to wind forwards or backwards to the start or finish of a music track
(for example).
Connect to the Mains supply and the green
power indicator (10) will light.
To engage, select PLAY and then depress the PLAY key for a second
time. The PLAY LED will flash twice while the cassette continues to play.
Pressing either the FAST FORWARD or REWIND keys will now initiate
SEARCH mode.
BATTERY POWER (393/R only)
As well as using mains power, the 393/R is fitted with a rechargeable
battery allowing the unit to be used almost anywhere. When the
rechargeable battery is low, the power light (10) will flash. The rate of
discharge depends on battery condition, volume setting and use of
cassette mechanism (rewind/fast forward requires more power).
To deselect the SEARCH mode, depress the PLAY key again. The PLAY
LED will flash once.
SEARCH mode is also cancelled when the tape reaches the end, or the
STOP button is depressed.
CUE and REVIEW will not operate in the SEARCH mode.
Charging the Batttery: Charging occurs automatically when the unit is
connected to the mains. It takes approximately 6 to 8 hours to reach
full charge. The battery cannot be overcharged.
•
WARNING: The life of a rechargeable battery is shortened by over
discharging and not immediately recharging. If left in a discharged
state, the battery can be permanently and irreversibly damaged.
You may find that a small amount of distortion is heard at the start of
a recording, especially if the signal to be recorded is strong (loud). ALC
attunes itself to the general level of sound in a room - so for the best
recordings, allow the ALC to settle before recording commences. To do
this, press the PAUSE key followed by the RECORD key. The ALC will
monitor the sound levels and set itself. Release the PAUSE key after a
few seconds monitoring to start the recording.
LOGIC CONTROLLED SOLENOID CASSETTE DECK (1)
The cassette mechanism offers ‘one touch’ record, cue and review facilities,
and includes full Autostop - disengaging the drive automatically when the
tape reaches its end. For optimum performance it is important to keep the
pinch wheel and heads clean. If in doubt about cleaning consult your audio
visual advisor or visit the PRODUCT SUPPORT section of our website.
AUTOMATIC LEVEL CONTROL (ALC). The record level is adjusted and set
automatically to provide optimum performance from the AUX or
MICROPHONE inputs.
•
Reset the turns counter (2) to zero using the reset button (3) whenever
you wish to be able to mark the start of a particular passage.
PLAYING A PRE-RECORDED TAPE
The solenoid controlled mechanism offers some useful features.
•
The ability to switch directly between REWIND, FAST FORWARD and
PLAY without needing to select STOP first.
•
CUE and REVIEW, selected by pressing FAST FORWARD or REWIND
while in PLAY mode, allows the user to fast forward or rewind the tape
by a few seconds.
TIP: Holding the key down allows the tape to go forwards or backwards
for as long as the key is depressed. AS SOON AS THE KEY IS RELEASED
THE TAPE WILL BEGIN PLAYING AGAIN.
•
To record, press the RECORD key, followed by the PLAY key.
•
EJECT (12) will only operate in the STOP and PAUSE modes. While the
tape is moving, the EJECT button remains locked and cannot be used.
This prevents damage to the cassette and the mechanism.
•
NORMAL / CHROME TYPE TAPE. The mechanism will recognise which
type of tape is inserted and selects Normal or Chrome mode as
required, providing optimum performance at all times.
•
SEARCH facility looks for a gap of 3 seconds or more, allowing the user
Open the cassette door with the EJECT key (12)
and insert a pre-recorded tape. Close the door
and press the PLAY key. Adjust VOLUME and
TONE controls to suit. To pause the tape, press the

CASSETTE INCORRECTLY LOADED WARNING! If
all three indicator lights flash five times, then the
cassette may be loaded incorrectly. Without using
undue force, eject the tape and re-insert it before
trying to play the tape.
CASSETTE JAMMED! Turning off the power while the cassette is still
engaged may cause the mechanism to jam. To remove the trapped cassette,
re-connect to the power supply and switch on. The cassette mechanism will
reset itself and the tape can then be removed.
Use VOLUME (6) and TONE (7) to adjust sound.

TURNS COUNTER
LINE IN SOCKET (5)
To enable users to find a particular section of the cassette tape, a turns
counter (2) is fitted. To reset the counter to zero, press the reset button (3).
Use the LINE IN/TAPE OUT socket (5) to record from another source
such as CD or radio. This socket also provides a tape out signal while
the tape deck is playing a cassette.
VALUABLE RECORDING PROTECTION
You can protect valuable recordings by knocking
out the safety tab on the top left hand edge of
a cassette. Once removed, the tape cannot
be recorded over (on that side only).
•
•
If the RECORD key on the cassette
mechanism cannot be depressed
and the record indicator light flashes
three times, check that the left-hand
safety tab on the top edge of your cassette
has not been removed to protect an original
recording.
HEADPHONE SOCKETS (11)
Up to 6 pairs of mono or stereo headphones may be connected.
Connecting a pair to the MASTER socket automatically disconnects the
internal loudspeaker.
EXTERNAL LOUDSPEAKER SOCKET (9)
a) For external and internal loudspeakers operating together minimum external impedance 8 ohm.
If you do wish to use the cassette for recording,
replace the missing tab with self adhesive tape.
b) For an external loudspeaker only - minimum external impedance
4 ohm.
GROUP LISTENING
INTERNAL MEMO MIC (8)
Press the RECORD key and speak clearly into the blue MEMO MIC. The
optimum distance when speaking into the mic is approximately
600mm (2 feet).
Note: The internal MEMO MIC is ideal for notebook recordings but not
recommended for assessment recordings. External microphones (such
as Coomber models 1918 or 1808) will offer greatly superior quality.
If more headphones are required to operate from Coomber
equipment then use Coomber headphone systems model no.1908/PK C
(1908 distribution box and 6 x 1929 stereo headphones at special
package prices). Telephone or visit our website for details.
SERIAL NUMBER SUFFIX CODES
The following suffixes may be appended after the serial number.
/R
denotes that a rechargeable battery and charger circuit has
been fitted.
-110
denotes 110v - 120v 60Hz version for overseas markets.
EXTERNAL MICROPHONE SOCKETS (4)
For clear recordings use external microphones and good quality cassettes. Up to two microphones may be connected for recording (4).
If using one microphone only - ensure it is connected to the MASTER
MICROPHONE socket. This disconnects the internal MEMO MIC (8).
