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.
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 rear.
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 springwound 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.

Additional Information
Notes on CDs

you want to reuse the tape for
recording, cover the broken tab with
adhesive tape.
Side A
• 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.
Tab for side B
Tab for side A
• The use of a cassette with more than
90 minutes of play time is not
recommended except for long,
continuous recording or playback.
• 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.

Symptom

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 rollers and
the capstans 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.

After cleaning, insert a tape when the
areas cleaned are completely dry.

Additional Information
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.
