Thank you for having the manual I needed for an older model Aiwa stero I had found on Ebay --- I wanted the Aiwa because I had tapes and cd's but I did not have a manual as to how to operate the system... I found what I needed and it has enabled me to set the system up for my enjoyment.
The manual was very helpfull, it answerdes all my questions, and i was surprized to find the original manual on this site! Big thumbs uP:)

This unit requires very little attention, but you will be able to extend the life of the unit if you follow the instructions below.
To keep the tape clean
To clean the head
â¢ Always store the cassettes to their storage cases after use. â¢ Do not store cassettes in the following places: â Subject to direct sunlight â With high humidity â At extremely hot temperatures â¢ Clean the head after every 10 hours of use using a wet-type head cleaning tape (available at an audio store). When the head becomes dirty, you may realize the following symptoms: â Sound quality is reduced. â Sound level decreases. â Sound drops out. â¢ Do not play dirty or dusty tapes. â¢ Do not touch the highly-polished head with any metallic or magnetic tools.
â¢ Do not play the cassettes with peeling labels; otherwise, they can damage the unit. â¢ Tighten tapes to remove slack since loose tape may become entangled with the mechanism. â¢ Do not leave a cassette in the cassette compartment after use, as the tape may become slack.
