• Remove the dew in the Recorder.
• Check that the disc is recorded in PAL format.
• The Recorder cannot playback video which was not recorded normally.

• There is no sound during still mode, slow motion playback, fast forward and fast reverse.
• DVD audio recorded in DTS is only output from the DIGITAL AUDIO Output terminals. Connect a DTS-
compatible digital amplifier or decoder to the DIGITAL AUDIO Output OPTICAL or COAXIAL terminal on this
Recorder.
• Check that the audio cable is connected correctly.

to your TV.
