5 RECORDING Basic Operations
3 Adjust the Hi-Fi recording level. a. Set the REC LEVEL switch to "MANUAL". b. Select Hi-Fi audio with the AUDIO OUT SELECT button. (See page 18). c. Adjust the recording level and L/R balance. While checking with the audio level meter, adjust with the REC LEVEL and BALANCE knobs, set the level so that maximum volume causes the meters to vary between 0dB to 4dB. Perform adjustment carefully, as too low a recording level may lead to a greater noise and too high a level may cause a distortion. 4 Start recording. a. Press the REC button, whereupon recording starts. b. Press the PAUSE/STILL button for a brief pause of recording. c. Pressing the PLAY button resumes recording. d. Press the STOP button to bring recording to an end. Notes: â VHS recording is not possible with S-VHS cassette. â When pause remains for longer than five minutes, the machine automatically stops recording to protect tape and video head from damage.
How to Check the Tape Remaining Time
Press the COUNTER/REMAIN button during recording or playback. Every press of the button changes the display, alternating between counter reading and tape remaining time. Notes: â The tape remaining time is just an approximation you can refer to. â Depending on the type of tape used, there may be times when the tape remaining time reading may not appear right away or is not correct.
You can cut unnecessary parts of a program during recording. This facility does not work when a W-VHS tape is used. a. With the recording pause mode engaged, search for the beginning of the unnecessary part (where you want to adjoin the program) with JOG dial or SHUTTLE ring. b. Let go of the JOG/SHUTTLE at the start of the unnecessary part. The unit enters the pause mode when you do this. c. Press PLAY button at the part of the program you want to continue recording. Recording resumes.
