Whilst this is a photo copy, and some of the pages are a little askew, it was all readable and intact. A real bonus finding an old manual for a classic piece of kit that no other site had.
It was easy done, and I got exactly what I was looking for.
Text excerpt from page 38 (click to view)
1. Whistling or howling is heard from the TV during camcorder recording. 2. When scanning channels, some of them are skipped over.
â The camcorderâs microphone is too close to the TV. â The TVâs volume is too high. â Those channels have been designated to be skipped.
Position the camcorder so its microphone is away from the TV. Turn the TVâs volume down. If you need the skipped channels, restore them ( pg. 31).
3. The channel cannot be changed.
â Recording is in progress.
Press PAUSE to pause the recording, change channels, then press PLAY to resume recording. Perform manual setting again.
4. Channel settings that were made manually seem to have changed or disappeared. 5. No channels are stored in the recorder's memory.
â After the manual settings were made, Auto Channel Set was performed. â The TV aerial cable was not connected to the recorder when Auto Set Up was performed.
Connect the TV aerial cable to the recorder properly and turn off the recorder power once, then turn the recorder power back on again. The recorder will try Auto Set Up again ( pg. 4). Replace the lithium battery with a new one. ( pg. 5)
6. "--:--" is displayed on the front display panel after a power outage.
