POWER SOURCE
This system is designed to operate on normal 120V 60 Hz AC house current only.
Attempting to operate this system from any other power source may cause damage
to the system, and such damage is not covered by your warranty.
Plug the small end to AC socket on back panel, and Conect the AC plug to your AC
outlet. See illustration below.
NOTE: This unit has a polarized AC plug with one wide blade and one narrow
blade. This plug will only fit into a matching polarized AC outlet. This is a safety
feature to reduce the possibility of electric shock. If this plug will not fit in your AC
outlet, you probably have an outdated nonpolarized outlet. You should have your
outdated outlet changed by a qualified,
AC Outlet
licensed electrician. Do not file the wide
blade on the plug, or use an adapter to
make the plug fit into your outlet. This
AC Plug
defeats the safety feature and could
expose you to electric shock.

PROTECT YOUR FURNITURE
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber 'feet' to prevent the product from
moving when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made from non-migrating
rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your
furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives,
or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a
rubber residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly
recommend that you purchase small self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware
stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the
bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
ABOUT CASSETTE TAPES
Whenever you record on a cassette any previously recorded material is erased as
the new material is recorded. To prevent you from accidentally erasing material
which you wish to save, blank cassettes are equipped with erase prevention tabs
for each side of the tape. If the erase prevention tab for side A is removed, you
cannot accidentally record on side A. The record key cannot be depressed if the
erase prevention tab on the cassette has been removed.
To prevent accidental erasing on side A of a cassette use a small screw driver or
similar tool to break off the erase prevention tab for side A. This prevents the
record key from locking.
A
TAB FOR SIDE A
BREAK OUT TO PREVENT RECORDING
If later you do wish to record on side A of the cassette, cover the tab opening with
a piece of cellophane tape. This will allow the record key to function again.

CASSETTE CARE
Two common causes of trouble experienced when using cassettes are:
1.) Tape jamming — Leading to uneven speed in playback, and
2.) Tape tangling — Where the tape wraps itself around vital parts of themechanism.
To reduce the likelihood of these problems occurring, the following precautions
should be observed:
• Check that there are no loose layers of tape visible through the cassette center
window (see Fig. 1). Take up any loose layers, using a pencil or hexagonal
barrelled ballpoint pen, before inserting the cassette into the machine (see Fig. 2).
Fig. 2
Fig. 1
• If the cassette feels “tight”while performing operation shown (see Fig. 2), the tape
may be jamming due to “ridges” formed in the winding of the tape (visible through
the center window). These may be removed, in most cases, by fast winding of the
cassette from one end to the other and back again.
• Use only well-known brands of tape. Avoid use of C-120 cassettes.
Furthermore, do not expose cassettes to direct sunlight, dust or oil, and do not touch
the tape surfaces.

HEAD CLEANING
The tape heads, pinch roller and capstan require periodic cleaning. This removes
particles of the metal oxide coating that wear off the tape and accumulate on these
parts and impair performance. Turn off the power, press the STOP/EJECT
to open the cassette door, and press the PLAY

COMPACT DISC CARE
• To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the center of the case
and lift the disc out, holding it carefully by the edges.
• Fingerprints and dust should be carefully wiped off the disc’s recorded surface
with a soft cloth.Unlike conventional records, compact discs have no grooves
to collect dust and microscopic debris, so gently wiping with a soft cloth should
remove most particles. Wipe in a straight line from the inside to the outside of
the disc. Small dust particles and light stains will have absolutely no effect on
reproduction quality.
• Clean the disc periodically with a soft, lint-free, dry cloth. Never use detergents
or abrasive cleaners to clean the disc. If necessary, use a CD cleaning kit.
• Never write on or affix labels to the surface of compact discs.
CARE OF THE CABINET
If the cabinet becomes dusty wipe it with a soft dry dust cloth. Do not use any wax,
polish sprays, or abrasive cleaners on the cabinet.
CAUTION
