When the equipment is installed in a cabinet or a shelf, make sure
that it has sufficient space on all sides to allow for ventilation
(10 cm or more on both sides, on top and at the rear).
When discarding batteries, environmental problems must be
considered and the local rules or laws governing the disposal of
these batteries must be followed strictly.
Failure to heed the following precautions may result in damage
to the recorder, remote control or video cassette.
1. DO NOT place the recorder ...
... in an environment prone to extreme temperatures or
humidity.
... in direct sunlight.
... in a dusty environment.
... in an environment where strong magnetic fields are
generated.
... on a surface that is unstable or subject to vibration.
2. DO NOT block the recorder’s ventilation openings or holes.
(If the ventilation openings or holes are blocked by a
newspaper or cloth, etc., the heat may not be able to get out.)
3. DO NOT place heavy objects on the recorder or remote
control.
4. DO NOT place anything which might spill on top of the
recorder or remote control.

MOISTURE CONDENSATION
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 on 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’s power turned on for a few hours to
let the moisture dry.
How to use the remote control
Rear Panel
Mains power cord
The remote control can operate most of your recorder’s functions,
as well as basic functions of TV, cable box, satellite receiver, and
DVD sets of JVC and other brands.
● Point the remote control toward the sensor window on the
target component.
● The maximum operating distance of the remote control is about
8 m.
NOTES:
● When inserting the batteries, be sure to insert in the correct
directions as indicated under the battery cover.
● If the remote control does not work properly, remove its
batteries, wait for a few seconds, replace the batteries and then
try again.
Video heads cleaning
Use a dry cleaning cassette — TCL-2UX — when:
● Rough, poor picture appears while a tape is played back.
● The picture is unclear or no picture appears.
● “USE CLEANING CASSETTE” appears on the screen (only with
“O.S.D.” set to “ON”).

