Charging your radio
The
features a built-in 1850mAh rechargeable
Lithium battery to power your radio. Before operating
the radio for the first time, ensure that you fully charge
the radio.
1.
Place your radio on a flat surface. Carefully pull
back the protection cover and insert the adaptor
plug into the Charging socket marked ‘DC In’ on
the rear of your radio.
2.
Plug the adaptor into a standard mains socket outlet.
The radio will begin charging the built-in battery.
During this time the LED charging indicator next to
the charging socket will light brightly. Charging will
take up to 4 hours. The radio can only be charged
when the radio is switched off.
3.
Charging is completed when the battery is fully
charged. The LED charging indicator will then
change from the bright level to very much dimmer
level. It will remain at the dim level while the charger
is connected to the radio and to the mains. The
battery power icon will not be displayed on the
LCD when charging.
4.
Reduced power, distortion, ‘stuttering’ sounds or
the low battery power indicator are all signs that
the battery needs to be recharged.
5
The AC adaptor
should be
disconnected
from the mains
supply and the
radio when not
in use.
Note: Never use, charge or operate the radio in rainy or
moist conditions to prevent moisture entering the radio.
IMPORTANT: The mains adaptor is used as the means
of connecting the radio to the mains supply. The mains
socket used for the radio must remain accessible
during normal use. In order to disconnect the radio
from the mains completely, the mains adaptor should
be removed from the mains socket outlet completely.
Note: The mains adaptor which is supplied with your
radio is a high efficiency type, designed to minimise
energy consumption, whether the radio is playing,
charging its battery or switched off. Do not use any
other mains adaptor in place of the unit supplied.
Such use will invalidate your guarantee.

Keylock function
The Keylock function is used to prevent
unintentional operation of your radio.
1.
When your radio is playing, press and hold the
Select / Lock button for several seconds. ‘Keys
Locked’ will show on the display.
2.
This will prevent accidental operation when your
radio is being carried in a bag, pocket or when
using the belt clip. If a button is accidentally
pressed then ‘Keys Locked’ will show on the
display.
3.
To disable the key lock function, press and hold
the Select / Lock button again for several seconds
until ‘Keys Unlocked’ is shown on the display.

Bluetooth mode
The Bluetooth mode on your radio allows you to
play audio, play sound from video files and stream
music from Bluetooth capable devices such as your
moblie phone, computer, tablet etc. through your
radio's loudspeaker.
●
When a Bluetooth enabled device such as your
radio is in a 'discoverable' state other
Bluetooth devices can detect, pair with or connect
to it.
●
'Bluetooth pairing' occurs when two Bluetooth
enabled devices agree to establish a connection
and communicate with each other.
●
Your radio will display ‘Bluetooth discoverable’
on the display when it is discoverable or when
it is trying to connect to a previously paired
Bluetooth device. When a device is paired
with and connects to your radio, the Bluetooth
indicator ‘BT’ will remain on the display.
45
Bluetooth connectivity performance may vary
depending on the connected Bluetooth devices.
Please refer to the Bluetooth capabilities of your device
before connecting to your radio. All features may not
be supported on some paired Bluetooth devices.
A Bluetooth connection can provide a link for audio
up to a distance of approximately ten metres.
When pairing two Bluetooth enabled devices, for
convenience, we recommend they should be no
more than 2 to 3 metres apart.The presence of other
functioning Bluetooth devices during connection may
lead to operational difficulties.
Bluetooth is a short-range radio communication
system and generally Bluetooth devices can
communicate with each other clearly within a regular
sized room or office. The reliability of a Bluetooth
connection between different rooms will greatly
depend upon the construction of the building.
46
Connecting Bluetooth devices
1.
Ensure that the Bluetooth capability on your
phone, tablet or PC is enabled. You may need to
refer to the user documentation for your device,
since the method will vary with each device.
2.
Press and release the On / Off button to switch
on the radio.
3.
Press and release the Mode button on your
radio until the Bluetooth mode is selected. Your
radio will show that it is 'discoverable' by showing
'Bluetooth discoverable...' on the display.
4.
Using the Bluetooth settings of your phone, tablet
or PC direct it to search for ‘discoverable’ devices.
After a few seconds, you should see a device
named ‘Play BT’. Just occasionally it may take
longer for the radio to be found by your device.

