Introduction
DVD Recorder
DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) is the new storage medium
that combines the convenience of the Compact Disc with
the latest advanced digital video technology.
DVD Video uses state-of-the-art MPEG2 data compression
technology to register an entire movie on a single 5-inch
disc. DVD’s variable bitrate compression, running at up to
9.8 Mbits/second, captures even the most complex
pictures in their original quality.
The crystal-clear digital pictures have a horizontal
resolution of over 500 lines, with 720 pixels (picture
elements) to each line.This resolution is more than double
that of VHS, superior to Laser Disc, and entirely
comparable with digital masters made in recording studios.
DVD recording is the next step in video technology.
DVD+ReWritable (DVD+RW) uses phase-change media,
the same technology that formed the basis for CDReWritable. A high-power laser is used to change the
reflectivity of the recording layer. This process can be
repeated more than a thousand times. DVD+Recordable
(DVD+R) uses discs based on an organic dye, a technology
pioneered with the successful CD-Recordable format, to
produce discs that keep your data for a lifetime.
Your DVD Recorder is a Recorder and player for digital
video discs, with a two-way compatibility to the
universal DVD Video standard. This means that:
- existing pre-recorded DVD Video discs can play on
your DVD Recorder and
- recordings, made on your DVD Recorder,
can play on most DVD Video players and DVD-ROM
drives.

DVD recorder
With it, you will be able to record TV programs or edit
and archive your own video camera recordings.
Superb digital picture and sound quality, quick access to
the tracks you have recorded and extensive playback
features contribute to a completely new video experience.
From now on you will enjoy full-length movies with true
cinema picture quality and stereo or Multi-channel sound
(depending on the disc and on your playback set-up).You
will find your Recorder remarkably easy to use, with the
on-screen display on your TV, the display on the DVD
recorder and remote control.
Cleaning discs
Some problems occur because the disc inside the
Recorder is dirty. To avoid these problems, clean your
discs regularly in the following way:
● When a disc becomes dirty, clean it with a cleaning
cloth. Wipe the disc in a straight line from the center
out to the edge.
Caution:
Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner,
commercially available cleaners, or anti-static
spray intended for analog discs.
Do not use commercially available cleaning discs to
clean the lens, as these discs may damage the
optical unit.
Remote control
Loading the batteries
1 Remove the battery compartment cover.
2 Insert two ‘AA’ (LR-6) batteries as indicated inside the
battery compartment.
3 Replace the cover.
Caution:
Do not mix old and new batteries. Never mix
different types of batteries (standard, alkaline,
etc.).This may reduce the lifetime of the batteries.

‘Connecting to a TV.’
Step 2: Connecting to a TV
This DVD Recorder is equipped with Directional
Correlational Deinterlacing, known as DCDi™. DCDi was
developed by Faroudja Laboratories for ultra-high-end
home theater equipment to eliminate the jagged edges
that appear when standard interlaced video is viewed on
Progressive Scan displays. This patented technology
identifies edges at any angle in moving video images and
interpolates along the edge, pixel-by-pixel, to produce
smooth, natural looking images.

● Otherwise, connect the VIDEO IN jack on the
DVD Recorder (yellow) to the corresponding OUT
jack on the video camera. Use the video cable
supplied (3). Then connect the AUDIO Left (white)
and Right (red) IN jacks of the DVD Recorder to the
corresponding OUT jacks on the video camera using
the AUDIO cable supplied (4).
● If your video camera has mono sound, use only the
left audio connector. In this case the sound will be
recorded on both audio channels.
Step 6: Power supply
● Make sure all necessary connections are made before
connecting the DVD Recorder to the power supply.
● Plug the supplied power cable into the Power jack on
the back of the Recorder.

