POWER SUPPLY
AC operation
n Before plugging the AC power cord into the AC socket, make sure the voltage
is correct and the Battery charger switch is set correctly: ALKALINE when 		
using no batteries or Alkaline batteries / CHARGE NiHM ON when using NiMH
rechargeable batteries.
n If you use Alkaline batteries in the radio and the Battery charger switch is on
ALKALINE, the batteries will be disconnected automatically when using AC power
supply.
n If you use rechargeable NiMH batteries in the radio and the Battery charger
switch is on CHARGE NIMH ON, the NiMH batteries will be charged automatically
when using AC power supply.
n AC power cord and plug storage is designed to store the cord and plug when the
radio is not in use or playing on batteries.
Note:
In order to disconnect the unit from the AC mains completely, the AC power cord should
be removed from the mains socket completely. The AC power cord shall remain readily
operable and should not be obstructed during intended use.
In case of malfunction due to electrostatic discharge or fast transient (burst), remove the
power supply and all the batteries then reinstall the batteries and reconnect the power
supply.
Battery operation
1. To open the battery compartment, first turn the battery cover fixtures counter
clockwise to loosen and pull down the battery cover.
2. This unit can be operated with either Alkaline batteries (6 x 1,5V type IEC LR20 /
UM-1 / D-size) or NiMH rechargeable batteries (6 x 1,2V PerfectPro Rechargeable
Accu, D size HR20 / 8000mAh). Set the Battery charger switch in the battery
compartment according to the battery type to be used (ALKALINE or CHARGE
NIMH ON).  
3. Insert the batteries with correct polarity as indicated in the battery compartment (+
and -). Close the battery cover and fasten the fixtures by turning clockwise. Close
well to prevent moist or dust from entering the compartment.
4. If the unit is not to be used for an extended period of time, it is recommended that

Page: 3
The approximate power level of the batteries is displayed in the LCD display of the radio.
When the power level is very low, the indication “Battery Low!” appears and the battery
symbol flashes on the display. The batteries should then be recharged or replaced soon
to continue normal operation of the radio.
When the rechargeable NiMH batteries are being charged. The battery symbol in the
LCD display will animate. The charging and animation will stop automatically when the
batteries are full.
Back-up batteries (2 x AA)
Back-up batteries are used to back up the time memory when no 6 x D battery power
is used. It is necessary to insert back up batteries (2 x AA size / UM-3) for time memory
back up if you use AC power supply only. Without the back up batteries time memory
will be lost if you remove the AC power cord from AC socket or during power failure. The
back up batteries will not be charged and should be replaced after 1 year.
Replacing the fuse of the Battery Charger
The battery charger uses a fuse as a safety device, which protects the radio from
over current or excessive surging during the charging process. The fuse will blow if
something goes wrong with the charger or the battery (for example, if the battery has
been damaged). In case the charger refuses to charge the battery or the radio becomes
inoperative with batteries, you should check and replace the battery and/or the fuse.
1. Turn off the radio and unplug the AC power cord from the mains power socket.
2. To open the battery compartment, turn the battery cover fixtures counter clockwise
to loosen and pull down the battery cover.
3. Check the batteries carefully and make sure all of them are installed with correct
polarity (+ and -) and replace the batteries if there is any damage. Refer
to the section of “IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON CHARGING AND USING
RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES” for more detailed advises.
4. Locate the fuse holder in the battery compartment. The cover of the fuse holder has
the word “FUSE” on it.
5. To remove the fuse cover, use a slot head screwdriver and turn the screwdriver
counter clockwise while pressing down the fuse cover. The fuse cover should be
turned only when it is pressed down. Do not use too much force when turning the
fuse cover as this can cause damage.
6. Replace the blown fuse with an identical new one. The fuse rating is printed beside
the fuse holder (T4AL 250V). Do not use fuse of any other type.  
7. Replace the fuse cover using a slot head screwdriver. Turn the screwdriver 		
clockwise carefully while pressing down the fuse cover.
Note:
l If the new fuse blows again as soon as the radio is connected to AC power or when
you start using the radio, it indicates a problem with either the radio or the battery.
Have them checked at a dealer or qualified service person.
l The fuse also protects Alkaline batteries from over current.
Warning:
Danger of explosion if a battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace only with the same or
equivalent type.
Always make sure the Battery charger switch is set to the correct position.
An Alkaline battery is not rechargeable. Never attempt charging Alkaline batteries.
Do not mix up different battery types.
Do not mix up charged and uncharged batteries.
Do not expose the batteries to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire or the like.
Batteries should not be disposed of by incineration and with household waste.
Disposable batteries should be taken to a suitable recycling centre if possible.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON CHARGING AND USING RECHARGEABLE
BATTERIES
1. Recharge the batteries in any case at least every 2 months.
2. Make sure the Battery charger switch next the battery compartment is set to the
“CHARGE NiMH ON” position.
3. Put the batteries in the compartment whilst paying attention to the correct
polarity of the batteries (+ and -).
4. First use: Charge new batteries in one continuous, uninterrupted, charge until
they are full. This first charge may take longer than normal. For longer battery life it
is advised to always recharge in one continuous, uninterrupted charge until batteries
are full and to not recharge again whilst the batteries are still full.
5. New batteries will only reach their full capacity after some time of use (several
charge – discharge cycles).
6. Leave the complete group of batteries in place inside the radio and do not use these
batteries or a few of them for other purposes. This will result in a mix of (fully)
charged and (partly) empty batteries. This can seriously damage the batteries and
radio when recharged.
7. It is advised to only charge batteries at room temperatures between 5 degrees C –
35 degrees C. In lower or higher temperatures full charge cannot be achieved.
