equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of the
following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment
and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit
different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV
technician for help.
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol,
within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert
the user to the presence of uninsulated
dangerous voltage within the product’s
enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to
constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
ATTENTION
The exclamation point within an equilateral
triangle is intended to alert the user to the
presence of important operating and
maintenance (servicing) instructions in the
literature accompanying the appliance.
DANGER:
Invisible and hazardous laser radiation when
open and interlock failed or defeated. Avoid
direct exposure to beam.
FCC WARNING:

PREPARATION FOR USE
Unpacking and Setup
•
Carefully remove the unit from the display carton and remove all packing material from the unit itself.
•
Remove any descriptive labels that may be found on either the front or top cabinet of the unit. Do not
remove any labels located on either the back or bottom cabinet of the unit.
•
The detachable AC power cord is packed in the carton separately from the unit. Make sure that the AC
power cord is not accidentally discarded with the carton or packing material.
•
Press the CD Door OPEN Button to open the CD compartment door. There is a white card in the CD
compartment which is intended to prevent the CD pickup from moving during shipment of the product.
Remove this card from the CD compartment before use.
Power Sources
This portable audio system is designed to operate on either 110-120V AC 60Hz house current or 12V DC,
using 8 ‘C’ batteries (UM-2), not included. Attempting to operate this unit from any other power source may
cause damage to the unit, which is not covered by your warranty.
AC Operation
Unwind the AC cord and extend it to its full length. Insert the small end of the AC cord into the AC socket on
the back cabinet of the unit. Insert the other end of the AC cord into any convenient 110-120V 60 Hz
household outlet.
AC Outlet
AC Plug
Please note that this unit is equipped with a polarized AC plug which has one blade wider than the other.
This is a safety feature to reduce the likelihood of electric shock. This polarized AC plug will only fit in a
polarized AC outlet. If you find that you cannot insert this plug into your outlet, you may have an obsolete
non-polarized outlet. Please do not try to defeat this safety feature by using a non-polarized adapter or by
filing the wider blade to make it fit into your outlet. If this plug does not fit into your outlet, you should contact
a qualified licensed electrician to replace your obsolete outlet.

Set the VOLUME Control to a low
setting.
Slide the FUNCTION Switch to
the RADIO position.
Slide the BAND Switch to a
desired setting – AM, FM, or FM
STEREO.
NOTE: If you select either the FM
or FM Stereo bands, be sure to
raise the FM rod antenna and
extend it to its full length.

6
Rotate the TUNING Control to find
the desired station.
NOTE: If the BAND Switch is set to
the FM STEREO position and you
have tuned to an FM Stereo station,
the FM STEREO LED Indicator will
light.
If you would like to experience
expanded stereo separation,
press the STEREO-WIDE Button.
The STEREO-WIDE Indicator
illuminates and the sound will
seem to expand as if the speakers
have moved further apart.
When you have finished listening,
slide the FUNCTION Switch to
the TAPE (Off) position to shut
the power off.
Hints for Better Reception
FM - Make sure that the telescopic FM Rod Antenna is raised and extended to its full length. You may have
to vary the direction of the antenna to find the strongest signal for each FM station. If you are listening to a
weak or distant FM Stereo station and reception is unsatisfactory, slide the BAND Switch to the FM (Mono)
position. This will normally provide an improvement in reception, although the sound will no longer be in
stereo.
AM - The AM ferrite bar antenna is located inside the cabinet. It may be necessary to turn the unit slightly so
that the internal antenna is pointing in the direction of the AM transmitter. You may have to experiment to
find the position that provides the strongest reception for each of your favorite AM stations.

SAFEGUARD AGAINST ACCIDENTAL ERASURE

Tab for side 2
SIDE
When a new recording is made, any program
material previously recorded is automatically
erased and only the new recording remains. To
safeguard valuable recordings from being erased
accidentally, the cassette and the deck are
equipped with a special device.
On the back of the cassette there is an erase
prevention tab on each side. To prevent
accidental erasing, break out these tabs with a
screwdriver. If only one side of the tape is to be
protected, break out the tab on the left side with
the side desired facing you.
To record on a tape in which the tab has been
broken, place a piece of adhesive tape over that
area.
Tab for side 1
Break out the tab
NOTE: When a tab is broken out, the record

CASSETTE TAPE RECOMMENDATIONS
Standard tape lengths have 15 (C-30), 30 (C-60) and 45 (C-90) minutes of recording time on each side.
Longer length tapes of 60 (C-120) minutes of recording time on each side are not recommended. Use only
high quality tapes. If a problem develops, check the unit first with another cassette to determine if the
problem is with the cassette, and not with the unit.
If there is any slack in the tape in the cassette, it should be removed before inserting the cassette. Place a
pencil in one of the hubs and rotate toward the outside of the cassette until all slack is taken up.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Caring for Compact Discs
• Treat the disc carefully. Handle the disc only by its edges.
Never allow your fingers to come in contact with the shiny,
unprinted side of the disc.
• Do not attach adhesive tape, stickers, etc. to the disc label.
• 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.
• If a disc skips or gets stuck on a section of the disc, it is probably dirty or damaged (scratched).
• When cleaning the disc, wipe in straight lines from the center of the disc to the outer edge of the disc.
Never wipe in circular motions.
B ENZEN E
C LE A N E R
COMPACT
• This unit is designed to play only compact discs bearing the identification logo as shown here.
Other discs may not conform to the CD standard and may not play properly.
DIGITAL AUDIO
• Compact Discs should be stored in their cases after each use to avoid damage.
• Do not expose compact discs to direct sunlight, high humidity, high temperatures, or dust, etc. Prolonged
exposure or extreme temperatures can warp the disc.
• Do not stick or write anything on either side of the disc. Sharp writing instruments, or the ink may damage
the surface.
Cleaning the unit
• To prevent fire or shock hazard, disconnect your unit from the AC power source when cleaning.
• The finish on your unit may be cleaned with a dust cloth and cared for as other furniture. Use caution
when cleaning and wiping the plastic parts.
• Mild soap and a damp cloth may be used on the front panel.
• Periodic cleaning of the tape heads, capstan and pinch roller is necessary to maintain good sound
reproduction. Clean them after every 100 hours of use or less if playback has deteriorated. Use a cotton
swab moistened with head cleaning solution or isopropyl alcohol, then wipe dry with another swab.

How do you make your warranty claim?
If it becomes necessary to repair your unit, you can obtain the name and mailing location of a Depot Repair Facility by
dialing 1-800-695-0098. You should pack your unit in a well-padded heavy corrugated box, enclose your check or
money order payable to the Depot Repair Facility in the amount of $9.00 to cover the return shipping and handling
costs, and enclose a copy of your proof of purchase (warranty service will not be provided without a dated proof of
purchase). Finally, you should ship the unit prepaid via UPS or parcel post (insured).

• Damage from negligence, misuse, abuse, accident, or failure to follow operating instructions.
• Use of product in a commercial application or rentals.
