Listening caution
Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you've just purchased is only the start of your musical
enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your equipment offers. This
manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association's Consumer Electronics Group want you to get the most
out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One that lets the sound come through loud and clear without
annoying blaring or distortion—and, most importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
We recommend you to avoid prolonged exposure to excessive noise.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of sound. So what
sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing.
Guard against this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
* Start your volume control at a low setting.
* Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
* Set the dial and leave it there.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After all, we want you
listening for a lifetime.

When making digital IN/OUT connections
If the connections to studio equipment are set incorrectly, a loop may be set up where the output of the unit is
connected to its recording input. This will not only set up an oscillation but may also damage the monitor
speakers. Attention should therefore be paid to the following points:
1) When recording or playing back through the unit's DIGITAL IN/OUT terminals, be sure to connect these
terminals to the DIGITAL PLAYBACK (IN)/DIGITAL REC OUT (OUT) terminals of other equipment.
2) If the monitor amplifier has no DIGITAL PLAYBACK or DIGITAL REC OUT terminals, this unit (DAT) can be
used only for playback through the ordinary DIGITAL INPUT terminals on the amplifier.
3) If connections are made as in 2) and it is desired to record, do not on any account set the INPUT SELECTOR of
the amplifier to “DIGITAL”.
Concerning the Remote Control
This unit has two systems for remote control operation, using the infra-red remote sensor or the 8-pin parallel
input terminals.

Before Recording
Recording Absolute Time
Be sure to observe the following precautions when recording onto a tape.
V Make sure the accidental erasure prevention tab on the DAT tape is set to the recording position so that
recording can be performed (see page 39).
V Insert the cassette tape after the power is switched on.
When the power is switched on with a cassette tape in the unit, absolute time is not displayed on the counter
display. To make sure that all recordings contain absolute time information, first operate the PLAY button,
perform an end search (see page 21), or rewind tape to the beginning. Then, carry out normal recording
operations.
V Even with new blank tapes, the tape may need to be rewound or End Search Performed. The Absolute Time
display must show “0:00:00”, which indicates that the machine recognizes the beginning of a tape. Absolute
time will not be recorded if this display is not present.
V To advance the tape during recording, use the AUTO REC MUTE button without using the PLAY button or

NOTE:
the last recorded passage, and perform pick-up recording to ensure that there will no section without
absolute time informations (see page 21).
An absolute Time indication must be present on the display in order for the machine to record absolute time
from that point on. If the machine does not recognize its present position, whether it is “0:00:00” or any
other time, Absolute Time will not record. Audio recording, however, is unaffected.
Soundless recording and non-recording:
During soundless recording, the tape travels in a recording state and only the data necessary for recording digital
signals are recorded. In this state, no audio signals are recorded.
As opposed to this, during non-recording, the tape travels in a state other than the recording state, and neither
the audio signals nor the data necessary for recording are recorded.
(This is the same condition as that of a brand new tape.)
[f such a non-recorded section exists in the middle of a recorded tape, important information such as absolute
time will not be recorded.
Recording Program Numbers During Recording
1) Automatic
Note:
There are two ways of recording program numbers as follows:
recording of program numbers
1 Press the PNO/START ID AUTO button if the pno/start ID auto indicator is not illuminated. The pno/start ID
auto indicator illuminates.
The “auto” mode setting, whether ON or OFF, applying when the power was last turned off is retained
when the power is turned on.
2 Perform recording operation. When recording has started, program numbers are recorded automatically in
order (segment 01,02, 03...) as long as a program begins after there has been at least 2 seconds of no sound (below
selected detection level). Program numbers are indicated on the display once they are recorded.
Setting the PNO/START ID AUTO detection level
The level at which a program is to be judged to have no sound can be set to any level in 10 dB increments between
—20 dB and —60 dB.
When the PNO/START ID AUTO button is pressed with the “auto” mode ON, the mode will be turned off.
When the same button is pressed with the “auto” mode OFF, the selected detection level is indicated
momentarily (for approx. 1.2 sec.). If the button is pressed again while the detection level is indicated, the level
is changed by one setting (—40dB — -50dB — -60dB — -20dB — -30dB — —40dB, etc.).

