the FCC wants you to know
• Batteries to be installed by adults only.
• Use only fresh batteries of the required size and
recommended type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries
(standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable
batteries of different capacities.
• If you do not plan to use your CD Player for several days,
remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can
damage electronic parts.
• Any batteries purchased for use in this audio device may pose
a hazard to children. Please check safety notice supplied with
batteries before use.
• Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not burn
or bury them.

CD player (see “Charge Batteries”) with an adapter.
• The CD player senses whether or not the batteries you
install are rechargeable and turns on the charging circuit or
disconnects the batteries accordingly.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for
a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These

connecting to a car audio system
You can listen to your CD player through your vehicle’s
sound system in three ways:
taking care of your CD player
Line out to cassette adapter. Connects CD player to car
audio system.
If your car sound system has a cassette deck, connect the
supplied CD-to-cassette adapter’s plug to the CD player’s
LINE OUT jack. Then insert the cassette end of the adapter
into your cassette deck just like a standard cassette.
If your car sound system has LINE IN jacks, connect an
optional Y-cable’s 1/8-inch (3.5mm) plug to the CD player’s
LINE OUT jack. Connect the Y-cable’s phono plugs to your
auto sound system’s LINE IN input jacks.
If your car sound system has a CD input jack, connect one
end of a 1/8-inch (3.5mm) stereo patch cable to the CD
player’s LINE OUT jack. Connect the other end to your auto
sound system’s CD INPUT jack. To avoid sound distortion,
set VOL to the lowest comfortable listening level and adjust it
as necessary.
record from the line out jack
1. Connect a patch cable
(not supplied) from the LINE
OUT jack on the CD player
to the LINE INPUT jacks on a
cassette recorder.
The sound from the CD can
be heard through a pair of
2. Connect a patch cable, (not
supplied) from the LINE OUT jack on the CD player to the
AUX or INPUT jacks on a stereo system.
• Keep your CD player dry; if it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.
• Use and store the CD Player only in normal temperature
• Handle your CD Player carefully; do not drop it.
• Keep your CD Player away from dust and dirt, and wipe it with a
damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.
• If your CD Player is not performing as it should, take it to your
local RadioShack store for assistance. To locate your nearest
RadioShack, use the store locator feature on RadioShack’s website
(, or call 1-800-The Shack (843-7422) and
follow the menu options. Modifying or tampering with your CD
Player’s internal components cause a malfunction and might
invalidate its warranty.
listening safely
To protect your hearing, follow these guidelines when you
use earphones or headphones.
• Set the volume to the lowest setting before you begin
listening. After you begin listening, adjust the volume
to a comfortable level.
• Do not listen at extremely high volume levels.
Extended high-volume listening can lead to permanent
hearing loss.
• Once you set the volume, do not increase it. Over time,
your ears adapt to the volume level, so a volume level
that does not cause discomfort might still damage
your hearing.
traffic safety
Do not wear earphones or headphones while operating a
motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can create a traffic
hazard and could be illegal in some areas.
Even though some earphones or headphones let you
hear some outside sounds when listening at normal
volume levels, they still can present a traffic hazard.
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that
to which the receiver is connected.
Consult your local RadioShack store or an experienced radio/TV technician
for help.
If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires that you stop
using your CD player. Changes or modifications not expressly approved
by RadioShack may cause interference and void the user’s authority to
operate the equipment.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject
to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful
interference, and (2) This device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.

battery recycling
The EPA certified RBRC(r) Battery Recycling Seal
on the nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) battery indicates
RadioShack is voluntarily participating in an industry
program to collect and recycle these batteries at the
end of their useful life, when taken out of service in the
United States or Canada. The RBRC program provides
a convenient alternative to placing used Ni-Cd batteries into the trash
or the municipal waste stream, which may be illegal in your area.
Please call 1-800-THE-SHACK (1-800-843-7422) for information on
Ni-Cd battery recycling and disposal bans/restrictions in your area.
RadioShack’s involvement in this program is part of the company’s
commitment to preserving our environment and conserving our
natural resources.
