Carefully remove the main unit and the accessories from the display carton and remove all the packing material from the unit.

Carefully remove any small strips of tape that may have been used to prevent the CD door from opening in transit.

Unwind the AC power cord and extend it to its full length. The FM antenna is built into the AC power cord.

This unit was shipped with a dummy CD transit card in the CD player. This dummy CD prevents the laser pick up from moving during shipment. This card must be removed before you can insert your own CDs. Press on the CD door in the area marked ‘OPEN’. Remove the transit card from the CD player and discard it.

Place the unit on a flat, level surface such as a table, desk, counter, shelf, etc, convenient to a 120V 60Hz AC outlet, out of direct sunlight, and away from sources of excess heat, dust, moisture, or strong magnet fields.

BATTERY BACK UP SYSTEM

This model includes a battery back up circuit that will maintain the clock and alarm settings in the event of a temporary power interruption. The battery back up system requires one 9-Voltbattery, not included. The battery compartment is located on the back of the cabinet.

1.) Press downward on the battery door locking tab and remove the door.

2.) Attach a fresh 9-Voltalkaline battery to the battery contacts as shown, and push the battery back into the battery compartment.

3.) Replace the battery door.

If the power is interrupted the display will go off and the radio will not work. However the battery will maintain the clock and alarm settings in memory. When the power is restored the display will come on again and the clock and alarm settings will be correct.

The life of the battery will depend on the frequency and length of the power interruptions that you experience. For best results we suggest you install a fresh battery every 9 to 12 months. Always use a well-knownbrand of alkaline battery.

AC Plug
AC Outlet

POWER SOURCE

This radio is designed to operate on 120V 60Hz AC only. Attempting to operate this radio on any other power source could cause damage to the unit and such damage is not covered by your warranty.

Make sure the radio is connected to an AC outlet that is always “live”. Do not connect the radio to an outlet that is controlled by a wall switch.

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-polarized

outlet. 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.

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.
