CARE AND MAINTENANCE
CLEANING THE EXTERIOR
· Disconnect the system from AC power before cleaning the exterior of the unit with a soft dust cloth.
HANDLING CDS
· Do not touch the signal surfaces. Hold by the edges, or by one edge and the hole.
· Do not affix labels or adhesive tape to the label surfaces. Also, do not scratch or damage the label.
· Discs rotate at high speed inside the player. Do not use damaged (cracked or warped) discs.
CLEANING CDS
· Dirty discs can cause poor sound quality. Always keep discs clean by wiping them gently with a soft cloth from
the inner edge toward the outer perimeter.
· If a disc becomes dirty, wet a soft cloth in water, wring it out well, wipe the dirt away gently, and then remove
any water drops with a dry cloth.
· Do not use record cleaning sprays or antistatic agents on discs. Also, never clean discs with benzene, thinner,
or other volatile solvents which may cause damage to the disc surface.
TAPE CARE
· Do not expose tapes to sunlight or store in hot places. High temperatures may warp the shell or damage the
tape itself.
·Keep cassettes in their boxes when not in use.
· Cassette tapes can be erased by magnetic fields produced by magnets, electric motors, electrical transformers,
and other devices. Keep tapes away from magnets and magnetic fields.
CLEANING THE TAPE HEADS
Iron oxide particles from the magnetic tape can build up on the parts that come in contact with the tape. These
deposits can cause incomplete erasure, muffled playback sound, and might prevent automatic stop.
To clean a cassette deck, open the compartment door, press PLAY
and gently clean the heads, capstan, and
pinch wheel with a head cleaner.
Always unplug the power cord before cleaning, and allow 30 minutes drying time after using a liquid cleaner.
Clean heads after every 25 hours of use.
· Demagnetize the head occasionally with a head demagnetizing cassette (available from many audio equipment
stores).
·Never use any metal objects on or near the tape heads.
· Do not allow any cleaning material to fall into the tape assembly.

ATTENTION:RISQUE DE CHOC ELECTRIQUE, NE PAS OUVRIR
CAUTION
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
DO NOT OPEN
The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within
an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user
to the presence of uninsulated "dangerous voltage"
within the product's enclosure that may be of
sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric
shock to persons.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle
is intended to alert the user to the presence of
important operating and maintenance (servicing)
instructions in the literature accompanying the
appliance.
GETTING STARTED
POWERING UP
This CD portable system operates on battery or AC power.
BATTERY POWER
Insert six R20 (SUM-1)/D (13D)-sized batteries (not supplied) and
you can take your system just about anywhere. Open the battery
compartment door on the back of the unit by pressing down the
two tabs and pulling out the cover. Insert batteries as marked on
the back.
Important Battery Information
· If you are not going to use your system for a month or more, be
sure to remove batteries because they can leak and cause
damage.
· Dispose of batteries in the proper manner, according to federal,
state, and local regulations.
· Discard leaky batteries immediately. Leaking batteries can
cause skin burns or other personal injury.
AC POWER
Plug the power supply cord into the
Ó AC IN jack on the back of the unit, and into an AC power outlet.
CAUTIONS:
1. ONLY USE JVC POWER CORD PROVIDED WITH THIS UNIT TO AVOID MALFUNCTION OR DAMAGE
TO THE UNIT. REMOVE BATTERIES WHEN USING THE POWER CORD.
2. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE POWER CORD FROM THE OUTLET WHEN GOING OUT OR WHEN THE
UNIT IS NOT IN USE FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME.
USING HEADPHONES
Connect commercially available headphones to the PHONES jack on the rear of the main unit. While the
headphones are connected, the speakers do not produce any sound. Before connecting the headphones, make
sure to turn down the sound volume.
ANTENNAS
The AM antenna is built in, so adjusting the position of the unit may help AM reception. The FM telescopic
antenna on the back of the unit can be extended and rotated for better FM reception.
GENERAL CONTROLS

RECORDING ON CASSETTE TAPES
You can record from the radio or the CD player.
For best recording, use normal bias tape.
It should be noted that it may be unlawful to re-record pre-recorded tapes, records, or discs without
the consent of the owner of copyright in the sound or video recording, broadcast or cable program
and in any literary, dramatic, musical, or artistic work embodied therein.
ERASE PROTECTION
When you record new material, the cassette deck records over
whatever is on a tape. To protect a tape from accidental erasure,
break off one or both plastic tabs (one for each tape side) on the
top of the cassette tape. If you decide later to record on the tape,
seal the hole with a piece of cellophane tape.
WARNING
A little bit of slack in your tape can cause scratches on the tape, or worse yet, the tape
could break. If you notice some slack in the tape, use a pencil to tighten it up before you
insert it in the tape deck.
TIP
The use of tapes longer than 120 minutes is not recommended, since characteristic deterioration may occur and
these tapes easily jam in the pinch-roller and the capstan.
RECORDING FROM THE RADIO

In some cases, test frequencies have been already memorized for the tuner since the factory examined
the tuner preset function before shipment. This is not a malfunction. You can preset the stations you
want into memory by following the presetting method.
·
If you unplug the AC power cord or if a power failure occurs, the preset stations will be erased in a few
days. If this happens, preset the stations again.
