Important notes for users in the U.K.
Mains plug
Italia
This apparatus is fitted with an approved 13
Amp plug. To change a fuse in this type of plug
proceed as follows:
Si dichiara che l’apparecchio DVDR3305,
Philips risponde alle prescrizioni dell’art. 2
comma 1 del D.M. 28 Agosto 1995 n. 548.
1 Remove fuse cover and fuse.
DICHIARAZIONE DI CONFORMITA’
Fatto a Eindhoven
Philips Consumer Electronics
Philips, Glaslaan 2
5616 JB Eindhoven, The Netherlands
2 Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362
5 Amp, A.S.T.A. or BSI approved type.
3 Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket
outlets, it should be cut off and an appropriate
plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should
have a value of 5 Amp. If a plug without a fuse
is used, the fuse at the distribution board
should not be greater than 5 Amp.
Note: The severed plug must be disposed of to
avoid a possible shock hazard should it be
inserted into a 13 Amp socket elsewhere.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured with
the following code: blue = neutral (N),
brown = live (L).
Norge
Typeskilt finnes på apparatens underside.
Observer: Nettbryteren er sekundert
innkoplet. Den innebygde netdelen er
derfor ikke frakoplet nettet så lenge
apparatet er tilsluttet nettkontakten.
For å redusere faren for brann eller elektrisk
støt, skal apparatet ikke utsettes for regn eller
fuktighet.
As these colours may not correspond with the
colour markings identifying the terminals in your
plug, proceed as follows:
– Connect the blue wire to the terminal
marked N or coloured black.
– Connect the brown wire to the terminal
marked L or coloured red.
– Do not connect either wire to the earth
terminal in the plug, marked E (or e) or
coloured green (or green and yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain
that the cord grip is clamped over the sheath of
the lead - not simply over the two wires.

What kind of disc should I use for
recording?
You can only record on DVD±R and
DVD±RW discs. DVD±R/±RW is the most
compatible recordable DVD format on the
market today. They are fully compatible to
most of the existing DVD-Video players and
DVD-ROM drives in computers.
What is the capacity of a DVD±R/±RW
disc?
4.7GB, or equivalent to 6 CDs. You can store
only one hour of recordings on a single disc at
the highest quality (DVD standard) and about
6 hours recordings at the lowest quality
(VHS standard).
The recording mode indicates the number of
hours that will fit on a single disc.
What is the difference between DVDvR
and DVD±RW?
DVD±R is “recordable” and DVD±RW is
“erasable” and “rewritable”. With a DVD±R,
you can record multiple sessions on the same
disc, but when the disc is full, you cannot
record any more on the disc. The DVD±RW
allows you to record over the same disc
repeatedly.
Can I copy a VHS tape or DVD from an
external player?
Yes, but only if the VHS tape or DVD is not
copy protected.
How do I set up Titles and Chapters?
The DVD recorder automatically creates a
new Title every time you start a new
recording. You can then add Chapters to these
recordings manually or have them
automatically inserted at 5-minutes intervals.
English
Frequently Asked Questions
What does “finalising” a disc do?
Finalising a disc locks the disc so it can no
longer be recorded, only required for DVD±R.
It will then be compatible with virtually any
DVD player. To close a disc without finalising
it, simply stop recording and eject the disc.
You will still be able to record on the disc if
there is storage space for more recordings.
How good is the quality of the
recording?
There are a few picture quality levels to
choose from, ranging from “1 hour mode”
(High Quality) to “6 hours mode” (VHS
quality). Press REC MODE button on the
remote control to choose the quality level that
best suits your purpose and the length of
material.

What are Titles and Chapters?
A DVD disc contains Titles and Chapters,
which are similar to the Titles and Chapters of
a book. A Title is often a complete movie and
is broken down into Chapters, or individual
scenes from the movies.

Care and Safety Information
English
CAUTION!
High voltage! Do not open the
device. You run the risk of getting
an electric shock.
The machine does not contain any
user-serviceable parts. Please leave
all maintenance work to qualified
personnel.
Cleaning discs
Some problems occur because the disc
inside the recorder is dirty (frozen picture,
sound disruptions, picture distortions). To
avoid these problems, discs should be
cleaned on a regular basis.
To clean a disc, use a micro fibre cleaning
cloth and wipe the disc from the center
to the edge in a straight line.
Setup precautions
Finding a suitable location
– Place the set on a flat, hard and stable
surface. Do not place the set on a carpet.
– Do not position the set on top of
other equipment that might heat it up
(e.g., receiver or amplifier).
– Do not put anything under or above
the set (e.g., CDs, magazines).
– Install the unit near the AC outlet and
where the AC power plug can be reached
easily.
Space for ventilation
– Place the apparatus in a location with
adequate ventilation to prevent internal
heat build up. Allow at least 10 cm (4.5”)
clearance from the rear and the top of
the set and 5 cm (2.3”) from the left and
right to prevent overheating.
CAUTION!
Do not use solvents such as benzene,
thinner, commercially available cleaners,
or anti-static sprays intended for
analogue discs.
Since the optical unit (laser) of the DVD
recorder operates at a higher power than
regular DVD or CD players, cleaning
CDs intended for DVD or CD players
may damage the optical unit (laser).
Therefore, refrain from using a cleaning
CD.

C Use another RF coaxial cable to connect
the TV
socket on the DVD recorder
to the antenna input socket on the TV.
D Use the scart cable to connect the EXT1
TO TV-I/O socket on the DVD
recorder to the corresponding SCART
input socket on the TV.
E Use another scart cable to connect the
EXT2 AUX-I/O socket on the DVD
recorder to the scart output socket
(possibly labelled as TV OUT or TO TV)
on the VCR.
Helpful Hints:
– Most commercial video cassettes and
DVDs are copy-protected and therefore
cannot be recorded.
– Connect the DVD recorder directly to the
TV. If there is a VCR or an additional device
in between, the picture quality may be poor
because of the copy protection system built
into the DVD recorder.
TIPS: Before making or changing any connections, make sure that all the devices are disconnected
from the power outlet.

Discs for recording
Several different formats of DVD
recordable discs can be used with this
DVD recorder:
DVD±RW (DVD Rewritable)
– Discs that are re-writable can be used
for multiple recordings once existing data
is erased.
DVD±R (DVD Recordable)
– Discs can only be used for a single
recording. Each new recording is always
added at the end of all previous
recordings as existing recordings cannot
be overwritten.
– Editing can be made on any DVD±R
discs as long as they have not been
finalised. It is also possible to create
additional chapter markers.
– You can also delete any unwanted
recordings. However, the disc space
occupied by the deleted recordings
cannot be recovered for further
recording.
– To play a DVD±R on other DVD
player, it must be finalised (see page 36
“Playing your recordings (DVD±R) on
other DVD players”). After this is done,
no more data can be added to the disc.
IMPORTANT!
