PREPARING YOUR CD CHANGER
CONNECTING THE CD CHANGER TO YOUR
RECEIVER/AMPLIFIER
CONNECTING TO ANOTHER DIGITAL AUDIO
PRODUCT
Caution: Do not connect the CD changer to AC power
until you complete all other connections.
You can connect the CD changer to another digital audio
product such as a digital recorder. You need an optical
cable (available through your local RadioShack store) for
this connection. To make the connection, remove the
protective dust cap from the digital jacks, and connect the
optical cable to the jacks.
1.
Select a location for your CD changer that is near your
receiver/amplifier and a standard AC outlet.
2.
Plug one end of the supplied audio cable into the CD
changer’s L (left) and R (right) LINE OUT jacks,
matching the red plug to the red R LINE OUT jack and
the white plug to the white L LINE OUT jack.
Note: Be sure to leave the dust cap in place when you are
not using the jack.
Plug the other end of the audio cable into the receiver’s
or amplifier’s left and right CD, AUX, or TAPE input
jacks.
CONNECTING POWER
3.
Cautions
• Do not connect the CD changer to the receiver’s or
amplifier’s PHONO inputs.
• Do not place the CD changer on top of the receiver/
amplifier or any other component that gets hot.
Note: If you place the CD changer too near other audio
components or their wires, you might hear a hum when you
play a CD. Move the components or their wires to eliminate
the hum.

After you have connected the CD changer to your receiver
or amplifier, plug the CD changer’s power cord into a
standard AC outlet.
Caution: To prevent electric shock, the plug’s blades are
polarized and fit only one way. If the plug does not fit easily,
turn it over and try again. Do not force the plug into any AC
outlet.
Note: Do not connect the CD changer’s power cord to an
amplifier or other switched outlet. The CD changer loses
memorized settings when power is removed.
CONNECTING TO A CASSETTE DECK’S
SYNCHRO JACK
The Synchro-Record feature lets you easily copy CDs to
cassette tapes. If you have a cassette deck that has a
CD•DECK SYNCHRO jack, the CD changer can
automatically start and stop with the cassette deck. Connect
the CD•deck synchro-cord, supplied with the cassette deck,
to the CD changer’s and cassette deck’s CD•DECK SYNCHRO
jacks.
For details on connection and operation refer to the cassette
deck’s owner’s manual.
5
INSTALLING THE REMOTE CONTROL’S
BATTERIES
USING A RECEIVER’S REMOTE CONTROL
WITH THE CD CHANGER
Your CD changer’s remote control requires two AA
batteries (not supplied) for power. We recommend
alkaline batteries, available from your local RadioShack
store.
l. Press in the battery compartment cover’s latch and lift
off the cover.
2. Put two fresh AA batteries into the compartment as
indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –) marked
inside.
3. Replace the cover.
If your receiver/amplifier has an OSR mark, the receiver/
amplifier’s remote can control some of the CD changer’s
functions.
Plug one end of the supplied control cable into the CD
changer’s CONTROL IN jack. Plug the other end of the cable
into the receiver/amplifier’s CONTROL OUT jack.
Cautions:
• Use only fresh batteries of the required size and
recommended type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of
batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable) or
rechargeable batteries of different capacities.
• Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can
leak chemicals that can damage electronic circuits.
• If you do not plan to use the remote control for a
month or more, remove and store the batteries.
Note: If the remote’s range is reduced, replace the batteries
immediately.
6
Notes:
• This connection disables the CD changer’s infrared
sensor. Aim the remote control at the receiver/amplifier’s
infrared sensor.
• When you connect the CD changer to your receiver by
digital output only, the receiver’s remote control does
not operate your CD changer.
For details on connection and operation, refer to the
receiver/amplifier’s owner’s manual.
BASIC OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Warning: To protect your hearing, set the volume on your
receiver or amplifier to its lowest level before you load and
play a CD.
Caution: Do not set the volume on your receiver or
amplifier too high while playing soft or quiet portions of a
music program. Due to the CD changer’s wide dynamic
range, the speakers might be damaged if the music program
includes a sudden loud passage.
