Once the “DSPC” mode is set to “ON”, the DSPC
system works for both recording & playback;
appears blinking on the display.
Select SmartPicture Mode
Notes:
• The DSPC system works for SP, LP and SLP modes only
after a tape has been inserted and the Record mode is
first initiated. Also, it works if the colour mode is
changed. It does not work during recording.
• In the case of timer recording, the DSPC system works
before recording is initiated.
• Once the cassette is ejected after recording, the DSPC
data is cancelled. The next time the cassette is used for
recording, DSPC is re-performed.
• When “DSPC’ is displayed, the VCR does not start One
Touch Recording.
• Since the DSPC system works before recording actually
starts, there is a delay of approximately 7 seconds after
REC/OTR ● is pressed. To make sure you record the
desired scene or programme in its entirety, first perform
the following steps:
(or PAUSE/STILL
1) Press and hold STILL/SLOW
on the front panel) and press REC/OTR ● to
engage the RECORD PAUSE mode.
• The VCR then automatically checks the condition of the
tape and, after approximately 7 seconds, re-enters
RECORD PAUSE.
2) Press REC/OTR ● again to start recording.
• If you want to bypass the DSPC system and begin
recording immediately set “DSPC” to “OFF”.
• The VCR adjusts the playback picture quality based on
the quality of the tape in use.
• When watching a tape recorded with “DSPC” set to
“ON”, it is recommended that you leave DSPC to
“ON” during playback as well.
• “DSPC” only appears at the beginning of automatic
tracking. Even though it doesn’t appear after that, the
DSPC function is operative.

Notes:
• It is recommended that the SmartPicture is set to
“SOFT” if playback picture is noisy.
• When “DSPC” is set to “OFF”, “AUTO” is switched
to “NATURAL” automatically.
DSPC
The DSPC (Digital Studio Picture Control) system
checks the condition of the tape in use during

pictures. Set the DSPC to “ON” or “OFF” on the
VCR Set Up menu.
