Volume Turned Low
Check the volume level by turning the volume knob clockwise.
Line-In Switch Positioned To "Out"
If not using the auxiliary input, make sure the line-in switch, located on the back of the system near the auxiliary cable, is in the off position.
My Turntable Will Not Spin
The device will turn on, but the turntable will not activate/spin after moving the turntable arm to the right.
Make sure the function switch located on the front left of the device is set to phono. Then try moving the turntable arm to the right until you hear a click. Make sure the protective needle cover is removed.
My CD Does Not Play
After inserting a CD correctly, the CD will spin, but does not produce sound.
Make sure function switch on the front left of the device is set to CD. Ensure the surface of the CD is clean and has been inserted correctly with the label side facing up.
My Radio Does Not Play
After turning the device on, the radio will not tune or produce sound.
Function Switch In Wrong Mode
Make sure the function switch located on the front left of the device is on radio mode and select either AM or FM frequency via a small button located on the front of the device. When this button is pushed in, it is in FM mode, when it is pushed out it is in AM mode.
Antenna Is Obstructed/Detached
Ensure that the FM antenna, a thin wire located on the back of the device, is not blocked or detached. Move the wire until you hear clear reception. For AM reception, the unit is provided with a directional built-in ferrite antenna. Rotate the set to find the position in which the best reception is obtained. Do not connect the FM WIRE ANTENNA to any outside antenna.
