THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
Note: Modifications or adjustments to this
product which are not expressly approved
by the manufacturer could void the user's
authority to operate this product.
This device complies with Part 15 of the
FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may
not cause harmful interference.

CONNECTING POWER
You can power your cassette player from:
• internal batteries (not supplied)
• AC power (using an optional AC
adapter)
• your vehicle’s battery (using an
optional DC adapter)
Note: Connecting an adapter automatically disconnects internal batteries.
Using Batteries
Your cassette player uses two AA batteries (not supplied) for power. For the best
performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.
You can also use rechargeable nickelcadmium batteries to power your cassette
player. Use a battery charger (available at
your local RadioShack store) to recharge
nickel-cadmium batteries.
Preparation
7
14-1250.DS.fm Page 8 Tuesday, May 16, 2000 2:32 PM
Cautions:
• Use only fresh batteries of the
required size and recommended
type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard,
alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different
capacities.
Note: While you replace the batteries, the
cassette player retains the preset station
frequencies you stored for about 1 minute.
To prevent the frequencies from being
erased, replace the batteries within 1
minute.
To install batteries, follow these steps.
1. Press down and pull the battery compartment cover in the direction of the
arrow marked on the cover. Lift open
the cover.
Caution: The battery compartment
cover is hinged. Do not try to remove
it.
2. Place the batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –) and battery placement
8
Preparation
14-1250.DS.fm Page 9 Tuesday, May 16, 2000 2:32 PM
drawings marked on the compartment cover.
3. Replace the cover.
The cassette player’s battery indicator
shows the amount of battery power remaining. The indicator consists of three
sections. The more sections that appear,
the higher the battery power.
If the indicator blinks or the cassette player stops operating properly, replace or recharge the batteries.
Warning: Dispose of old batteries
promptly and properly. Do not burn or
bury them.
Caution: If you do not plan to use the cassette player for a month or more, remove
the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals
that destroy electronic parts.
Important: This cassette
player can use nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries. At the end of a nickelcadmium battery’s useful
life, it must be recycled or
disposed of properly. Contact your local,
county, or state hazardous waste management authorities for information on rePreparation

cycling or disposal programs in your area
or call 1-800-822-8837. Some options that
might be available are: municipal curbside
collection, drop-off boxes at retailers such
as your local RadioShack store, recycling
collection centers, and mail-back programs.
Using AC Power
You can power the cassette player using
a 3V, 250-mA regulated AC adapter and a
size A Adaptaplug adapter (neither supplied). Both are available at your local
RadioShack store.
Cautions:
• You must use a Class 2 power source
that supplies regulated 3V DC and
delivers at least 250 mA. Its center tip
must be set to positive, and its plug
must fit the cassette player’s DC 3V
jack. Using an adapter that does not
meet these specifications could damage the cassette player or the
adapter.
• Always connect the AC adapter to the
cassette player before you connect it
to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power

Using Vehicle Battery Power
You can power the cassette player from a
vehicle’s 12V power source (such as a
cigarette-lighter socket) using a 3V, 250mA regulated DC adapter and a size A
Adaptaplug (neither supplied). Both are
available at your local RadioShack store.
Cautions:
• You must use a power source that
supplies regulated 3V DC and delivers at least 250 mA. Its center tip
must be set to positive and its plug

meet these specifications could damage the cassette player or the
adapter.
• Always plug the DC adapter to the
cassette player before you connect it
to the power source. When you finish,
disconnect the adapter from the
power source before you disconnect
it from the cassette player.
Follow these steps to power the cassette
player from your vehicle’s battery.
1. Set the adapter’s voltage switch to
3V, if necessary.
2. Insert the Adaptaplug into the
adapter’s cord, so it reads + TIP.

CONNECTING
HEADPHONES OR
SPEAKERS
To connect your headphones or amplified
speaker system (not supplied) to the cassette player, insert the headphones’ or
amplified speaker system’s 1/8-inch (3.5
mm) mini-plug into the cassette player’s
headphone jack.
Listening Safely
Follow these guidelines to protect your
hearing when you use headphones.
• Set the volume to the lowest setting
before you begin listening. After you
begin listening, adjust the volume to a
comfortable level.
• Do not listen at extremely high volume levels. Extended high-volume
listening can lead to permanent hearing loss.
• Once you set the volume, do not
increase it. Over time, your ears
adapt to the volume level, so a volume level that does not cause discomfort might still damage your
hearing.

Preparation
14-1250.DS.fm Page 15 Tuesday, May 16, 2000 2:32 PM
Traffic Safety
Do not wear headphones while operating
a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. This
can create a traffic hazard and could be illegal in some areas.
Even though some headphones let you
hear some outside sounds when listening
at normal volume levels, they still can
present a traffic hazard.
SETTING THE FREQUENCY
RANGES AND STEPS
The cassette player is preset to tune to
frequencies in increments of 10 kHz (AM)
and 0.2 MHz (FM) in the United States.
In Europe and some other parts of the
world, AM and FM frequencies are broadcast in increments of 9 kHz (AM) and 0.05
MHz (FM). In Japan, AM and FM frequencies are broadcast in increments of 9 kHz
(AM) and 0.1 MHz (FM). For proper tuning, set the frequency steps for AM and
FM based on your location.
Note: Changing the frequency ranges and
steps erases all stored stations.

TAPE TIPS
We do not recommend long-play cassette
tapes such as C-120s because they are
thin and can easily tangle.
Restoring Tape Tension and
Sound Quality
After you play a cassette tape several
times, the tape might become tightly
wound on the reels. This can cause playback sound quality to deteriorate.
To restore the sound quality, fast-forward
the tape from the beginning to the end of
one side, then completely rewind it. Loosen the tape reels by gently tapping each
side of the cassette’s outer shell on a flat
surface.
Caution: Be careful not to damage the
cassette when tapping it. Do not touch the
exposed tape or allow any sharp objects
near the cassette.
USING THE SLEEP TIMER
You can set the cassette player to play up
to 5 hours and 59 minutes, then automatically turn off. The cassette player must be

CLEANING THE TAPEHANDLING PARTS
Dirt, dust, or particles of the tape’s coating
can accumulate on the tape head and other parts the tape touches. This can greatly
reduce the performance of the cassette
player. After every 20 hours of tape player
operation, follow these steps to clean the
tape-handling parts or use a RadioShack
cassette deck cleaning kit.

4. Use a cotton swab dipped in denatured alcohol or tape head cleaning
solution to clean the tape guides,
playback head, pinch roller, and capstan.
5. When you finish cleaning, press
STOP and close the cassette compartment door. Reconnect power.
RESETTING THE CASSETTE
PLAYER
If the cassette player’s display locks up or
stops operating properly after you connect
power, first replace the batteries with new
ones. If the cassette player still does not
operate properly, you must reset it. To reset the cassette player, use a pointed object such as a paper clip to press RESET.
Important: Resetting the cassette player
clears all the settings you have stored.
Reset the cassette player only when you
are sure it is not working properly.
