Cautions
Be sure to read the cautions carefully before you operate this
VCR.
Avoid sudden changes in temperature
If the VCR is moved suddenly from a cold to a warm place,
condensation may form on the tape surface and inside the
VCR. If this happens, leave the VCR at room temperature for
at least 1 hour before operating it.
Avoid humidity and dust
Do not use the VCR in very humid or dusty places. This may
cause damage to its internal parts.
Video head clogging
The video heads record the picture signals on the tape during
recording and read picture signals from the tape during
playback. They are, therefore, of critical importance for the
picture quality. If the VCR is used for a very long time, these
heads may become dirty and clogged with dust and fine
particles from the tape coating. 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, if
during the playback of a tape, which you know to have
excellent recording quality, the picture and sound quality are
inferior. When such a symptom occurs, have the recorder
checked by qualified service personnel.
Do not cover the ventilation holes
The ventilation holes prevents excessive heat build-up inside
the VCR during extended periods of use. Do not block these
holes; especially avoid covering them with soft materials such
as paper or cloth.
Keep the VCR away from high temperatures
Keep the VCR away from extreme heat such as direct
sunlight, heating radiators, or closed automobiles.
Keep away from magnets and electromagnetic objects
Never bring a magnet or electromagnetic object close to the
VCR because this could adversely affect the performance of
the VCR. When using the VCR together with other
equipment, keep as much distance as possible between them
to prevent them from adversely affecting each other’s
performance.
No fingers or other objects inside
Touching internal parts of the VCR is dangerous, and may
seriously damage it. 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 water or some other liquid is spilled into the VCR,
serious damage could occur. If you spill any liquid into the
VCR, consult qualified service personnel.
Lightning
To avoid damage by lightning, disconnect the aerial plug from
the VCR during lightning storms.
Cleaning the VCR
Wipe the VCR with a clean, dry cloth. Never use any cleaning
fluid or other chemicals. Also do not use compressed air to
remove dust.
Stacking
Install the VCR in a horizontal position and do not place
anything heavy on it.
6
Head cleaning by a service centre is not covered by
warranty.
Condensation may form in the following cases:
≥ If the VCR is in a room that was very cold before the heater
has just been turned on.
≥ If the VCR is in a room with steam or high humidity.
≥ If the VCR is brought from cold surroundings into a wellheated 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:
≥ In any of the above-mentioned conditions, do not operate
the VCR for at least 1 hour.
This VCR is not equipped with a dew sensor.
As this equipment gets hot during use, operate it
in a well ventilated place; do not install this
equipment in a confined space such as a book
case or similar unit.

≥ If you record in the S-VHS ET format, the picture quality
may not be very good with certain types of cassettes.
To avoid negative surprises, we recommend that you make
a trial recording and confirm that the quality of the recorded
picture is satisfactory.
To ensure optimum picture quality, we recommend the use
of high-quality type cassettes.
≥ We recommend applying the supplied S-VHS ET sticker to
the label on any cassette that you have recorded using the
S-VHS ET function so that you will be able to distinguish
such tapes from VHS tapes.

Ensuring that a TV Programme Will Be
Recorded until Its End
(Auto SP/LP Change Function)
If, at the start of a timer recording, the VCR determines that
the remaining tape time is insufficient to record the whole
programme, the Auto SP/LP Change function automatically
selects LP mode to ensure that the whole programme will be
recorded. However, if the remaining tape time is still not
sufficient even in the LP mode, the programme cannot be
recorded to its end.
≥ This function cannot change the recording speed to the
EP mode.
≥ If you programme a daily or weekly timer recording,
recording will be performed in the LP mode from the start
regardless of the remaining tape time.
≥ In case of a timer recording programmed with the VPS/PDC
function, if the TV programme continues past the
programmed ending time, the VCR automatically switches
over to the LP mode at that moment. However, in some
cases it may not be possible to record the programme until
its end.
≥ Use a video cassette on which a few minutes more than the
total length of programmed timer recordings remain,
otherwise the programmed timer recordings may be
performed in the LP mode.
≥ Be careful that the broadcast times of the TV programmes
set for timer recording do not overlap, otherwise the
programmed timer recordings may be performed in the LP
mode.
≥ If the recording speed changes from SP to LP during a
timer recording, some brief picture distortion occurs at that
point.
Condition for correct operation of the Auto SP/LP Change
function:
≥ The tape length of the inserted cassette must be set
correctly. (See page 53.)
To Activate the Auto SP/LP Change Function:
In operation step 6 when programming a timer recording with
the On Screen Display (see page 23), or in operation step 4

