INSTRUCTIONS

1. Outdoor Antenna Grounding

If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the product, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides information with regard to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding connectors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

2. Lightning

For added protection for this product during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and power-line surges.

3. Power Lines

An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.

NOTES:

To make the most of the Super VHS picture performance we recommend that you use the supplied S-VIDEO cable to connect your VCR to a TV with an S-VIDEO input connector.

To operate the VCR with your TV using the S-VIDEO connection, set your TV to the AV mode using the TV's Remote.

You can also use the TV/VCR button on the VCR’s Remote to set your TV to the AV mode ( pg. 68).

If you cannot see the pictures on the TV screen when you play back a tape, set “TV OUTPUT 1” to the appropriate mode ( pg. 56).

NOTES:

To change the settings or set the timer program on the menu screen, switch the TV’s input mode for the connection with Audio cable.

To view the picture of 480i image format on the TV, or to select and view TV broadcast, connect the component video cable to the TV’s Y/CB/CR connectors. If your TV has only the Y/PB/PR connectors, connect also the S-VIDEO or VIDEO connectors between the VCR and TV.

Plug & Play

Setting

Auto Clock Set/Auto Tuner Set

ATTENTION

If you use a cable box, Plug & Play will not function; set the clock and tuner channels separately. ( pg.10 – 14)

It takes several minutes for the VCR to complete the Plug & Play setting.

Do not press any buttons on the front panel or on the Remote while Plug & Play is in progress.

IN F-1

+

This VCR sets the clock and tuner channels automatically when AC power cord is first connected to an AC outlet. The antenna cable must be connected for the Plug & Play setting.

The time and date can be set automatically by the clock setting data transmitted from one of the regular TV broadcast channels. We call this TV channel the “host channel” and it is a PBS channel in your area.

1 Perform Plug & Play setup

Connect the antenna cable to the VCR

( pg. 7). Then connect the AC power cord to an AC outlet. Do not turn on the VCR.

The clock and tuner channels will be set automatically.

NOTES:

When the AC power cord is connected to an AC outlet, “LOAD” appears on the front display panel. It takes some time until VCR completes its set up.

Auto Clock Set is performed first.

“Auto” blinks on the front display panel during Auto Clock Set.

Auto Channel Set is performed next. Auto Channel Set scans all the channels that are receivable by your VCR. During Auto Channel Set, the channel numbers are displayed as they are scanned and set.

When Plug & Play setting has been complete successfully, the correct clock time is displayed. If you perform Plug & Play setting successfully, there is no need to perform the clock ( pg. 10) and tuner ( pg. 13) settings. If, however, you want to add or delete channels, refer to Manual Channel Set on page 14.

*If an incorrect clock time or “– –:– –” appears on the display panel, see “What to do if Plug & Play setting failed” below.

INFORMATION

If “AUTO CLOCK” is set to “ON” on the Clock Set screen on page 11, the clock will be adjusted automatically by the host channel every hour (except 11:00 PM, midnight, 1:00 AM and 2:00 AM) using the incoming PBS channel clock setting data. (This automatic clock adjustment can only be performed when the VCR is turned off. The clock will be adjusted just on these hours — on the time displayed on the front display panel, not on the actual real time.)

The default setting of “AUTO CLOCK” is “ON”.

If the memory backup fails, because a power outage occurs or because the AC power cord is unplugged, Auto Clock Set will be performed when power is restored to the VCR.

Poor antenna or cable signal may prevent the VCR from receiving the Auto clock setting data from a PBS channel. If this function is taking a considerable amount of time, it may be necessary to perform the Semiauto or Manual Clock Set procedure ( pg. 12).

What to do if Plug & Play setting failed

If an incorrect time is displayed on the front display panel, you may be receiving the clock setting data of a PBS channel from an adjacent time zone, or an incorrect PBS channel from a cable TV system. In this case, perform the Semiauto ( pg. 11) or Manual Clock Set ( pg. 12) procedure.

If “– –:– –” appears on the front display panel, your antenna cable may not be connected to the VCR or there may not be a Host PBS signal available in your area. Ensure that the antenna cable is connected correctly. Then turn on and off the VCR; the Plug & Play setting will be automatically reactivated.

