Description of operation
Normal operation
When the tape is fast forwarded or
rewound, it stops near the BEGIN
When the tape is played as far as the
END point, it is rewound to the BEGIN
point where it stops.
When the tape is played as far as the
END point, it is rewound to the BEGIN
point and played, and this sequence of
operations is repeated.
Press the MENU button.
A confirmation screen now appears. The settings are
stored in the memory if the PLAY button is now pressed.
The picture quality deteriorates when repeat playback is
initiated for the same tape over and over again. As a
general rule of thumb, replace the tape with a new one
after playing back the tape for about 100 times.
The output images to be displayed while the tape is being
rewound to the BEGIN point in the repeat playback mode
can be set using menu item No.163 REPT MODE.
If "FREEZE" is selected as the REPT MODE setting and
the tape end has been set as the END point, the playback
image will not be frozen properly. Set the END point at a
place on the tape where images have been recorded.
If the counter display mode (TC or CTL), which was
established when menu item No.161 CTL (TC) BGN and
No.162 END were set, is different from the counter display
mode (TC or CTL) in which repeat playback is to be
initiated, the repeat lamp flashes, and the repeat playback
operation cannot be performed.
When consumer-use DV and DVCAM tapes are used, the
repeat playback mode is disabled.
