Usage Precautions
Please read these precautions before you operate this unit.
If this unit is suddenly moved from a cold to a warm place,
dew may form on the tape and inside this unit.
Keep this unit away from flower vases, tubs, sinks, etc. If liquids
are spilled into this unit, serious damage could occur. If you spill
any liquid into this unit, consult qualified service personnel.
ª Humidity and Dust
Lightning
Avoid places where there is high humidity or very dusty,
which may cause damage to internal parts.
To avoid damage by lightning, disconnect the aerial plug from this
unit.
Cleaning this unit
Do not obstruct the ventilation holes
Wipe this unit with a clean, dry cloth. Never use cleaning fluid or
other chemicals. Do not use compressed air to remove any dust.
The ventilation holes prevent abnormal increases in temperature.
Do not block or cover these holes. Avoid covering holes with soft
materials such as cloth or paper.
Stacking
Avoid high temperature
Place this unit in a horizontal position, and do not place anything
heavy on it.
Keep this unit away from extreme heat sources such as direct
sunlight, heating radiators, or closed automobiles.
If dew forms in this unit
Dew may form in the unit if:
≥This unit is in a room where the heater has just been turned on.
≥This unit is in a room with steam or high humidity.
≥This unit is brought from cold surroundings into a well-heated
room.
≥This unit is suddenly brought from cool surroundings, such as an
air-conditioned room or car, to a place which is hot and humid.
Avoid magnets or magnetized objects
Never bring a magnet or magnetized object near this unit as it will
adversely affect the performance of this unit.
Keep the unit away from magnets, to avoid any adverse effect on
performance for both the unit and the equipment.
Do not place fingers or other objects inside
Do not attempt to disassemble this unit. Touching internal parts of
this unit is dangerous, and may cause serious damage. There are
no user serviceable parts inside.
Note:
Do not operate the unit for at least 1 hour if any of the above
conditions occur. This unit does not incorporate a dew
sensor.
Video deck and cassette tape information
Surge Absorber
Dirt on the video heads
For added protection for this product, these models are equipped
with new surge absorbing circuits which prevents damage due to
power surges caused by induced lightning.
≥This function may not be effective for surges by direct lightning.
If the video heads get dirty, pictures will not be recorded or played
back clearly. (See the following conditions.)
Normal picture Small amount of dirt Large amount of dirt
Longrun Head System
This longrun head system enables approximately 8,000 hours of
recording/playback with high quality images. Newly developed
head cylinder with narrower head windows and tapered cylinder
design effectively protects heads from dust and prevents head
clogging. Plus, “Alumina” Head Cleaner further enhanced cleaning
efficiency.
≥Based on in-house tests with Panasonic video cassettes. Actual
head life may vary according to conditions of use, tape type,
temperature, humidity, etc.
If this happens, insert and eject a cassette 5–10 times
successively to remove the dirt from the video heads.
If a clear picture is not produced, insert a commercially available
cleaning cassette. Then, press [REC¥] (¥REC/OTR)
(l page 7, 9) and keep it running for approximate 10 seconds to
clean the video heads.
If the problem still persists after performing all of the measures
listed above, contact a service personnel to request assistance.
Tapes
≥You can use tapes with the VHS and S-VHS marks, but this unit
is unable to make full use of the characteristics of S-VHS tapes.
≥Break out the tape’s tab to prevent
accidental erasure. Cover the hole with a
double layer of adhesive tape when you
want to use the tape for recording again.
Heads mainly become dirty because of scratched or dirty tapes,
use of the unit in places where temperature and humidity are high,
dust in the air and the other reasons.
Never use tapes on which juice has been spilt or those that are
extremely damaged since this will not only cause the heads to
become dirty, but will also make the unit malfunction.

These terminals can be used for either interlace or progressive output and
provide a purer picture than the S-VIDEO OUT terminal.
Connection using these terminals outputs the color difference signals (PB/
PR) and luminance signal (Y) separately in order to achieve high fidelity in
reproducing colors.
≥The description of the component video input terminals depends on the
television or monitor (e.g. Y/PB/PR, Y/B-Y/R-Y, Y/CB/CR). Connect to
terminals of the same color.
≥When making this connection, ensure you connect the audio cables (not
supplied) to the corresponding audio input terminals on the television.
≥After making this connection, change the black level for a better picture
(Black Level Control lpage 49).
To enjoy progressive video
1) Connect to the component video input terminals on a 480P compatible
television. (Video will not be displayed correctly if connected to an
incompatible television.)
2) In SET UP menus, set “Progressive Out (Component)” to “Enable”
(lpage 49).
3) Change “Video output mode” to “480P” in the on-screen menu (lpage 46).
≥All televisions manufactured by Panasonic and that have 480P input connectors
are compatible. Consult the manufacturer if you have another brand of television.

