This VOR usés tne S-VHS format thai makes it possibie to
obtain high resolution and high picture quality by using the
high-performance S-VHS video cassette tapes.
The conventional video sockets of VCRs output (input) a
combination of the luminance signal (Y) and colour signal
(C) which are recorded on the video tape. The new 5
(Separate)-Video Socket allows separate transmission of
signals in order to obtain clearer pictures.
The connection with the S-Video Cable can also be used
for playback of a tape that was recorded in the
conventional VHS system. The “S” in the “S-Video Socket
stands for “SEPARATED Y/C" not for “S-VHS”.

- --PDC (Programme Delivery Control)
How to use PDC?
(1) The VCR detects if broadcast stations transmit PDC
o signal or not at the time of "Auto-setup” only, and
= stores this information in its memory.
If broadcast stations introduce or discontinue PDC
transmission later on, “Auto-setup” must be carried out
again to update the VCR's memory.
(2) PDC mode will be automatically set to "ON" when
using “Video Plus+" codes for timer programming, if
the stations have been memorised by the VCR as
having PDC transmission.
PDC mode will be automatically set to "OFF if the
-— Start time is altered during timer programming.
-(3) PDC mode will be automatically set to *--— (no
— PDC) when using “Video Plus+" codes for timer
programming, if the stations have not been
-—---——Mmemorised by the VCR as having PDC transmission.
(4) PDC mode will be automatically set to “OFF” when
timer programming is done, for any station, by the
“On-Screen” timer recording method, because the
start time can be entered freely by the user.
——- To use PDC recording in this case, if the station
transmits PDC signal, set PDC mode to “ON” and
ensure that the start time is set to exactly the same as
the published time, e.g. in newspapers, magazines,
etc. E this 1s not done correctly, recording will not start.
Notes on PDC recording: |
(1) PDC recording will start approximately some seconds
before the broadcast programme commences and
may stop some seconds before or afier the end of the
programme, depending on the control from the
broadcaster.
(2) Normaliy programmed timer recording data is
automatically cancelled after recording is completed.
Under the following conditions the programmed timer
recording data will be automatically cancelled at
4 a.m. of the next day.
(a) If PDC signal cannot be detected during PDC
timer recording, the VCR will perform normal timer
recording (without PDC).
{b} If a timer recording is incomplete due to insufficient
tape or cancellation by the user.
(C) If timer recording is still in progress at 4 a.m.
(d) If the broadcaster transmits a PDC signal to
suspend or interrupt the recording.
If these cases, the VCR will remain in the timer
standby condition after timer recordings have been
completed.
(3) If PDC is set to "ON" manually for the station which
does not have PDC transmission, the VCR will
perform normal timer recording (without PDC).
(4) In case of multiple timer programmings, while the VCR
Is in timer standby mode the VCR will periodically
check PDC status of the programmed stations with
PDC in turn for any change in the start time of each
programme. But while the YCR is recording a
programme, it can only check the PDC status of that
programme being recorded.
(5) Ifthe actual broadcasting times of timer recordings
overlap (regardiess of whether they are PDC-
controlled), the recording that starts first always has
priority, and the recording of the later programme will
start only after the first timer recording has finished.
(6) Some broadcasting stations send signals which
change the programming information (channel, day on
which the programme is scheduled to he aired, and its
start and end times). In a case like this, the display at
the PDC item on the On Screen Display programming
screen changes 10 "ON +”. When a change has been
made in this way, what has been programmed can be
cleared but it cannot be changed.
(7) When the name of a broadcasting station has been
changed by manual tuning, the programmed recording
may not be performed correctly even when PDC is ON.

Precautions
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.
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. Especially
- avoid covering the holes with soft materials such as cloth
orpaper.
Keep away from High Temperature
Video Head Clogging
The video heads place picture sighals 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 extremely 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 symptom case occurs have the recorder
checked by qualified service personnel.
Head cleaning by service agent Is not covered
by warranty.
Keep the VCR away from extreme direct heat such as
-——direct sunlight, heating radiators, or closed automobiles.
_Keep Magnets away
Never bring a magnet or magnetized object near the VCR
Pame ta E aa 11 Ars a EH nerformancae nf han
UEUAUSGS IL Will auverseiy CARL LIE pe il DIT FERME IS QI LES
o. 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
disassemble 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 personnel.
_ 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 dust.
Slacking
Place the VCR in a horizontal position, and do not place
anything heavy on it.
Condensation may form in the VCR if:
e The VCR is in a room where the heater has just been
tumed on.
es The VCR is in a room with steam or high humidity.
e The VCR is brought from cold surroundings into a well-
heated room.
e The VCR is suddenily 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 YCR does not incorporate a dew sensor.
Tape Care
Some do's and don'ts 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 alt the tape on a cassette by making
recordings not only at the tape start but also in the
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.
