Your ST7 will give you years of reliable service if you follow the simple rules given below: Location Do not expose it to the following conditions to avoid deformation, discoloration, or more serious damage.

Direct sunlight (e.g. near a window). High temperatures (e.g. near a heat source, outside, or in a car during the daytime).

Excessive humidity. Excessive dust. Strong vibration.

Power Supply Turn the power switch OFF when not in use. If you use an AC power adaptor, unplug the adaptor from the AC outlet if not to be used for an extended period of time.

Unplug the AC power adaptor during electric storms.

Avoid plugging the AC power adaptor into the same AC outlet as appliances with high power consumption, such as electric heaters or ovens. Also avoid using multi- plug adaptors since these can result in reduced sound quality and possibly dam- age.

Turn Power OFF When Making Connections To avoid damage to the Personal Studio and other devices to which it is connected (a sound system, for example), turn the power switches of all related devices OFF prior to connecting or disconnecting audio cables.

13

Handling and Transport Never apply excessive force to the controls, connectors or other parts.

Always unplug cables by gripping the plug firmly, not by pulling on the cable.

Disconnect all cables before moving the unit.

Physical shocks caused by dropping, bumping, or placing heavy objects on the unit can result in scratches and more serious damage.

Cleaning Clean the cabinet and panel with a dry soft cloth.

A slightly damp cloth may be used to remove stubborn grime and dirt.

Never use cleaners such as alcohol or thinner.

Avoid placing vinyl objects on top of the unit (vinyl can stick to and discolor the surface).

Electrical Interference This unit contains digital circuitry and may cause interference if placed too close to radio or television receivers. If this occurs, move it further away from the affected equipment.

YAMAHA is not responsible for damage caused by improper handling or opera- tion.

Power Supply The Personal Studio ST7 can be operated with battery or AC power. Always turn the power OFF when making AC power connections or replacing batteries.

Using a Power Adaptor

Please use the supplied power adaptor. *(adaptor not included in some countries)

1. Plug the DC output cable from the adaptor into the DC10-12V jack q on the top panel. (See the Illus. above)

2. Plug the AC adaptor into a convenient wall AC power socket.

When using an AC adaptor, use the supplied AC adaptorPA-1D to power the ST7. The use of an incompatible adaptor may result in irreparable damage, or cause fire. The use of an incompatible adaptor may also void the warranty. Please use caution.Using Batteries

1. Open the battery compartment, located on the back panel of the ST7.

2. Insert six AAA size 1.5V batteries taking careful note of the polarity markings as shown in the illustration above.

Place the batteries on top of the ribbon for easy removal at a later date.

3. Replace the battery compartment cover.

When the AC adaptor is connected, battery power is automatically disconnected. However, poor connection of the AC adaptor or power cable will result in power being drawn from the batteries.

It is recommended that batteries be replaced early. Run down batteries will result in the following: 1 Reverb does not function properly. 2 Earphone sound is unstable. 3 Noise becomes audible. When one of these symptoms appears, take note of the cautions below and replace the used batteries with a complete set of new batteries.

Make sure to follow polarity indications on the battery compartment when replacing batteries. Improper insertion may result in fire.

Always replace worn batteries with a complete set of new batteries. NEVER mix old and new batteries! Do not mix different types of batteries (alkaline, manganese), or batteries from different makers, or different battery types by the same maker. Doing so may result in fire!

To prevent possible damage to the unit due to battery leakage and unnecessary power drain, remove the batteries from the unit if it is not to be used for an extended period of time.

The AUX IN jack The ST7s AUX IN jack !2 can be used to connect an external stereo signal source to the ST7. Connecting a CD player, tape recorder, etc. to the AUX IN jack with an audio cable allows you to play along with an external audio source.

The AUX IN jacks !2 signal level is controlled by the AUX IN VOLUME o control.

The LINE OUT Jack The ST7s LINE OUT jack !3 delivers the stereo signal of the ST7 for connection to a stereo mixing console or tape recorder for listening by external speakers or recording.

Make sure that the power of the ST7 and any external equipment is turned OFF before making any connections. Also, set the volume of any external audio sources to the minimum level before connecting. A high volume setting could result in damage to the equipment, hearing impairments or electrical shock.

The AUX OUT jack signal must never be returned to the AUX IN jacks, either directly or through external equipment. Doing so will result in the production of feedback, and damage to the internal unit.
