Note on DualDiscs
Note
If you turn the unit on again without replacing the batteries
after “LO-BATT” appears, you may be able to use some
function such as the tuner for a short period of time, but the
following issues may occur. Replace the batteries with new
ones when “LO-BATT” appears.
The unit turns on but then turns off after “LO-BATT”
flashes for 8 seconds.

Cleaning the tape heads and tape
path
Failure to clean the tape heads can cause degraded
sound quality or inability of the unit to play or record
tapes. Clean the capstan, pinch roller, play/recording
head, and erase-head after every 10 hours of use
using a commercially available cleaning kit. Clean
their surfaces as shown below using a cotton swab
moistened with cleaning fluid included in the kit.
 A DualDisc is a two sided disc product which
mates DVD recorded material on one side with
digital audio material on the other side. However,
since the audio material side does not conform to
the Compact Disc (CD) standard, playback on this
product is not guaranteed.
Music discs encoded with copyright
protection technologies
 This product is designed to playback discs that
conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard.
Recently, various music discs encoded with
copyright protection technologies are marketed
by some record companies. Please be aware that
among those discs, there are some that do not
conform to the CD standard and may not be
playable by this product.
 Remove the overwrite protection tab from side A
or B to prevent accidental recording. If you want
to reuse the tape for recording, cover the broken
tab using adhesive tape.
