PREPARATION

CONNECTING TO AC POWER

Plug the clock radio’s power cord into a standard AC outlet. The display turns on and the BATTERY SENTINEL indicator lights. (See “Installing Back-UpBatteries.”)

Caution: The clock radio’s AC power cord is equipped with a polarized plug to prevent electric shock. One blade on the cord’s plug is wider than the other and the plug only fits an outlet one way. If you cannot easily insert the plug, turn it over and try again. Do not force it.

INSTALLING BACK-UPBATTERIES

To keep the clock running for up to 8 hours during an AC power failure, install three AA batteries (not supplied) in the battery compartment. For the longest life, we recommend alkaline batteries.

Caution: Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Note: To prevent unnecessary drain on the battery, connect AC powerthen install the batteries.

Follow these steps to install back-upbatteries.

1.Slide the battery compartment cover in the direction of the arrow and remove it.

2.Place the batteries in the compartment and on top of the attached ribbon, as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked in the compartment.

3.Replace the cover.

The BATTERY SENTINEL indicator lights if the back-upbatteries are not installed or need to be replaced.

Warning: Always dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not bury or burn them.

To enjoy your RadioShack AM/FM PLL Clock/Table Radio for a long time:

Keep the clock radio dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.

Use and store the clock radio only in normal temperature environments.

Handle the clock radio gently and carefully. Do not drop it.

Keep the clock radio away from dust and dirt.

Wipe the clock radio with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.

Modifying or tampering with the clock radio’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to use it. If your clock radio is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

Your clock radio might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To determine whether your clock radio is causing the interference, turn off your clock radio. If the interference goes away, your clock radio is causing the interference. Try to eliminate the interference by:

moving your clock radio away from the TV or radio

connecting your clock radio to an outlet that is on different electrical circuit from the receiver

contacting your local RadioShack store for help

If you cannot eliminate the reference, the FCC requires you that you stop using your radio.
