POWER SOURCES
You can power the CD-3315 from:
• Internal battery power, using six D batteries
• Standard AC power, using the
supplied AC power cord and an
AC outlet or your vehicle and an
optional DC-to-AC inverter
USING INTERNAL BATTERIES
You can power the CD-3315 from six
D batteries (not supplied). For the
best results, we recommend alkaline
batteries, such as Radio Shack Cat.
No. 23-550.
1. Press down on the two tabs
above the battery compartment
cover and pull out the cover to
remove it.
Cautions:
• To protect the CD-3315 from
possible battery leakage,
never leave dead, weak, or
old batteries in the CD-3315.
• If you do not plan to use the
CD-3315 for a month or more,
or if you plan to use the external AC power cord, remove
the batteries.
3. Insert six D batteries in the compartment as indicated by the
polarity symbols (+ and –)
marked above the compartment.
Cautions:
2. If necessary, remove and dispose of the old batteries.
• Use only fresh batteries of the
recommended size and type.
• Never mix fresh and old batteries.
4. Replace the battery compartment cover.
Note: If the CD-3315’s sound weakens or distorts, replace the batteries.
6
14-539.fm Page 7 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 1:50 PM
USING THE AC POWER CORD
Powering the CD-3315 In Your
Home
Plug the supplied AC power cord into
AC IN on the back of the CD-3315.
Then plug the other end into a standard AC outlet.
Powering the CD-3315 In Your
Vehicle
Convert your vehicle’s DC power to
120V AC using a DC-to-AC inverter,
such as Radio Shack Cat. No. 22132 (not supplied). Follow the instructions included with the inverter
to connect it to your vehicle’s cigarette-lighter socket. Then plug the
supplied AC power cord into AC IN
on the back of the CD-3315 and plug
the other end into the AC outlet on
the inverter.
Caution: To avoid exposure to hazardous voltage, always plug the AC
power cord into the CD-3315 before
you plug it into the standard AC outlet. Always unplug the AC power cord
from the standard AC outlet before
you unplug it from the CD-3315.
Caution: To avoid exposure to hazardous voltage, always plug the AC
power cord into the CD-3315 before
you plug the power cord into the inverter. Always unplug the AC power
cord from the inverter before you unplug the power cord from the CD3315.
Note: The CD-3315 automatically
disconnects internal batteries when
you connect the AC power cord.
If the CD-3315 hums when you turn it
off, just unplug the inverter from your
vehicle’s cigarette-lighter socket.

14-539.fm Page 8 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 1:50 PM
USING HEADPHONES
For private listening, you can insert a
pair of stereo headphones (not sup1
plied) with a /8-inch plug into the
PHONES jack.
LISTENING SAFELY
To protect your hearing, follow these
guidelines when you use headphones.
• Set the volume to the lowest setting before you begin listening.
After you begin listening, adjust
the volume to a comfortable
level.
Notes:
• Your local Radio Shack store
carries a wide selection of stereo headphones.
• Connecting headphones automatically disconnects the built-in
speaker.
• Do not listen at extremely high
volume levels. Extended highvolume listening can lead to permanent hearing loss.
• Once you set the volume, do not
increase it. Over time, your ears
adapt to the volume level, so a
volume level that does not
cause discomfort might still
damage your hearing.
TRAFFIC SAFETY
Do not wear headphones while operating a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can create a traffic hazard
and is illegal in some areas.
Even though some headphones are
designed to let you hear some outside sounds when listening at normal
volume levels, they still present a
traffic hazard.

Notes:
• Most material on compact discs
and prerecorded tapes is copyrighted. Unauthorized duplication of copyrighted material is a
violation of the copyright laws of
most countries and such duplication may result in fines and/or
imprisonment. Note, however,
that in the United States, it is not
a violation of U.S. copyright laws
for a consumer to use an audio
recording device to duplicate
musical recordings for noncommercial (personal) use.
• Tape quality greatly affects the
quality of the recording. For lownoise, wide range recordings,
use normal-bias tape.
• We recommend regular length
(60- or 90-minute) cassette
tapes. We do not recommend
long-play cassette tapes, such
as C-120s, because they are
thin and easily tangle.
• The system’s Automatic Level
Control (ALC) automatically
adjusts the recording level. VOLUME and E-BASS have no
effect on recording.
• You can record only specific
tracks from a CD by first programming a sequence. See
“Programmed Play.”

