Warnings
If this Internet Radio has been moved from a cold
place to a warm place (e.g., from a cold car to a warm
room), do not plug it in for 2-3 hours. Moisture may
have condensed inside the radio, which can cause
internal damage to the system. To avoid damage,
please unpack your Internet Radio and allow it to
stand at room temperature for 2-3 hours before use.

Always ensure that the main plug is easily accessible.

Do not open the radio or remove any fixed covers.
Doing so may cause risk of electric shock.

Unplug the radio during electrical storms.

Never use your Internet Radio if it is damaged in any
way. Always place the unit on a flat, level surface
where it will not be subject to vibration.

Do not expose the system to extreme temperatures,
either hot or cold. Place your Internet Radio well away
from heat sources including radiators, fireplaces or
heat-producing devices (including amplifiers).

Do not use the system in tropical climates.

Do not allow your Internet Radio to be exposed to
rain, moisture or dust. If any liquid is spilled into the

Troubleshooting
1.
Confirm that a Wi-Fi connected PC can access the
Internet (i.e., can browse the web) using the same
network.
2.
Check that a DHCP server is available, or that you
have configured a static IP address on the radio. You
can configure a static IP address on the radio by entering System setup -> Network -> Manual setting->
Wireless, then selecting ‘DHCP disable’.
3.
Check that your access point does not restrict connections to particular MAC addresses. You can view
the radio’s MAC address by entering ‘System setup ->
Network -> View setting-> MAC address’.
4.
If you have an encrypted network, check that you
have entered the correct key or password into the
radio. Remember that text-format keys are case
sensitive. If, when attempting to connect to an
encrypted network, your radio displays: ‘Wireless error’ followed by a 5-digit number, then please ensure
that you enter the correct passcode for the network.
If the problem persists, you may need to consult your
network configuration.
If your radio can connect to the network successfully, but is unable to play particular stations, it
may be due to one of the following:
•
The station is not broadcasting at this time of the day
(e.g., it is located in a different time zone).

•
The station has reached the maximum allowed
number of simultaneous listeners.
•
The station is no longer broadcasting.
•
The link on the radio is out of date.
•
The Internet connection between the server (often
located in a different country) and the radio is slow.
To confirm station status, try using a PC to access the station via the broadcaster’s web site.
If you can play back the station with a PC, use the form at
