Video Cassette Tape Information
This VCR will operate with any cassette that has the VHS mark. For best results, we recommend the use of high-quality video
cassette. Do not use poor quality or damaged tapes.
Precautions:
• Avoid Moisture. Moisture condensation may occur on the tape
if it is moved from a cold location to a warm location or visa
versa, Before using a tape with these conditions, to avoid
damage of the tape and your VCR, wait until the tape is at
room temperature and the moisture has evaporated.
• Avoid extreme heat, high humidity and magnetic fields.
• Do not tamper with the cassette mechanism.
• Do not touch the tape with your fingers.
Erase Prevention:
You can prevent accidental
erasing of a recording by
breaking off the tab on
the back edge of the
cassette.
Inserting a Cassette:
Insert the cassette in the direction as shown. Push in gently,
but continuously, on the center-back of the cassette until it is
drawn into the VCR. The VCR will automatically turn ON.
Removing a Cassette:
1. In the stop mode, press the “EJECT” button on the remote
control or press the “STOP/EJECT” button on the VCR.
The cassette will be ejected.
2. Pull the cassette out of the cassette compartment.

Programming and Setup
To prevent excessive drain on your vehicles battery, the
MovievisionTM system will shut down 20 minutes after you turn the
ignition key to the “OFF” position.
WARNING! You must eject the tape before leaving the
vehicle for extended periods of time. DO NOT leave a
tape in the VCR! Damage to the tape and the VCR will
occur. This damage is not covered by any warranty.
VCR Tape Playback
1. Turn “ON” the ignition switch and power will be applied
to the MovievisionTM system.
2. Release the viewing screen from it’s folded and locked
position in the viewing pod.
3. Point the remote at the viewing screen and press “POWER”
or press “POWER” on the front panel of the VCR.
4. Insert a VHS tape into the tape slot of the VCR. Push the
tape case all the way in until the outer edge of the tape is
flush with the front panel of the VCR. The tape mechanism will draw the tape in to the play position. The tape
will automatically go to play mode.
5. To stop playback, press “STOP”.
CAUTION! Do not push the tape in further than needed. Once
the outer edge of the tape case is flush with the front panel
let go of the tape! The mechanism will do the rest! Forcing
the tape in will result in damage to the mechanism and force
premature service.
Manual Tracking
For best picture quality, the VCR video head must be aligned
with the recorded track on the tape; this alignment is called
tracking. Videocassettes recorded on other VCRs and videocassettes with copy protection may require some manual
adjustment.
To adjust manually, press “TRK” up or down as necessary
until the best picture possible is achieved.
Note 1: Picture distortion often occurs at the beginning of a
tape. Let the tape play for a moment to see if the distortion
clears.
Note 2: If manual tracking adjustments do not produce a
clear picture, there may be a problem with the videotape.

7. Transmitter Frequency Selection:
The MovievisionTM viewing screen transmits a signal that
is received by the MovievisionTM headphones and can also
be received by the vehicle’s car radio. There are 3 frequencies available for use but only one can be used at a
time. When you are listening to a movie using the wireless
MovievisionTM headphones, it is possible that you could
travel through an area where interference between the
screen transmitter and the headphone receiver is at an unacceptable level. If this occurs, you can use the 3 position
frequency switch located in the roof housing to select a
different frequency that may have less or no interference.
Each time you change the transmitting frequency, the
headphone/car radio receiver will have to be re-tuned to
the new frequency. The 3 frequencies available for use are
89.7mhz, 90.1mhz or 90.5mhz. (For further information
on headphone tuning, consult the “Headphone Operation”
section of this manual)
Car Radio Interface:
The signal transmitted from the MovievisionTM screen can
be received by the existing FM car radio. This
listening mode provides a much higher quality of sound for
all. To listen to the MovievisionTM signal through the vehicle
stereo system, repeat the following procedures;
A. Turn “ON” the MovievisionTM system and insert a tape or
attach an auxiliary signal source to view on the screen.
B. Turn “ON” the FM radio in your vehicle and tune the
radio to one of the 3 frequencies transmitted by the
MovievisionTM system. (89.7mhz - 90.1mhz - 90.5mhz)
C. Adjust the volume and tonal qualities to suit your listening taste.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Servicing:
Should your MovievisionTM VCR become inoperative, do not
try to correct the problem by yourself. There are no user
serviceable parts inside. Remove the unit from the vehicle
and take it to an authorized MovievisionTM service facility.
Cabinet Cleaning:
The front panel of the MovievisionTM VCR can be cleaned
with a soft cloth that has been immersed in luke warm
water and wrung dry. Never use alcohol or solvents of any
kind to clean your MovievisionTM VCR. Damage will result.
Screen Maintenance:
During the normal course of use, the plastic housing parts
will get dirty, dusty and the viewing screen will get finger
prints on it. The viewing screen and related plastic housing
parts can be safely cleaned using a dampened soft cotton
cloth with a small amount of dish washing soap rubbed into
it. An overly wet cloth that has too much soap in it will
cause you trouble. Repeat the following procedures to correctly clean the viewing screen and related plastic parts.
A. Completely soak a soft cotton cloth and rub a small
amount of dish washing soap into it.
B. Twist the cloth tightly and wring out as much moisture as
possible
C. Lightly, rub the cloth on the viewing screen and related
plastic parts to remove the dust, dirt and fingerprints.
D. Wipe off the excess soap residue with a clean dampened
cloth and let air dry.
WARNING!
• Do not rub the viewing screen dry.
• Do not rub hard on the viewing screen as you will scratch
it and or damage the screen.
• Do not rub on the screen in circular motions.
• Do not rub the screen with your fingers to clean it.
• Do not use ANY chemicals on the viewing screen or related
plastic parts such as glass cleaners,furniture polish, specialized
automotive cleaners, rubbing alcohol, thinners or solvents.
12
VCR Head Cleaning:
The use of poor quality or old worn tapes can still leave
deposits on the tape head preventing high picture and sound
quality. If a streaky or snowy picture (or no picture at all)
appears during “playback”, the heads of your VCR may need
to be cleaned.
1. Visit your local audio/video store and purchase a good
quality VHS head cleaner and follow the directions supplied to clean the heads.
2. If a commercial grade video head cleaner does not solve
the picture quality problem, your heads may need professional cleaning. Consult your local video repair center
for professional service.
When using head cleaning cassette, read all instructions
carefully; incorrect head cleaning can permanently damage the video heads.
DO NOT INSERT ANY OBJECTS INTO THE CABINET SLOTS;
CONTACT WITH A VOLTAGE POINT INSIDE THE VCR CAN
CAUSE DANGEROUS SHOCK OR MAY SHORT OUT PARTS
AND CAUSE FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK.
Headphone Maintenance:
There are no user serviceable parts in the headphones
(Except the batteries) Do not disassemble the
headphones for any reason. Replace the batteries with high
quality Alkaline “AAA” batteries as needed.
