this might damage the finish. Use a clean, dry cloth.
... Keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
1. Remove the battery compartment cover.
2. Insert two "AA" (R6, SUM-3) dry batteries.
Make sure that the batteries are inserted with their positive
-- poles positioned correctly.
3. Close the cover until it clicks.
If you notice that the distance between the remote control unit
and the player for correct operation becomes shorter, it
indicates that the batteries are exhausted. In this case replace
the batteries with new ones.
Precautions concerning batteries
... Be sure to insert the batteries with correct positive ± and
... Use batteries of the same type. Never use different types of
... Rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries can be used.
Refer to the precautions on their labels.
... When the remote control unit is not to be used for a long time
(more than a month), remove the batteries from the remote
control unit to prevent them from leaking. If they leak, wipe
away the liquid inside the battery compartment and replace
the batteries with new ones.
... Do not heat or disassemble batteries and never dispose of
old batteries by throwing them in a fire.
The provided Remote Control Unit allows the unit to be
operated from a distance.
When operating the remote control unit, point it towards the
remote sensor on the front panel of the unit.
... Even if the remote control unit is operated within the effective
range, remote control operation may be impossible if there
are any obstacles between the player and the remote control.
... If the remote control unit is operated near other appliances
which generate infrared rays, or if other remote control
devices using infrated rays are used near the player, the
player may operate incorrectly. In the reverse way, the other
appliances may operate incorrectly.

The heads and tape path should be cleaned and
Cleaning Tape Path
... Apply head cleaning fluid to a cotton swab or soft cloth, and
lightly rub the heads, capstan and all metal parts in the tape
... Also clean the pinch roller using rubber cleaning fluid.