If Plug & Play setting is not performed though the antenna cable is connected correctly, perform Manual Clock Set ( pg. 12) and Auto Channel Set or Manual Channel Set ( pg. 13 or 14).

BOX

The following procedure is required if you receive your TV channels through a cable box (descrambler). The Controller allows the VCR to automatically switch the cable box channel during timer recording. The Controller is effective for recording broadcasts that have been programed using VCR Plus+ ( pg. 34) or Express timer programing ( pg. 38).

Place the Controller so that its transmitter is facing the cable box’s remote sensor.

Make sure the path between the Controller and the cable box’s remote sensor is not blocked.

2 Attach Controller

Fix securely using the adhesive strip attached on the back of the Controller.

3Connect cable box to VCR

If your cable box does not have audio/video

output connectors

Connect the RF output terminal on the cable box to the ANTENNA IN terminal on the rear of your VCR.

If your cable box has audio/video output connectors

Connect an audio/video cable between the AUDIO/VIDEO IN connectors on the rear of the VCR and the audio/video output connectors on the cable box.

NOTE:

When connecting your cable box, refer to its instruction manual.

4 Connect Controller to VCR

Connect the Controller to the CABLE BOX Controller connector on the rear panel.

How to control the cable box

This VCR has two separate methods to control your cable box.

The VCR’s wireless Remote can control your cable box. This eliminates the need for a separate cable box’s Remote.

The VCR’s Controller can also control your cable box. This allows the VCR to change your cable box’s channel number during timer recording.

Each method must be set up separately. To set up the VCR’s Remote, refer to page 69. To set up the Controller, go to page 16.

NOTES:

The Controller may not work with all types of cable box.

If your cable box does not respond to any code, you cannot use the Controller to change cable box channels. In this case, make sure to leave the cable box turned on and tuned to the proper channel before the scheduled start time of timer recording.

Contact your cable company about the possibility of exchanging your current cable box with the one compatible with your VCR.

The VCR can only change the cable box channel through the Controller during timer recording.

If your cable box cannot be operated with a Remote (because it has no remote sensor), you cannot use the Controller to change its channels. Make sure to leave the cable box turned on and tuned to the proper channel before the scheduled start time of timer recording.

If the VCR’s memory backup expires because of a power failure, set the cable box input channel and brand again.

For customers in U.S.A.: If you are unable to set the Controller, contact your Marantz authorized dealer.

The VCR can automatically change the DBS receiver channels using the Controller when the VCR has been programed using Express timer programing ( pg. 38). Because satellite programing does not use PlusCode, the Controller cannot change the DBS receiver channels during VCR Plus+ timer recording.

(You can also use “Satellite Auto Recording” ( pg. 62) if your DBS receiver is equipped with a timer.)

If a cable box is also used, it is recommended that you connect the DBS receiver to your VCR’s audio/video input connectors and the cable box to your VCR’s antenna input terminal.

Installing Controller

1 Situate Controller

Place the Controller so that its transmitter is facing the DBS receiver’s remote sensor.

Make sure the path between the Controller and the DBS receiver’s remote sensor is not blocked.

2 Attach Controller

Fix securely using the adhesive strip attached on the back of the Controller.

3Connect DBS receiver to VCR

If your DBS receiver does not have audio/

video output connectors

Connect the RF output terminal on the DBS receiver to the ANTENNA IN terminal on the rear of your VCR.

If your DBS receiver has audio/video output connectors

Connect an audio/video cable between the AUDIO/VIDEO IN connectors on the rear of the VCR and the audio/video output connectors on the DBS receiver.

NOTE:

When connecting your DBS receiver, refer to its instruction manual.

Timer

Programing

Turn on the VCR and the TV, and select the AV mode on the TV.

Set the VCR/TV/CABLE/DBS selector on the Remote to “VCR”.

POWER 1

Timer recording allows you to program the VCR to automatically record a broadcast at some future time. Up to 24 timer recording programs can be made using VCR Plus+ timer programing or Express timer programing method ( pg. 38) as far as a year in advance.

