C.Cautions and Warnings

1.Cleaning Video Head

Use only good quality VHS tapes and discard worn out tapes to prevent video head clogging. If the heads get dirty over a period of time during normal operation of the VCP, the picture will be snowy and the auto-trackingwill not adjust the snow out of the picture. We recommend using cleaning cartridges sparingly to restore normal picture.

Do not operate or store the unit close to strong magnetic fields. Do not place the set on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket or table to prevent it from falling.

3.Ventilation

Never cover or block the slots and openings in the cabinet with a cloth or other material to ensure proper ventilation.

Do not move the player with a cassette in the compartment. Store videocassettes in the sleeves or cases and position them vertically.

D.Important Safeguards

At room temperature, if you pour a cold liquid into a glass, water vapor in the air will condense on the surface of the glass, This is moisture condensation. The moisture condensation may occur inside of VCPs; if used in this condition, it will cause damage to the head and the tape.

When moving the VCP from a cold place to heated place.

Or the temperature of surroundings goes up due to vehicle heating switched on. Or moving the VCP suddenly from air conditioned room to a place of high temperature or humidity in summer may cause the dew indicator to appear on video monitor display.

When the moisture condensation occurs inside of the VCP, NEVER insert the cassette into the cassette compartment. Remove the cassette, if loaded, by pressing the STOP/EJECT key. Only operate the VCP after the moisture condensation has completely dried out. Normally, it takes about 2 hours.