Before Recording
IMPORTANT
NOTE:
As with absolute time, the machine must recognize the current program number (PNO) in order to record the
next sequential number. If there is no PNO showing on the display, then only Start ID's are recorded, without
PNO's. This can occur, for example, if the tape is inserted into the machine in the middle of a segment, because
Start ID's and PNO's are recorded only for the first 9 seconds of a program.
To set program numbers before recording:
In the recording standby mode, use the program number buttons on the remote control transmitter to input the
number of the program to be recorded next.
The program number input flashes on the program number display.
Press the PLAY or FADE IN button.
Recording commences, and when the next Start ID is recorded, the programs are recorded starting with the
program number which was set.
e If the audio level exceeds selected detection level after it has fallen below selected detection level for more
than two seconds, the Start ID is recorded automatically.
* When making a recording from another DAT using the IEC Digital Input, Start ID's may be transmitted as
well as the audio information. However, not all models transmit Start ID's. If in doubt, check with the
manufacturer. Start ID's are recognized by the IEC Digital I/O on Panasonic and Technics models SV-
DA10/3200/3700/3900/4100/3800. Additionally, the SV-4100/3800 AES/EBU ports transmit and receive
Start ID's.
* Tf the source tape has Start ID's which are less than 18 seconds apart, it will either not record onto the
copy, or may be offset a few seconds late.
* Some compact discs have a very short interval between tunes. Even in these cases, however, if your CD
player has an auto space function, the space between tunes can be extended automatically so that pro-
gram numbers are entered correctly during recording.
To cancel the automatic program numbering function:
Press the PNO/START ID AUTO button.
2) Manual recording of program numbers
Note:
1 Make sure the pno/start ID auto indicator goes out. Press the PNO/START ID AUTO button if the indicator is
illuminated.
Press the PLAY button where you want to record a program number during recording. Each time this operation
is performed, a program number (1, 2, 3 etc...) is recorded on the tape. These program numbers may be checked
on the program number display.
Make sure that the PNO display shows a program number. In this case, starting the tape from the record
standby mode will increment that number and record it. If no number is indicated, then only a start ID is
recorded without a program number (PNO).
* In automatic or manual recording of program numbers, a Start ID of 9 seconds duration is recorded each
time a program number is recorded.
* If the tape is stopped temporarily with the PAUSE button, AUTO REC MUTE button, or the fade out,
then recording is started again by pressing the PLAY button after the pno/start ID auto indicator has
gone out, a program number is recorded at that point.
Recording
Making Analog Recordings
Recording from the beginning of the tape
1 Set the INPUT selector to the ANALOG position and select the desired sampling frequency (44.1 kHz or 48 kHz).
2 Press the REW/REV button. Be sure to rewind the tape even if a brand-new tape is used.
This insures that the machine senses beginning of tape, and absolute time is initialized to “0:00:00”. Failure to
do this may result in absolute time and PNO's not to be recorded. (In the worst case, however, audio is recorded,
and absolute time and PNO's can be added later without disturbance to the recording = retime function on
page 26.)
3 Press the REC button. When a tape is used from its beginning, the rec and play indicators illuminate for approx.
4 seconds, and the pause indicator flashes. This is to erase any previous recording, and establish a leader which
is required by the system. When this process is complete, the rec and pause indicators illuminate, and the play
indicator goes out, indicating record standby mode. If the REC button is pressed when the tape is at a location
other than the beginning, the unitimmediately enters record standby mode, the tape stays at the present location
until the PLAY button is pressed.
4 Input the audio source that is to be recorded, and adjust the recording level with the REC LEVEL controls. (see
below.)
5 Press the PLAY button. The play indicator illuminates, and recording begins. The pause indicator goes out.
Adjusting the recording level
The -18 dB level on the meter corresponds to either +4 dB or —10 dB at the analog outputs, depending on the
setting of DISPLAY FUNCTION SELECTORS. This is compatible with most professional and semi-pro analog
equipment. However, in practical digital recording application, it is often desired to record at maximum level
(0 dB) for optimum resolution. In this case, the recording level must be adjusted for the highest possible level
where peak levels never trigger the “over” indicator.

