This advanced system makes it quick and easy to check the contents of an inserted cassette. It can also be used to quickly find
out which cassette in your collection contains a desired programme.
Whenever a cassette with an intact erasure prevention tab is inserted, the VCR first performs a brief check and then shows the
number of the cassette and its contents on the On Screen Display. To start playback of the desired programme, simply select it
on the On Screen Display and press the SEARCH button.
To index each recorded programme for the Tape Library System, this VCR automatically records the Library data (cassette
number, title”", name of TV station*?, recording time/date*?, category*, etc.) and stores the data in the VCR's memory*s when
the recording is performed.
"In case of TV stations that broadcast with EPG (Electronic Programme Guide) information, the title of the TV programme is
entered automatically. Otherwise, the name of the TV station or the programme position number is entered instead.
In case of a TV station without EPG information but with Teletext information, the title of the TV programme is entered
automatically, provided the “Title page” is correctly set (see page 64).
‘In case of a TV station with Teletext information, the name of the TV station is recorded automatically
**The VCR's clock must be set correctly.
“In case of a TV station with EPG information, the programme category will be recorded automatically.
** The VCR's memory can hold a maximum of 600 programmes with titles of 8 characters (or up to 900 programmes with titles
of fewer characters).
Precautions for Recording:
e We recommend that you use new tapes for recording.
® Each recorded programme should have length of at least 15 minutes.
® If you copy a cassette with a cassette number, the tape library data may not be copied correctly. Therefore, the VCR's Tape
Library System may not work correctly with such a copied cassette.
© When a new recording is made over existing recordings on a tape, the original programmes are deleted from the list.
® Before recording programmes, make sure that the tape length is set correctly on the On Screen Display. Otherwise, the tape
position bar of the Tape Library data does not display the actual tape position. With some tapes, the bar indication is not
accurate.
% The VCR's power back-up system protects the Tape Library data in the memory in case of a power failure and stores it for up
to 5 years when the YCR is not connected to an AC mains socket,
® When the recording is completed and you eject the cassette, the cassette number remains displayed on the VCR display for
approximately 30 seconds. Be sure to write this number on the cassette label.
® When the VCR's entire memory area has been used up by the Tape Library data, or when cassette numbers 1 through 999
have all been used, the indication “Library memory full!” appears on the TV screen for several seconds when recording is
completed. After this, recording is still possible but no new Tape Library data can be stored. In this case, delete the numbers
of cassettes that you do not need any more before making further recordings. (See page 51.)

This VCR has 99 programme positions that can be preset to receive TV stations.
Usually, if you switch the VCR on for the first time after making the necessary connections, the VCR will start the Download or
Auto Setup function automatically so that all available TV stations in the area can be received.
However, if Auto Setup is not successful due to extraordinary transmission circumstances, or if you want to change the name of
a TV station or change a TV station from its regular programme position to one of your preference, you can set it up manually.
This is called Manual Tuning.
If download is performed after you have used manual tuning to change the settings then the changes that you made may be
lost. In this case make the changes again using manual tuning. However for Direct TV Record to work correctly (Q Link) then
the programme settings of the TV and VCR must be the same. To ensure this, make the desired programme setting changes to
the TV first and then perform download to the VCR. Refer to the TV operating instructions for further details.
Manual Tuning can be used for the following:
@ To change the order in which the TV stations are assigned to the programme positions
@ To enter or change the name of a TV station
@ To enter newly available TV stations
To select the type of sound to be heard/recorded

PDC (Programme Delivery Control)
What is PDC?
PDC is a special signal transmitted by certain TV stations
together with the normal TV signal. This signal ensures that a
TV programme which has been programmed for timer
recording will be recorded precisely from beginning to end,
even if it is delayed or extended compared to the published
broadcasting time. Furthermore, if a programme is interrupted
by a news flash, etc., the timer recording is also interrupted,
and resumes when the programme restarts.
How to Use PDC?
