ˆ The FCC Wants You to Know
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 limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses
and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio
communications.
However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, the user is encouraged to try
to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
• 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.
Warning: This system employs a laser light beam. Only a qualified service person should remove the cover
or attempt to service this device, due
to possible eye injury.
• 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.

The FCC Wants You to Know
ˆ Preparation
You can power your CD player from
any of these sources:
• two AA alkaline batteries (not
supplied)
• Do not mix old and new batteries,
different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable),
or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.
• two rechargeable AA nickel-cadmium batteries (RSU 11672508
not supplied)
1. Press down and slide the battery
compartment cover in the direction of the arrow, then lift it up.
• standard AC power using a regulated AC adapter (not supplied)
2. Place two AA batteries in the
compartment, as indicated by the
polarity symbols (+ and –)
marked inside.
• vehicle battery power using a DC
adapter (not supplied)
3. Replace the cover.
Note: Connecting a regulated AC or
DC adapter to the CD player when
non-rechargeable batteries are installed disconnects the batteries.
When “ý flashesý or the CD player
stops operating properly, replace the
batteries.
INSTALLING
BATTERIES
Warning: Dispose of old batteries
promptly and properly. Do not burn or
bury them.
Your CD player requires two AA batteries (not supplied) for power. For
the best performance and longest life,
we recommend RadioShack alkaline
batteries. You can also use rechargeable nickel-cadmium batteries (RSU
11672508).
Cautions:
• Use only fresh batteries of the
required size and recommended
type.
Caution: If you do not plan to use the
CD player for a month or more, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak
chemicals that can destroy electronic
parts.
Charging Rechargeable
Batteries
This CD player can fully charge nickel-cadmium
batteries
(RSU
11672508) in about 17 hours. You
can play a CD while charging the
Preparation
5
nickel-cadmium batteries; however,
this causes the batteries to charge
more slowly.
1. Connect an optional regulated
AC or DC adapter to the CD
player’s DC IN 4.5V jack. See
“Using AC or DC Power”.
2. After about 17 hours, unplug the
adapter and disconnect it from
the CD player’s DC IN 4.5V jack.
USING AC OR DC
POWER
To power the CD player from an AC
outlet or your vehicle’s battery power,
you need a regulated AC or DC
adapter and an Adaptaplug (neither
supplied, available at your local RadioShack store).
Cautions:
You must use a (Class
2 for AC) power source
that supplies 4.5V DC
and delivers at least 600 mA. Its
center tip must be set to positive
and its plug must fit the CD
player's DC IN 4.5V jack. Using an
adapter that does not meet these
specifications could damage the
CD player or the adapter.
!
Caution: Do not overcharge the
batteries. Overcharging can significantly reduce the batteries'
useful life.
Important: The EPA
certified RBRC® Battery Recycling Seal on
the nickel-cadmium (NiCd) 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 1800-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.
6
• Always connect the adapter to
the CD player before you plug it
into the power source, and
unplug the adapter from the
power source before you unplug
it from the CD player.
1. Insert the recommended Adaptaplug adapter into the adapter’s
cord, setting TIP to + (positive).
2. Set the adapter’s voltage switch
to 4.5V.
3. Insert the adapter’s barrel plug
into the CD player’s DC IN 4.5V
jack.
Preparation
4. Plug the other end of the adapter
into a standard AC outlet or into
your vehicle’s cigarette lighter
socket.
5. When you finish using the
adapter, disconnect it from the
AC outlet or your vehicle’s cigarette-lighter socket first, then
unplug it from the CD player.
Note: Always unplug the adapter before using the CD player with alkaline
batteries. Otherwise the player will
not operate.
CONNECTING
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 highvolume 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
You can listen to your CD player by
connecting the supplied headphones, optional earphones, or optional amplified speakers to the
player’s PHONES jack.
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.
Note: Your local RadioShack store
carries a wide variety of cable and
adapters.
Even though some earphones and
headphones let you hear some outside sounds when listening at normal
volume levels, they still can present a
traffic hazard.
For private listening, connect the supplied headphones or optional earphones with a 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) plug
into the PHONES jack.
Listening Safely
To protect your hearing, follow these
guidelines when you use headphones.

SKIP AND AUDIBLE
SEARCH
Your CD player contains special circuits to overcome skipping problems
caused by shock or vibration. This
means you can listen to the CD player anywhere you go or use it in your

% SKIP/SEARCH to return to the beginning of the current track, or %
SKIP/SEARCH twice to go to the beginning of the previous track.
When you turn on the anti-shock system, the CD player continuously
saves the next 40 seconds of music
in memory. During a shock or vibration that would normally make a track
skip or pause, the CD player plays directly from memory. If the player is
subjected to shocks of over 40 seconds duration, some interruption of
sound output will occur. This is normal. The sound resumes once the
shock subsides.

ˆ Care
Keep the CD player dry; if it gets wet,
wipe it dry immediately. Use and
store the CD player only in normal
temperature environments. Handle
the CD player carefully; do not drop it.
Keep the CD player away from dust
and dirt, and wipe it with a damp cloth
occasionally to keep it looking new.
always keep it in its protective
case or sleeve when it is not in
use. Fingerprints and scratches
on the CD's surface can prevent
the laser beam from correctly
reading the digital information. If
the CD gets scratched, use
RadioShack Scratch ‘n Fix to
repair the disc.
Modifying or tampering with the CD
player’s internal components can
cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC
authorization to operate it. If your CD
player is not performing as it should,
take it to your local RadioShack store
for assistance.
CD CARE TIPS
Even though a compact disc is durable, treat the CD surface with care.
• Do not write on either side of the
CD, particularly the non-label
side (signals are read from the
non-label side).
• Do not store CDs in high temperature or high humidity areas.
They might warp.
• Keep CDs dry. A water drop can
act as a lens and affect the laser
beam's focus.
• Always handle a CD by the
edges to avoid fingerprints and
