Precaution
English
Warning
DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER
Attempts to disassemble or alter may
lead to an accident, fire and/or electric
shock.
KEEP SMALL ARTICLES OUT OF THE
REACH OF CHILDREN
Store small articles (batteries, screws,
etc.) in places not accessible to
children. If swallowed, consult a
physician immediately.
USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING
WHEN REPLACING FUSES
Replace fuses only with fuses of the
same ampere rating. Failure to do so
may result in a fire and/or damage to
the vehicle.
HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS
When problems appear, stop using
the system immediately and contact
the dealer from whom you purchased
the equipment. Some problems which
may warrant immediate attention
include a lack of sound, noxious odors
or smoke being emitted from the unit,
or foreign objects dropped inside the
unit.
DO NOT OPERATE THE REMOTE
CONTROL WHILE DRIVING
Do not change settings while driving.
If operation requiring a prolonged
view of the display is required, stop
the vehicle in a safe location before
attempting operation.

Precaution
English
Caution
DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS
Do not block air vents or heat discharge plates. Blocking them will
cause heat to build up inside and may
result in fire.
DO NOT RAISE THE VOLUME EXCESSIVELY
Keep the volume at a level where you
can still hear outside noises while
driving. Driving while unable to hear
outside sounds could cause an accident.
DO NOT USE THIS EQUIPMENT
OUTSIDE THE VEHICLE
Do not use this equipment for purposes other than those listed for a
vehicle. Failure to do so may result in
an electric shock or an injury.
KEEP FOREIGN OBJECTS OUT OF THE
CASSETTE COMPARTMENT SLOT
Keep any foreign objects, including
fingers, out of the cassette compartment slot.
STOP THE VEHICLE BEFORE CARRYING OUT ANY OPERATION THAT
COULD INTERFERE WITH YOUR
DRIVING
If loading or unloading a cassette
interferes with your driving, stop the
vehicle in a safe location before
attempting operation.
DO NOT REPLACE THE BATTERY WITH
ONE NOT SPECIFIED. INSERT WITH
THE CORRECT BATTERY POLARITY
Do not replace with other than specified battery. When inserting the
battery, be sure to observe proper
polarity (+ and –) as instructed.
Battery rupture or chemical leakage
can cause an injury or equipment
malfunction.

Be sure the temperature inside the vehicle is
between +60°C (+140°F) and –10°C (+14°F)
before turing your unit on.
Tape Slack
Check and make sure any slack in the tape is
taken up before inserting the tape into the unit.
A loose tape can get caught in the mechanism
and cause damage to the unit and the tape
itself. Tighten the tape by inserting a pencil or a
similar instrument into the spindle hole and turn
until all the slack has been taken up.
Excessively Thin Tape
C-120 type cassette tapes are not recommended for use in automobile tape players.
Precision Tape Mechanism
Prevent any foreign objects from entering the
cassette opening as the precision mechanism
and tape head may be damaged.
Never play dirty or dusty tapes – they can
damage the tape head.
Tape Head Cleaning
Periodic cleaning (approximately every 20
hours of use) of the tape head with a wet type
head-cleaning cassette tape (available at audio
stores) is necessary for best performance.
Fuse Replacement
When replacing the fuse(s), the replacement
must be of the same amperage as shown on
the fuse holder. If the fuse blows more than
once, carefully check all electrical connections
for shorted circuitry. Also have your vehicle's
voltage regulator checked
Maintenance
6
If you have problems, do not attempt to repair
the unit yourself. Return it to your Alpine dealer
or the nearest Alpine Service Station for
servicing.
