BATTERY OPERATION
Remove the Battery Door.
Following the polarity diagram as shown in the battery compartment insert 8 x ‘LR14’ (‘C')
batteries then replace the Battery Door.
IMPORTANT : Be sure that the batteries are installed correctly. Wrong polarity may damage the unit.
Use only the size and type of batteries specified.
For better performance and longer operating time, we recommend the use of alkaline-type
batteries.
Do not mix old and new batteries.
Do not mix alkaline, standard (carbon-zinc) or rechargeable (nickel-cadmium) batteries.
If the unit is not to be used for an extended period of time, remove the batteries. Old or leaking batteries can cause damage to the unit and may void the warranty.
Do not try to recharge batteries not intended to be recharged; they can overheat and rupture.
(Follow battery manufacturer’s directions).
Do not dispose of batteries in fire, batteries may leak or explode.
B.
AC OPERATION
When the AC power cord (included) is connected to the AC INPUT Socket (# 17) at the back of the unit and the other end to a wall outlet with AC 120V ~ 60Hz power supply, the unit will
disconnect the batteries automatically, and operate from AC power instead.
Note: plug is used as the disconnect device. The disconnect device shall remain readily operable.
In order to disconnect the apparatus from the mains completely, the mains plug should be
disconnected from the mains socket outlet completely
IMPORTANT :
This unit has a polarized AC plug with one wide blade and one narrow blade. This plug will only
fit into a matching polarized AC outlet. This is a safety feature to reduce the possibility of electric
shock. If this plug will not fit in your AC outlet, you probably have an outdated non-polarized
outlet. You should have your out-dated outlet changed by a qualified, licensed electrician. Do
not file the wide blade on the plug, or use an adaptor to make the plug fit onto your outlet. This
defeats the safety feature and could expose you to electric shock.

CASSETTE TAPE OPERATING TIPS
1.High quality tapes are recommended to obtain maximum quality reproduction from recordings.
2.Tapes with playing time of 120 minutes (C-120) are not recommended because they contain
thinner and longer tape that has a greater chance to malfunction and jam, which may damage
the cassette mechanism.
3.To obtain good reproduction, the head should be cleaned after every 10 to 20 hours of use.
It is also recommended that the cassette be kept away from excessive heat or cold.
4.If there is slack in the tape, remove the slack prior to inserting the cassette. To remove the slack, insert a pencil into the hub and rotate clockwise as shown below:
Tape Supply Reel
Tape Take-up Reel
5.A leader tape is provided at the beginning on each cassette. There is no recording on this area,
so it is necessary to let the tape run for about five seconds to clear the head.
6.Keep the tape head clean since a dirty head can cause distorted sound or improper tape speed.
Depress the Cassette Play Button (# 28) and use a small cotton swab with tape head cleaner or
alcohol to clean the tape head, capstan and pinch roller as shown below:
