(Tuning)
The VCR is fitted with its own tuner (just like a normal TV set) and can be pre-set to receive up to 99 TV broadcast
stations.
When the VCR is turned on for the first time after connecting the aerial and the mains lead, the Auto setup feature will
tune in your channels automatically. However, under certain circumstances in some transmission areas certain channels
may not be assigned a channel name or their normal channel position. If Auto setup is not successful, please follow the
steps below.

¿How to Play back the NTSC Video Cassette on PAL TV
Tapes recorded in the NTSC system can be played back with this VCR via a PAL
system TV set.
e The playback picture may roll up or down. If the TV set is equipped with a V-
HOLD control, it may be possible to stop the picture movement by adjusting this
control.
e Depending on the TV set used, the picture may be in black and white. However,
this is not an indication of a malfunction.
(How to Minimize any Noise Bar (Adjusting the
Tracking)
How to Minimize any Noise Bar during Playback
The V (-) and A (+) buttons are used to adjust the tracking when, for example,
noise bars on the picture during normal playback are better removed manually
than by automatic digital tracking control. Press both buttons down at the same
time to return to automatic digital tracking control.
(How to Minimize any Vertical Jitter during Still Picture
Playback (Vertical Locking Adjustment)
Use the V (-) and A (+) buttons to minimize any vertical jitter during still
picture playback.
Remaks, etc.
e Cue or review will be automatically released after 10 minutes, and still
playback after 5 minutes.
e When the tape reaches its end during playback or fast foward, it will
automatically be rewound to the beginning.
ein LP mode only:
1. During any playback mode other than normal playback, the picture may
have some noise bars, the colour may be unstable, or a black and white
picture may appear.
2. When playing back a tape which was recorded on another VCR, it may
be necessary to adjust the Tracking Control. In some cases the picture
quality may still be inferior. This is due to limitation of format.
3. Depending on the TV set used, the playback picture may roll up or down
during special playback (Cue, Review or Still playback mode). However,
this is not an indication of a malfunction.

How to Confirm the Timer-Recorded
Programmes (Timer Record Confirmation)
When timer programmes are recorded by this VCR, the VCR stores the
programming details, and the programmes are selected and searched by the
Timer record confirmation function.
This function cannot be used for recordings made with normal recording and
one-touch recording(OTR).
Since this function works only for the currently loaded video cassette, all the
programming list details will be cleared when the video cassette is ejected or
replaced with another one. At times like this, use the Intro-jet scan function or the
VHS index search system. (See page 35 or 36.)
Preparations
e Confirm that the TV is on and the VCR viewing channel is selected.
e Release the standby status for timer programme recording.

HPDC (Programme Delivery Control)
What is PDC?
PDC is a signal system transmitted by TV broadcasters to
control the start and stop time of each programme. This
signal is used by the VCR to control the start and stop
time of programmed timer recordings.
PDC is particularly useful when the broadcaster changes
the time for a programme from the published time, the
VCR's timer recording start and stop time will be
controlled by the broadcaster, e.g. when the programme is
delayed or extended. Recording can also be interrupted
by the broadcaster, e.g. news flash, and resumed when
the programme restarts.
At present PDC transmission does not cover all areas and
stations in the UK, please check with the broadcasters in
your area for details.
How to use PDC?
(1) The VCR detects if broadcast stations transmit PDC
signal or not at the time of “Auto-setup” only, and
stores this information in its memory.
If broadcast stations introduse 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 “OFF” when
using “Video Plus+" codes for timer programming,
even if the stations have been memorised by the VCR
as having PDC transmission.
(3) PDC mode will be automatically set to “---” (no PDC)
when using “Video Plus+” codes for timer
programming, if the stations have not been memorised
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 strat
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. If this is 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 after the end of the
programme, depending on the control from the
broadcaster.
(2) Normally 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 VCR is recording a
programme, it can only check the PDC status of that
programme being recorded.
(5) If the actual broadcasting times of timer recordings
overlap (regardless 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 be 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 to “ONX”. 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.

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 increase in
temperature. Do not block or cover these holes. Especially
avoid covering the holes with soft materials such as cloth
or paper.
Keep away from High Temperature
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
because it will adversely affect the performance of the
VCR. Keep the VCR away from other equipments 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
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. 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.
Video Head Clogging
The video heads place 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 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 coverd by
warranty.
Condensation may form in the VCR if:
e 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.
® The VCR is brought from cold surroundings into a well-
heated room.
e 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 dew 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 particles 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.