Cable Connection
Cable-This Unit-TV (For CATV/PAY Channels Recording/Playback)
The unit has an extended range, and can tune the Low-Band, Mid-Band, Super-Band, Hyper-Band, Ultra-Band, and Special cable channels
(Channels A-5sA-1, AsW, AAsFFF, GGGsWWW, WWWr1sWWWr12, 100s125, 5A). Also, the unit can tune to any of the 56 UHF
channels (14s69). Refer to Channel Set on page 29 .
BASIC Hook-Up
Since the unit can tune Mid and Super Bands, this connection will provide the reception of
all cable channels except those which are intentionally scrambled.
However, if you subscribe to a special channel which is scrambled you will probably have a
descrambler box for proper reception. The unit by itself cannot properly receive a
scrambled program since it does not contain a descrambler. In order for the unit to properly
receive a scrambled program, your existing descrambler must be used. There are two
commonly used methods of connection in this case.

Since the unit has an extended range of tuning, tuning-programing of non-scrambled Mid-Band and Super-Band TV programs is possible.
When a cable converter or descrambler box is connected to the unit, all timer-controlled recording functions will continue to operate with
the exception of charging channels automatically. CATV Channel selection will have to be performed with the cable converter. Timercontrolled recording from CATV Channels is therefore limited to one channel at any given time.

Auto SP/EP Change Function
If, during a timer recording performed in SP mode, this unit
determines that the remaining tape time is insufficient to record the
program to its end, the Auto SP/EP Change function automatically
changes the tape speed to EP to ensure that the whole program
will be recorded.
Depending on the remaining tape length, recording may be
performed in EP mode from the start. However, if the remaining
tape time is still not sufficient in this case, the program cannot be
recorded to the end.

Sound is divided into channels based on the sound’s role.
Example: 5.1 channel

≥ Center speaker— 1 channel
≥ Surround speakers— 1 left channel and 1 right channel
To process a DVD-R, CD-R or CD-RW disc recorded on by DVD
recorder, etc. so that it can be played back by a player.
Frame and field
Frames are the still pictures that go together to make a moving
picture. A frame is made up of 2 fields..

amount of sound output)
The following are indicated on the On-Screen Menu Icons.

Frame
Field
Field
≥A frame still is made up of two alternating fields, so the picture
may appear blurred, but overall quality is high.
≥A field still is not blurred, but it has only half the information of a
frame still so picture quality is lower.
ID3 tag
Bitstream
Decoder
An MP3 file has an area in which the character-based information,
referred to as ID3 tag, is stored. The information of the track, such
as the title, artist name, etc. can be stored here. The information
can be displayed on players supporting the ID3 tag when a track is
played back. However, this unit cannot because it does not support
the ID3 tag.
A decoder restores the coded audio signals on DVDs to normal.
This is called decoding.
Interlace and progressive output
Digitized and compressed audio signal
It is decoded by decoders into multi-channel audio signals, such as
5.1 channels.
Dolby Pro Logic
NTSC, the video signal standard, has 480 interlaced (I) scan lines,
whereas progressive scanning uses twice the number of scan
lines. This is called 480P. To output progressive video, connect the
Component video out terminal on the rear panel of this unit to the
component video input terminals and press [PROGRESSIVE
OUT] so that “PR ON” appears. You can enjoy video quality higher
than that of the conventional VIDEO OUT or S-VIDEO OUT
terminals.
A surround system where a 4-channel audio track is recorded as 2
channels and then is restored to 4 channels for play.
I/P/B
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals
can also be 5.1-channel audio. A large amount of audio
information can be recorded on one disc using this method.
The DVD recording system shares the data commonly used by
screens and uses screen-independent data individually for each
screen to store the data on the disc efficiently.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters around the
world. There is good separation between the channels, so realistic
sound effects are possible.
≥I-picture (Intra coded picture):
A frame recorded independently as reference for commonly
used data
≥P-picture (Predictive coded picture):
This picture is calculated based on past I- or P-pictures.
≥B-picture (Bidirectionally-predictive coded picture):
This picture is calculated by comparing past and future I- and
P-pictures so it has the lowest volume of information.
Dynamic range
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound
that can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the
highest level of sound before distortion occurs.
I-picture has the best quality and is the best to use when adjusting
the picture.
Linear PCM (pulse code modulation)
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on
CDs.
This unit outputs linear PCM signals fed from the OPTICAL
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminal with 2 channels.

