Cleaning the deck

Dip the cotton swab into the appropriate cleaning fluid (most

cleaning kits contain two types of cleaning fluid; one for metal

parts and one for rubber and plastic pans) and wipe the surface

of the heads, tape guides, capstans and pinch rollers.

After cleaning, wipe with a dry cotton swab.

Use your stereo cassette deck only after the parts have com-

pletely dried.
