CASSETTE OPERATION
This Emerson Audio System features a dual cassette mechanism which allows
you to play pre-recorded cassette tapes in either Deck A or Deck B. You may also
load tapes in both decks for continuous automatic playback of two cassettes. You
may make tape recordings directly from the stereo receiver, the CD changer, the
Turntable, or external source connected to the AUX INPUT jacks, or even from
Tape to Tape (Dubbing) at either normal or high speed. The built in ALC (Automatic
Level Control) system adjusts the volume for distortion-free recordings. You can
change the playback volume control settings during recordings without effecting
the volume of the final recording.
For best results always use good quality blank tapes for recording. Although blank
tapes are available with various recording times we recommend that you do not
use tapes longer than C-90 which contain 90 minutes of recording time (45 minutes
per side). Longer tapes such as C-120’s (60 minutes per side) use thinner material
which may eventually stretch and can become tangled in the mechanism. Keep
the critical parts of the tape mechanisms clean to insure trouble free operation.
Refer to the cleaning instructions in the “CARE AND MAINTENANCE” section of
this manual.
CASSETTE PLAYBACK
1.) Press the “POWER” button to turn the system ‘On’.
2.) Press the “TAPE” button to select the ‘Tape’function. The “TAPE” indicator

ends the Automatic Stop System will release the “PLAY” key and shut off the
tape motor.

your tape.

To copy a previously recorded tape:
1.) Press “POWER” button to turn system ‘On’.
2.) Press “TAPE” button. The TAPE Indicator appears in the display.

“PLAY” key on Deck B. The Deck A “PAUSE” key will release automatically
and both tapes will start simultaneously. All the material on the pre-recorded
tape in Deck B will be copied onto the blank tape in Deck A.
RECORDING HINT: Try to use a blank tape that is the same length or just slightly
longer than your pre-recorded tape. This will enable you to fit all the material on the
copy without excessive ‘blank space’.
HIGH SPEED DUBBING
When copying from tape to tape, you can reduce the recording time by pressing
the “HIGH SPEED DUBBING” button to the ‘On’ position ( ON OFF). Both

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
ABOUT CASSETTE TAPES
Whenever you record on a cassette any previously recorded material is erased as
the new material is recorded. To prevent you from accidentally erasing material
which you wish to save, blank cassettes are equipped with erase prevention tabs
for each side of the tape. If the erase prevention tab for side A is removed, you
cannot accidentally record on side A. The record key cannot be depressed if the
erase prevention tab on the cassette has been removed.
To prevent accidental erasing on side A of a cassette use a small screw driver or
similar tool to break off the erase prevention tab for side A. This prevents the
record key from locking.

BREAK OFF TO PREVENT RECORDING
If later you do wish to record on side A of the cassette, cover the tab opening with
a piece of cellophane tape. This will allow the record key to function again.
CASSETTE CARE
Two common causes of trouble experienced when using cassettes are:
1.) Tape jamming — Leading to uneven speed in playback, and
2.) Tape tangling — Where the tape wraps itself around vital parts of the mechanism.
To reduce the likelihood of these problems occurring, the following precautions
should be observed:
• Check that there are no loose layers of tape visible
through the cassette center window (see Fig. 1).
Take up any loose layers, using a pencil or hexagonal
barrelled ballpoint pen, before inserting the cassette
into the machine (see Fig. 2).

•
If the cassette feels “tight” while performing operation
shown (see Fig. 2), the tape may be jamming due to
“ridges” formed in the winding of the tape
(visible through the center window). These may be
removed, in most cases, by fast winding of the cassette
from one end to the other and back again.
•
Use only well-known brands of tape. Avoid use of C-120 cassettes.
Furthermore, do not expose cassettes to direct sunlight, dust or oil, and do not touch
the tape surfaces.
HEAD CLEANING
The tape heads, pinch roller and capstan require periodic cleaning. This removes
particles of the metal oxide coating that wear off the tape and accumulate on these
parts and impair performance. Switch off the power, press the STOP/EJECT key to
open the cassette door, and press the PLAY key. Clean the tape heads, pinch roller
and capstan with a soft cloth or cotton pad dampened in isopropyl alcohol or special
tape head cleaner.

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 CABINETS
• If the cabinets become dusty wipe them with a soft dry dust cloth. Do not use
any wax or polish sprays on the cabinets.
• If the front panel becomes dirty or smudged with fingerprints it may be cleaned
with a soft cloth slightly dampened with a mild soap and water solution. Never
use abrasive cloths or polishes as these will mar the finish of your unit.
Caution: Never allow any water or other liquids to get inside the unit while
cleaning.
RESET BUTTON
If the unit does not respond to commands from the remote control or from the front
panel controls, the internal processor may be “locked” and must be reset. Use a
paper clip or similar object to press the “RESET” button which is located inside a
pin-hole behind the back panel.
