Absolutely perfect! I've been trying to understand how to use all or at least some of the features of the receiver and especially the remote.
Copy of genuine owners/operators manual, very useful
The manual was a perfect match and was exactly what I was looking for. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
Thank you for having the manual I needed for an older model Aiwa stero I had found on Ebay --- I wanted the Aiwa because I had tapes and cd's but I did not have a manual as to how to operate the system... I found what I needed and it has enabled me to set the system up for my enjoyment.
I wished detailed information of the JBL S310 and here I found it! Very happy with the service from this site!
When B.E.S.T. (Biconditional Equalised Signal Tracking) system is set to âONâ, the recorder checks the condition of the tape in use during playback and recording, and compensates to provide the highest-possible pictures. When B.E.S.T. works, âbEStâ appears blinking on the display panel. B.E.S.T. takes place whenever you play back a tape or start recording after inserting a cassette.
B.E.S.T. â ON / OFF
The recorder checks the tape condition for about 7 seconds, then starts recording. To make sure you record the desired scene or programme completely, perform the following steps: A Press and hold 9, and press 7. After about 7 seconds, the recorder re-enters Record Pause mode. B Press 4 to start recording.
â If you have programmed the recorder to timer-record 2 or more programmes, do not use this function, but change the tape speed manually during timer programming. â There may be some noise and sound disturbance where the tape speed switches from SP to LP mode on the tape. â This function is not available during ITR (Instant Timer Recording), and will not work properly with any tapes longer than E-180 or with some tapes of shorter lengths. â If you perform timer recording with both this function and VPS/ PDC activated, and the programme goes beyond its originally scheduled length, sometimes the programme cannot be recorded in its entirety.
POWER SAVE â ON / OFF
When this function is set to âONâ, you can reduce the power consumption while the recorder is turned off.
PICTURE CONTROL â AUTO(NORM) / EDIT / SOFT
This function helps you to adjust the playback picture quality according to your preference. AUTO(NORM): Normally select this. Picture quality is adjusted automatically. When âB.E.S.T.â is âOFFâ, âNORMâ will appear instead of âAUTOâ. EDIT: Minimizes picture degradation during editing (recording and playback). SOFT: Reduces image coarseness when viewing overplayed tapes containing much noise.
Select âEDITâ when you are editing tapes. After you finish editing, select âAUTOâ.
â During Power Save mode, â¢ the display panel is turned off, â¢ the Just Clock does not work, â¢ and the picture may be distorted momentarily when you turn on/off the recorder. â Power Save does not work in the following cases: â¢ When âL-2 SELECTâ is set to âDECODERâ or âSATâ, â¢ or when the recorder is in the timer recording standby mode, â¢ or in the Automatic Satellite Programme Recording mode, â¢ or when the recorderâs power is turned off after timerrecording or ITR (Instant Timer Recording).
AUTO TIMER â ON / OFF
â When this function is set to âONâ: The timer recording standby mode is automatically engaged when the recorder is turned off. It is temporarily cancelled when the recorder is turned on. You do not have to press # to engage or disengage the timer recording standby mode. â When this function is set to âOFFâ: Press # to engage or disengage the timer recording standby mode.
L-2 SELECT â A/V / DECODER / SAT
Select the appropriate mode depending on the type of unit connected to the L-2 IN/DECODER connector of the recorder. A/V: To use the recorder as the recording deck with the player connected to the L-2 IN/DECODER connector, or to use the satellite receiver connected to the L-2 IN/DECODER connector. DECODER: To use a decoder connected to the L-2 IN/DECODER connector. â When you select a country in Central or Eastern Europe for country setting, you cannot use a decoder with this recorder. SAT: To view a satellite programme with the TV set while the recorder is turned off. â When the recorder is in stop or recording mode, press TV/VCR to turn off the VCR indicator on the display panel. If you turn on the recorder when the satellite receiverâs power is off, nothing appears on the screen. In this case, turn on the satellite receiver, or set the TV to its TV mode, or press TV/VCR to set the recorder to the video mode.
âAUTO TIMERâ does not work if âPOWER SAVEâ is set to âONâ. When this function is set to âONâ, various recorder status information (on-screen display) appears on the screen.
O.S.D. â ON / OFF
When you use the recorder as the source player for editing a tape, be sure to set this function to âOFFâ. Otherwise, the recorder status information will be recorded on the edited tape.

COLOUR SYSTEM â PAL/NTSC / MESECAM
You can play back PAL, NTSC and MESECAM tapes, or record PAL and SECAM* signals on this recorder. Select the appropriate colour system.

â When you use this function, be sure to use a TV offering T-V LINK, etc. and connect a fully-wired 21-pin SCART cable between the recorder and the TV. â When âDIRECT RECâ is set to âONâ, if you press any button just after pressing 7 on the recorder (or 7 and 4 on the remote control), the recorder may not function properly.
PAL/NTSC: To record PAL signals, or playback a PAL or NTSC tape. MESECAM: To record SECAM signals, or play back a MESECAM tape.
About NTSC Playback â Some TVs shrink the picture vertically and place black bars at the top and bottom of the screen, or cut off the top and bottom portions of superimposed displays. This is not a malfunction. â The picture may roll up and down. This can be corrected if your TV has the V-HOLD control function. â The counter and tape remaining time readings will be incorrect. â During search, still, or frame-by-frame playback, the picture will be distorted, and there may be a loss of colour.
AUTO SP]LP TIMER â ON / OFF
When this function is set to âONâ, the recorder automatically switches to LP mode to allow complete recording if there is not enough tape to record the entire programme while timerrecording in SP mode. For example, recording a programme of 210 minutes in length onto a 180 minute tape. Approximately 150 minutes Approximately 60 minutes SP mode Total 210 minutes LP mode
