Battery operation
1. Release the catch securing the rear door of your radio.
2. Insert four 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. Close the rear door and
secure the catch.
3. The Low Battery indicator lighting, distortion, or the radio switching
itself off are all signs that the batteries may need replacing.
1
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 RD-60 is used via the
AC adaptor whenever possible with battery operation for occasional
or stand-by use only.
Using the AC adaptor
1. Insert the adaptor plug into the DC in socket on the rear of your
radio.
2. Plug the adaptor into a standard 13A mains socket outlet. Whenever
the adaptor is used the batteries are automatically disconnected.
The AC adaptor should be disconnected from the mains supply and
the radio when not in use.
•
IMPORTANT: The mains adaptor 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
adaptor should be removed from the mains socket outlet
completely.
If you need any further advice, please call our Technical Helpline on :020 8758 0338 (Mon-Fri)
