Troubleshooting
Before Requesting Service
The VCR display is not illuminated:
The mains lead is not connected.
Check the connection.
The VCR is set to Power save mode.
Settings can be changed (see page 9).
The VCR display is set to OFF.
Settings can be changed (see page 9).
Safety devices are operating.
Disconnect the VCR from AC mains for one minute,
then check if the VCR can be operated.
The remote control does not work correctly
The signal from the remote control does not reach the VCR’s window,
or the distance is too long.
Remove obstructions between the VCR and the remote control
(its transmitting distance is about 7 metres).
The batteries in the remote control are exhausted, or the batteries have not been
inserted with the correct polarity.
Check the batteries and if necessary insert new batteries (see page 2).
The VCR is set to Power save mode.
Settings can be changed (see page 9).
The VCR display is illuminated, but the VCR cannot operate:
The VCR is in Timer recording Standby mode.
Cancel Standby mode by pressing the TIMER Button.
The child lock is activated.
Settings can be changed (see page 8).
The recording function does not work correctly
The VCR display
is flashing when you try to record.
In order to record, use a video cassette with an intact erasure
prevention tab (see page 6).
The Programmed recording function does not work.
The time and date must be set correctly (see page 8).
The VCR does not record, even though the recording has been programmed.
Set the start time and the time to stop recording correctly, and set the VCR
on Standby Recording by pressing the TIMER Button (see pages 6-7).
The picture or the sound is distorted:
The TV reception is not adjusted to the VCR.
Readjust the reception (see page 3).
The tracking is not set correctly.
Adjust the tracking manually (see page 14).
Picture distortion can be caused by using E300 cassettes
which were recorded with a slow tape speed (LP or EP).
You are advised not to use E300 cassettes.
The cassette is recorded in a tape speed, colour or video standard
which is not corresponding to the VCR setting.
Check which standard was used when the video cassette was recorded.
Setting of PAL or MESECAM can be adjusted manually (see page 8).
The Playback from NTSC is not possible.
The aerial cable or scart cable is not correctly connected or is defective.
Check the connections, aerial signal and cables
(replace cables if necessary).
Setting for SQPB (S-VHS Quasi Playback) is not correct.
Setting can be changed (see page 9).
The playback picture is distorted when you record the tape on EP mode
using MESECAM system. (This is not a functional fault).
We recommend PAL system for recording on EP mode.
The video heads are soiled or worn out.
Please contact service center for assistance.
Head cleaning by a service center is not covered by warranty.
