PRECAUTIONS
CAUTION: Do not put your hand or other objects in the
cassette loading slot because of risk of injury or
accident. Be sure to keep small children away from the
VCR.
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR
ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS
APPLIANCE TO RAIN OR OTHER MOISTURE.
To avoid electrical shock, do not open the cabinet.
Refer servicing to qualified personnel only.
If the power supply cord (AC power cord) of this
appliance is damaged, it must be replaced. Return to
a SANYO Authorised Service Centre for replacement
of the cord.
Location
Moisture Condensation Problems
For safe operation and satisfactory performance of your
VCR, keep the following in mind when selecting a place
for its installation:
Cause:
When the VCR is first installed, moved from a cold area
to a warm area or placed in a location with high
humidity, dew (moisture) may form in the unit. The Dew
indicator (À) blinks. If you operate the VCR with
dew inside, damage may result.
œ Shield it from direct sunlight and keep it away from
sources of intense heat.
œ Avoid dusty or humid places.
œ Avoid places with insufficient ventilation for proper
heat dissipation. Do not block the ventilation holes of
the VCR. Do not place the unit on a carpet because
this will block the ventilation holes.
Prevention:
1 Make all necessary connections.
2 Plug the power cord into a 220 – 240 V AC outlet.
3 Do not operate the VCR for approximately 2 hours.
œ Install the VCR in a horizontal position only.
œ Avoid locations subject to strong vibrations.
œ Avoid moving the VCR between cold and hot
locations (see “Moisture Condensation Problems”,
this page).
When the VCR reaches room temperature, the Dew
indicator (À) will turn off and the VCR will be ready
to operate.
œ Do not place the VCR directly on top of the TV, as
this may cause playback or recording problems.
Power on/stand-by mode
Avoiding Electrical Shock and Fire
The power on/stand-by mode is selected by pressing
the STANDBY/ON button.
œ Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.
VCR display
œ Do not pull on the power cord when disconnecting it
from an AC wall outlet. Grasp it by the plug.
Stand-by mode
œ If any liquid is spilled on the VCR, unplug the power
cord immediately and have the unit inspected at a
factory-authorised service centre.
Power on mode
“Stand-by mode” is the condition in which only the time
is displayed.
œ Do not place anything directly on top of this VCR.
Do not forget that even in the stand-by mode there is an
electrical voltage inside the VCR as long as it is
connected to a wall socket.
Disconnect the power cord from the wall socket if the
VCR is not to be used for a long time.

VIDEO CASSETTE TAPES
Use only video cassette tapes bearing the w logo.
This VCR was primarily designed for use with E-180
cassette tapes, it is recommended to use E-180
standard grade VHS video cassette tapes for optimal
performance.
Loading
1 Place the cassette, label side up, in the loading slot.
Gently push the centre of the cassette until it is
loaded automatically.
Handling Cassette Tapes
The cassette tapes should always be stored vertically,
in their cases, away from high temperatures, magnetic
fields, direct sunlight, dirt, dust and locations subject to
mold formation.
Do not tamper with the cassette mechanism and never
touch the tape with your fingers.
ø The time display will switch to the reset counter
“0:00:00” display.
Protect the cassette tapes from shocks or strong
vibrations.
ø After the cassette tape is loaded, a mechanism
will operate for about 5 seconds to check that
the tape has been threaded correctly and the
cassette indicator “o” will blink during that
period.
To Protect your Recordings
After having recorded a tape, if you wish to keep the
recording, use a flathead screwdriver to break off the
erasure-prevention tab on the cassette.
ø When the cassette is loaded, if the tape has
been threaded correctly, the cassette indicator
“o” will light on the digital display.
To record again on a tape without erasure-prevention
tab, cover the hole with adhesive tape.
NOTE:
œ If you try to record on a cassette without
erasure-prevention tab, the VCR will eject the
cassette.
Unloading
1 In stop mode, press the EJECT button.
Erasure-prevention tab
ø The cassette is automatically ejected.
NOTES:
Precautions concerning the video
cassette tapes
œ Do not insert any object in the cassette loading slot,
as that may cause injury and damages to the VCR.
œ Do not use tapes that are damaged, tapes that have
been cut and repaired or tapes that have been
altered in any way.
œ If your hand gets stuck in the cassette loading slot,
unplug the power cord and consult the dealer where
the unit was bought. Do not forcibly pull the hand out
as that may cause severe injuries.
œ Some rewinders may entangle the tape, and
therefore their use is not recommended.
œ When tapes are recorded over and over again, the
recording quality will deteriorate. Refer to
“Concerning the Number of Times Tapes can be
Rerecorded on” on page 15, and replace the tape
with a new tape as required.

Correct tape thread check function
If the correct tape thread check function is on, after the
cassette tape is loaded, a mechanism will operate for
about 5 seconds to check that the tape has been
threaded (loaded) correctly and the cassette indicator
“o” will blink during that period. If the tape is not loaded
properly, the cassette will be ejected.
NOTES:
œ This function checks to make sure that the cassette
has been correctly loaded. It is recommended to use
this function to make sure the recordings are
conducted reliably.
œ If during the tape thread check operation, the REC,
PLAY or STOP button is pressed or if the SHUTTLE
ring is turned, the command will only be executed
after the tape thread has been checked. Only the
EJECT button will operate while the tape thread is
being checked.
