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 other moisture.

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

For the customers in Canada

This class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003.

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 Electrical Shock and 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 this VCR.

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.

Moisture Condensation Problems

Cause:

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 in the unit. The Dew indicator (À) blinks. If you operate the VCR with dew inside, damage may result.

Prevention:

1Make all necessary connections.

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

3Do not operate the VCR for approximately 2 hours.

When the VCR reaches room temperature, the Dew indicator (À) will turn off and the VCR will be ready to operation.

VIDEO CASSETTE TAPES

Use only video cassette tapes bearing the w logo. This VCR was primarily designed for use with T-120 or T-160 cassette tapes, it is recommended to use T-120 or T-160 standard grade VHS video cassette tapes for optimal performance.

Loading

1Place the cassette, label side up, in the loading slot. Gently push the center of the cassette until it is loaded automatically.

Handling Cassette Tapes

The cassette tapes should always be stored vertically, in their cases, away from high temperatures, magnetic fields, direct sunlight, dirt, dust and locations subject to mold formation.

Do not tamper with the cassette mechanism and never touch the tape with your fingers.

Protect the cassette tapes from shocks or strong vibrations.

To Protect your Recordings

After having recorded a tape, if you wish to keep the recording, use a flathead screwdriver to break off the erasure-prevention tab on the cassette.

To record again on a tape without erasure-prevention tab, cover the hole with adhesive tape.

Erasure-prevention tab

øThe time display will switch to the reset counter “0:00:00” display.

øAfter the cassette tape is loaded, a mechanism will operate for about 5 seconds to check that

the tape has been threaded correctly and the cassette indicator “o” will blink during that period.

øWhen the cassette is loaded, if the tape has

been threaded correctly, the cassette indicator “o” will light on the digital display.

NOTE:

œIf you try to record on a cassette without erasure-prevention tab, the VCR will eject the cassette.

Unloading

1In stop mode, press the EJECT button.

øThe cassette is automatically ejected.

Precautions concerning the video cassette tapes

œDo not use tapes that are damaged, tapes that have been cut and repaired or tapes that have been altered in any way.

œSome rewinders may entangle the tape, and therefore their use is not recommended.

œWhen tapes are recorded over and over again, the recording quality will deteriorate. Refer to “Concerning the Number of Times Tapes can be Rerecorded on” on page 14, and replace the tape with a new tape as required.

NOTES:

œDo not insert any object in the cassette loading slot, as that may cause injury and damages to the VCR.

œIf your hand gets stuck in the cassette loading slot, unplug the power cord and consult the dealer where the unit was bought. Do not forcibly pull the hand out as that may cause severe injuries.

Correct tape thread check function

If the correct tape thread check function is on, after the cassette tape is loaded, a mechanism will operate for about 5 seconds to check that the tape has been threaded (loaded) correctly and the cassette indicator “o” will blink during that period. If the tape is not loaded properly, the cassette will be ejected.

NOTES:

œThis function checks to make sure that the cassette has been correctly loaded. It is recommended to use this function to make sure the recordings are conducted reliably.

œIf during the tape thread check operation, the REC, PLAY or STOP button is pressed or if the SHUTTLE ring is turned, the command will only be executed after the tape thread has been checked. Only the EJECT button will operate while the tape thread is being checked.

œIf in the (SET UP 3) menu “TAPE IN MODE” is set to “REC”, the recording indicator “ m” will light during the while the tape thread is checked. However, recording will only start after the tape thread check is completed. To cancel recording, press the STOP button.

PROGRAM TIMER RECORDING

NOTES:

œDuring timer recording or timer recording stand-by, all the buttons on the VCR, except the TIMER button and the buttons to set/cancel the security lock (see page 30), are disabled.

œIf the power fails, the recording will be interrupted. When the power is restored, the recording will resume if the stop time has not yet been reached, and “P” will be displayed on the digital display. The VCR internal battery is completely recharged after the VCR has been connected to a live outlet for 48 hours, and it will maintain all the VCR settings memory for up to 30 days.

œSet the timer recordings so that the recording times do not overlap. If they do, the one with the earliest recording start time will have priority. (See chart below.)

The SERIES OUT signal will be presence either at the point when the counter reading is 7H57M00S or when VCR No. 1 reaches the end of the tape, whichever is first. The signal will stop 70 seconds after the tape end point of VCR No. 1.

When this signal is received by VCR No. 2, it will start recording. During the period when the SERIES OUT signal is being received by VCR No. 2, if the STOP button of VCR No. 2 is accidentally pressed, VCR No. 2 will go into the stop mode for an instant and then return to the record mode.

To prevent this form occuring, the security lock of VCR No. 2 should be set to the on condition.

If TAPE END MODE is set to “REW”, when the end of the tape is reached “OFF” is displayed, the tape is rewound then stops.

NOTES:

œIf the counter reading on VCR No.1 is 7H57M00S or more, when the REC button is pressed (step 3), the recording will start on VCR No.2.

œIf in the (SET UP 3) menu “SERIES REC IN” is set to “N” and in the (SET UP 1) menu “OUTPUT” is set to “NON REC”, series recording will not be possible.

œThe counter must start from the beginning of tape, or the series recording out will not function properly.

œEven if “OFF” is displayed, series recording will be conducted if there is an input at the SERIES IN terminal.