How to Make Silent Spaces on Tape/How to Erase
Inserting a silent space on the tape (Auto Rec Mute Function)
1 By inserting a silent space, a new recording can be clearly distinguished from the previous one. Press the REC
button. After the unit enters the record standby mode, press the AUTO REC MUTE button. A silent space of
approx. 4 seconds will then be recorded on the tape. During these 4 seconds, the pause indicator will flash and
the play indicator will illuminate.
After a recording has finished, be sure to insert a silent space of 4 seconds before stopping or pausing the tape.
Consecutive recording and program play will then be performed more accurately.
2 To eliminate unwanted sections during a recording, press the AUTO REC MUTE button while the unit is in the
recording mode. A silent space of approx. 4 seconds will be automatically inserted on the tape, and
the unit will then enter the record standby mode. To begin recording again, press the PLAY button. 19
20
Recording
To make the silent space shorter or longer:
№ Making it shorter (less than 4 seconds)
Press the AUTO REC MUTE button, then press the PAUSE button or PLAY button within 4 seconds.
When the PAUSE button is pressed, the unit enters the pause mode; when the PLAY button is pressed, recording
begins.
H Making it longer (greater than 4 seconds)
Press and hold the AUTO REC MUTE button as long as necessary. When the button is released, the unit enters
the record standby mode. To resume recording, press the PLAY button.
Erasing a recorded tape
When a tape is recorded again, any previous recording is erased automatically. To erase only the recording
(without erasing absolute time), set the REC LEVEL controls to the minimum position, and record up to the end
of the tape (check the peak level meter does not move).
When end search is performed on a tape that has been erased up to the end by the above method, the unit runs
to the end of the tape. This is because end search looks for either blank, unused tape or an End mark. Although
the previous recording is erased, absolute time is not, and this is viewed as a silent recording by the end search
function.
Recording
Making Digital Recordings
Before making digital recordings, check the following settings:
type of digital audio interface (AES/EBU or IEC coaxial, optical)
value of ID6 SCMS status (only for AES/EBU 1/0 recordings)
Ze
For further details, see “System Display Mode Selection” on pages 28-31. After the required settings have been
made, follow the procedures described below.
1 Make sure the INPUT selector is set to the DIGITAL position.
2 Press the REC button. The unit enters the record standby mode. The rec indicator and pause indicator
illuminates.
3 Press the PLAY button. The pause indicator goes out. The play indicator illuminates, and recording begins.
4 Play the digital source that is to be recorded. The digital input can be monitored through the analog output, or
via headphones.
Notes: * When making digital recordings, rec level adjustment cannot be made.
* When the INPUT indicator flashes, recording cannot be performed. In this case, the digital input
terminals may not be correctly connected, or input terminal selection is not set correctly. (Refer to pages 6
and 28.) Connections, signals and input terminal selection should therefore be re-checked.
Only when signals are recorded in the automatic program number recording mode and a DAT recorder is used
as the recording source are the Start IDs and Skip IDs on the player's tape recorded straight onto the recorder's
tape. With any other source, the intervals between the programs are detected by the signal level for recording.
When recording is started with the program numbers displayed, it is possible to record these numbers as well.
If the program numbers are not displayed, only the Start IDs will be recorded. However, the program numbers
can be added later using the renumbering function. The desired program number can also be set by using the
program number buttons on the remote control transmitter.
The automatic program number recording mode is established when material from an old type of DAT is edited
with its digital signals.

Concerning end search
When using a tape that has been previously recorded on, it may be adviseable to record an End mark at the end
of the new recording. End Search will cue up to the End mark if it does not first encounter a blank, unused portion
of tape. If no End mark is present, then it searches for unused tape.
Note: А tape is recorded on even if there is no audio input. Anytime the unit is run in Recording mode, an “RF
Envelope” will be present on the tape. An End mark must be present in order for End Search to work on
tapes which have the RF Envelope recorded throughout.

Description of Sub Codes
DAT recordings consist not only of audio information, but also sub code. The sub code portion of the recording
includes absolute time, PNO's, Start ID's, Skip 1D's, etc. These sub codes enable the beginning of a program to
be searched during playback or to edit a tape after it has been recorded.
Sub codes are used not only for automatically writing information during recording, but can also be changed
later without disturbing the audio.

