PREPARATION FOR USE
POWER SOURCES
This personal CD player is designed to operate on two alkaline “AA” batteries, or
on an optional AC adapter, not included. Attempting to operate this unit on any
other power source may cause damage to the unit and such damage is not covered
by your warranty.
INSTALLING THE BATTERIES
The battery compartment is located inside the CD player.
1.) Open the CD door locking hinge as shown and then open the CD door.
Remove the “dummy CD” transit protection card from the CD spindle and
discard it.
2.) Press the battery cover locking tab
in the direction of the arrow and
open the battery cover as shown.
Note: To prevent loss the battery cover cannot be completely removed
from the player.

3.) Insert two fresh “AA” alkaline batteries in the battery compartment. Be sure to
follow the polarity makings in the battery compartment. If the batteries are
inserted incorrectly the unit will not work.
4.) Close the battery compartment cover and make sure that it is locked in place
so that it does not come in contact with a CD.
WHEN TO CHANGE THE BATTERIES
When the Battery Indicator
flashes in the display the batteries are getting
weak and should be changed as soon as possible. Do not leave weak or exhausted
batteries in the player as they will eventually leak and cause corrosion inside the
battery compartment.
USING AN OPTIONAL AC/DC ADAPTER
If you decide to purchase an optional AC adapter the specification should be as
follows:
Input Voltage: 120V/60Hz AC.
Output Voltage: 4.5V DC 500mA.
Plug Type: Center-pin 1.3mm Female Plug with Positive (+) Center
Negative (–)
Positive (+)

You may also purchase a “Universal” type AC adapter that allows you to select the
desired output voltage, and normally includes several of the most popular plug
sizes. Make sure that the adapter you purchase is “UL Listed”. Look for the “UL”
mark on the packaging and on the adapter itself.
Connect the adapter housing directly to a 120V AC outlet. Connect the appropriate
adapter plug to the “DC Input 4.5V” jack on the side of the CD player. Remove the
rubber cap from the Input jack before connecting the adapter plug. Replace the
rubber cap when the adapter plug is removed from the player.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
This personal CD player is designed to be "water-resistant". Jogging
with this product in the rain will not cause any problems. However
this product is not "water-proof" and should never be immersed in
water. Extra care should taken to prevent water from getting inside
the cabinet while loading or unloading CD's, or while changing the
batteries. In addition, the rubber plugs which cover the headphone
jack and the DC Input jack should remain sealed when those jacks
are not in use. After jogging with this model in the rain please wipe
excess moisture off the cabinet with a soft, dry towel before putting
the model away for storage.
SPORTS STYLE LIGHTWEIGHT STEREO HEADPHONES

designed to fit directly into your ear. Be sure to observe the “L” (Left) and “R”
(Right) markings on the ear-pieces to make sure that you put the headphones on
correctly. Always set the VOLUME control to a low level before putting on the
earphones, and then gradually increase the volume to a comfortable listening level.

PLAYING COMPACT DISCS
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.
NORMAL PLAYBACK
1.) Open the CD door locking hinge, and open the CD door.
2.) Place your CD, CD-R, or CD-RW disc on the center spindle with the printed
label side facing up. Gently press down on the disc near the center hole to
make sure that the disc is properly ‘seated’on the spindle.

Anti-Skip Protection (ASP)
This player includes a 45 second Anti Skip Protection circuit that prevents the CD
from skipping during most active uses. ASP is activated automatically when
playback begins. The Anti Skip indicator appears in the display and begins to fill
with a series of ‘bars’
.
When the Anti Skip indicator contains 5 bars
this indicates that the electronic
memory contains 45 seconds of music. If the player is bumped or shaken the
music will not skip, but one or more of the bars may disappear
, indicating that
the memory is being depleted. If all 5 bars disappear
the Anti Skip memory is
empty. If the player is continuously bumped or shaken while the Anti Skip memory
is empty the music may skip or the CD may stop completely.
Note: The Anti Skip memory circuit consumes additional battery power. So if
you are using the player in a stable location where it will not be subject to
bumps and shock, press the ASP button to shut the anti-skip memory ‘Off’.
The ASP indicator disappears from the display.

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.
