Using House Current (See Fig. B)
Connect the Sony AC power adaptor to the DC IN 4.5 V jack firmly, and plug it into a wall outlet. The power source will automatically switch to the external power source even if batteries are installed. Notes on the AC power adaptor â¢ When operating the unit with an external power source, do not remove the batteries. These batteries serve to backup the clock and standby settings. Since batteries discharge in this case as well, we recommend changing them about once a year. â¢ Before connecting and disconnecting the external power source plug, be sure to turn off the radio. Otherwise, âEâ may be displayed. When this occurs, turn on the radio so that âEâ disappears. â¢ When operating the unit with the internal batteries, remove the AC power adaptor from the wall outlet and the DC IN 4.5 V jack. Make sure that the plug of the external power source is disconnected before operating the unit. â¢ Use the recommended Sony AC power adaptor only. The polarity of the plugs of other manufacturers may be different. Failure to use the recommended AC power adaptor may cause the unit to malfunction.
â¢ Operate the unit only on 4.5 V DC. For battery operation, use two size AA (R6) batteries. For AC operation, use only the recommended AC power adaptor. â¢ The unit is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to a wall outlet, even if the unit itself has been turned off. â¢ The nameplate indicating operating voltage, etc. is located on the bottom exterior. â¢ Avoid exposure to temperature extremes, direct sunlight, moisture, sand, dust or mechanical shock. Never leave in a car parked under the sun. â¢ Should any solid object or liquid fall into the unit, disconnect the AC power adaptor and remove the batteries, and have the unit checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further. Make sure that no liquid or foreign material enters the DC IN 4.5 V jack of the unit. This may lead to the malfunction of the unit. â¢ In vehicles or buildings, radio reception may be difficult or subject to interference. Try listening near a window.
