Thank you for buying a Philips video recorder. This video recorder is one of the most sophisticated and easy-to-use video recorders (VCR) on the market. Please take the time to read this operating manual before using your video recorder. It contains important information and notes regarding operation. The video recorder should not be turned on immediately after transportation from a cold to a hot area or vice versa, or in conditions of extreme humidity. Wait at least three hours after transporting the device. The video recorder needs this time in order to become acclimatised to its new environment (temperature, air humidity, etc.). This video recorder is used for the recording and playback of VHS videocassettes. Cassettes with the VHS-C label (VHS cassettes for camcorders) may only be used with a suitable adapter. PAL We hope you enjoy your new video recorder.

Connecting your video recorder to the TV set
The necessary cable connections must be made before you can record or playback TV programmes using your video recorder. We recommend that you use a scart cable to connect your TV and video recorder. What is a scart cable? The scart or Euro AV cable serves as the universal connector for picture, sound and control signals. With this type of connection, there is practically no loss of quality during the picture or sound transfer. *You can have the Hi-fi sound on the TV only with a scart cable.
My TV has several scart sockets. Which one should I use? Select that scart socket which is suited for the video output as well as for the video input. My TV has a configuration menu for the scart socket. Please configure this scart socket as InputOutput.

Then, read the paragraph 'Preparation for use' in the chapter 'Installing your video recorder'. My screen is empty Many TVs are switched to the programme number for the scart socket by way of a control signal sent through the scart cable. If the TV does not automatically switch to the scart socket programme number, manually change to the corresponding programme number on your TV (see your TV's operating instructions).
7. Save this programme number setting on your
TV for video recorder operation. You can find more details in chapter 'Preparation for use'.

3. Playback

Playing cassettes

You can operate the video recorder using the remote control or the buttons on the front of the video recorder. If you press PLAY , STOP , FWD or REW while the set is in Stand-by, the power will be automatically turned on. Additionally, if a cassette was already inserted, the corresponding operation will be performed. Your video recorder can only record and play standard VHS cassettes. 1. Put a cassette into the cassette slot. The cassette is inserted automatically. ' ' will appear on the display. 2. Press PLAY B-K to view the tape. DIGITAL STUDIO PICTURE CONTROL Philips has developed a system which produces the best possible playback quality. For old and often-used video cassettes, this system reduces interference. For new or high quality cassettes, it emphasises the details. Picture/ sound quality is poor When playing rental videos or older, poorer quality cassettes, it may not be possible to completely filter out picture and sound interference. This is not a fault in your machine. Read the section 'Manual tracking'.
Displaying current tape position
The following information is displayed on the screen: e.g.: 0:02:45 shows the counter in hours, minutes and seconds. SP/LP: will show the recorded speed of your cassette 'REM 0:06': will show the actual amount of playing/recording time left on the tape in hours and minutes. When you play an NTSC cassette, the video recorder will show 'REM -:--'. How can I set the counter to '0:00:00'? You can set the counter to '0:00:00' with CLEAR. When you put a cassette in the video recorder, the counter will automatically reset to '0:00:00'. The counter does not move This occurs when there are no recordings on a portion of a tape. This is not a fault in your video recorder. The screen shows '-0:01:20' If you rewind a cassette from the tape position '0:00:00', the counter will show for instance, '-0:01:20' (the cassette was rewound to 1 minute and 20 seconds before '0:00:00'). '-:--' is displayed in the 'REM' counter This counter will automatically recognise the length of the tape. In addition, when you put in a cassette the video recorder must first calculate the time played. Therefore, '-:--' appears first and only after the tape has been running for a few seconds, the correct playing time will be shown.

3. To stop the playback, press

STOP/EJECT

STOP C-L or on the video recorder. 4. To eject the cassette, press STOP/EJECT when the video recorder stops the playback.
Automatic switch-off of special functions Many functions (e.g. pause, still picture) switch themselves off automatically after a short time in order to protect the cassette and to save energy. Do I need to change the playback speed when playing back LP recordings? During playback, the correct speed will automatically be selected. For more information, please read the section 'Selecting the recording speed (SP or LP)' in the chapter 'Manual recording'.
