To assure good sound quallty for recording and playback, be sure
to clean the heads after approximately every 10 hours of use.
1. Switch the power of this unit to standby mode.
2. Press the stop/eject button to open the cassette holder.
3. Clean the heads, pinch roller and the capstan shaft of each

In order to maintain good sound quallty during recording and
playback, it is recommended that the heads should be
demagnetized if distortion or poor sound quality persist after
cleaning the heads.
If the heads become magnetized, they could create nolse In
recordings, loss of high-frequency response, or erasure of
valuable recordings. Several types of head demagnetizers are
available and may be purchased at local electronics supply
stores. Follow the instructions that are supplied with the device.
* Do not bring any type of metal objects or toois such as

Suggestions for Safety
M Use a standard AC wall outlet
1. Use from an AC power source of high voltage, such as for
an air conditioner, is very dangerous.
There Is the possibility that a fire might be caused by making
such a connection.
2. A DC power source cannot be used.
Be sure to check the power source carefully. especiaily on a
ship or other place where DC is used.
Ml Grasp the plug when disconnecting the power
supply cord
1. Wat hands are dangerous.
A dangerous electric shock may result if the plug is touched
by wet hands.
2. Never place heavy items on top of the power supply cord,
and never force 11 to bend sharply.
IN Place the unit where it will be well ventilated
Place this unit at least 10 cm (4") away from wal! surfaces, etc.
El Avold places such as the following:
In direct sunlight or in other places where the temperature Is
In places where there is excessive vibration or humidity.
Such conditions might damage tha cabine! and/or other compo.

M Take particular care If chiidren are present
Never permit children to put anything. especially metal inside
this unit. A serious electric shock or malfunction could occur if
articles such as coins, needies, screwdrivers, etc. are inserted

E IT water ls spilled on the unit
Be extremely caretut if water is spilled on the unit, because a fire
or serious electric shock might occur. Immediately disconnect
the power cord plug, and consult with your dealer.
E Avold spray-type insecticides
Insecticides might cause cracks or “cloudiness” in the cabinet
and plastic parts of this unit. The gas used in such sprays might,
moreover, be ignited suddenty.
ll Never use alcohol or paint thinner
These and simitar chemicals should never be used, because they
might cause flaking or cloudiness of the cabine! finish
