Additional Information
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.
On power sources
• For AC operation, use the supplied AC
power cord; 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.
• Unplug the player from the wall outlet
when it is not to be used for an extended
period of time.
• For battery operation, use six size D (R20)
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.
• 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 lens 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.
If you have any questions or problems
concerning your player, please consult your
nearest Sony dealer.
continued
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.
25
Precautions (continued)
Notes on CDs
• Before playing, clean the CD with a
cleaning cloth. Wipe the CD from the
center out.
• Do not use solvents such as benzine,
thinner, commercially available cleaners
or anti-static spray intended for vinyl LPs.
• Do not expose the CD to direct sunlight or
heat sources such as hot air ducts, nor
leave it in a car parked in direct sunlight
as there can be a considerable rise in
temperature inside the car.
• Do not stick paper or sticker on the CD,
nor scratch the surface of the CD.
• After playing, store the CD in its case.
If there is a scratch, dirt or fingerprints on
the CD, it may cause tracking error.
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.

Maintenance
Cleaning the lens
If the lens becomes dirty, it may cause a
skipping of sound during CD operation.
Clean with a commercially available blower.
Cleaning the tape heads and
tape path
Wipe the heads, the pinch roller and the
capstan with a cleaning swab slightly
moistened with cleaning fluid or alcohol
after every 10 hours of operation for
optimum playback and recording quality. To
make the best possible recording, however,
we recommend that you clean all surfaces
over which tape travels before each
recording.
Record/playback head
Capstan
Erase head
Pinch roller
Lens
After cleaning, insert a tape when the areas
cleaned are completely dry.
28
Demagnetizing the tape heads
After 20 to 30 hours of use, enough residual
magnetism will have built up on the tape
heads to begin to cause loss of high
frequency sound and hiss. At this time, you
should demagnetize the heads and all metal
parts in the tape path with a commercially
available tape head demagnetizer.
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.

About “MP3”
What is the MP3?
MP3 (MPEG 1 Audio Layer-3) is a standard
technology and format for compressing a
sound sequence. The file is compressed to
about 1/10 of its original size. Sounds
outside the range of human hearing are
compressed while the sounds we can hear
are not compressed.
Playable “MP3” files on this
player
You can only play MP3 files recorded by
following requirements.
USABLE MEDIA
CD-Rs and CD-RWs
USABLE DISC FORMAT
You can use ISO 9660 Level 1 format discs,
not including the “expanded” format. In
some cases, MP3 files that are recorded in a
format other than ISO 9660 Level 1 may not
play normally or the file and folder names
may not be displayed correctly.
The major specifications of the ISO 9660
Level 1 format are as follows:
• Maximum directory steps: 8
• Usable characters for a file/folder name:
A - Z, 0 - 9, _ (underscore)
• Maximum number of characters for a file
name: 12 including quotation marks and a
3-character extension code
Notes
• The file names and folder names must be ISO
9660 level 1 compliant.
• When naming, be sure to add the file extension
“mp3” to the file name.
• If you put the extension “mp3” to a file other
than MP3, the player cannot recognize the file
properly and will generate random noise that
could damage your speakers.
• The file name does not correspond to the ID tag.
THE USABLE NUMBER OF
FOLDERS/FILES
• Maximum folder number: 255
• Maximum file number: 255
SETTINGS FOR COMPRESSION
SOFTWARE AND WRITING
SOFTWARE
• To compress a source for an MP3 file, we
recommend setting the transfer bit rate of
the compression software to “44.1 kHz”,
“128kbps”, and “Constant Bit Rate”.
• To record up to the maximum capacity, set
to the “halting of writing”.
• To record at one time up to the maximum
capacity on media that has nothing
recorded it, set to “Disc at Once”.
NOTES FOR SAVING FILES ON
THE MEDIA
When the disc is inserted, the player reads
all the files on that disc. If there are many
folders or non-MP3 files on the disc, it may
take a long time for play to begin or for the
next MP3 file to start play.
Do not save unnecessary folders or files
other than MP3 ones in the disc to be used
for MP3 listening.
We recommend that you do not save other
types files or unnecessary folders on a disc
that has MP3 files.
