player.
Slide the OPEN switch to the right to unlock the CD door. Remove the ‘transit card’
from the player and discard it.
POWER SOURCES
This personal CD/MP3 player is designed to operate on two “AA” batteries, not
included. Use a well known brand of Alkaline batteries for longest life and best
performance.
This player can also be operated by with an optional AC/DC converter/adapter, not
included. If you decide to purchase an optional AC/DC adapter the specification
must be as follows:
Input: 120V 60Hz AC

You may also purchase a “Universal” type AC/DC adapter which allows you to
select the required output voltage and plug polarity, and normally includes multiple
plug sizes to fit most brands of equipment. Always look for the “UL” listing mark
when you purchase an adapter.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
HOLD Switch
The HOLD switch on the left side of the cabinet must
CD HOLD
be in the ‘Off’(left) position to start the CD player. If
you plan to carry the CD player in a handbag,
briefcase, school bag, back pack, etc, slide the HOLD
PLAY
switch to the ‘On’(right) position. While the HOLD switch is ‘On’all of the controls
on the CD door are disabled. This prevents the player from starting accidentally by
something pressing against the PLAY/PAUSE button.
After you begin CD playback you may also slide the HOLD switch to the ‘On’(right)
position to disable all the controls on the CD door. You can then place the player in
a handbag, backpack, etc, and do not have to worry that the player will be
accidentally turned off by something pressing against the STOP/CLEAR button or
Track Skip buttons.
Dynamic Bass Boost (DBB) and Preset Equalizer (EQ) Functions
During CD playback you may press the EQ button repeatedly to activate the
Dynamic Bass Boost function or select one of the four preset equalizer settings
(POP/CLASSIC/JAZZ/ROCK).
Pressing the EQ button repeatedly will cycle the player through the following modes:
DBB (Dynamic Bass Boost ‘On)
FLAT (EQ ‘Off’)
POP
CLASSIC
JAZZ
ROCK
DBB.
The selected mode will appear in the display for a few seconds and then the PLAY
indicator reappears.
When the disc stops or is removed from the player the EQ returns to the original
default setting (DBB ‘Off’/ EQ ‘Off’).

Electronic Skip Protection (ESP)
This CD player includes an Electronic Skip Protection circuit that continuously
stores 40 seconds of CD music (100 seconds for MP3 discs) in an electronic
memory. If the player is bumped or shaken you will not hear any skipping because
the player is reading from the memory, not directly from the disc. Of course if the
shaking continues for more than 40 seconds (100 seconds for an MP3 disc) the
ESP memory will be depleted and that player may skip or stop if the shaking
continues.
To activate the ESP memory function during playback press the ESP button. The
display will show “ESP ON” momentarily, then the ESP meter
will appear and
begin to fill up with bars. Each bar represents approximately 10 seconds of music
in the memory (25 seconds for an MP3 disc). When all 4 bars appear
the
memory contains 40 seconds of music (100 seconds for an MP3 disc). If the
player is bumped or shaken one or more of the bars may disappear as the memory
is depleted
. When the shaking stops the memory will fill up again.
To deactivate the ESP function, press the ESP button again. “ESP OFF” will appear
briefly in the display.
Notes:
• The ESP circuit draws additional current from the batteries. To extend the
battery life leave the ESP circuit ‘Off’when the unit is used in a stable location
not subject to bumps and shakes.
• When the ESP circuit is switched ‘On’or ‘Off’the sound will be interrupted for
2 to 5 seconds. This is normal and not an indication of any problem with the
player.
• When playing an MP3 disc the ESP circuit is activated automatically and cannot
be switched ‘Off’.

the headphones.
IMPORTANT:
This CD player can play normal CDs plus CD Recordable (CD-R) and CD
Rewriteable (CD-RW) discs. However the playability of CD-R and CD-RW discs
may be affected by the type of software that was used in ‘ripping’the tracks from
the original discs and ‘burning’the tracks onto the blank media. Playability may
also be affected by the quality and condition of the blank media you use for
recording. 100% compatibility cannot be guaranteed. This is not an indication of
any problems with your player.
1.) Slide the CD door OPEN switch to the right to unlock
and open the CD door.

MP3 CD PLAYBACK
CDs that contain compressed MP3 audio files can store approximately 10 times
as much music as a normal CDs. It is possible to record up to 10 hours of music in
MP3 format on a single disc.
Audio files may be downloaded from the Internet onto your computer’s hard drive
or ‘ripped’from normal CDs. They are then compressed into MP3 format files by
software on your computer and recorded or ‘burned’onto blank discs.
Typically when making your own MP3 CDs you will organize the song titles into
‘Directories’, also called ‘Albums’, by artist, or by type of music. The software in
this CD player can recognize up to 99 ‘Directories’containing up to a total of 300
“files” or tracks.
NOTE: Because MP3 CDs contain so much more information than normal CDs
this CD player will take longer to ‘Read’all of the information on an MP3 disc after
you press the PLAY/PAUSE button. You may see the “READING” indicator for a
minute or more before playback begins. This is normal and not an indication of any
problem with your player.
Most of the normal CD operations described in this manual also apply to MP3
CDs. However there are a few differences in MP3 CD playback functions, and
these are described on the following pages.

MP3 CD “READING” TIME AND DISPLAY INFORMATION
As mentioned on previous page, because MP3 CDs contain much more information
than normal CDs it takes longer for the player to ‘Read’an MP3 disc and display
the Table of Contents information.
After you load an MP3 CD in the player and press the PLAY/PAUSE button the
player will read each of the ‘Directories’(or ‘Albums’) on the disc, one at a time,
and display the Directory Number and the cumulative number of tracks in the
directories that have already been read. For example if we insert an MP3 CD
containing 11 ‘Directories’(or ‘Albums’) and a total of 172 “files” or tracks, the
display sequence will be as follows:

IMPORTANT! RESETTING THE SYSTEM MEMORY
If this player is subject to a severe electric shock (ESD) or a repeated, intentional
series of incorrect key commands, the system memory may “freeze” and the player
will not respond to any further key commands. If you find that the player is not
responding when you operate the controls, first make sure that the batteries are
not dead.
If the batteries are OK, open the CD door for 10 seconds, re-close it, and try the
operation again. If the player still fails to respond, remove the batteries from the
unit, wait at least one minute for the system memory to clear, and then re-install
the batteries.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
CLEANING THE CABINET
Wipe with a soft cloth. If the cabinet is very dirty, dampen the cloth with a weak
solution of neutral detergent and water, and then wipe clean.
CLEANING THE LENS
A dirty lens will cause sound skipping and, if the lens is very dirty, the CD may not
work. Open the disc cover and clean the lens as follows:
DUST OR DRY PARTICLES
Using a camera lens brush/blower, blow on the lens
several times, then wipe it lightly with the brush to remove
dust. Then, blow on the lens once more.
FINGERPRINTS
To remove fingerprints from the lens, use a cotton swab
starting in the middle and working to the outside edge.
Use only very light pressure on the lens to avoid forcing
it out of alignment.
CLEANING THE DISC
When a disc becomes dirty, clean it with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the
center out.
NOTE:
Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners or
anti-static spray intended for analog discs.
