When using the PHONES jack of your mini player, you must adjust
the volume of the mini-player or you may hear no sound from
Turning the volume of the mini player up too high may cause the
sound from your R-12 to be distorted. If this is the case, reduce
the volume of the mini player until the distortion stops and then
adjust the volume level of the R-12 to a comfortable listening level
For private listening, insert the headphones plug into this jack,
and adjust the volume using the VOLUME knob.
Always lower the volume level prior to plugging in your
headphones. TO AVOID DAMAGING YOUR HEARING - Do not
place your headphones on your head until after you have plugged
Connect the provided AC adaptor to this jack. Then, connect the

The R-12 uses a Nickel-Metal-Hydride
battery pack stored in the battery
compartment. Leaving the AC adaptor
connected to the R-12 and plugged into an
AC line, ensures the batteries will be fully
charged when you need to use the R-12 on
battery power. The R-12 can be used for 6
to 7 hours after batteries are fully charged.
When the batteries need to be
recharged, the POWER ON indicator
blinks at regular intervals. The blinking
interval will grow faster as the batteries
get closer to discharge until the R-12
shuts off automatically to protect the
When the R-12 is not being used but the
AC adaptor is plugged in, the batteries
will be completely charged within
approximately 3.5 hours from a full
discharge. During this period the POWER
ON indicator will flash.
When the R-12 is ON and the AC
adaptor plugged in, the batteries will be
completely charged within approximately
It may take up to 4 charge and discharge
cycles before the batteries are operating
at full capacity when the R-12 is new or
left unused for several weeks.
It is suggested that the R-12 be plugged
in for about 12 hours before you use it
for the first time.
Once the R-12 has been fully charged
while it is OFF, do not unplug the AC
adaptor and then immediately plug it
again. This will restart the charging cycle
even though the batteries are fully
charged. Doing this repeatedly will
damage the batteries.
If the R-12 is not plugged in, the
batteries will slowly discharge as a safety
The cycles of recharging the Nickel-
Metal-Hydride battery pack diminish the
battery's capacity. It is called "Memory
effect". To prevent this, sometimes the
battery must be fully discharged before
you recharge it.
To discharge the battery, unplug the AC
adaptor and leave the R-12 ON until it
will shut off automatically. If you feel the
battery capacity was reduced, leave the
battery unused for several weeks.
If the usable time decreases after the battery is fully charged, replace the
battery with a new one. To order new battery pack for replacement, please
contact your dealer or a TEAC service center.
1. Remove the battery compartment cover.
2. Disconnect the battery pack connector, and remove it.
3. Insert a new battery pack and attach its connector.
4. Close the cover.
Do not heat or disassemble rechargeable batteries. Never dispose of old
batteries by throwing them in a fire.
