PLEASE READ IT BEFORE USING YOUR VIDEO CASSETTE RECORDER.
CAUTION AND CARE
CONDENSATION IS THE ENEMY OF VIDEO RECORDERS
2 WHAT IS CONDENSATION?
1. When a very cold drink is poured into a glass, the water droplets which form on the outer surface of the glass are an example of
condensation.
2. If the VCR is exposed to a rapid increase in temperature (such as warming a cold room or after transporting it from a cold location
to a warm one) condensation may form on the tape transport mechanism inside the VCR. To prevent damage to the VCR or tapes,
plug the VCR into the mains outlet and turn the power on for about 2 hours. Do not use the VCR for playback or record during this
time.
2 CONDENSATION IS LIKELY TO OCCUR WHEN:
1. The VCR is moved inside from outdoors, or from a cold room to a warm one.
2. A cold room is heated quickly.
3. Humidity is high.
N
• Avoid using the VCR where cold air (e.g., from an air conditioner) will blow directly on it.
• Never place anything containing water on top of the VCR, e.g., vases, cups, etc.
HEAVY OBJECTS (E.G., TV) SHOULD NEVER BE PLACED ON THE VCR
CABINET CARE
Never use petroleum-based cleaners. Clean with a soft cloth
moistened with soap and water and wipe dry. PVC cables or leads
should not be left in contact with the cabinet surface for long periods.
UNPLUGGING THE MAINS LEAD
Whenever unplugging the mains leads, be sure to switch off the
mains outlet first. Then unplug the lead by gripping the plug (not
the lead) and carefully remove the plug from the mains outlet.
NEVER TOUCH OR INSERT ANY OBJECT INSIDE THE VCR
Touching the inside of the cabinet or inserting foreign objects of
any kind not only creates a safety hazard but can also cause extensive damage.
INSTALLATION LOCATION
For optimum performance and reliability, install the VCR in a location that is:
1. Well ventilated, out of direct sunlight and away from direct heat.
2. A solid vibration-free surface.
3. Free from high humidity, excessive dust and away from magnetic fields.
PROTECT THE MAINS LEAD
Damage to the mains lead may cause fire or shock hazard.
UNPLUG THE MAINS LEAD DURING A LONG ABSENCE
During a long absence, turn off the power and switch off the mains
outlet before unplugging the mains lead.
N
• Never move the VCR without first removing the tape.
MAINTAIN GOOD VENTILATION
Do not obstruct the many ventilation holes on the VCR. For maximum ventilation, place the unit on a hard level surface only, and
ensure it is not covered during use. Heavy objects should never
be placed on the VCR.
CARE OF VIDEO CASSETTE TAPES
• Avoid violent vibration or shock.
• Do not place near a strong magnetic field (e.g., a motor, transformer or magnet).
• Never place or store in direct sunlight.
• Avoid dusty places.
• Place the cassette in its case and store vertically.
WHEN NOT IN USE
When you finish operating the VCR always unload the cassette
and turn OFF the VCR POWER.
2 MAINS LEAD CONNECTION
The mains lead on this VCR is fitted with a non-rewireable
mains plug, incorporating a 5A fuse. If you need to replace
the fuse, use a 5A fuse approved by BSI or ASTA to BS 1362,
ensuring you refit the fuse cover. If the mains plug is not suitable for the sockets in your home, buy a new mains lead. If
you require to remove the plug, remove the fuse, cut off the
plug then dispose of the plug immediately, to avoid a possible
electric shock hazard. To refit a new plug, follow these instructions;
Green-and-yellow: Earth,
Blue: Neutral,
Brown: Live
As the colours in the mains lead of this VCR may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in
your plug, proceed as follows.
• The wire which is coloured green-and-yellow must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked by the letter
E or by the safety earth symbol » or coloured green or greenand-yellow.
• The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.
• The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the
terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.
WARNING:
TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD, DO
NOT EXPOSE THIS APPARATUS TO RAIN OR
MOISTURE.
WARNING:
THIS APPARATUS MUST BE EARTHED.

LOADING AND UNLOADING THE CASSETTE TAPE
Video cassette tapes can be loaded into your new VCR as long as the VCR is plugged into a power source. Even if the VCR power
switch is turned off, loading a cassette will automatically cause it to turn on. Use only video cassette tapes marked V or S.
Do not use a E-240 or SE-240 cassette tape when recording in 48H - 960H or 0H mode.
LOADING
1 To position the cassette properly before inserting it in the cassette slot, hold
the cassette so that the long narrow edge with the contents label faces towards
you. The other long narrow edge is hinged and should face towards the VCR.
The clear plastic window that shows the video tape should face upward.
2 Gently insert the videotape into the cassette slot to a point where the VCR
automatically retracts the cassette.
• When you insert the videotape, be sure to align it squarely to the slot.

• Your new VCR has a protection circuit which will eject the tape if it is loaded
improperly. If the VCR ejects the tape you are trying to load, remove it
completely and check that the long narrow edge with the contents label is
facing towards you and that the clear plastic window that shows the video
tape is facing upwards. Then try again.
UNLOADING
1 Press the EJECT button on the front of the VCR.
INCORRECT
2 Remove the cassette.
N
• Your VCR will eject a video cassette even if it is in STANDBY mode. When
the EJECT button is pressed, the VCR will automatically turn on, eject the
tape and turn off. It is not possible to eject a tape whilst recording without first
pressing the STOP button. A tape cannot be ejected when the VCR is locked.
PREVENTING ACCIDENTAL ERASURE
Video cassettes come with an erasure prevention tab which, when removed,
prevents the tape’s contents from being erased or recorded over. A cassette
without the erasure prevention tab will automatically be ejected from your VCR if
you attempt to record on it.
N
• We recommend that any torn or broken cassette tape requiring repair should
only be taken to professionals who specialise in such procedures. The
adhesives on many common types of tape could damage the head of your
VCR.

MEMORY BACK-UP IN CASE OF POWER FAILURE
This VCR includes a built-in memory back-up so the presets of present time and date, alarm list, power loss list and the number of
tape use will remain in memory if there is a power failure or if the POWER CORD is disconnected from the mains outlet. The presets
will remain in memory for a maximum of 31days provided that the VCR has been connected to the mains supply for at least 40 hours
per week. Connection charges the backup supply.
• Check the present time if there has been a power failure or if the POWER CORD has been disconnected from the mains for a
prolonged time.
RECORDING AFTER A POWER FAILURE
If there is a power failure during recording and the power comes back on, the VCR will begin
recording in the same record mode as before the power failure. After the power comes back on,
“X” will be displayed next to the present time for about 1 minute.
If a power failure occurs during playback, the VCR will be in the stop mode when the power
comes back on.
