PREPARATION
CONNECTING POWER
Using Batteries
You can power the CD-3318 from any
of the following:
You can power the CD-3318 from eight
D batteries (not supplied). For the best
results, we recommend alkaline batteries (such as Radio Shack Cat. No. 23550).
• AC power using the supplied AC
power cord
• Eight D batteries (not supplied)
• Vehicle battery power using a DCto-AC inverter (not supplied)
Using AC Power
To power the CD-3318 from standard
AC power, plug the supplied AC power
cord into the AC IN~ jack, then plug the
other end into a standard AC outlet.
1. Press the two latches on the battery compartment cover and pull
out the cover to remove it.
2. Place the eight D batteries in the
compartment as indicated by the
polarity symbols (+ and –) marked
next to the battery compartment.
Caution: The supplied AC power cord
has a polarized plug that fits into the
outlet only one way. If the plug does
not fit properly, turn it over and try
again. Do not force it.
Note: The CD-3318 automatically disconnects internal batteries when you
connect the AC power cord.
Cautions:
• Use only fresh batteries of the
required size and type.
• Never mix old with new batteries.
• If you do not plan to use the
batteries in the CD-3318 for a
month or more, remove the batteries to protect the CD-3318
from possible battery leakage.
3. Replace the battery compartment
cover.
5
14-542.fm Page 6 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 3:38 PM
If the CD-3318 does not operate properly or if the sound weakens or distorts,
replace the batteries.
Cautions:
• Always dispose of the old batteries promptly and properly.
• Never leave dead, old, or weak
batteries in the CD-3318. They
can leak chemicals and corrode or
damage electronic circuits.
Using Your Vehicle’s Battery
You can power the CD-3318 from your
vehicle’s battery using a DC-to-AC inverter (such as Radio Shack Cat. No.
22-132, not supplied).
Cautions:
• To protect your vehicle’s electrical
system, always plug the AC power
cord into AC IN~ and the inverter
before you plug the inverter into
the cigarette lighter socket.
Always unplug the inverter from
the cigarette lighter socket before
you unplug the AC power cord
from AC IN~ and the inverter.
• The recommended inverter supplies 120 volts AC power and
delivers at least 315 milliamps.
Using an inverter that does not
meet these specifications could
damage the CD-3318.
6
1. Plug the supplied power cord into
the AC IN~ jack on the back of the
CD-3318.
2. Plug the AC power cord into the
power inverter’s AC jack.
3. Plug the power inverter into your
car’s cigarette lighter socket.
Note: If the CD-3318 does not operate
properly when you use the inverter, unplug the inverter from the cigarette
lighter socket and clean the socket to
remove ashes and debris. Also, check
the AC power cord for proper connection. If it still does not operate properly,
check the fuse in the inverter.
14-542.fm Page 7 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 3:38 PM
USING HEADPHONES
Listening Safely
For private listening, you can connect
a pair of stereo headphones (not supplied) with a 1/8-inch plug. Your local
Radio Shack store carries a wide selection of stereo headphones.
To protect your hearing, follow these
guidelines when you use headphones.
To connect the headphones, insert the
headphones’ 1/8-inch plug into the
PHONES jack.
• Set the volume to the lowest setting before you begin listening.
After you begin listening, adjust
the volume to a comfortable level.
• Do not listen at extremely high
volume levels. Extended highvolume listening can lead to
permanent hearing loss.
• Once you set the volume, do not
increase it. Over time, your ears
adapt to the volume level, so a
volume level that does not cause
discomfort might still damage your
hearing.
Traffic Safety
Note: Connecting the headphones automatically disconnects the built-in
speaker.
Do not wear headphones while operating a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle.
This can create a traffic hazard and is
illegal in some areas.
Even though some headphones are
designed to let you hear some outside
sounds when listening at normal volume levels, they still present a traffic
hazard.

CD CARE TIPS
Even though a compact disc is very
durable, treat the CD surface with
care. We recommend the following
precautions:
• Do not place anything but a CD in
the disc tray. This can damage the
drive mechanism.
• Do not write on either side of the
CD, particularly the non-label
side. (Signals are read from the
non-label side.)
• Do not store CDs in high-temperature, high-humidity locations. The
CDs might warp.
• Keep CDs dry. A water drop can
act as a lens and affect the laser
beam’s focus.
Using DISPLAY
During play, if you press DISPLAY
once, the display shows the number of
tracks and time remaining on the CD.
Press it again to see the total number
of tracks and playing time of the disc.
Press it once more to return to the display showing the current track number
and the elapsed track time.
• Always handle a CD by the edges
to avoid getting fingerprints on the
CD and always keep it in its protective case or sleeve when not in
use. Fingerprints and scratches
on the CD’s surface can prevent
the laser beam from correctly
reading the digital information. To
clean the CD surface, use a CD
Cleaner Kit (such as Cat. No. 42225).
• If you move the player from a cold
place to a warmer one, moisture
might condense on the pickup
lens, preventing proper disc play.
If this happens, wait 2 hours
before attempting to operate it
again.

TAPE CARE TIPS
Preventing Accidental
Erasure
Cassette tapes have two erase-protection tabs — one for each side. To protect
a recording from being accidentally recorded over or erased, use a screwdriver to remove one or both of the cassette
tape’s erase-protection tabs.
If you want to record over a tape side
after you have removed the erase-protection tab, place a piece of strong
plastic tape over that side’s erase-protection hole.
• Removing the erase-protection
tabs does not prevent a bulk
eraser from erasing a cassette
tape.
Erasing a Cassette Tape
If you no longer want a recording, you
can record over it or erase it.
• To erase the entire cassette tape,
record silence by setting the
RADIO.CD OFF switch to TAPE or
CD (with no other tape or CD
loaded) and press RECORD
on
Tape 1.
• To quickly erase a tape, use a
bulk tape eraser (such as Radio
Shack Cat. No. 44-232, not supplied).
Restoring Tape Tension and
Sound Quality
After you play a cassette tape several
times, the tape might become tightly
wound on the reels. This can cause
playback sound quality to deteriorate.
Notes:
• Be sure you cover only the hole
originally covered by the eraseprotection tab.
To restore the sound quality, fast-forward the tape from the beginning to the
end of one side, then completely rewind it. Then loosen the tape reels by
gently tapping each side of the cassette’s outer shell on a flat surface.
Caution: Be careful not to damage the
cassette when tapping it. Do not touch
the exposed tape or allow any sharp
objects near the cassette.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your Radio Shack CD-3318 is an example of superior design and craftsmanship.
The following suggestions will help you care for the CD-3318 so you can enjoy it for
years.
Keep the CD-3318 dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Water
contains minerals that can corrode electronic circuits.
Handle the CD-3318 carefully. Dropping it can damage the case and
circuit boards and cause the CD-3318 to work improperly.
Use the CD-3318 only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage
batteries, and warp or melt plastic parts.
Keep the CD-3318 away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
CLEANER
Wipe the CD-3318 with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking
new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the CD-3318.
Modifying or tampering with the CD-3318s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If the CD-3318 is not performing as it should, take it to your local Radio Shack
store for assistance.
