Operating precautions
Particular care must be taken with your VCR because water
particles that form on the video head drum, which is the main
VCR mechanism, can cause the video tape to stick to the
drum. This prevents proper tape travel and may damage both
tape and mechanism.

Automatic head-cleaning system
This VCR is equipped with an automatic head-cleaning system which automatically cleans
the heads every time a cassette is loaded or unloaded. However if during playback noise
appears in the picture, it is recommended to use commercially available head-cleaning
cassettes to completely clean the VCR heads.
REPAIRS
This VCR is a precision instrument and, if treated with care, will provide years of
satisfactory performance. However, in the event of difficulty, the owner is advised not to
attempt to make repairs or open the cabinet. Servicing should always be referred to your
servicing dealer or Authorized Warranty Station.