USING THE REMOTE CONTROL
Many of the CD changer’s buttons also have a
corresponding button on the remote control, and you can
use either the CD changer or the remote control to control
the function.
To use the remote control, point it at the infrared sensor
on the front panel and press the control button.
When the remote control’s operating distance reduces or if
the remote control stops working, replace the batteries.
Note: The remote operates the CD changer from up to 23
feet away and within 30º of the front of the CD changer.
The multi-disc rack holds 100 CDs. The disc slots are
numbered in clockwise order, from 1 to 100, and can hold
either 3-inch or 5-inch CDs.
Follow these steps to load up to 100 CDs in the slots.
Press POWER to turn on the CD changer. If necessary,
repeatedly press 2 DISC NUMBER 3 (or 2 DISC 3
on the remote) so the slot number you want appears
on the display.

PLAYING TRACKS IN RANDOM ORDER
PROGRAMMING A SEQUENCE
With play stopped, press RANDOM. RANDOM appears on
the display, and random play starts in the selected play
mode.
You can program up to 36 selections from all loaded CDs
to play in any order you choose. A selection can be a
single track or an entire CD.
SINGLE - randomly plays all of the current CD’s tracks.
Once all the CD’s tracks have played, the CD changer stops.
Follow these steps to program a sequence.
ALL - selects a track from a CD and plays the track, then
repeatedly selects another CD and plays another track. When
the CD changer finishes playing 100 selections (or as many
as possible from the CDs that are loaded), it stops.
1.
Press 7 to cancel the current function.
2.
Press PGM on the remote control (or PROGRAM on
the front panel). PGM appears on the display.
3.
Select the CD that contains the first track you want to
program using the remote control’s number buttons and
DISC SET. The selected CD’s number and AL appear.
CUSTOM - selects a track from a CD in a custom CD group
and plays the track, then repeatedly selects another CD in
the same group and plays another track. When the CD
changer finishes playing 100 selections (or as many as
possible from the CDs that are loaded), it stops.
To cancel random play and continue normal play, select a
disc other than the one currently playing, either by
pressing 2 DISC NUMBER 3 or by using the remote
control’s number buttons, then pressing DISC SET. To stop
random play, press 7.
Notes:
• During play, press RANDOM to skip the track currently
playing and advance to the next random selection.
• You can switch between the ALL or SINGLE modes
during random play.
• If the CD changer does not have 100 CDs loaded, the
CD changer might select the same track or CD more
than once.
• You can use repeat during random play.
• If you start random play during programmed play, the
program’s contents are erased and the CD changer starts
ALL random play.
You can also use 2 DISC NUMBER 3 (or 2 DISC 3 on
the remote) and press PGM to select a CD. The disc
number and AL appear. If you do not select a track
within about 2 seconds, the entire CD is automatically
stored.
If you program an entire CD, skip to Step 5.
4.
Select the track you want to program using the remote
control’s number buttons and TRACK SET.
The displayed track and disc numbers are stored in the
first memory position.
You can also use ¢ or 4 then press PGM (or
PROGRAM) to select a track.
5.
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 for each track or CD you want to
program, up to 36 selections.
6.
Press 6. The CD changer plays the sequence.
Notes:
• If you try to program a nonexistent CD or track
(for example track 10 when a CD has only nine
tracks), the CD changer ignores the entry.
• Press ¡ ¢ or 4 1 to move forward or
backward through the programmed sequence while
the sequence plays.
After the CD changer plays the last track in the
programmed sequence, it stops, but the programmed
sequence is still in memory. Press PGM then 3 to restart
programmed play.
To clear the sequence, see “Clearing a Programmed
Sequence” on Page 14.

Programming a Sequence while a CD is
Playing
Storing a Pause within a Programmed
Sequence for Recording to Cassette
While the CD changer is playing, you can program a
sequence of tracks, but not an entire CD. Press PGM
during play, then select the CD and track using the remote
control’s number buttons and DISC SET/TRACK SET, and
press PGM. When the current track finishes playing or you
press 3, programmed play starts.
