Care & Maintenace
Prevent accidental erasure
Whenever you make a recording, any previous recording
on the tape is automatically erased.When you have a
recording you want to keep permanently, snap out the rear
left tab of the side you want to save as shown in the
illustration below.
When a cassette with the tab snapped out is inserted into
the tape unit, accidental erasure is prevented by a lever in
the mechanism that keeps the RECORD button from
depressing.Cellophane tape can be place over the original
recording.Similarly, you can record over purchased
pre-recorded cassettes.
PLEASE NOTE: Your unit is equipped with a cassette
sensing mechanism prevents the RECORD button from
being depressed when a cassette is not in the unit.
Cleaning the heads
Iron oxide particles from the magnetic tape can build up on the parts
that come in contact with the tape.These deposits can cause
incomplete erasure,muffled playback sound,and might prevent
automatic stop.To clean a cassette tape,open the compartment
door,push the PLAY button and gently and gently clean the
heads,capstan,and pinch wheel with a head cleaner.
Always unplug the power cord before cleaning,and allow 30
minutes drying time when using a liquid cleaner.
Clean heads after every 25 hours of use.
-Demagnetize the head occasionally with a head
demagnetizing cassette(available from many audio
equipment stores).
-Never use any metal objects on or near the tape heads.
Do not allow any cleaning material to fall into the tape
Tape care
-Don’t expose tapes to sunlight or store in hot places. High
temperatures may warp the shell or damage the tape
-Keep cassettes in their boxes when not in use.
-Cassette tapes can be erased by magnetic fields produced
by magnets,electric motors,electrical transformers,and
other devices. Keep tapes away from magnets and
magnetic fields.
A little bit of slack in your tapes can cause scratches on the
tape,or worse yet,the tape could break.If you notice some
slack in the tape,use a pencil to tighten it up before you
insert it.
