Important Safeguards
CAUTION
12 Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna is connected to the receiver,
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.
1 Heed Warnings - All warnings on the appliance and in the operating instructions
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 antennadischarge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the
grounding electrode.
should be adhered to.
G R O U N D CLAMP
4 Carts and Stands - The appliance should be used only with a cart or stand that is
ANTENNA DISCHARGE UNIT
(NEC SECTION 810-20)
recommended by the manufacturer.
● An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause
the appliance and cart combination to overturn.
5 Wall or Ceiling Mounting - The appliance should be mounted to a wall or ceiling
only as recommended by the manufacturer.
6 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.
7 Heat - The appliance should be situated away from heat sources such as
radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances (including amplifiers)
that produce heat.
8 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.
9 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.
10 Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
11 Power Lines - An outdoor antenna should be located away from power lines.

Precautions
■ General
● Please ensure that the equipment is positioned in a well ventilated area and
ensure that there is as least 4" (10 cm) of free space along the sides, top and
back of the unit.
4” (10 cm)
4” (10 cm)
4” (10 cm)
Warning:
The voltage used must be the same as that specified on this unit.
Using this product with a higher voltage other than that 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.
● Use the unit on a firm, level surface free from vibration.
● 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.
● Do not place anything on top of the unit.
● Do not expose the unit to moisture, to temperatures higher than 140°F (60°C)
or to extreme low temperatures.
● If your system does not work properly, disconnect the AC power cord from the
AC outlet. Plug the AC power cord back in, and then turn on your system.
● In case of an electrical storm, unplug the unit for safety.
The sound level at a given volume setting depends on 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.
■ Care of compact discs
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 from
which signals are read.
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
● Hold the AC power plug by the head when removing it
from the AC outlet, as pulling the cord can damage
internal wires.
● Do not remove the outer cover, as this may result
in electric shock. Refer internal service to your local SHARP service facility.
● This unit should only be used within the range of 41°F - 95°F (5°C - 35°C).

Many potential “problems” can be resolved by the owner without calling a service technician. If something is wrong with this product, check the following before calling your
authorized SHARP dealer or service center.
■ 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 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 with a soft cloth before operating the unit.

● 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 pickup lens) should be performed periodically.
Lens cleaners are commercially available. Contact your local CD software dealer
for options.
■ Cleaning the cabinet
Periodically wipe the cabinet with a soft cloth and a diluted
soap solution, then with a dry cloth.
Do not use oil, solvents, gasoline, paint thinners or insecticides on the unit.