time about a minute earlier than that listed in the
newspaper/magazine.
≥ After the timer recording has finished, some satellite
receivers switch off automatically, but the recording has
been performed as programmed.
≥ If a power failure occurs during the timer recording of a
satellite programme, the timer recording may not resume
when the power is restored.
≥ Timer recording of pay-per-view satellite programmes is not
possible.
≥ Timer recording of satellite programmes from a satellite
receiver or satellite receiver channel for which the PIN code
has been entered is not possible.
≥ Timer recording of satellite programmes for which the
parental control function has been activated is not possible.

Notes for Cancelling the Programming of a Timer
Recording
In some cases, for example as listed below, the programming
of a timer recording remains stored in the memory until 4 a.m.
the next day. However, this is not a malfunction.
≥ When a timer recording was not performed up to the TV
programme’s ending time because the remaining tape time
was not sufficient.
≥ When you have stopped the timer recording while it was
being performed.

Tape Library System
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 LIBRARY button M.
To index each recorded programme for the Tape Library System, this VCR automatically records the Library data (cassette
number, title°1, name of TV station°2, recording time/date°3, category°4, etc.) and stores the data in the VCR’s memory°5 when
the recording is performed.
°1 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 49.)
°2 In case of a TV station with Teletext information, the name of the TV station is recorded automatically.
°3 The VCR’s clock must be set correctly.
°4 In case of a TV station with EPG information, the programme category will be recorded automatically.
°5 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:
≥ We recommend that you use new tapes for recording.
≥ Each recorded programme should have length of at least 15 minutes in the SP or LP mode.
≥ Each recorded programme should have length of at least 25 minutes in the EP mode.
≥ No Tape Library data is recorded during insert editing.
≥ 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. (See page 53.)
≥ 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 VCR 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 32.)

To Prepare the VCR for Remote-controlled
Operation of the Satellite Receiver
(Setting the Tuner Type)
This VCR lets you change the programme position on the
satellite receiver and programme timer recordings of satellite
programmes—all with this VCR’s remote control. This is
called “satellite control”.
To enable the VCR to control the satellite receiver, you need
to set the tuner type of your satellite receiver. You can find
the tuner type numbers on the enclosed list of compatible
satellite receivers. However, if your satellite receiver is not
included in this list, it cannot be remote-controlled via this
VCR.
Preparation
≥ Set the VCR/TV switch P to “VCR”.

To Prepare the Satellite Receiver
To make it possible for the VCR to control the satellite
receiver, the satellite receiver must be left in a certain
condition. This condition is called standby type, and it differs
depending on the make and model of satellite receiver. There
are five standby types (A, B, C, D, E) as listed below.
Find your satellite receiver in the enclosed list of compatible
satellite receivers and note its standby type. Then look up this
standby type in the chart below and determine which
action(s) you need to take to prepare your satellite receiver
so that this VCR can control it.

≥ Some satellite receivers offer less than 99 channels. In this
case, the number of the satellite channels that can be
controlled from the VCR is the same.
≥ Some satellite receivers offer more than 99 satellite
channels, but even in this case, only the satellite channels
1 through 99 can be controlled from the VCR.
≥ With some satellite receivers, it is necessary to wait a few
seconds between selecting one channel and selecting
another one with the remote control of the VCR.
≥ If the display on the satellite receiver does not indicate the
channels, refer to its operating instructions and follow the
procedure for displaying the channels.
Action
Action 1: Switch the satellite receiver on.

