SAFETY FIRST
Safety Precautions
The rating plate and the safety caution are on the rear of the unit.
WARNING: DANGEROUS VOLTAGE INSIDE
WARNING: TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS UNIT
TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
CAUTION
8 When you are not using the recorder for a long period of time, it is recommended that you disconnect
the power cord from the mains outlet.
8 Dangerous voltage inside. Refer internal servicing to qualified service personnel. To prevent electric
shock or fire hazard, remove the power cord from the mains outlet prior to connecting or
disconnecting any signal lead or aerial.
WARNING
There are two different types of SECAM colour systems: SECAM-L, used in FRANCE (also called
SECAM-West), and SECAM-B, used in Eastern European countries (also called SECAM-East).
1. This recorder can also receive SECAM-B colour television signals for recording and playback.
2. Recordings made of SECAM-B television signals produce monochrome pictures if played back on a
video recorder of SECAM-L standard, or do not produce normal colour pictures if played back on a
PAL video recorder with SECAM-B system incorporated (even if the TV set is SECAM-compatible).
3. SECAM-L prerecorded cassettes or recordings made with a SECAM-L video recorder produce
monochrome pictures when played back with this recorder.
4. This recorder cannot be used for the SECAM-L standard. Use a SECAM-L recorder to record SECAM-L
signals.
IMPORTANT
8 Please read the various precautions on pages 2 and 3 before installing or operating the recorder.
8 It should be noted that it may be unlawful to re-record pre-recorded tapes, records, or discs without
the consent of the owner of copyright in the sound or video recording, broadcast or cable programme
and in any literary, dramatic, musical, or artistic work embodied therein.
● Cassettes marked “S-VHS” and “VHS” can be used with this video cassette recorder. However, S-VHS recordings are possible only
with cassettes marked “S-VHS”.
By using the S-VHS ET function, it is possible to record and play back with S-VHS picture quality on VHS cassettes with this recorder.

For Italy:
“It is declared that this product, brand JVC, conforms to the Ministry Decree n. 548 of 28 Aug.’95
published in the Official Gazette of the Italian Republic n. 301 of 28 Dec.’95”
The STANDBY/ON 1 button does not completely shut off mains power from the unit, but switches
operating current on and off. “`” shows electrical power standby and “!” shows ON.
Video tapes recorded with this video recorder in the LP/EP (Long Play/Extended Play) mode cannot be
played back on a single-speed video recorder.
Failure to heed the following precautions may result in damage to the recorder, remote control or video
cassette.
1. DO NOT place the recorder . . .
...in an environment prone to extreme temperatures or humidity.
...in direct sunlight.
...in a dusty environment.
...in an environment where strong magnetic fields are generated.
...on a surface that is unstable or subject to vibration.
2. DO NOT block the recorder’s ventilation openings.
3. DO NOT place heavy objects on the recorder or remote control.
4. DO NOT place anything which might spill on top of the recorder or remote control.
5. AVOID violent shocks to the recorder during transport.
MOISTURE CONDENSATION
Moisture in the air will condense on the recorder when you move it from a cold place to a warm place, or
under extremely humid conditions—just as water droplets form in the surface of a glass filled with cold
liquid. Moisture condensation on the head drum will cause damage to the tape. In conditions where
condensation may occur, keep the recorder turned on for a few hours to let the moisture dry.

B.E.S.T. Picture
System
The B.E.S.T. (Biconditional Equalised Signal Tracking)
system checks the condition of the tape in use during
playback and recording, and compensates to provide the
highest-possible playback and recording pictures. You
can set “B.E.S.T.” to “ON” or “OFF” to your preference
(墌 pg. 69).
Playback
The recorder assesses the quality of the tape once you
initiate playback.
● The recorder adjusts the playback picture quality based on the
quality of the tape in use.
● B.E.S.T. is active during automatic tracking. “BEST” appears
blinking on the recorder’s front display panel.
NOTES:
● When watching a tape recorded with “B.E.S.T.” set to “ON”, it
is recommended that you leave B.E.S.T. on during playback as
well.
● When watching a rental tape or one recorded on another
video recorder, or when using this recorder as the player for
editing, set B.E.S.T. to your preference (墌 pg. 69).
● “BEST” only appears at the beginning of automatic tracking.
Even though it doesn’t appear after that, the B.E.S.T. function is
operative.

