Note: When the Auxiliary Input socket is not in use you must
ensure that nothing is plugged into the socket in order to enable
use of the DAB, FM and Bluetooth operating modes of your radio.
Battery operation
1. Remove the Battery cover on the rear of the unit by pushing the
battery door in and downwards.
2. Insert six LR20 (D size) batteries into the spaces in the compartment.
Take care to ensure all batteries are inserted with the correct polarity
as shown inside the battery compartment. Replace the battery cover.
3. Reduced power, distortion and a 'stuttering' sound are all signs that
the batteries may need replacing.
4. If the radio is not to be used for any extended period of time it is
recommended that the batteries are removed from the radio.
We would recommend for economy that the eco4 Bt is used via the
mains whenever possible with battery operation for occasional use
only.
1
IMPORTANT: The batteries should not be exposed to excessive heat
such as sunshine, fire or the like. After use, disposable batteries should
if possible be taken to a suitable recycling centre. On no account
should batteries be disposed of by incineration.
Mains operation
1. Place your radio on a flat surface.
2. Plug the mains lead into the Mains Input socket located on the rear
of your radio ensuring that the plug is pushed fully into the socket.
3. Plug the other end of the mains lead into the wall socket and switch
on the wall socket. The mains LED will light. Whenever the mains is
used the batteries are automatically disconnected.
IMPORTANT: The mains plug is used as the means of connecting the
radio to the mains supply. The mains socket used for the radio must remain
accessible during normal use. In order to disconnect the radio from the
mains completely, the mains plug should be removed from the mains
socket outlet completely.

3. If this is the first time the radio is used a scan of the Band III DAB
channels will be carried out. This is known as 'Auto tune'. If the radio
has been used before the last used station will be selected.
4. During Auto tune each group of stations will be detected and the station
count will be updated.
5. When the Auto tune is completed the first station (in numeric-alpha
order 0...9...A....Z) will be selected. The first station in the list of stations
found will be played.
6. If no stations are found then 'OFF AIR' will be displayed and it may be
necessary to relocate your radio to a position giving better reception.
You should then carry out an auto tune to find stations as described
on page 9 (see Finding new stations on page 9).