The VCR Plus+ timer programing system eliminates the need to input channel, date, start and stop time data when programing timer recording settings. Simply key in the PlusCode number for the TV broadcast you wish to record and the VCR’s timer will be automatically programed. (The PlusCode programing numbers are the numbers next to the program in most TV listing.)

1 Load a cassette

Make sure the record safety tab is intact. If not, cover the hole with adhesive tape, then load it into the VCR.

The VCR turns on, and the counter is reset, automatically.

IMPORTANT

If you have moved to a different area or if a broadcasting station’s channel number has been changed, the wrong VCR CH or CABLE CH number will be displayed on the Program screen in step 5. When this happens, set the correct guide channel number for that station. ( pg. 36, “Changing VCR Plus+ Setting”)

NOTES:

Even if a power failure occurs, the VCR keeps your timer programs. However, the clock time is lost if it lasts for more than 10 minutes.

As a result, when the power is supplied again to this VCR after the power failure, the following will take place.

1.This VCR starts Auto Clock Set automatically to restore the clock time.

2.If the clock time is restored correctly and “AUTO TIMER” is set to “ON”, each timer program you have made will start at its start time unless its end time has elapsed.

If the tape reaches its end during timer recording, “”, “”, and “ #” blink.

To timer-record cable channels received through a cable box, be sure to keep the cable box turned on.

IMPORTANT

If you have moved to a different area or if a broadcasting station’s channel number has been changed, the wrong VCR CH or CABLE CH number will be displayed on the Program screen ( step 5 on page 35). When this happens, perform the following steps to set the correct guide channel number for that station.

To ensure that VCR Plus+ timer recording operates correctly, it is necessary to set the VCR Plus+ “Guide Channel Set” for each station. Read the following information carefully.

VCR Plus+ guide channel matching

The VCR Plus+ programing system assigns a VCR Plus+ guide channel to the TV channels and the cable channels. These guide channel numbers are also called the VCR Plus+ channel codes. TV listings often have a section in chart form, indicating the guide channel number assigned to each station. For accurate VCR Plus+ programing, the VCR Plus+ guide channel number for each station should match the channel number on which it is received in your area.

NOTES:

In many instances, the VCR Plus+ guide channel numbers for cable and broadcast TV stations DO NOT match the channel number on which it is received by your VCR or cable box.

Check your TV listing, or contact your cable supplier for details.

Many TV stations can be viewed on cable. Check your TV listing, or contact your cable supplier for details.

Other Useful functions for timer recording

You can also use the following functions for timer recording.

Auto Timer ( pg. 57)

When “AUTO TIMER” is set to “ON”, the timer recording standby mode is automatically engaged when the VCR is turned off. It is temporarily canceled when the VCR is turned on. You do not have to press TIMER () to engage or disengage the timer recording standby mode.

Auto SP = EP Timer (S-VHS/VHS only) ( pg. 57)

If you press NAVI while Video Navigation is deactivated, the Navigation Set Up screen appears. Set "NAVIGATION" to "ON" ( pg. 43).

Video Navigation playback is possible only with the tape recorded on this VCR.

To record the date and time as the program title in this VCR's memory, make sure the VCR’s clock is set correctly before recording.

To record the program information in this VCR’s memory, you must record each program for over the minimum recording time; 5 min for the D-VHS (HS) mode, 10 min for the D-VHS (STD) mode, 30 min for the D-VHS (LS3) mode, 50 min for the D-VHS (LS5) mode, 5 min for the S-VHS/VHS (SP) mode and 15 min for S-VHS/VHS (EP) mode.

Video Navigation may not work properly for some tapes.

During playback or when searching for the beginning of a program, a VCR might find two different tape numbers recorded on a tape. After you remove this tape, the tape will be assigned just one tape number (the smaller one). After this, the higher tape number will be missing from the memory’s tape number list.

Tape program information is stored in this VCR’s memory. If this VCR’s memory is damaged and the program information is lost, it is impossible to restore that information.

After recording a tape on this VCR, write the tape number on a label and affix the label to the tape in order to allow you to find the tape by its number.

When you record a TV program on this VCR, the VCR automatically records the recording start time, date, and channel in each program title. If the tape is recorded for the first time, the tape number and the date and time are recorded in the tape title. You can then edit the tape title and the program titles as you like. You can also edit the category in the program title.

