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.

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.