(1) This VCR detects whether or not a TV station transmits
PDC signal at the time of tuning only, and it stores this
information in its memory.
If a TV station introduces or discontinues PDC
transmissions later on, tuning must be performed again to
update the VCR's memory.
(2) When you use VIDEO Plus+ PlusCode for timer
programming, the PDC mode is automatically set to “OFF”
even if the station has been memorized by the VCR as
having PDC transmission.
(3) When you use VIDEO Plus+ PlusCode for timer
programming for a TV station that has been memorized by
the VCR as not having PDC transmission, the PDC mode
is automatically set to “---" (no PDC).
(4) To perform PDC recording for a TV station that transmits
PDC signals, set the PDC mode to “ON” and ensure that
the start time is set exactly to the time published, for
example, in newspapers, magazines, etc. If that is set
correctly, the timer recording does not start.
Notes on PDC Recording:
(1) PDC recording will start several seconds before the
broadcast programme commences and may stop several
seconds before or after the end of the programme,
depending on the control from the TV station.
(2) Normally, the programming date for a timer recording is
automatically cancelled as soon as the recording is
completed.
Under the following conditions, however, the programmed
timer recording data will automatically be cancelled
at 4 a. m. of the next day.
(a) When the VCR performs normal timer recording
(without PDG control) because the PDC signal cannot
be detected during PDC timer recording.
(b} When a timer recording is incomplete due to
insufficient tape or cancellation by the user.
(с) If the TV station transmits a PDC signal to suspend or
interrupt the recording.
In these cases, the VCR remains in the timer recording
standby mode after the timer recording has been stopped.
(3) It “PDC” is manually set to “ON” for a TV station which
does not transmit a PDC signal, the VCR performs normal
timer recording (without PDC control}.
(4) If several timer recordings have been programmed, the
VCR periodically checks, when it is in the timer recording
standby mode, the PDC status of programmed TV stations
with PDC for any change in the start time of these
programmes. However, while the VCR is actually recording
a programme, it can only check the PDC status of the
programme being recorded.
(5) If the actual broadcasting times of timer recordings
overlap (regardless of whether or not they are PDC-
controlled), the recording that starts first always has
priority, and the recording of the later programme starts
only after the first timer recording has finished.
(6) Some TV stations may send signals to your VCR which
will change the time or date etc. for a timer recording that
you have programmed with PDC. The signal automatically
updates the timer programme to record at the re-
scheduled time and date. When this happens, the PDC
status indicator changes to “ON>”. Although it is not
possible to alter the timer programme once this has
happened, it is still possible to delete the programme
completely, if you wish to.
(7) If the name of a TV station has been changed by manual
channel setting (Manual Tuning), the programmed
recording may not be performed correctly even if you have
set the PDC mode to “ON” during programming.
At present, PDC transmission does not cover all areas and
TV stations in the UK, so please check with the broadcasters
in your area for details.
One Touch Recording (OTR)
You can use this function to set the duration of a recording.
When the selected recording duration has elapsed, the VCR
automatically stops recording and switches off.
This function is convenient when you have to go out or want
to go to bed before the recording ends.
75
Q Link Function
This function works only if the VCR is connected via a fully-
wired 21-pin Scart cable to a TV featuring the Q Link or
similar function.
Q Link offers the following functions:
(1) Download from the TV
When you connect the VCR to a TV, the station list data
is automatically copied from the TV to the VCR, and the
TV stations are assigned to the programme positions on
the VCR in the same order as on the TV.
(2) Direct TV Recording
By simply pressing the DIRECT TV REC button, you can
at once record the same programme that you are
watching on the TV.
*(3) TV/VCR Auto Switch On
Even if the TV and the VCR are off (standby mode),
pressing the Play (>), VIDEO PLUS+ or PROG./CHECK
button automatically turns on both the TV and the VCR.
¢ When a cassette with a broken erasure prevention tab
is in the VCR, it turns on and starts playback. The TV
also turns on.