During recording, Start ID, program number, absolute time and program time can be recorded automatically
by setting the PNO/START ID AUTO button. Program numbers can be re-sequenced by indexing. To index the
tape in stop or pause mode, advance the tape to the desired position by means of the SHUTTLE SEARCH dial,
FF/CUE button or REW/REV button, and then stop it with the PAUSE or STOP button.
* Reset the accidental erasure prevention tabs, so that the tape can be recorded.
* [f the OPEN/CLOSE button is pressed and the cassette tape is removed during indexing, the index mode

To Record Start ID's During Playback
1) Automatic recording
In this method, a Start ID is automatically recorded on the tape wherever a *level transition is detected. A Start
ID is recorded at the beginning of each segment on tapes where program numbers have not been recorded. In
the case of tapes that already contain Start ID's, the previous recording is erased and a Start ID is recorded where
the audio begins. As long as these Start ID’s are recorded, you will be able to make full use of access play and
program play functions.
* Level transition: means the audio signal must exceed the selected detection level threshold after at least 2
seconds below selected detection level. This is referenced to 0 dB, which is maximum
recording level.
1 Enter the auto mode. The pno/start ID auto indicator illuminates.
2 Press the START ID button. The start ID indicator flashes.
3 While listening to the playback sound onthe tape, advance or rewind the tape using the SHUTTLESEARCH dial.
Then, near the point where you want to insert a Start ID, press the ID WRITE button. The start ID indicator will
flash, a Start ID will be recorded where the sound begins, and the indicator will illuminate for about 9 seconds.
In this automatic program number recording mode, Start ID's about 9 seconds long will also be automatically
recorded one after another where sound begins.
To cancel the auto mode:
1 Press the STOP button. The indexing function will be released.
2 Press the PNO/START ID AUTO button. The pno/start ID auto indicator will go out.

