PRECAUTIONS

CAUTION

RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK

DO NOT OPEN

CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK,

DO NOT REMOVE COVER (OR BACK).

NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE.

REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL.

The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsulated “dangerous voltage” within the product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.

The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the product.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this appliance to rain or moisture.

CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, match wide blade of plug to wide slot of electrical outlet and insert fully.

CAUTION: Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer may void the user’s authority to operate this VCR.

Location

For safe operation and satisfactory performance of your VCR, keep the following in mind when selecting a place for its installation:

œShield it from direct sunlight and keep it away from sources of intense heat.

œAvoid dusty or humid places.

œAvoid places with insufficient ventilation for proper heat dissipation. Do not block the ventilation holes of the VCR. Do not place the unit on a carpet because this will block the ventilation holes.

œInstall the VCR in a horizontal position only.

œAvoid locations subject to strong vibrations.

œAvoid moving the VCR between cold and hot locations (see “Moisture Condensation Problems”, this page).

œDo not place the VCR directly on top of the TV, as this may cause playback or recording problems.

Avoiding Electric Shock or Fire

œDo not handle the power cord with wet hands.

œDo not pull on the power cord when disconnecting it from an AC wall outlet. Grasp it by the plug.

œIf any liquid is spilled on the VCR, unplug the power cord immediately and have the unit inspected at a factory-authorized service center.

œDo not place anything directly on top of the VCR.

WARNING: Unauthorized recording or use of television broadcast, video tape, film or other copyrighted material may violate applicable copyright laws. The manufacturer assumes no responsibility for unauthorized duplication, use or other acts that infringe upon the rights of copyright owners.

When the VCR is first installed, moved from a cold area to a warm area or placed in a location with high humidity, dew (moisture) may form inside the unit. If you operate the VCR with dew inside, damage may result.

Prevention:

1 Make all necessary connections.

2 Plug the power cord into a 120 V AC wall outlet.

3 Turn on the power.

4Do not operate the VCR or insert a cassette for approximately 2 hours.

This allows the VCR to warm up to the temperature of the room where it will be used.

ALTERNATIVE CABLE TV CONNECTIONS

Your VCR can receive all unscrambled cable channels without the use of an external converter. If you wish to view and record scrambled cable channels, you must connect a converter/decoder as described below.

Your local cable TV company will advise you of the channels available in your area.

We recommend that you consult your cable TV company to make sure that the cable is properly connected.

When the TV does not have a built-in cable converter

Connect the cable TV converter between the VCR and the TV so that you can watch a cable TV program while recording another program.

NOTE: Set the TV channel to the cable converter output channel (CH02 ~ 07).

When you are setting up the VCR for the first time, or after the power has failed for more than 5 seconds, follow the steps below. This AUTO SETUP operation automatically sets the RF output channel, enters all available channels in your area into the VCR tuner memory and sets the VCR internal clock.

Many TV stations transmit a signal called Extended Data Services (XDS). This VCR uses the XDS signal to automatically set the clock. If no XDS signal is available in your area, the VCR prompts you to set the clock manually.

AUTO SETUP

œDuring AUTO SETUP, do not press any buttons other than the ones indicated here.

Before starting

œ Be sure the antenna or cable connections are correct. (See pages 9 and 10.)

@@@@@@@@@@Ch03

This is your VCR channel. The TV must be set to this channel whenever the VCR is used for playing a tape or watching a TV program.

To change the RF output channel setting, press the number button 3 (or 4).

5Press the ù (or û) button to move down or up the list and highlight the language of your choice. Press the OK button.

The menu language is selected.

“Auto tuning memory” appears on screen. The VCR scans all 125 channels and memorizes each active channel in your area in succession. It takes about 4-6 minutes.

6When Auto Tuning is completed, the VCR will select the channel that carries the XDS signal and proceed to Auto Clock setting.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@01

@@@@@@@Clock@set

The Auto Clock setting normally takes about

3 minutes. During this time, the VCR’s front panel shows the channel number that is sending the XDS signal for Auto Clock setting. Make a note of this number, which you may need to refer to for readjusting the clock later (see page 18).

If the Auto Clock setting entered the incorrect date and/or time, correct it by following the steps under Automatic Clock Adjustment on page 18.

If no XDS signal is available in your area:

“Clock set” will not appear on the screen when the Auto Tuning operation is completed. Instead, the TV program on the lowest channel that the VCR memorized will appear on screen. In this case, you must set the clock manually. Follow the steps under Manual Clock Setting on page 19.

