DEAR JENSEN R CUSTOMER
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you've just purchased is only the
start of your musical enjoyment. Now it's time to consider how you can maximize the
fun and excitement your equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic
Industries Association's Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most out of
your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come through
loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion and, most importantly, without
affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing "comfort level" adapts to higher
volumes of sound. So what sounds "normal" can actually be loud and harmful to your
hearing. Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your
hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
Start your volume control at a low setting.
Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and
without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
Set the dial and leave it there.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the
future. After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.
We Want You Listening For a Lifetime
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment.
Since hearing damage from loud noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this
manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association's Consumer Electronics
Group recommend you avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise.
Customer's Record:
The serial number of this product is found on its back cover. You should note the
serial number of this unit in the space provided as a permanent record of your
purchase to aid in identification in the event of theft of loss.

PROTECT YOUR FURNITURE !!
This model is equipped with non-skid rubber 'feet' to prevent the product
from moving when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made from
non-migrating rubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any
marks or stains on your furniture. However certain types of oil based
furniture polishes, wood preservatives, or cleaning sprays may cause the
rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a rubber residue on the furniture.
To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly recommend that you
purchase small self-adhesive felt pads, available at hardware stores and
home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the bottom
of the rubber 'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

MAKING A TAPE RECORDING
This cassette recorder features an Automatic Recording Volume Level Control
System that prevents overloaded or distorted recordings. You can change the
volume level as often as you like during the recording process. It will not have any
effect on the volume level of the recording itself.
1.) Insert a good quality blank tape into DECK A with the exposed tape facing
down and the full reel on the left side. Close DECK A door.
2.) Select the source you wish to record:
PHONO, TUNER, CD or TAPE (Tape Dubbing) and operate that source as you
normally would.
3.) Press the Record
key on DECK A to begin recording.
NOTE: When recording from Cassette B to Cassette A you can press the HISPEED DUBBING button to "ON
" to select high speed dubbing which allows
you to make recordings at approximately twice the normal recording speed.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
1. Do not subject the unit to excessive force, shock, dust or extreme temperature.
2. Do not tamper the internal components of the unit.
3. Clean your unit with a dry cloth. Solvent or detergent should never be used.
4. Avoid leaving your unit in direct sunlight or in hot, humid or dusty places.
5. Keep your unit away from heating appliances and sources of electrical noise
such as fluorescent lamps or motors.
ABOUT CASSETTE TAPES
Whenever you record on a cassette any previously recorded material is erased as
the new material is recorded. To prevent you from accidentally erasing material
which you wish to save, blank cassettes are equipped with erase prevention tabs
for each side of the tape. If the erase prevention tab for side A is removed, you
cannot accidentally record on side A. The Record
key cannot be depressed if
the erase prevention tab on the cassette has been removed.
To prevent accidental erasing on side A of a cassette use a small screw driver or
similar tool to break off the erase prevention tab for side A. This prevents the
record key from locking.

BREAK OFF TO PREVENT RECORDING
If later you do wish to record on side A of the cassette, cover the tab opening with
a piece of cellophane tape. This will allow the Record
key to function again.
CASSETTE CARE
Two common causes of trouble experienced when using cassettes are:
1.) Tape jamming - Leading to uneven speed in playback, and
2.) 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:
26
MS9903TT_ib080503.p65
25
5/8/2003, 11:44
Check that there are no loose layers of tape visible
through the cassette center window (see Fig. 1).
Take up anyloose 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 see Fig. 2 , the tape may be jamming due to
ridges formed in the winding of the tape visible
through the center window . These may be removed, in
most cases, by fast winding of the cassette from one
end to the other and back again.
Fig. 2
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.
HEAD CLEANING
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.Switch off the power, press the Stop/Eject
open the cassettedoor, and press the Play

and capstan with a soft cloth or cotton pad dampened in isopropyl alcohol or special

COMPACT DISC CARE
To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the center of the case
and lift the 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 will have absolutely no effect on
reproduction quality.
Clean the disc periodically with a soft, lint-free, dry cloth. Never use detergents
or abrasive cleaners to clean the disc. If necessary, use a CD cleaning kit.
Never write on or affix labels to the surface of compact discs.
CARE OF THE CABINETS
If the cabinets become dusty wipe them with a soft dry dust cloth. Do not use
any wax or polish sprays on the cabinets.
If the front panel becomes dirty or smudged with fingerprints it may be cleaned
with a soft cloth slightly dampened with a mild soap and water solution. Never
use abrasive cloths or polishes as these will mar the finish of your unit.
Caution: Never allow any water or other liquids to get inside the unit while
cleaning.
