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.

Some Do's And Don'ts On The Safe
Use Of Equipment
This equipment has been designed and manufactured to meet international safety standards but, like any
electrical equipment, care must be taken if you are to obtain the best results and safety is to be assured.
DO read the operating instructions before you attempt to use the equipment.
DO ensure that all electrical connections (including the mains plug, extension leads and interconnections between pieces of equipment) are properly made and in accordance with the manufacturer's
instructions. Switch off and withdraw the mains plug when making or changing connections.
DO consult your dealer if you are ever in doubt about the installation, operation or safety of your equipment.
DO be careful with glass panels or doors on equipment.
DON'T continue to operate the equipment if you are in any doubt about it working normally, or if it is
damanged in any way — switch off, withdraw the mains plug and consult your dealer.
DON'T remove any fixed cover as this may expose dangerous voltages.
DON'T leave equipment switched on when it is unattended unless it is specifically stated that it is de-

DON'T
signed for unattended operation or has a standby mode. Switch off using the switch on the
equipment and make sure that your family knows how to do this. Special arrangements may need
to be made for infirm or handicapped people.
use equipment such as personal stereos or radios so that you are distracted from the requirements
of road safety. It is illegal to watch television whilst driving.
listen to headphones at high volume, as such use can permanently damage your hearing.
obstruct the ventilation of the equipment, for example with curtains or soft furnishings. Overheating will cause damage and shorten the life of the equipment.
use makeshift stands and NEVER fix legs with wood screws — to ensure complete safety always
fit the manufacturer's approved stand or legs with the fixings provided according to the instructions.
allow electrical equipment to be exposed to rain or moisture.
ABOVE ALL...
— NEVER let anyone especially children push anything into holes, slots or any other opening in the
case — this could result in a fatal electrical shock;
— NEVER guess or take chances with electrical equipment of any kind — it is better to be safe than
sorry!

NOTES:
● The Auto SP/LP Timer feature is not available during ITR
(Instant Timer Recording), and the feature will not work
properly with any tapes longer than E-180 as well as some
tapes of shorter lengths.
● Even if, in step 1, you press AUTO SP/LP TIMER and it lights
“green”, that doesn’t mean that the recorder will automatically change from SP to LP mode during the course of the
recording. Watch the tape later to confirm.
● If you have programmed the recorder to timer-record 2 or
more programs, the second programme and those thereafter
may not fit on the tape if you engage the Auto SP/LP Timer
mode. In this case, make sure the mode is not engaged, then
set the tape speed manually during timer programming.
● There may be some noise at the point on the tape where the
recorder switches from SP to LP mode.
● If you perform timer recording with both PDC and the Auto
SP/LP Timer activated, and the programme goes beyond its
originally scheduled length, there may be times when the
programme cannot be recorded in its entirety.

PDC Recording
Now available from some TV stations, PDC (Programme
Delivery Control) is a 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
advertised times you preset in 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.
Timer Warning
If you have programmed your
recorder to timer-record a
programme or a series of
programmes, a warning appears
on screen to tell you that the
recording is to start in 5 minutes.
– WARNING–
TIMER RECORDING
TO START SOON
[CANCEL]
NOTES:
● The warning only appears if you’re not in the Timer mode at
that time.
● If this recorder is being used as the player for tape dubbing,
the warning screen is recorded on the tape in the other video
recorder.
The warning blinks for the entire 5 minutes leading up to the
start of timer recording. To clear the display, press CANCEL.
To Use PDC Service . . .
The default setting for PDC is "ON". To cancel PDC, press
NUMBER key "7" so that "OFF" is displayed during Video Plus+
or regular timer programming.
NOTES:
● When you manually enter programmes (regular timer
programming), set the start time (PDC time) exactly as
advertised in the TV listing. A different time than advertised
will result in no recording.
● PDC Recording is also possible when a satellite tuner or a
cable box is connected to AV2 IN on your recorder.
● When PDC recording is performed, the Instant ReView
programme readout number may not match the actual number
of programmes that have been timer-recorded (Z pg. 14).

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
PLAYBACK
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. 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.