In short, you can use the Video Navigation function to create your own video tape library.

OTHER USEFUL FUNCTIONS (cont.)

Video settings [VIDEO FUNCTION]

* The default setting is bold in the table below.

V. CALIBRATION

When this function is set to “ON”, this VCR checks the condition of the

(S-VHS/VHS only)

tape in use during playback and recording, and compensates to provide

the highest-possible pictures. This takes place whenever you play back a

ON

tape or start recording after inserting a tape.

OFF

NOTES:

 

 

 

 

During playback, this function is always working even though

 

“VIDEO CALIBRATION” appears just at the beginning of automatic tracking.

 

During recording, this function works only for the first SP recording and the first

 

EP recording on an inserted tape.

 

For timer recording, this function checks the tape condition both for the SP

 

recording and the EP recording before the first timer recording starts.

 

When you play back rental tapes or tapes recorded on other VCRs, set this

 

function either “ON” or “OFF” whichever gives you the best picture.

 

 

PICTURE CONTROL

This function helps you to adjust the playback picture quality according

(S-VHS/VHS only)

to your preference.

AUTO:

Normally select this. Picture quality is adjusted

AUTO (NORM)

(NORM)

automatically.

EDIT

 

When “V. CALIBRATION” is “OFF”, “NORM” will appear

SOFT

 

 

instead of “AUTO”. The quality is not adjusted

SHARP

 

 

automatically when “NORM” appears.

 

 

 

EDIT:

and playback).

 

SOFT:

Reduces image coarseness when viewing overplayed tapes

 

 

containing much noise.

 

SHARP: Clearer, sharper-edged picture when viewing images with

 

 

much flat, same-colored surfaces such as cartoons.

 

NOTES:

 

 

When you select “EDIT”, “SOFT” or “SHARP”, the selected mode will not

 

change until you select again.

 

Select “EDIT” when you are editing tapes ( pg. 67). After you finish editing the

 

tapes, select “AUTO” (“NORM” when “V. CALIBRATION” is “OFF”.)

“DIGITAL R3” set to “OFF”.

 

If you use this VCR as the playback VCR for editing, be sure to set “DIGITAL

 

R3” to “OFF” before starting.

 

 

VIDEO STABILIZER

When this function is set to “ON”, you can correct vertical vibrations in

(S-VHS/VHS only)

the picture when playing back unstable recordings made on another

VCR.

 

ON

 

This function is available only when playing back tapes recorded in EP mode.

OFF

NOTES:

 

 

 

 

When you finish viewing a tape, be sure to set this function to “OFF”.

 

Regardless of the setting, this function has no effect during recording and during

 

special effects playback.

and when you record in MP2 format.

 

PCM&STANDARD: Select this when the sound quality is important.

 

 

When you record the analog signals or DV signals

 

 

from the camcorder in STD mode, PCM audio is

 

 

also recorded in addition to MP2 audio. In HS

 

 

mode, PCM audio is automatically recorded.

DV AUDIO REC

Up to four audio signal channels can be input from a DV camcorder

AUDIO1

through the DV IN connector (i.LINK). This VCR allows you to select

AUDIO2

and record two of these channels. This setting is used to specify which

two channels to record.

OTHER USEFUL FUNCTIONS (cont.)

 

* The default setting is bold in the table below.

 

 

S-VHS MODE

You can determine which recording mode — either S-VHS mode or VHS mode — is

ON

used for recording on D-VHS and S-VHS tapes.

When this function is set to “ON”, you can record on D-VHS and S-VHS tapes with

OFF

S-VHS picture quality.

S-VHS mode allows you to make high quality video recordings with horizontal resolution of 400

 

lines, comparing with the 230 lines of resolution of conventional VHS recordings. To achieve the

 

highest quality picture we recommend to record in S-VHS mode. (But remember that a

 

conventional VHS VCR without SQPB cannot play back S-VHS tapes recorded in S-VHS mode.)

 

S-VHS MODE setting does not affect recording on VHS tapes. Recording on VHS tapes is always

 

performed in VHS mode except when using S-VHS ET mode ( pg. 59).