2) Manual recording
In this method, Start ID’s can be recorded on the tape at any desired position. Check if the pno/start ID auto
indicator is illuminated. If it is, press the PNO/START ID AUTO button to cancel.
1 Press the START ID button. The start ID indicator flashes.
2 While listening to the playback sound on the tape, advance or rewind the tape using the SHUTTLE SEARCH dial.
Then, at the point where you want to insert a Start ID, press the ID WRITE button.
The start ID indicator illuminates for about 9 seconds and then goes out. A Start ID (approx. 9 sec.) will be
recorded at the point where the button was pressed. Then the unit is ready for inserting the next Start ID.
3 Repeat steps 1-2 to insert Start ID’s one after another wherever desired.
Note: Do not press the STOP button when the start ID indicator is illuminated (approx. 9 sec.) in both Automatic/
Manual Recording. If the STOP button is pressed, the Start ID will not be recorded long enough to be
detected upon playback.
Start ID's may be recorded in either Play or Pause mode. In Play mode, they are written “on the fly” by simply
listening for the desired location. In Pause mode, more accurate cueing is possible, as the Start ID may be written
at a precise location by using Absolute Time as a reference.
Shuttle search
This function allows you to search rapidly forward or backward on the tape for specific sections with a high
degree of accuracy while listening to the material recorded on the tape. (Refer to page 12.)
Erasing Recorded Start ID’s
1 Press the START ID button. The start ID indicator flashes.
2 Turn the SHUTTLE SEARCH dial to run the tape to the point where you want to erase a start ID.
When the tape reaches the position at which a Start ID was recorded, the start ID indicator illuminates to show
the presence of a Start ID.
3 Press the ID ERASE button. The erase indicator illuminates.
The tape is then rewound to find the Start ID and erasure begins just before the beginning of the Start ID.
(During this time, the erase indicator illuminates, and the start ID indicator flashes.) After erasure, both
indicators go out.
4 Repeat steps 1-3 to erase subsequent ID's, if necessary.
Hint: — If you wish to erase all Start ID's on a tape, it is best to start at the end of the tape. By default, the unit
searches for 1D's in reverse direction during ID Erase mode.
Assigning Sequence Numbers to Recorded Start ID's
After recording or erasing of Start ID's and confirmation that all Start ID's are in the correct location, press the
RENUMBER button. The tape will rewind to the beginning, the unit searches for the recorded Start ID's, and
automatically assigns program numbers to them in sequence starting from 01. When the tape reaches the end,
the renumber function is complete, and the tape is rewound to the beginning again. While the tape is running,
the play indicator flashes. Each time the tape comes to a position where a Start ID has been recorded, the start
ID indicator illuminates.
25
Indexing
To set the first program number when renumbering:
In the stop or standby mode, use the program number buttons on the remote control transmitter to input the
program number to be renumbered first.
The program number input flashes on the program number display.
Press the RENUMBER button.
Renumbering commences, and the program numbers are re-assigned starting with the program number which
was set.
Recording Absolute Time with the Index Function (Retime Function)
Note:
Even on tapes where absolute time has not been recorded, it can be recorded while indexing is being carried out.
Enter the auto mode. The pno/start ID auto indicator will illuminate.
Press the START ID button to put the unit in Start ID recording mode. The start ID indicator will flash.
Press the REW/ REV button to rewind the tape to the beginning. Confirm that the display shows “0:00:00”.
Press the ID WRITE button.
Start ID's will be recorded on the tape automatically, together with absolute time. Audio recorded on the tape
remains unaffected.
If program numbers, Start ID's, Skip ID's and End mark have been recorded in any part of the tape, they are all
erased during a new recording.
After the absolute time is recorded up to the end of the tape or recorded part, the unit enters stop mode.
If there is a blank, unrecorded part at the start of the tape, it is necessary to run the tape in recording mode
up to the point which is already previously recorded. Otherwise, Absolute Time will not be recorded.
Recording and Erasing a Skip 1D
Note:
Skip ID causes the unit to go into fast-forward mode until the next Start ID is reached, in order to skip unwanted
material. Skip ID's can be recorded to automatically skip over parts of the tape you do not wish to hear (auto skip
play function).
Skip IDs can only be recorded manually.
The procedure to record and erase a Skip ID is the same as one for a Start ID, except for the following steps:
To enter the Skip ID recording or erasing mode, press the SKIP ID button, instead of the START ID button. The
skip ID indicator flashes.
When the ID WRITE button is pressed to record a Skip ID, the skip ID indicator will illuminate for about one
second.
Canceling the auto skip play function
26
When Skip Play Cancel is turned on, Skip ID's are ignored. When a Skip ID is encountered in this mode, the skip
ID indicator lights, but tape play continues uninterrupted.
The auto skip play mode is set ON when the power is turned on if it was on when the power was last turned off
and it is set OFF if it was off when the power was last turned off. Hence, if you want to cancel the auto skip play
function, press the SKIP PLAY CANCEL button to enter the auto skip cancel mode. The skip play cancel indicator
will illuminate.

has been pressed.
To change the setting:
Press the SKIP button (forward). The mode is switched alternately between on and off. The setting established
after initialization is “OFF”.
Any ID recorded is ignored if it is detected during the first for two seconds after playback starts.
Selecting the program playback blank skip mode (mode No.4)
Note:
Program playback blank skip determines which way the SV-3800 recognizes the end of a program. This is
necessary for program play since the machine must skip to a selection at another location on the tape when the
currently playing program ends.
When blank skip mode is on, the machine skips to the next programmed selection as soon as it encounters audio
level below selected detection level for 2 seconds or more. When blank skip mode is off, the machine skips to
the next programmed selection as soon as it encounters the next Start ID or Skip ID following the present
program.

