radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference
will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be determined by turning the 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.

PREPARATION FOR USE
Unpacking and Set Up
• Carefully remove the unit and the accessories from the carton and remove all the
packing material from the unit.
• Carefully remove any small strips of tape which may have been used to keep the CD
door closed during shipment.
• Open the CD compartment by pressing the OPEN button on top panel. Inside the CD
compartment you will see a “dummy CD” transit card which is used to prevent the
laser pick-up from moving during shipment. Carefully remove this card and close the
CD compartment door.
• Note the Serial Number on the bottom of your unit and write this number in the
space provided on the Warranty page of this manual.
• Please save the carton and packing materials in the event that your unit ever needs to
be returned for service. The original carton and packing materials are the only way to
protect the unit from damage during shipment.
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.

Power Sources
This unit is designed to operate on 8 “C” batteries, not included, or on normal 120V 60Hz
AC house current. Operating this unit from any other power source may cause damage
to the unit, and such damage is not covered by your warranty.
AC Operation
Connect the small end of the AC Power Cord to the AC socket on the back cabinet, then
insert the plug in any convenient household 120V 60Hz AC outlet.
NOTE: This unit has a polarized AC plug with one wide blade and one narrow
blade. This plug will only fit into a matching polarized AC outlet. This is a safety
feature to reduce the possibility of electric shock.
If this plug will not fit in your AC outlet, you
probably have an outdated non-polarized outlet.
You should have your outdated outlet changed
by a qualified, licensed electrician. Do not file
the wide blade on the plug, or use an adapter to
make the plug fit into your outlet. This defeats the
safety feature and could expose you to electric
shock.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
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.

smudged or dirty, clean it with a soft, slightly dampened cloth.
Never allow water or any liquid to get inside the cabinet.
Never use any abrasive cleaners or cleaning pads as these will damage the finish
of your CD Player.