 

 

AV COMPU-LINK

The REMOTE PAUSE/AV COMPULINK terminal on the rear panel can be used as either

ON

the REMOTE PAUSE terminal or the AV COMPULINK terminal.

 

OFF

When this function is set to “ON”, you can use this terminal as the AV COMPULINK

 

terminal.

 

By connecting JVC’s AV COMPULINK components (see the diagram below), including

 

amplifiers (or receivers) and televisions, one touch control of the audio and video

 

components linked via their AV COMPULINK connectors becomes possible.

 

For example: simply load a cassette in the VCR and press PLAY ( 3 ) so that the AV COMPULINK

 

components automatically turn on, the TV’s AV mode is selected and the VCR starts playback. (You

 

do not have to press PLAY ( 3 ) if the cassette’s record safety tab is removed.)

 

When this function is set to “OFF”, you can use this terminal as the REMOTE PAUSE

 

terminal ( pg. 67).

NOTES:

When the remote control code is set to “C” or “D”, the connector cannot be used as AV COMPULINK terminal even if “AV COMPU-LINK” is set to “ON”. It is recommended to set the remote control code to “A” when you use this function. ( pg. 71).

Connection varies depending on the type of JVC TV you have. Refer to the TV’s instruction manual when making this connection.

S-VHS ET does not work with S-VHS tapes.

To keep the highest quality recording and playback pictures over a long period of time, S-VHS recording on S-VHS tapes is recommended.

Use of high grade tapes are recommended for S-VHS ET recordings.

On some tapes, picture quality will not improves even if the S-VHS ET function is used. Check the recording quality before you start important recordings.

You can play back S-VHS ET recordings on most of S-VHS VCRs and of VHS VCR equipped with SQPB (S-VHS QUASI PLAYBACK) function. (Notice some VCRs are not compatible with this function.)

While playing back a tape recorded with this function on some tapes, noise may appear. (If playback picture becomes blurred or interrupted, use a cleaning cassette.)

During special effect playback ( pg. 31), noise may appear. If special effect playback is performed frequently on a tape recorded with this function, the tape may be damaged and picture may be deteriorated.

EN 61

What is “i.LINK”?

“i.LINK” is a digital serial interface that allows devices equipped with an i.LINK connector to exchange digital video signals, digital audio signals, and device control signals bi-directionally over a single cable.

i.Link refers to the IEEE1394-1995 industry specification and extensions thereof. Thelogo is used for products compliant with the i.Link standard.

i.LINK Connection Examples

Examples of good i.LINK connections and bad i.LINK connections are shown below. The digital signals flow to all connected devices. When connecting i.LINK devices, make sure that the devices are connected in such a way that digital signals do not return (loop back) to the device that output them. Looped connection is not permitted.

This VCR uses a four-pin i.LINK connector to input and output MPEG2 video signals, audio signals, and control signals. The i.LINK connector is also used as an input for DV compressed signals from the DV output of a digital video camera.

i.LINK Connection

i.LINK-compatible devices can be connected in daisy chain fashion using i.LINK cables.

A to D: i.LINK-compatible

 

 

 

devices

Any two devices in the daisy chain can exchange data bi-directionally, even if there are other devices connected between them.

i.LINK also supports a “repeater function” that passes input MPEG2 and DV signals through to the next device in the chain.

i.LINK Branched Connection

If you are connecting a device that is equipped with three or more i.LINK connectors, you can also branch the i.LINK connection.

C: Device with three i.LINK connectors

You can connect as many as 63 devices (including this VCR) through an i.LINK connection. If you use a branched i.LINK connection, however, the maximum path length on a branch is 17 devices.

In the case of a personal computer and some other devices, data is not passed along by those devices if the device power is off. For details, refer to the instruction manual for the connected device.

Furthermore, data is not passed along by this VCR when "POWER SAVE" is set to "ON" on this VCR ( pg. 57) and the VCR is turned off.

The maximum data transfer speed supported by the i.LINK connector on this VCR is 400Mbps (approximately 400 megabits per second). The maximum data transfer speed that is actually attained may be slower depending on how this VCR is used or if a device with a slower transfer speed is connected to this VCR.

Use the S400 i.LINK cable.

