Tuning the TV to Your VCR
The VCR supplies a signal to the TV via the RF coaxial cable
on channel AU28-69, or NZ21-69.
It is possible to view the video picture on your TV in the same
way that you watch TV broadcasts.
If you have connected the VCR to the TV through the Audio/
Video input sockets, then you do not need to follow the
procedure below.
Pre-programmed TV Channels
(NV-FJ600A/Australia)
The local TV broadcast channels 2, 7, 9, 10 and 28 are
factory-preset in this VCR.
That is, if you can receive television broadcasts on VHF
channels 2, 7, 9, 10 and UHF channel 28, these are already
tuned on the programme positions with the matching
numbers. However, it is possible to cancel these settings and
tune the local TV broadcast channels to any desired
programme position.
Plug in Auto Tuning
(NV-FJ600EA/New Zealand)
When the VCR is turned on after connecting the aerial cable
and the mains lead, Auto Tuning starts.
Auto tuning searches for TV stations from VHF minimum to
UHF maximum and memorizes every tuned programme
position.
≥ If you turn the VCR off during Auto Tuning, Auto Tuning will
stop halfway.
≥ If the VCR starts playback during Auto Tuning, Auto Tuning
will stop halfway.

according to the colour TV system of the TV. (See page 16.)
VCR Auto Power On
When you insert a video cassette, the VCR switches on
automatically.
¡ NTSC 3.58 recording requires “NTSC INPUT SELECT” to
be in the AUTO or 3.58 position (see page 16), however if
“NTSC INPUT SELECT” is in this position when recording
a NTSC 3.58 signal, no colour is available for the PAL TV.
Once the recording is completed, you then need to select
“on PAL TV” to view the recording in colour on PAL TV.
When playing back the PAL tapes:
You do not need to set “NTSC PB SELECT”.
Note for only NTSC Playback on PAL system TV
This function is designed to allow only the playback of tapes
recorded by NTSC signals on a PAL system TV. The NTSC
signal is not completely converted to a PAL signal. For this
reason, images played back by this function cannot be
recorded correctly on other VCRs.
Notes:
≥ Audio reproduction of linear (conventionally recorded)
tapes will be monaural when played back on the FM Hi-Fi
video recorders.
≥ Cue, review or slow playback will be automatically
cancelled after 10 minutes, and still playback after 5
minutes.
≥ On some TVs, the playback picture may roll up or down;
adjust this using the V-HOLD control on the TV. TVs not
equipped with a V-HOLD control cannot correct this
condition. The playback picture may shrink vertically, and
black bars may appear both on the top and bottom of the
screen. This does not indicate a malfunction.
≥ In Cue and Review playback, noise bars and distortions
may occur on the screen. However, this is not a
malfunction.
¡ During cue, review, still or slow playback, the picture may
not be in colour. Alternatively, the top of the TV screen may
be distorted.
≥ During playback function other than normal playback,
horizontal noise bars may appear in the picture, the colour
of the picture may be unstable, or the picture may be
otherwise distorted.
≥ When you play back a tape recorded in the LP mode, the
picture may be in black and white.
≥ When you play back a tape recorded in the EP mode, the
picture and the sound may be unstable.
However, these are not malfunctions.
≥ When playing back a tape which was recorded on another
VCR, it may be necessary to adjust tracking control. In
some cases the picture quality may still be inferior. This is
due to format constraints.
≥ Depending on the TV set used, the playback picture may
roll up or down during special playback (Pause, Cue,
Review, or Slow playback mode). However, this is not an
indication of a malfunction.
VCR-off Playback
When the VCR is off, an inserted cassette can be played

the AUDIO OUT button ? during playback.
≥ The NICAM digital stereo sound can only be recorded on
the Hi-Fi audio track.
≥ When NICAM programme is being received, the indicators
are lit to inform you of the type of broadcast. (See page 14.)
≥ To record the regular sound (ordinary normal sound) on
the FM audio tracks when a NICAM programme is
received, set “MONAURAL” to “ON”. (See page 17.)

If the VCR determines that the remaining tape time is
insufficient to record the programme to its end during a timer

Usage Precautions
Please read these precautions before you operate this VCR.
Avoid Sudden Changes in Temperature
If the VCR is suddenly moved from a cold to a warm place,
dew may form on the tape and inside the VCR. In this case,
the “8” dew indicator will flash on and off and the VCR will
not operate.
Humidity and Dust
Avoid places where there is high humidity or much dust,
which may cause damage to internal parts.
Do Not Obstruct the Ventilation Holes
The ventilation holes prevent abnormal increases in
temperature. Do not block or cover these holes. Avoid
covering the holes with soft materials such as cloth or paper.
Avoid High Temperature
Keep the VCR away from extreme heat sources such as
direct sunlight, heating radiators, or closed automobiles.
Avoid Magnets or Magnetized objects
Never bring a magnet or magnetized object near the VCR as
it will adversely affect its performance of the VCR.
Keep the VCR away from other equipments as much as
possible when using it, avoid any adverse effect on
performance for both the VCR and the equipment.
If Dew Forms in the VCR
Dew may form in the VCR if:
≥ The VCR is in a room where the heater has just been
turned on.
≥ The VCR is in a room with steam or high humidity.
≥ The VCR is brought from cold surroundings into a wellheated room.
≥ The VCR is suddenly brought from cool surroundings, such
as an air-conditioned room or car, to a place which is hot
and humid.
When dew forms in the VCR, the “8” dew indicator on the
display flashes on and off and all the function buttons are
made non-operational to protect the tape and the video
head. When the dew indicator flashes, wait until this indicator
disappears.
≥ If dew forms inside the VCR while the VCR is off, it will turn
on automatically and the dew indicator will flash on and off.
As soon as the dew disappears, the VCR will turn itself off
again.
Dirt on the video heads
If the video heads get dirty, pictures will not be recorded or
played back clearly.
(See the following conditions.)

Do Not Place Fingers or Other Objects Inside
Do not attempt to disassemble the VCR. Touching internal
parts of this VCR is dangerous, and may cause it serious
damage. There are no user serviceable parts inside.
Avoid Water
Keep the VCR away from flower vases, tubs, sinks, etc. If
liquids are spilled into the VCR, serious damage could occur.
If you spill any liquid into the VCR, consult qualified service
personnel.
Lightning
To avoid damage by lightning, disconnect the aerial plug
from the VCR.
Cleaning the VCR
Wipe the VCR with a clean, dry cloth. Never use cleaning
fluid or other chemicals. Do not use compressed air to
remove any dust.
Stacking
Place the VCR in a horizontal position, and do not place
anything heavy on it.
32
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 to request assistance.
Head cleaning by service agents is not covered by
warranty.
