IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
5.
Cleaning-Unplug this product from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol
cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
6.
Attachments-Do not use attachments not recommended by the product manufacturer as they may cause
hazards.
7.
Water and Moisture-Do not use this product near water-for example near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen
sink, or laundry tub; in a wet basement; or near a swimming pool; and the like.
8.
Accessories-Do not place this product on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or
table. The product may fall, causing serious injury to a child or adult, and serious damage to the product. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended
by the manufacturer or sold with the product. Any mounting of the product should follow the manufacturer's instructions and should use a mounting accessory recommended
by the manufacturer.
9.
Cart Usage-A product and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force,
and uneven surfaces may cause the product and cart combination to overturn.
10. Ventilation-Slots and openings in the cabinet are provided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation
of the product and to protect it from overheating. These openings must not be blocked or covered. The
openings should never be blocked by placing the product on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface.
This product should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer's instructions have been adhered to.
11. Power Sources-This product should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the
marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your product dealer
or local power company.
12. Grounding or Polarization-This product may be equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug (a
plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is
a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug
should still fail to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
13. Power-Cord Protection-Power-supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked on or
pinched by items placed upon or against them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from the product.
14. Outdoor Antenna Grounding-If an outside antenna or cable
NEC-NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE
system is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or cable
Antenna Lead-in Wire
system is grounded so as to provide some protection against
voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the
Ground Clamp

ments for the grounding electrode.
15. Lightning-For added protection for this product during a lightning storm or when it is left unattended and
unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and power-line surges.
16. Power Lines-An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or
other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing
an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
17. Overloading-Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this can
result in a risk of fire or electric shock.

Worldwide VCR Background
GB
“Worldwide Communication through VCR”
Today, the Video Recorder is a major media and communication tool, used for both business and home
entertainment. Furthermore, the emergence of the camcorder has extended the versatility of video
enabling home video making.
Video communication is increasingly becoming a global medium, but different TV broadcasting systems
around the world hinder the worldwide exchange of video tapes.
The Samsung SV-5000W overcomes the incompatibility of different TV broadcasting systems through
sophisticated digital technology, allowing any standard VHS tape to be played on any TV, anywhere in
the world (with free voltage).
Worldwide TV Color System
Many countries have different TV signal formats, with no exchangeability between them. This makes it
impossible to play back or record tapes with different signal formats. This worldwide common VCR
overcomes this problem by converting the signal format of any tape into the format you desire.

Multi-System VCR vs Worldwide VCR

TV Broadcasting System. However, there are a few key differences:

With a Multi-System VCR:
The TV must correspond to the system of the tape being

not possible.

Tape Conversion with the Worldwide VCR
GB
One of the most useful functions of the Worldwide VCR is the combination of tape duplication and
system conversion, more simply known as “Tape Conversion”. This allows the user to copy, for
example, a SECAM tape and simultaneously convert it to PAL or NTSC. This is particularly useful for
duplicating home video camcorder recordings and sending them to friends or relatives abroad.

Hi-Fi Audio System
GB
Hi-Fi and linear audio
To provide true Hi-Fi audio sound with video entertainment and, at the same time, compatibility with regular
VHS tapes, your VCR employs a newly-developed audio recording system.
Hi-Fi audio signals (2-channel) are recorded deep into the tape's magnetic coating and the video signal is
recorded on top of the audio signals in a shallower layer. At the same time, another audio head records linear
audio signals (monaural) onto the normal audio track. With the Audio Dubbing function, it is possible to erase
the old monaural soundtrack and record a new one.
Tape pattern recorded with your VCR
Normal audio track
Video track (surface layer of
the magnetic coating)
Stereo Hi-Fi audio track (deep

Control track
Hi-Fi audio recording and reproduction are
available only from the Hi-Fi audio track,
while the normal audio track provides
normal audio.
The Hi-Fi and normal soundtracks are
recorded simultaneously and audio dubbing
is applicable only to the normal audio track.
