Precautions
On operating voltage
Before operating the unit, check that the operating
voltage of your unit 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 unit from the wall outlet (mains) if it is
not to be used for an extended period of time. To
disconnect the cord (mains lead), pull it out by the
plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
component, unplug the unit and have the
component checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
• AC power cord must be changed only at the
qualified service shop.
On placement
On heat buildup
• Although the unit heats up during the operation,
this is not the malfunction.
• Place the unit in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the unit.
If you continuously use this unit at a large 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 for cooling fan.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your unit, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
Notes on CDs
• Before playing, clean the CD with a cleaning cloth.
Wipe the CD from the center out.
• Do not use solvents.
• Do not expose the CD to direct sunlight or heat
sources.
• Discs with non- standard shapes (e.g., heart, square,
star) cannot be played on this unit. Do not use such
discs.
Note on CD-R/CD-RW playback
Discs recorded on CD-R/CD-RW drives may not be
played back because of scratches, dirt, recording
conditions or the drive’s characteristics. Besides, the
discs, which are not yet finalized at the end of
recording, cannot be played back.
Cleaning the cabinet
Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with mild
detergent solution.
continued
Additional Information
• Do not place the unit in an inclined position.
• Do not place the unit in locations where it is:
— extremely hot or cold
— dusty or dirty
— very humid
— vibrating
— 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.
• If the unit 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 unit will not operate properly.
Remove the CD and leave the unit turned on for
about an hour until the moisture evaporates.
• When you move the unit, take out any discs.

Precautions (continued)
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.
If you later want to reuse the tape for recording, cover
the broken tab with adhesive tape. However, be
careful not to cover the detector slots which allow the
tape player to automatically detect the type of tape.
Tab of side B
Tab of side A
Break off the
cassette tab of
side A
Before placing a cassette in the tape
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 90
minutes
The tape is very elastic. Do not change the tape
operations such as play, stop, and fast-winding, etc.
frequently. The tape may get entangled in the tape
deck.
32GB
Cleaning the tape heads
Clean the tape heads after every 10 hours of use.
Make sure to clean the tape heads before you start an
important recording or after playing an old tape. Use
separately sold dry-type or wet-type cleaning cassette.
For details, refer to the instructions of the cleaning
cassette.
Demagnetizing the tape heads
Demagnetize the tape heads and the metal parts that
have contact with the tape every 20 to 30 hours of use
with a separately sold demagnetizing cassette. For
details, refer to the instructions of the demagnetizing
cassette.
