• Use a decompression transfer rate of at least 128 Kbps when recording MP3 files.
Sound quality with MP3 files basically depends on the rate of compression/decompression you choose.
Getting audio CD quality sound requires an analog/digital sampling rate (conversion to MP3 format) of at
least 128 Kbps and up to 160 Kbps. However, choosing higher rates, like 192 Kbps or more, only rarely
give better sound quality. Conversely, files with sampling rates below 128 Kbps will not be played
properly.
• Do not try recording copyright protected MP3 files.
Certain "securized" files are encrypted and code protected to prevent illegal copying. These files are of the
following types: Windows MediaTM (registered trade mark of Microsoft Inc) and SDMITM (registered trade
mark of The SDMI Foundation). You cannot copy such files.
• Your DVD player only accepts one level of file directory. Consequently you must choose:
- either to save all your MP3 recording files at the root of the disc;
- and/or create folders in the directory for each artist or music type (e.g.classical, rock, jazz, etc)
• Important: The above recommendations cannot be taken as a guarantee that the DVD player will play MP3
recordings, or as an assurance of sound quality. You should note that certain technologies and methods
for MP3 file recording on CD-Rs prevent optimal playback of these files on your DVD player (degraded
sound quality and in some cases, inability of the player to read the files).

Before contacting the Samsung after-sales service, perform the following simple checks.
Problem
No power
Explanation/Solution
◆
◆
Check that the power plug is connected to a wall outlet.
Have you pressed the STANDBY/ON button?
You cannot insert a video cassette
◆
A video cassette can only be inserted with the window
side up and the safety tab facing you.
The television programme was not recorded
◆
◆
◆
Check the DVD-VCR aerial connections.
Is the DVD-VCR tuner properly set?
Check if the safety tab is intact on the cassette.
Timer recording was unsuccessful
◆
◆
◆
Was the STANDBY/ON button pressed to activate the timer?
Re-check the recording start/stop time settings.
If there was a power failure or interruption during timer
recording, the recording will have been cancelled.
No playback picture or the picture
is distorted
◆
Check to see if you are using a prerecorded tape.
You cannot see normal broadcasts
◆
◆
Check the TUNER/EXTERNAL setting. It should be on
TUNER.
Check the TV/VCR aerial connections.
Noise bars or streaks on playback
◆
Press the PROG/TRK (œ or ❷) buttons to minimize this effect.
When the ❿II button is pressed
during playback, the still picture
has severe “noise bars” streaks
◆
A still picture may have “noise bars”, depending on the
condition of the tape. Press the PROG/TRK (œ or ❷) buttons
during SLOW motion to minimize this effect.
Video Head Cleaning
◆
If poor pictures appear on a variety of cassettes, the video
heads may need cleaning. This is not a common problem
and unless it appears, the heads should not be cleaned.
When cleaning the video heads, read all instructions
provided with the head cleaning cassette. Incorrect head
cleaning can permanently damage the video heads.
If when tuning in your TV to the DVD-VCR
TV does not find the Screen
or the pattern when found suffers
from interference, it may be due to the
DVD-VCR output channel clashing with
the normal TV transmissions in your area.
To prevent this you will need to change the
DVD-VCR output channel in the following
way
Before requesting service (troubleshooting)
1. Remove the aerial input plug from the socket marked (aerial
symbol) on the rear of the DVD-VCR.
2. Carry out the instructions “Tuning Your Television for the DVDVCR” (see page 14).
3. Carry out the instructions “Setting the DVD-VCR output
Channel” (see page 23), move the channel number
several channels down from the original setting.
(example: from 38 to 40).
4. Replace the aerial plug into the socket marked (aerial symbol)
on the rear of the DVD-VCR.
5. Re-tune your TV to the DVD-VCR again by following
instructions “Tuning Your Television for the DVD-VCR”
(page 14).
6. If the problem still exists repeat steps 1 to 5 moving several
more channels away from the original setting.
