HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
Do not use this unit in direct sunlight or leave the unit
in a closed automobile (or yacht, etc.) where it would
be exposed to high temperatures above 40°C.
1 Avoid using the unit in the following places:
• Where the temperature may become excessively
high or low; the recommended temperature range
is 5°C and 35°C.
• Where it could be subject to vibrations.
• Where it is excessively humid, such as in a
bathroom.
• Where it could be magnetized by a magnet or
speaker.
2 Pay attention to dust.
Be sure to close the disc holder so that the lens is not
contaminated by dust. Do not touch the lens.
3 Condensation
Condensation may occur in the following cases, in
which the unit may not operate correctly:
• The unit is in a room where a heater has just been
switched on.
• The unit is in a place where there is smoke or high
humidity.
• The unit has just moved from a cold place to a
warm room.
In these cases, set the
(on/off) button to the on
position and wait one or two hours before use.
4 Volume control
Compact discs produce very little noise compared
with analog records. If you adjust the volume by
listening to the noise as you do with analog records,
the speakers could be damaged by a sudden blast of
sound when playback starts. Therefore, turn down
the volume before starting and adjust it as required
while playing a CD.
5 Safety mechanism
The unit incorporates a safety interlock mechanism
which switches off the laser beam when the disc
holder is opened.
6 Do not place magnetic objects such as
cassette tapes near the speakers.
Since the speakers contain magnets inside, do not
place cassette tapes or magnetic cards nearby as
recorded data could be erased.
7 Keep the unit away from the TV.
When the unit is used near a TV, the TV picture could
be distorted. If this happens, move the unit away from
the TV. If this does not correct the situation, avoid
using the unit when the TV is turned on.
8 Cleaning the cabinet
If the cabinet gets dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.
Never use benzine or thinner as these could damage
the surface finish.
9 When listening with headphones
• Do not listen at high volumes as it could damage
your hearing.
• For safety, do not drive while listening with
headphones.
10 Carrying handle
Do not raise or lower the carrying handle with the
telescopic antenna extended, to avoid damaging the
antenna. Position the carrying handle so that it does
not interfere with operation.

CASSETTE PLAYBACK
Notes on cassette tapes
Loading a cassette
• Use only type-I normal tapes. The recording/playback
characteristics of this unit are those for normal tapes,
which have different characteristics from CrO2 and
metal tapes.
• The use of tapes longer than 120 minutes is not
recommended, since characteristic deterioration may
occur and these tapes easily jam in the pinch roller and
the capstan.
• Loose tape may cause trouble. Gently tighten the tape
with a pencil as shown in the figure below.
1 Press the § STOP/EJECT button to open the
cassette holder.
2 Load a cassette with the open side up and the
playback side facing out as shown in the figure
below.
+ Forward direction
Turn the pencil to take up
the slack.

• To prevent recordings from being accidentally erased,
remove the tab(s) with a screwdriver. After the tabs
have been broken off, reseal the slots with adhesive
tape to erase or re-record.
3 Close the cassette holder by pressing it gently and
firmly.
The cassette holder clicks back into position.

in any literary, dramatic, musical, or artistic work
embodied therein.
• In recording, the ALC circuit automatically optimizes
the recording level. Adjustment of the recording level
is unnecessary.
• If a recording you made has excessive noise or static,
the unit may have been too close to a TV which was on

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the heads, capstan and
pinch roller
Cleaning is important!
When the tape is running, magnetic powder and dust
naturally accumulate on the heads, capstan and pinch
roller. When they become too dirty;
• Sound quality deteriorates.
• The sound output level drops.
• The previous recording is not completely erased.
• Recording is not performed satisfactorily.
To avoid these, clean the heads, capstan and pinch roller
every 10 hours of use.
Cleaning the CD pickup lens
If the CD pickup lens is dirty, the sound may be
degraded.
Open the disc door and clean the lens.
Use a blower (available at a camera store, etc.) to blow
off dust on the lens.
OPEN
Heads
Blower
Capstan
Pinch roller
Open the cassette holder. Clean the heads, capstan
and pinch roller.
For effective cleaning, use a cleaning kit available at an
audio store.
After cleaning, make sure that the cleaning fluid has dried
completely before loading a cassette.
Lens
Cautions:
• Keep magnets and metallic objects away from the
head. If the head becomes magnetized, noise will
increase and the sound will deteriorate.
• Demagnetize the recording/playback head every 20 to
30 hours of use with a head demagnetizer available at
an audio store. When demagnetizing the head, the
(on/off) button should be set to the off position.
As the erasure head of the unit is of magnetic type,
do not demagnetize it.
• Do not use anything other than alcohol for cleaning.
Thinner and benzine will damage the rubber pinch
roller.

2 When the 2 PLAY button is pressed, tape
does not move.
* Is the 8 PAUSE button pressed?
3 Playback sound is at a very low level.
* Are the batteries run down?
* Is the head dirty?
4 The ¶ REC button does not function.
* Have the safety tabs of the cassette been broken
off?
* Is a cassette loaded?
5 The disc is loaded but does not play.
* Is the disc upside down?
* Is the disc dirty?
* Is the disc damaged or warped?
* Is the lens dirty?
* Is there lens condensation? If so, set the
(on/
off) button to the on position and wait one or two
hours before use.
6 No sound from the speakers.
* Are headphones connected?
7 Since tape speed is irregular, wow and flutter
occur.
* Is the pinch roller or capstan dirty?
* Are the batteries run down?
8 Radio reception is poor and there is much
static.
* Is the antenna properly adjusted?
9 Remote control is impossible.

exhausted?
* Is the remote sensor section exposed to bright light
(direct sunlight, etc.)?
Note:
When the unit is moved from a cold place of around 0˚C
to a warm place, it may not operate normally, because
moisture has formed inside the deck. Normal operation
will be restored after waiting one or two hours.