If it appears that the DVD Recorder is faulty, first consult this checklist. It may be that something has been overlooked.
Under no circumstances attempt to repair the system yourself; this will invalidate the warranty. Look for the specific
symptom(s). Then perform only the actions listed to remedy the specific symptom(s).
Symptom
Remedy
The Recorder does not respond to the
remote control
Aim the remote control directly at the sensor on the front of the Recorder.
Avoid all obstacles which may interfere with the signal path.
Inspect or replace the batteries in the remote control.
No power
Make sure power cord is properly connected.
Check if there is power at the AC outlet by plugging in another appliance.
No picture
Check if the TV is switched on.
Check the video connection.
Distorted picture / distorted sound
Check the disc for fingerprints and clean the disc with a soft cloth, wiping
from the center to the edge in a straight line.
Sometimes a small amount of picture distortion may appear. This is not a
malfunction.

A DVD+RW disc does not play on a certain
DVD player
• There are DVD Players that will not play recordings made with a DVD
Recorder. With a special procedure the recorder will solve this problem
for some players. Proceed as follows:
1. Put the disc in the drawer (do not close the tray).
2. Press and hold the 2 key on the remote control for several seconds until
the tray closes. The disc is now modified.
3. If the change has no effect, you may perform the same procedure with the
3 key on the remote control.
Note:
Modifying the disc can solve the problem for a specific player model, but playback
in other DVD players may no longer be possible.
It is therefore recommended to use this procedure carefully and only when needed.
• To revert the disc to the original state, follow the same procedure with the
1 key on the remote control.
Note:
To achieve maximum compatibility, make sure the disc contains at least 5 minutes
recorded in HQ mode, 12 minutes in SP+, 20 minutes in EP or 30 minutes in EP+
mode. For more information about compatibility with DVD players refer to
‘Troubleshooting’ in the instructions for Use.

Instructions
DVD Recorder system notes
DVD+RW and DVD+R discs recorded on your DVD
recorder can be played on most DVD players and DVDROM drives, with the following issues:
- The time search function will not be available.
- The screen will display twice as many titles as there are
on the disc.
This is due to the ‘DVD+RW Video Format Specifications’
and the ‘DVD+R Video Format Specifications.’ It is not a
malfunction.
A DVD+RW/+R disc may not play on certain DVD Video
players.
1 Unplug the power cord of the Recorder.
2 Press and hold the 2 while you reconnect the power
cord of the Recorder.
➤ On the display, BUSY appears with a counter
number. Release the 2.
➤ After a few minutes, the message changes from
‘BUSY’ to ‘FAIL’ or ‘PASS.’
3 If FAIL appears on the display, there is apparently a failure in your Recorder.Your Recorder should be
repaired. Consult your authorized YAMAHA dealer or
Service Center for assistance.
4 If ‘PASS’ appears on the display, there is apparently no
failure in your Recorder. In this case, the failure can be
caused by incorrect interpretation of the operating
instructions, a wrong disc in use, or incorrect connections. Consult your authorized YAMAHA dealer or
Service Center for assistance.
5 Unplug the power cord, then reconnect it to a power
source and use the DVD Recorder again as usual.
A DVD+RW/+R disc recorded on a different type or
brand of Recorder can play, but may not provide all
features commonly available to it, such as the on-screen
disc bar, the disc settings menu, the title settings menu,
and editing.
Refer to ‘Adapt disc format.’ If the disc is erase-protected,
the status cannot be changed.
When using manual recording, the DVD Recorder will
advise you before adapting the format of the disc or
removing non-video data (See ‘Before you start
recording’). When using timer recording, however,
the DVD Recorder will always start to record, unless the
disc is write-protected. Menus, edits and other data
recorded on a different device (e.g. a PC) may be lost.
Because of the Variable Bit Rate, a title map takes up less
or more space than the overwritten title, even though the
duration is the same. As a result, part of the original title
may remain, or part of the next title may be lost. The
maximum deviation is five minutes.
When you connect a remote control to the IN RC6
Remote Control Input on the back of the Recorder,
the first signals from the remote control may be lost.
After a power interruption during recording, the Index
Picture Screen may not match the actual video content on
the disc. The last recorded title may be lost.
