Slots and openings in the cabinet and the sides or bottom are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation and to protect the unit from overheating, these openings must not be blocked or covered.

Avoid installation in enclosed spaces such as bookcases unless proper ventilation is provided.

Keep the unit away from radiators and other heat sources.

Avoid use near strong magnetic fields.

Do not push objects of any kind into the VCR through the cabinet slots or openings as they could touch electrically live parts or short circuit parts resulting in a fire or electric shock.

Never spill liquid on this unit. If liquid is spilled and penetrates into the unit, consult qualified service personnel.

Use this unit in a horizontal (flat) position only.

Before attempting to operate the unit, make sure that the Timer Recording mode is “OFF”.

This product is in Stand-by mode when it turns off while the power cord is connected.

Disconnect the mains plug to shut off when find troubles or not in use.

The mains plug shall remain readily operable.

Power Supply

The main power supply is engaged when the power cord plug is plugged in a 220-240V, 50Hz, AC outlet. To operate the unit, press FUNCTION to turn on the unit. (FUNCTION indicator on the VCR comes on.)

Dew Warning

Moisture condensation may occur inside the unit when it is moved from a cold place to a warm place, after heating up a cold room, or under conditions of high humidity. Do not use the VCR for at least 2 hours until it is dry inside.

Positioning

Do not place the VCR directly on top of, or underneath, your TV set. Ensure that there is at least 20 cm between the VCR and the TV set, and that air can circulate freely through the ventilation openings of the VCR.

This appliance may be fitted with a non-rewireable plug. If it is necessary to change the fuse in a non-rewireable plug the fuse cover must be refitted. If the fuse cover is lost or damaged, the plug must not be used until a replacement available from the appliance manufacturer is obtained.

It is important that the colour of the replacement fuse cover corresponds with the rating marking on the base of the plug. If the plug has to be changed because it is not suitable for your socket, or becomes damaged, it should be cut off and an appropriate plug fitted following the wiring instructions below. The plug removed must be disposed of safely as insertion into a 13A socket is likely to cause an electrical hazard. For your own safety read the following instructions carefully before attempting to connect this unit to mains. The wires in this mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:

BLUE=NEUTRAL, BROWN=LIVE

Important

As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:-

The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black. The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red. No connection is to be made to the earth terminal of the plug. If a 13 Amp (BS 1363) Plug is used, a 3 Amp Fuse must be fitted, or if any other type of Plug is used a 3 or 5 Amp Fuse must be fitted, either in the Plug or Adaptor, or on the Distribution Board.

Mains Supply: 220 - 240 V ~ 50 Hz - AC only

Do not make any connection to the larger pin marked with the letter “E” or by the symbol or coloured green or green and yellow.

Video Cassette Tape

This VCR will operate with any cassette that bears the VHS mark. For best results, we recommend the use of high-quality tapes. Do not use poor quality or damaged tapes.

You can prevent accidental erasing of a recording by breaking off the erase-prevention tab on the back edge of the cassette. If you decide to record on the tape again, cover the hole with plastic tape.

Two Different Tape Speeds

Before recording, select the tape speed : SP mode (Standard Play) or LP mode (Long Play). The table below shows the maximum recording/playback time using E-60, E-120, E-180 or E-240 tapes in each mode.

TV Colour System

Different countries use different television colour systems. Tapes recorded in the PAL or NTSC system can be played back on this unit. Usually, the picture on the TV screen will be in black and white when you play back a tape that is recorded in a different colour system.

Tapes recorded in the NTSC system can be played back on this unit and a PAL system TV set. This feature is only available in the SP mode. When playing back such tapes, the picture may roll up or down, shrink vertically and black bars may appear both at the top and bottom of the screen. Adjust the vertical hold control on your TV, if the TV features this control.
