To Delete the Jet Navigator Data of a Single Video
Cassette Tape:
Keep the CANCEL button ; pressed for more than
5 seconds while the Jet Navigator list appears.
[– –] appears on the list.
– See page 13 on the way to delete all the Jet Navigator
data stored in the VCR’s memory.
Notes:
– The Jet Navigator list is stored in each cassette.
– Signals approximately 10 seconds before and after the
current tape position are checked. (During this checking,
[CHECKING JET NAVIGATOR DATA.] is displayed on the
TV screen.)
– Checking cannot be performed properly when signals are
attempted to be checked at portions of the tape where
there are no signals such as at unrecorded portions of the
tape. In this case, press the NAVI button 4 at a portion of
the tape where a programme has been recorded of this
VCR. This will allow signal checking to be performed more
reliably. When a signal can still not be found, [CAN NOT

you cannot find the beginning of the programme.
– Up to 20 cassettes and 50 programmes can be registered.
– If 50 recorded programmes data is already stored in
memory and you attempt to store timer recording data for
another programme, the message [REMAINING
PROGRAMME 0. DELETE JET NAVIGATOR DATA.]
appears. If you attempt to make a new recording, this same
message also appears after you insert the cassette and the
Jet Navigator data is checked. As each timer recording or
manual recording is finished, the programme data is
deleted, starting from the oldest data.
– When a new programme is attempted to be recorded if
programmes equivalent to 20 cassettes are already stored
in memory, [REMAINING CASSETTE 0. FOR JET

after another at high speed. This lets you quickly and easily
check the contents of a cassette and find a desired
programme.
Index signals are automatically recorded in the following
cases:
– When you start a recording by pressing the REC button I,
REC/OTR button ^, or DIRECT REC button Q.
– When a timer recording starts.
– When you press the REC button I on the remote control
during recording.
Conditions for correct operation of the Index search function:

desired programme is located on the tape) to start the
index search.
VCR display
For example, if you want to
search for the 2nd recorded
programme in forward direction,
press the INDEX L button L
twice.
– The VCR fast-forwards or rewinds the tape and
searches for the specified index signal (the beginning
of the desired recorded programme).
When it has been found, playback starts automatically.
To Cancel the Index Search or to Stop Playback:
Press the Stop button F.
Notes:
– Searching in either direction is possible up to the 20th
index signal.
– If you press either of the INDEX button L too many times,
simply press the other INDEX button L (indicating the
opposite direction) to correct it. In this way, you can reduce
the displayed figure down to 1.
– The figure on the VCR display decreases by 1 every time
an index signal is located.
Index signals are automatically recorded in the following
cases:
– When you start a recording by pressing the REC button I,
REC/OTR button ^, or DIRECT REC button Q.
– When a timer recording starts.
– When you press the REC button I on the remote control
during recording.
Conditions for correct operation of the Intro-Jet Scan
function:
– VCR must be switched on, be in the playback mode or be
in the standby mode.
– Each programme recorded on the tape must be at least
15 minutes long.
Preparations
– Display the VCR picture on the TV.
