Have owned one for 20 years, still doing the job perfectly on my Alpine AL81 deck.

Some use advice (courtesy of Web Police user on http://www.tapeheads.net/showthread.php?t=3106)
1. Turn the volume controls all the way to zero.
2. Insert the Head Demagnetizer unit in to your deck as you would any normal tape. LED must be facing out towards you.
3. Press the Play mode on your deck and let run till the LED light goes out or 10 seconds have elapsed.
4. Press the stop button and eject the Head Demagnetizer.
Helpful Hints.
1. Use your Demagnetizer after 25 hours of play.
2. If you cannot operate your controls without the power turned on, be sure to check that all speaker/headphone volume controls are set to zero or off.
3. When the LED light glows dimly, it is time to replace the battery. To replace the battery turn the unit over and slide the battery cover off. Replace only with PX675 1.5V Battery. The Positive(+) should face you when inserting the new battery.
Rarely when using mine does the LED go out. I just let it go for 10 seconds and press the stop button.
