Safety Precautions
Important Battery Information
• When storing the unit or unplugging it from the AC outlet for a day or more, be sure to remove the
battery because it may leak and damage the unit.
• Batteries may leak electrolyte if inserted incorrectly, if disposed of in fire, or if an attempt is made to
charge a battery not intended to be recharged.
• Discard leaky batteries immediately. Leaking batteries may cause skin burns or other personal injury.
• Dispose of batteries, according to federal, state and local regulations.
Headset Safety
• Do not play your headset at a high volume. Hearing experts advise against continuous extended play.
• If you experience a ringing in your ears, reduce volume or discontinue use.
• You should use extreme caution or temporarily discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.
• Even if your headset is an open-air type designed to let you hear outside sounds, don't turn up the
volume so high that you can't hear what's around you.

Before you Begin
l
Powering Up
This unit operates on battery or AC power.
Battery Power
Insert 4 C-sized alkaline batteries (not supplied) and you can take your
stereo just about anywhere. Open the battery compartment door on
the back of the unit by pressing down on the two tabs and pulling out
the cover. Insert batteries as shown in the battery compartment. Note
that the AC line cord must be unplugged from the AC power outlet to
operate on batteries. You can wind the line cord and store it into the
built-in cord cabinet.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to remove batteries when storing the set for more than 30 days. Leaky batteries can
badly damage the stereo. Always return tape operation buttons to their off position before storing. This
will relieve pressure on certain parts in the tape recorder that might deform after long periods of time.
Dispose of leaky, dead or weak batteries properly.
AC Power
Plug the power supply cord into an AC power outlet that accepts the polarized plug
(one blade wider than the other).
Antennas
The AM antenna is built in, so adjusting the position of the unit may help AM reception.
The FM whip antenna on the back of the unit can be extended and rotated for better FM reception.
Headphones
To listen to your stereo with headphones (not included), use the 1/8-inch PHONE jack on the top of the unit.
Have a Blast—Just Not on Your Eardrums
Make sure that you turn down the stereo before you put on the
headphones; then increase the volume to the desired level after they are
in place.
