Attention! The text in this document has been recognized automatically. To view the original document, you can use the "Original mode".
1. AVOID EXCESSIVE HEAT, HUMIDITY, DUST
Keep the unit away from locations where it is likely to
be exposed to high temperatures or humidity — such
as near radiators, stoves, etc. Also avoid locations
which are subject to excessive dust accumulation or
vibration which could cause mechanical damage.
2. AVOID PHYSICAL SHOCKS
Strong physical shocks to the unit can cause damage.
Handle it with care.
3. DO NOT OPEN THE CASE OR ATTEMPT
REPAIRS OR MODIFICATION YOURSELF
This product contains no user-serviceable parts. For
other than routine cleaning, refer maintenance to qualified
YAMAHA personnel. Opening the case and/or tamper
ing with the internal circuitry will void the warranty.
4. MAKE SURE POWER IS OFF BEFORE MAK
ING OR REMOVING CONNECTIONS
Always turn the power OFF prior to connecting or dis
connecting cables. This is important to prevent damage
to the unit itself as well as other connected equipment.
USE THE CORRECT POWER SUP-
The MT120S is sold with the appropriate power speci
fications for the local area (power supply voltage and
power consumption are listed on the bottom panel). If
you move to a different area that might have a different
AC mains voltage, however, be sure to check with your
nearest YAMAHA dealer before using your MT120S.
8. KEEP THE HEADS AND TAPE PATH CLEAN
To ensure consistent high performance and sound quality
from your MT120S, it is important to clean the head
and tape path regularly (ideally before each recording
session). To do this, use a cleaning kit specifically
designed for use with cassette tape equipment.
9. USE ONLY HIGH-QUALITY CHROME CAS
The MT120S is designed for use with Cr02 (chrome)
formulation tape, and will not provide proper performance
with any other type of tape. Always choose cassette
tapes from a reliable manufacturer.
5. HANDLE CABLES CAREFULLY
Always plug and unplug cables — including the AC
cord — by gripping the connector, not the cord.
6. CLEAN WITH A SOFT DRY CLOTH
Never use solvents such as benzine or thinner to clean
the unit. Wipe clean with a soft, dry cloth.
