On placement
• Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up the system.
• Do not place the system in an inclined position.
• Do not place the system in locations where it is;
– Extremely hot or cold
– Dusty or dirty
– Very humid
– Vibrating
– Subject to direct sunlight.
If you have any questions or problems concerning
your stereo system, please consult your nearest Sony
dealer.
Notes on CDs
• Before playing, clean the CD with a cleaning cloth.
Wipe the CD from the center out.
• Do not use solvents.
• Do not expose the CD to direct sunlight or heat
sources.
• Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart, square,
star) cannot be played on this system. Attempting to
do so may damage the system. Do not use such
discs.
Additional Information
• The system is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the system itself has been turned off.
• Unplug the system from the wall outlet (mains) if it
is not to be used for an extended period of time. To
disconnect the cord (mains lead), pull it out by the
plug. Never pull the cord itself.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the
component, unplug the stereo system and have the
component checked by qualified personnel before
operating it any further.
• The AC power cord must be changed only at a
qualified service shop.
• If the system 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. Should this occur, the system will not
operate properly. Remove the CD and leave the
system turned on for about an hour until the
moisture evaporates.
• When you move the system, take out any discs.
Note on CD-R/CD-RW playback
Discs recorded on CD-R/CD-RW drives may not be
played back because of scratches, dirt., recording
condition or the drive’s characteristics. Besides, the
discs, which are not yet finalized at the end of
recording cannot be played back.
Cleaning the cabinet
Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with mild
detergent solution.
On heat buildup
To save a tape permanently
– Although the system heats up during operation, this
is not malfunction.
– Place the system in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the system.
To prevent a tape from being accidentally recorded
over, break off the cassette tab from side A or B as
illustrated.
If you continuously use this system at a large volume,
the cabinet temperature of the top, side and bottom
rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not
touch the cabinet.
Break off the
cassette tab of
side A
To prevent a malfunction, do not cover the ventilation
hole for the cooling fan.
If you later want to reuse the tape for recording, cover
the broken tab with adhesive tape.

Precautions (continued)
Troubleshooting
Before placing a cassette in the tape
deck
If you have any problem using this system, use
the following check list.
Take up any slack in the tape. Otherwise the tape may
get entangled in the parts of the tape deck and become
damaged.
First, check that the power cord is connected
firmly and the speakers are connected correctly
and firmly.
When using a tape longer than 90
minutes
Should any problem persist, consult your
nearest Sony dealer.
The tape is very elastic. Do not change the tape
operations such as play, stop, and fast-winding (etc.)
frequently. The tape may get entangled in the tape
deck.
General
Cleaning the tape heads
Clean the tape heads after every 10 hours of use.
Make sure to clean the tape heads before you start an
important recording or after playing an old tape. Use
separately sold dry-type or wet-type cleaning cassette.
For details, refer to the instructions of the cleaning
cassette.
Demagnetizing the tape heads
Demagnetize the tape heads and the metal parts that
have contact with the tape every 20 to 30 hours of use
with a separately sold demagnetizing cassette. For
details, refer to the instructions of the demagnetizing
cassette.
The clock setting/radio presetting/timer is
canceled.
• The power cord is disconnected or a power
failure occurs longer than half a day.
Redo the following:
— “Setting the time” on page 7
— “Presetting radio stations” on page 10
If you have set the timer, also redo “Timerrecoding radio programs” on page 15 and
“Waking up to music” on page 17.
There is no sound.
• Turn VOLUME clockwise and hold.
• The headphones are connected.
• Insert only the stripped portion of the speaker
cord into the SPEAKER terminal. Inserting the
vinyl portion of the speaker cord will obstruct the
speaker connections.
There is severe hum or noise.
• A TV or VCR is placed too close to the stereo
system. Move the stereo system away from the
TV or VCR.
The clock indication does not show the correct
time.
• A power interruption occurred. Set the clock and
timer settings again.
The timer does not function.
• Set the clock correctly.
• You cannot activate the Timer-recording and
Daily Timer at the same time.
• When you used the Sleep Timer, Daily Timer
and Timer-recording will not turn on the system
until the Sleep Timer turns it off.
20
The remote does not function.
• There is an obstacle between the remote and the
system.
• The remote is not pointing in the direction of the
system’s sensor.
• The batteries have run down. Replace the
batteries.
The color irregularity on a TV screen persists.
• Turn off the TV set once, then turn it on after 15
to 30 minutes. If the color irregularity still
persists, place the speakers farther away from the
TV set.
Speakers
Sound comes from one channel or unbalanced
left and right volume.
Sound lacks bass.
• Check that the speaker’s + and – terminals are
connected correctly.

• The tab has been removed from the cassette.
• The tape has reeled to the end.
The tape does not record nor play or there is a
decrease in sound level.
• The heads are dirty. Clean them (see “Cleaning
the tape heads” on page 20).
• The record/playback heads are magnetized.
Demagnetize them (see “Demagnetizing the tape
heads” on page 20).
The tape does not erase completely.
• The record/playback heads are magnetized.
Demagnetize them (see “Demagnetizing the tape
heads” on page 20).
There is excessive wow or flutter, or the sound
drops out.
Additional Information
• Check the speaker connection and speaker
placement.
Tape Deck
• The capstans or pinch rollers are dirty. Clean
them (see “Cleaning the tape heads” on page 20).
Noise increases or the high frequencies are
erased.
• The record/playback heads are magnetized.
Demagnetize them (see “Demagnetizing the tape
heads” on page 20).
