Power Source for the Remote Controller:
The remote controller is powered by 2 “AA”,
“UM3” or “R6” size batteries. The life of the
batteries is about one year, although this
depends on the frequency of use.
Precautions for Battery Replacement:
≥Load the new batteries with their polarity (+
and -) aligned correctly.
≥Do not apply heat to the batteries, or an
internal short circuit may occur.
≥If you do not intend to use the remote
controller for a long period of time, remove
the batteries and store them in a cool and dry
place.
≥Remove spent batteries immediately and
dispose of them.
≥Do not use an old and a new battery together,
and never use an alkaline battery with a
manganese battery.
≥Do not use rechargeable batteries.

Cable Connection
The VCR has an extended range, and can tune
the Low-Band, Mid-Band, Super-Band, HyperBand, Ultra-Band, and Special cable channels
(Channels A-5–A-1, A–W, AA–FFF, GGG–
WWW, WWWr1–WWWr12, 100–125, 5A).
Also, the VCR can tune to any of the 56 UHF
channels (14–69). Refer to Storing TV
Broadcasts in your VCR on page 14.
BASIC Hook-Up
The cable hook-up shown at the bottom left
allows VCR-TV functions except for viewing
one channel while recording another.

However, if you subscribe to a special channel
which is scrambled you will probably have a
descrambler box for proper reception. The VCR
by itself cannot properly receive a scrambled
program since it does not contain a
descrambler. In order for the VCR to properly
receive a scrambled program, your existing
descrambler must be used. There are two
commonly used methods of connection in this
case.

The above cable hook-up allows VCR
functions, including viewing one channel while
recording another, but it requires two cable TV
Converter/Descrambler Boxes, one Switch Box
and one 2-Way Splitter.
Since the VCR 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 VCR,
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. Timer-controlled
recording from CATV Channels is therefore
limited to one channel at any given time.

Recording of a TV Program Until
its End
(Auto SP/EP Change Function )
If, during a timer recording performed in the SP
mode, the VCR 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 the 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.

≥Alternatively, you can set the category on
the Navigator list. (See page 34 for details.)
≥This function is activated when JET

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.
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 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.
Avoid High Temperature
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, to avoid any
adverse effect on performance for both the
VCR and the equipment.
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.
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 well-heated 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.
Note:
≥Do not operate the VCR for at least 1 hour
if any of the above conditions occur.
This VCR does not incorporate a dew
sensor.
Helpful Hints
Keep the VCR away from extreme heat
sources such as direct sunlight, heating
radiators, or closed automobiles.

Dirt on the video heads
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
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) 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.
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 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.
