1 Introduction
Welcome to the family of owners of
Philips VHS video recorders.
Thank you for choosing to buy our product. Please wait at
least three hours after transporting the appliance before
starting installation. The set needs this time in order to
become acclimatised to its new environment (temperature, air
humidity, etc.).
Your Philips Team hopes that
you will enjoy using your new
video recorder!
This product complies with the requirements of Directive 73/23/EEC + 89/336/EEC + 93/68 EEC.
Important notes for operation
You should not under any circumstances open the set yourself.
You would expose yourself to the risk of an electric shock from
the hazardous high voltage inside.
When the appliance is connected to the power supply, there are some
components which are constantly operational.To switch off the video
recorder completely, you must disconnect it from the power supply.
The video recorder does not contain any components that can be
repaired by the customer.
!
Make sure that air can circulate freely through the ventilation slots on
the video recorder.
Make sure that no objects or liquids enter the video recorder. If liquid is
spilt into it, disconnect the video recorder immediately from the power
supply and call the After Sales Service for advice.
The video recorder should not be used immediately after
transportation from a cold to a hot area or vice versa, or
in conditions of extreme humidity.
These operating instructions have been printed on non-polluting paper.
Please deposit old batteries at the relevant collection points.
Please make use of the facilities available in your country for
disposing of the video recorder packaging in a way that helps
to protect the environment.

IMPORTANT
NOTES FOR OPERATION

ENGLISH
The most important functions of your new video recorder
Your Philips video recorder can be used, not only for recording and playing back VHS
cassettes, but it also has a whole range of special functions which will make day-to-day
use of your new video recorder easier for you.
Plug in and off you go - getting started with your new video recorder just couldn’t be simpler. Once you
have connected the cables, you will immediately see text on the screen which will assist you at all stages
of operation.
The function “Smart Picture” gives you the option of activating pre-defined picture settings quickly and
easily at the touch of a button.
Using the enclosed multi-code remote control you can, if you wish, control the main functions of your TV
set - even if your TV is not made by Philips.
The simple programming system for video recorders revolutionized the video world when it was
introduced. Instead of having to enter many different details (date, starting time, finish time, programme),
which was often tiresome and liable to errors, all you have to do is enter a number, up to nine digits long,
which can be found in any TV programme listing. Once you have done that, all the relevant details for the
recording are stored.
VIDEO Plus+ and PlusCode are registered trademarks of Gemstar Development Corporation.
The VIDEO Plus+ system is manufactured under licence from Gemstar Development Corporation.
Recordings can be controlled, not only by the video recorder itself but also by a connected satellite
receiver. In this way the programme from various TV stations can be recorded one after another without
the need to set the corresponding channels on the satellite receiver manually. Requirement: Your
satellite receiver must support this function.
So that you can identify your machine in the event of theft, enter the serial number (PROD. NO)
here.You will find it on the type plate on the back of the set.
MODEL NO.

..............................
If you have any problems using the video recorder, please read the corresponding
chapters in this instruction manual. If you have any questions, there is also a customer
support service available in your country. You can find the telephone number in the
guarantee information enclosed in the packaging. Please have your model number
(MODEL NO.) and production number (PROD. NO.) ready.

General information
Switching on
If the video recorder is in standby mode, it can be switched on either by pressing
the Standby button m, by pressing one of the number buttons 0-9 or by inserting
a cassette.
Automatic switch-off
If the video recorder is not used for several minutes, it switches itself off
automatically. This function can be deactivated (e.g. if you want to use the video
recorder as a TV receiver).You can find out more about this in the chapter “Other
functions” (“Adjusting automatic switch off”).
Energy consumption
The video recorder should always be connected to the mains so as not to affect
programmed recordings and use of the TV set. Power consumption (in energy
saving mode) is less than 4W.
Saving energy
In standby mode, the display of the video recorder shows the current time.This
display can be deactivated manually, in order to reduce power consumption to a
minimum in standby mode.You can find the necessary steps in the section “Other
functions” (“Energy-saving mode”).
Emergency exit
The video recorder and the remote control have the option of an “Emergency
exit”.You can use the Standby button m to interrupt any step during use. But even
without an “emergency brake” your new video recorder is safe: there is no risk
whatsoever of damaging the set by performing user steps incorrectly.
In the event of a
power cut
Channel data are stored for around 1 year, time and timer data remain in the
memory of the video recorder for around 7 hours.

Adding a cassette to the Tape Manager
What is a Tape Manager (TM)?
This databank, which is integrated in your video
recorder, makes a note of all recordings performed
with this set. This means that by simply pressing a
button, you can not only access an overview of your
entire video collection, you will also know which film
is on which cassette or how many minutes of this
cassette have not yet been recorded on. And: At the
touch of a button, the video recorder automatically
winds backward or forwards to the start of a
recording or to a blank part of the tape.
1
Switch on the TV set and - if necessary select the programme number set for video
recorder operation
2
Insert a blank cassette which is ready for
recording
Never use cassettes which have already been
recorded on.
Warning: Only blank cassettes or those already
included in the Tape Manager can be managed by the
Tape Manager. Recordings made by other video
recorders (without the Tape Manager function) will
not be recognised by the Tape Manager.

What is a recording title?
Each cassette entered in the Tape Manager has a “List
of contents” that displays all the recordings on it. It
shows the recording title and the duration of the
corresponding recording. Some TV stations transmit
the title of a programme. In this case, the title will be
included automatically (e.g. “ROCKY”). If the title is not
transmitted, only the date and time of the recording
will appear in the list of contents. The title of the
recording can only be / changed after the completed
recording has been entered. To do this, it is not
necessary to insert the corresponding cassette.

12 Suppressing interference
Optimizing the modulator
If the TV set and the video recorder are only connected with an
aerial cable - rather than with an additional scart cable - it may
happen that in certain reception locations the modulator
frequency of the video recorder is occupied by a TV channel. As
soon as the video recorder is switched on, the reception quality
of the TV picture deteriorates.The following steps will show you
how to overcome this problem.
What is a modulator?
The purpose of this electronic assembly inside your
video recorder is to pass on the picture and sound
information read in from the video tape via an aerial
cable like a TV signal to the TV set. The modulator
frequency determines the frequency range in which
these signals are transmitted.

1
Switch the video recorder on and make sure
there is no cassette in the video recorder
2
Press simultaneously the EJECT button J on
the front of the video recorder and the
button PROGRAMME - until the display
shows the modulator frequency (e.g. “M583”
or “CH35” ).
3
The display shows “M ON”. The video
recorder will now transmit a test image on
this frequency

Switching off the modulator
If you have connected the video recorder to the TV set
with a scart cable, you can switch off the modulator
when there is interference with the picture or sound
(see below).
FOR
EXPERTS
Switching the modulator on / off
J
M583
If picture and sound interference cannot be removed by optimising the
modulator, the integral modulator can be switched off.Warning: this is
only possible if you have connected the video recorder to the TV set
with a scart cable. It is not possible to operate with the modulator
switched off without a scart cable.

Switch the video recorder on and make sure
there is no cassette in the video recorder
