Caution and Care
WHAT IS CONDENSATION?
1. When a very cold drink is poured into a glass, the water droplets which form on the outer surface of the glass are an example of
condensation.
2. If the VCR is exposed to a rapid increase in temperature (such as warming it in a cold room or after transporting it from a cold
location to a warm one) condensation may form on the tape transport mechanism inside the VCR. By heating the inside of the
VCR, it can dry up the moisture and prevent damage to the VCR or video tape from condensation. To do this, plug the VCR in
and switch the VCR POWER to ON. Leave the VCR on for at least 2 hours before using it for recording or playback.
CONDENSATION IS LIKELY TO OCCUR WHEN:
1. The VCR is moved inside from outdoors or from a cold room to a warm one.
2. A cold room is heated quickly.
3. Humidity is high.
Note
•
Avoid using the VCR where cold air (e.g., from an air conditioner) will blow directly on it.
Never place anything containing water on top of the VCR; (e.g., vases, cups, etc.).
Heavy objects (e.g., TV) should never be placed on the VCR
NEVER TOUCH OR INSERT ANY OBJECT INSIDE THE VCR
Touching the inside of the cabinet or inserting foreign objects of any kind not only creates a safety hazard but can also cause
extensive damage.
PROTECT THE POWER CORD
Damage to the power cord may cause fire or shock hazard. When unplugging the power cord, hold it by the plug only and pull out
carefully.
UNPLUG THE POWER CORD DURING A LONG ABSENCE
Turn the power off and unplug the power cord during a long absence.
MAINTAIN GOOD VENTILATION
Do not obstruct the ventilation holes on the VCR. For maximum ventilation, place the unit on a hard level surface only, and ensure it
is not covered during use.
WHEN NOT IN USE
When you finish operating the VCR, always unload the cassette and turn the VCR off.
CABINET CARE
Never use petroleum-based cleaners. Clean with a soft cloth moistened with soap and water and wipe dry. PVC cables or leads
should not be left in contact with the cabinet surface for long periods.
INSTALLATION LOCATION
For excellent performance and lasting reliability, install in a location that is:
1. Well ventilated, out of direct sunlight and away from direct heat.
2. A solid, vibration-free surface.
3. Free from high humidity, excessive dust and away from magnetic fields.
Note Never move the VCR without first removing the tape.
CARE OF THE VIDEO CASSETTE TAPES
• Avoid vibration or shock.
• Do not place near a strong magnetic field (e.g., a motor, transformer or magnet).
• Never place or store in direct sunlight.
• Avoid dusty places.
• Place the cassette in its case and store vertically.
• Never store tape in high humidity.
WARNING:
To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this apparatus to rain or moisture.

Note
•
The index signal may be difficult to locate in some recording
conditions.
Info. How to count index number
• Index number is the count from the present position. The
index number of one alarm recording before the present
position is “-1”. One after is “+1”.
• Maximum count is ±255 alarm recordings.
An index mark is written on a tape at each hour (1:00, 2:00
and so on) during recording. The time date search cannot
be resumed if the index mark of the hour (set in step 3) is
not recorded on a tape.
Example: When the VCR recorded from 8:15 to 17:30 on a
tape, only pictures recorded between 9:00 and 17:30 can be
found using the time date search.
The time date search may not function correctly, if you use a
tape with a poor recording quality or with alarm recordings
recorded at several recording modes.
The time date search will not function when using a tape
recorded with other VCRs or a tape recorded without the
current day and time.
Info.
•
When the desired part of the tape is not found in the
selected direction, the VCR automatically searches in the
opposite direction.

Tape/deck trouble
First, check the cassette. If there seems to be nothing wrong with
the cassette, try the recording operation again. If the indicator

a new one and try the operation again. If this does not clear the
indicator, unplug the power cord and contact your dealer.

indicator on the fluorescent display on
screen turns off.
When the tape ends
When the tape reaches its end during recording, “End” illuminates on the fluorescent display and “TAPE END” illuminates on screen.
The warning indicators will not illuminate, if TAPE END in FIRST TIME SET UP menu is set to REPEAT, ALARM•PROT (when no
alarm recording is made) or REWIND.
Lack of video signal input
The indicator “NO SIGNAL” appears on screen and “noSIg” flashes on the fluorescent display when the VCR cannot get any video
input signal during recording. The video input signal will not be obtained in case of any malfunction such as a broken video cable or
POWER to the camera is turned off.
About fouling of the head (Clogged head)
When CLOG DETECT of the RECORDING SET UP menu is set to ON, the VCR automatically remove any particles that may
accumulate on the heads during time-lapse recording mode. If it cannot be entirely removed, “CLOg” flashes on the fluorescent
display. If so, follow the remedy of “CLOg” in the above chart.
