For Your Safety

The AC power plug is polarized (one blade is wider than the other) and only fits into AC power outlets one way. If the plug won’t go into the outlet completely, turn the plug over and try to insert it the other way. If it still won’t fit, contact a qualified electrician to change the outlet, or use a different one.

Do not attempt to bypass this safety feature.

CAUTION: TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK, MATCH WIDE

BLADE OF PLUG TO WIDE SLOT, FULLY INSERT.

Before you begin

AC Power

Plug the power supply cord into the AC power jack on the back of the unit, and into an AC power supply outlet that accepts the plug supplied with your unit.

Note: Look in the battery compartment to find the AC power cord.

Battery Power

You can insert 6 D-sized alkaline batteries (not supplied) and you can take your stereo just about anywhere. 3

“AA” batteries (not supplied) are needed to keep radio station memory. Open the battery compartment door on the back of the unit by pressing down on the arrow and pulling out the cover. Insert batteries in the battery compartment.(See diagram)

Note that the AC line cord must be unplugged from the jack on the back of the unit to operate on batteries.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to remove batteries when storing the set for more than 30 days. Leaky batteries can badly damage the system. Always return tape operation buttons to their off position before storing. This will relieve pressure on certain parts in the tape recorder that might deform after long periods of time. Be sure to dispose of leaky, weak or dead batteries properly according to federal, state, and local regulations. To prevent injury or damage, do not reverse batteries and do not mix battery type.

Maintenance

Cleaning the exterior

• Disconnect the system from AC power before cleaning the exterior of the unit with a soft dust cloth

• Clean the exterior with a soft clean cloth or slightly moistened chamois leather. DO NOT use solvents as it may cause damage to the unit.

Handling CDs

• Do not touch the signal surfaces. Hold CDs by the edges, or by one edge and the hole.

• Do not affix labels or adhesive tapes to the label surfaces. Do not scratch or damage the label.

• CDs rotate at high speeds inside the player.

Do not use damaged (cracked or warped) CDs

• Make sure CDs are stored in their original case after use. Keep them away from damp, humid or abnormally heated places.

Cleaning CDs

• Dirty CDs can cause poor sound quality.

Always keep CDs clean by wiping them gently with a soft cloth from the inner edge toward the outer perimeter.

• If a CD becomes dirty, wet a soft cloth in water, wring it out well, wipe the dirt away gently, and then remove any water drops with a dry cloth.

• Do not use record cleaning sprays or antistatic agents on CDs. Also, never clean CDs with benzene, thinner, or other volatile solvents which may cause damage to disc surface.

CD Lens Care

• When your CD lens gets dirty it can also cause the system to output poor sound quality. To clean the lens you will need to purchase a CD lens cleaner which can maintain the output sound quality of your system. For instructions on cleaning the CD lens, refer to the ones accompanying the lens cleaner.

Cassettes

• To protect your recordings from accidental erasure on one or both sides of your cassette, snap out the tab at the top of the cassette. If you decide later to record on the tape, seal the

60 hole with a piece of adhesive tape. (Refer to diagram on the right)

A

• Quit Slacking - A little bit of slack in your tapes can cause scratches on the tape, or worse yet, the tape could break. If you notice some slack in the tape, use a pencil to tighten it up before you insert it.

More Information

Safety Precaution

• Never open the cabinet under any circumstances. Any repairs or internal adjustments should be made only by a trained technician.

• Never operate this product with the cabinet removed.

•Do not use your System immediately after transporting it from a cold place to a warm place, as condensation may cause the system to malfunction.

• Keep your unit away from humid areas and abnormally hot places.

• Do not touch the player with wet hands. If any liquid enters the player cabinet, take the player to a trained technician for inspection.

• This compact disc player uses a laser to read the music on the disc. The laser mechanism corresponds to the cartridge and stylus of a record player. Although this product incorporates a laser pick-up lens, it is completely safe when operated according to directions.

• Discs rotate at high speed inside the player.

Do not use damaged, warped, or cracked discs.

• Do not touch the pick-up lens which is located inside the disc compartment. To keep dust from collecting on the pick-up lens, do not leave the compartment door open for an extended period of time. If the lens becomes dirty, clean it with a soft brush, or use an air blower brush designed for camera lenses.

• The apparatus shall not be exposed to dripping and splashing.

Headset Safety

• Do not play your headset at high volume.

Hearing experts warn against extended highvolume play.

• If you experience ringing in your ears, reduce volume or discontinue use.

• You should use with extreme caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.

Important Battery Information

• Discard leaky batteries immediately as leaking batteries may cause skin burns or other personal injuries. Dispose of batteries in the proper manner, according to provincial and local regulations.

• Any battery may leak electrolyte under the following circumstances:

- if mixed with a different battery type,

- if inserted incorrectly,

- if all batteries are not replaced at the same time,

- if disposed of in fire, or

- if an attempt is made to charge a battery not intended to be recharged.

Notes on CD-R/RW

This unit is compatible with CD-RW/ CD-R discs for playback.

• Do not affix any type of labels to either side

(recordable or labeled side) of a CD-R/RW disc as this may result in the unit malfunctioning.

• To avoid damages to the CD-R/RW disc, do not open the disc compartment door while the disc is being read.

• Do not load an unrecorded CD-R/RW disc into the unit. This may take a longer time to read the disc.

• Playback capability for CD-RW discs may vary due to variations in the quality of the CD-RW disc and the recorder used to create the disc.
