2.Retain InstructionsThe safety and operating instructions should be retained for future reference.

3.Heed Warnings - All warnings on the appliance and in the operating instructions should be adhered to.

4.Follow Instructions - All operating and use instructions should be followed.

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.

EXCEPTION: A product that is meant for uninterrupted service and, that for some specific reason, such as the possibility of the loss of an authorization code for a CATV converter, is not intended to be unplugged by the user for cleaning or any other purpose, may exclude the reference to unplugging the appliance in the cleaning description otherwise required in item 5.

6.Attachments - Do not use attachments not recommended by the product manufacturer as they may cause hazards.

7.Water and MoistureDo 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 appliance. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer, or sold with the product. Any mounting of the appliance should follow the manufacturer's

instructions and should use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer. An appliance and cart combination should be moved with care. Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the appliance and cart combination to overturn.

9.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,

and 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.

PRECAUTIONS

Maintenance

Servicing

Please refer to relevant topics on “TROUBLESHOOTING” on pages 80-84 before returning the product.

If this unit becomes inoperative, do not try to correct the problem by yourself. There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Turn off, unplug the power plug and please call our help line mentioned on the front page to locate an Authorized Service Center.

Cleaning the cabinet

Use a soft cloth slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not use a solution containing alcohol, spirits, ammonia or abrasive.

Cleaning discs

When a disc becomes dirty, clean it with a cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the center to out. Do not wipe in a circular motion.

Do not use solvents such as benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners, detergent, abrasive cleaning agents or antistatic spray intended for analog records.

Cleaning the disc lens

If this unit still does not perform properly although you refer to the relevant sections and to

“TROUBLESHOOTING” in this owner's manual, the laser optical pickup unit may be dirty. Consult your dealer or an Authorized Service Center for inspection and cleaning of the laser optical pickup unit.

Disc handling

Handle the discs so that fingerprints and dust do not adhere to the surfaces of the discs.

Always store the disc in its protective case when it is not used.

Auto head cleaning

Automatically cleans video heads as you insert or remove a cassette, so you can see a clear picture.

Playback picture may become blurred or interrupted while the TV program reception is clear. Dirt accumulated on the video heads after a long period of use, or the usage of rental or worn tapes can cause this problem. If a streaky or snowy picture appears during playback, the video heads in your unit may need to be cleaned.

©2007 Funai Electric Co., Ltd.

1.Please visit your local Audio/Video store and purchase a good quality VHS video head cleaner.

2.If a video head cleaner does not solve the problem, please consult your dealer or an Authorized Service Center.

Note

Remember to read the instructions along with the video head cleaner before use.

Clean video heads only when problems occur.

IR signal check

If the remote control does not work properly, you can test if the remote control sends out the infrared signal with AM radio or a digital camera (including built-in camera

of cellular phone). It will help to define the cause of malfunction.

With an AM radio:

Tune an AM radio to a station with no broadcasting. Press a button on remote control toward the radio. Sound will be fluttering when you press any key and the radio receives the signal. This means the remote control is working.

With a digital camera (including built-in camera of cellular phone):

Direct a digital camera to remote control, press and hold a button on remote control. If infrared light appears through digital camera, the remote control is working.

Dolby Digital Recording

“Dolby® Digital Recording enables consumers to record high-quality video with stereo sound on recordable DVD discs. The technology, when utilized instead of PCM recording, also saves recordable disc space, allowing for higher video resolution or extended recording time on each DVD. DVDs created using Dolby Digital Recording will play back on all DVD-video players.” Note: This is true when the players are compatible with actual recordable DVD discs.

Performance of any other discs are not guaranteed.

You can play back DVD+RW on most DVD players without finalizing. However, if you have added or deleted chapters, or made chapters hidden, you must perform “Make Edits Compatible” before being able to see those effects on other units. (Refer to page 67 for more details.) To play back discs other than DVD+RW on other DVD players, you will need to finalize.

Unrecordable Discs

DVD-RW recorded in the mode other than +VR is not recordable on this unit unless you erase all contents in the disc (refer to page 66).

DVD-R recorded in the mode other than +VR is not recordable on this unit.

The recording time is only an estimate. The actual recording time may differ.

The audio and video quality gets poorer as the recording time becomes longer.

Each time [REC MODE] is pressed, recording mode and its allowed recording time will be displayed.

Note

This unit cannot record to CD-RW or CD-R.

DVD+RW/+R, DVD-RW/-R and CD-RW/-R recorded on a personal computer or a DVD or CD recorder may not be played back if the disc is damaged or dirty or if there is condensation on the player’s lens.

If you record a disc using a personal computer, even if it is recorded in a compatible format it may not be played back because of the settings of the application software used to create the disc. (Check with the software publisher for more detailed information.)

Since the recording is made by the VBR (variable bit rate) method, depending on the picture you are recording, the actual remaining time for recording may be a little shorter than the remaining time displayed on the TV screen.

You cannot record copy-protected program using this unit. (Copy-protected signal is included in DVDvideo or some satellite broadcasts.)

You cannot record “copy-once only” program on DVD.

Your program setting is now stored.

• To set another program, repeat steps 2 to 7.

• To exit, press [TIMER] or [SETUP].

• When 2 or more programs are overlapped, “Timer program overlapped” appears, and the overlapped program will be displayed in blue.

• To correct the timer program refer to “Checking, canceling, or correcting the timer programming information” on page 27.

TIMER REC indicator will light up on the front panel.

Note

If you have not set the clock yet:

“Clock Setting” menu will appear instead of the timer programming list at step 1. Continue with the step 4 in “Clock Setting” on page 20 before setting a timer programming.

Use [s / B] to move the cursor to the left and the right in “Timer Programming” menu.

If a basic recording or one-touch timer recording is in progress on one component (e.g., VCR) and the timer recording set for the other component (e.g., DVD) is about to begin, the unit automatically switches to the programmed channel for timer recording 2 minutes before the programmed starting time, and the recording in progress (for VCR) will be canceled UNLESS their recording channels are the same. If their recording channels are the same, the timer recording will start without canceling the recording currently in progress. In this case, the recording of the same channel will be made on both DVD and VCR.

Cancel the timer-standby mode by pressing

[TIMER SET] before operation for either DVD or VCR. When finished operating, press [TIMER SET] to resume the timer-standby mode.

In the timer-standby mode, you can turn on the power and use the component (VCR or DVD) which is not currently timer-programmed.
