Troubleshooting

Problems and remedies

Should you encounter a problem with your system, do the following:

1

Make sure the power cord and speaker cords are correctly and firmly connected.

2

Find your problem in the troubleshooting checklist below and take the indicated corrective action.

If the problem persists after doing all of the above, consult your nearest Sony dealer.

General

The display or button remains lighted or flashes even after the system was turned off.

• Press DISPLAY repeatedly until the clock display appears.

The clock indication does not show the correct time.

• A power interruption has occurred. Set the clock

(page 5) and timer setting (page 13) again.

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 clock” (page 5)

If you have set the timer, also redo “Waking up to music” (page 13).

There is no sound.

• Press VOL + repeatedly (or turn VOLUME on the unit clockwise).

• Make sure the headphones are not 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 (page 4).

Sound comes from one channel, or unbalanced left and right volume.

• Check the speaker connection and speaker placement.

Sound lacks bass.

• Check that the speaker’s + and – terminals are connected correctly.

There is severe hum or noise.

Additional Information

Precautions

On operating voltage

Before operating the system, check that the operating voltage of your system is identical with the voltage of your local power supply.

On safety

• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the unit 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 power cord (mains lead), pull it out by the plug. Never pull the cord itself.

• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the system, unplug the system and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.

• AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified service shop.

On placement

• 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

– Subject to vibrations

– Subject to direct sunlight.

• Use caution when placing the unit or speakers on surfaces that have been specially treated (with wax, oil, polish, etc.) as staining or discoloration of the surface may result.

On heat buildup

• Although the system heats up during operation, this is not a malfunction.

• Place the system in a location with adequate ventilation to prevent heat build-up in the system.

• If you continuously use this system at a high volume, the cabinet temperature of the top, side and bottom rises considerably. To avoid burning yourself, do not touch the cabinet.

• To prevent a malfunction, do not cover the ventilation hole.

In case color irregularity is observed on nearby a TV screen

With the magnetically shielded type of speaker system, the speakers can be installed near a TV set. However, color irregularity may still be observed on the TV screen depending on the type of your TV set.

If color irregularity is observed…

Turn off the TV set once, then turn it on after 15 to 30 minutes.

If color irregularity is observed again…

Place the speakers farther away from the TV set.

On operation

• 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 disc and leave the system turned on for about an hour until the moisture evaporates.

• When you move the system, take out any disc.

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.

Music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies

This product is designed to playback discs that conform to the Compact Disc (CD) standard. Recently, various music discs encoded with copyright protection technologies are marketed by some record companies.

Please be aware that among those discs, there are some that do not conform to the CD standard and may not be playable by this product.

Cleaning the cabinet

Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth slightly moistened with mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent such as thinner, benzene or alcohol.

To save a tape permanently

To prevent a tape from being accidentally recorded over, break off the cassette tab from side A or B as illustrated.

Break off the cassette tab

If you have any questions or problems concerning your system, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Notes on discs

• Before playing, clean the disc with a cleaning cloth.

Wipe the disc from the center out.

• Do not use solvents such as benzene, thinner, commercially available cleaners or anti-static spray intended for vinyl LPs.

• Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight or heat sources such as hot air ducts, nor leave it in a car parked in direct sunlight.

• Do not use discs encircled with a protection ring.

This may cause a malfunction to the system.

• When using discs that have glue or similar tacky substance on the label side of the disc or that used a special ink when the label was printed, there is a chance that the disc or label may become attached to parts inside this unit. When this occurs, it may not be possible to remove the disc, and may also cause this unit to malfunction. Be sure to check that the label side of the disc is not sticky before using.

The following types of disc should not be used:

– Rental or used discs with attached seals where the glue extends beyond the seal. The perimeter of the seal on the disc is tacky.

– Discs that have labels printed using a special ink that feels tacky when touched.

• Discs with non-standard shapes (e.g., heart, square, star) cannot be played on this unit. Attempting to do so may damage the unit. Do not use such discs.

If you later want to reuse the tape for recording, cover the broken tab with adhesive tape.

Before placing a cassette in the tape deck

Take up any slack in the tape. Otherwise, the tape may get entangled in the parts of the tape deck and become damaged.

When using a tape longer than 90 minutes

The tape is very elastic. Do not change the tape operations such as play, stop, and fast-winding frequently. The tape may get entangled in the tape deck.

Cleaning the tape heads

Clean the tape heads after every 10 hours of use.

Be sure to clean the tape heads before you start an important recording or after playing an old tape.

Use a separately sold dry-type or wet-type cleaning cassette. For details, refer to the instructions of the cleaning cassette.

Demagnetising the tape heads

Demagnetise the tape heads and the metal parts that have contact with the tape after every 20 to 30 hours of use with a separately sold demagnetising cassette. For details, refer to the instructions of the demagnetising cassette.
