WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK OR
PRODUCT DAMAGE, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS APPARATUS TO
RAIN, MOISTURE, DRIPPING OR SPLASHING AND THAT NO

Use of batteries
•
•
•
•
Align the poles (+ and –) properly when inserting the batteries.
Do not mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries.
Do not recharge ordinary dry cell batteries.
Do not heat or disassemble the batteries. Do not allow them to contact
flame or water.
• If the unit is not going to be used for a long time or if the unit is to be
powered exclusively by AC power, remove the batteries and store
them in a cool, dark place.
• Do not keep together with metallic objects such as necklaces.
• Do not use rechargeable type batteries.
• Do not use batteries if the covering has been peeled off.
Mishandling of batteries can damage other items, cause damage to the
unit, and may cause a fire through short-circuiting or electrolyte leakage.
If electrolyte leaks from the batteries, consult your dealer.
Wash thoroughly with water if electrolyte comes in contact with any part
of your body.
Listening caution
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is
only the start of your musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider how
you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers.
This manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer
Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by
playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come through loud and
clear without annoying blaring or distortion—and, most importantly,
without affecting your sensitive hearing.
We recommend you to avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts
to higher volumes of sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be
loud and harmful to your hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE
your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly,
and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or
loss in the future. After all, we want you listening for a lifetime.

Outer row
Note
The included AC power supply cord is for use
with this unit only. Do not use it with other
equipment.
When to change the batteries
When the battery indicator begins flashing,
replace all 6 of the batteries. It is also a good
idea to replace all the batteries before recording.
Note
Before playing starts the battery indicator may
flash although the batteries are not drained. It
appears correctly once you start play.
When to change the batteries
The batteries last about a year.
Connect the unit to AC power before replacing
the batteries.
Before connecting or disconnecting the AC
power supply cord, press [TAPE/OFF] and stop
the tape to turn the unit off. The memory
batteries are worn out faster if the cord is
disconnected with the power still on.
Removing the batteries
Open the battery cover and insert your finger in
the hole on the bottom of the unit and push out.
(Remove the power batteries first.)
