PROTECT YOUR FURNITURE
,
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber feet to prevent the product from
,
moving when you operate the controls. These feet are made from nonmigrating rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or
stains on your furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture polishes,
,
wood preservatives, or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber feet to soften,
and leave marks or a rubber residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to
your furniture we strongly recommend that you purchase small self-adhesive felt
pads, available at hardware stores and home improvement centres everywhere,
,
and apply these pads to the bottom of the rubber feet before you place the
product on fine wooden furniture.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
CASSETTE CARE
Two common causes of trouble experienced when using cassettes are:
1.) Tape jamming - Leading to uneven speed in playback, and
2.) Tape tangling - Where the tape wraps itself around vital parts of the
mechanism.
To reduce the likelihood of these problems occurring, the following precautions
should be observed:
Check that there are no loose layers of tape
visible through the cassette centre window (see
Fig. 1). Take up any loose layers, using a pencil or
hexagonal barrelled ballpoint pen, before inserting
the cassette into the machine (see Fig.2).
,,
If the cassette feels
tight
,,
Fig. 1
while performing
operation shown (see Fig.2), the tape may be
,,
jamming due to ridges formed in the winding of
,,
the tape (visible through the centre window).
Fig. 2
These may be removed, in most cases, by fast
winding of the cassette from one end to the other
and back again.
Use only well-known brands of tape. Avoid use of C-120 cassettes.
Furthermore, do not expose cassettes to direct sunlight, dust or oil, and do not
touch the tape surfaces.
16
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
COMPACT DISC CARE
To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the centre of the case
and lift the disc out, holding it carefully by the edges.
Fingerprints and dust should be carefully wiped off the discs recorded
surface with a soft cloth. Unlike conventional records, compact discs have no
grooves to collect dust and microscopic debris, so gently wiping with a soft
cloth should remove most particles. Wipe in a straight line from the inside to
the outside of the disc. Small dust particles and light stains will have
absolutely no effect on reproduction quality.
Clean the disc periodically with a soft, lint-free, dry cloth. Never use
detergents or abrasive cleaners to clean the disc. If necessary, use a CD
cleaning kit.
Never write on or affix labels to the surface of compact discs.
CARE OF THE CABINETS
You should care for the cabinet as you would care for any piece of the furniture.
When the cabinet becomes dusty wipe it with a soft, non-abrasive dust cloth. If
the cabinet becomes smudged with fingerprints you may use any good quality
commercial dusting and polishing spray cleaner, however avoid spraying the
plastic or metal parts of this system. We recommend that you spray the cleaner
on your dust cloth, not directly on the cabinet, to avoid getting any of the spray
on the plastic or metal parts.
