Explanation of Graphical Symbols:
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within
an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the
user to the presence of uninsulated “dangerous
voltage” within the product’s enclosure that may
be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of
electric shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral
triangle is intended to alert the user to the
presence of important operating and
maintenance (servicing) instructions in the
literature accompanying the appliance.
PRECAUTIONS
Read the Operating Instructions carefully and completely before
operating the unit. Be sure to keep the Operating Instructions for
future reference. All warnings and cautions in the Operating Instructions and on the unit should be strictly followed, as well as
the safety suggestions below.
7 Condensation — Moisture may form on the CD pickup lens
when:
- The unit is moved from a cold spot to a warm spot
- The heating system has just been turned on
- The unit is used in a very humid room
- The unit is cooled by an air conditioner
When this unit has condensation inside, it may not function
normally. Should this occur, leave the unit for a few hours, then
try to operate again.
8 Wall or ceiling mounting — The unit should not be mounted
on a wall or ceiling, unless specified in the Operating Instructions.
Electric Power
1 Power sources — Connect this unit only to power sources
specified in the Operating Instructions, and as marked on the
unit.
2 Polarization — As a safety feature, some units are equipped
with polarized AC power plugs which can only be inserted
one way into a power outlet. If it is difficult or impossible to
insert the AC power plug into an outlet, turn the plug over and
try again. If it still does not easily insert into the outlet, please
call a qualified service technician to service or replace the
outlet. To avoid defeating the safety feature of the polarized
plug, do not force it into a power outlet.
3 AC power cord
- When disconnecting the AC power cord, pull out by the AC
power plug. Do not pull the cord itself.
- Never handle the AC power plug with wet hands, as this
could result in fire or shock.
- Power cord should be routed to avoid being severely bent,
pinched, or walked upon. Pay particular attention to the cord
from the unit to the power socket.
- Avoid overloading AC power plugs and extension cords
beyond their capacity, as this could result in fire or shock.
4 Extension cord — To help prevent electric shock, do not use a
polarized AC power plug with an extension cord, receptacle, or
other outlet unless the polarized plug can be completely inserted
to prevent exposure of the blades of the plug.
5 When not in use — Unplug the AC power plug from the power
socket if the unit will not be used for several months or more.
When the cord is plugged in, a small amount of current continues
to flow to the unit, even when the power is turned off.
Outdoor Antenna
Installation
1 Water and moisture — Do not use this unit near water, such
as near a bathtub, washbowl, swimming pool, or the like.
2 Heat — Do not use this unit near sources of heat, including
heating vents, stoves, or other appliances that generate heat.
It also should not be placed in temperatures less than 5°C
(41°F) or greater than 35°C (95°F).
3 Mounting surface — Place the unit on a flat, even surface.
4 Ventilation — The unit should be situated with adequate
space around it so that proper heat ventilation is assured.
Allow 10 cm (4 in.) clearance from the rear and the top of the
unit, and 5 cm (2 in.) from the each side.
- Do not place the unit on a bed, rug, or similar surface that
may block the ventilation openings.
- Do not install the unit in a bookcase, cabinet, or airtight
rack where ventilation may be impeded.
5 Objects and liquid entry — Take care that objects or liquids
do not get inside the unit through the ventilation openings.
6 Carts and stands — When
placed or mounted on a stand or
cart, the unit should be moved
with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and
uneven surfaces may cause the
unit or cart to overturn or fall.
1 Power lines — When connecting an outdoor antenna, make
sure it is located away from power lines.
2 Outdoor antenna grounding — Be sure the antenna system
is properly grounded to provide protection against unexpected
voltage surges or static electricity build-up. Article 810 of the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information
on proper grounding of the mast, supporting structure, and
the lead-in wire to the antenna discharge unit, as well as the
size of the grounding unit, connection to grounding terminals,
and requirements for grounding terminals.

GENERAL
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Occasional care and maintenance of the unit and the software
are needed to optimize the performance of your unit.
If the unit fails to perform as described in these Operating
Instructions, check the following guide.
To clean the cabinet
GENERAL
There is no sound.
Use a soft and dry cloth.
If the surfaces are extremely dirty, use a soft cloth lightly
moistened with mild detergent solution. Do not use strong
solvents, such as alcohol, benzine or thinner as these could
damage the finish of the unit.
To clean the tape heads
When the tape heads are dirty;
- high frequency sound is not emitted
- the sound is not adequately high
- the sound is off-balance
- the tape cannot be erased
- the tape cannot be recorded on
After every 10 hours of use, clean the tape heads with a head
cleaning cassette.
Refer to the instructions of the cleaning cassette for details.
To demagnetize the tape heads
The tape heads may become magnetized after long-term use.
This may narrow the output range of recorded tapes and increase
noise.
After every 20 to 30 hours of use, demagnetize the tape heads
with a separately sold demagnetizing cassette.
Refer to the instructions of the demagnetizing cassette for details.
Care of discs
• When a disc becomes dirty, wipe the disc from the center out
with a cleaning cloth.
• Is the AC cord connected properly?
• Is there a bad connection? (➞ page 3)
• There may be a short circuit in the speaker terminals.
➞ Disconnect the AC cord, then correct the speaker
connections.
• Was an incorrect function button pressed?
Sound is emitted from one speaker only.
• Is the other speaker disconnected?
An erroneous display or a malfunction occurs.
➞ Reset the unit as stated below.
The unit blacks out when the power is off.
• Is the unit set to power economizing mode? (➞ page 5)
The power is not turned on.
• Disconnect the AC cord, and connect it again in a few seconds.
TUNER SECTION
There is constant, wave-like static.
• Is the antenna connected properly? (➞ page 3)
• Is the signal weak?
➞ Connect an outdoor antenna.
The reception contains noise interferences or the sound
is distorted.
• Is the system picking up external noise or multipath distortion?
➞ Change the orientation of the antenna.
➞ Move the unit away from other electrical appliances.
CASSETTE DECK SECTION
The tape does not run.
• Is deck in pause mode? (➞ page 10)

disc in places that are hot or humid.
Erasure is not possible.
• Is the erasure head dirty? (➞ page 17)
• Is a metal tape being used?
Care of tapes
High frequency sound is not emitted.
• Store tapes in their cases after use.
• Do not leave tapes near magnets, motors, television sets, or
any source of magnetism. This will downgrade the sound quality
and cause noise.
• Do not expose tapes to direct sunlight, or leave them in a car
parked in direct sunlight.
CD PLAYER SECTION
The CD player does not play.
• Is the recording/playback head dirty? (➞ page 17)
• Is the disc correctly placed? (➞ page 8)