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your Radio Shack CD-3315 Portable
AM/FM Stereo Single Cassette Recorder with CD Player is an example
of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will
help you care for the system so you
can enjoy it for years.
CLEANER
Keep the CD-3315
dry. If it gets wet, wipe
it dry immediately.
Liquids might contain
minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Use and store the CD3315 only in normal
temperature environments. Temperature
extremes can shorten
the life of electronic
devices, damage batteries, and distort or
melt plastic parts.
Handle the CD-3315
gently and carefully.
Dropping it can damage the circuit boards
and can cause the
system to work improperly.
18
Keep the CD-3315
away from dust and
dirt, which can cause
premature wear of
parts.
Wipe the CD-3315
with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it
looking new. Do not
use harsh chemicals,
cleaning solvents, or
strong detergents to
clean the system.
Modifying or tampering with the CD3315’s internal components can
cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC
authorization to operate it. If the CD3315 is not performing as it should,
take it to your local Radio Shack
store for assistance.
14-539.fm Page 19 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 1:50 PM
CD CARE TIPS
Even though a compact disc is durable, treat the CD surface with care.
• Do not write on either side of the CD, particularly the non-label side (signals
are read from the non-label side).
• Do not store CDs in high temperature, high-humidity locations. They might
warp.
• Keep CDs dry. A water drop can act as a lens and affect the laser beam’s
focus.
• Always handle a CD by the edges to avoid fingerprints and always keep it in
its protective case or sleeve when it is not in use. Fingerprints and
scratches on the CD’s surface can prevent the laser beam from correctly
reading the digital information. If the CD gets scratched, use Scratch ’n Fix
(Radio Shack Cat. No. 42-127) to repair the disc.
TAPE TIPS
Erasing a Cassette Tape
To erase a previously recorded tape, simply record over it. To erase the entire
cassette tape, set FUNCTON/POWER to CD and do not load a CD. Then start
recording and let the tape record to the end.
To quickly erase both sides of a cassette tape, use a bulk tape eraser (such as
Cat. No. 44-232, not supplied).
Preventing Accidental Erasure
Cassette tapes have two erase-protection tabs—one for each side. To protect a
recording from being accidentally recorded over or erased, use a screwdriver to
remove one or both erase-protection tabs.
19
14-539.fm Page 20 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 1:50 PM
To record on a tape side after you remove the erase-protection tab, place a piece
of strong plastic tape over that side’s erase-protection hole. Be sure you cover
only the hole originally covered by the tab.
Note: Removing the erase-protection
tabs does not prevent a bulk eraser
from erasing a cassette tape.

CLEANING THE TAPE-HANDLING
PARTS
RESTORING TAPE TENSION AND
SOUND QUALITY
Dirt, dust, or particles of the tape’s
coating can accumulate on the tape
heads and other parts that the tape
touches. This can greatly reduce the
performance of the cassette player.
Use the following cleaning procedure
after every 20 hours of tape player
operation.
After you play a cassette tape several times, the tape might become
tightly wound on the reels. This can
cause playback sound quality to deteriorate.
1. Disconnect all power sources.
2. Open the cassette compartment
door.
3. Press PLAY to expose the tapehandling parts.
4. Use a cotton swab dipped in
denatured alcohol or tape head
cleaning solution to clean the
record/play head, pinch roller,
capstan, and erase head.
To restore the sound quality, fast-forward the tape from the beginning to
the end of one side, the completely
rewind it. Then loosen the tape reels
by gently tapping each side of the
cassette’s outer shell on a flat surface.
Caution: Be careful not to damage
the cassette when tapping it. Do not
touch the exposed tape or allow any
sharp objects near the cassette.
5. When you finish cleaning, press
STOP/EJECT and close the
cassette compartment door.
Your local Radio Shack store sells a
complete line of cassette cleaning
products.
