PREPARATION

CONNECTING POWER

Plug the clock radio’s power cord into a standard AC outlet. The display flashes.

Note: The power cord’s plug is polarized (one side is larger than the other). If it does not fit, turn it over. Do not force it.

INSTALLING THE BACKUP BATTERY

To keep the clock running during an AC power failure, install a 9-voltbattery. We recommend an alkaline battery, such as Radio Shack Cat. No.23-553.

Notes:

To prevent unnecessary drain on the backup battery, plug in the AC power cord before you install the battery.

The clock’s display does not light while operating from battery backup power, but the clock keeps time for up to 8 hours.

If the display flashes after a power failure, the battery is too low to run the clock. Replace the battery and reset the clock.

1.Press the latch on the battery compartment cover and slide the cover in the direction of the arrow and remove it.

2.Snap the battery into the battery terminals. Then put the battery in the compartment.

USING EARPHONES

To listen in privacy, turn VOLUME to its lowest setting and plug a monaural earphone with a1/8-inchplug into thePHONE jack. Your local Radio Shack store has a complete line of earphones.

Listening Safely

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

7

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 high volume 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.
