auto-repeat recording, the picture quality will eventually bagin to deteriorate. As a rule of thumb, the tape should be replaced with
à new one after about 50 uses.
* During auto repeat rewind mode, the VTR does not accept the alarm signal.
* When the alarm signal is input during auto repeat recording, the tape stops at its end and the alarm recording is
cancelled. In this case, auto repeat recording can be performed.
* |fapowerfallureoccurs during automatic rewind white auto repeat recording is in progress, the tape will be rewound as far as its