Recording
The recorder assesses the quality of the tape once you
initiate recording.
DURING B.E.S.T.
B.E.S.T. COMPLETE
● The recorder spends approximately 7 seconds assessing the
condition of the tape, then begins recording.
NOTES:
● The B.E.S.T. system works for both SP and LP (or EP) modes
only after a tape has been inserted and the Record mode is first
initiated. It does not work during recording.
● The B.E.S.T. system does not work while Automatic Satellite
Programme Recording is in progress (墌 pg. 38).
● In the case of timer recordings, the B.E.S.T. system works
before recording is initiated.
● Once the cassette is ejected, the B.E.S.T. data is cancelled. The
next time the cassette is used for recording, B.E.S.T. is
re-performed.
● Pressing the recorder’s 7 button while “BEST” is displayed
does not start Instant Timer Recording (墌 pg. 27).
ATTENTION
Since the B.E.S.T. system works before recording actually
starts, there is a delay of approximately 7 seconds after 7
and 4 on the remote control are pressed, or 7 on the
recorder is pressed. To make sure you record the desired
scene or programme in its entirety, first perform the following
steps:
A Press and hold 9 and press 7 to engage the Record
Pause mode.
● The recorder then automatically checks the condition of
the tape and, after approximately 7 seconds, re-enters
Record Pause mode.
B Press 4 to start recording.
If you want to bypass the B.E.S.T. system and begin recording
immediately, set “B.E.S.T.” to “OFF” (墌 pg. 69).

VPS/PDC Recording
Now available from some TV stations, PDC (Programme
Delivery Control) and VPS (Video Programme System) are
service designed to assure safe, accurate timer recording.
With this system, special code signals are transmitted
together with the audio/video signals. These code signals
control your video recorder and have precedence over the
advertised times you may have preset into the timer. This
means that your recorder will start and stop recording when
the preset TV programmes actually start and end — even if
the broadcast time of a preset TV programme is changed.
NOTES:
● When you use Express Timer Programming, set the start
time (VPS or PDC time) exactly as advertised in the TV
listing. A different time than advertised will result in no
recording.
● VPS/PDC recording is also possible when a satellite
receiver or a cable system is connected to AV2 (L-2) IN/
DECODER connector on your recorder.
● VPS/PDC recording is also possible via the AV1 (L-1) IN/
OUT connector.
How to check if the station being received transmits a
VPS/PDC signal
A Press – –:– – until the channel position appears on the
front display panel.
B Hold down START+ for about 5 seconds.
“VPS/PDC” appears blinking on the front display panel.
If a VPS/PDC signal is detected from the station,
“VPS/PDC” will stop blinking.
If no VPS/PDC signal is detected from the station,
“VPS/PDC” will blink at a slower rate.
C Press – –:– – or START+ again to return to normal display.

ATTENTION
● Be sure not to turn on the satellite receiver before the
programme is executed; otherwise, the recorder will start
recording when the satellite receiver’s power is turned on.
● If you have connected another appliance other than a
satellite receiver to the AV2 (L-2) IN/DECODER connector,
be sure not to engage the Automatic Satellite Programme
Recording mode; otherwise, the recorder will start
recording when the connected appliance’s power is turned
on.
● Automatic Satellite Programme Recording and
timer-recording cannot be done at the same time.
Before performing the following steps:
● Make sure the satellite receiver is connected to the recorder’s
AV2 (L-2) IN/DECODER connector. (墌 pg. 64, 65)
● Programme the timer on the satellite receiver.
● Insert a cassette with the safety tab in place.

