INSTALLATION
I
When
installing
the
deck,
avoid
locations
with
high
temperatures
or
humidity,
and
make
sure
that
the
deck
receives
adequate
ventilation.
Do not install the deck in locations subject to direct sunlight, or
near a space heater or other heating device, as this may cause
damage to the finish or internal parts.
Malfunctions
may also result if the deck is installed in an exces-
sively humid or dusty location. Avoid installing the deck next to
kitchen counters or other locations
subject to oily smoke or hu-
midity.
If the deck is placed directly on top of an amplifier, it may pick up
humming or other noise. Also, if the amplifier generates a large
amount of heat, the deck may malfunction.
If the deck is located near a television
set, it may pick up inter
ference noise, which will be recorded as a whistling sound on the
tape. If this happens, move the deck further away from the tele-
vision set or turn the television set off when operating the deck.
Do not place a cloth over the deck, or block the ventilation slots in
any way. The ventilation slots on this deck are necessary to keep
internal parts cool. If they are blocked, the deck may malfunction.
The heads, pinch rollers and capstans
are likely to get dirty
quite easily. If these parts, particularly the heads, get dirty, the
high frequency
components
of a recording
will not be repro-
duced and the stereo balance will be impaired,
resulting
in a
deterioration
of the playback
sound.
It is therefore
recom-
mended that the head section be cleaned regularly.
1. Set the POWER switch to STANDBY.
2. Press the eject button to open the cassette door.
3. Dip a cleaning swab in cleaning fluid and use it to wipe the heads,
capstans and pinch rollers.
NOTE:
After cleaning the head section, do not load a tape until the cleaning
fluid has dried completely
(about two or three minutes).
I
DEMAGNETIZING
THE HEADS
I
After using the cassette
deck for a period of time, the heads will
become magnetized.
The same effect will occur if a magnetized
screwdriver,
magnet
or other magnetized
object is brought too
close to the heads. When the heads become
magnetized,
high-
frequency
sounds will be lost during recording
or playback,
and
interference
noise may also occur. The heads should be regularly
demagnetized with a head demagnetizer,
which can be purchased at
most audio stores.
When demagnetizing
the heads, make sure that the POWER switch
of the cassette deck is set to ON. However,
be sure to turn down
the amplifier's
volume control to its lower position, and disconnect
any headphones
from
their
headphones
jack.
For detailed
instructions,
refer
to the operating
instructions
of the head
demagnetizer.
CLEANING THE FRONT PANEL
]
J
Clean the deck regularly with a soft cloth. If the front panel becomes
soiled, moisten a soft cloth with a weak solution of neutral detergent
(diluted in five to six parts water),wring the cloth well, and wipe the
panel clean. Never use volatile cleaners like thinners, benzine or alco-
hol because they will damege the panel finish.
