• Before connecting and disconnecting the
external power source plug, be sure to turn off
the radio/CD. Otherwise, “E” may be
displayed. When this occurs, turn on the
radio/CD so that “E” disappears.
• When the AC power adaptor (not supplied) is
not to be used for a long period of time, unplug
it both from the DC IN 6 V jack and from the
wall outlet.
• Use only the recommended AC power adaptor.
Using any other AC power adaptor may cause
damage to the unit.
• When the cover of the DC IN 6 V jack is open
(to use the AC power adaptor), the jack area is
not water-resistant. When the AC power
adaptor is not connected to the DC IN 6 V jack,
be sure to close the cover of the DC IN 6 V jack.
• For details of the AC power adaptor (not
supplied), see “Specifications.”

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.
