RE-ATTACHING THE TURNTABLE DRIVE BELT
THE TURNTABLE DRIVE BELT IS FACTORY FITTED - USE THESE INSTRUCTIONS ONLY IF THE TURNTABLE FAILS TO ROTATE ....
OCCASIONALLY THIS MAY HAPPEN AFTER TRANSPORTATION OR ROUGH HANDLING DURING SHIPPING BY COURIERS. TO
CHECK IF THE DRIVE BELT MAY HAVE COME OFF THE MECHANISM, SPIN THE ROUND PLATTER BY HAND, IF IT ROTATES
FREELY AND WITHOUT RESISTANCE THE BELT MAY HAVE BECOME DETACHED, IN WHICH CASE PLEASE FOLLOW THE
INSTRUCTIONS BELOW ON HOW TO REFIT THE DRIVE BELT:
STEP 1
Use a screwdriver to remove the black iron ‘C’-clip (iron binder) and lift the
turntable off the Turntable mechanism.
STEP 2
Retrieve the dropped black rubber band (drive belt) and replace it around the
column on the bottom of the turntable, then pull it out gently without
over-stretching and hook the band around the small column point at the edge of
the turntable, as shown in the diagram.
STEP 3
To fix the turntable back onto the phonograph mechanism, make sure the column
point is positioned over the correct place on the phonograph mechanism, while
placing the axis of the turntable in the hole on the phonograph mechanism, as
shown in the diagram.
STEP 4
Gently turn the turntable until a ‘plop’-sound is heard, which
indicates the repositioning of the rubber band.

E-12
Notes:
– Make sure the direction is correct when inserting a tape into the cassette slot. Some searching noise will be
heard, this is quite normal.
– The system cannot perform the normal playback function during Fast Forward mode.
– It is strongly recommended the cassette tape is removed from the Cassette Player slot after each use - don’t
leave the cassette tape inside the system when you do not intend to play it.
CASSETTE CARE
Two common causes of trouble experienced when using cassettes are:
1. Tape jamming, leading to uneven speed during playback.
2. Tape entangling, when the tape wraps itself around vital parts of the mechanism.
To avoid these problems occurring, take the following precautions:
a) Check that there are no loose layers of tape visible through the cassette centre
window (see fig. 1).
b) Take up any loose layers (using a pencil or ballpoint pen with hexagonal barrell)
before inserting the cassette (see fig. 2) into the mechanism.
Notes: If the cassette feels tight whilst performing this operation (see fig. 2), the tape
may be jamming due to ridges formed in the winding of the tape (visible through the
centre window). In most cases, these may be removed by fast rewinding of the
cassette from one end to the other, turning it over and repeating this action again.
Do not expose cassettes to direct sunlight, dust or oil, and do not touch the tape
surfaces.

COMPACT DISC CARE
To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the centre of the case and lift the disc out, holding it
carefully by the edges. Fingerprints and dust should be carefully wiped off the disc’s recorded surface with a
soft cloth. Unlike conventional Vinyl or Shellac records, compact discs have no grooves to collect dust and
microscopic debris, so a gentle wipe with a soft, lint-free dry and clean cloth should remove most particles.
Wipe in a straight line from the inside to the outside of the disc. Never use detergents or abrasive cleaners to
clean the disc. If necessary, use a CD cleaning kit. Small dust particles and light stains will have absolutely no
effect on sound reproduction quality. Never fix labels to the surface of compact discs or write on them, except
very gently with a specialist CD-R Pen.
REPEAT/RANDOM MODE (on the remote control only)