䡵 B.E.S.T. — ON / OFF
䡵 AUTO TIMER — ON / OFF
When B.E.S.T. (Biconditional Equalized Signal Tracking) system is
set to “ON”, this recorder checks the condition of the tape in use
during playback and recording, and compensates to provide the
highest-possible pictures. This takes place whenever you play
back a tape or start recording after inserting a tape.
NOTE:
The recorder checks the tape condition for about 7 seconds, then
starts recording. To make sure you record the desired scene or
program completely, perform the following steps:
A Press and hold PAUSE (9), and press REC (7). After about
7 seconds, the recorder re-enters Record Pause mode.
B Press PLAY (4) to start recording.
䡵 PICTURE CONTROL — AUTO(NORM) / EDIT / SOFT / SHARP
This function helps you to adjust the playback picture quality
according to your preference.
AUTO (NORM): Normally select this. Picture quality is adjusted
automatically. When “B.E.S.T.” is “OFF”, “NORM” will appear
instead of “AUTO”.
EDIT: Minimizes picture degradation during editing (recording and
playback).
SOFT: Reduces image coarseness when viewing overplayed tapes
containing much noise.
SHARP: Clearer, sharper-edged picture when viewing images with
much flat, same-coloured surfaces such as cartoons.
NOTE:
Select “EDIT” when you are editing tapes. After you finish editing
the tapes, select “AUTO”.
● When this function is set to “ON”:
The timer recording standby mode is automatically engaged when
the recorder is turned off. It is temporarily canceled when the
recorder is turned on. You do not have to press # to engage or
disengage the timer recording standby mode.
● When this function is set to “OFF”:
You have to press # to engage or disengage the timer recording
standby mode.
䡵 O.S.D. — ON / OFF
When this function is set to “ON”, various recorder status
information (on-screen display) appears on the screen.
NOTE:
When you use this recorder as the source player for editing a tape,
be sure to set this function to “OFF”; otherwise, the recorder status
information (on-screen display) will be recorded on the edited
tape.
䡵 AUTO SP]LP TIMER — ON / OFF
When this function is set to “ON”, the recorder automatically
switches to LP mode to allow complete recording if there is not
enough tape to record the entire program while timer-recording in
SP mode.
For Example, Recording a PAL-broadcast programme of 210
minutes in length onto a 180-minute tape.
Approximately 150 minutes
Approximately 60 minutes
SP mode
䡵 PAL/MESECAM — AUTO / PAL / MESECAM
Select the appropriate colour system for recording or playback.
AUTO: Usually set to this mode. The appropriate colour system
(PAL or MESECAM) will be selected depending on the playback or
recording signals.
If the “AUTO” mode does not work properly, select either of the
following manual modes.
PAL: To record PAL signals, or playback a PAL tape.
MESECAM: To record SECAM signals, or playback a SECAM or
MESECAM tape.
NOTES:
NOTES:
● If you have programed the recorder to timer-record 2 or more
programs, do not use this function, but change the tape speed
manually during timer programing.
● There may be some noise and sound disturbance where the tape
speed switches from SP to LP mode on the tape.
● 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 or with some tapes of
shorter lengths.
● SECAM signals will always be recorded as MESECAM. Select
“AUTO” or “MESECAM” when recording SECAM signals.
● When playing back a SECAM tape, select “AUTO” or
“MESECAM”. The playback picture will always be
monochrome.
䡵 NTSC — NTSC3.58 / NTSC4.43 / NTSC]PAL
To record NTSC signals or playback a NTSC tape, it will be
necessary to select the appropriate mode.
NTSC3.58: To record NTSC signals or playback a NTSC tape.
NTSC4.43: To record NTSC4.43 signals or playback a NTSC4.43
tape.
NTSC]PAL: To playback a NTSC tape on PAL TV.
NOTE:
● The “NTSC]PAL” mode does not work during recording. In
this mode, NTSC signals will be recorded as NTSC3.58.
● The Menu screen is distorted during playing back a NTSC tape
on PAL TV. Stop playback and access the Menu screen again.
● In the “NTSC4.43” mode, with some TVs, on-screen displays
(Program screen, etc.) may roll up or down and there may be a
loss of colour. When this happens, select the “NTSC3.58”
mode.

Changing Remote Control Code
Editing
This remote control is capable of transmitting two control codes;
one set to respond to A code control signals and another set to
respond to B code control signals. This remote control is preset to
send A code signals because your recorder is initially set to
respond to A code signals. You can easily modify your recorder
and the remote control to respond to B code signals. When using
two JVC recorders, set two recorders and their remote controls to
different codes, so that you can operate these recorders separately.
You can use your recorder as the playback or recording deck.You
can use a camcorder as the source player and your recorder as the
recording deck. Refer also to the other components’ instruction
manuals for connection and its operations.

NOTES:
When viewing NTSC tapes on a PAL TV set:
● The picture may shrink vertically with black bars appearing at the top and bottom of the screen. This is not a malfunction on the part of the
video recorder nor the TV.
● The picture may roll up or down. This can be corrected using the V-HOLD control found on some TVs. (This cannot be corrected if the TV
does not have a V-HOLD control.)
● During search, still, or frame-by-frame playback, the picture will be distorted, and there may be a loss of colour.
ATTENTION:
When this recorder is connected to a multi-system TV, the audio signal may not be heard or may be noisy if the colour system select switch
of the TV is adjusted to the AUTO position. In such a case, set the TV’s colour system select switch to the appropriate position which
corresponds to the TV system you have selected at the TV System Select screen.

IMPORTANT
Perform the following steps only if auto channel set has not been
set correctly by Auto Set Up function or if you have moved to a
different area or if a new station starts broadcasting in your area.
Your recorder needs to memorise all necessary stations in channel
positions in order to record TV programmes. Auto Channel Set
automatically assigns all receivable stations in your area so that
you can call them up with the PR+/– buttons without going
through any vacant channels.
