contains live components, which
cause electric shock.
If you will not be using the remote control for a long time,
remove the batteries to prevent corrosion.
Although your system is very hard-wearing, it should not be
used in an excessively dusty environment or subjected to
shocks or extreme heat (close to heating appliances or in
direct sunlight, etc.).
If the unit emits an unpleasant odor when in use, unplug it
from the main supply and contact the after-sales service.

Precautions When Using Audio
Cassettes
Check that the tape in the cassette is sufficiently taught.
To prevent erasing a cassette that you wish to keep, remove the
safety tab on the upper edge of the cassette. To record a cassette,
where the tab has been broken, simply cover the opening with
adhesive tape.
When you have finished playing a cassette, always put it back in its
case.
Store your cassettes in a clean place, out of direct sunlight, where
they will not be exposed to high temperatures.
Avoid using 120-minute cassettes as they place unnecessary strain
on the tape mechanism.
