PRECAUTIONS

Maintenance

Servicing

Please refer to relevant topics on “TROUBLESHOOTING” on pages 96-100 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.

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.

©2007 Funai Electric Co., Ltd.

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.

Note

For your safety and to avoid damage to the device, please unplug the RF coaxial cable from the ANTENNA IN jack before moving the unit.

If you use an antenna to receive analog TV, it should also work for DTV reception. Outdoor or attic antennas will be more effective than set-top versions.

RF output is for tuner pass through only. DVD playback through the RF is not possible.

RF MODULATOR CONNECTION

If your TV has antenna in jack only, it is still possible to connect this unit to your TV by using a stereo audio/video RF modulator. In this case, follow the instructions below.

1)Disconnect the power cords of the devices from the AC outlet.

2)Make the connection as illustrated below.

3)Set your RF modulator’s channel 3/4 switch to either 3 or 4, whichever the TV channel is least used in your area. If your RF modulator has a Modulator/Antenna switch, set it according to the manual supplied with the RF modulator.

4)Plug in the power cords of the devices to the AC outlet.

5)Turn on your TV and choose the same channel as you set the RF modulator’s channel 3/4 switch.

For more details, follow the manual supplied with the RF modulator.

You cannot record one channel while watching another channel.

Note to CATV system installer

This reminder is provided to call the cable TV system installer’s attention to Article 820-40 of the National Electrical Code, which provides guidelines for proper grounding - in particular, specifying that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as possible.

VIDEO OUTPUT

Supplied cables used in this connection are as follows:

RCA audio cable (L/R) x 1

RCA video cable x 1

Please purchase the rest of the necessary cables at your local store.

After you have completed the connections

Switch the input selector on your TV to an appropriate external input channel. Press a button on the TV’s original remote control that selects an external input channel until the DVD recorder’s opening picture appears. Check your TV owner’s manual for details.

Note

Connect this unit directly to the TV. If the RCA audio/video cables are connected to a VCR, pictures may be distorted due to the copy protection system.

You will not be able to hear the sound being output from DVD if you are not connecting DVD AUDIO OUT when you made either S-video or component video out connection.

When “Progressive” is set to “ON”, no video signal will be output from the VIDEO OUT or S-VIDEO OUT jack.

To set progressive scan mode, refer to page 91

This unit is compatible with the progressive scan system. The feature provides you the higher quality images than the traditional output system. To utilize this feature, you must set “Progressive” to “ON”.

Note

It may take up to 5 to 7 seconds to switch the digital TV channels.

In digital TV broadcasting, 2 or more channels, called minor channels, are simultaneously broadcast on one main channel, called major channel.

About digital TV broadcasting:

With its high definition broadcast, digital broadcasting far surpasses analog broadcasting in both its picture and sound quality.

What is the minor channel?

By using high compression technology, digital broadcasting offers a service that enables multiple signals to send simultaneously.

Therefore, you can select more than one program per major channel since digital broadcasting technology distinguishes between multiple channels broadcast by a signal network.