NOTES:

œThe VCR will search for and memorize channels in the CATV (cable TV) mode and TV mode.

œIf the AC power to the VCR is interrupted for more than 5 seconds, the memorized RF output channel, channel and clock may be erased.

RECORDING

Smart Speed Record Function

When the Smart Speed Record function is set, the VCR automatically calculates the remaining time left on the tape during recording. If there is not enough time left for the program to be recorded, the VCR switches the recording speed from SP (standard play) to SLP (super long play) to enable the entire program to fit onto the remaining tape.

œTo set the Smart Speed Record function, press the SP/SLP button until “SS” is displayed on-screen at the Recording tape speed display position (or both SP and SLP indicators light on the indicator panel).

Recording will start in SP mode. During recording, based on a calculation using the remaining tape and the XDS signal information, if the remaining tape duration is not enough to record the program to the end, the recording speed will be automatically switched to SLP mode. If the necessary information is not contained in the received XDS signal, the recording will be done in SP mode.

For example, when recording a 150-minute program onto a T-120 (120-minute) tape:

The recording will be done in SP mode for almost 105 minutes and in SLP mode for the last 45 minutes.

During Smart Speed Recording, the current recording speed indicator will flash on the display.

During Smart Speed Recording, SS will appear on the screen.

NOTES:

œDuring timer recording, the set end time will be considered as the time the program ends.

œIf during Quick Timer Recording (QTR), the end time is set using the REC and/or CH/TRACK l (or j) buttons, the duration until the set end time will be considered as one single program.

œThis feature will not work properly on T-140 tapes or tapes longer than T-160. (The feature will work on T-160 tapes.)

œIf two or more timer recordings are programmed, all the programs may not fit onto a single tape. In that case, make sure the Smart Speed Record mode is not set, and select the recording speed manually.

œThere may be some interference in the image at the point where the speed has been switched.

œIf a program to be taped cannot fit into the remaining time left on the tape, even in SLP mode, the program will not be recorded till the end.

PROGRAM TIMER RECORDING

The Program Timer switches your VCR on and off to record a TV program at a preset time. On any occasion, you can preset a maximum of 8 programs to be recorded during the next 1-year period.

You can also set any of the 8 time slots to repeatedly record the same channel at the same time daily (Monday through Friday) or weekly. Daily and weekly settings are retained in the timer memory and will continue to cue the VCR to record as long as tape is available.

During timer programming, you may want to take advantage of convenient features that give you the option of saving the title/type of program being recorded (Rec. List Super, page 25), having the VCR automatically set the proper tape speed (Smart Speed Record Function, page 24), and having the VCR automatically adjust the start and stop times (Smart Time Record Function, page 30).

NOTE: The clock time must be set before a timer recording can be programmed.

The Timer icon (n)appears.

Smart Time Record Function

Sometimes, TV program start or end times are later than published schedules. With the Smart Time Record function, the VCR is informed of the altered times and adjusts Program Timer recording to the actual broadcast time.

This function operates by recognizing program rating signals incorporated into broadcasts. When you have programmed the timer up to step 6, you can call up the Type and Smart Time Rec. setting menu by pressing the TYPE button on the remote control and then follow steps 7 through G on page 30.

Not all TV stations transmit rating information signals.

NOTES:

œIf more than one programmed recording set with the Smart Time Record function is delayed, the VCR will wait (up to 3 hours) for the first one to be broadcast and that program will have priority over the other programmed recordings.

œIf the option Auto A/V select is set to “On” and the input at the front A/V input connectors is being viewed, when a program is delayed, the message “Smart Time Rec.” will flash from the scheduled start time (setup on the VCR) to the actual start time of the program broadcast (up to a maximum of 3 hours).

œIf the start time of a programmed recording not using the Smart Time Record function is reached during the start time wait period for a delayed recording programmed with the Smart Time Record function, the recording programmed without the Smart Time Record function will have priority and will first be recorded to the end.

œIf the Smart Time Record function is set after having set the Smart Speed Record function, the tape speed will change to SLP and the Smart Speed Record function will not operate. Note that even if the Smart Time Record function is set to “Off”, the tape speed will remain as set and will not return automatically to its previous setting.

œIf the program transmission start time is delayed more than 3 hours the function will be canceled.

œIf the previous and following programs are not rated, and the desired program broadcast time is changed, the unit may record some of the previous or following program.
