the cover approximately 45 degrees in an anti-clockwise direction to
align the dot on the cover with the "OPEN" marking on the remote
control. Gently tap the control to release the cover. If necessary, use
a coin in the slot in the cover in order to rotate it.
2. Insert 1 x CR2025 size battery into the compartment with the positive
side (marked +) facing towards the battery cover, as shown on the
reverse side of the battery cover.
3. Close the battery cover by re-applying the cover to the control in
the position marked "OPEN" and then use a coin to rotate the cover
clockwise so that there is a slight click and the dot on the cover is
aligned with the "LOCK" marking on the remote control.
4. If the remote is not to be used for an extended period of time it is
recommended that the battery is removed.
IMPORTANT: The battery should not be exposed to excessive heat such
as from direct sunshine, fire or the like. After use, disposable batteries
should if possible be taken to a suitable recycling centre. On no account

the radio to the mains supply. The mains socket used for the radio must
remain accessible during normal use. In order to disconnect the radio
from the mains completely, the mains adaptor should be removed from
the mains socket outlet completely.
Characters appearing on the LCD display indicate that the radio is connected
