Adjusting
the
tracking
Although the VCR automatically
adjusts the tracking when playing a tape
(the tracking indicator _ flashes in the display window, then goes off),
distortion may occur if the tape was recorded in poor condition. In this case,
manually adjust the tracking.
Press the TRACKING +/ buttons on the VCR to
display the tracking meter The distortion should
disappear as you press one of the two buttons (the
indicator lights up). To resume automatic
tracking adjustment,
eject the tape and reinsert it.

About
Adaptive
Picture
Control
(APC)
Adaptive Picture Control (APC) automatically
improves recording and
playback quality by adjusting the VCR to the condition of the video heads
and tape. To maintain better picture quality, we recommend
that you set
APC to ON in the ADVANCED OPTIONS menu (with the APC indicator in
the display window lit).
APC playback
The APC function automatically works on all types of tapes, including rental
tapes and tapes that were not recorded with APC.
APC recording
Whenever you insert a tape and first start recording, the VCR adjusts to the
tape using the APC function (the APC indicator flashes rapidly). This
adjustment is retained tmtfl the tape is ejected.
Notes
• The auto tracking adjusm_ent cannot be used on tapes recorded in the LP mode on
other VCRs.
• The APC f\mction doesn't work if the tape speed is automatically changed fkom the
SP to EP mode during a timer recording, unless the tape has been recorded in the
EP mode with the APC f\mction.
• There is a delay of a few seconds befbre the VCR actually starts recording while the
VCR analyzes the tape. lb avoid the delay, first set the VCR to recording pause (the
APC indicator flashes slowly) and press @ REC to have the VCR analyze the tape.
After the APC indicator stops flashing, press |! PAUSE to start recording
immediately. If you press | | PAUSE befbre the APC indicator stops flashing, the
APC fkmction is canceled.
