• 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.
• 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 voltage selector is located on the
rear of the player .
• 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 eight 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 rear.
• 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 anything within 10 mm of
the side of the cabinet. The ventilation
holes must be unobstructed for the
player to operate properly and to
prolong the life of its components.
• 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.
• 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 questions or problems
concerning your player, please consult
your nearest Sony dealer.
