PREPARATION FOR USE

Unpacking And Set Up

Carefully remove the unit from the carton and remove all packing materials from the unit.

Carefully remove any small strips of tape which may have been used to keep the CD and Cassette doors closed during shipment.

Open the CD compartment by pressing the OPEN/CLOSE wording on the CD door. Inside the CD compartment you will see a dummy CD protection card which is used to prevent the laserpick-upfrom moving during shipment. Carefully remove this card and close the CD compartment door.

Please save the carton and packing materials in the event that your unit ever needs to be returned for service. The original carton and packing materials are the only way to protect the unit from damage during shipment.

The AC power cord is inside the polyfoam packing material. Make sure that you do not accidentally discard the AC cord with the packing material.

Protect Your Furniture

This model is equipped with non-skidrubber 'feet' to prevent the product from moving when you operate the controls. These 'feet' are made fromnon-migratingrubber material specially formulated to avoid leaving any marks or stains on your furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture polishes, wood preservatives, or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber 'feet' to soften, and leave marks or a rubber residue on the furniture. To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly recommend that you purchase smallself-adhesivefelt pads, available at hardware stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these pads to the bottom of the rubber 'feet' before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.

Power Sources

This unit is designed to operate on 8 C”batteries, not included, or on normal 120V 60Hz AC house current. Operating this unit from any other power source may cause damage to the unit, and such damage is not covered by your warranty.

Battery Operation

1.) Open the battery compartment door on the bottom of the cabinet by pressing down on the “” mark and sliding the door in the direction of the ‘arrow’.

2.) Insert 8 C”size batteries into the battery compartment according to the polarity diagram engraved inside the compartment. If the batteries are inserted incorrectly the unit will not work.

3.) Replace the battery compartment door.

NOTE: In order to operate the unit on battery power the AC cord must be disconnected from the AC socket on the back cabinet.

BATTERY PRECAUTIONS

Follow these precautions when using batteries in this device:

1.Use only the size and type of batteries specified.

2.Be sure to follow the correct polarity when installing the batteries as indicated in the battery compartment. Reversed batteries may cause damage to the device.

3.Do not mix different types of batteries together (e.g. Alkaline and Carbon-Zinc)or old batteries with fresh ones.

4.If the device is not to be used for a long period of time, remove the batteries to prevent damage or injury from possible battery leakage.

5.Do not try to recharge batteries not intended to be recharged; they can overheat and rupture. (Follow battery manufacturer’s directions.)

AC Operation

Connect the small end of the AC Power Cord to the AC socket on the back cabinet, then insert the plug in any convenient household 120V 60Hz AC outlet.

Note:

This unit has a polarized AC plug with one wide blade and one narrow blade. This plug will only fit into a matching polarized AC outlet. This is a safety feature to reduce the possibility of electric shock.

If this plug will not fit in your AC outlet, you probably have an outdated non-polarizedoutlet. You should have your outdated outlet changed by a qualified, licensed electrician.

Do not file the wide blade on the plug, or use an adapter to make the plug fit into your outlet. This defeats the safety feature and could expose you to electric shock.
