Battery operation
1. Remove the Battery cover on the rear of your CD radio cassette by
pushing the catches in the direction of the arrows.
2. Insert two LR6 (AA size) batteries into the small spaces in the battery
compartment. Insert eight LR20 (D size) batteries into the remaining
spaces in the compartment. Take care to ensure all batteries are
inserted with the correct polarity as shown inside the battery
compartment. Replace the battery cover.
note : the two LR6 batteries provide power for the radio memory
and must be fitted at all times.
3. Reduced power, distortion, and a ‘stuttering’ sound are all signs that
the batteries may need replacing. If your CD radio cassette is not to
be used for any extended period of time it is recommended that the
eight LR20 (D size) batteries are removed from the radio.
We would recommend for economy that the CD9912 is used on the
mains whenever possible with battery operation for occasional or
stand-by use only.
Mains operation
1. Place your CD radio cassette on a flat surface.
2. Plug the mains lead into the Socket located on the rear of your CD
radio cassette. Ensure that the plug is pushed fully into the socket.
3. Plug the other end into a wall socket and switch on.

4. Do not allow this unit to be exposed to water, steam or sand. Do not
leave your radio where excessive heat could cause damage such as
in a parked car where the heat from the sun can build up even though
the outside temperature may not seem too high.
