Before switching on make sure that the voltage of your electricity supply is the same as that indicated on the rating plate.

This appliance may be fitted with a non-rewireable plug. If it is necessary to change the fuse in a non-rewireable plug the fuse cover must be refitted. If the fuse cover is lost or damaged, the plug must not be used until a replacement available from the appliance manufacturer is obtained. It is important that the colour of the replacement fuse cover corresponds with the colour marking on the base of the plug.

If the plug has to be changed because it is not suitable for your socket, or becomes damaged, it should be cut off and an appropriate plug fitted following the wiring instructions below. The plug removed must be disposed of safely as insertion into a 13A socket is likely to cause an electrical hazard.

For your own safety read the following instructions carefully before attempting to connect this unit to the mains.

M P O R T A N T

As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:-

The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.

The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.

No connection is to be made to the earth terminal of the plug.

If a 13 Amp (BS 1363) Plug is used, a 3 Amp Fuse must be fitted, or if any other type of

Plug is used a 3 Amp Fuse must be fitted, either in the Plug , or on the Distribution Board.

AINTENANCE AND

C

ARE

Electronic products of this kind should never be subjected to extreme temperatures or high humidity. For instance, this set should not be placed in bathing areas or around stoves and radiators.

If necessary, clean the unit with a piece of cloth dampened with water only (Be sure the AC

Power Cord is disconnected from the Mains). Never use a polish or a strong detergent as this will damage the finish of the cabinet.

This equipment has been designed and manufactured to meet the highest international standards, but, like any electrical apparatus which is operated at mains voltage, care must be taken if you are to obtain the best results and safety is to be assured. This is particularly important with audio equipment.

DO. . .

DO. . .

Read the operating instructions before you attempt to use the equipment.

Ensure that all electrical connections (including the mains plug, extension leads and interconnections between pieces of equipment) are properly made and in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Check that the mains fuse rating is correct.

DO. . .

Always consult your dealer if you are ever in doubt about the installation, operation or safety of your equipment. He is the best person to advise you.

DON'T. . .

Obstruct the necessary all-round ventilation - especially DON'T stand the set close to curtains or on soft furnishing such as carpets. Overheating can cause unnecessary damage and shorten the life of the set.

Remember that to obtain the best performance and lasting satisfaction from your equipment, have it regularly maintained by a reliable service organization. Ensure that it is correctly used by all the family.

ABOVE ALL. . .

Never let children push anything into holes or slots in the case - this could result in an electric shock;

Never guess or take chances with electrical equipment of any kind - it is better to be safe than sorry!

To remove a disc from its storage case, press down on the centre 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.

Never use chemicals such as record sprays, antistatic sprays, benzine, or thinners to clean compact discs. These chemicals can irreparably damage the disc's surface.Discs should be returned to their cases after use. This avoids serious scratches that could cause the

Laser pickup to skip.

Do not expose discs to direct sunlight, high humidity, or high temperatures for extended periods. Long exposure to high temperatures can warp the disc.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

This compact disc player has built-in error compensation circuits to correct for minor defects in a disc. There are limits, however, to the amount of correction available.

In some cases, the CD player may skip some tracks on a disc during disc play. This problem may be caused by defects (such as scratches) in the disc being played, which are too large for the error compensation circuits to handle. If you encounter this problem, check the CD player's operation as follows, before having the unit serviced.

Play a different disc. If the CD player operates normally, the skipping problem is probably due to a defective disc.

BATTERY INSTALLATION

Insert 2 R03S (AAA or equivalent) size batteries into the battery compartment of the remote controller and replace the cover.

BATTERY REPLACEMENT

When the batteries become too weak, the operating distance of the remote controller is greatly reduced and you will need to replace the batteries.

Notes: To maintain the accuracy and long life of the transmitter, do not press two or more Buttons simultaneously.

If the remote control is not to be used for a long time, remove the batteries to prevent possible damage through leaking batteries.

Do not mix different types of batteries, or old batteries with new ones.

USING THE REMOTE CONTROLLER CORRECTLY

Point the remote controller at the Remote Sensor.

The functions of the Buttons on the remote control are the same as the corresponding controls on the main unit.

When there is a strong ambient light source, the performance of the infrared Remote

Sensor may be degraded, causing unreliable operation.

The maximum effective distance for remote control operation is about 5 metres (16.5 feet).

ASSETTE

C

ARE

Two common causes of trouble experienced when using cassettes are:—

(a) Tape jamming — Leading to uneven speed in playback, and

(b) 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.

Check that there are no loose layers of tape visible through the cassette centre window (see Fig. 1). Take up any loose 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 in Fig. 2, the tape may be jamming due to "ridges" formed in the winding of the tape (visible through the centre window). These may be removed, in most cases, by fast winding of the cassette from one end to the other and back again.

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.

LEANING

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.
