Battery replacement
When the batteries are nearly exhausted, the following symptoms may
appear. In this case, replace the batteries with the fresh ones. (Do not
use fresh ones and old ones together.)
For the main unit
Mistracking occurs during CD playback (or sound is distorted intermittently
during TAPE playback). When these symptoms occur, “DC OFF” appears
in the display window and the power is turned off after 1 minute.
For the memory back-up
When the AC power cord is unplugged, the stored memory (timer/clock
setting/preset tuning) is erased.
It is recommended that the AC power cord be used when recording
important material or listening to a CD.
÷ For better battery usage
Continuous operation of the unit causes the battery power to be
consumed quicker than noncontinuous operation.
Operation of the unit in a cold place causes the battery power to be
consumed more quickly than in a warm place.
÷ For power supply
The use of household AC is recommended, when continuous operation
of the unit is required over a longer period of time.
CAUTIONS:
÷ WHEN NOT USING THE UNIT FOR A LONG TIME (MORE THAN
TWO WEEKS) OR WHEN ALWAYS USING HOUSEHOLD AC,
REMOVE THE BATTERIES TO AVOID A MALFUNCTION OR
DAMAGE TO THE UNIT.

CONNECTED, THE POWER IS AUTOMATICALLY SWITCHED FROM
THE BATTERIES TO THE HOUSEHOLD AC EVEN WHEN THE
BATTERIES ARE LOADED. HOWEVER, REMOVE THE BATTERIES
WHEN USING THE POWER CORD.
CAUTIONS WHEN USING BATTERIES
When batteries are used incorrectly, it may result in the leakage of
chemicals from the batteries or they may explode. The following
care should be taken:
÷ Check that the positive ª and negative · terminals of the
batteries are positioned correctly and load them as shown in the
diagram.
÷ Do not mix new and old batteries together, or mix different types
of batteries.
÷ Do not try to recharge non-rechargeable batteries.
÷ Remove the batteries when the unit is not to be used for an
extended period of time.

MAINTENANCE
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 output sound level drops.
÷ Previously recorded tape is not completely erased.
÷ Recording is not performed satisfactorily.
Therefore, you should clean the heads, etc. after every 10 hours of use
for optimal recording conditions.

Clean the heads, pinch roller and capstan.
For effective cleaning, use a cleaning kit available from an audio store.
After cleaning, be sure that the cleaning fluid has dried completely before
loading a cassette.
Cautions:
1. Keep magnets and metallic objects away from the head.
If the head becomes magnetized, noise will increase and the sound
will deteriorate. Demagnetize the head every 20-30 hours of use with
a head eraser (available from an audio store). (When demagnetizing
button should be set to STANDBY.)
