I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.
Being a user of older radios of many kinds, preferring them over more modern rigs, this manual was invaluable in the programming of my two. I now know for certain what the assorted buttons functions are, and am very grateful to have found this excellent site. Many thanks for your assistance, Tony.

This unit uses consumables or components that will wear off. If a worn-out or deteriorated component continues to be used, it may cause the unit to break down. To prevent this, perform routine maintenance using the head-cleaning tape. With the head-cleaning tape alone, however, the entire tape-winding mechanism cannot be completely cleaned. Perform regular maintenance of the components as shown below.
Use a JVC cleaning tape. Follow the instructions below for using the cleaning tape.
Under low humidity conditions, (10% RH to 30% RH), perform head cleaning at intervals of half of the periods stated in the table. If an M-DV80 tape is used immediately after cleaning, the message, âHEAD CLEANING REQUIRED!â may not disappear. It does only after the tape has run for some time. Use the cleaning tape at room temperature (10Â°C to 35Â°C). Instructions for using the cleaning tape stated on a sheet inside its storage case may be different in part from those stated here. Follow the instructions in this manual.

â¢ When this unit is moved from a cold to a warm place abruptly, the vapor in the warm air will come into contact with the head drum or the tape guides, which are not warmed enough. When chilled, the vapor turns into droplets of water. This state is known as condensation. When condensation occurs, the videotape adheres to the head drum or the tape guides and will be damaged. â¢ Condensation occurs on this unit in the following circumstances: * It is moved abruptly Head drum from a cold place to a warm place. * It is used in a place immediately after the heater has been turned on, or when cold breeze from an air-conditioner blows onto it. * It is used at a place of high humidity. When a cassette tape is loaded, do not transport e.g., from a cold outdoor place to a warm room thus subjecting the unit to drastic temperature changes. After moving the unit, do not use it until the inner mechanism stabilizes. â¢ When condensation occurs, the monitor displays the following warning:
â¢ Recording or playing back with a dirty head will result in block noise or disrupted sound. Perform regular head cleaning to maintain superior image and sound quality. â¢ If the head is dusty, âHEAD CLEANING REQUIRED!â will be displayed on the monitor when this unit plays a tape.

Leave the unit with the power ON and wait until the WARNING message disappears.
â¢ For information on how to use the head cleaning tape and the relevant remarks, refer to Xpage 9, âCleaning tapeâ.
â¢ Prevention of condensation When transporting BR-HD50 from a cold to a warmer place abruptly, first remove the cassette tape. Then place BR-HD50 in a plastic bag and seal it before transporting. Take out BR-HD50 from the sealed plastic bag only after it has the same temperature as the surroundings.
