CONNECTING YOUR TV-VIDEO COMBI
Important for the United Kingdom
Connecting the cables
This apparatus is fitted with an approved moulded 13 Amp
plug. To change a fuse in this type of plug proceed as follows:
a Remove fuse cover and fuse.
b Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 5A, A.S.T.A. or
BSI approved type.
c Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket outlets, it should
be cut off and an appropriate plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should have a value of
5A. If a plug without a fuse is used, the fuse at the distribution
board should not be greater than 5A.
D Note: * The severed plug must be destroyed to avoid a
possible shock hazard should it be inserted into a 13A
socket elsewhere.
How to connect a plug:
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with
the following code:
BLUE - ’NEUTRAL’ (’N’)
BROWN - ’LIVE’ (’L’)
a Insert the aerial plug into the 2 socket.
b Insert the plug of the mains cable into the wall socket.
c Adjust the radio aerial at the back of the machine to
obtain the best possible reception quality by positioning
the ends of the aerial in opposite directions.
d If the little red light at the front of the set is not alight,
please switch on the set. The power switch
located on the left side panel of the set.

is
d The BLUE wire must be connected to the terminal which
is marked with the letter ’N’ or coloured BLACK.
Connecting a decoder or other equipment
e The BROWN wire must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter ’L’ or coloured RED.
f Do not connect either wires to the earth terminal in the
plug which is marked with the letter ’E’ or by the safety
earth symbol \or coloured green or green-and-yellow.
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain that the cord
grip is clamped over the sheath of the lead - not simply over
the two wires.

record;
* the start and stop time of the recording;
* whether you want to use VPS or PDC;
* the recording speed (SP/LP).
