SAFETY INFORMATION
Location and Handling
• Do not cover or place the VCR/DVD in enclosed spaces to
prevent excessive temperature build up.
• Do not place the VCR/DVD in direct sunlight, or near heat
sources.
• Keep the VCR/DVD away from strong magnetic objects.
• Do not place any object containing water or other liquids on
the VCR/DVD. In the event that liquid should enter the cabinet, unplug the VCR/DVD immediately and contact the
retailer or service centre approved by SHARP immediately.
• Do not remove the VCR/DVD cabinet. Touching parts inside
the cabinet could result in electric shock and/ or damage to
the VCR/DVD. For service and adjustment inside the cabinet, call a qualified dealer or service centre approved by
SHARP.
• Depending on the use environment, the temperature of the
VCR/DVD may increase slightly. This is not a malfunction.
NOTES:
• Remember to read the instructions along with the video
head cleaner before use.
• Clean video heads only when problems occur.
If there is Noise Interference on the TV While a
Broadcast is being Received
Depending on the reception condition of the TV, interference
may appear on the TV monitor while you watch a TV broadcast and the VCR/DVD is left on. This is not a malfunction of
the VCR/DVD or the TV. To watch a TV broadcast, turn off
the VCR/DVD.
Service
Do not attempt to service this VCR/DVD yourself. Please
refer any service to the nearest service centre approved by
SHARP.
Copyright
When the VCR/DVD is not being used, switch the VCR/DVD
to the Standby mode.
When left unused for a long period of time, the VCR/DVD
should be unplugged from the household AC outlet.
Copyright may exist in material you with to record.
Copying such material without permission of the relevant
licensee(s) or owner(s) of the copyright is prohibited by law.
SHARP is not in a position to authorize the recording of
copyright works and nothing in this manual should be read or
implied as giving that authority.
No Fingers or Other Objects Inside
Copy Protection
Do not put your fingers or objects on the disc tray or the cassette compartment.
This VCR/DVD supports Macrovision copy protection. On
DVDs that include a copy protection code, if the contents of
the DVD are copied using a VCR, the copy protection code
prevents the videotape copy from playing normally.
Nonuse Periods
Stacking
Place the VCR/DVD in a horizontal position, and do not place
anything heavy on it.
Condensation
Moisture may form inside the VCR/DVD under the following
conditions:
• immediately after a heater has been turned on.
• in a steamy or very humid room.
• when the VCR/DVD is suddenly moved from a cold environment to a warm one.
If moisture forms inside this VCR/DVD, it may not operate
properly or damage the video cassette.
In this case, turn on the power and wait for more than two
hours for the moisture to evaporate.
Cleaning
Unplug your VCR/DVD before cleaning. Use a damp cloth for
cleaning. Do not use cleaning fluids or aerosols which could
enter the VCR/DVD and cause damage, fire, or electrical
shock. These substances may also deteriorate the finish of
your VCR/DVD.
Auto Head Cleaning
• Automatically cleans video heads as you insert or remove a
cassette, so you can see a clear picture.
• Playback picture may become blurred or interrupted while
the TV program reception is clear. Dirt accumulated on the
video heads after a long period of use, or the usage of
rental or worn tapes can cause this problem. If a streaky or
snowy picture appears during playback, the video heads in
your VCR/DVD may need to be cleaned.
Apparatus Claims of U.S.Patent Nos. 4,631,603,
4,577,216, 4,819,098 and 4,907,093 licensed for limited
viewing uses only.

that is protected by method claims of certain U.S. patents
and other intellectual property rights owned by Macrovision

viewing uses only unless otherwise authorised by

Recommended Measures for Optimum Picture
Excellence
The VCR/DVD is a precision device that is constructed using
extremely accurate technology.
Soiling or friction affecting the pickup lens or disc drive can
impair the image quality. At the worst, neither video nor audio
will be played back. Contact your authorized Sharp supplier
for details.
Do not attempt to clean the pickup lens yourself.
1. Please visit your local Audio/Video store and purchase a
good quality VHS Video Head Cleaner.

Digital Connection to an MD to Record a CD
Some Audio CDs have a short silent section between musical tracks. When sound from discs such as these is digitally
recorded by connecting the VCR/DVD directly to a digital recorder (such as an MD recorder), the music may be recorded
continuously and track numbers may be lost.
C Digital Connection to Audio Equipment or MD Recorder without a Dolby Digital Decoder
• Audio CD
Audio CDs can be transferred digitally to other equipment such as an MD recorder, play the disc as you would normally with
the audio mode set to “L+R” and use the connection shown above. Audio CDs recorded in the DTS format cannot be transferred digitally or via analogue.
• DVD
DVDs recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1 channel surround sound, DTS or MPEG Audio cannot be connected digitally to external
recording equipment such as an MD recorder.
The audio source on a disc in a Dolby Digital 5.1 channel surround format cannot be recorded as digital sound by an MD
recorder.
It may be possible to record “DOLBY DIGITAL” or MPEG Audio via a digital connection if the VCR/DVD output is set to
“DPCM” (see page 27 “Audio Settings”). Analogue recording is possible but not for DTS recorded audio.
