Precautions
On safety
• As the laser beam used in the CD player
section is harmful to the eyes, do not
attempt to disassemble the casing. Refer
servicing to qualified personnel only.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into
the player, unplug the player, and have it
checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
• Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g.,
heart, square, star) cannot be played on
this player. Attempting to do so may
damage the player. Do not use such discs.
Cleaning the cabinet
• Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with
a soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild
detergent solution. Do not use any type of
abrasive pad, scouring powder, or solvent,
such as alcohol or benzine.
Notes on cassettes
• Break off the cassette tab from side A or B
to prevent accidental recording. If you
want to reuse the tape for recording, cover
the broken tab with adhesive tape.
On placement
• Do not leave the player in a location near
heat sources, or in a place subject to direct
sunlight, excessive dust or mechanical
shock.
• Do not place the player on an inclined or
unstable place.
• Do not place anything within 10 mm of
the side of the cabinet. The ventilation
holes must be unobstructed for the player
to operate properly and prolong the life of
its components.
• If the player is left in a car parked in the
sun, be sure to choose a location in the car
where the player will not be subjected to
the direct rays of the sun.
• Since a strong magnet is used for the
speakers, keep personal credit cards using
magnetic coding or spring-wound watches
away from the player to prevent possible
damage from the magnet.
On operation
• If the player is brought directly from a
cold to a warm location, or is placed in a
very damp room, moisture may condense
on the lenses inside the CD player section.
Should this occur, the player will not
operate properly. In this case, remove the
CD and wait about an hour for the
moisture to evaporate.
• If the player has not been used for a long
time, set it in the playback mode to warm
it up for a few minutes before inserting a
cassette.
General
The power does not come on.
Side A
Tab for side A
Tab for side B
• The use of a cassette with more than 90
minutes of play time is not recommended
except for long, continuous recording or
playback.
Notes on CDs
• Before playing, clean the CD with a
cleaning cloth. Wipe the CD from the
center out.
On power sources
• For AC operation, check that the player’s
operating voltage is identical with your
local power supply (see “Specifications”)
and use the supplied mains lead; do not
use any other type.
• The player is not disconnected from the
AC power source (mains) as long as it is
connected to the wall outlet, even if the
player itself has been turned off.
• For battery operation, use six R20 (size D)
batteries.
• When the batteries are not to be used,
remove them to avoid damage that can be
caused by battery leakage or corrosion.
• The nameplate indicating operating
voltage, power consumption, etc. is
located at the bottom.
Troubleshooting
• Make sure the batteries are inserted correctly.
• Replace all the batteries with new ones if they
are weak.
• You cannot turn on the player with the remote
when you operate the player on batteries.
The power is not on, and “bAttErY”
and “Error” are displayed alternately.
• Make sure the batteries are inserted correctly.
• Replace all the batteries with new ones if they
are weak.
There is no audio.
• Adjust the volume.
• Unplug the headphones when listening
through speakers.
Tape Player
The tape does not move when you
press an operation button.
• Close the cassette compartment securely.
The REC z button does not function
or the tape does not play or record.
• Make sure the safety tab on the cassette is in
place.
Poor or distorted playback, recording
or erasing quality.
• Clean the heads, pinch roller and capstan with
a cleaning swab slightly moistened with
cleaning fluid or alcohol.
• Replace all the batteries with new ones if they
are weak.
• TYPE II (high position) or TYPE IV (metal)
tape is being used. Use TYPE I (normal) tape
only.
• Demagnetize the heads using a commercially
available tape head demagnetizer.
Noise is heard.
• Someone is using a portable telephone or
other equipment that emits radio waves near
the player. tMove the portable telephone,
etc., away from the player.

About CD-Rs/CD-RWs
This player can play CD-Rs/CD-RWs
recorded in the CD-DA format*, but
playback capability may vary depending on
the quality of the disc and the condition of
the recording device.
* CD-DA is the abbreviation for Compact
Disc Digital Audio. It is a recording
standard used for Audio CDs.
The sound drops out.
• Reduce the volume.
• Clean the CD, or replace it if the CD is badly
damaged.
• Place the player in a location free from
vibration.
• Clean the lens with a commercially available
blower.
• The sound may drop out or noise may be
heard when using poor quality CD-Rs/CDRWs or if there is a problem with the
recording device or application software.
Radio
Reception is poor.
• Reorient the aerial to improve FM reception.
Music discs encoded with copyright
protection technologies
This product is designed to play back discs
that conform to the Compact Disc (CD)
standard. Recently, various music discs
encoded with copyright protection
technologies are marketed by some record
companies. Please be aware that among
those discs, there are some that do not
conform to the CD standard and may not be
playable by this product.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your player, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer.
The audio is weak or has poor quality.
• Replace all the batteries with new ones if they
are weak.
• Move the player away from the TV.
The picture of your TV becomes
unstable.
• If you are listening to an FM programme near
the TV with an indoor aerial, move the player
away from the TV.
