electrical transformers, and other devices. Keep tapes away from magnets and magnetic
fields.

might prevent automatic stop. To clean a cassette tape, open the compartment door, push
the PLAY button and
gently clean the heads, capstan, and pinch wheel with a head cleaner.

recording quality, place the recorder with the microphone freely exposed and as close
as convenient to the sound source.
NOTE: The automatic level control (ALC) will set the record level for optimum recordings,
regardless of volume setting.
Always unplug the power cord before cleaning, and allow 30 minutes drying
time when using a liquid cleaner.
Clean heads after every 25 hours of use.
• Demagnetize the head occasionally with a head demagnetizing cassette (available from
many audio equipment stores).
• Never use any metal objects on or near the tape heads.
Do not allow any cleaning material to fall into the tape assembly.
QUIT SLACKING
A little bit of slack in your tapes can cause scratches on the tape, or
worse yet, the tape could break. If you notice some slack in the
tape, use a pencil to tighten it up before you insert it.