(1) SCMS
The Serial Copy Management System (SCMS) is designed to control digital-to-digital DAT copying that a
consumer can perform on various digital audio material, including Compact Discs, pre-recorded DAT tapes,
and other material via [EC 958 “consumer use” digital audio interfaces (also commonly referred to as “S/P DIF”).
SCMS does not affect the ability to make copies using a DAT recorder's analog inputs and outputs.
Only one serial (or generational) digital-to-digital copy can be made from a copyright protected source, such as
a commercial CD or pre-recorded DAT. Serial Copy Management System labels are generated onto tape each
time an SC MS-equipped consumer DAT machine records an audio signal to ta pe, no matter whether the source
is from the analog or digital inputs.
(2) Setting the main ID6
Technically, the SCMS labels for DAT are encoded into the sub code sections of the main digital data area,
specifically “main 1D6”. The 5V-3800 allows the user to preset the SCMS status bits of main ID6 onto the DAT
recording. Forlegal reasons, the ID6bits are only modified ifthe sourceinputis the AES/EBU Digital I/O; analog
input during digital copying via the IEC “consumer use” input, the SV-3800 simply copies across the current
status of SCMS codes from the source tape.

Setting the nominal output level (mode No.6)
Various types of audio equipment work at different reference levels. The nominal output level reduces the level
of the analog outputs. This feature makes it possible to vary the analog output level over a 14 dB range. This
virtually eliminates any likelihood of level incompatibility with other equipment.
(1) Nominal output level setting methods
This level can be set in the following 2 ways.
1) The level is set using the SKIP buttons or SHUTTLE SEARCH dial in +4 dBu to —6 dBu nominal output level

Condensation
Operation Notes
In winter, moisture droplets may form on the window panes of a heated room. This phenomenon is called
condensation. Condensation may occur with this unit or with cassette tape in the following situations:
* in a room where a heater has just been turned on
* in a room where steam or excessive moisture are present
* when the unit is brought in suddenly from a cold place to a warm room
* when the unit is directly in the path of cold air from an air conditioner, etc.
In such cases, the unit will not operate correctly, and even if it does operate, the tape may be damaged. In
particular, if moisture condenses on the rotating heads, the tape will stick. This will prevent the tape from
running properly, and might damage it.
If condensation occurs
To protect the tape, this unit contains a built-in device so that when condensation occurs, the dew indicator on
the display panel flashes. While the dew indicator is flashing, apart from the OPEN/CLOSE function, buttons
on the unit will not operate.
If a cassette tape is loaded in the unit, remove it and leave the power switched on. Wait until the indicator goes
out. The time required for moisture to evaporate will vary according to the environment, but it may be 60 minutes
or longer if humidity is high. Condensation usually sets in gradually, so the indicator may not flash for the first
10~15 minutes. If room temperature or humidity changes abruptly, therefore, wait for about 20 minutes before
switching on power to check that the indicator is not flashing.
Operating the unit
Always keep the cassette holder closed. If it is left open, dust will accumulate in the mechanism and cause tape
playback or recording performance to deteriorate. Do not touch the inside of the cassette holder.
The top of the recorder will become hot during use, but this is perfectly normal.
Keep the replay volume low. With DAT (Digital Audio Tape recorder) cassettes, there is much less noise than
with compact cassettes and a wider dynamic range. There will be a sudden burst of sound when the audio
material begins. As this may damage the speakers, due care should be taken. Be especially careful when using
headphones.
Dynamic Range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest sound level and highest sound level, and is expressed in
decibels (dB). The greater this difference, the more dynamic the recording.
When carrying or storing the unit, take care not to subject it to any severe shocks. When storing or transporting
the unit, also be sure to remove the cassette tape.
If a mechanism error occurs
Note:
This recorder unloads the tape when a mechanism error occurs in order to protect the tape. In these cases, the
unit will not operate except for the OPEN/CLOSE button. After the OPEN/CLOSE function is operated and the
tape 1s removed, the tape protection mechanism is released and all functions become valid.
(Refor to “Displaying error codes” on page 33.)
When the tape snaps or is too heavy to real up, a mechanism error occurs. In these cases, press the OPEN/
CLOSE button to open the tray and remove the cassette tape.
If this error occurs repeatedly, contact your nearest service center.

