• Install a noise filter (commercially available) to
the mains line.
The timer cannot be set.
• Set the clock again (page 5).
The timer does not function.
• Press CLOCK/TIMER SELECT to set the timer
and light up “cDAILY” or “cREC” in the
display (pages 14 and 15).
• Check the timer setting and set the correct time
(pages 14 and 15).
• Cancel the Sleep Timer Function (page 13).
• Make sure the clock is correctly set.
The color on the TV screen is irregular.
• Move the speakers farther away from the TV set.

alternately.
• A strong signal was input. Press ?/1 to turn off
the system, leave the system turned off for a while,
then press ?/1 again to turn on the system. If
“PROTECT”, “PUSH” and “POWER” still
appear alternately, turn off the system and check
the speaker cords.
Speakers
Sound comes from only one channel, or the
left and right volumes are unbalanced.
• Check the speaker connections and placement.
CD

reception, then set up the antenna again. If you
cannot obtain good reception, we recommend you
connect a commercially available external
antenna.
• The supplied FM lead antenna receives signals
along its entire length, so make sure you extend it
fully.
• Keep the antennas away from the system and
other components.
• Consult your nearest Sony dealer if the supplied
AM antenna has come off the plastic stand.
• Try turning off surrounding electrical equipment.
A stereo FM program cannot be received in
stereo.
• Press FM MODE on the unit until “STEREO”
appears in the display.
Tape deck
The tape does not record or play, or there is a
decrease in sound level.
• The heads are dirty. Clean them (page 23).
• The record/playback heads are magnetised.
Demagnetise them (page 23).
The tape does not erase completely.
• The record/playback heads are magnetised.
Demagnetise them (page 23).

Additional Information
Precautions
On operating voltage
Before operating the system, check that the operating
voltage of your system is identical with the voltage of
your local power supply.
On safety
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned off.
• Unplug the system from the wall outlet (mains) if it
is not to be used for an extended period of time. To
disconnect the power cord (mains lead), pull it out by
the plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the system,
unplug the system and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
• AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified
service shop.
On placement
• Do not place the system in an inclined position.
• Do not place the system in locations where it is;
– Extremely hot or cold
– Dusty or dirty
– Very humid
– Subject to vibrations
– Subject to direct sunlight.
• Use caution when placing the unit or speakers on
surfaces that have been specially treated (with wax,
oil, polish, etc.) as staining or discoloration of the
surface may result.
On heat buildup
• Although the system heats up during operation, this
is not a malfunction.
• Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the system.
• If you continuously use this system at a high volume,
the cabinet temperature of the top, side and bottom
rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not
touch the cabinet.
• To prevent a malfunction, do not cover the
ventilation hole.
22GB
• If the system is brought directly from a cold to a
warm location, or is placed in a very damp room,
moisture may condense on the lens inside the CD
player. Should this occur, the system will not operate
properly. Remove the disc and leave the system
turned on for about an hour until the moisture
evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any disc.
If you have any questions or problems concerning your
system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
Notes on discs
• Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning cloth.
Wipe the disc from the center out.
• Do not use solvents such as benzene, thinner,
commercially available cleaners or anti-static spray
intended for vinyl LPs.
• Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat
sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car
parked in direct sunlight.
• Do not use discs encircled with a protection ring.
This may cause a malfunction to the system.
• When using discs that have glue or similar tacky
substance on the label side of the disc or that used a
special ink when the label was printed, there is a
chance that the disc or label may become attached to
parts inside this unit. When this occurs, it may not be
possible to remove the disc, and may also cause this
unit to malfunction. Be sure to check that the label
side of the disc is not sticky before using.
The following types of disc should not be used:
– Rental or used discs with attached seals where the
glue extends beyond the seal. The perimeter of the
seal on the disc is tacky.
– Discs that have labels printed using a special ink
that feels tacky when touched.
• Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart, square,
star) cannot be played on this unit. Attempting to do
so may damage the unit. Do not use such discs.
Notes on CD-R and CD-RW
• This system can play CD-R/CD-RW discs edited by
the user. However, note that playback of some discs
may not be possible depending on the recording
device used for recording or the disc condition.
• CD-R and CD-RW discs that have not been finalized
(processing to allow play by a normal CD player)
cannot be played.
• CD-R and CD-RW discs recorded in multi-session
mode are not supported.
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.
Cleaning the cabinet
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with mild detergent solution. Do not
use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or
solvent such as thinner, benzene or alcohol.
To save a tape permanently
To prevent a tape from being accidentally recorded
over, break off the cassette tab from side A or B as
illustrated.

deck
Take up any slack in the tape. Otherwise, the tape may
get entangled in the parts of the tape deck and become
damaged.
When using a tape longer than