Bluetooth mode
The Bluetooth mode on your radio allows you to play audio, play sound
from video files and stream music from Bluetooth capable devices such as
your mobile phone, computer, tablet etc. through your radio's loudspeaker.
●
When a Bluetooth enabled device such as your eco4 Bt radio is in a
'discoverable' state other Bluetooth devices can detect, pair with or
connect to it.
●
'Bluetooth pairing' occurs when two Bluetooth enabled devices agree
to establish a connection and communicate with each other.
●
Your radio will flash the Bluetooth indicator on the display when
it is discoverable or when it is trying to connect to a previously
paired Bluetooth device. When a device is paired with and connects
to your radio, the Bluetooth indicator light on the display will
remain lit.
Bluetooth connectivity performance may vary depending on the connected
Bluetooth devices. Please refer to the Bluetooth capabilities of your device
before connecting to your radio. All features may not be supported on
some paired Bluetooth devices.
A Bluetooth connection can provide a link for audio up to a distance of
approximately ten metres. When pairing two Bluetooth enabled devices,
for convenience, we recommend they should be no more than 2 to 3
metres apart. The presence of other functioning Bluetooth devices during
connection may lead to operational difficulties.
Bluetooth is a short-range radio communication system and generally
Bluetooth devices can communicate with each other clearly within a regular
sized room or office. The reliability of a Bluetooth connection between
different rooms will greatly depend upon the construction of the building.
21
Bluetooth communication range may be substantially reduced if the signal
passes through a solid object. Human bodies, brick and concrete walls,
heavy furniture or bookcases will all reduce the operational range of your
Bluetooth devices to a greater or lesser extent. Glass, dry-wall or wood
paneled walls and office partitions may have a less severe but noticeable
effect. Metal pipes, foil-lined plasterboard, metal window frames and
domestic wiring can also have an effect. You should position your Bluetooth
devices closer to each other if you observe communication difficulties.
WiFi networks and cordless phones generally use similar radio frequencies
to Bluetooth and may interfere with one another. If any interference is
noticed, then try relocating the radio or one of the other devices.
The Bluetooth capabilities of your radio allow it to receive audio from many
Bluetooth capable devices including mobile phones, personal computers
and tablets. Only one Bluetooth device can be connected to your radio
at a time. It supports the following Bluetooth profiles and functionality.
●
Your radio supports A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) which
is a stereo audio connection that streams stereo music from PCs,
mobile phones etc. SBC and AAC audio codecs are supported.
●
Your radio supports AVRCP (Audio Video Remote Control Profile)
which allows your radio to control music playback from the connected
device.
Note: Some mobile phones may temporarily disconnect from your radio
when you make or receive calls. Some devices may temporarily mute their
Bluetooth audio streaming when they receive text messages, emails or for
other reasons unrelated to audio streaming. Such behaviour is a function
of the connected device and does not indicate a fault with your radio.
Connecting Bluetooth devices
1. Ensure that the Bluetooth capability on your phone, tablet or PC is
enabled. You may need to refer to the user documentation for your
device, since the method will vary with each device.
2
2. Press and release the On/Off button to switch on the radio.
Mode
3. Press and release the Mode button on your radio until the Bluetooth
mode is selected. Your radio will show that it is 'discoverable' by
flashing the Bluetooth indicator on the display.
3
4. Using the Bluetooth settings of your phone, tablet or PC direct it to
search for 'discoverable' devices. After a few seconds, you should see
a device named 'ECO4 BT'. Just occasionally it may take longer for
the radio to be found by your device.
5. Select 'ECO4 BT' to cause your phone, tablet or PC to pair with your
radio and to establish a connection.
6. Once the connection is established, the Bluetooth indicator on the
radio's display will stop flashing and will remain lit. The name of the
connected device will be displayed on the radio.
You can now begin playing music from your smart-phone, tablet etc.
Some Bluetooth devices may require a 'Passkey' (an authentication key)
in order to establish a link between devices. A passkey is similar to a
password, although you only need to use the passkey once to establish
a link. If your device asks for a passkey to be able to pair with your radio
then enter a code of 0000 (four zeroes).
22
Playing audio files in Bluetooth mode
When you have successfully connected your radio with your chosen
Bluetooth device you can start to play your music using the controls on
the device.
1. Once playing has started adjust the volume to the required setting
using the Volume controls on your radio and on the connected device.
1
2. The volume of your radio in Bluetooth mode is affected by the volume
settings on the radio and also on the connected Bluetooth device.
If you adjust the volume control on the radio but you find that the volume
from the radio is not sufficient, it may be that the volume setting of the
connected device needs to be increased.
3. Adjust the treble and bass controls to the required setting on your
radio.
4
4. The audio player in your phone, tablet or PC may be able to respond
to the Play/Pause, Next track and Previous track control on the
radio. To play or pause the audio press and release the Select button.
To access the next or previous track, either press and release the
Tuning Up or Down buttons or rotate the Tuning control clockwise
or anti-clockwise as required. Press and hold the Tuning Up or Down
buttons to fast-forward or rewind the current track.
4

Note:That not all player applications or devices may respond to all of
these controls.
5. If your connected device is able to provide information from the track
being played, you may press and release the Info/Menu button to
display the Title, Artist and Album details on the display as well as
audio information, time and date. See 'Display options' page 26.

therefore recommend setting the volume to a low level before connecting
headphones to the radio.

can cause hearing loss.
To prevent possible hearing damage, do not listen at high
volume levels for long periods.

If nonetheless the mains plug is cut off, remove the fuse and dispose of
the plug immediately to avoid a possible shock hazard by inadvertent
connection to the mains supply.
