19 Object and Liquid Entry - Never push objects of any kind into this
is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or cable system is
grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and
built-up static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/
NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper grounding of the
mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antennadischarge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements
for the grounding electrode.
product through openings as they may touch dangerous voltage points
or short-out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill
liquid of any kind on the product.
or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other
hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
21 Damage Requiring Service - Unplug this product from the wall outlet
and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
a) When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged,
b) If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the product,
c) If the product has been exposed to rain or water,
d) If the product does not operate normally by following the operating
instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions as an improper adjustment of other controls may
result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified
technician to restore the product to its normal operation,
e) If the product has been dropped or damaged in any way, and
f) When the product exhibits a distinct change in performance - this
indicates a need for service.
16 Lightning - For added protection for this product during a lightning
storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of
time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable
system. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and
power-line surges.
17 Power Lines - An outside antenna system should not be located in the
vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits,
or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an
outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from
touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be
fatal.
18 Overloading - Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral
convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.

WHY PURCHASE ENERGY STAR® LABELED PRODUCTS?
! CD Playback
Many Electrical /Electronic Products use energy both when they are on
and when they are off. Americans spend more than $3 billion a year on
energy consumed by home electronic products when they are not in
use. The new ENERGY STAR® labeled models will reduce that energy “leakage” by up to 75 percent. Ultimately, this will mean more than
$1 billion a year in energy savings for consumers.
The energy savings will help reduce the burning of fossil fuels and the
related carbon dioxide pollution that contributes to global warming.
If every American family replaced their electronic equipment with
ENERGY STAR® labeled models, it would reduce air pollution equivalent to eliminating more than two million cars.

By using ENERGY STAR® labeled products, you will save money on
your electric bills and use less energy.
That makes good economic sense and it’s good for our environment.

Maintenance
XL-HP505
! Cleaning the tape-handling parts
! Condensation
Sudden temperature changes, storage or operation in an extremely
humid environment may cause condensation inside the cabinet (CD
pickup, tape heads, etc.) or on the transmitter on the remote control.
Condensation can cause the unit to malfunction. If this happens,
leave the power on with no disc (or cassette) in the unit until normal
playback is possible (about 1 hour). Wipe off any condensation on
the transmitter with a soft cloth before operating the unit.
" Dirty heads, capstans or pinch rollers can cause poor sound and
tape jams. Clean these parts with a cotton swab moistened with
commercial head/pinch roller cleaner or isopropyl alcohol.
" When cleaning the heads, pinch rollers, etc., unplug the unit
which contains high voltages.

Remove all CDs from the unit. Your unit checks whether there are
any discs inside the unit when the tray is closed. "NO DISC"
appears if no disc is left. Then, set the unit to the power stand-by
mode. Carrying the unit with discs left inside can damage the unit.
! Care of compact discs
Compact discs are fairly resistant to damage, however mistracking
can occur due to an accumulation of dirt on the disc surface. Follow
the guidelines below for maximum enjoyment from your CD collection and player.
" Do not write on either side of the disc, particularly the non-label
side from which signals are read. Do not mark this surface.
" Keep your discs away from direct sunlight, heat, and excessive
moisture.
" Always hold the CDs by the edges. Fingerprints, dirt, or water on
the CDs can cause noise or mistracking. If a CD is dirty or does
not play properly, clean it with a soft, dry cloth, wiping straight out
from the center, along the radius.

" After long use, the deck's heads and capstans may become magnetized, causing poor sound. Demagnetize these parts once
every 30 hours of playing/recording time by using a commercial
tape head demagnetizer. Read the demagnetizer's instructions
carefully before use.
! Cleaning the CD pickup lens
In order to ensure proper operation of the CD player, preventative
maintenance (cleaning of the laser pickup lens) should be performed periodically. Lens cleaners are commercially available. Contact your local CD software dealer for options.
! Cleaning the cabinet
Periodically wipe the cabinet with a soft cloth and a diluted soap
solution, then with a dry cloth.
Caution:
" Do not use chemicals for cleaning (gasoline, paint thinner, etc.).
It may damage the cabinet finish.
" Do not apply oil to the inside of the unit. It may cause malfunctions.
