Explanation/Solution
Check that the power plug is connected to a wall outlet.
Have you pressed the VCR STANDBY/ON (STANDBY/ON)
button?
A video cassette can only be inserted with the window
side up and the safety tab facing you.
Check the VCR aerial connections.
Is the VCR tuner properly set?
Check if the safety tab is intact on the cassette.
Was the VCR STANDBY/ON (STANDBY/ON) button pressed
to activate the timer?
Re-check the recording start/stop time settings.
If there was a power failure or interruption during timer
recording, the recording will have been cancelled.
Check to see if you are using a prerecorded tape.
Check the TUNER/EXTERNAL setting. It should be on
TUNER.
Check the TV/VCR aerial connections.
Press the PROG/TRK (
or
) / TRK (
or
) buttons to
minimize this effect.
A still picture may have "noise bars", depending on the condition
of the tape. Press the PROG/TRK (
or
) /TRK (
buttons during SLOW motion to minimize this effect.
If poor pictures appear on a variety of cassettes, the video
heads may need cleaning. This is not a common problem
and unless it appears, the heads should not be cleaned.
When cleaning the video heads, read all instructions
provided with the head cleaning cassette. Incorrect head
cleaning can permanently damage the video heads.
1. Remove the aerial input plug from the socket marked (aerial
symbol) on the rear of the VCR.
2. Carry out the instructions "Tuning Your Television for the VCR"
(see page 15).
3. Carry out the instructions "Setting the VCR output Channel"
(see page 17), move the channel number several channels
down from the original setting. (example: from 60 to 57).
4. Replace the aerial plug into the socket marked (aerial symbol)
on the rear of the VCR.
5. Re-tune your TV to the VCR again by following instructions
"Tuning Your Television for the VCR" (page 15).
6. If the problem still exists repeat steps 1 to 5 moving several
more channels away from the original setting.