Maintenance
To clean this unit, use a soft, dry cloth. If the surfaces are extremely dirty, use a soft cloth, dipped into a soap-
and-water solution or a weak detergent solution. Wring the cloth well before wiping the unit. Wipe once again
with a soft, dry cloth. Never use alcohol, paint thinner, benzine, nor a chemically treated cloth to clean this unit.
Such chemicals may damage the finish of your unit.
Importance of cleaning DAT heads
As with any tape-based recorder, it is essential that the SV-3800 Pro-DAT's heads are kept perfectly
clean. A Panasonic DAT Head Cleaning Tape (part number RT-RCLP, optional) is available for your local dealer
that automatically removes the dirt, dust and shed tape particles that gradually build up on the DAT heads.
Buthow do you know that the heads need cleaning? In extreme conditions the audio output will mute, but long
before that happens, the slow build up of dirtand oxide will “mask” the sound, and diminish the full 16-bit audio
quality from this DAT machine by causing record as well as replay errors.
An ideal solution is to make yourself a “DAT Test Tape” whose error rate you can monitor on a daily or weekly
basis (depending on how often you use the SV-3800). To prepare a Test Tape, first select a high-quality DAT
cassette and then record a series of music selections. Rewind the DAT cassette and monitor the Error Rates
during the first several minutes of tape.
Panasonic brand DAT tapes use high-quality formulations, binders, backings and calendaring process, to
provide minimum abrasiveness with maximum stability of metal particles on the tape. Itis specifically designed
to maximize head life of your DAT machine.
Check the Error Rates at several points in the tape and average the values. (On how to display error rates on the
SV-3800, see page 29.) If the Error Rates increase to around 300, a Panasonic Head Cleaning Tape can be used
as follows: Play the cleaning tape through the SV-3800 for approximately 15-20 seconds, and remove it.
DO NOT REWIND the cleaning tape, since this action might very well spread previously removed dirt and dust
onto an otherwise clean head and transport. After the Head Cleaning Tape has been used up, dispose of it
properly and start to use a new one.
If the DAT heads become very contaminated with dirt and dust, the CLEANING indicator within the display
panel will flash. In this case, use a Head Cleaning Tape as described above.
e If playback quality improves after cleaning, but then deteriorates immediately after recording or playing
back several times, the cassette tape has probably reached its useful lifetime. In this case, use a new tape.
* If sound quality does not improve even after cleaning, consult your dealer.
* Cleaning tapes cannot be used for recording or playback (be sure to read also the operating instructions
supplied with the tape).
Concerning DAT Cassette Tape
Using DAT cassette tapes
To avoid accidental erasure of valuable recordings:
Recorded tapes you want to keep can be protected by sliding the “accidental erasure prevention tab” open
towards the center of the cassette with the aid of a small screwdriver as in the diagram.
When the “accidental erasure prevention tab” To record on the tape again, return the
is open, recording cannot be performed. tab to its original position (closed).
Top surface
Cassette tapes with no accidental erasure prevention tab:
Break open the hole with a small Philips screwdriver or other tool.
With this method, however, the tape cannot be returned to its original condition, and it cannot therefore be
recorded again.
Cassette tapes exceeding 180 minutes:
These tapes are handy for their long playback and recording time, but be careful about repeatedly stopping and
starting, rewinding and fast forwarding these tapes in short intervals as they are thin, tend to stretch and may
become entangled in the deck mechanism.
Handling DAT cassette tapes
* Moisture may condense on a tape that is carried suddenly from a cold place into a warm room, so wait
about 20 minutes before using it. If the tape is used with moisture on its surface, it will be damaged.
* Do not attempt to dry a cassette tape with moisture on its surface by using a hair dryer or other appliance.
* Do not open the top lid of the cassette, pull the tape out or touch it.
* Take care not to drop the cassette, hit it or subject it to violent vibration.
* The cassette mechanism has been assembled very precisely. It should on no account be disassembled.
* The cassette cannot be used on the reverse side.
Storing DAT cassette tapes
Store the cassette in its case to prevent the entry of dust. Do not leave or store the cassette in the following
locations:
Near objects with strong magnetic fields (speakers, televisions, transformers, motors or magnets).
Places with excessive humidity (over about 80%) or dust.
Places with high temperatures (over about 35°C).
Places exposed to direct sunlight or heat from heating appliances. The cassette should never be left in a
car dashboard or near the rear window.
* After use, rewind the tape to the beginning. If rewinding is interrupted, it may lead to creases in the tape
and affect sound quality on playback.
