DIGITAL STUDIO PICTURE CONTROL
Philips has developed a system which produces
the best possible playback quality. For old and
often-used video cassettes, this system reduces
interference. For new or high quality cassettes,
it emphasises the details.
Picture/ sound quality is poor
When playing rental videos or older, poorer
quality cassettes, it may not be possible to completely filter out picture and sound interference.
This is not a fault in your machine. Read the
section 'Manual tracking'.
The counter does not move
This occurs when there are no recordings on a
portion of a tape. This is not a fault in your
video recorder.
The screen shows '-0:01:20'
If you rewind a cassette from the tape position
'0:00:00', the counter will show for instance,
'-0:01:20' (the cassette was rewound to 1
minute and 20 seconds before '0:00:00').

Do I need to change the playback speed
when playing back LP recordings?
During playback, the correct speed will automatically be selected. For more information,
please read the section 'Selecting the recording
speed (SP or LP)' in the chapter 'Manual
recording'.
Playing back NTSC cassettes
Cassettes that have been recorded in the NTSC
standard (for example, American cassettes) can

Preventing accidental erasing of
cassettes
All cassettes (except for rental and store cassettes) have a security tab on the back of the
cassette.
To prevent recording over important recordings
(erasing), you can remove this security tab.
If you later decide to record on a protected cassette, simply cover the hole with adhesive tape
or slide the tab to the right.
Lining up recordings (assemble cut)
When you add a further recording to a cassette,
which already has a recording on it, a short
blank (flicker) can appear between the old and
the new recording or the picture itself can flicker.
To help reduce these from occurring, proceed as
follows:
1. Find the tape position of the old recording
where you want to insert the new recording.
2. Look at the last minute of the old recording
(playback).
3. Press STILL 2 at the tape position where
the new recording is to go and press
