Additional Information
Precautions
On safety
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 mains as long as it is connected to
the mains, even if the player itself has
been turned off.
• For battery operation, use four 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.
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.
12
Additional Information
• 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 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.
Notes on cassettes

or B to prevent accidental recording.
If you want to reuse the tape for
recording, cover the broken tab with
adhesive tape.
Side A

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.

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