Recording”. This feature allows you to select one of up to eight of the
programmes that have been recorded while you were away from home. Playback
will automatically begin at the start of the selected programme. This will not work
If the tape has been ejected. In this case, use the “Intro-Jet Scan” or “VHS index
search system” function. (See page 49 or 50.)

Terminology
Crystal View Control
Introducing Crystal View Control, and innovative new
technology for high picture quality. This technology uses a
microprocessor to intelligently control the relationship
between the tape heads and circuitry, bringing out the
maximum performance of each.The result is consistently
optimum picture quality.
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 detecis 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 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 “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 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. 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 wiil 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 ihe 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.
Before requesting service, check the following points once
again.

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. 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 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.
|
Avoid 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
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 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 correcily,
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 qualified
service personnel.
Head cleaning by a service agent is not coverd
by warranty.
Condensation may form in the VCR ii:
e The VCR is in a room where the heater has just been
1: turned on.
e The VCR is in a room with steam or high humidity.
e 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 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.
