Additional Information
Precautions
Cleaning the cabinet
Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with mild
detergent solution.
To save a tape permanently
On operating voltage
Before operating the system, check that the
operating voltage of your system is identical with
the voltage of your local power supply.
To prevent a tape from being accidentally recorded
over, break off the cassette tab from side A or B as
illustrated. If you later want to reuse the tape for
recording, cover the broken tab with adhesive tape.
On safety
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the
wall outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned
off.
• Unplug the system from the wall outlet (mains) if
it is not to be used for an extended period of time.
To disconnect the cord (mains lead), pull it out by
the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
component, unplug the stereo system and have
the component checked by qualified personnel
before operating it any further.
• The AC power cord must be changed only at the
qualified service shop.
On placement
• Place the stereo system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the stereo
system.
• Do not place the unit in an inclined position.
• Do not place the unit in locations where it is;
— Extremely hot or cold
— Dusty or dirty
— Very humid
— Vibrating
— Subject to direct sunlight
On operation
• If the stereo system is brought directly from a cold
to a warm location, or is placed in a very damp
room, moisture may condense on the lens inside
the CD player. Should this occur, the system will
not operate properly. Remove the CD and leave
the system turned on for about an hour until the
moisture evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any discs.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your stereo system, please consult your nearest
Sony dealer.
Notes on CDs
40
• Before playing, clean the CD with a cleaning cloth.
Wipe the CD from the center out.
• Do not use solvents such as benzene, thinner,
commercially available cleaners or anti-static
spray intended for vinyl LPs.
• Do not expose the CD to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car
parked in direct sunlight.
When you are using a TYPE II (CrO2) or TYPE IV
(metal) cassette, be careful not to cover the detector
slots which allow the tape player to automatically
detect the type of tape.
Detector slots
Before placing a cassette in the
tape deck
Take up any slack in the tape. Otherwise the tape
may get entangled in the parts of the tape deck and
become damaged.
When using a tape longer than 90
minutes
The tape is very elastic. Do not change the tape
operations such as play, stop, and fast-winding etc.
frequently. The tape may get entangled in the tape
deck.
Cleaning the tape heads
Clean the tape heads after every 10 hours of use.
When the tape heads become dirty
— the sound is distorted
— there is a decrease in sound level
— the sound drops out
— the tape does not erase completely
— the tape does not record
Make sure to clean the tape heads before you start
an important recording or after playing an old tape.
Use separately sold dry-type or wet-type cleaning
cassette. For details, refer to the instructions of the
cleaning cassette.
Demagnetizing the tape heads
Demagnetize the tape heads and the metal parts that
have contact with the tape every 20 to 30 hours of
use with a separately sold demagnetizing cassette.
For details, refer to the instructions of the
demagnetizing cassette.
Troubleshooting
If you run into any problem using this stereo
system, use the following checklist.
First, check that the power cord is connected
firmly and the speakers are connected
correctly and firmly.
Should any problem persist, consult your
nearest Sony dealer.
General
The display starts flashing as soon as you
plug in the power cord even though you
haven’t turned on the system
(demonstration mode).
• Press DISPLAY/DEMO while the system
is off.
The demonstration appears automatically
the first time you plug in the power cord,
or if there is a power outage lasting
longer than half a day.
In this case, reset the following:
— Clock setting (see “Step 2: Setting the
time”)
— Press DISPLAY/DEMO while the
system is off.
There is no sound.
• Turn VOLUME clockwise.
• The headphones are connected.
• Insert only the stripped portion of the
speaker cord into the SPEAKER jack.
Inserting the vinyl portion of the speaker
cord will interfere with the speaker
connection.
There is no microphone sound.
•Turn VOLUME or MIC LEVEL to adjust
the microphone volume.
• Make sure the microphone is connected
to the MIC jack correctly.
There is severe hum or noise.
• A TV or VCR is placed too close to the
stereo system. Move the stereo system
away from the TV or VCR.
The timer does not function.
•Set the clock correctly.
DAILY 1, DAILY 2, and REC do not appear
when you press t/CLOCK SET.
•Set the timer correctly.
•Set the clock.
The remote does not function.
•There is an obstacle between the remote
and the unit.
•The remote is not pointing in the
direction of the system’s sensor.
•The batteries have run down. Replace the
batteries.
There is acoustic feedback.
•Decrease the volume level.
•Move the microphone away form the
speakers or change the direction of the
microphone.
The color irregularity on a TV screen
persists.
•Turn off the TV set once, then turn it on
after 15 to 30 minutes. If the color
irregularity still persists, place the
speakers farther away from the TV set.
The sound from the connected source is
distorted.
•If “VIDEO” appears in the display when
you press FUNCTION, switch the display
to “MD” (see the note in the “Connecting
an MD deck for analog recording” section
on page 9).
Speakers
Sound comes from only one channel or the
left and right volumes are unbalanced.
•Check the speaker connections and
placement.
There is no sound from the surround
speakers (LBT-D790/XB33/XB33K/XB50/
XB60 only).
•Press SURROUND to turn on the
surround effect.
“0:00” (for European and Brazilian models)
