CD CARE TIPS

Even though a compact disc is very durable, treat the CD surface with care. We recommend the following precautions:

Do not place anything but a CD in the disc tray. This can damage the drive mechanism.

Do not write on either side of the CD, particularly the non-label

10

side. (Signals are read from the non-labelside.)

Do not store CDs in high-tempera-ture,high-humiditylocations. The CDs might warp.

Keep the CD dry. A water drop can act as a lens and affect the laser beam’s focus.

Always handle a CD by the edges to avoid fingerprints and always keep it in its protective case or sleeve when it is not in use. Fingerprints and scratches on the CD’s surface can prevent the laser beam from correctly reading the digital information. To clean the CD surface, use a CD Cleaner Kit (such as Cat. No. 42-116).

If you move the player from a very cold room to a warmer one, moisture can condense on the pickup lens, preventing proper disc play. If this happens, turn the CD player off then wait 30 minutes before attempting to operate it again.

TAPE CARE TIPS

Preventing Accidental

Erasure

Cassette tapes have two erase-protec-tion tabs - one for each side. To protect a recording from being accidentally recorded over or erased, use a screw-

Removing the erase-protectiontabs does not prevent a bulk eraser from erasing a cassette tape.

Erasing a Cassette Tape

If you no longer want a recording, you can record over it or erase it.

To erase a previously recorded tape, you can either:

13

14-540.fmPage 14 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 2:27 PM

Remove all input sources so you can record silence over all or part of the tape.

Use a bulk tape eraser (such as Cat. No. 44-232,not supplied), available at your local Radio Shack store.

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-for-ward the tape from the beginning to the end of one side, then completely rewind it. Then 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.

14

14-540.fmPage 15 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 2:27 PM

USING HEADPHONES

For private listening, you can use a pair of stereo headphones (not supplied) with an 1/8-inchplug. Your local Radio Shack store carries a wide selection of stereo headphones.

To connect the headphones, insert the headphones’ 1/8-inchplug into the

PHONES jack.

Then put on the headphones and adjust VOLUME to a comfortable listening level.

Note: Connecting the headphones automatically disconnects thebuilt-inspeakers.

LISTENING SAFELY

Do not listen at extremely high volume levels. Extended, high-volumelistening can lead to permanent hearing loss. Follow these guidelines to protect your hearing, especially when you use headphones.

Always start by setting the volume to the lowest level possible before you begin listening. Put the headphones on, then gradually increase the volume as necessary.

Once you set the volume, do not increase it. Over a period of time, your ears adapt to the volume level, so a volume level that does not cause discomfort might still damage your hearing.

TRAFFIC SAFETY

Do not wear headphones while operating a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle. Even though some headphones are designed to let you hear some outside sounds when listening at normal volume levels, they still present a traffic hazard and are illegal in some areas.