2 Load a cassette

Make sure the record safety tab is intact.

3 Set recording speed

Press REC SPEED to set the recording speed.

4 Engagemode Satellite Auto Recording standby

Turn off the DBS receiver.

Press and hold REC LINK on the Remote for more than 2 seconds.

The VCR turns off automatically and the “L-1” and “‰” appears on the front display panel (Satellite Auto Recording standby mode).

When the DBS receiver outputs a signal, the VCR starts recording and the “L-1” blinks and the record () indicator lights. The VCR stops recording and powers off when the DBS receiver stops outputting a signal.

Each time you press the button, Satellite Auto Recording standby mode turns on and off. When it is off, “L-1” disappears.

IMPORTANT: Be sure not to turn on the DBS receiver before the program starts broadcasting; otherwise, the VCR will start recording when the DBS receiver is turned on.

NOTES:

While the Satellite Auto Recording standby mode or after Satellite Auto Recording is finished, the VCR will not enter the timer recording standby mode even though “AUTO TIMER” is set to “ON” ( pg. 57).

If you turn off this VCR while Satellite Auto Recording is in progress, recording stops.

Video Calibration ( pg. 54) does not work while Satellite Auto Recording is in progress.

Auto Clock ( pg. 11) does not work while in the Satellite Auto Recording standby mode.

The VCR may not record a short portion at the beginning of the program or may record slightly longer than the actual length of the program when Satellite Auto Recording method is used.

If you engage the Satellite Auto Recording standby mode while the DBS receiver is turned on, the VCR will not start Satellite Auto Recording, and “L-1” and “” blink on the front display panel. When you turn off the DBS receiver, “L-1” and “” light up and the VCR enters the Satellite Auto Recording standby mode.

If you have connected another component other than a DBS receiver (or cable box) to the AUDIO/VIDEO IN or S VIDEO IN (L-1) connectors, be sure not to engage the Satellite Auto Recording standby mode; otherwise, the VCR will start recording when the connected component is turned on.

Satellite Auto Recording and timer-recording cannot be performed at the same time.

If the “L-1” blinks quickly on the front display panel in the Satellite Auto Recording standby mode (even though your DBS receiver is turned off), Satellite Auto Recording will not work properly.

If this is the case, perform “Express Timer Programing” ( pg. 38) to timer-record a satellite program.

(Some DBS receivers output signals even if the power is off. Satellite Auto Recording is not possible with those DBS receivers.)

EDITING (cont.)

S-VIDEO/ VIDEO Connections

Various connection for editing tapes

The following three methods can be used for editing tapes.

VHS to S-VHS editing (VIDEO-VIDEO connection):

Although the picture quality is inherently limited by the original VHS quality, the edited tape has better picture quality than those made by VHS-to-VHS editing.

S-VHS to VHS editing (VIDEO-VIDEO connection):

Since the original source is recorded in S-VHS mode, the edited tape has better picture quality than those made by VHS-to-VHS editing.

S-VHS to S-VHS editing (S-VIDEO connection): Original picture quality of S-VHS made can be duplicated with minimal picture degradation. This is the best editing method you can use on S-VHS VCRs.

When “POWER SAVE” is set to “ON”, you can not change the remote control code. Before changing the code, set “POWER SAVE” to “OFF” ( pg. 57).

The Remote is capable of controlling four JVC video recorders independently. Each of VCRs can respond to one of four codes (A, B, C or D).

This Remote control is preset to send A code signals because your VCR is initially set to respond to A code signals. You can easily change your Remote and the VCR to send and respond to B, C or D code signals.

When using four JVC VCRs, set four VCRs and their Remotes to different codes, so that the Remotes can operate these VCRs separately.

1 Set remote operation mode

Set the VCR/TV/CABLE/DBS selector to “VCR”.

2 Set remote control code for Remote

1 Press and hold A/B/C/D.

2Press the Number key “1” for A code control signals, “2” for B code control signals, “3” for C code control signals, “4” for D code control signals.

3 Press STOP ( 7 ), and release A/B/C/D.

3 Turn off VCR

Press POWER on the VCR.

4 Check remote control code for VCR

Press PLAY (3) on the VCR for more than 5 seconds.