Advantages of S-VHS video recorders
You can edit from VHS to S-VHS, S-VHS to VHS, or, from
S-VHS to S-VHS.
● From VHS to S-VHS: Record VHS playback signals in the
S-VHS mode. Although the picture quality is inherently
limited by that of the original, the edited tape has better
picture quality than those made by VHS-to-VHS editing.
● From S-VHS to VHS: Because the picture quality of the
source material is very high, the edited tape has better
picture quality than those made by VHS-to-VHS editing.
● From S-VHS to S-VHS: All signals will be transferred with
minimum degradation.

you have repaired the first set of points.
NOTES:
● You can also monitor the sound when searching for scenes you
want to edit in steps 7 – 8. Since you can hear the soundtrack
during selection, you can avoid abrupt or unnatural sounding
scene-to-scene transitions. The sound that is heard, however,
is not TimeScan Audio.
● When editing, there may be a discrepancy of about 2 seconds
on the source tape between the locations you chose as edit-in
and -out points and the locations your recorder recognizes as
those points.
● For any scene, the edit-out point must have a counter reading
that is at least 1 second after the corresponding edit-in point.
Any less than 1 second and the edit-out point will not be
registered.
● Since the source recorder prerolls during Random Assemble
Editing, there must be at least 15 seconds worth of recorded
material prior to any edit-in point on the source tape.
● If the search time for an edit-in point exceeds 5 minutes, the
recording deck enters its Stop mode and editing will not take
place.

SUBSIDIARY SETTINGS (cont.)
Video Channel Set
Video channel (RF output channel) is the channel on which your TV receives picture and sound signals from the recorder through the
RF cable.
IMPORTANT
Perform the following steps only if —
— interference appears in the TV picture after you have moved to a different area or a new station has started broadcasting in your
area.
— you change the connection between your recorder and TV from RF connection to AV or S-VIDEO connection, or vice versa.
If you have connected the recorder to your TV via the AV or S-VIDEO connection (墌 pg. 10, 11), since you do not
need the video channel you have to set the video channel to off.
If you have connected the recorder to your TV via the RF connection (墌 pg. 10), you have to set the correct video
channel.
Before performing the following steps:
Make sure the recorder’s power is off and there is no cassette inserted in the recorder.
A
Access the Video Channel Set mode.
B
Set the RF output system.
Hold down 0 on the recorder until the front display
panel shows the following.
Then set your TV to UHF channel 50.
● If the two vertical white bars appear

● If the two vertical white bars do not
appear clearly, re-set the video
recorder to another vacant channel
and try again.
NOTES:
The blinking number on the display indicates the RF
output system of your country.
● If you have selected MAGYARORSZÁG (36), CESKÁ
REPUBLIKA (42), POLSKA (48), РОССИЯ (07) or OTHER

a local station or has neighbouring channels that are occupied
by local stations, the picture reception quality will be affected
and some interference noise will appear on the TV screen. Be
sure to select a vacant channel which has no broadcast on
neighbouring channels.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
85
PLAYBACK
TIMER RECORDING
Q. What happens if the end of the tape is reached
during playback or search?
A. The tape is automatically rewound to the
beginning.
Q. “o” and “#” remain lit on the front display
panel. Is there a problem?
A. No. This is a normal condition for a timer
recording in progress.
Q. Can the video recorder indefinitely remain in
the still mode?
A. No. It stops automatically after 5 minutes to
protect the heads.
Q. Can I programme the timer while I’m watching
a tape or a TV broadcast?
A. You won’t see the picture as it is replaced by the
on-screen menu, but the audio from the
programme or tape you’re viewing can be
heard.
Q. When returning from variable-speed search to
normal playback, the picture is disturbed.
Should I be concerned about this?
A. No, it is normal.
Q. Other than preventing further recording, what
effect does removing the Record Safety tab
have?
A. It disables marking of index codes.
Q. Sometimes, during Index Search, the video
recorder can’t find the programme I want to
see. Why not?
A. There may be index codes too close together.
RECORDING
Q. When I pause and then resume a recording, the
end of the recording before the pause is
overlapped by the beginning of the
continuation of recording. Why does this
happen?
A. This is normal. It reduces distortion at the pause
and resume points.
Q. Can the video recorder indefinitely remain in
the Record-Pause mode?
A. No. The video recorder goes to its Stop mode
automatically after 5 minutes to protect the
heads.
Q. What happens if the tape runs out during
recording?
