damage internal wires.
z Do not remove the outer cover, as this may result in electric
shock. Refer internal service to your local SHARP service
facility.
z The ventilation should not be impeded by covering the ventilation
openings with items, such as newspapers, tablecloths, curtains,
etc.
z No naked flame sources, such as lighted candles, should be
placed on the apparatus.
z Attention should be drawn to the environmental aspects of battery disposal.
z This unit should only be used within the range of 5°C - 35°C
(41°F - 95°F).
Warnings:
z The voltage used must be the same as that specified on this unit.
Using this product with a higher voltage other than that which is
specified is dangerous and may result in a fire or other type of
accident causing damage. SHARP will not be held responsible
for any damage resulting from use of this unit with a voltage other
than that which is specified.
z CD players use a laser pickup which can damage the eyes if
viewed directly. Do not look at the pickup, and do not touch
the pickup directly.
z This product is equipped with a cooling fan inside, which begins
to run at a specified volume level for better heat radiation.
„ Volume control
The sound level at a given volume setting depends on speaker efficiency, location, and various other factors. It is advisable to avoid
exposure to high volume levels, which occurs whilst turning the unit
on with the volume control setting up high, or whilst continually listening at high volumes.
„ Condensation
Sudden temperature changes, storage or
operation in an extremely humid environment may cause condensation inside the
cabinet (CD pickup, etc.) or on the transmitter on the remote control.
Condensation can cause the unit to malfunction. If this happens, leave the power on with
no disc in the unit until normal playback is
possible (about 1 hour). Wipe off any condensation on the transmitter with a soft cloth
before operating the unit.

Notes:
z When an external FM aerial is used, disconnect the supplied FM
aerial wire from the FM 75 OHMS socket.
z When using an external AM aerial, be sure to keep the wire of the
AM loop aerial connected.
Supplied FM aerial:
Connect the FM aerial wire to the FM 75
OHMS socket and position the FM aerial
wire in the direction where the strongest
signal can be received.
„ Speaker connection
Supplied AM loop aerial:
Connect the AM loop aerial wire to the AM
and GND terminals. Position the AM loop
aerial for optimum reception. Place the
AM loop aerial on a shelf, etc., or attach it
to a stand or a wall with screws (not supplied).

„ Setting the AC voltage selector
„ Connecting the AC power lead
Check the setting of the AC voltage selector located on the rear
panel before plugging the unit into a wall socket. If necessary, adjust
the selector to correspond to the AC power voltage used in your
area.
After checking all the connections have been made correctly,
connect the AC power lead to the AC power input socket, then
into the wall socket.

This product is not equipped with a span selector. However, it will be
adjusted to a 9 kHz AM (50 kHz FM) interval when shipped from the
factory.
Before using the unit, be sure to set it to the AM/FM tuning interval
(span) used in your area.
To check the tuning span currently selected:
1 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to turn the power on.
2 Press the FUNCTION button until "AM" appears on the display.
z If "AM 531 kHz" is displayed, it means that AM stations have
been adjusted for a 9 kHz span and FM stations for 50 kHz
span. If "AM 530 kHz" is displayed, AM stations have been adjusted for a 10 kHz span and FM stations for 100 kHz span.
To change from a 9 kHz AM (50 kHz FM) interval to a 10 kHz AM
(100 kHz FM) interval:
1 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to enter the stand-by mode.
2 Hold down the
button and the MEMORY/SET button for at
least 4 seconds. Release the buttons when "AM SP 10 kHz" and
"FM SP 100 kHz" are displayed alternately.
z The clock display will reappear.
To return to a 9 kHz AM (50 kHz FM) interval:
1 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to enter the stand-by mode.
2 Hold down the
button and the MEMORY/SET button for at
least 4 seconds. Release the buttons when "AM SP 9 kHz" and
"FM SP 50 kHz" are displayed alternately.
z The clock display will reappear.
- System Connections -
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has established
that member countries should maintain either a 10 kHz or 9 kHz
interval between broadcasting frequencies of AM stations and 100
kHz or 50 kHz for FM stations. The illustration shows the 50/9 kHz
zones (regions 1 and 3), and the 100/10 kHz zone (region 2).
Preparation for Use
„ Setting the AM/FM interval
Caution:
z When the unit is left for a few hours after the span has been
switched and the AC power lead disconnected, the AM span will
be automatically returned to 9 kHz (FM span to 50 kHz). If this
happens, set the span again.
z When the span is switched, all the memorised stations will be
cancelled.
