AUTOMATIC STOP
This cassette player has a built-in

CASSETTE TAPE USAGE
Longer length tapes of 45 (C-90) and
60 (C-120) minutes of playing time on
each side are not recommended.
These tapes use thinner material and
have a greater chance for malfunction
such as tape spillage from the cassette,
internal binding and tape tearing. Use
only high quality tapes. If there is any
slack in the tape, remove it before
inserting the cassette. To do so, place a pencil in one of the hubs and
rotate it until the slack is taken up.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Clean the tape head, capstan and pinch roller using a cotton swab
slightly moistened with alcohol. Avoid scratching the head surface.
To clean the unit housing, use a soft cloth slightly dampened with
water and wipe dry.
To stop the tape before it reaches
the end, push the STOP button.
