Cleaning the Unit
If the faceplate of this unit is stained, wipe it
with a dry soft cloth such as a silicon cloth.
If the faceplate is stained badly, wipe the
stain off with a cloth moistened with neutral
cleaner, then wipe neutral detergent off.
Applying spray cleaner directly to the unit
may affect its mechanical parts. Wiping the
faceplate with a hard cloth or using a volatile
liquid such as thinner or alcohol may scratch
the surface or erases characters.
Cleaning the CD Slot
As dust tends to accumulate in the CD slot,
clean it every once in a while. Your CDs can
get scratched if you put them in a dusty CD
Right after you turn on the car heater in cold
weather, dew or condensation may form on
the lens in the CD player of the unit. Called
lens fogging, CDs may be impossible to play.
In such a situation, remove the disc and wait
for the condensation to evaporate. If the unit
still does not operate normally after a while,
consult your Kenwood dealer.
Cleaning the Tape Head
After you have listened to many cassettes
over a long period of time, magnetic powder
from the tapes and dust accumulates on the
tape head, causing noise and a deterioration
in sound quality. Clean the tape head using a
cleaning tape or cleaning kit designed for use
in car audio systems.
Handling Cassette Tapes
· Do not play a cassette whose tape has gone
slack. In such a case, wind it tight using a
pencil or the like in one of the spools.
Playing slack cassette tapes can result in the
tape tangling around the capstan and/or
pinch rollers, causing trouble.
· Do not play a deformed cassette or one
whose label is starting to come off, as it can
cause the unit to malfunction.
· Do not leave tapes in hot places, such as on
dashboards and other spots exposed to
direct sunlight, or near heater outlets. They
can deform the cassette.
·Avoid using extremely long cassette tapes,
such as 100-minute-long tapes. Such tapes
are very thin, and can tangle easily around
the pinch rollers or other parts inside the
unit, causing unit failure.
· Remove a cassette tape from the unit when
not listening to it for a while. If you leave a
tape in the unit too long, it may stick to the
tape head and cause unit malfunction.
