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.

Precautions
Never open the cabinet under any circumstances. Never operate this product with the cabinet removed.
Any repairs or internal adjustments should be made only by a trained service technician.
Do not touch the player with wet hands. If any liquid enters the player cabinet, take the player to a
trained service technician for inspection.
This Compact Disc Player uses a laser to read the music on the disc. The laser mechanism corresponds to
the cartridge and stylus of a traditional record player. Although this product incorporates a laser pick-up
lens, it is completely safe when operated according to directions.
For Your Safety
The AC power plug is polarized (one blade is wider than the other) and only fits into AC
power outlets one way. If the plug won't go into the outlet completely, turn the plug over
and try to insert it the other way. If it still won't fit, contact a qualified electrician to change
the outlet, or use a different one. Do not attempt to bypass this safety feature.
Important Battery Information
If you're not going to use your remote for a month or more, be sure to remove batteries because they
can leak and cause damage.
Dispose of batteries in the proper manner, according to federal, state, and local regulations.
Any battery may leak electrolyte if mixed with a different battery type, if inserted incorrectly, if all
batteries are not replaced at the same time, 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 can cause skin burns or other personal injury.
Service Information
This product should be serviced only by those specially trained in appropriate servicing techniques.

Before you begin
Moisture Condensation
Just as moisture can form on the inside of windows on a cold day, it can also form on the inside
of your stereo, causing it to malfunction.
If moisture forms inside this player, it may not operate properly. To correct the problem, turn off
the power and wait about 30 minutes for moisture to evaporate.
Location
These guidelines should be followed when setting up your system:
Choose a level, solid, surface. Don't place on a soft surface, such as carpeting or foam rubber.
Choose a location away from direct sunlight, radiators, air ducts, and other sources of heat.
Avoid locations that are subject to moisture, mechanical vibration, shock, or excessive dust.
Make sure that the location has adequate air circulation. Good ventilation is essential to protect
the system from internal heat build up.
Speaker Placement
For optimal listening:
Speakers should be placed at least three feet apart and facing the listener.
Speakers should be placed at least two to three feet from the wall to avoid accentuated bass
response.

Care and Maintenance
Cleaning the Exterior
Disconnect the system from AC power before cleaning the exterior of the unit with a soft
dust cloth.
Handling Compact Discs
Do not touch the signal surfaces. Hold by the edges, or by one edge and the hole.
Do not affix labels or adhesive tape to the label surfaces. Also, do not scratch or damage
the label.
Discs rotate at high speeds inside the player. Do not use damaged (cracked or warped) discs.
Cleaning Compact Discs
Dirty discs can cause poor sound quality. Always keep discs clean by wiping them gently with a soft
cloth from the inner edge toward the outer perimeter.
If a disc becomes dirty, wet a soft cloth in water, wring it out well, wipe the dirt away gently, and
then remove any water drops with a dry cloth.
Do not use record cleaning sprays or antistatic agents on discs. Also, never clean discs with
benzene, thinner, or other volatile solvents which may cause damage to the disc surface.
Tape Care
Don't expose tapes to sunlight or store in hot places. High temperatures may warp the shell or damage
the tape itself.
Keep cassettes in their boxes when not in use.
Cassette tapes can be erased by magnetic fields produced by magnets, electric motors, electrical
transformers, and other devices. Keep tapes away from magnets and magnetic fields.
Cleaning the Tape Heads
Iron oxide particles from the magnetic tape can build up on the parts that come in contact with the
tape. These deposits can cause incomplete erasure, muffled playback sound, and might prevent
automatic stop.
To clean a cassette tape, open the compartment door, push the PLAY button and gently clean the
heads, capstan, and pinch wheel with a head cleaner.
Always unplug the power cord before cleaning, and
allow 30 minutes drying time when using a liquid
cleaner.
Clean heads after every 25 hours of use.
Clean these parts
Demagnetize the head occasionally with a head demagnetizing cassette (available from many audio
equipment stores).
Never use any metal objects on or near the tape heads.
Do not allow any cleaning material to fall into the tape assembly.
