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 non-migrating
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 centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the
bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

MAKING A TAPE RECORDING
This model allows you to make tape recordings directly from the CD player, or the
radio.
• Refer to “PLAYING COMPACT DISCS” if necessary to operate the CD
player.
• Refer to “LISTENING TO THE RADIO” if necessary to tune in the station
you wish to record from radio.
1.) Press the Stop/Eject
key to open the cassette door..
2.) Insert a good quality blank cassette tape into the slots on the cassette door
with the open end facing up and the full reel on the right. Use normal tape only.
Do not use tape identified as “CrO2” (Chrome) or “Metal” tape formulations.
For best results use tapes of 60 minutes (C-60) or less. Do not use 90 minute
or 120 minute tapes as these thinner tapes are more likely to jam in the
mechanism.
3.) Close the cassette door.
4.) When you are ready to start recording press the Record
key. The Play
key will also engage. The CD you are playing, or radio program you selected
will be recorded directly on to the tape.
5.) Press the Pause
key during recording to stop the tape temporarily and
avoid recording unwanted material such as radio commercials.
6.) When you have finished recording press the Stop/Eject
key to stop and
nd
remove the tape.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
ABOUT CASSETTE TAPES
Whenever you record on a cassette any previously recorded material is erased as
the new material is recorded. To prevent you from accidentally erasing material
which you wish to save, blank cassettes are equipped with erase prevention tabs
for each side of the tape. If the erase prevention tab for side A is removed, you
cannot accidentally record on side A. The record key cannot be depressed if the
erase prevention tab on the cassette has been removed.
To prevent accidental erasing on side A of a cassette use a small screw driver or
similar tool to break off the erase prevention tab for side A. This prevents the
record key from locking.
A
TAB FOR SIDE A
BREAK OUT TO PREVENT RECORDING
If later you do wish to record on side A of the cassette, cover the tab opening with
a piece of cellophane tape. This will allow the record key to function again.

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 themechanism.
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 center 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” 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 center window). 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.
HEAD CLEANING
The tape heads, pinch roller and capstan require periodic cleaning. This removes
particles of the metal oxide coating that wear off the tape and accumulate on these
parts and impair performance. Switch off the power, press the Stop/Eject
key to
key. Clean the tape heads, pinch roller
open the cassette door, and press the Play
and capstan with a soft cloth or cotton pad dampened in isopropyl alcohol or special
tape head cleaner.

COMPACT DISC CARE
• To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the center of the case
and lift the disc out, holding it carefully by the edges.
• Fingerprints and dust should be carefully wiped off the disc’s 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 CABINET
If the cabinet becomes dusty wipe it with a soft dry dust cloth. Do not use any wax,
polish sprays, or abrasive cleaners on the cabinet.
CAUTION
Never allow any water or other liquids to get inside the unit while cleaning.
