Your video recorder (VCR) is designed so that almost all of its features can be controlled from the
REMOTE CONTROL HANDSET. Some features can also be controlled from the FRONT PANEL
of the video recorder. The maximum operating distance that you may control your video recorder
is about 7.5 metres (25 feet). It must also be within an angle of 30 degrees either side of the
REMOTE SENSOR on the front of your video recorder.

Please remember to turn the
volume to minimum on your Hi-Fi, then
gradually increase the volume; this will
prevent damaging your speakers and
save you from an extremely noisy shock!
Make sure all connections are made with
both your VCR and camcorder unplugged
from the mains to avoid damaging your
equipment. To make connecting your
camcorder easier we have designed the

Video Head
Cleaning
accumulating on the head after a long period of time can cause the playback
picture to become blurred or broken up. High quality video cassette tapes will not normally
deposit dirt onto the video head, but old or damaged tapes might.
Clean the video heads with a commercially available video heads cleaning tape.
