1. IMPORTANT NOTES

Your hearing is very important to you and to us so please take care when operation this equipment. The following guidelines are provided for your information.

ESTABLISH A SAFE SOUND LEVEL

• Over time your hearing will adapt to continuous loud sounds and will give the impression that the volume has in fact been reduced. What seems normal to you may in fact be harmful. To guard against this BEFORE YOUR HEARING ADAPTS set the volume at a low level

• Slowly increase the level until you can hear comfortably and clearly and without distortion.

• Damage to your hearing is accumulative and is irreversible.

• Any ringing or discomfort in the ears indicates that the volume is too loud.

• Remember listening for prolonged period of time at high volume levels will harm you hearing.

Once you have established a comfortable listening level, DO NOT INCREASE THE

SOUND LEVEL FURTHER.

The following list of typical sound levels may assist you in recognising just how loud you have set the volume level.

DECIBEL

Level dB Example

30 dB Quiet library, soft whisper.

40 Living room, fridge freezer bedroom away from traffic.

50 Normal conversation, quiet office, light traffic.

60 Electric sewing machine,

70 Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, noisy restaurant

THE FOLLOWING NOISE CAN BE HARMFUL UNDER CONSTANT EXPOSURE

80dB Average city traffic, alarm clock buzzer at 1 Metre, food mixer.

90 Motorcycle, heavy goods vehicle, petrol lawn mower.

100 Pneumatic drill, chain saw, garbage truck, discotec/night-club.

120 Rock band concert, thunderclap, fast train passing by.

140 THRESHOLD OF PAIN Gunshot, jet plane taking off.

180 Rocket Launching pad.

2. POWER SOURCES

AC MAINS

Insert the plug of AC power cord into wall outlet and the connector into AC Socket Press the Power On/Off Button to turn on the unit.

Battery power will be disconnected automatically.

BATTERY OPERATION

Remove the Battery Compartment Cover and insert 8 pcs UM-1 (Size D) batteries, replace the cover.

NOTE: ENSURE BATTERIES ARE

CORRECTLY INSTALLED

OBSERVING THE POLARITY AS

SHOWN.

NOTE: Old batteries may swell and leak. To avoid damage to your portable stereo, remove the batteries when the unit is to be stored for long periods of time, of if the batteries become exhausted (the Power Indicator will be faded if the batteries are exhausted). And if radio sound is low or distorted, your batteries probably need replacing.

3. PLAYER MAINTENANCE

CLEANING THE TAPE HEADS

Clean the heads frequently to remove dust and tape residue. Dirt on the heads will impair the sound quality of both recording and playback.

The simple method is to use a head-cleaning cassette, which is available at most audio stores. Follow the instructions supplied with the cleaning cassette.

4

4. DISC CLEANING

Cleaning the Disc

1. To handle a disc use only one of the two manners illustrated.

Note Do not touch the rainbow - coloured

Side.

2. To wipe a disc, use only a soft cloth. Do not use benzene or thinner which will damage the disc. The disc should always be wiped in a straight line from the centre to the edge. It should never be wiped in a circular motion.

3. Never place the disc on other equipment or near any heat source. Avoid positions where the disc would be subjected to direct sunlight for long periods.

Maintenance and care

1. Electronic products should never be subjected to extreme temperatures nor high humidity to ensure good performance and a long life-time. The portable stereo should not be placed in bathing areas, or around stoves and radiators, etc. Always leave sufficient space around the unit for ventilation.

2. If necessary, only clean the cabinet of the unit with a soft dampened piece of cloth

(make sure the AC power cord is unplugged from the Outlet) Never use a polish or a strong detergent for cleaning since this can damage the finish of the cabinet.

BATTERY INSTALLATION

Insert (CR 2025) batteries into the battery compartment of the remote controller and close the cover.

BATTERY REPLACEMENT

When the batteries become too weak, the operating distance of the remote controller is greatly reduced and you will need to replace the batteries.

NOTES:

• If the remote control is not to be used for a long time, remove the batteries to prevent possible damage through leaking batteries.

USING THE REMOTE CONTROLLER CORRECTLY

• Point the remote controller at the Remote Sensor.

• The functions of the buttons on the remote control are the same as the corresponding controls on the main unit.

• When there is a strong ambient light source, the performance of the infrared Remote Sensor may be degraded, causing unreliable operation.

• The maximum effective distance for remote control operation is about 15 feet.

Making A Tape Recording

You can record directly from the radio or the CD player to the built in stereo cassette recorder. No separate microphones or external connections are required. In addition, the cassette recorder has an Automatic Recording Volume Level Control circuit that automatically controls the recording volume level to prevent distortion. You may adjust the volume control during recording, or turn the volume ‘off’ completely without affecting the recording.

1. Select the source you wish to record, Radio or CD Player, and follow the operating instructions for that source.

2. Open the CD/Cassette door.

3. Insert a good quality blank cassette tape into the slots on the inside of the cassette CD with the full reel on the left side. Close the cassette door.

14

4. Press the Cassette Record button. The Cassette Play button will also engage and recording will begin.

If you wish to stop the tape temporarily to avoid recording certain material, press the

Cassette Pause button. Press again to resume recording.

5. When the recording has finished press the Stop button to stop the tape.

Cassette Tape Recommendations

Standard tape lengths have 15(C-30) and 30(C-60) minutes of recording time on each side. Longer length tapes of 45 (C-90) and 60 (C-120) minutes of recording time on each side are available, but because longer tapes in the same size package necessitate the use of thinner materials, the chance for malfunction is much greater. Longer length tapes are not recommended. Use only high quality tapes. If a problem develops, check the unit first with another cassette to determine if

Fig.1

the problem is with the cassette, and not the unit.If there is any slack in the tape in the cassette, it should be removed before inserting the cassette. Place a pencil in one of the holes and rotate until all slack is taken up.

Fig.2

15

Safeguard Against Accidental Erasure

When a new recording is made, any program material previously recorded is automatically erased and only the new recording remains. To safeguard valuable recordings from being erased accidentally, the cassette and the deck are equipped with a tab.

On the back of the cassette there is an erase prevention tab on each side. To prevent accidental erasing, break out these tabs with a screwdriver. If only one side of the tape is to be protected, break out the tab on the left side with the side to be protected facing you. To record on a tape in which the tab has been broken, place a piece of cellophane tape over that area.

16

Cleaning The Unit

• To prevent fire or shock hazard, disconnect your unit from the AC power source when cleaning.

• If the cabinet becomes dusty wipe it with a soft dry dust cloth. Do not use any wax or polish sprays on the cabinet.

• If the cabinet becomes dirty or smudged with fingerprints it may be cleaned with a soft cloth slightly dampened with a mild soap and water solution. Never use abrasive cloths or polishes as these will mark the finish of your unit.

Caution:

Never allow any water or other liquids to get inside the unit while cleaning.
