Caution:
When the unit is left for a few hours after the span has been
switched and the AC power lead disconnected, the FM span will
be automatically returned to 50 kHz (AM span to 9 kHz). If this
happens, set the span again.
When the span is switched, all the memorised stations will be cancelled.
The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has established
that member countries should maintain either a 100 kHz or 50 kHz
interval between broadcasting frequencies of FM stations and 10
kHz or 9 kHz for AM stations. The illustration shows the 50/9 kHz
zones (regions 1 and 3), and the 100/10 kHz zone (region 2).
This product is not equipped with a span selector. However, it will be
adjusted to a 50 kHz FM (9 kHz AM) interval when shipped from the
factory.
Before using the unit, be sure to set it to the FM/AM tuning interval
(span) used in your area.

Enhancing your system
Before plugging in or unplugging the headphones, make sure the
volume level is reduced.
Be sure your headphones have a 3.5 mm (1/8") diameter plug and
are between 16 ohms and 50 ohms impedance. The recommended impedance is 32 ohms.
When headphones are connected, the speakers are disconnected
automatically. Adjust the VOLUME control for desired volume.

Condensation
Sudden temperature changes, storage or operation in an extremely
humid environment may cause condensation inside the cabinet (CD
pickup, etc.).
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.

Cleaning the cabinet
Before transporting the unit
Remove CD from the unit. Make sure there is no CD in the disc
compartment. Then, set the unit to the power stand-by mode.
Carrying the unit with disc left inside can damage the unit.

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 CD
collection and player.
Do not write on either side of the disc, particularly the non-label
side from which signals are read. 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
Maintenance
YES
Correct
Periodically wipe the cabinet with a soft cloth and a diluted soap
solution, then with a dry cloth.
Caution:
Do not use chemicals for cleaning (petrol, paint thinner, etc.). It
may damage the cabinet finish.
Do not apply oil to the inside of the unit. It may cause
malfunctions.
Cleaning the lens and tape-handling parts
Do not touch the laser pickup lens, if finger prints or dust accumulate on the pickup, clean it gently with a dry cotton swab.
Dirty head, capstan or pinch roller can cause poor sound and tape
jams. Clean these parts with a cotton swab moistened with commercial head/pinch roller cleaner or isopropyl alcohol.
When cleaning the head, pinch roller, etc., unplug the unit which
contains high voltages.
After long use, the deck's head and capstan may become magnetised, causing poor sound. Demagnetise these parts once every
30 hours of playing/recording time by using a commercial tape
head demagnetiser. Read the demagnetiser's instructions carefully before use.
Clearing all the memory (reset)
1 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to enter the power stand-by mode.
2 Push the “RESET” switch.
