Never operate the VTR immediately after moving it from a
cold location to a warm location. Leave it for TWO TO
THREE hours without operating it. When the VTR is exposed
to such a change in temperature, moisture may condense on
the cylinder inside of the VTR - one of its most crucial internal
parts. If moisture condensation occurs inside the VTR, the
cassette tape may stick to the surface of the cylinder causing
damage to the tape itself and the video head.
DON’T obstruct the ventilation openings of the equipment
with items such as newspaper, tablecloths, curtains, etc.
Overheating will cause damage and shorten the life of the

Preparing your Remote Control
Connecting your VTR
The Remote Control handset is needed to operate your new Toshiba video recorder. If used correctly, it should give years of
trouble-free use. Please take good care of it, always observing the correct polarities when replacing the batteries.
You must take into account various factors when connecting audio or video system :
• Types of connectors available on your systems
• Systems connected permanently to the VTR (satellite receiver for example) or temporarily (camcoder for example)
Batteries:
Deciding how to connect your VTR
Carefully open the battery compartment lid on
the rear of the Remote Control by gently pushing
on the arrow and sliding in that direction.

Programme VPS/PDC is a system of telling the VTR when a
programme actually starts. Typically, when you want to record a
programme you will tell the VTR 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 VTR will wait
until the signal is sent to confirm the programme is starting and the
VTR will record the programme even if it is two or more, hours late.

The tracking bar disappears when you release the button.
As each VTR is different, slight adjustments need to be made in the
way the tape is read. This is called ‘Tracking’. When playback starts
the video recorder automatically adjusts the Tracking to obtain the
best possible picture and sound; Digital Auto Tracking. The “AUTO”
indicator will flash while this adjustment takes place and the
playback picture and sound may be distorted. The VTR will
automatically adjust the Tracking as best it can. If you playback
rented tapes or tapes recorded on other machines, you may
occasionally find that the Digital Auto Tracking is not able to
improve the picture sufficiently. In these instances you will need to
adjust the Tracking manually.
With a tape in and playing, hold down either the TRK (i or j)
button on the remote control until the best possible picture and
sound is obtained
If the tape is old or worm, it may be impossible to improve the picture
performance. if you press the PAUSE/STILL button the image may
shimmer. This can also be reduced by adjusting the Tracking.

PROBLEM SOLVING
For your guidance,
Specifications and Accessories
before calling for help...
SYSTEM
Before contacting the after-sales service, perform the following simple checks.
Problem and Solutions
No power...
Check that the power plug is connected to a wall
outlet.
have you pressed the VTR ON/STANDBY button?
You cannot insert a video cassette...
A video cassette can only be inserted with the window
side up and the safety tab facing you.
The television programme was not recorded...
Check the VTR aerial connections.
Is the VTR tuner properly set?
Check if the safety tab is intact on the cassette.
Timer recording was unsuccessful...
Was the two TIMER buttons pressed to activate the
timer?
Re-check the recording start/stop time settings.
If there was a power failure or interruption during
timer recording, the recording will have been
cancelled.
No playback picture or the picture is distorted...
Check to see if you are using a prerecorded tape.
You cannot see normal broadcasts...

Check the TV/VTR aerial connections.
PROBLEM
SOLVING
GLOSSARY
When the PAUSE/STILL (❙❙) button is pressed
during playback, the still picture has severe
“noise bars” streaks...
A still picture may have “noise bars”, depending on
the condition of the tape.Press the TRK (i or j)
buttons during SLOW motion to minimize this effect.
Video Head Cleaning...
If poor pictures appear on a variety of cassette, the
video heads may need cleaning. This is not a common
problem and unless it appears, the heads should not
be cleaned. When cleaning the video heads, read all
instruction provided with the head cleaning as it can
permanently damage the video heads.
If when tuning in your TV to the VTR test pattern
your TV does not find the test pattern or the
pattern when found suffers from interference, it
may be due to the VTR output channel clashing
with the normal TV transmissions in your area.
To prevent this you will need to change the VTR
output channel in the following way...
1. Remove the aerial input plug from the socket
