To Play Back NTSC Video Cassettes on
Your PAL TV
(Quasi-NTSC Playback Function)
(For NV-FJ732F and NV-FJ632F)
This VCR allows playback of tapes recorded in the NTSC
system on a normal PAL system TV with the same
operations as usual.
On some TVs, however, the playback picture may roll up or
down.
• If your TV has a V-HOLD control or equivalent adjustment
function, use it to try to stop the picture movement.
Crystal View Control Super (CVC Super)
The crystal view control function ensures that you always
obtain the optimum picture quality so that you get the best
picture automatically.
While the VCR is turned on, the [CVC] indication is always
displayed to show that the Crystal View Control Super is
activated.
Child Lock Function buttons
([OK] (24) and [OFF (i)] (22))
This function deactivates all buttons on the VCR and the
remote control. Use this function, when you do not want
other people to operate the VCR.
To Activate the Child Lock Function
Hold down the [OK] (24) and the [OFF (i)] (22)
simultaneously until the [!" hold] indication appears in the
VCR display.
• If you press a button while the Child Lock function is on, the
[!" hold] indication appears in the VCR display to inform
you that no operation is possible.
To Cancel the Child Lock Function
Hold down the [OK] (24) and the [OFF (i)] (22)
simultaneously until the [!" hold] indication disappears.
• If you disconnect the power cable, the Child Lock function
is automatically cancelled after the power backup time of
approximately 60 minutes has elapsed.
• If you cannot cancel the Child Lock function, press the
[EXIT] (27) and perform the operation.
NICAM Broadcasting System
NV-FJ732F, NV-FJ632F and NV-FJ628F feature the NICAM
digital sound system, a 2-channel sound broadcast system
that provides either 2 high-quality stereo sound tracks or 2
independent mono sound tracks, M1 and M2.
NICAM programmes are always accompanied by standard
(mono) sound broadcasts, and during playback, you can
select the desired sound with the [AUDIO] (17).
• The NICAM stereo sound can only be recorded on the Hi-Fi
audio tracks.
• If, for some reason, you want to record a stereo, bilingual or
NICAM TV programme intentionally in mono on the Hi-Fi
audio tracks, set [Mono] to [ON] for the programme position
on which the desired programme is broadcast, as
described on page 17.
