CAUTION: For compact disc units only: invisible laser radiation when open and interlock failed or defeated. Avoid direct exposure to laser beam.
Caution: To prevent electric shock, match wide blade of plug to wide slot, fully insert. 7 BEFORE USE 1. Before use, please remove any additional tie downs, foam, etc. that were added to make the item secure while shipment. 2. Choose unit installation location carefully. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight or close to a source of heat. Also avoid locations subject to vibrations and excessive dust, cold or moisture. Keep away from sources that hum, such as transformers or motors. 3. Do not open the cabinet as this might result in damage to the circuitry or electrical shock. If a foreign object should get into the set, contact your dealer. 4. Be sure not to handle discs with dirty fingers. Never insert a disc that has a crack on the surface. 5. When removing the power plug from the wall outlet, always pull directly on the plug, never pull the cord. 6. To keep the laser pickup clean, do not touch it, and do not forget to close the disc tray. 7. Do not attempt to clean the unit with chemical solvents as this might damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth. 8. In order to shut off the power to this product completely, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Be sure to unplug the unit if you do not intend to use it for an extended period of time, such as while on vacation. 9. Keep this manual in a safe place for future reference. Beware of Condensation When the player (or a compact disc) is moved from a cold to a warm place or is used after a sudden temperature change, there is a danger of condensation. Water vapor in the air could condense on the mechanism or the laser pickup. If droplets of water form on these parts, correct playback will be impossible because the laser cannot read the information from the disc correctly. To prevent this, if you are going to use the player in a condition where condensation could occur, you should leave the player for 1 or 2 hours after plugging it into an AC outlet depending on the amount of condensation. If this is done, the player will stabilize at the temperature of its surroundings. 8 HANDLING RECORDS 1. Do not touch the record's grooves. Only handle records by the edges or the label with clean hands. Otherwise, a dirty hand can leave a residue on the recode surface that will gradually deteriorate the quality of your record. 2. Use a soft anti‐static cloth to gently wipe the record surface if the record has become dirty. 3. Keep records in their “jacket” when not in use. 4. Store records upright on their edges. The level store would make it become curved. 5. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight or close to a source of heat such as radiators, stoves. Also avoid location subject to vibration and excessive dust, heat, cold or moisture. CLEANING A RECORD Preparation Get all your cleaning materials ready, such as a soft lint‐free cloth (included) and a record‐cleaning pad (not included). If you decide on a wet‐cleaning, a record‐cleaning fluid (not included) is required. To clean on the turntable 1. Lock the tone arm on the tone arm rest. 2. Wash your hands. 3. Place a record on the turntable, handling the record by edges and labeled area. 4. Dry‐clean the record if it is not very dusty and has been cleaned regularly. 5. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for applying fluid if you decide to wet clean. Be sure no fluid drips into on the turntable. 9 6. Manually rotate the turntable in a clockwise direction while cleaning gently into the grooves. 7. Sweep the cloth up and away and lift dust from the record surface. 8. Get rid of the dust from cloth and do it away from the turntable. 9. Repeat until you see no dust on the record. To clean on the pad (not included) 1. Wash your hands. 2. Place the pad on a dry flat surface. 3. Place a record on the pad, handling the record by edges and labeled area. 4. Dry‐clean the record if it is not very dusty and has been cleaned regularly. 5. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for applying fluid if you decide to wet clean. Be sure no fluid drips into on the turntable. 6. Gently wipe the grooves of the record in a clockwise direction. 7. Sweep the cloth up and away and lift dust from the record surface. 8.

Depending on the quality of the disc and the condition of the recording, some CD‐R/CD‐RW disc may not be playable. Always place the disc on the disc tray with the label facing upward.(Compact discs can be played or recorded only on one side) To move a disc from its storage case, press down on the center of the case and lift the disc out, holding it carefully by the edges. If the disc becomes dirty, wipe the surface from the center hole outward towards the outer edge with a soft, dry cloth. Never use such chemicals as record spray, antistatic sprays or fluid, benzine or thinner to clean the discs. Such chemicals will do irreparable damage to the disc's plastic surface. Discs should be returned to their cases after use to avoid dust and scratches that could cause the laser pick up “skip”. Do not expose discs to direct sunlight or high humidity and temperature for extend periods. Long exposure to high temperatures will warp the disc. Printable CD‐R and CD‐RW discs are not recommended, as the label side might be sticky and damage the unit. Use a soft oil‐based felt‐tipped pen to write the information on the label side. Never use a ball‐point or hard‐tipped pen, as this may cause damage to the recorded side. Do not use CDs with an irregular shape (octagonal, heart shaped, business card size, etc).CDs of this sort can damage the unit. If you have any doubts of using CD‐R/CD‐RW disc, read the precautions supplied with the disc, or contact the disc manufacture directly. 12 TAPE HEADS MAINTENANCE When the sound is distorted or faint, use a special cleaning tape to clean the oxides and dust deposition thoroughly to maintain smooth head and extend its life.
