  • Because the thickness of a cassette tape with the total playback time of over 60 minutes (C-60) are too thin, we suggest that you do not use any of them to avoid having tapes being tangled.
  • To achieve better sound quality, periodically clean the tape head using a cotton stick with colorless alcohol (once per month).
  • If a tape is too loose, fasten it to reel by winding with objects like a pencil.
  • Because dust or foreign objects on a cassette tape may damage the playback head, always store tapes in their cases when not in use.
  • Make sure cassette tapes are kept away from magnetic devices (TV, stereo system, etc) in order to achieve better sound quality.
  • Be certain that no objects or substances other than cassette tapes are inserted into the cassette tape player.
  • Because tape media can be distorted when exposed to direct sunlight, Do not leave cassette tapes on the seats, dashboard or near the back windshield.
