PREPARATION

CONNECTING POWER

You can power the CD-3318from any of the following:

AC power using the supplied AC power cord

Eight D batteries (not supplied)

Vehicle battery power using a DC- to-ACinverter (not supplied)

Using AC Power

To power the CD-3318from standard AC power, plug the supplied AC power cord into theAC IN~ jack, then plug the other end into a standard AC outlet.

Caution: The supplied AC power cord has a polarized plug that fits into the outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit properly, turn it over and try again. Do not force it.

Note: TheCD-3318automatically disconnects internal batteries when you connect the AC power cord.

Using Batteries

You can power the CD-3318from eight D batteries (not supplied). For the best results, we recommend alkaline batteries (such as Radio Shack Cat. No. 23550).

1.Press the two latches on the battery compartment cover and pull out the cover to remove it.

2.Place the eight D batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked next to the battery compartment.

Cautions:

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and type.

Never mix old with new batteries.

If you do not plan to use the batteries in the CD-3318for a month or more, remove the batteries to protect theCD-3318from possible battery leakage.

3.Replace the battery compartment cover.

5

14-542.fmPage 6 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 3:38 PM

If the CD-3318does not operate properly or if the sound weakens or distorts, replace the batteries.

Cautions:

Always dispose of the old batteries promptly and properly.

Never leave dead, old, or weak batteries in the CD-3318.They can leak chemicals and corrode or damage electronic circuits.

Using Your Vehicle’s Battery

You can power the CD-3318from your vehicle’s battery using aDC-to-ACinverter (such as Radio Shack Cat. No.22-132,not supplied).

Cautions:

To protect your vehicle’s electrical system, always plug the AC power cord into AC IN~ and the inverter before you plug the inverter into the cigarette lighter socket. Always unplug the inverter from the cigarette lighter socket before you unplug the AC power cord fromAC IN~ and the inverter.

The recommended inverter supplies 120 volts AC power and delivers at least 315 milliamps. Using an inverter that does not meet these specifications could damage the CD-3318.

1.Plug the supplied power cord into the AC IN~ jack on the back of theCD-3318.

2.Plug the AC power cord into the power inverter’s AC jack.

3.Plug the power inverter into your car’s cigarette lighter socket.

Note: If theCD-3318does not operate properly when you use the inverter, unplug the inverter from the cigarette lighter socket and clean the socket to remove ashes and debris. Also, check the AC power cord for proper connection. If it still does not operate properly, check the fuse in the inverter.

14-542.fmPage 7 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 3:38 PM

USING HEADPHONES

For private listening, you can connect a pair of stereo headphones (not supplied) with a 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.

Note: Connecting the headphones automatically disconnects thebuilt-inspeaker.

Listening Safely

To protect your hearing, follow these guidelines when you use headphones.

Set the volume to the lowest setting before you begin listening. After you begin listening, adjust the volume to a comfortable level.

Do not listen at extremely high volume levels. Extended highvolume listening can lead to permanent hearing loss.

Once you set the volume, do not increase it. Over 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. This can create a traffic hazard and is illegal in some areas.

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.

7

14-542.fmPage 8 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 3:38 PM

RADIO OPERATION

Warning: To protect your hearing, setVOLUME to its lowest setting before you turn on the radio.

For the best AM reception, rotate the CD-3318to position thebuilt-inAM antenna.

For the best FM reception, fully extend the telescoping antenna and swivel it to the position that produces the best reception.

5.Adjust VOLUME andTONE to the desired levels.

3.Adjust TUNING to the desired station.

6. Press E-BASS to enhance the bass sounds while playing the radio. Press the button again to turn the extended bass system off.

4.Set BEAT CUT to1 or2 for stereo sound on FM stations.

7. Set RADIO.CD OFF toTAPE to turn off the radio.

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-labelside. (Signals are read from thenon-labelside.)

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

Keep CDs 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 getting fingerprints on the CD and always keep it in its protective case or sleeve when 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. 42225).

If you move the player from a cold place to a warmer one, moisture might condense on the pickup lens, preventing proper disc play. If this happens, wait 2 hours before attempting to operate it again.

14-542.fmPage 15 Wednesday, June 30, 1999 3:38 PM

CASSETTE PLAYER OPERATION

Your CD-3318uses adual-cassettedeck system, which lets you play cassette tapes from either of two decks and record from a variety of sources.

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 screwdriver to remove one or both of the cassette tape’serase-protectiontabs.

If you want to record over a tape side after you have removed the erase-pro-tection tab, place a piece of strong plastic tape over that side’serase-pro-tection hole.

Notes:

Be sure you cover only the hole originally covered by the eraseprotection tab.

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 the entire cassette tape, record silence by setting the

RADIO.CD OFF switch to TAPEor

CD (with no other tape or CD loaded) and pressRECORD on Tape 1.

To quickly erase a tape, use a bulk tape eraser (such as Radio Shack Cat. No. 44-232,not supplied).

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.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Your Radio Shack CD-3318is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for theCD-3318so you can enjoy it for years.

Keep the CD-3318dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Water contains minerals that can corrode electronic circuits.

Handle the CD-3318carefully. Dropping it can damage the case and circuit boards and cause theCD-3318to work improperly.

Use the CD-3318only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and warp or melt plastic parts.

Keep the CD-3318away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.

Wipe the CD-3318with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean theCD-3318.

Modifying or tampering with the CD-3318sinternal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If theCD-3318is not performing as it should, take it to your local Radio Shack store for assistance.
