POWER SOURCE
This product is designed to operate on normal 120V 60Hz AC 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.
NOTE: 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
AC Outlet
outlet, you probably have an outdated non-polarized AC outlet. You
AC Plug
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.
IMPORTANT: Raising And Lowering The Lid
To open the lid, raise it as far as it will go until the lid support bracket ‘locks’in the
open position.
To close the lid, lift it upward slightly until the lid support bracket ‘unlocks’, and then
gently lower the lid.
TO AVOID DAMAGING THE CABINET OR THE LID, NEVER FORCE THE LID
CLOSED. ALWAYS RAISE THE LID TO RELEASE THE LID SUPPORT BRACKET.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
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).
• 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.

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
You should care for the cabinet as you would care for any piece of fine furniture.
When the cabinet becomes dusty wipe it with a soft, non-abrasive dust cloth. If the
cabinet becomes smudged with fingerprints you may use any good quality
commercial dusting and polishing spray cleaner, however avoid spraying the plastic
or metal parts of this system. We recommend that you spray the cleaner on your
dust cloth, not directly on the cabinet, to avoid getting any of the spray on the
plastic or metal parts.
