Troubleshooting guide
Before requesting service, make the below checks. If you are in doubt about some of the check points, or if the remedies indicated in the chart do not solve
the problem, consult your dealer for instructions.
Reference pages are shown as black circled numbers 6.
Common Problems
No sound.
The cassette deck
Turn the volume up.
Switch off the unit, determine and correct the cause, then switch the unit on. Causes include shorting of the
positive and negative speaker wires, straining of the speakers through excessive volume or power, and using
the unit in a hot environment.
Poor quality sound.
Clean the heads. W
Check the Dolby NR setting. C
Recording is not possible.
If the erasure prevention tabs have been removed, cover the holes with adhesive tape. L
Sounds unfixed, reversed or
come from one speaker only.
Check the speaker connections. 6
“DECK NO TAPE” is displayed
during “One touch editing”.
Load a cassette into deck 2. L
Humming heard during play.
An AC mains lead or fluorescent light is near the cables. Keep other appliances and leads away from this
unit’s cables.
If possible in your area, turn the AC mains lead’s plug or connector over to reverse the lead’s polarity.
“DECK CHANGE TAPE” is
displayed during “One touch
editing”.
“ERROR” is displayed.
Incorrect operation performed. Read the instructions and try again.
“U70” is displayed.
Connect the flat cables firmly. If “U70” remains on the display, contact the dealer.
“F60” is displayed.

Set the time. <
The display starts up even after
the unit is turned off.
The demonstration feature (–DEMO) is on. Turn it off if it is not required. <
If the erasure prevention tabs have been removed, cover the holes with adhesive tape. L
When there is a television set nearby
The picture on the TV
disappears or stripes appear on
the screen.
The location and orientation of the antenna are incorrect. If you are using an indoor antenna, change to an
outdoor antenna.
The TV antenna wire is too close to the unit. Separate the antenna wire of the TV set from the system.
The remote control
The remote control doesn’t
work.
Check the batteries are inserted correctly. ;
Replace the batteries if they are worn.
The CD changer or CD player
All components are required to service the system. If service is ever necessary, bring the entire system.
There is a problem with the CD mechanism. (A power failure may have occurred.)
The tray will open automatically. Remove the CD from the tray, and after ensuring there is no CD in the tray,
close it. The unit will make the disc changing noises for a few moments and then it should operate normally.
