CONNECTING THE AC POWER CORD
After connecting the speakers unwind the AC power cord fully and connect it to any
convenient household AC outlet.
NOTE: This product is designed to operate on normal 120V 60Hz AC only.
Connecting this system to any other power supply could result in damage to the
unit which is not covered by your warranty.
You will note that this system is equipped with a polarized AC power plug having
one blade wider than the other. This is a safety feature. If this plug does not fit into
your existing AC outlet, do not try to defeat this safety feature by filing the wide
blade to make it fit into your outlet. If this plug will not fit into your outlet, you
probably have an out-dated non-polarized AC outlet. You should have your outlet
changed by a qualified licensed electrician.

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.

CASSETTE OPERATION
This Emerson Audio System features a dual cassette mechanism which
allows you to play pre-recorded cassette tapes in either DECK A or DECK
B. You may also load tapes in both decks for continuous automatic playback
of two cassettes.
You may make tape recordings directly from the stereo receiver, the CD
changer, the Turntable, or external source connected to the AUX INPUT
jacks, or even from Tape to Tape (Dubbing) at either normal or high speed.
The built in ALC (Automatic Level Control) system adjusts the volume for
distortion-free recordings. You can change the playback volume control
settings during recordings without effecting the volume of the final recording.
For best results always use good quality blank tapes for recording. Although
blank tapes are available with various recording times we recommend that
you do not use tapes longer than C-90 which contain 90 minutes of recording
time (45 minutes per side). Longer tapes such as C-120’s (60 minutes per
side) use thinner material which may eventually stretch and can become
tangled in the mechanism.
Keep the critical parts of the tape mechanisms clean to insure trouble free
operation.
Refer to the cleaning instructions in the CARE AND MAINTENANCE section
of this manual.

Tape To Tape Recording (Dubbing)
To copy a previously recorded tape:
1.) Press POWER button to turn system ‘On’.
2.) Press TAPE button. The TAPE Indicator appears in the display.

Recording Hint: Try to use a blank tape that is the same length or just slightly
longer than your pre-recorded tape. This will enable you to fit all the material
on the copy without excessive ‘blank space’.
High Speed Dubbing
When copying from tape to tape, you can reduce the recording time by pressing
the HI-SPEED DUBBING button to the ‘
On’position. Both tapes will move at
approximately 2 times the normal speed to cut the recording time in half.

RESET Button
If the unit does not respond to commands from the remote control or from the front
panel controls, the internal processor may be “locked” and must be reset. Use a
paper clip or similar object to press the RESET button which is located inside a
pin-hole behind the back panel.
RESET Pin Hole
Depress the RESET button for a few seconds to clear the memory and restore
normal operation.

the Tuner Preset Memories.
PHONES
Jack
The Stereo Headphone Jack is located on the left front panel. Connect a set of
stereo headphones (not included) to this jack for private listening without disturbing
others. The speakers are automatically disconnected when headphones are
connected to the headphone jack.
IMPORTANT: When using headphones always set the volume control to a low
level before you put the headphones on. Then put the headphones on and
gradually increase the volume to a comfortable listening level.

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.

TAB FOR SIDE A.
BREAK OFF 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 the mechanism.
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).
31
MS9933TT_043004.p65
31
30/4/2004, 11:49
• 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.
Fig. 2
• 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. Switch off the power, press the STOP/EJECT key
to open the cassette door, and press the PLAY key. Clean the tape heads, pinch
roller and capstan with a soft cloth or cotton pad dampened in isopropyl alcohol or
special tape head cleaner.

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 CABINETS
• If the cabinets become dusty wipe them with a soft dry dust cloth. Do not use
any wax or polish sprays on the cabinets.
• If the front panel becomes dirty or smudged with fingerprints it may be cleaned
with a soft cloth slightly dampened with a mild soap and water solution. Never
use abrasive cloths or polishes as these will mar the finish of your unit.
Caution: Never allow any water or other liquids to get inside the unit while
cleaning.
