PRECAUTIONS
General
off any condensation on the transmitter LED with a soft cloth
before operating the unit.
Please ensure that the equipment is positioned in a well
ventilated area and ensure that there is at least 10 cm
(4") of free space along the sides, top and back of the
equipment.
Do not use oil, solvents, petrol, paint thinners or insecticides on the unit.
Do not expose the unit to moisture, to temperatures
higher than 60°C (140°F) or to extreme low temperatures.
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.
Hold the AC power plug by the head when removing it
from the AC socket, as pulling the lead can damage internal wires.
When cleaning the heads, pinch rollers, etc., remove the
AC power plug from the wall socket as the unit contains
high voltages. Do not remove the outer cover, as this may
result in electric shock. Refer internal service to your
local SHARP service facility.
Use the unit on a firm, level surface free from vibration,
and do not place anything on the top of the unit.
If the unit does not work properly whilst in use, disconnect the AC power lead from the AC socket. Plug the AC
power lead back in, and then press the ON/STAND-BY
button to turn the power on.
If an electrical storm is taking place near you, it is suggested that you disconnect the AC power lead from the
AC socket for safety.
The ventilation should not be impeded by covering the
ventilation openings with items, such as newspapers,
tablecloths, curtains, etc.
No naked flame sources, such as lighted candles, should
be placed on the apparatus.
Attention should be drawn to the environmental aspects
of battery disposal.
The apparatus is designed for use in moderate climate.
Care of compact discs
Compact discs are fairly resistant to damage, however mistracking can occur due to an accumulation of dirt on the disc
surface. Follow the guidelines below for maximum enjoyment from your discs and unit.
Do not write on either side of the disc, particularly the
non-label side. Signals are read from the non-label side.
Do not mark this surface.
Keep your discs away from direct sunlight, heat, and
excessive moisture.
Always hold the CDs by the edges. Fingerprints, dirt, or
water on the CDs can cause noise or mistracking. If a CD
is dirty or does not play properly, clean it with a soft, dry
cloth, wiping straight out from the centre, along the
radius.
NO
YES

Cassette tape
Warning:
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.
For playback, use normal or low-noise tape for the best
sound. (Metal or CrO tape is not recommended.) For
recording, use only normal tape.
Do not use C-120 tapes, tapes with large diameter reels,
or poor-quality tapes, as they may cause malfunctions.
Before loading a tape into the cassette compartment,
tighten the slack with a pen or pencil.
Cassettes have removable tabs which prevent accidental
recording or erasing from taking place. Removing the tab
will protect the corresponding side from being erased.
Cover the tab holes with adhesive tape to erase or record
again.
TAPE 1: Playback only. TAPE 2: Playback or record.
Volume control
The sound level at a given volume setting depends on a
combination of speaker efficiency, location and various
other factors. It is advisable to avoid exposure to high volume levels, which occur whilst turning the unit on with the
volume control setting up high, or whilst continually listening
at high volumes.
Side A (1)
Condensation
Tab for side B (2)
Sudden temperature changes, storage or operation in an
extremely humid environment may cause condensation
inside the cabinet (CD pickup, tape heads, etc.) or on the
transmitter LED on the remote control.
Condensation can cause the unit to malfunction. If this happens, leave the power on with no disc (or cassette) in the
unit until normal playback is possible (about 1 hour). Wipe

RDS (Radio Data System) OPERATION
Information Provided by RDS
RDS is a broadcasting service which a growing number of
FM stations are now providing. It allows these FM stations
to send additional signals along with their regular programme signals. For example, the stations send their station
names, and information about what type of programme they
broadcast, such as sports or music, etc.
With the CD-BA1700H, you can display three types of RDS
service. To show them in the display, press the DISPLAY
MODE button. Each time you press the DISPLAY MODE
button, the display will change to show the following information.
When tuned to an FM station which provides the RDS service, the RDS will appear, and the station frequency (and
then the station name if sent) will be displayed.
"TP" (Traffic Programme) will appear on the display when
the received broadcast carries traffic announcements, and
"TA" (Traffic Announcement) will appear whilst a traffic
announcement is received.
"EON" will appear whilst the EON (Enhanced Other Networks information) data is broadcast.
"PTYI" (Dynamic PTY Indicator) will appear whilst the
Dynamic PTY station is received.
PS
Note:
"TP" and "TA" appear at the same time during an announcement. When only "TA" appears, an announcement is not
made. (See page 26.)

(Continued)
ASPM (Auto Station Program Memory)
After scanning, the number of stations that have been
automatically stored in memory will be displayed for 4
seconds, and then "END" will appear for 4 seconds.
It is recommended that you store stations in memory using
ASPM. (This memory can be used for PTY searches, station select and EON switching.)
When the ASPM button is pressed whilst tuned to the FM
band, the RDS (Radio Data System) function will automatically search for new RDS stations. Up to 40 stations can be
stored in memory. (If you have already stored some stations
in memory, the number of new stations you can store will be
less.)
(Main unit operation)
1
Notes:
Only RDS stations will be stored in memory in numerical
order.
If the same station is broadcasting on different frequencies, the transmission with the strongest broadcast frequency will be stored in memory.
Any station which has the same frequency as one which
has been already stored in memory will not be stored
again.
The ASPM operation can be repeated until "END"
appears.
If a 40th station is stored in memory during a scan, the
scanning will stop at that station. The number of stations
and "END" will each be displayed for 4 seconds.
If no stations have been stored in memory, "END" will
appear for about 4 seconds.
If 40 stations have already been stored in memory and
the ASPM button is pressed, "END" will appear immediately and the scan will be aborted. If you want to redo the
ASPM operation from the beginning, erase the preset
memory, and then perform steps 1 - 4.
If the RDS station broadcast signals are very weak, station names may not be stored in memory.

Notes:
During the same programme as the specified PTY (or TA) is being broadcast on the station you are receiving, the unit
will not switch to other network station.
If there are more than two other network stations you want to listen to, compare the strength of each station's signal and
tune in the station with the strongest signal. (EON-AF) However, if the frequency of other network station has been stored

When the unit switches automatically to "other network" station, "WEAK SIG" will appear and the unit will return to the
original station if there is any problem with this station or the station cannot be received properly.
Even if the unit switches from the station you are listening to directly to some "other network" station, the unit will search
for the station with the strongest signal and switch to it if the signals from the other network stations are very weak. However, if the signals from all the other network stations are very weak, or if the tuning conditions are very bad (due to electrical noise), the unit will stop searching, "WEAK SIG" will be displayed, and the unit will return to the original station you
were receiving.
