CONNECTING POWER

You can power your cassette player from:

internal batteries (not supplied)

AC power (using an optional AC adapter)

your vehicle’s battery (using an optional DC adapter)

Note: Connecting an adapter automatically disconnects internal batteries.

Using Batteries

Your cassette player uses two AA batteries (not supplied) for power. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.

You can also use rechargeable nickelcadmium batteries to power your cassette player. Use a battery charger (available at your local RadioShack store) to recharge nickel-cadmiumbatteries.

Cautions:

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

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

Note: While you replace the batteries, the cassette player retains the preset station frequencies you stored for about 1 minute. To prevent the frequencies from being erased, replace the batteries within 1 minute.

To install batteries, follow these steps.

1.Press down and pull the battery compartment cover in the direction of the arrow marked on the cover. Lift open the cover.

Caution: The battery compartment cover is hinged. Do not try to remove it.

2.Place the batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)and battery placement

3. Replace the cover.

The cassette player’s battery indicator shows the amount of battery power remaining. The indicator consists of three sections. The more sections that appear, the higher the battery power.

If the indicator blinks or the cassette player stops operating properly, replace or recharge the batteries.

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

Caution: If you do not plan to use the cassette player for a month or more, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that destroy electronic parts.

Important: This cassette player can usenickel-cad-mium rechargeable batteries. At the end of a nickelcadmium battery’s useful life, it must be recycled or

disposed of properly. Contact your local, county, or state hazardous waste management authorities for information on re-

Using AC Power

You can power the cassette player using a 3V, 250-mAregulated AC adapter and a size A Adaptaplug adapter (neither supplied). Both are available at your local RadioShack store.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power source that supplies regulated 3V DC and delivers at least 250 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive, and its plug must fit the cassette player’s DC 3V jack. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the cassette player or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the cassette player before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power
