Cleaning Your Mini-Compact
System
Safety Precautions
GB
The following diagrams illustrate the precautions to be taken
when using or moving your mini-compact system.
To obtain the best possible results from your mini-compact
system, you must clean the following elements regularly:
The outer casing
The compact disc player
The cassette players (heads, rollers and drive capstans)
Always unplug the system from the wall outlet:
Before cleaning it
If you are not going to be using it for a long time
Outer Casing
Clean the outer casing regularly using a soft cloth and a light detergent. Do
not use abrasive powders, liquids or aerosol cleaners. Never let any liquids
get into the system.
Ambient operating conditions:
Ambient temperature
5°C-35°C
Humidity
10-75%
Do not expose the unit to direct sun
radiation or other heat sources.
This could lead to overheating and
malfunction of the unit.
Compact Disc Player
1
2
Before playing a compact disc, clean it with a special CD cleaning
agent. Do not use the same cleaning agents as for vinyl LP records.
Carefully wipe the disc from the centre outward.
Regularly clean the player with a special cleaning disc (available from
your local dealer).
Tape Decks
1
2
Do not place potted plants or vases
on top of the unit. Moisture entering
the unit could lead to dangerous
electric shock and can cause
equipment damage. In such events
immediately disconnect the main
plug from the socket.
During thunderstorms, disconnect
the main plug from the socket.
Main voltage peaks due to lightning could damage the unit.
Press PUSH EJECT(
) to open the cassette deck.

VOLUME
UP
1
2
DOWN
Remove the batteries from the
remote control, if not used for any
extended periods.
Leaking batteries can cause serious
damage to the remote control.
When using headphones, take care
not to listen at excessive volumes.
Extended use of headphones at
high volumes will lead to hearing
damage.
Do not place heavy items on the
main lead. Main cable damage can
lead to damage of the equipment (fire
hazard) and can cause electric
shock.
Do not remove any equipment panels.
The inside of the unit
contains live components, which
cause electric shock.
If you will not be using the remote control for a long time,
remove the batteries to prevent corrosion.
Although your system is very hard-wearing, it should not be
used in an excessively dusty environment or subjected to
shocks or extreme heat (close to heating appliances or in
direct sunlight, etc.).
If the unit emits an unpleasant odor when in use, unplug it
from the main supply and contact the after-sales service.

Precautions When Using Audio
Cassettes
Check that the tape in the cassette is sufficiently taught.
To prevent erasing a cassette that you wish to keep, remove the safety
tab on the upper edge of the cassette. To record a cassette, where the
tab has been broken, simply cover the opening with adhesive tape.
When you have finished playing a cassette, always put it back in its case.
Store your cassettes in a clean place, out of direct sunlight, where
they will not be exposed to high temperatures.
Avoid using 120-minute cassettes as they place unnecessary strain
on the tape mechanism.
