Notes on operation
* This unit is designed with the NV-E180 cassette tape as a reference.
« Depending on the type of video cassette used, the recordable time will differ.
+ The actual recording enable time will be slightly longer than the “Recording enable time” given in the above
table although this wili depend on the tape used.
For instance, it is possible to record for about 27 hours using a 180- minute tape in the 24H mode.
+ A tape recorded in a time lapse mode can be played back in quick motion in the 3-hour mode.
« A tape recorded in the 3-hour mode can be played back in slow motion using the time lapse mode.
Selecting the cassette tape
» The unit is designed as a product required to exhibit high reliability in surveillance, security, monitoring, etc. In
order to maintain its recording reliability, it is recommended that the Panasonic video tapes listed below be used.

Notes on operation
If the PAUSE/STILL button is pressed during recording, the unit is set to the pause mode, and after about 5
minutes in this mode it is transferred to the stop mode.
Neat frame-to-frame continuity is not achieved if the recording mode is set again after the PAUSE/STILL button
15 pressed during recording. |
When the MENU/REC LOCK switch has been set to OFF, other operations can be performed during recording.
When restoration-of-power-after-failure recording is performed,recording can be continued in the same time mode
even if the power should fail provided that the power is restored within about one week. (This applies only if
the power has been supplied continuousiy for 3 or more days.) |
When performing auto repeat recording or timer recording, do not neglect to conduct the routine inspections.
When recording images from a black-and-white camera, set the video signal mode on Menu Screen 4 to B_W.
Remove the cassette tape if the unit is to be left standing for a prolonged period of time.
When the power supply is interrupted during recording (with the power switch still ON), a non-recorded portion
will be made in the beginning of the tape travel, or the tape will be over-recorded at its ending section. But
this is not a malfunction,

Tips For Better Recording
In order to ensure greater reliability in monitoring, surveillance and other continuous operations lasting many hours,
this unit comes with some safety functions for recording. Read the following descriptions of these functions before
proceeding to operate the unit.
Recording mode lock
There are two ways, as described below, to maintain
the recording mode during recording by disabling the
operations of the power switch as weil as the TIME
MODE and operation buttons.
O Set the MENU/REC LOCK switch to REC LOCK.
O set REC LOCK on Menu Screen 1 to ON. (See
Note)
The following switch and connectors are operational even
if the MENU/REC LOCK switch is set to REC LOCK.

this meter provides useful information for regular in-
spection, maintenance and servicing involving the
cleaning and replacement of the inside parts, etc. When

* If the power is restored after a power failure when
the remaining charge of the back-up battery is low,
the unit automatically proceeds with recording in the
24H mode of the EXT REC mode. However, unless
REC T-MODE on menu screen 4 has been set to
OFF, recording will commence in the time mode set.
Note:
Once the recording mode is established, recording
cannot be released until REC LOCK on Menu Screen 1
is set OFF,
Timer Recording
There are two methods of timer recording: one uses the internal timer and the other uses an external timer.
Internal timer recording
Start time and stop time
Bear in mind the following points when setting these times.
* When the stop time is set later than the start time:
Recording will commence at the start time on the day concerned and stop at the end time on the same day.
Example: 8:30 <17:00
* When the start time is set later than the stop time or the start time and stop time for weekly recording
(weekly timer) are the same: |
Recording starts at the start time on the day concerned and ends at the stop time on the following day.
Example: 17:00 <8:30
* When the start time and stop time are the same (for weekly recording):
Recording starts at 8:30 on the day concerned and ends at 8:30 on the following day.
Example: 8:30 = 8:30
To record for an entire day, set the start time and stop time to 00:00.
* Weekly recording (weekly timer) can be set by the day of the week.
* When (INTERNAL TIMER REC) on Menu Screen 5 is set to OFF for both the weekly timer and daily
recording (daily timer), nothing appears for the start or stop time. Timer recording is considered not to be
set.

Action taken after routine inspections
In the unlikely event of a problem with the unit, turn off the power, take hold of the power plug and disconnect it
from the power outlet, and consult with the dealer from whom the unit was purchased.
Regular inspections recommended
This unit has an hour meter which shows for how many hours the VTR has been used. When the MENU/REC
LOCK switch is set to MENU, Menu Screen 1 appears on the TV monitor, and the hour meter can be checked.
Use the hour meter as a rough guideline to cleaning or replacing the parts inside the unit. For further details,
consult with your dealer.
