PREPARATION FOR USE
UNPACKING AND SET UP
• Carefully remove the unit from the carton and remove all packing materials from
the unit.
• Carefully remove any small strips of tape which may have been used to keep
the CD and Cassette doors closed during shipment.
• Open the CD compartment by placing you finger under center of the CD door
and lifting upward. Inside the CD compartment you will see a white 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.
• 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.
POWER SOURCES
This unit is designed to operate on 6 pcs “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probably have an outdated non-polarized outlet. You should have your outdated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.

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.

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.
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.
