Using the sound system for the first time
1. Place your sound system on a flat surface.
2. Fully extend the telescopic aerial. The aerial should be fully extended
and positioned vertically for optimum reception.
3. Plug the cable from the mains adaptor into the DC input socket on
the rear of your sound system (marked 'DC') ensuring that the plug is
pushed fully into the socket. Plug the mains adaptor into a wall socket
and switch on the socket. The display will show "ROBERTS" for a few
seconds and then the display will then show "SCANNING". During
this time the sound system is scanning to find out which DAB radio
stations are available. While scanning markers will show progress of
the scan together with a count of stations found. After a short time the
current time and day will appear on the display.
4. If no stations are found, "NO CLOCK" will be displayed. It may be
necessary to relocate your sound system to a position giving better
reception. You should then carry out a scan to find stations as described
on page 9.
IMPORTANT: The mains adaptor is used as the means of connecting the
sound system to the mains supply. The mains socket used for the sound
system must remain accessible during normal use. In order to disconnect
the sound system from the mains, the mains adaptor should be removed
from the mains socket outlet completely.
Characters appearing on the LCD display indicate that the sound system
is connected to and powered from the mains supply.

switch on in that mode the next time that it is used.
2. If the sound system has been used before, the last used station will
be selected.
3. If this is the first time that the sound system has been used, then the
first station in the list of stations found during scanning will be played.
The display will show the station name on the display.
4. If no signals are found then "OFF AIR" will be displayed and it may be
necessary to relocate your sound system to a position giving better
reception. You should then carry out a scan to find stations as described
on page 9.
