General Safety Instructions
Read the operating instructions carefully before putting
the appliance into operation and keep the instructions in-
cluding the warranty, the receipt and, if possible, the box
with the internal packing. If you give this device to other
people, please also pass on the operating instructions.
•	 To avoid the risk of fire or an electric shock, you
should not expose the device to rain or moisture.
Consequently, do not use the device in the immediate
vicinity of water - for example near a bath tub, a
swimming pool or in a damp cellar.
•	 The appliance is designed exclusively for private use
and for the envisaged purpose. This appliance is not
fit for commercial use.
•	 Only connect the device at a properly installed plug
socket. Pay attention that the specified voltage cor-
responds to the voltage of the plug socket.
•	 When using external mains supply, pay attention to
the correct polarity and voltage. Always place the
batteries in the correct direction.
•	 Assemble the device in such a way that the available
ventilation openings are not covered.
•	 Never open the housing of the device. Incorrect repairs
can constitute a considerable risk for the user. Should
the device become damaged, in particular the mains
supply cable, do not operate the device any longer, but
rather have it repaired by an expert. Check the mains
supply cable regularly for damage.
•	 For safety reasons a broken or damaged mains lead
may only be replaced by an equivalent lead from the
manufacturer, our customer service department or a
similary qualified person.
•	 If the device is not used for a longer period, remove
the plug connector from the plug socket or take out
the batteries.
These symbols may be found on the machine and are
intended to indicate the following:
The lightning symbol should advise the user of
parts in the inside of the device which carry
dangerously high voltage levels.
The symbol with an exclamation mark should
advise the user of important operation or
maintenance instructions in the accompa-
nying documentation.
Devices bearing this symbol work with a „class
1 laser“ for tracing the CD. The built-in safety
switches should prevent the user being expo-
sed to dangerous laser light, which is invisible
to the human eye, when the CD compartment
is opened.
Under no circumstances should these safety switches be
bypassed or manipulated, as this could result in a danger
of exposure to the laser light.
Children and Frail Individuals
•	 In order to ensure your children‘s safety, please keep
all packaging (plastic bags, boxes, polystyrene etc.)
out of their reach.
Caution! Do not allow small children to play with
the foil as there is a danger of suffocation!
•	 This device is not intended to be used by individuals
(including children) who have restricted physical,
sensory or mental abilities and/or insufficient knowl-
edge and/or experience, unless they are supervised
by an individual who is responsible for their safety or
have received instructions on how to use the device.
•	 Children should be supervised at all times in order to
ensure that they do not play with the device.

(CR 2025). Ensure correct polarity.
•	 Then close the battery lid.
If the remote control is not used for a prolonged period,
remove the batteries in order to prevent battery acid
Batteries are not to be disposed of together with

do not have any function.
Adjust the volume of the external device to a comfor-
table level.
USB Connexion (20)

the latest technical developments in the USB field.
Unfortunately the large number of different types of
USB storage media on offer today makes it impossible to
guarantee full compatibility with all USB storage media.
For this reason there may be problems in rare cases
with playing back from USB storage media. This is not a
malfunction of the device.

is too weak and there is noise on the station being
received, this lamp will flicker.
5.	 Try to improve reception by turning and bending or
twisting and altering the length of the antenna (27).
Where reception is bad we recommend switching
to FM.
