Note on AM Channel Step The AM channel step differs depending on area. See “Changing AM Channel Step”. Precautions • Operate the unit only on 6 V DC. For battery operation, use 4 Size C (R14) batteries. For AC operation, use only the recommended AC power adaptor. • The unit is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to a wall outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned off. • The nameplate indicating operating voltage, etc. is located on the bottom exterior. • Avoid exposure to temperature extremes, direct sunlight, moisture, sand, dust or mechanical shock. Never leave in a car parked under the sun. • In vehicles or buildings, radio reception may be difficult or subject to interference. Try listening near a window. • Since a strong magnet is used for the speaker, keep away personal credit cards using magnetic coding or spring-wound watches from the unit to prevent possible damage from the magnet. • When the batteries (not supplied) become weak, the sound becomes weak and distorted and “E” flashes. Replace the batteries with new ones. When the batteries are completely exhausted, the unit and the timer will turn off and “E” is displayed. • When the batteries become weak while playing a CD, “E” will flash in the display and CD playback will stop. However, the radio will still function after turning on the unit again until the batteries are completely exhausted. • Before replacing the batteries, make sure that the unit is turned off. • After replacing the batteries, press RADIO ON BAND/CD u and “E” will disappear. • Replace the batteries within 5 minutes. Otherwise, the memories for the clock and the preset stations will be erased and “AM 12:00” will flash in the display. • When operating the unit on batteries, remove the AC power adaptor from the DC IN jack. The unit cannot be operated on batteries when the AC power adaptor is connected to the DC IN jack. • When you install/replace the batteries, do not push hard on the unit as it may damage the display panel or cause a malfunction. Notes on batteries • Do not charge dry batteries. • Do not carry dry batteries together with coins or other metallic objects. It can generate heat if the positive and negative terminals of the batteries accidentally come into contact with metallic objects. • When you are not going to use the unit for a long time, remove the batteries to avoid damage from battery leakage and corrosion. • Do not use different types of batteries at the same time. • When you replace the batteries, replace all with new ones. Using the AC power adaptor • When operating the unit with an external power source, do not remove the batteries. These batteries serve to backup the clock and memory settings. Since the batteries discharge in this case as well, we recommend changing them about once a year. • When you are not going to use the unit for a long time, remove the batteries to avoid damage from battery leakage. In that case, current time and preset tuning settings will be reset. Set them again when you next use the unit.