The code currently set appears on the front display panel.

5 Turn on VCR

Press POWER on the Remote.

The code transmitted from the Remote blinks for a few seconds on the front display panel.

After the code disappears on the front display panel, make sure that the VCR is turned on by pressing POWER on the Remote.

To control four VCRs with the same Remote

You can control four JVC VCRs by switching the remote control code for the Remote between A, B, C and D ( step 2), keeping four VCRs to different control codes.

Press the Number key “1” for A code control signals, “2” for B code control signals, “3” for C code control signals, “4” for D code control signals. (To change only the remote control code for the Remote, DO NOT perform steps 3 to 5.)

MOISTURE CONDENSATION

Moisture in the air will condense on the VCR when you move it from a cold place to a warm place, or under extremely humid conditions—just as water droplets form on the surface of a glass filled with cold liquid. Moisture condensation on the head drum will cause damage to the tape. In conditions where condensation may occur, keep the VCR turned on for a few hours to evaporate the moisture before inserting a tape.

ABOUT HEAD CLEANING

Accumulation of dirt and other particles on the video heads may cause the playback picture to become blurred or interrupted. Be sure to contact your Marantz authorized dealer if such troubles occur.

ATTENTION

This VCR contains microcomputers. External electronic noise or interference can cause microcomputer to malfunction. If the VCR does not operate correctly switch its power off and unplug the AC power cord from the AC supply. Wait for a while and then plug the power back in. Eject and check the condition of the cassette. If everything appears normal, you can operate the VCR as usual.

MARANTZ EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AND SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY AND ALL DAMAGES, CLAIMS OR LIABILITIES, DIRECT OR INDIRECT, ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THE USE OF THIS PRODUCT WITH ANY OTHER PRODUCT, DEVICE, COMPONENT, PART OR MATERIAL THAT IS NON-CONFORMING OR NON-COMPATIBLE WITH THIS PRODUCT.

EN 77

The following conditions are product features and do not indicate mechanical problems.

Playback of tapes recorded in D-VHS mode

You may see a mosaic (block) noise, grayed images, or a still image in cases of excessive distortion caused when playing back a damaged tape or when the heads are momentarily dirty.

It takes a moment after you press PLAY (3) until the image appears and sound is heard.

It takes a moment after you switch playback speeds (when switching from special effect playback to normal playback, for example) until the image appears and sound is heard. For a few seconds, the image may be played back out of synch with the sound.

Searching images on D-VHS tapes

The images appear frame by frame.

Block noise may appears on the bottom half of images.

When the blank portion is reached, a still scene of the last recorded image is displayed.

The picture stops/There is no sound

When two or more devices are connected to this VCR with the i.LINK cable (a camcorder and another i.LINK-compatible device), do not turn on the camcorder if you record a program from an another i.Link-compatible device. Turning on and off the camcorder may cause momentary still images and loss of sound.

Image or sound is distorted

When recording from a camcorder connected to this VCR with the i.LINK cable, the image or sound may be distorted. If this occurs, insert a D-VHS cassette in the VCR and turn off and on the VCR, then start recording again. If the problem is not fixed, record using the audio/video input connectors instead of i.LINK connector.

Recording from camcorders and other devices via i.LINK connector

You may see a mosaic (block) noise.

For scenes with fast action, the image may jitter. This does not affect recording, which will proceed as usual.

When you watch the camcorder’s, search images through this VCR, the block noise may appear.

When you record audio-dubbed DVC cassettes (tapes which have four recorded channels), sound may not be heard for the first few seconds.

When you eject and insert D-VHS cassettes, the sound may be interrupted for an instant.

When you press REC SPEED to switch recording speed, the sound may be interrupted for an instant.

Incorrect image formatting for wide TVs

If you have connected two different devices using the S-video output connectors on the back of the VCR, the sensing signal for wide TVs may not be output correctly depending on the connected devices. If this occurs, use the TV controls to switch the screen size.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Q. When returning from variable-speed picture search to normal playback, the picture is disturbed. Should I be concerned about this?

A. No, it is normal.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Q. When playing back programs that have been timerrecorded consecutively (such one program from 8:00 to 9:00 and another one from 9:00 to 10:00), the picture and sound become momentarily distorted where the first program ends and the second program begins. Is this a malfunction?