5.
Select 'Play BT' to cause your phone, tablet
or PC to pair with your radio and to establish a
connection.
6.
Once the connection is established a message
will be displayed briefly confirming connection and
the name of the connected device. The Bluetooth
indicator ‘BT’ will remain on the display whilst
Bluetooth is connected.
You can now begin playing music from your
smart-phone, tablet, etc.
Some Bluetooth devices may require a 'Passkey'
(an authentication key) in order to establish a link
between devices. A passkey is similar to a password,
although you only need to use the passkey once to
establish a link. If your device asks for a passkey to
be able to pair with your radio then enter a code of
0000 (four zeroes).

Playing audio files in Bluetooth mode
When you have successfully connected your radio
with your chosen Bluetooth device you can start to
play your music using the controls on the device.
1.
Once playing has started adjust the volume to
the required setting using the Volume buttons
on your radio or the connected Bluetooth device.
2.
The volume of your radio in Bluetooth mode
is affected by the volumes setting on the radio
and also on the connected Bluetooth device. If
you adjust the volume on the radio but you find
that the volume from the radio is not sufficient, it
may be that the volume setting of the connected
device needs to be increased.
3.
The audio player in your phone, tablet or PC
may be able to respond to the Play/Pause, Next
track and Previous track buttons on the radio.
Note: Not all player applications or devices may
respond to all of these buttons.
4.
If your connected device is able to provide
information from the track being played, you
may press and release the Select/Info button to
display the Title, Album, Artist, Format and date
details on the display.

Connecting and disconnecting a
Bluetooth device
You can only have one Bluetooth device connected
to the radio at any one time although it may be paired
with several devices. Once you have a Bluetooth
enabled device connected to your radio it cannot be
interrupted by another Bluetooth device unless you
choose to break the connection.
1.
To connect to a new device, press and hold the
Menu button to access the menu options.
2.
Press and release the Tuning Up or Down
buttons until the display shows ‘Discoverable’.
3.
Press the Select button. The radio will then be
discoverable by other devices. The radio will
remain discoverable while the display shows
‘Bluetooth discoverable’.
4. You may then pair the radio with the new device
using its Bluetooth settings (the radio will be
listed on the device as ‘Play BT’). The name of
the newly connected device will be briefly shown
on the radio's display. You may then play music
from the new device through the radio.

Bluetooth information
Bluetooth communication range may be substantially
reduced if the signal passes through a solid object.
Human bodies, brick and concrete walls, heavy
furniture or bookcases will all reduce the operational
range of your Bluetooth devices to a greater or lesser
extent. Glass, dry-wall or wood paneled walls and
office partitions may have a less severe but noticeable
effect. Metal pipes, foil-lined plasterboard, metal
window frames and domestic wiring can also have
an effect. You should position your Bluetooth devices
closer to each other if you observe communication
difficulties.
WiFi networks and cordless phones generally use
similar radio frequencies to Bluetooth and may
interfere with one another. If any interference is
noticed, then try relocating the radio or one of the
other devices.
The Bluetooth capabilities of your radio enable it to
receive audio from many Bluetooth capable devices
including mobile phones, personal computers and
57
tablets. Only one Bluetooth device can be connected
to your radio at a time. It supports the following
Bluetooth profiles and functionality.
●
Your radio supports A2DP (Advanced Audio
Distribution Profile) which is a stereo audio
connection that streams stereo music from PCs,
mobile phones etc. SBC and AAC audio codecs
are supported.
●
Your radio supports AVRCP (Audio Video Remote
Control Profile) which allows your radio to control
music playback from the connected device.
Note: Some mobile phones may temporarily
disconnect from your radio when you make or
receive calls. Some devices may temporarily mute
their Bluetooth audio streaming when they receive
text messages, emails or for other reasons unrelated
to audio streaming. Such behaviour is a function of
the connected device and does not indicate a fault
with your radio.
58
Automatically updating the clock
Your radio will usually set the clock time using the
DAB time signal. You may specify that the radio
