VHS Deck and Cassette Tape Information
ª Surge Absorber
≥It is not possible to fully obtain the high resolution that S-VHS is
capable of.
It is not possible to record in the S-VHS system with this unit.
For further protection for this product, these models are equipped
with new surge absorbing circuits which prevents damage due to
power surges caused by lightning.
≥This function may not be effective for surges by direct lightning.
ª Dirt on the video heads
ª Crystal View Control
If the video heads get dirty, pictures will not be recorded or played
back clearly. (See the following conditions.)
The crystal view control function ensures the optimum picture
quality so that you get the best picture automatically.
Normal picture
Small amount of dirt
Large amount of dirt
ª 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 protect heads from dust and prevents head
clogging. Plus, “Alumina” Head Cleaner enhances the 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.
ª 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 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.
If this happens, insert and eject a cassette 5–10 times
successively to remove the dirt from the video heads.
If the problem still persists after performing above, contact a
service personnel.
Heads mainly become dirty because of scratched or dirty tapes,
use of the unit under high temperature and humidity or under the
dust and other reasons.
Never use tapes on which liquids have been spilt or those that are
extremely damaged since these will cause not only the heads to
become dirty, but also the unit malfunction.
Tab
ª S-VHS Quasi Playback (SQPB)
It is possible to play back tapes recorded in the S-VHS system.
≥Some picture noise may occur depending on the type of tape
used.
The Remote Control
ª Installing the batteries
ª Use
Insert the batteries with the polarity (+ and -) correctly aligned.
Aim at the receiver window (l 6), avoiding obstacles, at a
maximum range of 7 m directly in front of the unit.
≥Keep the transmission window and the unit’s sensor free from
dust.
≥Operation can be affected by strong light sources, such as direct
sunlight, and the glass doors on cabinets.
R6, AA, UM-3
Notes:
The service life of the batteries is approximately 1 year.
However, it varies considerably depending on the frequency of
use.
≥When the batteries are exhausted, remove them immediately
and dispose them correctly.
≥Do not mix old battery with new battery.
≥Do not mix different battery types, i.e. Alkaline and Manganese.
≥Do not use rechargeable (Ni-Cd) batteries.
≥Do not heat or short-circuit the batteries.
≥When you do not use the remote control for a long time, take out
the batteries and store them in a cool, dry place.

COMPONENT VIDEO terminal (progressive out)
S VIDEO terminal
These terminals can be used for either interlace or progressive
output and provide a clearer picture than the S VIDEO terminal.
Connection using these terminals outputs the colour difference
signals (PB/PR) and luminance signal (Y) separately in order to
achieve high fidelity in reproducing colours.
≥The description of the component video input terminals depends
on the TV or monitor (e.g. Y/PB/PR, Y/B-Y/R-Y, Y/CB/CR). Connect
to terminals of the same colour.
The S VIDEO terminal achieves a more vivid
picture than the VIDEO OUT terminal by
separating the chrominance (C) and luminance
(Y) signals (Actual results depend on the TV).
≥Connect to a different terminal group (e.g.
“VIDEO 2”) than that you used for the
connection through this unit’s VHS/DVD OUT
terminal. Picture from the VHS section will not
appear when you use the same group input
terminal connections because the S Video
terminal input takes precedence.
¬ To enjoy progressive video (l 13)
≥These connections are for the DVD section only.
Carry out the Basic Connections described above to view video from the
VHS section.
≥When making this connection, ensure that you connect the audio cables
(not supplied) to the corresponding audio input terminals on the TV.
≥You may need to change the video-input mode on the TV to view video from
the VHS and DVD sections. Read your TV’s operating instructions for

Glossary
Audio channel for DVD (ch)
ID3 tag
Sound is divided into channels based on the sound’s role.
Example: 5.1 channel
≥Front speakers— 1 left channel and 1 right channel
≥Center speaker— 1 channel
≥Surround speakers— 1 left channel and 1 right channel
MP3 file that 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.
≥Subwoofer— 1 channel a0.1 (the ratio of bass to the total
amount of sound output)
Interlace and progressive output
The following are indicated on the On-Screen Menu Icons.
Example:
3/2 .1 ch
(1) .1: Subwoofer signal
(not displayed if there is no subwoofer signal)
(2) 0: No surround
1: Mono surround
2: Stereo surround (left/right)
(3) 1: Center
2: Front leftiFront right
3: Front leftiFront rightiCenter
Bitstream
Digitized and compressed audio signal
It is decoded by decoders into multi-channel audio signals, such as
5.1 channels.
Decoder
A device restores the coded audio signals on DVDs to normal. This
is called decoding.
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.
I/P/B
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.
≥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.
I-picture has the best quality and is the best to use when adjusting
the picture.
Linear PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals
are also compatible with 5.1-channel audio. A large amount of
audio information can be recorded on one disc using this method.
Dolby Pro Logic
A surround system where a 4-channel audio track is recorded as 2
channels and then is restored to 4 channels for play.
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.
Film and video
DVD-Videos are recorded using either film or video. Usually, film is
recorded at 24 frames per second, the rate movies are filmed at,
while video is recorded at 30 frames per second.
Frame and field
Frames are the still pictures that go together to make a moving
picture. A frame is made up of 2 fields.
=
+
Field
Field
Frame
≥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.
46
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on
CDs.
Multi-session
≥This means recording data onto a CD-R/CD-RW disc several
times. “Read-in/Programme 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.
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.
