MAINTENANCE
MAINTENANCE
CABINET CLEANING
• Wipe the front panel and other exterior surfaces of the TV/VCR with a soft cloth
immersed in lukewarm water and wrung dry.
• Never use a solvent or alcohol. Do not spray insecticide liquid near the TV/VCR.
Such chemicals may cause damage and discoloration to the exposed surfaces.
HEAD CLEANING
• Picture playback may become blurred or interrupted while the TV program
reception is clear. This does not mean that the recorded program has been erased. Dirt
accumulated on the video heads after long periods of tape playback, or the usage of
rental or worn tapes can cause this problem. In this case, video head cleaning requires
highly technical attention, therefore consult the nearest Authorized Service Center.
Clean heads only when problems occur.
SERVICING
• Should your TV/VCR become inoperative, do not try to correct the problem by
yourself. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Turn off, unplug the power cord,
and take the unit to the nearest Authorized Service Center for servicing.
