PRECAUTIONS
MOISTURE CONDENSATION
DO NOT OPERATE THIS VCR FOR AT LEAST TWO
OR THREE HOURS WHEN MOISTURE IN THE AIR
CONDENSES ON THE VCR.
WHAT IS MOISTURE CONDENSATION?
When a cold liquid is poured into a glass, for example,
water vapor in the air will condense on the surface of the
glass. This is called moisture condensation.
MOISTURE WILL CONDENSE ON THE UNIT IN THE
FOLLOWING CASES:
• When you move this VCR from a cold to a warm place.
• After heating a cold room or under extremely humid
conditions.
WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE THE ABOVE CONDITIONS,
Plug the power cord into an AC outlet, press the POWER
button to turn on and leave the unit at room temperature
until moisture condensation disappears. Depending on the
surrounding conditions, this may take two or three hours.
LOCATION AND HANDLE
• If you cause a static discharge when touching the VCR,
and the VCR fails to function, simply unplug the unit
from the wall outlet, wait 10 minutes and plug it back
in. The VCR should return to normal operation.
• When you finish operating the VCR, always unload
the cassette and turn off the power.
• When you leave your home for a long time, unplug the
AC power cord.
• To protect the VCR from a lightning storm, unplug the
AC power cord from the wall outlet and disconnect the

STEREO
broadcast is received, the
STEREO will appear on the
screen and the program can
be viewed or recorded in
stereo (refer to pages 18 and

position if the stereo broadcast or videotape audio is of
poor quality. The "R" and "L" positions allow the audio
from the Right or Left Hi-Fi channel to be heard over
both TV speakers. This button has no effect when
viewing a MONO videotape or TV program. Each time
you press the button, the OUTPUT SELECTION display
appears on the screen for several seconds. Refer to the

Recording VCR
The video heads are the means by which the VCR
reads pictures from the tape during playback. In the
unlikely event that the heads become dirty enough to be
clogged, no picture will be played back. This can easily
be determined if, during playback of a known good tape,
there is good sound, but no picture (picture is extremely
snowy). If this is the case, use a high quality head
cleaning system or have them cleaned professionally.

Video head cleaning is needed when the playback
picture becomes unclear. This signifies that the heads
are getting dirty and can occur when playing poor quality
or damaged tapes. If the heads require cleaning, use a
equivalent high quality chemical non-abrasive (wet)
head cleaning tape or have them cleaned professionally.
If playing a head cleaning tape in the VCR once does
not improve the picture, play it several times before
requesting service.
