in order to protect the inside of the CD player from the 
vibration and shocks during transportation, the internal 
mechanism is fixed with the transportation screws, 
Before using the CD player, remove the three trans- 
portation screws located on the bottom panel by turn- 
ing the screws counter-clockwise with a phillips or flat- 
biade screwdriver. 

If the CD player is placed with the top panel down and 
the screws are removed, the internal mechanism will 
fall. Be sure to place the CD player with left side panel 
down and remove the screws (red x 3). Before tilting the 
CD player, confirm that no discs are inserted in the CD 
player. 








Transportation 
screws {red) 





| Retain all screws as they will be necessary when the 
| CD player is to be transported. 

| Never remove any screws other than the trans- 
| portation screws. 





@ When retransporting the CD player in the future, 
remove all discs in the CD player and Close all Rolling 
Racks (e® P.18). Turn off the POWER STANDBY/ON 
switch and leave the CD player in STANDBY mode 
for 10 seconds or more. And then, tighten the trans- 
portation screws by turning them clockwise with a 
phillips or flat-blade screwdriver until they stop. Be 
careful not to tighten the screws too firmly. When 
tightening the screws, place the CD player with left 
side panel down. 





Power flows continually to this outlet, regardless of 
whether cassette deck receiver is switched ON or 
OFF. Electrical power consumption of the connect- 
ed equipment should not exceed 100 W. The equip- 
ment should be disconnected by removing the 
mains plug from the wall socket when in not in reg- 
ular use, e.g. when on vacation. 


NOTE: 

Do not connect appliance with higt power con- 
sumption such as heaters, irons or television sets to 
the AC OUTLET in oder to avoid overheating or fire 
risk. 

This can cause the cassette deck receiver to mal- 
function.

COMPACT DISC HANDLING 


CASSETTE TAPES 


| HOWTOHANDLE ~~ a 





CARE OF DISCS 


When holding discs, do not touch their signal sur- 
faces, 

Do not affix gummed fabels or tape to the label sur- 
faces. Also, do not scratch or damage the disc. 
Discs rotate at high speed inside the player. De not 
use damaged (cracked or warped) discs. 


STORING DISCS 


° 


Always store discs in their cases vertically, avoiding 
locations with high heat or humidity, or extremely 
low temperatures. 

Always read and abide by the precautionary notes 
listed on disc labels. 


CLEANING DISCS 


Fingerprints or smudges on the surface of a disc will 
not directly affect the recorded signals. Always keep 
your discs clean by wiping them gently with a soft 
cloth from the inner edge toward the outer periph- 
ery. Follow this by wiping the disc very gently with 
the accessory electrostatic charge removal sheet. 

If a disc becomes very dirty, dip a soft cloth in water, 
and after wringing it out well, wipe the dirt away gen- 
tly. Remove any water drops with another soft, dry 
cloth, 

Do not use record cleaning sprays or anti-static 
agents on discs. Never clean discs with benzene, thin- 
ner, or other volatile solvents, since damage to the 
disc surface may result. 





CD LENS CLEANER 

The player's pickup lens should not become dirty in nor- 
mal use, but if for some reason it should malfunction due 
to soiling, consult your nearest PIONEER authorized ser- 
vice center. Lens cleaners for CD players are commer- 
cially available, but special care should be exercised in their 
use since some may cause damage to the lens. 


Is the tape loose, or is some of the tape sticking out of 
the cassette? 

This will damage the tape itself. To 
remove the slack, insert a pencil 
into the spool and gently wind it. 





Safekeeping 

Put the cassette tape back into its 
case and store it in a location not 
exposed to magnetic fields, humid- 
ity, dust, or oil. 





TIPS ON USING CASSETTE TAPES 

e Leader tape {which does not allow sound to be 
recorded over it) is provided at the beginning of a cas- 
sette tape. Start recording after allowing the tape to 
run for approx. § seconds so that the leader tape 
clears the recording head. 

Forwarding or reversing the cassette tapes before 
recording prevents damage to the unit caused by tape 
slack. 





Do not use tapes longer than 90 minutes. 

Since tapes longer than $0 minutes are so thin, they 
easily jam in the pinch rotler and capstan, and they 
are susceptible to other trouble such as irregular 
winding. Try not to use them with this unit. 








How can you prevent accidental erasure? 

When the tab on the cassette shell is broken out with the 
tip of a screwdriver, it will not be possible to activate the 
recording function even by pressing the @N button, so 
valuable recordings will not be erased in error, 


For side A 





For side 8 





When you want to record again on a cassette with bro- 
ken erasure prevention tabs, cover the hole with a dou- 
ble layer of adhesive tape. 





With TYPE 1} (HIGH/CrOz) tape, be sure not to cover 
the tape-type detection holes. 

lf they are covered, the auto tape selector function 
will not operate correctly.

The heads, capstans and pinch rollers are garts which 
are liable to become dirty quite easily. In particular, if 
the heads are dirty, the high frequency components of 
the sound will not be reproduced and the stereo balance 
will be impaired, resulting in a deterioration of sound 
quality. It is therefore recommended that the head sec- 
tion be cleaned regularly. 
1. Turn the power off. 
2. Press the EJECT mark (4) to open the cassette door. 
3. Dip a cleaning swab into head cleaning fluid and use 
it to wipe the head, capstan, and pinch rollers. Wait

| DEMAGNETIZING 
| THE CASSETTE DECK HEADS 















The deck heads may become magnetized after the deck 
has been u: for a long period of time, or if a magnet 
or other magnetized object (screwdriver, etc.) is brought 
near the heads. Magnetization of the heads results in 
increased noise and reduced ability to reproduce high- 
frequency sounds, 

In this case, please use a commercially available head 
demagnetizer at regular intervals to eliminate the mag: 
netic field on the heads. When using a head demagne- 
tizer, turn this unit's power switch ON. In order to pre- 
vent adverse effects on the receiver and speakers, 
however, be sure to turn down the receiver’s volume 
contro! to its lowest position, and disconnect any 
headphones from their headphones jack. For detaits, 
consult the instructions accompanying your head 
demagnetizer. 


MAINTENANCE OF _ 
EXTERNAL SURFACES oe 








e Use a polishing cloth or dry cloth to wipe off dust and dirt. 

e@ When the surfaces are very dirty, wipe with a soft cloth 
dipped in some neutral cleanser diluted five or six times 
with water, and wrung out weil, then wipe again with 
adry cloth. Do not use furniture wax or cleaners. 

e Never use thinners, benzine, insect: @ sprays or 
other chemicats on or near this unit, since these will 
corrode the surfaces.
