WATER & MOISTURE - Do not use this DVD-VCR near water—for example, near a bathtub, wash bowl, kitchen
sink, laundry tub, in a wet basement, near a swimming pool or the like.
8.
ACCESSORIES - Do not place this DVD-VCR on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket or table. The DVD-VCR may
fall, causing serious injury to a child or adult, and serious damage to the unit. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod,
bracket or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the DVD-VCR. Any mounting of the unit should
follow the manufacturer’s instructions and should use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer.
8a.
An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces
may cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn.
9.
VENTILATION - Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation to ensure reliable operation of the
DVD-VCR and to protect it from overheating. These openings must not be blocked or covered. Never place your
VCR on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface, on or near a radiator or heat register. This DVD-VCR should not be
placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the

receptacles, and the point where they exit from the DVD-VCR.
12.
OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING - If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the DVD-VCR, be
sure the antenna or cable system is grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static
charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984, provides information with respect to
proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit,
size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode. See figure below.

Pour éviter les incendis, risque de chocs, ou
interférences fâcheuses, employer seulement les
accessoires recommandés. Pour éviter les chocs
électriques, ne pas employer cette prise (polarisée)
avec une rallonge, une prise de courant ou une
autre sortie de courant à moins que les lames
peuvent être insérées à fond pour l’exposition des
lames. Pour réduire les risques de chocs
électriques, ne pas retirer le couvercle ou l'arrière
du module. Il n'y a pas de pièce utilisable à
l'intérieur. Ne faire effectuer l'entretien que par un

LIGHTNING - For added protection of this DVD-VCR during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and
unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This
will prevent damage to the DVD-VCR due to lightning and power line surges.
14.
POWER LINES - An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other
electric light or power circuits, where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside
antenna system extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with
them might be fatal.
15.
OVERLOADING - Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords as this can result in the risk of fire or electric
shock.
16.
OBJECTS AND LIQUIDS - Never push objects of any kind into this DVD-VCR through openings as they may touch
dangerous voltage points or short out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquids of any
kind onto the unit. Should spillage occur, unplug the DVD-VCR and have it checked by a technician before use.
17.
SERVICING - Do not attempt to service this DVD-VCR yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to
a dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
18.
DAMAGE REQUIRING SERVICE - Unplug this DVD-VCR from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified
service personnel under the following conditions:
a.
b.
c.
d.
e.
f.
19.
When the power supply cord or plug is damaged.
If any liquid has been spilled onto or objects have fallen into the DVD-VCR.
If the DVD-VCR has been exposed to rain or water.
If the DVD-VCR does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls
that are covered by the operating instructions. Improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and
will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the DVD-VCR to its normal operation.
If the DVD-VCR has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
When the DVD-VCR exhibits a distinct change in performance—this indicates a need for service.
REPLACEMENT PARTS - When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used
replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or those having the same characteristics as the original part.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock or other hazards.

Still Mode
Audio Language
GB
GB
The Still Mode feature lets you set the default method of freezing a
single image on the screen during DVD playback.
How it Works
Because each frame of a standard NTSC video image is made up of
two fields (odd and even scan lines), there are two ways to freeze
an image during DVD playback:
• Frame - Freezes both the odd and even scan lines that make up a
single frame. Excellent for graphic detail, but may cause jitter in
high motion scenes.
• Field - Doubles either the odd or the even scan lines. Prevents
jitter, but at the sacrifice of fine detail.

Auto mode.
• Field – Select if the screen shakes in Auto mode.
Black Level
The Black Level feature adjusts the reference level of black in the
video signal to one of two choices:
• High - Standard NTSC black level. Yields consistent contrast
through all sources.
• Low - Enhanced black level, for increased contrast during DVD
playback.

Timer Recording Errors/Solutions
GB
GB
Complete Program Record, or CPR, helps to ensure you won’t run
out of tape before your Timer Recording is complete. When Auto is
selected, the Timer event begins to record in SP; the DVD-VCR
then calculates how much time is remaining on the tape and adjusts
the record speed to SLP if necessary to fit the entire event. If there
is not enough tape to record the entire event, the DVD-VCR will
record in SLP until the end of the tape is reached.
If there is a problem with your Timer Recording, the Timer icon
will flash on the Front Panel Display and an error message will
appear on the On-Screen Display. Once you correct the error, the
event will begin if there is still time remaining for that event. You
can also clear the event in the Event Summary screen.
