Slide the OPEN switch to the right to unlock the CD door. Remove the ‘transit card’ from the player and discard it.

POWER SOURCES

This personal CD player is designed to operate on two “AA” batteries, not included. Use a well known brand of Alkaline batteries for longest life and best performance.

This player can also be operated by with an optional AC/DC converter/adapter, not included. If you decide to purchase an optional AC/DC adapter the specification must be as follows:

Input: 120V 60Hz AC

Output: 4.5V DC, 500 mA.

You may also purchase a “Universal” type AC/DC adapter which allows you to select the required output voltage and plug polarity, and normally includes multiple plug sizes to fit most brands of equipment. Always look for the “UL” listing mark when you purchase an adapter.