A. No. This is normal.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Q.Other than preventing further recording, what effect does removing the safety tab have?

A.It disables marking of index codes and tape numbers

for Video Navigation.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Q. Sometimes, during index search, the VCR cannot find the program I want to see. Why not?

A. There may be index codes too close together.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Q.During playback, on-screen display sometimes jitters. Why does this happen?

A.If the condition of the tape being played back is not good, jittering of the video (including on-screen display) may occur.

RECORDING

Q.When I pause and then resume a recording, the end of the recording before the pause is overlapped by the new recording. Why does this happen?

A.This is normal. It reduces distortion at the pause and

resume points.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Q.Can the VCR indefinitely remain in the recording pause mode?

A.No. The VCR automatically stops after 5 minutes to protect the heads. When paused during Instant Timer Recording (ITR), the VCR shuts off automatically after

5 minutes.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Q.What happens if the tape reaches its end during recording?

A.The VCR stops, then “” and “#” blink on the front display panel.

TIMER RECORDING

Q.” and “‰” remain lit on the front display panel.

Is there a problem?

A.No. This is a normal condition for a timer recording

in progress.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Q.Can I program the timer while I’m watching a tape or a TV broadcast?

A.Yes, but while you are setting the timer you will not see the tape’s or broadcast program’s picture as it is replaced by the on-screen menu. (The sound from the tape or broadcast program will be heard during the timer setting.)

Digital Broadcasts and D-VHS

Great changes in the entertainment and media industries are transforming the way we use VHS, and digital broadcasting is a good example of what the future holds. Digital broadcasting now allows more efficient use of the limited broadcast spectrum besides delivering highdefinition video, outstanding sound quality, multiple channels, and multiple features.

Meanwhile, VHS has evolved with the advances in broadcasting in response to the need for continued use of existing VHS resources and the trend toward digital broadcasts.

Digital broadcasting is not limited to transmissions of audio and video content. A variety of other data can be sent as well. As the means to record all of these digital signals while supporting playback of the extensive VHS library of analog tapes, D-VHS was developed.

This VCR is equipped with an MPEG-2 encoder and decoder (codec) for digital recording and playback of analog signals.

D-VHS is the key to a smooth transition from analog to digital formats. This next-generation home video technology lets us continue to enjoy home video entertainment as popularized in the last century well into the next.

Linear PCM Audio

Conventional D-VHS recording uses MPEG-1 Layer 2 compression to record analog audio digitally.

For recording without compression, this VCR also features PCM recording (pulse code modulation: 48 kHz, 16-bit, 1536 kbps).

Used with high-resolution HS/STD mode, it offers outstanding high-fidelity recording and playback. (Recording from audio input alone is not supported.)

Dolby Digital

A form of digital audio coding developed by Dolby Laboratories to deliver surround sound with 5.1 channels (front left and right, center, rear left and right, and a channel for LFE (low-frequency effects).

When you play back a digital tape encoded in Dolby Digital format, the Dolby Digital bistream is sent from the DIGITAL OUT OPTICAL connector.

Set “OPTICAL OUT” to “Dolby D” ( pg. 55).

Manufactured under license from Dolby Laboratories. "Dolby", "Pro Logic", and the double-D symbol are trademarks of Dolby Laboratories. Confidential unpublished works. Copyright 19921997 Dolby Laboratories. All rights reserved.

i.LINK

“i.LINK” is a digital serial interface that allows devices equipped with an i.LINK connector to exchange digital video signals, digital audio signals, and device control signals bi-directionally over a single cable.

i.Link refers to the IEEE1394-1995 industry specification and extensions thereof. The logo is used for products compliant with the i.Link standard.

MPEG2

Abbreviation for Moving Picture Experts Group, Phase 2. Unlike previous compression methods, MPEG-2 uses an extremely efficient compression method that supports high-definition video. Based on the principle that much video data remains unchanged from one frame to the next, predictive coding is performed to eliminate redundant data.

Specifically, compression is applied between frames (based on the correlation of frame data) and within frames (based on DCT, or discrete cosine transform) for an extremely efficient compression technique.