Tuning and Assigning the TV Stations Available in Your Area
to the Programme Positions (Manual Tuning)
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.

Glossary
VPS (Video Programme System)/
PDC (Programme Delivery Control)
The Video Programme System (VPS) or the Programme
Delivery Control (PDC) is a very convenient system which
assures that the TV programmes you have programmed for
timer recording will be recorded exactly from beginning to
end, even if the actual broadcasting time differs from the
scheduled time due to delayed start or extension of the
programme duration. Also, if a programme is interrupted and,
for example, some special news is inserted, the recording will
also be interrupted automatically and resumed when the
programme continues.
Depending on the signals sent from the TV stations,
the VPS/PDC system may not operate properly even when
“VPS/PDC” has been set to “ON”.
Please check with the broadcasters in your area for details.
≥ In the case of VPS/PDC recording, use the correct time
(VPS/PDC time) for recording the TV programmes.
Set “VPS/PDC” to “OFF” when the recording time is not the
correct time (VPS/PDC time).
VPS/PDC recording is not performed when the time
(VPS/PDC time) is incorrect, even if only by one minute.
To find out the correct time (VPS/PDC time), consult
Teletext, a newspaper or magazine, or other source.
≥ If the actual broadcasting times of timer recordings overlap
(regardless of whether they are VPS/PDC controlled), the
recording that starts first always has priority, and the
recording of the later beginning programme will start only
after the first timer recording has finished.
≥ When the VPS/PDC signal drops out because the
broadcast signal is weak, or when a TV station does not
transmit a regular VPS/PDC signal, the timer recording will
be performed in the normal mode (without VPS/PDC) even
if it was programmed for VPS/PDC.
In this case, even if the timer recording is performed,
whatever has been programmed will not be cancelled at
that particular time but at 4 a.m. on the following day.
≥ The start times of scheduled programmes listed in the
newspaper or magazine may be changed at a later date.
Set “VPS/PDC” to “OFF” when programming a programme
whose start time has been subsequently changed.
Particular care must be taken in this respect with
ShowView programming since “VPS/PDC” is automatically
set to “ON” in some countries.
≥ If a programme listed in a newspaper or magazine has two
ShowView numbers, use the ShowView number for
VPS/PDC if you wish to proceed with VPS/PDC recording
using ShowView programming.
≥ The default settings for “VPS/PDC” differ depending on the
country concerned. Refer to the table on the right.

NICAM Broadcasting System
This model features 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 button ?.
≥ 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 48.
Important Note on the NICAM System
When this model is switched on, the tuner automatically
switches to a NICAM broadcast if NICAM is being
transmitted. During test transmissions, it is possible that the
sound received does not correspond to the picture being
viewed. In order to receive synchronised sound and picture,
select monaural sound with the AUDIO button ? or setting
“Mono” to “ON”. This applies only until NICAM transmissions
are fully operational.
Even if the sound track is in mono, the STEREO indication
will appear.
Crystal View Control (CVC)
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 e is always
displayed to show that the Crystal View Control is activated.
This function works only if the VCR is connected via a fullywired 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 6, you
can at once record the same programme that you are
watching on the TV.
°(3) TV/VCR Auto Power On
Even if the TV and the VCR are off (standby mode),
pressing the Play I, SHOW VIEW L 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 Power 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 Power 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
of the VCR’s condition:

Message appears when:
This programme has
already started
A timer recording has just started.
Set VCR to timer

LOGIC function.
Note:
≥ If “Power save” is set to “ON”, the Q Link functions do not
work when the VCR is switched off (standby mode).
21-pin Scart Socket
The 21-pin Scart socket transmits both input and output
signals for picture and sound. TVs equipped with the same
type of socket can be connected here.

another VCR, the picture quality may be inferior and
it may be necessary to adjust the tracking. Also, on
some TVs, the picture may scroll up and down in the
special playback functions.
However, these are not malfunctions.
