1 Introduction
Welcome to the family of owners of
Philips VHS video recorders.
Thank you for choosing to buy our product. Please wait at
least three hours after transporting the appliance before
starting installation. The set needs this time in order to
become acclimatised to its new environment (temperature, air
humidity, etc.).
Your Philips Team hopes that
you will enjoy using your new
video recorder.
This product complies with the requirements of Directive 73/23/EEC + 89/336/EEC + 93/68 EEC.
Important notes for operation
You should not under any circumstances open the set yourself.You
would expose yourself to the risk of an electric shock from the
hazardous high voltage inside.
When the appliance is connected to the power supply, there are some
components which are constantly operational.To switch off the video
recorder completely, you must disconnect it from the power supply.
The video recorder does not contain any components that can be
repaired by the customer.
!
Make sure that air can circulate freely through the ventilation slots on
the video recorder.
Make sure that no objects or liquids enter the video recorder. If liquid is
spilt into it, disconnect the video recorder immediately from the power
supply and call the After Sales Service for advice.
The video recorder should not be used immediately after transportation
from a cold to a hot area or vice versa, or in conditions of extreme
humidity.
These operating instructions have been printed on non-polluting paper.

of the video recorder packaging in a way that helps to protect the
environment.

NOTES FOR OPERATION

ENGLISH
The most important functions of your new video recorder
Your Philips video recorder can be used, not only for recording and playing back VHS
cassettes, but it also has a whole range of special functions which will make day-to-day
use of your new video recorder easier for you.
Plug in and off you go - getting started with your new video recorder just couldn’t be simpler. Once you
have connected the cables, you will immediately see text on the screen which will assist you at all stages
of operation.
The Easylink function guarantees the best possible connection between your video recorder and other
Home Cinema devices.
Philips has developed a system which makes it possible for you to get the best possible playback quality
from video cassettes. Interference on old, often-played tapes is minimized, and in new or high quality
cassettes, details are even clearer.
The precision mechanism developed by Philips guarantees short rewind times and, by automatically
detecting the length of the tape, makes operation as easy as possible for the user.
The simple programming system for video recorders revolutionized the video world when it was
introduced. Instead of having to enter many different details (date, starting time, finish time,
programme), which was often tiresome and liable to errors, all you have to do is enter a number, up
to nine digits long, which can be found in any TV programme listing. Once you have done that, all the
relevant details for the recording are stored.
VIDEO Plus+ and PlusCode are registered trademarks of the Gemstar Development Corporation.
The VIDEO Plus+ system is manufactured under licence from the Gemstar Development Corporation.
So that you can identify your machine in the event of theft, enter the serial number (PROD. NO)
here.You will find it on the type plate on the back of the set.
MODEL NO.

..............................
If you have any problems using the video recorder, please read the corresponding
chapters in this instruction manual. If you have any questions, there is also a customer
support service available in your country. You can find the telephone number in the
guarantee information enclosed in the packaging. Please have your model number
(MODEL NO.) and production number (PROD. NO.) ready.

General information
Switching on
If the video recorder is in standby mode, it can be switched on either by pressing
the standby button m, by pressing one of the number buttons 0-9 or by inserting
a cassette.
Automatic switch off
If the video recorder is not used for several minutes, it switches itself off
automatically. This function can be deactivated (e.g. if you want to use the video
recorder as a TV receiver).You can find out more about this in the chapter “Other
functions” (“Adjusting automatic switch off”).
Energy consumption
The video recorder should always be connected to the mains so as not to affect
programmed recordings and use of the TV set. Power consumption (in energy
saving mode) is less than 4W.
Saving energy
In standby mode, the display of the video recorder shows the current time.This
display can be deactivated manually, in order to reduce power consumption to a
minimum in standby mode.You can find the necessary steps in the section “Other
functions” (“Energy-saving mode”).
Emergency exit
The video recorder and the remote control have the option of an “Emergency
exit”.You can use the standby button m to interrupt any step during use. But even
without an “emergency brake” your new video recorder is safe: there is no risk
whatsoever of damaging the set by performing user steps incorrectly.
In the event of a power cut
Channel data are stored for around 1 year, time and timer data remain in the
memory of the video recorder for around 3 hours.
Navigation in the main menu
You can check and/or change many functions and settings of your

zero - thus in the negative range. The tape
position is displayed with a minus sign “-”.

What is erase protection?
VHS cassettes can be protected from over-recording by
breaking off a thin strip of plastic (arrow). This erase
protection can be overridden by sticking one or more

11 Suppressing interference
Optimizing the modulator
If the TV set and the video recorder are only connected with an
aerial cable - rather than with an additional scart cable - it may
happen that in certain reception locations the modulator
frequency of the video recorder is occupied by a TV channel.
Result: As soon as the video recorder is switched on, the
reception quality of the TV picture deteriorates. The following
steps will show you how to overcome this problem.
What is a modulator?
The purpose of this electronic assembly inside your
video recorder is to pass on the picture and sound
information read in from the video tape via an aerial
cable like a TV signal to the TV set. The modulator
frequency determines the frequency range in which
these signals are transmitted.
?
1
Switch the video recorder on and make sure
there is no cassette in the video recorder
2
Press at the same time the STOP button h
on the remote control and the STOP/EJECT
? button on the front of the video
recorder until the modulator frequency of
the set appears in the display (e.g.:“M583” for
583 MHz)

The video recorder will now transmit a test
image on this frequency

Switching off the modulator
If you have connected the video recorder to the TV set
with a scart cable, you can switch off the modulator
when there is interference with the picture or sound
(see below).
FOR
EXPERTS
Switching the modulator on and off
If picture and sound interference cannot be removed by optimizing the
modulator, the integral modulator can be switched off.Warning: this is
only possible if you have connected the video recorder to the TV set
with a scart cable. It is not possible to operate with the modulator
switched off without a scart cable.
