This symbol is intended to alert you to the presence
of dangerous voltage within the product.
CAUTION. TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC
SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE REAR COVER. NO

QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL.
CAUTION
This symbol is intended to alert you to the presence
of important instructions accompanying the product.
IMPORTANT NOTE
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse. The value of the
fuse is indicated on the pin face of the plug. If it requires replacing, a fuse approved to BS1362 of the same
rating must be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted if the cover is detachable. If a replacement fuse cover is
required, it must be of the same colour as the pin face of the plug.
Replacement covers are available from your dealer.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a
power point, you should obtain a suitable safety approved extension lead or consult your dealer for
assistance.
OK
OK
However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the
plug. Do not connect the plug to a mains socket, as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible
cord.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code: BLUE = NEUTRAL
BROWN = LIVE
As these colours may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug,
proceed as follows: The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or
BLACK. The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured
BROWN or RED.
WARNING: DO NOT CONNECT EITHER WIRE TO THE EARTH TERMINAL WHICH IS MARKED WITH
THE LETTER E OR BY THE EARTH SYMBOL, OR COLOURED GREEN OR GREEN AND YELLOW.

follow all the recommendations for CD-R above,
plus the comments below:
Your MP3 or WMA files should be ISO 9660 or

(degraded sound quality and in some cases,
inability of the player to read the files).
When naming your MP3 or WMA files do not
exceed 8 characters, and place ".mp3, .wma" as
the file extension.
General name format of: Title.mp3. or Title.wma.
When composing your title, make sure that you use
8 characters or less, have no spaces in the name,
and avoid the use of special characters including:
(.,/,\,=,+).
