Clean heads after every 25 hours of use.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to remove batteries when storing the set for more than 30 days. Leaky
batteries can badly damage the stereo. Always return tape operation buttons to their off
position before storing. This will relieve pressure on certain parts in the tape recorder that
might deform after long periods of time. Dispose of leaky, dead or weak batteries properly.
If you know what each button does, it’s easy to figure out how to operate the tape deck.
Antennas
The AM antenna is built in, so adjusting the position of the unit may help AM reception.

deck records over whatever is on a tape. To
protect a tape from accidental erasure, break
off one or both plastic tabs (one for each tape
side) on the top of the cassette tape. If you
decide later to record on the tape, seal the
hole with a piece of cellophane tape.