Or, you can store the track currently being played directly
into memory. While the track is playing, press PGM once
to enter the program mode, then press PGM again to store
the current track. You might find this feature convenient
to use along with hi-lite scan.
When you record a programmed sequence onto a cassette
tape, you can program a pause to occur after the last
selection you plan to record on the first side of the tape
(so you can turn the tape over).
Erasing a Programmed Selection
Notes:
• You cannot program a pause as the first or last selection.
• You cannot program two pauses in a row.
In the program mode (when PGM appears on the display),
press CLEAR to erase the last-stored selection (track or
CD). The new last-stored selection appears on the display
until you press 6 (or 3 on the remote control).
Note: You cannot erase a selection that is currently
playing or that has already played.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
CARING FOR CDS
Precautions for Use
Treat the CD surface with care. Although a CD lasts
indefinitely with normal use, we recommend the
following precautions:
• Handle a CD by its edge to avoid fingerprints, which
can prevent the CD changer’s laser beam from reading
the CD. CD cleaner kits are available at your local
RadioShack store.
• Keep the CD dry. A water drop can act as a lens and
affect the laser beam’s focus.
• CDs that this changer can play have this mark on
them:
CARING FOR THE CD-9400
Your RCA CD-9400 Compact Disc Changer is an example
of superior design and craftsmanship. The following
suggestions will help you care for the CD changer so you
can enjoy it for years.
Keep the CD changer dry. If it gets wet, wipe it
dry immediately. Liquids can contain minerals
that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Handle the CD changer gently and carefully.
Dropping it can damage its circuit boards and
cases and can cause the changer to work
improperly.
Use and store the CD changer only in normal
temperature environments. Temperature
extremes can shorten the life of electronic
devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt
plastic parts.
Keep the CD changer away from dust and dirt,
which can cause premature wear of parts.
Wipe the CD changer with a damp cloth
occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use
harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong
detergents to clean the CD changer.
Use only fresh batteries of the recommended
size and type in the remote control. Always
remove old or weak batteries. They can leak
chemicals that destroy electronic circuits.
Modifying or tampering with your CD changer’s internal
components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate
the CD changer’s warranty and void your FCC
authorization to operate it.
• The CD-9400 has a wide dynamic range. As a result, if
you turn your amplifier’s volume up too high during
low-volume sections of a program, you might damage
your speakers when a sudden loud passage is
produced.
• During play, if the changer is subjected to a sudden
shock or jolt, the CD’s rotation speed might suddenly
change, causing the changer to momentarily become
silent. This is not a malfunction.
• If you move the changer, be sure the CDs has been
removed. This prevents possible damage to the CDs.
• Do not move the changer suddenly from a very cold
room into a warm room. This can cause moisture to
condense on the pickup lens, preventing proper CD
play. If this happens, wait at least 30 minutes before
resuming play.
• Do not place foreign objects in the CD slot. Doing so
can damage the CD changer.
CD Care Tips
Even though a CD is very durable, you should handle it
with care.
• Keep the CD inside the CD changer or in its protective
case or sleeve when you are not playing it.
• Handle a CD by its edges to avoid fingerprints which
can prevent the CD changer’s laser beam from
accurately reading the CD. Your local RadioShack store
sells a suitable CD cleaner kit.
• Do not write on either side of the CD, particularly the
non-label side. (Signals are read from the non-label
side.)
• Keep the CD dry. A water drop can act as a lens and
affect the laser beam’s focus.
If a CD skips or the CD changer displays U1 when you try
to play it, it might be scratched. Your local RadioShack
store sells a Scratch ‘n Fix kit that might help remove the
scratch and stop the skip. See also “Troubleshooting” on
Page 16.

following corrective measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the distance between the CD changer and the radio or TV.
• Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the CD changer and the radio or TV.
Consult your local RadioShack store or an experienced radio/TV technician if the problem still exists.
