Using the Radio Data System (RDS)
RDS is a broadcasting service which a growing
number of FM stations provide. These FM stations
send additional signals along with their regular
programme signals. They send their station names,
and information about the type of programme such as
sport, music, etc.
When tuned to an RDS station, “RDS” and the station
name will be displayed.
“PTYI” (Dynamic PTY Indicator) will appear whilst the
Dynamic PTY station is received.
2 When an RDS station is found, “RDS” will appear
for a short time and the station will be stored in
memory.
3 After scanning, the number of stations stored in
memory will be displayed for 4 seconds, and then
“END” will appear for 4 seconds.
You can control the RDS by using the buttons on the
remote control only.
■
Information provided by RDS
Each time the RDS DISPLAY button is pressed, the
display will switch as follows:
Station name (PS)
Frequency
Programme type (PTY)
Radio text (RT)
To stop the ASPM operation before it is complete:
Press the RDS (ASPM) button whilst it is scanning for
stations. The stations which are already stored in memory
will be kept there.
Notes:
● Any station which has the same frequency as the one
stored in memory will not be stored.
● If 40 stations have already been stored in memory, the
scan will be aborted. If you want to redo the ASPM
operation, erase the preset memory.
● If no station have been stored in memory, “00 MEM”
and “END” will appear for about 4 seconds.
● If the RDS signals are very weak, station names may
not be stored in memory.
● The same station name can be stored in different
channels.
● In a certain area or during certain time periods, the
station names may temporarily be different.

Notes for RDS operation
If any of the following events occur, it does not mean
that the unit is faulty:
● “PS”, “NO PS” and a station name appear alternately,
and the unit does not operate properly.
● If a particular station is not broadcasting properly or a
station is conducting tests, the RDS reception function
may not work properly.
● When you receive an RDS station whose signal is too
weak, information like the station name may not be
displayed.
● “NO PS”, “NO PTY” or “NO RT” will be displayed for few
seconds, and then the frequency will be displayed.
● If the display has stopped flashing, start again from
step 2. If the unit finds a desired programme type, the
corresponding channel number will lit for about 4
seconds, and then the station name will remain lit.
● If you want to listen to the same programme type of
another station, press the RDS PTY button and start
again from step 2. The unit will look for the next station.
Setting the clock (Remote control

Notes for radio text:
● The first 8 characters of the radio text will appear for 4
seconds and then they will scroll across the display.
● If you tune in to an RDS station which is not
broadcasting any radio text, “NO RT” will be displayed
when you switch to the radio text position.
● Whilst radio text data is received or when the text
contents change, “RT” will be displayed.

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 nonlabel 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.
