— Over time your hearing will adapt to continuous 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.
Once you have established a comfortable listening level, DO NOT INCREASE
THE SOUND LEVEL FURTHER.

1. POWER SOURCES
Power Connection
1. Plug the AC 230V Power Cord into an AC
household outlet.
2. If you want battery back up, connect one 9
Volt battery (not included) to the battery
terminals of the Battery compartment.
3. This battery will maintain time and memory
function during a power cut, but not display
it.
4. Normal display and function will resume
when power is restored, replace the
battery periodically.
Note This is an optional feature, no battery
is required for normal operation.
2. PLAYER MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the Cabinet
Cleaning the lens
Before cleaning ensure the unit is unplugged
from the mains. Wipe with a soft cloth. If the
cabinet is very dirty, dampen the cloth with a
weak solution of neutral detergent and water,
and then wipe clean.
A dirty lens will cause sound skipping and, if
the lens is very dirty, the CD may not work.
Open the disc cover and clean the lens as
follows:
Dust or Dry Particles
Using a camera lens brush/blower, blow on
the lens couple times, then wipe it lightly with
the brush to remove dust. Then, blow on the
lens once more.
Finger prints
If the lens cannot be cleaned by using a
brush/blower, use a dry cotton swab starting
in the middle and working to the outside edge.
3. DISC CLEANING, POWER FAILURE
4. LOCATION OF CONTROLS
Cleaning the Disc
1. To handle a disc use only one of the two
manners illustrated.
Note
1
Do not touch the rainbow - colored
side.
2. To wipe a disc, use only a soft cloth. Do
not use benzene or thinner which will
damage the disc. The disc should always
be wiped in a straight line from the center
to the edge. It should never be wiped in a
circular motion.
Maintenance and care
When AC power is interrupted, time and
alarm settings will be lost (unless 9 volt
optional battery was installed) after power is
restored . The digital display will blink to show
your power was interrupted. You must reset
time and alarm.
1. Electronic products should never be
subjected to extreme temperatures nor
high humidity to ensure good
performance and a long life-time. The
clock radio should not be placed in
bathing areas, or around stoves and
radiators, etc. Always leave sufficient
space around the unit for ventilation.
2. If necessary, only clean the cabinet of the
unit with a soft dampened piece of cloth
(be sure the AC power cord is unplugged
from the outlet). Never use a polish or a
strong detergent for cleaning since this
can damage the finish of the cabinet.
Battery back up
To keep alarm time and time of day settings in
memory during a brief power failure or if the
power cord is accidentally unplugged, install
a 9V battery into the Battery Compartment at
rear of unit.