MP3 (MPEG AUDIO Layer3 )
Title and chapter (DVD-Video)
One of audio data compression methods adopted by MPEG.
The audio data can be compressed into approx. 1/10 with only
slight degradation of sound quality.
The content of a DVD-Video is divided into larger segments (titles)
and smaller segments (chapters). They are identified by title
numbers and chapter numbers.
Example:
Multi-session
(b)
(a)
This means recording data onto a CD-R/CD-RW disc several
times. “Read-in/Program area/Read-out” of the data on a disc
makes one session.
If data, such as music is added onto a pre-recorded CD-R/RW
disc, a new session will be added. Such a disc is referred to as a
multisession disc.
Normal audio CD players can play back only the first session. On
the other hand, this unit can play back 2 or more sessions.

them to an amplifier. The signals are free from noises caused by
external electrical effects.
The content of a Video CD or CD is divided into some segments
(tracks) and they are identified by track numbers.
Example:
Pan&Scan/Letterbox
(a)
In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they be
viewed on a widescreen television with an aspect ratio of 16:9.
This means you can view most material with the intended aspect
ratio on a widescreen television.
Material with this ratio will not fit onto a standard television with an
aspect ratio of 4:3. Two styles of picture, “Pan&Scan” and “Letterbox”, deal with this problem.
a) Track 1
b) Track 2
c) Track 3
(b)
(c)
(d)
(e)
d) Track 4
e) Track 5
WMA (Windows Media Audio)
One of compression formats developed by Microsoft Corporation.
It achieves the same sound quality as MP3 with a file size that is
smaller than that of MP3.
≥Pan&Scan
The sides are cut off so the picture fills the
screen.
≥Letterbox
A black belt appears on top and bottom of the
screen to present 16:9 aspect ratio video on the
4:3 aspect ratio screen.
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and
information with menus.
In this manual, playing back of the contents of a Video CD using
the menu screen is referred to as “Menu play” for Video CD.
Sampling frequency
Helpful Hints
This is the number of samples of sound taken per second during
conversion to a digital signal. A high sampling frequency results in
a sound close to the original when played back.

Q&A
Connection
Timer recording
I have a TV equipped with both the S-video input and the
component video inputs. Which one should be used?
≥To view only the video on the DVD section, it is recommended to
connect to the component video inputs. (lpage 13)
The component video inputs allow the signals on a DVD to be
output as they were recorded and reproduce colors with higher
fidelity than using the S-video input terminal.
However, this connection does not output the video on the VCR.
To view the video on the VCR, connect the OUT1(VCR/DVD)
terminal to the video input terminal on the TV.
Is it possible to view programs on another cassette when the
timer recording is set?
Or is it possible to replace the cassette?
≥It is possible when you cancel the timer recording set.
Press [TIMER
] to turn off the indication “
” in the unit’s
display, then proceed with the operation. (lpage 22)
Is it necessary to turn on the TV?
≥If only the timer recording is being set on this unit, it is not
necessary to turn on the TV.
I would like to enjoy Dolby Digital or 5.1-ch surround audio of
DTS. What equipment is necessary?
≥To enjoy the 5.1-ch surround audio, use an AV amplifier with a
built-in decoder (with 5.1-ch audio input terminals) and 6
speakers.
Disc playback
Can DVDs bought overseas be played back?
≥If the DVDs have the region number, “ALL” or “1” and are
recorded in NTSC format, they can be played back.
Check this on the jacket of the DVDs.
Video Cassette
Can Video CDs bought overseas be played back?
≥If the Video CDs are recorded in NTSC format, they can be
played back.
Can I use an S-VHS cassette to record and play?
≥Yes, you can. However, the unit only records VHS, even on an
S-VHS cassette. (lpage 20)
Cassettes recorded in S-VHS mode can be played back, but the
S-VHS’s original picture quality is not reproduced.
Can discs having no region number be played back?
≥The DVD region number means that the DVD conforms to the
Standards. Any DVDs not conforming to the Standards cannot be
played back.
VCR playback
Can cassettes recorded overseas be played back?
Yes, if they were recorded in NTSC format in the SP, LP or EP
mode.
VCR/DVD output switching
Immediately after the unit is turned on, the output is
sometimes switched to DVD automatically. Why?
≥Some discs may automatically start to be played back when the
unit is turned on when such a disc is inserted.
If “OUT1 [VCR/DVD]” in the VCR MENU “OPTION” is set to
“AUTO”, the DVD video output is automatically selected when the
disc starts to be played back. If you do not wish to automatically
switch to the DVD in such cases, select “MANUAL” for “OUT1
[VCR/DVD]” in the VCR MENU “OPTION”. (lpage 30)
If it is set to “AUTO”, the DVD is not switched to when a unit with
no disc is turned on.
Can cassettes recorded in the VP mode of this unit be played
back on other VCRs?
≥No.
Play back cassettes recorded in the VP mode on this unit.
Recording
Is it possible to only listen to the left-channel audio or rightchannel audio for stereophonic broadcasting (only the main
audio channel or sub audio channel for bilingual
broadcasting) while recording?
≥Yes, it is possible.
Select the desired channel with [AUDIO]. (lpage 31)
Is it possible to record only the left-channel audio or rightchannel audio for stereophonic broadcasting (only the main
audio channel or sub audio channel for bilingual
broadcasting)?
≥No. It is not possible.
Select the desired channel with [AUDIO] when playing back.
