PREPARATION
INSTALLING BATTERIES
You need two AA batteries (not supplied) to power
your SCP-91. For the best performance and longest
life, we recommend alkaline batteries, such as RadioShack Cat. No. 23-557. Follow these steps to install batteries.
1. Press down on the battery compartment cover
and slide it off in the direction of the arrow
marked on the cover.
2. Install the batteries as indicated by the polarity
symbols (+ and –) marked inside the compartment, with both batteries over the ribbon.
4
14-1234.fm Page 5 Friday, July 2, 1999 11:01 AM
Caution: Use only fresh batteries of the required
size and type. Do not mix old and new batteries,
different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or
rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.
3. Replace the cover.
If the sound gets distorted or weak, replace the batteries.
Cautions:
• Always dispose of old batteries promptly and
properly.
• If you do not plan to use the SCP-91 for a week
or more. remove the batteries. Batteries can leak
chemicals that corrode or damage electronic circuits.

CONNECTING HEADPHONES/
SPEAKERS
You must connect the supplied stereo headphones,
or amplified speakers with a 1/8-inch stereo plug, to
listen to the SCP-91. Your local RadioShack store
sells a wide variety of headphones and amplified
speakers.
Connect the headphones or amplified speakers to
the
jack.

Listening Safely
To protect your hearing, follow these guidelines when
you use headphones.
• Set the volume to the lowest setting before you
begin listening. After you begin listening, adjust
the volume to a comfortable level.
• Do not listen at extremely high volume levels.
Extended high-volume listening can lead to permanent hearing loss.
• Once you set the volume, do not increase it.
Over time, your ears adapt to the volume level,
so a volume level that does not cause discomfort
might still damage your hearing.
Traffic Safety
Do not wear headphones while operating a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This can create a traffic hazard and is illegal in some areas.
7
14-1234.fm Page 8 Friday, July 2, 1999 11:01 AM
Even though some headphones are designed to let
you hear some outside sounds when listening at normal volume levels, they still present a traffic hazard.
USING THE BELT CLIP
The belt clip lets you keep your hands free while you
listen to the SCP-91. To remove the belt clip, push
down on the tab and slide it off in the direction of the
arrow.
To reattach the belt clip, slide it into the slots on the
back of the SCP-91 and push up until it latches in
place.

TAPE TIPS
TAPE QUALITY
For the best performance, use only regular length
(60- or 90-minute) cassette tapes. We do not recommend long-playing cassette tapes, such as C-120s,
because they are extremely thin and can easily tangle in the playback mechanism.
RESTORING TAPE TENSION AND
SOUND QUALITY
After you play a cassette tape several times, the tape
might become tightly wound on the reels. This can
cause playback sound quality to deteriorate.
To restore the sound quality, fast-forward the tape
from the beginning to the end of one side, then turn it
over and fast-forward it to the end of the other side.
Then loosen the tape reels by gently tapping each
side of the cassette’s outer shell on a flat surface.
15
14-1234.fm Page 16 Friday, July 2, 1999 11:01 AM
Caution: Be careful not to damage the cassette
when tapping it. Do not touch the exposed tape or allow any sharp objects near the cassette.
CLEANING THE TAPE-HANDLING
PARTS
Dirt, dust, or particles of the tape’s coating can accumulate on the tape head and other parts that the tape
touches. This can reduce the SCP-91’s performance.
Follow these steps to clean the tape-handling parts
after about every 20 hours of tape player operation.
1. Remove the batteries.
2. Open the cassette compartment door.
3. Press PLAY to expose the tape-handling parts.
16
14-1234.fm Page 17 Friday, July 2, 1999 11:01 AM
4. Use a cotton swab dipped in denatured alcohol
or tape head cleaning solution to clean the playback head, pinch rollers, capstans and tape
guides.
5. When you finish cleaning, press STOP and close
the compartment, then reinstall the batteries.
Note: Your local RadioShack store has a complete
line of cassette player cleaning supplies.
