This appliance may be fitted with a non-rewireable plug. If it is necessary to change the fuse in a non-rewireable plug the fuse cover must be refitted. If the fuse cover is lost or damaged, the plug must not be used until a replacement available from the appliance manufacturer is obtained. It is important that the colour of the replacement fuse cover corresponds with the colour marking on the base of the plug.
If the plug has to be changed because it is not suitable for your socket, or becomes damaged, it should be cut off and an appropriate plug fitted following the wiring instructions below. The plug removed must be disposed of safely as insertion into a 13A socket is likely to cause an electrical hazard.
For your own safety read the following instructions carefully before attempting to connect this unit to the mains.

Hearing is very important to you and to us so please take care when operating this equipment. It is strongly recommended that you follow the listed guidelines in order to prevent possible damage or loss of hearing.
S T A B L I S H
O U N D
E V E L
Over time your hearing will adapt to continous loud sounds and will give the impression that the volume has in fact been reduced. What seems normal to you may in fact be harmful. To guard against this BEFORE YOUR HEARING ADAPTS set the volume at a low level.
Slowly increase the level until you can hear comfortably and clearly and without distortion.
Damage to your hearing is accumulative and is irreversible.
Any ringing or discomfort in the ears indicates that the volume is too loud.
Remember listening for prolonged period of time at high volume levels will harm your hearing.
The following list of typical sound levels may assist you in recognising just how loud you have set the volume level.

To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the centre of the case and lift th 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 records, compact discs have no grooves to collect dust and microscopic debris so gently wiping with a soft cloth should remove most particles. Wipe in a straight line from the inside to the outside of the disc. Small dust particles and light stains are likely to have no effect on reproduction quality.
Never use chemicals such as record sprays, antistatic sprays, benzine, or thinners to clean compact discs. These chemicals can irreparably damage the disc's surface.
Discs should be returned to their cases after use. This avoids serious scratches that could cause the Laser pickup to skip.
Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high humidity, or high temperatures for extended periods. Long exposure to high temperatures can warp the disc.
m m m m m Press the CD/DISC SKIP button.
Press the CD OPEN/CLOSE button to open the disc tray.
Once the CD tray has opened, remove a disc from its case and place it carefully in one of the indentations in the compartment with the label side facing up. Smaller, 3" (8 cm) discs, may also be used with this CD player.
To load additional CD's press the CD/Disc Skip button to rotate the CD tray, upto 3 discs can be placed in the tray at any one time.
To close the disc compartment press the CD Open/Close Button or Play/Pause button.
m Do not put anything except a compact disc into the compartment. Foreign objects can damage the mechanism.
m m Do not force the compartment by hand during the opening and closing operations.
Keep the disc compartment closed when not in use to prevent dirt and dust from entering the mechanism.

m m m Press the CD/SKIP Button or CD direct access buttons to select the CD of your choice.
Press the Play/Pause Button, disc play will begin from the start of the first track.
A particular track can be selected by turning the CD SKIP Control. If this is done before pressing the Play/Pause Button, disc play will start with the selected track when the Play/Pause Button is pressed.
At the end of the disc, playback will stop.
Notes: If the disc is deeply scratched, or too dirty, disc play may not start.
If an improperly centred disc is played, noise may be heard in the mechanism. The use of such discs should be avoided.
This compact disc player has built-in error compensation circuits to correct for minor defects in a disc. There are limits, however, to the amount of correction available.
In some cases, the CD player may skip some tracks on a disc during disc play. This problem may be caused by defects (such as scratches) in the disc being played, which are too large for the error compensation circuits to handle. If you encounter this problem, play a new disc. If the CD player operates normally, the skipping problem is probably due to a defective disc.
m Press the Stop Button. Disc playback will stop, the Play indicator will turn off, and the display will show the total number of tracks and the total playing time of the CD.
m To pause playback, press the Play/Pause Button. Disc play will pause at the current play position and the display will flash.
m To resume playback, press the Play/Pause Button again. The Play indicator will be displayed.
m m For example, to skip ahead to the beginning of track 5 while track 4 is playing.
Twist the CD SKIP Control clockwise once. Disc playback will resume at the beginning of track 5.
The CD player will skip ahead to the next track each time the CD SKIP Control knob is twisted clockwise. Repeatedly twisting the CD SKIP Control makes the CD player skip ahead through the disc track by track. Once the beginning of the last track is reached the CD player will not advance any further.

Two common causes of trouble experienced when using cassettes are:— (a) Tape jamming - Leading to uneven speed in playback, and (b) Tape tangling - Where the tape wraps itself around vital parts of the mechanism.
To reduce the likelihood of these problems occurring, the following precautions should be observed.
Check that there are no loose layers of tape visible through the cassette centre window (see Fig. 1). Take up any loose layers, using a pencil or hexagonal barrelled ballpoint pen, before inserting the cassette into the machine (see Fig. 2).
If the cassette feels " tight " while performing operation shown in Fig.
2, the tape may be jamming due to " ridges " formed in the winding of the tape (visible through the centre window). These may be removed, in most cases, by fast winding of the cassette from one end to the other and back again.
Use only well-known brands of tape.
Avoid use of C-120 cassettes.
Furthermore, do not expose cassettes to direct sunlight, dust or oil, and do not touch the tape surfaces.
The tape heads, pinch roller and capstan require periodic cleaning. This removes particles of the metal oxide coating that wear off the tape and accumulate on these parts and impair performance. To clean the heads use a tape cleaning cassette tape availible from most audio retailers.
To prevent a recording on a cassette tape being erased accidentally, break off the tab on the rear of the tape, as in the diagram. Now recording on this side is no longer possible. You can render this protection ineffective by covering the hole with a piece of adhesive tape.
