IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
CAUTION
All the safety and operating instructions should be read
before the appliance is operated, and should be retained for
future reference.
Electrical energy can perform many useful functions. This
unit has been engineered and manufactured to assure your
personal safety. Improper use can result in potential electrical shock or fire hazards. In order not to defeat the
safeguards, observe the following basic rules for its installation, use and servicing.
12 Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna is connected
to the receiver, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as
to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up
static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984, provides information with respect to
proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding
of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to
grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding
electrode.
EXAMPLE OF ANTENNA GROUNDING AS PER
NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE
1 Heed Warnings - All warnings on the appliance and in the operating instructions should be adhered to.
2 Follow Instructions - All operating and use instructions should be
ANTENNA LEAD
IN WIRE
followed.
3 Water and Moisture - The appliance should not be used near
water - for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink,
laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, etc.
4 Carts and Stands - The appliance should be used only with a
cart or stand that is recommended by the manufacturer.

a wall or ceiling only as recommended by the manufacturer.
Ventilation - The appliance should be situated so that its location
or position does not interfere with its proper ventilation. For example, the appliance should not be situated on a bed, sofa, rug,
or similar surface that may block the ventilation openings; or,
placed in a built-in installation, such as a bookcase or cabinet
that may impede the flow of air through the ventilation openings.
Heat - The appliance should be situated away from heat sources
such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
Power Sources - The appliance should be connected to a power
supply only of the type described in the operating instructions or
as marked on the appliance.
Power-Cord Protection - Power-supply cords should be routed
so that they are not likely to be walked on or pinched by items
placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords
at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit
from the appliance.
Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth
for cleaning.
Power Lines - An outdoor antenna should be located away from
power lines.

Object and Liquid Entry - Care should be taken so that objects
do not fall and liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through
openings.
Damage Requiring Service - The appliance should be serviced
by qualified service personnel when:
The power-supply cord or the plug has been damaged; or
Objects have fallen, or liquid has been spilled into the appliance;
or
The appliance has been exposed to rain; or
The appliance does not appear to operate normally or exhibits a
marked change in performance; or
The appliance has been dropped, or the enclosure damaged.
Servicing - The user should not attempt to service the appliance
beyond that described in the operating instructions. All other servicing should be referred to qualified service personnel.

PRECAUTIONS
■ General
■ Care of compact discs
● Please make sure that the unit is positioned in a well ventilated area and that there is at least 4" (10 cm) of free
space along the sides and back. There must also be a
minimum of 8" (20 cm) of free space on the top of the
unit.
● Do not use oil, solvents, gasoline, paint thinners or insecticides on the unit.
● Do not expose the unit to moisture, to temperatures higher
than 140˚F (60˚C) or to extreme low temperatures.
● Keep the unit away from direct sunlight, strong magnetic
fields, excessive dust, humidity and electronic/electrical
equipment (home computers, facsimiles, etc.) which
generates electrical noise.
● Hold the AC power plug by the head when removing it
from the AC outlet, as pulling the cord can damage internal
wires.
● When cleaning the heads, pinch rollers, etc, remove the
AC power plug from the AC outlet as the unit contains
high voltages.
Do not remove the outer cover, as this may result in
electric shock. Refer internal service to your local SHARP
service facility.
● Use the unit on a firm, level surface free from vibration,
and do not place anything on the top of the unit.
● If the unit does not work properly while in use, disconnect
the AC power cord from the AC outlet. Plug the AC power
cord back in, and then press the ON/STAND-BY button
to turn the power on.
● If an electrical storm is taking place near you, it is suggested that you disconnect the AC power cord from the
AC outlet for safety.
Compact discs are fairly resistant to damage, however
mistracking can occur due to an accumulation of dirt on the
disc surface.
Follow the guidelines below for maximum enjoyment from
your CD collection and player.
● Do not write on either side of the disc, particularly the
non-label side. Signals are read from the non-label side.
Do not mark this surface.
● Keep your discs away from direct sunlight, heat, and excessive moisture.
● Always hold the CDs by the edges. Fingerprints, dirt, or
water on the CDs can cause noise or mistracking. If a CD
is dirty or does not play properly, clean it with a soft, dry
cloth, wiping straight out from the center, along the radius.
NO
YES
Correct
■ Cassette tape
● For playback, use normal or low-noise tape for the best
sound. (Metal or CrO2 tape is not recommended.)
For recording, use only normal tape.
● Do not use C-120 tapes, tapes with large diameter reels,
or poor-quality tapes, as they may cause malfunctions.
● Before loading a tape into the cassette compartment,
tighten the slack with a pen or pencil.
● Cassettes have removable tabs which prevent accidental
recording or erasing from taking place. Removing the tab
will protect the corresponding side from being erased.
Cover the tab holes with adhesive tape to erase or record
again.
● TAPE 1: Playback only.
TAPE 2: Playback or record.
Warning:
The voltage used must be the same as that specified on
this unit. Using this product with a higher voltage other than
which is specified is dangerous and may result in a fire or
other type of accident causing damage. SHARP will not be
held responsible for any damage resulting from use of this
unit with a voltage other than that which is specified.
■ Volume control
The sound level at a given volume setting depends on a
combination of speaker efficiency, location and various other
factors.
It is advisable to avoid exposure to high volume levels, which
occur while turning the unit on with the volume control setting
up high, or while continually listening at high volumes.
Side A (1)
■ Condensation
Sudden temperature changes, storage or operation in an extremely humid environment may cause condensation inside
the cabinet (CD pickup, tape heads, etc.) or on the transmitter LED on the remote control.
Condensation can cause the unit to malfunction.
If this happens, leave the power on with no disc (or cassette)
in the unit until normal playback is possible (about 1 hour).
Wipe off any condensation on the transmitter LED with a
soft cloth before operating the unit.

MAINTENANCE
■ Internal care
TAPE 1
TAPE 2
● Dirty heads, capstans or pinch rollers can cause poor sound
and tape jams. Clean these parts with a cotton swab moistened with commercial head/pinch roller cleaner or isopropyl
alcohol.
● After long use, the deck’s heads and capstans may become
magnetized, causing poor sound. Demagnetize these parts
once every 30 hours of playing/recording time by using a commercial tape head demagnetizer. Read the demagnetizer’s instructions carefully before use.
● In order to ensure proper operation of the CD player, preventative maintenance (cleaning of the Laser Pick-up lens) should
be performed periodically in order to keep the lens dust-free.
Lens cleaners are commercially available. Contact your local
CD software dealer for options.
■ External care
● Periodically wipe the cabinet with a soft cloth and a diluted
soap solution, then wipe with a dry cloth.
● Do not use chemically treated cleaning cloths or other chemicals.
