DANGER
This symbol is intended to alert you to the
presence of dangerous voltage within the
product.
Thank you for purchasing a Samsung Video Cassette Recorder (VCR).
Your Owner’s Instructions contain much valuable information on setting up and
using your VCR. Please take the time to read them as they will help you take full
advantage of your VCR’s features.
The instructions in this manual are for models, SV-645B, SV-643B and SV-640B.
Before you start reading this manual please check your model number.
It is displayed on the rear of the VCR.
IMPORTANT NOTE
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a
moulded plug incorporating a fuse. The value of the fuse is
indicated on the pin face of the plug. If it requires
replacing, a fuse approved to BS1362 of the same rating
must be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted if the cover
is detachable. If a replacement fuse cover is required, it
must be of the same colour as the pin face of the plug.
Replacement covers are available from your dealer.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your
house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power
point, you should obtain a suitable safety approved
extension lead or consult your dealer for assistance.
However, if there is no alternative to cutting off the plug,
remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug. Do
not connect the plug to a mains socket, as there is a risk of
shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code: BLUE = NEUTRAL
BROWN = LIVE
As these colours may not correspond with the coloured
markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as
follows: The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the
terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or
BLACK. The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to
the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured BROWN
or RED.
- ★(SV-645B): Exceptions only for a certain model, for example SV-645B.
CAUTION
This symbol is intended to alert you to the
presence of important instructions
accompanying the product.
- Gray shaded areas marked with a star indicate instructions that are
only relevant to one model.

Programme VPS/PDC is a system of telling the VCR when a
programme actually starts. Typically, when you want to record a
programme you will tell the VCR to start recording, probably, five
minutes before the advertised starting time of the programme and
to finish ten minutes or so after the programme is due to finish. So
even if the programme starts early or finishes late you will normally
still get to see what you wanted to record. However when live
programmes over-run or the day’s television schedule is changed
from that advertised, you may miss the desired programme which
may have been delayed or even cancelled. With VPS/PDC the VCR
will wait until the signal is sent to confirm the programme is
starting and the VCR will record the programme even if it is two or
more, hours late.
