Always be careful when using your TV/VCR. To reduce the risk
of fire, electrical shock, and other injuries, keep these safety
precautions in mind when installing, using, and maintaining
your machine.
Read all safety and operating instructions before operating the
TV/VCR.
Retain the safety and operating instructions for future reference.
Heed all warnings on the TV/VCR and in the operating instructions.
Follow all operating and use instructions.
Unplug the TV/VCR from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a
damp cloth; do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.
Never add any attachments and/or equipment without approval of
the manufacturer. Such additions may result in the risk of fire,
electric shock, or other personal injury.
Do not use the TV/VCR where contact with or immersion in water is
a possibility, such as near bath tubs, sinks, washing machines,
swimming pools, etc.
Provide ventilation for the TV/VCR. The unit is designed with slots in
the cabinet for ventilation to protect it from overheating. Do not
block these openings, and do not place the TV/VCR on a bed, sofa,
rug, or other similar surface. Do not place it near a radiator or heat
register. If you place the TV/VCR on a rack or bookcase, ensure that
there is adequate ventilation and that you’ve followed the
manufacturer’s instructions for mounting.

Important Safety Information, continued
• Do not place the TV/VCR on an unstable cart,
stand, tripod, bracket, or table. The TV/VCR may
fall, causing serious injury to a child or adult,
and serious damage to the unit. Use only with a
cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the
TV/VCR. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions
when mounting the unit, and use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer. Move the TV/VCR and its cart with
care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may
cause the unit and cart to overturn.
• Operate your TV/VCR only from the type of power source indicated
on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power
supplied to your home, consult your appliance dealer or local
power company.
• Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this
TV/VCR is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug
having one blade wider than the other. This plug will fit into the
power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully
into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug still doesn’t fit,
contact your electrician to replace your outlet.
• Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so
that they are unlikely to be walked on or pinched by items placed
on or against them. Pay particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit.
• Unplug the TV/VCR from the wall outlet and disconnect the
antenna or cable system during a lightning storm or when left
unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent
damage to the unit due to lightning and power-line surges.
• Avoid overhead power lines. An outside antenna system should not
be placed in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric
light or power circuits or where it can fall into such power lines or
circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, be extremely
careful to keep from touching the power lines or circuits. Contact
with such lines can be fatal.
• Do not overload the wall outlet or extension cords. Overloading
can result in fire or electric shock.
• Do not insert foreign objects through openings in the unit, as they
may touch dangerous voltage points or damage parts. Never spill
liquid of any kind on the TV/VCR.

Important Safety Information, continued
• Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or cable system is
connected to the TV/VCR, be sure the antenna or cable system is
grounded so as to provide
some protection against
voltage surges and built-up
static charges. Section 810 of
the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984,
provides information with
respect to proper grounding
of the mast and supporting
structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge
unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge
unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the
grounding electrode.
• Do not attempt to service the TV/VCR yourself. Refer all servicing to
qualified service personnel. Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and
refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
– when the power-supply cord or plug is damaged
– if liquid has been spilled on or objects have fallen into the unit
– if the TV/VCR has been exposed to rain or water
– if the TV/VCR does not operate normally by following the
operating instructions
– if the TV/VCR has been dropped or the cabinet has been
damaged
– when the TV/VCR exhibits a distinct change in performance
4
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
• If you make adjustments yourself, adjust only those controls that
are covered by the operating instructions. Adjusting other controls
may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a
qualified technician to restore the TV/VCR to normal.
• When replacement parts are required, be sure the service
technician uses replacement parts specified by the manufacturer
or those that have the same characteristics as the original part.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in additional damage to the
unit.
• Upon completion of any service or repairs to this TV/VCR, ask the
service technician to perform safety checks to determine that the
TV/VCR is in a safe operating condition.

If you do not have cable TV, you
must connect an antenna to your
TV/VCR. First you need to identify
your antenna’s lead type:
• If you are using the antenna
that has 300-ohm twin flat
leads, (see the illustration
below) see “Antennas With
300-ohm Flat Twin Leads,”on
this page.

If you use a different 300-ohm
antenna with twin flat leads,
follow the directions below, but
skip step 1.
1 Push the stem of the rod
antenna into the antenna
mount.
3
Place the wires from the twin
leads under the screws on
the 300-75 ohm adapter.
Use a screwdriver to tighten
the screws.
Plug the adapter into the
terminal on the rear panel of
the TV/VCR.
• If your antenna has a 75-ohm
round lead (see the
illustration below), see
“Antennas With 75-ohm
Round Leads,” on this page.
• If you have two antennas,
see “Separate VHF and UHF
Antennas,” on this page.

APPENDIX
Caring for Your TV/VCR
Please follow these guidelines
to get the maximum
performance from your TV/VCR.
Placement
About Video Tapes
Cabinet
• Never open the cabinet or
touch the parts inside.
• Wipe your TV/VCR with a
clean, dry cloth. Never use
water, cleaning fluids, wax,
or chemicals.
• Do not put heavy objects on
top of the cabinet.
Use only video tapes marked
VHS with this TV/VCR.
Caring for Video Tapes
• Use a head cleaning tape to
remove any dirt that has
accumulated on the video
heads.
• Follow the instructions that
come with the cleaning tape;
excessive use of a cleaning
tape can shorten head life.
• Keep tapes away from direct
sunlight, heat or cold.
• Insert tapes with the window
side up and the arrow
pointing away from you.
• Do not subject tapes to
violent vibrations or shocks.
• Never try to take apart or
splice a video tape.
• Do not open the cassette,
touch the tape, or put
anything inside the tape
case.
• Read the instructions
supplied with video tapes.
Liquids
Temperature
Do not handle liquids near or on
the TV/VCR. Liquids that spill
into it can cause serious
damage.
If your TV/VCR is moved from a
cold to a warm place, unplug the
power cord, and allow at least
two hours for moisture that may
have formed inside the unit to
dry completely.
Recording Speeds
• Do not place the TV/VCR near
extremely hot, cold, humid or
dusty places.
• Do not place the TV/VCR near
appliances with electric
motors that create magnetic
fields, such as vacuum
cleaners.
• Keep the ventilation openings
clear; do not place the
TV/VCR on a soft surface,
such as cloth or paper.
• Place the TV/VCR in an
upright position only.
Video Heads
You can play or record a tape at:
• SP (Standard Play) speed
• SLP (Super Long Play) speed
Recording at slower tape
speeds allows tapes to hold
more program material.
TAPE SP
SLP
T-60
1 hr. 3 hrs.
T-120 2 hrs. 6 hrs.
T-160 2 hrs., 8 hrs.
40 mins.
The Record Safety Tab
Most video tapes have a safety
tab that must be intact to record.
To protect a tape from erasure,
you can break off the tab.
To record on a cassette with the
tab removed, cover the hole
with cellophane tape.
Your TV/VCR automatically plays
tapes at the proper speed.