*(4) VCR Auto Switch Off
When you turn the TV off, the VCR is turned off as well.
However, this function only works during rewinding, in
the stop mode, or when no cassette is inserted.
If the VCR receives the Auto Switch Off command while
it is rewinding the tape, it turns off after the rewinding
has been finished.
This function does not work during the following
operations:
Preset Download, Auto Setup, Auto Clock Setting and
Manual Tuning.
*(5) On Screen Display Messages
When you are watching a TV programme, the following
VCR messages appear on the TV screen to inform you

Hi-Fi audio tracks.
® If, for some reason, you want to record a NICAM TV
programme intentionally in mono on the Hi-Fi audio tracks,
set “Nicam” to “OFF” for the programme position on which
the desired programme is broadcast, as described on
page 62.
important Note on the NICAM System

TVs, the picture may scroll up and down in the special
playback functions.
However, these are not malfunctions.
Please read these cautions before you operate this VCR,
Avoid Sudden Changes in Temperature
If the VCR is suddenly moved from a cold place to a warm
place, condensation may form on the tape and inside the
VCR. If this happened, leave the VCR to at room temperature.
Humidity and Dust
Avoid places where there is high humidity or much dust,
which may cause damage to internal parts.
Do Not Obstruct the Ventiiation Holes
The ventilation holes prevent abnormal increase in
temperature. Do not block or cover these holes. Especially
avoid covering the holes with soft materials such as cloth or
paper.
Video Head Clogging
The video heads record picture signals on the tape during
recording and read picture signals from the tape during
playback and they are, therefore, of critical importance for the
picture quality. If the VCR is used over long periods of time,
these heads may become dirty and clogged. In such a case,
the signals can no longer be recorded correctly, and the
playback picture will be distorted accordingly. This is the
case, for example, during the playback of a tape, the sound is
reproduced normally, but no picture is seen, or the picture is
greatly distorted. When such a symptoms occurs have the
recorder checked by gualified service personnel.
Head cleaning by a service agent is not coverd by
warranty.
Keep away from High Temperature
Keep the VCR away from extreme direct heat such as direct
sunlight, heating radiators, or closed automobiles.
Avold Magnets or Magnetized objects
Never bring a magnet or magnetized object near the VCR
because it will adversely affect the performance of the VCR.
Keep the VCR away from other equipment as much as
possible when using it, to avoid any adverse effect on
performance for both the VCR and the equipment.
No Fingers or Other Objects inside
Touching internal parts of this VCR is dangerous, and may
cause serious damage to the VCR. Do not attempt to
disassembie the VCR. There are no user serviceable parts
inside.
Keep Water away
Keep the VCR away from flower vases, tubs, sinks, etc.
CAUTION: If liquids are spilled into the VCR, serious damage
could occur. If you spill any liquid into the VCR, consult
qualified service personnal.
Cleaning the VCR
Wipe the VCR with a clean, dry cloth. Never use cleaning
fluid, or other chemicals. And do not use compressed air to
remove dust,
Stacking
Place the VCR in a horizontal position, and do not place
anything heavy on it.
Condensation may form in the VCR if:
© The VCR is in a room where the heater has just been
turned on.
e The VCR is in a room with steam or high humidity.
9 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 condensation sensor.
Tape Care
Some do's and dont's on tape care.
DO:
1) Use a good quality branded tape, such as Panasonic.
2) Keep in the box supplied with your tape, or a video case,
when not in use.
3) Try to use all the tape on a cassette by making middle and
end sections. This will avoid many repeated recordings at
the beginning of the tape resulting in premature wear.
4) Take care to insert a tape correctly into the VCR to avoid
damage.
DO NOT:
1) Expose the tape to high humidity or temperature.
2) Expose to liquid.
3) Expose to dust particies by storing directly on a carpet for
example.
4) Use a damaged tape or attempt to repair.
5) Dismantle the cassette housing.
6) Attempt to lift the front cassette flap or touch the tape
surface.
